I'm a little burnt out on 2D platformers right now. I bought Ori back when I had the OG Xbox One and couldn't really get into it, in spite of the gorgeous art design. I'm afraid I'll feel the same way about Cuphead, though the notorious challenging gameplay is enticing. I'm hoping these things come to Games Pass eventually, so I might just hold off and solely use the Xbox One for Games Pass stuff (although I might buy Red Dead on it if that version runs the best). We shall see.

I popped on PUBG last night and had two hilarious "oh shit" moments. I feel like this happens frequently with this game, but anyways... the first involved me lying prone next to a tree, monitoring a set of buildings I saw a guy run into with my M16 with 4X ACOG scope. Next thing I know is I hear footsteps running at me from behind. The guy literally sprints one foot away from my body and down the hill, lining up for the perfect shots to the back. How he didn't see me was beyond me. I had a good laugh. The second involved an end game with 15 players and the ever decreasing circle landing on an open field with little to no coverage. Thankfully, I had a UAZ and was just driving in circles, taking the random shots--but no damage. I ran over a few unlucky souls running into the circle and it was down to about 6 players. I attempted a sharp turn, only to find my truck had flipped onto its side. I didn't want to jump out and get killed instantly, as I was the only one in a car at the end. I kept switching seats, but one sniper round landed in my face as I switched to the passenger side. I died, I laughed, I jumped right into another game. This game is something special, in spite of how unpolished/non-optimized it may be.

It's hard to aim in PUBG on consoles. Most modern games have aim assists and RNG algorithms that help with aiming. The inaccuracy of dual analog sticks could be seen as a negative. I like it. It helps even the odds when taking fire. It gives you enough time to retaliate, juxtaposed to looting for 20 minutes only to be head-shot from 200 meters away with a sniper rifle. Gun fights are dirty/confusing/loud on the Xbox One and I like it for that. I can't pull myself away from this game.
