So amazed at how good this DLC is, it's a callback to when we actually used to differentiate between DLC and expansion packs. It improves performance, adds a ton of cool new missions, new solider types, new enemies, new weapons and armor, new bosses...I could go on and on. It's amazing and if you ever plan on getting XCom2, this is a must buy for it. Some would say you should play the base game first and then add War of the Chosen but I disagree...just jump full in, it teaches you all the original and new aspects pretty well.

Finally beat Sine Mora on the 360. I hated the timed aspect but overall, I did enjoy it. Beautiful shmup.

So disappointed that it's over. Clocked in just under 20 hrs. Didn't find everything so that's next on the list. Such a great game. Really getting into Battle Chasers now. Can't really put my finger on why I like it so much.

Ok, so i bear Danganrompa V3.

It was good.

Also can say i beat GW2: Path of fire (and Heart of thorns earlier this year).

It was alright. GW2 is a weird MMO because it doesn't keep to established conventions (though it does feel alot like the original GW1 in that design, aside from the combat).
It was a lump of fresh air, but it is also easy to leave the game. It's a two edges sword.

GW1 was better, but i guess this is ok.

I completed 1 play through of Stories. It was alot better than I expected. Not sure how many different endings there are, but I wouldn't mind playing back through it a couple more times.

I have to say I did enjoy EW2 more then the original. While the game wasn't scary at all I did enjoy exploring the town areas finding out about what happened and coming across random events.

The town parts reminded me of Silent Hill with a less chunky battle system and was quite challenging if you wanted to stealth as much as possible. Which was needed on the higher difficulties.

I'm also glad they did away from the forced repeated boss battles that SM likes putting in his games. They got really annoying in EW1.

The one thing the game did lack though was a strong bad guy to you could focus on. Stefano was interesting but he was gone by the half way point and then the priest dude and your wife didn't really have the same pull to me

I did like the ending though as it seems like there won't be an EW3, Seb pretty much got a decent ending, even if they did make a EW3 bringing him back would seem pretty forced now.
