What Are You Playing Right Now?
Finished Far Cry 5 campaign. Really enjoyed the game. Much better than the last one.

I started Rise of the Tomb Raider yesterday on Xbox One. The games are so very Uncharted now, with Lara having Drake's same luck when it comes to everything collapsing, exploding or being struck by lightning right as she's interacting with it, but seeing as Uncharted started out by evolving the Tomb Raider concept that's pretty understandable. I only really played one level (the tomb of the Prophet) but I liked it. It was almost all exploration and navigation though, almost no dude-killing, and I doubt the game will stay like that. I remember the previous game leaned heavily on big gunfights at the expense of the platforming.
Currently Playing: Shadow of War (PC) | Nathan Drake Collection [Uncharted 3] (PS4) Breath of the Wild (Switch) ReCore (XBOne)

Other than that it's mostly been The Division. Up to World Tier 4 now.

I find it mad that they ran out of digital copies of a game they own. I'd expect them to run out of a physical copy (even that's a stretch on release week) but digital, how does that happen? Genuinely wondering?!

It's mostly my fault. Publishers like Sony only generate so many keys for digital review copy and I didn't think to ask our Managing Editor, Chris, to put in a request until about 10 days before launch. By that point they'd already exhausted all their keys and generating more is more expensive than you might think, so they just hooked us up with a physical copy, and mailing takes time.

I should have it by this afternoon and will be posting impressions later tonight.

The no-dude killing doesn't last long ! Great game though. I need to go back and finish it.

I finished the campaign for Far Cry 5 last night and really enjoyed it. Started up The Surge when I was done and got my arse whooped. It was late and I couldn't take the defeat, so quit and called it a night.

Yeah the dude killing starts pretty early on and goes full throttle until the end. You should definitely finish up that game, because while I found the climax to drag on a bit too long, the last third of that game is overall freaking wonderful and should be enjoyed by everybody.
