Got game pass tried hades and halo infinite. Didn't care for either after a few hours playing both. Also tried loddoss game but having a hard time getting into that too. I still never understood what was so great about halo but figured I could get into the latest one...guess not..not much else I see on game pass that I hadn't already played back when I had it in the summer..

The Witcher 3 is on my game list. Never played them before and I'm enjoying them a lot! Going around collecting loot now to sell and build up a nice stockpile of cash.

I played the first one, enjoyed it quite a bit. The second one I got lost in a city since the graphics all looked the same, gave up on it. Then MS switched Halo to Xbox only and I was over it. I think Halo 202 is out now? Or something.

I tried Witcher 3 bc it was hailed as the greatest game ever. But after a few hours into it I couldn't get into it lol. I have a hard time with open world games bc I get lost easy. I've had Witcher3 for about 3 years now and just haven't been able to get back into it...

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne.
Wish we could of gotten more games with bullet time. I gotta say the first two max Paynes did it the best. Still can't believe they couldn't make a matrix game using the Max Payne engine...

The Specialists Half-Life mod was the best "Matrix" game with some bullet time.

Beat Pokemon Snap for the N64 last night. Thought I'd start the year by beating something short and easy.

Witcher 1 was painful to play. Had I played it back when it came out I might have enjoyed it a bit more. Story was solid IMO and it was fun after I retrained myself on old gameplay mechanics. Witcher 2 was an improvement, and I enjoyed the story on that one too. Witcher 3 is, IMO, above and beyond the previous two. I'm enjoying it a lot. My only gripe is that you come across contracts that require you to be level 30 when you're let's say a level 5. So if you're one of those people who need to play the game to 100%, I think it'd be frustrating. I might also enjoy 3 more since I played the previous two and learning the new game mechanics helped build on my experience and expectations.

I'm replaying the Uncharted games again. I don't want to start anything too big/daunting with so many big releases around the corner. These should occupy me until the overhauled versions of Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy release later in the month.

I enjoyed the heck out of Witcher 1. The story was great but the combat was pretty rough. Still I had a blast with it. I really need to get back to them. I started 2 but was having a hard time getting into it since it was so different from 1. I really need to get back to those one of these days.

Logged into world of warcraft. tried tanking, healer couldn't keep up. switched to healer, tank was lost, didn't know where to go or what to do, left. Waited for 10m for another tank, I just clicked Alt+F4.

Bought that Trials Dirt Bike game thing for $7. Guess I'll dub around with that.

I'm struggling so hard for a game.

Get a joystick and some appropriate games (Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries on Game Pass, and SW: Squadrons for example)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00009OY9U/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

"Game changer." (y)
I went and grabbed Trials Rising- a trials bike game. Having a blast with it. Neat game here. Cranking through it. THat was a solid buy for ~$7.

edit: as for the joystick, this logitech keyboard is the last thing I ever buy from the company. I am all done with them. But, that is a neat idea of adding peripherals to the game to add a spin on things. Steering wheel would be cool, but the setup I was interested in was like $700.

With the launch of the PC version of God of War, I'm replaying the PS5 version in NG+ mode.

I bought "Dangerous Driving" since my wife was craving more Burnout. I fired it up and man...the driving immediately feels cut rate as hell. Like 1-2 people made it in their spare time. Hopefully the whole game doesn't feel this cheap.

Give the Ori games a shot. They're among the best Metroid-vania titles anywhere. Beyond those, there's the Outer Worlds, Gears 4/5, Forza Horizons, along with a pile of EA and Bethesda titles. The EA titles install via Origin/EAApp so they aren't even UWP and you can mod/tweak 'em.

I beat all the ori games before they came to gamepass lol I think I've played everything Im interested in on game pass. The first time I got game pass I knocked out most of the games I was interested in like katana zero, cyber shadow, carrion, battle toads, all the new Battlefield single player etc

Playing Super Mario World.

Is any reason given why the colors on the map change, Koopas get Mario heads and Piranha Plants turn into pumpkins after Mario beats Special World? Did Mario tear a hole in the fabric of time and space and enter a parallel universe?

I might break out this new joystick and try Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries on Game Pass.

Or, I might try Valheim again after re-watching Vikings....

More likely than not though, I'll end up binging the Unbreakable trilogy and zoning out

Finished up Unsighted last weekend. I've been playing Dead Cells again since then. FedEx is now 15 days late delivering my Index, so I haven't tried that out yet. I hadn't played any of the newer updates or DLC for Dead Cells, so this has been fun to play again. Completely hooked... ...again...

I think Dead cells is on game pass. Might give it a try but I think it's considered rogue like game just can't get into those
