I also recently decided to play Skyrim again. It's been awhile and wanted to have an adventure again. I'd rather be playing Oblivion to be honest, but on PS5 this is the option that's easily present. I'd like to play some other stuff but haven't found a whole lot of interest as of late.

Nice, I started another playthrough back in October, this time on Special Edition. Finished the main quest now doing Dawnguard. What kind of character are you playing?

Been a while since I updated here. Still throwing my time at FFX's endgame. I've completed all of the Monster Arena (including defeating Nemesis - woo!), got all of the Celestial Weapons, and am never playing Blitzball again - blech. All that's left is completing the sphere grid for each character (which I'm making good progress with), and then taking on all of the Dark Aeons and finally Penance. Should only take the rest of my life!

Final update on Final Fantasy X - I finally finished (finally)! I'm sure I'll play through the story again in a couple years because I love it, but I definitely won't be maxing stats again. Happy to have done it and call it a day!

Getting back to A Plague Tale: Innocence with renewed vigor, especially since a sequel was announced! Still loving it.

I also started and beat Oddworld: New n Tasty. Oddworld was a series I grew up seeing and hearing about, but never actually played. Glad I got around to it! The gameplay mechanics feel really unique. The movement and platforming is punishing until you can master it. The puzzles aren't so difficult, but that's okay because they never feel dull. And the overall premise really resonates with me. Currently working on completing it - making my way through a Hard Mode run to rescue everyone. Will try a speed run at some point too!

Reached 100% completion of A Plague Tale - it was fantastic! I wasn't expecting it to end with so many questions left unanswered, but knowing there's a sequel in the works has me excited!

I got burnt out on trying to complete New n Tasty. I'll get back to it eventually, but putting it to the side for now.

I've had Control for a while, installed it a couple weeks ago, and am finally down to dive in. Huge titles like this always feels like such an undertaking, but I'm finally willing to take that plunge with this title.

I also recently got a physical copy of Pikmin 3 Deluxe during a sweet, sweet sale. Excited to throw the lil veggie bugs around again!

Also looking to find my zen with Sky: Children of the Light now that it's on Switch. I struggle to become invested when playing such titles on my phone, so this is the release I've been waiting for!

I played Sky: Children of the Light too. I was left rather nonplussed by it. It was pretty, had some nice music and visuals, but it felt incredibly derivative of Journey without being able to capture any of what made that game so special. It wasn't a bad time by any means, and it had some great looking scenes, but it was painfully clear that it was just imitating what came before and didn't really do much to justify its own existence.

During a single playthrough I didn't mind the monetisation to be a problem at least. It's mostly based around buying currency that you use for cosmetics, that you also gain through playing the game. It seems very intent on having you play through multiple times to unlock stuff for your character, and I assume that's where the grind comes in to make you cough up out of impatience. But I'm not really sure why anyone would want to repeatedly grind a game like this. Seems totally at odds with what it's trying to do, to the point where it feels redundant.
