I finally finished XC2. It was a good game, though I realized while playing it that I'd be happier with fewer cutscenes or cutscenes that were more varied in their film-making approaches. The heavy reliance on cutscenes towards the end made me wish I were playing the game that had been fun up to there.
I've been playing Worms: W.M.D. on the Switch, Rust for the PC (think heavily PvP crafting/building game), and Avernum 3, the latest iteration of an RPG series I really like. It's like a low-budget NWN or modern Ultima - I really love the world of the game.
"Than seyde Merlion, "Whethir lyke ye bettir the swerde othir the scawberde?" "I lyke bettir the swerde," seyde Arthure. "Ye ar the more unwyse, for the scawberde ys worth ten of the swerde; for whyles ye have the scawberde uppon you, ye shall lose no blood, be ye never so sore wounded. Therefore kepe well the scawberde allweyes with you." --- Le Morte Darthur, Sir Thomas Malory
