Going back into RDR2, putting Mafia Definitive Edition on hold until a patch is released it's buggy. Started a new game in RDR2 going to do things a lot differently, I kinda rushed through my first playthrough missed out on a lot of things considering the game is massive.

Tried Yakuza Kiwami as my first Yakuza game and bounced off it after about two hours. I'd be into an uninterrupted Final Fight style game with those fighting mechanics but the rest did nothing for me.

 

Bought Ion Fury on Steam and played that for maybe two hours tonight. I'm playing on Normal and the game seems really fucking hard, or more specifically the enemy reaction time is insanely quick

Hey man I just started the Fist of The North Star game that is basically Yakuza with a FOTNS skin on it. That might be more up your alley... especially if you know the Manga/Anime.

Is it more of a straight forward brawler structurally? That'd be cool. 

 

I did see the anime flick AGES ago when it was going around on dubbed VHS tapes as 'super gory cartoon dude!!!!'.

It’s a brawler with some RPG elements... and all of the over the top gore of the cartoon. I did the prologue and that’s it. Stoped playing as Chapter one started. A lot of cut scenes and the game seems to be following the anime pretty closely in terms of story. Unlocking new moves seems pretty cool too. I’d check it out if I were you.

Last of Us 2.  Jesus, just when I think things are about to wrap up, something else happens.  

 

EDIT:  Finally freaking finished it.  I liked it well enough.  That Santa Barbara portion seemed kind of tacked on.  Should have wrapped it up when Ellie and Abby fought in the theater.

More Tony Hawks...weirdly after using the D-Pad for most of the first game and being...OK, I tried using the analogue stick and was so much more fluid with the game. I used to play THPS on the GC with the analogue stick and it feels like I’ve rediscovered an old friend now I feel better at the game.

So Bloodstained wasn’t great on Switch. Input lag was too much even for me. Sucks, since I really wanted to play it on that system. I guess it’s playable, but the lag does bother me and I have a better option. 
 

Luckily, the husband has it on Steam, so I’m just going to play it on PC. It’s buttery smooth.

Beat the super boss in Romancing Saga 3, trying to learn some more skills before starting the end game.

 

Curious, what are your thoughts on the game itself?

Overall I like it but it's sometimes annoyingly unbalanced. There are a lot of recruitable characters but not much incentive to use most of them and you tend to need to grind to get them to a level where they're useful. Some of those characters can be a pain to get rid of since it won't let you kick them out of your party to make room for somebody else. I kicked one character out planning to get him back later only to discover that because I hadn't beaten a certain boss before closing a gate that I couldn't go back to where he was to recruit him anymore. A lot of stuff is obscure even with the help of the internet. For example for the skills I'm trying to learn, for the attack ones I have to use SP cost to match remaster skill names against fan translation names to figure out which skills to use to unlock more and for the defensive ones I haven't been able to find a list (doesn't help that while some of the skill have the same name as the skill they guard against others don't).  So despite its flaws I think it's a really good 16 bit era JRPG.

 

I plan to play at least one more time through after I finish but I don't know if I'll be willing to finish it 8 times to play through each main character's story. Romancing Saga 2 was simpler but requires a ton of patience to play (on an initial playthrough, on a new game plus with good gear and skills it's much more enjoyable) but Romancing Saga 3 is more interesting and being able to restore LP at inns makes it much more enjoyable.

Finished the 10000 gamer score to rewards points thing. That was exhausting, I don't know how people play games they don't like just for achievements. But now I'm in between games and not sure what I want to play. I downloaded AC Odyssey since I figure Valhalla will be a primary next gen launch game for me, but I doubt I can finish in time if it's 100+ hours. 

 

Looking to fill a FPS itch too but not sure what. I keep hearing good things about Dying Light but I'd have to buy it. Which isn't a problem but Games Pass makes me cheap.

I’ve been playing my DS in and off for the last few days. I have quite a few games I’ve not touched but might be suffering with too many games to realistically ever play. For the time being, I’m going to stick with Spirit Tracks, Picross 3D and then later on get back to Mario and Luigi and Ace Attorney.

I'm about to beat Ion Fury and while it started a bit slow, it's actually kind of unique in that it goes for the Duke 3D style level design as well and does a great job at it. It gets really good and I love those sprawling key-card-based levels you just don't see anymore in FPS.

 

Not sure if you're into that style but if so, it's the 'retro' FPS to get.

The death of the Tojo Clan’s Third Chairman has plunged the organization into chaos. The violence spreads to the streets, and only Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima can put an end to the bloodshed!

Weeeelllll...that's an actual Streets of Rage 2 re-skin. Not sure if it's marketed as such in there somewhere but I've seen those levels before.

Started Assassins Creed Odyssey, might go back to Origins too since I haven't finished it. My FPS itch lead me the first Borderlands for some reason. Maybe I should try to get into Destiny 2 again.

Finished my second playthrough of Romancing Saga 3. 6 more main characters to go. Second time took much less time and I should be set for the remaining times. Unfortunately max HP doesn't carry over in a new game plus so I can't just breeze through the game but with the stuff that does carry over I should still do well.
