More Personal 5 for me. I am 60 hours into the game and am a week away from finishing off the fourth story mission and unlocking Futaba as a confident.

NIOH, the combat is quick, fluid, and easily approached for newcomers, even though the game still stays true to an unforgiving "souls-like" experience. Brutal difficulty aside, I like to compare it more to bloodborn's combat since that's the superior option for fluidity in combat compared to dark souls. It's had me rage and even turn the game off a couple times, but I feel as though the payoff is really great just to experience more of the stellar combat system they've given us in the game.

That is definitely NIOH's strength. I can't stand games like Dark Souls or Bloodborn, but I absolutely loved NIOH. You just always felt like a bad ass because the combat is so fluid and responsive. Dying feels less punishing as you do not feel as robbed by the mechanics as you do from other games of its type.

Endless Space 2, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and maybe a little time on the Switch. Need to jump back into Xenoblade 2.

Picked up a Switch. So looks like it'll be some Odyssey, Mario Kart, and maybe download Darkest Dungeon for it.

It was a WONDERFUL game, up until I hit the first fat boss fight. Totally unbeatable even with online strategies.

Why do they have to ruin amazing games with STUPID levels of difficulty?

All true up until the first fat boss fight at the end of that wooden pier. Fuck that shit.
