I'm sure there'll be something else in rotation this month, but:

Re: What Are You Playing? (June 2017)

Has-Been Heroes (XB1)....not sure why I'm still playing it. It's obvious I suck at it, lol. If I didn't have a toddler, I'd probably be a lot better, but short sessions don't help at all. Going to be at 25 filled orbs soon and only beat it once (you have to beat it seven times to get all endings)...I've compared myself with a few others on TrueAchievements, and I'm way behind. Most people by 25 filled orbs have beat the game 2 or 3 times. Plus it seems so luck based with getting the right spells at the right time. Don't regret buying it, but just frustrating I guess.

Re: What Are You Playing? (June 2017)

Just dropped Breath of the Wild (WiiU). I know that will be blasphemy to some but I just don't get it. Nearly every mechanic the game does has been around since 2009 and how it's put together isn't particularly impressive either. You add in weapons breaking every four minutes and cumbersome resource management and it just doesn't work for me.

Moving onto Tales Of Beseria.

I really fell off the Breath of the Wild train as well. It didn't help that I dumped over 40 hours into Horizon Zero Dawn a month earlier, and I felt like that game did everything better. Maybe if I played Zelda first it would have turned out differently, but for now it's going on the back burner.

I'm still playing through DOOM, Forza Horizon 3, and recently picked back up Assassins Creed Syndicate. I feel like I've been playing the same games forever now

I played about 3 hours now and it's really hard to describe. I see a lot of Journey comparisons and I don't really get that vibe maybe more ICO. You start off on this big island and you're not told anything or where to go. There is no map in the game or instructions really telling you what to do. It seemed from the start that I was going to spend my whole time exploring the island but after about 30 minutes I went in this tower and started an adventure making my way through some different areas solving puzzles, escaping from a giant bird and 3 hours later I've still never returned to that big island.

I'm really enjoying it so far.

Uncharted 4 multiplayer still keeps me entertained over one year later.

Just wrapped this one up. I enjoyed it. It was kindve like the awkward little brother of Journey.

Re: What Are You Playing? (June 2017)

After watching the E3 presentation for it's sequel, I picked up Battlefront Ultimate Edition for PC the other day and have been playing a good amount of that. Ten dollars well spent.

I also started Nier yesterday. Made it through the first/tutorial mission and stopped. I'll pick it up again later this week when I have more time.

Next game on the list after that is likely Mass Effect.
