I know the point of the game is to keep replaying, but in other roguelike games, runs tend to be on the shorter side most of the time.  It's not game ruining at all, but for some people, it can be tough needing to invest that much time into runs.

There are talks they might implement some kinda of save feature in a future patch; I think there are ways they can do it without altering the core gameplay; like only being able to load the save once and having the game auto save if you die so you cant just load back to your previous save. With all that said.... I've given up on the game, not because i dont like it, but just because its too hard for me... I havent even been able to beat the first boss.. I kinda wish there were difficulty levels to it.

I just started up the Tomb Raider reboot after reading through this thread. I've been looking for something similar to Uncharted for a while, and while it isnt as lighthearted, it still scratching that itch for me.

well so far im really torn... the game is gorgeous and really fun... until it isn't. I've been playing off and on all weekend and I still havent managed to beat the first boss... Im really starting to think I'm not going to be able to finish this one, which is rather disappointing because it really is fun, just a little bit to difficult for me..

I watched an hour or so of gameplay and it still looks really cool but the rouge-like mechanics is not something I'm interested in.

I'm not normally a big fan of rogue-like elements, but every once in a while it can make for a fun game, like with Dead Cells, and so far this game seems like its going to be pretty fun.

Couple of additions

7. Super Mario 3D Land (3DS) 04/26
8. Immortals Fenyx Rising (PS5) 05/01

Immortals was an interesting game for me. At first I really had this feeling that it was nothing more then a cheap Breath of the Wild close, but the more I kept playing the more I realized it really was its own game, I mean sure it clearly took inspiration from BotW... but it really did end up being a great game on its own. The whole last section with the climb up the mountain and then the final boss fight all just felt grand and epic.

Havent seen anyone really talking about this one yet (although I might have just missed it) so I figured I'd start a thread. It kinda flew under my radar till I saw an article make a comparison to Metroid which immediately piqued my interest. I haven't really look too much into it, I know there are some rogue like death mechanics in there and its a 3rd person shooter... but other than that I'm going into this one kinda blind. It's installing right now and I'm really looking forward to giving it a shot! Anyone else going to be playing this?

Another good one to mention is Dead Cells. I guess its more a roguelike metroidvania, but it certainly scratches that itch in my opinion.

Finished my first game for the year!

1. Spider-Man: Miles Morales (PS5) 01/02

Really enjoyed the shit out of this one, they took everything that made Spider-Man great and turned it up to 11!!!

Also.. I already had to make an exception to my goal of not getting a new game for the PS5 till I finish my previous one. I was gifted a copy of Demon's Souls and well... yea fuck that. I'll get to it eventually but I'm not ready to take that one... so I'm just going to skip right over that for now and play Immortal Feynx Rising.

In 2020 I had a few goals that I didn't end up completing, like getting my first platinum as well as a list of specific games that i got maybe half way through. For 2021 I'm going to be a little less specific this time, and I only have two goals.

2021 Goals:
1. Complete the 52 game challenge
2. Finish EVERY physical PS5 game I add to the collection this year.
I will not buy any PS5 game till the one I am currently playing is beat. If I receive a game as a gift, I will finish that as well before I purchase anything for myself. Digital games obtained via PS+ do not count unless I download the game, if the game is installed on the PS5, I must finish it. The ONE exception to this will be if Pre-orders for Final Fantasy XVI open up.

23. Astro's Playroom (PS5) - 12/28

I really did a shit job playing games this year.. I spent too much time playing wow instead of other games. I am 100% going to fix that in 2021! going for the full 52 again.
