In my case, it's been Anno 2205 or Anno 1800 during their Free Weekends. (Anno 1800 is supported by GeForce Now; Anno 2205, unfortunately, is not - yet; I own Anno 2205, but not Anno 1800.)  My alternate is Bejeweled Blitz (Facebook) on both PC and phone.

Playing Animal Crossing right now on my Switch.  Ok game I guess.  Kind of slow going though.  Things that need building, you need to wait until next day to complete the build.  Also, resources are kind of low for what you can get per day.  Maybe I am doing something wrong but I find myself playing for a little while and then doing everything I can for that day and turning off the game.

Finished Control and the first DLC for, really fun game and I've been a fan of Remedy for the longest.  Wish I had more to do in it and I'd still be playing it.  Hope the 2nd DLC doesn't take too long to come.

I think I've split my time this week between the following:

  • Doom Eternal
  • Jedi Fallen Order
  • Elite Dangerous
  • The Last of Us

But at the same time I have also gone and bought these:

  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Assassin's Creed Oddessy
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider (just started it today which is why I didn't put it in the above list)
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  • Tetris Effect
  • Dreams
  • The Jackbox Party Pack

In my defence, Tetris, Dreams and the Jackbox Party Pack I got hold of so that it can complement Knowledge is Power as party games for the house when we get bored. As for the rest...well, if you're not going to let me go out what do you expect me to spend my money on?! At least I've got things to keep me occupied. :laugh:

Well I've already completed The Last of Us several years ago, I just started it up again because a) I want to be reminded of everything that happened before TLoU2 comes out, and b) it's an awesome game. I'd be comfortable putting it down though and just watching a gameplay run-through on YoutTube.

 

Crash Bandicoot I got because it was one of the first video games I ever owned as a kid, back when it was just called a Playstation. Nostalgia is a ##### though, and the controls haven't lasted too well over the years. For a game that primarily has you jumping from one place to another it's really hit-and-miss on if I stick the landing or not.

 

I've played about an hour of Assassin's Creed but it hasn't grabbed me at the moment so that will take a backseat for a while.

 

But still, I guess even if you remove those entries as well as the party entries...yeah, I've got things to keep me entertained. :p

Can I add you to my PSN? I don't play online much but it is good to compare.

Oh don't get me wrong, I love the series! I just wasn't grabbed by the beginning missions and the daunting size of the thing. Starting simple missions, "go here and kill him. Now go here and kill him" is a bit boring compared to what the other games are asking of me at the moment.

 

I'll send you a PM with my PSN. I warn you though, it might say that I'm online or currently playing a game when I'm not. For example during this isolation thing I'm working from home, so I might take five minutes to relieve some stress by taking out demons and then pause and go back to work rather than shutting the PS4 down. ;)

I started playing The Talos Principle last week. It's not my usual cup of tea, but I'm really enjoying it right now. It's kind of a philosophical, slow paced puzzle game. I really like the atmosphere, very chill, really gets my mind off the whole quarantine shtick. The gameplay is alright for a puzzle game, some might compare it to Portal. I guess I needed a game that wasn't very mind numbing and instead makes me feel kind of clever 😅

I played XCOM: Chimera Squad. Pretty good time waster. I liked not having to deal with base-building and stuff.

Now playing Gears: Tactics. I'm freaking loving this game. Very, VERY unforgiving. lol

Completed The Witcher 2 this weekend after being distracted by No Man's Sky. Loved the game despite its flaws and cannot wait to pick the third one

 

Installed the Dead Space Trilogy for some mindless fun. It's a damn good looking game for its age.

      Eidos-Montréal is making a Guardians of the Galaxy game, launches this October
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Square Enix today announced another Marvel superhero game coming out of one of its studios, joining Avengers from Crystal Dynamics. This time, it is the Guardians of the Galaxy that's being turned into video game form, and Eidos-Montréal is developing. The studio is most known for its RPG series Deus Ex, but here, it's all about third-person superhero action while traveling across the galaxy.

