Sea of Solitude

6.1 hours, 14 of 22 achievements

It was okay. Some serious overacting, and pretty cliche. Still, the game itself was pretty and the puzzles, although not complex, were decent enough. Overall, giving this a meh rating. Played on the PS4 via EA Access.


Fe

7.0 hours, 7 of 12 achievements

Pretty much a game about nothing. Interesting song mechanic, but a lot of parkour puzzles that can get frustrating. Other than that, I thought the level design and gameplay was decent and the game was also pretty. Played on the PS4 as part of EA Access.


PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS

13.4 hours, 7 of 37 achievements

Click to expand

Also played on the PS4 despite also owning it on Steam. It is cross play, so ultimately the venue doesn't so much matter. Fun enough, although I'm definitely getting map fatigue, and I was a little disappointed to be killed in solo only to watch as the death cam revealed a team working together despite it being solo and despite 4 player matches being available. Good change of pace, but I'm just about ready to move on.


Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

47.2 hours, 19 of 34 achievements

Also played on the PS4. Tons of fun, although map fatigue has definitely set in, and the recent update didn't do much to entice me back, although Season 2 certainly will. Fairly well a must play for you and your kids if you have any.


Rogue Company

12.8 hours, no achievements

It was okay, but at the point where I got bored of it, it was still in beta or what have you. That said, I think there is really only so much fun to be had from 4 vs 4 matches on only a couple maps, and with randoms who generally just run off in whatever direction lol. Certainly worth trying for free, but it gets old fast despite being fairly slick, with decent feeling guns and such.


Halo: The Master Chief Collection

32.3 hours, 88 of 700 achievements

Alright. Halo 3 is done and dusted. Really a great conclusion to the Bungie series, so to speak. Also, the only one of those that I had never actually played. This one wasn't really a remaster from what I can tell like Reach, 1 and 2 were. The graphics were nice, but I'd guess they aren't that different from the original version. Anyway, yet another quality addition to the Master Chief Collection. Once again, this was around 8 hours, making that (for me at least) a consistent playtime for each of the available Halo entries in the collection. Looking forward to seeing what ODST has to offer. I've played it before, but I never finished that one…and then 4 to close out the collection, which I also never finished (although I do still have a couple of those sweet Halo 4 gamepads around here somewhere).


Alright, the following are done and dusted:

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

0 hours, no achievements

Man. It took me a long time to get around to buying and playing this one. One one hand, I was a bit disappointed by how pulpy and comical it was, even when trying to be serious. It was just a game that refused to take itself seriously. On the other hand, it was still a completely fun ARPG, and the dialogue, banter between characters, and so on was pretty cool. Graphics held up perfectly, but that is a bit easier given the style I think. Anyway, I'm not exactly sure how long it took to finish the campaign. Probably in the 25-30 hour range I'm guessing. Played as Monk btw. Until the final boss fight, I actually did not die once. I did die twice during the last battle though. Default difficulty. Anyway, I doubt I'll replay it or do any of the rifts, but it was cool.

I do think people who are used to Diablo 3's presentation are going to be taken aback by Diablo 4's seeming return to horror. Should be fun internetting lol. Looking forward to D4 personally though.


Halo 2: Anniversary Edition

26.2 hours, 73 of 700 achievements

Halo 2 is still a stunner, and a definite step up from Halo 1 as far as pretty much everything is concerned. Level design, pacing, story, voice acting, graphics….it's got it all. Plus, switching between the Arbiter and Master Chief to provide different perspectives heading towards the same inevitable outcome was really cool, and the side characters were much better developed such as they are. The Sarge in particular is a fave. It's also consistent with the other games in the series at about 8 hours in length. Halo 2 is still a must play even today. Anyway, I actually never played Halo 3, so I'm looking forward to jumping into that next.


Let’s see. Since my last update, I’ve played a ton of games, finished a few. They are:

Hero of the Kingdom II and Hero of the Kingdom III: Yeah, both were fun, hidden object meets resource management games. Perfect casual/mobile games. I don’t recall a ton about their stories, but overall, they were just good simple gaming experiences.

Crysis 2 - Maximum Edition: On one hand, this game is still a marvel even today. On the other, it shows its age in level design and generally started to wear out its welcome around hour seven. At that point, I decided to cheese most of the rest of the game, which can be accomplished by using your suits speed to literally run past enemies to the level end. There are a few scripted sequences where you can’t do this, but I’d say you can probably do so for like half the game, triggering cutscenes and basically enjoying the best part of the game (the cutscenes and story in general). Is the gameplay tight? Yes. Did Crytek open up the corridors in this shooter and allow for a few different ways to approach most levels? Yes. Are the suit abilities cool? Yes. In general, the main thing I objected to with Crysis 2 was its actual length relative to the gameplay. For me at least, this should have ended right about the point you find yourself around 60% of the way through, and that could’ve been accomplished by scaling the pointless encounters back. But, I suppose it just wouldn’t be a mostly corridor shooter from Gen 7 if that wasn’t the case lol. Otherwise, still an excellent if somewhat boring FPS at this point.

