Nephew asked me to play Minecraft with him. I was hesitant and worried as this popped up in my head...

GTA V all the way now.

Coincidentally one of my former classmates did a bank on Friday. She took $4K.

I downloaded thug pro, a comprehensive mod for Tony hawks underground 2 which adds a bunch of old levels, improves park/skater editor functions and restores online play. After getting my DS4 to work on my laptop, I haven't played anything else and have become a relapsed Tony hawk junkie. Very buggy but so fun.

So as expected, The Witcher 3 is ridiculously addictive and a ton of fun. It's quite different from Skyrim but very similar at the same time, the side quests seem more well-thought to me. Already spent something like 30-35 hours on it and there's still soooo much more to discover.

Evidently no thread was created for it this time around, but did anyone take advantage of the Steam summer sale (that's ending today I think)? I had gone on a rampage with the last one so I didn't get much this time, just CoD: AW, The Talos Principle, and Life Is Strange. I was close to getting RYSE but none of the PC reviews were exactly glowing for that one.

Otherwise, still currently playing pretty much exclusively The Witcher 3 right now, it even made me stop playing GTA V...Played about 110 hours already and there's apparently still much to do.
Also finished Ep 4 of Game Of Thrones, I don't really like the QTE but it's a great game other than that.

I got The Witcher 3, which is super addicting. I'm only level 9 and have just finished the Baron's quests. He hung himself. Now I'm probably going to do some side-quests. The game is beautiful and the story is engaging despite me not playing the first two games. My only complaint is that the Medium-Easy difficulty is too easy and Medium-Hard is too difficult. Don't see why there can't be just a regular medium difficulty.

I've also been playing a lot of Madden 15. Same problem. On Pro I blow everybody out, but on All-Pro I get super frustrated and Lynch fumbles it once or twice per game.

PS4 :/ I'm going with Medium-Easy though. Knowing myself, I'd probably shelve the game halfway through like I did with Bloodborne.

That sucks, already seen few mods for difficulty balance. Hell, it's easy to modify the files by yourself to your liking.

Pffft. Casul! I've actually been clearing chalice dungeons as of late, because I'm looking for a particular weapon - but I have to farm ritual materials for it, but the defiled chalice halves my HP whilst I'm inside - so it is very difficult.

Finished the main mode/challenge/career of Driveclub. Definitely grabbing the DLC season pass, but waiting to see if it gets discounted if they announce a season 2 pass.

Also 100%ed Peggle 2, again, this time on Xbone and with all the DLC. I 100%ed it on 360, offline, when I moved out here.

In the middle of a second playthrough in The Witcher 3, but I figured I should pace myself until the two huge DLCs are released for it at the end of the year and next year, so I just purchased Dying Light on sale on Steam right now.
Also just finished Ep. 5 of Game Of Thrones, and waiting for Ep. 4 of Life Is Strange this week.

It's gonna be a big fall for gaming, so I'm finishing up my leftovers. Just repeated as champs with the Seahawks with M15 and it's time to shelve that one for good (both years I won the SB and SBMVP was won by members of the opposing team's secondary... thanks Wilson). Now I have to finish The Witcher 3 (in the Isle of Mists), Infamous: Second Son and MGS Ground Zeroes.

After seeing the positive reviews and enjoying 15 a lot, I caved to the hype and bought Madden 16 today. Was kind of cool going to Gamestop and buying a game everybody else was getting. After the 20 minutes it took to set it up, I was able to play for about 4 hours. Impressions (all-pro, default sliders):

Pros:
- Graphics are yes.
- Pass rush is no longer OP
- Running the ball is a lot harder
- Penalties happen enough to remind you they exist, but not as often as in real life because that would suck
- Don't much care for the soundtrack, but it's much better than the generic menu music from last year
- Ratings matter - as Seattle, my starting defense was absolutely dominant, but my reserves gave up a lot of points and the O-Line got destroyed
- New catch functions add depth to passing game and make it possible to throw down the field, but aren't cheap

Cons:
- It's already frozen a couple times in the menus - hopefully that's patched
- CFM isn't really improved at all - redesigned menu but the new features add little
- Cam Newton is rated higher than Russell Wilson :(

After a dry spell after getting Battlefield Hardline, there's actually quite a few games coming up through the end of the year that I'm looking forward to playing: Fifa & Live 16, BattleField Hardline Robbery DLC (I never buy DLc, but this looks interesting), Yakuza 5 (finally after 3 years), Hitman (hopefully it's not a piece of shit like the last one), and next year Street Fighter V which the beta has been active for.

