Next was Fallout 4 (no link because duh, it's Fallout 4). I really got into this, clocking over 140 hours which would be a record if it wasn't for Minecraft or, God help me, WoW. Maybe it was the pathos of the Sole Survivor's situation; I played a woman (as always), and a mother looking for her lost son is a potent story. The big reveal was disconcerting -- and not helped by a bug in the questline that forced me to use a cheat for progress -- and I avoided resolving the main story until I ran out of side-missions. But I enjoyed those missions, playing a ninja-type as I often do, maxing-out stealth and sneak-attacking enemies with plasma sniper rifles ... I also loved Piper, my favorite companion, who sadly rebuffed my advances (probably just as well).
Most recently I turned to Just Cause 3, a generous BD gift from wellgull and moonlightalice. Apparently the game was plagued with bugs, and got lousy reviews on Steam because of them, but when I started last week it was all patched up and I had no problems. The game is not a deep experience. You play Rico Rodriguez, Mediterranean Spider-Man with a bazooka, who returns home to "liberate" Medici (looks like Malta) by blowing much of it up. In sum: Soldiers over there, Kill They Ass. The island is extremely pretty, the game-play is repetitive but frenetic and fun. An enjoyable way to spend a couple afternoons.
