    It's been a while since I posted here. I just moved from Southern California to Washington about 6 weeks ago and have been settling in slowly. Got my gaming room finally all set up and upgraded my PC and bought a new TV and I managed to get the exact setup I want. I managed to finish Metro Exodus which was pretty good, but definitely had a few major flaws that kept it from being as good as Last Light.

    Even though the rain wasn’t even that bad this year.

    I moved here the day we got the first heavy snowfall. Not my first time experiencing snow as I grew up in Wyoming and it gets way worse there, but it definitely made the move tough. We had a few days of just sitting in a completely empty apartment because the entire area shut down.

    I finished up Wolfenstein: The New Order last week. It was a decent shooter with a different story for sure. As someone who used to play the PC original way back when, it was a fun nostalgia trip.

    Xbox One
    Bioshock - 8.0
    Bioshock 2 - 8.5
    The Evil Within - 6.0
    Bioshock Infinite - 9.0
    — Burial at Sea DLC - 9.0
    Crackdown 3 - 8.5
    Quantum Break - 9.5
    Wolfenstein: The New Order - 9.0

    I'm surprised you like Quantum Break that much, I thought it was rather dull and repetitive and the story had so many plot holes it was a confusing mess. Sad it didn't' turn out so well, plus it ran like garbage on PC. I personally gave it a 7/10 when I reviewed it on my site.

    I’m a sucker for time travel stuff and I was really into the graphics and mid chapter episodes. I just got really into it. I played on Xbox and it ran pretty smooth. I do agree with you about plot holes though.

    PS4:

    -Subnautica - 9 / 10
    -Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps DLC (The Heist, Turf Wars and Silver Lining) - 8.5 / 10
    -Resident Evil 2 - 9 / 10
    -Far Cry: New Dawn - 7.5 / 10
    -Devil May Cry 5 - 8 / 10
    -Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - 8.5 / 10

    I finally finished Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

    I enjoy From Software games such as the Dark Souls trilogy and Bloodborne, and while they are all difficult and challenging games, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is in my opinion, the hardest.

    I enjoyed most aspects of this game but it didn't quite feel as polished as Bloodborne or Dark Souls III. The combat is fast and punishing, really rewarding players who can achieve parry and deflection, which despite finishing the game, I certainly did not master these techniques.

    My biggest gripes of the game is that at times, the combat felt a little too unfair. An enemy thrusts their sword at me, I jump away, yet somehow take full, lethal damage. The hit box of Sekiro feels inaccurate and this did frustrate me, especially when I spent four hours over one day trying to beat the final boss.

    I didn't encounter any bugs, but in a Soulsborne fashion, the camera can become intensely uncooperative (especially in certain fights when you've got the camera locked onto the enemy) and sometimes, I would lose track of my surroundings and get stuck on a piece of the environment, leading to my demise.

    I'm glad I finished Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and I'm glad to have played and finished another entry to the Soulsborne style catalogue but for now... I don't think I'll be playing this game again any time soon.
