What a cool mama you are! Last time I tried teaching mine to play Halo she freaked out just trying to aim and move at the same time hahaha

Playing video games with my son has shown me that I have the same reactions as a four year old child when I die at the same spot over and over again or can't find that last thing that I need for 100% :lol:

Diablo 3 and Duke Nukem Forever have popped up in my rotation, February is retro month for DeadSlash, I guess!

duke nukem forever was such a brilliant experience. played this to death and enjoyed every minute of it. gets serious points for the humour and the action. the singleplayer DLC was even better than the core game, adding another 2/5 of content

Yet another game that would be great on the Switch!

Finally getting around playing Pokémon Sun, Pokemon is sure different from than when I was a kid. So far pretty impressed but hate how the first hour of really any video game these days is pure tutorials. 

I agree.

Today's Pokémon bears little resemblance to the original Red and Blue that came out in the mid '90s. 

The concept remains the same, but I feel it continues to be pussified and watered down with each new release. 

I sincerely hope Game Freak caters to Pokémon's older fan base in the Switch release.

I’ve been playing the series since ~2004 and I think the visual/audio aspect of Sun and Moon is great in comparison to the old games. I have to invest more time in Sun/Moon before I have a definitive opinion but I still have enjoyed it.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance has taken over Divinity's spot for now. This is looking to be a masterpiece RPG. Haven't felt this good about a new game since I played DA: Inquisition in 2015.

Could you explain further your thoughts on it? Was already thinking it looked pretty cool. You would like this game @DieselDaisy it's, I believe, a period piece, like all the game's mechanics are setup to be as they were in that time.

Sure. I'm about 8 hours in, so I still have a lot to experience. But so far, it's been surpassing my expectations constantly. I didn't really research the game throughout it's development, or prior to buying it. Thought I knew about KC:D for a while, For Honor had my medieval gaming attention. So I've been really pleasantly surprised as I play through.

To summarize, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a classic-style hero story RPG that takes you through a real world environment and history (to a very high degree of historical accuracy). All of the armor, combat, siege/battle tactics, cultural qualities, quests, cities, maps, etc. are designed to be as accurate as possible.

Although that's commendable itself, the amazing thing this game does is it combines that painstaking attention to history with a terrific RPG formula - I don't think there's been anything quite like this game before. You have all of the RPG standards: risky but rewarding combat, trading/crafting, speech choices (with persuasive characteristics), a large open world (I haven't ventured too far, but I don't think there are any invisible walls), a leveling/perk system, a huge amount of items/loot/misc stuff, a minigame in taverns, different solutions to quests, etc..

Being a 2018 game, but not from a AAA developer or publisher, I wasn't sure what to expect in things like graphics and overall polishing. Well the graphics are terrific, I have it lightly modded on PC and it's definitely a contender for best looking game I've ever played. And I really haven't noticed bugs, glitches, or oddities at all (AC: Origins bugs are still fresh in my mind). EDIT: Although I haven't noticed any, a lot of bugs are being reported. The team is working on patching them.

The story is where you may expect this game to fall short, given how well it does everything else. Nope! The story is gripping, engaging, heartbreaking, and mentally rewarding. And because the setting isn't Ferelden or Nirn or <insert typical RPG world here>, the story is that much more real and immersive. 

I'm sure there are things I'm forgetting to mention, but my bet is this game is going to cement itself as an all time great. 

EDIT: And it has the best NPC facial/movement animations I've ever seen. And the voice acting is 99% excellent so far, only one not-so-good performance and I think his role is done.

"The Forest" is an early release game coming out for real sometime this month.  It's a survival horror game where your plane crashes on a woodsy island and you have to build shelter, hunt, explore.  It's one of the better games I've played in the last few years, and it's only $14.99.

And I'm loving Far Cry 5, atm.
