    i can't get with them at all - can't get on with all those Nintendo platform games like Paper Mario - they just look too shoddy and old-fashioned to me - i've been spoilt by photorealistic cgi

    Ugh, no. Aesthetically unappealing. As I said, I like photorealistic stuff.

    80 year old graphics!

    I’m really honestly miffed that it’s not going to be on the Switch (apparently) or on Macs.

    Would have been good on the switch. I like the look of it but something is making me not buy it. Not sure what.

    I have just started on MGS5. However, i have just finished Just Cause 3, and Far Cry 4. They are the flipping same, with slight differences. Its getting to be a problem.

    The new wolfenstein , was playing new assassins creed but got bored so traded it in for wolf.

    DLC for horizon zero dawn, ' the frozen wilds ' just more of the same which isnt bad at all, although being level 50 does seem to make the game much easier

    far cry 5 looks great though, i do agree with you 3 was amazing , played through it a few times, 4 was just too similar and never picked it up after completing it.

    can't wait for FC5 - you get to fight racists and religious bigots, which makes a change from killing poor people in the developing world

    Trying out Mordor: Shadow of War.

    More of the same, but much like the Batman series this isn't the worst thing in the world. It could stand to all be a bit tighter, but still good fun to be had running about and murdering orcs. They seem to have improved their uncanny resurrection powers from the last one though. I keep chopping dudes in half, and they keep coming back for more. The starting point of the story is a bit ludicrous (oh yeah, let me voluntarily give you this Ring of Power to let a mostly-dead shadow of a wraith free), but it goes well from there.

    Wolfie was good, but it lacked something from the previous one. Can't put my finger on what it is, though. Probably the "Ho-hum, I've already murdered all these things before"-ness of it. Venus nowhere near as fun/silly as the Moon.

    I agree with you about Wolfenstein not being as good as the previous one. Did you play the in-game version of Wolfstone?

    Just the first level. Seems fairly faithful, not including the bitmaps. Since I've played it before a dozen times, I left it.

    Some pals of mine who are heavily into gaming are constantly complaining about loot crates - devs making you grind the shit out of it to get the next level or upgrade, unless you buy the expensive loot crate and get it instantly. The new N4S supposed to be a bad culprit.

    Pay money to play less of the game?

    I've heard the new N4S is particularly in thrall to the Dark Lord in that way, but that's more because it's a crap game. Most of them can be ignored entirely (Mordor's like that).

    It's hardly a spoiler that a place exists as a level in the game. Never mind that pretty much every single review mentions it.

    There are some highlights there, but it's not the interesting gameplay mechanic they introduce unfortunately.

    It's ok I'm not that precious although I haven't seen it in any reviews I've read

    Bought Darkest Dungeons + DLC from Steam today.

    Greatly enjoyed it on iOS. Tbh, I suspect it was a bit daft re-buying it for steam but, ay... £17 to support a decent dev feels ok. (Does it? I'm skint. Perhaps this wasn't sensible. Will I ever play it on my lappy? Hmm, probably not. Yeah. Maybe not a sensible decision. But still.)

    I'm sure there are plenty of games to choose from which don't involve shooting things and taking over bases. I've just started MGS5 (coz I got it free with ps+). It's good fun so far.

    Which means you'll be shooting things and taking over bases re msg5 :)

    Well, yeah, but I find the games sufficiently different and all probably more fun than Farming Simulator.

    Finished Wolfenstein 2. It was OK.

    I've just started Prey. Not what I'd expected having read nearly nothing about it, which for some reason was a fairly dumb shooter. It's not and it's much more enjoyable for it.

    I enjoyed Prey more than Wolfie. But the difficulty curve is really messed up, and it's definitely one of those games where you can't just grab whatever skills seem like a lark at the time and expect to survive. Anything that ups your damage output is crucial. Though I admit that I consider it more "fun" to be creeping along in the darkness more because I'm scared to die than because it's easier to kill everything that way.

    Also, the Dishonored/Prey engine isn't nearly as efficient as the idTech one in Wolfie. Can't just crank the settings up to max and let it fly. :)

    I've just figured out how to get WinVICE to load disk image files, so I'm just about to jump into playing the Commodore 64 version of Turrican.

    OK, so I managed to get Turrican 2 running, but the keyboard doesn't seem to be working? Fuck. Trying Commando instead, it's only one image.

    No, my joystick settings don't seem to be working.

    I find it best to treat this sort of thing as kind of like an annoying prelude of the game itself. It makes me appreciate how easy it is these days, relatively speaking.

    The Sims 4 brought out its Cats & Dogs expansion and I'm a bit fucking obsessed.

    Look at this little shitbird.

    Right, so after an inquiry on an emulation forum, it turns out that I was using the wrong joystick in the emulator - I should have been using Joystick #2, not Joystick #1. Hooray for intuitive design! :facepalm:
