    Injustice 2 on Steam. Been a minute since I just played a 2D fighter. Good times.

    Finally picked up a Switch today, along with Breath of the Wild. I found a Shopper's Drug Mart that had them in stock and, using pretty much all my points with that store, basically got the whole kit and caboodle for half price.

    I hated Breath of the Wild when I first started playing it because I didn’t know how to get out of the starting area(I think I skipped the cutscene that shows you to go to the roof of the temple, not really a spoiler it happens so early in the game). But now I think it might be one of the best games I’ve ever played! The first hour doesn’t do it justice. Just for keks, I decided to go fight Ganon with my shit gear. I actually managed to get wind Ganon down to half health charge swinging the double axe.

    I love games that give you the option to do things like that. Like you know you shouldn’t be in this place yet, but you have the option. Dark Souls has that too.

    I’ve also been playing Blazing Star, a 90’s Neo Geo shoot em’ up on the Switch eshop. Probably gonna get one of their fightan games too, maybe Garou Mark of the Wolves. Now we just need a Capcom vs SNK rerelease on there and I’ll be happy.

    Garou is so underrated as a Neo Geo fighter. I assume the Switch is emulating it? Is the emulation quality good?

    I hear so many good things about the Switch - it's super tempting to go out and get one. Hard to justify spending more money on more games though. :lol:

    The Switch is great (sorry) there are so many good games to choose from that if you're on a budget, it's hard to decide what to play first. I just bought Kingdoms: New Lands recently and I've been loving that on the Switch, such a good fit for it.

    Blazing Star runs really well. It comes with all releases of the game(I always pick Japanese arcade mode), and there’s video options to make it fit 16:9 screens and some decent scanline filters. I think you can remap controls too.

    My Switch was definitely an impulse purchase. I got called in to work on a 3 day weekend, so I felt like I needed to treat myself that night or something lol.

    It’s a comfy system though. You just throw in the card and start playing. I was playing the tablet on its kickstand on my balcony the other night. It’s good at not getting between you and the games.

    Yup, it’s worth it. You’ll get tons of time out of just Zelda and Mario alone, and considering the system hasn’t even been out a year, it’s probably the strongest game line up Nintendo has had in a very long time. And it really is neat going from TV to portable seamlessly. If I didn’t prefer to buy multi platform games/didn’t already own them on PS4, I’d probably amass a much larger library for my Switch by this point.

    As mentioned in the Persona 5 thread, finally beat that game, mentioned how much I loved it, and started a NG+ to go for the Platinum.

    Aside from that, ReCore. This is actually a pretty fun game. I’m still early on so I guess I haven’t gotten to the point where everyone gives it flack? Also I hear it’s improved when the Divinite Edition patch came out?

    Oh, and Cuphead. Such a delightful (and yes, brutal) game.

    Divinity: Original Sin 2. After the first 10 hours I forgot all other games. It's just ridiculous how good this is, and it keeps growing as you progress. It's like Withcer 3 meets XCOM + some classic RPG stuff. 10/10. Not just the game of the year for me, but the best game in a loooong time.

    Played through the DLC on Horizon Zero Dawn, and it's awesome and way more difficult than the regular game. Also started New Game + on it, we'll see how that goes.

    Got back into Mass Effect Andromeda and am interested in the story once again now that I've stuck to the main quests. I have the whole week off so hopefully I'll be able to finish it soon.

    Noticing quite a lot of the bugs/wonky character animations that people complained about and yeah, it kind of does take me out of it. Still enjoying it, though, since I'm a huge ME fanboy. Just wish that it would've been better so the next game wasn't shelved. :noplease:

    Playing Diablo 3 again for season 12 and the new neceomancer class. Just finished the baseline of my build.

    It’s hard to explain but the time just passes when playing Diablo. It’s a very chill gameplay loop. Love it.

    It's a little late, maybe, but I just snagged the Stranger Things mobile game. It's actually really good - it's like I'm playing A Link to the Past, but with Stranger Things characters and Stranger Things storylines. The best part is that it's free and there are no ads.

    ^ I aaaaaalmost started playing that game. But then my phone broke and I'm waiting for the replacement to arrive. But it's on the list.

    I grabbed Killer is Dead when it was free on Humble. Such a weird game. And annoyingly Japanese. But mechanically pretty fun.

    I've also been diving into Hitman Absolution. Makes me want to play the updated Hitman game, which I've heard good things about.

    Just beat South Park: The Fractured But Whole. Now trying to Platinum it... Didn't realize you could change your race though, so I have to play through again as a black kid on Mastermind difficulty. It was a fun time. I'll hold onto it for the DLC (got the version with the season pass) before I decide if I'm going to trade it in.

    I've been diving into I Am Setsuna more and more. What a beautiful game, sort of peaceful in a way, with the wintry aesthetic and beautiful piano score. Plus, Chrono Trigger-style gameplay goodness.

    Just got Shadow of War for 25 bucks at Gamestop (Black Friday) and holy hell, I am loving the shit out of it.

    Restarted playing Call of Duty: World at War and Black Ops 1 on veteran difficulty. I've beaten WaW before when I was like 13. Boy, was it frustrating since I didn't know the enemies spawn infinitely unless you progress forward. :lol:

    I picked back up on Final Fantasy XII: Zodiac Age. Shame I overlooked XII back on PS2, so far this is a quality FF once you get use to the combat system.

    Also, rented Star Wars Battlefront 2. So far, it’s not as offensive as all the reviews has made it out to be. Then again, I’ve mostly played the campaign. Even that hasn’t been terrible so far.

    Edit:
    Ok, I’m playing Hans mission in the campaign, and I reeeaalllyy don’t like Paldora.
