Xenoblade Chronicles X on the Wii U. It seems to be the game I end up playing to death when I feel deeply depressed, and it's not that I choose to play because of how I feel I just seem to end up playing it every time.

@PANDAQUEEN Were you changing the console's region in the options for those games you had issues with? I've seen people say you don't need to, but I've also seen people say that in order to play games from other regions you first need to change the region of the console itself which is a simple process done in the console's options (System Settings/System/Region). As far as I know the console is completely region free, which includes using the eShop from other regions as long as you make an account for those regions, so you must have been doing something wrong.

I don't want to change the region. That's my point. The issue is when I order physical copies of any games, I usually end up with at least 1-2 foreign copies.

I just got House Flipper off of Steam and it is so good at scratching that building/decorating itch! The whole point of the game is fixing up properties. You have the option of following briefs from clients or buying houses and making them over to your own specs and then auctioning them off. I'm really enjoying the physics of the game and the way that the walls crumble when you demo them. I hate the way lawn mowing works and spreading mulch or other terrain covers. I don't think you can build from scratch, but you can make additions. I'm in a love/hate relationship with having to actually install plumbing fixtures. I think the game is European in origin because the measurements are in meters, they place laundry facilities in either the kitchen or the bathroom, and one of the garden styles is "American" which I wasn't aware was a thing.

But it sounds to me like the main point is that you keep receiving copies from other regions, because that's what you seem to be complaining about the most. I don't recall you ever saying anything about the console's region (and especially not actually trying anything to make those games work) until I brought up the topic. I guess my point is that you could make those games work on your Switch if you actually wanted to, and as long as you can understand the language there won't be much (if anything) that is different from the North American versions. Also if you're ordering these games from the same place every time, and you continue to get the wrong regions, don't you think you should try buying from somewhere else?

Are you ordering directly through Amazon, or the other sellers? I ask because I've been ordering games from Amazon for over 10 years and I've never received a game from another region. In fact I've only ever had an issue twice out of who knows how many total orders. Only one of those orders was gaming related too, which wasn't an actual game and was a Gamecube memory card (which turned out to be a fake card), and it wasn't ordered directly through Amazon though it was fulfilled by them. So if the orders for you are directly through Amazon then either your luck has been bad, or mine has been good when it comes to actual games.

Atom RPG (from Steam). It's a Russian take on the classic Fallout 1/2 games, with (somewhat) better graphics and a distinctive post-Soviet flavour. I haven't played a new game obsessively for a very long time but this one has all I love - above all, excellent (and intelligent) writing, It has some problems (but is really stable - I never had a freeze or a CTD). Deeply recommended if you like the genre.

Super Smash Brothers Ultimate.

Unlocked Dark Pit and Mewtwo. Dark Pit is up for the rematch, but I got Mewtwo.

I have about 53 characters and the Mii Brawler and Swordfighter available. So 55. Still haven't unlocked Luigi.

Kinda funny...they won't allow Mai Shiranui from SNK into Smash, but Bayonetta, who is from a dark M-rated game series is allowed in the first place. (P.S. I have her, and she's not toned down so much to say she was completely bowdlerized. In some attacks, you can see where the hair along her body disappears like in her home game.)

Death Stranding.

I haven't finished the game yet but I understand Kojima's message, it's a good one and I admire him for it. The gameplay is really fun, though, some say it's repetitive and boring but I think they might have been expecting something similar to Metal Gear Solid though there are some easter eggs.The story so far is really good and I'm quite invested in learning more, it's complex, a lot of what the moments but overall not too difficult to understand and follow along. The graphics and aesthetics are top notch, the best of the best, it's so beautiful to look at. I was surprised to see Conan O'Brien and kept thinking wait was that really him in this game? I had to look that up to confirm, lol.

