    I got a popup video ad for the PC release of that yesterday. It was the first time I've ever been happy to see a popup ad.

    It's weird, I definitely beelined 0, 6, and Kiwami, but Kiwami 2 I'm actually just taking my time living in the world and checking out as much as possible. Might go back to those games now and do the same until they finally bring the rasters of 3, 4, and 5 stateside.

    Played breath of the wild for a few hours and now my switch has been sold :D

    I think it's fair to say that it wasn't my game at all.

    So I'm in Golem City in Deus Ex Mankind Divided.

    For such a narrow play area, it's got an amazing sense of vertical scale and location. Absolutely loving this game- it's such a leap forward from the previous one.

    Was it the weapon-breaking? That's what stopped me!

    legit one of the most annoying things in breath of the wild, especially since better weapons still have shit durability.

    Weapon durability is the devil. Never would've expected to see it in a Zelda game but I guess BotW was pretty ambitious as far as the typical Zelda game goes. I haven't played it since I don't own a Switch but I've watched a buddy play it a bit.

    The weapon durability, now that I think about it, may be why I haven’t gotten far is BotW, considering I got that and. Switch like a month after launch.

    Late to the game but just finished Horizon Zero Dawn. Great story with some really impactful moments.

    Now on to Far Cry New Dawn.

    Edit: yeah BOTW was not for me either. Survival mechanics/gear wear and tear elements in general are big turn offs for me.

    Yeah, I had absolutely no fun in the 3-4 hours I played botw, easily the worst Zelda out of those I’ve played.

    FC New Dawn is kinda fun. I’m too bad at FPS games to do the high level side missions though. It made me sad!

    The other thing about that game I didn’t like was what they did with sidekicks, they’re less controllable. There’s no one close to the super-OP bow woman in 5, the bow guy in it was total crap even when leveled up!

    Yeah, it was one of the reasons I wasn't into botw. Well, I made a pretty penny selling it so it doesn't matter.

    Wait, what!? This is the first I’ve heard about a new one of those! I had the original and really liked it. I’ll have to check it out.

    I was looking forward to this, but I may wait for this one to drop in price. Heard it's like a mix of Doom and Mad Max, but gets repetitive quickly.

    I found DOOM a little repetitive by the very end but Mad Max kept me captivated with the world, story and scenery changes. I don't like buying games until they get a few patches so I think I will wait too.

    That description kind of fits what I was expecting. But it also doesn't sound that exciting. I'd suspect the "style" of the game would get old real fast, to me. I could just play Doom and watch Mad Max instead.

    Reroll is the HD remake of the original Katamari Damacy, for the Switch.

    I meant more like the Mad Max game that came out a couple of years ago, but yeah, that works too :lol:

    I'm working my way through the PS4 port of the first Borderlands anyway, so I'm good on the wasteland-RPG-Shooter genre. Plus I plan on going back to Borderlands 2 to finish the Platinum before BL3 comes out.
