Finished Disco Elysium, even though it was mostly text, the artwork was amazing, a great RPG, the writing and story and narrative was very good. Lucky I got in late and got to play the version with all the audio first.

Started Red Dead Redemption 2 and did not expect to get hooked on FIFA 21, but it's fun learning the skill moves, finishing out the tutorials, there are a lot of them. Tried Squadrons, not crazy and about the game play.

Looking like MSFS will take up 100GB on Xbox. That's actually not too bad, although a lot of space by game standards.

I finished Red Dead Redemption 2. Some sleep deprivation happened there. Quite a massive game.

I only played the first. Heard 2 is quite the game as well. Did you enjoy it?

I really want to play RDR1 now. RDR2, it's a mixed bag. I did enjoy it but I understand why others didn't. The interface is very balky (accidentally shot friendlies, more than once) and a lot of maintenance tasks, but its highs are quite something. The story does drag, but is a rollercoaster. As has been mentioned, the realism is unparalleled, you stand on a train bridge and you'll hear it creaking. The backdrops are beautiful, even only in 30fps, I think I was playing in 4K (Playstation 5). The hunting is very realistic. I had a hankering to experience the west in the late 19th century and this it did fully. It is a major time suck though, even if you're ignoring all the sidequests.

Before reading this in full, I thought for a second there you could play the new game with actual swings measured by TM. It's just feeding the EA Sports course data.

Finally played Ghost of Tsushima, got to the end credits and almost done with DLC. What a game. It really makes you feel like a master samurai and the story is good. 
 

Next up is Spider-Man. 
 

The Velocopter in MSFS was a little disappointing. It’s really slow. Waiting for a proper helicopter.

Finished Spider-Man and Miles Morales. What fun games. The web slinging through the city lives up to the hype as well as knowing what it's like to have the powers of Spider-Man and the fights never got old. The story for S-M and MM were both very good and they got a lot of details of Manhattan right, although the map was off.

Almost finished with God of War and did not expect it to be so good. Having your son along the whole way enhances the story so much.

Next up will be Death Stranding and then Bloodborne probably. Going through the Playstation exclusives.

Tried Walkabout Mini Golf on Oculus Quest and really liked it. It is Putt-putt with all the obstacles, etc but the putting stroke feels very real.

The game is a riot and I suggest it for any VR gamers out there.

ps: I know it is no longer “Oculus” but I really hate calling if “Meta Quest”.

I thought about getting Elden Ring briefly, then I realized I’m not prepared to buy a new TV for when I eventually throw my controller into it.

Lol. I finished Dark Souls so I knew what I was getting into. It’s not as punishing as Dark Souls was but I hear the end game is frustrating.

Last souls game I played was DS 2. The last From Software game I played was Bloodborne which I did not like at all. IIRC I  stopped playing after Father Gascoigne.

    • I agree.  I think the reason that the TRO was denied was because there was no real basis for irreparable injury/damage. I'm no lawyer, and don't claim to be, but from what I've read that was the problem with the TRO as far as those 3 golfers were concerned.  Temporary restraining order  
    • And yet the NFL and NCAA exist and the others do not. So who really won? No damages awarded? Pyrrhic victory at best. LIV only exists to try and take the PGAT down. They will fail as the others did. Your argument is still very weak.
    • Day 59 (12 Aug 22) a rainy inside day, worked on lag putts from about 15’ and chipping whiffle balls into a small bucket (the latter is a constant game with the grandson - he was my chipping partner today).  
    • Day 284, August 12, 2022 Played Nicholas Memorial GC in WV on my way to NC.
    • You can search the topic, and yes, it has been mentioned. Recently. Not the PGA Tour's fault that there's no "meaningful choice." Plus the word "meaningful" is doing a lot of heavy lifting there. They have a choice. They have several choices. PGA Tour players make about the same percentage of what their sport creates as players in other sports. Golf is a niche sport. It's not the freaking NFL. It's not even the NHL. The law hasn't spoken on this. So, no, not "regardless of the law." And, let's remember, the TRO was denied. If the judge felt the suspensions were not legal, that would have played a role in her granting the TRO.
