Onto the games! This week I’ve finally started up Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition, And it is absolutely delightful. I don’t know what praises I can sing for it that haven’t been already. It is absolutely gorgeous to look at, and the music is something else. And to top it all off.. It’s a damned well made metroidvania, secret collecting is addictive and rewarding, and backtracking never feels like a slog. Add in a healthy dose of challenging platforming and puzzle solving and well... We have a hell of a game.

I’m still picking away at Neverwinter Nights 2 on the other side of the fence. This game is still very fun... But technical issues are becoming a headache. The game runs at a very low framerate at times then perfectly smooth at others, and no amount of tweaking and fixes have perfectly alleviated the problem. On the silver lining of things however, is that the game is extremely enjoyable, the game has slowly been ramping up the difficulty, in combat making it a much more enjoyable experience on that end!

And once again, always some time for Final Fantasy XIV. I swear, someday I will put enough hours into this game that they deem me worthy to finally enter the expansion content... The post-game A Realm Reborn stuff takes an ungodly long time, especially when I get distracted doing other stuff all the time!

So TAY, what are you playing this weekend?
