I'm about 20 hours into Dragon Quest IV for the DS. Of the games I've played so far in the series, I think this one might be my favorite. It reminds me a lot of Wild Arms, so that's an added bonus.

It is definitely my favorite. So many folks say V is their favorite, but I'm always like, "did we play the same games?" IV is fantastic! The characters are so unique, and the combat in the DS version is superb and accessible, but still challenging based on the characters you choose.

I'm really into Cyber Punk themed games right now so I'm trying to play through the Deus Ex series. I have no prior experience with Deus Ex, so I'm starting with Human Revolution (WiiU version), then Mankind Divided (Xbox, excited as they just added this to the FPS boost list), then back to the original (I have the PS2 version; I've heard this is a surprisingly good port, even better in some ways than the original PC).

Heard that Titanfall 2 had another big jump in attention recently, sporting a huge boost in players, which is just awesome.  I kinda casually jump back in every time it perks back up, spend a little time in it and then head off, but I might stick around longer for this one as every time I jump back in, I remember how damn good this game is lol Like it sucks that Apex only wants to skirt the edge of its Titanfall world, though the new character sporting some features from I think the Northstar Titan is pretty dope, I'm just not into its team mechanics since I don't have any friends that play the game and with Titanfall 2, I can just jump in, kick some ass, and destroy stuff with my Titan without worrying about team dynamics too much.  I think it's mostly just gonna be something that tides me over till Battlefield 6 comes out as I haven't been playing a lot of multiplayer games lately.

So I started playing Scott Pilgram vs The World.
Folks act like this is the best beat ‘em up in history. It’s alright. Maybe I’m just not deep enough.
So far Streets of Rage 4 knocks it’s socks off.

I finished watching the cutscenes for RE:Coded yesterday. It just might be the worst "thing" that has ever been given the Kingdom Hearts branding. 3 hours worth of cutscenes telling this really uninteresting story that isn't important to the main plot at all, with some actually important stuff during the last 20 minutes. I'm glad I didn't bother buying the actual DS game.
Currently Playing:
Kingdom Hearts III (PS4), Ring Fit Adventure (Switch), a bunch of other stuff intermittently.

4 is definitely a top 5 entry in the series

Pales in comparison to 5 though wich has a way better story aside from everything else being amazing. IV ain't surpassing 8 and 11 either. Definitely the upper half of DQ games but it's far from the best.

Castlevania Lords of Shadow: Mirrors of Fate HD on Steam. In an effort to clean up games that I started and dropped for a while, I decided to give some time into this since I started it back in January and have yet to finish because I wasnt really into it and also didnt help that other games got in the way. I decided to play for the first time in sometime yesterday hooking up my laptop to my TV with a Xbox Series X controller and needless to say I made a good amount of progress that if all goes well I should have finished by the end of the week.

I've been playing Final Fantasy VI via the FF Anthology.

Hiccups (and a few translation laughs) aside this is still RPG excellence.

I'm continuing to run through the first Mass Effect (PS4/5) and will move on to the next couple in time for my single player fun.

For multiplayer, I'll be jumping back into Dead by Daylight when the Resident Evil cross over comes this coming week. I have a couple buddies I play regularly with. Looking forward to being Jill and Nemesis.

I think I've lost all patience at timed missions in games, especially ones that have very little wiggle room. So because of that, I quit on Anomaly Warzone Earth Mobile Campaign nearly at the end. Too bad, it was a neat game.

At the final area of Link's Awakening for the Switch, otherwise pretty quiet on the gaming front. Looking to start a new Switch game soon (or pick up Dark Souls Remastered again and take on Nito) and to find something new (and cheap) to play on Steam.
