    Sky Force Reloaded on XBox One X. Love this series. Sounds incredible, looks incredible, and so cheap. $10.00!
    I have the first one, this is a sequel, and I can't put it down. I love it. I hope another one is coming at some point...

    Replaying Ultra Sun with Pokemon I haven't yet used on a team, hatching eggs to get them all at the start.

    Thus far, we got Zorua, Dewpider, Morelull, Alolan Sandshrew, Alolan Geodude and the boss of the bunch, Jangmo-o. This gone be fun!

    I finished Ryse: Son of Rome, and I found it more enjoyable than anticipated. The graphics and stories are very good, even in 2021. That CryEngine really is a technical marvel.

    The combat was decent, even if it is a bit basic, and although the game can be repetitive, I never found the story mode boring. Ashame that it's unlikely a sequel will come out, but I had a fun time hacking and slashing enemies as a Roman.

    Also, I'm playing Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury. The game is still a fun, and I am to complete it, while correcting history; you see, I almost completed the game when it originally came on the Wii U, but technical issues resulted in my save file being corrupted. Fortunately, cloud saves means I won't face this issue again :p

    I started Yakuza Kiwami 2 today. I completed the first three story chapters, a bunch of side missions, and then grinded quite a bit in order to max out my main stats only to access Limit Break versions of them. At first I thought that meant I was going to get some cool ass attacks FFVII style, but it's just more of the same. :lol 

    The gameplay is very different compared to the previous two entries, so it took me some time to get used to how it plays. Not to mention graphically it is impressive.

    Some of the new attacks were wicked badass though. I tossed a guy crotch first onto a passing by boat and another I threw into over the counter of a convenience store and the employee microwave his head.

    I started Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2. I’ve played the first one before, most recently in 2018, but never the second one.

    Lightsaber combat and force lightning seem a bit useless outside of certain situations. The best strategy seems to be to force push everyone to death. It is kind of funny to watch them rag doll around. Reminds me of the 2D Clone Wars series with how far they go flying. All in all, I’m having fun.

    Recently started playing Sniper Elite III, and the X-Ray kill-cam shots when your sniper bullet destroys an enemy's face or body are pretty gruesome! :D 

    I also just started doing the first batch of Heists on GTA V.

    Just short of 100 hours, I completed the Dragon Quest XI story last night. And there’s still more after the credits....YES PLEASE. I f***ing love this game. I’ll take anything more it will give me. I don’t think I’ve ever sunk 100+ hours into a game and have it feel as short as this one. I still have some of the Tickington stuff and the Wheel of Harma to do.

    If it has a weakness, it’s that the main conflict against the chief baddie is pretty basic. But that’s not the point. The point is the characters and their relationship with each other. They all have crystal clear motivations for joining you, they all have their own arc, and they all care about one another very much.

    Another small weakness is the orchestral score is not quite as good as DQVIII, but it still has its standout tracks.

    So I started playing MGS3 and oh my God these controls. Their so bad! It feels so odd and uncomfortable trying to fit my fingers across the controller just to aim and shoot. Everything feels clunky and awkward too.

    But then again, what should I expect from a 16 year old game?

    Just started Control and DAMN it's so cool. As a big SCP fan this game hits all the right notes for me.

    Are you playing the original version or Subsistence?
    IMO, the camera in the original release makes it nearly unplayable. The improvements Subsistence introduced elevated it to my favorite in the series. Though I guess the controls are still clunky by today’s standards.

    A friend of mine and I hopped into Valheim last night. I'm not a fan of the graphics quality but the game play was really fun. We worked long enough to beat the first big boss and get a small base set up.

    I think I'm playing the original. I'm playing it through that HD combo pack of MGS II and III. So I'm pretty sure it isn't subsistence.

    Nevermind it is Subsistence and I'm an idiot

    Spent a few hours in Yakuza 2 grinding. Fully maxed out my main stats, so I felt like I could move the story along only to now enter into the Cabaret Club stuff, so I guess I'll be spending the next week working on that instead. :lol

    Just wanna gush about Control, can I do that here? Still plugging away at it. Lost 4 hours to it yesterday and I didn't even realize.

    While enemy variety isn't quite there, they're challenging and forces you to use all of your abilities to really succeed. The sound design is wonderful with minimal music, letting the Hiss broadcasts act as the ambiance to the game. It makes lots of areas creepier as a result. Character design is great with this almost retro feel, and the environment of The Oldest House is wonderful despite it being a brutalist government office building.

    Absolutely adore this game.
