The only thing on the docket for me for September that I know of is The Avengers.

Edit! Okay, and I guess Super Mario 3D All-Stars.

Re: What Are You Playing? (September 2020)

Finished up Wolfenstein: The New Order. Started Skyrim. I've been putting it off for years, knowing the time sink it was going to be, but decided to finally fire it up. I forgot it had a lot in common with Fallout, and now I'm already trying to manage my desire to pick everything up and do 30 quests at once.

How's Tell Me Why? I just finished Oxenfree, and I did enjoy it, but I am very hit or miss with these types of games depending on how slow the travel is. For example, I enjoyed Gone Home, but I didn't like the Walking Dead games or Afterparty.

Still making headway on Dragon Quest 5 (DS), Final Fantasy 6 (SNES), and Ghost of Tsushima (PS4).



Also I started playing Daymare 1998 (PC) the other day.

If you haven't heard of Daymare 1998, it's a game that started out as a fan-made Resident Evil 2 Remake, but at some point in development Capcom contacted them and told them to stop as they would be doing an official Remake of the game. They also brought most of the devs into their company to give them a tour and other things. Was pretty neat. So rather than scrap all the work they'd done, they repurposed it into Daymare 1998, which pays a lot of homage to the Resident Evil franchise in many many ways. So if you like Resident Evil, it's worth checking out.

Still messing around with Divinity Original Sin 2. This could be the best game Iíve ever played. Playing on both PC and Switch.

I will surely play a bunch of Avengers this month. I liked the beta quite a bit.

I wanted to grab Tony Hawk but the price is a little steep. Epic Game Store has some really great sales throughout the year, so Iím sure I can grab it at a pretty decent discount fairly soon.

I just began Breath of the Wild for the third time since I bought it 3(?) years ago. Life's been crazy lately but I'm finally settled and hoping to find more time to get back to things.

Re: What Are You Playing? (September 2020)

Decided to replay The Last of Us on PS4. I've played it previously on PS3, but after TLoU2 I'd been itching to return to the first game and decided I should try out the remaster. Haven't gotten very far into it at this point now... Just up to the first work bench in the garage with the large truck.

I wound up playing through all of THPS1+2, that was a fun trip down memory lane.

Re: What Are You Playing? (September 2020)

Finished up most of the goals in THPS 1. Moving on to THPS 2 now. Sent my Xbox Elite controller for replacement because of the faulty A button, making the game extremely difficult, so I'm back to using my Forza controller (with new thumbsticks!)

Some levels, I just cannot get any good combos/scores, but I've been able to get all of the tapes and level-specific collectables.

Was it for sure your controller? I thought there was a known issue with the A button in Tony Hawk, but I could be wrong.

In my case it was. I remapped A to one of the extra buttons under the controller and it worked fine. Only had problems when using the real A button.

Re: What Are You Playing? (September 2020)

Still working my way through the Kingdom Hearts: Complete Story package (PS4 remaster) I bought back in the spring. Playing Birth by Sleep now. It'll take me a while since I don't have a lot of free time. So far, it seems like a pretty fun game. Much much better than the last "non-core" KH game I played (Chain of Memories). I like how we get to go to new Disney worlds and interact with new characters. My only gripe is that there are sections where clearing a mini-game is mandatory for progressing in the story. I hate when games do that, especially when the mini-game gameplay is completely different than the game itself (like putting a racing section in the middle of an action/RPG).

Having finished Last of Us 2, I'm back to Modern Warfare multiplayer trying to get Obsidian camo for my favorite guns.

Finished

I liked it a lot more than Unity. Took me forever to finish as some missions were infuriating. But I would still reccomend it for the setting alone.

Just started

Re: What Are You Playing? (September 2020)

Went back to Borderlands 3 for the new Krieg DLC. If any future level-based DLC comes out, I'm unsure if I'll pick it up. I do know I won't pay for any DLC that doesn't include levels/stories. After I do the Krieg stuff, I'll head back to digital hoarding Skyrim.

Re: What Are You Playing? (September 2020)

I've had 2 really cool experiences with indie developers in the last year where I had an issue in their game reached out to them through twitter and pretty much instantly got a response and a good interaction. The most recent one I've been playing Wintermoor Tactics Club on the PS4 a fun new indie game and the load screens in between rooms started taking 20-30 seconds. You're doing a lot of moving in between rooms so you might only be in a room for 2 seconds before going to the next and each door you would get hit with this 20-30 second load screen. I was about to stop playing it even though I was enjoyed it. I had played around 4-5 hours and almost 45 minutes or so of that was loading screens. So I reached out to the developer on twitter and said hey I'm really enjoying your game but the load times are so unbearable that I might stop playing are there any plans for a patch. They quickly responded and said yes it is a known issue and they were working on a patch but they also had a quick fix for me. They told me to every hour or so save the game and completely close out of it and go back in and sure enough that fixed it and the load times are down to like 3-5 seconds.

It's nice getting some immediate feedback and assistance straight from a developer which would be unlikely to get from a big company just due to the overwhelming number of messages they get.
