Definitely want to hear your thoughts on Sekiro.

I played through FFVII twice when it came out, and am an unabashed FF fanboy (I will actually defend the XIII trilogy) - but FFVII has not aged well at all and is an absolute grind.

Still not far at all, can only put about an hour a night into it as of now, and even skipped two nights for a concert/movie. Through the Hirata memory and just got past the big ass snake.

You? Plugging along?

Ape Out and Baba is You, killing me on the Switch

I need to get Baba is You, but yeah... Ape Out. Fan-drymounting-tastic. Just joyous fun. I wish there were a score mode or something like that, but what is there is great. Perfect handheld game.

Finished Minit yesterday. Good, but a little tedious at times. I feel the narrative is a little too loose to hang a concept on. I enjoyed it, but when it finished I couldn't help but feel... that's it?

yeah im getting there
I killed 2 main bosses, and then hit a wall about a week ago. Couldn't kill anyone.
Have proceeded quite a ways now though. In order to not spoil anything, my Vitality is 16 and my Attack Power is 7.

For fans of Left For Dead, would highly recommend picking up World War Z. If you can at least get one other human player in the squad, its a really good time.
Deserves got nothing to do with it.

Finally beat Sekiro last night, man that game beat the fudge out of me. My main complaint - and it is completely driven by the fact that I’m honestly not that good at these games - is that the difficulty at the end of the game limited my willingness to extensively explore, coupled with the fact that I had at least a few instances where I had to pull up walkthroughs to figure out where the hell I was supposed to go. I loved how open everything was, but at the same time the game felt even more opaque than the Souls games as to what it wanted me to do at times.

All that said, it really is an awesome game, though I doubt I’ll revisit it in the same way I revisit Dark Souls and Dark Souls 3.

Glad to hear you enjoyed it mate.

Me, i didnt want it to end. I loved how Ashina Castle completely changed on the third visit there, to find stronger enemies everywhere. I completely explored every place and wished there was more to do.
I found the difficulty very manageable. There was one point in the game, basically from the first Genichiro fight to the Great Ape fight, where I thought I was "stuck". I just couldn't beat these guys, and the Snake Eyes mini-bosses.
But once I got through them I coasted through the rest.

My one complaint is the re-use of enemies. 3 ogres?! really? and headless and schichmen warriors. They're all easy so why not just create other kinds? ah well, thats only minor.

Im doing NG+ now and enjoying it a lot, as I feel ive mastered the combat.

Yeah, I find that for some people the combat in these games just sort of clicks for them, where it really never does for me. Years ago I was running a SL80 dex build on the initial Dark Souls and was able to play it really well, but that was the last time I really felt in sync with the games. I tend to struggle through them, and - Sekiro excepting just due to progression system - tend to have to grind levels to get strong enough to muddle through the games. Which is fine, I love the Soulsborne games more that any other games over the past 15 years, I just admittedly am not that good at them.

When I hit a wall in Sekiro I took like a week off and went back to Dark Souls 3 and finished up an abandoned playthrough, so that was fun. Now I've booted up the Dark Souls remaster and am playing through it. Probably will do another run of Bloodborne as well after that.
