  • Fable Anniversary 7/10 - Play Fable 2 instead but definitely better than 3. The Lost Chapters content is pretty good and substantial with a good final boss.

    1979 Revolution: Back Friday 8/10 (6/10 objective) - Nominated for Games for Impact at Game Awards. Plays like a great telltale episode both in gameplay and length. Heavy and real subject matter that worked for me and the intended emotions were reached but game graphics and glitches will hurt immersion. Just laugh at the engine and glitches but surrender to the story and message.

  • After significant time away from it, I went back and completed Rogue Legacy. I had gotten burned out while throwing myself against the optional remixed bosses, so it felt good to return and exact revenge. A great game which I highly recommend.

  • Just finished Life Is Strange.

    Wow, I can definitely see why it made the Top 100, and probably would have gotten a few more points from me if I'd played it earlier.

    I'm very impressed by how well the story wrapped up and how every single piece of the puzzle fits, not to mention all the cool/surprising/funny/sad moments along the way. That's a journey I won't be forgetting for a long, long while, and some of its themes (loss, guilt) resonated particularly well with me.

    Someone close to me is dealing with loss and I had a lot of trouble finding the right words to comfort her at times, but I feel like playing through this game gave me some new wisdom and understanding. Which in turn should allow me to help her better.

    One of my colleagues, who's also a brilliant writer, recently explained that every story - be it from a game, movie or book - that we experience enriches us by giving us new ways to look at life, new points of view. Basically new life experience.

    Life Is Strange gave me so much XP I think I actually leveled up! :)

    This makes me chuckle, but I completely empathize. It's a wonderful thing when games transcend mere entertainment and become something greater.

  • Steins Gate

    I bought this ages ago in a sale and after completing some other Vita games and constantly being nudged by @Exist-2-Inspire I finally gave it a go.

    To start this off, I'm not really into VNs. The closest thing I've gotten to them is the Zero Escape series and Danganronpa which I both love.

    Anyway this one took me some time to complete and my initial impressions of the game were pretty damn negative. I think it spends an insane amount of time on completely pointless conversation that does nothing more than pad out a game that is already very long. It doesn't really go anywhere until about the 4th or 5th chapter which equates to about 10 hours of gameplay.

    On top of that the main character is so unlikeable in these early parts too. He just has this completely stupid "Mad scientest" persona that makes you want to skip his dialogue everytime it happens.

    But I did say I'd complete the game and that I did. Fortunately the story definitely does pick up and it does actually end quite nicely. There were times that I was engrossed in it and wondering what might happen next but overall I did find the story to be decent. I'm trying not to nitpick on it too much as I feel if I did, I might rip the whole thing open with plot holes and characters doing things that really make no sense for the character.

    The game has also reminded me how much I hate multiple endings. The majority of which are pretty awful and just a "pick your girlfriend" simulator which also really makes no sense as you haven't built up this relationship at all in the majority of cases. I won't even go into the pervy stuff in the game.

    So ya, I guess I'm coming across pretty negative on this one but the reviews for it are incredibly good and talk about how it's a fantastic timetravel story. For me, I think it's safe to say that VNs aren't really my thing. I'm glad I gave it a chance (platinumed it) and I enjoyed parts of it for sure but I couldn't recommend this game unless you're into these type of games.

  • The Last Guardian. Holy shit. Do recommend.

  • just finished final fantasy 15. 33 hours was my playtime

    Spoilerthe final chapter was so final fantasy i was just giggling the whole time and the villain is good if not a little underdeveloped its not till the end do you figure out what his motivations were.
    the story as a whole however was on the weaker end until chapter 12 or so and that dungeon in chapter 13 can suck a big one. im gonna go back and do some post game stuff.
    also wanted some characters to have a more complete arc but whatever.

    8/10 great game just not as great as it could have been. however the ending leaves some room open to expand this world if they please.

  • Can you spoiler tag your post please @FF7Cloud not even played the game yet, and don't want the unmarked spoilers to ruin the games ending for me.

  • @DisturbedSwan sure how do i

  • Thanks @FF7Cloud

    I've fallen behind on the Batman Telltale series so I'm playing catch up at the moment so I know I am behind on the times with saying this but Telltale's take on Batman is really, really, really interesting. Episode 3 is probably my favourite one so far because of the avenues it goes down and the areas of Batman/Bruce Wayne's character is focuses in on. So while one of the key plot points of the episode is a bit stupid when you look at it with any amount of scrutiny on the whole it is still an entertaining ride. There is also a cool little reveal at the end that I wasn't expecting that shows how willing Telltale are to push things in different directions from the norm for their version of Batman.

