    It feels like it's a bit easier to find shiny pokemon in Omega Ruby. I think they increased the encounter rate.

    Also Shinobi III because why not?

    Mine too! It's satisfying that Skyrim itch with it's beautiful graphics and the loads of side quests. Not liking the Cauldrons though.

    If you have not purchased the new XCOM 2 expansion (War of the Chosen), DON'T yet - it is a buggy mess and all the best mods don't work with it yet either.

    I still like it, but am mostly just doing the raid at this point. Not much else left to earn.

    I'm finally digging in and finishing ME:Andromeda. Good game marred by some wonky animations, pity the reaction was so harsh as to make the devs/publisher drop it.

    Not sure if I've mentioned it already, but for the past quite a while my game of choice has been Heroes of the Storm. Mostly playing with my son, versus AI, but occasionally versus AI on my own, and even more rarely joining in a brawl. I seem to do pretty well with Sargent Hammer, decently with Tyrael, and declining through a long list of heroes from there. If you know the game, you'll realize that my best heroes both lack skill shots and the need to click on allies at critical times -- I do appreciate that in this quick-twitch game there are some heroes that you can play decently while lacking fast reflexes and good hand-eye coordination.

    Guild Wars 2 recently came out with their second expansion, Path of Fire. There are mounts now! Yes! And a good story, big maps to explore, and some pretty nifty new elite specializations.

    My favorite hero, on the other hand, is Nova! I got the Novazon skin for her and everything.

    Ham Ham is also fun, but Nova is just evil. Long range, Lethal decoys...

    Yah, my son loves Nova and is pretty devastating with her. Which works out great when I play Hammer -- if the other team doesn't stop me I blast through defenses quickly, and if they try to stop me he snipes them down :)

    I still have to unlock all of my subclasses. Trying to get my characters strong enough to do Nightfall. Enjoying crucible and doing the strikes.

    I play on Xbox One. Which system are you using?

    Bummer.

    I also wanted to mention that this game rocks with headphones. Love the audio sound quality!

    Friends got me into 7 Days to Die. On the current build we're doing a group server, but I've also got a solo game going where I'm over level 140.

    Nothing wrong with that! :D I got a small selection of classic games for my NES and still play them once in a while. Love the original Zelda and Super Mario 3. :blush:

    I think Mega Man 2 was my favorite, of the classic NES Mega Man games.
