Watch Dogs 2

Continuing to play a little God of War (after the sun goes down -- my family room is torn apart with no window coverings and I'm getting too much glare on my screen)

When on an AC kick after Odyssey was announced.  Finishing Origins story, then finished Unity, the started another play through of Black Flag.

 

I have since moved on to playing another play through of Mass Effect Andromeda. 

 

I'll probably hop between both this weekend.

I beat watch dogs 2 today. It was fine. Very generic Ubisoft. 

 

A small thing that bothers me in games like this - I spend months in this hacker group working to save the world, and never not once does a single member of the crew change their outfit. Why isn't this a thing for npcs in games? Especially in watch dogs, where they were trying so hard to lean on San Francisco style and hacker culture and being hip. Are they afraid players won't recognize them if they threw on a different t-shirt?

Everything I have played so far as been pretty generic.  (Not sure it has much in common with other Ubisoft games.)  I'm glad they got rid of the fake edginess from the first game (the random swearing and weird sex is gone).  I'm having fun -- but so far, don't understand why some people claimed it was a big improvement over the first game.

I also thought the story was generic but enjoyed controlling vehicles to run over guards, make cars chasing you crash into other vehicles and call in cops or gang members to eliminate enemies for you.

I didn't play the first one so I don't have that basis of comparison, but the a lot of the systems and controls and visuals just scream "this is an Ubisoft open world game." The only thing it was missing was climbing towers to reveal parts of the map :lol:

Well, Watch Dogs 2 has decided to become unplayable -- it is causing my computer to hard reset within 5 minutes of launching the game (after playing about 40% of the game).

 

Moving on to Wolfenstein 2 -- played the intro and first main mission last night.

I love the small QoL changes they made to Strange Journey Redux. Haven't gotten far yet though.

Man I remember playing this way back on the DS XL. What type of changes are we talking. I might double dip.

As mentioned I haven't gotten too far into the game and I stopped playing the original when I got Hama'd in the second sector with the DS version

 

Spoiler

Field Saving - You have one slot to save outside of the ship.  Supposedly you may encounter an encounter at a higher chance at the first spawn/reload

 

You don't spend Macca in the ship for healing.

 

Full voice-overs for important dialogue, which is nice but it's only in Japanese.  Odd hearing Gore as Old Man Jojo lol

 

So far most of the minor characters are given portraits in the game.

 

I'm forgetting a few, but keep in mind aside from not playing much of the original I have not played this game since 7 years ago.

If you liked past Metroid games then yes. It’s been great up to this point

Still playing Dragon Quest Builders and I'm really enjoying the game. Have any of you played it? I'm also playing Destiny 2 and Overwatch this weekend.

I have Dragon Quest Builders on the Switch.  Really good game, some of the dialog is great.

Finally beat Pokémon Quest!

 

I was determined to finish the game without spending anything, which led to it becoming a grind fest.  Took me 40 hours, but I think if it were not for a stupid mistake I made I could have done it in 35 hours. If I spent money so I had more than one cooking pot, I would think that would have saved another 5-10 hours of grinding. 

 

I enjoyed most of it, but now I have kicked Mewtwo's butt I have zero desire to complete the pokedex etc...  I AM DONE! 

 

Now to try and beat something else in my backlog, Maybe Steamworld Dig 2 or Dragon Quest Builders.

I bought Hollow Knight on Switch last night. Man, the atmosphere is incredible in this game. Beat the first boss and moved on to the next area, and I have to say I haven't been this immediately impressed in a game in a while.

Sonic Racing Transformed...   its functional, but it mostly serves to highlight how ahead of everyone else Mario Kart seems to be.. I doubt Sonic even bests Diddy Kong Racing

Well shit, someone told about Groove Coaster released on Steam and I instantly bought.  Holy shit I suck and I didn't know there was so many other factors into the mechanics.

 

 

Also like the arcade, the resolution runs on a weird 9:16 aspect, so unless you can change your monitor alignment vertically, you're going to have a bad time :lol:

State of Decay 2 and a little PUBG...  hopefully a little Ghost Recon Wildlands as well.  I'm at my parent's house and only have a couple of games with me. Can't wait to get back home to my full arsenal.

I'm probably the only one that plays FEH here, but if anyone's curious they just added more awakening characters to the roster, but most of them are meh.

 

 

What is impressive is this.
