I had to give a time out of playing Final Fantasy XV and Resident Evil 7 at the same time. Both games have characters with the same strong accent which I find dreadful to hear constantly. That was a first. Oo

Meanwhile, tried a bit of Bridge Constructor Portal, which is entertaining as far as puzzle game goes, adding GLaDOS lines to it for a flavor.

Adding Tusk and Ember and Arc Warden to my list of Dota 2 heroes for practice. Arc Warden requires me to add some key bindings to my brain.

Heroes-based proposal thread On hold, while I'm writing my book. =)

I was duped into playing Fortnite, I know, chav game and all, poor mechanically and with the worst community ever, where you get gangbanged by a bunch of 10 year olds with their "pro" settings and their reflexes.
But my best buddy is fixated on it, so we play it together, and I now  understand the charm of the game. Having an SMG, a Gatling and a Grenade launcher then using them to make a barrage of shots is incredibly satisfying, I had my best friend rage it me because I didn't give him tine to defend himself, said buddy shot me while I was getting my weapons, that was karmic justice.
Otherwise it's the worst game ever, because you're gonna get killed by just walking down a hill, because people apparently are this good with sniper rifles.
I'm ashamed of myself for playing such a casual game.

Anyway, what I'm actually doing right now is fooling around with RPG maker MV, making an idiotic story about a Drunken fool that finds the "Invincible Sword", unfortunately showing it would be nearly useless since I'm making it in Italian, and I'd have to put in an extra effort to translate it, maybe once I finish it. (If ever it happens)

I've currently finished the introductory chapter, it got much longer than the initial expected plot (I planned on making it extremely short, two dungeons and the final boss, now you have to traverse continents to end the first chapter, whoops.)

Went back to Starcraft II to play the Terran campaign (again) and maybe the other ones to.

Dang the game is 8 years old now, but it's still a joy to look at. The graphics are so finely crafted and full of details that you will always find something new. And it's always fun.

Love it or hate it, Blizzard knows how to make their games...

PS: I wonder if I should get Nova Ops campaign. It pricey and got lukewarm reviews, but it's some more fun stuff I didn't try.

EDIT: Had some free time on me so I finally managed to finish Xenoblade Chronicles 2. It is a monster of a game in terms of content, but I focused on finishing the main story.

Generally I have mixed feelings about the game. It was a fun and unique expierience with likeable characters. The battle system, while confusing at the beginning, is quite complex and immersive when you learn it. Alas the plot was so-so. Well, on a grand scale it was an enjoyable and epic story with solid and meaningful overall message. But the morality of some characters, overcomplication of some plot elements and confusing time skips dragged it down. I know it's a JRPG story, so it's bound to be confusing, but it was simply too much at times. And unfortunately the game had some elements that I simply hate in JRPG's:
- layers upon layers of needles mechanics. For instance I know there are people who enjoy customization, but giving zounds of possible abilities to attach to characters, each of them further broken down into levels clogg your inventory so much. Plus multitude of items, which seemingly fulfill the same role. And at the end of the day, there only a handful of items that really matter. Plus RNG is king in this game.
- irritating "run around like idiot form point A to B and back", elongated quests
- really confusing navigation (when it comes to quest and the overall "what to do next"). One of the worst I've ever seen...
- idiotic enemy engagement system. Examples? Simply by walking you can be attacked and killed on spot by a flying enemy out of nowhere that's 30 lvl's above you. You can fight a hard monster for 20 minutes (yes there are such long battles as enemies can have a lot of hp), and be destroyed by his enragment (boosts his strength when around half HP), or another monster which joins the fight (another monster can simply walk in, and it can be a lvl 90 monster, tough luck). And because the fights can happen on the smallest plot of lands your battle can simply end because your enemy blows you away from a ridge into an endless pit :/

Sorry for such a rant, but this needed to be said about this game. If anyone is interested it's still one of the biggest RPG's on Switch. I can recommend it cause ultimately it's a fun and epic game with a lot of depth in it (the battle system is quite unique), but be prepared for some frustrating moments.
