Fifa 16 - Philippe Coutinho

Fifa is my default goto game if I only have a short amount of time to play, it's perfect for a quick match.

I've now completed my Liverpool team having purchased Daniel Sturridge & I am now concentrating on upgrading my Barclays Premier League team with 80+ rated players, two recent additions include Theo Walcott & Raheem Sterling. A quick video showing a lovely flick by Coutinho to go past a defender & score.


Fallout 4 - Combat

I've done quite a few quests now & have switched out my companion to use Preston Garvey. I've made a quick video to show the combat against a group of raiders,

I like the way the enemies now flank you but with a high perception & agility my accuracy on the weapon is very good so I very rarely tend to miss any shots. I always use vats to attack, I'm not playing it like a FPS game but an RPG & like decide which part of the enemy to attack. For raiders I tend to go for head & on ghouls legs to slow them down.

Settlement building & management can become a bit of chore so I've toned that part of the game down a bit to focus on exploring the wasteland & completing quests.

I will do a video shortly showing the two houses I have built in Sanctuary for the settlers & myself.


New Game - Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris

Taking a break from Fallout 4 and getting back to the PMG.

We tried but Little Big Planet 3 camera in multi-player is a mess & we just could not take it anymore. Time to quit & move onto the next game.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a much more enjoyable top down twin stick shooter with puzzle elements & big bosses.

You can get various upgrades like power rings & new weapons from completing certain challenges like collecting all the red skulls or destroying all the vases.

We completed the first two stages, it was good to play & enjoy something that works for four players in co-op.

Little Big Planet 3? In the bin where else?

New Game - Fallout 4

Sorry MGSV will have to wait for now, Fallout 4 feels very familiar to the previous Fallout 3 & New Vegas games which is not a bad thing because I enjoyed both of those games.

Some slight refinements in control & level upgrades with the introduction of a minecraft style settlement base building mode are the only changes I have noticed so far.

Console sharing with the boys has limited my time in wandering the wasteland, there seems to be a lack of a tutorial so I have been following the in-built help menu & various tips on youtube to figure out base building, not sure if it plays an important part in the game but I have been clearing up Sanctuary Hills & building new homes, power, defences & resource gathering food/water.

My character is level 6 at the moment & focused on perception & agility to increase the vats accuracy & ap points. I have gone for the lockpick, hacking & gun nut perks the other points I have spent on upgrading the SPECIAL stats.

Will get back to questing this weekend & head over to Concord.

Score Hero - I hate them both !!

At the start of season 7 you have to choose another team to join and the options are Manchester United or Chelsea.


I was tempted to delete the app but I went with Chelski.

Currently on stage 155 in which you have to score 4 goals & I can't quite complete all four.


Metal Gear Solid V - It's Tough !!

Spoilers ahead so don't read if you have not yet played the game.

It's been a few weeks since I've played MGSV (because of Fifa 16) & it took me a while to remember the controls. After completing a few side ops one of which gave me a nice stun only SMG gun.

I started mission 6 in which you have to secure a weapon called honey bee? My style of play is very slow I will scan an area for a few minutes making sure everything is tagged & I destroy all comms I see & never kill an enemy. I will always either use a stun gun, put them to sleep or use melee attacks & then fulton them out.

I managed to work my way into the last fort area of the mission where I scanned at least 15+ enemies so I had to thin the numbers by getting detected to draw some out and attack. I managed to use this tactic twice before a sandstorm arrived and I seized the opportunity to charge in and take out the others. It was getting late & stupid rush of blood to the head made me get overrun with enemies & I died. All of my efforts thinning the number of soldiers wasted because the checkpoint is at the start of the area.

It's tough but fun, I'm hoping I can finish it before Fallout 4 but with only 3 weeks left there is no chance that is going to happen so I will either delay my start of Fallout 4 so I can complete MGSV or I will leave MGSV to start Fallout 4.


Ticket to Ride (iOS) - New High Score

When I have an odd five minutes I do enjoy playing a quick game of Ticket to Ride against the CPU.

I managed to set a new high score of 251 with 12 tickets completed.


Fifa 16 (PS4) - Steven Gerrard

Not had much time for gaming, the odd session of Little Big Planet 3 with the Claptrap Boys or the odd game of Fifa 16 Ultimate Team. Gerrard is much cheaper to purchase now that he is older & slower but he is still the central midfielder & captain of my team.

Need to get back to playing MGSV but I need a longer time window so I can sit down and enjoy for a couple of hours.


Five years on

Five years on...

I still think about you big guy every time I play a Batman game or watch a sci-fi movie I think Owen would have enjoyed that.

I know you loved mobile gaming so I'll be playing doodle jump today & trying to beat your high score of 32K.


Update - I tried but I only managed to get 19,370

New Game - Fifa 16 (PS4)

I've not played a fifa game since 13 so it was a long overdue return to ultimate team. I'm posting this new game post very late because I've been playing the game since release & now have a English 442 Bronze, Silver & Gold Squad. I've started to create my Liverpool squad but some of the players like Sturridge are very expensive to purchase.

I'm saving up my coins at the moment to buy Steven Gerrard, I used to just focus on the cups in Fifa 13 but I've started on the seasons mode this time to see how far I can get.

For now enjoy a couple more cracking goals below.

Metal Gear Solid V (PS4) - Motherbase

Got to spend a bit more time with Metal Gear Solid V this weekend, failing really bad trying to use stealth to complete the missions.

I do enjoy using the Fulton recovery system to send enemies back to base, I'm looking at the abilities of these enemies to ensure I dismiss any trouble makers & making sure they are in the correct department for their skill rating. I've just unlocked the ability to upgrade the base but I do not have the required resources yet to upgrade any department.

Side Op missions have now been added which give you a much simpler objective to complete from extract an individual, retrieve weapon blueprint to kill a target.
