Thanks, guys. I'm not setting any records, just the only one posting a running total. MathGuy just hit 350 completed games while I'm less than half of that.

And Battlefield 1 complete as of tonight. Looking forward to starting BF V... As soon as the price drops. lol

If you keep going at this rate we are going to need a new ribbon to celebrate the hard core.

I've pretty much given up on Destiny. Was fun for a bit (enjoyed D1 and how it progressed), but just grew tired of that grind and repetition. The only future Destiny I plan on playing is the end of its life cycle for cheap. The add on DLCs are mostly just overpriced junk outside of the major expansions, but are still essentially required if you plan on keeping up.
More or less, yea. Doubly so on the "overpriced" comment. At this point the Destiny Franchise, at 1.5 games, has carried the "Day One" cost of more than SIX full games. If you've bought everything as soon as it became available for purchase the franchise has cost over $370. 99% of the time spent playing the game is spent repeating the same thing over and over not so much for the sake of "progression" so much as just mindless "busywork" while hoping for RNG to give you something you'll likely throw out within a week, not because it isn't a decent item but because by the time you finally get it Bungie has rendered it obsolete, whether by releasing yet another DLC that completely changes how things work and it no longer fits, or Bungie has nerfed the ever-loving hell out of it because three people in the Crucible pissed their pants over it being "OP."

I'll dump another set of games again. I'm shocked I have this many in just three months.

Firewatch 1,000/1,000 - Walking sim with some fun humor and a mystery to solve. Enjoyed it, but wouldn't pay full price.

Rocket League 2,200/2,200 - Love this game. New achievements are not that bad if you have a second controller and a decent player.

Grow Up - 1,000/1,000 - Clunky controls with a ton of collectibles. Didn't like it at first, but it... grew on me.

Alice: Madness Returns - 1,000/1,000 - Couldn't get into this. Felt bizarre and the amount of collectibles ruined any chance of liking it. Decent platforming though.

Slime Rancher - 1,000/1,000 - Really enjoyed this, and I have no idea why. It's like pokemon blobs that you force feed to earn as much money as possible to collect more blobs.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia - 1,000/1,000 - Trilogy complete. I liked these spinoffs and hope they do more.

Oxenfree - 1,000/1,000 - It gets good reviews, not really sure why. Story felt like it dragged on and never concluded.

Minecraft: 360 Edition - 2,195/2,195 - New achievements should just say play new tutorial world for 3 hours.

Forza Horizon 4 - 1,000/1,000 - Might be a tie or not quite as good as Horizon 3. Still a great game. Fortune Island DLC sounds amazing next month.

SoulCalibur VI - 1,000/1,000 - Prefer IV and V, but still a good return for the series. The story grind is just dumb. A fighting game doesn't need two story modes that last 20+ hours.

*Battlefield 1* - Not complete yet, but as long as the player base doesn't completely die in the next week I should be fine. About 200 kills left to have all weapon assignments.


I guess I can officially request the "One with the Shadows" ribbon here. I'll add it myself, but if anyone wants to verify I've met the requirements it's the AC Chronicles Trilogy and AC: Liberation HD.

Happy Turkey day.

It's... interesting. I've loved the series since 3 and really gel with Bethesda games. The best way to describe it is like Fallout 4 lite, where you're stuck on survival mode with the option of other people. I've yet to collaborate with anyone else, just doing it solo for now. One thing I will say is it is a SLOW game. I've been playing for about 24hours and feel like I've done very little, and some of the side quests are super long. They have Main, Side, Daily & "Events" (events cycle every few hours). Some of the daily ones may as well take you the entire day.

it's not perfect by any means, but I'm enjoying it. In hindsight would I have paid what I paid for it again? Probably not. But it'll definitely be worth a try when the price drops

So far this is the only concrete thing I've heard about the game other than "It sucks" and "It's great," which is pretty much the only thing you hear about any game now. I haven't played any Fallout game yet, so this wasn't really interesting but I might be see how it is if I end up liking Fallout 3 and/or New Vegas.

For anyone that is interested, it's on Fallout76 is on sale for $40.19 since on the Xbox Store, and I'm assuming similar prices for physical copies.

With the Black Friday sale, I am tempted to bit the bullet and get Destiny 2. I played it a bit on a free weekend, which is the only time I've played the series since the D1 beta. I enjoyed what I did play, and tons of people said that Forsaken was a massive improvement. Would it be something to pick up though, considering I don't have too much time to really play it? I hear it still requires tons of time to sink into it.

Destiny 2 with Forsaken is definitely worth a punt. I'm pretty sure you can get copies of Forsaken with every prior thing included. But as other have said, yes it IS a timesink. D1 and pre-forsaken I had three characters. Forsaken has meant I only have time for 1.5

As for Fo76, a friend just bought it due to Black Friday so i'll have some idea of how it is playing as a team soon. I will also say you need a slightly different mindset to Fallout 4 (and 3/NV in some respects) in that you can't just pick up and hoard everything that might be useful. It's a game that forces choice for survival
