    "I wonder if Andy has heard of [Dropmix]"

    Yeah. I have it and all of the cards save the stupid Toys r Us exclusive pack and the GameStop promo card.

    I think the cooperative party mode is the most fun part of the game. The competitive mode is fine but pretty basic and once you've played it a few times, there aren't many strategies to it. But the party mode is easy to play with friends and can be a blast to try to overcome your high score.

    Dave: "I'm not looking forward to any games until March"
    Oh that I had that problem...
    Dragon Ball, Monster Hunter and Dissidia in January. Under Night, Shadow of the Collosus and Secret of Mana in Feb. Ni no Kuni, Yakuza, and Atelier in March.
    My Q1 is too packed.

    I get that. But no of those game appeal to me. I do need to try different genres of games. When I became a writer for ps nation it forced me to open my range some. Podcast co host I think will open it even more.

    Working on it

    Truly am. Some of it comes down to finances.

    I'm just teasing. Play what you want to play is what I say. :)

    But the role I have now will require me to diversify. Otherwise it will be a pretty boring podcast.

    I’ve never heard “Korea” so many times in a podcast!

    I was blushing!

    Funny you should mention this, but I got an email from Playstation (finally) summarizing my year of playing games on the PS4. My top 3 games for time played were Assassin's Creed Origins, Destiny 1 and 2. Haha Go figure.

    I refuse to post my email from Sony since it's a bit embarrassing the total amount of hours for my top 3 games. ;)

    Do it :)

    Let's just say that the total hours of your top 3 don't even come up to have the hours I spent in my top 1. ;)

    Carl_S Well-Known Member

    Yeah, we already know you spent 4000 hours on Destiny 2. What are the next 2?

    I thought I mentioned them in a previous post, but my top 3 games last year in hours were:

    1. Destiny 2 (And no it wasn't quite 4000 hours. I don't think I have that total time in D1)
    2. Destiny (Not sure how it came in second considering we had this one to play for 9 months compared to 3 for D2).
    3. Assassin's Creed Origins (There was quite a difference in hours from 2 to 3)
