Now I'm playing Dragon Age II. And Tell Me Why. I like Dragon Age so far, even if it is very different from Origins.

Started playing Spiritfarer again recently and I think this will be the last time I'm playing this game. It's just not fun anymore, like the entire game is basically about fetch quests and most of the time it's fun but 10 hours into the game and the quests have started becoming tedious as hell. There's this one guy who wants food and he tells me he wants pork chops. So I look all over the map for places that sell pork, finally found some and I turn them into pork chops for him to eat. I thought all of that stuff was over now but then he started asking me for some fried chicken. So once again I look all over the place for chicken, found some, put them in the oven in order to make the dish he wants and they turn out as grilled chicken, which he doesn't want. So I looked up online how to make fried chicken, and apparently you need to combine chicken with e.g. sunflower oil in the oven. I have sunflower seeds but every time I grow sunflowers and try to remove them they just turn into seeds again. At this point the game has completely stopped being fun for me, like why does everything need to be so complicated? I got the chicken for him, just eat the darn chicken! lol

But yeah I'm apparently progressing really slowly in this game and I don't think I'm going to enjoy it anymore. The game is just too open world and it can be quite difficult finding out how to progress, especially if you miss some things early on in the game. Then it becomes a chore backtracking because you're running everywhere and you can't find anything to help you progress, even though it says on the map that something should be there.

It's a great game, but I sadly don't have the patience for it anymore. It used to be a chill game to play at first, but now it's kinda frustrating and repetitive.

Back to Borderlands 3 for me at the moment but I hop around games a lot.

The remaster of Doom 64 lol I know it's not really a One game but it runs super fast on One S, it's a joy to play it! Only 5 euro, what a bargain

I just finished Tell Me Why recently and really enjoyed that one! I am thinking about possibly playing Night In The Woods next. At the very least I have it installed and ready to go. The REAL next game I want to play is Doom Eternal on Xbox Game Pass, but I won't be able to play that until it is available on October 1st!

Just started playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. I tend to play physical 360 games that I own on my 360, but I decided to give it a try on Xbox One just to have all my games on the same system while also experience all the additional benefits of playing on One (e.g. better graphics). And the game feels and looks great to play on Xbox One!

I've already played through Modern Warfare 1 and 2 on 360 earlier in the year on Veteran difficulty and so I decided to go through MW3 on Veteran as well. It still feels a bit tough but maybe that's because it's been quite some time since I played these games. I'm fairly certain though that MW3 Veteran is much easier than MW1 Veteran.

Anyway, looking forward to experiencing the finale of this trilogy and to playing another wonderful CoD campaign.

Started Forza Horizon 3 last night and from what I have played of it, I am enjoying it. I can see why this game is so popular.

Played a bit more of Modern Warfare 3 today and the game feels much more different than the previous two games. For starters, the missions aren't only running through levels and shooting everything in sight. This was annoying in previous games because you have to constantly move forward, otherwise enemies would just keep respawning. It's the same thing in MW3, however there is more variety now and the shooting levels aren't as long as before. For example, there's a mission where you're underwater and then on a boat, and then later on you control a miniature tank. All these things definitely help break up the pace, especially when playing on Veteran.

I just finished a mission where you play as the Russians and the ending of that mission genuinely surprised me: when you're supposed to defend the president and as you arrive to the evac chopper and open the door, instead of the usual "Objective complete" that you constantly see throughout missions, it now said "Objective failed". At first I seriously thought that I had done something wrong, but then you see that Makarov, the villain from MW2, was in the chopper and he shoots you and kidnaps the president. That genuinely surprised me and just goes to show what thrilling campaigns the CoD games are able to deliver. Not to mention the rest of the mission where you're on an airplane, then it gets hijacked and you're going down as everyone is flying around in the plane. Then it crashes and you have to fend off enemy reinforcements. This was such a cool mission!

I'm definitely liking this game more than MW1 and MW2 so far.

Started up Ori and the Blind Forest: DE for the first time today since I'm once again in the mood for a Metroidvania game and so far this game has been really good. I didn't know what to expect since I haven't seen much footage of it, so I was surprised when I saw how story-heavy the game is. Also, I'm really digging the art style and the music is absolutely wonderful. Most importantly, the Metroidvania gameplay is so engrossing and I love how much there is to collect and upgrade. Can't believe I've waited this long to finally play this amazing game.

@LtSarge how does ori compare to bloodstained in terms of initial difficulty and metroidvania-ish-ness? I was kind of turned off of it by it's genre but I saw some gameplay footage of the second game and thought it looked really cool!

ralphdibny

@ralphdibny Well if I recall correctly, the initial difficulty of Bloodstained was rather high, so in comparison the initial difficulty in Ori is definitely lower. One reason why is because you can set a save point anywhere as long as it's on a flat and stable surface. You can initially only do this one time before having to wait for the meter to recharge, but you'll be able to upgrade your character so you won't have to wait. In other words, if you die you won't have to travel back to specific save rooms. Another reason is that your main attack always homes in on the closest target, meaning that it's not really hard to defeat enemies. You just have to focus on avoiding their attacks. Finally, the map in this game is very detailed and has distinguishable areas so you'll have no problem finding your way. Compare this to the map in Bloodstained which is basically the same kind of map that consists of squares that you see in Super Metroid and those classic games.

So I finished the first area and so far the whole "multiple-path" structure of a Metroidvania game is rather lite and not complicated at all. It's fairly straightforward where you need to go basically and even if you do go the wrong way there will be upgrades or other items to find there.

In other words, Ori feels like a great beginner-friendly Metroidvania game.

@LtSarge ahh fair enough, sounds good! I might give it a go at some point then. I did get the Xbox originally so I could play and try out the exclusives and barring the recent switch port, this is one of them!

ralphdibny

LtSarge

@ralphdibny Oh yeah definitely, this is a must-play if you want to check out Xbox exclusives. It's a lovely game!

I've played a bit more of it today and my opinion of it has slightly changed since earlier. So while the game is rather chill to play, it will introduce obstacles about an hour in or so where you will die in just one hit. I kept dying here a lot and the issue I was having is that I kept forgetting to place save points. So basically, keep putting down save points fairly frequently and you should be fine. I guess that's how the developers have balanced out the difficulty lol. But yeah, I'm still having a great time with the game so far. The art style is actually starting to remind me of the Rayman games (Origins/Legends). It's very eye-popping and colourful!

LtSarge

ralphdibny

@LtSarge ah fair enough, I'll keep that in mind for sure if I get around to it!

It does look like a really pretty game from the videos I watched. I don't mind steep curves so much, I think Bloodstained just threw me right into the thick of it and it was hard to get a handle on it so early in the game.

I'd be interested to hear what you think once you've finished the game! How long it takes you and how it compares to other metroidvanias on the whole etc

@LtSarge @ralphdibny Ori can be controller smashingly frustrating at points, especially the second game, but it is a great couple of games.

@crippyd nice, is that with regards to combat or platforming? I quite like frustrating platforming but not so much combat!

At the moment I'm playing Hellblade (it's taking me a long time to complete), Batman Telltale Series, and RE7. Looks like I'll be playing some Destroy All Humans and UFC 4 this weekend as well as they are a part of Free Play Days.
