What Are You Playing? (November 2021)

Iím mopping up the last couple of achievements in Far Cry 6 later today.

But as to what the rest of the month holdsÖ? Since Iím done buying new releases for the rest of the year, Iím at long last starting Final Fantasy VII: Intergrade! Thatíll just leave Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE as the only other game in my backlog (with a bunch of asterisks, but whatever).

Not sure what else might be in rotation. Itíll depend on what (if anything?) I get for my birthday or Black Friday sales.

I also ponied up for the Forza Horizon 5 premium add-on and the Animal Crossing DLC for my wife.

Mostly just NHL 22 and GTA Online for me these days.

I installed Unpacking for my wife, and she's pretty obsessed. It's breezy and relaxed...not much in the way of gameplay beyond making sure the things you unpack from boxes are generally where they're supposed to be (you can't just leave a pair of jeans on the floor or salt at the edge of the kitchen counter), but its approach to storytelling is really neat. You learn about who this character is and the course her life takes purely by the things in her boxes. It's on GamePass too.

Star Wars Battlefront II
Just the campaign, as I have no interest playing online.

I took a break from AC Odyssey when my Xbone got bricked, but now I’m back at it. I have a couple bosses left in the main story, so I’m chasing missions to level up.

I've been playing The Forgotten City on Game Pass, and damn, I'm really enjoying it. I have one of the four endings so far, and I plan on going for all of them.

Finished up Far Cry 6 and Metroid Dread this week. Started Blasphemous on Switch, but I don't think I'll stick with that for long. Not sure what I'm going to start on Switch next.

I'm playing Gears 5 on Series X, and am about to start Call of Duty today on PS5.

I originally thought it would be more of a card game, but it's actually just a turn-based jrpg with cards as the aesthetic with a narrator who tells the story. In any case, it's a fun game, albeit a bit too easy most of the time. Reports suggest it's 8-12 hours long depending on play style and how much optional stuff you do... I'm currently about 6 hours in and on Chapter 5.

Kingdoms Of amalur re-reckoning (PS5)

I forgot how massive the map is. Pretty impressed since it was originally for xbox 360 Gen. Love the art style and combat.

Guardians Of The Galaxy (PS5)

Going to focus on this over the weekend. Need more time with it but so far it's looking to be my Game Of the year.

Forza Horizon series

I'm thinking of jumping back into FH3 and 4 while waiting for the 5th to come to Gamepass.

Dumped Blasphemous, and started Axiom Verge 2 on Switch. Although Call of Duty has my full attention these days.

Re: What Are You Playing? (November 2021)

Couldn't play my game yesterday cause Denuvo forgot to pay their domain registration causing it to expire and thus their DRM check couldn't connect to their server to verify.... made all Denuvo "protected" games unplayable all day.

Currently playing Final Fantasy X-2 on PS2. So far I'm having fun with it but I'm still level grinding, getting these dressphere abilities mastered so when I get new ones it won't be so time consuming to master them.