I like the gameplay of delivering cargo in the best condition possible with all the factors working against you like timefall, Mules, BT's, balancing the weight, traversing the uneven rough terrain, etc and can become strategic, plus getting to your destination in a timely manner while also helping your fellow players along the way and taking care of a BB. My maternal instincts surface every time he cries, he's so cute and I like how Sam Porter Bridges/Norman Reedus has grown attached so I'm really curious how this story will progress with everything else going on. It's also nice to get upgrades and new equipment, vehicles, etc which helps to make delivering and traveling a bit easier. I really like the online aspect of the game where players help each other despite this game being single player so you'll never see another player but you might hear someone call out and you can respond or see their footprints or put useful things around for others to use in their game and vice versa. I've also been helping to build the roads and it feels nice to work together. I wonder what this game will look like a year from now. But for now, it's exciting to be a part of it from the beginning to see how it's developing.

In the private room where Sam rests, showers, use the bathroom, etc, you can interact with him while he's sitting on the bed and there is some breaking of the 4th wall which I find funny. I didn't expect he would actually react to looking near or at his crotch. Since there were animations when focusing on various parts of him I wondered what other reactions there were. Interacting with BB while he's hooked up to his incubator is cute or scary, lol.

Edit: Still playing this game and haven't finished it yet but am over 122 hours of gameplay and am loving every second of it. This game is quite esoteric so some may not understand beyond the surface of what's presented but there are definitely indications toward an even deeper meaning for those who are open minded and those attune with their 6th sense/Third Eye. Congratulations to Hideo Kojima for winning The Game Awards 2019 for Best Game Direction. Definitely deserved for all his hard work. LIKE! Congratulations to Ludvig Forssell for Best Score and Music and congratulations to Mads Mikkelsen for Best Performance. LIKE! Also, all the actors and actresses, animators/animations, graphics, aesthetics, sound, music, etc. is nothing but top notch quality. LIKE!

Definitely, adding Death Stranding as one of my favorite video games that I greatly enjoy and appreciate.

I look forward to see what games he will create in the future. Though, I read he's thinking about a survival horror? next and I couldn't even play the P.T./Silent Hills demo...that's too scary.

Decided to grab some screenshots from the PS4.

Have you ever tried playing those Fable games online with someone? I had a chance to try a couple years ago, and in my opinion it made the games a little more fun. I guess it was mostly from just having someone else to play with since I don't remember it really changing anything about how you play.

Civ V nowadays. I've begun playing Civ VI, but haven't yet got the rhythm of it & still prefer Civ V.

I wouldn't say Life is Strange is an "obsession" for me these days, because only rarely do I consciously grieve over it. I'm just not the same as before I played it, and that isn't a problem, simply a fact that is there.

Finished Death Stranding with over 140 hours but will take more time to get all the trophies but I'm in no rush. That game has such great, deep storytelling and characters...so amazing. I wonder how may Death Stranding 2 be since it was mentioned I think by Kojima that it would have it's own game engine instead of using the game engine, Decima from Guerrilla Games. A few games built with that game engine are Horizon: Zero Dawn, Until Dawn, Rush of Blood as well as a few other games.

Currently, I've been playing The Witcher: Enhanced Edition and just started playing Rush of Blood which is a spin-off from Until Dawn. A PSVR title that I had on my wishlist for awhile since I enjoyed the demo and decided to get it while it was on sale. I raged quit Rush of Blood though, my arms and fingers were getting tired trying to use the controller but next time I'll remember to use motion controllers because it's just easier. But what a fun scary but quite disturbing roller coaster ride hence the name.

Crusader Kings 2, more specifically the Game of Thrones mod. Current game started at the mod's Crowned Stag bookmark (a.k.a our homeboy Bobby B is just starting to settle the throne after Robert's Rebellion)

Narrative-wise, semi-roleplaying this as "hey, Bobby B was still salvageable as a ruler and not totally jaded and checked out". Sole major plot was the discovery of Cersei and Jaime Lannister's affair after Cersei announced her first pregnancy. Both were executed, which roughed up relations with the ALL-MIGHTY TYWIN, mostly smoothed over.

Major book characters/personal book/show favorites dead so far (that I've picked up on):
  • Cersei Lannister
  • Jaime Lannister
  • Blackfish Brynden Tully (general poor health)
  • Catelyn Tully/Stark (rabies)
  • Talla Tarly (rabies, only 7 to boot )

Characters I wish would croak already:
  • Xaro Xhoan Daxos of the SIX HUNDRED NAMES REQUIRED TO BE SAID IN FULL EACH SCENE HE WAS IN ON THE SHOW
  • Gerold Dayne WHO IS OF THE NIGHT

As of the 292nd year after Aegon the Conqueror's coronation, our boy Robert Baratheon has since remarried to Bronze Yohn Royce's second daughter Alyssa, with whom he has had one son, Galladon. Now I wait for my spare.

