I have signed up to the Xbox Games Pass free trial and given Mad Max a try. I enjoyed it for a bit since the vehicle combat is a lot of fun as is upgrading the car, much of the game though is extremely repetitive and you have to do the same 4 or 5 tasks in each region to find scrap and lower your threat level so you can upgrade the car with little to no story associated with the tasks. The graphics are good for such a large open world but not great, the story so far seems like a rehash of The Road Warrior and has Max helping settlements against raiders after having lost the V8 Interceptor.... again 😐

There is a good idea for a game in there but it is just so very very boring, I tried to keep going but I have to take a break from it so I am giving Ryse a go now.

I'm glad to see you try it out. And I think that's the point. Try out the games before you spend a lot of money for something you don't like. Even though you are spending some, you get to decide what games you like first. 😉

"Play is the highest form of research, a chance to discover who we are, or maybe who we want to become." - Albert Einstein
Those who play games know why they do. To discover worlds, to challenge our fingers, and our minds. To connect with friends, or maybe just to escape.
Games are about possibilities, the paths we take as well as the ones we don't.

Beside Fallout 4, where I spend most of my time, I have been playing the Legend of Zelda, Breath of the Wild. It takes me back to when my son was young and I bought him a Nintendo 64, I used it more than he did, so I bought my own and the Zelda games were the "bomb". The biggest issue I have with the Switch is the button use, the A button on the Switch pro controller is where the "B" button is on the XOne, so I am continually hitting the bottom button on the Switch which is the "Back" button, pretty frustrating. The controller that comes with the system is awkward and uncomfortable at best, but luckily they have the pro controller that is just between XOne and PS4 as to size, and not too bad a controller.

I have tried lately to play Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 and Sniper Elite 4, but they just aren't grabbing my attention, which seems to be the norm for me since FO4 came out, so of course I am waiting on the next Fallout game with baited breath.

Stuck in "Prey" for an hour or so, but what a weird game, I guess I didn't give it much of a chance, but I found it irritating to be honest. Also have tried to re-vist Shadows of Mordor, and that one hasn't grabbed me either.

So, I am still waiting for that "Borderlands, Red Dead Fallout 4 experience to show up, guess I shouldn't hold my breath huh?

The auspice of this game is great, just way way too repetitive and boring scenery after a time.

Now that I've finished Persona 5 for the first time it was a glorious. It made me both laugh and cry, good times and stuff!
Continuing to finish my other games, I'm not playing Fate/Extella. From the hit VN and Anime series Fate/Stay Night

I'm actually surprised that for a Dynasty Warriors kinda game I actually get defeated here from time to time. What I love here is the characters and move sets
So many to choose from. Most characters came from the Anime and Visual Novel. but others are original which is good too.
As for the lore of the characters, They are from History's great figure reincarnated as both heroic and anti-hero spirits so yeah Japan is just being Japan.
I guess this game is not meant for everyone fans sure..... new comers not so much 😆
I'm just having frustration about costume DLC prices and versions. since I'm in asia my PS Store tells me to go buy Japanese or Chinese version. I don't speak those. I'm still English speaker. I only know two tongues, Filipino and English. haha

I've been playing a combination of Payday 2 and Battlefield 1 lately. BF1's second DLC, In The Name of the Tsar, launches next month so I'm looking forward to that.

I also bought the Prototype Biohazard bundle a couple of months back so it's been fun revisiting Prototype (I played it years ago).

I've downloaded Teslagrad. It looks interesting. I'm downloading Ratchet and Clank into the Nexus. It's been a while since I've played a Ratchet game,and I found it for cheap,and it has an easy platinum.

I've played a few hours of Teslagrad today.It has some clever ideas,a nice artstyle,but it's lack of production values definitely affect the game's quality,the controls are oversensitive and stiff.This has compelled me to do a blog about how I feel about Indie games,because some of the most memorable gaming experiences I've had have been from Indie games,but many Indie games are so broken or unplayable,that they have controls worse than an 8-bit game,and have less playability than an Atari 2600 game.
