And here I thought I might be done buying new games until the next-gen consoles drop...! Especially since itís only $40 at launch.

A rare Sunday delivery. Tragically, Amazon preorders don't include the tiger shark DLC.

I bet I would enjoy playing it for an hour or two, but it doesnít look like anything worth playing for very long. Hopefully it comes to Game Pass in a few months.

The reviews Iíve read all basically bear that out. The gameís apparently really short, so at least it doesnít outrageously overstay its welcome.

The reviews say 10-15 hours which I wouldn't consider really short especially for a budget release.

Folks on ResetERA who beat it seemed to say between 6-8 hours for the main bits. 100%-ing brings it to 10-12 hours total.

Iíd really like to try this one out. I wish Redbox still rented games. It seems like the perfect game to binge on for a few days, finish, and return.

Itís stupidly addictive. Itís a ďjust one more thingĒ game where I decide Iím going to stop after I finish one more goal, and then after 30 ďone more thingĒs, itís 2 AM, Iím level 13, and literally halfway through the story in one playthrough.

Trying to eat everything you can could become the biggest distraction since picking flowers in Red Dead.

Re: Maneater (5/22/20; Steam, XB1, PS4, Switch later)

I just finished it. Full set of achievements. I have no idea how long it took since the in-game counter seems to run while itís in standby mode, at least on Xbox, but something like 12 hours sounds about right.

I know thereís all sorts of good stuff coming out later this year ó including some world-class titles just weeks away ó but if I had to judge my Game of the Year based on what Iíve played so far, this would seriously be a contender. And Iíve played through so many more games than usual too!

It has its issues for sure. Crashed once, severe static in the surrounds at one point, and the framerate devolved to a slideshow when I was grinding for bounty hunters. Not a technical problem, but some of the jumps for license plates can be a pain. But geez, I still loved just about every minute of it.
