Last Week’s Gaming – April 6th, 2020

Animal Crossing First Night

I thought I did a lot of gaming last week. Turns out not so much. I did catch some early warning signs though.

On the whole though, I haven’t played a lot. Not for lack of want or ability – I could have played more with Alpal and/or Rabbit. Reality kicked in with how easily I slipped back into bad work/life habits though.

I roll out of bed in the morning and start work. Maybe 10 minutes between getting out of bed and hitting work mode. This is normal, and happens about 5:30 am. But after essentials are relegated, prioritised or completed, I then used to get an hour’s drive to work to reset. Without the drive, I can sleep in until 6:30 🙂

The work day continues until tasks are done (with interruptions and new tasks added, as is always the way isn’t it?), about 5ish when I would normally get home (not normally end the day – normally get home), or until I mentally just can’t anymore.

It’s the last one that ends my day lately.

This has led to 3 weeks of pushing 12 hour+ days again. I don’t like what those days do to me.

Because I have been working from home, I lose things like the forced ‘downtime’ of my hour long commute each way. While people often complain about commuting, for me this time is essential to be able to walk in the door without worrying about work. If I come home and have to continue to work, it is truly important and the exception, not the norm.

Why am I going on about all this? I thought I got a lot of gaming in because I used a lot of a small amount of ‘me’ time playing games. This changed late Saturday, when I basically got to spend the rest of the weekend on the couch with Rabbit watching TV and just enjoying each others company.

While you are staying at home for this extended period, don’t forget to set your routines and stick to them! It is easier to burn yourself out at home where you can’t get away from work/stress/yourself/etc. I know the traps and signs, and I still let myself get trapped again!

I took a ‘me’ day a couple of weeks ago that I still worked for about 5 hours. Doesn’t sound like much, but it was enough to make the day worthless for recovery purposes.

Take a ‘me’ day every week, but truly take one. Look after yourselves, and don’t burn yourselves out!

That’s enough of the deep and meaningful stuff – what did I get to play last week!

Potion Explosion – Android

Here is a perfect example of how you can lose track of time. I thought last week I set myself a challenge to pick different potions and professors. It was coming up to 3! It was two weeks ago today I set a challenge to change up my ‘normal’ play combinations.

I used to beat the AI fairly often, and fairly handily. Changing the potions and professors alters the game in deeper ways than people realise, and forces you to find new combinations.

Spoiler alert – I didn’t pick new potions. Or professors. I only got in two games. But they were the games I needed. Picking up Potion Explosion just felt right while sitting on the couch.

I don’t think I will ever feel tired of it. And I just realised I never formally reviewed it! That will need to be fixed soon.

Potion Explosion
I have played enough recently to get back into the swing. This is why I need to change up my potions!

Control – PS4

Control is an absolutely insane game. Not the longest game out there, replay value started to wane even in my short time with it.  The Foundation expansion came out just as I finished the main game, and kept asking me to play it when I was chasing the Platinum.

If you like Twin Peaks, Dune and weird story plots and turn of that nature, you will probably enjoy Control. Mass appeal wise, I think the problem is not many people do enjoy those paranormal/doubt your senses type stories, especially in what looks like a third person shooter.

My review of Control is coming, and is a lot better (and a lot different) than you probably think. If you see it on sale at the moment, you could do a lot worse than picking up Control.

Control Service Weapon
One of the less weird things about Control is that your gun changes shape. Itself.

Resident Evil 3 – PS4

Oh you knew this was coming. I played my first bit Friday night, replayed that section and a little more with Rabbit, and happily called it a night.

Then I just couldn’t get back into it come Saturday. This was actually one of my first wake up calls that I was pushing myself too hard – I just couldn’t pick up the controller.

After a proper day of rest, I played quite a bit more curled up next to Rabbit last night 🙂 This game is great. I am having fun exploring, and kicking myself for moving that little too far or rushing through a section without fully exploring. Rabbit is enjoying watching, and jumping alongside me when new (and not so new) enemies appear.

This will probably be ready for me to properly review soon. Resident Evil games tend to be on the shorter side, but you play through them multiple times. Until then, an hour a night isn’t too much, and I can calm down with the next game 😉

Resident Evil 3
You can see my video of Resident Evil 3 and my first impressions. The Nemesis doesn't muck around!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Switch

After hearing about everyone going on about Animal Crossing for years, I finally took the plunge.

