Playing Persona 5 royal at the moment and while the game is still fun, it's so sloooooooooooooooow to start that I almost dropped it despite knowing it gets better. I'm finally able to explore Kamoshida's palace in full now though so that's good.
Also trying to do an Eltharion campaign in Total warhammer 2.

Darkest Dungeon, Pokemon Sword and Catherine Full Body. I never played the original Catherine so I'm super hyped to be playing the remaster/remake.

N. Sane Trilogy. You know I'm... beginning to seriously think Naughty Dog hated kids back when they made good games too, because some of these levels are sadistic. Especially if you're looking to get all the gems.

I also got Shadow Warrior 1 and 2 on sale. 1 was a relatively okay proto-Doom 2016, but 2... Fuck me I have no idea what they did with 2 but they turned it into some psuedo-live service garbage.

SW2 was one of the fastest refunds I've ever gotten as far as a game goes. SW1 was a decent FPS like you said - not great but I enjoyed it... But 2 was just terrible. What were they thinking?

It annoys me so much because the moment to moment gameplay, the better mobility and gunplay, more intuitive sword controls... that stuff is solid.

But it's bolted onto an unnecessary open world that adds nothing, and you gotta worry about character levels and XP gain, and all the pickups just float around instead of being part of the environment... Like, I genuinely can't wrap my head around how they went in such a stupid direction in the span of one game.

I basically got to the 2nd level or something like that, realized 'Wow, these guns that are dropping are all the same as before', and well, that was that. A good FPS has a sense of escalation. Doom starts you off with a pistol but by the end of the game you have an arsenal where most guns have their uses. An FPS where every enemy drops the same assault rifle with maybe +1 damage at most is just terrible. That's also probably why Destiny bores me.

Phantasy Star Online 2.

Pretty addicting. Like wow for free MMO. Only bad thing is I wish they had more outfit options and hairstyles, I think you can unlock some in season passes; but not sure how the accumulation works yet that contributes to points for that. (You still get points for the free stuff, but few rewards there.)
