Cyberpunk 2077 done!... Just kidding just Act 1. Holy shit here we go

 
 

I'm redoing the Warehouse fight on Cyberpunk's The Pickup mission because I fucked up the criteria and Stout won't show up. Also, I'm already 20hrs in and I'm barely halfway the first act what

 
 

MH Rise Good News: Great Sword True Charged Slash is now canon! MH Ride Bad News: I can't do Aerial Switch Axe anymore and I'm stuck with the MHW variant :(

 
 

On the other hand, to all the ppl already qposting their first finished games of 2021 - holy shit are you on a pledge drive we're only a few days in

 
 

My MH group got a clear in MH Rise with all monsters (Izuchi, Rathalos, Mizutsune) defeated! This is shaping up to be the best of tge series yet!

 
 

I've only started logging my finished games at the start of the lockdown since I kinda knew I'll be having all this extra time for gaming. 26 games (plus a couple outside the lockdown like Pokemon Sword) inspired me to count again this 2021


 
 

Happy New Year! I wish you less pandemic and more next gen consoles and Silksong and SMTV and MH Rise

 
 

Merry Christmas from the GMT +8 world!

 
 

Wasteland 3 finally finished, holy shit. No more crashes! Had the pieces ready for the November Reigns ending but I didn't like the trade-off so I went for the regular "good" ending. In the end, I'm super glad I stuck with it despite the instability.

 
 

A major retailer has announced the Series X here and it doesn'r require any of those preorder bullshit!... But they jacked up the price. So my options are a fairly priced PS5 that you can't find anywhere and a $700 XSX. Lol.

 
 

The retailer just called - I didn't make the cut despite having already paid for the PS5 and I'll be getting a refund? You know the saying where it's better to have loved and lost than never have loved at all? Well, not this instance

 
 

I got a PS5! My wife and I were steering for machines and one of them got one within 2 minutes! They just announced though that they got more than they could chew and might be dropping off some of those orders so I gotta wait in 1hr for the confirmation

 
 

In about 45 minutes, online preorders are gonna be up around here for a whopping total of 5 minutes. Wish me luck.

 
 

Props to Chris for trying that greeting in Podtoid Ep 466 - it was a nice surprise! PROTIP: that language has mostly hard vowels so "a" in "bark", "e" in "speck", "i" in "feet" (long e), "o" in "oh" but with less "w" sound and "u" in "boo" (long o)

 
 

In the other side of the Pacific, retailers have announced the PS5 release date at Dec 11, about a month late with a retail price of ~$580, all things considered (shipping/duties/etc)... not bad, I have a few more weeks to mull between this and the XSX

 
 

Ugh, can't decide between an Anbernic 350P (cheaper, has HDMI out) vs 351P (newer, partial support for PSP/DC/N64). Right now it's down to deciding between being able to play it on a TV or having more emulated consoles

 
 

Cmon XSX (and soon, PS5) preorder...-ers. Gimme the lowdown on those sweet hauls and help a guy here pick one for the holidays (I'll get the other in a couple of months, enough time for my wife to not hit me if I got them both too soon)

 
 

Looks like a bunch of people had their birthdays recently - have a good one!

 
 

Wow, WL3 has some unexplained mechanics that would have helped me in some of these fights greatly had I known them earlier - things like initiative roll, the fact that initiatives reset after a mid-combat convo (!!!) and how great trick shot actually is!

 
 

Wasteland 3 is a blast - but oh my god, I am moving at a glacial pace. Some brick wall fights are actually my doing (San Luxe Apartment fight) but paired with long load times and a FUCKING ATROCIOUS crash rate it can be excruciating.

 
 

After a week of just pure focusing on Hades, it's time to go out for the other games! So I got... FF8 Remastered?

 
 

Hades True Ending achieved! It was a hell of a week but the credits finally rolled. It is a really fun game worth full price and then some. P.S. get Aspect of Hesta for Bow, then roll for Artemis ;)

 
 

Done in 2 sittings! Granted, this was a rush to 60 stars then straight to the final level. Now to mop up the other half of the stars (then a break before I do Luigi). Just an excuse to say I fucking love Super Mario Galaxy


 
 

Krieg DLC is out ye- aaand it's 4am

 
 

I'll get back to you about that Galaxy 2, but Super Mario Galaxy whoohoo!

 
 

Yo BlondeBass! I just watched your game jam showcase where you play my woefully undercooked game. This spark of motivation that keeps going away because I kept getting distracted... seeing someone play it just made it grow 10 times its size. Thank you

 
 

Holy shit! I almost missed the game jam! I capped the game off unfinished and uploaded it... Btw it's 4am here lol

 
 

Seeing the Eiyuden Kickstarter at 4am is a bad idea

 
 

TLOU2 done just in time for GOT of the non-Lannister kind. They did fumble the pacing in the end - they should have wrapped it up at a certain culminating point and added a single narrative chapter instead of adding multiple with more encounters.

 
 

Very busy in both life and gaming!... But the most important update is I managed to get married 2 weeks ago despite the global situation. Settled in our new condo unit (no decent net yet), just finished TLOU:R so I can transition to the sequel. Huzzah
