So for the people who liked Doom where did you feel it picked up the pace and really got good? Mostly what I’ve heard other people say is how fast paced it is and you blow away enemies like crazy but I never felt that way. Having to be careful to stop firing when they turned orange and melee them seemed to slow down the combat to me.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 (co-op with my 8 year old daughter) - love it!
Outer Worlds
Red Dead 2 - got sucked in for 3 hours last night after barely playing when it first came out. Took a while to remember what was going on and the controls!
Pinball FX3 - the new monster tables are great
And apparently downloading the LOTR card game since I didn’t know anything about it. Great advertising!

Currently playing:

Apex Legends, the new map has me hooked, I’m lvl 42 on season 3. My favorite legends are Bloodhound and Pathfinder. I’ve been getting about 3-5 kills a game lately assuming I don’t land in the hot spot and die instantly with no gun.

Borderlands 3, been playing coop with my wife. It’s super fun but has technical flaws. Still annoying how player 2 guns display in player 1s screen. Also we find we restart the Xbox one X just about every time we start playing because otherwise it lags bad. We just finished Pain and Terror boss and hit level 30. It’s super fun, we are having a great time playing it together.

The Outer Worlds, I got through the first segment, I sided with the evil corporations but haven’t even left the first planet yet. I’ll play this more after we finish Borderlands.

Mario Odyssey, I’ve been collecting the final moons we need with the kids, I think we’ve got 100% moons on 3 planets. Working our way through collecting them all but our joy cons have bad drift so I’m sending in the first for repair.

Kingdom Hearts 3, last Monday I was sick so I got through the first world (Hercules) while my 3 year old was watching.

Lonely Mountains: Downhill - my son’s and I have been having fun riding down the hills in that indie biking game that came to game pass.

I think that’s all I’ve been playing.

Having to be careful to stop firing when they turned orange and melee them seemed to slow down the combat to me.

It clicked for me once I realized you only need glory kills when you need hp and then I started playing it like Doom of old; always moving and circling the arena. I also liked the exploration right off the bat, how places you can climb are lit up with green and such.


I'm also a metal head so I was completely on board just to hear the music in each level.

Haven't played much in the last week or so.  

 

Week before last week I finished my second play through in BL3 with a new character.  Started a 3rd playthrough (True Vault Hunter) and got about 2/3 the way through.  Got stuck for a bit on a boss fight and stepped away from it and did some sides.  Got some better gear but haven't tried the boss fight again since.  

 

I really enjoyed it but can understand when people say the story did nothing for them.  I wasn't a big fan of the main villains

Spoiler
in this one.  

 

I need to do one of the circle of slaughters with my first character to get the trophy for doing all the missions (I think I have everything else).  But I really don't like playing the circle of slaughters until the one I need comes up.  Also don't care for the Zane character which is the character that has done all the other missions.  I can see me never using my level 50 Zane again after beating the last circle of slaughter I need.

 

Looking forward to the DLC.  Wish they would add a couple more vault hunters.

 

Want to start something.  Maybe The Outer Worlds in a couple weeks when I am on vacation.

I hope bing does a hot sale on Ms points. I'm sitting at 60,000 points and ready to cash out before black Friday digital sales.

I gotta buy all my games this year so I can play next year or two.

I'm still sitting in 2013 guys, but don't worry.  I'll play Outer Worlds some time next decade.  Don't wait up.

 

Actually playing Tomb Raider (2013) and enjoying it.  There are some memorable moments in the campaign and I like this Lara Croft because she's just a regular girl who survived a shipwreck and is turning into a warrior right before my eyes.

Having to be careful to stop firing when they turned orange and melee them seemed to slow down the combat to me.

I Think by the first few levels I was in, but maybe by the third or forth level when you get more enemy variety and start to figure out this weird murder dance of who to kill first I fully enjoyed it all the more. That and what was said earlier, glory kills for stunned enemies is mostly for when you need health. For the most part I was just running and jumping around everywhere and filling things with rockets or shotgun blasts.

