Resonance of Fate was messy but had some really rad, unique combat (like if the Matrix was turned based) and I would love to see them expand on it.

The Last Remnant is similar in that while it was SUPER ROUGH it had some really cool ideas.

Also, while we may still get another Darksiders, I'm not super confident it'll be the kinda game we want.

God Eater Resurrection has been pretty great, and I 'll probably just roll right into 2 when that comes out in a week or so.

Firstlight was an amazingly lush garden planet that I spent way too much time on. After fixing my ship and hopping around a bit I decided to get out and walk in one direction until I hit one of those beacons that let you call your ship, 3 hours later I had holds full of weird stuff I found and a whole bunch of Gek words.

Dawn of Discovery is super great, easily the best of the 'Anno' games.

Went back through Call of Juarez Gunslinger today after they mentioned it on the GBE stream, I really love everything about that game. Also playing through God Eater Resurrection which is sorta an old game? God Eater is a solid MonHun-like but without a lot of the tedious stuff dragging it down, only complaint is that the combat is a bit simplified, as well.

Really, really liking this, beat it earlier then immediately jumped into speedrun mode, which is something I pretty much never do in games.

The health system is really cool, keeps a solid balance between the fights being challenging (and relatively long) while still allowing for some error, especially when your learning a new phase.

Easily one of my favorite games of the year, so far.

Lucio's knockback skill should work on Junkrat's grenades, if only because I constantly forget and try to push them when they come flying at me.

I've really loved finding all the weird ways you can counter/interact with other heroes, for instance, The other night I used Reinhart's charge to push D.Va's ultimate away from my team. Also I was fighting a Genji as Lucio and 2 or 3 times in the match I knocked him off a ledge and he somehow managed to get back up with a dash/climb combo, it was pretty crazy.

Excited to see more of this, Little bummed that it seems like they are going back to Marine/Eldar/Ork again, hopefully we can get some Tau, Necron, or Imp Guard in there without waiting for 3 expansions.
