Finally beat Serious Sam 3. Final boss wasn't as bad I thought.

Finished this today. Was definitely good, though the original is still the classic. The feeling of threat in the game feels a bit diminished though, especially after you've 'died' a few times. 

Hit one game breaking bug while playing that led to me having to restart a level, which was completely the fault of the death/fear mechanic.

I'm back to playing My Summer Car, which I hadn't played since 2017 and it has been updated significantly

^I've never played CTR but certainly would like to!

Also, I've hit my first major roadblock in a Crash game...namely the level 'Road to Nowhere' in the first game! Requires near precision jumping the whole level. It's quite nerve-racking.

My best save was always for the third one. I think I probably did have a complete or near complete one for 2, but I can't fully remember. Number 3 was always my most played.

I know I completed Crash Team Racing as well, even though I generally didn't get on with racing games. It seems odd to me that they've not released the remake of that on PC.

^ Crash games resulted in many rage quits back on the PS1 for me. The PC remake versions not much better.

I have never completed Crash 1 to this day.

Enjoying the hell out of Crash N. Sanity Trilogy for the Switch. I already have it for Steam but I don't think my computer can handle it otherwise I wouldn't have had so many awkward deaths(whereas I'm doing fine w/ this version). As per usual the gems are a BITCH to get!!

Now that actually makes sense!

Jamie Lee Curtis is Tannis, I saw sometime in the last few days. Also a bit older than expected but I can sort of see that one working.

Jack Black is Claptrap, apparently. That's the first casting so far, I actually think could really work well, tbh.

May 15th for the Mass Effect remaster.

Unsure at this point whether I want to save what Steam credit I have left for that (I have some the same improvements on ME1 already from mods) or keep it set aside for Cyberpunk as planned. Not heard much about that game lately and what I have hasn't been very positive.

It seems likely they're going to make Lilith a more experienced, mystical figure, by making her older. 

I like that they're making her the protagonist the film though, since she was always my character in Borderlands. 

I shudder to think who they're going to cast as Brick and Mordecai. Brick needs to be a big dude so I really wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being Dwayne Johnson. 

I don't have much expectation of this movie, regardless of who they cast though. Video game movies, in general, don't exactly have a good track record. They really fucked up the last Tomb Raider.

Yeah, I honestly wasn't thrilled when I heard about a live action Borderlands movie in general ( the super cartoony art style is a huge part of the charm, imo), but Kevin Hart being in it just makes me even less interested, because whenever I see him appear in trailers or on shows I watch with my Mom, I find him annoying as fuck. And yeah, Lilith as a 52 year old is Ermm

The Borderlands movie has cast Kevin Hart as Roland.

hmm...I don't know about this one. My first reaction is that this is a major miscast, unless he's playing against type. 

They've already revealed Cate Blanchett as Lilith as well, which also raises eyebrows. Don't mean to sound ageist but why are the casting a 52 year old actress as a character who is supposed to be 27?

I ended up getting The Outer Worlds in the end and so far I don't regret it. The game feels like elements of Fallout: New Vegas, Bioshock, Mass Effect and Borderlands all rolled into one.

Just picked up Far Cry 4. I've neglected to get this one for years. I managed to skip over straight to number 5. I liked both that and 3 (except for Jason Brody who must be the most unlikable player character in any game ever made). 

Also reminded me that I never finished New Dawn. That was the game I was playing during the big hard drive death of 2019. I really must finish that. I don't think it was as good as the base game due to some poor writing decisions but the gameplay was as solid as ever.

I'm not complaining. I already made about a third of what I spent back through more market sales with several hundred items still not sold. 

£71.06 currently sitting there to play with. 

I already played through one of the Metro Exodus DLC's (The Two Colonels), which was pretty solid. 

I've also had a bit of time on Mirror's Edge Catalyst which so far seems an improvement on the first game. I don't remember much about the first one to be honest but this seems a lot of fun.
