    I found this game called Spiral Knights, which I know most people just download to get a free hat for tf2, but it's actually pretty fun :3

    Was playing OW with Neo and Sokolgs, and realised each player gains different SR. Also, healers get much less, making it impossible to climb with them. So a big problem is if a team has a dedicated healer and will slowly inch out of the allowed 1000 SR difference

    That just seems like really poor design, especially since healing is such a thankless job in competitive games like TF2 or OW.

    And to make sure I get on topic, I'm still reading and taking notes on my VNs for that music term paper, along with messing around in all the different fighters I have, mainly Nitroplus.

    Beat Kingdom Hearts yet again. I've decided not to go Platinum in it, at least for now. Maybe I'll come back to it again when I have less games I need to finish. I'm also only going to replay KH2 (again, not to Platinum just yet), then continue with my other games. I don't have as much of a connection with the other KH games to warrant replaying then all over again. Until then, ONTO KINGDOM HEARTS II!

    After A slow burn through DS3 and the Final DLC I have been going strong on Enter The Gungeon. I have 2/4 shortcuts unlocked and a bunch of the guns but it's not easy to say the least. I'm hoping I can beat the fifth floor at least once some day so I can unlock the bullet character. Apparently that one's starting equipment is really good. Beyond that I've played through Furi on easy mode. I only made it to the third guy on normal.

    Finally finished Persona 3 Portable a couple weeks ago, so now I'm on Persona 5. (I played and beat Persona 4 Golden several years ago.)

    Just finished KH2FM again. Now playing Shadow of Mordor. I know I'm already late to that boat but it took me a while to get my hands on a GOTY copy. I'm liking it so far. Especially the combat. In fact, I like the combat so much that I'm constantly getting myself killed because I can't turn down a fight.

    Played Shadow of Mordor. Last time I had played it was on my previous computer, and it was basically the first game on that rig where I had to noticeably lower the settings just to make it playable.

    I also have been playing Princess.Loot.Pixel.Again. I've beaten it by all classes except Paladin, though that wouldn't be difficult.

    Been trying for 2 hours to beat Kirby: Planet Robobot's True Arena, and it isn't going well. That third phase for Star Dream is just kicking the crap out of me, and there's still a fourth phase (which is exclusive to The True Arena, by the way) that has an one-hit kill attack that it uses after you kill it, meaning you could beat it, and still have to do the whole True Arena all over again.

    Breath of the Wild, finally got around to sending Ganon to hell. I had all 4 divine beasts and 120 shrines some time ago. I forgot to load up the game clear autosave to see what my actual progress is on the map screen (probably not much).

    Currently messing around in Pokemon Shuffle and Team Kirby Clash Deluxe while I wait anxiously for the Shovel Knight update on Friday (also MK8 Deluxe day!).

    I played Cally's Cave 3. Never played the previous titles. I've finished the normal mode playthrough and will probably return to Shadows of Mordor.

    I really need to get on with Mad Max though, so maybe I'll play that instead.

    Alright banging my head against a wall is working in some part for Enter The Gungeon... I've unlocked all the guns from Ox, completed the ledge goblins quest, and unlocked sir junkin as an item (get him to knight then kill a boss; junkin + 3 junk)... along with a few achievements including meeting lord of the jammed (you've met with a terrible fate haven't you), and getting into the demon's face (password). I also just need the 5 keys and 240 casings in a run, and 20 credits to get the 3rd shortcut unlocked. Man I hate trying to get the keys and money in a run. Made to the fifth floor twice and got wrecked... some day...

    I did end up playing Mad Max. Pretty solid game. It definitely does remind me of another Avalanche game series, Just Cause. No flying around or anything, but still.

    I like to 100% my games so I'm working on a few things there (slowly):
    NieR:Automata, Nioh, Gravity Rush 2, Wario Land 1, Donkey Kong Land 1, Bomberman Heroes, Snake Pass, LoZ: OoA/S. Probably a few things I'm forgetting about.

    But as far as just straight up playing:
    Puzzles & Dragons Z, Pokemon Moon, Yooka-Laylee, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Megaman Battle Network 5 DS, Sonic 1 (Master System)

    And this doesn't take into account my backlog of stuff I have that I haven't touched yet:
    Kirby Planet Robobot, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Metroid Prime Federation Force, Okami, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Trauma Center: New Blood, The Talos Principle, The entire Legacy of Kain Series...

    I have too many games @_@

    I just completed "The Sexy Brutale." I like macabre stuff, I like interconnected storytelling, I like electro-swing, so of course I liked this game.

    Basically it's a game about being stuck in a 12 hour time loop at a casino resort where all the guests are being murdered. You can't be in the same room as another living person, so you have to intervene in all the murders indirectly. But of course, since time is looping, saving someone doesn't actually mean anything. Your ultimate goal is to stop the time loops and escape. The really cool thing is that, since all the murders are happening over the same 12 hours, you hear and see evidence of them all throughout the day. Like, at the same time every loop you'll hear a gunshot. Or a body will drop down from an area you can't get to yet, and you don't find out how it happened until later. 'Sreally cool.

