Dragon Quest Builders 2 is really good! Iím enjoying it a lot more than the original. They really refined the controls from the first game.

I'm enjoying it too. Building in 3rd person is cumbersome and I still misplace blocks (I'm on the 2nd big island), but it's all so adorable.

Yeah, I missed that for a while in the first game too. Not sure if they ever explain it.

Played the first hour of Builders. It's ok but way too talky. I don't remember the first one being this bad in that respect.

I started skipping the dialogue on the 2nd island. On the first island only the guy with the bowlcut had a strong accent. On the 2nd island it's everyone. It's just a pain to read, on top of being needlessly verbose.

'ang abaht? Spare me.

Just got out of the prison. That was a drag too, because it's completely scripted.

Another day one 3rd party game.  Just like outriders, itís an interesting game but not one I was willing to spend $60 on so this is perfect.  Gotta love gamepass.

I accidentally didn't check off autorenew and so got another month of Gamepass and haven't touched it in 2 weeks. I hadn't touched it in 2 weeks prior to that on a 99 cent month.

I did the 99Ę thing and then have renewed it 2~3 times now at full price just for State of Decay 2, which I could have just bought and own outright. Probably need to do that and then swing back to GamePass when it's cheap again.  :-\

Yeah will get the game next time it's on sale. I do like playing a random mission from time to time.

I'm playing Observation as I had it downloaded and it's also leaving Game Pass. Game is pretty awesome. Siiick visual effects. I'm being corny and using a walkthrough so that I don't miss any collectibles

Huh, I never thought about buying game codes from third party vendors, always just bought shit direct from the console store. Will check them out  :)

Oberservation is awesome. Im about 3/4 through I think. It draws inspiration from basically every hard-sci-fi film but that isnt a bad thing. Theres touches of Interstellar, Gravity, Stowaway, 2001, Sunshine et al. The result ends up feeling quite original still, especially due to the perspective of the player and subsequent handling of the narrative

Yeah, the ending (no spoilers) is a bit rushed, but overall very cool and unique game.
Although some puzzles aren't really all that thrilling.

I just got a Series X.  Is there anything thatís must play on the Series X? 

Iíve been mostly playing Outriders with some friends.  Itís fairly fun but janky.  Iím glad I didnít spend anything on it.  Twenty second load times for the missions is nice.  It took forever to load on the One X.

I platinumed the game in like 6 hours on the PS5. It's a pretty decent mid-tier game. I enjoyed it.

Maneater is pretty good. Low stakes chilled out sandbox collectathon. Jokes are pretty funny, the guy who plays Jerry in Rock and Morty does the narration, just sprinkling in bullshit shark "facts" while you play. Even has a free DLC Tiger shark skin lol.

Also I played Hollow Knight for 5 hours straight today which is a very very long time for me these days. Wowee I don't know how they made a game that just keeps getting better but they did it. The design is absurdly good. Team Cherry are INSANELY talented. Almost crapped my pants going through the 'Deepnest' level. They totally nailed the atmosphere there. Terrifying, horrible place.

Ya, I'll probably skip Y4-Y6 for now and play Y7 to get the better money value before all these are removed from Game Pass.

Btw, Judgment still pretty good demi. The mini-games suck ass, but they always have and always will be nothing but time wasters.
