I wasn't too impressed with Star Wars. I think the high reviews and comparisons to Dark Souls had me believing it would have as much depth and quality as that series.

It was pretty good, and I can understand fans loving it. If it had, say, a coat of TMNT paint, I'd probably be loving it.

Here it is! Didn't come with the game (and I didn't know it was supposed to when I bought it) so I had to use a 2600 game to test it out, but I think this was an absolute steal for $50 shipped!

That's awesome. "turtles in time" ?? Is that a mistake? Looks like the original Arcade game.

For a week iam playing Gears. Amazing game like all gears games. Very brutal and with lot of violence. Runs max settings 1440p 49 fps average. It gives me great pleasure to kill all those stupid aliens in very brutal ways.

I've been splitting my game time between Celeste on the PC, and then Symphony of the Night on the PS3 before going to bed.

Also trying to make my mind up if I want to get Bloodstained: ROTN for PS4 or if I should wait to get it on the Switch. I heard the Switch version had problems when it first came out, but I don't know if those problems are still there

I started playing Sniper Ghost warriro Contracts on Sunday after i finished Spyro the dragon 3. This game is made for true ninja masters and leaders like me! Not regeneration health, it is harder than other games are on hard, not other soldiers killing enemies for you! You fight like a man, have medkits and only if you are very brave and strong like me you can beat ti! We need more hardcore games like this and the DOOM series(DOOM is my favortie fps/ actionseries).
You see Microsoft Activision and EA? That how you make a good action game! And while iti s made by a small company CI games it looks like it was made by a big AAA company. A true ninja/stealth game.

The other night I buckled down and got all seven Chaos Emeralds in Sonic Mania, then beat it for the third time, this time with the "real" ending. I don't think I've ever managed to get all seven Emeralds in any Sonic game where it wasn't a story requirement, so I'm pretty happy about it.

Decided to check another one off the "Long Overdue" list after that, and finally started Shenmue (Xbox One version). Never touched it before now, but definitely curious after 20 years of rave reviews. I dig it so far; it's "quaint". You can see how far the open world genre has come since then but I can appreciate how much of a game-changer it must have been when it was fresh. And even though it isn't as huge as the GTA games and doesn't have all the razzle-dazzle of pretty much every other open-world game to come along, I really like how "alive" and authentic everything feels. Every character being a unique individual with their own routine and everything is really cool. It's much more intimate than something like GTA but I dig it.

Feels kinda like a detective game so far; I haven't done a whole lot except walk around talking to people and finding clues, with a few fights here and there. One thing that feels kinda primitive about it is that there aren't dialog trees with three or four response options, just since that's become such a standard thing in games with a lot of dialog and it feels like it belongs in there. I dig the combat system, too, I just haven't really run into more than a couple of spots where I'd need to use it yet.

I can see how it might not play well with a younger audience weaned on more modern games, but I dig it. I'm always kind of a sucker for "This is where all this other stuff was essentially cribbed from" kinda games.

Picked up a Wii U along with Smash Bros. and Hyrule Warriors. only played Smash so far.

So far so good. The "tablet" controller is pretty uncomfortable to hold for more than a few hours though. Gonna definitely get a Pro controller or whatever. Nice to finally cross another console off the collection list. Next will probably be Dreamcast.
