What VIDEO GAME(s) have you been playing?
Signed up for Xbox Game Pass for a whole $1 so I could try a few things, most notably The Outer Worlds. I figured I'd give it a few hours, get annoyed with typical WRPG issues, and move on. It ended up eating most of my weekend. This game is fucking fantastic. It actually delivers on everything promised without a single bit of Bethesda jank ruining the experience. I've run into exactly one bug - a status effect not going away - and it was instantly resolved by loading a save.
The most amazing thing this has managed to do besides actually function mechanically is have characters that are worth caring about. I definitely have favorite companions, but they're all likable and (with the exception of the cleaning robot) have quest lines that flesh them out really nicely. This is the promised land of WRPGS, the real fucking deal. Play it if you can.
Signed up for Xbox ultimate game pass for 3 months since it was only $1. I started Outer Worlds on the xbox and downloaded Space Hulk Tactics on PC but haven't loaded it up yet.
Did my first workout in Ring Fit Adventure on the Switch. This was quite an aerobic workout. We will see how I feel tomorrow. I mainly got it to motivate the kids to move around more, hopefully they use it. I can confirm that it is a legit exercise device / game.
I started Outer Wilds, and I'm not sure how much I'll play this one... I don't know that I want to play Lunar Lander 2019 over and over.
I beat Death's Gambit. Good fun, solid theming, solid 2d souls combat that wasn't too hard nor the game padded to be too long.
One planet is covered in water, and these giant storms throw you INTO SPACE and then drop you back down. It's not pleasant.
