[Official] What are you playing?

  • I'm playing The Elder Scrolls Online. Next month it will get a new expansion (Morrowind). It is now free to play after you buy the game itself. But there are some privileges you can get by paying per month (mostly inventory space). I'm interested to see if the game is good because I hear they changed it a lot since its release.

    Oh and I'm playing the Gwent public beta on GoG Galaxy. I'm a little nervous about playing against other people. So I've been playing the challenges. Looks like a fun card game. I'm very much looking forward to the single player campaign in the full product. If you like free games, then give it a try!

    And! Today (tomorrow for Europe) is Global Testpunch day! I can't wait to get an impression of ARMS. All the footage looks good, but I want to know how it plays!

  • World of Final Fantasy: just started about in hour in

    Trails in the sky: The 3RD: on Chapter 2

    Dark siders: going to fight Tiamat

  • Persona 5
    I'm about to send the last calling card, I think, my level is 62, playtime around 110 hours.

    Dragon Quest Heroes 2
    I'm in the 3rd area now.

    Mega Man Zero
    Did 2 missions, a train and a desert, the boss in the train killed me several with the stupid pneumatic things ramming me into the spikes on the ceiling, it's awesome when bosses have 1 shot kills, so much fun especially since for whatever reason, after every death you get set back at the beginning of teh train, not in the room right before the boss like it is in other stages.
    The desert was a whole load of garbage, the beginning as alright, the boss killed me once but was okay, but then I had to ESCORT!!!! a wounded soldier back to the beginning of the stage, and he has no health bar so I can't even tell how endangered he while he just sits there and refuses to move when an enemy is close, because that's the typical soldier thing to do, just sitting there and let the enemy hit you right? He died, I game overed, ahd to do it all again, started to use save states because screw this game. I really don't like it so far.

  • Trails in the Sky: The 3rd. Love the teases for future games they'd included in this. Had no idea Lechter and Osborne were present this early in the series.

  • @Musou-Tensei At least your rage is entertaining :)

  • @BartSpits I'd recommend trying Gwent online, it's a lot of fun! The challenges are great for earning currency to get better cards, but the computer makes a lot of strange mistakes, completely ignoring card synergies. That real world experience playing against a human helps you build a better deck and cover your weaknesses, plus it's the wild west right now (as far as I know), in the fact there shouldn't be a "meta", nor would the matchmaking put you up against high level players. I've had some really intense matches.. and then some that had my opponent burning all of their cards in the first round as I laugh maniacally.

  • Ugh. Keep trying to connect to the ARMs global testpunch thing and it keep telling me my signal isn't strong enough, despite the fact my wii u is sitting right next to the switch, and i never had any issues with Splatoon.

  • I finally got connected to the global testpunch....I walked away sweaty and ashamed. lol....Probably should have tried a more well balanced character than Mechanica....but I love giant robots.

  • played more world of final fantasy

    in cornelia when the princess tells the prophesy the stain glass window with the title image from the first Final Fantasy hit me right in the nostalgia

  • @FF7Cloud said in [Official] What are you playing?:

    Darksiders warmastered edition pretty much a poor mans god of war

    Except for the fact that it's pretty much a Zelda game.

  • I've been playing some Trails of Cold Steel 2, and man I don't like saying this but I''m having a really hard time moving forward with this, if it weren't for the fact that I'm already invested in the story and characters I don't think I would even keep playing.

    I'm certainly enjoying everything that is related to the characters themselves and the story, but every other aspect of the game is something that I'm just having to power through at this point, and even though the structure isn't really different from the first game I'm having many more problems with it in here.

    Case in point being that when I played the first part I came home every day to keep playing and moving forward, now I'm juggling this with Yooka Laylee, Fire Emblem Awakening, Victoria 2 and FIFA simply because I don't always feel like playing ToCS2.

    Feels bad :(

  • @bard91 It really starts picking up about halfway through or so, I felt, but both Cold Steels just fell flat in comparison to the Sky games imho.

  • Currently waiting for Horizon Zero Dawn to arrive in the mail from GameFly.

    Figured I suck up not having much to play for the rest of the past week. And get Horizon before it becomes even harder to rent. Fortunately its coming faster than I thought. But its probably not gonna be here till Wednesday =(

  • Finally got around to finishing Mass Effect Andromeda, not afraid to admit that I actually really enjoyed it and think it's great. Maybe that's because I just can't get enough of Mass Effect in general.

    I personally enjoyed the characters and main story, but side missions left much to be desired, excluding the planet story-arcs, ark and crew missions of course.

    When Andromeda acted like Mass Effect is was good, but whenever it wanted to act like a different game with fetch missions and open world areas it lacked.

    Love the ending mission where allies and friends come and join the battle, bringing back memories from the game, and making go though some of the tedious 100% viability planet missions mean something and going back to Habitat 7 with the renaming was a nice touch for getting 100% viability also.

  • I'm currently playing through Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance for the first time, then I will playthrough Secret of Mana for 9th time, because that game is awesome... I feel like playing through some older games through this summer.

  • @Pat I think Andromeda is a great game too. Too bad the buggy launch and animation coding became game breaking for many. When the game gets juicer as the story unfolds and you progress further.

  • Marvel Heroes Omega - Dang, I'm starting to love this game. I can't say it's superb or does anything that different, but having an Ultimate Alliance feel with Diablo style loot just feels good. Strangely, I've had people who played the PC version say it's not fair to compare this game to UA or Diablo... but that's honestly the best description. With a nearly fully leveled up Doctor Strange, I can just summon an entire mess of stuff on screen and have it do my bidding. I've experienced a few crashes here and there but it's way more stable than the Gwent beta currently is. The story is extremely similar to the first Ultimate Alliance, with Dr. Doom being the big bad but it's serviceable. The cutscenes that bookend each chapter though are pretty terrible in quality.

    From what I've read, this PS4 version is still missing a lot of features from the PC release, most notably raids, certain characters, and clan support. I'd love to be able to play as Venom or Magneto, but it looks like I gotta wait. Daredevil is a free character if you have PS Plus, so that's... something. I think it'd be fun to set up some sort of EZA crew once that feature gets rolling, but the hype level is currently at a whisper. It's a free download people, help me defeat Doctor Doom!

    Even though I already have.

  • Trails the 3rd: Woo, that was a tough boss. I don't think I've had to use earth guard/wall that many times since the final boss of the first game. Though given who this boss was, I wouldn't have it any other way. Pretty cool finally getting to fight him, though I'd go even more nuts if you could recruit him.

  • @SabotageTheTruth Yeah, me and the BF started to play this today. It's fun, though I can't say I understand all the mechanics just yet. Only played the first couple of areas.
    When do you have to buy heroes? We've been able to try all of them so far.

    I played this ages ago when it came out on PC and enjoyed it enough, but stopped after not too long. Couch co op should help this version last longer.

  • @Inustar Check out for the traits section for each hero (once you're in Powers, press triangle), the section in the middle should help explain the mechanics that are specific to each hero. You can play any hero up to level 10, after that you have to use energy splinters to buy them.