I'm really excited for Xbox to have a reset on the console gen next year. I feel like the Xbox One has always been at a disadvantage with the Kinect at launch. Even when they ditched it we are still stuck with the large menu icons for games. I hope they create a more snappy home screen for the Xbox Scarlett. This time all of that juicy ram can go straight to the home screen and games instead of reserving some for Kinect. I wonder how much Ram these new systems will have, 16gb? I know its leaked to be GDDR6 RAM with a Custom AMD Zen 2-based CPU and Custom AMD Navi-based GPU, then add on the Solid-state drive and it should be pretty beefy.

 

I wonder if they will reveal it this week:

Tomb Raider is great. While I liked the reboots they did last gen, this was a vast improvement. I couldn’t get into Shadow but the first two were must plays.


I need to get back into Outer Worlds. Right now I’m too busy with my new Switch.

Playing Destiny 2 and trying to get this season’s seal/title is a chore. I love where the game is at currently, but not looking forward to that 980 Nightfall. Anyone else needing to do it?

Just wrapped up Outer Worlds. It was fun but ultimately a bit too shallow for my tastes. I then switched to Yakuza 0 and I am absolutely loving it. Great exploration, good writing, and fun sidequests that always feel like they've been crafted with care and aren't simply there for padding. Also been playing Luigi's Mansion 3 with my son and even though I'm limited to short play sessions I'm liking it a lot. It's such a breath of fresh air to play some truly unique and well crafted games from big developers after playing so many tedious open world games over the last few years.

Currently playing Guacamele Super Turbo Championship Edition, finished Guacamelee 2 (Awesome game) couple weeks ago, jumped into Luigi Mansion 3 (Excellent gameplay) and was craving for more Guacamelee, finished the original one on the Vita upon release but had not played the STCE. Highly recommend both Guacamelee games to anyone who has not tried them yet, gameplay is tight, can get a little challenging at times, and the story is funny and wacky as hell (specially on Guac 2)

How bad are they now? When I quit D2 I was the Nightfall drop Rocket Launcher away from Wayfarer, which was the only one you could get solo. Nowadays, barely anything is really soloable. Sad because D1 did such a great job of providing solo stuff alongside the team based stuff.

I don't think you NEED to do a 980 Ordeal (unless there is a Triumph you need that I'm not aware of).  I found out over the weekend that I'm going to need to complete all three Ritual weapons in order to get this season's title, and that seriously bummed me out.

As far as Ordeal Nightfalls is concerned, there are four levels of difficulty (750, 920, 950, 980).  The lower two Tiers have match-making which is nice, but the two more difficult ones do not (which makes sense because you need to be able to coordinate with your Fireteam on those).  The drops from Ordeal NF can be real nice, and the more difficult it is the better the rewards.

 

Of course, this is different than the regular Nightfalls which are also there but not really worth running (unless you're looking for a specific NF drop).  For some reason, they took away any rewards fo running them and they also removed the positive modifier from the Five of Swords card (Brawler, Grenadier, Heaveyweight) so I don't really run those anymore.

I’m at 11/14 triumphs completed for the Undying seal/title. One of the triumphs is to complete the Undying collections badge, which requires all three ritual weapons (I have Randy’s and Edgewise, working on Exit Strategy). The ship is part of the collection and unlocks after completion of The Ordeal on Master difficulty...it’s been a journey so far.

If I don’t complete the seal in time, I will at least walk away from the season with the three ritual weapons, Recluse, 5 valor resets, 100+ season pass rank, and most likely Izanagi’s. I play solo and don’t have a group for raids or else I’d go for Divinity.

Yep that is me. It is a very specific demographic that this game appeals to. Try to finally finish up the main storyline, but get distracted by a repetitive boring event that you have done dozens of times already just in case you can grind out some decent gear from it, then spend an hour managing inventory and selling to vendors. Living the dream.

and Doom is one of the best games ever. It clicks when you find a speed that fits for you. I had to adjust the controls and slowly put everything back to normal when I got the hang of it. I only need one more achievement that I know I will never get. The multiplayer is super awesome too.
