Beat Breath of the Wild after starting it on Friday. Kind of underwhelmed to be honest. It's an absolutely stunning and expansive game, but as far as Zelda games I'd have to rank it at the bottom of the games I played.

WW>MM=OoT>BoTW imo.

Have to decide what to play next. Thinking DS3 to prepare for the remaster at the end of May.

POE2 Deadfire is really good.

God of War keeps getting better and unlocking new things that make me go, “What?! That’s awesome!”

Did you ever play Divinity 2 and if so, which do you think is better? Trying to decide if POE or Div 2 should be my next game when I'm in the mood for that style.

Manipulating women...now THAT's hard. Probably because most woman have no clue what they like.

I thought Divinity 1 was better than Divinity 2, but I only played the Beta for 2 --- maybe they polished up the final version. I will have to go back at some point and play it.

Excited for POE2 though. Will have to try to avoid looking at spoilers for where all the secrets/good loot is - so tempting to look at guides as you play ...

Yes, but hard to say which is "better", since they have very different settings and different combat systems. Div 2 is very Ultima-esque with a sense of humor - everything in the game is a bit lighthearted. Div 2 combat is turn based and fine-tuned. POE has a very serious tone and the combat can be fairly strategic, but it is RTWP, so can be a bit on the messy side.

So it depends on what your preferences are: turn based combat or RTWP? Serious tone or somewhat lighthearted/quirky?

You beat BoTW in 5 days? You must not be an easily distracted person. I was constantly veering off course finding Koroks and shrines. That's like 80% of the game.

I was playing Hitman for a bit. I had Paris and Sapienza free for awhile, finally played them and loved it, bought all the rest on a Steam sale, and then immediately seem to have lost most of my interest. I'm sure I'll be back to it.

Instead over the weekend I took a 2nd shot at Civ 5, which I've also had for awhile and tried for a few hours once but couldn't get used to all the new mechanics. I did some research on some of the culture, growth, social policy, and City State mechanics and busted through a small map on Chieftain difficulty just to get accustomed to how it worked (I wasn't looking for a challenge). Makes a lot more sense now and I have some basic knowledge of the tech tree and what social policies to get. Started a new game on Prince (I think it's still Prince, whatever is 1 above Warlord) yesterday so we'll see how that goes, enjoying it significantly more than the first time I tried it.

I'm quite sad this is a ps4 exclusive.
