Lara Croft Go (iOS) - Completed

Now that I have an iPad of my own that the kids cannot nick I have gone back to playing some games on it.

Lara Croft Go was my first choice, it's a turn by turn based puzzle game that has you obviously searching for treasure whilst avoiding pitfalls & either escaping or killing creatures like snakes/lizards.

I only managed to get stuck on one level for a while until I figured it out but the majority are pretty straight forward & fairly simple. There is also a Hitman Game which use's a similar play-style which I have not yet played. There is a new Monument Valley style game called Dream Machine which I will start next but for now back to Batman.

Batman Arkham Knight - New Game



I had quite a few choices on what to play next after completing MGSV but I decided to go for Batman Arkham Knight, the final game in the Rocksteady trilogy.

Firstly I like that is has a difficulty mode setting so I went straight for easy to save on any rsi pains during the long fight sequences. I've played a fair bit already just not had time to blog about it, there are tons of side missions from the riddler challenges, murder investigations to rescuing firemen.

I wasn't sure how the batmobile would be used but it is implemented pretty well & enjoyable to drive around & complete various challenges. The main campaign so far is about Scarecrow & other villains who have teamed up to take over the city. There are some very good story sequences which I won't spoil but I am enjoying the game very much.

Draw Something - Gameboy

I've not played Draw Something for a few years but my youngest is enjoying the game lately & wanted someone to challenge. Thankfully my account was still valid with all the colours that I purchased previously.

One of my recent better drawings was the Nintendo Gameboy, guess the game?

Clash Royale - That winning feeling

Winning a hard fought match is very enjoyable & it is even more satisfying if you manage to win in the last second of the game.

With 3 seconds to go till overtime I launched some arrows which destroyed the enemy tower with no time left on the clock.

I am firmly in arena 4 now with around 1300+ trophies (it fluctuates depending on my wins/losses).

Need some more gold to upgrade the Prince & then aim for 1400 trophies to make it into arena 5.

Metal Gear Solid V - Completed

The final few missions have you replaying some of the earlier missions with more difficulty which seems really odd not sure why?

Anyhow in between these are some new missions to complete & a chain of Eli/Quiet missions which finish off their story-lines.

The final mission surprise surprise is a replay of the first but with some home truths thrown in to show you the real picture.

A sometimes confusing experience but overall an enjoyable open world game, not sure if we will ever see another game in the series but I for one will not miss the long cut scenes.

Goodbye Snake.
