Inspired by a question I was just about to ask Satsuma (not Saturnalian or IanA or whatever he used to be)

Beex - what games are you gaming right now ?

I've not really played anything for months. Just not into it at all right now.

Unsurprisingly, I'm still on Binding of Isaac. However, I'm in the home stretch - I have one more achievement left to unlock, which is to play 31 daily challenges, which means I'm just playing it once a day until it unlocks and then I'll try and find something else to get stuck into, but nothing is really grabbing me.

I've just finished BOTW and have my eye on starting Titanfall 2 next. However, Wonderboy 3 is looking like a more attractive prospect at the moment as I'll be able to play it on the go.

Apart from that, I want to give The Coven a go on the 3DO. I downloaded it last night but you'll have to Google it to find out any more about it.

Snetterton and Myrtle Beach have just been announced as coming soon so I'm already scoping them out on Wikipedia etc. ;)

I have been playing Motorsport Manager on my iPhone and I'm probably over halfway in Until Dawn, which is quite good fun if a bit schlocky.

NieR Automata, or Space Engineers if friends are online.
Spade Engineers is a hell of a time sink. Don't even notice the time going by and suddenly its 4am.

Well, let me tell you...Hollow Knight on the peeeeceeee.

I've got 22 hours clocked in and it's absolutely fucking marvellous: Metroidvania mixed with Dark Souls.

I was thinking how to describe my experience with it just yesterday and this what I came up with:

Remember the hollow tree in Dark Souls? I got stuck there after I became cursed for the first time with half health and I was having a shocking time trying to progress with half health to no avail. The game had fucked me and I was desperate; making no progress down the tree or through the pissy swamp. Instead I decided to climb out, go through Blighttown, the fucking sewer and back up to the old hag who was the only person I knew who sold the curse reversal. That trip back was a massive slog and absolutely draining. I can't remember exactly how long it took me to get up there but I think it was a good couple of hours. Finally I made it back and then, exhausted, I went back, said fuck that tree and those pissing frogs and had a go at the spider boss. After the spider boss (and many attempts trying to kill her) I found the lava world, then Izalith, then I rang the bell and went to death trap castle, then Anor Londo. Christ, I'd almost forgot about the tree. I'd just found so many other places. Then I lost a shit load of Souls to those two archers on that walkway and had to rush back to get a shit load of Souls. Fucking hell, I was pissed off and I'd left a bunch on a ledge and had been launched off multiple times with an arrow in my face. Fucking game.

That's Hollow Knight. But less aggressively painful.

I got my ass handed to me by a boss that had a terrible run from the bonfire/bench past two sorcerers that you just couldn't avoid. You have to take them on and they are fucking relentless. I'd given up and decided to explore elsewhere, before I found a massive cliff side, a diamond mine, the royal waterways and some other places. I forgot all about the boss I'd been at for an hour. That feeling of exploration (but on a sort of smaller 2D scale) that I got from Dark Souls 1 is almost perfectly captured. At one point I fell into a pit unveiling another massive area that didn't want me there at all and lost all my souls/currency. I had to fight all the way back and launch myself down there absolutely terrified I'd lose my souls/currency. It was the hollow tree and those archers all over again in a single place.

I don't think I've played a game that has managed to capture the spirit of Dark Souls 1 like Hollow Knight. It's different in lots of other ways but the feeling it has evoked in me has made me want to play it and nothing else.

It's massive, it's beautiful, it's a pleasure to listen to and, most of all, it's absolutely brilliant.

It's not for "casuls", mind, which is why it's a bit strange coming only to the Switch. :/

On the train I might play some Exploding Kittens, but it's unlikely.

At home I'm trying to get through Horizon: Zero Dawn. It's not rubbish or anything, but it's not Factorio.

Bum of the Week!

I'm still playing XCOM Plus on the Vita on my commutes. Think I'm on the final level and I foolishly put my star sniper Lauren Laverne into Psi-Ops training so is unavailable. My only other sniper is Courtney Love and she's woefully under-developed.

Luckily I have colonels Mark Ruffalo, Judy Murray, Nigella Lawson, Mary Anne Hobbes and Jay-Z waiting in the wings to bring da ruckus.

And I started DOOM last night and am pleased by how smooth and fast it is. Incidentally, is it meant to be impossible to see anything? I turned the gamma down as per the setup's instructions and I could barely see anything in the opening room, and was flapping around trying to see stumbling zombies and find the door. Now I've turned the gamma back up and see everything but I don't know if I'm meant to be able to see less for SCAREZ.

Nothing more than some family guy and survivors on my phone. I've promised myself Resi 7 when my uni work is done though (I'd be tempted this weekend if we didn't have other things we needed to get done).

Xbone - Forza Horizon 3 - not much love for the FH games on here I know but this one is the best of the lot - like playing Pure or Split/Second for some bits, Need for Speed (the decents ones) in others and Sega Rally for other bits. All somehow working together.
Phone - Pokemon Go - for the excercise and daughter kudos mainly now
PS4 - Deus Ex:Mankind Divided - squatting simulator with extra punching through walls bits

Just Hearthstone and fruit machine emulators really, even Zelda has had to take a back seat.

Multiplayer on Saturdays is the trusty old GTAV/Grid Autosport/Dirt3.

Other than that occasional stuff in WoW with the family but I'm not playing the game outside of family duties.

Overall this is good because it is saving me dropping £2500 on a new PC on an ongoing basis.

I'm also watching more telly than I used to thanks to the wealth of great series on Netflix, which is reducing the time I spend playing games.

I'm currently hopelessly addicted to Assassins Creed: Syndicate. After not touching them at all since hating the very first one way back in the day this latest one has really grabbed me by the balls. It's got it's control annoyances at times, and it's repetitive in that way only modern open-world games can be, but it's just flat out a whole load of fun. Not least because the addition of the grapple hook and the stealthy nature of the entire thing means most of the encounters are basically Arkham style murder-fests. I might even go for all the collectibles because once I've murdered everyone who needs murdered I'm quite relishing the idea of a relaxing romp around London grabbing pointless shiny things; though we'll see if I still feel like that by the time I actually finish it. I did murder the Big Bad's second in command last night thought so I'm presumably not that far from the end.

NieR:Automata, Ketsui, the Rick and Morty VR thing and Shadow War: Armageddon are my playing-things at the moment, and they're all very good.