    I got a little stuck at one part because I spent ages trying to solve a puzzle only to realize I had missed a door, and trying to solve the puzzle without going through the door was literally impossible. It was frustrating, because I was really thorough the rest of the game. I even got all 52 collectible cards on my first try, I was that meticulous. Anyway, check it out. It's pretty cool and it's on steam. And it makes me hope that one of the character themes in TFH is electro swing.

    I finished the story of Mad Max. I might play it a bit more, to unlock the final V8 Engine upgrade, but I'll probably move on to Bayonetta next.

    Might have to wrap it in spoilers, but how did you feel about the end? It basically sucked my desire to keep playing for some reason.

    I feel your pain, bud.

    I just recently finished Shadow of Mordor. It was pretty good, but it be lying if I didn't say I was starting to get kinda bored with the fame after a while. Began to get really repetitive and the extra missions from the GOTY edition didn't help. Right now, I've been playing Watch Dogs 2. I like it so far, except for the characters and how they all talk. It's like their dialogue was written by people who think this is how everyone talks these days. That and the driving mechanics still suck, but those aren't enough to break the game for me. Still fun to play.

    I finished Persona 5 a week ago with 140 hours put into that playthrough, fantastic game. I'm currently playing Shadow of Mordor. I will probably get through a small list of short games this month.

    I also bought a Nintendo Switch at the last minute but no game yet. I not sure if i want to get MK8 Deluxe or Breath of The Wild.

    Oh really? I have a friend who loved that game and I was thinking of trying it myself since the fame thing looked interesting and unique. And I for some reason decided to forgo my backlog and went with Talos Principle. BOY am I glad I did. Its kind of nice and refreshing. Also I'm a sucker for pseudo-philosophy nonsense.

    I have both of those! I put probably 150+ hours into Zelda the day it came out for like a straight 2 weeks practically. there were a few hours where I was doing something like watching youtube or something but I demolished that game. I would say its the most fun ive had in a game in a LONG time, but the past few months have been EXCELLENT as far as good games go. With MK8D, I only got it because my roomie and I are super nerds and are really competitive with MK and with friends. one of our most frequent nights is 2-3 people over taking turns filling the room with salt. Couldn't ask for better friends.

    If he had just been honest with himself, and taken a little risk, like his dreams showed he wanted to do, they'd probably still be alive. Heck, they'd still be alive probably if he had simply taken them with him to go after Chumbucket, since Big Bad Butthole would probably still be looking for the Hope and Glory when he found Chum and beat Stank Gum.

    And it was all for nothing in the end, as he ended up destroying the car anyway. All that effort and loss for a vehicle that got tossed off the side of a cliff.

    There was rather a lack of room for Hope, Glory, and Chum in the vehicle though.

    Instead of playing Bayonetta, I went back to Fallout 4.

    I always do that. Go back to playing old games that I know I like, rather than trying a new game lest I be disappointed....

    Well, I haven't posted here in quite a while, but it has been quite ride in terms of gaming, so this is going to be a very long post as a bit of a catchup.

    In terms of games that I'm currently playing right now, I've been playing Kirby Planet Robobot, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Overwatch, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Wonderboy the Dragon's Trap and Zelda BotW.

    I am actually very close to completing Kirby, Xenoblade and Wonderboy.
    I only have to do Kirby's True Arena. It has been challenging, but it doesn't look impossible. I've only attempted it 3 times so far. The first two attempts I managed to get to Galacta Knight and the 3rd attempt I managed to actually get to the final form of the boss, but I had only enough hp to take 2 hits, so I ended up being killed normally by a hit from one of the pillars and one of its bomb attacks. The only boss I've had real trouble with is the Dedede clone boss fight surprisingly.

    Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is pretty much just some fun with family and friends. I will probably not be focusing on completing this one since I did a pretty good amount of work on the Wii U version. I never got the DLC, so it was still a somewhat new experience

    Xenoblade X was a long term amount of progress with me stopping and starting it up at least 3 separate times. I actually completed the first Xenoblade Chronicles, so I was expecting this to take a while. After nearly 30+ hours of post-game farming, I just finished off the arguably most powerful superboss in the game, Telethia the Endbringer, so I only need a single quest to get 100% survey on all of Mira. The final quest I need is Rise of the Blood Lobster, which is a collection quest with 99 hidden items in the city. It is driving me a bit insane and reminding me a bit too much about Korok seeds in BoTW(Which I have 300+ of) so I'm probably just going to look up the locations.

    I picked up Wonderboy off of the E-Shop for the Switch and I was pleasantly surprised. I hadn't played any of the old Wonderboy titles back then, but it really did feel quite genuine in terms of old platformers along with an amazing soundtrack. I actually ended up finishing the game without fighting Pirate Dragon since I somehow figured out how to find and use the Tasmanian sword without using a guide. First time I figured out the secondary function of the sword, I actually got stuck and thought the game was glitched. Only need to farm for coins to get all the items, and I'm set. I finished a majority of this in only about 5 hours in one day.

