[Official] What are you playing?

  • @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

    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.

    I've been putting in a lot of time into Dragon Quest Heroes 2 right now.

  • Decided to just put on the Gundam building stream archive and grind in Peach Beach Splash this morning, surprisingly fun. Wouldn't say I made any actual progress towards completing the binder or anything but at least I found a mech pet which already seems way better than most of the other ones (besides Kagura since shields are way too good) and got the shotty maxed out.

    Also I don't know if I like Super Bomberman R or not. I mean, if I didn't I wouldn't still be playing, but I can't get a grip at all. I've spent entirely too much time yesterday and today just trying to beat the first world in story mode. (Edit: just beat the first world. I only really did it by basically suiciding and then using I-frames to spam bombs when he was near me until I got lucky, and then when I realized there was a second phase I just spammed bomb rows and strafed around him. It didn't feel good. I don't think I deserved to beat it, and honestly if the next world isn't better I think I'm done playing this game outside of messing around in multiplayer or something.)

  • @Black-Cell I'm playing the Evil Within 2 too but I think the first one was way better. Open(ish) world structure deteriorates the whole horror aspect for some reason. Map & waypoints don't fit the game either.

  • I'm really into Fornite: Battle Royale now. I own PUBG, but Fortnite BR but scratches that itch in a way PUBG doesn't. The rest of my gametime is spent whittling away at Golf Story, Splatoon 2 and Crash N-Sane trilogy furiously before Odyssey comes out and takes all my time!

    Been meaning to replay Horizon, New Vegas, and start Witcher 3 too, PLUS there's the Overwatch Halloween event to jump on. Times are tough.

  • On World 4 of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. I’m still enjoying the heck out of this game the only real annoyance is the random difficulty spikes.

  • Playing Stormblood, currently in the process of leveling up my Paladin job which is at 68. Completed all the Level 68 sidequests, so I'm gonna have to rely on Kojin beast tribe quests and a few roulettes to grind to 69.

  • About to finally boot up Prey. Been playing Destiny 2 almost non-stop for the last month and a half but I can't get the last piece of gear I need to get 305 on my third character, which bums me out. Took a bit of a break to play SOMA too.

  • Replayed Super Metroid last week. Hoping to finish off Final Fantasy Tactics TWotL before Odyssey drops.

    Between Odyssey and Stranger Things Season 2, I'm going to be in full hibernation mode next weekend.

  • Playing through Dishonored Death of the outsider. Haven't heard to many people talk about it but I'm having a good time with it. I've played all 3 Dishonoured games this year its now one of my favorite series. I've got Prey on my list next. Hopefully Bethesda will keep letting Arkane make more gamed like these it be a shame to see the disappear especially since Square have put Deus Ex on ice.

  • At the moment I have been jumping between South Park AFBW and Gran Turismo Sport.

    But i bought a g29 and now i noticed they have added full championships into the sport mode, the game really is something special. Just such an amazing racer and that feeling when you do that perfect lap is something else.

  • since I was traveling and I only had my Vita on me I've only played Steins Gate for the last 3 weeks, and not a ton of that tbh, this game has been so weird, I do like the story, there have been a few times I've felt the game is about to go into fifth gear, and then it just pumps up the breaks again, and while interesting it hasn't had a huge payoff yet, but knowing the general perception of it I'm hoping there will be, even if thus far it seems to be taking it's time and then some.

    I'm hoping I can finish it up quickly to move on to Danganronpa 3
