@LtSarge nice one, glad you are enjoying it! I was definitely tempted to get them when they had that big sale on a while back. I think 5 looks quite interesting too. I don't think I'll have the time for all of them these days though so I'm glad I didn't go down that rabbit hole

I finished The Medium. I enjoyed it, story really hooked me but it is a slow burner. The sound and especially the music are on point, some great tracks towards the end of the game. Had a few graphical glitches but nothing game breaking. Got 920/1000 gamerscore without a guide so decent for you achievement hunters out there.

Overall good, I enjoyed it.

Just finished Far Cry 3 on 360. Bloody brilliant game! This is one of the best open world games I've ever played. The story was amazing, the tropical setting was really nice, the characters were likeable and memorable, the villains were great and most importantly memorable, the story missions were all varied and really fun, the open world had lots of different side activities to do, the progression system was great, the gunplay felt smoother and better than FC2 (and enemies were not bullet sponges like in FC2 either), the crafting system was a neat idea, everything was just absolutely splendid. After having played it for about 20 hours or so, I have very few complaints about this game. People say that this is the best entry in the series and I 100% agree. If there's one open world game that I would recommend to anyone, it's Far Cry 3. Don't miss out on this game!

On a side note, I did most of the things in the game and managed to get 800 G, which is very good considering it's an open world game where achievements could be tied to lots of different tasks. It's a really good achievement list in other words!

I finished Maneater, and also got 100% of the achievements. Pretty fun and unique open world game where you play as a shark. There are some light RPG mechanics too, with leveling up your shark and it’s different body parts.

@LtSarge I love the Far Cry series! Have you played Far Cry 4 and 5? I think both 4 and 5 are much better than 3, with Far Cry 5 being my absolute favourite in the series and one of my favourite games from last generation

@JoakimZ No, not yet. I'm actually going through the Far Cry series in order since I tend to appreciate the later games more that way. I mean, I freaking loved Far Cry 3 because of how much better it is compared to the previous games. But yeah, I'm absolutely planning on continuing this series since I already own 4, Primal, 5 and New Dawn on PS4 so I'm all set to play through those! Although I think I'll be taking a break from this series for now just to avoid fatigue since I've played through three Far Cry games in a row now .

I've heard though that Far Cry 4 is better in some regards compared to Far Cry 3, although 3 seems to have the better story and characters. Contrary to popular opinion, I did like the protagonist's friends in FC3. I just wish you could've spent more time getting to know them since they were rather interesting. I'm definitely looking forward to playing Far Cry 4 in the future and also its DLC packs since I apparently bought them years ago but I never played through the base game first, lol.

@LtSarge I love the gameplay of Far Cry 3, but I hate pretty much every single character in the game, both friends and foes. I especially dislike Vaas, as I just find everything about him incredibly annoying.
It’s like they tried so hard to make him crazy and deep at the same time, but he just became irritating instead.

”Have I told you the definition of insanity?”

Well yes, Vaas, you’ve told me every time I’ve met you. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

But yeah, annoying characters aside, it’s still a wonderful game that still holds up very well today. Though I think every game in the series released since, except Primal, is better than FC3.

I think I would rank the series like this:

1. Far Cry 5
2. Far Cry 4
3. Far Cry: Blood Dragon
4. Far Cry: New Dawn
5. Far Cry 3
6. Far Cry: Primal
7. Far Cry 2

I haven’t played any version of Far Cry 1 yet, so I don’t know where I would rank that. I have the Xbox 360 version of Far Cry Classic, so maybe I’ll play that before Far Cry 6.

@JoakimZ Ah I see. Yeah, Far Cry 1 is a decent game from what I could remember, although avoid Far Cry Instincts Predator at all cost! They were basically remakes/reimaginings of FC1 but they are absolutely terrible games. They were the reason why it took me this long to get to FC2 and FC3, lol. I just couldn't get through them without taking long breaks in between sessions.

Just finished Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on 360. I really enjoyed the campaign in this game! I've been playing the MW games on Veteran and while the first and second games were less enjoyable due to how difficult they were on Veteran, MW3 felt much more forgiving and therefore more enjoyable. Although the first two games' stories were definitely more memorable than MW3's. All in all I really liked playing through three classic CoD games. Before going through this trilogy, I hadn't played much of this series. So it feels great to have finally experienced some of the games. I also have Black Ops 1 and 2 on 360 so I'm definitely going to play those in the future as well.

Just finished the campaign on Halo Reach on normal. Was a neat story but nothing super special. Off to Combat Evolved next in my attempt to play all of the MCC before Infinit launches. I'd give it a go again in co-op.

@Krzzystuff I'd be up for a bit of Halo. I need to pre arrange the game though as TV time is in short supply in my house and I also don't have a mic so can't talk.

