Spent some time with the Gran Turismo Sport beta last night. It's really pretty. I haven't gotten a chance to try rally racing or the VR preview yet.

That’s awesome. I want to pick up GT sometime, especially about hearing everything that is happening with Forza.

The beta is only open to download for a few more days. I don't know if it will be playable after that time.

I didn't realize the new South Park game was coming out next week until I saw last night's new episode. I don't have time or money for it!! But if it's like the last one, it'll be 1/3 the price within a month...

and like the last one, I expect it to be awesome.  That's definitely a game I want to play, but also a game that i'll wait till it's cheap like the last one.

I picked up Stick of Truth a few months ago for 7.50 on Steam, what a steal. But it was also a really short game, so oh well. I hope this one's longer with more to do.

I don't think I even really enjoyed the game play a whole lot, felt it got repetitive, but I loved the story and how it felt like a south park movie in a way.  With all the throwbacks, as a big fan of the show, it was really fun to play through and be part of South Park in a way.  I think I enjoyed that moreso than the gameplay and shortness.  But yea, for 7.50 that's a steal of a game.

Almost done with this playthrough of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. I like the game a lot, but it does feel like a bit of a drag sometimes.

I was bored today so I downloaded and tried out Fortnite's "Battle Royal" mode and it's pretty damn fun. Even thought he rule set is the same a PUBG it feels a lot lighters and the distances aren't so bad. The style of the game also leads to better optimization.

I need to get The Evil Within 2.
Why isn't there a new Dead Space game already? Feels like it's been a while.

Uhhh probably because the last one sucked some serious Necromorph wang.

The studio has said that there's still interest in the series but the horrible sales of the last game, along with some pretty abysmal critical and fan reception have probably killed it.

I'm not up for another one unless they bring back the tried and true original format. It was so painfully obvious that they caved into the trends of other games that sold well around the time of 3's release that it wasn't even Dead Space anymore save for some atmospheric moments and the character design. The first is still one of my favorite horror games though. Even in the 2nd I could see it degrading and by the time I was looking at trailers for the 3rd I had lost any interest. I think I played about three hours and said screw it.

I'm loving the hell out of Shadow of War. I'm not a child ruled by random irrational choices (and also have a job), so the micro-transactions don't bug me...and the minor lore stuff is beyond me since I'm only a pretty casual LOTR fan. But I love the heck out of the world they built (or piggybacked) and the gameplay mechanics and surrounding system of enemies and bosses. This one will keep me busy for a long while.

I'm not a child and have a full time job and still hate microtransactions out of principle.  :biggrin: The world does look enormous though. Buddy of mine is playing through and says it's awesome but he also knows fuck all about Lord of the Rings so I guess in his case ignorance is bliss. Tell me though, can I still hold a button and make orcs' heads explode at will? That was my favorite method of killing mooks in SoM.

My buddy who is burnt out of PUBG got me playing with him yesterday.  It's fun, but feels like a cheap version of PUBG (which being free, essentially is).  I have no issues with the cartoonishness of it (feels like Team Fortress which I love) but the gameplay is not as smooth.  The shooting I find to be more difficult (I guess cause it's all 3rd person) and the inventory system is terrible.  I feel like the building part of the game isn't that interesting either.  Probably need to play more to really get into that aspect of it.  I guess I am also getting burnt out of PUBG and need a change.  I'm not sure Fortnite is it though.  Maybe I'll be playing some Battlefield again.

Were you playing Battlefield 1?

Yea, I was obsessing over it before I started obsessing over PUBG.  I probably suck now if I play it

I had a great time with Battlefield 1, I sort of fell out of it because I was moving states and never returned.

One game I've always wanted to try is Titanfall.

