    Does Borderlands get more fun?

    only if you’re playing online with people you know... otherwise those games are bullshit imo. With friends it can be a good time, especially in this quarantine reality where we don’t get to see each other much

    OK so i'm 50 hours in Persona 5 Royal...and i know i said Ghost of Tsushima is my Game of the Year...but Persona might nick that, i bloody ADORE this game! It's the most perfect anime game i've played, as someone that draws alot this whole experience is just so visually striking, and the writing is so SO good.

    As an example, i'm 50 hours in and have been trying to do everything with all my favorite characters, and having spent 5 hours beating Futaba's palace i got out and triggered one of Ann's events, which lead to a chance to enter a relationship with her...and i didn't mean to. Now thats not to say i didn't want to, i just haven't met all the romanceable characters and want to know them before i commit (you can't break up after and i don't wanna cheat...this is how much the writing has me!) so i reset my save...to BEFORE Futaba's palace, and my instant reaction was "cool now i can redo some of my persona's and focus on other characters to build with"...that's how good the game is to me! I'm probably going to New Game + for other character romances too.

    Bought and have played Borderlands 3 and can very much vouch they're difficult, boring and tedious playing solo. I never played one solo until Borderlands 3 but I'm at a boss I can't beat unless I leave and over level myself. Sucks.

    I've played all the Borderlands games almost entirely solo and I love them all. Once you get some good gear for your build you start wrecking face.

    What boss are you stuck on? I might be able to offer some tips. A couple of the bosses are a huge pain solo on the first playthrough.

    Just beat Doom Eternal yesterday. loved it! as stated in the Doom thread, hadnt played a FPS since the early days of PS3. had barely played Doom 2016 on the Switch but gave up on it. saw it was on sale in the PS4 summer sale, so picked up Doom 2016 and currently playing that now. very different gameplay wise from Eternal in some senses.

    so the question is...where do I go after Doom? Wolfenstein 2? Do I finally start playing the Call of Duty games? I don't play online

    Oh, yep, that's my least favorite boss fight in the game. Get a good shock and corrosive weapon and go to town. If you're on PS4 I can lend a hand sometime if you just want to get past that point in the game.


    Think I'm gonna start Mad Max today. Got it free from PS Plus awhile ago and I've heard good things about it.

    Isn't that the one boss which you can cheese in the pipe section up-top? It might take a few attempts to get the positioning right to avoid the AOE/splash damage.

    Could be, I haven't farmed him at all.

    Ive been trying to play Pathfinder on Xbox, since i'm an old school table topper, and the instability is driving me crazy. Hoping for a patch soon.

    Finally finished the Ghost of Tsushima story missions. 100% Now I need to back back and do ally missions, side stories, etc. I doubt I'll bother with platinum. So much more to play in back catalog.

    I'm playing the new Avengers game and I really wanted to like this game. Iron Man's controls are terrible and the game controls in all are the opposite of intutive, the save system doesn't work, Deluxe Edition codes are having issues, the bad guys are sponges, microtransactions seem to be the only way to change your outfits. I really dislike the game so far, hopefully it will change but after 6 hours in I can't recommend this game. I feel im usually pretty fair when it comes to accepting new games but this game has me raging for all the wrong reasons, I want to SMASH my controller. Ryan SMASH

    The beta was boring as fuck, it's a cash cow game milking the franchise name to death, it had clunky controls and felt like a shitty mid 2000's movie tie in game that had no movie tied to it. That's my opinion, then there's this guy. I always trust Jim Sterling. A fat man doesn't lie.

    I’m playing Dragon Quest 6 and it’s been great... just mindless retro rpg escapism. There’s something magical when you fall into the hypnotic pattern of these games, and 6 is not the best, but it’s still something so unique (even if it’s the same formula)

    lol I agree with everything he said. Also, the game took me 10 hours to beat. Paid 80 dollars for the deluxe edition that the code didn't even work and no steel case.About to sell it on eBay

    Playing Mortal Shell- pretty cool game so far but the game for sure feels like an indie game

    Yea... They need to send out a patch for the items to pop up if the obvious troubleshooting doesn't work. But what the fuck with the steel book? I also purchased the deluxe from best buy and when I went to pick it up, I was handed a simple ps4 case and was instantly confused. Checked my order closer to reveal it was being shipped separately so depending on where you purchased, you may still be getting it; mine just shipped today but I would really like to know what that was all about.

    About the game, I am actually enjoying it a lot so far. Visuals are good, game play is monotonous, but fun and the story I really like so far.

    Fuck, this game is so freaking divisive though.

    I got a Switch last Christmas.


    I’ve been playing it quite a bit.


    The first games I got were Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, and Super Mario Odyssey.


    With Ultimate Alliance 3, I gotta admit I was a little disappointed. Confusing controls; no real connection to the powers. I still play it a little, but mostly for a Marvel fix.


    Super Mario Odyssey, on the other hand, is one of the best games I’ve ever played, and I’ve been playing games since Pong (my uncle had it). The only thing is I wish I didn’t have to use the game card for it. I would play it more if it was there all the time.


    I downloaded Doom 2016. That’s how I learned that I needed a microSD card.


    Anyway, I have downloaded a few games, and I have been enjoying playing.


    I love Mario Kart, play a lot of Octopath Traveler, some Astral Chain. Some Mario Tennis.


    I got Hollow Knight, haven’t played it a whole bunch though.


    Recently downloaded Breath of the Wild. I have it and beat it on the Wii U, but about a week ago I found myself jonesing to play it, and I did not want to play it on the Wii U. So, I picked it up. Glad I did, too. It’s so good.


    But the damn controllers are so small! I even got third party rails for them that make them bigger, and they’re still hard to use and make my hands hurt.

    Otherwise, home run.

    I'm going in finsih Persona 5...i'm 88 hours in, i "think" i'm near the end...but i have been doing the true end route which in Royal gives you an extra semester and new palace so i probably have another...20-30 hours? I'm aming to get the platinum while i'm at it. And Makoto is the best girl, though they game does make you feel pretty bad for not romancing the others

    Finished up the plat for Mad Max yesterday. It's a pretty by-the-numbers open world game but I really enjoyed it. Ground and car combat are both tough at first but are good fun once you get some upgrades. Got it from PS+ so a free 80+ hour(I spent a lot of time screwing around with collectibles) game hit the spot during quarantine.

    that's me with #1. couldn't figure out how it's supposed to be 'fun' to die so much and get almost no upgrades to make it easier. it's mostly about luck and I hate that.
