    Sea of Thieves arena mode is so much fun with a coordinated team and is just a train wreck with randoms.

    Very fun once you get the hang of it. Super competitive.

    The tall tales are also great. Very challenging. Especially if you lose items being attacked and fail one you’re hours into lol

    We got chased by a sloop who had us harpooned while we had the shroud breaker on board. I would have been pissed if they sunk us. Haven't done the next mission yet but the puzzles were really good. I tried to do them without a guide and it took a few hours.

    Yea if you don’t look up the answers it can take a while to figure out what to do. Shit after #2, you don’t even really know where to go to even start the next ones.

    #6 has such severe consequences. The item you need to have is a specific gunpowder keg and you just can’t take a hit of damage on it for hours or you start over. You need a coordinated team.

    These new modes kinda make this game incredibly fun.

    TLDR: with this update, Sea of Thieves went from a 4/10 to a 8/10 for me.

    Longer rundown:
    So as someone who didn’t really play much SoT when it came out— maybe an hour or two? I just didn’t think there was much to do and that appeared to be right— I wanted to again say how awesome the two new modes are.

    Arena is pure sweat and intense if you want to win. I think they will expand this mode with multiple size queues, etc. It’s just really good move by them. It’s very fun, very challenging, and you are basically maniacally yelling with your friends for 20 minutes. In a good way.

    There are 9 Tall Tales and they take at least an hour but one took about 4 to do (if you don’t look up the answers). They can take that long for a variety of reasons— if you get rolled up on by other players or skeleton ships, if you damage or lose a piece, of a puzzle or map is really hard, or a boss fight is near impossible (fuck u Briggsy). You can also go back and do them again and they do change a bit which is cool. I beat the final one last night and it was insanely fun. Can’t recommend this enough if you like to work together to solve things with a team.

    One of my favorite experiences with friends on box all time. It has just what I want from a co-op type thing. I find this better than any looter shooter I’ve done like destiny or borderlands tbh. I assume they will release similar long form quests routinely? Would be awesome seasonally, but that’s probably overly hopeful.

    My biggest complaint is still the game is weak outside of these two things and that the person on person fighting is very.. wonky. The ship on ship is dope.

    Game Pass is really killing it this past month. Just Cause 4, Surviving Mars got put in yesterday. I tried playing Monster Hunter: World for a little bit, seems a little bit daunting for noobs.

    Seems like a hard game to play solo.

    Much better with a friend. I also thought it was hard to learn, but it was really fun once you somewhat know what you’re doing.

    Monster hunter world is a great game. I had never played a monster hunter game before and I was able to pick up on how to play pretty quickly.

    Thanks to user Taco Sa1ad for getting me addicted to World of Warships. It's the best kind of grind.

    Yea I gave it a lot of shit at first and Gin Buckets for grinding it (hey friend), but World of Warships is super fun.

    Have to give it a good chance to grind past the first ships. It doesn’t really take off until you have torpedos and other ships for new play styles. I strongly suggest playing japan and British first as their number 2 ships are way way more fun than US.

    I spent time with the U.S in the beginning; think I'll switch to Japan for a bit.

    That feeling when your torpedo salvo hits home though.

    :blessed:

    Once you get the hang of torpedoes the game becomes much more fun. At first I couldn’t hit them at all and I actually said I’m just gonna get ships with tons of guns and not use torpedoes... now I load up as Admiral Tanaka on a lovely IJN DD and don’t even fire my guns the entire game
