Re: What Are You Playing? (December 2019)

My December will be dominated by some combination of Switch games: Smash (which I still havenít even fired up after nearly a year), River City Girls (Limited Run edition just got here yesterday), and Astral Chain.

If I have a chance to play any Christmas gifts before the yearís out, first up will definitely be Fallen Order.

Re: What Are You Playing? (December 2019)

I'll continue with Warframe as the next update will let us have Spaceship Battles that you can other groups involved in....

….and probably in Diablo III with seasonal though almost done....

...but the newest addition is a game I've always wanted to try....and so far far deeper and involved that I thought...

I'm still chugging along on AC Odyssey. I'm over 100 hours in and I still haven't finished the main story. I'm going to take a break after I finish the main story before I start on the DLC.

Re: What Are You Playing? (December 2019)

Lol I still have to finish Odyssey. I used to poke fun at people that had backlogs and kept buying new games but that’s more or less me now. Although it’s not as bad as most.

Off the top of my head, I’m playing:

World of Warcraft
The Outer Worlds
NBA 2k20
Jedi Fallen Order
Link’s Awakening

I still have yet to start:

Persona 5
Baldur’s Gate 1&2

I still have to finish:

AC Odyssey
Mass Effect Andromeda
Resident Evil 7
Super Mario Odyssey
Breath of the Wild

and there is at least half a dozen more I'm forgetting.

Re: What Are You Playing? (December 2019)

I am shockingly still playing Call of Duty. These games typically have a 3-4 week shelf life before I lose interest, but this ones got its hooks on me something fierce. GOTY so far.

I also started Death Stranding. I think I like it a lot, definitely more than I thought. Itís deeply weird though. Iím like 7-8 hours in and still havenít figured out a bunch of the systems and mechanics.

Finally Iím also playing Luigis Mansion 3. Iíd argue this is the best game on Switch. At least Iím enjoying it more than any other game Iíve played in the system so far.

Recently Finished:
Gris (PS4) this was high up on my list last year when it was Switch exclusive and I replayed the recently released PS4 version. It looks even better than the Switch version and is still the best looking game I've ever played.

Currently Playing:
Neo Cab (Switch)

Up Next:
Blacksad: Under the Skin (PS4)

I started The Outer Worlds and Graveyard Keeper over the weekend. I'm going to try to get back to Assassin's Creed Odyssey this weekend. I'm getting close to finishing the main story.

I actually just finished this up last night. I picked it up because it ended up on a couple game of the year lists. I was pretty underwhelmed. It has some good moments and like a lot of videos are showing it runs great. But it's got some atrocious platforming in some of the monuments due to the poor camera angles and I didn't really find any of the side quest minigames to be that interesting or fun.

Re: What Are You Playing? (December 2019)

^ I'm having a bitch of a time with the arcade side mission (just one game; the other two were a breeze). The side missions in general all seem very simple and laid back, which kind of suits the game's style, so I don't take much issue with that aspect.
I get what you mean about the platforming... it's... unforgiving. But it hasn't been particularly grating for me (yet). Everything else about the game shines, and I'm in love with the design.
It seems like it's a very short game, but I haven't looked to see exactly how far I am into it.
