Last game you finished

  • I had the last week off so I did 100% on Inside and Contrast. I had beat both of them the week prior but felt the need to finish the achievements on steam.

  • @matt said in Last game you finished:

    @Bigdude1 That's a surprising statement. Not that I don't believe you. So how would you rate it as a game? And how would you rate it as a Metroid game? I'm curious about it. I enjoyed Metroid Prime Hunters more than most other people. I felt it was one of the best feeling FPS games for DS.

    I feel its better than prime hunters, but it isnt a competitive game. there is a lot of cool coop scenarios that really hook you.

    and although some reviewers claim otherwise, it does feel like a metroid prime game, just not one that is focused on exploration and is more objective based. the combat is virtually identical.

    also its use of the gyro for aiming is really good. i think the only thing that would prevent me from recommending it now is that i dont know how active the online is currently. without online the game would be really difficult because all of the missions are built around coop.

  • @Bigdude1 And would be willing to play through it again with fellow Easy Allies? I'm going to get the game at the end of next week, and I'm hoping to find coop partners! I know @Hero-of-Lime also has it, so we'd need only one more to make our own Easy Federation!

  • @Axel sure! pm me later and ill give you my friend code

  • I finally finished a game!

    Granted that game was Journey, so it wasn't much of an accomplishment.

    It was great, and I feel bad that I waited so long to try it. My only complaint being that I wanted way more of it, but I guess that's a compliment more then anything.

  • Finished Shovel Knight. I thought it was super fun and just started the new game plus and Plague of Shadows

  • Oddly enough, Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time. I found my copy that I got 9 years ago while looking for a different game, and decided to actually complete the thing this time around. Those games are so jolly.

  • Just finished up The Witcher 2.. makes me want to go restart 3!

  • Finished Transistor. I wonder how I managed to keep it in my backlog for so long. I absolutely enjoyed every minute of it (and just ruined myself by buying the official soundtrack vinyl). Not sure about how I feel about Supergiant's next game Pyre for now (based on the 20 minutes gameplay online), but I definitely keep an eye on it.

    Also played Virginia. Still confused and full of mixed feelings about it.

  • @Axel Yeah, we can try it at some point!

  • Over the last 1-2 weeks I have beaten Bioshock 1 & 2 again and I also finished Phoenix Wright: SoJ and Asura's Wrath for the first time.

  • Finished RE: Revelations again this morning. This time on PS3, I had only ever played it on the 3DS prior to that run.

  • Finished Bloodborne! What a fantastic game! I'm starting up a NG+ right now haha

    Think I might also go back and give Dark Souls another try until 3 comes down in price a bit

  • Yestarday I beat for the second time The Last of Us, great game, there is no doubt about it. And I understood better Joel's intention this time. I also have to beat two DLCs from New Vegas: Dead Money and Lonesome Road. I did beat them when they came out but I barely remember the latter. And once I am done with these two DLCs, I am done with the main game. So Fallout: New Vegas will be my next game to be beaten.
    @Faaip Bloodborne, what a game aswell ! The setting and global mood are just outstanding, and since this a Souls game (design and gameplay wise), it makes it a must-play for everyone !

  • @Faaip Bloodborne is really an amazing game! I have never finished it, but that's my own lack of skill. It just speaks to the quality of that game though that I love it as much as I do, despite never finishing it.

  • @Billy Dude! That's my favorite Mario & Luigi game. When I was young I remember picking that up at Gamestop with my parents, going home, and, Huber style, shutting the drapes and turning off the lights to play it. I love the quasi-horror feels at the beginning of that game. How did you feel about the shroob saucers and twist at the end?

  • Finished the game Virginia. It was weird :/

  • @Browarr I beat the Last of Us for the first time fairly recently. I loved the story/writing/acting, but I was kind of annoyed with the game design. I thought they telegraphed the combat situations way too much, and that in general they were a little too frequent. I think the game would've been better (and much ballsier) if they refrained from throwing in so many combat encounters, and instead focused more on just walking around and exploring/interacting with the world (my favorite parts of the game), punctuated occasionally by the brutal violence. Think about how insane entire last act of the game would be if you had only fought humans a few times, or when you came across the infected they were rarely in groups larger than 3 or 4. That swarm near the end would've been bonkers, and the winter section would stand out for being even more crushingly brutal than it already is. I think those kinds of moments would stand out much more, while allowing the more character/world driven interactions more space to breathe. I don't blame ND for going the route that they did, nor do I even dislike the game for the way that it plays, but I do feel like it was a missed opportunity to do something incredible and unprecedented.

  • @naltmank You're right. I had a blast with the game but I really cannot deny the fact that there were moments in that game where I just wanted to have more open sequences and wander around. One thing I really love about TLOU (and video games in general) are the lore tidbits left through notes and such (I don't know if you can remember this but there is a man who was living on a boat while the pandemic spread and there is a note explaining his state of mind and I really love when you have these moments and just imagine how he could have lived on his boat) and, as you said, there are too much combats in this game but I guess this was intentional since TLOU is a game about survivalism, grey morale and human relations. I guess Naughty Dog nailed it since there are triple A developers and they can't lose too much money on their products, and in this case, the good way to make sure everyone is on board is by putting action (too much as you said and I felt during my both playthrough). The game is as well linear which make exploration rough.
    But still, you got several moments of peace in the game (think of the beginning of Fall, the first part of Bill's City section) but I agree there are too short. My only redemption is Day's Gone on PS4. From what I have heard (correct me if I am wrong), Day's Gone will feature survivalism/crafting in a open world but it will be focused on a plot. This is current trend (open world + plot) so I don't have to complain about it :)

  • @Browarr If that's true then my hype for that game just shot through the roof! Yeah, those were my favorite moments in the game. Just learning about other characters and their lives. That one sequence where you learn about the survivors in the sewers solely through environmental and contextual clues is absolutely masterful. Also, the giraffe scene made me tear up.
