How's it going everyone?

Since a lot of us have some major downtime with the state of the world right now. I'm wondering what everyone is playing?

For me, it's been A LOT of Pokemon! I finished Sword, and now playing through Shield. I'm usually not a huge completest, but I'm so close to finishing my Pokedex! There is about 400 Pokemon in these games and I'm over 300. This is why I'm playing through Shield, because if you know the Pokemon series, then you understand some Pokemon are only available in each game. I would highly suggest these games if you have a switch. I've been playing Pokemon since I was about 8, and 22 years later it's still one of my favorite series. There are also 2 expansions coming out later this year adding more Pokemon new and old! So I'm definitely looking forward to that. I also got around to finishing up Lets go Pikachu! which was also a lot of fun!

As for consoles, I've been playing a lot of the new Call Of Duty: Warzone. The whole battle royal thing has become super popular in the last few years, and it kinda seems like you either love it or hate it. For me I find it highly enjoyable. I've played most of the popular ones on the market, and up til now Apex Legends has been my fav. I suck at PUBG haha, but still have a lot of fun playing. Didn't really enjoy Fortnite :/ but this new COD has added some cool aspects to this. One being The Gulag! basically in a battle royal if you die, then you're dead. Some have ways that your team mates can revive you, but with this one if you die then you are sent to The Gulag, and are put in a 1v1 battle with a basic weapon, and if you survive you come back. This will get your blood flowing, but feels so rewarding if you win!

Also looking forward to some new releases this year. Resident Evil 3, Last of us 2, Final Fantasy 7, Cyberpunk! So many cool things on the horizon!

What are you playing now? What are you looking forward too? I wanna know!

Stay safe everyone and wash your damn hands!

Peace & Love!

There are indeed so many cool titles looming in the near future. The one I am most hyped about is Elden Ring, which is being made by Dark Souls / Bloodborne man (Miyazaki) and George R.R. Martin. Its supposedly an open world RPG with elements from those games.

As for what I am currently playing...I just took another run through the Bioshock series and am currently about to start Infinite. Definitely one of my favorite all time franchises--the story and gameplay are engaging and mindblowing.

I'm gonna go wash my hands now... lol

Yeah the world is getting a little crazy huh? I have been wanting to get into Pokemon on my 3DS or on the Switch for awhile now, I am especially interested in the multiplayer features...but I still have more to do in Breath of the Wild! D: I haven't even touched the DLC yet. I did see that Warzone has blown up very quickly! FF VII and Cyberpunk are going to be sick but as with everything else, likely delayed. :(

I've heard great things about Elden Ring and am interested in it. Never got into Dark Souls or Bloodborne, or Sekiro so perhaps this will be my entry into FromSoftware titles. We will see! BioShock 1 and Infinite are my favorites, and they are the ones made by Irrational Games.

I've personally been playing Battlefield 4 (I know it's a bit older but still a lot of fun and people online) on Xbox One, Battlefield V on PC, and Destiny 2 on both XB1 and PC (gotta support da Clan!). I'm waiting for the new Wastelanders expansion to come to Fallout 76 so I can get back into that, I was definitely sinking a lot of time into it before. I want to try out Warlords of New York for Division 2 but am probably going to wait for a sale. Halo Reach is also available on Master Chief Collection now, and Halo 1 was just added to the PC version as well so they definitely deserve some time.

Wash yer damn hands!

If you ever want to get into Pokemon, you know who to come to! ;) haha As for Breathe of the Wild... I still have so much to do! I got super into that for a while, but at the moment I'm taking a breather lol

Warzone has taken up waaaay too much of my free time, but with the anticipation for Resident evil 3 I started playing through RE2. If you really want to get your heart pounding put some headphones on, turn the lights off, And play some Resident Evil. God damn! that shit is fun. My Wife laughs at me every time I get scared.

I never played Infinite, but I really enjoyed the first 2 Bioshock games. Those games definitely had some creepy moments. I've tired to play Dark Souls, but that shits not for me haha I may have to check out Eldan ring tho

I have been playing MLB The Show 20 and Final Fantasy XIV. I almost pulled the trigger on the Division 2 expac but decided against it. My game time has actually decreased with this whole Quarantine thing as I am having to work longer hours now.

I really don't have the time! Those two games that I listed are a huge time sink, plus FF VII will be out soon.
