Gears and Gnomes

I took a break from Borderlands 3 today. I downloaded Destiny 2 because it was free. Of course, the slow doanload for a 95 GB file made it impossible for me to play today, so I played some Gears of War 5. Getting a bit bored of that, I switched to PS4 and played a more casual game called Gnomes Garden 3. I got hooked on that and then downloaded the 3 game bundle on Xbox because it was on sale. Details . . . 

Gears of War 5: I played a round of Versus, Escape and Horde before begining the campaign. I found Horde mode the most fun except I had a bad connection and got kicked out after four or five waves. 

The campaign seemed good. It's just like previous Gears games in terms of gameplay. For some reason, I coulfn't really get too excited by it. My favorite moment was finding the Retro Lancer and impaling enemies on it like I used to do in other Gears games. Maybe I just wasn't up for a shooter today. Otherwise it's a solid Gears game. 

Gnomes Garden 3: I had downloaded this on a sale on PS4 a few weeks ago. It's like the resource managment part of Warcraft II made into a whole game. You are tasked with gathering rescources and building structures to complete different tasks. Like in one level, you gather resources and build buildings in order to enable a sorceress to plant magic trees.

It's a colorful game and easy to play but difficult to get the highest score within the time limit. You can take your time fi you want. There isn't a hard time limit to the game. So it's casual fare but can engage you more if you want that high score.

It's fun. I liked it so much I downloaded a bundle of the first 3 games in the series on Xbox. It was on sale too, which was a bonus.

So I am currently installing that game and wow 80GB on my end. I think I might be able to play it around dinner time. It would be nice if the download speeds were better but I can't complain, it's free.

I'm not complaining too much. I remember when it too all day just to download a MP3 file.

I tried to play the first Gears with my brother co-op, but he had already beaten it and had no patience for my exploring. Never tried it again...

That's too bad. Mark and I played most of them co-op, Gears 3 especially. We played Hoard mode on that incessantly. It was a blast.
