    The argument at the table tonight: How to pronounce “Drow”.

    I figure it rhymes with “bow”.Report

    I’ve been playing the recent Mortal Kombat. It’s just as ridiculous as it’s ever been. The story mode was actually good. It has an excellent tutorial mode and plenty to do, if you’re a casual player like me. It’s a good diversion–the kind of game you can play for a half hour or hour and then walk away. The open world types of games I usually play require several hours of play at a time to feel you’re accomplishing anything. So this is a good one to have.Report

    I just hit 100% on God of War. Which was well worth the time (it’s really not that much, probably 40 or 50 hours to do all of it?).

    Moving onto Battletech next.Report

      I’ve got that! It’s sitting on the futon next to the PS4. I wanted to beat Spider-Man now that I’ve got all of the DLCs… I’m delighted to know that it’s good, though.Report

        It’s fantastic. I played on Easy (switched from ‘normal’ about a third of the way in) , since I found the story so engaging that I started to resent the lengthier and more difficult combat keeping me from it). Main story-line, even if you basically do all the sidequests and exploration and such, is maybe 20 to 30 hours.

        Another 10 to 15 if you want to do the optional bosses and optional realms (which can be done after the main storyline is complete). The optional bosses are…difficult. Even on easy and overgeared, it’s a matter of timing and really paying attention.

        But it’s the first game in ages that I wanted to do 100%. All of it. All the achievements, all the sidequests, everything.

        Frankly a very, very, very satisfying game on all levels.Report
