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..


Not really feeling Halo Infinite. I'm only interested in the campaign, the open world stuff gets in the way, the gunplay is average at best and I have no clue what's going on nor any investment in the narrative, or what passes for one.


Started Halo Infinite, kinda regretting I didn't wait until I had access to it to play the series. I played it a year or 2 ago, now I don't remember most of the names and have no idea why things start like they do in Infinite.


I got a reminder that the laptop I got last year comes with a month of Game Pass, so I can finally finished my Halo series playthrough with Infinite. Amazingly, I can't seem to change its language, either in-game or through the MS store. That sucks.


Rough start of the year. Last week: amygdalitis. This week: pneumonia. Never had it, kinda scary. On the bright side, I have access to treatment and get to play a butload of videogames, so it could certainly be worse.


Just finished the Mafia remake, my first time playing the game. It ends rather abruptly, like the developers ran out of time/money and released it as it was.


In 2021 I made a list of monthly games played to talk about with you fine folks. Last year I didn't, and I missed it, so I´m doing it again! I forgot to bring it up so far (oops), but I just finished Ys 9, as good a time to start as any! So, let´s start


I guess I'm at the part where the evil mastermind revealed he created a being superior to the gods themselves, and said being is about to be killed by 3 people with pointy sticks. World, get ready to be saved!


Come on people who make RPGs, monsters born out of humanity's evil was a nice idea the first 50 times or so, but maybe it's time to let it go and come up with something else?


I think Ys 9 would be a better game without the lvl 10 prison sections. Oh, and I'm struggling with some nasty bacteria, apparently. Well wishes welcome.


Anyone else rarely if ever gives a chance to RPG party members that only show up after your party is already full?


It seems the controversy turned Atomic Hearts into a best seller. Now it's being widely reported Ukraine will demand the game be banned, giving it even more publicity and raising the specter of "buy it while you still can". The devs must be thrilled.


Well, minutes into the game Ys 9 makes it clear this is going to be a dark game about dark things in a dark world with dark characters, a sharp departure in tone from the previous game. Let's see how it works out.
