Currently 60 hours in playing Witcher 3...

The nuanced and meaningful social interactions between Geralt and everyone else are definitely a highlight for me. The way it doesnt railroad you and how some small but character- and immersion-building innocous choices can rear their head hours later in unforeseeable ways makes the world seem very believable and realistic. Everything is just so interesting, even the small sidequests. So much diverse content. Loooove this game.

The only gripes I have with the game are the gargantuan loading times and the constant fight against terrain and oncoming trees while traversing the world.


And I finally got around to playing Dark Souls 3

Its OK.

gargantuan loading times


Shouldn't be a problem with a PC and an SSD drive but on a console...

--------------
Finally got the free versions of Starcraft and Saint's Row 2. The former it's for keeps, no more cd-keys.

The latter was indeed a buggy ride. Despite that the game was almost a decade old, it was very slow at 1080p and with one of the most advanced GPUs right now. And vehicle handling fucking sucks, it nearly made my stomach sick at trying to control the car.

Outlast 2 was okay.

I usually enjoy vague endings that don't tie everything up at the end, but this ending left too many things unexplained and I didn't feel satisfied.

I really hope there will be a dlc or Outlast 3.

Outlast 2 spoilers  SPOILER: Show
The ending is basically meant to mean that everyone has gone insane (including the playable character) from Murkoff radio towers in the area. It doesn't really say anything conclusive because the protagonist's grasp on reality is basically non-existent by that point. Also, it's heavily implied there is no baby; Murkoff's experiments can produce phantom pregnancies that kill the women afflicted with them. The problem is that you would never know any of this without having played the first game and read a lot of in-game documents or supplemental materials.

I always thought I might be bad
Now I know that it's true
Because I think you're so good
And I'm nothing like you

Alright, now the story makes more sense.

I still don't feel fully satisfied about the end though.

I hope that if there's a dlc coming, it should allow us to play as someone (like the protagonist of Whistleblower dlc) who has little more insight on behind the scenes.
