    I think the Abyss Watchers are the first lord of cinder boss(es) that you fight, so 3 more in the main game aside from DLC! Well that's how it was for me, I assume I'm playing in order but sometimes it isn't clear. :X Also optional bosses throw me off.

    My body is not ready for Midir. I know his health pool is just stupid huge, ughhh! D:

    Bought a playstation classic for $40 and put autobleem on it. You can basically make a retropie machine for half the price, and it comes with 2 controllers. :metal: I wanna see if my fightstick will work with it later.

    Not really playing anything right now, but getting super hype for the WoW Classic launch later this month.
    If any of you guys are hopping in on the train, send me your tag and I'll add you! Should be cool to play with some forumbros.

    Probably going to get Borderlands 3. I can’t decide between the beast tamer dude and the six-armed woman. I wanna fill the screen with stuff. That’s how you know a game is fun.

    That's my favourite modern game series :)

    I've replayed them all so many times now it's embarrassing.

    For the last couple of days I ended up going back to Borderlands 2 for a couple hours before bed. That game never gets old.
    Otherwise.... haven't really been playing much. I picked up Mario + Luigi Superstar Saga and I find that it hasn't quite hooked me in the way I was hoping it would. Maybe I'm just not in the mood for games lately.

    Been getting my ass whooped in ranked on R6. I'd swear I'm actually worse at this game than I am CSGO (which I am awful at). Still, I vastly prefer playing R6.

    Up to Chapter 8 at of the Tales of Noctis and The Absurd Hairdos. A bit of development, some progress and a character that yells fanservice to the FF veterans. Ooh a sexy dragoon lady with a Highwind themed special move joins your party to fight a Valefor looking Quezacoatl boss. Sadly I never saw the move since I was so overlevelled and the boss keeled over too soon. Then smashed the brakes on the main plot to jump right back to the sidequest/hunts muckabout.

    While I'm enjoying it so far, there was one obnoxious moment where I basically had to stop the game. One baffling sidequest had Gladiolus stop me in my tracks to shill me the joys of Cup Noodles. It was a word for word commercial so off putting I'm blaming it for the headache I woke up with this morning. Now I know about Asia's views on commercialism and the partnership with Cup Noodles and all (that stupid DLC hat for Noctis you're expected to pay real money for wasn't bad enough). I was actually fine with having their products on billboards and being available for food, but this? Seriously screw you Square Enix.


    Actually, while I did stop playing, I gave Episode Gladiolus DLC a crack. The FFXV story is something I wanted to experience chronologically, since I've already invested in the movie, anime, brawler etc. So I was curious looked up when to play the extra stuff that really should've been in the game already. And since musclebound mullethead leaves the party at where I was, that was the recommended time to play his gaiden voyage. Once again, Square Enix disappoints like a champ. You get to play Mr Stomach Crunches through a long corridor with much more simplified combat mechanics. This is something that could've easily be intertwined with the main story. It's been done in the past. FFVI party splits in the World of Balance, the Laguna tangents in FFVIII, Shadow's dreams to some extent, at least they're all in game. Also doesn't help that Gladiolus is the least interesting member of the 4 piece boy band (says a lot since the others aren't much chop either).

    Oh well, I said I'm committing to this and seeing it through to the end, even if it means trudging along through all it's flaws.

    I got sort of suckered into Pokemon GO again. I'm not a "gaming with friends" kind of person, but I'll take this over most "multiplayer" kinds of things I guess.

    Second run through of Mass Effect Andromeda. I wish it had a story still.

    Taking my first Destiny playthrough as a Titan in D2. Normally run Hunter. So... Some of the mechanics are... Offputting. Warlock controls are more similar to the Hunter. At least to me. It's nice being more tanky. But, I miss some of the mobility, and definitely the supers.

    Aside from driving around with Angst, Abs, Austere and Androgynous, been squeezing in a few Samurai Shodown time. Being left cold for so long, this may be the game that's rekindling my love for the genre.

    Version 1.11 just came out and looking at the changes, it's practically a different game. Looking at some of the changes, Genjuro obviously gets nerfed since he was way too good, and bottom feeders like Kyoshiro and Shiki get much needed upgrades.

    I'm glad it's no longer like the old days where patch changes like these mean another new game release.

    Picked up the newly updated No Man's Sky, giving that a shot... seems decent so far!

    I got to the last act in FF10 and did what I always do with any RPG and that’s to stop playing altogether because I want to maximize everyone’s stats and gear and stuff and ain’t nobody got time for that so I just stop altogether because that makes sense.

    Anyways, been playing mega man X through X4 and Borderlands 2 because that’s cheaper than buying Borderlands 3.

    So I had the extra money and bought Sekiro and have had an hour with it. So far, Sekiro seems like a brilliant game. Feels like a FromSoft game, it just doesn't feel like a Souls/Borne game and that works in this game's favor by a large margin. So far from what I've seen, where people fuck up is trying to play this game like a game where they have to kill everything head-on. You can kill everything but you're better off doing it with stealth attacks until you hit a boss or the like. I'm sure I'll die, I'm sure I'll rage, but I'm going to keep playing the way it was meant to be played and that should minimize both. The parrying feels nice, I must say. It feels more immediate and as a result, quite satisfying when you come up the better person in a duel.
