[Official] What are you playing?

  • Been playing Genshin Impact a lot since my friends' enthusiasm for this game is quite infectious. I just reached rank 39 and beaten the latest main quest. It's a good game for sure. I definitely enjoyed the story quests, despite being annoyed by some of the story beats and character moments. I'm kinda surprised by how engaging the story can be, it's clear that a lot of care and thought was put into it. I think it can feel a bit blunt and cheesy at many times, but it's a solid effort overall. I also really enjoyed the combat system, it's so fun when you have a good team composition that feeds off each other's powers. Unfortunately at this point the game's grindiness is obviously a much bigger obstacle than ever before, so I think it's safe to say that this very moment will be the peak of this game for me, at least until the next big update comes. Hopefully it doesn't go too downhill.

  • I checked out the intro of Mafia Remastered, I'm planning to continue in the near future. Also to my surprise game runs really smooth and looks really nice. I'm happy about it, I was expecting some issues because of my old CPU and 8 GB ram.

  • Played and finished Bugsnax now I'm getting into Empire of Sin-at the moment it reminds me of last year's Narcos: Rise of the Cartels with its turn-based action/strategy gameplay as well as that Peaky Blinders: Mastermind game that came out several months ago.

  • @scotty Mafia: Definitive Edition is really awesome and I find it far more compelling than Mafia II and Mafia III.

  • @jdincinerator

    I hope so. Intro is already good and both Mafia II and Mafia III(especially III) has really good intros.

  • Getting back into Halo Master Chief Collection now that i have my series x. so nostaligic for me.
    haven't played my Halo since about 2015 because how broken and slow the Xbone was. loved how seamless it was transferring my save data was since it was all still backed up in the cloud even after all this time ")

    I never played the abysmal XBO version, but I got MCC on PC and 60fps with a wider field of view on Halo 3 has made this the most immersive and fun game for me in all of 2020. I've poured like 50 hours into Halo 3 multiplayer and it doesn't even have all the community stuff that the 360 did. The game is just that fun on its on. No skins, no upgrade trees, no XP nonsense. Just FUN. 343i hasn't done a fantastic job with the series but Halo MCC is awesome.

    I started watching Mike & Mike play Dark Souls 3 so I decided to hop in. I haven't played since my OG PS4. I can't tell if the performance is better or not on PS4 Pro, but the game seems to be running pretty smooth which is very nice. I really love the heck outta this game, but I double down on saying its a Greatest Hits compilation of the Souls series. I feel weirdly nostalgic playing a game that's as recent as 2016.

  • Tried out Just Cause 4. Maybe it's because I have played nothing but great games recently, but man, this feels so janky and underwhelming. The game looks pretty wack too, the HDR looks so off to me. Might be a quick uninstall for me.

  • Bought Battlefield 1 on PS4. I played the PC version for probably like 50 hours back in 2016-2017, and I haven't played this since my previous laptop broke. I remember thinking that it was one of my favorite Battlefield games, and after playing it for around 5 hours, I think it holds up pretty well. I'm only familiar with the base content, and seeing the DLC stuff certainly helps making this game feel fresh again. There's even more weird ass guns now, I love it.

  • Does MXC count? Cause I've had this on in the background while working
    Watch OnlyMXC with me on Twitch! http://www.twitch.tv/onlymxc?sr=a

  • This just dropped on Gamepass. If anyone's into a cool mysterious game give it a try. The kind of game where you're drop in it without knowing what the hell is going on and what to do next. Very weird, dark, mysterious atmosphere. Probably because of Cyberpunk I won't stick with it but for now it has been an intriguing experience.

  • @phbz Just downloaded it probably won't play it for a while due to the same reason. In fact there is about 5 games that dropped on Gamepass this week that I want to check out.

  • @paulmci27 This is like a mix of Limbo with Dark Souls. Kicking my ass left and right but very engaging.

  • @phbz I read a quick review there. It mentions that the difficulty is brutal.

  • I'm near to the end of Uncharted: Golden Abyss and left the game for a bit because how frustrating it got. I stuck in shootout and stupid game design just makes it even more annoying. Guess will wait longer until get back to continue.

  • After a string of mildly embarrassing events, I ended up with a copy of Watch Dogs 1 instead of Watch Dogs 2 (which I was looking to replay on PS4, already ordered a copy of that as well). Never played the first game before, so it's a blessing in disguise, I guess. Just finished Act 1, and it's a pretty good time. It's not too far from what I expected: it's not as good as the sequel, but hey, I can't ask too much from franchise debuts. The worst thing about this game so far is that there's way too many vulgar sexual related stuff when it comes to the privacy breaching "lore", I feel like almost every conversation/scene I stumbled into has some sort of weird shit going on. It's not exactly the most exciting reward to hack into some random thing when all you get is a camera to a dude pretending to make out in the bathroom.

  • Bought Star Wars Squadrons a while back, and I was really disappointed with it, so I digged through my PS+ games and downloaded Strike Vector EX to help scratch the itch. Man, I wish there more games like this. I really like the setting and the aircraft designs, and it's a really fun and crazy space shooter.

  • I'm trying to play first Metro but it just doesn't pull me you know. I am at the beginning, the journey barely began but still just something about it makes me want to leave it and just read the plot from wiki then move on to the next one. I don't know, I'll try to progress more with the story before the new year but not holding so much hope.

  • Played about 4 hours of Deus Ex Mankind Divided. I only played half of the game years ago, so this is kinda like a new playthrough to me. I have to say, the game's opening felt a bit weak. The Dubai level is pretty neat design-wise since it introduces a lot of the Deus Ex design style well enough (like ventilation routes, breakable walls, etc), but story wise it's overwhelming and incoherent, and I didn't have enough time to process it until the game lets me off the hook later on. Once I got to the first hub world, the game really starts to get better, with the level design not holding back on allowing so much freedom. It feels really dense since there's a lot of small things to find, and because of that exploration feels quite rewarding. I pretty much stumbled upon 2 side quests by chance because I got carried away exploring the ventilations shafts and what not. Hopefully I can finish this soon.

  • I started to play original God of War on the PS Vita. Recently some rumours started that first game will get a remake, that is one of the reasons for me to start again but I also wanted it too. It plays nice beside some fps problems and more practical than connecting the old PS2 to a flat screen.
