    Destiny 2. Appears to be very polished but very linear and relatively short with little to no variety in the grindy side quests. I reckon they could easily have doubled it.

    Did you try LA Noire in VR? Did you see the vid out there of the guy messing around in it? Very funny!

    I have been replaying Portal 2 and it's still one of the best games ever made. Then it's onto Prey (thanks Steam sale)

    Agree about Portal 2, still a game I go back to often I think i have over 2000 hours on it and as for Prey one of the best games if frustrating at times, I have ever played.

    Just started Witcher 3. Does look glorious.

    Not got far in, still getting used to the 3rd person perspective after so much FO4. Not sure whether i'm ok with the mechanics or not yet - bit of a consoley feel tbh.

    Anyway, it's been so long since 1&2 I think I may just readup again on the backstory, up the difficulty and start over.

    But yeah, 1440p and everything maxed it looks lovely.

    I have to say I completely gave up even on the 10 hr trial I couldn't even make 5 hours in.

    I always get to a point in Witcher 3 where my interest in the story just dies, usually it happens shortly after reaching Skellige...
    I've restarted the game about six times now and still haven't managed to finish the main story.

    I had a look at the VR version of LA Noire but decided to hold off for a bit as I don't want to play it on two systems at once, plus it'll probably be cheaper in the next sale.

    Elite Dangerous

    Because Star Citizen isn't out yet and 3.0 really dropped the ball.

    Luckily, it's awesome.

    I am currently revisiting Borderlands 2.

    Have started afresh with Zero, aiming for a more close range shooty/stabby build, still early doors yet though...

    It’s good but for me the star of the set is The Pre-Sequel.

    The main problem I had with 2 was I hit a point where I was simply underpowered for the quests. I got around this in TPS by hoarding Shift keys and got a decent gun which let me push past. Ought to revisit BL2 and try again. After the disappointment of Destiny 2, the BL series is IMO the best sci-fi RPShooter series there is.

    Finished Portal 2
    The Last Tree was awful and I applied for a refund after 22 minutes
    1 hr of Kingdoms and Castles and it's quite entertaining.

    Project Cars 2 VR
    Onwards
    Lone Echo
    Elite Dangerous (Very late to the game, but this game in VR has taken my life...) :D

    Been thinking about getting LA Noire VR, but is it really worth £25 when I already own the original game?

    Kingdoms and Castles - After 3 hrs play, Banished was better.
    Went back to NorthGuard and since the updates with a new clan, there is now game stopping bugs (Healers don't heal, healing hut says no people). Not impressed. It was so good before :(
    Will try some Dirt 4 streamed to the ShieldTV tonight I think. Can't play Prey around the kids.

    Still Fallout 4. Far Harbour just effing rules. All it would need to be absolutely perfect is more buildings to explore inside.. But the graphics, the fog, etc it's like you're playing a bloody different game ffs !

    I've always played it on the easiest setting. Reason I do that is two fold. 1. If I continually die in a game I either smash things or stop playing it (the latter now I am older). and 2. You get less XP for a kill which means it takes longer to level up and thus makes the game take longer. I'm not in a hurry to play games like this, so that works very well for me.

    Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars – Director's Cut

    Yes, that's a 1996 game rereleased 2009 :grin:

    I played the original 1999ish and can't remember anything, but it was on a whole stack of CD's back then and now it's one WII disk.

    I've needed something a bit more chilled out so I've been building things in Space Engineers again, currently planning the layout for a modular space station.
    I may try restarting Witcher 3 for the hundredth time as it's one of those games that doesn't really require much effort... I always seem to get a little bit into the Skellige quests and get bored though.
