Play The Last of Us Part 2. It's a game that will be ruminated over a decade from now. I mean, you're probably gonna hate it for "reasons", but it has to be experienced. It's one of "those games" that doesn't came along very often. So check your apprehension and jaded biases at the door, and play it (just do it!)

Or don't because the story is not good.

I'm still not settled on what I think about that story.

One thing I will give Tsushima credit for is the sound design. The wind, drum and flute music and the sound of a sword going through flesh. It's very satisfying and peaceful and sometimes violent.

It's really funny if you just watch them crawling along. I think they just keep going..
So that's the story. And what was the real lesson? Don't leave things in the fridge.

They go a good while before stopping yeah. Quite amusing if a tad twisted to just stand there.

So it's been established that Soapy Steve is a bath pro, and we should all aspire to be like Soapy Steve.

But that other stand out side mission got me to thinking. Are you guys a "baked bean" fan or a "refried bean" fan? For my particular tastes, I would go with baked beans. I mean refried beans are great, don't get me wrong, but they really only work with burritos for the most part. But with baked beans you have a wider world of culinary possibilities. So, baked beans it is for me. What would you guys go with? Type [1] for Baked Beans / Type [2] for Refried Beans.

I finished Persona 4 Golden a few weeks ago and made some more progress with Persona 5 (roughly 90 hours in).

My main focuses at the moment are all Falcom:

Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter - nearly at the end. I'm in the 'Finale' chapter so probably 5 or 6 hours left. Once that's done I'm debating whether to play Trails in the Sky the 3rd, which is a separate story, or jump straight into the new Geofront translation of the first game in the Crossbell arc, Trails from Zero (Zero no Kiseki). If I do the latter I may simul-play Trails of Cold Steel 1 and 2 as the Crossbell story and characters don't become really relevant to Cold Steel until Cold Steel 3, by all accounts.

Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana - started this early 2019 and was enjoying it. I was about halfway through chapter 2 when I something shiny came along and distracted me. Once the localisation of Ys IX: Monstrum Nox was announced I figured I should return to it. Picked up from where I left off and oh boy, I originally left it right at the point where the story was really about to take off. This game is a masterpiece. Fabulous combat and the pacing of the story is the best I've seen in an action RPG/adventure. I can't remember the last time I had this much fun in a game, if ever.

Blasting through Halo 3. The plot thickens as I finally catch up to Mr. Truth... and then even more shit hits the fan.

Those Hornet VTOLs were annoying. Largely because the control scheme is a bit messed up, and the description in the rebinding is the opposite of what it says it does (the "vehicle action 1" button that's described as controlling descending actually does the ascending. The descending is done by the "hover" button). Still, those Scarab fights have been epic. 4 of them downed so far, but not a single one was boring.

My one gripe are the terminals. After the pure epicness that were the cutscenes they unlocked in Halo 2A, this just seems really meh. And confusing.
I don't need an overall graphic overhaul, I think 3's visuals hold up nicely; but, man, it's be cool to have some more Blur cutscenes, lol

Man... the "Cortana" level is giving me major "System Shock 2- The Body of The Many" vibe. The Flood has become annoying again (worst Flood- centric level since The Library in Halo 1).

EDIT: Ok, and done. The last level was... alright. Fighting up the tower was so-so; the warthog escape was nice, but overall, it lacked the oomph.

"The Ark" and "The Covenant" back-to-back are probably peak Halo campaign moments for me. Reach had some moments that come close, though.

Picking up the "Dark Souls but Dead Space" game, Hellpoint next week, but in the meantime gonna check out that "Devolverland Expo" thingy. Then... probably try smth else before Hellpoint hits.

15 more days until HZD is out on PC.

So this whole No Man's Sky thing got a whole lot shorter.

Playing co-op with a mate, I found a Portal so he went through and I used the anomaly to teleport to him and see how much closer to the galaxy core we were.

Well, the planet we found the Portal on was 650,000ly away. The new one? 5k. We skipped over 645k light years.

Madness. Of course Portal meant he couldn't stick a base down but as I'd come from the anomaly, I could. Cheeky Base was born.

We are going to try something like this to cheese Permadeath, except he is more worried about playing it, so I am gonna just get a save where every so often I can make a base and if he dies I am the checkpoints.

My son is super pissed off today. Iím playing Ghost of Tsushima and it took him 2 days Iíd say to really pay attention to it but he demanded me play it at all hours of the day past few days. Now for 2 days Iíve let him play it while I supervise and he had a fucking ball on it. His mom made him go home today though and he knows Iím gonna make all kinds of progress in the week or more he is gone and he ainít happy bout it lol. There was a lot of teenage attitude as he was packing up.
