@LtSarge let me know how infliction is; I was curious about that one. I just purchased the Amnesia collection, Soma, Outlast 1 and 2, and Layers of Fear 2 as far as horror games go. I'm also interested in Dark Pictures, Bioshock collection, Ghostbusters remastered, and Remothered but haven't made those purchases yet. I purchased Ghost Recon Wildlands, Far Cry 4, and Infinite Warfare elsewhere for real cheap as well. All I'm doing is expanding my backlog which I was already finding a hard time getting through.

@MAC26 Well it's hard not to expand your backlog when there are just so many great games on sale, so I totally feel you.

I've seen poor reception for Infliction from the Western audience but I've been following Japanese Youtubers and there have been so many people who have played it and enjoyed it. Same with Home Sweet Home, which is why I bought them. They have the same style of Outlast and Amnesia, i.e. run and hide horror with puzzle elements. In fact, people have been comparing Infliction to Outlast, Silent Hill and Fatal Frame, so it does seem promising. Hopefully I'll give it a try this weekend and tell you how it is!

Those are some great purchases right there! SOMA is the scariest game that I've played between it and Outlast, but that game is really scary as well. After having recently played it, I understand now why Outlast is considered a modern classic. It's so simple but still so good and captivating from beginning to end. Highly recommend giving it a try first out of those games!

I've also bought Remothered since a while ago but haven't played it. Supposedly it's really good so if you feel like you want to buy more horror games then that would be a good one to get. BioShock Collection is great value at €10, but I don't really feel like they're true horror games. The first game definitely has scary moments in the beginning but over time it just becomes a standard first-person shooter, which is fine but I kinda got tired of it because of that.

Been spending quite some time these past few days tidying up my PS Vita library, removing games that take up too much space and adding the rest in folders in order to minimise the amount of screens I have. It also made me map out the games that I still need to play, such as Final Fantasy 7-9, GTA Vice City Stories, RE 1-3, the Persona games etc. But it has also made me realise that there are a lot of PS1 and PSP games available on the Vita store that I have never played and would love to play on a portable device. For example, I just bought Alundra on PS1 on impulse since I heard that the game is very similar to the 2D Zeldas like A Link to the Past and it was only €5 so I thought why the heck not. Played it for about an hour today and the game is actually really good, and yeah it does feel a lot like a 2D Zelda game, with real-time combat, puzzles, dungeons and so on. Can't believe that I have never heard about this game until now, and at €5 it's a steal since it's apparently a 30 hour game.

After discovering this hidden gem, I decided to do some research on other games on the store and found ones like Grandia, Wild Arms and Suikoden that I might potentially buy as well. The cheap prices as well as the portable factor of the Vita have made me want to invest in more games like these. Not to mention PSP titles like Lunar Silver Star Harmony, GTA Liberty City Stories and more. I actually decided to give Vice City Stories a try yesterday since I have it in my backlog and was absolutely amazed at how Rockstar managed to make a 3D GTA game on a handheld. It plays so well and this makes me want to buy Liberty City Stories as well.

It sucks though that the PAL region got the short end of the stick in terms of PS1 releases on PSN. Games like Chrono Cross, Xenogears, Legend of Mana, The Legend of Dragoon and more are only available on the NA store, which absolutely sucks! I would love to play these games but apparently you can't really switch between accounts without having to format your Vita and utilise two memory cards. I might do that when I've gone through my Vita backlog and have nothing else to play, but right now this process would just be a hassle for me.

Recently came across Metal Jesus Rocks on YouTube and have been watching some of his old hidden gems videos from various consoles. Some great looking stuff that I've missed out on ver the years, so have had the urge to go back and pick up some things I've never played. Almost bought a Vita and a Gameboy Colour to the other day, but figured my backlog need trimming a little before I start picking up anything else. I've still got a few older gen consoles lying around so will maybe go back and play a few things I've missed out on while I'm waiting to get my Series S at Xmas.
Just picked up Astro Boy Omega Factor for GBA which seems to get mentioned in a lot of "Best of.." type lists and Aqua Aqua for the PS2 which was only a couple of £s.

I think that'll probably be it for a while though; just did a quick tally of all the stuff in my backlog and it's probably close to 300 games if I include all the free PS+ games from PS3 era that I never got around to playing (hopefully I can still play them), PS Classic that I've barely touched, Switch Online games that I've not played yet, a fair selection of Switch games I picked up on sale and various stuff on PC that was either cheap on Steam or Humble Bundle, or free on Epic Store...

