Mega Man Battle Network for an upcoming video series. I totally don't have 6 more hours of chip grinding and 12 hours of footage to edit. Nope.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D. First time ever playing the game.

My feelings...
1) It is one of the funnest and most interesting Zelda games I've ever experienced. This was a far better experience for me than OoT, and honestly is only under WW in terms of being my favorite 3D Zelda thus far.
2) I doubt I'll want to play again for a long time. I played through the game pretty thoroughly, collected all the masks and heart pieces, and have had my fill of the game.
3) I shouldn't have so thoroughly completed the game, because the Fierce Deity's mask makes the final fight with Majora a really bad joke.

That's what I did when I first played this on the N64 many moons ago. I used a really nice little A3 sized guide that came with an issue of N64 magazine (here in the UK) that helped me more or less fully complete the game, heart pieces, masks and all.

Majora was certainly a push over for me back then too!

I still say that A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening are my favourites whereas Majora's Mask is tied with The Wind Waker as my favourite 3D Zelda game. I still haven't started the 3DS version yet, mostly because I like playing handheld games in autumn/winter.

I have recently completed The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Contrast and Batman: Arkham Knight.

Arkham Knight is personally the worse of all four Batman games (including the surprisingly underrated Origins) yet I still had a fairly good time with it. The bat mobile was a take-it-or-leave-it affair with me, seeing as I much prefer gliding/hookshooting around the city and the identity of the Arkham Knight himself ended up being a bit of an anti-climax. Not bad, but not as good as I hoped this would be,

Contrast is a bit of a marmite game; I liked it, and enough to play it for half an hour here and there every day since last Sunday. Unfortunately, I got hit by the well known 'lighthouse bug' whereby you cannot shine a spotlight onto the stage down below therefore locking you out of the ending, which is rather good timing given that the lighthouse is the last part of the game (!)

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is my favourite of the three and I am slightly apprehensive about saying too much and thus, giving the game away. It is about a young boy named Ethan who writes short stories and you are a detective going around finding out clues leading up to the conclusion of the game. It's a hard sell without spoiling the premises, but it is a thoroughly brilliant experience.

Not a bad choice of games there. Just feel a bit bitter about Contrast and its game breaking bug. Oh well.

I've now found the one Health Fruit I was missing, so I've 100% completed it now.

Tales of Graces f, for sure this time. A satisfying ending, I must say. A lot of the problems I've had before in the main game are still there in the Epilogue, but shuttling everywhere reduced the padding at least.

I never cared much for Link's Awakening, personally, even though it was one of my first Zelda games. I felt like the Oracle games were far more ambitious and entertaining. Definitely agree on A Link to the Past, though, which is definitely a masterpiece. How'd you feel about A Link Between Worlds?

I don't know. The lack of post-game content sans Riddler trophies was a bit disappointing, but I actually liked the Batmobile once I got to use it more optionally later in the game. The gameplay seemed like a definite improvement on Arkham City, a game I never much cared for. As to the plot, it was a bit predictable (honestly, was there any real mystery as to the identity of the Arkham Knight? He knows everything about Batman and has a gigantic grudge against him. HMMMMMMM), but it was still pretty solid and lacked the problems in previous Rocksteady games (Titan Joker in Asylum, which was the only scuff in that otherwise polished jewel, and the general lack of an interesting narrative in City).

The "story packs" are a complete joke, though.

So is Arkham Origins worth playing? I avoided it after finding out it wasn't developed by Rocksteady and was getting pretty universally panned as a mediocre Batman game.

@Ralizah: I avoided Arkham Origins because all versions except the Wii U one has an unpatched save data corruption bug but the Wii U doesn't have the story DLC.

@Ralizah: A Link Between Worlds was my own personal favourite game in 2013, mainly because it was my first 3DS game (I was ever so kindly gifted a 3DS for that Christmas) and I have so much love for A Link to the Past.

It was not only a big burst of nostalgia, the game managed to tell its own story and offer new gameplay devices such as the rental system and the clever 2D/3D mechanics in which some dungeon-related puzzles were a joy to solve.

Yeah, I really liked it! The ending is second only to Majora's Mask in terms of being my favourite too.

As for Arkham Origins, I rate it above both Arkham City and Knight purely because the story was very well told and has the best bosses in the series, something that Arkham Knight overwhelming failed with, with all of those cobra tank battles disguised as 'boss fights'.

