Yakuza 0. Time to get overly invested in a whole new series

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen

It almost feels like a whole new XCOM. I can't say it renders vanilla XCOM 2 totally obsolete (I'm not crazy about the soldier fatigue system, and the photomode feels tacked on and pointless) but I appreciate most of the new shit. Covert Ops and soldier bonds are really cool and add a lot of depth to the core game. The new Chosen enemies are whatever. They talk too damn much.

Also worth noting, my Jane Kelly on this playthrough is somehow even more badass than she was on the first. For those not in the know, Jane Kelly is like the unofficial Samus Aran/Master Chief/Doom Guy of XCOM 2.

The Evil Within 2

It's pretty good. The open worldy stuff in chapter 3 was really neat but it started to get old after a while. The game seems to settle into a more linear progression after that, similar to the first game, and I'm enjoying it a lot more now. Currently in chapter 6.

To the Top.

I don't think I have had more fun speed running a game than this. It's probably the best game I've played this year.

Mario and Luigi SuperStar Saga + Bowser's Minion

It's really cool playing what's one of the most defining games of my life again. The charm is still there in spades, but this new art style and the small changes leading to a much easier game derive from an experience that honestly had nowhere to go but down - the original was near perfect. The way the original game was awesome at using the GBA completely is lost on the 3DS and being away from the latter trashfire of a system, those buttons fucking suck. But it's still SuperStar Saga, and SuperStar Saga is life.
