Play Want Bin Expense: 2017-06-12

E3 to be whatever I
Whatever I choose
And I’ll sing the blues if I want


Oh, E3 started? Or rather, the Pre-E3 stuff did. PrE3. Or something. Only seen Ubisoft and Microsoft presentations so far and… meh.


Lego City Undercover (Switch)
Much as I love this game, I think I’m going to have to stop playing. For some reason, even though it was relatively bug-free when playing two player story mode, now we’re “free roaming” it crashes every ten minutes. And that’s not even an exaggeration – the game will lock up 5 or 6 times an hour, requiring a restart. It’s becoming unbearable and incredibly frustrating. It seems the main trigger is using the scanner, but it isn’t exclusive to that. Shame.

Unravel (PS4)
Unravel was very cheap many months ago, and I bought it then. I played the first level, enjoyed it, then didn’t touch it for no specific reason. I started playing it again this weekend and it is very lovely indeed. I think I’ve two levels left, although I’m hoping there are a few more because I don’t really want it to finish just yet!

Grand Theft Auto V (PS4)
Somewhat late to the party, especially since I bought it ages ago, I started GTAV now Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is out of the way. Wow is there a lot of swearing. Like, a lot. I know it’s GTA and all but good grief. And the N word in every sentence. It doesn’t bother me, but it was still a shock. Anyway, the game itself is fun. Or would be, if I played the game itself. Instead, I’m Taking Bikes Where Bikes Don’t Go (a perennial GTA favourite), Driving On The Train Tracks, and Stealing Tractors. The GTA Playground is excellent. Story? Yeah, I’ll do that eventually. Once I’ve photographed all the toilets.


Nothing at E3 thus far has tempted me. In fact, the footage from Assassin’s Creed Origins has actually put me off a bit. So I’m still here with Sonic Mania (Switch) and Golf Story (Switch). Oh, and Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 (Switch) because it looks incredible.


Much of E3’s output so far. Am I getting old, or are games homogenising in to something generic and dull? They all look the same.

And my hands, of course.

  1. I thought it was just me. I can’t muster the tiniest crumb of enthusiasm for E3 at all. It might as well be a boat show, for all that I’m interested. Maybe it’s because my main gaming platform these days is Steam-on-Linux, where pickings (although they’d have been literally unbelievable five years ago) are still pretty thin, but yeah… meh.