    I finally picked up Overwatch a few months ago and I'm enjoying it. I mostly end up picking Mercy though. I do love supports in most games. I jumped right into ranked straightaway and it seems like I did okay. Ended up right on the border of 2000 and only had to play a few more games to get past it. I haven't really gone any farther though since I've dropped to 1920 currently.

    I have all the shrines completed in Zelda, still have to do a little less than 10 sidequests. I'm mostly just messing around now. I'm actually trying to figure out if it is possible to beat all of Ganon's Blight forms using only deflection(with a pot lid), though considering the amount of damage you do with it, it seems like a very tedious kind of thing, so I'm not sure if it is even possible. When the game first came out, I actually tried to see if an early completion was possible with only 3 hearts, but I had poor weapons at the time so I had to use unupgraded bombs after my gear broke. I actually got all the way to the 4th form with certain camping spots and bombs. It took me 3 1/2 hours to get to this point... Then I got one shot by a normal sword attack from the 4th form.

    Other games that I completed/finished/played in my time away include Don't Starve Together, Dwarf Fortress, Final Fantasy X, Lisa: The Painful, Papers Please, Parappa the Rapper 1 and 2, Pokemon Sun and Moon, Rhythm Heaven Megamix, and Starbound.

    I typically play Don't Starve Together with my little brother and his friends. We've never made it past summer time.

    I opened up Dwarf Fortress for about 10 minutes, looked up a guide, got confused by the screen and decided to close it up for another time. I don't know if I'll ever understand the interface.

    I got tired of the end game monster arena farming in FFX. I'm actually rather close, so I could probably complete the game and fight the final superboss in about a weeks time of normal gameplay, but it really seems quite tedious. I am not sure if I will pick it up again.

    I've played Lisa:The Painful for a few hours. I have a soft spot in my heart for RPGs like this, so I will probably continue playing this eventually. It seems rather dark though.

    Same thing for Papers Please, I haven't gotten an ending yet, though I did enjoy it for the short time that I played it.

    I completed and got cool mode on Parappa the Rapper rather easily on all stages. As hilarious as the freestyle was on the first one, it was rather easy to complete. I had a lot of trouble getting cool mode on 2, so decided to just leave it as a finished game.

    Pokemon Moon is probably the longest amount of time that I've spent attempting to get the last 1% of a 99% completed game ever. This 1% being the Multis mode of the battle tree. The amount of time that I've spent breeding/trading/doing battles in it has overlapped the time I've spent beating and completing the Pokedex for this one mode. That's not even including the research I did with a community of people who were also doing the battle tree. What's horrible is that I still haven't completed it. 50 streak Super Singles and Doubles were completed in a reasonable 8-12 attempts, but multis. Oh Multis... I am currently on attempt #76. I've used 14 separate teams with 2 subpar AI partners. I've gone through Doubles at least 9 times looking for good partners, but alas RNG is not good to me. I only managed to see Red and Blue on attempt #27 with one of my least prepared Pokemon just for the fun of it, in which that battle they utterly annihilated me in. My last attempt was done when I was in line for a midnight release of the Nintendo Switch. That run ended on the 49th trainer, right before Red and Blue... After getting the switch, it is pretty obvious why I haven't gone back to it just yet. Oh, I also went to a regional a long while back. Actually almost got to play into top 16, but I got beat by a guy using a cheesy, yet effective Butterfree strategy. Sleep OP. Still a pretty nice result considering I was also kind of using a cheesy team since I had no UBs or Tapus on it.

    On the other hand, Pokemon Sun is a simple Nuzlocke file. Not much to say here as it is going rather well with no dead Pokemon while being near the end of the 3rd island. I don't play it often though.

    Rhythm Heaven is another game where I've been stuck on the very last part of the game, though I still have to feed the goat to the max level. The game I need to perfect is Machine Remix. Those hair patterns are so hard to hit, especially using just the normal button controls. I think I'll eventually get it, but I've attempted this game a lot more than should be normal.

    I've played Starbound for a bit on a server. The main game was kind of boring to be honest, but I beat it anyway.

    I'm currently looking into playing
    Shovel Knight Specter of Torment
    Civilization V

    and of course the beta to this game when it comes out. I'll be looking forward to playing with you all!

    Checkmarking two games off of my list. I completed both Kirby Planet Robobot and Xenoblade Chronicles X 100% today.

    Finishing up Kirby was very satisfying. Xenoblade was a bit tedious, but it was fun ride for as long as it lasted.

    Finally getting around to Shadow of Mordor. I know it's supposed to remind me of AC and Batman, but I've barely/never played either of those. Instead it just reminds me of inFamous, at least as far as how easily I get distracted by side missions and collectibles.
