Re: What are you Playing? (January 2020)

Whenever I can get the TV away from my Pokemon Shield-addicted wife, I'll be playing some combination of:

Concrete Genie (PS4 Pro)
The Outer Worlds (Xbox One X)
Yookie-Laylee: The Impossible Lair (Xbox One X)
Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order (Xbox One X)

...and maybe some River City Girls co-op, if I can get Maggie to shift back to a different Switch game. I'm interested in Tokyo Mirage Sessions, but I don't think I'm buying anything new this month.

Re: What are you Playing? (January 2020)

I didn't realize Tokyo Mirage Sessions was coming out this month. I'll probably pick it up. The only thing I have preordered that comes out this month is Dragonball Z: Kakarot. A DBZ rpg sounds like a fun time so I'll play it unless it gets like atrocious reviews then I'll probably skip it.

Iím back into Battletech in a big big way. Reinstalled it and bought the three expansions this week. It is top 5 all time for me.

And playing it with the Steam controller is just fantastic.

Iím also messing around with Dead Cells again on Switch, and picked up Baba is You yesterday.

I bailed on SW Jedi Fallen Order, Wolfenstein Youngblood, and Death Stranding. Thankfully they were all library rentals.

I think I'm going to wrap up Batman Enemy Within next and maybe go back to Hitman.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne (PS4)

I believe I'm nearing the end of the campaign.

Even when I think I'm done, the game keeps me coming back!

Broke away from replaying Final Fantasy IX (PS1) to play Chrono Trigger (PS1) and now Chrono Cross (PS1). I'm enjoying the hell out of these games...

Re: What are you Playing? (January 2020)

I finished The Outer Worlds and Assassin's Creed Odyssey's main story (I'm taking a break before playing the DLC). I've been playing World War Z online with a friend and I'm going to start Days Gone soon.

I'm about 15 hours into Fire Emblem: Three Houses and it's fantastic. I've only played a couple FE games before this and never completed and all the stuff I read made it seem this game would be overwhelming with systems but it's been enjoyable and addicting.

Amazingly Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. I completed the game a while back, but going through and clearing everything else.

Also picked up Fallen Order over Christmas and startrd that. Got the Division 2 Ultimate Edition downloading as I type this (100gb download...sheesh) and that should be ready to go by tomorrow morning. I also got back into Star Wars Battlefront 2 and tempted to upgrade to the Celebration Edition.

I have actuallactually big pile of games that I need to start and play through, so its gonna be a busy year.

Re: What are you Playing? (January 2020)

I'm hooked on Halo: Reach as it came on PC not long ago. I never owned an Xbox and was a PC gamer all my life. It's really exciting to finally enjoy this game 9 years after its original release on Xbox 360. I'm quite a huge fan of Halo franchise, not just the games but all the sci-fi space opera lore it contains. For example, I very much enjoyed anime series Halo: Legends. Can't wait to see it what 343 industries did with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary as I passed the PC version of the original game countless times.

Some friends convinced me to play GTA Online with them so I've put roughly 60 hours into the game in the past week.

Yakuza Kiwami (PS4)

Oddly enough, the last game I played in the Yakuza series was the original game back in 2006.

As a remake, I'm enjoying a lot of the changes I've run into thus far but the Fetch Quests are still a bit ridiculous.

Re: What are you Playing? (January 2020)

Picked up Dragonball Z: Kakarot yesterday. So far it's fun but the controls need some work. I haven't read anything about it so I'm interested in seeing how far into the DBZ story it goes. Wasn't expecting it to start right at the beginning of the show.

Re: What are you Playing? (January 2020)

Powered through Wandersong over the last few days. Although it's probably about 2 hours too long, I still loved it. It actually gets pretty heavy with the main plot, but the game itself only has a couple moments that I would call challenging and only really because the way to beat those parts isn't quite obvious.
I'd say it took me about 10 hours overall. Definitely a game I'd recommend.

Re: What are you Playing? (January 2020)

After months away and seeing some hard t pass specials in the PS Store a few weeks ago, I decided to return to this....it's been fun playing again, two friends also got into it and found a Guild that actually does stuff with everyone and couldn't pass up doing the Elsweyr w/Dragons Story....

Playing the Witcher III on the PS4 and am absolutely hooked. Probably have 65-75hrs in right now and am not even close to finishing it. I'm definitely good with that

Dragon Ball Z Kakarot (PS4). It's rough and there is an abundance of lazy design choices. Dunno if I'll finish it.

SUBNAUTICA using this (Thank U, Gamepass!)



You can grab all of Subnautica's achievements in 30 minutes using BiLLzuMaNaTi's guide

Previous estimates had the game down as a 40-50 hour completion, however various speedrun techniques and now the console command method easily gets Subnautica a sub-one-hour completion tag

Just finished this up. I picked it up on a whim because I wanted something shorter after spending almost 70 hours playing Fire Emblem: Three Houses and it had gotten good reviews. If I would have know it was going to be a Metroid Prime inspired game this would have been one of my anticipated games of the year. It's a really fun colorful game with a good sense of humor and an interesting planet to explore.
