What Are You Playing? (August 2016)

Despite all the problems this game has I'm still having a fun time exploring towns and cities.



Next week my focus will be on

I just started Farcry 4. So far it's pretty amazing.

Far Cry Primal was cheap enough on Amazon recently that I bought it, so when it comes later today I will start that.

Playing the definitive edition of Ori and the Blind Forest now, and I have Red Dead Redemption in line after that.

If there are any compelling sales for anything on my wish list (and I do have a $50 Best Buy certificate that expires next week), I'm sure I'll bite.

Mid-Month Update! Played through Deadpool on the Xbox One and Mega Man 6 on the 3DS Virtual Console. Currently playing Beyond Good and Evil HD. Have Lego City Undercover and Tomb Raider: Deluxe Edition in line after that.

Re: What Are You Playing? (August 2016)

Welp, Project Spark is essentially over since I hit level 50 (and they are only keeping it online for another week and a half) and Dangerous Golf I've pretty much beaten to a pulp, just cleaning up golds...so my slate is completely open. September is liable to be X-Com 2 (Xbox One).

So, honestly I'm not sure....a part of me wants to go back and play X-Com: Enemy Unknown (or Within) to get in the frame of mind. A part of me would like to do something like Witcher 3 or Fallout 4 but those will take a lot longer than a month. Maybe I could just go back to playing Borderlands 2 which does take longer than a month but I'm comfortable with starting and re-starting.

Having just put myself through that recently, good luck, especially with the final boss battle.

Just started Danagaronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc on Vita and Gravity Rush Remastered on PS4. Both are awesome.

I'm also playing the Black Ops III DLC Descent.

That's too bad. I played through both of them this year and loved them both. And I'm not usually big on that genre.

Re: What Are You Playing? (August 2016)

I'll continue with Fallout 4......

Started back with Paragon to mix it up....

Still in with No Man's Sky but there are questions....

...and have Warframe Dying Light and maybe even some Diablo to fall back on.

Re: What Are You Playing? (August 2016)



I want to play the new Technomancer, but have been waiting for a price drop. This was made by the same people and so I thought I would give it a try. LOVED it...it feels so cheap at times, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Poor mans Witcher on mars..

Next up Doom..

Re: What Are You Playing? (August 2016)

I'll start No Man's Sky tomorrow, but for the past few days I've been playing Dishonored. And ho-ly shit what a great game. I played it when it first launched however long ago that was, and remembered liking it then but it didn't blow my mind. After revisiting it these years later, it's top 10 for sure.

Re: What Are You Playing? (August 2016)

Assassin's Creed: Unity.

I've been on an Assassin's Creed kick lately after being off of gaming for a year or so. I don't know that I "enjoy" them, per se, although there are parts that are nice. I like the concept and the player movement, but I mostly like them as absolutely mindless entertainment with zero failure consequences, and with my job stress increasing lately it helps me unwind.

Finished up Black Flag, started and finished Rogue, Unity in progress. Next up is Chronicles and Syndicate.

Good to hear, I also want to play Technomancer and actually bought Mars in one of the recent Xbox DWG sales. In case others did not know, Mars: War Logs is backwards compatible on Xbox One.

Anyway, because I was a sucker for Happy Wars (and probably played that 60-80 hours), I started playing Happy Dungeons too. Yes, I'm a glutton for punishment.

How was Rogue? Target has it for $10 this week with cartwheel and I was thinking about picking it up.
