Weekend Gamer: What are you playing?
 

Football will be in full force this weekend. But does that really matter? NO! What matter is what games are you playing?

I've been logging some time on the NES the last few days, and I don't see that changing this weekend.

I downloaded the demo of solasta. Suppose to be very D&D 5e type of thing. Gonna give it a whirl.

Also I got nfl game pass so I probably play Gems of war (PC) or some other casual game while watching football.

Go Pack! Yes, we finally have a defense!

Also, my son was featured in the local paper for his game tonight as the player to watch.

Can't wait for his game tonight!

The Division 2 and Space Run: Galaxy.

Been playing the hell out of Apex Legends this past week, and that will most likely not change this weekend.

Path of Tower Defense is on the agenda, but I'm avoiding the new league like the plague. Don't mix my damned aRPG with tower defense, Tencent!

The other team was ranked 2nd in the entire State of Wisconsin.

Our boys played them tough.

Here's my boy looking badass.

So 50th or so in Texas? ;)

Serious question: You don't have a problem with football for kids with all we know about impact trauma on the brain from the sport? I no longer support it myself for anyone under legal age to make the decision to damage their brain with concussive car-crash forces. In fact, I'd ban it all through K-12 myself. Pros can do what they want as free adults, colleges should dump the sport because it's a freaking religion and a misplaced focus from academics.

Playing the wait for the ok to be transferred with the wife back home from Toronto mount Sinai hospital since Canadas healthcare system is a fucking joke.

I started playing Gears of War 5. It's a total chore to play it. Nothing original or innovative. The level designs are boring and the textures are washed out looking and muddy. I've been playing with the video settings and even with ultra textures installed and everything set to High, the game still just looks like ass. It looks like some old Xbox 360 game. It's like they did nothing to improve the technology at all.

The gamplay is the same. Shoot from cover. Lancer chainsaw. *Yawn*

I loved this series, it's such a shame to see it dragged down by bad character art and pointless identity politics.

This and Halo should be the crowning titles in the Xbox lineup and it's another forgettable bore. I honestly just want to stop playing and go back to Days Gone or Spider-Man. Both of which have better gameplay and better art. If I want to just shoot the same enemies from cover over and over, I could be playing The Division 2 or if I wanted decent shooting, I could check out whatever the heck they are doing in Destiny 2.

So disappointing. I was such a massive Gears of War fan and the Coalition just doesn't have the talent for this franchise. It needs to be handed off to Bungie or one of the Call of Duty studios or something.

I've been playing Astral Chain over the past several days. I think the reviews are unwarrantedly kind. It's middlin' to good with far too many annoying bits. It's worth finishing.

That's my review.

Playing Gears 5.

I started the first few hours on Xbox One X. Then once it finished downloading moved to PC. The beginning of the game is pretty typical, but after a few hours it reminds me more of the Mad Max game. You have missions to attack, but there are other places to explore with your vehicle. Also on PC in 4K I ain't joking it is definitely a modern game that is a looker.

Also playing Control. This game is awesome I just wish they released it a month earler so it was all I could play.

Beat Blair Witch in about 6 hours. That game is the SHIT. I felt like I was in a Blair Witch movie. The only negatives were getting lost in the dark forest a bit and occasional framerate issues. But it is a really cool game.

I have Gears 5 installed on both the PC and XBone. I have yet to play any of it.
Evil, (and anyone eles) we should try hoard together sometime.

Good deal, I mostly love Horde, though due to their stats being down, I played like 48 levels of it yesterday and didn't get a single XP or reward. It's obvious my PC can't keep up with the textures in the single player portion (seems fine in Horde though). A shame, I wanted to see the game even if it isn't that great so far. I'm not upgrading my PC at this point, not with the PS5 coming out in a few months.

My PC is getting long in the tooth too. No Max settings for me. I got the game for Horde.
