Picked up Yakuza 0 not too long ago, loving it so far.  Solid beat-em-up kinda gameplay, and it's got a really nice, oddly seamless blend between the main story being all super serious and the sidequests and minigames ranging from kinda silly to comedic gold.

 

Also Dragon Ball FighterZ has been my go-to fighty game since it came out, but I really wish Bandai-Namco would stop basking in their own hype long enough to fix some of the barely functional online matchmaking stuff, like Ring Matches.

I beat the 2013 reboot of Tomb Raider.  I liked it overall!  Lara's characterization was really good -- she's capable, but not at all used to the situations she's put into, so she freaks out but still gets it done.  I think the part that cinched it for me was when she climbed up that narrow crevasse by bracing herself against either side, but she really had to talk herself up first to boost her confidence/calm herself down.  Like, that's some Ninja Warrior level shit, and she didn't even train for it, so of course she's worried she can't do it -- but she has to do it, so she fuckin GETS IT DONE.

 

Also loved the bow + arrow sniping.

I'm almost done with Celeste on Switch and I love it.  The controls are extremely tight and I'm digging the story.

Finally getting around to playing Phoenix Wright. Having a pretty great time with it so far. Tina has 4 or 5 more of them on the shelf, I might just play the whole series.

 

I might get kicked out of Steel Samurai for saying this but...

Going crazy downloading emulators, think I may start working on Final Fantasy II PSP, I had started that right before I got sick. I finished Contra after about 60 deaths lol. I'm thinking about maybe trying Castlevania NES next, now that I know to use holy water on Death heh

Highly recommended.  There's not a bad game in the bunch.

Perhaps the same can be said of all birth control. But enough posting- have at you!

I've been playing a bunch of Final Fantasy 12 on PC lately. Up to cave palace now. The turbo feature really is quite nice to power through some of the longer travel sections like the Tchita Uplands.

The Zodiac job system is kind of a more significant change than I expected too.

I also didn't expect there to be any new music, so that was a nice surprise as well.

Yeah, I still haven't picked up Spirits of Justice, so I'm stuck with just my Illinois license for now.

I played a little bit of that Metal Gear Survive beta that's running right now. It's dense as hell. Menus after menus and a billion different resources.
Seems to play as well as MGSV did.

I don't give a shit about the multiplayer stuff at all and since that's what the beta is, I won't touch it any more than that, but I'm weirdly interested in the single player campaign.

Holy shit I finally put Skyrim to bed. I started a playthrough a couple of years ago and just got bored once I hit around level 30. The impact perk for destruction spells trivializes a lot of the base game content. Though I was only playing on normal, but hey. I'm not playing a good old fashioned CRPG for the challenge. Gimme dat lore and immersion. Decided it was time to clear it off the backlog. Crazy enough, this is the first Elder Scrolls game I've finished since Arena. I played a lot of Daggerfall and Oblivion but never finished them. I have yet to play Morrowind, which I know is a cardinal sin. Maybe one day.

 

Anyway, here are a couple of pics of my party. 

 

My PC is on the left in her tricked out dragonscale armor (top tier enchants, etc). Meet Brianna, Breton sorcerer - the Last Dragonborn. With her is her trusty and loyal companion Inigo in the dragonbone armor. And Lydia I guess....looking appropriately disinterested.

Spoiler

 

Here's a shot of Brianna on her spooky horse during the Dawnguard DLC.

Loved the game for the most part. Besides getting bored, I think I quit because the scenery was just fucking drab, overall. I'm not very fond of winter in general, and since the game takes place in the northern most province of Tamriel, the entire game takes place in a grey, snowy, soggy backdrop. Kind of a bummer, but a good game to play during winter IRL I guess. I much preferred the more vibrant and wooded landscapes of Cyrodiil in Oblivion. I also find Ayleid Ruins far more interesting than Nordic Tombs filled with Draugr. Main questlines were ok, but the DLC was pretty great. The game has been out for a long time now, but if you haven't played it and are a fan of the ES series, it's good and worth the time. I spent ~125 hours finishing all the main questlines in the base game (Companions, College of Winterhold, Bard's College, Civil War, Thieves Guild, Dark Brotherhood, main quest), most of the daedric quests, some regional major storylines, and all of the DLC.

Finally got this working and the game seems pretty awesome so far. Big question is how fatigued I get with it - I got about halfway through Rogue Legacy before I was just exhausted of the starting area.

 

Still, controls, gameplay, music and art are all really nice in this.
