Virtuaverse is a proper old school point and click. You have to interact with everything, talk to everybody, remember everything you see, remember everything in your inventory, backtrack, go back and fort, talk to people again, no hand holding, no waypoints, no clues. aaaahh!!!

I'm loving it.

But I hate having to use a walkthrough just because recent games tell you what to do and where to go. Yeah, I'm gonna blame it on that...

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

The original Hyrule Warriors got me through full time grad school, a toddler and a nursing infant, and working full time. I wish the stressful events in my life right now were so positive, but either way, nearly (but not quite) mindless button mashing is exactly what I need right now. The hours just drift on by... I really love the Zelda hack and slashes.

What's Hyrule Warriors like? Never played the first, and haven't read much about the second.

Like Dynasty Warriors and Legends of Zelda had a sweet sweet baby. It is less an RPG and more a hack and slash game. They are really fun, as long as you can avoid thinking of them as a more traditional Zelda game. My favourite DW series is the three DW Gundam games :)
I'm sorry Dave...

i'm working through the farcry 5 dlc ... they're kind of a mixed bag, liked the zombie one, love the vietnam one, the mars one was kind of me (i hate bullet-sponge bosses)

i also bought farcry 4, which has great reviews, but haven't started it

from my previous post:

when you start the game, you hear a voice say "It's gonna be yuge!"

I didn't think much of it, I thought it was just the developers trying to be funny

and then I ran into this:

For those familiar with Marathon, it would be the equivalent of a juggernaut, and he shoots rockets and fusion bolts.

But I took it down by emptying all my SPNKR rockets into it. Felt good ;)

also, playing modern warfare 2 these days is kinda... eerie

I didn't know what it was about

it's an old game but *spoiler alert*

Spoiler
a terrorist attack on russia made to look like americans did it, russia attacks the US, american general steal russian nuke and launches it at the US to blame russians... that's as far as I've gone[/spoilers]

not that anything like that is actually happening, but still... :paranoid:

yes

But the game does warn you before starting that part and offers the option of skipping it.
