- Been playing Death Stranding! Having a good time; I feel like I've already done so much but I'm not even on Chapter 3 yet lmao
The atmosphere is really neat, and the gameplay is a weird combo of relaxing and stressful. It's one of those games that I like to play between other games since the main gameplay focus is very slow, so I'm making slow progress there.

- Playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, as well. Had it on the Wii U, got it on the Switch because I need a Mario Kart game. I forgot how fun this one is! 200cc is my favorite mode, so I can't wait to get to that after I finish the Mirror Cups!

- Started up Monster Hunter World! This is my first MH game and I'm having a blast. I'm mixing up controls a lot and I'm overwhelmed by tutorials and I feel like a fuckin' video game boomer but it's super fun! I spent like 30 minutes on character creation to try to make one of my OC's haha

- Still have not gone back to Touhou 14 because I'm not in that headspace, nor am I in the headspace for Sukuna

Very cool! Those all sound like pretty good times. If MHW ends up being a nice enough of an experience, I recommend taking a look at past entries too, since those are a lot of fun as well.

i bought octopath traveler like Two Months Ago? and i'm just now sitting down with it and giving it a try

i'm mostly enjoying it mechanically and visually, but my god it is hard to look at the center of the screen sometimes. the bloom is way too strong and it kinda saps the color from things and makes everything unnaturally bright

i picked the apothecary to start with and i'm really enjoying his options in battle! i've got a couple other party members and i'm excited to see what everyone's like

I definitely will! I've heard good things about some of the past entries, especially 4 on the 3DS, so I might go to that one next! Not for a while though; have WAY too big of a game backlog at the moment haha

I probably posted about this back when it was happening but I went through and did 100% in MK8D and was informed after the fact that whatever achievements you complete on 150CC are also applied to the slower speeds below it. I worked my way through all of them from slowest to fastest, one by one because I didn't know that. Though maybe it was for the better I did that cause I was able to learn courses and whatnot.

I've been playing Ring Fit Adventure for the past two weeks. It feels good, but exhausting. It's got pretty basic JRPG mechanics holding together the "combat", except every attack is a small workout routine such as pressing/pulling on the resistance ring in various positions, squats, just a LOT of different moves and I'm still unlocking the basic ones two weeks in. It's exhausting! I'm physically breaking a sweat in just a 20 minute session, drinking ridiculous quantities of water. I play DDR regularly and this is proving to me that it's just not enough compared to a full-body workout! The companion character is pretty alright, a little annoying but sufficiently motivating and his voice isn't bad. The antagonist is hilarious - giant beefcake dragon. He's the boss of every chapter, and each chapter takes a few days to complete - assuming you do one session per day - and they're getting longer. I suspect soon I'll only be seeing him once a week!

Oh yeah, still playing DDR regularly (still sitting around difficulties 11-13) and Warframe (MR18 now). Not much to add to those. I own a Railjack! Railjack needs additional development work. It's fun, though.

I'm also playing Mega Man Battle Network, at the behest of my Mega Man loving gf. She's insisted I play the first one first because it's aged the worst, and wow, the dungeons are kinda something. I feel there's a reason so many people recommend just looking up maps and puzzle solutions - this is almost 80s style game design! Mazy labyrinths with questionable gimmicks limiting your vision and a high encounter rate. The plot is very typical kiddie-shonen, an elementary schooler named Lan and his cool AI companion MegaMan.exe bust viruses and save the web and the city from the evil World Three (WWW for short)... if you saw raocow play either of the Battle Network spinoffs in AtMM, you already know the abridged plot. It's daft but cute, but also surprisingly ahead of its time for a 2001 release - automated cars, web viruses, personal assistant devices, Internet of Things... but then it extrapolates them to very silly and kid-friendly plots, like stopping your network-connected oven from burning down the house by "jacking in" and busting the FireMan.exe virus. Now the battles, those are pretty good! I like the chip system and grid movement, it's neither turn-based nor fully an action title... I'll share more thoughts once I finish it, but it does feel strange going back to a title I passed up when I was 13. Oh well, it's something to learn more about!

Ohhhh this is a series I really have a soft spot for even though I'm not very good at it (I've beaten all of the games at least once, but never done postgame in any of them cause it is NOT easy). There's actually been a fairly recent resurgence of popularity for the series in the past few years. I'm not too sure what it is but I do like to take a little bit of credit for kickstarting getting some traction in the Battle Network subreddit (/r/battlenetwork) a few years back. It's a series I think would really do well to make a comeback these days (preferably not as a stupid mobile game). There really isn't any other series I've played like it in terms of combat. It's such a unique mix of real-time fighting and deck building, it's really fun.

I'd agree with your girlfriend that it's best you start off with 1 because it's a real slog going back to it after playing the later games where they built off that groundwork. I hope you enjoy it, it's a great series!

Been trying to collect all of the Gigantamax formes in Pokemon Sword while the event lasts, doing pretty good so far! In terms of my shiny Dreepy hunt, I've lost track of how many exactly I've hatched, but I wanna say I'm ~250 eggs, nothing so far.
I also pre-ordered the DLC for Sword, super hype for everything included, especially the new Legendaries!




Also uuhhhhhhh if anybody finds a Gigantamax Appletun raid can they shoot me a raid code he's the only one I'm missing

Oof, yeah, I didn't know about that! Ah well, more time with the game is always good, especially with the high quality of all the courses.

Shovel Knight's Explodatorium absolutely destroyed me on the New Game+, so I switched to Plague of Shadows. I feel like I'll never be able to play Plague Knight well (there's so many ways to optimize that I don't think I'll ever master), but I can do it well enough to beat levels, and it's super fun regardless.

