The Backlog Check-in Vol. 92: 10/5/19: Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince Edition

Played: Ghost Recon: Wildlands

Finished: Nothing

Playing: Ghost Recon: Wildlands

I'm still playing Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and still enjoying it. It's the type of game that I know is going to be fun when I play it, but it has its frustrating moments as well due to not having mission checkpoints and long load times when you die or fail a mission. It also has a rather repetitive gameplay loop and the story is paper thin just providing enough reason to do the missions, but the core gameplay is a lot of fun and the unscripted stuff that constantly happens while playing is often exciting, thrilling, or humorous.

The game world is big and varied which keeps the environments feeling somewhat fresh when you enter a new region. The world is completely open from the start, but has several different regions that have a specific enemy in them that you need to capture, interrogate, or kill. You have to do all of the missions in a specific region to get to the enemy in that region. Different regions have different difficulties from one to five skulls, so you'll want to clear the regions from easiest to hardest since there's a leveling and skill upgrade system. I'm in the four skulls regions now, and there's still a lot of game left to play.

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince comes out this week.

Games added: Code Vein, Dragon Marked For Death, Warp Shift, probably some other stuff I'm forgetting

Last while: Finished Zelda: Link's Awakening, played Code Vein, Warp Shift, a little Axiom Verge and probably something else I'm forgetting

This week: More of those, mainly

It's been a hectic couple of weeks or so. Tam came through her surgery fine, but she's been sore since & hasn't been able to do a lot so I've spent a lot of my time here helping her out. And work has been especially stressful as well, thanks to a random update/change Microsoft made that broke the way we were handling our students' email. So yeah, that's why I haven't been around here so much.

Link's Awakening was great, I played probably at least half of it while I was sitting around the hospital. Switch FTW. Went ahead & traded it in once I beat it because I got $42 out of it, but I'll definitely be picking it back up at some point for the collection & another playthrough. Code Vein is awesome, I'm loving it so far. It's Dark Souls + anime - masochism. ;) Gonna try to have it wrapped up by the time The Outer Worlds hits later this month.
"When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed
if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I
became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the
desire to be very grown up.” ― C.S. Lewis

Glad to hear the surgery went well. And that Microsoft thing sounds like a nightmare.
