Went to Target tonight to pick up a few things, and on a whim decided to check the electronics department. They had one lonely little Switch left in stock. I felt bad for it, so I made sure to give it a good home.


I'm assuming you picked up Zelda as well? If so, feel free to post your thoughts here and/or the Zelda thread!

I've seen great reviews for Sonic Mania thus far, so I'm heavily tempted to give it a download on the Switch once I finish the current crop of games I'm playing through. Glad to see Sonic is back with a legit great game.

PS4:
The Shovel Knight expansion campaigns
Infamous: Second Son
Bloodbourne
Tomb Raider
Rez Infinite
Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor
Never Alone
Just Cause 3*
Assasins Creed Freedom Cry*
Life is Strange*
Killing Floor 2*

*PS Plus games

PS3:
Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions
Bioshock Infinite
Bioshock
Red Dead Redemption
Ninja Gaiden Sigma
Max Payne 3
Bayonetta
Okami HD
Shadow of the Colossus (I got half way through and got stuck not being able to find a boss, I'll have to start over at this point)
Mega Man 9 (I've beaten two bosses so far. This game is a BITCH and I had to put it down)
Mega Man 10


Wii:
Super Paper Mario (I recently finished World 2 and put it down to play Shovel Knight, Walking Dead New Frontier, and Rocket League)
MadWorld


Holy shit, that's a crazy backlog of games! I've only played a small handful of the ones you've listed, but the original BioShock is pretty amazing, Ninja Gaiden Sigma is a kickass time (though can be quite difficult...I'm still kind of amazed that I was able to beat it on the normal difficulty setting, which isn't even the hardest setting in the game if I recall correctly), and MadWorld was super underrated on the Wii.

Back on topic: after playing through the original Metroid recently, I started a game in Super Metroid for the first time in years. Still an absolutely fantastic game, though it can be easy to get stuck in parts (even with the blessing of having an in-game map, which the original game didn't have).

They were sold out of Zelda when I got the system, but I got it yesterday. Barely started it late last night, so i haven't even really had a chance to do much of note, yet.

Thai, if you've still got an itch for an episodic game after you finish up Walking Dead, go for Life Is Strange. Awesome, awesome game. And don't let the emo-girly feel in the beginning turn you off, either. It was a legit GOTY candidate for me back when it came out.

Well, at least episodes 1-4. Then it took a total fucking nosedive in episode 5. But still, it's worth playing.





Is everyone mad here?
Of course they are, and you are too... otherwise, you wouldn't have come here.

Just finished RYSE: Son of Rome- I can't remember if I grabbed it as a dirt cheap download, or one of those free games with gold thing that Xbox does, but I rather enjoyed it... The game is absolutely gorgeous, and definitely scratches the need to inflict video game violence on others itch. I dug the story and the various levels, but the hack and slash does get a bit... I don't want to say boring because it's not that long of a game, and they do throw in some range combat and boss fights, but I'd be hesitant to play it again because it's not going to offer you anything new.

Still; a fun diversion and I dug it.

I've got both Witcher III and Wolfenstein new order queued up and am eager to play both, but I'm thinking New Order will be a bit shorter and more "fun" so I might tackle that one first.

Salmon, my highest recommendation would be Bayonetta. That game is fan-fuckin-tastic.

Also, Goon, and Punker, add me on Switch: SW-6360-3815-1714

Ok, friend request sent. Hopefully I did that right.

Aside from Zelda, I'm in the middle of Watch Dogs 2. It's not bad, but so far I dig the first one more. Maybe the further I get into it, it'll become better.

I haven't played most of those games, Sal, but if I got to go back and play any of those for the first time it would probably be Boshock. Red Dead Redemption and Tomb Raider are also really, really fun.

I'm waaaay behind on games. Playing through Assassins Creed Black Flag (I'm probably half way through and it's starting to bore me.....that's why I never played hardly any of the first three of the series that I own but this one has pirate ships and interesting history {for me}). Also finally bought the Star Wars Battlefront game and play with a buddy some nights. It's fun and I'll probably grab the new one when it's released.

I download the free PS4 Network games every month and never play them. Guess I should play Until Dawn (my SW:B buddy enjoyed it) and Life is Strange. Is that the one where you start off in an empty town and it's black & white (I think?)? Couldn't figure out what to do but I was hammered and voice chatting with some buddies so I probably didn't give it the right amount of attention.

I'm playing a heck of a game at the moment called Slime-San

It's a VEERRRRY indie game inspired by Super Meat Boy, but it's got a lot of great content and does a lot of interesting things that Meat Boy doesn't. Unfortunately, being an indie game of it's budget comes some hassles, such as slowdown in big, big levels (Have only come across HORRENDOUS slowdown once, to be fair, and that was late in the 4th world).

It doesn't have the polish of other indie games such as SMB, Outland, or Joe Danger, but it's incredibly charming, weird, and has great controls. Music is quite good, too!

I recommend it.
