Started playing Quake since I quite enjoy the old school DOOM games and I wanted to see how this game fares compared to them. I'm actually enjoying it very much, probably more than the older DOOM titles. The fact that you can now aim vertically and are able to jump are such major improvements that you don't even think about their absence in DOOM because those games weren't designed around those aspects. I'm also really liking the medieval theme instead of the hell theme in DOOM. It actually reminds me of Elder Scrolls, like if DOOM and Elder Scrolls had a baby this would be it. So yeah, I'm very much enjoying my time with this game and I can't wait to play more.

On a side note, I'm actually getting quite tired of playing the older DOOM games. I've finished DOOM 1 and 2 but I'm struggling to get through DOOM 64. Apparently it's one of the best games in the series but I just find the levels to be incredibly repetitive. It's always about finding different cards in order to progress, instead of having for example a normal level where you just get to the end, a level about finding cards, a level with a boss fight and then it's over and so on. So I don't know, but the fact that I'm enjoying Quake more just goes to show how much different that series is despite it pretty much being a "continuation" of the DOOM franchise.

@LtSarge Doom 64 is more puzzle based I think. I found it quite scary as well, just really moody and the low key soundtrack is quite haunting!

Looking forward to playing Quake when I get some time, it's a shame they didn't port Quake 2 to console as well! Sounds like the first Quake has tons of levels too with all the expansions so I'll have to make a lot of time for it.

@ralphdibny I think that's why I don't like DOOM 64 as much as the first two games. Too much wandering around trying to figure out how to unlock the next door instead of keeping a good pace going throughout the levels.

Yeah, Quake 1 seems to have a lot of extra content so I think that'll keep you busy until the other Quake games are ported to Xbox. I can't imagine why they wouldn't be ported if the first one is available there.

@LtSarge I do wonder if they will actually bother porting Quake 2. It seems to be a bit hit and miss in terms of what they port to console. I think if there's a lot of demand for it then they will do it like in the case of Microsoft Flight Simulator but stuff like half the Wolfenstein games, Age of Empires and some other things remain PC exclusive. I would have thought that all the Quake games would have come at the same time if the rest were going to come at all. Not sure, that's just the feeling I have about it.

Been checking out a lot of games on Game Pass lately. First, I've gone back to wrapping up Psychonauts 2 as I'm only a couple of hours away from the end. Second, I've been playing Superliminal, which is an absolutely brilliant puzzle game and it's up there with Portal as one of the most creative and unique puzzle games I've played. Finally, I gave Monster Sanctuary a go as I have it on my watchlist on the Switch and it's on sale now so I thought I'd try it out on Game Pass before buying it. It's basically a mix between a 2D Metroidvania and Pokémon turn-based battles and it's awesome. Apparently it's 30 hours long, so I'm definitely going to buy it now on the Switch and take my time with it there and leave the shorter games for Game Pass.

Started playing Fable Anniversary on 360 today. It's my first time playing through this series as it's one of the few Xbox exclusives I just haven't played through at all. I played it for a couple of hours and so far I'm absolutely loving this game. I've actually been craving a western RPG to play lately, such as Skyrim or AC: Origins but those games are too long to get through seeing as how I have other games I want to play soon as well. So I decided to go for Fable and it pretty much feels like a lite version of Skyrim. The gameplay is very simple and the game is easy to pick up and play (and also not that long) so I'm definitely going to play through it during the coming weeks. I'm really glad that I'm finally checking this series out after all this time!

@LtSarge I also played the trilogy for the first time earlier this year and anniversary is a masterpiece. By far my favourite from the series (uncommon opinion but I actually disliked the second and prefer the other 2)

I have been playing Sam Andreas as it is the only one from the trilogy I only had a couple of hours with before. It is very jancky but I am still having fun with it (apart from zero's flying chopper... That can burn in hell!!!)

@Balta666 Ah nice, I'm looking forward to seeing what I think of the rest of the trilogy. It does seem like it's an underrated franchise now that we haven't seen a new mainline Fable game in over a decade.

@LtSarge Somebody much have forgotten that they played but never finished both 2 and 3 back in the day... I was looking through your achievements yesterday (I like to do that with achievements/trophies to compare sometimes) just to see what older games you've played and I remember seeing both of them.

I remember highly enjoying both 1 and 2 back when they came out, but never played 3. I'm guessing it came out after I shifted from the 360 to the PS3.

@KilloWertz I never played through Fable 2 and 3 but yeah I did play them for maybe a couple of hours like a decade ago lol. I don't remember anything about those games though given the short amount of time I played them so the series might as well be new for me! Looking forward to giving those games a proper go this time around.

@LtSarge It's fine. I was just being technical.

I hope you enjoy all of them. You should obviously. I remember the first two being pretty enjoyable. Maybe I'll finally play the 3rd one someday. It's not going anywhere.

@KilloWertz You could always play it when the next Fable game is about to come out in order to get hyped for it. I think that's what I'm going to do as I'll probably not get to Fable 3 for quite some time. I tend to take my time with franchises, so I can definitely see it taking 1-2 years before I get to the third game of a series.

Quake remaster is great, Quake II RTX is a blast on PC but seeing a Quake Night Dive remaster would be a great choice for the masses. Quake II RTX is a Vulkan RT renderer on top of id Tech where Night Dive has their own engine, the KEX engine, that Quake remaster uses.

@LtSarge That makes a lot of sense. I will probably follow your suggestion there and finally play it before Fable comes out (in 2023 or 2024).
