I never preorder anything but last night I preordered the Horizon expansion via PSN.  I won't even get a disc to unwrap.

Chemically addicted to PoE.  Found a nice Shadow Build that's similar to my Wizard build in Diablo 3 (you run around exploding and blowing everything up in an orgasmic shower of loot) and it's just great.

I honestly think this might be 'the most improved game' I've ever played.  Or maybe I was just jonesing for a better Diablo 2 for ages.

Finished salt and sanctuary or as it might have been called, souls and sanctuary. Interesting area design combined with the brands but the boss design wore a bit thin during the second half of the game. It was good but not great.

Started playing Ever Oasis on 3DS. It kinda feels like a cross between Dark Cloud and Animal Crossing. I'm only a few hours in so far but it's pretty fun.

New experimental build of 7D2D. Holy crap is this new Alpha amazing. When it hits stable, well worth checking out.

New spawn system, POIs and traps, which seem cool and normal Alpha updates. But they all come together in some of the new building POIs to create a whole new angle to the gaming. The construction site is kind of a platformer, nicely laid out and tense as you keep having to fight on higher and higher ground.

Super late on some of this stuff, but I finally went through Mass Effect 3. I know people griped about it at release, so maybe it was the DLC, but I was pretty happy with it overall. Only gripe is that I didn't think to go scrounging for save files before starting up (didn't have my own available), so I wasn't able to take full advantage of decisions made in Mass Effect 1 and 2. I was pretty happy with how it wrapped up.

Continuing in a vein of overdue playthroughs, I've started Dragon Age: Inquisition. The combat is OK, I like some of the characters and mechanics they introduced. My only issue so far is that the zones are much larger than the previous games, so the completionist in me demands that I do as much of the first zone as possible before moving on. I'm digging the War Table so far, but we'll see how relevant it is moving forward. I think one of my favorite touches so far is the art for the tarot cards representing each character - they're a nice touch.

Also, random matches of World of Tanks. A game that is getting pretty annoying with the introduction of several premium tanks that are often superior to the normal tanks, which is a definite departure from past practice of releasing premium tanks that were competitive without being clearly OP.

So Hollow Knight is fantastic.  Imagine if Super Metroid had modern graphics/sound and enough variety in the combat and traversal mechanics to keep it fresh for a dozen or more hours instead of four.

The level design is smart, with a charming and melancholic aesthetic based around insects.  Thereís lots of interconnectivity both in the world map and at room scale.  Particularly tricky sections are usually gated such that you can easily skip them after doing it the proper way once. 

Killing enemies constantly refills a small resource pool thatís used either for offensive moves or for healing.  This lets you recover from mistakes easily but if your play is bad or if youíre overextending it catches up with you.  This happens organically rather than all at once though, which smooths things out.  It also lets you zip around and feel really powerful once you get a few moves and become familiar with the enemiesí movesets.

My only real gripe is the way the mapping is handled.  You donít start with a map but build it up by buying one from a vendor in each zone.  They are always partially filled in but only update at checkpoints rather than as you explore, and they donít start filling in until youíve bought the map.  The deeper zones were complex enough that I felt like I was diving for the cartographer then reversing course back to a checkpoint so I could get my bearings.  The check-pointing is good but fast travel is sparse.  This leads to a decent amount of backtracking for those interested in collecting All The Things but combat/platforming was fun enough that I didnít mind at all.

Highly recommend to anyone with an interest in Metroidvanias.

Strazos, do yourself a favour and get out of that first zone as soon as you can. It's the most boring in the game and if you insist on completing it you'll burn out and never finish the game. Go back and finish it in short bursts between the better stuff.

Arinon, are you playing Hollow Knight with keyboard or a controller?  I fiddled around with it on my laptop the other day and didn't enjoy the keyboard controls that much.  It may just be practice, though.

Bought a PS4 and Persona 5 finally. Got about an hour into it and HOLY SHIT, is this game just one of the most amazing visual masterpieces of design ever or what? Gameplay wise it's Persona, so it'll be good once I actually get into the gameplay portion of the game. It's entire meta narrative nature is just cool as shit.

I got GTA5 for free with it (which is also amazing looking), Madden 17 and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster because Gamestop was running a B2G1 Free promo on used games so figured why not. In addition, I started a play through of Final Fantasy VII on the PC ($6 Steam sale so why not), Pike and Shot Campaigns, Football Manager 2017, Hex, League of Legends and whatever else tickles my fancy when I have time. Not that I have nearly enough time for any of these things.

