Just started Jedi Fallen Order today.  Having trouble working out the combat.  It feels different from everything else I've ever played, and I'm still trying to adapt to it.

I've picked up Disgaea 5 again, on PC. 
I bought it awhile back, played a few hours, but I started up again.

 

The game is tactical RPG, that is quite literally a one big grind... And you're grinding to get the biggest numbers.

Level cap is 9999, maximum damage somewhere around 3 Trillion.

FTL: faster than light. It's a fun rogue-like game from 2012. It's very difficult though. I've played a lot and only beaten it on EASY twice.

I rarely have time anymore, but when I do, I still keep going back to Hearts of Iron IV, despite the bugs and the horrendous AI... It still the most comprehensive WWII sim I've found or heard of.

@Quibby now that you've had a few more days, any further thoughts on the game?

 

 

I finally finished Witcher 3 and I've been playing Outer Worlds.  It's pretty fun; far more tight in narrative and ordered in scope.  There's not much reward for exploring the world beyond finding ammo or bits and while it's pretty it's not revolutionary graphics-wise.  It has a few new gameplay quirks that are cool like flaws, and I like the dialogue options and skill tree.  I do enjoy that it doesn't make me feel like I'm missing out by not exploring and there aren't a cosmic shit ton of sidequests to explore.

Had a while now to really get into the game.

 

Holy crap, story.  Recent Star Wars games are all multiplayer with a campaign thrown in as almost an afterthought.  Fallen Order is a single-player game through and through, and it's glorious.  Gameplay is what would happen if you threw Dark Souls-style difficulty into an exploration game like the recent Tomb Raider games.  I unfortunately went into the game playing it as if I was playing a Dark Souls game: dodging all of the attacks and hitting when the enemy was recovering from their attack.

 

That doesn't work.  At all.  In the least.

 

Fallen Order is all about blocking and parrying, with extra emphasis on the parrying.  If you keep dodging all the time, you'll take a long time to get anywhere in the best of circumstances.  Worst-case scenario?  You will be squished.  Constantly.  A lot.  Painfully.  I'm playing on the second-lowest difficulty setting, and I occasionally find myself struggling, mostly because I'm occasionally still trying to instinctively play it like a Dark Souls game with dodging instead of parrying.  For a clearer picture of how much of a difference that makes, I made six runs at a boss battle using the dodging method and got squished every time without doing any real damage.  I started trying to 'git gud' at parrying, and it took me two runs with the first run still doing about 75% damage.

 

If you want a challenge similar to a Dark Souls game, but with emphasis on a different mechanic and with laser swords, I strongly recommend this one.  I especially like the exploration aspect of this game.

 

All that being said, I hate how all games seem to include spider enemies.  Fallen Order is no different, and you'll get sick of seeing 'em eventually.
