Put three hours in on Destiny today... my kid brother says I have a month to get through it and Destiny 2, so I can team up with him on the new one in Sept.

I'm almost finished with Mafia 3. It's decent but is very repetitive. Even more than the typical open world game.

Finished Happy Trigger Havoc (Danganronpa 1) and just getting into Goodbye Despair (Danganronpa 2). I'm glad I found out about these games (and that there's a 3rd one to play that came out last year). It's not the sort of thing I can see having mass appeal, especially in the US, but I'm thankful there's an audience out there for this weird blend of visual novel, relationship sim, and murder mystery.

Fallout 4

Maybe I'm just used to this series now, but it seems far easier in the beginning than the previous few games. I'm still not sold on the settlement building and protecting, but it has given me one more excuse for hoarding every little item I come across. 10 hrs in.

Re: What Are You Playing? (August 2018)

Ooh Grandia. I wish I had time to replay some of those oldies and goodies. I've still got a replay of
Final Fantasy Tactics
in progress.
Most actively playing
Far Cry 5, with the occasional switch out of
Mad Max and
some turn based JRPG style game I got on sale for Xbox last week.

Re: What Are You Playing? (August 2018)

I'm hoping Octopath Traveler and No Man's Sky can get me through until Spiderman next month, but I'm already planning on getting Dead Cells this week for Switch, so I'll be playing that, too.

Re: What Are You Playing? (August 2018)



had to go back to this after being tantalized by Eternal footage. still so much fun and fast, but still so frustratingly hard. dropped to easiest or don't hurt me setting or whatever and still hard. only on 6th level so ways to go and want to push through bc really so pretty to look at and so much fun killing. am not a fan of going back to beginning or entire level when you die, but want to push and give Dying Light a break for now. though i was loving it, i just can't help myself when it comes to pure, dumb, shooting and gruesome fun...

Re: What Are You Playing? (August 2018)

I just hit 50 hours in Octopath Traveler and just finished chapter 3 for all characters. My main group is in all level 55+ but some of the characters I used less are in their mid 30's.

Re: What Are You Playing? (August 2018)

Just started on Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus (X1).



Not too far in, but I'm enjoying the world again.

Just finished up on Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (PS4). It was a nice simple diversion after playing Fallout 3 and New Vegas (and their respective DLC) back to back for the past few months.

No Man's Sky is now devouring most of my time, but I did download the Unreal Tournament pre-alpha and it's a blast. Oh Flak Cannon how I've missed you!!