In my great wisdom, I took the plunge at about 11:15 pm, Sunday night. This may have been a mistake, as I was playing to close to 1 am! So yes, technically, I was playing Animal Crossing this week instead of last week, but I am sure it counts :p

I have only just started, so I can’t really say too much about it. It was relaxing weeding what sections of the island I could get to. I have started fishing and catching bugs. Blathers is on his way, or at least I set up his tent.

If you don’t know Animal Crossing, most of what I just said makes no sense why it would be fun. But somehow, it is. It just works, and in the best possible way.

I have decided this week, Animal Crossing New Horizons is going to be my lunchtime downtime break, so expect to hear a lot more about this one. 🙂

Animal Crossing First Task Complete
Yes, people are days ahead of me. But that's not really the point of Animal Crossing.

What about you?  I hope you got some great games in.  Or are you looking forward to a new one?  Let me know!  Shout out on Facebook or @JohnHQLD me on Twitter!

Until tomorrow,

Last Week’s Gaming – March 30th, 2020

Tokaido

Finally, back to a Board Game heavy week!

It’s been a week. Last week was my second week of working from home, with more to come. Getting into a rhythm with has been a challenge, but Rabbit and I are up for the challenge!

This week has also seen the debut of a new format for the site – videos! At the moment, I am restricting this to some Talking Tech and digital game content. It’s still new to me, and I have some more kinks to work out. Let me know what you think about it!

But enough site stuff, onto what I got to play this week!

I finally got Marvel Champions to the table, and Alpal and I had a lot of fun playing it. I have played the Arkham Horror LCG, and Alpal has played the Lord of the Rings version. While fun, I have mixed feelings about Marvel Champions.

If you have played any trading/living card games before, the basics of Marvel Champions are easy to pick up. Engine building with the starter packs made sense, and we had a lot of fun.

But then it ended. There was no build-up, the game just ended. I knew we were getting close, and I had a couple of lucky card draws. We won, which was great, but I completely invalidated everything Alpal was planning while winning the game.

I will see if Rabbit wants to play and see if the same thing happens. But now that I finally have broken out Marvel Champions, I can’t wait to get into it for a formal review.

Marvel Champions
Near the start of the game. Not much was happening, and we got to keep Rhino's plans under control 🙂

Another Alpal surprise game, Rabbit Rally is another HABA gem that flew right below my radar.

If you don’t know about HABA games, they are simple games mainly targeted at younger players. Just because it’s aimed at kids rarely limits my enjoyment of these games though.

The idea of Rabbit Rally is simple. You play as a rabbit, and you want to reach an island first to get the legendary ‘golden carrot’ you can see growing there.

The catch? There is a stretch of water between you and the island. Each turn, you roll a die which shows a different coloured plank. Each plank is a different length, and you have to place a stone where you think the plank can reach. If the plank reaches, you progress! If you fall short, you miss a turn. 🙁

Silly and fun, Rabbit Rally was a great palate cleanser after the longer Marvel Champions. If you play with younger players, keep an eye out for Rabbit Rally, and let me know if you would like a more in-depth review.

Rabbit Rally
Simple components, straightforward play. If you want to have some silly fun, play with physical obstacles like putting cups in the way!

The last special from Alpal was Walking in Burano. When I saw the EmpororS4 badge, I was excited to give it a try.

The premise is straightforward – build a section of housing in line with the standards of Burano, Venice. Known for its colourful housing, this means you need to create a row of five houses of the same colour, but not having the same colour in two homes in a row.

Now, being colourblind, I appreciated the symbols on the houses that allowed me to tell the colours apart quickly. What I had trouble with was differences in the art like the pot plants and flowers.

I had to concentrate on tiny graphics on cards about a quarter of the size of a standard poker-sized card. The card sizes chosen for Walking in Burano help keep the size of your play area down, but the tiny details are used in end game bonus scoring.

Walking in Burano is a fun collection game, but if you have trouble with colours or focusing on tiny details, might give you some trouble.

Walking in Burano
I finished my little area 🙂 But I could have made better scoring choices with larger cards

Tokaido – Physical, Steam, Google Play, Apple Store

I have spoken about Tokaido a couple of times in the past, and last week I even did my first review cross gameplay video!