I just don't get the massive amount of sheer temper tantrums people throw over it. Not liking it is one thing, calling for the heads of the people who made the game is another, and that's happening in droves. I'm guessing some are kids/trolls throwing actual tantrums, some don't understand business (because dollars to doughnuts, those microtransactions are selling enough to justify the backlash; I'd love to eventually get some numbers on them...for the record I haven't bought any yet, I may or may not depending on how long I play the game), and then those like yourself just don't like the idea in itself of paying for a game and then having to buy extra stuff, which is totally understandable. Then again, they are in fact totally optional, which is where my confusion in all the huge hate comes from. I'd understand if it was something huge like "buy this loot box to unlock another part of the story!", but it's almost entirely forgettable, menial things. I digress though. To each their own!

You most certainly can explode heads in this game. There's a lot of returning features along with just as many new ones. It's great because it definitely feels like a continuation of the first while refining the mechanics that weren't so hot and adding some new ones along with the obvious story continuation. On the other side of that coin, if you didn't like the first one, this one is so similar that it's not going to change anyone's mind in the slightest. And yeah I'm almost completely void of LOTR knowledge barring the massive obvious things like the main characters and huge lore points.

Titanfall 2 is pretty awesome.  Good single player story in that (compared to none in Titanfall 1).  The multiplayer is the same and fun, but I spent a lot of time playing 1 and after beating the story in 2, I didn't hang around the multiplayer that much longer.

Speaking of TF2, a big Team Fortress 2 update was revealed on Monday and they're showing content day by day until they release it all tomorrow.

I love Titanfall 2, I played it much more than I thought I would. The campaign is fun and entertaining and the level design is brilliant at times.
I seems to always wanna get back into a MP game mainly because it's easy to get into and addictive.
I like the fact that once you get into your mech human players become squeezable bugs.
There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

Fire Emblem Warriors releases tomorrow and yet I've barely scratched the surface of Disgaea 5 and I'm 75 hours in. I guess that's a good thing, I'll just pick it up cheaper at a later date, but damn, time has been flying.

Anyone grabbing Mario Odyssey next Friday? Pre-ordered mine last week.

Looking forward to getting Odyssey... Eventually.

Playing the recent 3DS Metroid at the moment. It's pretty good, nothing amazing. Much more combat heavy than other 2D Metroids I've played and the difficulty is all over the place. Some of the bosses have given me a bit of trouble but the regular combat is actually a bit rubbish; parrying is too easy and the same for every enemy so getting through a room with a bunch of them just kind of interrupts the rhythm. Good atmosphere and generally enjoyable exploration though. And there's always something addictive in Metroid when it comes to just find out what upgrade you'll get next.

Re: Titanfall 2... I liked it a lot. Solid campaign and I played the multiplayer a ton until BotW came out, and now it'll take too long to get halfway decent at it again and I don't even know how many people are still playing it online. Great game though, worth it even just for the campaign if you can get it cheap

I'm going preorder it tomorrow. I wanted to do so today because I finally signed up for Best Buy's GCU thing but the dumb fuck store has a policy that you can't use your discount until the account's been active for 24 hours. Pretty effective way to drive away business by making it impossible to join the program and get (or preorder) the game you wanted all in one trip.

Did you get it pre-ordered today, bbs? I hope you get to play it on time, the only info I've bothered looking up for myself is basically longer videos on Gamexplain and Game Informer's YouTube channels, and the official trailers, but from what I've gathered the game looks just gargantuan, lots of worlds. And the monster control mechanic looks amazing. Weekend can't come soon enough.

Yes I did :) I get off of work at 9:30pm Thursday night and I'm probably going there right when I get off since they're letting us get our copies at 11:00pm since they're supposedly using 12:00am EDT as the company-wide release time and I'm in the central time zone. I'm going that early so I don't miss out on muh coin.

I have work from 4-2am the next day so I might just binge on this fucker for like 4 or 5 hours since I only have 9 hours off between my Friday and Saturday shifts. I'm just happy that my Switch is finally gonna feel like a real Nintendo system. BotW is very cool but it ain't a Nintendo system until it has a proper Mario game.

OMG yes!

I would also love for the two Galaxy games to be re-released for the Switch since I was never interested in the Wii.