Since my last post, I've bought Suikoden I & II and Wild Arms on PS Vita, Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow on Wii U, and today I ordered Yakuza: Like A Dragon and Paper Mario: The Origami King on PS4 and Switch respectively. I think my Vita purchases are done since I have a lot of JRPGs on the system now. On Wii U though I still have plenty of games I want to get on top of the Castlevania titles, such as Advance Wars and Golden Sun. Finally, I got Yakuza on PS4 and Paper Mario on Switch since they were on sale for €30 each, which I think is a great price point for these games. I got the PS4 version of Like A Dragon simply because the base Xbox One version apparently runs horribly, with the game running at 15-25 FPS and having long load times in between cut scenes (about one minute!). So I got the PS4 version instead which runs at mostly a stable 30 FPS and with only half a minute of load time. Not to mention that PS4 has rest mode (which Xbox One also has but since I have OG Xbox One, putting games in rest mode creates a noticeable buzzing sound in the background, which is annoying and so I try to avoid using this feature on Xbox) and I've been using my PS Vita a lot lately, so I might use it for playing Yakuza on it through Remote Play. Anyway, I'm very happy with these purchases!

I'm also considering getting The Last of Us Part II on PS4 since I want to know what all the fuss is about with that game even though I know some major spoilers. I really just want to experience the game for myself. And the game is on sale now for €30 so I might bite at that price, but we'll see.

@LtSarge Suikoden is such an underrated RPG, it was one of my favorites on the PS one, much better then FFVII

Any of you guys played Vampyr? I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on it as it's only £8 odd in the sale and I've had my eye on it for a while.

@Tasuki Yeah I can't believe I've never given this game a chance until now. I played it for an hour and it's such a unique experience. I love the emphasis on world building and characters, not many JRPGs do that stuff. Glad that I caught wind of this series since these games are not available on many platforms.

@crippyd I've heard that it's a decent game but nothing too special. The gameplay can get a bit repetitive apparently, but the setting is lovely. I think if you keep you expectations levelled then you might enjoy it since it's apparently a unique experience.

@LtSarge Thanks for that. Sounds like it'll be worth a punt for the small outlay.

@crippyd My son and I enjoyed it. For that price I'd say it's worth it especially if you like vampires and stuff like that.

My Backlog

Tasuki

@LtSarge Yeah and it's fun trying to find all the characters in the game, which I will warm you if you don't get at certain points of the game you won't be able to get at any other time. Also not sure how it works on Vita but on the original PS if you played Suikoden II with a memory card with a save file of Suikoden you will unlock a neat little surprise.

All the games were fantastic in that series except Suikoden Tactics so if you enjoy the first one I highly recommend finding and playing the other ones.

@Tasuki Oh cool, glad that I have both Suikoden I and II on Vita then. What the Vita does with memory cards is that it creates a virtual one basically, so hypothetically Suikoden II should be able to recognise a save file from the first game on the memory card. Cool stuff!

Yeah I actually looked up other retro games on PS3 and found that Suikoden III and IV are available on there as well! Although I haven't heard much good about IV, the third game seems to be one of the best games in the series, so I might at least grab that one too.

Last game I bought, earlier today actually, is Strange Brigade, made by the same brilliant team at Rebellion software who made the Sniper Elite games. If you love classic monster and/or adventure movies and Indiana Jones/Nathan Drake type of stuff, then this might be right up your alley. Here's a couple of videos:

I just started Brutal Legend last night, played a few hours and it's pretty good. Definitely some good tunes in there.

After saying I was done buying anything for a while, I've picked up Metal Slug Advance and Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance for GBA, Mario Golf for the Gameboy, Cross Code for Switch and Metroid Prime Federation Force and Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers for 3DS.

I really need to stop now, the backlog is growing quicker than I can play them and I think my wife might kill me if another game drops through the letterbox any time soon!

Well I just spontaneously visited an online retailer and saw that they had just started their Christmas sale with ridiculously high discounts. A lot of good deals were already sold out, but I managed to snag a few, which were Maneater and Wasteland 3 on Xbox One for €5 each. I've also been meaning to buy The Last of Us Part II for quite some time now and seeing as how the same site had the game for €30 I decided to get it as well. Can't wait to play all these games!

I decided to snag some RPGs that are discounted in the Switch eShop Christmas sale and those are Nexomon Extinction and Star Ocean: The First Departure R. I got the first game simply because it's a Pokémon clone of the old formula and it's absolutely brilliant. It fully captures the feel of a Pokémon game while also delivering some unique. Definitely glad that I got this game. Star Ocean has been on my wishlist since last year since I've never played a game in this series and I would love to check it out starting from the first game. Hopefully I'll find it to my liking!

Was going to start up Sakura Wars tomorrow, but I think I'm going to try & get back into Dragon Quest Heroes first.