Everything I spoke about in my review, I would say again now. A great relaxing game that still has strategic elements, if you use Android jump in for free on the Google Play store now!

Keep in mind Namiji is coming to shelves later this year, which uses the same basic mechanics as Tokaido, but takes you on a very different journey.

Tokaido
Tokaido is beautiful both in the physical and digital form

Control – PS4

The story is insane and twists and turns with the paranormal backstory. I have really enjoyed playing Control, and I can’t wait to talk about it more in my review at the end of the week!

My fourth finished video game for the year! Now I am toying with completing it for the Platinum. I probably will, Control is fantastic. I am also deciding if I should try finishing the new Foundation DLC before Resident Evil 3 comes out April 3.

Control
The game takes a strange turn near the end of the story, turning you into a new office worker

Doom Eternal – Steam

But what do I think about Doom Eternal? Well, this was my first video experiment! Check out my first impressions here for more details.

When Doom 2016 came out, I instantly fell in love. While it was different from ‘my’ Doom back in the day, that quick and satisfying arcade-style gameplay was still very much intact.

Rip and Tear. What else can I say about Doom Eternal?

What about you?  I hope you got some great games in.  Or are you looking forward to a new one?  Let me know!  Shout out on Facebook or @JohnHQLD me on Twitter!

Last Week’s Gaming – March 23rd, 2020

Ticket To Ride

So my first week of working from home is complete. Gearing up for week 2.

Hi everyone.

Rabbit and I have been pretty sick this week, so we both worked from home while resting up and getting better. All up we are both fine, but with the current issues, it’s better to be safe and isolate ourselves.

There are prices to pay. Mainly I didn’t get to play board games with Alpal again this week like I was looking forward to doing. At least I know she got some Steam game inspiration from last week’s article. 😀

On the plus side, I have had time to sit and start tinkering with my recording/streaming setup! This has me excited for sharing my reactions to video games and stepping up the Talking Tech articles as well. I will share some more thoughts about all this below. 😀

Potion Explosion – Android/Steam

Writing my digital board game article, I realised I hadn’t played Potion Explosion for a while. So I took the opportunity to fix that. 🙂

I still only play against AI opponents, because I don’t have to wait on people on the internet. I can get many games in with the AI compared to a single game online. If that is your biggest complaint about a game, you know something is going right with the gameplay. 🙂

Next week if I play again, I have set myself a challenge to start playing with the potion/Professor combinations more. I have one single combo (basically the default settings) that I tend to play with. I feel like I am limiting myself with the possibilities by doing this.

I will let you know how that little experiment goes next week. 🙂

Potion Explosion
I need to give to give other potions a good run. I have played the same combo for a couple of years now!

Ticket to Ride – Xbox/Steam

While I have played the digital version of Ticket to Ride recently, I realised I had to play it again to grab some screenshots.

Oh no, what an awful position to find myself in!

Also talked about in last week’s digital board game article, all of my thoughts on Ticket to Ride hold true. Want a game you can sit back and enjoy? Ticket to Ride should be on most people’s short lists.

Eventually, pattern recognition will kick in and people will be battling for routes at a cutthroat pace. This is where the expansions come in – for very little money, you can almost get a new game!

Ticket To Ride
I came so close! This is fairly typical of my 5 player scoring though 🙂

One Deck Dungeon – Steam

Like I wasn’t going to give this little dungeon run another go. 🙂

I am getting to the point I am thinking of buying the expansion to play on PC. I have the stand-alone expansion Forest of Shadows physically. Still, as I have said, I love the quick play digitally.

There is a new poison mechanic introduced in Forest of Shadows, as well as new potions, rooms and monsters. There are also new heroes to play with. As I said, you can play Forest of Shadows stand alone, but you can also bring across your powered up original heroes as well.

That’s another one we will have to wait and see what I do next week. 🙂

One Deck Dungeon
Now you know why the Yeti hides from me :p

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore – Switch

I didn’t get too into Tokyo Mirage this week. That said, my Switch is sitting next to the bed for a quick round or two anytime.

The combat so far is relatively repetitive, and the pacing is throwing me off quite a bit. Exploration feels awkward in Tokyo, as you have many small areas to explore but fixed camera angles. That, coupled with the Japanese Pop Idol subplot, has me skipping text more than I thought I would.

