Holy hell, it’s November. What happened to 2015?
With a new month comes a new crop of games to play. When that month happens to be November, we usually get a whole bunch of new games. There’s certainly no shortage of things to play, so I wanted to see how you all were choosing to spend your gaming time. I’ll go first.
My main three games at the moment are Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, The Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone, and Divinity: Original Sin: Enhanced Edition. I’ve been jumping between all three of those and still somehow finding time to eat, which hasn’t been easy. Syndicate is the most I’ve liked an Assassin’s Creed game in a while, even though it’s still got too much of that peculiar Assassin’s Creed jankiness going on. Hearts of Stone is just brilliant—Luke and I have both written about it separately—and I continue to be impressed with CD Projekt as I work my way through it. I’m equally impressed with the updated version of Divinity, and wish I had another 50 hours to play it all over again.
Other than that, let’s see… my interest in Destiny is currently on the wane, mostly because I’ve started to bottom out on endgame activities. As usual with this sort of game, Destiny’s fun-to-frustration ratio gets bleaker the deeper you get into the endgame. I had a great time playing Trials of Osiris this weekend, but an awful time trying to beat Oryx in the Hard Mode raid last week. I think my time with the game may shrink to a few Trials cards per weekend, at least for the time being.
I also played some Clue over the weekend. Yes, Clue. The board game. I hadn’t played in a while, and… Clue is pretty solid! I’d forgotten how much meta-strategy and observational detective work that game allows for.
It’s looking like it’ll be possible to get my plate clear before a certain post-apocalyptic RPG launches next week, which, phew.
How about you? What are you playing this November?
