Shadows of War is simply amazing.

Took it just for kicks... The Bartle Test of Gamer Psychology

80% Explorer
53% Killer
40% Socialiser
27% Achiever

Seems pretty close. I'd say I'm more like:

85% explorer
40% killer
20% achiever
10% socialiser

As a side note related to achiever, I got my first platinum trophy ever (Horizon Zero Dawn) a few months back; in most games I just can't be bothered to run around the world finding all 74 magic teacups or whatever stuff they put in to make getting 100% more difficult.

Just got Wolfenstein II today. It's great. I've already been killed a kajillion times.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

Super Mario Odyssey. Currently in the Metro Kingdom (New Donk City). Outstanding game that has it a nice balance between easy controls and gameplay and genuine challenges that, while requiring skill, never cause you to get stuck on them. The plethora of moons makes it easy to pick and choose which tasks you need to accomplish to progress, allowing for the player to play to his strengths. The new locals are refreshing, each fit in Mario universe while still bringing something unique to the table. While the game’s hype did play up itself as coming from both 64 and Sunshine, it feels distinct. However, there are certain elements that do feel like the fame straight out of Sunshine, where the player is whipped up into a stage without FLUDD Cappy.

Horizon: Zero Dawn dlc... only got about 2 hours in after release at midnight, but so far it's been good.

Finished it... would say it went from good to very good by the end. A lot of fun, a lot of content, and some interesting world building. Also more laughs than I got from the main game, and a sad moment or two. Can't wait for HZD2, maybe in the "forbidden west" (aka Nevada and California). I just hope Sony doesn't try to push for as quick a release as possible, quality be damned.

Tried out Shadow of War, but the game just wasn't for me. Currently playing a game of Civ VI. Have been thinking about picking up either Life is Strange, Hob, or Hellblade, but haven't pulled the trigger.

Hey Justin have you played Bloodborne yet?

I played Dwarf Fortress. It was inevitable.  ;)

Not quite my cup of tea, but I can see why it's a cult classic.
Quote from: Nun M.
The dread Pantocrator...is also "Christouli mou", (my little Christ), who really listens when you run in to your neighborhood church on the way to work to cry and light a candle because your daughter is in trouble at school. The untouchable and all-holy Mother of God is also "Panayitsa mou", who really will take your part before the court of heaven because, just like your own mom, she’ll always stick up for her children, no matter how badly they’ve behaved.

Haven't tried it--didn't really seem like my type of game--though I've watched a couple long youtube videos about it (lol). How is it?

Continuing to play the new Wolfenstein. Still getting killed a lot. Made progress anyway. I probably will have to use a walkthrough before I'm done.
