Yeah, that's a really tough number to estimate, especially since I'm currently working on my huuuuuge backlog and I play FFXIV which takes up a good chunk of my single-player time. But otherwise, I'd probably say 8-10 per year, seems like a good estimate. Still working on finishing P5 Strikers and learning Guilty Gear Strive with a friend.

Oh my God, Kratos’s voice is like if you mixed a bunch of diamonds together and put them into someone’s lungs. This game is insane.

Finished DMC 1 for the first time, after that final boss took about a month to beat, holy crap man. The combat is fun with a cool variety of weapons to choose from, and the soundtrack is kick-ass. However, the controls feel very clunky because of the constant camera switches every time I move to a different angle. Overall, not bad, but it’s a bit dated. Dunno if I wanna remake of this game, but I wouldn’t mind.

Now onto DMC 2. 6 missions, and *sigh* what a pain in the butt. I swear all I have done on that game is just shoot, shoot and shoot. There’s no challenge within the enemies and bosses, just hold square and jump and you win. What the hell happened? Is there any reason that the combat became a HUGE step down from the previous game? The infected chopper has got to be one of the WORST bosses I have every played in DMC. I looked some videos to see if there was a way to kill it faster, but it turns out all they did was do what I did LOL! Also I’m noticing that Dante has rarely spoken so far. Giving me some serious Venom Snake vibes…

Anyways, DMC 2 is really boring so far, but I really want to know where Dante and the story goes with this, which I guess is my only motivation for this game.

Just finished God of War. For a game about a bunch of douchey Norse gods, they managed to tell a very human story. Great combat and I loved the characters. GOTY 2021 for me. Might try Persona 5 next.

Beat Mass Effect One and moved on to Mass Effect 2

I used to LOVE Mass Effect one and now I like it but think its sequel holds up much better. Mass Effect 2 is defiantly in my top games ever made

So I got an M1 Mac mini this spring and the first game I downloaded was planet coaster. Freaking love it. I was highly addicted to RCT3 and always wanted to play planet coaster. This is the first project I worked on. It's my version of Velocicoaster inside a gravity building. It features 3 launches and a few inversions. The story goes that it was best to enclose the velociraptor's because they kept escaping. But of course, they had to add a thrill coaster to the encloser lol. Thus Velocicoaster: Escape Run! Enjoy

Currently engrossed in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies (Android), I've always been a fan of the AA series, and I'm doing a bit of catch up since I've never got a 3DS. Last one I played was the fan translation of Ace Attorney Investigations 2 (A wonderful game where it's still unfortunate it never got a official localization.), so DD has been a rather fun one to get back into with the 3D sprites, animated cutscenes and a whole lot more mechanics. Currently on the 2nd episode and just finished up the second day of investigating, and it's been a fun return so far!

Just finished Kingdom Hearts 3 on Sunday. I enjoyed the first 2/3 fine enough, but the entire third act of the game is balls-to-the-wall insanity in fan service. Which is often a bad thing in movies and TV, but oddly enough works for video games.

Finished up the main story of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies a couple days ago and I really enjoyed it! It was a nice return to the series and I enjoyed the various new mechanics and characters. The finale case is probably one of my personal favorites along with the finale of Trials and Tribulations as it ramped up pretty quick with some satisfying character moments and intensity. It also pulled off a pretty dang good twist, and provided several moments which probably gave the game it's "M" rating.

All in all, it was a blast to play and I look forward to starting up the next game in the series fairly soon.
Also, before I got the game I noticed a bunch of reviews stating issues with the Android version such as it crashing around the cutscenes. It happened to me once, but only once. I don't constantly run a whole bunch of apps on my phone, so that might have helped with the game running smoothly. Regardless, even if it did crash on me again, I wouldn't have lost a lot of time since I run with the classic Sierra Point and Click adage, "Save Early, Save Often.".
