I find Gamestop's reward section so confusing. Last night I thought I was using my points to get a $5 off cert for online only and ended up getting one that was in-store only. So I showed up at Gamestop at 10:59 this morning and was the first person in the door. I got Astrobot and the employee that pulled it out laughed because I got the last copy. He thought it was kinda funny that they only had 1 copy of 1 of their big advertised specials.

Anybody check out Bountymode? Indiegala seems to be partnering with them. It's supposed to be a site where you play games and earn free stuff: https://bountymode.c...ountymode-beta/

While watching acl, I started looking at 2018 games. The last quarter this year looks more lackluster than normal. I'm sure RDR2 will be good, but not sure if I'll be able to get into it considering I didn't like the previous one the little I played it. Not sure if Blackout will be enough to get CODBlops 4 on my favorites list but I was surprised that I already have a pretty good top 11:
Slay the Spire
Spider-man
Dead Cells
Shadowhand
God of War
Detroit
forza h4
sea of thieves
battle chef
a way out
Into the Breach
 
These are the games I most need to play:
celeste
astro bot
messenger
life is strange2
donut county
yoku's island express

Bought Hollow Knight this weekend since it was only $8.50 with the humble monthly discount and I have several friends buying it for the Switch. I've also seen a bunch of people online over the last few months getting really into the game.

 

It seems fine, but I don't get the hype. I played for 90 minutes, but don't really have a desire to go back to it. Maybe it's that I've been playing a bunch of Dead Cells lately, but Dead Cells is better in every way. Also, the last Metroidvania game I played, SteamWorld Dig 2 was better than this game in every way. I know Hollow Knight is somewhat different from both those games, but I just don't see what in the game is supposed to make me want to play it.

 

Maybe it's not fair to compare to 2 games I loved, but having only 1 attack makes combat so boring, especially with respawning enemies. Traversal through the world is incredibly boring and I'm constantly lost since there's nothing interesting in the game to help me make a note of where things are. There's more backtracking in this game than any other Metroidvania I've ever played. 

 

I'll probably try to push through some more, but I have no idea where to go or what to buy in the game at this point, so that's going to make it a bit hard to get motivated to load it up again.
