Catching up on some DLC expansions for games I enjoyed, so played through the Frank Rising and Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini-Golf expansions for Dead Rising 4 (good scrappy fun and the mini-golf is surprisingly addictive) and the Operation Spearbreaker and Awakening The Nightmare packs for Halo Wars 2, which were excellent. Awakening The Nightmare in particular has probably my favourite Halo Wars missions actually, some really intense moments and the mission variety was great, each one had a different wrinkle to think about.

They're great! And I say that as someone who has never really clicked with the RTS genre, I've always been far too terrible at them but these were really accessible. That probably means that hardcore RTS folk might find them a bit shallow I guess, but they were pitched perfectly for me.

Raiden V on PS4.
It’s very good - I like shmups as long as they aren’t totally based on pattern recognition and memorisation and this is a fun arcadey shooter.
My criticisms would be that it’s quite hard to see what’s going on and enemies & bullets don’t always stand out well enough. It’s interesting because, though I like the game, it isn’t really any improvement over  (actually it isn’t really as good as) the 25 year old titles I play on my Megadrive.
HDMI and the convenience of playing on the big telly from my sofa add value though.

I, Cosh

The bendy purple laser from Raiden 2 is one of my all time favourites. Will need to give this a try.