Gran Turismo Sport; Second best in the series [after GT3]. Finally I can say that after 16 years Polyphony have got their shit together and have delivered a GT game that is enjoyable to play, responsive, focused, and actually for once rewards and encourages the player to drive the hundreds of cars they obtain. No more standard car nonsense, no more antiquated car part buying system and redundant GT Auto car maintenance. The game feels modern and sleek while still managing to have that old school GT1-3 feel.

Marvel's Spiderman; The action is addicting, though VA is cheesy. Web swinging is fun, though I'm finding the story a bit too predictable. It only makes sense that the guy who is creating robot arms would become a villian. Still, despite of the flaws the game is rather entertaining and the visual detail put into the city is almost life-like.

Same game as before, same start (Crusader Kings 2, A Game of Thrones mod, Crowned Stag bookmark as Bobby B with the intent to shape him up into a decent king)

---------------
Realm at large as of 298 AC (or about where A Game of Thrones the book begins):
Sitting the throne is Robert Baratheon, First of His y'know how it goes. 35, m. {Cersei Lannister, wed 283-294, sent to be a silent sister and died of complications related to gout), m. Myranda Royce*

His children by Cersei:
  • Steffon, heir, a rowdy lad of nine, betrothed to Margaery Tyrell
  • Byron, a strong albeit somewhat lazy lad of seven, betrothed to his half-aunt Leila (Tywin must've remarried while I wasn't looking, was born a few months after his death from getting too drunk)
  • Andrew, a strong lad of two
  • Sarella, his somewhat simple-minded twin, betrothed to Brandon Stark (obvs not book Bran)

His children by Myranda:
  • Boremund, newborn


*Chosen on account of being one of the younger available noblewomen who'd both be alive in the books (so ruling out characters born in-game), of proper marital age (14 in the mod not that the AI exactly follows these rules that closely, I'm looking right at you Renly Baratheon) and make some narrative sense (which I touch upon in the other character of note if you look carefully)
---------------
Lord and Lady Paramounts of the Seven Kingdoms
  • Ned Stark still has THENORF. At some point revealed himself as gay. Robb died of greyscale very early on .
  • Hoster Tully is still alive in the Riverlands, much better shape than his book counterpart. All three Edmure Tully/Sarella Sand shippers are in for a wonderful time.
  • Gwenna Arryn, 11, sole child of Jon Arryn and Lysa Tully. So far she seems like she has potential to be a good leader of the Vale.
  • Theon Greyjoy LITERALLY just took the Iron Islands the first day of 298 AC after his elder brother died while reaving near Myr.
  • The Imp is making daddy Tywin's afterlife miserable by ruling the Westerlands. No children yet.
  • Mace the Ace is still a lovable oaf in the Reach. No Queen of Thorns, she died of old age early on, but probs not before telling Death off.
  • Renly. Still keeping side-eyes on you.
  • Quentyn Martell is being better treated in the game so far than the books.

Other characters of note:
  • Stannis the Mannis is handling his cancer well this past decade or so in-game
  • Ser Lord Bronn of the highly-dubious promotion in the show is still floating around near Stoney Sept
  • Rattleshirt and the Weeper are both the only serious contenders at the moment to become the next King-Beyond-The-Wall.
  • No opportunities for Cleganebowl (GET HYPE) in this timeline, Gregor died under suspicious circumstances.
  • Lord Piggy Samwell Tarly is doing much better objectively speaking than book Sam, married one of my personal minor book favorites Desmera Redwyne.
  • My personal favorite extremely minor book character is still thankfully alive.
  • Gerold Dayne WHO IS OF THE NIGHT became a septon ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • I have, in my dungeons, a certain character with a highly contentious ending on the TV show. This character will, at some point, be executed and with their death, their family will end.

