  • Bloodstained: Ritual of the NightXbox One – This is a Metroidvania in the same style as games like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. In fact the man behind Symphony of the Night is the one who created Bloodstained. This has been one of my favorite games to play since it came out and I finally decided it was time to defeat the final boss after months and months of putting it off. I’m still playing the game in New Game + mode, but it feels nice to have finally tackled this one fully.
  • The Forever War by Joe HaldemanGoodreads – I bought a few SF Masterworks last year but never got around to even reading them, so I decided to pick it up last week and see if my brain could handle the idea of reading again. I’m very middle of the road about this to be honest, the sci-fi bits were really great and the idea of time dilation being mixed with combat deployment really worked well. I just felt that the social commentary was…off. I can see how many see it as progressive, but I can really see how others see it as very regressive. The book is somewhat unclear on which side of the message it’s supposed to be on. So this was just a 3 star read for me.

Now

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum Xbox One- This is a replay for me and I am enjoying it so much. This is probably one of the best superhero games out there (the other is the newest Spiderman, so go do yourself a favor and get that one too). I’m not going for the 100% completion on it, so it’s just been fun to unwind.
  • Bloom by Kenneth OppelGoodreads – This was an unsolicited review book that came in over the weekend and it seemed interesting enough that it seemed a good pick to help me slip back into reading. So far, at about 90 pages in, it’s pretty good.

  • Borderlands 2 – Xbox One – I finally got around to playing and finishing this one. It’s such a good series, and I’m looking forward to playing the third one when it drops in a week or so.
  • Glass Masquerade – Xbox One – This is a very low key stain glass puzzle game, it’s quite pretty and I used it for daily achievements as well as to unwind a bit. It’s an easy 100% too, which is always nice.

Now

  • Omensight – Xbox One– This is pretty interesting, it’s a bit of a hack and slash game but it has a story that requires you to travel back in time and learn about the events leading up to a specific moment to try and figure out what’s happening so you can prevent it. It’s also quite pretty.
  • Gears of War 2 – Xbox One/360 – This is an old Xbox 360 title. I never really got into this series when these were new, but the new one coming out soon (Gears 5) looks interesting so I’m trying to play through the old ones. It’s kind of dumb fun.
