Actually a month ago, but I've played Mortal Shell. I was actually pleasantly surprised with it. The concept of some weird humanoid creature possessing the bodies of long-deceased warriors is uniquely creepy - I'm not really sure how to explain it, but just the fact that these warriors' minds/souls are not at all present makes it eerie. They're, fittingly, just shells.

Love the game's visuals and overall atmosphere. The zone with the giant obsidian pillars is by far one of the most visually impressive places I've ever seen in a game. The fogginess in the starting zone and the hub one makes things eerie and mysterious, not to mention very calming. I also love the soundtrack by Atrium Carceri. Dark ambient is one of my favorite music genres, and this is definitely a good game to listen to some dark ambient to, or maybe some doom metal.

Did notice a lot of typos in the game's texts, but that's about it as far as gripes go. For a game made by only 15 people, it's really well-made. I do rage over getting lost in the hub area a lot, but at least I've gotten better at recognizing the landmarks. Not so much for the area with the obsidian pillars, because it's huge and everything looks the same. The snow area and the fire one I can do by heart, though.

Also, lutes. I love how they make sound when you step on them and kick them around. And you can even play them. Because unliving warriors playing the lute is fun. Lute is life, indeed.

At the moment my pick is World of Warcraft :) it is great that I can buy dungeon runs of the highest difficulty levels because unfortunately I not always get as much free time as I want :(

Beat Mafia Definitive Edition. Simply amazing game I kind of wish I'd gotten into this series sooner but better late than never I guess.

Now I'm playing Resident Evil Revelations on Xbox One.

Well I was hoping to start Assassin's Creed Valhalla on the Xbox Series X last week but I unfortunately did not get a Series X as I had hoped. So now I'm currently playing Pokemon Sword finally. I'm really loving the game and I'm really glad I picked it up instead of passing on it like I had planned on doing.

After I beat that I'll move on to Dragon Quest XI on the Xbox One and flip between that and the Pokemon DLCs. Unless I get a series X then I'll move to Valhalla as planned.

The last game I beat was Pikmin 3 Deluxe on the Switch. I really enjoyed this game and will probably go back and do the side stories. Probably before Pikmin 4 comes out

I'm currently playing Spider-Man Miles Morales on PS5. Excellent game so far.

Since my last post I ended up beating Pokemon Sword a few weeks later and got my Xbox Series X shortly after that. I've since beaten AC Valhalla which was last week, Call of Duty Cold War shortly after the new year and even though the game has no end I "beat" Animal Crossing New Horizons. I consider the game beat when I pay off my house, catch and donate all the bugs, fish, sea creatures and donate every fossil. I'd say complete the museum in general but with Redd showing up sporadically it takes too long to do that. I'm still playing the game for the time being but will most likely slow down on it.

After I beat Miles Morales I'm going to jump into Marvel's Avengers on the Xbox Series X and try to stretch that out until May when RE8 comes out.

Currently playing the PS4 re-release of Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. It's a bit of a mess.

Finished Astrobot's Playroom yesterday. Its essentially a glorified demo for the PS5 that introduces you to the features of the Dual Sense controller as well as the PS5. Don't let this fool you though the game is a lot of fun and I highly recommend it.

Today I finished Spider-Man Miles Morales on PS5 I didn't platinum the game yet because a lot of the trophies are locked behind New Game + but I did 100% my save file. The game is excellent even though its essentially a DLC companion for the PS4 Spider-Man game. I'm really looking forward to the sequel when ever we may get that. Hopefully next year or 2023. I'll probably do new Game Plus right before the sequel comes out.

Next I'm moving on to Marvel's Avengers on the Xbox Series X though I should probably wait for that as the game is going to be getting Dolby Vision support sometime down the line. Its already available to Xbox Insiders.

Finally someone here who plays WoW! Which version do you play? Modern retail? I do as well but I also tried official classic as well as Wrath and BC servers in the past. Each expansion has its own charm but I am going to vote for Wrath as my favorite. It has the perfect blend of simplification and complexity. I love Classic and BC but it just requires so much time and time is something I just don't have much of. Wrath was casual enough that with a half decent guild you can get the gear you need but still had the talent trees for customizability. Not to mention the Scourge and Lich King are awesome as well as Northrend being my overall favorite location. However I must say Shadowlands is pretty neat as well with the level design.

Speaking of which, I downloaded Doom 2016 last night and I'm having a blast. Game is super fun and fast paced.

I "beat" Marvel's Avengers on the Series X and I think it was just average. Wasn't great but wasn't terrible either. I was going to make that last until May when RE8 comes out but I think I'm just going to play Monster Hunter Rise instead. I'll go back to the DLC missions later on.

Restarted Darksiders again. Bought the Warmastered edition for super cheap on the Playstation store several months back. Was sick all weekend so I figured it might as well delve into it again.

Beat DOOM: Eternal. The Icon of Sin was pretty easy as a boss, even on Ultra violence. The minions he spawned gave me more trouble that he did. In fact, most of the bosses except the Gladiator were pretty easy. The Doom Hunter is so weak I laugh whenever he shows up later on in the game as an enemy. I think the Cyberdemon from DOOM 2016 was still the hardest boss in the new games, though I've played both of them enough now to where I think I can probably take him without dying as much, if at all.

I beat the Gears 5 expansion Hivebusters earlier this week.

Probably not going to game until Friday when RE8 comes out. I don't want to get into something only to give up on it. After RE8 I'll probably go to Days Gone on the PS5.
