Definitely missing not having Spiderman on Xbox. Although I dipped into May's game budget today to get Jade Empire. Monster Hunter World is on Gamepass now so finally got that downloaded. Next step is to download Doom (2016). 60 gigs on my shit internet should take a couple of days by itself.


Max, yeah that's suprising. Most people talk about it like it's GOTY/The Second Coming of Geralt of Rivia.

Interesting that you are not as impressed as most with this game.  When I hear people talking about it it is as if it is a masterpiece.

Finished the main game of Spiderman.  A very good game that misses in various areas.  There are too many repeated quests in this game.  Go to an area, fight wave after wave of enemies. Rinse and repeat.  Combat is interesting overall.  And eventually, I got to the point where I felt I wasn't just mashing buttons.  Most of the boss fights were good and the story was standard superhero fare.  Ultimately this is a good game that really didn't excel in any one area.

Getting near the end of God of War.  Not too thrilled with the combat, as it relies on a flash system to tell you if an attack is unblockable, will break your guard, or not, but about half the time the flash doesn't come until after the attack is already hitting you, and a lot of blockable attacks are undodgeable, meaning you get punished either way for guessing wrong.  Lots of attacks that should be blockable aren't for no reason, and lots of attacks that shouldn't be blockable are (why am I able to block ground shockwaves with a shield?).  I've currently taken out 4 Valkyries which are optional bosses and have interesting movesets, but they are some of the most problematic in regards to how the combat is "supposed to work" as above. The exploration has been very good for the most part, with a lot of treasures shown but without any obvious way of getting to them, hence needing to investigate and solve some puzzles.  The lore has been solid regarding the 9 realms, but the main story has taken some somewhat unrealistic turns in the Kratos/Atreus dynamic that I'm still waiting to see get resolved.

Cowboy Bebop is going to be a live-action Netflix series. I am totally unsure how I feel about this.

Based on what they did to Death Note you guys are in good hands.

*sbnvl*

Nah...to hell with that.

You don't have to do base building to finish the game.  I followed the minutemen quest line and I hate base building.  The minimal is really not that bad.  But if you play any of the other factions I don't think there is any base building.

In other news, I have started a Zero BL2 playthrough.

I loved Rogue One.  It might be my favorite Star Wars movie.

You're good people.
Cookie given! :)

Heading to see Shazam tomorrow morning. It looks fun, and hopefully it will be!

So I got so close to the end of the main quest in Fallout 4. I'm almost there. And then, it wants to make me do base-building bullshit. I've ignored it the whole game for a reason. Jokes on them, I'm not going to play it any further. I'll just look up the ending on youtube or something and delete it.

Monster Hunter World. Anyone play/played it? It's free now on Xbox Game Pass, so I have it downloading. Probably take a day for that. I've heard alot of good things about it.

It's pretty fun. Grindy as fuck, so if you don't like the "kill a thing to wear its body as armor so you can kill a bigger thing so you can wear its body as armor so you can kill a thing..." circle of life, it's probably not for you. Also, if you dislike silly anime-style oversized weapons, it may not be for you (I manage to grimace and bear it and use the least offensive-looking weapons I can). Other than that - the world is pretty, there's a bazillion challenging things to fight, it's apparently shitloads of fun to co-op (I only solo'd it), the dress-up is fun, etc.
