Oh, I already know that one. I managed to purchase a house in Goblet, by paying the bare necessities to do it. Bought a cruddy piece of land for like 2.4m (with building supplies).

I pretty much have to start crafting to get things cheaper, because holy crap are those prices outrageous.

And yeah, all the land on all the servers is currently bought up. Hence why they are trying to get more land for everyone. I'm surprised though that they are thinking of adding housing in Ishgard and Ala Mihgo. That might be more of a 5.0 thing than being released in 4.2 or 4.3.

Also thinking that 5.0 will be setting the stage for 6.0 Garlemald, since Rabanastre deals with that. We'll also be on the western side of Ilsabard and dealing with Dalmasca and the like.

I just beat Bioshock 2.

Now I'm going to start playing Shadow of War on PS4.

Been playing the crap out of the new Everybody's Golf game, based off the Hot Shots Deluxe engine. Just a blast to play and 'easy' in a sense (Serious Mode definitely changes this though) but I love that the ability to increase club abilities (e.g. distance, touch on the green, etc.) is completely reliant on your ability with the club and the meters in general.

Shadow of War so far reminds me exactly of Shadow of Mordor. I am okay with this.

I'm play through Rare Replay on the Xbox and the two Killer Instinct arcade games. I liked the KI series and I wanted to play it again for nostalgia.

I beat Xenoverse 2 like 10 levels ago but I still can't beat the Xenoverse 1 missions. I don't think I'm to the last one yet but I can't beat the one where you fight like 6 powered up guys. It's frustrating because I really want to just finish that and move on because I'm done with this game and don't care about the extra ending but I need to finish Xenoverse 1 damnit.

Picked this up for $20 in a BF sale and I like it so far.  It just seems like a happy-ass game

I also got the new Assassin's Creed.  It kind of throws you right into things without much background or setup which makes the first hour or so weird.  It definitely feels like they played a whole bunch of the Witcher 3 before working on this because it definitely feels like that game.

I am finally, FINALLY done with Xenoverse 2, so now I'm working on Mario + Rabbids Kingdome Battle and I just started Binding of Isaac Afterbirth. That game is going to kick my ass so hard so many times.

I love the controls. Just very intuitive and fun to me (until you unlock everything and break the game, but so it goes). The story falls apart like no other, so I can absolutely understand why people would just tune out. But for me if MGS3 had that engine it'd likely be my favorite game ever. All personal opinion, of course.

I just beat the main quest of Shadow of War. Apparently there's a lot more to do after the main quest. I'm such a story driven gamer that I lose interest in a game after the main quest.

Donkey Kong Country 1 & 2

I've been hooked on various pinball tables in Pinball Arcade the last few weeks. But I finally picked up No Man's Sky so I plan to start that soon. I also picked up Mass Effect Andromeda, which I am not excited at all to play but I'm curious to see how bad it is.

COD WW2 might literally be the worst COD game I've played. The controls are loose as shit even with custom settings, hit detection is shit (makes GTA look incredible by comparison), and even the campaign is generic.

5/10, at least it's pretty.

The more I get into AC: Origins, the more I'm liking it.  Bayek is basically an Egyptian Witcher without the magic ability and the game is structured unlike any AC game they've done (but similar to said Witcher games).  The modern day stuff is about as superfluous as it gets, though.  They could have cut that stuff out entirely and it wouldn't change the game at all.

As you all know I am not a fan of online gaming. I'm a curmudgeon that wants to play alone.

However the replayability of FPS and fighting games is terrible compared to completion time and such versus something like Skyrim or Fallout.

So I don't really play those games unless it's something with a story I like such as Bioshock or Gears.

But for Christmas I got Tekken 7 and my son got an XBox with CoD Black Ops 3 and Infinite Warfare.

I decided to give online Tekken a try. I won my first match. Awesome. Then I gave it another try. Bad idea. I was dominated 3 straight in the next two matches. In one I ended up getting juggled in the air nearly the whole match.

Then I decided to try to play CoD Infinite Warfare in my son's room while he built legos. I played a free for all death match. I got one kill and then died 28 times most of them from getting shot in the back.
I watched RAW. I thought it sucked. The usual problems and such.

A co-worker is putting together a Rasberry Pi build for me.  For now probably I am just going with the SNES/NES games build. Might convert to N64 in the future.   I am getting it for nostalgia but also to try and ween my oldest daughter off of tablet games and onto console stuff.  She needs a little bit more difficulty and challenge outside of the infinite runner games.

It's crazy how she knows Sonic & Mario more for their cartoons then the games. (I guess it isn't too crazy given her age, but still)

Fate/Grand Order. A gatcha game that I'm strangely enjoying. Probably because the story is surprisingly interesting and fun. That is if you can get over the magibabble. And the fact that the grind is heavy. Probably more enjoying it just because I love the Fate/ multiverse.

After the disappointment of COD WW2, I ordered Battlefield 4, due in any day now. To prep, I've been hopping between Blacklight Retribution and Planetside 2. It's pretty sad that a pair of indie freemium games are more competent shooters than a top-selling AAA title, but I'm hoping BF4 will give me that hectic-but-tactical feel I'm looking for.

Is it a RetroPie build? If so, I believe it should support N64 games either way. :)

Oh cool. I've had for a while but just now am messing with it (less-than-stellar health problems made me want something I could basically play with minimal movement). I just have no idea if I've technically beaten the game. Steady food, steady materials, everything going perfectly. I just feel like I'm waiting on natural disasters. It's an awesome little game, just gets very repetitive. Fucking cool one guy did it.

Yeah, it is pretty amazing that this guy did it all by himself. I'm not sure if now he's got a team but the game was released by himself, which means it was a passion project and pretty amazing that he did it. I think you might be scott-free though if you've successfully keeping things up. The only disaster I think in the game the last time my dad played it was winter itself and I think wolves, so yeah. You might've won the game if you keep thriving. Though I think the challenge from there is making the colony much bigger and trying to make it as big as possible.

As for myself I'm trying to get Franchise Hockey Manager 4 to work right. The guys who work on OOTP created it. Just having a rough time getting it to work all the time. I'm thinking though it is something on my end, since I seem to be having a lot of issues on my end (read only on everything being one of them). Quite a fun little sim. I managed to get a full season done as GM of Spokane Chiefs before expanding the NHL for a Kansas team. Then crashing a plenty. :(

It is a fun game, though I would say it isn't as polished as OOTP is. Though OOTP is like years of work in it.

Skip Andromeda and get into Horizon.  You'll be better for it (and I'm someone who didn't hate the game as much as most, but I'm not planning to finish it).

I'm still exploring around AC: Origins.  That's just a pretty world to ride around in.

Oh god why did I ignore this beast for so long. Matches are won or lost via strategy over cheap kills. My only gripe so far is the slooooowwwww grind as a noob.

I'm wrapping up Yakuza Kiwami.  The story isn't nearly as good as Yakuza 0's and there isn't as much side stuff to do, but this is basically a gussied-up version of a 10 year old game that was first in a series so that's expected.  The Majima fights have some entertaining setups at least.