    I'll hopefully be playing through Episode 4 sooner rather than later.

    As for Doom.....

    I enjoyed my time with the game to a point but it does have a lot of problems that many reviews seem to have overlooked or at least have not acknowledged. The shooting gameplay is solid and the level design's old school approach to hiding things in every nook and cranny is much appreciated. But it got very repetitive in the latter half of the game. To the point where I looked up online how much I had left in the campaign, lowered the difficulty and breezed through to reach the credits. It is a good game but a half baked one.

    Difficulty is ramped up by just throwing more of the same enemies at you or introducing bigger bullet sponges. Also the boss battles are well.....90s style video game boss battles and not in the good way. There is no real progression to the level design either. Each level just rinse and repeats the formula of: corridor-bit --> arena-bit --> platformy-bit with varying amounts of monsters.

    Still like I said the shooting is solid. In the heat of the moment when all hell has broken loose (see what I did there!), the soundtrack is pounding away and you are zooming around an arena swapping weapons and changing your tactics on the fly as the situation shifts. It is brilliant. You feel epic and cool in those moments. It is just a shame that it is a feeling that has diminishing returns the longer you play the game.

  • Aaaand I finished INSIDE.

    I don't think I've ever said "What the f***?!" as many times as I did during the last 15 minutes of this game. Wow. I've also rarely been as scared by a videogame enemy as I was by those evil mermaid things! They made me shout. So loud. My poor neighbours.

    I still don't know how to process the ending and the "story". But overall the game is amazing, top-notch gameplay, very inventive puzzles. There were so many times when I was just about to give up and thought "Wait a minute, what if I do that?..." and lo and behold, problem solved. This game is excellent at making you feel clever.

    I also managed to find all the secrets, the way you're given hints via the Trophies names and descriptions is really cool, it was just enough to help me get the last 2-3 I'd missed on my playthrough.

    Don't think I'd consider it GOTY, despite everything it feels too small-scale to deserve that award, but it's definitely in my 2016 Top 5, and easily Indie GOTY.

    I'm very glad I played this, after Life Is Strange, I feel like I'm on a good-taste streak!

  • @Axel said in Last game you finished:

    I'm very glad I played this, after Life Is Strange, I feel like I'm on a good-taste streak!

    Yessssss, embrace your hatred good taste.

    And on Inside, I would recommend literally not thinking about it too hard. I think of the game as a journey or descent because there doesn't seem to be any sort of narrative that runs through the entire game except some excellent plotting and puzzle threads to follow.

  • Steamworld Dig 6/10 - Not enough gameplay variation to justify it's length. It's a digging game, a good one but still just that. Quick advice would be to priorize going down and completion over collecting a lot of materials.

    Runner 2 Future Legend... 7/10 - A replay that wasn't worth it until the final world which was great. Tight runner gameplay but the fluff hasn't aged well. The world, characters, story, bosses and structure still need that extra oumf but runner 3 i have no doubt will kill it.

  • For me it was Dragonball Fusions and Pokemon Moon as I just got a new 3ds on black friday for $99. Looking forward to P5 and continuing raiding in WoW Legion

  • 16/12/2016 - Watch Dogs 2 (PC) - 6/10

  • 2 big ones this time. Two kickstarter successes. With a 3.2 million dollar budget difference.

    Broken Age 8/10 (7 if objective) - I watched the documentary on the making of this game beforehand and i would unfortunately say that the doc has more inherent value than the game. Story is what most matters in this genre but know that graphics, pacing and puzzles are up to snuff. Plot is where it falters a bit, it's never as funny as it hopes it is and a lot of the more interesting aspects of the world are left unexplored. Ending got me but overall the documentary is must see for all gamers but the game is only for those who want to apply.

    That Dragon, Cancer 6/10 - This one hurts cause i respect it a lot. The graphics and gameplay variations are pretty impressive given the scope. But in the end i never cried... I watched Pete's Dragon and Train to Busan today and i was bawling. Even Broken Age got me but a game about a dying child didn't, hell i felt 3x more watching his speech at the game awards. Gotta respect it thought.

  • I have not only finished but platinum'd Valkyrie Drive Bhikkhuni on PS Vita.
    I enjoyed it quite a lot, it's like a lesbian Senran Kagura (no not all SK girls are lesbians). It's a nice button mashing hack & slay with Takaki's typical lewdness mixed with visual novel, lots of completely JP voiced VN cutscenes really.
    The characters are nice but not as likable as the SK girls.
    What SK doesn't has are the boss fights against big robots which have several attack points you can destroy, I always enjoyed those the most.
