God of War - 10/10

Holy cow. What a game.

The story itself, while presented nicely (dad and kid feels, etc), is a bit generic. Nothing unexpected here. And the main character is full of self absorbed gravitas. Laughable viking manliness. Vikings seem to be the new ninjas: A trope to impress kids and teens.

But the presentation of the nordic mythology is amazingly fun and awe inspiring (world serpent, dead giants) and makes more than up for the minor weaknesses in the story.

And finally the gameplay and combat programming itself is simply incredible.

Pretty much my favourite PS4 game, though Horizon Zero Dawn is really close. Can't wait for Ragnarok

I came to realise the Wii U is a criminally underappreciated console. Super Mario Maker, Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World, Breath of the Wild, Smash Bros, Captain Toad, The Windwaker Remake and God knows what else are absolutely brilliant.

I'm also catching up on my Wolfenstein gaming. Bought Old Blood, New Colossus and Young Bood for €15 in the steam sale. First gotta finish Batman Arkham Origins though.

I know I'm playing 7 year old games here. But hell, I've missed out on playing many games since XB1/PS4 came out and honestly, not much change since then. 7 or 8 year old games still look and play fantastic. It's a brilliant chest of gold to crack open right now.

Been playing a bit of Superhot VR. It is in one word Fantastic, with a capital F. Really makes you feel like you're in The Matrix or something, dodging bullets.

Yeah, to this day, aside from Alyx, I'd say Superhot VR is as close to a "Killer App" as it gets for VR.

I gotta figure out how remote desktop works on Quest 2 to be able to run Alyx, but when I get to figuring that out, Alyx is definitely something I want to try.

I'm also enjoying Beat Saber a lot. Between that and Superhot you're getting a pretty good workout :)

I played through Wolfenstein - The Old Blood. Enjoyable mindless romp. I read it was supposed to be an expansion for The New Order but released as standalone game. And while I did play The New Order before, it can easily be played as standalone game without having played The New Order. If you have 8 or 9 hours to spare, give this game a shot. The combat is solid, the weapons feel good and it's all pretty much no-nonsense nazi shooting. Gonna give Wolfenstein II - New Colossus a try after this.
