I haven’t played many games this year compared to previous years. Work and time with my mom took up a lot of my free time so there’s been two or three games I’ve been working on for the better part of the year.
But, I think my fringe games would be Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Far Cry 6, and Back 4 Blood. I don’t see any of those games showing up on any lists, may be a few personal ones, but nothing major. I just recently completed Kena and even though the bosses were slightly on the Dark Souls scale, I felt pretty relaxed and enjoyed my time with it. Far Cry 6 and Back 4 Blood I completed on my stream with a friend and had a blast playing both those games from that standpoint but I don’t think they’re good enough to beat out other games.
@brian333: That may be what I need to do. I enjoy Grubb’s commentary enough that I wanna hear more about his thoughts especially when it comes to new in the industry and it’s good to know I don’t need the premium anymore.
@swthompson: I think that’s what I’m having issues with cause when I hit the feed link, it doesn’t bring up anything in my podcast store like it’s use to do and a general search just brings up the last episode in the Giant Bomb Presents
It took me getting to the dlc and finishing that for The Surge to get it’s hooks in me and I grew to really like that game despite the executive area and the final area. The final boss also was lame in my experience so I never finished it which sucks cause I really wanted that boss drop.
Been awhile since I posted on here. I am an assistant manager at a pretty bullshit retail company so whenever I get a vacation, I often don’t go anywhere (I get several weeks to use for vacation so I do venture out). Instead, I sort of just relax and nerd out on shit that I’ve been neglecting because of time constraints or whatever. So here’s what I’ve accomplished:
- Played and beat Rage 2, 40+ hours.
- Played and finished Astro Bot Rescue Mission. Had to take a break one day because I felt like I had a brain hemorrhage.
- Beat Emma, the Gentle Blade and Isshin Ashina in NG+. Currently sitting one trophy away from the platinum. I truly love this game.
- Got my gear score up 499 on Division 2 with some resemblance of a build since SMG builds seemed to suck now.
- Started Days Gone.
- Got caught up on One Punch Man season 2.
- Watched two of the three seasons of Tokyo Ghoul.
- Watched Detective Pikachu and John Wick 3.
- Did some Tinder swiping lol.
Yes I did sleep, and yes I did see the sunlight. It’s coming to an end, but I feel pretty good about the progress I made with my catalog. Anyone else have some pretty progressive vacations when you’re able to do shit you enjoy?
I plan on playing these games. I enjoy these types of games a lot even if they don’t push boundaries of whatever genre they’re lumped into, as long as the gameplay is solid, I can sneak around, explore and the story is solid, I’m good.
