Started playing Diablo 3. What took me so long to finally play Diablo? Picked a necromancer as my first character as I wanted to play something different other than a rogue-type or warrior. Really loving raising undead hoards to fight by my side. I feel like the Night King.
never played one before? what made you get it?
It's one of those games that's always been on the back of my mind thinking, I wanna play that sometime. It's also packed with years of updates, but sells for very cheap. Lately, a lot of games I used to play regularly, are starting to lose my interest entirely. Games like, Warframe, Hearthstone, Elder Scrolls Online. Diablo kinda scratches that itch I've been missing for the past year or so.

Does that mean it's a Microsoft exclusive?

I don't think so? Machine Games has made games across all platforms before. Did i miss something in there?

Microsoft bought Bethesda. Bethesda hasn't come out and said they are only making games for MS, but the assumption is that could be the case.

Lucasfilm Games is back, and I see Lucasfilm Ltd in the copyright statement. My guess is that Disney wouldn’t allow an Indy property to be single platform, but who knows.

I also read that it should be available on GamePass from day 1.

I finished Gears 5: Hivebusters last night. I may go back and play the others, because this game was a hell of a lot of fun. The graphics were incredible, too.

@shafnutz05 Any tips on beating the Lynels in BOTW? I can crush the red ones easily. I tried to fight a white one and got my ass handed to me. I think I read on here you fought one and won.

Also, down to just 1 more side quest (the one you have to follow the letter from that Zora girl), and one Shrine quest (the Red Moon one), and need 8 more shrines overall. Also down to 4 more memories I need to find.

I only need 31 more pics too for the album, and it's made up of 23 weapons and 8 enemies. Got everything else.

This is just such a fun game. Nothing is linear and you make the path what you want.

LucasFilm Games is such a dumb name. Bring back LucasArts.

My favorite part about the Indy announcement are the Playstation fanboys who have been roasting Xbox for years about not having any exclusive games and the very first announcement from Bethesda they're crying about exclusivity. I don't know if it's going to be exclusive or not, but the hypocrisy is funny. Sony Pictures has allowed Spider-Man to be an exclusive. Why shouldn't LucasFilm?

That said, I think exclusives are dumb.

Fanboys are dumb for any system. Exclusives are dumb, but honestly are the reason why I've been a playstation guy for a few generations.

It would be kind of silly for MS to buy Bethesda and not get some sort of advantage because of it.

It would be nice if every game was released for every system, but it is what it is.

I'm not majorly hyped on Indiana Jones anyways. Seems as if they're trying to capture an "Uncharted" market by using a movie guy that didn't exist for most of these kids?

I don't know, guys. After the teaser announcement, I listened to Raiders March about four times in a row. I'm fired up lol.

Well, Indy 4 is supposed to be released in 2022. Tomb Raider and Uncharted are great Indy ripoffs. It only makes sense to do a similar style game with the actual character who inspired them.
Yes, I meant 4. Crystal Skull isn't a real thing.

It's been awhile since I've played, but the trick is to recognize their attacks and react accordingly.

You want to get them stunned and then shoot them in the face with an arrow. This should give enough time to hop on their back and get some free shots in.

There are plenty of videos on YouTube which show how to do it.

Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment announce open-world Star Wars game
https://www.gematsu.com/2021/01/ubisoft ... -wars-game

This also means that EA no longer holds the exclusive license for Star Wars.

EA has fumbled it and pissed it away. The only shame is that Ubisoft picked it up...

Hmm, speaking of, I should probably get back to Battlefront II. I have yet to finish it.

Looking to expand our Switch catalog - which right now is Mario Party and Luigi's Mansion.

Suggestions? Multi-player is a plus. Main user is 7 years old.

My kids are 10 and 8. They love the following:

Animal Crossing - A laid back game where they build their own island. Kids can figure it out and it's also fun for adults

Any LEGO game - I love playing those with the kids and they love it, not sure if you ever played any LEGO games, but they are very well made, fun, but also have some puzzle type challenges for adults

Mario Kart - Can't go wrong

Mario Odyessey - That may be a challenge to the kid as they get further into the game. My 10 year old caught onto it really well, but my 8 year old (was 7 at the time) struggled later into the game

Dance Dance Revolution - my daughters love it

Those are the games they play the most. They also play Mario Tennis Aces which is a fun game.

If you are looking for a game, get Zelda BOTW
