I'm really enjoying ReCore too. Platforming is great, especially compared to what we usually get nowadays and combat isn't the best, but it's different enough that I'm having fun. Robot companions are charming as hell too. My only real issue is the load times, which are the worst any game has had since the PSP was new. They're so bad I'm forcing myself to get better as quick as possible because I don't want to die and sit through them.

I am also playing ReCore. I started it this morning and I'm having a great time with it. I appreciate games like this that just get you going right away. Platforming and combat feels good. Haven't gotten into the upgrade systems too much but I only played it for two hours or so. All of the reviews I read for this game were really negative because of glitches and bad load times, but I haven't encountered anything crazy yet. The load times are long, but that's what cell phones are for! I'm playing on Xbox One and I heard there were bad framerates and textures compared to the PC version. To be honest, I haven't really noticed anything and unless it causes the gameplay to slow up, it won't really bother me.

Based on your guys' praise alone I'll probably give it a shot when it drops a bit more in price.

Beat Ace Attorney 6 today. Game surprised me, went into a good chunk of the cases thinking I'd know exactly how they'd turn out or feeling than they were copying too much from past games' plots, only for them to subvert those expectations or do something new with what they took from past games. Wouldn't recommend it if you haven't played past games though, game is huge on continuity and keeping up with all the different mechanics gets confusing if you didn't play the game they were introduced in. Still, probably my second favorite AA game after Trials and Tribulations.

Gonna put my focus back in ReCore which went a bit on the backburner when AA6 hit its final case. Those games always get really, really good during the last case.

I've become less into ReCore as I've played more of it. The issues and problems have started to mount the more I played. Where as before I couldn't wait to play more, now I just play some here and there. I do really appreciate the platforming when some of the other wonky things in the game aren't working against it (like when they spawn you back into instant death situations). I mean the amount of new IPs with great 3D platforming in say the last ten years is pretty low, so from that perspective its really cool.

From what I heard, there's a patch coming in soon that will fix the load times so I'm just waiting for that to jump back in.

I got that game Song of the Deep. Only played maybe half an hour tonight. Pretty much what I expected so far.

Uncharted 4 has a new mode which is okay. I only tried it a couple times and haven't really found my footing. They brought the Village map back too which is great. Wider now and with added rope swings. I've only gotten to play it once though.

Started a new game in Bloodborne since October is soon, I love Halloween related stuff, and my PS4 started having a decent internet connection after the update. Forgot how great this game is.

I have been playing Forza Horizon 3 the past couple of days. It looks gorgeous on Xbox One. Its locked at 30, but it never skips a beat. One of the best looking games I've seen. I enjoyed Forza Horizon 2 but I dind't feel like there was much variety in the open world. This isn't the case in FH3. You go from an urban area to a rainforest to a desert to farmland to a beach. The game has the structure of Burnout Paradise, but it also reminds me of Motorstorm Pacific Rift for its location... which are my two favorite racing games from last gen. There is also a TON of content in that game. I've logged 10 hours so far and I'm only 4% complete.

Let me know if any of you pick it up. I'd be happy to do some racing!

I'm not the biggest racing fan, but what I've seen on this game looks really, really good. Think I'm gonna wait until Black Friday though, MS always has really good deals then and think I can easily get it for $30 then.

Is Horizon fun singleplayer or mostly more so multiplayer? I might give it a rent, but I really don't plan on paying for Gold any time soon.

I have only done a few races in multiplayer and I got my butt kicked so I've been playing through the single player to get more practice. A friend of mine just picked it up and he said he wants to run through some of the single player and we were going to try the online co-op campaign in a couple of days. I'll let you guys know how that is.

Trip, I think you'd enjoy it enough just with the single player. The difficulty adjusts to how you race so it always seems just the right amount of challenging. For example there have been a few times the game has told me I have been winning too easily and it asks if I would like it to adjust the AI to give me more of a challenge. It then creates a custom difficulty level and adjusts it so every race feels competitive.

My latest acquisition is The 7th Dragon III Code: VFD on the 3DS. I've actually been interested in the series since the first games came out on the OG DS, but this is the first time the series made it over. Anyway, a GameStop in an unexpected place not only had this game, which is a bit hard to find, but they had the Collectors' Edition. So I jumped on that shit.