That said, the bite-sized nature of the adventure makes for a great break between the more action-heavy games I am playing. I know exactly what I am supposed to be doing days later with the objective and Topic system.

Hopefully, I will get more into it again when I have finished the extra stuff I am doing at the moment.

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore
Flashy moves are great, but like Summons in Final Fantasy get a bit boring

Control – PS4 Pro

I played this a lot early in the week, but hope to pick it back up Sunday. The uneasy feeling that the start of the game me has passed, and I am pretty sure that’s because I haven’t been subjected to more Threshold Kids videos! 😀

Power-wise I am doing pretty well. I have now unlocked levitating and started claiming more Objects of Power. The game is excellent, and now I want to spend a couple of hours backtracking and tackling side missions.

Now that I have gotten into the game, I am 99% certain that this will be my next Platinum Trophy run. The same locations in the Oldest House are a bit repetitive, but combat has been nicely ramping up. Now I am getting into the exploration and collectable aspects as well.

I just need to make time to finish Control before the full release of the next game. 🙂

Control
Having a chill time turning enemies into friends 🙂

Resident Evil 3: Racoon City Demo – Xbox One S, PC

Resident Evil 2 last year was a game I basically inhaled. I didn’t Platinum it, and I probably never will. Not because I don’t enjoy it, but because some of the requirements just seem a little out of reach for my skill level.

I can dedicate time and get better at the game, but I have so many other games I want to play it will feel like work.

In a couple of weeks, the remake of Resident Evil 3 comes out, and I can’t wait to play it! So it was with glee on Friday I downloaded the demo on every platform I can play it on. 🙂

But this takes me into a side project I have been playing with the last couple of days…

Resident Evil 3 Racoon City Demo
No scary screens here. But even on the Xbox One X, I love the reflections the devs managed to get working in this engine!

Coming Soon – DOOM Eternal!

I preordered and even preloaded Doom Eternal in preparation for last Friday’s release.

Usually, I don’t play first-person shooters. Destiny and Doom are two notable exceptions to this, and I have given away Destiny 2. But Doom 2016 bought back great memories of the original games, and I am looking forward to playing this reboot/remake going forward.

And then I thought about it. What if I recorded my initial reactions for a game I have been looking forward to? So I have been tweaking my setup using the Resident Evil 3 Demo as my test setup!

This means I can start also planning videos for my Talking Tech articles, hopefully making them a bit easier for you. It also means I can finally get into the video projects I have been sitting on, like taking you through old games I loved back in the day. 🙂

Streaming Test
Getting the setup sorted. It's close!

What about you?  I hope you got some great games in.  Or are you looking forward to a new one?  Let me know!  Shout out on Facebook or @JohnHQLD me on Twitter!

Until tomorrow,

Last Week’s Gaming – March 16th, 2020

Control

Games played, and one title for ‘work’ with the site

Hi everyone!

I didn’t get much gaming in this week, between work and preparation for a few pieces with Talking Tech. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t get to play anaything! Hopefully next week I will get more board games in with Alpal, but we will see how everything goes.

Enough retrospection, onto what I did play this week!

I have cracked. I got One Deck Dungeon on my phone. I can play it whenever and whereever I like.

And I don’t like it on my phone.

The gameplay is solid, that hasn’t changed. The problem is the amount of screen size you get on your phone. Playing One Deck Dungeon on PC, I can see everything that is happening. The worst I have to do is scroll through some skills.

On my phone, I have to flip between 4 screens. Reviewing status, skills and using items means flipping between screens. It’s not terrible, but it’s not great either.

If you don’t have the PC version to compare it to, One Deck Dungeon on mobile is fine. But after this experience, I would have to say play on a tablet. You need th extra screen space.

Oh, and I finished a gauntlet run on Steam. I did lose one round though! I will have to try for my perfect run again. What a pity 🙂

One Deck Dungon Mobile
I can see everything happening for this encounter, but I need to change screens to see my characters

Control – PS4 and PC

I am being a little cagey about my time with Control. I know people raved about it when it was released late last year, and after a few hours I can see why.

It is very different, and doesn’t even try to apologise for it. The opening voiceover even warns you this is going to be a different experience.

While not what I would call scary, enough of the opening story and videos had me unnerved. You think the game and/or story is going one way, and I was usually wrong.

