Playing Doom Eternal, Children of Zodiarcs, Resident Evil 0 and Gears of War 3. I haven't left the house except for work (I am lucky to work in one of the deemed "essential" jobs by the government, although we are told to stay home if we become sick)

Mostly Animal Crossing New Horizons. Though I picked up a few games on spring sale as well on the Japanese eshop, they had Ni No Kuni, Yokai Watch, and Layton DX for 1,000 yen each. Mostly playing Ni No Kuni and Yokai Watch as I can't yet make out the instruction in Layton.

Been mostly working on improving my speedrun of Uncharted Waters: New Horizons, an obscure SNES RPG.

Nice! I stumbled into a copy of that buying a $30 SNES lot at a thrift store. If this whole thing runs long, perhaps I'll start it up & bug you for tips!

It was one of my favourite games as a kid. It's this bizarre hybrid of Open-world exploration/Tactical strategy/RPG/Economic simulation. I never actually owned it until I was an adult, but I'd rent it from Blockbuster every chance I got. It has some decent replay value as it has multiple characters, each with their own story that intertwines with the other characters, so you have to play all six stories to get the whole plot. It has some continuity with the original Uncharted Waters as well, but no knowledge of that game is required, since it's a self-contained story. My only big complaint with it is that it has 6 stories but only one save slot!

Wanted to pick up Doom Eternal, haven't done it yet though. Been mostly playing random PlayStation stuff, got a PSTV and put some psp stuff on it. Wipeout Omega Collection, Doom 64 and Quake Champions for my multiplayer fix

DOOM Eternal. I already beat it last Saturday and I have a 100% save file as of thursday (2 days ago). It's a blast.

Also the originals (Ultimate DOOM, DOOM II, Final DOOM)

My copy of Eternal hasn't arrived yet (I pre-ordered the day before release just to get D64), so I have been taking the opportunity to play the original 2 games, which I had never beaten before.  I'd of course beaten the shareware chapter 25+ years ago, but never the whole game.  I finished a couple of days ago, and I am now on Chapter 24 of Doom II, which is way harder and more dense with enemies than the first.

In chapter 30 (end game) I'll give you a hint, just in case you get stuck, but I won't spoil it for you. But you don't win the boss by shooting down his spawns think rocket launcher ;)

I already knew what the trick was (The Icon is a pretty famous boss), but it was still a major league pain in my ass.  Kept getting bad spawns that made it difficult to actually get those rocket shots off.
