It turns out that I ended up playing Fallout 4 again, I never did finish the DLC so I decided to jump back in.

I have to say I am mightily enjoying running around Nuka World trying to kill a crazy mutant.

There’s some more armour to get if I can just find more pesky Star Controllers. It’s a pain to get so I am hoping it is higher specced than what I currently have. That should help with Far Harbour when I get around to playing it.

One thing that annoys me though is that I am the overlord of the whole place yet no-one bows down to me.

I think I might have to show them all the wrong end of a garbage cannon later 🙂

I think Witcher 3 is boring

I am late to the party when playing the Witcher 3 but I had been dying to play it. Almost every review I have read says it is amazing.

Well it isn’t, it’s boring. I thought it was great for the first area, and most of the second but then things go down hill. The story becomes a long winding mush fest of mushy nonsense and the game itself degrades to throwing the same enemies at you in similar situations (rescue a town, kill a beast rinse repeat).

B.O.R.I.N.G

The question is, what to play next. I’ve got less than a month before Destiny 2 comes out and I really want to play that, so it needs to be something I can play in a month.

I never did finish Salt and Sanctuary, Transistor looks pretty awesome and I never did finish Never Alone. Choices Choices. I really fancy another RPG I think. A top down one.

Maybe I’ll go through Diablo 3 again 🙂

Daytona! Let’s Go Away!

Just doing some internet surfing and found this bad-boy. One of my favourite arcade game tunes.

Had to share it with you all, Enjoy!

Xbox One X or Switch?

I have to buy one of them but I don’t know which!

The XboneX is going to be a monster of a machine, equivalent to a PC with a GTX 1070 in it. Not only will that mean great XBoneX games it will mean that PC games get a boost as well, just like happened with PS4 and XBone, and that is a great thing, so it’s worth supporting.

The trouble is I already have a powerful PC, and practically all the decent games come out on it anyway, so the XboneX might just be replicating what I already have.

Then there’s the Switch. It’s Nintendo and they make the best games, unfortunately though the catalogue is a bit sma… What the hell am I on about? Of course I’m getting a Switch, I’m a Nintendo Fanboy!

That new Atari looks lovely though, I will probably have to get one of them as well! I remember the Atari 2600 and the hours upon hours of time wasted on it (Space Invaders anyone?), hopefully this one will be just as good.

I played The Witcher 2 and was not that impressed, well that’s not true because I loved the story – it was the game itself that miffed me off. I got stuck at some boss or other and could not get away from it unless I reverted to a game save and I hate doing that. It feels like I am having to compensate for bad game design.

I was a bit hesitant at buying The Witcher 3 but eventually the continual good reports, and a hefty discount on Steam, convinced me to dive in.

I’m not going to write a review because there are plenty of them online. If you like single player RPGs with a good story and plenty to do then this is for you. Make sure you have plenty of time though!

3DS’s Swan Song

I’ve just been lucky enough to be able to go to Florida and so needed a decent mobile game to pass the time on the plane during the trip.

It came down to a choice between Monster Hunter X, Zelda – A Link Between Worlds and Lego City Undercover. I quickly removed Lego from the list because it’s available for Nintendo Switch, which I intend on buying in the near future.

In the end I plumped for Zelda. It is a great game by any measure, I haven’t finished it yet but so far it’s completely engaging. The 3D effect is the best I have seen on the system and Nintendo have learned from previous games – providing some decent tools to make it easier to remember what you are doing,  for instance you can place multiple pins on the map to remind you where to go.

Unfortunately, unless I buy Monster Hunter (which, let’s face it, is likely to be out on Switch before I get chance to buy it) this is the last game I will play on 3DS. It makes me sad but onward and upward!

Nintendo continue to make the best games on any console, I’m hoping the Switch can keep up the trend.

A year off

Has it really been a year since I last wrote about my gaming exploits? Time doesn’t half fly!

The truth of it is that I have been more concerned with Matched Betting and Betfair Trading than true gaming. I do consider them to be my new “rpg” though, lots of stats and flashing numbers.

I have spent a reasonable amount of time improving my arcade cabinet after buying a New Net City. You can see what I got up to on my youtube channel.

I did have a bit of an epiphany as well.

The thing is, I am an older brother and that makes me inherently a) correct – always, b) in charge – always and c) correct – always.

So when I played GTA Vice City and thought it was a bit pants, then obviously I was right, and obviously that applied to every other GTA even though I hadn’t actually played them.

My daughter asked me if she could play GTAV so I thought I’d check it out, I happened to have a PS3 version which I got in a game bundle with said machine. (She has the PS4 version because she stole my PS4 off me.)

It is truly awesome. There, I admitted I was wrong. The city is incredible, certainly the best environment I have seen in a game, except, maybe, for Xenoblade X. The amount of detail and sheer scale of it is astonishing and, unlike say, The Division, it doesn’t get boring or seem to repeat itself too much.

Before GTAV I completed Red Dead Redemption. I never did get to grips with it, I found it boring, repetitive and the ending just stupid. Other people love it but it just didn’t click with me. I got sick of seeing brown, that’s for sure. Sticking in a Nintendo game in-between Red Dead stints and seeing some colour was a breath of fresh air.

Anyway, just thought I’d check in. I’m currently putting a bit of time into the Witcher 3 at the same time as GTA 5. I’m still at the beginning but I’ll report back.

Avaguddun!
