I'm back on my bullshit and playing The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion again. I discovered a mod that lets you play as a goblin—I used the developer console to make me 70% smaller than normal and I'm loving the ability to be this scrappy little monster on a grand, heroic quest. It actually motivated me to start playing through the main quest, and wow, I had no idea it escalated so quickly. I feel compelled to take a detour so that I'm more leveled up and the game gets more dramatic. The best part about this goblin mod, though, is its alternate starting position, which has you spawn in a cave full of other (friendly!) goblins near the Imperial City where your shamanistic leader found the body of Emperor Septim lying on the side of the road, stealing his amulet (and hilariously, clothes) and starting the main quest that way. The only downside is that I think this mod has, consequently, removed most if not all goblin enemies from the game's dungeons; the only ones I have encountered so far have been ones explicitly assigned to appear during specific quests, like "The Killing Fields."

Anyway, there should be more games that let you play as goblins.

Fate/Grand Order

Here we go, my first Fate game, and my second attempt at finding a mobile game that I like (after giving up pretty quickly on a very different game, Idolmaster Cinderella Girls Starlight Stage, previously). Got far enough to finish what appeared to be most of the tutorial bits, and I think there's potentially an RPG I'd enjoy playing in here. Been a long time since I played a turn-based RPG, and the system in this is interesting if nothing else. Rather than the usual attacking methods, you're given a stack of five randomly selected attacks to choose from, and you select three every turn that determines who attacks and with what. I can see this leading to "death by RNG" moments (something I've gained a unreasonable hatred for thanks to tabletops) later when the game actually gets hard, but for now it looks like the idea is to have the party properly prepared pppppp and to use things like buffs/debuffs smartly, after which point the times the attack options roll a 1 won't hurt me nearly as much (?). Guess we'll see.

As for the story/characters, I'm not too lost so far on the plot, and that's saying something considering that when I tried watching streams of Fate/Extella I was utterly lost on what anything was. Olga and Mash are two personality types I'm not too big on by default, though I appreciate that they explain right away what the hell Olga's problem is, and Mash is starting to grow on me, so the writing must be doing something right.

Civilization 5. It's a massive time-sink, but I'm starting to understand more and more of the system. I've spent more time managing citizens and I've become a lot more careful about where I set up improvements. Poland has more or less become my go-to civilization.

Sonic Mania: I absolutely enjoy this game, and it feels just right on so many levels. I've gotten through eight different zones yesterday, and I think this is becoming one of my favourite games of 2017.

Sonic Mania

What can I say that hasn't already been said on the Sonic thread multiple times? This game is amazing. It's honestly met and exceeded my expectations and to be honest is everything I want out of a Sonic game. And the music. The music is, to put it simply, fucking amazing! 10/10

Spoiler

Also the Mean Bean Machine boss. Holy shit. That's the coolest most clever thing I've seen in a long time.

Played some more Billy Hatcher on Thursday; mostly just finding chick coins i couldn't find before in levels with the help of a GameFAQs guide

On Friday I finally managed to find a working 360 controller and some batteries to play Rayman Origins for a second time, thanks to OneyPlays for getting me back into wanting to play it again. I missed it.

I also FINALLY started playing Dark Souls 1 too on the 360! ...I'm still getting used to the Xbox controls; I'm more acclimated to GameCube and 3DS controls lol...
I know what to do and where to find stuff, it's just getting a grasp of the controls in such a fast-paced game that's kinda challenging right now lol

In addition to the games I've mentioned in other threads (Splatoon 2, Puyo Puyo Tetris and Disgaea 5) I've also been giving Tera another try after putting it down for a year. After deciding the gunner just wasn't my jam I started over with a warrior and have been having a good spot of fun with that. There's still some MMO tropes going on that are kind of a nuisance, but the combat feels good enough that I'm willing to put up with it all so far.

Half-Life

I forgot it was in my library so I decided to give it a play and I actually like it WAY more than I thought I would. I really liked the escape sequence from Portal and this entire game feels like that.

Farcry 4

My only experience with the recent Farcry games was Blood Dragon, but I'm really loving it. It's definitely not "Skyrim with guns" but it's really good.

Playing as the Zann Consortium, I managed to capture Corellia and Bespin (After corrupting them with Piracy of course) but for whatever reason the Rebel Alliance kept gunning for Jabiim until I finally lost the planet.

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5

My brother bought it recently and I thought I should try it out before he returns it. The graphics were ass and the lack of customization was a bummer, but the REAL kicker was the controls. If you try grinding or wallriding and you press the button too soon, you ground pound. Put in all the celebrities, superheroes, and Shreks you want, but ground pound does NOT belong in a Tony Hawk game.

Yeah I heard a lot of bad things about 5. A shame since the early games (especially 3) are classics. I still play them here and there, I actually have 3 on my PS2, along with my computer last I checked.

Interesting romhack, but some levels feel unfair and not fun. Mostly it's a good test of your Sonic Skill(tm) though.
