I played a lot of Call of Duty: Vanguard, Teamfight Tactics, Chivarly 2, and Civilzation VI over the weekend. You can check out my streams on Twitch.tv.
Or on Facbeook: https://www.facebook.com/KingDankKush

Also, if any of you have experience in streaming, in particular with Streamlabs OBS, I would love to get some recommendations on how to set everything up properly. I'm pretty new to all of this. Options seem unlimited.

Played some Odyssey after giving up on ps2 emulation.

For the time i've been playing, there was this odd thing with the AI. They were a pain in the arse, and i figured out why. Usually, i just switch off when i have to do the fort sections, but noticed it over the weekend that they always replace an AI you kill with another. This means there's no real tactics. You can't selectively clear out a base because the game will always bring AI closer to you! So you end up just clearing it out regardless... I literally cleared the entire base bar 2 guys attached to a quest doing this over, and over.
The AI attacking it's own friendly AI sums up how complex the AI is.

I think MGS has spoilt me on what to expect from infiltration missions, and the AI around them lol

I'm still playing through God of War on PC. About to start Chapter 10. Might play a bit more of Horizon Zero Dawn on PC as well. The main game I want to play this weekend is Crusader Kings III as the Royal Courts DLC just came out. You can catch me streaming these games on my Twitch.

So, from now on (until I'm finished) I'll be playing Horizon Forbidden West. And I think I'll do a "completionist" playthrough for my first playthrough, just like I did with the first game.

Unfortunately I didn't quite manage to finish Kingdoms of Amalur, but I think I'm pretty close to the end. I'll have to finish it up after I'm finished with HFW.

Jealous. I wish I could play Forbidden West this weekend. Instead, I'll be wrapping up my playthrough of God of War on PC and then starting a new playthrough of Cyberpunk 2077. Thinking of doing the Corpo route this time (started as Nomad in my first playthrough).

I tried out the trial version of Cyberpunk on PS5 today and I actually think it looks promising so far. I like what I've seen so far. I haven't encountered any major bugs or glitches so far and the game feels quite smooth in performance mode. I started a Nomad character, but I think I'll start a Steet Kid character if I get the full version, which I think I will, since it's 50% off right now on PlayStation Store.

Started my second playthrough of cyberpunk. Kinda odd because i never really had any major bugs the first time through, so it's just playing the exact same as before :ROFLMAO:
At the very least its nice having the knowledge that the game is more stable regardless! Went with a nomad start.

I also downloaded the demo for the game Chorus, that they recently added to the (PS) store, so I'm probably going to check that out too.

I just started a thread about Horizon Forbidden West in the Community Reviews & Opinions section. If you want you can check it out and add your opinions and thoughts in that thread as well.

I just tried the demo and I don't know if I like it or not. It's hard to tell if the demo was just badly designed or if the game simply didn't click for me. The demo starts with a tutorial video where they show you all the controls and expect you to rememeber everything basically. Then you're thrown into a mission and I don't know how far into the game it is, I'm guessing it's pretty early, judging it by what they talk about and what happens. But it also kind of felt like they dropped you off in the deep end of the pool. The controls felt good overall, but I definitely struggled a bit with the fights that I experienced. I don't think I will get this game at full price, but later down the line in a sale, who knows.

Before i get too much into my cyberpunk playthough, i figure i should finish Odyssey. So hopefully i can get that out of the way this weekend! Looked up the mission i am on and i don't have too long to go it seems... but who knows with this game. Could end up spending hours running across the map.

I'm not too sure if it's supposed to be a big reveal, but im pretty sure i know who the head cult member is at this point. Managed to whittle them down to just the inner ring, and the clues about the last member kinda point to only one person. So hopefully im wrong and i get that skywalker moment - i think i deserve it given the time investment this game asks for!

Finished Odyssey! Finally! Got the awkward family ending!

Sadly, the super secret final bad guy was exactly who i thought it'd be, which was kind of a let down. I apparently got one of the DLC's free, but i'll do that some other time. Wanna do my second Cyberpunk run through. Burned too many weekends on Odyssey already.

The only game I'll be playing for the forseeable future is Elden Ring. Got up passed level 50, so now I'm actually starting to explore the open world and fighting some of the bosses. It's a tough game for sure, but still having fun.

I had a couple games in-between stuff this week, so was feeling it today!

Finally got a win on the hardest difficulty!

I've come close before, but got some BS that one hit KO'd me. Smashed it this time! I swear the hardest difficulty uses inverse luck or something...

I wanna pick up Elden Ring, but i hear people are going off-grid after they start, so kinda scared :ROFLMAO:

Probably will be playing Elden Ring again this weekend. Just got passed level 140. I also picked up the Witch Queen expansion for Destiny 2 and Genshin Impact.

I was gunna join everyone else in isolation and pick up Elden Ring for this weekend, but found out they don't support ultrawides and using any workaround means sucking the banhammer lol

A little disappointed. I've played really old titles i thought would be 16:9 but rendered to the screen properly at 21:9, only constraining the HUD to 16:9. Hopefully they have something in the works to fix. From Soft's PC ports continue the trend i guess...

I'll probably continue my new stroll through night city. Was finding it so damn hard this time around until i remembered they nerfed the mod upgrades. On my first playthrough you could mod yourself into an actual walking tank, so i upped the difficulty to hardest otherwise the enemies just tickled. Put it back down to normal so don't have to fight for my life every time i get in a fight lol.

Just like the people playing Elden Ring, I feel like I've also kind of gone into isolation, but with Horizon Forbidden West. I'm over half way through now and I have to stop myself from playing it too much, otherwise life stuff might not get done. ;)
