Gamertroll's Gaming Diary 5th Feb. XB1X and PS4 Today!

XB1X: Gears of War 4 
Gears Gears Gears, my daily fix. Pinched a blood-soaked Quad kill in a King of the Hill match on Foundation and hung my Elite controller up for the night. Job done! Did I say buy Gears 4? I am not attempting to force anyone here, consider it more a blatant act of coercion!

Off to another bloodbath

PS4: Gran Turismo Sport
Plumbed next for a bit of car love. Not as much of a fan of this one as I am of Forza Horizon 3, but it has received a wealth of new cars, tracks and campaign races to fix the rather barren menus at launch. It is a beautiful game, its care for the subject matter elevates it above the norm and nearest rival Forza Motorsport 7, in my view.
These Photo Juxtapositions are fine addition to the GT series, you can create your own!

Anyhew, after goggling awhile at the cars in the menus, I decided to get some more of the boring driving school tasks behind me. I soon remembered that it was a fool’s errand, with the game spending more time loading between trials than I was spending actually driving. Grabbed a few golds and switched it off, making a mental note to make sure the PSVR was plugged in next time I fire it up. GT Sport’s VR arcade mode and car viewer is Ok.

AArggh, So many.


XB1X: Tales From The Borderlands
Picking up where we left off, my wife and I played Season 1 episode 2. These Telltale games are much of a muchness, in that they are all terrifically well written and always do their source material justice. The interactive nature is limited, but the player has a decisive hand in what happens in these interactive TV boxsets. How do you play them as a couple? I handle the quicktime events, but only choose a dialogue option at the last moment if my wife hasn’t called one out. As it turns out, Telltale games are nothing like road maps and are actually an enjoyable participation event for man and wife! In summation, Tales from the Borderlands is just as much fun as The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. And far better than the Back to the Future one they did, not sure why that game burnt such a streaky skidmark from their stable.

In my defence, I had much better screengrabs but they corrupted. So suck it.
