Just beat Shovel Knight's Specter of Torment. I didn't enjoy it as much as Plague Knight's campaign, but it was a decent way to spend a night. But man, some of the frustrating parts really pushed my buttons in ways I don't think even Dark Souls does (outside the DLC at least). I just couldn't get the movement down.
I finally got around to Cuphead. Let me tell ya, that game so lives up to the hype. It's amazing. From the visuals to game mechanics. Anyone here played it?

Just finished Mario Odyssey. It's okay I guess. Way too short.

True, but typically after finishing a game I lose motivation to do any post game stuff. I got 500 and did that really hard extra dungeon, and that really killed my enthusiasm.

My main problem is how the worlds are set out. Like typically you have to finish this main objective before the world opens up, but by then you've probably got enough moons to move to the next area. New Donk City has that really cool set piece at the start, but when the level opens up afterwards it's just kind of explore the city without the threat of danger.

I mean, it's a great game in all other aspects. I just wish there was more to do in each of the worlds on the initial story portion.

Sorry folks, but the game I have been playing is Overwatch in Mystery Heroes mode. It's like potato chips.... you can't play just one.

Yeah that's fair enough. I'm a bit of a completionist so I've been picking up most of the moons but I guess it's structured the way it is so even little kids can beat the game, the other stuff is just shoved in there for the adults.

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, 2nd playthrough, save scumming like hell. Mother of Zod, watching people die at the hands of those three jackasses broke me and I couldn't accommodate for that fracking Avatar Project.
Introducing Keisuke Watanabe to a notable voice actor of Freeza & a TTRPG player/actress is likely my crowning achievement in 2020.

Prey 2017 because Nightdive Studios has decided to further delay the System Shock reboot citing "we're in over our heads trying to make this game."

And I wanna be a good guy rather than the flimsy coward who went for that escape pod. That said, it felt f***ing good to kill a Nightmare again.

In KH2, I finished the Cavern Of Remberence. It was a pain in the ass at times, but I enjoyed most of the time.

Also, I think I love Lightning Farron(FFXIII). She's so cool!
