Well, yeah, similarly I'm looking for guys to play with. I'm on XB1. GT is same as my name on here (Creative, right?).
Rocket League, Fortnite or PUBG. Definitely hit me up. Infinitely more fun when you can communicate.

I tried Fortnite, but just couldn’t get into like I can PUBG. I actually like the style of it, but not aiming down the sights drives me absolutely crazy.

So anyone playing Monster Hunter World? Thinking it be a good idea to create a Greydog Squad and invite whoever's playing on this board.

Been taking my time making it through Persona 5. No time for other games at the minute. It's part I don't want this game to end and just not enough time in the world.

Finally reached the point you start the game at. In the casino, palace 6. Enjoyed this palace a lot more than the previous. Boss lady was a bit too easy but it made sense because of what was to follow.

I knew that guy was bad news from the moment I first laid eyes on him. The whole revelation about how my wonderful team got me out of there. Superb Bret Hart-esque storytelling. I was in awe. haha

Besides WMMA 5, Monster Hunter World on ps4 has eaten up all my spare time to the point where I haven't bothered picking up any other games, it's grindy as all hell but it's a fun and rewarding grind.

Well I did purchase MH4 for PS4, but I haven't started playing it yet...I have a huge backlog of games (mostly on PC/Steam).

I did buy EA UFC3. I did appreciate that they removed the more annoying mini games from the single player career mode, however it is still a mostly linear experience with not many changes from last year. Overall I'm satisfied for what I expected but it won't be long before it starts to gather dust. It's weird that last year my brain couldn't connect the dots with the submission mini-game and this year it's like second nature. I'm pretty sure it's still the same so I have no idea why my brain is suddenly processing it better.

Same thing here. I'm satisfied with the improvements made, but career is still lackluster. Once you've seen the "movies" the replayability is very low. I find myself playing UT mode though, and the difficulty compared to last year makes it intriguing as I lose several times against other player's AI fighters. And I just like opening boosters, even though the contents are irrelevant. The prediction game for UFC events is also fun. I got 3/5 perfects.

Got you beat there, I still have a working Atari 2600. Or I should say it was working the last time I tried it. I mean it was not working well but it was still usable.

I know there were some fans of Life is Strange. Did anyone play the prequel?

I found it to be enjoyable. Maybe not as enjoyable as the first game but they were two very different games even if they were similar in some aspects.

Finished off Persona 5. Wow. ***** performance. Loved it.

I didn't want to read any of those I wish I knew such and such videos before I started playing. Scared of being spoiled. So now I can watch those videos and feels like I missed out on a lot. Simple things like putting the right persona mask on when you meet your confidant. etc etc.

Looks like I'll have to go through it again.

The oldest thing I have is a Nintendo, so you beat me there. But these old consoles last forever, even when not used for a long while, if I stop using my PS3 for a few months, it doesn't even recognize the CDs anymore until I fix it. Dunno if the PS4 has the same issue or not.

You are absolutely right the older systems do seem to last longer. I have lost count how many times my 360 died on me. I think it was like thirteen times or so. Knock on wood but I have yet to have an issue with my X-Box One S.

I played the prequel. I really liked most of it, but I kind of felt that like the base game that the last episode was a bit lackluster compared to the rest.

I really enjoyed all of the mini games that were in the episodes. Those were great.

I really liked both games, but I've felt like they weren't really able to stick the landings.

Does anyone play any other text based games? I've been playing on Hollywood Mogul 3 (currently free to play) and Music Wars Rebirth 2 (bought it years ago but never played it until recently. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations?

Anybody else been playing Shiny since it came out or am I the only one among us? I got it from Amazon last week and I have to say I'm kind of disappointed I did. I'm finding the game to be a mixed bag.

Mechanically the game is really good. For those who don't know the game, Shiny is a side scrolling platformer where you control this roly-poly little maintainence bot who heads out in this highly industrial planetscape to find his fellow robots and repair them. There also something about a spaceship you're trying to fix up and I think all these robots are supposed to man the ship when everything's working right. The whys and wherefores are really muddy in this game. However the game play is crisp, movements are fluid and rarely are you left wondering what you're meant to do when. Commands are neatly separated and never are you asked to perform too complex a chain of actions to get something done. Square will open doors and power up checkpoints. Triangle lets you use your backup battery. L2 or R2 will activate shields. It's all very straightforward. To the point you could use Shiny to help someone learn modern gaming who had left themselves exiled in the 8 or 16 bit era. Really can't complain about the engine at all.

The problem with the game and it is a killer is the complete and utter lack of personality. Your little maintainence robot is certainly no Clank. The game is industrial in the extreme and it treats factors like having a coherent backstory or giving the robots personalities you can care about as frills that are totally anathema to its intended goals. Which makes the game's title shamefully ironic. Part of the reason I bought Shiny is because the character and background designs felt like someone had blended Star Wars and Wall-E. But there is no Wall-E or R2-D2 or Twiki here. It's all heartless, colorless industrial mechanism. And that just wastes the game's potential. Had the robots had character and the backstory been fuller bodied, this could have been one of THE games of 2018. An underground hit with huge franchise potential. Instead most of those who do buy it will likely trade it in to Gamestop. Then when the next gen comes, Shiny will be just another forgettable title that once existed for the PS4. I know that's what it's probably going to be for me.

Just got a Switch 2 months ago for my birthday and I've been hooked on BOTW. Outside Mario Odyssey, any recommendations? I'm pretty much open to whatever.
