Like A Dragon Infinite Wealth (PS5)
Easily my most anticipated release this year, Like A Dragon Infinite Wealth does not disappoint. Back with another adventure with Ichiban & Kiryu also decides to tag along.
It took me a while to get familiar with the turn-based combat after enjoying all the previous action based games since Ichiban's first game. It has a nice quick smackdown feature similar to the Persona "All Out Attack" where you can wipe out lower levelled enemies with a press of the L2 button.
The mini-games are as always great timesinks and I am enjoying Sujimon & Dondoko Island.
A mid-season update has dropped a TMNT (teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) mini-battle pass which unlocks a shredder skin, I have also completed the Solid Snake challenges and unlocked the skin.
Assasins Creed Mirage (PS5)
I enjoyed this shorter experience than the previous games & the focus on stealth combat and tools is my default playstyle.
After Infinite Wealth it will most likely be Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. My aim for this year is to focus first on games released in 2024 that I want to play, if nothing is available then I will go back and look at my backlog.
These are games I already own that I really need to find some time to enjoy.
