  • Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night (Switch) was scratching an itch for a while, given how long it's been since a 2D Castlevania came out. By the end it felt a little too long with warp points too far apart and upgrades requiring too much grinding. It…
  • I've been piddling around with breather games after Persona 5 and settled on The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Switch). Link's Awakening was my go-to Game Boy game for long car rides throughout my childhood and still easily in the top half of b…
  • I played The Executioner (PC) today and am just baffled. It's the most unsatisfying game I've played in a long time. If I knew it ended at chapter 1 and was 3 hours long I never would have bought it, and the number of typos and minor bugs in this sh…
  • My brother picked up Streets of Rage 4 (PS4) for us to play couch co-op. I think it was exactly what we wanted. Fun, short, maybe a little too easy but my bro gets frustrated fast when we lose in games so it might have been for the best. And for …
  • I was in the mood for a turn-based game and played Pokemon Shield (Switch) this week. It's tough playing this right after Iceborne and Greedfall, two games where companies are trying to make the best game possible on their respective budgets. Shield…
  • I did end up playing Iceborne like a crazy person, hitting MR100 to fight the last monster, then doing Safi afterward because I thought it was meant to be done in all super endgame gear, but it's not. Also, succeeding on 2 raids was enough to make …
  • Rolled credits on Monster Hunter World: Iceborne (PS4) last weekend. It's extremely frustrating to play most of the time, but then it feels so good when a monster finally dies. I cuss at the screen nonstop while playing this. I did all the main miss…

  • I'm so glad Disco Elysium (PC) didn't fly under my radar. Suppose I have Steam to thank for that. Outstanding writing and a special game. Looking back, I've played several games lately with either a great story or great writing or both -- this, Oute…
  • There was a stretch around the middle to middle-end of The Outer Worlds (PS4) where I wasn't very engaged and found the game on the dull side, but the ending pulled me back into it and left me wanting more. If Monarch were shorter (or denser) and qu…
  • I feel like I've been slowly picking at The Longest Five Minutes (Switch) for months, but that could be because the ending sequence had me clicking through 1000 text windows often containing 6 or fewer words, and rewatching flashbacks within flashba…
  • I saw Kingdom Come: Deliverance (PC) in my Steam library and was in a patient enough mood to play it. I'd read how 'love it or hate it' it is and figured I'd play it a bit and just quit if it got annoying, but it was hard to put down once I got into…
  • My brother and I finished Borderlands 3 (PS4) tonight. Me as FL4K and him as Zane. This is my favorite Borderlands game and I'm looking forward to replaying it with different characters at some point. Technically, it's a bit of a mess with loading a…
  • God of War (PS4) somehow went under my radar last year, and a friend recommended it to me this summer. It was an outstanding game. I'd go so far as to call it flawless for what it aimed to do, and I completed all of the optional content/bosses. It l…
  • I was in the mood for a CRPG and blitzed through Torment: Tides of Numenera (PC) last week. I suppose I still consider Planescape my favorite video game ever, and this succeeded as a spiritual successor in that the writing and creativity were outsta…
  • My brother and I are playing BL3 on PS4 and all we've seen so far are stuttering and slowdown caused by pulling up the menu. I assume it's because we're playing couch co-op, but it's very disruptive when one of us opens the menu while the other is t…
  • I started Fire Emblem: Three Houses (Switch) while on vacation in August, then picked it back up when my FF14 sub ended a couple weeks ago. It was one of those rare games that was less than the sum of its parts for me. The story, lore, tactical comb…
  • Played Gears 5 (Xbox One) couch co-op with my brother. We enjoyed it as we enjoy all the Gears games. Maybe the scions with a dropshot were more accurate and psychic than they needed to be, and with the split screen we kept struggling to see where t…
  • My brother gave me a 60 day card for Final Fantasy XIV for my birthday in preparation for Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers (PC). He said with 60 days I could play it slower and try not succumbing to addict-like behaviors while subbed. I failed in t…
  • My brother wanted to replay Borderlands 2 (PS4) co-op before the new one comes out. This is at least my 4th time playing it, and this run was the least fun for me. I didn't enjoy Mecromancer as much as the other characters I've used, and my brother …
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 (PS4) is an impressive game technically, and I feel for all the time and effort put into making it, but the UI is absolute garbage and I can see why none of my friends who played it in 2018 made it very far before quitting. …
  • I picked up Rainbow Skies (PS4), knowing it was going to be a slow, long journey to the end. I enjoyed it for a while, but once I bumped the difficulty up to where enemies always got the first turn, the pace grinded to a near halt. I stubbornly kept…
  • I was bored earlier this month and played Into the Breach (PC) a couple times. I'm not really a fan and don't even remember why I picked it up. I should have played FTL instead.
  • It was added while I was around for the free login campaign. The main impact I saw was hunt parties coordinating S rank spawns across worlds, which was kinda cool. I'll probably only use it to price shop when buying expensive items on the market boa…
  • The Council (PC) was interesting. I can't say I understood all the puzzles I solved, and I failed the game's most important puzzle because I got confused by an upside-down image, which annoys me because I don't think that was intentional. The voi…
  • I ordered the physical release of West of Loathing (Switch) as an In Memory of Macstorm purchase, since it was the last game he recommended online and I did play about one indie title per year on his recommendation. It's a hilarious game, though I'd…
  • Far Cry 5 (PS4) confirmed that gameplay trumps story for me. Playing it right after AC Odyssey, I couldn't help noticing how great the writing, characters, and story were, but there weren't enough hooks in the open world to keep me engaged. I left a…
  • I finished Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (PS4) a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed it, though the decision to roll the credits 2/3 of the way through the game so people can feel like they finished it without touching the grindy third act ca…
  • Moonlighter (PC) was a quick-paced little thing. Given how basic it is, being relatively fast and short worked in its favor, and the shopkeep aspect worked well to break up the dungeon crawling. It was a fun indie game but not a lot going on to make…
  • I got Civilizationed out during V, accepting that it wasn't as fun as other 4X games I was playing, and every game in the series is the same. But there's a visceral joy to building real world cities with historical tech and murdering real world lead…