I'm still playing 2k11 regularly on PC, and occasionally PS3 (my console saves are my legitimate ones). I'm half interested in learning how to update cyber faces though.

Starhawk is one of the most underrated PS3 exclusives I've ever played, and it is still fun. I prefer co-op mode online, but there isn't much traffic anymore. Cooperative play online still attracts players, and I've mastered the game's hardest difficulty (mercenary). I played a while last night, and into this morning, and jumped 3 or 4 levels.

I even went back to dark souls 1 on PS3, and with a mule build I entered into some good ole pvp in the forest.

I need to finish The Witcher 3 and Infamous: Second Son. Soooo close yet I just don't have the motivation.

What I'm actually playing: Madden 16. I still like it - it's not perfect, nor is it that different from M15, but I'm obsessed with football right now so it was worth picking up. In my Franchise, I lost Russ to a torn labrum in the final game of the regular season, so I'm stuck with Tarvaris Jackson at QB and he sucks. After the bye week, I ran it on almost every play to beat the Lions 34-20 but now I got a rematch with the Packers. Gonna finish up the season tonight, since I'll be gone til next Sunday.

I also rented The Phantom Pain. I brushed up on my lore and beat Ground Zeroes to try and get excited for it. The opening sequence was pretty cool, but right now I'm a few missions in and kind of bored. It's like a big-budget, open-world Peace Walker. That's good for the longevity of the game, but unlike the linear titles, I don't get that sense of wanting to see what happens next. I respect the game, but am not captivated. It doesn't help that I suck at it, but since Big Boss is Wolverine, I can blow my cover and absorb 50 bullets without dying and settle for a 'B' grade on the mission.

Wasteland 2 has now got me occupied. I really like the turn based combat system, which is similar to the latest XCOM titles. I would have liked it more if there was a more "hardcore" difficulty that accounted for food n' stuff like that. Canteen water is somewhat immersing, but they could do better.

Got back into payday 2 after 2 years.The developers updated the hell out of the game in that time. It feels quite different from what I remember. Good game to play with friends.

I've heard of that game, but haven't played it. I've played a game called "Jagged Alliance: Back in Action," but it was a flop if you were to ask me. I just don't understand why they couldn't implement a good cover system (even obscure games like UFO:Aftermath had a cover system). Wasteland 2 actually has a decent one, although I believe more objects could be utilized.

The last official jagged alliance game was jagged alliance 2 in 1999 and they released the source code for the game so there are some crazy mods for it. You should check that one out. Exceptionally great voice acting and writing

Back in action was essentially a company's poor attempt at creating a newer, 3D version of jagged alliance 2

New Super Mario Bros U, in preparation for Super Mario Maker this week. Grabbed the Mario & Luigi disc off Amazon and well, probably least favorite 2D Mario. I remember liking the NSM on the DS and Wii, but this fell flat for me. Wall jumps and such never really played into the action and the racoon power up was meh compared to the propeller and large/small mushrooms. Bosses started getting interesting (finally) halfway through, but overall, eh.

Doubly so since the Luigi normally $40 DLC is just a remix of the existing levels with less time and Luigi jumpers/sliding.

Well, at least I'm prepared for all the SMM levels now.

....oh, and Rocket League, lots of Rocket League.

I played Super Mario 3D World on Wii U and it was actually pretty fun despite it not being 2D.

I'm having a hard time getting myself to play Rocket League once I finally beat the season mode. Might give it another go with a longer season eventually if i get bored

Online man, online.

I really enjoyed 3D World...not caring too much for the rainbow road world now, but the main game was pretty damn good IMO.

I only play rocket league online now and although it's fun, I feel like I need something to work towards, like getting promoted in fifa or something like that

After putting too many hours into the dreadful phone NFS, I was excited to rent the new one. My favorite games in the series were the first three black box ones (UG1, UG2, MW) and this looked like a return to that.

The driving is arcadey with some rubber banding and it doesn't take long to afford a car that smokes the competition (3 hours in I have a Nissan gtr). Always online is a drag and there is like no traffic on the road. Still, it's fun. I like the modding, the graphics are beautiful and it's pretty addictive. Probably not a purchase despite promises of free dlc but is the funnest racer I've played since forza horizon.
