    Wasteland 3, I love it but holysh** is it a buggy mess! Crash on load (AV issue), licence loss (playing through games pass for PC) , the looooooooongest loading screens, stutters, loading lag in dialogue, urg... But its fantastic!

    I've had Wasteland 2 in my library for a LONG time now. Is it actually worth playing through the original before playing WL2 i.e. do the stories follow on?

    Shadowrun returns, faithful atmospheric remake of the old video games ... if you like point and click AD&D set in a cyberpunk future and its still free on the Epic store (which is probably the only reason to have the epic store, much like EA origin before they nixed the free game section)

    I had a burst of enthusiasm for old Need for Speed games last week, so bit on the sale of NFS: Heat. Most fun I've had in a NFS game in years. Way, way better than Rivals/Most Wanted Reboot/The Run.

    I also grabbed The Run, as it was four quid or something; but it hasn't grabbed me so far.

    My only real complaint about Heat is my usual about modern arcade racing games: obsession with drifting. Also the bright neon everywhere is troublesome in the night drives...

    Hollow Knight has me hooked. A friend introduced me to it about two weeks ago, I’m now 115 hours in with 58/63 achievements and loving it. And it’s an offline single player game. And I have 10-month-old twins sucking up my time. It’s that good.

    Basically a Metroidvania created with love and passion. I’ve played like one metroidvania before so it isn’t even my thang. The game has a lot of attention to detail, so many things done so well: the sound track, the combat, the responsive controls, the sense of exploration, the art, the atmosphere is incredible! And the NPCs with their awesome voice overs... there are so many areas where I’d consider it my favourite game.

    The boss fights are a highlight. Involves careful observation, learning their patterns, and actual movement and attack strats to succeed (or you just mash, although you won’t succeed until you start dodging at least a few of their attacks). Different play styles are effective - straight up melee, caster, minions, movement focused, tank etc.

    I personally find lots of replay value as I’m getting into the speedrunning scene. Others may prefer one playthrough at a time. Your first would probably be around 50 hours if you like to explore everything, less if you just waltz through. The puzzles and secrets are really well done, you can do almost everything alone with no outside help needed, since the subconscious hints and clues are just right.

    Highly recommend having a crack at it.

    You have me intrigued sir!

    It IS more-ish. But you need to know old style crpgs before you get excited. This game ain't easy. It will slap you sideways when you thought everything was ok. Save OFTEN. The number of times I had an epic battle, looted everything then moved on..only to get wiped 10 mins later..F**K! You'd think I'd learn..and I do for a while. But then the auto-saves lull you into feeling safe. BIG mistake.

    [Edit] Worth mentioning I like to push it. On the map take ya chances and rest. Mostly ok. In a dungeon you need rations, rations are heavy. So I push as far as I can with spells, skills, cannibalizing spells for heals.. Means you can get totally butt-fuc**d with no heals prepared, and no buffs cast. Some fights only work with all the buffs you can muster. Go in 'naked' and you might as well be a babe.

    Since I have done basically everything in Destiny 2 that I want to do, I am going to give The Division 2 a try again.

    Got to love having a 1Gb connection because it makes downloading large file size games, not really an issue.

    Crysis Remastered and Beyond Two Souls. The latter is incredible.

    I have plenty of newer games I should be playing... so of course I reinstalled Witcher 3 instead for yet another playthrough.

    Spent all day yesterday playing Beyond Two Souls. It's amazing. Not quite The Last Of Us, but genuinely awesome.

    Halo SPV3

    I intended to play a little bit of this after installing it at 8pm, iit's now 11:39, woopsy. The levels are about 50-75% longer than they were in the original Halo CE, most of the Covenant from Halo Reach are present (I have yet to meet any bugs), Pillar of Autumn has 4 Hunters in it, there is a suppressed sniper rifle.

    I've only beaten the first two level so far, it seems pretty awesome. Although there are some video and sound issues that are a pain in the bum, mostly around vehicles and occasionally tanky frame rates. But so far, awesome.

    Tony Hawk 1+2 Remake. Loving it so much still, just wish I could compete online with multi-million combos.
