    2018 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    Put a few hours into Far Cry 5. Strong starter, but the narrative fizzles almost immediately. In part, it’s the curse of an open world. Sure, I’ll get to that cult thing...5 hours from now, after I explore. And do that other thing that leads to that other thing. Oh, shit, now I’m being mauled by a bear. What was I doing again? It definitely feels like they backed off of really saying anything, too. The gameplay loop is still booking me. I was ready for another Far Cry, so I can’t say that I’m not having a blast, because I am. Could have been more, though.

    This Weather Sucks

    Yesterday at 6pm, it was 60 degrees here. As I type this, I just came in from cleaning an inch plus of snow from my car. Gah! The (main) roads look clear, at least...

    Spec Ops: The Line is free on Humble for the next 2-ish days. Always wanted to play this one and have never gotten around to it. Story is always well spoken of.

    MARCH 2018 WRESTLING PHOTOS THREAD.

    I swear that, just for a second, I thought someone ‘shopped Rusev into the pic.
  5. Loads of ‘90/91 WWC tv popping up on this channel. I know what I’ll be watching for the next few weeks. If the person who runs it posts here, thanks for this as well as the Continental. Always jazzed for territory footage I didn’t have access to at the time...

    Just got my first Platinum trophy (though I’ve 1000/1000 a few games on Xbox). Finished 100% of Cat Quest in a dozen hours or so. Fun, little 3/4 view Zelda-like. Not difficult. Not particularly deep. Fun all the same. I finished the story at level 90 or so, so I just ran the hardest dungeon over and over to grind out the last 9 levels.

    Snow never materialized here in central PA. Forecasts went from a dusting to 12” back to *maybe* 3” in the last 24 hours. Guess it ended up moving more east than they thought. Be safe out there, y’all, regardless of the weather.

    Bloodborne is downloading. At the speed PSN gives me these days, I'll be saying the same hours from now... My girlfriend also bought me a copy of Super Mario World this week. I had a Genesis growing up (as did all of my friends), so while I've played it, I've certainly never played through it. Looking forward to that. Also also, I played some No Man's Sky. A year removed from the drama, for a game I hadn't hyped as much as most...I'd say that I'm enjoying myself. It's just a really chill game for me to check in on when I'm feeling stressed. No idea if I'm making progress. I'm just bebopping around the universe, scanning shit and trying to learn alien languages.

    I’ve almost bought Bloodborne about a dozen times now. My restraint (and knowing how generally poor I am at that type of game) has paid off.

    Blitzed through the AC:Origins Hidden Ones DLC. If you love the main game, this is a few more hours of it. I guess the next DLC pack will be a larger expansion. Comes out in March. I have no doubt that whatever game I’m working on will be shoved to the side immediately when it hits. Will I finally start Nier:Automata now? Only time will tell...

    1000/1000 in Assassin’s Creed:Origins. Will be starting the first DLC soon as well. Had to grind the last few red pot kills and the “poison a lvl 35+ dude, then kill him with your torch” achievements, but everything else came through natural gameplay. Maybe my favorite AC game ever made. 2 is right there with it, though. I’m ready to move on to Nier:Automata and I’m still playing a lot of XB1 PUBG as well.
  12. First thing I saw when I booted up the Twitch stream? CHEEX Not sure what it says about me that I instantly subscribed to the channel...

    2017 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    Ended up buying a PS4 today, mostly because I want to play Nier:Automata. GameStop had the $100 off like everyone else and threw in a $50 gift card to boot. Couldn't pass it up. Whether or not I *need* a PS4 or even have time to play more games is up for debate, but there you go...

    Brutal Legend is currently free from Humble Bundle. You've got until Wednesday to claim it, I think?

    Borrowed CoD:WWII from work. Played through the campaign over 6-7 hours. It's...fine. Not good. Not bad. I prefer the over the top crazy near future stuff that they had been doing, though. This is just a pretty standard Band of Brothers rehash. That can be an effective story, but Call of Duty is probably not where you're going to find nuance. Still playing through (and loving) AC:Origins. Just wanted to actually finish some 2017 stuff before everyone goes into GOTY mode.
