Cyberpunk 2077 | Tried

 OK, here's a game I tried, but that I put down after about 3 hours of gameplay (and one achievement).  It's Cyberpunk 2077!   I played this on my Xbox One.  Despite the early hate for the game, I didn't really find that many issues with the graphics of this game on the Xbox One. Sure, there was some clipping, but what can you expect?The setting of the game is "Night City,"

Mortal Kombat XI | Done

And here we are! Drum roll, please!   I've caught up with all my video game backlog!  😂. I finished on 7/1/2023As I mentioned in the previous blog post, I got into MK XI right after I completed the story of MK X.  I started calling this MK: TNG, because you spend a lot of time getting an exposé to the kids of some of the main characters from past MK games, and it sort of felt

Year in Xbox 2023

 And...the final Year in Review for 2023 (seems like last year had fewer than before).  This one for gaming, and specifically on xbox.  It's no surprise that my game of the year was Assassin's Creed Valhalla.  I think in 2022 my most played game was AC: Odyssey.

Mortal Kombat X | Done

Almost done with my backlog! Yay!  OK, this one I finished the main campaign around June 2023.  I had forgotten that Mortal Kombat 9, 10, and 11 were a trilogy,  so when I started this game I had an "oh yeaaaahhh" feeling as the story seemed to be picking up from where it left off (or at least that was what I thought was happening...)Anyway, from a story plot perspective, here's what

Hivebusters | Done

Right after Gears 5, I jumped into the expansion game, titled Hivebusters.  This felt like a short game, but it was rather enjoyable! This one was also completed in  August 2022, and I think it took about 3-5 hours to complete.The game introduces a new squad,brings back some retired characters from past installments of the game (like Col. Hoffman), and a new location with a tropical island

Gears 5 | Done

Here's another review for a game that I finished in August 2022... so a little while ago 😂. Let's see what I remember from this (and the notes from my stub).  Gears of War 5 (Or just "Gears," apparently...) is the second game in a new trilogy?  It's a continuation of Gears of War 4, and it still follows the same group of Kait, JD, and Del (and their robot Jack) on new adventures.

Gears of War 4 | Done

Completed July 2022Why yes! It did take a while for me to write a little something about this game 😂. It's been in my drafts folder since July 2022 and over the holidays I've been going through my drafts to see what I can write about, and what I can just let go.  Since I like the Gears franchise, I thought I'd add my 2c about this game.Just to set the scene, Gears of War 4 takes place 25 years

Deus Ex: Human Revolution | Done

 Here's the most recently finished game: Deux Ex: Human Revolution.   I finished this game on November 4, 2023.  I'm trying a new tactic and writing about games now in a more recent order (i.e., writing about the ones I finished most recently) to see if I catch up on my blogging topic backlog - 😂Anyway, I had started this game back in my Xbox 360 days about ten years ago.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla | Done

You know... I don't remember when I completed this game (or at the very least I said "OK I am done") - Based on when the achievements I unlocked were timestamped, it must have been April 2023.I wanted to finish this game before the new AC: Mirage game launched, and hey - goal achieved!In this game I chose to play as the Eivor that the game wanted me to play - so in the real world I was female, and

Jedi Fallen Order | Done

Another fun game that I finished a little less than a year ago on 11/30I got this game on sale when an acquaintance from our dog park recommended it.  Star Wars is fine as a franchise, but I don't geek out over space druids (LOL, I am sure that might have triggered some folks).  But, the recent resurgence of content from Disney, with three TV series currently on, and a few animated ones
