Currently on the ole' docket:
-Smash Bros. Ultimate (World of Light)
-Dark Souls Remastered on Switch
-probably should play some Xbox gamepass shit lol


1. Red Dead Redemption 2 - 1/1/2019 - 40 something hours? Idk lol
Score: 5/5
so yeah I obviously chunked away at this mostly in 2018, but I finally finished it on my final day of vacation lol. anyway, this game has a fucking incredible narrative imo. some of the character building a plot development is some of the best i've ever experienced. it's probably the single best prequel, narrative wise , i've ever seen too. that said, the game has some really weird/dumb gameplay issues that it really shouldn't have. the first like 10-15 hours are a total slog. open world rockstar games still control and feel like dogshit, and this one adds shit tons of button holding on top of it. but i found the story so fuckin' sweet that i can overlook all the large pile of minor grievances i have with the rest of the game so fuck it.

2. Astro Bot: Rescue Mission - 1/9/2019 - 8 hours or so
Score: 5/5
okay first off this game is fucking ADORABLE. but it's also really fucking fun. at the end of the day it's just a platformer, but it does a bunch of really cool and unique-to-VR shit that just constantly keeps you smiling like "damn that's clever". the boss fights were also all really fun to play. this is a must play if you have a PS VR for sure. my only complaint is the soundtrack could have used a couple more songs. by the end of the game you've heard the same song reused like three (or more?) times. it didnt matter too much because the songs included were friggin sweet tho.

3. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - 1/13/2019 - 30 somethin' hours
Score: 5/5
by 'beat' i mean i unlocked every character and also beat world of light. beat classic mode a handful of times too but whatever. anyway, this is probably my favorite smash ever, and rightly so because EVERYONE IS HERE. there's much god damn content in this game i really don't know how sakurai has maintained any of his sanity. i look forward to smashing for many days and years to come. also the belmonts fucking RULE.



Ok so I got 1301/1302 spirits in Smash (all that you can get w/o buying Let's Go Pikachu) and completed Classic with all characters, so I'm counting that as done. There are still ~20 challenges left, but I'm not good enough to complete them, so eh.

Great game.

i mean i counted mine in the 2018 thread simply when finishing the story mode

as far as i'm concerned, in a fighting game, you've "finished" it when you finish the story


my personal rule for these threads has been a game is done when you feel like it is done in your heart of hearts goodjob;

Finished Night in the Woods! Well on my way to not even getting close to 50 games this year.

Edit: Also played through What Remains of Edith Finch, which was fantastic.