Realm was mostly calm from the beginning up until present, if one were to ignore the events of 296 AC. TL;DR=

-Two higher-profile book characters convicted of plotting to murder someone significant (Arianne Martell tried on Cersei Lannister, Cersei on Tyrion) and sent to be silent sisters
-some minor lord who died in the books during the Battle of Mummer's Ford manages to convince the Dornish that I'm a tyrant and to help him with rebelling (didn't amount to much help).

Super Smash Brothers Ultimate.

Recently got my Nintendo Switch Online sub for 12 month\$20 (Fair price considering the far reach of Nintendo since their playing cards days in 1889)

I think I unlocked almost all in-game characters. There may be a few I missed. But I have plans to buy the DLC and try to master the stages and characters. Besides, Sakurai-sensei said "After SSBU, it's highly unlikely they could top such a large roster ever again."

Still sitting the Iron Throne is our our boy Robert Baratheon aka Bobby B. Now 50, he's winding down his reign by and large, only thing at this point similar to book Robert is his drinking. Lost weight, lost interest in getting laid all the time. Last major campaign planned is to conquer the Stepstones and add them to the realm.

His children by his first wife {Cersei Lannister}, brief life summary:
  • Steffon, Lord of Rosby and current heir, 24, m. {Margaery Tyrell}, m. Tyalla Manderly
    -no children by Margaery, expecting his first with Tyalla

    Marriage to Margaery was smooth, but she fell into a depression and would sadly take her own life in 308 AC at the age of 25. Rosby would very briefly technically be part of the Reach via inheritance shenanigans, did console command-fu to give myself the title (technically) and now serves as the title traditionally given to the heir presumptive to the Iron Throne
    ----------
  • Byron, Lord of Dragonstone, 22, m. Leila Lannister
    -Marena, 3
    -(expecting their second)

    Stannis the Mannis would lose his bout with cancer in 305 AC, with he and his wife Falyse Stokeworth having had but one son Beric. Beric would die of poor health before he and his wife Brella Connington could have kids, ending the line of our favorite grammar-master.
    ----------
  • Andrew, 17, a sworn brother of the Kingsguard

    In truth, he's good with a sword and it should lessen claimant scrums upon Bobby B's death.
    ----------
  • Sarella, twin to Andrew, m. {Brandon Stark}, m. Martyn Sarsfield

    Decent girl, albeit somewhat simpleminded. Mental image of her in my mind is similar to Jaehaerys the Conciliator's last child Gael.


==========
His children by Myranda Royce:
  • Boremund, 15

    Not entirely sure what to do with him. Personally, I hope he asks to join the Night's Watch or the Citadel. If not, find him someone out of the way to marry and bury him under a few overlords.
    ----------
  • {Maris}, lived for a day in 301 AC
  • Arya, 10

    No clue what to do with her as well. If I can, give her to the Faith of the Seven. If not, no idea.
    ----------
  • Stannis, 5

    He's got plenty of time for me to decide where he ends up
==========
As for baseborn, there's only one that he acknowledged:
  • Valarr Waters, 12, his son by {Daenerys Targaryen}.

    Gonna do my Stepstones war, give him one of the islands there and get him to start a cadet branch of my dynasty, raise him to Lord Paramount of the Stepstones.

    As for his momma, did this RP style with Robert wanting the last of the Targaryens dead. Kidnapped Viserys and Dany when they were younger, had Viserys drowned in a vat of win because it was an option I was given. She got a version of the ending TV Cersei should've had.

There ARE others that I know of via console command but their mothers managed to pass off as trueborn. Only two I can remember off-hand are Rosalind Sarsfield (by Meera Reed) and Lady Paramount Alyssa Arryn (by Gwenna Arryn).

Fallout 4. I discovered the game by accident in fall 2017 and have played it ever since. I played 3 times and each time I chose a different faction to end with. I'm currently playing Przemek, a charismatic but brutal and mean guy. He loves sneaking, stealth kills and his favourite weapon is a combat knife. He also likes ripping people off. He allied with the Railroad. I recorded 7 clips which were a collection of his sarcastic and mean comments. I watch them when I have a bad day and want a good laugh.
