[Official] What are you playing?

  • Finished Life is Strange... I guess.

  • close to finishing Trails of Cold Steel 2 (I think)

    Laura+Fie is so OP, that's all for now

  • Back to Persona 5. Cleared another palace...though I forget which....5 maybe? It's fine though. I've got a poster of Rise in my room now....lol.

  • It bugs me how the AI in NBA Playgrounds seems like it's built around just running down the shot clock, regardless of how they're doing in the match, instead of playing smartly. Other than that I think I dig the game overall, even if I am just kind of spamming Stephen Curry 3-pointers for most of the matches in Tournament mode.

  • @TokyoSlim Hah! That's really awesome.

    In addition to Original Sin I'm also plugging away at Mother 3 from time to time. I'm making a game that's highly inspired by its art style, but to my great shame I've never actually finished the darn thing for one reason or another. I don't think I've ever even reached the halfway mark

    I used to be really bad at finishing games, RPGs especially. I've gotten better at it in my old age

  • Mentioned that I completed Dishonored 2 and Downwell (well, platinum for it) in the finished topic.

    Another game I'm after starting is Wipeout: Omega Collection. It's a remaster so I won't go too much into the gameplay. It is everything I remember loving about these games and they look beautiful on the PS4. In particular, 2048 looks great. It's probably going to turn into that game I throw on every so often.

  • Because YouTube was populated by Oblivion a while ago, I decided to play Oblivion myself. It's... Interesting... That dialogue is janky at best (with the few exceptions). I avoid the main quest like it's plaque, because while it's not bad, I hate the Oblivion gates. They halt the game for 30-120 minutes (for me at least) just to go through one, and there are 64 in the game...

  • @jipostus Yeah, the gates can get pretty annoying after you close a bunch. The game doesn't expect you to go closing all of them, so just don't bother if you're finding it pace-breaking and tedious. I loved Oblivion, but there is quite a bit of jank that makes returning difficult. I'd say the worst is scaling enemies. You level up and feel great until you realize it just upgraded the regular brigands, making them ready to smash your face in with shiny new weapons and armor.

  • The deed is done, I platinum'd Persona 5 and finished the 2nd playthrough after 182 hours, 9/10

    Also in my quest of clearing my retro backlog I dared to play through Castlevania Adventure for Gameboy on my Retron 5, what a rancid piece of garbage that game is, no way I'll beat that without save scumming. 0/10 will never play again. I heard the 2nd one is better (not really an accomplishment but apparently it's decent?).

  • Got to 100% on Crash Warped. Is the platinum on that game hard? I might go for it. I want to start Wild ARMs 3 again, but...if I'm close...

  • Trails of Cold Steel 2, uuugggghhhh this game has officially outstayed its welcome

  • I got back to The Last Guardian last night after a long hiatus. I think I'm halfway through now.

    It has some great moments but the controls and camera are so ridiculously bad it severely affects my enjoyment of the game. It feels like a constant struggle. I'd probably have more fun watching a Let's Play of it.

    I'll power through it because I am genuinely intrigued by the story, but it's gonna have to pull off something truly mind-blowing for me to reconsider my opinion.

  • @bard91 Ah, you in that part that's like...unnecessary post game? lol, it annoyed me too.

  • @Minamik furious is more like it, because that annoying dungeon in Crossbell was not enough (the story was cool, the dungeon was a drag)

  • I'm really excited to play Trails of Cold Steel eventually (love love love TitS), but I keep hearing the same kind of complaints that it's a real slog. One guy I know said that he'd need at least 10 years before he could stomach playing the original ToCS again

  • @WarpDogsVG I don't really feel that way, i think I could play them again soon, if I didn't have a million other things I want to play, despite my complaining I enjoyed ToCS2, it simply didn't live up to the hype I had after the first and the fact that I'm playing it straight after my favorite game ever came out doesn't leave it in a great spot.

    I can't complare with TitS since I haven't played them, but to me the slog was not too bad in either of the two games.

  • @WarpDogsVG If you've played through the Sky trilogy first, you'll definitely get more out of the Cold Steel games, but yeah, I didn't really enjoy them nearly as much as the Sky games.

    But I'm devoted to seeing the overall story through to the end, haha.

  • Played the opening tutorial bit that comes with the Splatoon 2 splatfest demo. I love the designs for Pearl and Marina, but c'mon internet...Pearl is best girl.

  • Not playing anything right now lifes been getting in the way.

  • Kingdom Hearts 2 - My wife and I are both huge Disney fans, we saw Mulan together in the theater when it came out. We played through KH1 last month and are almost finished with 2. I don't think we'll play any of the other stuff before 3, Disney is kinda the draw (FF as well for me). I never liked any of the original KH universe after the first game (Hollow Bastion is great).

    Nier: Automata - I really need to find some time to devote to it before next month. I like what I've played but so much else got in the way, from Zelda to Mass Effect to now KH1/2.

    Nex Machina - I just really like the way Housemarque games play!
