Just finished Final Fantasy XV this weekend. I'll keep my thoughts general on it, so as not to reveal any spoilers.
Overall I really enjoyed the game; it's not the best Final Fantasy on Xbox in my opinion (or other platforms for that matter!) but graphically it looks great, especially the visuals during the boss fights; and I really loved the soundtrack. Performance-wise, Series X is a great way to play it, and didn't see any framerate drops below 60FPS during my 27-hour playthrough.
I can see the complaints with the gameplay, i.e. it's easy to potion spam your way through battles; and some of the side quests can be a bit tedious... but overall, really enjoyed it and was a solid game for me!

Recently I finished up observation before it left gamepass. It was an old school sci-fi movie...but a game. Wasn't the greatest but I did enjoy it at the same time. I just finished Halo CE with my brother and man was that a great campaign. We will be carrying on into 2 next week and plan is to be done with the series in time for Infinite.

Just finished the free Space Jam game from GPU and it took me about 40-50 minutes. Pretty fun game and I managed to get 450 G in that time, which is pretty good actually. I don't feel compelled to get the rest though since the game can get fairly challenging. But overall it's definitely worth giving it a go for one playthrough.

Just finished The Walking Dead: A New Frontier. This was easily the best Telltale Walking Dead game I've played. While there were more memorable moments in the first two seasons, you just felt more of a badass in the third season. More action, more grand set-pieces and more events on a greater scale. Further, Javier was such a cool protagonist and I'm impressed the developer managed to switch out Clementine like that while still making everything feel natural. She was still around for the most of the time but I'm still glad that we got to play as a different character with a different backstory and all around different characters surrounding him. It made this season feel like a breath of fresh air instead of another chapter of Clementine's life. Not to mention that I actually cared about most of the characters this time around. Although I do have to say that I miss having the choice of saving someone show up more often. It didn't show up as much in this season compared to the second one and so the choices in this game felt overall less impactful.

All in all though, this was a phenomenal game and I can't wait to play the final season and see how Clementine's story ends. It's too bad the last season isn't on Game Pass, so I guess I'll be playing the Michonne game next.

Just finished Sea of Solitude. I thought it was a pretty interesting and fun game. Very cool and unique art design, and the story was decent as well. The main issue I had was that I just didn't care about the characters and I honestly feel like it would've been better if the game didn't have voice-overs. Because this game reminds me a lot of titles such as Ico and The Last Guardian and both of those games were great because the story wasn't impacted by voice-overs, not to mention poor voice acting. I feel like a lot of things can easily be expressed through body language and that's where games like Ico succeeded. Further, the gameplay could get a bit stale as well since there wasn't much variety. But other than that, I enjoyed my time with Sea of Solitude. It certainly was an interesting experience.

Just finished Man of Medan. I started it half a year ago and played through half of it before stopping because it was so boring. However, I'll admit now, the game does become more interesting and intense during the last couple of hours. But it shouldn't take 2-3 hours for a horror game to get scary, especially when that's around the halfway mark.

Anyway, I thought the scares were really good but I'm disappointed that there weren't any actual monsters, they were just hallucinations due to some gas. Further, I managed to get three out of the five friends to survive, but I genuinely feel like the two deaths were unfair. The first one died because I was searching a giant room and apparently took too long because it triggered a cut-scene and there was no going back after that. There was nothing indicating that I had to rush this section, which is why I found this death unfair. The second one was less unfair and more confusing. It had to do with picking the right dialogue option and it just didn't make sense to me why the ones I picked led to the death of that person.

Finally, I've come to the realisation that I don't really like these choice-based horror games, mostly because you miss out on content because you killed off certain characters. I really want to see everything significant in a game and having to miss out on content because of certain choices is not something I like.

