So my GTASC 2018 #FunRun is over. Finished 239th this year
. Probably a good thing. My obsessive compulsiveness was still getting to me. However, thanks to a house guest and cottage renos being back in full swing I may now gain some sanity. Who am I kidding? I'll still game like crazy, but I definitely have a lot more good stuff on the docket. Good luck to everyone still in it this year. I'll be watching it all happily from the sidelines.E3 Musings
I finally had time to finish watching a good chunk of the E3 conferences. I'm pretty excited for the future of gaming. Lots of good games coming down the pipeline. From what I have had time to watch, I would rate the conferences in the following order:
I haven't had time to watch Sony's or Nintendo's yet, but my buddies said Sony's was not the greatest. Apparently there was even a reporter that just wanted to go home from it
Honestly I think Microsoft nailed it this year. Lot's of good looking games coming out. Not a ton of exclusives that I'm dying for other than the new Halo has me intrigued. Will probably be waiting quite a while for that one. Gears of War 5 will be a definite play for me. Hope that Gears Pop game has achievements lmao. Other games that definitely have my attention from this conference are Dying Light 2 (need to play the first :P) and Cyberpunk 2077.
Bethesda has so much coming out in the future, that there conference was pretty amazing. I will definitely be looking out for more info on their new IP Starfield. Elder Scrolls will be a long ways off. I'll probably play the new Fallout 76, but I really should blast through the old one that I have and haven't played yet
Ubisoft's conference was the same as it usually is. They have a ton of stuff in the works. I was pretty interested in the Skull & Bones games until it started to look like a Sea of Thieves clone. Assassin's Creed looks great, so does Beyond Good and Evil (both franchises that I have to finish playing games in).
EA's conference seemed very awkward this year. I was mostly watching to hear more about Anthem. Wasn't really into the girl they had MCing the event. She was just annoying. The whole format was a little bit off. Anthem does look really nice though. Would have loved to have heard more about the next Dragon Age, but Anthem will have to do. The Battlefield V trailer with the girl looked pretty great too (still haven't played one of my Battlefield games I own yet ffs).
The SquareEnix conference wasn't really a conference. It was just a video with trailers for all of their games coming out. Was really hoping to see some Final Fantasy VII remaster, but NO .... Already new about Shadow of the Tomb Raider and they showed most of the same stuff we already no about so no surprise there. I'll probably get Kingdom Hearts 3 as well.
Anyway, that's my take on E3 so far. I'll have to go back through the list of games that were announced to see what else I missed. I know there were a couple of them
.Last 2 Weeks of Gaming
Even with being stupid busy I did fit in some gaming the last 2 weeks. Was able to knock some more achievements out thanks to the Viral Event. Gt a bunch done in Charlie Murder and also knocked out the viral stuff in Halo Wars 2 and CastleStorm.
Finally finished off my last play through of Oxenfree to complete the game. Also started and finished Occultic;Nine. Another JP game I have no clue what's going on.
Spent a ton of time playing Neverwinter the last couple of weeks. Lot's to do in it still but I definitely made a big dent.
I was really excited that Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition finally came out and actually has achievements tied to it. Played through the first chapter. Super cute. Love that the levels are short. Looking forward to playing more of that one.
That's it for now!
