...I'm still working on Trial of the Fool in Hollow Knight. I'm starting to wonder if I should just go ahead and finish the game at this point.

...doubling back tot he shooters convo from a few posts back, I'm starting to get back into these games now. I've picked up a few lately (Gaiares, Otomedius Excellent, Battle Gareega Rev.2016, and Caladrius Blaze) and I have my eye on a few more that I missed and look interesting (Akai Katana, Raiden V, Vasara Collection, Chaos Field, Silpheed Lost Planet, Astebreed, Guwange, and Triggerheart Exelica) and still have plenty of others to get caught up on. I honestly don't have enough time in the day all of this :lol:

Playing chicken little for wii, pretty fun 3rd person platformer/shooter/space fighting game. Gives off a bit of a ratchet and clank vibe, with a great control scheme, I love the way wii handles shooters.

Tomorrow I'm definitely starting bloodstained: curse of the moon 2, I work half day Fridays so I should be home by noon to start it, I'm tempted to bring my switch to work and hide in my office but I will exercise restraint.

Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay kind of reminded me of Half-Life 2 in the terms of how it flows the same way and blends through different environments seamlessly. I honestly enjoyed it more than Half-Life 2. Will hopefully make a video review of it soon, but still in the middle of the chaos of moving.

I was just playing DKC Tropical Freeze for the first time since it first came out on the Wii U. But I don't know what's going on, I'm having a hard time with the controls. Specially, the two action buttons. Which is grab and which is pound. I'm playing on the Switch now, but I don't remember having this issue when I was playing on the U.

I been playing a lot of Daemon X Machina and I think the game made a mistake. Since it's from some former Armored Core staff and since every From game has a Moonlight blade. DXM has something similar but only supposed to get it post-game hidden in a wall. I did an online solo mission and I found it in a room. I can't find a mention of this online. Every guide points to the post-game version. So pretty happy about that.

I started Bomberman Hero today, because I wanna get through my N64 Bomberman games that I went through so much trouble to buy before I try and get super into my PCE Mini :lol:

I remember enjoying it as a rental when I was a kid, and then I also remember quickly losing interesting in it when I tried it a couple years ago, but I'm enjoying it alright now~. From how I remember it based on my most recent attempt to play it, it plays a lot better than I remember it. It's a surprisingly competent 3D platformer that, while it ain't exactly settin' my world on fire, IS more Bomberman to have fun with, which is a win in my book :lol:

Playing some Silver. It's kinda like Diablo mixed with some Secret of Mana, except in a Resident Evil-style engine. Pretty fun so far and it handles voiced dialogue well with the option to skip sentences when you've read them.

playing iron man on wii, pretty fun mindless 3rd person shooter that follows the plot of the original movie complete with all of the voice actors from the movie.

I streamed two and a half hours of Shenmue 3 this morning, and while I went in thinking at most it'd be worth a giggle, I was a bit taken in by it, so I just kept playing once the stream was over (it was way too boring for more than one stream ^^;).
I'm not sure I'd say I'm loving it, but I'm enjoying the dopamine loop of progression at the very least. It's a very odd feeling of both enjoying something but also being unable to really recommend it at all. I think I'm just really in the mood for a game with this quiet, repetitive gameplay loop and fairly subdued story.
I think I'm nearing the climax of the first area, as far as story goes (I just met Sun for the first time and he answered my two questions). I already have enough yuan just from collecting herbs to be able to afford the super expensive wine, so I won't need to waste any time gambling until I'm blue in the face Xp

And while I'm certainly far from the first one to criticize the English voice acting of Shenmue 3, I honestly don't think the Japanese VA is that stellar either. The gameplay is repetitive, the story is poorly localized and not terribly well paced, and the combat is just a mess. But despite all that, I'm still enjoying it, so that certainly says something about the whole thing being more than the sum of its parts for me, I suppose.

It may've taken a good few months to get to it, but at last I'm playing (and enjoying) Shenmue 3, the gift to me from our very own Pierrot~

I started Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords on the Microsoft XBOX this afternoon!

I have only done the little Prologue, but so far, it feels exactly like KOTOR1, which is fantastic because I loved that game.

I know that they have made a few tweaks and the game isn't exactly finished when it was released, so I have lowered some of my expectations for it. But, so far, I am cautiously optimistic.
