Ori, Hellblade, Metro 2033

I didn't finish Ori or Hellblade, and I'm still playing Metro 2033, but I can complain and shower praise can't I?

Ori and the Blind Forest: 2D platforming, shooting, puzzles, these are together metroidvania, am I right? It's a very beautiful game and plays great. I, however, got stuck and stopped playing. I have a thing about repeating a sequence because a challenge requires a pixel exact jump, slide or movement. I really have no patience for it. Too bad too because this is a gorgeous game, just not my thing. 

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice: Walking sim, sword fighting, environmental puzzles, pretty cool. Thing is, when you are limited to walking a largist area to solve a complex puzzle, it gets really annoying. Also, when a puzzle is very obscure and the hints in the form of audio voices don't quite help, I have to stop. Very cool game though. I just don't have the patience for some of it. 

Metro 2033 Redux: Delightfully grimy, post apocalyptic FPS where you fight radioactive mutants in underground tunnels. So far I like it. I did set the game to less than extreme survival because I hate funning out of ammo. I ended up running out almost immediately anyway, but I was able to hang in there long enough to get to the first base and start the story missions proper. The npc conversations you come across are interesting. Almost everyone will say something to you if you get close enough to them. I'm liking it. Interesting story too. I'll continue playing it.

Metro 2033 has GREAT atmosphere. I've never finished it, but I've played a bit and really like it.

Yeah, it's really creepy in the tunnels. Environment details are exceptional.

You know that Ori and the Blind Forest is coming to Switch?  I don't know what Microsoft is thinking.  Do they NOT want me to get an Xbox One?  All the games I wanted for it are coming to the Switch, like Ori and Super Lucky's Tale.  Only ones left are the Ori sequel, Rare Replay, and probably Psychonauts 2 on the Xbox One that I want to play.

I've always had games I wanted across all systems. That's why I wanted them all. I still don't have a Switch though, for money reasons, but I want one for stuff like that golf/rpg I forget the name of and the upcoming Etrian Odyssey and Fire Emblem and. . . it goes on and on.
