I'm in the thick of two RPG's, which is never a good idea.  I think I'm getting near the end of Bravely Second, as I just got the typical "you can't go back after this point.  Do everything you need to before proceeding." message.  Given the first game, however, that probably just means I've hit the point where I have to replay the entire game a second time.  slywink

I'm also still thoroughly enjoying Sword Coast Legends on PC.  I wholly acknowledge it's an average game at best, but something about it has just clicked with me.Of all the recent isometric CRPG's, this one is by far my favorite.  I admit that that's a lot due to sentiment, as it reminds me so much of the first Neverwinter Nights, which a game that brings back very fond memories (both as a game and that for that particular point of my life in general).   

I really need to finish one or both of these before June 6, when the big FF XIV 3.3 patch drops.   ninja

I might diddle a bit more with Overwatch, but so far it hasn't really grabbed a hold of me. 

I'm actually having more fun with the TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan game, so will probably play more of that.  So far I've only been playing the multiplayer and it's a fun distraction, if not amazing.

Do it, you know you want to.  smile

I will say that enjoyment of SCL is entirely dependent upon your expectations.  If you want an accurate representation of the D&D ruleset in a deep & engaging game with a robust story...you will be sorely disappointed (hence most of the nerdrage directed at it).  If you don't mind a simplified version of the rules mixed with a light dungeon crawl, there's absolutely fun to be had here.

Take a look at this review, which I think is 100% spot on.

After plowing through two Uncharted games in the last couple of weeks, I needed a little break from the series. So even though I'm still chipping away at Uncharted 3, I picked up Far Cry: Primal.

I've been having a ton of fun with it. I was expecting a re-skin of FC4, and I was OK with that, but I've been pleasantly surprised at how the time period/setting have added enough uniqueness to make it feel like its own beast. I really liked going around crafting upgrades and getting new skills in the previous game, and this game just throws tons more of that kind of stuff at you. So it was really right up my alley. Shooting cavemen in the head with a bow is a highly recommended delight.

If you haven't gotten too far, I would suggest going back and starting over on the Survival setting.  I was skeptical of losing my progress but to me it felt like that really gave the collecting and crafting a real purpose, and I had constant reason to hunt and get more meat and things.

I thought I was just about finished with Bravely Second...no such luck.  After nearly restarting the game due to overly vague instructions, I have now hit the "go back and replay everything you've already played" portion of the game.  Not sure if I'm up for that or not...it wasn't all that interesting the first time around.

Made some good progress in Sword Coast Legends, and I think I'm on the homestretch there (just got to the Duergar city).  Still surprised at how much I'm enjoying this.  I can absolutely see why others hated it, but it's exactly the kind of CRPG I was looking for right now.

Ran a few dailies in FFXIV, and am now only one accessory short of a full set of i230 gear.  Got it all melded with Grade V materia as well, so my Bard is a walking, singing dealer of death.  I should have that final piece this week...right in time for the 3.3 patch which will probably introduce a higher set of gear.   crybaby

Best Buy had the "Day 1 Edition" of Dragon Quest Heroes:  The Earth Tree's Woe and the Blight Below for $30 today, so I picked that up as well.  I don't have much familiarity with either Dragon Quest (the only one I've really played is 8 ) or musou games (I played one of the Dynasty Warriors games way back on PS2, but that's it), so I'm coming in fairly blind.  Played a few hours and while it's certainly not a deep game, it just oozes personality and is lots of fun (ridiculous name aside).   I don't know how much longevity it'll have as I can see the button mashing getting rather tiresome, but it's been surprisingly enjoyable so far.

I played a bit of Overwatch and had some good success with Mercy.  The usual problem happens, though, where you get stuck with the role of medic because nobody else plays one, or if they do they are terrible.  So I didn't get to try out much else.

I played a few hours of TMNT and continue to have fun.  There were some matchmaking problems over the weekend at times so I played some single player as well.  It's the same maps but not quite as fun without real other players since the other turtles are controlled by AI.  But there are a ton of moves to unlock and lots of upgrades, so it's pretty cool. 

I also played a bit more of Dirty Bomb since they are having an event right now.  That game is still quite fun, despite it's terrible card loadout system.

And finally I just started Bound By Flame, which seems cool in the hour I got to play.

Still playing Battleborn but it's bleeding players badly.  Sad as I love the game and I have no interest in Overwatch.  Just don't see the appeal, but my taste in games have changed lately


Anyway, I'll probably will be switching gears soon from Battleborn

I ended up playing Overwatch for over 12 hours from Saturday to Monday with my brother. That is a lot of gaming for me compared to normal lately.  Such a fun experience.  There are about 7-8 characters I really enjoy.
