What are you playing? (Modern Gaming Edition)


I’m also still playing Zelda. Since the early fall! Just doing lots of stuff and putting off the fourth and final beast since I don’t want it to end. Still haven’t even attempted to take on a Lynel!


Playing Monster Boy. Great game.


I wish I could get into Monster Boy, but for some reason I always end up switching it off after 5-10 minutes. Just made it past the icy caverns. I think I’m burned out on this style of game which is a shame as it’s by and large pretty good.


Downloaded “The Gardens Between” as it was added to Xbox Game Pass, really enjoyed it, good level design & a great soundtrack although it was quite short (completed 100% in about 4-5 hours) Worth a look if you like puzzle/problem solving games


I’ve been getting my true 4K goodness as of late. I’m done with Red Dead Redempion 2 now and went back to NieR Automata to tidy up the remaining bits I missed. Now up to level 80 on that game. Also, just started Just Cause 4. The Xbox One X is getting quite a workout these days.


Picked up The Witcher 3 GOTY recently but I hadn’t sunk my teeth into it until I had some time off over the holidays, and boy am I glad I did, because I got myself a ps4 pro for christmas. Really enjoying it, but these days I don’t have a lot of time so I’ll be chipping away for a while on it.

Also picked up Spider man and my wife is really enjoying watching me run through New York City. I probably won’t get too serious about it until witcher is done.

Also picked up Smash Bros Ultimate and just completed unlocking the roster. Can’t wait for the DLC reveals!

And, because I have an endless backlog problem, I also grabbed Destiny 2 Forsaken. I stopped playing D2 before any of the expansions dropped, so just getting my sea legs back. I will probably play this when I need a break for the witcher. I really enjoy the Destiny series so I’m happy to have more single player content to chew through.


I just made it to the end. My GOTY.




I started Celeste the other day since it’s free with Live. I’m digging the game, but I think I might drop it and grab it on Switch. A game like this I can only play a couple screens at a time so this seems to be a better fit for me on a Switch. Also, I don’t mind supporting Indie developers if they’re making GOTY quality games.


Monster Boy is finished. Next up Smash and Mario Odyssey.


Mostly arcade stuff while I still can - been addicted to Project Diva Arcade and Chunithm most evenings, and I played Sega GT until I finally won a tournament race.

I also picked up the Pinball Senran Kagura game (Peach Ball). I’m a sucker for pinball, though this one is merely OK.

There are two tables with three variations each, but they don’t really have enough variety to make a long free play game engaging enough - I wanted to lose all my balls just to stop playing.

That said, I’m happy these games can still be made - and shipped in a box! - even if they have licenses attached to them. Developer Tamsoft previously worked with Hudson Soft on Alien Crush Returns for WiiWare.
