y'know, 1 sad thing about Fortnite... I haven't read all of this yet but I am 99.9999% sure they are NOT talking about the part of the game I actually liked, which was originally the main game.  Most people forgot that even existed.  There's probably people that work at that company that forgot the "save the world" part is a thing.

Not to give too much credit to that list as it has quite a few WTF's on it, but seeing MGSV on it just makes me wonder if I would feel any differently about the game if I gave it another shot now. It's been a few years since the disappointment of it turning out to not be a Metal Gear game. Then again, every time I see more Death Stranding footage it makes me feel even more secure in my initial thought that Kojima has lost his touch. I couldn't force myself to finish it and it felt like the only good aspect of it was the gameplay.

Personal bias aside, I find it strange that DCUO and Warframe aren't on the list considering it's a top 30.  In all fairness, I've only played like one or two others on the list, but both of these were born near the start of the decade and are still going.  They're both grindy as hell, and DCUO is becoming pay-to-win, but the fact that they've been here damn near the entire decade speaks quite loudly IMO.  Then again, it might just be me.

One odd omission is Borderlands 2... these lists are always subjective but come on; that's considered one of the greatest in the history of the "looter shooter" genre... in fact it was the Borderlands franchise that truly popularized and made that a thing in the first place....and B2 was superior to the first game in just about every way, imo.

 

On another note---Ninja Warriors Once Again is out now on Switch!

Soon... 10/29 is the day Vampyr finally hits Switch

 

My favorite scenes are of course quite the spoiler...ha, I can't even drop a vague hint about it because of how major that scene I'm thinking about it....but mannnnnnn I had to sit back and just revel in the awesomeness in that moment.....ok it involves a certain character showing up out of nowhere, and it was huge deal....it was a jaw-dropper when this character showed up, man.  

 

...another favorite was a scenario where one of your options on how to proceed involved turning a certain person you were confronting.  This game, man... basically it was everything I've ever wanted in a vampire game, and someone finally produced it.  This game was a dream come true for me.

 

This showed up in my recommendations....interesting (my baby Deb Ann Woll is into D&D stuff??!?! *nutted ):

nah I haven't heard anything yet; I'm hoping for the best... that it is at least decent/ok in terms of how it runs.  Vampyr doesn't really seem to push the graphical limitations of XB1 or PS4 though, so I'm optimistic that the Switch version won't look/run drastically different in a negative way.

 

Earlier yesterday the new characters have finally hit GEARS 5:

https://www.gears5.com/operation-1-characters?fbclid=IwAR3iiZvG9CVbC6qdPEWkItGscXTwexPnXSRh5JHgQRZu2WkQKqILIjES-n4

 

Basically you can get COG Gear ( 🙄) and a "DeeBee" as new hero characters...and General Raam and a noticeably shrunken "Warden" as villain characters...they can either be earned in the game by straight up buying them OR completing certain objectives (this is surprising, considering the modern era of everything being monetized)  COG Gear is a lame generic choice for a character, imo....BUT in December there will be an "Onyx Guard" skin variant for him so that kinda redeems it for me.

 

Oh, and 2 more Terminator characters are in now...but those cost money... at first this sounds potentially cool....UNTIL you realize these are "Dark Fate" characters we're talking about....yes, they put that "tall MacCauly Culkin" looking girl in there and the "REV-9", which is apparently the name of the new dark-grey Terminator, who always looks like a piece of his head is missing for some reason.  I realize this is a text-book case of "cross-promotion" going on here, but I would definitely prefer other characters from that world... like perhaps the T800 with Arnold's likeness; the 1984 version preferably... or the T-1000, or Kyle Reese, or Terminatrix (Kristanna Loken) , or younger T2-version Sarah Connor.

