I just got a Switch from Santa. Someone please tell me what games to get. I already purchased Zelda: BOTW.

I play JRPGs and the switch has a ton of them! I am not sure which genres ya like to suggest games.

Been playing Mario Kart and Kong on the Switch. What a great console. Bought Hades but I’m already out of space so had to order a memory card so I can download it.

Mario Odyssey and Zelda are up next I think.

Spiderman Remastered is still fucked up on PS5. It just hard froze my PS5 in the first hour of gameplay. Ugh.

Guess I'll start with Miles Morales instead. I understand it is a standalone game (i.e, not a true sequel) ?

It's essentially an expansion DLC for the first game. It's not a direct sequel in that it doesn't continue the primary story from the first game that was teased at the end and I assume will be the plot of Spider-Man 2. It's a spin-off. Miles Morales exists in the same city as the first game where we saw how he got his powers, although it's prettier and winter now. Peter Parker from the first game exists and makes appearances in the game. But it's centered around Miles and is his story, not Parker's. Aside from Rhino (who is in the game's intro) and a brief appearance from one other prominent standard Spidey villain, this one is entirely Miles Morales based. It also references the first game's story quite a bit, so it'd definitely be better to play that one first.

Note: I finished the story but haven't done all the side stuff yet so it's possible other standard Spidey villains appear.

Well fuck.

Guess I'll start Ghost of Tsushima, then.

Another great game.

But yeah, I would 100% recommend playing the first Spider-Man before Miles Morales. You literally see how Miles gets his powers in the first game. He's a secondary character in that one and then the main character in his self-titled game.

Miles just froze mine in the middle of gameplay. I restarted and then when I put in 2k the PS5 auto uninstalled it and I lost data?

Apparently it’s common software problem but it needs a patch.

Not playing much right now but Cyberpunk. Good game but I’m having a hard time really locking into it. Definitely disappointing in that sense but knew it wasn’t going to live up to the expectations.

Not much coming out for a while it seems so just enjoying not having any backlog. Also taking another stab at Divinity Original Sin 2. Bounced off it back in 2017 but I’m really digging it this time around now that I know what I’m doing.

Grabbed Dead by Daylight on PS5. Very fun change of pace when needing a break from Demon Souls. Chase downs feel intense.

Decided to start Uncharted 4.

REALLY good so far. Feels like I'm playing a movie.

Yup. First game I played on my PS4 when I bought it back in 2017. Always loved that series.

Could have done with less shooting- it just doesn’t fit the game’s style. But overall loved it. Wait till the end. It’s the PERFECT send off for the series if you’re a long time fan.
