    @yoda313 I actually thought it was great. It wasn't perfect, and if people wanted the first game all over again it certainly wasn't that. But what they did with the story and it's perspective I haven't personally seen before and it kept me pretty enthralled. I went in with no expectations, and I think it served me well

    I'm that way with certain movies. I dont go into a fast and furious movie expecting a think piece. I also try to limit what I read and watch before diving into a game or movie I really want.

    Makes me wonder what would have happened if there wasn't a leak??

    TLOU2, I completed it.

    Incredible gameplay, but I have such mixed emotions on the story. A lot of the people in that game did not deserve the fate they received. I won't give anything away about the ending, it's kind of open ended like the first game, but the first game gave so much more closure.

    Started playing "Horizon: Zero Dawn" on PC. Lovely game (albeit still waiting for some of the issues with the pc port to be fixed).

    This may have been a mistake but I recently brought The Song of Saya (Saya no Uta) on a Steam sale and have subsequently played through one run of it. I haven't played really any visual novels before this. I didn't really like Saya no Uta when I began it, but I came to enjoy the Lovecraftian vibe. I think the mystery and suspense were played off well. The fact that Gen Urobuchi wrote the script was the main selling point for me since I thoroughly enjoy Madoka Magica.

    I've also been regularly been playing Magic: The Gathering Arena I've got a Dimir Control list that I've been enjoying to play. I mostly have been playing best of one rather than best of three because I don't really understand sideboarding the list very well. I was worried that the deck didn't have enough win conditions, but often you'll gain enough card advantage that a lone Crawling Barrens will be enough. Mindmaze Tome has been really overperforming since it makes passing with open mana a lucrative option.

    I have also been trying to play Mono Blue, but the pieces aren't quite there. Vantress Gargoyle is a sad play against both of the escape decks and the mill decks which there are a lot of on ladder. I also miss playing Quench and Mu Langling which both rotated out. Quench was no Mana Leak because your opponents could comfortably play around it, but having a decent turn 2 mana counter was quite important. Sure there still are Essence Scatter and Negate, but those were a bit too narrow without black's removal to back them up. Mu Langling is a big loss for the deck, because it doubled as a reliable win condition (the emblem was very difficult to beat).

    Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate. I had the Japanese version of MHX for 3DS but I didn't pick up MHGU (MHXX) until this year. Just got to G rank.

    Been prepping for MH:Rise coming to switch this month. Kinda not stoked for some of the things they are doing, kinda stoked for some things they are doing, should be fun anyways.

    I am almost done with tales of zesteria on the ps3!

    I had set it aside for a few years. I got to a boss but kept getting hammered and couldn't get past it. I finally picked it up again this winter after finishing doom eternal.

    I do have the strategy guide for this tales game. Its not as essential as I thought but it helped understand the combat a bit more. Now I've got some more control over the health stats and power levels. I haven't mastered it yet but its made it a bit easier.

    Looking forward to beating the last boss!!!
