December 2023 Update

Playing NOW

Persona 5 Tactica (XSX)

It's got mixed reviews but I'm enjoying it. I've not played a turn based xcom like game for a while (last was in 2021 Mutant Year Zero).

Forza Motorsport (XSX)

I've played the tutorial section and first cup but have not been back to it since Persona 5 Tactica was released. I expect I'll be playing this very slowly over 2024 in small bouts.




Playing NEXT

Assassin's Creed Mirage (PS5)

I managed to pick this up cheap £15 on facebook. I've not touched the PS5 since I purchased the XSX late August this year. I know I'm going to miss the XSX quick resume feature already.


Playing FUTURE

Starfield (XSX)

I think this needs a little bit longer to cook, reports of memory leaks/crashes, I'm going to a wait a while longer.

Spiderman 2 (PS5)

Not purchased it yet, will wait now until I've completed Assassin's Creed Mirage.

Baldur's Gate 3 (PS5)

Again not purchased, with the physical version being released in 2024 I'll wait for now, also you never know Microsoft may splash the cash and make it available on gamepass

Like a Dragon Infinite Wealth (XSX)

Probably the only game I'm going to buy on day one in 2024.

Cyberpunk 2077 (XSX)

With the complete edition releasing soon will definitely be playing this in 2024!

Star Wars Jedi Survivor (XSX)

The XSX is now my preferred console for multiplatform releases because of quick resume. I was hoping for a decent Black Friday deal but will wait for the inevitable gamepass release.

Other titles on my wishlist are

Midnight Suns

Metal Gear Solid Collection 1

Shadow Gambit - Cursed Crew

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth


Playing Backlog

In no particular order I own the following I still want to play.


Life is Strange


Persona 5 Strikers

Lost Judgment

Outer Wilds

Shadow Tactics

Disco Elysium

Empire of Sin

Bioshock Collection

Dragons Dogma Dark Arisen

Like A Dragon Ishin 


I'm still alive!

It has been over a year since my last post!

I'm still enjoying playing video games although I do have far less time than I would like. I play only on the PS5, the switch has been relegated to family console status.

I started 2022 with Fortnite & ended the year with Fortnite (completed list below). Thankfully my daughter has quit playing Fortnite now so I have also thrown in the towel.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 (PS5)
Yakuza 3 (PS5)
Yakuza 4 (PS5)
Doraemon Story of Seasons (PS5)
Lost in Random (PS5)
Detroit Become Human (PS5)
Tiny Tina Assault on Dragon Keep (PS5)
Plague Road (PS5)
The Walking Dead - Final Season (PS5)
Beyond Eyes (PS5)
Planet Coaster (PS5)
Stray (PS5)
Yakuza 5 (PS5)
Toem (PS5)
Last Day of June (PS5)
Ratchet and Clank - Rift Apart (PS5)
Mafia Definitive Edition (PS5)
Guardians of the Galaxy (PS5)
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4 (PS5)

2022 was an enjoyable year for the PS5 with Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart showing off the power of the console & a great game to play. I also enjoyed my time with Planet Coaster & the Yakuza games.

I have had a slow start to 2023 but I have completed the Yakuza games and will move onto the two Judgment games soon. I enjoyed Horizon Forbidden West even though it did test my patience to get the platinum. I hate Melee Pits!

Next? God of War Ragnarok!
