    On mobile platforms there are a bunch of these "Kingdom of..." or "...of Kings" or "King's..." games that are essentially the same. Empire building with various mini games thrown in. I'm trying out a few to pass the time.

    Good game but it feels way too long - especially with some drawn out boss battles and the fact both of you have to generally succeed at tasks and when your playing with a lesser player it can become tiresome.

    They are doing a free play weekend for the Avengers game, so I decided to check it out. I played through the first part of the game, with Kamala at the A Day celebration, through to the Helicarrier blowing up, but then it stopped and said it had more content to install. It's been about 45 minutes or so, and it was only at 30% last time I checked, which is a whole 4% higher than the 26% it was at when it first came up. I think this is going to take a while.
    What I played was pretty fun, so I'm looking forward to playing more.

    No XBox free weekend for Avengers, oh well.

    "Rise of the Dragon" - an old point'n'click DOS/Sega/Amiga game. Nice attention to detail. Also forgot about file structures for saves not being the automated fluff nowadays. DOS version was surprisingly good for 1990, though Amiga still had slightly more polished graphics and gradients...

    "Epic Pinball" - a series of pinball games for DOS. Great physics but not all the boards were great... "Enigma" was the coolest, but naturally I'd gravitate to that one...

    I've been playing Sackboy on the PS5 and Flight Simulator 2020 and The Ascent on the Series X. And I still need to finish Doom Eternal.

    Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and NEO: The World Ends with You are all being played for upcoming reviews. (Unfortunately, there were difficulties with publishers, so they're all arriving blatantly late.)

    I'm also playing Persona 5 Royal and Star Wars Battlefront II, both purely for fun.

    I just started NEO: The World Ends with You on Switch and am enjoying it so far. Though I'll need to learn the techniques of the battle system soon, as I already died once (on normal difficulty!)...

    I started Hades.

    I find myself wishing that I could play a game with this exact combat that isn’t a Roguelike.

    Possibly the best combat for its genre of all time. But I hate starting from square one every time.

    I bought Final Fantasy VII Remaster Intergrade for the PS5 a few days ago and that's all I've been playing since then... I'm really enjoying it.

    I've been playing the Steamworld Dig games. I find all that digging to be somewhat tedious.

    Electronic Football, based on the 1970's Mattel handheld. Quite a blast from the past for $15. Though I wish they had updated to rechargeable batteries.

    Just started The Outer Worlds. Waited until the DLC came out as I heard the initial game was quite short.

    Finished God of War (with PS5 patch - 4K @ 60FPS) a week back. Incredible. Easily one of the best games I've ever played.

    Currently doing a replay of Red Dead Redemption 2. Taking my time with it this time round. I never thought I'd spend so much time playing PS4 games on the new console. First time playing RDR2 was on a standard PS4 / regular TV. I thought it looked great then. Now with the PS5 and a decent 4K HDR screen, it looks phenomenal.

    The one game I'm itching to have a go at is Witcher 3 - waiting for the free PS5 upgrade due out later this year.

    Yeah, that game had one of the best narratives of the previous generation. The gameplay too I felt was pretty great. I had never played a God of War until that point, and felt it was well-balanced in terms of difficulty, and everything was manageable, never impossible. Well, the Valkyries were one exception, but then they were made to be more difficult and not mandatory. But I did as much exploration as I could in that game. The puzzles were fun and satisfying. In general, I'm really looking forward to whatever comes next with the franchise.

    Scarlet Nexus is starting to remind me of Heroes, from Kasane’s side of the story. Except instead of saving the cheerleader she has to kill a guy to save the world.

    And I’m starting to think she was explicitly written to be on the autism spectrum. Anyone can write a character as logical and not emotionally expressive but when they are figuring out people’s emotions by comparing their facial expressions to similar ones made by other people there’s probably a very specific intent.

    I started playing Hollow Knight yesterday. I think I got past the first area. So far it’s ok, but hasn’t gripped me entirely.
    I prefer Ori‘s parkour over HK‘s combat focus.
    Pro 2 had more combat, but still a better balance.
    I hope I get more movement abilities, to get more of that feel.
