    Greedfall on PS4 via PS+. Man, this game feels quite janky. It's quite fun, but at times it feels more like a PS3 game rather than from the PS4 era.

    Me three. I'm a bit fan of the franchise overall, and I thought they game did a great job of bring the feel of the movies over to the video game world.

    Yeah, Mad Max was a pretty fun game. One aspect I really liked was the car upgrading, which not only changed its performance, but the sound as well. Good attention to detail there.

    I beat AC: Valhalla yesterday and I started playing Marvel's Avengers earlier today.

    Played a solid month of Monster Hunter Rise on Switch, really enjoyed it. Could never get into previous MH games I attemped to play. Might pick it up again when they actually release the proper endgame at the end of the month.

    Star Citizen. The 3.13.1 alpha has just released, and there are more core features added. They keep this up, we'll have a full game by 20...30... something.

    Well, I said I wasn't going to do it, but I did. I got the Season Pass for Immortals Fenyx Rising and am on the last trial. No exploration in the A New God DLC, just non-stop vaults and trials. Which isn't bad. One trial really stumped me and I had to look up the solution, which was super obvious, now that I look back. The next DLC I'm kinda "meh" about, the third DLC I'm kinda stoked about, since it kinda reverts to a top down "Zelda: A Link To the Past" perspective.

    Ditto - finished it last night. 158 hours. Every treasure, mystery and artifact. Every legendary weapon. All done.

    I feel so empty. Is post-game depression a thing? :lol:

    I wish I hadn't been so OCD collecting everything as I went. It would've been nice to have had a few dozen things to do with all the end of game gear I acquired.

    AC: Valhalla was my partner's purchase. But boy, was I the one who got sucked down the rabbit hole.

    I don't have another PS5 game to tickle my fancy, which isn't a bad thing (as far as my productivity goes). Although, we have Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. I'd like to give it a decent go - it's my partner's favorite. But, there's an update in the works for the PS5 in the back half of this year and I'm tempted to wait till then.

    Yeah I just completed the main storyline. There's no way I'd go for 100%. ;) And I have gotten 100% in some of the previous AC games like Origins and Syndicate.

    Yeah I also wanna give Witched 3 another shot, but I'm also waiting for the PS5 patch.

    Anyway, I've been playing Avengers for almost a week now and I'm having a ton of fun with it. Once I'm done with it I'll probably play Oddworld: Soulstorm.

    Playing Minecraft extremely heavily right now.
    The Realms server I play with friends on recently has gotten so alive.
    Instead of everyone doing their thing thousands of blocks away all on their own, we decided to build a new community hub with a shared center area and pretty much everyone in shouting distance.
    We are gonna have a number of resource shops to trade with each other and live the multiplayer experience.
    We are trying to emulate the Hermitcraft server a bit, obviously on a lower scale.
    Such fun.

    Post-game depression is a thing (at least for me). There was about three months after The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild where I couldn't find anything to play that piqued my interest so I didn't play any games at all.

    The same thing happened when I got done with Far Cry 5 and Ghost of Tsushima.

    Luckily it didn't happen after I finished Valhalla, as I jumped straight into Spider-Man Miles Morales then Immortals Fenyx Rising.

    I had left a lot on the side when completing the main story in games like RDR2 and GTAV, so thought I'd give the completest angle a shot. But yeah, it was a bit mad. Still, loved the game. My first foray into the world of AC.

    Well, I'm not alone then. I'm still get a vicarious fix watching my partner finish the game. :lol:

    Speaking of Ghosts of Tsushima - I just ordered a copy last night. I keep hearing about it and from what I gather it's an amazing game and looks phenomenal on the PS5. That should tide me over until GTAV and The Witcher 3 get their PS5 upgrades.

    Regarding Valhalla... yeah ok, that makes sense. I've played all the proper AC games that have been made including Liberation on the Vita. So while I do still enjoy playing the games, I just don't have the patience (or the will-power) to got for 100%. ;)

    As for Ghost of Tsushima... I absolutely loved that game. I got the platinum in that game. Vventually I might even replay it on the PS5 like I did God of War. Both games look great at 60fps. :)

    Yeah, Ghosts of Tsushima is an amazing game. Finished it a few weeks ago. Absolutely engrossing. Love the variety in the landscape.

    This may sound like a weird one, but I just spent a few hours playing Space Crusade. Yes, the old 90's DOS game based on the board game. For some reason I've been on a 40K kick for the last month and it won't go away...

    Had fun times with that, but I think I have the Amiga version rather than dos:)
    Heroquest on the other hand was probably the first PC game I properly played - at least until I got my 486. Heroquest was played on an old 386sx laptop:D

    I'd prefer the Amiga version, though messing around with emulators and tracking down boot roms is a bit of a pain. DosBox just works.

    The weird part is that I don't have a lot of nostalgia for this game. Never played the videogame version back in the day, but I did own the physical board game in the late 90's (long gone now, mores the pitty) when I was getting into model making. Turns out I'm crap at painting, and only had one friend (who was a HUGE 40K nerd) willing to play. Also I couldn't wrap my head around the rules at the time. Back then I was adverse to any games that felt suspiciously like homework. It's also what put me off about RPGs in general (pen & paper or videogames ) all the way up until 'Dragon Age: Origins' & 'Mass Effect'.
    Seriously, I bought KoTOR, played it for 30 mins, almost immediately uninstalled and let it sit on my shelf untouched for like 5 years before I gave it another go it because all that d20 "repeatedly miss someone standing right in front of me" felt tedious and stupid.
    Does a ZX Spectrum count as a PC? If so then my first PC game was Jetpac. ;)

    Still got a working Amiga (A500+) so that's not so bad for me. If we're going old computers, the first real one I had was an Oric 48k (Ultra - basically Space Invaders being the first game), and a Spectrum 48k followed. Not sure if the original Spectrum is still around but there's a 128k somewhere, as is the Oric. I haven't booted them up in a while so I might need to check them. Still got all the tapes though.
