More than halfway through myself and I quite disagree with your assessment. She's always being hunted.  Hell, 90% of the time Trinity agents are talking among each other about how they have to kill her.  She's on the defensive and her only way out is working her way through a mess of bodies.  No different from the other games in the series and I really don't get how covering her with mud makes her a "murdering sociopath".

Hey Matt

I am sure you are past the bit about Jonah by now but she emerges as fire silhouetted angel of shotguns at one point.  I played most the encounters using the stealth predator skills so I was hatchet killing a dozen men one at a time until the ground was littered with corpses. Lara never addresses that over trilogy she has gone from a desperate overwhelmed teenager to a cold-blooded killer, and I would like to have seen that explored. I am very curious what you think of the ending!

Spider-man is on deck for me this weekend (hopefully, if I get my school assignments done). My step-kid has been playing odyssey for 100 hours thus far with no end in sight.  A friend of mine is a voice actor in the game so I will be collecting clips of all the times I kill his characters for him LOL

I continue in my tradition from the first RED DEAD
REDEMPTION of pushing the wrong button when trying to
talk to someone and ending up shooting them instead.
All that money wasted on paying off bounties. Good
times!

I was punching my horse in the ribs for a bit at the
start.

Even nearing half way through I still get a little off
on the controls.

Best line in the game so far "I take shits with more
spine than you!"

Robin, I will say that my least favorite part of SHADOW is when Laura has to race from one point to another as things crumble around her.  They happen at key changes in the story (essentially one local to another) but they are frustrating in their utter lack of direction, gleaned only by replaying the path several times over.  Can't count the number of times I asked (yelled) "WHERE THE FUCK DO I GO?" after being impaled by a spear or made into Swiss cheese by gunfire.

Have you started Kiwami 2 yet Matt? Went to bed too late last night but I'm blaming my partner as she kept insisting on just a bit more story.

I haven't, no.  Still working my way through SHADOW OF THE TOMB RAIDER. So many great games out right now that it's hard to choose what's next!

Games are insanely long now, it's just mad trying to get through all you want play. Definitely a good thing!

Completed Spider-Man last night. A lot of fun, and clearly set up for future
opportunities. There ARE some things that Spider-man fans won't be happy
with...but I think it overall holds true to the character (even stuff I didn't like
was very much in character). Similar to Arkham games in that it isn't button-
mashing, and there's some coordination to battles. Amazingly slick look to the
game, and ridiculously fluid movements.

Started Red Redemption 2... What a beauty of a game. I
wish I could already be in a free mode to just wander
around in those beautiful scenery.Also, if they were
doing an Indiana Jones with that quality, I would buy it
in a heart bit !...

And that's my post 5050 !

Yup, I was not a fan of those either and it seems like Tomb Raider and Uncharted are merging mechanically. The "run from things" thing goes all the way back to Crash Bandicoot and has never been fun.

Finished SHADOW OF THE TOMB RAIDER.  Fun game.  Wish it was more open world than it actually ended up being, but all in all a worthy addition to the franchise.  There could have been more tombs to puzzle out and solve as those are highlights to me, however this installment has the most of the trilogy so I'm satisfied.  

Started SPIDER-MAN.  Amazing opening!  Gonna take me a minute to learn the mechanics and I'll definitely need to tap into my Arkham muscle memory for the fights.  That said, I've spent all of ten minutes swinging around NYC and it's stunning.  Looking forward to having this week off work so I can really take a deep dive.

I need to get back to SPIDER-MAN to play the Black Cat DLC, but RDR2 has been taking up all my video game time with hunting and robbing people.
