Gaming Shelf – It’s a me Mario!














This is my gaming shelf, I had lots of Nintendo points to use up so went & ordered one of these Mario gaming rack. It's designed for 3DS/DS games but I use it for the PS4.

Nintendo love Sony and vice versa so it's ok.

What is on it at the moment then?

Ok list time!

Dragon Quest Builders
Fifa 16
The Division
The Last of Us
Lego Star Wars
Overwatch
Bioshock Collection
Lego Harry Potter
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Mafia 3
XCom2 (with Abbas at the moment)

You can't fit that many games on it! True you can only get around 8 so the titles in red are on the shelf with the others in a cupboard.

I completed Dragon Quest Builders at the weekend & just ordered Rise of the Tomb Raider today so will start that when it arrives. Loved the first game in the reboot series & was pissed off that it was an XB1 exclusive for a year.

Final Fantasy XI has been released but I am going to wait for a few months for patches to fix issues I am reading about camera control & combat gameplay. Hopefully it will by the drop to my impulse purchase price of below £25

World of Final Fantasy is also on my shopping list, also I may be buying No Man's Sky again, Hello Games have released an update which brings new features like base building & survival mode.

The not so weekly update – Still playing



I'm still playing Dragon Quest Builders, just completed Chapter 2. The final boss destroyed part of my original town so I rebuilt it into a wooden castle.

Completed Everybody's gone to the rapture, did not like it. 3 hours walking simulator which they could have made a 90min movie & I would have enjoyed it more.

iOS nothing new just the usual. Got to Arena 8 in Clash Royale now, it's tough but I'm still doing ok with my Giant, Dragon, Prince & Hog Rider deck.




Weekly Update – Dragon Quest Builders



Started Dragon Quest Builders this week, it's a J-RPG heavily influenced by Minecraft, mining for resources & then building from those or crafting them into new items. The quest like structure gives the game a purpose & keeps you moving forward to ultimately battle the evil dragon lord.

I completed Deus Ex Mankind Divided which ends with a to be continued plot line so I fully expect to see another game next year using the same engine. I enjoyed visiting some of the locations especially the Complex, did not really try out much of the new skills apart from remote hacking which was very useful. Don't have the time for a New Game+ playthrough so it's completed.

On No Man's Sky I completed the Atlas Path which rewards you with nothing noteworthy & decided to just watch a YouTube video on the journey to the centre. I feel a bit let down by Hello Games on their lack of communication on what they plan to do with the game if anything so for now I am done.

On iOS I started playing a new game called Oz Broken Kingdom on the ipad it takes the Wizard of Oz story and adds a new twist to it with turn based battles & character upgrades. It has a campaign mode & arena battles with the various obvious upgrades & time based unlock features you expect from most free 2 play games. So far I have not hit any paywalls.

I managed to get a legendary Sparky card on Clash Royale from a free chest !

It's very good you need to let it charge up but it does some serious damage when it attacks.

Next need to save up another 8000 coins to upgrade my bomber to level 10 & then focus on the giant.



Not buying anymore PS4 games on release this year (famous last words) will enjoy Dragon Quest Builders, X-Com 2 (which Abbas has taken with him for now) & the many digital games I own like Telltale Borderlands & the others I can't remember.

No PMG this week but I do really need to get back to playing some Lego Star Wars & Destiny.

Weekly Update – 350 Light



Not had much time for gaming the last week so only really managed to play some Destiny with Hakk trying to get to that 350 light target.

Currently I am on 341 light with 350 Gauntlets, Chest, Boots & Artifact. I don't have any 350 weapons with 340 being my max on Primary & Heavy weapon. We tried to get to the top of Felwinter Peak to collect a Siva Cluster, I gave up after a few attempts but Harry carried on & finally managed it. I will need to ask him for directions so I can collect that cluster.



Not had time to return Deus Ex, No Mans Sky or Lego Star Wars Force Awakens. I did try the demo for Dragon Quest Builders which is Minecraft Jap RPG style & it's not bad. The third person camera is a bit fiddly when placing blocks but not a hindrance. I won't buy it at the moment because I have XCOM 2 coming soon & need to finish what I own before buying anymore but it is on the shopping list.

On iOS, Pokemon Go I am now level 22 after using a lucky egg. I'm taking a break from the game for a while now because it's become a bit of a grind. Clash Royale I seem to have gotten the hang of Arena 7 now with 2143 trophies & now slowly getting enough cards to upgrade my commons to level 10 & rares to level 7.

I finished last in the Carcassonne league & got relegated. Blocking is a tactic I need to ensure I use again because I'm always on the receiving end.

Plan for the next week some more Destiny, back to No Mans Sky & Deus EX.
