Unreal Tournament 2004 CTF with 23 bots. On Ryzen 7 5800X + RTX 2060S :p Because fun and gibs.
I log into the new UT servers every once in a while, hard to find other players though. Original UT and UT 3 were the standouts for me. 2k3 and 2k4 never really caught on with me, game felt too much like Quake III, which is fun in its own way.
 
I decided to get the Mass Effect Legendary trilogy, which are remasters of the originals. I'm on the 1st game so far on Hardcore. I've beaten them all on Insanity before, save for Mass Effect 3's Citadel DLC fight between Shepard and his clone. It's also been quite a while since I've played any of them, so I went for Hardcore to keep it challenging, but also fun.

I've already maxed out my Paragon points, even though main mission wise I just acquired Liara and did one mission after to nuke Saren's research labs. Although ME1 Legendary certainly has better graphics than the original, mostly I've been reminded of how few main missions there are, how copy and pasted building interiors look, how frustratingly small battle areas are, and how idiotically frantic the AI are.

I'm definitely looking forward to ME2 and 3 Legendary though, because IMO that's where the ME trilogy was at it's best, including their DLCs. I don't recall if it was an option in the originals, but you have a choice between Classic mode with 60 levels, and Legendary mode with 30 levels. The name Legendary kind of implies it's new to this remaster, but not sure. I chose Legendary mode, and as I hoped, it feels a bit less grindy.

just got Elden Souls which is a fun but hard isometric-style Demon/Dark Souls like game. trying to get started but the first 1-2 hours of play and i've already died ~50 times.

finally finished Biomutant, was a great game but had even much more potential with some more personalized crafting and a few other additions.
 
Okay, so here are my thoughts on Days Gone. I'm sorry it took so long. I had typed one up a few days after my last post but it was saved as a draft and I lost it after a while.
Like I said, the cutscenes started feeling much better towards the end. It's almost like it was handled by 2 different people/teams.
This game really surprised me with its length. I meant that in a good way, actually. It never felt like it overstayed its welcome. Each major segment of the game felt different and unique. It had chapter like sections integrated very well without the game ever telling you that you reached the next chapter or something. Very well done.

I was starting to get sick of the O'Brian missions though where we had to tail helicopters and just generally stealth around and listen to conversations. That got super old by the 2nd time. Luckily it ended after 5-6 times I think.

In terms of story, I hated Sarah's character in the beginning. She was portrayed as a perfect person. I suppose this is because we're seeing things as Deacon imagines it. I just didn't like her in the beginning. I immediately liked Rikki though. She seemed to have good chemistry with him. Boozer was always great IMO. It was only at the very end where I felt things went out of character for him (he didn't jump off the truck, seemingly because he wanted to kill himself). But that was later revealed to have been nothing but just a misdirection (a terrible one IMO lol).

When we decide to go after Sarah; that's the section that I feel changed up the game a lot. I was totally expecting the game to end by then but it pulled something out which was even better. When Deacon meets Sarah, it was truly a wonderful moment. I liked the way they portrayed their relationship from that point on. It felt realistic.

I'm really disappointed by the fact that the hordes were so late in the game. It was easily the best part. I have no idea why they decided to keep it so late. Yes, I know, there are tons of hordes to take care of in the end, but that's exactly the problem for me. It's too close to the end. I'm the type of person who doesn't really care about late game content if I know that it's going to end soon. Maybe I made a mistake not playing more hordes? I dunno. They were fun, no doubt..

I probably took on 3-4 hordes in total.

Did you kill all the hordes? I'm finding it to be quite an adventure with the Massive Hordes mod. I have to farm resources to make throwable weapons more often. It's not as bad as I worried though, quite often I can lose them when they're chasing me, and just kill them in chunks, using my saddlebags to resupply ammo. And even though I am not sleeping this time to travel and do missions in the morning, it's not been that hard playing them at night. At times it's even easier, like when a big horde is roaming near one of the camps I'm about to take out, I can just toss a pipe bomb or grenade in their camp, and the horde swallows them up in seconds.
I only took on 3-4 hordes. They were introduced so late in the game that I just didn't want to do all of them since I knew I was close to the end. For me, they were definitely the toughest and most fun. Incredibly easy to lose all your stamina. I lost many times on the very first horde we try to take down. So much planning, but it all went to waste. I could never make the horde follow me and set off all the traps I had laid. They'd just swarm me from every direction.
just starting up Detroit: Become Human again after quite some time.
i enjoyed the short amount of time put into it my first run.
tried Beyond: Two Souls and didn't enjoy the characters or the gameplay.
you can definitely tell they are both Quantic Dream games though.
i started up the game and out of the first 30mins-1hr i got about 2mins of gameplay through a bunch of very annoying cutscenes.
seemed more like a bad movie with a few button presses here and there.
even started to remind me of some of the bad quick time event based games from years ago.
seeing your comments about it though i may just look for someone to give me a save state for later on and see how much it may actually improve as the game continues.
I've played Heavy Rain, Beyond Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human. For some reason, even though Beyond Two Souls is the worst rated of the 3, I seemed to enjoy that one more than the other 2. There were just a few chapters in the game which were really amazing that I still remember.

Just recently, a friend suggested that I play the game Ghost Recon Breakpoint. I had never played it before and didn't even know about the existence of such a shooter. But after a few hours with my friend, I realized that I like the game. I came home, opened the internet and started looking for the game to buy it. It's good that here I could find the game for $ 60, as I didn't have more money. Now, I'm playing as an elite SWAT team and save the world

Also check out Ghost Recon Wildlands, game before BP. Imo is better than BP.

Soooo true! Ubi really screwed the pooch turning GR into a fantasy tiered loot game.

Anyway, thought I'd drop in since I haven't posted here a while and mention what's new in my gaming arsenal lately. I just picked up Alan Wake Remastered, and have been enjoying it in between the walkthroughs I do of other games.
