    Yeah Shredder's Revenge is a great quick diversion that doesn't take a bunch of investment. There's no exhausting tutorials or overly complex mechanics, but the whole thing is actually balanced really well and the controls feel great. A+.

    It's a great title to jog back in forth to from something that takes more investment. I'm still going through the main quest in Final Fantasy 14, and its newest expansion Endwalker is getting really epic.

    Shredder's Revenge is what gaming is all about. Immediately brings you back to the local couch days. Playing on hard is no slouch though!

    So HOLY SHIT. I finally realized that I HAD Buffy: Chaos Bleeds on my hacked wii.

    It's a damn fine game in general, but if you're a Buffy fan.x Gamer, this is Must Play territory.

    It's a well above average, fairly challenging 3d beat em' up, with exploration and puzzle solving that's not too hard, but not stupidly easy, either.

    The fighting is a nice mix: each player has full move sets, and they feel just like you'd imagine (as in Buffy FEELS like Buffy, while xander feels like xander, etc.
    It ain't tekken, but it's far more complex than Street Fighter. Buffy, in particular, has like eight pages of combos and moves.

    What makes this fucking HEAVENLY for me, though, is the fact that it plays like a lost episode of Buffy. Most of the actual cast reprise their roles, as voice actors. The story is a bit goofy, but a bit frightening: pitch perfect for BtVS.

    And the action takes place all over a DAMN fine representation of Sunnydale: Magic Box, Cemetery, etc.

    The music is sheer perfection.

    I'm in love with this one.

    Picked up Terminator: Resistance the other day and I'm enjoying it waaay more than I thought I would. Sure it looks like a PS3 era game but as a die hard Terminator fan,....it really is pushing all the right buttons.

    Me too, glad I took the chance and bought it. Although now I'm at a part where I need to get back to someone and have no idea where they are. Haha. Won't be able to play for the next couple of days so should be fun to figure that out over the weekend.

    I've finally really gotten into Demons Souls for PS5. As much as I love the game and it was a day 1 buy for me, I have found it daunting to dive back in. I am glad I did though; this is amazing. The improvements bring the world to life in a way I totally did not expect, and the redone sound is just great

    The Stanley Parable.

    HOLY SHIT... how have I not experienced this until now? This is legendary; the sort of shit you talk to your shrink about because you think it might give them some needed perspective.

    This is a video game that is so obviously a work of interactive "art" that it will make you feel guilty and stupid for ever questioning the medium, while it simultaneously makes you question your big life choices. Just play this game if you haven't. It's unreal how great it is.

    Sorry for overselling it, but it is on sale right now on PSN, and that sale ends tonight. Buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy buy, then buy again. A+, 100%, good shit, guaranteed.

    The Ultra Deluxe came out a little while ago and it's apparently just as good - if not better - from what I've heard.

    Also, I did not know this but now I wonder which will spoil the other:
    Severance, an Apple TV+ series, took inspiration from The Stanley Parable.

    I'm playing the Ultra Deluxe version, and oh god it's glorious. And now, I will check out Severance.

    Spoiler Alert: The Playstation version of it has trophies for:

    1. Not playing the game for ten years and then playing it again
    2. Playing it for 24 hours cumulative on a tuesday

    I'm working on that cumulative Tuesday trophy right now, bless this wonderful interactive misanthropic experience.

    It was pretty easy to cheese that achievement by just changing the date ahead ten years.

    I beat it again the other day...I still love it (even if you can't jump!)

    I have the trophy, so I am qualified to say that your solution works perfectly! But I'd argue it's the thought that counts

    A few games I'm giving a go on the ol' Switch Oled:

    Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. What a fun little game. Super easy and light and I needed this during a stressful time. The nostalgia force is strong with this one.

    Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Maybe not for me. I actually enjoyed the first one, but this is 80% story/cutscenes and complex tutorials and maybe 20% combat and exploration (which to be fair is rather fun). I find it sort of exhausting.

    Into the Breach. Great little alien/chess-like strategy game. Can't recommend enough. Super pick up and play game.
