The Talos Principle is a nice game indeed. I also liked the ending.

I was late to pick up a 3DS, finally, and playing some games like the Link to the Past remake.
Its a sequel actually. I quite liked it, but wasnt too sold on the "buying items" system (Id rather find them). Other then that it had a lot of nice ideas.

What is MBN playing these days?
I just got the DLC of the (excellent) Invisible Inc, so I'll be playing that next.
Previously I was playing Eterian Mystery Dungeon and KYN.

However, the second Xenoblade X comes out, thats it for other games for awhile

I'm pretty much happy with any game that gives me a massive interesting landscape to explore I think.

What "also liked", I just said I didn't like it

What I liked a lot about the game is the duality it maintains, not giving an answer vis-à-vis the existence of a God, much like it works in the real world. But whatever ending you get, you get a clear answer. I don't think there was need for that (note : I didn't get the secret ending, haven't found all the stars yet).

Recently/currently/soonly:
Life is Strange, Broken Age, Dreamful Chapters, Dream, Armikrog, Q.U.B.E.

Also GTA5 is a nice toy (not considering it a game). Very nice way to release your inner sadist. And I must try Fallout 4 asap.

I'm currently playing mostly Tales of Zestiria (omfg so good) and also Terraria/PangYa every now and then. I have also just finished the last chapter of Life is Strange, and omg, what an awesome game. I had low hopes for it when I was suggested to play it by someone in here but, wow, I don't regret any second from playing it.

Xenoblade X - OMG I love this. Its insane O_o. I'm not getting much done in the game - I just love running about looking at the creatures.
The art design is just beautiful.
Anyone with a WiiU has to get this game.

Along the same lines my WiiU is;
TwDarkflame (if you use a different name, tell me your from MBN so I know to confirm you - sometimes I get friend requests on various networks and I have no clue if I know people or not)

Also, did I mention I love Xenoblade. Xenoblade. Xenoblade. Xenoblade!

The portable Xenoblade being only new3DS compatible is such a sad fact

Though is it worth getting the Wii U for?

Will probably play the 3DS version sometime soon (the Wii version is at 120€ )

Well, thats debatable.
I got a WiiU for it - but I knew I would enjoy because I played the last game. I also had a few WiiU games ön a list to "get at some point". So it was sort of a safe choice for me.
Still a lot of money, but I knew I was getting 200+ hours of entertainment from it at least.

Mario 3D World for sure. Love my platformers.
Splatoon as well I think I'll get - I have a few friends that have it and want my to join for the multiplayer.
Pikmin 3 possibly.

Oh, and Yooka-Laylee (which I think is still a year away)

Theres a few others like MarioMaker I vaguely want, but dont want to pay full price for.
--
Also a big question mark for me over that Lego Dimensions game. For some weird reason theres no PC version so I might get a WiiU one
Still expensive though. Probably paying for all the voiceactors but still, not too keen on plastic-model-buying based games, even if the models in question are proper lego :P

I was thinking about buying WiiU just for this game and the new Legend of Zelda, both of them look so freaking cool

Yes, cant wait for Zelda either.

Still really enjoying Xenoblade - some nice crazy sci-fi twists now I am a few chapters in. I also love just running about seeing who I can help in town.

The only criticism I have is the music; No separate volume control for the music/sfx!
Seems a big oversight to me, as sometimes its a little hard to hear what people are saying. (Cutscenes have subtitles, not not random in-fight speech).

Weird not to have the option either, as theres loads of options for everything else.

Anyway, if anyone else gets the game, feel free to add me. Even though its mostly a single player game, theres a surprising amount of co-op multiplayer features.

Realy? That's something I didn't expect, specially from an AAA title... such a common feature on every game nowadays was just forgotten like that?

Still, doesn't look like a big deal... My friend just told me he is going to buy a WiiU in a few weeks and he is going to lend me his videogame as soon as he finished Xenoblade, so I have my taste of the game as well

Yeah its weird as hell by its absence. Kinda hoping they patch it in.
Not really spoiling my game though.

You can expect it in about 6 months then :P

Steamworld Heist
Released on 3DS some months ago, completely different from the previous game, Steamworld Dig.
Steamworld Heist is a... 2 dimensional turn-based shooter...
So yeah, that game studio (Image and Form) so far made two original games, both quite unique, both in gameplay and atmosphere.
I definetely recommend this for any- and everyone.


P.S. : Yes, making your shot bounce five times across the room before hitting your target is as fun as it sounds

Really interesting game;
http://www.achrongame.com/site/index.php

A few years old now, somehow I missed it.

Basically its a RTS with full time travel abilities. I havnt got my head around it yet.
You can change the past at any time and your enemy can do the same.
Really weird stuff. Your constantly fighting in multiple time frames....but its not a trick or multiple maps, you really are changing the past of your units, which in turn effects the future.

Seems to use "back to the future" style time travel rules, where changes take awhile to propagate to the present (and thus giving you time to counter them).
