Games I got for Christmas and thoughts:

 

Red Dead Redemption II: Surprise surprise, it turns out Ocelot's posts already summed it up better than I could. :P Big, beautiful, immaculately detailed game - a work of art, really - that is tragically quite boring to play. I don't think I've ever played a slower game in my life, and it's amazingly linear.

 

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: At least I think that's the right title. Can't keep them straight. How come no one uses numbers anymore? Anyway, I still vastly prefer sexy stone-cold badass Lara Croft from the old games to the little (literally - she's so small!) girl-next-door reboot version, but what can you do. Game seems alright so far - at least it's not set in the snow like the last one. Jungle > snow. Also, I always thought they were turning Lara into Katniss from Hunger Games, but it turns out they were actually turning her into straight-up John Rambo this whole time. In addition to self-treating horrible wounds, she gets covered in mud and stabs people in the throat with ruthless violence. There's even a trophy that references First Blood. But I just have one question: can we please get a game without Jonah in it? He's the most boring block-of-wood "character" of all time and a terrible sidekick. Lara shouldn't have a recurring sidekick anyway. She's a solo act.

 

Monster Hunter World: I considered buying this for a long time since it ticks a bunch of my usual boxes and I loved Dragon's Dogma, but I was massively turned off by the whole anime-steampunk vibe. Finally got it when I heard they would be putting Geralt in the game, because yeah I'm that bad. The game started off okay, but by the first real mission I was already bored. I wailed away on the first boss for what felt like hours to no avail - I never managed to defeat him. I guess my damage numbers weren't big enough to offset his self-healing numbers, or I wasn't doing something right. Maybe I should try a weapon other than the awesome pet-beetle-staff, but I don't want to do that. I'm not sure I'm a big fan of what seems to be a Destiny style "do a mission and then return to the hub, rinse and repeat forever" formula. From the name I was expecting something a bit more, well, open world. Maybe one of these days I'll give it another try...

^Thanks, man! :D It's really great to hear that. I'm somewhat insecure about my art, lol - never really feel like it's quite up to snuff. Always trying to improve. Your commissions have been a lot of fun, and good practice!

 

Oh! And I don't think I ever posted this, which I drew for Wolfy's birthday about a month ago (drawn with ink & marker):

More art commissions for Nightstalker! All of these are his characters - from his Black Lance Guild, I believe.
