[Official] What are you playing?

  • Weekly update
    NieR: Automata
    Lv.43, Missions: 53%, Ends: A G K T U

    As the A ending indicates I am now on my 2nd playthrough, the new elements are neat, I can finally open all those darn locked chests and doors, also if I would sell all my machine cores I would be rich af, but I know the price for them will go higher later, so I keep them for now. The last thing I did was fighting Adam in the desert area.

    Horizon Zero Dawn
    Lv.27, Progress: 37,63%
    Storywise I basically jumped the border between the Nora land and the Carja land and am on my long way to Meridian. I have so far cleared the entirety of the Nora lands and beat my 1st cauldron. Their architecture reminds me of Replicant architecture from Stargate SG-1

    The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky FC
    Chapter 3, Jr. Bracer - 2nd Class, Estelle: Lv.26, Joshua: Lv.26, Others: Lv.25-26

    About to get the Prof out of Leiston Fortress, well at least I will try to do that by storming the lab he is held captive in by fighting 2 Jaegers that are guarding him.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
    Hearts: 6, Stamina: 1 3/5, Shrines: 27, Koroks: 115

    After some commenst in the game's thread here telling me that not every area will be visited by following the story I decided to explore the world counter clockwise starting in the southern area with the castle area being the last one. I'm now in the lower right area. I think after 2 more stamina upgrades to have 2 full rings I will concentrate on hearts for a while, like maybe 1 entire row before I start alternating again. I havn't cooked a damn thing since last week and don't really miss it.

  • want to finish Trails today but my laptop randomly stopped recognizing my DS4

  • Nier Automata: I've barely even scratched the surface, because I got addicted to the side quests almost from the get go.

  • Halfway through Starcraft and hot damn, I'm still loving it. Towards the end of the Terran campaign, I had to start "cheating". As a kid, I'd always input codes and just breeze through everything but this is a different form of cheating. I've just been looking up strategies on some of the harder missions and the guide I've been using always has multiple solutions, some of which are ideas I would have never come up with on my own (leapfrogging tanks? I love it!). I really have to respect the mission design in this game as they find clever ways to bar you from using the same strategy over and over.

    I was hoping to finish this and all of Brood War before Persona 5 but I'm starting to run out of time, hopefully I can finish the Zerg campaign tonight.

  • well finished breath of the wild. waiting for horizon to go on sale an some other things. I startet up for the first time FF6 and played up untill jones first stream. I want to play with him till the end.

  • just got done with Playthrough A of NieR: Automata. very surprised by this game, been loving it so far!!

  • @aer0blue Ditto!

  • Playing a little Ori and the Blind Forest

    Honestly it's kinda dissapointing so far, the game is really pretty but the gameplay its meh, and the game hasn't managed to really get me into it.

  • Yakuza 0 Finally finished it. Loved it, A game for me. Lot of fun, lots of things to do and just has so much style. Loved the Cabernet club mini game, but wish it wasn't such a grind

    I guess I'll be going back and trying to finish Super Mario Galaxy 2 before Persona 5 gets here next week

  • Alongside Breath of the Wild I'm undertaking a spring cleaning of my backlog so I can tackle the 2017 games with a clear conscience.

    So I'm juggling Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, Fallblox, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice, and Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation.

    Should be finished with a couple of those soon so I'll give my impressions later.

  • I'm still making my slow meandering way through Breath of the Wild and really savouring the experience.

    I'm mainly playing it on my commute which is interesting because the game is holding up surprisingly well to being played in short bursts. It's all about setting a short term goal or two that I will get distracted from for a bit before finishing it as my train pulls into the station.

    I'm also still playing Fire Emblem: Awakening on and off with Zelda on my commute. The game has really opened up now and I am being given multiple opportunities to do optional side and challenge missions to improve my characters. I've got few favourites now which mean I'm having to reset more frequently than I was before when the games cruel RNG makes its presence known. Like I've said elsewhere everyone else has a three strikes and their out rule that can be superseded by a "death" being dramatic or funny enough to trump the strikes.

    For those who are interested I have made Tharja my waifu queen! Her dark charms and persistence in wooing me won me over*.

    She is a conundrum of a simplistic character archetype with a complex depth that is there if you happen to hear the right soundbites or see right side scenes.

    *Her dress sense also helped :P

  • Just finished Trails in the Sky SC now all i need is a date for the 3rd

    didnt quite have the powerful ending of the first but ties things up nicely

  • @thenerdtheword Tharja is probably my favorite FE character, but I disapprove of you trying to steal my wife. Have at you!

  • how do you guys cope with family, work and games? dammit, Im too tired for Zelda.-

  • @Roberto-Figueroa-CGZ

    im a 25 year old single guy in a dead end job who still lives with his parents lol

  • Nier Automata: Finished the B ....route? ending? Looking forward to see where it goes from here.

  • @Roberto-Figueroa-CGZ I play in very short bursts! The most gaming time I get in one go (if I'm really lucky) is 2-3 hours.

  • Did some busywork for two particular characters in Nier Automata. They sure like to send you into the thick of it..wow.

  • I'm around 60 hours deep into Breath of the Wild and thinking I'm going to wrap it up this weekend, for real this time. I've completed 4 dungeons, got all but one memory, and have almost explored as much of the world as my little open world heart can take. I'm going to spend a couple more hours running around completing little side quests here and there for fun but then it'll be time to move towards the end game.

    I am also at what I believe to be the last stage of Shovel Knight. This game has been a real joy to play. Every time I play I have to teach myself how it controls because it just isn't intuitive for me but its not bad. I'm definitely going to get the DLC at some point in the future.

    As always I'm playing a little Rocket League on the side. I'm very casual (only barely reach challenger last season) but it's [mostly] fun to play some some friends. This current season has hurt so far though because I placed relatively low and then went on a massive losing streak in doubles so I ended up as low as you can go. Been trying to fight my way back up to a somewhat less embarrassing rank since with little success. It's going to be a long season but I can only improve. I just have to try to not care as much since I don' dedicate the time to it that I should if I really wanted to get good and rise the ranks. If my friends aren't on I'd rather play anything else.

  • And I just beat Shovel Knight. Had no idea about the extra stuff at the end. What a nice surprise! This game has thoroughly exceeded my expectations. I now know what all of the hubbub was about, and why many people like Brad have bought the game so many times on different platforms. Bravo Yacht Club Games. Bravo.
