Recently finished Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
and had a blast. The combat is fluid and doesn't get boring. The banter between the orcs (technically uruks) is hilarious. Before a captain engages you in combat, everything stops for a moment and they belt out a nasty quip. Oh man, it puts a stupid grin on my face every time.
On the multiplayer front, I've been having tons of fun with Payday 2
. It's odd because it's kind of a grind, which normally turns me off very quickly, but for reasons I can't put my finger on, I keep coming back for more. It's not entirely serious, certainly larger than life, so I think I enjoy the ridiculousness of it all.
I took advantage of the Steam sales over the holidays, refilling my queue. Some games on the horizon, probably played in this order:
- The Walking Dead: Season Two
- Alien Isolation
- Dragon Age: Inquisition
- The Banner Saga
- Dark Souls II
These should keep me busy for some time.
