Oldie's, but a goodie's. 

#1. Just finished INSIDE, again. Highly recommend it, Playdead is pretty solid in my book. Thoughts on this?

#2. One of my favorite games i've ever played has been Shadow of the Colossus. Thoughts on game play and that in general?

I played the shit out of a promo disc I found in a magazine back in, I wanna say 2004, holding me over while Twilight Princess kept getting delayed. It only featured the first boss, but at the time it was just... amazing. When I finally got to play the full game a number of years later I remember trying to compare it to the monster hunter franchise. You're fighting this massive creature you can climb all over, you have to observe it and determine its weakness. It's not always obvious. What I found sets it apart was the story, the lack of fancy weapons, the lack of hand-holding, simplistic concept, and overall gothic tone. Everything about that is appealing. Sometimes you just want to hop into a game and slay an epic monster without all the gish-gallop and SotC delivers on that better than any game I've ever seen.

Ghost of Tsushima (PS4)

Roamed around a bit discovering new stuff, did some side missions and helped Ishikawa more.

Dragon Ball Z Kakarot (PS4)

Working on leveling Gohan up before leaving planet Earth. Discovered Krillin is just as perverted as Master Roshi, only he tries to hide it more than Roshi does.

ACNH (Switch)

Played about two hours of the bug-off event, sold fossils, talked to my neighbors, etc.

Call of The Wild (Xbox One)

Been playing this off and on throughout the week with my brother and my friend as well as doing some solo sessions. I finally got to level 7 and made some decent money on there (still far behind compared to others, don't judge 😅).

I've gotten to the point in Terraria where I've got a two story house & am learning about the differences in the metals for crafting better gear & weapons. I've never played Terraria before so it's taking me a while to get into the rhythm of everything. This is the type of game that I could get lost in for hours on end & really enjoy myself but due to work & my workout schedule, not sure when I'll have a solid 3 or 4 hour block of time to just play my heart out.

Call of The Wild (Xbox One)

Played a few hours of this because I really wanted to hunt some lions but I literally couldn't find a single one, ugh. I did get some Gemsbok and warthog. 

 

Witcher 3 (Xbox One)

One of the games I have that I have back logged. I'm finally getting a chance to sit down and play it. This time I'm getting into the story for once while in the past I just couldn't get into it, lol.

Animal Crossing (Switch)

C.J showed up on my island so I sold a bunch of fish today and then came across a new fish. The caption shows that Animal Crossing has no chill apparently FB_IMG_1598931805146.thumb.jpg.e66b2db93aed7bd183035900472fb4f5.jpg

 

Ghost of Tsushima (PS4)

Put a little over two hours in the game doing side missions and some exploring.

ACNH (Switch)

Seen the first signs of fall in the game and at the moment not very impressed but then again it's just the beginning. Had someone from Southern Hemisphere tell me fall is very disappointing in the game. I'm very hopeful though because I'm seriously stoked for Halloween!

Fortnite (PS4)

Had my first victory this season. Doom is a b*tch to defeat though, ugh. 

My Time At Portia (Switch)

Even though I originally started the game on Xbox (it's on gamepass currently) I wanted to actually own it on the Switch. So now I'm trying to get back to where I was previously. Also restarting has helped me remember stuff I either forgot about or skimmed past and regretted it 😅. And I'm actually focused on where I'm putting my crap this time too instead of all willy nilly.

Grounded (Xbox One)

Decided to jump on the bandwagon today and play a bit of this. It's pretty fun and reminds me of a kid friendly version of games like Ark and Conan Exiles. I'll probably play it for awhile then forget about it like I did the others 😅

Digimon Story Cyber Slueth (Switch)

I originally played the game on PS4 and nearly beaten it until a friend of mine gifted me the Switch version of the game so I'm replaying it.

I got sticker shock after looking at the new Nvidia lineup.  You’ll need 3 slots, 350 watts, and $1,500 for the top card.   😱  Even the low-end card is $500.  
 

Is 8k gaming really that big a deal?  Even 4K is questionable with my eyes.  (I can’t even SEE pixels that small! :D )  To me it seems more like the company is simply looking for people with more money than sense.  The Intel bend-me-over routine all over again, just with a different company.  Looks like I’ll be keeping my old RX 480 for another generation.  Or at least until I see AMD’s “RDNA2” cards released later this year.

Final Fantasy VII Remake (PS4)

Had to defeat these creatures that looked like dementors from Harry Potter. I think Jesse has a big crush on Cloud due to the fact that she invited him over one night, lol (Sorry but Cloud belongs to Tiffa).

The Sims 4 (PC)

Been awhile since I picked up this game. I've been wanting to play it for awhile but I keep forgetting about it until it's bed time. I played a few hours on it. Got the older brother to age up to young adult and now he's living on his own in a run down apartment trying to make it big in becoming a athlete. 

DBZ Kakarot (PS4)

Gohan, Killin, Bulma and Vegeta all made it to planet Namek in search of the Dragon Balls. Bulma's ship unfortunately took a hit from two of Frieza's henchmen and now have to find a way to fix it.

RAWR! I am SO close to being able to beat the Eye of Cthullu in Terraria but the friggin' NPCs won't do jack to help me really despite having the banner that gives us an attack boost so now I'm going to have to spend an hour mining for more gems in a den of fire spiders or something in order to upgrade my weapons and armor since I'm apparently the only one in the three story house that I built who cares if we survive....U.G.H.!!!

Rage aside, I absolutely love this game ♥️

I did it! I did it! I finally beat the Eye of Cthullu!!!! 

I mean, I almost got all of my NPCs killed in the process but hey, let's not focus on that & besides, if they'd pulled their weight before these drastic measures wouldn't have been necessary. 

Also, I found another underwater system on the other side of the desert that has some very cool loot.

My Time At Portia (Switch)

Working on random commissions for villagers and still working on that stupid bridge. Also building relationships in this game is very difficult for some odd reason.

Oh and I noticed a very funny bug in the Switch version of the game, even have a picture to show. 😅FB_IMG_1599509073368.thumb.jpg.f9ae31d9c52391ae194d92b0972999cd.jpg

The Sims 4 (PC)

Working on my main Sims siblings lives at the moment. Got him in college and a relationship.

Fortnite (PS4)

Worked on a bit of week 3 challenges with a friend and leveled up. 

Man of Medan (PS4)

Since the new game is coming out next month I figured this is the time to play and actually beat this one. Didn't get far into it tonight though.

Think I'm gonna head into to the forest biome in Terraria to beat the crap out of some goblins. 

A game where I get to channel my inner Goblin Slayer? Aww yeah!!!

Goblin Slayer Fans are Loving Goblin's Crown Movie

I think I'm only half way into Goblin Slayer and I absolutely love the series so far. 

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1&2 (Xbox

Bought this game yesterday for nostalgic reasons and I totally forgot how bad I am at these games but I still enjoy it (if that makes sense 😅). I used to play all the Tony Hawk games with a friend during my school years before he unfortunately passed away. I hope they also bring back the TH Underground series too!

Playing Empyrion and the Zrx keep delivering drones containing rockets and minigun ammo.  This one landed conveniently on my balcony.  I didn't even have to leave the house to collect the package.  :D
