If you were to do a twitch stream I'd give it a watch. Most of the streams I watch are a bit slow anyway so it wouldn't bother me.

Started up Alien Isolation again on Nightmare difficulty (yeah, you die A LOT) & to give the DLC a spin - easily my highlight of last year, but then I am a huge fan of the films. Definitely recommended.

Picked up XCOM again on sale on pc, once again proves to be right up my street. Though I'm only a few hours in im not sure any game bar dark souls has nailed that feeling of being so close to controller throwing rage yet you hang on for one more go, endlessly. Everytime you think you are getting good at it, everytime you think things are going well something comes out of left field and wham, your best soldier is dead and the rest of the squad are panicked and high tailing it. But you know deep down that the game didn't cheat you, you just made a mistake by not watching the rooftop, or you dashed when you should of took it slowly. Then steadily your confidence returns. Then half your squad is dead again. Rinse and repeat.

Can't fault it, has to be a ten so far. But this is coming from a massive turn based fan who's favourite game of all time is Vandal Hearts. If you aren't big on slow paced games or are quick to call bullsh*t, Id probably take two or three off.

Did you get enemy within? Makes it brutaller and betterer.

Did indeed - my 'review' is based on that version. I'm yet to play the original boxed package so I'm not sure whether that would change my score - for me as I said it's the perfect 'I'm THIS close to head butting my screen but I can restrain myself' difficulty level. And that's on normal.

I haven't played it fully in a while, I remember being really happy that I sold all these guns I'd gotten from the exalt for around about $1500, and I bought everything and haven't been back in the fear that they're going to screw me over after being so kind.

Rayman Legends

Games with Gold's latest offering on the Xbox One is a colourful 2D platformer overflowing with character. Our limbless hero's repertoire is regular affair, with jumps, glides, swings and slides helping you past evil toads to save the teensies.
The plot is based around saving the teensies and catching the dark teensies, across several themed worlds. Each world shares more or less the same structure. You will complete a few standard levels in which you can save ten teensies, which includes two that are hidden away in secret puzzle rooms. As you catch up with the dark tennsies you will get thrown into "race" levels, where you must keep ahead of a pursuing doom, then "boss" levels, no prizes there. The boss fights are quite good, requiring concentration and pattern memorization to succeed. The highlight levels, however, are the closing missions of each world. These almost feel like a rhythm game, which is what makes them so fun, especially when you notice it's a Mexican Eye of the Tiger that you're playing to.
A small issue is that some levels are quite long, so after playing a few you can get a bit tired. Luckily there're other things to explore, like the daily and weekly challenge levels. These can reward you with more Lums, the effective currency/scoring system, which collecting lots of can unlock new heroes and hero skins. Yes, that's right, you're not limited to vanilla Rayman. There are some playable teensie characters, and Rayman's mate Globox. The other character is the barbarian princess, iterations of which are unlocked through completing special missions. Some of the skins are fun, with references to other Ubisoft titles. However all of the characters are essentially the same, there are no advantages gained by using different characters, which sort of seems like a missed opportunity.
There is a lot of value though, with the unlockable "back to origins" levels in addition to the main set.
As the levels progress, they slowly teach and refine the more advanced platforming techniques, and you get really dexterous after a while.

7 or so out of 10 I think.

The second one is equally as good too, in my onion. I would recommend both.
