September 2019 Recap

Games Beaten

-Yakuza Kiwami 2 (PS4)

Like the remake of the first game, Kiwami 2 has a ridiculous amount of content. The plot is engaging with likable characters and nefarious villains and double crosses, and the light RPG brawler gameplay manages to not overstay its welcome thanks to the many distractions between story missions. The side stories continue to be a delight. The fact that there are so many Yakuza games kind of blows my mind. I could double my playtime trying to do everything in this game.

Games Bought

September was an interesting month for purchases. We picked up two copies of No Man's Sky (PS4) to play in the lull leading up to the release of Destiny's newest expansion. My wife also bought a couple of really cheap original Xbox games—Max Payne and Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge—though we haven't tried them yet. I remember always hearing such good things about Crimson Skies in particular back in the day. For my kids we got Ben 10 (PS4) because they love the show (it is actually pretty good) and the game was on clearance at Targt for less than $5. It seems like a decent, if shallow, brawler. We also got the Sega Genesis Mini, which includes a butt ton of games that I won't include here. I am most excited, however, to play Castlevania: Bloodlines. PS+ was a very solid month with Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4) and Darksiders III (PS4).

Games Being Played

-Destiny 2: Shadowkeep (PS4)

This came out on October 1, so it didn't make the September list but we have been playing a lot of this.

-No Man's Sky (PS4)

Now that Shadowkeep is out I don't know how much of this we will play (might get backburnered till the next Destiny lull) but for about two weeks we played quite a bit. We played with my older brother, who got NMS when it first launched, and he told us all the many ways it has improved since then. It's a fun game!

-Final Fantasy Adventure (Switch)

Fighting through the Dark Lord's castle!

-Earth Defense Force 2025 (PS3)

Progress slowed in September. Just chipping away at the lower Wing Diver missions.

I was deep into EDF 2025 right before Borderlands 3 came out. I was just getting back into playing as a Wing Diver. I think I want to play the whole game as a Wing Diver next time.

I really love the mobility of the Wing Diver. You can get around the battle field so quickly.

PLaying Yakuza 3 now, but plan to go back to Kiwami 1 and 2 to finish any substories I missed.

Oh, is the digital version out now? I'm gonna get the 3-5 box set in February.

yeah, digital version of 3 now, 4 comes later this month i think, then 5 in early 2020 and box set releases. You pay for digital once and the games become available on that timeline. I'm just gonna double-dip and also buy the box.

The main game I played in September was Link's Awakening.  I just beat it, too.  Now, aside from the many games I'm revieweing, I'm also playing a game where you get to be a goose, and a jerk goose at that.

I heard about that goose game! I might have to try that out.

I bought No Man's Sky when it came out, but was disappointed. The updates look great though. I'm hoping someday I can get a gaming pc so I can play it in VR though.

It's a lot of updates to download lol. But you should give it a try again. It's good now!

Playing DQ XI on Switch. Definitely the way to play it. It stopped me playing Link's Awakening which stopped my playing Grandia which stopped me playing Secret of Mana.

Didn't intend to play as much of DQ XI as I have but I can't seem to stop now.

I have Astral Chain waiting to be played too.

Never got into No Man's Sky, started it, got poisoned ran around frantically looking for something to cure me, died. Shut the game off. 

Then after all the updates came out so I tried it again. (see above for what happened)
