Time for another go. I had a long gaming break last year, but finished off strong. Let's see how 2019 goes!

Finished (PC unless specified):
  • Far Cry 5
  • Prey
Playing:
Side Games (multiplayer, coop only etc):
  • Overwatch
  • GTA Online
  • Rainbow Six: Siege
  • The Division
1/29 - Far Cry 5. I had fun with this. It was Far Cry, for all that means. There were things I loved, there were things I didn't. Yeah, the story had issues, but it's Far Cry. The story is just an excuse. The gameplay was a blast, save for certain forced events. The ending was... well, it has some possibilities. You're left wondering what happened, and what happens next. We know now that they set up a sequel. As with most Far Cry games, I got tired of its formula just as I was approaching the end, which is a good thing. Criticisms of the story aside, I really did have a blast. Montana was a great setting, familiar enough to feel fresh, as 'our everyday world' is a setting we don't often see in games. Worth the price of admission.

3/17 - Just finished Prey. I really liked this one. If you haven't played it, it's essentially System Shock 3, and is a better 'spiritual sequel' to it than Bioshock. It isn't subtle, either, going so far as to name their holo-panel technology 'Looking Glass.' It really wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be an action shooter. I was very pleasantly surprised. It has multiple endings, moral ambiguity, and choices that significantly affect the outcome.

Finished

Shuyan Saga (1/1/19) - More or an interactive graphic novel, but there is fighting using your mouse. An interesting story and a solid diversion

I haven't finished any games this year!

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel - 20190103 - like Borderlands 2 but with less oxygen and less gravity
Yakuza Zero - 20190121 - nothing I would normally have played, but Humble Monthly gave it to me and I figured I would give it a shot
Tyranny - 20190205 - didn't know much about it going in, still a bit confused, but it was fun :D
Astroneer - 20190216 - the release added an interesting new layer on top of the early access version, also removing some annoyance, thumbs up
Far Cry New Dawn - 20190218 - yeah, two days after finishing Astroneer. A little short for the price, but Far Cry fun... a nice continuation of the story from Far Cry 5.
Destiny 2 - 20190223 - calling it done as much as a multiplayer focused endless game can be done. I finished the story and got what I wanted out of it.
Prey - 20190225 - It took me a few tries to get into it, but once I did I had a lot of fun. Story was... interesting.
Final Fantasy XV - 20190311 - As Noctis says in the final scene, "It's finally over..."

Release Date Tracking:
Metro Exodus: 2/15/2019
Crackdown 3: Feb 2019
The Division 2: 3/15/2019
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice: 3/22/2019

Current rotation-


Yakuza 0 (PS4)

Tomb Raider: Underworld (PC)
Assassin's Creed Unity


Open-ended-

Farming Simulator 2015 (PS4)

Finished-

Tomb Raider Legend (PC) - 01.07
Assassin's Creed Rogue (PS4)
God of War (PS4)

___________________________

Wow, the difference between Tomb Raider: Legend and Underworld is stark for just two years separating them. I always assumed Crystal Dynamics stuck with the same engine for that trilogy.

Didn't expect to finish AC Rogue so quickly. I'm trying to catch up on the series and hewed pretty closely to the main story, Finished at 59%

8/10 Cube Escape Paradox (PC) - Great room escape game, not quite as compelling as the regular Rusty Lake games, but almost.

Playing
  1. Immortal Defense: on Campaign V.
  2. Lunar Silver Star Story Touch: now in Iluk.
Abandoned
  1. Regency Solitaire: the powerups add some neat mechanics, but the story doesn't grab me and it's annoying to have to play all 10 hands of a chapter even when you've completed the chapter's goals. I stopped at chapter 5.
  2. Yosumin!: similar to match 3 games, but you clear rectangular areas of icons by matching four corners. Challenging, but too cute and cloying. I stopped at stage 2-5 of the adventure mode.

Always start the new year with good intentions - right now:
Steins;Gate, Elex, DOS2, and Subnautica are in rotation - with a mindless, occasional sprinkling of Faerie Solitaire :lol:
Jesus said, "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body."[Matt 10:28] God can totally destroy us.

Jesus also said, "For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”[John 6:40] Eternal life is conditional.

His disciple John wrote, "Whoever has the Son has eternal life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have eternal life. [1 John 5:12] Eternal life is optional.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood

I've only played Wolfenstein: The New Order in this series previously so don't come to the series with a sense of nostalgia (though I very much appreciated the secret level in TNO).

A prequel to TNO, it's shorter and more focused on action than action mixed with story. The pitch is that it's a get in / get out mission as opposed to a grand, sweeping, "for freedom's sake" narrative.
Sneaking and scouting is still a major strategy in this game as eliminating the commanders who can call for reinforcements saves on bullets, armour (and checkpoint reloads). But it's the action that is still front-and-centre and (imo) it's done well. A good assortment of weapons and enemies. Scattered health kits and armour reinforcement. The map is helpful (once you find the fragments) to make sure you know where to go.

I had great fun and it was short enough that I'm considering another run.

Just finished Prey. I really liked this one. If you haven't played it, it's essentially System Shock 3, and is a better 'spiritual sequel' to it than Bioshock. It isn't subtle, either, going so far as to name their holo-panel technology 'Looking Glass.' It really wasn't what I expected. I thought it would be an action shooter. I was very pleasantly surprised. It has multiple endings, moral ambiguity, and choices that significantly affect the outcome.

Finished up Sniper Elite 4, which puts me as complete on the whole series. At least until they release 5 next year-ish.

Or I could go back for the Zombie Army Trilogy...