I'm really enjoying it so far. It's a dungeon crawler, and plays like the Etrian Odyssey games, only in third person. I enjoyed the EO series, but I really prefer third-person RPGs, so that was a plus. It was apparently produced and illustrated by the main artist behind the Genesis Phantasy Star games. Good stuff. I hope they keep producing these games, hopefully on a full size console at some point.

I'm playing that was well. The story is nothing to write home about but the battle system is fun (if not too easy).

Finally finished Deus Ex: Manking Divided. Pretty disappointing in terms of story and pacing. Some good gameplay bits and still not a TERRIBLE game but doesn't hold a candle to Human Revolution in my mind.

Played through the Blood Ties DLC for Rise of the Tomb Raider. Loved it. Some exploration and puzzle solving in Croft Manor with some narrative covering her family and the history of the series with a bunch of easter egg stuff. Good to be back in the manor!

I also started up Gears 4. Pretty fun. Some surprisingly beautiful environments in here. Looking forward to playing more.

I'm enjoying Gears 4 also. Nothing that great, but solid and fun.

I've been in RPG overload. Playing Dragon Quest VII for my handheld game, and damn is that game huge. I've played for almost 28 hours and the strategy guide I look at says I'm about 25-30% into the game. Damn.

I'm trying to finish all the Final Fantasy games I haven't beat (main series, none of that Crystal Chronicle stuff) before XV comes out. I know I'll probably be disappointed in XV, but it was once my favorite series and I'd like to finish the ones I haven't beat. Just beat XIII-2 and just recently started Lightning Returns. I have a month to beat it. Anyone play it, and if so what were their thoughts on it?

I got Superhot on sale and love this game. Think it's my GOTY right now. Basically an FPS where enemies only move when you do. Plays out more like a puzzle game and the few weapons and moves available have a good less is more approach. Story is super trippy also, kind of like if you combined Stanley Parable with the Scarecrow segments from Arkham Asylum. Right now I'm having a blast with endless mode in it, has a super addicting "one more game" quality to it to get a higher score.

Let's see. I finished the Gears 4 campaign. I really enjoyed it. This game does such a great job with enemy variety. It keeps the combat entertaining longer than it should. I thought the final pre-credits tease about the story was cool too. I tried the multiplayer a bit, but probably won't get into it. The shotgun is definitely obnoxious. I'd love to get into Horde, but who has time to squeeze in a two-hour round of multiplayer? Plenty of people actually, but it doesn't really work for me. I wish they had a shorter version with like limited tries that ramped up faster or something.

I'm working through Rise of the Tomb Raider again too on PS4. Glad they were quick about patching the input lag/deadzone issues. I was surprised it was present in the game at all given the complaints about the Xbox One version, but at least Nixxes fixed it in a hurry (it still hasn't been fixed on Xbox One as far as I know). Mixing in the DLC here and there too. Lara's Nightmare was pretty bad (kind of expected that to be honest). Open combat isn't really Rise's strength. I still need to try Cold Darkness Awakens.

Still playing Uncharted 4 multi. Started using a new gun, the Lowe-S. Not sure if I'm better with it than my usual gun. Probably about the same, but I think I just like the change of pace.

That's how MS does games. Stuffing them full of as many features as possible with zero compression. Wish you could download different sections separately since I have no real interest in PvP that isn't Overwatch. It's even worse if you want a patch since it copies all 80 GB then downloads the patch then gets rid of the copy. So you need 80 GB free to update the game.

It's part of their unified windows idea since that's how smart phone games update. But for an 80 GB PC game, it's a horrible idea

Bought Doom from Gamefly (yup, restarted that madness again) and I've been at work on the campaign. It's one of my favorite games of the year already.

GF also sent me Titanfall 2 but it hasn't arrived yet. Besides that, it's Overwatch and dips into Witcher 3.

The load times aside, a few games like that will burn through your monthly data cap in nothing flat.

Finished the main campaign of Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4. Going to go after the last DLC I haven't played, Cold Darkness Awakened, next.

I've heard great things about the Titanfall 2 campaign. I really wish I had freed up a slot on Gamefly before it came out. Probably won't be able to get it from there for a while now that I missed release. Be sure to let us know what you think of it.

They have a Classic Mode Beta in Uncharted 4 this weekend which I am really enjoying. No sidekicks, mysticals, downs or radar. Power weapons scattered around the map. There are some things I'd tweak, but it is a lot more no-nonsense than 4's standard modes and very welcome in my opinion. I hope they can bring this mode to the game full-time in the future.
