Games you're playing right now, and my freetime's demise

Other video games, TV shows, movies, general chit-chat...this is an all-purpose off-topic board where you can talk about anything that doesn't have its own dedicated section.

I needed a screenshot of Vince Carter for this week's Friday Five. I figured while I was there, I'd get some other screenshots for the 25th Anniversary of NBA Live retrospective and other future features. Ended up putting this together.

I've really been trying to vary myself from 2K lately... this is what my weekend looked like:

Banjo-Kazooie - love the game and characters, but can't help feel it's overrated? The hub feels cumbersome, and Clanker's Cavern nearly turned me off from the game entirely, though thankfully it picks up after that. Even though Mario 64 pretty much did the same concept and made it great, it feels a bit more aimless in Banjo.

Another Crusade - the demo technically. This is a game heavily inspired by Mario RPG and aims to be a spiritual sequel of sorts (without actually being Mario). I backed the project for $25 to get my name in the credits, though it looks like it might not reach its goal (the game should still be made regardless).

Fall Guys - a free PS+ game that plays like Fortnite meets Mario Party... I'm not joking; worth a try.

Other games that got some play were Hitman 2, Smash Ultimate, Mario Maker 2, Spryo Reignited, Star Fox 64, Paper Mario: TOK, Gears Ultimate and of course a couple matches of 2K... all in a weekend's work my friends. :lol:

I could never get into Banjo-Kazooie. I have similar feelings about Donkey Kong 64, despite how much I love the Donkey Kong Country series on SNES. When I look back at some of those N64 era platformers, I tend to have the same gripes: too much repetition as you play the same levels over and over again to collect all the required plot tokens (stars, golden bananas, jiggies). For me, they don't hold up as well as Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.

My cousin hyped up Fall Guys a lot and I've been enjoying it so far. It's much like the American TV show Wipeout

Clash of Clans and LOL right now. Quite entertaining. I use chrome vpn to protect my privacy while playing online. It helps to bypass all restrictions also and doesn't cost much. Useful tool for every gamer these days.