Been playing Injustice 2 on the XBone, because I'm a sucker for fighting games even though I'm nothing but a sucky button masher.

I like that the campaign is basically just an animated DC movie, with fights interspersed. The game also has a massive grinding random loot box system, that I'm also a sucker for.

Unfortunately, I'm now suffering from controller thumb.

I'll be waiting here after you play Horizon Zero Dawn.

As usual, I get distracted.  Playing Vermintide a little, and it's fun playing Victor slicing off skaven heads.

Then I started playing Mordheim, which is pretty fun.  My warband is full of incompetents and sometimes I feel it is just for them to lose an eye or leg because of it.

I finally got over whatever my hangup was and downloaded Symphony of the Night on my Vita.  That's still fun.  I switched back and to SotN and Salt & Sanctuary over the weekend.

Then I get home and put an hour into Atelier Sophie.  Not sure when I'm going to be able to co-op 7 Days again.

You know, for some reason, that one just doesn't seem to interest me at all. I'm willing to be persuaded otherwise (not that I need anymore new games to play now).  why so serious?

Yeah, it's weird how the zones after Hinterlands (the swamp, sea shore, and the desert oasis) are all much more reasonable in scope. The difference is quite stark, and I cannot figure out why.

I've been playing a lot of Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Randomizer.

A mod that adds a lot of QoL improvements (Skips text automatically, streamlines a few bits and pieces) and most importantly randomizes item locations.

Locations are randomized and a few things patched in a way so that you can complete alll dungeons and the game without glitches or sequence breaks. It also adds custom sprites for the player, new modes and it also adds a completion tracker (displayed during the credits) and a spoiler feature (text file listing all item locations)

Modes include.

Classic: normal game except randomized.
Open: skips the escape out of Hyrule and starts you swordless  up you can find a sword later
Swordless: swords are removed from the game, all bosses have to be killed using items only
Time attack: you have limited time but can collect time extension items.
1 hit k.o.: one hit kills you.

You need an emulator and a jaoanese 1.0 ROM to run this but it's loads of fun.

Horizon: Zero Dawn is good stuff.  Not only enjoyable gameplay, but some fantastic sci-fi story telling in a game. 

It and Hollow Knight are at the top of my list of GOTY2017.

I am really enjoying Persona 5 as well, and 70-ish hours into it, but while it represents huge quality of life improvements over the existing Persona systems and is indeed stylish as all hell, it suffers from a lot of really clunky aimed-at-middleschool-boys JRPG writing, which has detracted from the experience throughout.

7 Days to Die released the stable build of the current Alpha. It's pretty stable, I've been playing the experimental builds without much in the way of problems (from the game, but I think it's time for a new PSU).

It's a huge content release with several new systems that work well together (new POIs, spawn system, traps).

So looks like it's time to dig into it in earnest after screwing around with experimentals for the last couple weeks!

Best I've done solo in PUBG is 5th, which happened on my second damn game. 

Did get a chicken dinner tonight as a duo though.

I've probably put in about 15h since the steam sale ended.  Getting better but I'll never be that good.  My ability to pick out hidden movement is garbage.

Secret to winning games in pubg is to avoid being seen until late game.  The game has a serious design flaw in that it rewards camping quite heavily.  I'm pretty terrible at the game and have still managed a few wins in duo and team just by staying out of sight until the late game.  I hope that the developers recognize this and do more to reward players that venture out and/or get more kills.

You do get more points for more kills, but the points are a joke right now. Usually I try to jump out of the plane somewhere away from the "main" thrust of players so I can grab some gear in peace. Usually works unless the first zone ends up being the other side of the map and I can't find a damn vehicle. That strategy usually gets me in the last 50 (out of 99) before I encounter anyone.

Ya, but that's boring. I've been jumping into big towns because it's super tense.  Works out sometimes, sometimes it doesn't.

I'd say camping is a strategy yes, but you need to be looting as much as possible: med packs + pain killers near the end make a huge difference in the 20m circle fights.

I'm playing on a vanilla WoW server. I can't believe how much I like the game in base state.

Also I'm playing FFxii remake, which I obviously played on PS2 because I remember tidbits. However, I really can't remember the specifics of the game at all. Which is strange, because I really like it. The gambit system is really flipping cool after having gone to school for programming since the last time I played this.

Another thing I didn't realize is how much of FF14 is lifted from FF12. The aesthetics, icons, the feel of the characters and art... Very cool.