So overall, I thought the game was okay. Definitely one of the weakest horror games I've played simply because it took too long to get to the scary part and that part was way too short. Not to mention the characters were very uninteresting and you didn't care whether they lived or died. But at least the scary part made up for the rest of the game.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Finished it in 27 hours with every achievement unlocked. I loved the game! Great gameplay, fun exploration, perfect lenght, and the Souls-like mechanics was a fun surprise for me. Now I feel like replaying the original Dark Souls, I haven’t played it since it came out in 2011.

Can't believe that I'm actually typing this out, but I just finished Fallout 3! This game has remained unfinished for me ever since 2016. Back then I played through the base game and clocked in at about 50 hours of playtime. However, I decided to not do the final mission of the game because so many people kept mentioning that one should do the DLCs before ending the game since it does not continue right after. That's why I took a long break from the game because I didn't feel like doing the DLCs at the time. But apparently, there's one DLC that actually lets you continue the game and I didn't know about that back then. Yesterday I decided to finally pick the game up and go through the DLCs in terms of release order. I finished the first two and in order to activate the third one, I had to finish the game, which is how I learned that you can keep playing right after the ending.

So yeah, after five years I've finally finished this game! I'm still planning on doing the remaining three DLCs before finally moving on from it. It's still crazy to me that I'm actually done with the main story though. This game is truly phenomenal and so impactful for its time. Definitely one of the most influential Western RPGs of all time and I'm so glad that I've played through it now, even though I played most of it five years ago lol. Better late than never!

Fable 2:

So i am a member of TrueAchievements and they're currently running an event that encourages people to earn points by going back and playing some older games that they haven't played for a long time. One of the games i opted to play was Fable 2 and i ended up getting right back into it.

I started a brand new character and had around 20 of the achievements unlocked (out of 50). Now i've 1000G the game and had a lot of fun doing so. Got me even more hyped for the new Fable reboot too

Blasphemous.

Another Souls-like, but this time in the form of a Metroidvania. Very unique design, and very atmospheric, and a good challange. I can really recommend this game if you are a fan of the genre.
It had a few annoying glitches though. For example, it happened three times when I was hit by a projectile while in the middle of a jump that the character couldn’t move when I landed on the ground, which resulted in me having to restart the game.

So not really a game, but I just finished the last piece of DLC for Fallout 3 and have thus completed all five DLC packs. It took me about 3 hours to finish each one (total of 15 hours) and overall, I think the DLC for this game is quite good. Operation Anchorage was a nice change of pace as it made the game feel like a standard first-person shooter. The Pitt was probably the one I enjoyed the least because it didn't really feel that different from the main game. Not to mention the objectives were lame, like the one where you have to collect steel ingots. Broken Steel was easily my favourite one because you get to fight alongside Liberty Prime again in the first mission, then you get an awesome Tesla weapon and finally you get to call in an orbital strike to finish off the enemies in the last mission, which was amazing. Point Lookout was pretty good overall with a unique environment but it didn't feel that memorable in all honesty. And finally, Mothership Zeta was really cool but it just felt like a generic corridor shooter. At this point I had also reached max level and the lack of progression made the game feel boring.

Overall it took me 70 hours in total to finish Fallout 3 plus its five DLC packs and I think that's a pretty good length for a Bethesda game. Still can't believe that I'm finally done with this game now after five years. Definitely looking forward to starting up another Bethesda game (probably Oblivion just to switch things up) but that will have to wait until a later point.

Just finished The Walking Dead: Michonne. It was definitely a different experience compared to the mainline Walking Dead games with Clementine but overall I thought it was a great game. I've actually watched a good amount of the AMC TV show so I know Michonne from there, which made me care more about her in this game despite it being a one-off. It gave us a good glimpse of her backstory before the zombie apocalypse as well as what she were up to during the time away from the main group and I really liked that. I also liked the psychological aspect of the game, it made it feel like a horror title at times with some minor jump scares here and there. And once again, it's great to see so much action in these newer Telltale games compared to the older ones. That's one of the reasons why I really liked The New Frontier too.

All in all, great game and an easy as well as quick 1000 G.
