    I am shocked that Avengers made it into 2023 in an active development state, if we're being honest

    I think I actually probably did bet, at some point, that it would be dead by the end of 2022

    managed Owl's first phase

    was not especially lured in by his "wait, wait! please...", but I did consider that they've lied to me in the past: Lady Butterfly, Guardian Ape, and Genichiro all had more phases than their deathblow nodes indicated. It seemed unlikely but technically possible they were lying in the other direction, pretending there were two phases when there's only one.

    ... yeah, not so much. Definitely at least two phases.

    Avengers final balance patch will be end of March, and it will also disable the Marketplace (converting any Credits to various Resources) and gift all players all Marketplace, Hero Card, and Shipment cosmetics (since those systems will no longer be available).

    Spider-man is staying Playstation exclusive.

    The game will no longer be purchasable after September 30th and will receive no more tech support or anything after that date.

    I liked Marvel Avengers and played a bunch with my friends when it came out, but the lack of any real endgame content had us all drift off from it. I liked all the new character story modes I played, but I didn't even finish the Black Panther one because it ran like shit on the XBox one.

    I just reinstalled it to try out now that I've got the Series X.

    I played the demo and thought it played like poopy ass-butt.

    Friends have told me it gets better once you get to the end game and start unlocking lots of other shit for characters, and I actually own a cheap copy that I got used, but also I didn't enjoy beating up Super Adaptoids that much I guess

    I started playing AC: Rogue.

    My early (less than five hours) impression of the gameplay (haven't seen enough of story to comment on that), is like when you're in high school, and you ask your proactive intelligent friend to copy their essay, they say sure but make sure to change it up enough, and you just copy it all, then ctrl-f and replace all commas with semi colons.

    You can tell it's pretty much the same but just a bit worse

    Rogue's on foot gameplay is actually significantly better than Black Flag in a number of ways I could essay on if asked but will refrained until requested.

    I finished up Midnight Suns
    Easily walked through the final battle, although I didn't bump up the difficulty and got everyone's legendaries so that was to be expected. I enjoyed my time with the game a lot, but didn't feel like making it more difficult because I wanted to move on. Sequel bait at the end is whatever, especially since we don't even get to see the team past that beyond the stinger.

    I may do the DLC depending on how it reviews, but Storm is the only character of the four I really want to get.

    And speaking of AC I am back to Odyssey, my warm-up enemy camp swiftly had a soldier sitting down on an invisible chair, it's like I never left.

    I think my PlayStation account still has the clip I recorded when I played AC: Unity of jumping down a foot off a wall to the street and falling immediately into the endless void like Ozzie Smith in the Simpsons episode Homer at the Bat.

    Oh you are talking about glitches. Yeah black flag has soooooo many glitches its hilarious. I love the one that has a gaping hole in the world where the boat should be, and then the boat rises up like davy jones from his locker in pirates of the caribbean.

    Or when I kicked a dude off the top of a mast and he flew into orbit.

    Every game since unity is buggy as hell there is no difference between them.

    Im just talking about the gameplay, not bugs. Shay is a total monster and Id argue is the most powerful protag in the series in terms of what he can do and all the options he has.

    I hope your random bug bad luck lottery eases up enough to actually get to use these options on Shay cos theyre pretty cool. Rogue is probably my second favourite game in the series after brotherhood in terms of how batshit insane overpowered the protag is and how much I like its story and general world.

    (I don't count Black Flag as an Assassin's Creed game, it's from another, better series, hailing from the land of FUCK YEAH PIRATES)

    It's weird how much I want a tomb raider game that's just a video game-ass video game. I'm not even a fan of the old tomb raiders. I think I've played maybe an hour of anniversary.

    But like, Lara Croft is a legend. Still one of the most recognizable game characters. She does sweet flips and acrobatics and dual wields guns and kills fucking dinosaurs for some reason. That character really deserves a game where she can just spout one liners and do all that stuff.

    Anything to get away from the reboot trilogy torture porn uncharted bullshit. I tried the second game on ps plus and after I did a dumb qte segment where she gets fucked up by a bear I had a trophy pop titled "she's stronger than she looks". Fuck off.
