[Official] What are you playing?

  • I'm on my Dreamcast at the moment. I'm going for a replay of MDK2, a game I actually only beat once back when it came out. I slightly prefer the original, but this is still a fantastic game.

  • Been replaying Smash 4 since I got the 3DS version recently and it makes for a good "kill time during lunch break" game. Cloud and Pac-Man are still my favorites to use, which almost feels wrong in a game all about celebrating Nintendo's history, but whatever.

  • Evil Within 2, put a good few hours into it. I think I feel safe in saying this is like the SH or RE game we never got after RE4

  • Played some Tales of Berseria im about 35 hours in now i think im near the end the story just as you thinks its gonna take the next step just dosnt capitalize on its own momentum.

  • I made the Switch. Few initial thoughts:

    *This thing is way smaller than I expected. Never bothered to look up how big it actually was but I was expecting it to basically be a Wii U gamepad with the sides lopped off but side by side it dwarfs the Switch. I guess I shouldn't be surprised since it is meant to be portable and all but still.
    *I'm not really fond of using it in portable mode with the joycons latched on as a result (I thought the Wii U gamepad was the perfect size) but it's not really that bad.
    *Being able to hold both joycons in whatever position I want is oddly liberating considering it's not really that much different than the Wiimote in that regard. It just feels good to have my hands in whatever position feels right at the moment instead of having to keep both on it like a regular controller.
    *That joycon docking controller thing is an abomination and I couldn't even use it for two minutes during setup without throwing it back in the box never to be touched again.
    *First thing I bought for it was Sonic Mania despite already 100%ing it on PS4. I told myself it was to give the system a test run but really you can't ever have too many copies of the GOTY.
    *Holy shit Fast RMX is good. Don't know why I skipped the Wii U version but I'm glad I'm playing it now.

  • @DeweyDTruman What's your Friend Code?

    I have to disagree, I think it feels pretty good, been playing a lot of Xenoverse 2 with it without problem.

  • @Torigasa-Reta To be fair I've got giant gorilla hands (which is probably why I loved the Wii U gamepad, I've definitely heard complaints about its size before)

  • @DeweyDTruman Okay tbf I do have rather small hands, the original Xbox pad was a nightmare for me, lol.

  • I did not like The Duke, but I did grow fond of the Wii U gamepad...Just goes to show ya, it takes all types, lol.

  • @Minamik Had no problem with the Wii U Pad, played the entirety of Bayonetta 1 & 2 with it after not liking the Pro Pad.

  • I'm currently 17 hours into TEW2 and on chapter 12. I'm actually liking this one a lot more than the original. Thankfully the game hasn't gone and turned itself into a pure sandbox game like a good number of others have; instead, this hub-like structure to some of the chapters actually works in the games favour, and they are sized just about right as well. Combat it a lot more enjoyable as well, as now you actually have the space & means to approach the enemies tactically, and then run away to start again if you make a mistake.

    There are a couple of things I don't like, such as the need for a crafting/gathering system and the fact that the franchise still looks & feels too much like TLoU, but it's definitely still one of the years better games.

  • I'm trying to 100% A Hat In Time right now when I'm at home, but on the go I'm replaying Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest and debating whether or not I should jump in to Revelations. All I know is that Birthright is not an option, I cannot and will not betray Nohr. I feel like I haven't said this before on these forums but my love of Fire Emblem runs deep. I feel like I'm one of the few people who is eagerly anticipating FE Warriors, I know that it looks janky and all but like, it's Fire Emblem. I can't just pass up more Fire Emblem.

  • All I really got left in Peach Beach Splash is finishing up V-Road and if I feel like it grinding out the rest of the cards/leveling up everything/achievement hunting but I doubt I'll bother with that stuff. Fun game but I've more or less had my fill. Solid 7.

  • @DeweyDTruman Getting all cards and leveling everything is absolutely masochistic but the Platinum wasn't too bad
    alt text
    After beating V-Road and maxing out a team of 4, giving them only group heal and group shield skill cards they were actually able to win the last V-Road battle without me doing anything, and since that battle is on the stage with the high up platforms I could just go up there and never be in danger, play on my Switch or Vita while the A.I. fights, that way I earned 10k every 4 minutes, I don't think there is a faster way to earn money. I think the hardest trophy was beating 100 of the Shinobi with melee attacks, that was kinda annoying.

  • So im playing evil within 2 and im on chapter 5 something. its a really good game so far minus the hub based structure which im not a fan of.
    what i like is it run and play much better than original game which imo was terrible game.

  • @seppo91
    Middle Earth Shadow Of War & The Evil Within In 2 and some Battlefield here and there

  • GT Sport now and then, always been a series I have to be in a specific mood to play. Game is Fucking pretty though.

  • Tried some Mass Effect Andromeda since it is now included in Origin Access. Just a little more than character creation but looking at the male presets was nightmare fuel. Also direct comparison between male and female body proportions, ... just BARF! But managed to create a somewhat presentable female PC.
