    I distinctly remember PS4's being next to impossible to get until well after Christmas.

    sucks for the originally actor but they recast the Spider-man who will appear in the remaster for PS5

    Wonder if they did that to make him look more like Tom Holland?

    I would like to know the reasoning behind this, because at surface level that's really shitty. He gave a great performance. Elevated the game.

    Oh cool, I didn't know Frictional was making a new one. I liked The Dark Descent but never played A Machine for Pigs.

    Pyromancies done. That leaves rings and Miracles. I’ll print out a ring spreadsheet before I fire it up again, and then do the Darkmoon or whatever it is covenant to help out other players who’ve been invaded. That probably won’t work well until the weekend.

    Lot of invasions as a Mad Spirit to unlock the final Pyromancy.

    Resident Evil VII does really kinda degenerate into sub-par monster encounters replete with at least one huge boss encounter that is neither challenging nor interesting. The monstrosity of course has these big orange eyeballs in the most improbable of locations that have to be targeted. I'm a bit surprised that towards the latter half the game is making an effort to fully tie this into the Resident Evil universe with a [
    ] and from where the evil emanated, and which explains the reason why the Baker family got infected.

    I kinda wish they were simply a depraved bunch. I figured with the reviews that this game was a bold new direction for the franchise. I guess I assumed it would stand on its own narratively.

    Although this does explain some of the critters lurking in the mansion itself, so I guess a bit torn here.

    Still a pretty scary game.

    Squad: At least one Ranger. Specialist with a good hacking score. Pending on environment, heavy or sniper. Snipers in the underground expansion missions are touch and go. However, a sniper in Spider armor, or the Archon Knight Armour is BAD. ASS.

    If I had to take a squad of one class, it would be Rangers. Blade master, run and gun, BladeStorm, Untouchable, and Reaper.

    I never put Shadowstep on a Ranger. After playing with the Reapers in the expansion, I may have to change that.
    Finished my Commander run. This was very good advice. Blademaster Templar + Blademaster Ranger on a late game ambush mission was just ridiculous. Pure L-O-L fun.

    Also got a sniper with ~130 aim, shredder, and holo-targeting, which was also OP.

    Eager to try Legendary next, or maybe an Commander ironman run.

    You guys are amaze-balls. I couldn't beat the game once, even on the easiest difficulty.

    I am too stupid for that game.

    Blade master Reaper: Oh, it’s my turn. I’m gonna kill you, ok now you, and now you, and now you and, oh wait, don’t think I can kill you with my blade. Let me introduce you to my storm gun.

    LOL. I had a lot of good fights but I think my favorite mission was one with a sitrep that limited you to a squad of 3. I chose a Blademaster, Specialist Medic (carrying the Warlord's assault rifle) and a Psi Op. Was really nervous about it, thinking it'd be hard, wondering if I chose the right classes.

    First turn: Pull 2 pods by accident. Blademaster kills 3 mobs without breaking a sweat, thanks to Inspire and Teamwork. Psi guy mind controls an advent officer, who becomes immediately everyone's favorite target. I don't remember what I had the Specialist do, except the remaining enemies were dead on turn #2 and nobody on my side got shot.

    That was my first real hint that Reaper/Bladestorm/Implacable/Untouchable miiiiiiiiight be a little OP.

    ...and so will Mileena. My hope is that she is fully clothed and anatomically correct like the rest of the ladies, if nothing else than to watch the incel gamergaters have a collective stroke.

    Completed Resident Evil VII. Been playing for 20 hours which is not what is advertised online. I guess I took it real slow.

    Really weird how I was bursting at the seams with ammo and weapons at the end, except I didn't need them. That seems to contradict the notion of a survival horror game.

    Shades of Aliens towards the end, terrible final boss fight, but I was relieved. Not because the game didn't deliver for me on the whole, but because I get to start something new.

    So Call of Duty: Modern Warfare it is. Just a quick, fast-paced, rootin' tootin', slambang, pull no punches action extravaganza. Lol.

    I'm halfway considering not buying Cyberpunk 2077 because of all this crunch stuff.

    The lead dude at CD Projekt Red said earlier in the year that he is hugely against crunch time and no matter what happens he would never employ it there.

    And then he employed it there lol

    Not only that but he spoke on the staff's behalf and said that they all were happy to do it and wanted to, but it's come out that they weren't even asked.
