Good to see they haven't forgotten Ninja Gaiden completely.

Oh my god he's so Ninja Gaiden it almost brings me to tears.

The enemy, I mean. The main character... eh. Fine, I guess.

I just finished Shadow of War. and now, having spent all the hours in it, having basked in the full experience, I can confidently proclaim.... that that game is mediocre.

It's just not as good as Shadow of Mordor was. And Shadow of Mordor itself was an imperfect game, a game bad in a lot of respects, but with a nugget of *pure joyful fun* to it that just couldn't be denied.

Shadow of War is "more polished". it's... *less* of an all-around turd than SoM was. But... the main key element is lost in the noise and unnecessary massiveness of the game. All I could keep thinking as I kept playing it was, "Man. If there was a smaller, tighter version of this game, it'd be so good. ...oh wait. there is. the first one."

So... yeah. All told, wouldn't recommend it. It's *extremely* fun at certain specific stretches of the experience. But it's too large and overall, you can just find better games to play. Like Shadow of Mordor.

Just finished Persona 5. Other than that, Dark Souls 3, all day every day.

Damn I love Underrail.

Breakdown on what's going on
Spoiler: show
1. Adrenaline Shot. Boosts action points.
2. Morphine Shot. Reduces all damage by 50% for 3 turns, but after those 3 turns, you lose half your total health.
3. Telekinetic Proxy. Mimics single target telekinetic skills within the radius.
4. Premeditation. Halves the psi point cost of the next psi skill and reduces the AP cost to zero.
5. Thermodynamic Destabilization. Inflicts a status effect that essentially turns an enemy into a living bomb. When the enemy dies, they explode and inflict fire and physical damage equal to at least 100% of their health at the time the status was inflicted (can go higher depending on how much psi skill your character has).
6. Exothermic Aura. Key part here is becoming immune to fire damage.
7. Telekinetic Punch. Single target attack that deals good damage and has a chance to stun.
8. The TK Proxy mimics the TK Punch, which kills the enemy and sets off the explosion. The fire damage is negated by Exothermic Aura, and the physical damage is cut in half thanks to the morphine shot.

Currently playing Mega Man Super Fighting Robot 3: I'm On a Boat

Pretty much everything I know about this game comes from History Repeating: Blue/Red by the Megas, and AD telling me it's better than Megamens 2, so this is quite an experience.