It has some issues for me so far. The action is solid, but the discover the story narrative style is very slow. Puzzles haven’t been overly taxing or out of place, but there is a lot of timed side missions that feel like a way of padding out the experience rather than fun experiences on their own.

You will be seeing a lot of Control in the next few weeks, both in Last Week’s Gaming and Talking Tech. Yep, I am using it for some of my upcoming tech articles over the next few weeks – I hope you look forward to that 🙂

Control
Somehow, the story is crazier than the gameplay. What do you expect in a world with true paranormal events?

Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore – Switch

During the week, I had to go and spend some time waiting for Rabbit. I thought this would be a great time to try this Persona/Shin Megami Tensei cross Fire Emblem release.

Everything on paper has me interested. I haven’t played Persona 5 yet (I know, but I told you my backlog was impressive). That said, I have played enough Persona 4 Golden to know that this portable version would be right at home on the Switch.

The narrative has me on the back foot a bit. You discover that you can use Mirages (spirits?) in combay on another plane, and these helpful Mirages are from Fire Emblem. But in the ‘real’ world, you start on the path of becoming Idols – Japanese Pop Stars is the quickest summary I can give.

It has me intrigued, but largely because I can just save and put it down after a fight or two. And I have Control waiting in the wings. This is the problem with playing multiple attention grabbing games 🙂

Tokyo Sessions Mirage FE Encore
It's a strange premise, but so for I am enjoying it. For an RPG though, I will say it's not for everyone.

What about you?  I hope you got some great games in.  Or are you looking forward to a new one?  Let me know!  Shout out on Facebook or @JohnHQLD me on Twitter!

Until tomorrow,

Top 10 Video Games 2019 (I Wish I Played)

JohnHQLD Logo

Oh how I wish more time. And energy. Mainly time 🙂

We all know that great equation. You need sleep so you can work and earn money. But you wish you could still play games and only have 4 hours sleep and still function 🙂

2019 had some fantastic game releases, and I only got to play a fraction of all the releases I wanted to. So welcome to the Top 10 list of games I wish I played last year!

Number 10 – Concrete Genie

Released late in 2019, Concrete Genie has been getting some great reviews. And it’s PSVR compatible!

At its core, Concrete Genie is a puzzle game that uses freestyle drawing and colour instead of pure logic and fetch quests to complete. What isn’t to be intrigued about?

I am a little concerned that my colour blindness could impact playing the game, but playing with Rabbit in the room should help teach me what is where.

By all accounts a laid back but challenging game, I will probably try and give Concrete Genie a go later this year.

Concrete Genie

Number 9 – Sea of Solitude

I remember when Sea of Solitude first caught my eye, it was 2016ish. It looked like an interesting premise, a young girl escaping monsters in a submerged city, with a world to explore and learn the story.

Then I saw it coming up in a few Game of the Year 2019 lists. I didn’t even realise it had released!

A story that focuses on a young girl facing her inner demons, both narratively and in-game. The monsters in the game are facets of her personality and the issues that bring them out. Building the story as she (and you as the player) is intriguing and challenging, so I wish I knew it had come out.

Sea of Solitude

Number 8 – River City Girls

River City Girls is more a throwback to the old school Double Dragon/Final Fight arcade days with a few twists. The most obvious one is that you play as high school girls rescuing their boyfriends, but the changes go deeper than that.

There are the standard moves, combos and power-ups that side-scrolling beat-em-ups are known for. But you can also beat up enemies and then recruit them to work for you, giving you the ability to customise your team and assistance when required.

River City Girls isn’t deep, but it is a retro arcade throwback that looks like fun and from all accounts delivers on that promise.

River City Girls

Number 7 – Borderlands 3

I wouldn’t say I am a huge Borderlands fan, but the series is fun and a shooter I would play over a lot of others. On my wish list to start is Borderlands 2 VR, and if I could get a group of players regularly would love to try and play all 3 in coop mode.

One thing I do hear about Borderlands 3 is it is more Borderlands. This isn’t a bad thing at all. But even though I enjoyed the first 2 games solo (I haven’t played the pre-sequel), the most fun is had when playing with friends.

I will eventually give Borderlands 3 a try, but I wish I had time to have already done so.

