I’ve watched my nephew play the Rachet and Clank games. But I have not gotten to play them.

I personally have not played the games, though I've heard that they are quite good.

I've been recently playing the remaster of Xenoblade Chronicles. Loved that game when I finally got a hold of it back around 2012 so it's nice to come back to it. Other then that I've just been playing more Celeste haha

Finally getting around to playing Final Fantasy 7 Remake and loving it for the most part.

That's off the back of finishing Resident Evil 3 (also remake). Really need to finish Luigi's Mansion 3 and Astral Chain on the Switch as well. So many great games to choose from. Spoilt for choice!  :chompysmile

I finished LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 a few days ago. The fact that it has taken me nearly three months to finish this game proves that it really was such a huge and time-consuming game to complete. In fact, at over 100 gameplay hours according to my Steam account, this has by far been longest it has ever taken me to complete any Lego game (beating the previous records from Lego Star Wars Complete Saga and Lego City Undercover). This game is so massive because it has 20 story levels (as opposed to 15 in many previous Lego games), along with 10 bonus levels, and 6 DLC levels as well. On top of all of that, the hub world is huge, not only in area but also in terms of all the various tasks and quests there are to complete. There are also various "challenges" that involve doing a similar task in multiple places all over the hub area, which can sometimes be a little difficult to keep track of. (In fact, if not to the fact that I had used a guide to help me figure out where to find and complete every task for game completion, I could've easily spent one or two dozen more hours on this game.) And finally, some completed quests can also be repeated a few more times for a stud bonus, providing even more things to do, despite not really contributing to game completion. With all of that aside, I definitely liked the story presented in this game, where various locations throughout the Marvel multiverse are brought together into a single realm called "Chronopolis" ruled by Kang the Conqueror, and the objective for the heroes is to defeat him so they can return all the various places back to where they belong. I absolutely loved playing this game, and if not for some certain collectible items proving to be particularly frustrating to obtain, I would easily rank this among my favorites of all Lego games.

Next on my list of Lego games to play; LEGO The Incredibles

This game is based on both of the Incredibles movies (though I've yet to see the second one), and from what I've previously seen, this one should go by a bit more quickly than the one I just finished. I used to love watching Pixar movies, and the first Incredibles movie was definitely one of them, so I have a feeling I could like this game as well. (Note to self; find an opportunity to watch Incredibles 2 sometime soon.)

I finished LEGO The Incredibles a few days ago. I'm glad I was able to have an opportunity to finally watch that second movie, because it turns out the story content in this game takes some interesting creative liberties, especially for the sake of always providing at least two playable characters everywhere (as all Lego games must always do so). I definitely liked the new feature of group builds, where you must collect a certain number of special bricks before you can begin, and then have all of your active characters participate together to rapidly complete the build. And I especially loved how some of these special builds in the hub area also came with the bonus of unlocking certain characters from all of the other Pixar movies. I also liked the "crime wave" feature where each district on the map turns into a sort of mini level where you have to complete tasks to defeat the villains. And best of all, at just over 30 hours of total gameplay time, this is among the quickest of all Lego games to complete. Overall, I really loved this game, and would definitely enjoy an opportunity to play it again sometime.

Next on my list of Lego games to play; LEGO DC Super Villains

This is the fourth Lego game in the DC franchise (and the first without having Batman in the title), so this will likely feature many of the same familiar characters within a different story setting. From what I do know of this game so far, one of the key features is that literally the very first thing you're required to do is crate a custom character (something that in previous games was either totally optional or was needed to complete certain quests that required certain specific parts included on the character). I've already got some ideas in mind, but I'll have to wait to see what option I'll truly have available.

Currently playing 7 dayd to die with a few buds of mine. Outside of that I'm currently on another playthrough in Dark Souls (Remastered), and also playing some Sacred occassionally. I'm awaiting with excitement the september 18th Path of Exile expansion, which I'm planning to play thoroughly.

It's been a while but diving into (pun intended) Subnautica. I know a few people on the forum have given this a try but testing out the PS4 version and enjoying it so far.

Can check out my exploits on my Twitch channel if anyone is interested  :ChomperPOG

Right, I still need to watch your Reaper Leviathan encounter  :rhett_brag

I haven't been playing much since I've started school, but I did manage to finish a playthough of the Blue Lions route in Fire Emblem: Three Houses on Maddening Mode as well as Doom Eternal on Nightmare. Hopefully that will keep me sated while I focus on homework more now.

I finished LEGO DC Super-Villains a few days ago. In a lot of this ways, this game was actually quite similar to Marvel Super Heroes 2. While they both had 20 story levels and 6 DLC levels, this game lacked any bonus levels (which is good for those who would rather spend less time on any game). For the hub exploration, both games also have various quests and challenges to complete across different regions, but this game not only has a slightly smaller map that's more manageable, but also the challenges are labeled as checklists with hints for each item, making it way easier to keep track of your progress. The story content was interesting, especially with how you immediately start off by creating your own custom character (I named mine "Doctor Blast") who actually appears in the cutscenes interacting with all the other characters, albeit incapable of actually speaking (which I suppose makes sense, given the immense number of options that the character could be). Not to mention, your character also has the ability to gain new super powers (some of which you can customize how they appear when used) as you progress through the story, so that really makes the interactive aspect of this game very interesting. As for the achievements, I was rather annoyed that all of the ones for the DLC content were "hidden", meaning that I had to do some searching on the internet just to find out what the requirements were, and while some others were a little tricky, I once again managed to unlock all of them. Ultimately, much like with Marvel Super Heroes 2, despite some collectibles being particularly frustrating to obtain, I would rank this among my favorite Lego games, especially since I got it done in a more reasonable amount of time (75 hours total, as opposed to over 100 hours with Marvel Super Heroes 2).

Next on my list of Lego games to play; The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame

This is officially the last game left on my list of Lego games I have yet to play, and I'm glad that I'll get to finish this off with a game based on my favorite movie franchise. It's actually quite fitting, considering the very first Lego game I had played on my list was the first Lego Movie video game, and I'll be ending this three-year gaming marathon with the game based on the second Lego Movie. I've certainly looked forward to playing it ever since I first saw the movie, and I can't wait to finally try it out.

Grand to see a fellow player of the "Ori" series. I too have been playing Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Haven't gotten too far but liking the changes to the original game as well as the beautiful aesthetic, music and art style.

As well as that, I'm also playing Hades which is a fantastic roguelite from SuperGiant games (makers of Bastion and Transistor). The playing loop is great, combat is slick and fast-paced (not quite Bayonetta or Devil May Cry quick but still got to retain your focus), the player-boss encounters change up so just when you get familiar with tackling one boss, a new variant comes into play that forces you to change up your battle strategy. Zagreus is a brilliant protagonist, as bold and brash as he is charming as are the supporting cast. Even the snide and damning remarks from the titular Hades himself (he's your dad just for context). A worthwhile look for anyone interested.

As well as (as well as) that, I also fell into the nostalgia trap of getting the Super Mario 3D All Stars collection. Yeah, I know it was a baited pitfall playing on the nostalgic grip of old gamers dangling the treat in front of us whilst calling "C'mon puppy! Jump! Who's a good boy!" but hey, I remembered it fondly back then and playing them now, with a few visual and gameplay tweaks, makes me smile  :ChomperPOG Mostly...
