Well, we're finally at the end of this tumultuous year.

How are you going to spend the last gaming moments of the year?

I personally spent a few hours on my Total War Warhammer 2 campaign before spending time with some friends for the night.

Conquered all of the eastern lands, confederated my second faction, and now leading a war against the Dark Elves.

To be honest, having bought it recently, and played it for about 30 hours now, I think the game is a liiiiitttlleeee overrated.

Great game, dont get me wrong, but the user reviews on steam seemed to make it the penultimate Total War game.

Regardless, Happy New Years Eve and a Happy New Years NeoGaf!

I'm honestly going to miss gaming as much as I have this year. Starting a new job next Monday and gaming will be far less possible after then.

Thank you for such making quarantine far more enjoyable this year.

Stuffing my face full of pizza and watching lords of the ring trilogy extended version while checking out Hades. Not a bad way to go.

The entire trilogy?

Man, that's something I've wanted to do. I should really have a weekend for that.

Also, HADES is worth the price tag. I dislike roguelikes, that game made it work. Hopefully you enjoy it as well.

Enjoy yourself!

Yep. It's like a yearly thing i do. This time I pushed it this far into the last week as I had family over. And so far Hades has been legit. Loving it. Can't wait to try more!

We're having a few friends over so probably Mario Kart 8 at some point. I did beat BOTW last night though and that was pretty awesome. What a great game.

Mostly trying to finish up Yakuza 6 but these last few troublr missions are total bullshit.

Other than that might play some Samsho or hit up fightcade. Might squeeze in some Rogue Company too.

I'm almost done with Cyberpunk 2077, I've dove all the side missions related to the main characters and now I have to see the different endings. 60hours in. Many gigs and NCPD activities left though.

Just finished Death Stranding. Will probably spend some more time doing left over side quests or going to spots in the map that look interesting

Son's birthday is today. So there's alot going on today, lol.

Hope we do a seafood boil, (we did one recently that was amazing. So, so good if done right.) get some cake and ice cream. Been trying to get the family together to do some Just Dance. Just have some silly fun.

As far as gaming, I have to fight over the PS5 with my youngest son. The only way I might get some gaming in is on PC or hook up my One S.

If I do PC: Terraria, State of Decay 2, CrackDown? (need to see if thats part of Play Anywhere. Might finally play ShadowRun Returns.

Completed for the second time Phantasy Star Nova on PS Vita yesterday. Still thinking of what I should play next, maybe Shiren the Wanderer on Vita.

Aerial America on the Smithsonian Channel is on right up until midnight so I shall continue watching that, as I have been all day. On my other TV, I shall be continuing my playthrough of Crackdown 1. Still so much fun.

I plan on eating Chinese food and watching 2001 Space Odyssey (got the UHD disk for Christmas). I've already promised myself I won't be in a similar situation next year.

We're on to Return of the King tonight, already did the pizza the other day.

I watched TTT yesterday (doing the book-movie-book-movie-book-movie thing) and didn't like the changes they made.

I can't even remember the books at this point, read them (I'm pretty sure I finished them?) when I was young. I'll say this though, the extended Two Towers isn't worth doing, Fellowship was.

Plenty of CoD:WWII on max volume for a couple of hours, trying to drown out the fireworks outside. All while my dog is shivering under the desk. Worst night of the year for him.

Amazon are about to deliver my copy of Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate. I haven't played any of the Mortal Kombat games since the Megadrive/Genesis days so I'm slightly excited to give this a go...:messenger_beaming:

Since I have to be up at 4am on 1/1/2021, I can't stay up late. I will have some time to get about 2 hours of Cyberpunk 2077 in and then watch a movie before bed.

Genshin Impact and have been playing a lot for the past week. I don’t understand how this game is free. I don’t know why they didn’t pull the easy bait-and-switch paid then F2P or putting the newest map expansion behind a paywall.
