    There are a lot of exotics in D2 that were the original. I sort of wished none of the exotics came over and we had a fresh pool of weapons and armor.

    I think this one was a bit under-rated by general public. I had a lot of fun with it. :)

    I’m right at 30 hours into it now and loving it. I’m thinking I have another 8-15 to finish and platinum it.

    Been playing Shadow of War.

    Finished the campaign: the cinematics are great, and the story towards the end is excellent that ties rather nicely to the movies.

    However, the post-game levelling is nearly impossible without XP boost item from the microtransactions market, although gold coins could be earned in small amounts through “daily” missions.

    I was hoping to platinum it before 2018, but I worry that I won’t be able to... dangit

    Telltale holiday.

    played through walking dead Michonne, walking dead a new frontier, guardians of the galaxy
    guardians may be my favorite thing telltale has done, the humor and music nail it

    Between bouts of Mad Max on XB1 I'm playing Road Rage on PS4. It's so bad, but it has a somewhat charming quality. The trophies popping like candy doesn't hurt either.

    I've got 2 sessions playing The Division now. I'm finding it a bit tough being that I've been playing some shooters recently that favor aggressive play style and this requires you to be more conservative (or have better skills).

    Got to the end of SP the Fractured BW, might go back and try to get some of the trophies I missed. Put a bit more time into Guns Up, though that game is hanging on the delete pile. Not sure if I want to get back into Horizon or start one of my games in my back log.

    So, I bought Dead Alliance since it was on sale for like $7 or $8 on PSN. Every review said it's horrible but it's actually pretty fun.

    Right now trying to play Injustice 2, becoming very annoyed and frustrated with the demo fighting scenario.

    Some of the moves you wonder if they actually used a PS4 controller.

    I couldn’t get on with the first Injustice. And it was free.

    Never played the first one just thought the second one look interesting and it was on sale. Thought I would give it a shot.

    I'm not sure if I mentioned I started Marlow Briggs a little bit ago on XB1 (360 bc). I had never heard of the game but it was a free GWG last month. It's pretty great. It's basically MS's attempt at GoW. Nowhere near the good story of GoW with the Greek mythology, the story in MB is just plain ridiculous. But the game itself is fun and funny.

    I also started Sleeping Dogs on XB1. The game is one of my favorite games ever. I've 100%'d it on PS3, PS4 and 360 already.

    I've also been in a CoD mood and realized the last campaign I finished was Ghosts so I started up Advanced Warfare on PS4.

    After finishing + platinuming Shadow of War, I cracked open a couple of games from my backlog:

    Matterfall: A Housemarque game with very heavy inspirations from Metroid. It’s quite good!

    Some of the trophies looked challenging, so I’ll save this for later since I finished all the missions on “Normal” difficulty.

    Next up, Nier: Automata.
    Thoughts coming soon

    Stick of Truth. I played it all day and I don’t think I’m even a quarter through the story. Love it!

    I believe it's a longer story than the latest one.
    Played it on PS3, have yet to put the code in for the stick of truth....

    Playing Mario Odyssey on my new Switch. It's a great game and holding me over until I get Zelda. If you liked Mario 64 then this one is very similar only better.

    Is it deserving of the perfect score it received from a lot of reviewers? ehhhh maybe? I guess?

    Yeah, I’m feeling the same about it.

    Switch is an awesome console and playing it is a joy, but 10/10 for Mario Odyssey?

    Why?

    I think a lot of sites give Nintendo games 8+ scores just for being a Nintendo game.

    I'm not sure I've noticed any flaws with the game, yet. So maybe if there aren't any major flaws it's deserving of a 9.5 or 10. I may change my mind and think it's one of the best games ever by the time I finish it because it is growing on me each time I play. I am glad it didn't win game of the year over Zelda, though.

    Oh by the way, add me as a friend on Switch :) 8529-3386-9877
