I finally started getting to play a lot on weekends and some other occasional minutes so I've been relatively productive. Finished Witcher 2 and then a couple of months went into Witcher 3. I have not yet touched any of the DLC, though, since I picked up a game pass deal when it was on sale for 3 months at 9.99. Played through Gears 4, Ryse, played a little Golf Club, and am currently mostly through AC Syndicate, which Bellybama had spoken highly of. I feel like I forgot one or two more.

Also currently playing through Starflight again on my laptop,having seen it was just on sale on GOG. Will probably take up Ultima next on that, as well as having a running Civ 4 game (well, the Caveman2Cosmos mod) that I am starting to get comfortably ahead in.

Posted this in the XB Game Pass thread wanted to share here.

With me having limited gaming time lately to tackle big AAA titles I have, I’ve had a itch to try some smaller games I already own on my HD (on sale or GwG) or I found on Game Pass.

One game on Game Pass caught my eye I’ve been playing recently is called Sky Force Anniversary. It is a top down view shooter you control a plane through different stages. Each stage has goals you can complete and as you destroy enemies you collect stars as a currency to spend on upgrades for your ship. As you complete stages you also unlock more difficulties. It is a very fun and addicting little game (you always say “just one more run). What I love is the nights I work late I can play this 30 mins or so and feel like I accomplished something.

Highly recommend.

Playing Shadow of Tomb Raider now. I still have God of war in my dusty Ps4. I probably give in one more sitting, if I am warmed to it again, I will continue with it, otherwise, I am thinking of either AC-This is Sparta or Spidey next for this year. Maybe I get Forza instead. I have not played a racing game for ages.

I’m trying to rush through Fallout 4 (stopped doing side missions just doing main quest now) so I can finish it and move on to another SP game. I got to the point you go in The Institute. Mind blown!!!
