Beat all witch trials + verse cards, so all that's left to do in Bayonetta 2 is S+ in Tag Climax then attempt to platinum all the levels:

Finally finished Shtick of Truth, the first half of which was kinda awful; lucky the second half was cool:

You are that good at Bayonetta 2?! Wow. I will listen to the podcast, very interested in your thoughts.

Going by the good people playing tag climax, I'm not very good at Bayonetta 2 at all. Nyaa

EDIT: I also haven't beaten Rodin in single player because I haven't unlocked him, so if I manage to platinum 3rd climax + infinite or accumulate enough cash in tag climax, then there'll be that left to do as well. Which might be beyond me judging by fighting him in co-op.

EDIT2: Put like that, looks like I have a lot left to do. Hrm

Oh, and I will be getting Splatoon on release as well.  I didn't pre-order, but I plan on picking up the limited edition with the Amiibo.

Good call.

To those wondering why I am suddenly digging the idea of Splatoon, the article in EDGE pretty much sold me. It's like a 3D Qix, but team based and a shooter. You can't be seen while travelling in your own ink, but that you get bogged down in others ink is a neat idea. It's a very vertical game, and even when you miss your target you are still making progress by increasing your overall territory.

4 member teams play each other online, though there is also a stand-alone single player game with three main modes.

I beat Bayonetta 1 and 2 this week. PS3 version and Wii U for the second one.

I quit Dangan Ronpa, which is probably stupid, but it got to the point where I was just over the mini games at trial.  You onlyl get to play them 4 times in the game about 8 hours apart from each other and the mechanics on one of them is farily fukt.  It's sellign down here on Ebay for a fair bit, should probably flip it, but who has the time for that? (not me).

I dabbled in Alien Isolation, Miami Hotline, inFamous: Second Son and Zombie U.  Will probably beat Second Son and then go back to the Wii U for ZU. On handheld will start Epic Mickey 2 (Vita).

I pledged $8 on Yooka Laylee and now apparently my name will be in the special thanks list.

I will pledge another $50 for the game when it comes out.

Oh I've been playing Skyrim like a madman as well as Bloodborne.

I'm a level 20 dark elf named Elvin Avocado who majors in sneaking, destruction magic, one handed weaponry & light armor.

In Bloodborne, I just got shot up on a bridge by some crazy fuck shooting at me.

I agree. I don't see the appeal of Splatoon at all.

Though I'm not much more excited for that Banjo rip-off either...

Well it basically is Banjo & Kazooie 3...but that's what is GREAT about it. We don't get games like this anymore!

I quit witcher 2 and started Resistance 3.

So you basically admit that you just don't like Witcher? I mean you don't just stop playing a game like you can't stand it if you think its a good game. It still boggles my mind that you're not into it, but to each his own. When you're really blown away by something its always weird when someone else who's really into the same stuff doesn't like it.

I don't know if this is funny or sad, but after watching the Yooka Laylee footage it dawned on me that this is much more exciting to me than any new console IP Nintendo has done in a long time. I mean to me it looks so much cooler than Splatoon its crazy.

I watched it with a sense of unease thinking - if we didn't know who was making this would anyone give a fuck?

The first time I was into the world and story which was great. This time my main goal was to get to the second act, I wanted to do the other side, but I had to start over to get there. So I was just plowing through it and man i just don't like the combat, or much of the item health system, or  running around back and forth for quests.. But what ruined it for me was the save system. You need to be on top of it which I hate and I died and had to do like 20 minutes of shit fighting and I said fuck it.

Believe me I am just as blown away that there are those that like it so much. It's such a clunky messy game. If not for the great storytelling, great production values and setting I feel it's like any average 6 level game made by some random mid tier developer that maybe gets a small cult following. And you need to visit the RoF I am the nice one to witcher 2. Everyone seems to hate it with stuff like "I rather vomit than play witcher 2 again".

Everyone has that game that just doesn't click. I am hoping the shift in world design and hopefully some combat fixes makes witcher 3 more enjoyable.

I'm with GG on this.  Until Edge posted that heavymetalguy video I had no idea what this was or that it was by former rare employees and "who gives a fuck?" or "this is lame" is the very phrase that was on my mind when I looked at screenshots or videos of yuka lele.  But I also suspect that I wouldn't be all that impressed by the highly revered Rare N64 games if I were to play them now as I never played them back in the day so I have no memories of them (fond or otherwise)
