Yeah, the gunplay feels really nice. It's a damn shame Bethesda treated Obsidian so poorly during the production of F:NV. If they'd had the time to really do what they wanted I feel like that game could have been so much better than it already was.

Yeah, I was just quoting what I saw online. I mentioned in the first paragraph that Obsidian made F:NV. I'm honestly surprised how well it turned out considering how badly Bethesda fucked them over.

Also, one thing that I didn't mention about The Outer Worlds is how good the shooting feels. It almost feels like they developed an FPS and then bolted TSO/FO-style RPG elements on top of it.

I just obtained a copy myself. Looking forward to a better fallout than fallout experience. Also, it would be best described as "Fallout: New Vegas in space, with a not shit production time and stable game engine" considering obsidian actually made F:NV.

15. Disgaea 1 Complete



Uhh, that didn't take long. I think i beat this game in like 3 days from start to finish...

Surprisingly playable after having beaten d5 last december. More used to the cutesy silly anime saturday morning cartoon vibe this time around, so it was pretty tolerable.

Not bothering with postgame stuff, just wanted to polish this game off since I bought it I think before I got disgaea 5...but I took it out of the shrinkwrap...3-4 days ago...

Still, kinda wanted to play that game for over a decade, chewed through it, enjoyed it probably more than disgaea 5 to be honest. However, I might actually dip back into 5 to try some postgame stuff if I feel like it, getting billions of statpoints sounds cool.

15 games before november, I swear I don't play games 24/7, but I'm kind of impressed with what I've managed to finish this year. Anything more will just be a bonus.

I heard a lot of people describe this as "Fallout 4 in Space," mostly because Obsidian did New Vegas, yadda yadda.

See, that's not true at all. Unlike Fallout 4, this game is actually good.

*troll face*

But yeah, I'm about five hours in right now and just got off the first planet. The game definitely does resemble titles from Bethesda's stable, but instead of being based on Bethesda's mutilated version of the Gamebryo engine it's based on Unreal Engine 4. Rock solid so far and plays well on my 1080 Ti (ultra at 4K, though I did bump the render scale down to 80% to keep the framerate locked at 60; could probably tweak it further to squeeze some more pixels out of it but I don't see the need to). I had one minor issue where the sounds would cut off prematurely and eventually stop playing altogether around the 2h30m mark, but a quick restart (and I do mean quick—this game runs really well) resolved the issue. There is some minor object pop-in, but how noticeable it ends up being seems to be pretty variable.

My gut feeling is telling me that you're not going to see same level of expansiveness that you do in Bethesda titles after seeing how the first area is handled, but I'd much rather have a handful of rich, densely packed 750m² (rough guess based on distances walked) areas than a relatively sparse 16mi² one.

But anyway, it's getting late so I'm just going to finish this off real quick. First impressions are very positive. If it turns into a complete dumpster fire another hour in I'm sure I'll bitch about it, but so far I've been having a ton of fun with it.

You forgot the little detail where you have to pay more for the body kit and muffler than you paid for the car itself. :P But yeah, I have my body kit on order. I even managed to find an old ironing board to use as a wing.

In all seriousness, this is actually my second Civic. My last car was a pretty blue 2012 EX Coupe:



Quite a bit more road noise, not quite as peppy, but still a fantastic vehicle.

And yeah, I remember reading somewhere that Hondas are some of the cheapest cars to own due to their reliability, and after owning one for seven years I can honestly believe it. Funny to think that GM had the exact same thing going for them with the S-series Saturns and even the earlier Cavaliers and Sunfires, but we all know how badly they pissed that away.

Now that you have a civic, in typical Youngstown fashion you must throw a body kit on it now and add a rice burner exhaust.

Honda's are great cars. Very nice gonna last you a long time. My Accord was one of my favorite cars never had any engine problems.

14. Plants vs Zombies



Slowing down on world of warcraft now that im 60 and don't really want to do dungeons, so polished up another game I started a decade ago. Now if only they'd make a sequel worth playing.

Can I hit 15? WE'LL SEE!

So I ended up getting my first brand spanking new, straight off the showroom, 14 miles on the clock car tonight.


2019 Honda Civic EX Sedan. Has a few features! I like it!

Played a bunch of Hyrule Warriors this weekend (roughly 12.5 hours, judging from the iOS Screen Time feature (I always have a reference guide up on my iPad while I play, not to mention some sort of music app)) and cleaned out a decent chunk of the Master Mode Adventure Map (grabbing a bunch of level 3 weapons during my rampage), as well as a few squares on the Master Mode Wind Waker map.

In addition to that, I also finished clearing the Legend Mode stages on Hard and snagged all of the hard mode Skulltulas. There's one thing I never have to do ever again. I do need to pick up some heart containers/pieces from the legend mode maps and finish clearing them on Hero mode (shouldn't be a problem, seeing as Link is level 154 now).

Oh, Link also got his third row of hearts, giving him a total of 41. Not at all excessive.
