Pour one out for my Leon Belmont build on Skyrim Special Edition, who passed away last night.

He died as he lived: neck deep in vampires (ha), killing them one by one. I decided it was a fitting end for a guy with a murder-boner for vampires, so that’s that. The king of vampire slaying is dead.

Fortunately, his daughter, Alessia Laguardia has taken up his whip, and gone into the Monster Hunting business. The whip ain’t what it used to be (I actually toned down the power of the enchantments by half to simulate wear and tear), but there’s still no finer implement for killing vampires, werewolves, and other nocturnal nasties this side of Artaeum. Long live the Queen.

At some point I will get pics of her up on Tumblr. But she looks BADASS.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

personally I've never liked S&K or Sonic CD, but people rave about them.

S&K is actually part 2 of Sonic 3. I don't know why but the developers broke the game up into two parts before launch.

I “beat” Sonic Mania yesterday (missing most of the chaos emeralds etc) and I’m going to keep playing it but I went ahead and got a copy of Sonic 2 on Steam. Going to give that a shot soon.

Hang on. Knuckles was an add on to 2 and 3 with the S&K cart. But if you put the cart in by itself, S&K is its own game.

I know. But if you read up on the development history of the two titles you will find that they were planned originally as one game.

Right okay. Maybe it's me but I still feel like S&K and CD feel more similar.

Sonic 3 feels like a cross between 1/2 to me.

Mania has borrowed elements but feels more like its own game to me.

The Doom Eternal reveal got me all hyped up, so I had to play the last one all over again. I seriously can't wait for Eternal. It's gonna be such a loooooong wait too...  :'(

Been on and off on Arkham Knight lately...it just feels so different from the rest of the Arkham games, and not in a good way. Really not a fan of the AR challenges that involve racing and vehicular combat. I just really don't like the Batmobile that much in this game. Still not sure if I want to go for the Knightfall ending, or just watch it on youtube.

I LOVED Arkham Asylum and City, easily in my top 5 favorite games of last console gen... but similarly, I could not get into Arkham Knight. There are several reasons, but the batmobile really negatively impacted the whole experience for me. There was simply too much of it required to get through the game, and I'm just not the biggest fan of driving or car combat games. There was also no metroid-esque feeling of player progression like in the first to Batman games either. I loved the first two games so much that I was certain I would love Knight as well, but somehow they dropped the ball with that game.

Honestly, I liked Arkham Origins.

I like that it felt like an expansion pack to City (because it basically was) that explored some earlier events and opened up the scope of the map so you could really explore Gotham City more with Arkham City's incredible fluidity. Getting to go visit the COMPLETE overworld map of Arkham City before it got turned into a Prison Shantytown was just icing on the cake.

And Troy Baker did one MEAN Mark Hamill impression. Kudos.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

I still haven't played that. I'll probably try to pick it up next time I'm in the Batman mood.

My bro was disappointed with Arkham Origins. But mainly from the story's perspective. Batman was rude to Alfred in his speaking lines which was never the case in any of the whole of the history of Batman. They've never had that kind of relationship, especially when you consider that after the murder Alfred raised Bruce himself. But I guess that's what happens when you outsource a game to a different company and they want to do their own thing with it  :P

It's also Batman's first real instance of the shit hitting the fan in what would later prove to be a typical Batman way. Right now he's not used to it and without the experience he has by the time of Asylum, I think he's actually somewhat emotionally compromised, similar to "first day on the job jitters". He's dealt with gangsters like Black Mask before. He's dealt with Assassins before, so that all is stuff he can easily scale to -- that's all variations on a theme for him... but Joker presents him with something wholly new and traumatizingly evil, and it causes him to honestly lose his grip on his composure a bit.

At least that's how I rationalized it.

I loooooved Origins. I kind of hated Bruce being a dick to Alfred too, but the combat in the game was so fun. Not sure if they did something different in that game, or if it was just from the experience I had playing the previous two, but the combat really clicked with me for some reason.

Finally finished Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. That took a while. I have to say I'm pleased with the game and what it was trying to do. However there were far more bugs in this title then in AS Origins. The cut-scenes felt rushed in this one, as if Obisoft was trying to save on space for the rest of the game. It wouldn't have killed them to flesh things out a bit more. Also trying to find clues to the whereabouts of all the cultists did reach a point where an internet walk-through was definitely required. all-in-all, this isn't a bad game to be sure. it just needs to be fleshed out more in terms of bugs and story. That and a final sequence with Layla in the modern-day sequences would have been nice as well just to help round things off.

Playing Dragon Quest XI, i have 100 hours of game play and i still haven't seen the true ending. One of the best Dragon Quest games in the series for me, with many plot twists and extra things to discover!!
