It's good, but more serious and sombre compared to WD2...
It's a revenge story...
Very much a revenge story but so satisfying when you
pull the pin on Lucky Quinn and end his life
WD2 went for a fluffier more lighter tone the third game has gone off the rails with wacky.
Yeah, I do appreciate the quirky tone of WD2. And I love the nostalgic references. It's pure joy.
Legion? Looks like fun...
But the wacky stuff seems a bit OTT like the granny with the drones
I just got Horizon Zero Dawn. Hoping to play it a little today.
Freedom Fighters for the original Xbox.
Great game with great sci-fi story.
Super Mario Bros
The NES was a bit other than "my time" but I'm really liking the experience, also proving it's not "nostalgia" since I never exactly had it for the NES to begin with. Kooky.
The only bad thing is that those controllers can give you hand cramps with extended play.
I started playing Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix a few days ago.
Halo Reach came out on PC today as part of MCC and it's everything I remember such a good game with friends.
Struggling to finish Far Cry New Dawn. It's just bland
I've added that to my basket, but I'll be on campaign mode if I do get it.
I've finished the first one on PC, played some of the second but none of the others anywhere yet.
Started Phoenix Point yesterday.. a spiritual successor to the original X-Com (developed by the original XCom creator) and in some ways similar to the current XCom games but with enough differences to be its own thing.
I'm just a few hours in but so far i like it a lot.. the combat system is well known. You move a squad of soldiers with different abilities and weapons across a map using cover and shoot/engage the enemy while on the strategic world map you build up your force by researching upgrades and discovering the story of the game.
It was a huge success with crowdfunding, marred a bit when midway through development they switched from Steam to Epic (Epic invested in their game in exchange for the exclusive rights) which pissed off some backers.
Graphics wise it is decent but to be honest it shows a little that it's crowdfunded because they did cut corners where they could, i.e. there's a ton of story material and dialogue/diplomacy with other factions but you only get a voice over over a picture and some dialogue/choice options how to respond so no animations or cut scenes that some may be used to in AA titles.
However it doesn't bother me as much since the gameplay seems to be quite good and i've barely scratched the surface so my opinion may change (and i hope it won't). Right now i'd really recommend it to any XCom or turn based strategy fans.
My mom got me Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order as a Solstice (which we do instead of Christmas) present, and I started playing it this morning. I'm only a couple hours into, and I'm enjoying it so far.
Far Cry New Dawn is boring and insufferable.
The twins are not scary
Been playing Pokemon X lately to shiny hunt, along with Pokemon Moon to work on getting a shiny Magikarp.
Got Pokemon Shield for a Secret Santa gift, but I can't play it until I get my Nintendo Switch back from repairs/replacement. It somehow bricked on me.
I made the mistake of buying Persona 5 for $9 on Black Friday. Its a terrible game with a time limit and forced stealth mechanics, and how it got so much praise I'll never know. But it was cheap, so its not a huge deal that I can't stand it.
But, on a positive note, I've started playing Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, and as a new Yakuza fan as of the last few months (having played and loved Yakuza 0 and Kiwami so far), its really great. he combat is fun, the (Japanese) voice acting is great (Kiryu's voice actor also being the voice of Kenshiro is amazing), and I just found the Hostess Club management game,m which I spent about 10 hours 100%ing in Yakuza 0, and so I will probably be dropping a lot of hours into it here.
I also own Yakuza Kiwami 2, and will probably buy the 3-5 remastered Collection and Yakuza 6 around Christmas, so I got a lot of stuff I'm excited to play (although I'll probably play a different game inbetween each game so that I don't get burned out).
Woah woah woah - it's Rizzo's!
