Days Gone

Fun game. I came down with covid over the holidays, so I couldn't visit family, and passed a ton of time playing through this.

Re: What Are You Playing? (January 2023)

after all these years still HBS Battletech. Currently with the Roguetech mod
also installed Europa Universalis IV a week or so ago. Only played a little bit

and on my Piboy DMG and Linux virtual machine with retropie installed (and rsync keeping the save games available to both devices so I can play on either and pick up where i left off) I recently replayed Phantasy Star 1, Golden Axe Warrior, and have started Phantasy Star 2

It's fantastic. It's a very underrated game and a personal favorite of mine. Also, OldBoy it's free PlayStation Plus Collection game. I hope you downloaded it from there.

I'm currently playing A Short Hike. I actually beat it last night, but I'm going to go trophy hunting now. I'm also playing God of War PS4 version.

You didn't have to download all of them. You just had to add them to your library. They're yours forever if you add them to your library and have a Plus subscription.

There's a whole thread about it. You essentially have to take down a horde of hundreds of zombies by yourself in some sections. It's really fun.

Re: What Are You Playing? (January 2023)

Days Gone is pretty divisive, although Iím not sure how much of that was the way the game was at launch versus the significantly polished version after tons of patches.

I played the rougher hewn version and generally enjoyed it, though I acknowledge some of the gripes (especially the repetitive, try-too-hard dialogue). My biggest gripe is the same one I had with Ghost of Tsushima; itís just so big that it feels like the first game in a franchise plus its sequel crammed into one. I was pretty exhausted by the time I got to the final stretch, not that it stopped me from platinuming it.

I havenít played anything so far this year, but Iím expecting that to change this week. No idea what itís going to be, though! Probably Gotham Knights, Sonic Frontiers, or maybe Last of Us Part I.

Re: What Are You Playing? (January 2023)

I only played the polished version after picking it up on Black Friday for $19.99, but it was very buggy when it released. I think all the problems with the day 1 release version hurt sales and that's why they're not making a sequel. I really enjoyed the final product though. Running around and taking out hordes of zombies was really, really fun.

It kind of feels like a third-person Far Cry, at least on the normal setting. Has a light survival aspect to it, but I've never really felt like it was a struggle. And yeah, the zombie hordes can be wild.

Re: What Are You Playing? (January 2023)

My son and his wife came to visit for the holidays and over the last five days he played through Horizon Zero Dawn (PS4). He'd never played it before and wanted to do the main story. He did a few side quests and whatnot but mainly stuck to the missions. Completed it in under 42 hours at level 41.

I watched most of it... so I thought I'd add it here.

He can't wait until he graduates from college, get's an adult job, and get a PS5. Nice to know he has his priorities straight.

Just give it a try and see if you like it. Read the thread on it. A lot of people enjoyed it.

Picked my Switch back up and spent a couple hour working through the purple streamer in Paper Mario and the Origami King.

Öand it was The Last of Us Part I! Got to the end credits today. Hoping to play through Left Behind and hopefully score a platinum in the next few days.

Leaning towards Sonic Frontiers or Goat Simulator III next.
