Stray game street

I have a small web post and a SCOTUS post on deck, but for now, games.
Remnant II

Mine and J's first major Remnant II dungeon was the Beatic Palace. We were admiring the Bloodborne aesthetic when we ran into a bit of a confusing puzzle and/or dead end. After some internet searching it occurred to us that we'd come upon a not-uncommon glitch where a critical NPC simply does not spawn. And you can't leave dungeons. You just start over. The whole campaign.

Since we'd only just begun, ragequitting didn't seem entirely called for. Happily, Remnant has been fun and largely glitch-free ever since. Probably the most notable thing has been that the boss battles are sometimes traditional (big guy, lots of hp, sequences) and sometimes a neat sequence like a train of death or mad rush through a Matrixy husk library with giant mechanical tentacles.
Stray

Stray has remained the scenic and tight (gameplay-wise) experience it started as. Dani still loves playing it.

Gunfire Reborn

Gunfire Reborn Anxi Desert

Me and J got a fun session in with Little J. Also the devs added an ascension mode with a bunch of cool new ways to spend spirit thingies and create synergistic builds.
Slay the Spire

Speaking of Ascension, while I've had some nights where my brain was too fried for BG3 or productive things, I've worked on getting Ironclad, Defect, and Watcher up to Ascension 10.

The underworld

Is Stray good game for a two year old to copilot? Also Payday 3, Baldur's Gate 3, and Fallout 76.
