Re: What Are You Playing? (January 2019)

Super Metroid for the SNES Classic, and having a blast. I only beat the first Metroid about 3-4 years ago on my NES. Probably jump into the Castlevania or Zelda games next.

Re: What Are You Playing? (January 2019)

I just started Overcooked! 2 on the XB1X with my wife. We 3-starred everything in the first game (1000/1000!) and are aiming to do the same here, although we might skip a few of the tedious achievements. Maybe we'll fire up Super Smash Bros. Ultimate after that.

I still haven't played a solo game this year. My hope is to play through Hellblade on the XB1X in the next week or two, and then I might start on Just Cause 4 (also XB1X).

Rainbow Six Siege (X1) --- my sick obsession as R6stats.com claims I've played for 9 days+
Spiderman (PS4) ---- LOVE this game, I'll definitely get the DLC

Re: What Are You Playing? (January 2019)

I just wrapped up Far Cry Primal and now trying to finish Shadow of the Tomb Raider before I completely lose interest. After that I think I'm going to play a nice short game to cleanse my palate before playing KH3 in a few weeks.

Re: What Are You Playing? (January 2019)

I finished Infamous Second Son and now I'm not sure what to play. I should go back to Odyssey or RDR2 but I'm not sure if I want to be heavily invested in a game right now.

I enjoyed G3, but agree it's weaksauce compared to the greatness that is G2.

Would love to see 1 & 3 remastered in HD and released to PC. As well as a G4....

but all we got is a broken G2 remaster where audio is desynced and bugs abound that they claim is unfixable, yet apparently have now reportedly fixed for the upcoming Switch port yet have outright stated it can't be reproduced on PC... what?

I started playing Batman: Arkham Knight. I stopped playing this game nearly 4 years ago when I got stuck at the Ace Chemicals helicopter battle with the tank drones on the batmobile. I restarted again and upgraded the batmobile to pass this stage.

yes and no. i can open up missions and having fun doing them, it's just hard getting to them sometimes. and the driving missions, forget about it. i suck at any driving with most vehicles in this game. they are just too fast and loose. and the timed missions are a pain to get through, but i soldier on and it's a good/fun game overall...

I I don’t have JC4 and I won’t for a while. I’m going to wait until it’s really cheap or hopefully it’s free on PS+.

How many hours did you clock in? My first play took about 27 hours. My second play was only like 18 hours. Fairly short game despite covering two discs.
Loved the theme song 'In the Sky' by Miz.

I did like 80+ hours... Did a lot of leveling up over and over and over... plus sometimes I leave mid game and leave it on to do something, so hours accumulate. Stupid non-stop timer.

Re: What Are You Playing? (January 2019)

Use to be a big Grandia fan back in the day, actually ran a fansite at grandia-online.net for years. Don't bother trying to go there now though, I let the domain go after years of the site sitting there and it's now owned by one of those spam blog sites with nothing on it.
