Spent five to six hours playing Doom Eternal.  I found it became repetitive.  Would run into the same group of bad guys; I'd eventually run out of ammo, resort to using the chainsaw to kill one of them that yields more ammo, killed the rest, and then moved on to the next arena where it would repeat.  

Ended up deleting it from my harddrive despite only 30-40 percent of the way through.

Now playing Disneyland Adventures, a game I discovered by accident looking through Xbox Gamepass's library.

The mini-games are fun and it's been almost 30 years since I've been to Disneyland/Disney World.  Kind of enjoying just walking around the park; a nice bit of escapism as we hunker down inside during another cold and snowy Canadian winter.  

Next up are Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Ori and the Will of the Whisp

Got to get as much in before my Gamepass membership expires at the end of March.  

Did you manage to get the super shotgun? I found it got a lot more enjoyable after that with the meat hook attachment.

No, don’t think I made it that far. I had the shotgun, but I’m not sure if it was super. Either way I’d run out of ammo for it fairly quickly.  Plus I’m just god-awful at FPS games so was playing it on the easiest settings (but still finding the game annoyingly challenging).

If I get through the other games I want to play before my three month GamePass trial ends I’ll give it another shot. But I have seven weeks left and four or five more games I want to get through.

Lately I am doing a ton of Fire Emblem: Three Houses for Switch

Nice. I'll definitely be picking that up when the Switch Pro finally comes out. Was really impressed by Awakening.

It is fantastic!  I haven't played any FE titles since the American released Gameboy Advance ones in the mid-2000s so I think a lot of the modern day FE additions were new to me for this one - but I really love it.  The GBA ones were great but definitely a "cutscene, battle, cutscene, battle" thing where the Monastery in this game really opens it up and lets the story breathe a bit

Currently I'm playing Days Gone and CoD Cold War Multiplayer. 

I just finished Hitman 3

CoD Multiplayer gets never old IMO.

Hitman was good as always.

I really like Days Gone. I think it's far from perfect but it has a good Storyline and the main character is very sympathetic imo. These two points are very important to me.

INFRA (2016). An awesome game. Take the most difficult puzzles from Half-Life 1 & 2, put it in a Scandinavian environment but with an English localisation, create sort of a detective story in the background that you have to untangle – and voila, there you go. The office setting at the beginning may look a bit dull, but it develops as you proceed in the game (you’ll soon leave for an abandoned place), and the puzzles get more and more interesting and difficult to solve as you go. The game doesn’t hold your hand; however, there are subtle hints, and it’s always logical, albeit tricky at times. Moreover, it looks like it’s pretty long; I’m far in the game, and from the screenshots I’ve seen, there’s still a long way ahead. Cool! Never knew about this game until recently.

MLB The Show 2021 (on Xbox GamePass)

It’s probably been two decades since I played any serious amounts of time with a baseball game. This game has been great so far. My only gripe is that there’s just so much of it. The old games had one or two modes. Loading up the main menu of this game looks like I’m working at NASA. I’m sure I’ll get use to it but kind of overwhelmed with all the options.

Resident Evil Village. Word of advice to anybody thinking of buying it on PC. Turn variable frame rate off in the settings. Ran like a bag of shite until I switched that off but now it runs brilliantly.

The game ran pretty good for me except for the parts with the 3 bugdaughters, every time these bugs flew past and through me my framerate became pretty much nonexistent. 
 

 

Lately I’ve been racing on GTA5, it’s not realistic in any way but I absolutely love the arcade feeling I get when doing some stuntraces in silly cars.

Been replaying Horizon Zero Dawn, which is one of my favorite games ever. I’m really excited about Forbidden West, but I’ll need a PS5 for that. I won’t risk buying it for the PS4.

The problem I had was that the framerate was jumping by only 1 or 2 frames between 57, 58 - 60 FPS so it wasn't dropping massively but was just really juddery. As soon as I turned off the variable frame rate and just set it to target 60FPS it ran completely smoothly. 

You're right about the 3 daughters though. During those scenes I went from rock solid 60 FPS to about 15 at one point. :lol:

This seems like an unnecessary and counter-productive setting. 

Why not have the game determine your max resolution for various parts of the game and then lock the frame rate for the entire game?

I guess it works if you have a variable refresh rate monitor but I'm playing on a TV with 60hz fixed refesh rate so it just makes it look jittery and gives me a headache.

Decided to see how quickly I could 100% Super Mario 64 last weekend (120 stars and beat Bowser in the Sky) - did it in 5 hours, 35 minutes, not exactly pushing the top speedrunners but I was reasonably pleased with myself as an average gamer :lol: .

Started playing heroes of might and magic 3 again last week (been playing it on and off for over 20 years). It is the heroin of games, its addictiveness is not Good for you. Should've been released with a warning label.

It's an absolute doozy! I got to the top of the clock where there's a yellow block with firespitters and I was trying desperately to collect the coins while not getting hit and "hawhawhawhawhawhawhaaaw-ing" myself off into oblivion. I got most of them, but a few skittered off the edge and I was left with 98 and a sinking feeling that I was going to have to repeat the whole task for the sake of two coins. Fortunately, after a desperate hunt through the clock (all the while singing "just two more coins" to the level's music) right back down at the beginning, I found two coins floating in the air above one of those yellow revolving blocks and the day was saved!

Played the Gears of War 4 and 5 campaigns for the first time. 4 was generic and forgettable and a bit of a repetitive slog to get through but I genuinely enjoyed 5. The open world sections are very surface- level, but I actually enjoyed them since the series suffers from firefight exhaustion. I'll probably get to 6 around 5 years after it comes out
