Been playing rise of the tome raider. Excellent game so far but the story......makes me think they are taking a shot at the Christina faith. The main antagonist is an evil stigmata experiencing maniac who works for an evil organization called trinity. Lots of mention of the Byzantine empire, lots of Greek and Russian texts that Lara comes into contact with. And there is this mention of a prophet who was persecuted, he seems like a Christ-like figure.

Witcher 3

It's no Skyrim, but it'll do for now...

Dragon Age: Inquisition. Loved the first game, liked the second, and rather enjoying this one.

Hoplite. It's really good.

Tome Raider? Is this a crazy mod of Tomb Raider. Weird that the game would have Christian symbols deliberately implied to be evil. How does the prophet intervene in gameplay. Any other sports gamers out here?

After beating the main story (and sidequests) for Arkham Knight around Christmas, I've been playing a ton of Fallout 4. Both are a lot of fun.

Arkham Knight was a good ending to the rocksteady Arkham trilogy. When I tire of Fallout 4 I'm going to jump back in and play the Harley Quinn missions.

Witcher 3

I'm liking this game more and more, though the jumping animations and trying to stop after running can be frustrating. Ahh well, small gripes I guess.

Heck yeah!  I had to carve out an entire mountain side to build my Mount Rushmore esque colossi of Donald Trump, Mac Dre, the Emperor Pupienus, and Toshiro Mifune.