Crysis 3: In contrast to 2, Crysis 3 was the perfect length at about 7-10 hours depending on how fast you play. Additionally, the time in between 2 and 3 allowed Crytek to make much better use of the gen 7 capabilities, be they console or PC. Also, it was just a lot more fun in general. The story was better, the gameplay was better, the level design was better. The only thing that was not as good was some of the voice acting and dialogue, which had Prophet whining a lot for some reason. Other than that though, immaculate experience and really one that holds up perfectly well today.

The Last of Us 2: Best game of the year IMO. I’m not going to get into all the internet crap, but it is largely unjustified. The ending itself will probably be divisive (my wife hated it, but I was hoping it would end basically the way it did), but as to the rest, other than being probably ten hours longer than it probably should have been (My run on mostly hard took about 30-35 hours roughly), TLOU2 was spot on in pretty much every way, and that ten-ish hours of filler was enjoyable for me personally. There is also a ton….ton of nuance that was pretty brilliant IMO. But yeah, Abby and Lev were both really cool characters and the game was great. Graphics were insane. Voice acting was as good as it gets. Memorable.

Retired

Desperados 3: Great game with shit cameras that I don’t enjoy battling.
Warsaw: Love turn based tactical type games. Did not find this one to be all that thrilling. It’s okay, and I probably got my expectations up too high for this one, but ultimately, it just didn’t grab me.

It turns out that if you complete Cyrano Story (for me, my 7th time out), you’ll be gifted a copy of Moons of Madness from Funcom. As to Cyrano Story itself, it’s free and actually a pretty cool Cthulhu puzzle game that incorporates real life internet searches to complete them (although there is also a complete walkthrough on Steam). The first run post update (pre update, it wouldn’t recognize your answers), took about 40 minutes, most of which being listening to the audio logs. Each subsequent run only takes like a minute though since the actual answers never change. By the way, it’s k/m only, and you basically just click on any clickables and type out your answers. I liked it, and of course there was a nice bonus at the end.

Assassin’s Creed II is done and dusted. I played this on the 360 long ago, but I didn’t really remember the whole game, so I thought I’d revisit it. I can say that unintentional parkour and the occasional stiff controls are still a thing of course, and there are some audio glitches from time to time, but the story is great and the game itself holds up quite well to today’s standards. This run weighed in at about 27 hours with most optional stuff that was story related complete, including the “Truth” of course, which I always found funny considering how religious a lot of people are. Always curious how believers take that aspect of the story lol.

I’m about 5 hours into Fallen Order right now, so I think I’ll wrap that one up next. I’ll also jump into Brotherhood since I never did get around to playing that previously, see how Ezio’s tale unfolds.

Undecided about Crysis 2. On one hand, I’m already 7ish hours in and can probably literally run through most of the rest of the game in a couple hours, but I can’t decide if I want to or not. The game holds up immaculately, but that corridor shooter design (even with the occasional branching layout) wears me out a little. That said, you can literally just run by the enemies on a lot of levels, ignoring them and getting to the next section without even firing your gun or trying to stealth lol. That is an oversight you rarely find in games (or that I rarely find in games anyway).

Call of Duty: Ghosts is done and dusted. This one had a really good campaign, albeit with a cliffhanger ending that will never see a conclusion, but be that as it may, it was really a lot of fun.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is also done and dusted. The game was very silly, but also pretty awesome overall. Everybody is obviously an exaggeration in the game and their personalities reflect this fact, but man were they cool IMO. Anyway, had a good time with it.

Well, Halo: The Master Chief Collection - Combat Evolved is done and dusted. The reskin was very nice and being able to switch between that and the original was cool. Definitely illustrates the advances in graphics since Halo 1 originally released. Anyway, beyond that, it’s the same awesome gameplay with the same shit level design. Getting turned around in Halo 1 is both possible and likely, but beyond that, it’s still a pretty great game.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection - Reach is done and dusted. You know, I don’t remember Reach being so short when I played it on my 360, but I wrapped up Reach’s campaign in about 6 hours. It was as fun as I remember it being in the past. Only real negative was the frequent audio bugs that made it sound like my speaker was blown. Beyond that though, it was still a very fun game that holds up quite well today. I’ll probably roll through the Halo 1 campaign next, and then wait for Halo 2 to be released in the package.

I also have been playing:

Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, which is still pretty remarkable even ten years later. Outside of the kind of boring corridor shooter layout (despite there typically being several ways to complete a section), it holds up immaculately and is a pretty fun game. That said, it hasn’t wanted to open over the last couple days. Not sure what’s up with that. I’m probably about half way through though.

Remnant: From the Ashes, which is Dark Souls with more emphasis on guns, level design more similar to Code Vein, and some tight gameplay. I can’t say I’m wowed by it, but it’s one of the better 3D Soulsborne games I’ve played recently. That said, I don’t know that I’m really feeling it right now. We’ll see. I think I’ll try co-op out and see how that goes.

Strange Brigade is done and dusted. Honestly, the game was pretty awesome. It had 100% fun factor including ridiculous pulp narration, solid gunplay and abilities, and fun level design. I just wish people were playing this still.

Call of Duty: WWII is also done and dusted. The campaign was fun, if quite cliche. Yeah. Worth playing for the campaign if you got this when it was in a Humble Monthly. Regular Activision pricing though, not so much. I didn’t really rush things, and all told it took me around 7 hours to complete. If you like the MP/Zombies aspect of CoD games, you’ll probably find better value, but I didn’t feel like downloading that part of the game to find out.
