Luigi's Mansion 3

Who knew sucking and blowing could be so fun.
Controls can take some getting used to but this is otherwise another feel good Nintendo game.

Super Mario Bros 3

I'm making my way through the mainline 2D Mario games for the first time but quickly gave up on SMB2 as I didn't really enjoy the throwing mechanic. SMB3 is so much better and easily the best of the series that I've played so far. I find these 2D Mario games pretty difficult though. Thanks fuck for save states.

Tetris 99

I still haven't placed better than 2nd. I can't help but play this every day though. I will win one day!

Finished The Outer Worlds. Started out a bit slow and perhaps too much like a Fallout/Mass Effect hybrid to really stand out as something unique, but eventually it won me over - so much good stuff in it and I would say it's my Goty at the moment. Also, Afterparty. Perhaps a bit overwritten and not really a game, but I had a really good time with it. As a forty-something it was fascinating to go through a story that's a hilarious but also somewhat poignant portrait of modern youth's anxieties and fears.

Going through World of Light atm. Nearing the end. Very fun.



Ditch it and move onto Cross instead ;)

P.s. Is Radical Dreamers worth playing?
Mate I've been replaying Cross for years. It's my favourite game ever. Already beat that earlier this year, too :p
-
I beat Magus, he took me two tries... Marle's Haste spell is op as fuck, seems like it lasts forever.

As for Radical Dreamers, I didn't play it :(

just started File 5 of Astral Chain.

i'm enjoying the game but the controls/camera are a bit awkward. also the visual design of the game makes it it really hard to make things out and keep track of what the hell is going on during combat.

Trailmakers.

If you liked Banjo Nuts & Bolts (there are dozens of us) this is the spiritual successor. It has all the jank handling, all the self-imploding physics and there is a horn that sounds like a banjo. I haven't been able to put it down for days.

You can build way more than in Banjo too. I've replicated both of the JLG telehandling forklifts I use at work and am working on a Skid Steer. All the hinges can be assigned functions so I made them control the same as the real word counterparts. The outriggers can be deployed, the up/down/boom/tilt functions are all there. the only thing I forgot was the lean functionality.





It's in 1.0 right now and rough in spots but it really is a blast if you like this kind of thing.

Good game and as a PC purist this the only game I've played that needs a controller besides racing games so I bought a cheap controller that goes under the brand name EasySMX.

18$, decent reviews, and has vibration.

Damn I tried on the weekend to go back and play the remaining side-quests in Breath of the Wild and just remembered how much I didnt enjoyed the game. Was a pain just to get out of Hyrule Castle, then I was decimated everytime by the Guardians, I forgot how to teleport to towers 🤦‍♂️ . Then always those red ninjas that give you bananas appearing all the time. Went to leave the Slate at the start point of the game to start the DLC. Couldnt last a minute with that thing. Too lazy to restart the game just to relearn alll the quirks I think Ill just let it be until BOTW comes next year XD. I shamefor me because I always try to 100% any Zelda entry.

Ok, I just finished up One Piece: World Seeker last night. Great idea, great concept but very flawed execution. Like I said, the one thing that World Seeker gets right is exploration. It's a lot of to swing around and explore with Luffy. It feels like you've travelled miles to get from one completely different town to another. And collecting anything you see makes item gathering missions a breeze. Fast travel helps of if it's wasn't for the fact that loading times take forever. Story-wise, it's a nice little plot with the typical One Piece quirky-ness, gets cutscene heavy towards the end and kinda delivers a genuiely dramatic ending.

Now that being said, it's kinda sad that most of the game features voiceless dialogue, like I mentioned before combat is awkward and not very well executed. If the enemies gang up on you, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. Unless you max yourself out and have the best items equipped, regular encounters can be genuielly frustrating (snipers on rooftops make city exploration frustrating). Boss fights are actually pretty easy save for the final boss.

Had the combat been a little less rougher and the stealth aspects (enemies will not spot you unless you stand point blank) really well made, this would almost be the most ambitious One Piece game out there. Hopefully, they'll fix it in a sequel, because the adventure aspect is spot on.

Tekken 7 PC after getting addicted again to the drug called "holy shit, why is it THAT easy to put mods in Unreal Engine Games". Loving it.

Not even an hour of the free weekend of Just Cause 4 on Steam... but it made me reinstall JC3 because that was a pretty one XD

I’m actually starting to get into fortnite. I only play it with my 6 year old, but I’m totally seeing what the appeal is.

playing with a kid is hilarious because while I start to take it seriously and am like “there they are! Get to cover, quick! Shoot them!!!” Etc he just starts dancing lmao😂 im like “what the hell are you doing they’re shooting at you!”

amazing how calm he is playing it as well. He is as good as some of you nerds I would like to think, and he doesn’t panic when taking people down, which he can do no problem. He is 6 next week, I am so proud of him.

some of his friend don’t even know how to navigate a menu...

Taking a good break from borderlands 3. Got bored with Outer Worlds and returned it before I could finish.

Decided to jump back into Apex Legends. Haven't played since the cluster fuck of that first battle pass. Bit shocked how much the map has changed. Fun game in bursts.

Also trying out Stardew Valley. Never played games like this before so it's different. Really enjoy it after I smoke.

I've started Assassin's Creed Odyssey, got the Gold Edition for 45€ in Playstation's Deal of the Week sale which isn't too bad in my opinion, especially since the DLC is supposed to be quite good.
Been enjoying it so far, playing very slowly on nightmare difficulty, exploration mode and most of the HUD turned off. I love the ancient greece setting and the world seems to be pretty detailed so far.

I've been playing mostly Warframe on the Nintendo Switch. I didn't know about the game before it and I got hooked. It just had it's one year anniversary and I realized that I spent over 800 hours on a single game in one year. Haven't done something like that for a long time.

Problem is that I have a humongous backlog build up for the Switch. I have Witcher 3 (never played it before), Astral Chain, FE, DQ11, Atelier Ryza just sitting there. And this is just a sample, listing less than half of physical Switch games I purchased the last 3 months. I guess it's a good problem, but still a problem. At least I'm having a ton of fun.

One observation: I refrained from playing Bloodstained until it was patched. Patch 1.03 seemed to fix most of the major problems so I finally booted it up. But woah, the game sure feels a lot less polished than my favorite portable Castlevania's. Then it crashed upon opening a book. Back to the freezer it goes until more patches come. Somewhat disappointing.

How long did it take you to complete Luigi? And is there any replay value?

With collecting all gems it took me roughly around 25hours to beat.

I think the replay value comes from if you enjoy the MP part.

Astral Chain - I really need to get a pro controller for this, not enjoying as much only because of the joycons.
Outer Worlds - Still my first play through and enjoying it. Trying to do as many missions as I can.
Need For Speed Heat - Starting tonight after work!
