Trying to get into Dark Souls 3 once again, for the third time now, and again it's probably the least I've ever enjoyed a Souls game. The whole Road Of Sacrifices stretch is so boring and phoned-in. Abyss Watchers is a cool boss fight and then it's straight into the even more boring, by-the-numbers Catacombs segment. 

 

I just replayed Demon's Souls twice earlier this year and last year the first Dark Souls and they're both still incredible games. There's just something off with this one in my opinion.

On a whim, I fired up DC Universe Online and tried playing that again. I tried playing it a bunch of times in the past and never really could get into it, but I had a real superhero craving, so I started it back up again at the start of the holiday weekend, and I had a good enough time that I continued on throughout the weekend, falling into my rut of creating multiple characters and then going back and starting over again. I usually choose a Superman-esque type of character, but this time around I've started up a Batman-like character named Shroudmaker, and so far it's keeping my attention.

Doing the Fallen Ghosts Dlc in Ghost Recon Wildlands.. its been sitting around for a few years now..  The missions are significantly more challenging than the regular game but theyre better designed too.. looking at it now it is a pretty significant chunk of content…

It genuinely feels like one in six opponents in Tetris Effect is a fuckin prodigy at this shit lmao. How does anyone have the time to get so good at a video game, and if you do, why put it towards a video game?

 

Maybe you were up against Utada Hikaru

Maybe also Steve Weibie, Billy Mitchell or any of the twelve year old zoomers who keep killing me five minutes into Apex Legends rounds. 

 

Regardless I was thrilled w/ myself to keep up for ten or so minutes on lvl 10 starting speed and when the round was over the score was like 760,000+ vs 80,000.  :lol: 

It's not even the fact that it happens, but how often.  When it seems like all anyone wants to talk about is AAA stuff, recent indies or Nintendo sometimes it's surprising how popular and seriously-played a game like this still is.

I went through the process of installing retroarch on my Xbox Series X, and have been emulating GameCube games that I've never played.  I'm playing Eternal Darkness for the first time and am having a blast.  It's dated in some respects but the structure of the game is very compelling and it does some super clever stuff that I wasn't expecting.  I can see why it's so revered.

Finished a new game plus of CrossCode. Besides being overleveled, one of the options I selected greatly boosted the damage I did. Most of the frustration I experienced the first time through was avoided thanks to this. It was great that they didn't just make the option but made sure it fit. I was able to do all the quests (there were a couple that involved weakening enemies before stunning them but one hit kills prevent that, however party members don't get the damage boost so no quest was broken) and I loved how party members and some other characters made comments about the insane damage boost (especially the annoying character who keeps challenging you to duels, in the last duel in the DLC you're told that a way has been found to turn off the damage boost but when the duel starts he gets a call that it can't be disabled after all and he realizes he's about to get beat again). In the ending for the main game one character says to another while walking through an early area of the game that though the enemies are weak now they were tough when you first encountered them but the first party member says nope, the main character sniped them. Overall it was fun but I look forward to moving on to other games.

Spent a month restarting Skyrim characters but finally well on my way and almost ready to craft endgame equipment. Probably should stop and wait for Anniversary Edition but whatever. Also been playing Art of Rally to give me a Skyrim break from time to time. The pS showcase has made me want to fire up the PS5 but I haven’t yet. Maybe this week. Really trying to focus on a small number of games instead of spreading myself out to a whole bunch like I usually do.

Took me less time and effort to beat X2 than X1, especially the X-Hunter Stages. I died several times on the first stage with the moving walls that give you an instant death, but then I didn't die once on the other stages. Either I'm getting really good at Mega Man games, or X2 is easier than X1.

Horizon Zero Dawn, I initially thought I was an idiot for not liking this much the first time I played it, but now that I'm about halfway through (according to howlongtobeat) my interest is starting to wane.

Finished the Gears 5 campaign.  It was. . .fine. 

If it wasn't on Game Pass, I wouldn't have bothered; I think I'm over this franchise, and I just haven't enjoyed The Coalition's Gears games as much.  Hey, at least I finished it, I can't say the same for Gears 4.

I had those feelings as well - it’s a good game, but it didn’t feel amazing.

Tried out Subnautica earlier and ended up playing for hours. This game is really cool so far.

I had a lot of fun with this game, until I hit a wall. It was like I had a upgrade path that was progressing at a steady rate and then BOOM. I just hit this wall and suddenly it was taking forever to do anything. Not sure if I was just moving up too fast or was just missing something. I stopped playing shortly after that.
