If you get motion sickness, you won't want to watch this. These guys must rule in deathmatch.

No idea what your home diy setup is, but I made a bartop arcade running retropie.

... I think I want to know more about this home bar of yours.

It was a super fun project and would be a good father/son project depending on age.

I just started Resident evil 7. So far so good. It’s a little reminiscent of the first couple, seeming more like a puzzle game, but has good mechanics like 4 and 6. Excited to see how it plays out.

Picked up Space Hulk Deathwing Enhanced Edition.

The first mission is fun... until it turns into a hold position and deal with unending waves of enemies. Eventually, the healer runs out of potions (or whatever it is), and my little three man squad gets mobbed to death.

Anyone got any tips?

Finished Days Gone. There were a couple of bugs, but nothing I couldn't get around (after Andromeda, which I perversely enjoyed, it was a polished masterpiece). Really good game. Considering how much I don't like this generation of consoles, it's had some bloody good games on it!

Anyhow, just to show you how far behind I am in the backlog, I'm now playing Divinity Original Sin 2. I've started it a couple of times but gone on to other things. Now I'm 20 hours deep and man, if this isn't one of the best CRPGs I've ever played. Stunning game.

Has anyone played Witcher 3? Just came out on the Switch and have considered picking it up. Haven't played any of the other Witcher games. I'm a big fan of Elder Scrolls, Dark Souls, Nioh, and the like - is Witcher 3 comparable?

Closer to Elder Scrolls than Dark Souls or Nioh. It is a fantastic game, like if Skyrim had a grizzled Private Detective as a protagonist.

BUT the combat mechanics are overly complicated and a bit clunky, the plot has pacing issues in the middle, and your horse is.... special, making getting around a bit of a chore at times.

If you don't have a PC to play it on, get it, you won't regret it.

If you do have a decent PC, get the PC version, it goes on sale several times a year and it's far prettier (they had to lock resolution to 540p and crunch the draw distances for portable, and it still chews through battery life, but at least the frame rate seems stable from reviews).

Played Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition some more. I'm finding this game hard, really hard, but also really atmospheric. You can tell the devs really love 40k and the lore.

The difficulty sounds like some of the horror stories I've heard of Dark Souls playthroughs... if DS didn't have one of the worst cases of lazy, shitty, no-effort-put-in console port-itis I've ever seen. (Press Right Trigger... when the input method is set to goddamn keyboard/mouse... one day, I will dig up some mods and try DS again.)
