    Mar 30th, 2022 at 08:18:08     -    Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (XBX X/S)

    Just finished today. The story and characters are amazing. The gameplay isn't anything too special, but it is competent enough to remain fun through the 15 hours or so the game will take to complete. The character and environmental art are also very good.

    Forza 7 is great. Its a top tier racing game. The controls are tight and the frame rate is solid. Unfortunately I won't be completing the game all the way. The gameplay just gets too grindy to get to the super fast cars. I just don't have the time to focus on only that game.

    Jul 30th, 2021 at 07:41:44     -    Control (XBONE)

    Remedy Entertainment is one of my favorite game developers in the world. From Allen Wake, to Quantum Break (unintentional rhyme) their games are always unique and fun. They stand out a lot among other big budget single player games. They hay have a style that they put into every game they make. Sam Lake writes complex and interesting narratives for all of their games. I'd say he's basically the Christopher Nolan of the video games industry. Control has all of these things. One could even say they are all at their best in the game.

    There are so many things that I like about Control. The graphics and art style are top notch, the gameplay/combat is endlessly fun, and the story had me locked in. There are a number of fun, likable, diverse characters. The puzzles are simple, but engaging. There really isn't much negative I can say about the game.

    The side quest design is great. I never really found myself doing the same thing twice. The world is semi-open and feels like a 3D metroid-vania. There are all kinds of areas to explore and secrets to find.

    My biggest gripe with Control is some of the enemy design isn't very strong. There are a couple of enemies that just aren't as fun to fight. Specifically the suicide enemies who explode when the get close to the player, and the rocket troopers who don't have a lot of health, but always seem to sneak up in the middle of big battles to launch heavy damage dealing rockets at the player. I found myself more frustrated than enjoying fighting them. However, this frustration did fade as the game went on and I got stronger.

    Everyone should play this game. It's the best game that Remedy has made. It's on gamepass, so anyone with an Xbox or gaming PC has not excuse for not playing it!

    Jul 22nd, 2021 at 14:40:02     -    Greedfall (XBONE)

    I want to finish Greedfall. I want to complete it. It has so many good ideas and I've enjoyed my time with it! Unfortunately it just keeps going. I've put just over 30 hours in and I feel like at this point the game isn't giving me anything new. I just have too many games to play to keep grinding through the game's uninteresting story and basic gameplay.

    Its the perfect game to show off everything that 2000s western RPGs had. They had a diverse group of companions, action packed combat, and a new world to explore. If this game had come out in 2008 and you told me Bioware had made it I would fully believe you. It does all of that very well. Unfortunately the game doesn't really add anything new to that. I would say the most unique aspect is the customization that is available to the player. Everything is cosmetic too which really makes the player character feel unique.

    The graphics are pretty good. Considering the game had a budget of a few million dollars and it was made by 40-60 people is incredible. It feels like a AAA and a AA experience at the same time. A AA.5 if you will...

    Maybe I'll come back to it and finish it someday, but at this point I'm done.