Borderlands 3

Number 6 – Trover Saves The Universe

I am a huge Rick and Morty fan, so this was always on my radar. I really want to play it in VR, and I haven’t had the time or the proper setup lately to do so. I also want to finish Virtual Rick-ality which I have problems touching the ground in PSVR, and I don’t want the same thing happening.

Is this a groundbreaking game with a deeply satisfying story? Nope. It is a fun platformer with the co-creator of Rick and Morty providing the jokes, so I imagine it will be a fun couple of days and then put it away. Think an adult-oriented AstroBot Rescue Mission. Oh alright, a childish adult-oriented version :p

But what a couple of days 😀 Final decision eventually will be stick with the VR dream, or pick it up on Switch where it was recently released?

Trover Saves The Universe

Number 5 – Doctor Who: The Edge of Time

I was so excited when I heard The Edge of Time was coming out, and then I just glossed over it. Partly moving, partly unhappy with PSVR setup, mostly just busy and forgot.

Like a couple of other games on this list, The Edge of Time won’t be for everyone. Having grown up on Doctor Who (Tom Baker was my first), the chance to explore different scenarios and in VR is very appealing.

I can’t say for sure (obviously or it wouldn’t be on this list), but I am getting a bit of a VR Escape Room experience vibe from The Edge of Time. Some of these are fun, some not so much.

Either way, I picked it up on PSVR with the Jan sale recently, so I will let you know in a formal review later this year!

Doctor Who The Edge of Time

Number 4 – The Outer Wilds

Consistently confused with and for The Outer Worlds launched at almost the same time, I heard the title but missed the pitch. Some blinders attached themselves to me and stopped me from seeing this title. And I really, really regret it.

Yes, it’s an open-world(ish) sci-fi adventure ala The Outer Worlds. Yes, you have to save the universe. But you can’t win the game without losing. And losing. And losing again.

Closer to space Groundhog Day, you have a small window of time to find out why your planet is destroyed and save it. But you can’t do it the first time. When you fail, you wake up again at the start of the game with your memories of the previous loop intact.

This sounds great, and it’s on Game Pass, so I will be giving it a try sometime.

The Outer Wilds

Number 3 – Control

I had a lot of doubts about Control when it was coming out. It wasn’t the game itself, Remedy has provided some great experiences over the years. It was the PC port and RTX that had me fed up with the hype.

Graphics help in many ways, but they aren’t all that makes a game. A lot of internet trolling about graphics effects not on their Xbox or PS4 because they didn’t have a brand new graphics cards that cost 3-4x their console just annoyed me. So I didn’t even look at it.

Yeah, I should have just picked up Control. It sounds like my style of game. Lot’s of exploration with a story as deep as you want it to be – it’s a JohnHQLD dream that I let tech trolls kill for me. Need to fix that.

Control

Number 2 – Luigi’s Mansion 3

I first played Luigi’s Mansion on a friends Gamecube. Never finished it until it came out on DS recently. I have Luigi’s Mansion 2 but haven’t started it. I don’t know if I will at the moment, but that’s because DS gaming is all but officially dead at the moment. But I digress.

Coming out on Halloween, why hadn’t I even started this game up? Well, because I was neck-deep in The Outer Worlds, but that was a whole another console!

I am pretty sure Luigi’s Mansion 3 will be a great palate cleanser between some of the big games I want to play in 2020 (More about that soon!), but the included mini-games might even make for a fun games night or two 😀

Luigi's Mansion 3

Number 1 – Death Stranding

Hideo Kojima. That is all I needed to hear to be onboard with Death Stranding. I even pre-ordered the PS4 Pro Death Stranding Console. Partially because I wanted a Pro that didn’t sound like a jet engine. Partly because it looks great without being overboard.

As regulars know, the end of last year was all over the place for multiple reasons. I wish I had time to sit down and play Death Stranding, but I just didn’t. Unlike a lot of open-world adventures (like The Outer Worlds for example), Kojima games tend to require more alertness to play. Bottom line, I was too tired to give Death Stranding the attention it deserves.

I have been trying to avoid anything substantially story related to the game, so I can enjoy as fresh as I can. As things go on, this will probably get harder. I have heard lots of opinions, but I know I am not walking into an action game. I just don’t know exactly what I will be walking into.

This will be rectified in the coming months 🙂

Death Stranding

What do you think? Is there a 2019 release you think I should be playing before any of these? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

JohnHQLD
