It’s December, baby. December! The great wave of fall video games has crashed upon us, spraying great gouts of #content as far as the eye can see.
As the weather chills and the holidays beckon, what have you been playing? I’ll go first.
I’m still playing Just Cause 3, both to keep an eye on performance patches and just because it’s pretty fun to just screw around and unlock more upgrades. Ditto Fallout 4, though after reaching a pivotal story moment (you’ll know what I’m talking about if you’ve gotten there), I more or less totally lost interest in finishing the story or even playing all that much. It’s not because I hated the twist or anything, it’s just... I don’t know. It kinda lost me. I always do this with Bethesda open-world games, though. I’ll be back at some point down the road. I’ve been on a hiatus from Destiny but I plan to play a bit this month, if only to see what raid challenges are all about. I just finished playing through Cibele, which is a pretty darn cool game that I liked quite a bit. Oh, young love!
I’ve also been playing (and really liking) The Room 3 on iPad, and so far it’s been a cool evolution of Fireproof’s approach to puzzles. Everything is nestled within everything else, and each time a new level or area unfolds, it’s hard not to grin. I’ve been planning to play more SOMA, Undertale, and Bloodborne: The Old Hunters before the end of the year, because I started all three, liked all three, and then got pulled away by other things. Gotta admit, I’m a little nervous about getting sucked back into Bloodborne’s thrall, though.

The M1 chip delivers 3.5x faster performance than the previous generation all while using way less power. Get up to 18 hours of battery life.
I’m sure there are 20 other games I’m leaving off—I’ve got to get back to Black Ops III’s zombies mode, have barely touched Star Wars: Battlefront, and am keen to play some Rainbow Six: Siege—but for now, that’s enough from me.
How about all of you? What are you playing this December?
