  1. I started playing Diablo III: Eternal Collection, and I’m really enjoying it. Now I’m looking forward to Diablo II: Resurrected in September.
  2. I finished Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, it took me roughly 100 hours primarily doing the main story quests and Wrath of the Druids expansion content. I did very little optional side stuff other than raids since the majority of it felt like filler to me. While I enjoyed the story and characters for the most part, the core gameplay loop was repetitive and I basically had to force myself to finish it near the end since I grew tired of it. This was not the case with Odyssey which I enjoyed more overall, I preferred its colorful ancient Greece setting and gameplay/combat. And as much as I
  3. I agree. I’m finally near the end of Valhalla after 80+ hours, and it has felt somewhat like a slog a lot of the time. I was never bored in Odyssey, I blew through 100+ hours of it always having a good time. It was just fun to pick up and play. But Valhalla feels like a step back in terms of combat/gameplay, and is extremely story heavy. It offers a good story and cast of characters, but it just keeps going and going. I got the Wrath of the Druids expansion, and while it has been good so far it’s basically just more of the same dragging the game on for even longer. I want to finish
  4. It’s the second best IMO, I really like it. But it’s a little dry when it comes to story and characters which is part of why I put it below Far Cry 3.
  5. Far Cry 3 is the best in the series IMO, the story, characters and stuff that happens in it are totally batshit crazy and I love it. Far Cry 4 felt like more of the same, but a step back/toned down in many ways. While I still liked it, it wasn’t quite as entertaining as Far Cry 3 IMO. As for Far Cry 5 I wouldn’t say that it’s not good as it has some redeeming factors, but it’s definitely not great either IMO. Taking place in rural America, and playing as a silent protagonist didn’t really appeal to me. And the story is farfetched even for a Far Cry game. But as a pure open world FPS sandbox ga
  6. Yeah, I’m sorry to be letting a lot of you down with this one. I realize that many of you like my impressions, opinions and reviews of lower budget, mid-tier, Eurojank games since they’re my specialty. I really was planning on buying Biomutant on day one, but I finished Assassin’s Creed Odyssey somewhat recently and then jumped straight into Valhalla afterwards which I’m at the end of now but still have the Wrath of the Druids expansion to play. After I finish it I want to take a break from big open world games for a while, so I’m going to wait to get Biomutant when it’s cheaper.
  7. I can’t recall when I’ve seen such mixed opinions of a game, scores from 9s to 4s. Seriously, WTF? Based on what I’ve seen of Biomutant, a score less than a 6 seems unrealistic to me. Of course I could be wrong, but games that deserve scores of 5 or lower are usually complete crap which Biomutant doesn’t appear to be. It looks like a 7-8 game to me which is what a lot of critics have been giving it. After just playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Valhalla I currently have open world game fatigue which is one of the reasons why I won’t be buying Biomutant right now, but
  8. I’m currently playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and nearing the end of the main storyline, so I bought the Wrath of the Druids expansion so that I could play it now since once I finish the game I probably won’t want to come back to it since I have so many other games to play. When would be the best time to play Wrath of the Druids IYO, before or after finishing the main storyline? I’m 51, single and don’t have kids. That’s the upside, but the downside is that I had to retire early because I have DKA so I’m fatigued and weak a lot of the time these days. I don’t have the stamina
  9. I’ve had this game sitting in my backlog for a while now, it was developed by Piranha Bytes who made the Gothic and Risen games which I like so I expect to like it as well. But it’s a little surprising that an RPG that came out in 2017 doesn’t offer the option to choose your character’s gender, or customize their look. The Technomancer (2016) didn’t allow you to choose your character’s gender either, so you were forced to play as a generic dude that I didn’t like and I quit playing it for that reason despite the game being decent. I might have the same problem with Elex as well, because I don’
  10. I remember the time well as I was in my mid to late 20s, and was a music critic primarily for “alternative” music. It wasn’t called techno metal, it was considered more industrial rock. The trend seem to really start with Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson becoming somewhat popular, and more rock bands incorporating electro/industrial elements into their sound started gaining popularity such as Filter, Godhead, Gravity Kills, Orgy, Powerman 5000, Stabbing Westward, Uranium 235, Videodrone, etc. There were other industrial bands incorporating rock and metal into their sound at the t
  11. Wrath of the Druids sounds great, I’m going to buy it despite feeling that $25 is a bit steep for expansion content for a game that I paid $30 for. But the content seems to be really good/lengthy, so I should find it to be worth it. It came out at a good time since I’m currently playing Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
  12. Yeah, usually more for the allies than the enemies though. The AI is especially poor for characters that have to follow you, or that you have to follow. They’re close to broken at times. I’m retired, and spend a lot of my time gaming. I’m not sure that you’ll be able to finish it by Friday because there’s still several story quests to do at the 60 hour mark, and they’re long. I’m really interested in Resident Evil VIII, but I’m going to wait to get it because I haven’t played VII yet.
  13. Yes, I’ve played it for about 60 hours now and I’m really enjoying it. I’m primarily focusing on the main story quests since a lot of the optional side activities/collectables don’t really interest me all that much, and feel kind of like filler to me. I like doing the settlement character quests, contracts and raids, though. The story has been really good, it’s dark and violent. And Eivor is a likable character. But the combat somewhat seems like a step back compared to Odyssey’s. It’s a little more limited, and doesn’t offer as good of special abilities. It’s still pretty good, bu
