  1. VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action (Vita)
    • Quite enjoyed this visual novel.
    • Solid A.
  2. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Champion’s Ballad DLC (DLC) (Switch)
    • Final boss was easily the hardest.
    • Completed on Master Mode.
    • 245+ hours.

    • Those cutscenes. :boom:
  4. Blaster Master Zero (Switch)

    • At the end, felt like a B+.

  10. Far Cry 5 (PS4)

    • Being chased by “cutscene bullets” is not my idea of good way to “push the story forward”.

  11. Wizard of Legend (Switch)

  14. YAKUZA 0 (PS4) [57hr est]
    • Took time to get into, wasn’t sure what to expect.
    • Had trouble staying with it until about chapter 8 or 9.
    • Finally got hooked and beelined the story.
    • It went from “I’m not sure…” to “Ok, I’ll get back to it later…” to “Just one more chapter”
    • Started as a C+ and ended as an A+.
  15. Moonlighter (PS4)
    • Loved the art style and game design
    • Eventually wrought with bugs

:rocket: Jettisoned

  1. Divinity: Original Sin (PS4)

:thought_balloon: Why?

“You should be playing games you enjoy. Just remember your pile when you start looking for something else to play, instead of purchasing another title. That’s really all this is for - to make sure you enjoy what you’re playing and getting rid of stuff that you aren’t.” - Me

:memo: Notes to Self

  • I should not buy DLC until I am ready to play it.
  • I stop playing open world games when I complete the main story.
