Control is a pretty good game! Though I'm kinda blasting through at least half the bosses so far now I put a good bit into the telekinesis which makes it pretty easy.

does it get old? the RPS review says the combat is kinda shitty which is a bummer if it's got a lot of combat


p.s. pc friends Superhot is today's Epic freebie, pretty good

I'm thinking far cry 5 because I like dumb junk food shooters

and I really want RDR2 but it's 150GB which until my internet connection improves (hopefully in a couple months) will take me like a week of dedicated downloading overnight aaaargh

I played the whole thing in like four days. Maybe about ten hours. It's short and probably not very replayable. But it's absolutely gorgeous and the story is fantastic. It's pretty easy though. And combat is repetitive.

I'd give it like a 7.5/10. Dunno what the sale price is. It was free on gamepass.

far cry 5's not even good junk food. it's a slog of grinding the most ubisoft way.

instead of buying a few mediocre $20 games I'll just get doom eternal on release and work through my gigantic backlog

I totally understand some of the criticism, but I absolutely loved RDR2. Didn't play any online, though.

i picked up children of morta on sale but it seems like a progress quest kinda game of incrementality which i fucking loathe so someone tell me if it gets more mechanically interesting than hold-stick-one-way

also got observation which i fully expect to love

and apparently there's a game of the 80s joe devers lone wolf gamebooks for like $3.50 so i obviously bought that just to see

on the topic, Celeste is free today on Epic


I was all 'ehhh I can't do these platform games that journalists love to circle jerk and use the phrase 'hard as nails' to describe" but then .. I learned it has an "assist mode"
all games should do that
