Celeste



The weirdest coincidence happened last night. I was working on a list of games that I wanna talk about in January and Celeste made the list. Now what's funny about that is when I went on Youtube afterwards, a YouTuber was doing a let's play of this game and the first episode went up that same night. So I checked it out. And, although I'm usually a pretty big fan of indie platformers, I may just pass on this one. At this point in my gaming adventure, indie platformers / 2D platformers really have to go the extra mile to make it impressive. Going based solely on what I've seen through videos of the game, it does genuinely look good. I will say that much. The movement seems fluid and the graphics are cool, though again I feel like the pixel graphics art style is getting a bit overused. I can't blame devs for that though especially since Celeste was developed by a small team. A huge achievement no doubt and the game has been fairly well received from what I can tell. It did receive an award at the Game Awards and although that's impressive, I really just don't have very much motivation to get into another platformer regardless of how it was received. Just not my kind of genre these days but I appreciate Celeste for what it brought.

Big props to small devs coming out with these amazing games though. Quite an achievement on its own.

I still haven't played smash but I hear it's great. I agree as well. And mario party looks like so much fun. I think I prefer console these days but PC will be my go to if need be.

Just think Sim City but with Roller Coasters, so maybe? I once made a pretty amazing roller-coaster where the thrill was that you sped down a slope into a crater with no water. It was one of the most popular rides at my park.

Planet Coaster > Rollercoaster Tycoon bc you could build a ride that just launches guests to their deaths and they'll love you for it

Far Cry 5



While I'm not entirely too surprised, I have yet to play Far Cry 5. Despite people saying it's amazing and it's definitely worth buying, I've just never really had a taste for the Far Cry games. I get it, they're definitely my kind of game. From what I've seen this game does look amazing and maybe one day I'll just man up and play it. But I played a bit of Far Cry 3 and while the experience was fun, it wasn't fun enough to keep me interested so I just sort of fell away from the series.

What I will say though is from what I have seen of Far Cry 5, it definitely looks like if it's your kind of game, it fits the bill. The graphics are certainly great and the gameplay looks like a lot of fun. I don't really think it's the genre that bugs me, I think it's just the style of game that Far Cry is. I dunno. Could just be me being dumb and maybe I should just play the Far Cry games because god damn who knows, maybe i'll enjoy it.

So, I guess the consensus is, maybe? I mean, anything is possible. I went through this exact same thing with Assassins Creed Odyssey. I fell out of the love for the series as a whole and never really bothered to go back. But then I did and it was great. Maybe Far Cry 5 could have that same effect to where I'll enjoy the game enough to perhaps fully complete it. I don't doubt it, I just find it highly unlikely that I'll be buying the game anytime soon as I've already got enough games to play as it is.

My friend was telling me today about his Game of the Year, Return of Obra Dinn. Have you played it or heard anything about it? If so, what's your opinion?
