Played a pile of Ghost Recon: Wildlands in spite of what I considered such a massively wasted opportunity to make a fantastic story out of the premise (something like an Iran-Contra/Medellin parable of an illegal special forces team fostering ties with morally-questionable death squads to go after drug cartels a la Los Pepes and the Águilas Negras). However instead of going after the cartel my buddies and I instead went on a looting spree to pimp out our operators. On my shopping list was a Colt M4A1 with holo-sight, laser-aiming module, and M-203 grenade launcher, Mk.17 with ACOG scope and foregrip, Mk. 14 Enhanced Battle Rifle with the Mod 0 stock, and a Mk. 48 Mod 0 LMG (would have preferred the M-240B, but oh well). 

 

Is it a stand-alone game, or is it an expansion/DLC for the main Ghost Recon game released not too long ago?

Got ending E in Nier Automata. It's the best ending. Other players sacrificed their save data to help me see it, so when it came my time, I chose the same.

Now I need to restart to get 100%. Edit: and by "restart" I mean I pulled my save file off PSN from yesterday. So I only lost about 8 hours of game time.

I'm replaying Planescape: Torment. Figured I'd give it a spin again just after playing Numenera. The story, companions and setting are all things that work a lot better in PS:T. But it goes up and down a lot more in quality. 

But yeah, dialogues have never been so much fun to read in a game. It really is quite amazing in that regard. Very special.

 

Also playing Crusader Kings II again, though I decided against getting the latest DLC for now... but still, what an addictive game this is. A million problems and wonky things in it but overall, it's got to be one of the most entertaining games I've ever bought. Extremely addictive.

Shadow Warrior. I suck at anything in first person view, but it's mindless fun, I guess.

 

The Dwarf Run. I like it, but it feels to me that combat encounters feel like trial and error. I hope I don't mess up the stat allocation for my characters.

Encountered a puzzle in BS4 I still don't get. Escaped from a chair where I was tied up by fiddling with some Rube Goldberg like set up with the aid of a Murphy bed and some dude hiding in a box

Finished playing Metro 2033 Redux. This replay reminded me how much attention to detail exists in this game, it would have been a whole lot better if it weren't for those stupid sections where you constantly have to deal with Hunters. Generally, the mutants in the game felt pretty bothersome, almost as if it didn't add much to the game, sort of like the werewolves in The Order 1886.

Finished MOTHER (NES). First time playing it, pretty good game. Has some flaws, but that's to be expected with a game of this age, especially for an early "JRPG". Probably the best (or at least some of the, depending on your personal preferences, I guess) music you can hear on NES.

Tickled my humour by downloading the original Wing Commander via Origin.

 

Although flying it with mouse is an interesting shift from the days of old...

I've moved on to Horizon Zero Dawn, but I can't stop thinking about Nier Automata.

HZD isn't grabbing me at all.

The original game was completely unplayable with a mouse, how does that work? Like Freelancer or more like Privateer 2 which officially supported mouse play but was nigh unplayable* with it?

 

* Not that Privateer: The Darkening was ever "playable" with even the best input hardware. That game's a mess. :)

So so.  The non-flying parts the mouse is reaaly damn slow to crawl over and it works better using the keyboard to move the cursor around.  In flight, it's a bit more Freelancer like, possibly a bit too smooth and quick so its very easy to overdo movements.

Found out my old Saitek flight stick does work with Windows 10. You just have to find it in the bowels of the OS under "Hardware and Sound" and calibrate it, works using the generic driver.

After watching some people on Twitch play it, I bought Final Fantasy XV. Which means I also finally bought a console (PS4) for the first time since the original NES. :D It's been handy when traveling, since I'm not going to haul my desktop back and forth all the time.

 

So, I've had the PS4 for almost 4 months now, but I still just play Final Fantasy. It has a lot of issues with pacing and (if you're into such) story depth and lore but meh, that's not really why I play it. I see it more as a party action-rpg and I've always loved party combat vs. solo character combat. As I've never played any other FF, I can't compare it in that regard - I take it a lot of old school fans dislike it a lot - but I have a lot of fun with it. The goofy-haired boy band is fun to hang out with and the combat, while not complex, is nicely visceral and fun. When originally playing "blind", had some decent challenges here and there, mostly in the post-game content (overall it's a pretty easy game tho).

 

I think they did a good job re: the four guys and their dynamic together and the main story worked - on an emotive level - where they were concerned. The rest was lacking. And their attempted mix of open world then very linear/scripted story telling didn't work well for me. Still...with all it's flaws, I still have a lot of fun. :)

 

Edit: the Brotherhood anime episodes were quite enjoyable as backstory, as well. The movie (Kingsglaive) didn't work as well for me. I found it kind of boring.

If you get bored of FFXV, pick up Horizon: Zero Dawn.  It's good. I loved FFXV though, I still haven't finished it but my road trips with the boy band were super charming.

^ yeah, that one's pretty popular on Twitch (Horizon). Looks like a good game. I might check it out someday. The uncanny valley when the characters are talking in the dialogue bits is really disconcerting at times, tho. Probably the worst uncanny valley I've had while watching gameplay. :disguise:

Stand-alone game separate from that F2P adversarial shooter that came out a while ago (and folded shortly after).

Playing some Xenonauts again. Its inferior to X-com 2 in almost every way and yet... so much fun.
