What I've Been Playing...

It's been a while since I've blogged, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to do a round-up of what I'm currently playing! I find that lately, I get seriously invested in a game, then that becomes my 'go-to' game which I don't switch through for a while. However, there's still a few in this list I am trying to flit between. Check them out below.

The Witcher 3, PS4

So #MyPS4Life recently showed me that I've spent 99+ hours on The Witcher 3...and for good reason. While I'm a little slow on discovering this series (I started the third instalment earlier this year), it has easily become one of my favourite games of all time, and is easily the best experience I've had on the PS4 yet. I'm just at the end of the 'Blood & Wine' DLC, and have a bunch of side quests I can return to, but other than that, I've done the main stuff! And no...I've still yet to win a game of Gwent. Someone told me to watch a tutorial on YouTube which breaks things down more easily, so I'll be doing that at some point. If anyone has any useful tips for getting the hang of Gwent, please let me know...

Octopath Traveller, Nintendo Switch

So I've just jumped from one RPG straight into another one, and I'm loving this! At first the bosses seemed near impossible, but as I've gathered the other characters and levelled them up, it's become a lot more manageable. Octopath Traveller combines gorgeous graphics and a lovely score with some truly enjoyable gameplay. I'm 10 hours in, and am finding it a delight to unlock each character and follow their story. If you own a Nintendo Switch, then I highly recommend this one!

Castaway Paradise, PS4

As I await Animal Crossing's Nintendo Switch release, I've been playing through Castaway Paradise. While it isn't quite as cute and charming on the eyes as the Animal Crossing games are, the gameplay is pretty damn similar. I'm so close to grabbing a Platinum trophy on this one that I just keep returning to capture those final bugs and fish!

The Simpsons: Tapped Out, iOS

I'm not a mobile gamer, but this is the only mobile game I actually put some time brief stints. The Simpsons: Tapped Out has been around for years, and is essentially a town builder. Yes, there's plenty of loot boxes and microtransactions, but I have got away with playing this without spending a penny. EA surprisingly are quite generous, and give a lot away for free, meaning I'm never not able to play. I'm on level 115 and my town is huge now!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo Switch

I've been waiting for this for so long, so of course it was preordered! Smash Bros. Ultimate has been out over a week now, and myself and my husband are playing together to slowly but surely unlock each character in that gigantic roster. Nintendo have upped the ante with this one, and have 

Stardew Valley, PS4

I've just returned to this today, as another game to dip in and out of when I am in need of something relaxing that doesn't require too much brainpower. Stardew Valley is such a charming sim-building game, and I've just adopted a cat in game, so this self-confessed cat lady was pretty happy about that.

So that's it! What have you been playing? Let me know in the comments, or on Twitter!

  1. Nice list!

    I picked up The Surge on Friday and I've been playing that

    The game is kind of weird. You start off in a wheelchair in a futuristic development building for mobility. Then you get an exoskeleton armour drilled into your bones WITHOUT ANAESTHETIC!!!
    The building has been overrun by zombies and robots and you can target specific parts of an enemy to rip off or cut that part so you can use it. Stuff like armour and different weapons. I'm really enjoying it!

    1. Just realised that Blogger popped this down as spam, sorry Brad...I've approved it now! :)

      Just had a look at this game, it actually sounds kinda interesting! Definitely worth a play?
