Purchased Cuphead this morning so looking forward to that after work.
Been playing Shadow of the Colossus over the last week. Its...okay. I can appreciate the aspiration for the time and it has some neat minor concepts but the controls are barely functional (not to mention unintuituve) and that's basically mandatory to release a game. Its doubly frustrating since I'm playing the ps3 release so there was no reason for it not to be patched, either between release cycles or even post-release.
I barely have anything to play, but I mostly try to focus on RPG Maker/pixel art. (I also spend significant time on Discord and checking forums.)
Current game I am playing is Elona and Monster Girl Quest Part 1 (I also picked up Doki Doki Do You Lift Club, but I am guessing that will be done quickly). I have been playing Elona for a very long time and glad to finally be feeling like my character is strong. Apparently I am a really slow player compared to others, but I don't feel like that is a bad thing personally.
I was hoping to try out Legion Saga, but it was for RPG Maker 2000 and I couldn't get an RTP working for it. I also downloaded Vampire Dawn, which I should be playing eventually.
Been playing Pokémon X recently. Filling the Pokedex in the game without using Pokebank this time. Nothing but GTS.
Oh, I'm also playing "Particle Fleet" which is pretty awesome... and the "Creeper World" series which is pretty fun as well. Simple Indie games that essentially prove all you need is a strong concept to create lots of fun.
Deep Rock Galactic, an early access game. It is a four player co-op game about four dwarves (except with a sci-fi slant) exploring pretty much the most dangerous mine in the universe. It is really great, art direction reminds me about a mix of Team Fortress 2 mixed with Half-Life's alien design. I really recommend it although at the moment it is a bit barebone and the price is pretty steep.
I started playing free online games to cut the long working hours. Some of them are quite entertaining. I use proxy to stay anonymous while playing, it helps to protect my data and bypass the restrictions. Works well. Doom and SuperHot I like the most
Now I'm playing Arcane Legends. It's game for android. You have three classes to choose from, each with their own unique set of skills and abilities. There is co-op play as well as PvP modes so you can play and engage with other players. It also includes various PvP formats to keep things interesting. There are tons of things to do. It can get a little repetitive, though...
EVE Online and WoW. Last time I even buy Eve ISK because waiting on new expansion battle for Azeroth. This is good for me because I can fast switch between game and I am starting at the top level and do not need waste time on farming/mining.
Started Lufia 2 and FF V lately. Also would love to get my teeth into Gaia's Melody I just got.
I try to play games as a learning experience so the closer they're to what I'm making myself, the better.
But really my backlog is just too large, it's killing me with shame every day.
