@sib played a couple of hours of Katana Zero, but unfortunately it's not really clicking with me. Interesting premise, and nothing really wrong with it, but just not for me I'm afraid.

Ah, fair enough - one of the great benefits of Game Pass..!

After a break to play the Castlevania GBA collection and Metroid, I came back to Andromeda that I am now probably 2/3 of the way and still loving it (yes, the animations are still kind of jank but the narrative is really good and the setting superb). Also played a bit o Scarlett Nexus (end of chapter 1) and most likely will be my go to after I am done with Andromeda

I only got to play it for an hour or so today as it took me longer than I expected to finish up Scarlet Nexus today, but so far I'm enjoying it. I put it off even though I was really looking forward to it due to the mediocre reviews, but it made sense to finally give it a shot since it's October.

I'm playing through unruly heroes before it leaves gamepass. FH4 and Halo 4 are on hold as i try and play through half the games that are leaving at the end of the month. Celeste or Knights and Bikes are next

Tried Carto before it leaves Game Pass. Interesting gimmick with moving the segments of the map to solve the puzzles, but played the first couple of chapters an didn't really have the urge to carry on any further so doubt I'll finish before it leaves. Want to try Knights & Bikes and maybe Unruly Heroes too, but working away from home for the next week or so (with terrible internet) so probably wont get those played either.

I stopped playing Scarlett Nexus on the 12th chapter (and I believe it is the final chapter) as I feel the boss fight is broken for me as after mant attempts not being able to do anything against its final stage I went online to see what I was doing wrong and I found the move the boss is doing again and again and again it is something the guy on the YouTube video said it is the only move he has not seen him do (and this move has no oppening for attack). I am not too bothered as I never really liked the game that much to begin with and could only play it in small bursts. It has at the same time too many cutscenes and the combat is just ok but never great. Said that I want to check the ending and some bond sequences.
Following that I tried echo generations for a bit but the artstyle is not to my taste and have now started Control

Halo Wars 2. Better several years late than never. I enjoyed the first one, but kept putting this off for no real good reason. Now that Infinite is about to come out, again, better really late than never.

Quantum Break. Enjoying it so far after about an hour and a half.

There's no Xbox 360 thread for this, but I'm playing Dragon Age 2 now that I'm done with Quantum Break. I sadly never played this back in the day as I missed out on several games I would have normally played on the 360 after I got a PS3. Anyways, seemed like a good time after it got on the latest FPS Boost list.

I finally gave up on San Andreas when I am missing just a couple of missions. Unfortunately the bugs got the best of me. Had to repeat a mission 3 times with no success as CJ gets stuck in the enviroment everytime it loads the after a cutscene ...
Just started mortal shell (but not sure I will stick with it yet)

@Balta666 You can find a game that you will start and finish. I have faith in you.

An added note to my post from last night. Not only is it amazing to be playing a 10 year old game like Dragon Age 2 in 60 FPS, but it's also amazing that Quick Resume works with a 10 year old game. I was shocked when it actually worked.

@KilloWertz hehe for sure. Actually I bought Symphony of the night so I know I will finish that soon

I just started up Halo Wars last night after finishing Halo 5. The march towards Infinite continues!

Well not so sure I will beat Symphony of night after all .
It is the first time I am playing it and I love metroidvanias but this game is just not clinking with me. The first half of the game is super easy up to the big boss fight and the second half has a huuuge difficulty spike that is just boring as heck. I am loosing 10-20min chunks of game very often and altough I am only missing two parts i am not sure I want to go back.

@Balta666 There was a stretch last year where I played a few games or so in a row that I never finished, as I am reminded of every time I scroll through my achievements, but I got out of that rut and hopefully you do too.

Pick something obvious. There has to be something you haven't played that is pretty much a guarantee.

Started Tiny Tina's Assault On Dragonkeep today and I am having alot of fun with it. It's easy to see why so many people say this was the best DLC for Borderlands 2. I am playing the stand alone version as I don't have a character high enough to play it with Borderlands 2.

I am playing it with my son and we are doing a Kreig/Maya team where I am doing a healer Maya build and it's working really well. We got some decent gear including the Magic Missel grenade mod and we just hit level ten.

One thing I will say with the standalone version is if you never played Borderlands 2 and are remotely Interested in the story do not get the stand alone version of Tiny Tina's because it contains alot of.spoilers which obviously should because it was the last DLC released for BL2 so it makes sense. However if you have no interest in BL2 story or like me played BL2 in the past but never got hight enough level for Tiny Tina's DLC then this is a great way to experience it.

Can't wait for the new one next year.
