What are you playing? (May 2021)
 
Iím watching my wife play New Pokťmon Snap as I write this.

Iím not sure what all is on the docket for me this month. I know for sure that Iíll be playing NieR: Replicant, which finally arrived after getting misrouted, although I havenít started it yet.

I donít have anything preordered for May, but I know I have a flood on the way. Now that Iím vaccinated, Iím planning on visiting family near the end of the month, and thereís a stockpile of birthday and Christmas presents waiting for me. So some the stuff that you were playing 6 or 7 months ago, I finally get to take a crack at!

And if thereís a lull between Replicant and Belated Christmas, maybe Iíll give Returnal a shot?

I am trying to platinum Yakuza: Like a Dragon before Resident Evil 8 comes out this week, but I don't think that's going to happen. Although, I did at least figure out that taking the chicken, the chimp, and the roomba into stockholder meetings is a good way to make money fast.

Thanks to the previous thread, I’m replaying the Uncharted Trilogy. :)

Just finished Assasin’s Creed Syndicate and the DLC. I was torn on whether to try something different or doing another AC because there was a re-learning curve after I hadn’t played one in years. But Odyssey was on sale, so that’s probably up next.

AC Valhalla. Holy crap this is way better than Odyssey. Story is typical revenge right now, Combat is Satisfying and Exportation really fun. I can see this being one of my favorite AC games.

I finished the plat on Control, and now for some reason I'm playing Wet (2009). Just a random PS3 game plucked from my backlog. We'll see if I can tolerate it long enough to plat it, lol

:sad:

Iím a little ways into Odyssey and feeling pretty lost because itís so different from Syndicate. Iíll stick with it, though.

Playing KOTOR (going to try and go Dark Side) and Resident Evil 4 (Both on PC).

Haven't played KOTOR since my original playthroughs on my Xbox. I also picked up KOTOR 2 since they were in sale via Steam.

Playing RE4 on PC made me realize how perfect the controls on the Wii were for this game.

That's why I'm playing through again. It will be interesting to see what's new/same.

Just finished Genesis Noir on Game Pass. That was different, but nothing I would recommend or ever play through again.

It seemed like it would be right up my alley and I found it incredibly boring and didn't make it past an hour or so.

Played and finished Resident Evil Village this month.

Also been continuing to play The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel IV. I'm 105 hours into it, but I'm nearing the end of the game finally.

I've also started back my play of Final Fantasy VI which had been on pause for a while. Roughly 18 hours in at this point.

And today I started Nocturne: Shin Megami Tensei III HD Remaster, never played the original version on the PS2.

Earlier in the month I finished:
https://cimg0.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...542d03bfc7.png
I played the PS4 remaster. I've been playing off-and-on over the last year. This is a pretty easy game to do that with since each case works as a little standalone story. And speaking of Assassin's Creed, I started:
https://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/dvdtalk...500721ad00.png
I think I'm going to be at it for a while :lol: I haven't played everything in the AC series (last one was Black Flag). I'm glad that the insta-fail sneaking missions are gone. Already I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed at all the side quests, and think I'm going to start skipping some so I don't get too waylaid from the main story. Being more of a RPG fan, I don't mind that this has the series going more in that direction (I can see the comparisons to Witcher 3, with a bit of Far Cry).

AC: Odyssey is something that I bought digitally and will get around to eventually. But certainly I'll have to play a few games in between this and that.

It would've been better as an actual movie, than the "game" they decided to make instead.
