Apparently they stopped at a certain point and canceled planned DLC, IIRC.

Was feeling the ye olde' D&D itch over the weekend again.  Dabbled with some more Skyrim and Dragon's Dogma.  Both were running kinda iffy.  Did some research on my mod order and reconfigured their loadout.  Now, both are running at a pretty solid 60fps with all mods functioning properly.  😎  I need to take it easy on the amount of mods I got going, but there's so many!  Must ... add.... more!!  Shit gets addicting.

Which you have to pay for...
Monthly...
Even if I had paid the $13 for it... still would have been more worth it. ;)

Svejk, I bet you'd really like Andromeda if you played it.

I dunno.. ME3 was a bit of a sludge for me.. couldn't finish it. Same with Inquisition... I know they're completely different RPG's, but Bioware just does not seem to make exciting games for the past 5-6 years.

If it becomes a PS+ freebie, sure... I'd give it a try.

My recent pick-ups:

-Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen (PS4): Yes, it finally came last Saturday.  Haven't tried it yet...don't know if I will because the PC version is clearly superior.  Couldn't resist getting a copy new for like $23 though.

-Ys Origin LE (PS4): Another Limited Run Games release that I will never open and hopefully sell for a tidy profit down the line. 

-Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online (PS4): The latest Neptunia release is also the first big change up for the series, which is notorious for low-budget asset-recycling.  This one still seems to do that in some places, but finally uses a new engine (UE4) and has updated models and improved animation.  This is not a typical Neptunia game, which lately has been either the turn-based RPGs or beat-em-up style games.  This one instead is kind of like .HACK was and is a 'fake' MMORPG-- the characters from Neptunia are beta-testing a game and you play as them playing the game.  So meta, lol.  It looks pretty decent in-game and the first intro level reminded me a lot of something out of Zelda BOTW with the color schemes and art style.  My issue with the game right now is that it seems a little too basic (run around the map and hit one button to kill enemies), but hopefully it will open up.  I see abilties listed that I don't have access to yet, which is a good sign, although I guess running around and attacking enemies by doing very little is an MMORPG stape. :P

-Tiny Barbarian DX (Switch): Another awesome Nicalis Switch release!  Comes with some little extra goodies in the box, plus a cool little NES-style instruction booklet like Cave Story has.  So nice!  The game is a fun little 8-bit throwback action-platformer that plays well.  You can even do some Ahnuld-style muscle flexing, lol.

-Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle (Switch): Seems to be straight-garbage.  Looks and plays like a shoddy budget PS2 game from 2000 or something.  Maybe there's something to it, being the fifth game in this series?  I dunno.  It's kind of like a crap-level Virtual On rip-off...so basically it's like a shittier ARMS.
