My Persona 5 Royal-in-realtime plan went gangbusters for, like, a week, and now I’m a full month ahead. Oh well.

I just got prescription inserts for my PSVR2 and used that as an excuse to start Horizon: Call of the Mountain.

I was randomly inspired to pick up Watch_Dogs 2 on eBay, so maybe that’ll be in rotation soon.

I have some Best Buy rewards that expire this month, so I’m sure I’ll be ordering or pre-ordering something. Dunno what yet. FF7: Rebirth, Stellar Blade, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, and Gravity Circuit are some of the top contenders.

Game Pass-wise, my wife is super-excited about Little Kitty, Big City, and I’m sure I’ll give the Hellblade sequel a shot at some point.

Re: What are you playing? (May 2024)

Finally, I can test my own bot that responds to threads created by bots, in an effort to get both bots to talk to each other in an endless loop of Content and Engagement.

Anyway,
I finished up Another Crabís Treasure (PC, Game Pass). I ended up Ďcheatingí and using the assist mode after getting very frustrated with a particular section of the game only to realize that section wasnít the way to the next area but the Ďguní option is hilarious and worth using when youíre sick of a certain boss or two. Itís a really fun game with some excellent challenges and decent platforming to go with it. Itís worth checking out even if you tap out at the early boss fights, because of the overall vibes of the game.

Took about a week break from No Rest For The Wicked (PC, Steam early access), but Iíll be diving back in. First few hours of the game were a bit frustrating but Iíve found my rhythm. However Iím at a part that feels unnecessarily difficult and Iím not sure if the story can progress without getting through it. Regardless, the game is coming along nicely and has a very different vibe from the Ori games. Boss fights so far have been difficult but fair.

Bluey (Xbox, Game Pass) for getting my daily achievements. Game is cute, too. Will need to find another Ďsimpleí game soon.

A Little to the Left (Xbox, Game Pass) for the daily tidy, which is oddly satisfying. Still need to do a quick speed run of the full game without hints or skips in order to get the last two achievements. DLC was a nice addition with added difficulty, and worth the price, in my opinion.

Will start up Hellblade 2 (PC, Game Pass) as soon as itís out later this month.

I'm about 25 hours into the new updated version of Stardew Valley. I'm on the last day of fall in my first year.

Re: What are you playing? (May 2024)

Well they announced today that they're shutting down Disney Sorcerer's Arena in 3 months (different publisher than Speedstorm and Dreamlight Valley and they've been going on for 3 years). I decided after DSA (which was after speedstorm) that I wouldn't do another live service game again, so at least now I'm only down to speedstorm.

Re: What are you playing? (May 2024)

Grabbed me for some reason, so doing this. Indika (kinda the same thing) is next. I've really gotten into story-driven (walk and click "walking simulators") game experiences. They usually take 2-3 hours to finish.




I also have to finish the DLC for Dreamlight Valley, they just released part II and a new character and I haven't even finished part I. Star Path (limited time) is first though.

I played about an hour of ff7ri and I liked it so far and I like those more linear games, but I'm a good stopping point and there's too much going on with DSS and DDV. I'll most likely finish that after WHYDF and Indika. I still have to finish Marver's Midnight Suns' DLC.

I should really start Kingdom Hearts before Disney Sorcerer's Arena ends 7/31 just to be playing 4 Disney games at once.

I don't have the reflexes anymore to play most games today but I came across a grey market version of Civilization II that runs on modern Windows so I'm playing that. Nice memories.

Re: What are you playing? (May 2024)

Bought LAD infinite wealth on a whim as it was 30 percent off on steam and I wanted to play pokemon and animal crossing and after 30 minutes (got it close to bedtime) it is one of the best games I've ever played. I will never again play a game that doesn't grab me right away because there's games this this out there. I'm dropping everything other than speedstorm and dreamlight valley and focusing on this.

Getting near the end of Dave the Diver I think. Really fun although it has dragged a bit in the second half of the game.

Yep I was right at the end and finished it up. I'll go back and do more side stuff later down the line. I also played about an hour of Animal Well (got 5 eggs) and it was enough to know it's not for me. I get what it's going for the mystery exploration with no help or explanation but I don't care for that in games and the platforming was more frustrating than fun. Going to move on to Tales of Kenzara (PS5)

Fallout Shelter

It came loaded on my car's screen but I had no interest until watching the Fallout TV Series on Amazon. So I started it a few weeks then discovered it was FREE on XBOX so I have 2 games going right now. I'm new to Fallout and this style of game. It's been fun though.

Re: What are you playing? (May 2024)

Wrapped up Tales of Kenzera: Zau (PS5) and got the platinum. Pretty breezy metroidvania. Nothing amazing but solid enough.

Not really looking to play something super long at the moment so going to knock out Read Only Memories: NEURODIVER (PS5)next.

Re: What are you playing? (May 2024)

I gave up story games. Gonna 100% Dreamlight Valley and keep playing Speedstorm and that's the only gaming time I have. Not buying anything for a long while. I have a wishlist that I will snatch at 75%+ but that's about it.

I finished up Kenzera over the weekend as well. Haven't gone back to platinum and I don't think I will. Very well-made game, though. Nice and compact 10 hours.

Biggest complaint is the walking speed when you're in the house. Why so slow??
