What Are You Playing? (JANUARY 2024)

Happy New Year!
Started the new year off with Mario



Rotating through the month







I subbed to Ubisoft Plus for a month so just trying to get my moneys worth. Definitely gonna buy Avatar when it goes on sale. I'll get through Mirage though as that a short one.

Re: What Are You Playing? (JANUARY 2024)

Actively in-progress:


I'm about to start track 8 of 12. I'm hoping to be finished by this time next week.


We're in the home stretch, having finished 2 of the 3 arena races to unlock the Sky Cup Grand Prix or whatever it's called.

After this...? I'll either fire up Sonic Origins Plus again to start on Sonic 2, or I'll go for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III campaign. I have a pretty sizeable post-Christmas/birthday/Black Friday backlog, so it's anyone's guess after that.

I know my wife wants to check out the Them's Fightin' Herds story mode, such as it is. Our next couch co-op game might be Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, with maybe some Them's Fightin' Herds battles scattered around in there.

I played about 6 hours of Tears of the Kingdom and can not get into it all. All the gameplay revolves around building stuff and I have zero interest in that in games. Doesn't feel like a Legend of Zelda game at all.

First completed game of 2024 is in the books! LEGO 2K Drive. So I’m in that elite 2.74% of Xbox players who’ve gotten their grubby mitts on the Sky Cup.

I've put about 60 hours into it over the summer and only got through two of the four... oh, I can't remember what they are called in this game (the equivalents of the Divine Beasts) and I kinda fell out of it. Too much building and weapon combos, and the three levels of terrains... I want to finish it, but it's overwhelming on where to go. I wish it were a little more linear (or less complicated).

Long story short, I feel you on this one - I really want to like but can't. Maybe I'll pick it back up again this summer.

Re: What Are You Playing? (JANUARY 2024)

Last time I played a game was August 8th [was busy Marathon Binging unseen DISNEY + (Marvel, Star Wars, Netflix Marvel & Orville) before the password crackdown ]

Anyway bought myself a SERIES X w/ Diablo IV on November 18 when Target gave a $75 GC. Didn't unbox and connected system until Christmas day with idea of Diablo IV being my first game played after the New Years. Well first game plans changed when I was updating & installing games and I got gifted game from my friend.

So this was my first game played and loved it. Good game , had fun with it. Completed it all with DLC today, maxing out my character and getting full Heroic armor.




up next, bought last week

Re: What Are You Playing? (JANUARY 2024)

I'm still doing my Disney trifecta but I picked up Logiart Grimoire for PC. it's by Jupiter who makes the s series on the Switch. I wasn't expecting much, I just wanted to throw 13 bucks their way so they'd make more pc content. This is the only company who makes picross that just feels right to me.

Well it's taking longer than I thought. About 10 hours in. There's 30x30 puzzles I haven't unlocked yet. This will take a while. I've done just over a third but picross games take longer the more you play because you get larger puzzles. I will definitely 100 percent this one.

Their switch games sell for ten bucks and they take me about 30 hours to complete.

My son and I finally popped in Super Mario Wonder and gave it a go. Got through the first boss/castle.

A very different game… I like it.

Re: What Are You Playing? (JANUARY 2024)

My gaming is about 5-15 years behind everyone else.

-DC Universe Online

-DARKSIDERS III
...I had been avoiding because for some reason I thought it was exclusively a Top Down RPG. It's not. Anyway, I bought it used a couple years and finally loaded it into my XBOX One X. I'm getting used to the gamely and camera and I'm playing on Normal. The 1st boss is kicking my ass so I rage quit the other day because I'm too old for this shit. but I'll go back to it because I LOVE the DARKSIDERS Games.

-Carcassonne

-Star Trek Online
...Downloaded it the other day. I may give a try.

Still working on Dave the Diver. I plan on making a hard switch to the new Prince of Persia when it drops in a couple weeks. Metroidvania style is my favorite genre these days.

Re: What Are You Playing? (JANUARY 2024)

I finished the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III campaign on the PS5 -- my, errr, fourth completed game in the 10 days of 2024 so far.

I'm mildly ashamed to admit that I dropped the difficulty down to Recruit -- the near-non-existent checkpoints on the open combat stages were too maddening for me -- but I did have a good time once I had a few missions under my belt and at a more approachable difficulty.

Needed a break from FFXII, decided to play FFVII for PS1 on my PS2 for as long as my arthritic hands can handle the D pad.

For a change, I decided to play one of my indie games I got last year and started playing Arise (Switch). It's a great little platform with some pretty interesting controls.