The snowy environment in Origins is the nicest setting too and it goes surprisingly well with the contrast of Batman and his black cape and suit. As the game is a prequel, all of Batmans enemies are in their classic comic book outfits, and they all look great!

The reason why the game wasn't received quite as warmly as the two beforehand was because ultimately, the game did not offer anything new, gameplay wise, and it is a pretty short experience in comparison to the first two, although I see that more of as positive than a negative point myself.

Arkham Origns also came out in less than eighteen months after Arkham City - a hint of fatigue perhaps?

I'd give it a go if you are a fan of the series, but a word to the wise, leave it for another day. You probably do not wish to start Orgins quite so soon (after Arkham Knight).

Fairune (Android).

This game is way too good to be free. It's a full little RPG that has an overworld & 3 dungeons, and you must solve simple environmental puzzles using the items you collect along the way to make your way through.

You fight enemies simply by walking into them. If they're weaker than you, they won't do any damage to you, but won't reward EXP either when defeated. If around the same strength, you'll lose some HP upon defeating them, but gain some EXP in the process. If they're too strong, you'll lose a lot of HP, and can't hurt them. (if I'm not mistaken, a series called Ys has a similar system, but I haven't played it myself). The only time battle is handled differently is the final (and only) boss, where the game does a genre shift, and plays like a scrolling shmup.

The game has a pleasing retro sprite look, witch catchy chiptunes to match.

It's completely Free with no In-App-Purchases or Microtransactions, has very unintrusive ads (they never show up during gameplay. Just take up a small portion of the screen on the title page & game over page), and I completed it in just over 3 hours.

Well now I can say I finished one of the greatest games ever Knights of the Old Republic on Xbox.

I have to say it is one of the best games I have ever played. It matches the Star Wars mood perfect. The story was done really well and I enjoyed most of the characters.

In case you were wondering I went light side. I might go back to this game some time in the future to do the dark side path but for now it's onto Fable.

If you have never played this game I highly recommend it. You can get it on Xbox cheap and can be played on the 360. It's also available on Android (not sure if it's available on Apple).

@Tasuki what took you so long to play it! It's easily the best Star Wars game ever created.

Persist: A Tale of Redemption (Android). It's completely free, with no IAP's or even ads!

It's made by the same dev who made Tiny Dangerous Dungeons, and it's pretty clear it runs on the same engine (though this may be an earlier game, due to the shorter length, and I don't think the graphics are quite as polished, even though they're in color).

It's a platformer with 4 levels (the first 3 are split into 3 sections each, while the last one just has 1 section), and it's pretty unique because you actually lose an ability every level, meaning you have to rethink how you go about things in addition to the natural increase in level difficulty.

I beat it in about 15 minutes, but it's free with no hooks, so I highly recommend it if you have a mobile device to play it on.

@Tommy_Wiseau: I never owned an Xbox till about a month ago, that gen I had a Gamecube and PS2. I had it on computer and played it that way and got to the Jedi enclave and became a Jedi but then I upgrade my PC and the video card didn't want to work with it it just kept crashing the game. I have wanted to play it for years now but as I said had no way to play it. One of the reason I got the Xbox now was so I could finally finish this game.

Oh and as much as I liked KotOR I still liked Force Unleashed more.

Over the past/last week I've finished FE 8 (Both routes), FE 7+Hector, now I wanna get FE 6.
I've finished TLoZ: Minish Cap in the mean time in 2 days, then moved to LTTP and found it rather hard. I've stopped at the 7th crystal so I'll finish it eventually. But I've moved to the first Megaman and literally... Airman Ga Taosenai.

I'll finish Megaman before even touching another game.

Well I beat Rocket League on PS4, well the season mode and walked away with the Championship. I have to say it's a really fun game especially when you have other people to play with. Season mode is a little dull but what sports game season mode isnt? You play so many games and then if you have a good enough record you get to the playoffs and if you beat that it's the championship game. Still my son and I enjoyed this game alot.

Metroid Fusion. I beat it years ago, but I played it again because I got it on the virtual console a few days ago. It's really good. Zero Mission was my favorite Metroid game for a long time, but I might like Fusion more. Maybe I should play Zero Mission again.

Beat Xenoblade Chronicles 3D about a week ago.

My brothers played my copy of the Wii version before I sold it. They kept hyping up the ending, saying there was stuff "that'll make your brain explode". I liked it, and it was definitely surprising, but it wasn't THAT crazy.

Then again, after countless mystery novels, RPGs and VNs, no one reveal is shocking anymore.
