I finally reached the iconic forklift section in Shenmue, had enough, read a story summary, pretended I finished it and started Shenmue 2, which seems to have some needed quality of life improvements. Hopefully enough to keep me in for the remainder.

 
 
 

So, what have you guys played in November and which was your favorite? I completely forgot to ask at the beginning of the month! Me, life didn't allow for much gaming, I only finished Detroit Become Human, which was cool despite the poor world building.

 
 
 

I splurged on the Steam sale and bought 10 games. And I was doing so well on the "not buying unnecessary games" front. But those sweet deals, man.

 
 
 

I finally spent the PSN store credits I've had lying in one of my accounts for over a year and got Red Dead 2, God of War, Spider Man and Uncharted Lost Legacy. Looking good.

 
 
 

I can't see the second wave of black Friday PlayStation deals in the list unless I search for the specific game. Odd. Anyone else having this issue?

 
 
 

I went into Shenmue completely blind, and it's not at all what I expected. I'm beginning to see why it's both a special game fondly remembered by many and at the same time a massive commercial failure with limited mass market appeal.

 
 
 

I have to look for sailors in a bar that only opens at night and there's no way whatsoever to skip time? Is this what 1999 felt like?

 
 
 

Finished Detroit: Become Human. Someone mentioned that it's a cool little sci-fi romp if you don't think too hard about it, which is how I felt. It strains your suspension of disbelief even more than Heavy Rain or Beyond, but still kept me invested.

 
 
 

Important question: how exactly is Shenmue pronounced?

 
 
 

I don't know what's more ridiculous, the third season of 13 reasons why or the fact I can't stop watching.

 
 
 

My first thought playing Detroit: Become Human: how come nobody has jobs because Androids are replacing everybody yet seemingly everyone can afford fancy personal droids? Maybe I'm getting too old for videogames!

 
 
 

I've been going through several lower priority backlog games and crossing them off the list after a couple hours, so far none compelled me to play to the end, but hey, at least I'm tackling the backlog!

 
 
 

I really wish Shadow of the Colossus didn't have a climbing timer.

 
 
 
 

Alright Xcom 2, let's do this. Any base building tips?

 
 
 

I thought Fear Effect Sedna was a turn based thing like Xcom. I wish it was, cause as it is, it's just awful.

 
 
 

I'm glad that, if nothing else, at least Blizzard kept Diablo Diablo and rejected proposals to "modernize" it such as ditching the isometric camera or going for Souls-like gameplay.

 
 
 

Didn't really feel Broken Age, didn't have the patience to give it more time to see if it gets better. Now... I think I'm going to give Mark of the Ninja another shot. Last time I got sidetracked by another game.

I've been on a walking simulator streak. Finished Batman Enemy Within, and now Life is Strange Before the Storm. Infuriating though Chloe may be, it was cool to see her relationship with Rachel, and I definitely intend to play LIS 2 eventually.

 
 
 

Yes Chloe, you should totally go meet a violent, murdering, on edge drug dealer in the middle of nowhere seemingly hoping he'll listen to reason and walk away. Good thing you're a videogame character and not a real person.

 
 
 

God I hope the average teenager isn't as stupid as the ones in Life is Strange Before the Storm.

 
 
 

I caught my dad cheating in LiS Before the Storm, so I'm just gonna express my teen anger by starting a wildfire, cause massive devastation and possibly kill a few people. Why not.

 
 
 

I never imagined the whole "Diablo 3 is too cartoony" outcry had resonated so much at blizzard. This time They really went all out with the the grimdark tone.

 
 
 

Finished Batman Enemy Within. Despite the Telltale trappings, it's an excellent Batman story. And it was cool to play it after watching the Joker, as both are Joker Origin stories, and quite good ones at that.
