    I love all the original material.

    I still enjoyed this, ok I'd had a drink or two but we sat and decided we weren't going to nitpick and just go with it. Quite fed up with all the 'fan' backlash for projects like this, Star wars, Sandman etc. The source material is all still right there, if you don't like it, walk away.

    I'll keep watching, it can never be as bad as those godawful Hobbit movies.

    I enjoyed Stray, good length and great environments to traverse from a cats perspective.

    I want somewhere interesting to explore.

    Have finished.. The Forest. Stray. Elden Ring. Subnautica. Ghost of Tsushima (still have some dlc but want a change)
    RD2 annoys me (law system)

    Ideally I'd like more exploring and less combat.

    How is AC Odyssey for travelling about doing quests? Too much AC story? I went off AC ages back; beautiful environments but plagued with awful missions and no interaction with npcs and all that animus BS. The setting on Odyssey has me tempted as it's a long way from feudal Japan and the fantasy setting of Elden Ring.
    I expect there's none of the freedom to roam and interact with folk or rest, eat, hunt etc which I really like.

    I'll probably just finish up Ghost.

    Finished Horizon: Forbidden West yesterday.

    My opinion of this game is a bit sour. There's a lot of good stuff in this game but I think the games direction and design leaves a lot to be wanted.

    Alloy is an unlikable character. She's standoffish, dismissive of other people's help and doesn't have much of a sense of humor. The fact that she spends the whole game treating friends like a chore made me not want to play the story.

    I think the new system of dozens of weapons and armors that need to be upgraded with rare ressources ruins the fun of the combat. I spent most of the game playing with weapons that felt underpowered because I couldn't be arsed to grind hard robots for ressources that have a low drop chance.

    There's tons of abilities to upgrade but I never bothered to learn or use the dozens of abilities that the trees want you to unlock because none of it felt useful or intuitive.

    I think the Forbidden West has a ton of promise in the first ten hours but I don't think the game lives up to its potential.

    Next up Elden Ring.


    This has definitely put me off. I'm glad I chose Elden Ring when the two launched; I really enjoyed HZD, I don't want to spoil that experience with what appears to be mostly more of the same.

    Which seems weird considering how much I'm enjoying Elden Ring, when it's mostly all the previous DS games mashed into one, with extra bits if you want them. Maybe it's not more of the same that puts me off, just more of something I feel I'm done with.

    I finally got the virus.

    Dodged it for 2+ years at work, only to get it at home when the kids got it over Easter.

    I only had a sore throat for a day, but the fatigue was a thing for a few days - I've been sceptical about it but it was like the effect I get from antihistamines - heavy head and lethargy. I upped my coffee intake, because I managed to get two weeks off and I didn't want to waste it. The garden is looking great!

    I'm back to work now; I still have a slight cough and I'm def getting slightly out of breath at times.

    This game is enormous.

    I've hacked through the main story bosses right up to the last one, but there are still greyed out areas on the map.

    So I've left the final one, and gone back to explore further. Found some optional bosses, and a few challenging fights like the assassin in the evergaol - quickest boss so far, more like a sekiro fight.

    I'm in the Haligtree now, new place full of tree house platform buildings like the elvish parts in LotRs.

    I feel like I've finished the game story wise, but there are still loads of things I ran past early game to go back to, and places I haven't even set foot in yet.
