Watched final fantasy 7 remake walkthroughs to check on its progress. The graphics look good. Gameplay looks good. Not certain whether the combat system will get stale and repetitive. They adopted the smash thousands of boxes and crates to acquire items model which I find annoying. The script and flow of it look choppy and rushed. Maybe they'll polish it before final release but I'm thinking it might disappoint people.
I played through the hour or so demo, it's good but not perfect. The main issue is the pacing. There's a weird and strange feeling to how the cutscenes move from story to gameplay. Cloud makes this weird, unnatural transition from talking/being in a scene to allowing the player to control him again. It's jarring and was very odd, given Square is pretty good at that stuff usually.

Animal Crossing in 4 days, technically 3 days as it unlocks at 9pm here the day before on the west coast. I'm super excited, it's been 7 years since the last one and that was on the 3DS, this is the first console version in a very, very long time.

Takes me almost 6 hours to do an SL1 (no leveling up, level 1 only) run in Dark Souls 3, that's about as fast as I can do it. I make it to Pontiff without dying at all, so about 65% of the way through the game. But once I hit Pontiff between him and Aldrich, It puts an extra hour on my run. Both easy bosses if you level up but at base level HP they can just wreck you fast. Pontiff's hit string is just too long and Aldrich is an RNG bitch. These people that can do it in like 2.5 hours or whatever, no idea how they manage it.

Now I am just playing Smash off and on and waiting for Animal Crossing.

I'd recommend checking out Legends of Runeterra, created by Riot Games, so you know it's quality. I always wanted to get into Hearthstone, but the fact that you have to put in tons of hours in order to get a decent deck if you don't spend money on it turned me off, so this one got my attention pretty quick.

I haven't played it for a while, but should probably get back into it. Lots of fun, and trying to get the deck you want is far from the grind it is in Hearthstone. Even if you just play a couple games per day usually is enough to gain a relatively good amount of experience from daily quests etc.

Keeps a fair balance as well imo - you don't have to grind 24/7 (there's a limited amount of experience you can get from wins per day), and there's also a limit on how much you can buy when it comes to card packs etc.
By gaining experience, you earn different rarity wildcards (you can convert wildcards to actual play cards of your choice) and also shards (you can use shards to buy cards or play a random draft mode, in which the more you win, the more shit you can get).

Another cool thing about it, which I think wasn't in Hearthstone, playing with friends isn't completely useless - you still gain the same amount of experience by playing with friends as if you would a random game.
Ill give it shot... looks like a may have a bit of free time coming up :S

Have you tried Gwent?

Marvel's Spiderman for PS4 is looking good for a relatively new game only a few year's old.
Spiderman is a solid game. I had a lot of fun playing it. I actually believe the story in this game beats out the last four Spiderman movies. The only minor complaints I have is that it does get a bit repetitive and the sheath sections with Mary Jane and Miles Morales was painful to go through. Why web sling across New York when you can sneak around as Mary Jane?
