    I got Far Cry 5, and I've basically been playing it nonstop.
    Honestly it's easily the best Far Cry game, and definitely feels the most organic out of all of them. I also love how brutal the difficulty is right off the bat (at least on Hard) since the other games had a serious lack of enemy variety.
    Also getting rid of the crafting system and replacing it with perks is an absolutely welcome change. Sure it's way slower to get all the holsters and max health, but totally worth it.

    So far in Far Cry 5 I’ve taken out Jacob and John and am working through Faith’s region. I think John is the better antagonist over Jacob, however Jacob’s region was a lot more fun I thought. I do like how each region has its own unique characteristics, like in John’s region since he is more religious than Jacob there always Peggie gospels singing over the radios, and Jacob has hunters with wolf pets throughout.

    More people than I thought got Far Cry 5...thought it would be a bit of a flop! Actually good to hear it isn't.

    I'm gonna start a Devil May Cry 2 run tonight. Rather excited.

    Started DMC2, already bored so might take a break from DMC.

    I bought the Burnout Paradise Remaster on a whim - and am fucking loving it!

    I'm close to the end of Divinity 2 with my party. It's been a wild ride, and it's definitely one of the best RPGs I've ever played. It might even be the best. I'm also writing a feature about how good it is, which will go live next week.

    I read that Divinity 2 is heading to the PS4 and X Box One. It's pretty exciting to see new players getting the chance to play the game.

    I've been playing PUBG with the fellas. Ni no Kuni 2, modded Fallout 4, and some various other games solo.

    I'm playing God of War for review and it's great. Paul talking about Divinity has got me itching to go back and beat both of those games. The next month or so is looking slim for new releases so I'm hoping to start clearing out some backlog after God of War.

    I'm occasionally playing Far Cry 5 on co-op mode with my friend as well as my brother. In the meantime, I've started playing Mad Max again, as it's free on PS Plus.

    Waiting for God of War. Looks good.

    Okay, here's something interesting for all you Far Cry 5ers.
    The Arcade posters around the map put you into special singleplayer maps that are really, really good. I did one that was a spooky maze, and it was great.

    Still working my way through Persona 5. I'm almost 70 hours in now, and just entered October in game time. I have so much yet to do but feel like I'm running out of time!

    I'm probably going to get God of War when it comes out next week. I've never really been a fan of the series (I only tried to play the first, original game and despite it being similar to Devil May Cry, which I enjoy, I just couldn't get into God of War) but apparently it's getting incredibly positive reviews and you don't need to play/know the previous games to get into this one. The "reboot" of its overall game play style is what many claim that the series needed and it looks like it's paid off.

    Until then, I guess I'll play either Mad Max or some Far Cry 5 co-op.

    Here's an old GR Strips we did when God of War was first revealed.

    I find myself whistling the Far Cry 5 theme randomly.
