Weekend Gamer: What are you playing?


Another weekend is about to start but that is hard to tell since the normal Friday routine is no longer normal. The upside to being home all the time means more time to figure out which game to play next. What are you playing?

Thinking of skipping Animal Crossing for the Switch and pulling the trigger on Doom Eternal. It looks like a good way to spend the weekend.

Also, I like the direction Pantheon is going with the Shaman as explained in their stream yesterday.

Been playing:

Doom Eternal - when everything is clicking, it's one of the best games ever. But when it is being a pain in the ass, it's a pain in the ass. I think Doom 2016 is a better game as far as overall "fun" goes, but Eternal is both amazing and extremely frustrating at the same time. I am only playing on "normal" whatever they call it, and there are sections where I am simply annoyed as hell, tactics and fun go out the window. I am wondering if it is better using a controller, but I play shooters with m/kb, and am almost at the end, can't really change it up now.

Resident Evil 3 Remake - This game, like RE2 Remake, is fooking amazing. It is beautiful, and the gameplay is awesome. I am just loving every minute with it, 4 hours in.

Still playing the hell out of Slay the Spire, and some Modern Warfare.

I'll probably play more DOOM Eternal. I doubt I can drag myself away to try anything else. It's not as good as the last game because it's so different, but it's still a good game on it's own.

Though, no matter what jumping puzzles still suck.

Caved and picked up Doom Eternal - Its ok, but dont understand the hype. Maybe it gets better. Seems to gimmicky, constantly running out of ammoa, being forced to do glory kills and usechainsaw to get more health/ammo. Dont seem like it requires as much skill. Before i had a weapon, now i have to check is my flamethrower on cooldown? is my grenade launcher on cooldown? do I have a bloodshot charged up? And what the fuck is with the platforming. Eh

More HOTS, also more HOTS

Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord for me. It's in early access, but I loved warband, and it is more of the same.

Finished Eternal on ultra violence last weekend and loved every minute of it. It is a game with a "right" way to play it, but that right way to play it is fucking awesome.

I found the "right" way to play it was to go back and play DOOM 2016 and pretend it was the sequel we deserved.

Totally agree that jumping puzzles suck. The only thing they are good for is me entertaining my friends at how bad I am at them.
