So... I have yet to play Total War: Warhammer II, as my sister, our friends, and I haven't been able to get a game going due to the schedules not quite lining up yet. But I did get through a bit of my backlog, namely Ghostrunner. This game is amazing if you're a fan of movement shooters, because it's basically a movement shooter like Titanfall 2, but with melee combat over shooting combat and the game being built as a platformer. The story isn't the strongest, sure, but that's not why you play that particular game. Honestly considering going for 100% on it.

I've also recently been dipping my toes back into MH Rise, as I haven't touched it for a bit in favor of some other games my friends have been playing, and it is definitely still a really good Monster Hunter game. Hell yeah.

Also been playing some Vermintide 2 lately, working on one of the hardest levels in the game and it is just kicking my group's ass. Still fun af though.

And, last but definitely not least, I found a complete in box copy of Pokemon Platinum, which I've been searching for in order to add to my collection for literal years. My personal favorite in the series, hands down, in the original box with the original documentation and manual. It cost me about $160 US before tax, but it was well worth it for the nostalgia and to have a physical copy of what is, in my opinion, the best Pokemon game ever released.

Been playing Might and Magic 8 Merge Mod, which is a mod created by some galaxy brained crazy person that somehow merged M&M 6/7/8 into a single game using the M&M8 engine. No idea how they did it, or what autistic black magic 4th dimension coding they used to do something so demanding for no gain, but it is flooding me with nostalgia and frustration. Nostalgic frustration, but in a good way. Ahh childhood. When the most complicated task of my week was figuring out how to push a hidden puke green switch on a puke green wall behind a barrier while being attacked by wraiths and skeletons to retrieve a nameless crystal for reasons I cannot discern.

I'm getting back into modded Skyrim because why play a new game when you can play a decades old game over, and over, and over again.

Been playing the diagnostic game w/ getting New World to run properly on my rig - ran fine in the Alpha but now get random crashes (full system power cut) in certain areas in the beginning.  Don't want to chance frying my GPU which fortunately has maxed out at 55-60c (benefits of a full cover waterblock on my GPU).  So far this is the only title to cause this out of my large backlog of games.

If you are lucky enough have one of the higher end GPUs to come out in recent years, be careful with that game. I don't know if it's just on the Nvidia 3090s and 3080s, or if it's the entire 3000 series, or if it even applies to Radeon GPUs, but I have seen some troubling stuff recently that New World can actually brick those GPUs. It's one of the few new games I would recommend playing on a less powerful GPU just in case. I would recommend looking into it more and not taking my word on it at any sort of face value, since there's articles and videos that can go into much more detail than I can given that I only heard of the issue recently, don't know much about it since I don't plan to play New World and haven't looked into it that deeply, and I'm at work and can't access anything to look into it further right now.

TL;DR: I've heard New World is bricking some higher end GPUs, I don't know any more than that so look into it further if you're running one.

Just got my PS5 for a month but only been playing PS4 titles except for FIFA21  :p

I play a lot of Destiny 2 and of course, dropping into Verdansk every once in awhile  :))

Honestly, if I were to get a console other than my Switch, it would be a PS5. I have a PC, so all of the exclusives I would want from Xbox are already available to me, and I have a Switch for the Nintendo titles. I don't have a lot of games I would get for the console, honestly, but I would definitely use it for Bloodborne, God of War, Demon's Souls, and the new Sackboy game (I know it's not the greatest, but hey, it's a new 3D platformer from a AAA publisher other than Nintendo in today's market, which is great, and they included music from one of my favorite bands, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. I'm kinda obligated to play it lol). There's a few more I can't think of at the moment, but those are the main ones.

Currently, though, I'm trying to focus on a move and finally finishing up Monster Hunter: World. Need those Fatalis and AT Velkhana sets added to my arsenal before I consider myself done with that game, and that's not counting that I want every layered armor.