 

EDIT---- There is also a Terminator special Horde mode going on from now to 10/29… as you might guess the whole mode is about your squad vs. the machines…so you fight a legion of T800s, REV9s + the other robotic enemies in the game…and it is only 20 waves. (*which might be a bonus for those who complain about 50 waves being too long)

sheeeitttt, I'm still hooked on Gears Horde modes...went to 50 twice last night thru to this morning; leveling up various things.  Jack is such an easy character it's crazy... the only problematic situation is when there's an Ice Scion....that's easily the most dangerous enemy for Jack, imo.  Once you start getting hit by that cryo cannon it's basically over, since the freezing effect naturally slows you down...you don't really have much chance in flying away from it...effectively this becomes the Gears/shooter equivalent of a "touch of death combo".  With your speed drastically impaired by the first hit of the freezing effect, you cannot get away from the rest of it; you're in for a ride on every last bit of that damage and getting downed then.  *Sometimes* I've been able to get away if I was already on the very edge of the Scion's range though.
....and of course a good, productive ultimate is always satisfying; on wave 50 of this last run I used it at such a perfect time, getting sooo much juicy damage on the boss (and possibly the kill; there was so much going on I already forgot) then killed some regular enemies that were left.  So far Jack also has the most fun and interesting ultimate move, at least imo.

 

ohhhh shit... leaks???

cheh,

I enjoy Gears 5, but I would agree with the lack of multiplayer content being quite disappointing...this along with the server issues that popped up today pushed me back to Gears 4 so I could start having more fun again...was in one hell of a Horde session with a random team where 2 quit but the 3 of us that remained continued on for quite a while, despite a having a terribly inadequate base (a combination of things but I'd take most of the blame since on this alt profile my engineer was still a fresh level 2, with only 1 skill card)...oddly enough these factors that made it a struggle also made it more of a thrill...enemies swarming in from all sides because we were set up in a bad spot of the map...and only 3 of us with barely any fortifications....the shit was awesome, man...

...it also appears they left bonus xp in effect, since my engineer went straight from 2 to level 9 just in that one session.

anyway, yeah they need to pick up the pace with the multiplayer content in part 5 for sure... I imagine it's probably a bit embarrassing in the industry if you release a sequel....and yet while it's still new... the fanbase is gradually going BACK to the previous game since they're having more fun with that.

 

meanwhile----Borderlands 3 stuff!

it's that time to laugh at Bethesda once again

 

Oddly enough, even though a certain friend I've mentioned  before has unbelievably bad taste....and yep he did buy Fallout 76----I doubt he will be on board for this....at least one of the things we're on the same page about is the very concept of paying repeatedly for 1 game; he agrees that's some pretty stupid shit.  (*oh another quick example---he's very much into that game ARK too...I also bought it on a whim but ended up regretting that purchase... that game is just so awkward, clunky and stupid, man...I at least got some entertainment value out of the fact that your character occasionally has to shit...and you can decide to shit or it will just happen at some point whether you like it or not...ha, until then I've never played a game where your character can shit on him/herself....and they show it too; you can see the shit on the ground!🤣

This fabulous saga continues!  I was also thinking to myself the other day --"watch...the so-called private-worlds will NOT be so private...and that infinite stash WILL be fucked up somehow... just watch.." and boom here we are, folks

 

🤣 this is GOLD, Jerry...

 

 

and there’s so many layers to the comedy here… one thing is that I’m sure this fiasco is actually helping Outer Worlds sell even more

 

edit—ooooh, now to check out the forums; for some reason it never occurred to me to actually check in on that game’s forums to see the juicy commentary from the fans…oooooh dis gone be good 🤣
ok yeah I’m bookmarking the F76 gamefaqs board; it’s sure to be some fannnnntastic reading entertainment going on there 🤩

oh hell yeah... Necromancer is one of my top picks in D3... I'm hoping they'll bring him back again for part 4.  It works as my "kinda vampire...close enough" character, basically.  The last few times I played, I was using a full Trag'Oul's set build for him, using a lot of that corpse skill that makes them crawl over and explode on enemies + constant blood/skeletal mage summons....huge damage there, and the survivability is great.

 

One complaint I keep seeing from Gears fans that just hits me as odd... the flashbang grenades... I keep thinking---It's *SUPPOSED* to be some annoying shit.  A stun grenade's purpose is to disorient the hell out of the targets while the squad moves in....what, they think it should just be a minor nuisance that is shrugged off in exactly 1 second?  C'mon now, bruh... in real life I doubt that's a "pleasant" experience being hit with a stun grenade sort of thing.
