Yea, it's a horrible week for gamers. What's next, multiplayer-only games?

Well Best Buy is ending GCU so there's that.

Man, the combat in Yakuza 0 is so damn frustrating.

Also, I'm enjoying Majima's story way more than Kiryu's right now.

It feels better when you unlock more combos and stuff in the menus. It's hard to do that though until you have a ton of cash.

I never really notice a difference when running those custom profiles. Even when I use them for the game they're intended for.

I feel like Arms is gonna become a Nintendo selects title at some point whenever those start coming to switch. I can't see myself paying any more than $20ish for it.

New thread! Hopefully more deals will be posted like before.

I mean hopefully, but there isn't many contributors left to do it.

Played through batman the telltale series a couple days ago. It was a solid story but I didn't feel like too many of my choices actually mattered.

In other news, however, my Christmas break is over in two days, but going over my posts between here and the niche thread, it looks like I finished 8 games over the past month. I think that's more than the rest of 2017 for me. My goal is to avoid multiplayer games for the small amount of free time I will have during my semester so I can hopefully knock out another big game or two before summer.

Finally got around to finishing endings A-E of Nier automata. There were definitely a couple high points, but I still could never really get into it the whole way through. I'm happy I'm done with it, but I still don't really understand the hype around the game.

Finished all three episodes of life is strange before the storm. Nothing much to say beyond you'll probably like it if you like the first game.

Beat assassin's creed origins. I would have liked to take my time with the game, but I'm still purging the back log. It was a fine game overall but I really hated needing to be a certain level to play another story mission. Having to arbitrarily grind random side quests was rather annoying.

Played through the main campaign of yakuza Kiwami. It reminded me how much I hate gun mechanics in the series, but it was alright overall. I'm bummed that I bought it at launch for the steelbook but I didn't actually get around to playing it until the steelbook version was seeing discounts over 50%.

Played through dishonored death of the outsider and reloaded my last save to get both endings. Since I'm in backlog purge mode I just did one playthrough without being seen, but I'm holding off on the plat for now until I can finish more games.
Edit: NVM I caved. Went back and got the plat. Now on to assassin's creed origins.

Finished the main campaign and some side missions for watchdogs 2. I really hated or was ambivalent toward all of the characters in the game. It was seemed inconsistent how a group of hipsters could go on about exposing the injustices of society while shooting and blowing everything up on their way there. Several times over the course of the story the main character would wine about how innocent he was, sometimes in the middle of missions where I had just shot my way through two dozen guys and destroyed tons of public property to get there.

At least in a game like GTA the whole premise revolves around being a crazy asshole. Watchdogs 2 doesn't seem to have a consistent theme and it's really grating on the whole experience.

Finally my semester is over and I can work on plowing through the back log for the next 3 weeks. I started of strong with a plat in the new South Park game. I'm hoping to finish at least 3-5 more games before I start back up with another 18 credit hours and a part time marketing co op.
