    I picked up Tokyo Xanadu EX+ for 12 bucks, and am enjoying it. It's a nice change-up form all the old Ys titles, while still having awesome combat.

    It looks like it's going to spawn a sequel, and I'd happily pick that up.

    Game is hard though. Had to turn it down to Easy for a boss battle after the first chapter...I must be getting old :D

    I think I might play Star Wars Force Unleashed for X360 on my XB1X. With XB1X it looks like all the screen tearing is gone!

    I know exactly what you mean. I think we are actually getting closer to good options for portable PC playing. Still a little way off I think until I jump, but there are some interesting things out there. I’m waiting for something with some panache. In the meantime, the Switch has me covered.

    Edit: Whoa, not sure how I traveled through time here. Must have hit some weird space-time ripple. :p I was reading this on my phone though (in my defense) when I replied.

    Detroit Become Human. It's free on PS+ (for at least one more day), and has been a delight. It isn't much of a "game" but it's a delightful story experience.

    Borderlands TPS.

    Been farming Felicity Rampant the last few days for a Quasar Grenade. Looking specifically for Longbow Sticky. Out of 71 runs she's dropped a Lobbed and a Longbow but nothing else.

    I discovered Baccarat last week and will play it intensively this weekend to figure out some kind of strategy in this game.

    I finally beat Shadowrun for SNES, been trying to finish this game since 1993.

    Now I'm on Shadowrun for Genesis. Not as good as the SNES game, but still good for the time.

    Nice!! I beat it a couple of years ago finally as well. I’m not a fan of a few of its systems, but overall, it’s an excellent game. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I’ve heard that most people prefer the Genesis one, but I’ve tried several times to get into it, and so far nothing.

    I think the Genesis version is more faithful to the source material, in that you actually go on runs yourself, but I just liked the SNES one better (maybe because I played it when it came out, so there is a nostalgia factor).

    League most likely. One day I will climb to Masters and not be a hard stuck diamond chump.

    Girlfriend likes to watch me play JRPGs for some reason when she is sick, so probably try to get through KH3 this weekend. Haven't played it yet.

    Finishing up Dishonored 2 this weekend and unsure if I'm going to go straight to the 'Death of the Outsider' expansion or try out Prey.

    I remember that game, Alan Wake, I haven't played it in ages but I remember rage quitting because it become too difficult. Even on the easy setting, maybe I was doing something wrong or just because I'm old (almost 38). Shame because I was liking the story.

    Anyways, I hope you enjoy the game and have better luck that I did.

    Playing Thief from 2014 Just finished chapter 4 outside this Inn where I upgraded my Blackjack.
    I read back in the day they let go the Square Enix let go the entire staff damn shame no wonder we never got another game.

    Prey was really good. It was sort of a sleeper, I didn't see many people talking about it but it was great.

    What I liked about the game is it starts out super hard, to the point where you have to run away from enemies at first. But then you get upgraded later and the enemies mostly stay the same strength so it's nice by the end.

    I have Alan Wake installed. I always wanted to play the game but I never got around to it. Hoping to finish that before I play Control.

    Still working my way through Assassin's Creed Odyssey. It is one of the best games I have played. Certainly the best in the last five or ten years.

    I'm on a cyberpunk marathon.

    Deep in Shadowrun for Genesis and also playing VA-11 Hall-A, which is quite an original find.

    Decided to replay Uncharted 2 (the HD remake version) after recently playing through 3, 4, and Lost Legacy.
    It's unmistakably the best of the bunch and the aiming is sooooo much better in the first two.

    Finally got past this one level I was stuck on like maybe 6-7 years ago in Deus Ex: Human Revolution I just took the wrong direction finally made it. My save was still there actually surprised cloud saves rule. They don't even sell the original version on Steam anymore just the directors cut.

    Wolfenstein Youngblood. Apparently you can't pause when playing offline, but a patch will be out soon for that. And you can't toggle aiming. You have to constantly hold down the aim button which is just terrible. Hope they add that in. Enemies are a bit spammy HP wise but it sounds like there will be another patch in the coming weeks to change that. If you're on the fence, I'd consider waiting 2-3 weeks before playing it. Wish I had known before I started. Otherwise it isn't that bad, but not great.

    Still on a BOTW fix. Had to laugh, my son has been playing OOT on the 3ds and kept asking how to get this, that and the other.

    Told him that he needed to figured out like we did growing up. Ask friends. He wasn't amused