Just finished Just Cause 2 on 360. I gotta say, I've had completely wrong expectations for this series ever since I gave it a go 7-8 years ago. I honestly thought that this game would have lots of story missions (sort of like GTA) in a huge sprawling open world. But turns out I was wrong, the game pretty much only has 7 story missions and that's that. I finished the game in just under 12 hours, which is extremely short for an open world game. And the thing is, I've pretty much experienced all that there is to do in this game. Races, faction missions, blowing up facilities and causing chaos, collecting a lot of various things and so on. There's just not much variety in this game, the whole point of it is for you to get lost in a sandbox experience and come up with stuff to do on your own. Which is fine for people who like that stuff because that's how I used to play open world games like GTA and Just Cause 2 back when I played them for the first time. I would constantly focus on just going all out instead of doing story missions. But I was still genuinely surprised to see how short the story mode is in JC2. I mean, I guess the faction missions are also part of the story but most of them are so generic and repetitive. Go here, blow this up, kill that guy, escort this person and so on. There's no interesting narrative in the majority of these missions. Although I have actually encountered a few interesting ones. For example, one has you go explore a supposedly haunted island but it turns out that it's inhabited by soldiers from the Japanese Imperial Army who think that World War II is still going on and are destroying all aircrafts who get too close to the island through an EMP wave (hence why people think it's haunted). That mission really stood out to me and was actually very cool. It's too bad though that all of these missions aren't as good as that one.

All in all this game was a very fun and cool experience considering it was made over a decade ago. It's crazy how huge the map is and how detailed it is for a 2010 title. And while I wish there were more story missions, I am planning to do more faction missions in hopes of finding more interesting ones like the haunted island one. I also feel like I've not spent enough time playing it overall considering I finished it in just 12 hours, so I think I'll put down at least a couple of more hours before I move on from it.

I just finished Journey to the Savage Planet....i think? I finished the last of the he main story but still have to find some more fuel the the official ending? I'll finish it off to see what happens but as usual I'm not big on finding every collectible as I have more new games to play to spend my time on vs. watching YouTube to find collectibles.

Having said that this is a great game. Really loved the colours of the environments and it really gave me Boarderlands vibes with the humour. Really glad i jumped into this before it left gamepass and highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't played it yet. It's not an overly long game so get in there before March 31st.

Just beat Resident Evil 3 Remake earlier this morning. I happen to like it along with Resident Evil 2 Remake.

the plot and Nemesis Tyrant are fleshed out alot better in the remake. Even though the game went a bit nutty with Nemesis's final form but it was still awesome.

Just finished up Deliver Us The Moon and i really enjoyed it. If you haven't played it yet do yourself a favour and play it before it leaves Gamepass

@BAMozzy so can you play the story solo pretty good and just need multiplayer for endgame?

Krzzystuff

Xbox Gamertag: Krzzystuff

@Krzzystuff Everything can be played Solo - including the 'post' Campaign content. However, to reach the highest 'tier', you either need to play co-operatively or be incredibly good at the game. The higher the tier, the harder the difficulty and tougher the enemies are to kill. The way the game is set up, ie enemies that either swarm or flank you as well as those that have unerring accuracy at range, there is a Class that specialises in dealing with those. Of course, you can use Snipers or Shotguns for example regardless of class but its difficult to try and focus on Sniping the snipers whilst being rushed and if you are trying to deal with the enemies up close, those ranged enemies are able to take chunks out of your health bar.

Like I said though, you don't have to play the game at the 'highest' difficulty. You could for example play through everything on the 'Lowest' Tier - but you do get less loot drops from enemies and with lower stats. The Tiers aren't 'just' difficulty settings but also determine the 'level' of gear you can equip too. For example, the Max Level is 30 for a character but depending on what tier you unlock depends on what level gear you can equip. If you unlock every Tier - inc the End game Tiers, you can equip up to Level 50 gear. If you are playing on the 'highest' available tier but not unlocked the maximum Tier yet, XP earned goes to your World Tier too - but if you die, you lose World Tier XP too - but you can also change the world tier anytime. If you are stuck on a boss for example, you can drop the world tier to beat him - although any rewards will likely be of 'lower' stats. Everything can be modded and improved - inc rarity, mods and bonuses...

I finished Assassin’s Creed Valhalla the other day. It took me about 150 hours and I did pretty much everything the game has to offer. Every sidequest and activity, all weapons and armours collected, and every achievement unlocked. At least until Wrath of the Druids release later this month.

I absolutely love this game. It’s hard to say which I liked better of Valhalla or Odyssey. Odyssey has more likeable characters and I like the world better in that game, but Valhalla has better combat and a much better equipment system where every weapon and piece of armour is unique.
