I think Iím positioned well to platinum Persona 5 Royal before the monthís out. (The in-game calendar is nearly at mid-December!) I also just started the Hellblade sequel, and I definitely donít anticipate having trouble finishing that this month either.

After thatÖ? Watch_Dogs 2, which Iím very late to the party for, and one of several Persona 5 spinoffs. I picked up FF7 Rebirth to burn off some expiring Best Buy credit, but coming off another massive JRPG, I think itíll be a bit before I fire that up. I guess Walkabout Mini Golf for the PSVR2 is another possibility too.

Iím not planning on buying any new releases for June, but if thereís a sale on something compelling, weíll see.

Currently Playing:
Sand Land (PS5) (about 10 hours in and this definitely feels like a B-Tier game of which we don't get a lot of anymore but I'm enjoying it so far)

Up Next (not sure which order yet):
Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes (PS5)
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door Remake (Switch)

I tried playing Cat Quest 2 shortly after it came out which was real close to when I had beaten Cat Quest 1 and I got burnt out on it after a few hours and put it down but then played through it a few months ago and really enjoyed it. I think I just needed some distance from the first game since they are very similar. Looking forward to 3 coming out in August.

Not yet, and I don't usually play video games (other than Civ3 or the occasional atari/early Nintendo game)--but my daughter invited me to spend the night at her house and play Baldur's Gate 3 with her. It's sort of a belated Mother's Day thing, and I'm so excited about it! It sounds way more fun than going to a restaurant. She even said if I like it, she has an extra PS5 I can borrow (I use a really low end chromebook for my computer--fine for posting, but probably not gaming.) Idk. She seems to think I'll like it a lot, especially the character making.

I just ordered this today from Amazon and received it tonight. I looked it up after you mentioned it and was intrigued by it. Seems like an easy but long platinum.

Recently Finished: Sand Land (PS5) (the last half really dragged after a really fun first 10 or so hours. My final playtime was like 25 hours with doing most of the side quests. The forced stealth sequences i hated with a passion but the vehicular combat and traversal was fun)

Currently Playing: Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (Switch)

Re: What are you playing? (June 2024)

I finished up Hellblade II yesterday. Startlingly gorgeous graphics aside, it generally felt like a backslide from the first game. The narrative didn't do much to draw me in compared to the original, the puzzles were kind of annoying, and combat remained no great shakes. My wife hated the voices in Senua's head so much that she'd have to leave the room whenever I played. I didn't have that reaction, but they did seem a lot less integral to the narrative than they did before.
