    Ghost of Tsushima

    Can't really call this a review thread because I'm nowhere near done yet, but a friend bought me a copy of this game and I've been playing it little by little. I didn't follow the leadup to this game and wouldn't count myself among those excited for its release but I will say that I haven't been this pleasantly surprised by a game release in a long time. I don't think it will have as large of an impact on those of you who regularly play action games, however. From what I hear, its combat draws from the Batman Arkham (spelling?) games and the map exploration takes some cues from recent Fallout, Farcry, InFamous, Assassin's Creed, -type games. The thing is that I don't play those...the closest would be Elder Scrolls and the last time I played that was the month of Skyrim's release. I'm not burnt out on this style of gameplay and progression so it all feels fresh and exciting to me, I'm having a blast filling in the map and clearing every little sidequest and activity.

    I'll report back when I finish it but I'm having some problems with my PS4 or power outlet (not sure which) so I can't play for more than a few minutes before my breaker trips and everything shuts off. It'll be a while until I get around to opening up my PS4 and doing repairs or testing the power outlet with other consoles/devices.

    I really want to get that game but the problem is there's too many damn games coming out that is going to eat up my money (Serious Sam 3, Cyberpunk 2077 among others). I've been debating to get either this or Nioh 2 for my samurai fix and it's been tough for me to decided but I have a friend whose been playing and he immensely enjoys it. I heard the combat actually has depth to it and can be quite challenging. People say the stealth stuff is the closest we'll ever get to a modern Tenchu. I'd go the stealthy route but I'm not a dishonorable pig so it'd be straight up combat all the way.

    Glad to hear you've been enjoying it! Hope to hear more of your thoughts on it soon.

    The game is essentially Assassin's Creed but with different (in some cases better) aspects to it. If you like any kind of stealth mode games, then you will enjoy it. I haven't played it but I have watched plenty of people playing it and it looks like a solid game. People who are hating on it are probably the same people who complain about there not being enough female lead roles in video games (which is obviously not true for those of us who are familiar with games lol).

    It's a 2nd party developed game for PS4. Sony bought Sucker Punch some years ago and a lot of their games in the past either didn't come out on other platforms or took several years to do so. for the past 2 years Sony has been more open to releasing games on PC and I believe that this will be one of those at some point down the line but there has been no word just yet. Just one more example of PC getting BLOWN OUT.

    Joking, if it wasn't obvious. For the past 3 months 99% of my playtime has been on PC: RuneScape, Dead by Daylight, and VR Chat. When something is better on PC I play on PC, if I fear that it'll release in a busted state on PC or if I want to make sure I own the disc, I get it for console. I don't take part in the console war/PC vs console thing. Caring how other people play their games is a waste of time.
