~20 hours into Watch Dogs Legion....  It's OK.  The mechanics are different from a lot of other open world games, but having a variety of characters to play as doesn't really add to my enjoyment.  I think the storytelling/gameplay/etc. would have been much better if they had stuck to one protagonist.  I'm mostly sticking to using two of the "Prestige" operatives -- Aiden Pearce and Wrench.

 

Early on, stealth really wasn't an option -- but as the tech tree has opened up, stealth has become the default mode for me.  I know everything has to be an RPG nowadays, but hiding the basics of gameplay behind upgrades really hurts the early impressions of this game.

 

But, as I am getting into the "meat" of the game -- I am starting to enjoy the mechanics.  It's probably a game I'd give a mid-to-high-70's score to.

Just finished Mass Effect 3 and that was a great ride. I cannot believe I never played the series when it first came out. Did this exact same thing with Dragon Age series and Fallout. 
 

I know time travel doesn’t exist because I kept playing those shitty sport games and shilling our 60 bucks for roster updates.

Finished RE: Village. Great game and definitely one of the better games I’ve played this year. Now I need to wrap up the last few chapters of FF7:R. Ridiculously, I was out walking my daughter and decided to play Pokemon Go for the first time. I love a good walk, so this might liven up our route a bit.

I thought I was done with COD:Warzone, but I keep getting sucked back in. >.<

 

Skyward Sword - I've made it through the third dungeon, and after a classic bit of "backtrack and do a bunch of random shit" I've made it to a new area (yay) that looks like it'll involve a lot of swimming (boo)

 

EDIT: damn, Skyward Sword, really?

Spoiler

Gonna send me back through a dungeon, already?

At least is was fast.

I've been having a lot of fun with Spelunky but not really getting anywhere with it so I think I'm gonna give up on it for now. I can't unlock the second shortcut because of a specific requirement. Game is insanely hard, goddamn. 

 

Also, on the last level of Dishonored 2. What a great, great game. I do wish I had played it on a higher difficulty though, it's too easy on Normal.

Daughter in nursery from 9-3pm, wife working and all I need to do is tidy up, sweep up some DIY stuff and water our allotment so I really should play something, either FF7 or I might just play some old games and dosa about in our room.

Ever since getting my digital projector Psychonauts is taking up most of my gaming time. It's such a blast on all levels - visual, narative, gameplay, etc - and feels like the most fully realized DF game to date.

Been playing FFXII on PS5, Story of Seasons: PoOT on Switch ( i need to start Skyward Sword) and FFXIV and FF1 on PC. I'm going to play FF2 and 3 on PC, and 5 when it comes out, as i never finished those.

 

 

Speaking of Story of Seasons and Switch games, looks like Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town coming to PC. Another one bites the dust. Hope @Xbob42 didn't pick this one up.

 

 

 

@ManUtdRedDevils playing this on his deck 100%

Still steadily making my way through Skyward Sword. It’s funny to use some of these items and think “yeah, this definitely wasn’t designed to be used with a regular controller” but then realize that flailing around with a Wiimote wouldn’t make it better

I will eventually go back to it. The motion controls and the camera issue really put a sour taste in my mouth. You're a soldier for keeping at it.

Great game. Played it at launch and little while after. Addicting and fun. Gunplay imo is the best ever. I know you're a veteran with the cod games so maybe you have a different opinion. 

Nope I agree. That is why I returned to it. Bungie does FPS very well.

I never even tried the motion controls. Using the pro controller is fine. The camera is unfortunate, but honestly it hasn't been an issue after the first couple hours (my latest save says 14 hours). I have minor gripes, but overall I'm enjoying it a lot. I wouldn't say I'm soldiering through it or anything like that.

I tried motion and it was a joke. Like you,  after a few hours I got used to the controls. I'll eventually go back to beat this game. It read 10+ hours for me and I was having a good time. Ghost of Tsushima grabbed my attention away from Zelda lol.

Getting through the Shinra tower is very, very dull. (Except for the meteor bit which was cracking).

 

I need to finish this game but they aren’t making it easy.

 

Also just having a look at my PS+ library and downloaded Sonic Mania and Nioh to consider at some point.

I remember quitting soon after Beyond Light was released (even though I bought the expansion) just because it felt so underwhelming. I know a LOT of people got pissed at the game right about at that point and left as well. But your post makes me wonder if it turned around and got better (making it worth firing it up again). I quit right about the time they started removing TONS of content that I had paid for, and like a lot of other people, I was really annoyed at the time. Has the game improved since then?

Ive been in a rut of buying a game, play for a little while, never finish or get back to it. Because of that, ive been on a gaming hiatus for the last few months…

 

however, I jumped back into Outriders and finally finished the campaign and all the side missions. Im now in the endgame grind of expeditions, not sure I have it in me to grind out the 40K pods to actually complete the final FINAL mission - but I have to say I really enjoyed this game. Its a shame it didnt get more praise or attention, which is apparent bc its tough to find matches to jump into.  
 

I think Ill jump back into Ratchet and Clank after this bc I was absolutely having a blast with that game and then…just stopped.
