Same thing I've been playing for months. Overwatch and the division but recently got back to GTA V. But what I'm looking forward to is RE 7.

Completed Glittermitten Grove. Excellent game! Don't let faerie theme sway you


Going to power through Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, which I started on Sunday as well.

I have been meaning to play this, as I recently ordered the vinyl soundtrack. Have to use 'other' ways to play the game, since I don't have a Sega CD... but I've got that figured out.

I'm taking a break for the most part. Maybe a little Dead Rising 4 here and there.

Re: What Are You Playing? (January 2017)

I'm not sure how much more time I can put into Fable on 360. I'm about 6 hours in and getting a little bored with it. It might end up as my first unfinished game for 2017.

Just started Game of Thrones. It's my first telltale game, so it's been interesting so far.

Dragon Warrior I (technically Dragon Quest I & 2, as it's a Japanese game) on the SNES, emulated with english text.

One of my favorite games of all time.

I finished it the other day and it's quite good. If you played Papers Please it's sort of in the same ballpark. The story and characters are interesting and it probably took me 6 or so hours to play through. My one negative is you only really have 1 or two choices that are at the end of each chapter. The rest of the time you're picking out stuff that is highlighted and it's pretty straightforward. The last chapter you get to make more choices though which made it more of a challenge to figure out what info to use and what not to.

I just started today and have only played through the second mission, so I'm not all that far in. I'm having a blast so far, though. It really doesn't feel like anything else around: intense even though I'm feeling as if I should've bumped the difficulty up from the default, its insistence on avoiding cutscenes (you're killing demons in the first 15 seconds!) while still offering a sense of progression and something resembling a story, the mix of corridor shooting and sprawling, multilevel maps, the rarity these days of a 60fps campaign on a console, the emphasis on melee combat / getting up close and personal vs. blasting away at a safe distance... Based on what little I've played, I can definitely see why it's a staple on so many Best of 2016 lists.

Forza Horizon 3 (XBox One) is my go to for now, fun and easy to play in short busts or longer play sessions.
