^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.

Picked up the new Amnesia game on discount this morning. Spent some of my reserve credit on Steam that was earmarked for Cyberpunk. Starting to feel like it would sit there forever now since I'm still not seeing many good reports about that game. I think I'm waiting for a real deep discount now on it.

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

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.

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

I never got very far with this one, for some reason. I must try it again.

Finished! Yeah the game's got quite the twisted story! Now time to move on to another game I've been procrastinating for beating for some time: Resident Evil: Revelations 2.

Another Terraria build I worked on today.


This is easily my favourite of my own builds yet.

I'm about 11 hours into Mass Effect 1 on the Legendary Edition. So far, the improvements seem fairly minor: Graphics are definitely better, combat feels a tad better, and the Mako seems to feel a bit better, but it's definitely still not up to par with how I remember ME2 playing (I guess I'll see how that feels sometime next week, when I get to it.) 

The side quests are actually fun, though, and I'm enjoying driving the Mako around the different planets more than I did before, which is good. It almost feels like Andromeda on a smaller scale in many ways, with even combat basically being a primitive version of that game, while ME2/3 have a more tactical cover based style, as far as I remember. So far, I'm definitely loving the game as much as I did before, even though it's definitely a bit janky at times, lol

What platform are you using? Console or PC? I have ME 2&3 on PS3, but have never played the first one.

PS4. I played the originals on Xbox 360, because that was my system for most of the console gen, but this time I went back to Sony, as usual (likely will for PS5 as well, with a gaming laptop as a secondary option.)

I'm quite happy with the originals until the Legendary gets a price cut. I was playing a modded version of ME1 recently though didn't finish it yet for some reason or another and it looks pretty damn good now for free.

I can definitely see it not being worth it for PC owners, as with most remasters (though my brother got it on PC and seems happy with it.) But for people like me who only had it on older consoles, I'd say the improved graphics and small overhauls are enough to justify buying it again, especially for the chance to have it on a new(er) system you plan on keeping around for a while (or in my case, even if I ditch my PS4, I know the PS5 will also be able to play it, so the copy won't become useless, or anything.)

I think the best way to describe ME1 Legendary Edition, is it's pretty much exactly the game I remembered it to be, instead of being exactly what it was in reality. Just playing it based on my knowledge of the original, it felt exactly how I remembered it, but then going back to watch footage of the original I can see this version is much smoother and more polished compared to that, so it pretty much adjusts the game so it matches what your nostalgia remembers it being like. Haven't gotten to ME2 yet (I've so far done the dig site and Feros, as far as main story missions go, though I might get to Noveria tonight, after a bunch of side stuff) but from what I've heard, it and ME3 also had slight adjustments, though they'll mostly just be better looking versions of their originals.

I'm most interested in it for improvements to ME1 (which is a lot more clunky to play), which is also why I don't want to drop the full £54.99 on it. 

I still really want to play Cyberpunk 2077, but I was put off by all the problems and I haven't been hearing much about that game lately. Reviews on Steam aren't improving much by the look of it.
