    Still on my replay of TW3, at the final battle in the main game and doing Blood and Wine at the same time. Goes too fast! Really wish they would have done more real DLC for it, even just more contracts. I haven't done any main Hearts of Stone bc of that fugly facial scar Geralt gets in it until you get it off later. The music is so great in this whole game.

    I’m playing A Plague Tale: Innocence. Thank you EGS!

    The graphics are gorgeous! I think it’s lightings are one of the best in the business. The gameplay is also refreshing because my standards are always shooting or slashing games.

    Buy a fancy new laptop that can do crazy good graphical things, then go back to playing Fallout 4 unmodded.

    I highly recommend both DLCs (The Hidden Ones & The Curse of The Pharaohs) if you haven't got them yet.

    I played several AC games before but Origins is the first one that I completed.

    I got all of it at once. I just 100%'ed it.. there was literally nothing left to do except the quests Reda gives you which I suspect are just endless dynamically generated I didn't bother doing very many they didn't seem worth it. Unfortunately two of the achievements for The Hidden Ones didn't work even though I completed them, saw reports online that it was a bug but I just didn't have it left in me to New Game+ just to try to get them. I was only achievement hunting to make sure I didn't miss any of the game. Best AC game in the series so far IMO (Sorry Ezio, it's just true). Just the museum style discovery tour thing is worth the price of admission IMO. I love history and museums and I was blown away how well they did that.

    I'm playing Odyssey now, like it so far, though there was just something about the Egypt setting that was special. I am liking that it's pretty much an identical system to Origins with a few little tweaks here and there. Definitely also a stunning game so far from an environment and art direction standpoint, though I'm only lvl 5 so far. Can't wait to see how they handle ancient Greece and tie some of the mythology to the precursors like they did with Origins. A little of a stretch in The Curse of the Pharaohs, but it still worked if you let it. hah..

    I suspect with Greece being roughly 300 EDIT: 400 just looked it up, years previous to Origins (Cleopatra was alive from 69-30 BCE) that there is literally no "assassins" part to it since Bayek started the "order". I don't like calling it the Brotherhood, too many badass women assassins for that, and the whole "brother" moniker is steeped in too much problematic thinking. I mean obviously the sneaky assassination mechanic is there, wouldn't be an AC game without it. Will be interesting to see how they handle the precursors in this one (guessing a lot of Greece mythology is wrapped up in it..) and as well how they handle the whole templar vs assassins story thing if at all. Might be hard to do that seeing how Bayek originated that and that was 400 years later. Can't wait to finish it all though, not burned out on them yet. I basically picked Unity back up during lockdown and blew through to Odyssey lol. Hopefully by the time I finish Odyssey I will still feel like moving on to tackling Valhalla. It'll be the first time I've been caught up with the franchise since I was playing them all at release time up to AC3.

    I'd love to see an animated series for AC just kind of following the games from inception. That would be fantastic. I could see a lot of seasons coming out of that. I'm not really into the feature film aspect here there's just way too much stuff to tackle for 2-.2.5 hr movies that take years to make. I'm also a little skeptical of what they are thinking for the next game to be a "service" oriented one. I'll try to keep an open mind about it, but I kind of like the single player aspect, not really a huge fan of any of the MP or community stuff they add in, thankfully it can be ignored for the most part. Especially the parts in Unity where you'd see calls for help from others, one popped up right in front of me while I was in a huge long drawn out mission and I accidentally activated it while trying to loot a body. Was so frustrating that I had to bail on it and restart the whole mission I was on as a consequence..

    This related article just popped up in my feed.. pretty cool

    Fired up Chernobylite and it looks good graphically but the rest is kind of clunky tbh, the base building feels a lot like FO4. Not a big fan of the micro managing rations etc either, another SOD2 thing.

    Just finished TW3 Blood and Wine and I had no idea there was a prison ending lol I suspect last I was playing it primarily back years ago it hadn't been done yet to be covered idk. Have a save to where I can do as many different endings in that, I like the fairytale world more than the vampire cave, syana mm mm good. Still havn't started the final final battle in the main campaign but it's all ready to go. May do HOS dlc first.

    STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order. Bought it during the last Steam sale and just started it. About 4 hours into it. A little too puzzle oriented but I like playing it.
