I don't play many shooters, when I do it's typically stuff in the vein of CoD/Gears where I play cautiously from cover to cover. Doom Eternal is quite an adjustment.


I'm giving Shin Megami Tensei 3 HD a shot, but it's too annoyingly old school for my spoiled modern self.


"A secret weapon is saved until the last moment. That's why it's called secret"!, he shouts in earnest, hatred gleaming from his eyes. God I love Japanese dialogue, and no this isn't irony!


Luke is of course 100% correct, but when I see this kind of attention I can't help but be suspicious that such an outlier review was designed to attract such attention in the first place.


Dead Island 2 is both real and a commercial hit. Huh. This is a weird timeline.


Ace Combat 7 really needs an in-game Encyclopedia. I get this is the 7 entry in a long running series, but if you're going to keep tossing around names like they have some obvious meaning, at least tell me what they mean somewhere.


Combing through the depths of my Steam backlog, I gave a shot to Empire of Sin, Pine and The Forest, none of which kept my interest. Next up, Ace Combat 7. I have higher hopes for this one, never played an AC game but heard great things about it.


Finished Resident Evil 8. My opinion of it got worse the the closer to the end I got, but it's still solid. Maybe a 7.5. Not bad at all, but in the lower end of a hypothetical series rank. And the story, well... major spoilers in the comments.


Going through RE8, currently in the Dollhouse. My take so far is that it's a solid entry, but not as great or memorable as some other entries, which to be sure is nothing to be ashamed of. How did you guys feel about it? No spoilers!


I don't know if I'm becoming worse in my ols age or if RE8 is harder, but I'm having to look up guides embarrassingly often to progress and turn red rooms blue.


Name a gaming pet peeve. One of mine is cutscenes that shatter my suspension of disbelief for no reason whatsoever. Like in the opening section of RE8, which is what prompted this post. You open a curtain, there's a guy behind it with a shotgun...


Finished Darksiders Genesis. It's pretty good, better than it's been getting credit for considering 0 people in my Steam friend list have played it, and quite a few have previously played Darksiders. Give it a chance, guys!


Darksiders Genesis is good, but I'd enjoy it significantly more if it had less puzzles and more action.


Darksiders Genesis is surprisingly good, which was a pleasant surprise after the disappointment that was Darksiders 3.


I got a week left of Game Pass Trial, but I didn't see anything that both caught my eye and I was confident I'd be done with it in a week, guess I'm going back to my actual backlog, starting with Tokyo Xanadu EX.


My feel on Deathloop is that it's a potentially great game held back by the loop structure.


Gears Tactics seems really good, but I'm not in the mood for games that tax my brain too much at the moment. Atomic Hearts is the kind of game you really want it to be very good, but it isn't. Think I'm gonna try Deathloop next.


Time for the March gaming roundup! What did you play in March? What did you finish? What was your favorite game?


Finished Gears 5. It really is a massive step up from 4, excellent campaign. Not sure if it's better than 1, but it's certainly not worse. Late game spoilers in the comments.


It's really annoying that Gears 5 gives you a game over if an NPC dies.


I'm a boring person. No matter how many innovative fancy weapons Gears offers me, I always stick to 2 Lancer variations.


My experience with the MS store and games has been pretty bad so far, they're really not helping their case. Not being able to change a game's language is a major turn off, and I just had to spend a fair bit of time solving a Gears 5 audio issue that


Finished Gears 4. It's... not too bad? A significant step down from Gears 1 in every way. I didn't really like any of the new things they tried, the enemy robots, the horde sections, giant robot segment. Then it ends and I'm like "wut, that's it"?


Okay, I get the war against the Locust is "won", but I still have no clue why I'm killing other humans and robots in Gears 4.


Just finished Gears 1. Pretty good. It's been so long since I played a Straightforward third-person, testosterone infused cover shooter, it felt oddly fresh. The gunplay is great, and the game strikes a good balance between the super soldier fantasy and..
