Did you know they just released the QOL update with the figment finding camera filter? And the check marks for each fast travel location? Should make it much much easier than before
Should of mentioned I'm playing the first game on PS4 but thanks 😊

Ghost of Tsushima and i dont like the freedom that u have on this game, i m 29hours into the game and didnt even finish act1.

I m so OP right now that the game is kinda boring at the moment, playing on Hard difficult.

They should have implemented something like enemies lvl ( like assassins Creed ).

Recently purchased MK11 on the XB1 yesterday. Been playing through the story mode a bit and have been enjoying it.

Having played every MK since Deadly Alliance, these last two entries in the series are probably the best 2 I've played.

Love this game, going to keep going tonight. Also been playing Forza Horizon 5, and wow, what a game. These 2 are the GOTYs for me.

Apex Legends. I've been playing it actively since release but I took a break last season. Decided to give it another try with the new map.

Unpacking. It's the type of game I never knew I needed. So relaxing to play.

Finished Dread so I'm going to try and muster up the desire to get all the endings. Going to be hard since I'm thoroughly enjoying Deadly Premonition 2 right now.

Got COD Vanguard it fits right in with the franchise and at least has a memorable story compared to WW2 think about that campaign it was very average, Vanguard’s campaign is solid.

Vanguard PS5, Forza Series X. The rest got backlogged (diablo, age of empires, back 4 blood, farcry)

BF this weekend so if that's not hot garbage, it'll take up most of my gaming time. If hot garbage, then back to cod and forza.

Just finished CoD Vanguard’s campaign. There were so many amazing set piece gun fights. You know the enemy is spawning, but it feels so good to swap weapons and waste them. The developer did a good job of making everything look cool even if it’s guiding your hand. At least the hand is taking you on a fun ride. The story is still over my head because it doesn’t feel impactful. There’s nothing tying me to these characters. I’d break it down to “killing nazis”. That feeling of reliving WW2 is definitely there.

Still playing Diablo 2: Ressurected. I like how it's a long-term game that can be played in short bursts, pretty much any time. Perfect for breaks between school work.

Right now I'm grinding for runes, but it's still fun just killing crap. Highly addictive gameplay.

Resubbed to FFXIV a couple of days ago, feels so nice to visit this world again. Relearning the mechanics has been a major pain the ass though (last time I played 14 was in January of 2020).

Wii version of REmake but played on the Wii U. Game still looks amazing and looks even better on the Wii U gamepad screen. Being able to play the game with the wiimote held sideways is really cool. It's like playing RE with a NES controller, lol. Aiming feels weird at times cause it's the B button but the control pad works great with the tank controls.

Still chipping away at RE4 (Wii) and Revelations 1 & 2. For Rev2 I'm just collecting BP to unlock outfits for the campaign. Didn't realize until the other day that the game has Barry's 1996 outfit and Claire's RE2 outfit. Rev1 is just nice to play in bed, Wii U version of course.

Metro Exodus.

Eh ... I've got a few issues with this game. The gulf between difficulty settings is bonkers. On Normal, I'm getting absolutely destroyed (dying non-stop), while resources and ammo are quite scarce. On Easy, I'm the one doing all the destroying, and the loot is coming out of my ears. No happy medium here.

Also, there seems to be an issue with the hit boxes a lot of the time. I'm missing with shots and knives at point-blank range. Unload a shotgun into a zombie / ghoul thing standing next 3 feet from me, and half the pellets are slamming into the ground behind them. It's odd. Same thing when throwing a knife. It just goes straight through them. It's like there's some RNG on whether the throw will hit, regardless of distance.

A shame, as the game is pretty good other than that.

Right now I consider Alan Wake Remastered my only "active" game at this moment, as I have finished Metroid Dread last week. I am thinking about dropping it though. I loved Quantum Break which I just beat recently, but something about the gameplay in AW did not age well. Maybe they should not have remastered but remade it instead.

finally finished Doom Eternal. I liked it but by the end I had no desire to play the Ancient Gods dlc.

also tried Age of Empires 4, however halfway through the tutorials the rts nostalgia made me want to play Beyond All Reason instead (a free Total Annihilation/Supreme Commander clone).

on phone im playing Hearthstone Mercenaries mode (in pve). was out of touch with the game and wasnt aware there was more single player content (I quit multi in card games because the treadmill is too addictive/demanding). single player (pve) is a good way to have some fun with the mechanics with a set endpoint. apparently Legends of Runettra also has pve mode now too - will probably also check that out

SMT V. About 16 hours in and it's everything I wanted from it. Great gameplay, amazing soundtrack and even more difficult than it's predecessors.

Shin Megami Tensei 3 Nocturne remaster and I am really not liking it. Just hallway after hallway and the level design is very drab and boring looking. Either red or brown or white hallways. About 15 hours in and I think I am going to throw in the towel. I mean, I do not need this game to be Persona with it's social links, but I expect more character interaction than this in a JRPG.
IMO SMT 3 is more of a dungeon crawler than your typical JRPG, as the focus of the game is to build your team of demons and fight with them. I know this could be boring for some but if you enjoy the combat you should have no problem.

For me the thing that made me keep going was the gameplay, music, atmosphere aNd the story, which might not be always there but when it is it can be really interesting.

I'm sorry my man... Feel free to put me on ignore until you got the game. Don't worry, I'll understand. :goog_relieved:

Until then I wish you the best. Really sucks that the game'll be releasing a bit later in Canada. Have you considered buying it digital?

I already pre-order the physical copy and I will just have to wait 4 extra days while cursing your name.

edit: you are not in my ignore list but you are definitely on my shit list now.

Got all the endings in Dread so I'm officially never touching it again which means Deadly Premonition 2 is sitting in my Switch until the end of time. Just started the second chapter. It's awkward playing it without the patch but still totally worth it.

Just got to Drangleic in Dark Souls 2 (1st version) playing on PS3.

Oddly, the game really is free from some things I didn't like about SOTFS, as if in some ways they made it worse in the re-edition. It also feels much easier. I may do a RTTP when I'm done.

Riftbreaker on PS5.

Suprisingly great mixture of tower defense, action rpg and exploration.

Loving it.

And not gonna lie, always happy to support dev studio from my country of origin (Poland).

Finished Alan Wake Remaster and I didn't like it very much. The story was pretty good, with a spooky atmosphere and some nice Twin Peaks-vibes. But the combat was awful and the game as a whole was incredibly repetitive. You fight the same goddamn redneck enemies through the entire game using the same basic movement. It's also basically the same setting you run through, the woods, which becomes quite boring by the end of it. The game just lacks in variety and it hurts the overall enjoyment.

My dad brought me his PS VR headset that was collecting dust and i tried SW Squadrons on it. It changed an ok game to a fucking fantastic experience. I can't enough of it!

Mainly Guardians of the Galaxy. It's nothing like I expected but I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Do miss the gameplay at times though despite the great writing. Feels like a movie action heavy adventure most of the time.

Also, what is with the weird structure? Games used to be all about introducing some elements and then build the game around that... Here we have a game that constantly throws completely new gameplay sctions at you. This is not bad per se but it's just so weird. It's like they couldn't decide what kind of game they want to make.
