I only log journal dates when finishing/retiring a game. I've tried to create a comprehensive history of everything I've ever finished, so all dates from before 2020 are either ballpark guesses or are based on console/achievement/trophy data.

All reviews pre-June 2022 were migrated over from a different game tracking site.

This review contains spoilers

I took some notes while playing Gears 5 about 6 weeks ago and then forgot to make an actual review. Whoops! So uhhh here are my notes!

- You can keep your turret weapons when you go through doors now! And they added heavy ammo crates! Gears 5 has broken the cycle of anti-heavy weapon prejudice, and I will be heavily biased for this change alone

- Musical fight was great

- I've been marathoning the whole series with my wife, and riding the big drill platform through the mines was the first time this series tested our relationship

- The little Niles robot scuttling away in stage 2-5 made me laugh out loud, it was so goofy compared to the rest of the scene

- The Matriarch fight sucks big ones. It is so easy to get one-shotted, and we got so close so many times, we finally broke down and lowered the difficulty

- Big exploration levels good. More of this in Gears 6, please and thank you

- JD boooooo, least favorite protagonist

- I still miss the Booshka

- STOP TRYING TO HUMANIZE FAHZ, I WILL CONTINUE TO HATE HIM NO MATTER WHAT

- It's a really effective death choice at the end, because you wish it was Fahz, JD probably deserves it more, Del is rad, JD had just started apologizing, and you don't want to put Marcus through his son dying after everything else he's lost, and the fact that you chose what happened makes it more agonizing

- Oh and Jinn still sucks

Absolutely worth picking up so you can make Eri a Matriarch. She quickly became the MVP of my party! Wound up keeping Adachi as the Devil Rocker too, but wouldn't say that's a must-use.

A surprisingly competent and fluid (in both animation and framerate) handheld port of Rampage 2. If I'd had this in 6th grade, I would have played it to death. As an adult with countless other options, it's not much more than a novelty.
