Still hanging around this forum here and there. Been playing a lot of Madden 19 lately since the Bears have been really fun to watch so far this season. I popped in to KI recently and did some bounties in Shadow Lab and really enjoyed it. Hadn’t played KI in a while and it’s still a blast.
I’ve been trying to get in to Soul Calibur VI but for some reason, the Libra of Souls mode isn’t really holding my attention. There doesn’t seem to be a ton of story in it and between the load times on XB1, the cost of traveling to the matches and all the relatively meaningless dialog leading up to a lot of these battles, I’m kinda losing interest, which I wouldn’t have thought possible.
Granted, I’m not really doing story missions; just taking care of a lot of missions as they pop up on the screen, but still… If you’re going to go to the trouble of setting up a lot of these fights with some sort of pretense or context, then I wouldn’t mind if it was a bit more compelling. No big deal though.
How are people’s Thanksgiving shaping up? We used to go over to my wife’s parents and they’d have about ten other people over, so it was a nice, big, family get together, but ever since her folks moved away, things have been more low key. My wife and I are just having her brother and his wife over. We were originally going to have her other brother and his fiancé over, but the fiancé’s mom just went in to the hospital and found out she has terminal cancer and likely isn’t leaving the hospital. It’s kind of a heavy time in the family, so I’m hoping a low key get together, some board games, some football on the TV, some drinking, etc will be a nice reprieve.
