Not much time for gaming this summer compared to previous years, wife and I are much more invested in going out places and seeing concerts, plus I am working for a football team and they are currently in season, leaving me with two days off a month sometimes! I've got all my time off planned for further concerts and a camping trip too, plus I already got to see King Crimson and Muse!! Great summer so far. I was having a hard time focusing on one game but Shadow of Mordor was impossible to pass up at $6 during the last sale given all the praise I've read for it. Incredible game, I love everything about it. It reminds me of MGSV: TPP, that's the only game I can compare it to. What else am I playing
Alan Wake - I loved this game so much!! I got everything except the no-death runs of the DLC, that is so challenging!! I give it a go every once in awhile but I get worn out playing the same bits over and over, only to die to a stupid pit 90 minutes into a run. I heard the final bosses can glitch out too, ruining a whole 2 hour no death run at the very end!! Maybe it isn't worth it
Mega Coin Squad - This may also not be worth it, but I like this game enough to keep going. It's super shallow, reminds me of a cell phone game without the ads, but until I get a no-death run I won't delete it. By the time I get that I won't have long to grind out the remaining coins for the last achievement. I hope I get this done soon
Mad Max - I got the game pass specifically to play this game first and I can't recommend against it enough! I hated playing this, enemies would glitch out constantly, I would be propelled into the air and die from fall damage, my car would fly into the air and I couldn't get it to land... eugh. I figured out the ammo thing pretty quickly but then I had to get rid of this. Get something else from the pass! This blows
Gears of War 3 - This, on the other hand, was a pretty much perfect game. I'm just one chapter from the end on hardcore, I should beat it before going further in my current game. This was certainly my favourite Gears game of the 360 incarnations. Can't wait to fire up Definitive Edition and 4!
Guacamelee!! - I like this a lot, but I haven't touched it since I bought Mordor. I remember what I was doing so it shouldn't be hard to pick up. Lots of little game and lucha references. I saw a Vampiro poster and marked out
Here are other things I'm looking at for later
Halo 5 - this is larger than my monthly download limit, and I have to clear a ton of space, but I'm going to do this one after Mordor I think. Exciting, my favourite two Halo games are Reach and 4 so I hope this continues the trend for me
Ori and the Blind Forest - Picked this up in a sale, heard it was awesome
Dark Dreams Don't Die - I wanted this one for awhile but missed it when it was GWG, glad it's on the game pass
I'll probably play those Sega collections on the game pass for completions too. I still think I can reach my lofty completed games goal, although I keep ruining my completion percentage so I bet I will fail that goal for the third year in a row. Can't win em all!
