Warriors games are always fun to me. There's something about beating 1000 nameless faceless peons to a pulp by pushing buttons blindly that feels awesome.

I just beat Sekiro!... FINALLY! 212 hours I spent playing that game  :speechless: About 80 hours of that was just redoing the first 3/4 of the game after my save got corrupted.

Got the Dragon's Return ending, because after all that, I was going to make damn sure I did everything. Not real clear what happened though. The Divine Child is somehow pregnant with a baby Kuro?? And she and Sekiro travel to China.

Sword Saint Isshin was tough, but nowhere near as obnoxious as the Demon of Hatred. Took me about 2 1/2 hours to beat Isshin. Came within one hit of beating him a couple times and choked. Honestly, I'd say even Owl (Father) was harder. Then again, both the Demon and Owl (Father) are optional.

Honestly, the only really hard part of Isshin was the second phase when he pulls out the spear. He has ludicrous range (not even counting the gun), and the timing on his attacks is very tricky and hard to discern. Phase one you can basically just run around until he starts charging up something and then get behind him, and phase three you can just abuse the lightning reversal.

Now of course, with the recent update, there are "Inner" (read: super) version of Gennichiro, Owl and Isshin. Haven't attempted any of that. I'm debating whether to go for the Shura ending, just so I can say I did everything. Been putting off Horizon Zero Dawn to finish this game though, so maybe I'll switch to that for a while.

Man, that was exhausting...

Finally made it through Mario's Super Picross. I enjoyed it, of course (It's PICROSS!) but this one is almost too much of a good thing. The initial 3 sets of puzzles become 3 then 6 then 10, then come the super puzzles, then the ultra puzzles, then the hidden puzzles, and then, never one to be upstaged, Wario's hidden puzzles. 300 in all, and the last 100 or so are a challenge even for veteran Picrossers. I loved it, but I'm happy to be free to move on.

Just finished There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension.

This is the most "meta" game I've ever seen. Not particularly difficult, or long, but certainly worth playing. Currently $13 on Steam.

If you want to play another game like it, play Dude, Stop!.

Never heard of it but looks interesting. I'll probably check it out eventually, when I have some more money :P Thanks for the recommendation :)

I just beat Horizon: Zero Dawn!

That was a fantastic game! Also one of the most beautiful games I've ever played. I'm sorry it's over. 81 hours it took me, including the DLC and pretty much all the side quests, except the hunting trophies. But I tend to spend a lot of time dicking around in these sorts of games. I ran into one game breaking bug during the DLC that forced me to skip through some conversations or else the game would crash. Other than that it was entirely glitch free.

For such a silly sounding premise as "fight robot dinosaurs with a bow and arrows", they did a good job of coming up with a credible back story for how the world ended up like this. I won't spoil it, but it's pretty bleak. The DLC fills in some holes in the main story, and there are a ton of datapads lying around that also help explain the state of the world, many of which I'm sure I missed. Still, the question of what set the events of the game in motion is left for the clearly intended sequel. Hopefully we won't have to wait ages for it to come to PC.

If I were to offer any gameplay tips it would just be this: Hoard Blaze. It's the only resource I used a lot of that I regularly ran out of. Including during the final boss fight, which sucked because you absolutely need fire weapons for that fight.

Well worth playing if you have a PS4 or a gaming PC.
