    Playing Minecraft PvP... that's my latest addiction during the quarantine! If anyone of you are also playing it, would you mind giving some tips on fast clicking? I took the cps test and barely reach 10 clicks per second.

    Finished inFamous: Second Son. Overall, it was pretty good. Great gameplay, paired with great music and gorgeous graphics. The story was okay, but felt very jumpy, and I could swear that I must have somehow skipped a cutscene here or there from how the plot seemed to jump to some new points, especially with regards to dealing with Fetch after her boss fights (and outside of maybe the one against He Who Dwells, the boss fights seem to be at least twice as long as they need to be due to them being damage sponges). While I'm glad that they made it so that you can still do the Paper Trail DLC mission even after the website hosting its clues is no longer active, the fact that they didn't give you some way to officially get those clues in the game makes that feel far more stilted than the normal plot, and I think that it either broke on me or I am unable to find where I'm supposed to go next and there are no clues left on my map, so there's that.

    Characterwise, its mostly okay, though they really need to have the boss be on screen way more often and Delsin was super punchable for almost the entire game. He basically feels like some committee's idea of what a rebellious twenty-something should act like, and the fact that he used stencil-based graffiti makes him look like he's doing rather tepid street art than trying to stick it to the man. Oooh, you made a crack in the wall look like a cat is peering out of it! That'll show the hyper militarized government force that has official authority to capture and torture people at their leisure and is specifically doing so to two different ethnic minorities that you are a part of that you won't stand for it any more!

    I then followed up with inFamous: First Light, which tweaks the Neon Powers and the map in small ways that notably improved them, had much better challenge missions (I don't know why there were no real race challenges in Second Son, at least), and Fetch was a much deeper and likeable protagonist than Delsin, with much more thematically significant graffiti. I do kinda wish that they went into her addiction problems more in the immediate story, rather than relegating it mostly to the flashbacks.

    On a similar note, I'm also trying out Concrete Genie, and its like, super charming. I'm really enjoying it thus far.

    Alright, beat Concrete Genie and may go back to get the few collectibles remaining. It gets a bit cheesy, but overall I really enjoyed it and the semi-free-form graffiti was surprisingly satisfying to play around with. I would really like to see a sequel to this with the extra Paint Powers (or at least Paint Skating) maybe being introduced earlier and allowing you to expand them a tad, and with better lock on functionality for the more action-y portions of the game.

    I also don't remember being able to move like a short Nathan Drake when I was Ash's age, but hey, maybe all teenaged/pre-teen painters also do parkour on the side.

    Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2, ps4.

    Free game i downloaded ages ago. Done some tutorials and for being honest i wasn't impressed by the slow gameplay but once in a match i must admit that it works for me.

    Especially space battles. On the ground the whole sluggishness of the gameplay is more of a problem. Though i have told by more experienced players that it's a low ranks thing and that at higher ranks things are more intense.

    Give it a try if you are into Gundam. Don't expect too much in terms of visual, it's not horrendous but that's truly not a triple A game.

    Started playing Uncharted 3 Remastered at random, and I'm generally enjoying myself, but is it just me or are the controls a little stiffer than they were in Uncharted 2 Remastered?

    Also, I feel like the female characters look less realistic than the male characters do, with Chloe and Elena looking worse than they did in Uncharted 2. And I'm not talking about their proportions, but their skin textures and hair models look like they are very low in detail compared to those of both versions of Nate and Sully, or even Charlie.

    Okay, I beat Uncharted 3 and while I really enjoyed it overall, I do start getting really annoyed whenever I try and think about the plot too hard, especially in the second half of the game, and ESPECIALLY especially with regards to the villains.

    Like, how does Nate and company keep randomly wandering into to the exact locations and people that he is trying to find despite having barely any idea where on the continent they are supposed to be? Why were those spider hordes located on three separate continents, but not in the end game? Why would Marlowe and Talbot have anything to do with a pirate, plus why does a career pirate not know how to secure things on his deck? Why did Marlowe start giving narration in the desert? What is the name of Marlowe's organization, and do they have official sanction from their government for their actions? Why do they even want the jar in the first place, considering what they already did to certain party members already? Why did Talbot suddenly stop being magic? Seriously though, what's the deal with all the spiders?

    Overall, after beating the Nathan Drake Collection, I feel bad that Uncharted: Golden Abyss wasn't part of it since I would easily put it as the second best Uncharted Game I ever played (still have 4 and LL to go), with the best shooting and climbing mechanics, the best collectibles, a Charlie-tier partner character that has an actual character arc and stakes in the actual plot, and the best villains in the series thus far (especially Dante).

    Andromeda was an okay game. Not a terrible one as some claimed, but it did fail to live up to the hype. It also didn't help the game was pushed onto a team known for doing DLCs, NOT full on games. And only had like a year and half or so to work on it. Shame no DLC was ever released.

    Problem with Andromeda is the state they released the game in.

    And honestly, they deserved every bit of heat for that cause that truly was a complete shame.

    But yeah, the game in itself is decent enough i guess. Now, after years of patches.

    FINALLY playing Witcher 3 in anticipation of Cyberpunk 2077 - thankfully the lore is not too difficult to follow and Geralt has a snarky comment for every occasion. Still very early days and I doubt I will even finish the main game - let alone the two add ons - before Cyberpunk hits in November, but at least I will have experienced a quality story and RPG in the meanwhile.

    Also toying with finally playing Prey and maybe Dishonored 2 in advance of whenever I get Deathloop for PS5, which is sounding amazing so far.

    I started Witcher III. Nice RPG, interesting lore and atmosphere. Also, for old time sake, i started Streets of Rage 4. It's like a refined version of Streets of Rage 2.

    Beat Uncharted 4, and while it was probably tied with (and maybe a bit ahead) Uncharted 2 for best game in the series, I can't help but feel that the rope mechanic, while an excellent addition to the series, wasn't properly integrated with the plot considering how many of the hazards, including a major at the end of the game, could have been instantly resolved by Nate remembering that he has a rope which he had used immediately before and immediately after said hazards. Also, I wish that stuff like the alternate models and rendering options opened up before beating the game, just so I could have played more of the game in cel-shaded mode.

    Now onto beating Lost Legacies so that I can say that I've finished the entire series.

    Picked up Diablo 3. Never played the series before but having a lot of fun so far. It reminds me a lot of Gauntlet with more content.
