Finished my playthrough of hellblade: Senua's sacrifice. Its one of the more stressful gameplay experiences I have had. Its a combination of the light and darkness, the constant noises in her head and the story being told in combination with the excellent animations of senua.

I am playing a lot of Street Fighter V, but I am terrible. Pretty much everyone in both casual and ranked mops the floor with me. Yet I refuse to give up. "Fighting game is something so great."

Tried playing Fallout 4 again since I never beat it the first time. It does not play well with ultrawide. I installed some mods and got it working, then decided to install the HD textures (68GB, ouch). At this point I had probably already played for 6 hours. Well, that broke everything. UI was all messed up. Then it froze up at the menu every time. So, screw that.

Dead Cells, some LoL arams, and small amount of Conan Exiles. My Khitan village is impossible to wall in. I may just tear down the thousands worth or bricks that I put into it.

Thinking about Prey or Horizon: Zero Dawn next.

Got Two Point Hospital, because the simulator itch in my brain hasn't been scratched since Anno 2070. Feels good, man. I can retire my copy of Theme Hospital.

For others who may be interested in the game be warned that Sega snuck in Denovo copy protection at the last minute (it wasnít listed as being present when I preordered).

I guess this is supposed to be fabulous in VR.  I bought it, but haven't played it.

Skyrim VR is still the best video game probably ever, so that is what I do with most of my gaming time.

Mostly Dead Cells.  I wish I had a way to practice Hand of the King, he's still ruining the bulk of my good runs.

Excited to get home tonight and play Dragon Quest XI.  Been playing a little DQ 8 on my phone in the meantime.

My save file in Fallout 4 is dated Aug 2016 but I played that last night for some reason.

So far it seems like the best DQ yet, but I'm only an hour or two in. So pretty.

That said, I maybe should have bought Spiderman instead because web slinging looks awesome. Ah well, there's always next month.

So far, DragonQuest XI is pure shit. But let me spend another night with it.

EDIT: Ok that's too harsh, but wow the characters and the story in the first two hours are so bad that it almost feels like the parody of a generic JRPG. I am all in with the old school mechanics and lack of innovation, it's why I bought the game. But I have rarely seen such an uninteresting bunch of people in the beginning of ANY rpg.

I've now taken to quoting Darkest Dungeon in every day life. And making up similar quotes, in the narrator's voice. Also quoting Lovecraft.

Itís Dragon Quest. If youíre in it for the story youíre doing it wrong. The writers know itís a parody and the mechanics are ancient by modern standards. Iíll get my 100-150 hours out of it no problem.

I played DQ1 (Dragon Warrior) on NES with my dad, we rented the game from a local video store and played it for two weeks straight together, from start to finish. I'm pretty sure we spent more in rental fees than the game cost.

DQ games might not be the best rpgs, but for me it always reminds me of good times with my dad which were few and far between as I was growing up.

If the story isn't good and the mechanics are ancient, what's the draw that keeps you playing that long?

It's the known quantity of being able to just pick up a DQ game and have a pretty good idea of exactly what you're going to get. I've heard the Japanese call it "video game comfort food".

Of course, that tends to mean that if you've played one DQ game past maybe the first couple, you've more or less played them all.

The idea that it is an old school, cliched rpg is actually drawing my interest.  It is turn based, no?  The original Dragon Quest is - while not on my non-existant top 10 list - one of the most influentual games I have ever played.

I unsuccessfully tried to start 3 different playthroughs of Hollow Knight on Switch which I all abandoned a few hours in because of the way the in-game map system works. Wandering aimlessly around large samey looking levels and getting utterly lost in the process because I somehow missed the map guy is not my kind of fun, apparently.

I also played through Guacamelee! 2. Which is more of the same just with more cruft added on top of the mechanics while fixing none of the flaws of the original game. Getting the good ending in that game requires you to suffer though a lot of bullshit gauntlets using controls that are never tight and precise enough to make you feel in control over what the game demands of you. So just like the first game.

I also tried The Golf Club 2019 which is PGA branded and distributed by 2K but looks and feels like an early access steam release with stock Unity assets and has one of the most weird shot mechanics I've ever seen in a computer golf game. This game feels only half finished, looks ugly - even compared to the abomination that is Rory McIlroy's PGA tour by EA - and lacks content but is somehow a full price title. Thank God for refunds.

So I ended up playing the 8,99 Picross! on Switch instead

I've played - and loved - the first installment when it came out on Switch last year and only now realized that they have put out a second one. As a bonus it's only 8,99 on the Switch store so it was a no-brainer.

53 hours in Dead Cells. Yikes.

Tried the D:0S2 DE. I may have just put too much of this game  (112 hours) to appreciate the differences. I haven't noticed many so far. Also, this is like the fourth or fifth time I've done Fort Joy.  awesome, for real

Done with LoL for now. Somehow this game is really difficult to play while playing Dead Cells at the same time. I guess you know you're old when going from controller to mouse/keyboard during the same gaming session throws you off. Plus, I've gotten to the point where my MMR in ARAM has me playing with/against people that are WAAAAY better than I am. Also, there are more assholes per game. Not surprising.

Started Prey. Manages to be creepy even though I was prepared for creepiness going in. I heard it has a poor final act, but so far this seems pretty System Shock 2ish. I like.

It pretty much stays System Shockish throughout and I didn't find the final act any less good than the rest.

It was a surprisingly enjoyable romp.
