It was so simple and well done that it made it very enjoyable.
Yeah, it's only 5-8 hours, depending on how fast you want to play and do/don't explore/be a cat.

Company of Heroes 3 is fun. It's sadly much worse than the first two, but I'm still enjoying it

I'm playing the Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty demo right now before it launches Mar 1. Super hard but also super fun combat. The boss for the first level is surprisingly hard . . .

Age of Empires II actually works surprisingly well on the xbox controller. I’m quite enjoying going through the campaigns, probably won’t dabble too much with the online play though.

This game seems to check off a lot of boxes, but I always get nervous when they start talking about mobile play. Seems like you have to leave a lot out of a game to work on phones.

Free-to-play is the big red flag right off the bat, especially for an RPG. I'd wager it's going to be very grindy, but of course there will be a mountain of microtransactions to speed things up for you

Switch Preorders of Final Fantasy Remasters are up online (Play Asia, VGP, PNP, etc.)

Super pricey though.

I do not, PlayStation for life. Played the demo a bit more and itís alright. Feels like a wish dot com Sekiro knockoff more than anything. The screen is so overwhelmingly busy I donít even know what half the crap happening at any time means. Itís no Nioh 2 but it could be fun. It does continue the Team Ninja tradition of being hard for the sake of being hard as opposed to the FromSoftware tradition of being hard with a specific goal or playstyle in mind

I don't know. I finished both Nioh games without issue (found them medium hard at best) and could not finish Sekiro's end boss as to me it's by far the most difficult game I have ever played as I've never not finished a game that I wanted to complete until Sekiro. That game had a hint of unfairness in it that was unlike FromSoftware's other games.

Interesting, Iím the other way. FromSoftware games strike me as hard but with a specific style or technique to get past that difficulty while the Ninja games are hard but in a cheap way, almost like button mashing and luck is more necessary at times than a particular skill or move set memorization thing. Probably just a playstyle or preference thing.

Iíll still buy it cause thereís nothing else to play.

Worried given how their recent releases have been (overwatch grindy as hell, warcraft 3 being horrific, immortal being the ####ty phone cash sink, etc.) but will see how this game goes. Wonder that kind of microtransactions that they'll be forced to jam in here.

Yeah, on discount for a bit though I think it is still cheaper on Epic. Might also be nice to have on the steamdeck.

Surely mot the Warcraft 3 that came out in like 2002? That was the last great RTS!

Are you talking World of Warcraft 3 or something?

He means the Warcraft 3 remaster from a couple years ago that they completely botched.

Finished Dying Light 2 (at least the main story) and liked it quite a bit. Really enjoyed the running/parkour/movement and the story was cool. Liked how they rolled out your kit over time and made it feel fresh for longer. Still fell into the trap of too much of the same thing over and over as open world games can, but either I did enough to level up to match the story fine or it scales with you so I didn't feel the need to grind anything.

I didn't get a decent bow until very far into the game so really didn't feel like it fit my playstyle and the parkour combat did eventually get stale but it was pretty neat for a while.

Worth a play if you like open world games and want something different and want some running and climbing.

The worst part of it was the head bob.. even though I turned it off in the menus, it still triggered my vertigo like no other game I've played has, most of the time I had to play in small chunks.
