After 200 hours playing Fallout 4. it's time to quit. Bought the season pass for 20$, couldnt finished Far harbor cause of the bug in SIMA computer. So I started Nuka World, but now I have to do raiders settlements... I hate settlements, so I quit loll

Started Batman Arkham knight, and wow what a game

Got the Diablo 3 "Ultimate Evil Edition" and am just immersed in it.  So much more content.

Pretty amazing game eh?   I like the world that they crafted as well.  Some pretty over-the-top, fantastic designs.  What character/class are you playing as?

I leveled to 70 plus like 79 paragon levels as a Sorceress, then started a Demon Hunter and I have her up to 50.  When I had the Ps3 version I leveled a Barbarian and a Monk.

Just downloaded the "Afterbirth" DLC to my PS4 copy of The Binding of Isaac Rebirth.  Good lord this game just gets better all the time.  I had 100% my Rebirth file a year ago and picking it back up tonight.  Makes me want to get a Nintendo Switch so I can play Isaac Afterbirth on it anywhere.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Playing this as well, pretty great so far... The question is poorly implemented though which annoys me, they should allow multiple quests to be tracked at all times and they should show where to go on the minimap as the game is huge and its easy to get lost!

I've played a bit of it, and alas, it appears the slimy tendrils of microtransactions finally got a hold of the series, as the entire leveling system appears to exist largely so you have to visit the in-game store that takes a lot of a currency you can get for real money, and thus turning the series into a pure skinner box.  Shame, really.

Well, let me know what game you get so I can shit on it in a snide tone of voice.

Forgive me, I didn't mean to rain on your gift.  I have a sheer hatred of what the Triple-A industry is doing to games these days with microtransactions and lootboxing, and I sometimes go off on it where I shouldn't.  Enjoy the game.

I haven't seen any of that so far.  Sure, there's a store you can go to but I have just ignored it like I always do with anything multiplayer.  Like when everyone complained about the Diablo 3 marketplace and I don't even know what they were talking about because I never even looked at it.

So far AC:O is just gorgeous and fun.  They added some looting and leveling mechanics like an RPG but that's fine with me.  It looks from the interface like they were playing a lot of Destiny.  Though actually the RPG elements here are a bit crunchier than they are in Destiny.

The Diablo 3 Marketplace started out screwing up servers, and was also a bold-faced attempt at squeezing money out of players.  The in-game store in AC:O, along with any game that you pay for that includes microtransactions for stuff you used to be able to just get in the game, are even more bold faced and twice as unacceptable, as they've slowly rotted the mainstream games from the inside and have started devolving them into blatant cash grabs (Shadow of War and Star Wars Battlefront 2 are far more egregious, and any game with loot boxes for that matter).  AC:O certainly isn't the worst offender, but I found that a lot of the game was structured around it, even if it can be ignored, and that saddens the hell out of me.  Still, if you can ignore all that and just play, more power to you.

Just finished up Salt and Sanctuary and Grow Up.  Salt and Sanctuary is essentially a 2D Dark Souls.  Grow Up plays almost the same as its predecessor, Grow Home, only with a small spherical planet this time.  I'm going to start playing Uncharted: The Lost Legacy tomorrow.  I have high hopes for it, given how much I've enjoyed all the other Uncharted games.

Honestly I never even notice it.  It's just a tab on the menu screen I never use.  And in Diablo I never even saw the marketplace everyone was on about.  I wouldn't even know how to find it.
