I just remembered another one. Homeland. I watched it all the way up to the point where they finished the Brody storyline. I liked the show for what it was and I felt the story was endearing. But with season 4, I think, they changed the format into something that wasn't as interesting to watch for me. What really did it was when they had killed the one person I found interesting throughout the season, the kid that was trying to escape Syria.

Finished my FFXIV i270 gear.  Yay!

4 hours into Tales of Berseria, and it's just so...bland.  Looks like a PS3 game, the characters are dull, the story is mostly 'meh', the music is entirely unremarkable, and the combat feels button mashy as hell.  Not sure I'll hang on to this one, but also not sure what I want to play instead.

Kinda itching for an MMO, but jumping into something new with only a few weeks to play before the FFXIV xpac seems rather counterproductive.  I have 4 MMOs that I have toons near max level and didn't finish, but re-learning an MMO after being away for a long time is blech.

Maybe it's time to pick through the huge list of games I've picked up in various Steam sales and never actually tried.  Or find something entirely random...

Just finished the game with 34 hours played.  Really enjoyed the game and was a great surprise.  I did mix/match my skills quite a bit but there were a ton of skill trees I didn't even start so I may try a 2nd play through. 

Although I did enjoy the combat I wish they could have taken this concept of being stranded on a space ship and not have any combat just exploration and complex puzzles.  I guess an indie game would have to do that since no big company would be willing to take that chance.

I played a fair amount of Destiny when it was released but lost interest due to the repetitiveness of the game play, I'll probably give D2 a try but on PC as the console versions are locked at 30fps even on PS4 PRO and by the time its released I'll probably have upgraded to a to a 1080ti. /fingerscrossed

I find it hard to answer since I've bailed on so much tv in the past two years.  I put down Quantico for my response, I liked the idea somewhat and the lead actress with that long dark hair was in all ways my type but the story lines involving rookie FBI agents was too over the top for me.

For me the more interesting question is what TV programs have you not bailed on but should?  Two immediately come to mind. 

First up "The Walking Dead"
  • Zombie attacks are pointless for the most part and I'll ffwd past them as nobody of note ever seems to get off'ed and there is no suspense to the final outcome
  • Tired of the constant switching between locations during a season and the timeline of the season being a week or so
  • Rehashing the basic story over and over, get to new place, find friends, find enemies, lose new place to massive zombie attack, next season
  • No actual plan beyond survival, what is the end game here?  If it's just more of the same thing why do I need to see anymore?
  • Related to the location switches, some main characters disappear for long parts of the season and may as well be dead, no spoiler because who knows who reads these things but the death of a main character is lessened when some other main players are off screen for such a long time I'm like "hmm is ** dead?  eh does it matter anyways?

So why stick around?  Not sure but I can watch an hour long episode of TWD in about 10 minutes or less stopping only for certain characters I like to watch still.

Second is "The Big Bang Theory"
No need for a list on this one, it just isn't funny at all anymore.  No funny nerd culture jokes, no cool science jokes etc.  I guess I stick with it just because I am curious to see how low it can go (relative to me of course, it still seems to be popular overall)

een trying to get into Torment: Tides of Numenera, but am really struggling with it.  I think the main issue is that by the time I get a chance to play a game in the evenings, I'm usually pretty close to exhausted.  Trying to process a game that's so dialog and detail-heavy just kinda makes my brain shut down.  I really want to like it, but I having a hard time finding the energy to really dig in.
I have been having the same issue. I have loved the setting since Numenera originally dropped, as well as the game's story, combat, character options, soundtrack, and visuals...just not actually playing the game. On the way to one story objective you find three more, and you have to listen to very persons entire life story on the likely offchance that something in there will be a crucial advantage. The waves of text coming at you make it feel like a chore to play.

Tomorrow is boardgame day.  That, and studying.
I'm gonna head to this boardgame thing and meet Isgrimnur.  :D   I suspect a few other GT folks will be there as well. 

I'm playing Endless Space 2 this weekend as well.   So far so good, if you like 4X games.   A few bugs though...

At this point I might try and go for the platinum, I'm only missing the 80 side quest trophy and the trophies tied to getting your skills to level 10.
You beat the Adamantoise before finishing the story?  How long did it take?

Like I said above, I only really appreciated the combat system once I started working though some of the post game content.  I still like XII better for combat.  I really liked the materia system in VII, but that might just be nostalgia.

Oh and I guess there's a shot I will get to do the boardgame thing, but my wife is working 3am-7am both Saturday and Sunday and she isn't feeling well, so it seems kind of unfair.
