Elden Ring- finished it last month and wanting to start NG+ but got work to do first. 8.5/10What was the last game that you completed, and how would you rate it?
Completing games is not something I do often. The most recent game I completed was Halo Reach for the MCC on PC. I had originally played it on 360, but I barely remembered the campaign so it was great to get back in it. I haven't played much of the multiplayer, but I'd give the campaign 8/10 (nostalgia could play a big part)
Yea, Doom Eternal is a madhouse, lol. FPS is one of my favorite genres and I have a lot of experience with them, but Doom Eternal is definitely a really challenging game. I don't remember what difficulty I played on because there are a lot of them, but I definitely found it tough. I wouldn't even consider playing on the higher difficulties in that game. It's probably the most frantic, kinetic game I've ever played and I consider it to be one of the best shooters ever.Finished Doom Eternal. That game gets TOUGH!! I played Doom 2016 on hard (I think). With this one, I tried it on medium and did fine for the first couple of levels, then started struggling, then couldn't keep an extra life for long at all. I nearly quit, but instead I took it down to easy. That was actually too easy, so I built up some extra lives, then switched to medium and lost them all again pretty fast. Eeeesh, OK, back to easy to stay.
The game kept getting harder, though. By the final levels, there are huge demons running all over the place! I ended up losing all my lives again on the final boss. When that happens, you have to start the fight over again but this time with 0 extra lives - if you die again, you have to restart the boss fight again. Luckily, I figured out what I was doing wrong and managed to (barely) survive.
The game is a good one, though I really don't understand why they put so many cursed jumping puzzles in the campaign!? Am I the Doom guy or Mario?? After a lot of damage from falls, I eventually got the hang of the double-jumping and dashing. I guess the skills were handy in battle, but jeeez.
Oh, and don't play this game for the story. It's like they practically forgot about everything that went on in Doom 2016 and just made up a big, new history for the Doom marine. Oh well - it's all about the shooting, anyway, and the shooting is REALLY good!

This just makes me want to play through System Shock 2 again now.It's got a stunning number of easter eggs, too. Check out this view of the bookshelf in your office:
Von Braun's Onboard AI System Technical Manual? That would be S.H.O.D.A.N. from System Shock 2. Mesa Science, written in black, must be Black Mesa of Half Life fame. U-NAT-CO is from Deus Ex, and so on. The desk (earlier in the video) has some eggs, too.
Do you review it highly? Does it deserve the hype it's received?Finished Elden Ring and am half way through my second playthrough but taking a break now as I started getting burnt out.
The problem with Elden Ring is that once you finish it, you are left with the issue of what to play next...
