[Official] What are you playing?



  • Yakuza 0
    Well once done with the side stories the main story goes by rather fast, chapter 10 after the battle.



  • After a long hiatus, back to Yakuza 0 for a little while last night. I demolished Club Mars on my second attempt, and got 300 million Yen for this! WHAT?? Never had so much cash, I bought a lot of abilities, and then went on to secure partnership with all of the businesses in the Jupiter area, and am about ready to challenge them.

    It's a fun touch that all the clubs are named after Sailor Moon characters and the star girl of each club is wearing the corresponding color: red for Club Mars, green for Jupiter, and so on.

    I really hope I manage to power through the rest of the game in the next two weeks to make room for Zelda, Torment and Horizon, but who am I kidding :(



  • I got Danganronpa Ultra Despair Girls on hold, and I started the first Yakuza but left it on hold as well to play RE7. But since that's done, I guess Yakuza it is. My "on hold" list is almost as long as my backlog.



  • I've progressed pretty far in Mirror's Edge Catalyst and I'm assuming I'm nearing the end. I have been having a blast just running around that city. I don't think it will hold my attention for the remaining week and a half until Zelda comes out so I'll probably have to put some serious time into Titan Souls, which I have only played a couple bosses in but it pretty fun and charming so far.



  • Yakuza 0
    Chapter 11 now and on another side thing that I will spend sometime with to complete, though most probably not as much as Cabaret Club Czar.
    Not the biggest fan though that the characters are semi randomized.



  • Yakuza 0
    Chapter 10, beat Club Jupiter, beat the Leisure King. Trying to catch up with @Musou-Tensei!

    As much as I love this game I'm probably going to focus on going through the main story now, it's almost too big for its own good!


  • Banned

    I just replayed Mass Effect 2 and did the suicide mission. Now I just have to go through Arrival.

    Not entirely sure if I wanna play Fetch Quest 3 though.



  • Yakuza 0
    Only Bed of Styx but I'm now at a point with Rank B, where the next rank up requires me to win over 200 million and the best Win to Time ratio is the one where the floor opens up, which gives me around 7 million in a minute, that's still almost 30 fights, IF I win every single one, I'm not sure if i wnt to do that as it doesn't seem to be required for completion?
    I havn't tried Endless Rout yet though which I just unlocked, maybe I get more money from there?



  • just bought ys origins on ps4 waiting for it to download, the theme that came with the game is jolly as hell.



  • For Honor

    I got it for free at work, so I'm playing through the campaign during lunch breaks. It plays so well, duels never cease to be fun, but it's easy to tell that the singleplayer campaign was tacked on, and is nothing more than a long tutorial introducing you to each character class. A bunch of scenarios stringed together by simple cutscenes. It's still fun, purely because of the gameplay, but I doubt it will leave a big impression when all is said and done. Might tempt me to dive into multiplayer though!



  • FFXV: Just did the new timed hunt his one was to kill 100 Cactuars and it can go to hell.

    Y's Origins: cool art direction and music ive only played Y's 1 and 2. just a warning its not a good port lots of weird graphical glitches



  • Yakuza 0
    Decided to not further pursue the Bed of Styx ranking for now after realizing that Endless Rout is not worth it, got the trophy for 30 fights in it though. Also got the trophy for 10 wins in the LCC. Made quite the story progress and I'm now at the beginning of chapter 15.



  • I caved yesterday. I told myself aside from Persona 5, I wouldn't purchase any full price games this year but when I woke up yesterday, I knew what I needed in my life... Yakuza 0.

    This is my first foray into this series and great beef bowls, I'm loving it so far. The main thing I'm digging right now is the pacing - so far there has been a perfect balance of player interaction and story. The pace of the tone has been excellent as well - real heavy opening scene, let's sing some karaoke right after. The tension between some of these characters is absolutely overwhelming and I can't praise the acting enough. I'm also not one to revel in graphics normally, but this thing is a beauty.

    If I had complaints to give, I'd say the world relies real heavily on invisible walls which can be a little jarring at times. I'm playing on Hard and didn't stock up on healing items for the first boss, so that one took me several agonizing tries to defeat but... it did give me more time to practice combat.

    I also picked up a real cheap PC recently so I decided to hop into Pokemon TCG Online. Their progression system feels real similar to Hearthstone to me in how additional packs and decks (or classes in HS) are dished out and I honestly hate the art style - but ugh, I've had some great matches so far. Maybe I haven't played enough matches online yet to experience it, but the amount of decks built around a meta feels non-existent in comparison to Hearthstone.



  • Yakuza 0
    Played through chapter 15 and am now in the middle of chapter 16.



  • Finally opened up Nioh and finished the tutorial level and first boss. It's amazing how familiar it feels even though I did not play the betas. I guess Souls has prepared me somewhat. Just that small snippet seems wonderful (complimented by a slick frame rate), so I'm looking forward to playing more once I finish up Xenoblade Chronicles, which should be really soon.

    Just "defeated" Egil in the Mechonis Core. So many twists in this game. It's cool to see that Ben has just started a first playthrough



  • Enraptured with Nioh!



  • I started Yakuza 0 on chapter 2 last night, I finished my 5 hour session... still on chapter 2.

    When I heard the series had mini-games, I was dismissive. I've played those in GTA, no big deal. No, these aren't throwaway games. Not only are they top quality and fun by themselves, you end up meeting new characters and getting new quests for doing well in them. WHAT MADNESS IS THIS? I'm ridiculously addicted to Pocket Circuit, spent a long time playing drunken darts (and winning big), and even the dance mini-game being my least favorite is still fun and unique.

    Walk into a random bar with no map marker telling me to do so, become embroiled in an underground gun trade. Things like this feel so natural and give a sense of discovery, unlike what we're used to with most open-world games - map markers telling you exactly what activity you'll be doing at any given area. There's map markers here of course, but there's still mysteries to be found in alleys that amount to more than "collect 300 of this item".

    It feels great to just hop into a long running series without experiencing the previous installments and just loving every second. I know there's hype for this franchise in this community and I finally get it. Budding Yakuza fan here, I just hope the other entries in the series let me race RC cars.



  • Yakuza 0
    Final Chapter, did Kiryu's last substory but I have no idea how to do Majima's really.
    Used a guide for the few missing phone cards and befriended both money loaners, completed the Adventure and Business completion lists. I don't think I will platinum this game as it requires me a 100% completion, and that requires me to git gud in Shogi and Mahjong, and that is not going to happen, lol.
    Should finish the story tomorrow.



  • If we were to do the top video game characters list i would easily put Estelle in my top 10. Shes such a joy



  • @FF7Cloud Now you see why I tell people not to overlook the Trails in the Sky games? haha
