@ralphdibny sorry! Been busy in the last week with summer ending and my career as an educator starting up again. But I wanted to share my thoughts. I spent the first two week of August playing through the original campaign as well as the three expansions and some side quests. I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised overall! Although I also feel like I agree with those who wish the game would have had a more linear, less loot oriented, direction.

The opening third of the campaign was surprisingly very captivating for me. I didn’t know much about Ms. Marvel (and I’ve seen most of the MCU movies but am not a super fan of Marvel) but I really enjoyed her abilities, and frankly, her story and personality. I would say my favorite to play as was Hawkeye once he came in the DLC.

I thought the Ms. Marvek story with Hulk was great. I wouldn’t say the end was anticlimactic, but I was definitely more engrossed in the story early and got lost along the way a bit. However I will say they did an amazing job of designing simple control schemes that still make the characters feel unique. I thought Hulk was slightly underpowered (or it could have been my play style) but the gameplay was awesome! I was very pleasantly surprised!

Overall I’d say a 7 out of 10 for me. The monotony of the loot design lost my interest as I don’t care about costumes. But the dlc did leave me hanging. When is that “big invasion” gonna happen? Is that releasing sometime soon or did the Hawkeye DLC just kind of finish that storyline in an abrupt manner?

@ralphdibny I see that you enjoyed War for Wakanda as the best DLC. I thought that one had the best level design by far. But I enjoyed where Future Imperfect was going more. If they ever actually finish that story with an eventual “invasion” I will definitely play it. Other than that, like most I think I’m done. But I did enjoy a good chunk of the story (minus the middle where all the loot and side quest stuff is heavily pushed).

If it’s not too late to vote for September, it looks like Undertale and Immortals Fenyx Rising are leading with 3 each. I’m down for either! But I hear undertale is an amazing, shorter and focused exoerience. With my schedule I would vote for that. But I’m down for anything!

Just to chime in about Avengers, which I played late last year: I really enjoyed the opening and was wondering why everyone was so down on the game. However it quickly becomes repetitive. The story is okay but everything about the game falls short if you compare it to the Guardians of the Galaxy game.

I'll vote for Immortals Fenyx Rising. Need something ambitious to play now on my Switch!

I haven't been active this month, I've been very busy and I'm still trying to finish Dead Space... I might give Avengers a go but not this month.
I vote for Undertale and Yoku's Island Express. I really want to play Immortals Fenyx Rising but I need a shorter game next month!

It looks like Undertale will be the game for september with a result of 5-4 over Immortals (Mr Wenger's gunners type of result if I may say).

I will put that on the download list and will focus on it after I am done with MGS3 (as I am suspecting Sunset overdrive will take a while longer into the month).

Undertale will be a bit strange just because altough I never played I know almost everything about it as I never avoided spoilers to it. Let's see how it goes (and how many runs I will end up doing)

l vote for Immortals Fenyx Rising.

I think that tomorrow is the last day for What Remains of Edith Finch but I played two of the short chapters and I don't feel like playing any more.

@xMightyMatt14x good to read your thoughts on avengers! (Sorry late reply)

I defo agree with most of your points there! I think both Hawkeye's are good to play as and even though I really disliked Kate to begin with, she plays much better once her skill tree is upgraded.

Totally agree about the Kamala/Banner dynamic. It was the best thing about the game especially as both were played well by their actors. I loved how it wasn't one sided as well. Banner had almost as much growing up to do as Kamala.

I agree about the controls as well. It's nice to have a base shared control scheme that does similar stuff for all the heroes even if the results are different. I did roll my eyes a bit in the opening mission when I found everyone had a ranged attack but it definitely makes sense in terms of accessibility

Hi all and welcome to Game Club's selection for September: Immortals Fenyx Rising

Another close call this month with some last minute votes giving Immortals a slight lead over Undertale!

I actually know very very little about Immortals. I remember it came out around the time of the new consoles. I've heard people say it's a bit like Breath of the Wild, doesn't look much like it in screenshots but I've not seen any videos.

I already played Immortal Fenyx rising around the time it came out. Absolutely loved the game and think it's one of the most underrated games from 2020. IT has great humor (although it isn't for everyone). The gameplay is basically exploring, puzzles, platforming elements (especially in the dungeons) and combat. The world isn't super large, some people get turned off by large maps somehow, and the world is diverse enough to not feel samey. Have fun for everyone who is going to play it.

@ralphdibny my vote for October will be: Immortality (not on the list yet) since it gets such stellar reviews

@ralphdibny my votes are:
