What are you playing at the moment?

Post by Pr4wn on Wed 29 Mar 2017, 6:13 pm

Nice new thread to start!

I'm on Mass Effect Andromeda for the time being. Think the negative press is way overblown, I'm really enjoying it so far.

Not really ever tried the Mass Effect series and have the original trilogy free with EA Access so should really go through them.
Still on Overwatch here, level 209 atm and maining between D.Va and Symmetra currently.

But you're on XB1, right?

You really should try Mass Effect. I loved all of the original trilogy.

I'm slogging through Arkham City again, I loved Arkham Knight and the new one, whatever it's called but seem to find City a ballache (I hate the bits with Catwoman) although I had to laugh at the game ending after a couple of bad choices.

I'm also to my absolute shame, engrossed with Clicker Hero's on Steam, why? I have no idea it's a stupid concept and a stupid game but i gotta keep clicking them baddies

Arkham City was by far the worst in the Arkham series, imho.

There's not a single Switch available here in Toronto, all sold out. So Zelda will have to wait, sadly.

I'm on Andromeda at the minute and I can't understand the negativity.

Sure there are a few glitches, some of which can be quite amusing or frustrating in equal measure, but hells teeth, what do people want? I'm thinking the sort of gameplay some are calling for will be waaayy beyond the average 3 year old PC that most people have got.

And I'll admit it's taking a while to find out all of the stuff behind the scenes like research and How-To-Buy-Bad-Ass Assault Rifles etc. but it's still a good game - and with future patches and DLC can only get better.

I find it really stops and starts Pr4wn, I actually nearly turned it off last night thinking i'd finished it (couldn't find anything else to do) ran about the city for 15 mins and then it flashed up saying i had to go and pick up the cure. Stoopid thing. (I really really hate the catwoman parts as well)

Agreed, Derby. I also found that I got lost around the city way too often, not knowing where to go next for a quest etc.

Anyone else find that line really sad, a game shouldn't have to get patched and have more content to be a good game, sad times

Agreed. I'm sick of games being released when they're clearly not finished yet.

Also, EA's habit of milking their customers with DLC does my head in.

Just finished this today. The most enjoyable 4 weeks of gaming I've ever had. 11/10.

It even justifies the 400 quid outlay on the Switch Laugh

It appears I have finished Arham City (just not all the riddles) but I've spent 2 days running around trying to activate the main missions again after the last Catwoman level against two--face. Dunno but this just seemed meh and didn't feel like an end at all.

Arkham Origins now, lets hope that's better

I've not long finished Horizon which I really enjoyed

Bought the Uncharted collection and started the first one but I'm really not enjoying it. All seems a bit average. Also picked up day of the tentacle on PS store for like 3 quid which is a bargain for a bit of nostalgia

DOTT is brilliant, Sam N Max is the bees knees though :-). I started with Uncharted 3 which got me right into it, i read up on 1 and 2 and there were a lot of meh reviews so i haven't bothered (yet)

Uncharted 4 was great fun, if a little linear.

DOTT is a total classic. Love point-and-click games like that and Broken Sword.

Thought Mass Effect Andromeda was excellent but probably with the caveat I played after they patched a lot out I guess. Built to stand alone to the original trilogy so nobody needs to chug through those (though 2 and 3 are also excellent and free with EA Access if you haven't played them).

Despite the awful reviews and general backlash I bought Kick Off Revival yesterday and wow...

How in this day and age they've managed to completely butcher one of the best football games ever made is beyond me. It's that bad you just HAVE to play it!!

Might dig out the Witcher3 since I never really got started with it first time round. Worth putting time into?

Loved the story and exploration of Waitcher 3 but I couldn't get on with the combat. Found it clunky.

I'm a big fan of most Bioware games, so would assume the story elements would appeal. Think I bought it around the time Legion came out so never got round to it.

Aliens Vs Predator (FPS) on PS3. It's pretty good to be fair and a lot similar (in style) to Star Wars rebel commander (or whatever it's called) Short levels but quite difficult. Also has scared the crap out of me in places (not as bad as Alien Isolation though)
