Looks like it's a slow day here on TAY...a slow news TAY if you will. Let's change that.

Let's discuss what everyone is playing, or what games you're looking forward to. it doesn't have to be around the corner, the game can be years away if you want. I'll go first.

What I'm currently playing

Pokemom Black 2 - With my 3DS still away getting fixed I needed to get my weekly fix of Pokemon. I only realised a few days I never played Black 2 vanilla. I always had it randomised, or did a nuzlocke or used Pokegen in it. So I decided I'll play through it plain as it can be. It's still pretty good. The selection of Pokemon is amazing! Riolu and Mareep at the start? That's fantastic. The story isn't great compared to Black/White, but to me it's better than the first games in every way.

Evolve Alpha - After being postponed on the PS4 and spending hours waiting to join a game I finally managed to get 4 games in. I don't know. It's fun, but I feel it won't be worth paying full price for it. The classes are great but the best thing is playing as the monster. That's what's going to attract the most people. It's also a game where you need someone to play with.

Demons's Souls - Bloodborne relighted my fire for the Souls games, so I decided to start off at the start. After playing Dark Souls 1 & 2, Demon's Souls just seems too easy, even though I thought DS2 was easier than Demon's Souls. That said, I'm stuck on the Fake King Allant boss. It's weird though because last time I fought him he was no problem. Also I'm too stubborn to move on so I won't move on until I beat him.

What I'm looking forward to

  • Pokemon ORAS - Oh man, this is what X/Y should have been. Being able to play through Hoenn I'm 3D and with updated graphics will be so good. Most likely my GOTY. I'm actually really impressed how good it looks graphically. X/Y seems really dull compared to ORAS bright, colourful graphics.
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition - I've never played a Dragon Age game, but this looks just far too good to pass up. I have yet to get a good, meaty game for my PS4, and this looks like it can fill the void.
  • Bloodborne - The alpha made me really excited. I'm a huge fan of removing shields from the game, as I rely on rolling way more than blocking. I've already talked about it here, so check it out if you're interested. Shameless plug FTW!
  • Metal Gear Solid 5 - I'm a huge fan of the Metal Gear games, so of course I'm excited for 5. After playing Ground Zeroes I love the new updated gameply of the game. No awkward aiming down sights for me. The story looks just as stupid and over the top as before. I love it.
  • No Man's Sky - You guys, I am ridiculously excited for this. It sounds like the perfect game to me. Almost as though they're making it just for me. I love the thought of exploring an entire universe. I love the fact that there will be next to zero combat. Also that while you are playing in the same universe as others but you may never see them. Stuff like that makes me giddy.

That's about it. There is probably plenty of other games, but I just can't think of them.

So what is everyone else looking forward too? What are you guys playing at the minute?