Also, Duck Game's single player is way more interesting than I'd been led to believe. Some pretty neat challenges and elaboration on items that you just can't get from the main game. My only issue is jetpack shenanigans - there's no way I'm going to be gold medaling any of the challenges that require the slide-to-jetpack combo. That execution is ridiculous.

I played World of Illusion the other day with my husband. It's kind of a childhood game for me, I remembered it being super charming and fun to play with a friend. Playing it now after all these years... it's ok? It definitely has a lot of quirky charm, and the moments where you need to work together to progress are pretty memorable, plus every level has something new. But it's a bit on the janky side and can waste your time a lot - the mechanic of pulling your partner up with a rope is cute at first but is pretty slow and gets reused a lot without any variation. Other than that, by the end it can be a bit of a chore, with enemies that take multiple hits to kill and not much interesting platforming going on. Also we got softlocked due to glitches not once, but twice, one the same world no less, which forced us to replay earlier segments and reinforced how there's not much reason to play it more than once.

The cool thing though is you get unique levels depending on whether you're playing co-op, alone with Mickey or alone with Donald. But ultimately this game is a lot more memorable as a multiplayer experience.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's been playing Death Stranding in between games.
I played through Arkham Knight recently, getting the full ending was very tedious, mostly because of having to solve all the riddles for it.
Especially since the whole Knightfall part of the ending was just kinda lame.
Otherwise it was pretty fun.

I'm in Chapter 5 in Death Stranding.
Being

separated from BB

has been a pretty neat gameplay challenge. I've actually learned how to sneak away from BTs even after getting spotted by them.
Something goes here sometime.

I recall the award for getting 100% in that game is a batman suit with a gold batman logo on it but you can't even use it in other save files, just run around in your completed game so it's literally useless.

I just finished Ultimate DOOM in Ultra Violence. That is my 3rd run of the game on the Switch version. It was a very fun and challenging ride until a few certain levels of Episode 4 (Namely E4M2 and E4M6. They have wayyy too many enemies. Jeeez)

Trying Sigil now that it's on Switch, which is basically a brand new episode of DOOM. So essentially, "Episode 5".
So far it is alright and interesting but I find the level design extremely linear. It's... an interesting change in direction for sure.

Actually, I think the gold Batman logo reward is for completing the game and one of the DLCs twice.
I think that's right anyway.

I got Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valencia the other day and I'v been playing that. I'm on Chapter 4 right now, and overall I like the game.

I got the urge to beat VIP3 so I did. Not too bad, except for some late game levels.

Been playing Wild ARMs 2. Had a bout of falling out of love with the game during my illness period but I'm feeling better and I am just. Feeling the game.

It's repetitive and it's very basic, very fillery. The translation is jank but, something about it just sticks with me. Mostly the music. The dungeons are pretty good too. Bosses are what's kind of boring.

They're the carol boss of RPGs, the kind that you just hit and heal repeatedly. I've been mostly coasting over using just normal attacks and Lilka's Heal. Only used Revive once. Haven't really gotten any other magic added to the Crest Graph other than the preset Flame and Freeze.

Fun fact: One time I was eating tortellini with butter and playing WA2 and I was just in heaven

Meanwhile I've also been playing Super Mario Galaxy 2 on my brother's house. Waiting for him to give me a (jailbroken) Wii to play it at home alongside Galaxy 1.

I'm still at the early game, beat Peewee Piranha's Temper Tantrum, Storming the Sky Fleet, Saddle Up with Yoshi and Spiny Control. Spiny Control was a matter of figuring out I'm not supposed to jump to hit King Lakitu and then ragequitting like an idiot.

Levels are getting a bit tough, but I'm also not good with analog sticks. I tried Think Before You Shake but it's pretty tough. Maybe next time. The Chomps are so cruel orz. Galaxy 1&2 are so good I really want to play them more. And to hear 3D World is even better... I need to get back to Odyssey too!

Played a bit of Final Fantasy I (NES) yesterday. Still a fun game, made it past Pravoka. Currently grinding money for magic with the Buccaneers KYZOKU before heading to Elfheim. Party is Fighter/Monk/W. Mage/B. Mage. It's a quick game so I just named everyone AAAA BBBB CCCC DDDD too.

I was playing Sevtech Ages but it got pretty frustrating trying to get the absolutely broken water wheel multiblock to actually, somehow, work, so I ragequit and deleted it.

Why does every modern Minecraft modpack have to have insane progression gates and/or thaumcraft? Would it kill someone to make something like Tech World 2 but for the 1.12 packs at least? Maybe I should go back to the 1.6.4 packs I'm familiar with. FFS -_-

It's all GregTech or something else because I guess insane progression gates and/or making everything super tedious equals good these days. I get some of the concepts, but why do garbage like Abyssalcraft and Thaumcraft have to have super obtrusive world generation? I'd love to be able to go more than a short distance without running into either a Shoggoth lair or a taint biome, even then it's just lame as heck. Why can't you just be like the Twilight Forest and have your own dimension so you don't totally mess up my overworld with your stupid world generation?


...anyone have any good packs that aren't garbage, for Minecraft? I can't think of any I'd enjoy that are within the past 5-years :/

heaven's vault

really neat and unique game. pretty much the entire game is just exploring ruins and learning about the history of the game's world. it helps that the game's world is really interesting and unique on its own. no platforming or combat, minor puzzles, lots of dialogue and walking. and sailing on space rivers. very relaxing and very immersive. i don't know how much i have left (have played for like 10 hours and there's really no indication of where i am in the grand scheme of things, WHICH IS GOOD) but i want there to be a lot more
i've honestly never played a video game in my life

Finally put in the time on trying to power through Iconoclasts last night. There's a fun game to play here when not so good story time stops.
