Best decision you've made all year ;)

That's the point.

And if you want to continue the trend, get Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeeze. And I don't even think I have to mention Smash Bros. and MarioKart 8.

SEGA All-Stars Racing Transformed and a downloadable title called Runbow are also great party games. (Transformed is multiplatform, but the Wii U version is best because it has extra game modes.)

I certainly intend to get Smash Bros and Mario Kart, but I've gotta wait a bit on pretty much any other games at this point. :|

Picked up a few games in the recent sales on PSN.

Infamous Second Son & First Light

I'm actually playing the First Light standalone DLC first as it's a prequel and people said it's ending had more impact being played before the main game. I like it, but the open-world setting seems pretty dated for this generation of consoles and the gameplay is a bit repetitive.

Beach Buggy Racing

lol. Poor man's kart racer. I admit the one thing I'm missing from not owning any Nintendo consoles at the moment is some Mario Kart as my son would love it. Picked this up for $3 and it has some decent split-screen multiplayer and loads of tracks but it's missing anything special.

Retro City Rampage

I buy all my games with prepaid cards because I'm in China and have been sick of having $2.62 change stuck on my account for ages because everything is pretty much x.99 in multiples of 5 apart from one other thing I bought once. This was $2.50 so I burned through my final couple of dollars. It's good fun but I think 16-bit might have been better. It's a bit too retro for me.

Terraria PS4 Edition

$5. Fucking amazing value. I still absolutely love this game and can now do split-screen with my son. I barely ever play PC games but I spent hundreds of hours on the Steam version.

What I'm really really waiting for though is The Witness on Tuesday. Portal, Antichamber, QUBE and Talos Principle have taught me that I fucking love first-person puzzlers and Johnathan Blow's offering looks amazing...really can't wait.

So not a game purchase exactly, but I picked up an Nvidia Shield TV, which is a fairly powerful Android TV box. I mainly got it to stick Kodi on and play my movie and TV downloads but it's also a pretty amazing emulation box too. So far it's played everything up to N64 flawlessly, with a lot of Dreamcast/Gamecube running really well too- I actually played the Wii VC version of Mario 64 on Dolphin with Stereoscopic 3D enabled, kind of mind blowing... Plus the included control pad is surprisingly not shit and has some nice features like build in headphone port and the ability to turn the console on from the control pad.
Thumbs up if anyone is looking for something similar.

Interesting. Our TV is an Android TV device itself (a Sony XBR 850c), but Sony hasn't been particularly forthcoming about the specs. I have to imagine Dolphin being pretty taxing, though.

To add to the confusion, Sony lists the TV as having an "X1 processor," but that's a reference to their proprietary 4k upscaling system, not the Tegra chip.

I've barely played any games over the past few months but picked up Firewatch and finished it and then finally did a playthrough of Life is Strange.

EMOTIONS. Both are incredible.

I loved Life is Strange. It was a bit ropey in some areas but overall it was a story-driven game done right. One of only a handful of games that I missed playing when I'd finished.

Yeah, it started a little slow for me, but when the story really kicks in... wow. The barn section onwards was some of the most gripping gaming I've ever played and I love that the game assumes you're intelligent- nothing felt dumbed down to me.
It's games like this that make me genuinely think the industry is in the best state it's ever been.

Finally got around to picking up FAST Racing Neo, nice game,well excecuted.

Kind of sad though when an indie game looks a million times better than 99.9% of AAA third party titles on the system but there you go...

Just finished Broken Sword V (pretty good) and picked up The Talos Principle. I'm on a puzzle/point and click/walking sim thing at the moment. Think I'm all shooty-shootied out.

Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel

This game has recently got a lot of traction on another forum I visit. Supposedly it's an absolutely fantastic hidden-gem turn-based JRPG with a great story and similar mechanics to Persona. Ended up dusting off my PS3 and picking it up and it's great. The first JRPG I've been able to get into for years. It's really anime but well-written and localized without any of the typical cheesy dialog.

I just hope I've got the time to complete it as it's a solid 50+ hour game apparently, and it ends on a cliffhanger with the sequel out in the Autumn.

Assassin's Creed Rogue

Saw it cheapo in the Ass Creed sale. It's the only proper AC game I've never played so thought I may as well pick it up.

Just preordered the Day of the Tentacle Remaster. I loved the original loads as a kid, possibly because it was one of the few games my terrible computer could play well. There's a directors commentary and some concept art to look through, so there's at least some new stuff too. Be interesting to see if it holds up.
