The 2Ps #1 (Playing and Pick ups)

A new monthly feature on my blog starting this month is something I’m calling the 2Ps: Playing and Pick ups. This is what December is looking like.

Pick ups

I’ve finally pulled the trigger on Otaku games’ 6 port RGB scart switch; I couldn’t really find any reviews except for a comment on the shmups forum and this was largely positive. The only snag is that the casing around the ports won’t accommodate the Wii Scart head. This will have to be swapped out.

Despite already owning the digital version of the game, I picked up a limited edition, physical copy of one of my favourite games in the past few years, Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition.

Playing

I’m still making my way through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Wii U and enjoying it mostly, although the boss fights have been a little disappointing. With all the Divine Beasts freed, I’m going to clear a few of the side missions before I make my way to Hyrule Castle.

On the Wii, I’ve resumed my playthrough of Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth. With two stages to go this, the most recent entry in the traditional Castlevania series (released back in 2009), is getting kind of tough. After battling through stage 5, I’ve finally reached the Count, who’s final form is proving problematic.

The final game I’ve been playing this month is Steamworld Dig 2 (PS4), the sequel to the original that I was playing this time last on 3DS. It’s a very polished title, that builds upon the core foundations of its predecessor. I’m really enjoying my time with it.

This is very likely my final post of the year as Christmas family duties have started to ramp up, so wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
