What game are you playing ATM?

The first Darksiders game is free on XB1 for Gold members, I downloaded it and started it tonight. I mostly got tired pretty early on and had one of my roommates play while I watched (my favorite way to play video games these days tbh). But I was pleasantly surprised and my roommate had played it on PC years ago and said it was better than he remembered. We played for about 4-5 hours. Fun little game.

Ryse and Evolve are both also free this month. Two other games I remember thinking I'd like to play eventually. Pretty good month.

I also just RedBoxed and beat Final Fantasy XV last weekend. Boy that game would have been so great if they finished it.

Mass Effect Andromeda. I don't think I've ever played a game so unpolished

I'm still playing through Breath of the Wild on the Switch. Everything that needs to be said about that game has already been said, although I don't see enough praise for the environment design in it. I was totally blown away when I realized you can see just about every main objective in the game from the first tower you get to. I'm enjoying every minute I have with the game and I'm glad it's taking me so long to finish it.

Persona 5 y'all

I've been watching my roommate play it, I absolutely love the visual style and the gameplay looks really fun too. It might be the game that pushes me to buy a PS4.

tbh if I weren't already a fan of the series I don't think I'd be playing it right now. I miss the linear, well designed encounters and tactical depth of the previous games, but running and gunning in the multiplayer horde mode is more engaging this time. Andromeda does have a lot of good content, but to get to that you have to put up with a lot of glitches.

Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric. That game is a bugfest, and not a fun one either. :(

I've been playing Psychonauts again as of late, trying to see all of the details I missed. I ended up getting one of the few achievements that I missed the last two playthroughs because I forget how much exploring the game wants you to do in between story progress, where you can miss a lot of character development by doing one or two things in the story back-to-back (which is very easy to accidentally do.)

Yooka Laylee.

I heard Yooka was pretty meh, polished in some places but god awful in others. I don't know though, I'm not really a big fan of the huge rare collect-a-thon guy so I wouldn't be the one to know if it was good or bad.

I've been playing SMT Nocturne, I'm gonna finally jump into the Persona (3-5) games afterwards.

P2 is pretty good too, even if it is significantly different from 3-5 (granted, I'm a sucker for late 90s and early 2000s JRPGs). Also, I highly recommend playing 3-5 in their order of release. I want to finish 3 and 4, but going back to them after 5 addresses almost all of my problems with them will be tough. 

Anyway, I'm still playing Persona 5. I'm a little over 50 hours in, and I'm still enjoying it quite a bit. I've got some gripes with the dungeon system, but I've had those since P3. 

I'm trying to decide which fighting game I want to get into next. The only one I'm good at is SoulCalibur, but 5 came out 5 years ago and they still haven't announced a sequel. Tag Tournament was the last Tekken game I really enjoyed, and I have the newest BlazBlue but that series is on its last legs. Street Fighter V feels like active theft with all the DLC, and I'm not very interested in MvC. Both Guilty Gear and KoF's latest versions are coming to Steam soon, so I'll probably go with one of those. (Why am I so picky)

Play all of them to the point where you can't dedicate enough time to get really good at any one of them individually, like me. You'll end up painfully average at everything, but at least you'll be able to beat your irl friends at anything they think they're good at.

btw SFV has a free multiplayer beta going on this weekend if you have a PS4 & PS+ or a PC good enough to run it. Since its free, it might be worth a shot even if you don't enjoy it by the end. The DLC situation isn't as bad as the internet says it is. The costume DLC is overpriced, just like every other fighting game with costume DLC. Its expensive but you don't need it to play. The character DLC is fairly reasonably priced though imo, and even though I haven't spent any real money on SFV I've still managed to buy 4 of the 8 DLC characters released so far with in-game money, with enough to buy a 5th when I want to.

(but KoFXIV & GGXrdRev are both awesome too so idk man, whatever you pick you'll probably enjoy)

I take it a step further and buy a lot of them and then ignore all of them because I'm playing something else. I finally decided I'll dedicate myself to ONE of them and hope it works out. I might check out SFV this weekend, I was never huge on 4 but EVO always makes Street Fighter look so good