      This is a completely single-player action game following an original story, and the studio has confirmed there won't be any microtransactions or DLC here.

      Interestingly, you will only be taking the role of Peter "Star-Lord" Quill here, the self-proclaimed leader of the Guardians, while the rest of the ragtag team including Rocket, Groot, Drax and Gamora is there for support both in combat and when making dialog choices that continue the storyline.

      “The Eidos-Montréal team is honored to have the opportunity to work on such an iconic franchise alongside our trusted collaborators at Marvel Entertainment,” said David Anfossi, Head of Studio at Eidos-Montréal. “Our teams are known for revisiting IPs and bringing their own twists and craft to the stories and the art surrounding them. As you will experience, it’s no different for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.”

      During combat, players will be able to use Star-Lord's jet boots for quick dodges and short hovers while utilizing his Element Blasters for dealing damage. Special moves that involve the rest of the Guardians can also be triggered while in combat. Eidos-Montréal is also promising a "killer soundtrack" that is a mixture of hits straight from the 80s and original music.

      Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has an October 26, 2021, launch date attached to it, and as for platforms, PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 are gaining the title. It will also be available for cloud play via the GeForce NOW platform. Pre-orders are now live.

      Here are all the Xbox Game Pass arrivals announced at the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The Xbox and Bethesda Showcase today had quite a hefty selection of premieres and updates, including Starfield and Xbox Mini Fridge, and a massive portion of them was also announced to be Xbox Game Pass arrivals on day one. Alongside those, the company also put together another list of already-launched games that will be coming to its subscription platform today.

      The 10 games available today are mostly from Bethesda's catalog that were missing from the previous wave that landed when the ZeniMax acquisition went through. Moreover, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is also here, one of the most well-received RPGs from last year. Here are the games:

      Yakuza: Like a Dragon (Cloud, Console, and PC) Arx Fatalis (PC) Dishonored: Death of the Outsider (PC, Cloud, and Console) Doom (Cloud and Console) Fallout (PC) Fallout 2 (PC) Fallout 3 (PC, Cloud, and Console) Fallout: New Vegas (Newly added for PC, Cloud, and Console) Fallout: Tactics (PC) Rage (Cloud and Console) The Evil Within 2 (PC, Cloud, and Console) Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (PC, Cloud, and Console) As for what's coming later, here's what Microsoft had to show regarding Xbox Game Pass locked in games with at least a release window, sorted by the dates:

      Microsoft Flight Simulator (Cloud, Xbox Series X|S) – July 27 Hades (PC, Cloud, and Console) – August 21 Among Us (Cloud and Console) – 2021 Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance (PC, Cloud, and Console) – June 22 The Ascent (PC, Cloud, and Console) – July 29 Twelve Minutes (PC, Cloud, and Console) – August 19 Psychonauts 2 (PC, Cloud, and Console) – August 25 Aragami 2 (PC, Cloud, and Console)) – September 17 Sable (PC, Cloud, and Console) – September 23 Scorn (PC, Cloud, and Series X|S) – Fall 2021 The Anacrusis (PC, Cloud, and Console) – Fall 2021 Back 4 Blood (PC, Cloud, and Console) – October 12 Age of Empires IV (PC) – October 28 Forza Horizon 5 (PC, Cloud, and Console) – November 9 Shredders (PC, Cloud, and Console) – December 2021 Halo Infinite (PC, Cloud, and Console) – Holiday 2021 Hello Neighbor 2 (PC, Cloud, and Console) – 2021 The Gunk (PC, Cloud, and Console) – 2021 Finally, we get to the games that do not yet have a launch date attached to them, but will still be day one arrivals to the subscription platforms of Microsoft:

      A Plague Tale: Requiem Atomic Heart Redfall Eiyuden Chronicle Hundred Heroes Eiyuden Chronicle Rising Contraband Party Animals Replaced Slime Rancher 2 Somerville S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl Starfield The Outer Worlds 2 As always, Microsoft teased even more game announcements for the service that will be coming soon, which will probably happen later this week to join the first June wave. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is currently discounted to $1 for three months for anyone who wants to give the subscription a try.

