    Played Deathloop for a bit yesterday. It looks gorgeous but I have found that I have actually gotten worse at FPS games. I died so many times just in the first bit that it sapped any will to play it for as long as I figure you need to.

    Doesn't help I was spoiled on the ending.

    If you have the funds, I HIGHLY recommend getting a Steam Deck. Probably the best "console" I've ever owned.

    It's fun to tinker with, it's great to play on, and the performance is really good. I'm honestly blown away about how much I've enjoyed it.

    I was carefully spacing my funds so I could buy one in the Q422 window that I was given so when I got the email in Q2 I was a little strapped for cash and couldn't swing it. I decided to wait for the first revision.

    if you've played any Tunic and thought "holy shit how am I supposed to figure some of these puzzles out" then this might help understand how lunatic they are.

    Just finished a 3v3 Heroes of Might and Magic 3 session. It's still awesome over 20 years later, yup.

    RimWorld.

    It's probably the best game that I've ever played over decades of gaming. It's also, without doubt, one of the darkest games I've ever played. Do NOT be fooled by the graphics.

    I don't recommend games lightly - the dev, Tynan Sylvester, is a bonafide genius.

    Finally sat down, two years later, and finished Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Fantastic. Now doing all sidequests and fetching. Will play the expansion too.

    WAS excited for The Callisto Protocol for Series X but it's $70 so fuck that. TO wait for a sale.

    Finished Blasphemous. I didn't understand a lick of it but the artwork, music, and gameplay were cool!

    I got to the end of Blasphemous and started one of the DLC things and realized...I'm not playing that game a second time. Especially with a ridiculous requirement that is one of 3 which means three more times. So I read some lore, thought about how weird the whole thing was, and uninstalled it.

    Finally getting around to Horizon II: Forbidden West, and while the visuals are impressive, unfortunately the game is more of the same from the previous installment that I absolutely loved. I am still really enjoying the world and cutting down huge dinos, but after about 2 hours or so, I'm burned out and lose interest very quickly. I'll still wind up platting it, but wish it was developed purely for the PS5.

    toggling back and forth between Streets of Rage IV and Final Fantasy 14. Tons of stuff to pick from what I'm gonna play next though. I've got Like a Dragon, Nioh 2, Horizon pt 1, Last of Us for PS5 (still never finished it in any iteration), Ghost of Tsushima, Elden Ring... I wanted to pick up God of War Ragnarok, but I've got so much other stuff to actually get through that I've already bought, I can't justify spending 70 bucks on God of War, no matter how much I wanna play it.

    Though I'm also really liking the Atari 50th Anniversary collection. It's more than just another game compilation. It's got over a hundred retro Atari titles on it, along with this collection of videos and interviews and collectible stuff

    Smart move. I'm too old to do that as well.

    I played this right after Elden Ring and it was a huge mistake. I was bored very quickly, and I did not care about the world at all. It was really disappointing since I loved Horizon 1 so much. Also, the amount of dialog was ridiculous, but maybe that was because I was coming from ER which barely had any.

    I played Crash Bandicoot 4 right after Elden Ring, and DAMN, it took a long time to adjust to it.

    And you're not wrong about the dialog. I do appreciate the added options, and the NPC's movements are some of the better ones ever released to date, but I wish it held more weight, like certain decisions affecting future happenings in the game.

    One problem Horizon 1 had in my opinion was the huge, lush world felt completely empty, and this also suffers. The back and fourth with Sylens starts to become a bickering contest, and you are reminded over and over again how stupid you are compared to him. Also, reading that HADES, this incredibly smart, world ending AI is able to be tortured (LUL) by Sylens showing it bunny rabbits and grassy fields. The writing is absolutely awful at times.

    It is just more of the same, and I wish they brought some new stuff to the table. Still enjoyable when you wanna just turn your brain off.

    I was on the screen to buy it and I just couldn't bring myself to spend that much money on it, or even any other game for that matter. I usually just wait a few months until deals pop up. I have so many games in my backlog I have been getting to, I don't mind waiting.

    @Self.Destructive.Pattern yeah, if it was an online thing that would be different, but it's single player, which means at the very least physical copies will become easy to find for cheap soon enough, and I can wait. I already have other stuff I want to dive into just as much that I've already bought.

    I bought Last Of Us Part 1 (PS5) from Gamefly for 35 bucks, so I'm going to try to play that over Christmas time before the show comes on in mid-January.

    If you are planning on playing The Callisto Protocol, play it on PS5. It is currently the best and most consistent way to play atm.

    Xbox version is reported to have performance issues, and the PC version is almost unplayable for many. Wait on patches if you don't own a PS5. A streamer I follow was playing it last night and crashed on him so many times, he gave up.
