Speed dating for ghosts
I thought it would be fun and entertaining and it was, but it was also surprisingly emotional.

The Binding of Isaac has been my go to game recently. It's a very very messed up rogue-like, but a lot of fun and surprisingly deep when it comes to emergent gameplay and evolving strategies.

Currently have been alternating between The Sims 4 and Minecraft, with some occasional plays of Untitled Goose Game and Cities; Skylines

Least be said, I enjoy building worlds, lol

I have been playing Maiden and Spell, a new game that I've been eyeing for a bit. It seemed like a neat concept, and the art and music drew me. It's a shoot em up with a single player boss rush campaign, with additional extra bosses rewarded for completion of the main campaign. But it's also a multiplayer PVP game, with multiple characters, each with a unique loadout. I don't know much about the developer, but the rollback netcode in it is very good, unusually so for a Japanese developed game. I'm playing with people with 300ms ping or so and lag is imperceptible. Both the single player campaign and multiplayer duels feel great. I played through the single player sections on normal and now I'm just having a blast duelling people online.

As a kid I played through Wild Arms 1 & 3, and they're both pretty great, so I've been meaning to play through the rest of the series some time.

I heard Wild Arms 4 was the bad one, and the theme song is good, so I had to play it.

This game is wild. It's stupid in such a way as to perfectly appeal to me. It has that typical JRPG thing where they're trying to deal with themes that are way above the capability of the writers, so you get these incredible conversations about moral relativity and how a "war criminal" and a "hero" aren't necessarily any different, except filtered through a fairly incompetent translation and poor voice acting and (I imagine) a bad original script. There are scenes where a bunch of ridiculously aged men in suits of armour talk at each other about how representative democracy doesn't work. There are villains who have special powers that are immediately undone and do not make sense. I'm trying to avoid real spoilers here and there are a lot of stupid things I specifically avoided mentioning. This game is a hidden treasure of stupidity for anyone who enjoys bad media.

^ good to hear that I'm not the only one still playing 3DS! :)


I have been playing Devious Dungeon lately. It was on sale and I liked the demo. It's fun.

I've been playing Ori and the Will of the Wisps. I've played the first few hours and so far it's a large improvement over the first game. I loved the first game, with its incredibly tight platforming, controls and fluid animation. It had a great sense of flow with how you traversed the game's levels. But the combat was garbage, and even if it made up a minor element of the game over its playtime, it was still a weak point of the game.

The new game has much improved combat mechanics, heavily borrowing from Hollow Knight, with less button mashing spam and more focus on melee combat and avoiding attacks. It's still not one of the game's strong points, with little visual feedback on impacts; most enemies don't get knocked back by hits and your player character inches forwards with combos, so if you're not careful you can combo straight into taking contact damage. It also uses a similar system to Hollow Knight's charms.

But like the first game, so far the combat seems to be a pretty small part of the game. It's much more heavily focused on its platforming, which I'm glad for. The first game was unique for being a Metroidvania style game that was mostly a platformer, and it'd lose some identity by leaving that behind. There's other games like this that do the combat better, so it should stick to what it does best.

Like the first game, it's incredible to look at. If Pixar used their resources to animate a film on behalf of Ghibli, I imagine it'd look like this game.

I'm currently playing Farming Simulator 19. It's surprisingly addicting.