      Turtle Rock's Back 4 Blood is coming to Xbox Game Pass on day one
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Turtle Rock Studios, the minds behind the Left 4 Dead series, is currently working on its next project Back 4 Blood. The game had a presence at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase today, both revealing its PVP mode, and that the zombie shooter will be a day one Xbox Game Pass title.

      In more good news for Xbox fans, unlike a few other high-profile launch day releases on the service, both its console and PC variants are getting the game simultaneously.

      The Back 4 Blood's PVP mode, named Swarm, will be familiar to those who enjoyed Versus mode from Left 4 Dead, where humans and special zombies go head-to-head for a competitive experience. See the unveil trailer below.

      First unveiled last year, Back 4 Blood arrives as another cooperative play-focused first-person shooter akin to the studio's previous projects. As a refresher, the zombie shooter lets four players team up against hordes of "infected" that range from the regular walkers (or runners in this case) to special types with various abilities. Eight survivors fill up the human ranks. Each comes with unique abilities like recovering stamina with kills and faster ADS speeds, so players can find a character that fits their playstyle.

      The Warner Bros. published title is definitely a big grab for Xbox Game Pass. Considering it is a $60 game that optimally needs four players, going the subscription route with friends may sound like a very inviting option for Xbox players.

      Back 4 Blood is launching on October 12 across PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.

      The meme is real: Xbox Mini Fridge, launching holiday 2021
      by Florin Bodnarescu

      Back when Microsoft unveiled the Series X at The Game Awards in 2019, some said it looked like a fridge. The monolithic design in fact spawned several memes, and the company gave in, creating a real-life Series X fridge, which it sent to influencers.

      Some folks expressed their wish for a smaller, mini fridge form factor of the meme, to which Aaron Greenberg, Xbox's GM of Marketing, responded:

      Unsurprisingly, Xbox won the voting poll on Twitter and, true to the promise, to cap off today's Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, Microsoft unveiled a small surprise: the Xbox Mini Fridge.

      Powered by the latest in cooling architecture - not to be confused with the Velocity Architecture -, the little appliance mimics the design of its console counterpart, down to the green design of the cooling holes at the top.

      The Xbox Mini Fridge is launching holiday 2021 for an as of yet undisclosed price. This will probably come day one to Game Pass as well.

      Age of Empires IV launches on October 28 across PC and Xbox Game Pass
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      After a 16-year break, Age of Empires is returning on October 28 with its fourth entry. The release date announcement arrived during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase today alongside a new trailer, seen above, revealing a little more gameplay from the highly anticipated real-time strategy game.

      Compared to the previous Age of Empires IV gameplay reveal, you can already see some improvements have been implemented in the latest trailer after feedback. For instance, the weapons and arrows have been scaled down to fit units better, plus the new army colors make them much easier to distinguish from each other.

      Developer Relic Entertainment had already unveiled the English, Chinese, Mongols, and Delhi Sultanate as launch civilizations previously, and now it has been revealed Abbasid Dynasty and the French will also be joining the fray. As for playstyles, the Abbasid Dynasty is focused on technology as well as dominating with their Camel Archers and Riders, while the French will be all about trading and late game supremacy with help from their special units the Royal Knights.

      There will be eight civilizations in total to experience when the game launches, so we still have two more reveals to go.

      Ahead of the October launch, Relic is opening a beta program. Anyone interested in jumping in can become an Age Insider by heading here.

      Pre-orders are now live across Steam and Microsoft Store. Xbox Game Pass subscribers are also getting the game on day one. A Digital Deluxe Edition is also available for pre-order now, which comes with bonus content like the original soundtrack, a handy chart with unit counters, a digital painting by Craig Mullens, and in-game cosmetic content.
