[Official] What are you playing?

  • I don't know why I do this to myself but I'm currently playing 9 games, without counting the ocassional Rocket League and FIFA matches, on top of a Prussia campaign on Victoria 2, the list includes

    Odin Sphere Leifthrasisr
    Persona 3 FES
    Etrian Odyssey V
    Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology
    Gravity Rugh
    The Witcher3
    Doki Doki Literature Club
    Xenoblade 2
    Dishonored 2

    On the good side I can say that Xenoblade is the only one on the list I'm not enjoying but I'm committing to go at least a bit further into it, and the first two are old favorites being revisitied so I have no problem going slowly with those.

  • Assassins Creed Origins

  • Replaying Witcher 3 on Xbox One X, I played it on PC first but it’s possibly even better on XB1X because of 4K and HDR which my PC rig isn’t doing yet.

    Started playing Xenoblade Chronicles 2 last night as well, enjoying it more than I thought I would!

  • @jaggafredde

    In the comment preview next to the thread title, it just says "Replaying Witcher 3 on Xbox One X, I played it on PC first but it’s possibly even better on XB1X" and I was VERY confused, haha.

  • just picked up no man's sky for 15 bucks and neir on 360 for 5 i know what im doing tonight

  • i do not like no man's at all

  • I'm playing Vagrant Story. Just reached The town centre west and got the crimson key.

  • @ff7cloud

    That was a beautiful update 4 hours after the initial post lmao! I laughed out loud.

    No Man's Sky is - in fact - ass.

  • @dipset your put in a middle of a planet the controls are ass floaty robots kill u and walking around kills u

  • @ff7cloud Basically how I feel about FarCry 2

    • Put in the middle of Africa
    • Gun jams, people kill you
    • If that doesn't, malaria will

  • @ff7cloud Don’t put it down! Are you playing on survival mode? It really shouldn’t be that hard if you play on normal mode unless you’re super unlucky with the initial planet spawn. Go normal and give it some time and you might end up loving it, trust me :)

    Feels like I have to defend it a bit here, you see I’ve been playing it for roughly 300 hours, no exaggeration, and it’s one of my favorite games right now, my kids love it too, it’s really special, once you get hooked and start to farm stuff it’ll swallow your free time like nothing else, and the never ending quest to find the perfect home planet obviously never ends. :) The support from the devs has been insanely good too, several huge free updates that has slowly made the game 10 times better than at the launch. The ARG was super fun as well, and I ended up getting a physical V4 Atlas Pass woohoo! :D

  • @jaggafredde im on normal and yes ill stick with it to fix the ship

  • @jaggafredde I picked up No Man's Sky at launch and liked it a lot, because I got the game I was expecting. A lot of people added in their own crazy ideas on what the game should be and really didn't give it a fair shake. I'm super curious about all the new updates though, I need to reinstall that bad boy!

    Ugh. Everyone, you don't understand pain until one of your favorite characters in the Danganronpa series as whole turns out to be a killer. It hurts the spirit. Still working my way through D2 and it looks like I have two chapters left. This game took a lot longer for it to sink its hooks into me (unlike the first game) but now I'm really starting to feel it.

  • I bought Bridge Constructor Portal. I don't know why exactly but I keep seeing it on PSN, Steam and eShop and it kept tempting me and I finally broke I guess.

    It's fun. It's not funny when it's trying to be, but it is funny when I watch my slipshod bridges just crumble under the slightest pressure and the dudes bail out into an acid pit. So there's that.

  • Banned

    Got Little Nightmares complete edition on the PSN sale going on. Might try to play some of that when I inevitably have to wake up in the middle of the night to feed babby.

  • Y A K U Z A K I W A M I

    I have to say, after playing Yakuza 0 and now 3 chapters into Kiwami, Yakuza has easily jumped into my favourite all time series. It feels so special and warm to just walk around the city that is so believable. Very few games immerse me like Yakuza does. The story and characters have so much drama and emotion attached to them that you can play it for the story only and enjoy yourself but its also fun to just walk around. I can't wait for Yakuza 6 and I can't wait to see where they go after Yakuza 6.

  • Banned

    @dipset Yakuza games are peak comfy.

  • Still playing Persona 5, 50 hours in. It's already number 2 in my personal best games of all time list, maybe could be number 1 when i finish it.
    Also playing Monster Hunter World in between P5 sessions, absolutely love it. I'm a big fan of the Monster Hunter games on PSP, never played one since they when to Nintendo up until this point. It's pretty tear-inducing for me to think that what i dreamt years ago (a console MH game) would come true in the best possible way.

  • Despite having nearly every fan tell me to avoid Danganronpa Another Episode : Ultra Despair Girls, I decided to take the plunge last night. I'm only close to the end of the first chapter so my opinion could change.... but I actually like this game... a lot.

    The first thing I noticed was the upped production value. Instead of just static character images that sometimes change poses a la the main series, there's actually a lot of anime-esque cutscenes and while the 3D character modeling isn't going to blow anyone away, it is nice to see characters actually move around scenes and emote towards each other. The protagonists back and forth might be my favorite part of the game and while the shooting isn't groundbreaking, it honestly isn't bad either. Overall, vibes are real nice and dark and everything fits together in a way that reminds me of Killer 7.

    My main downside right now is the antagonists they set up immediately. Shooting Monokumas is great (and much needed) but the children behind everything are just downright annoying. I don't know how much screen time they honestly get or if they develop beyond those initial stages, so I have no clue how that is going to affect my enjoyment. The camera isn't the greatest and is zoomed in a little too close to the character, but it works. I've also experienced one crash and had to replay about twenty minutes worth of content, which isn't the worst thing in the world, but I truly hope that was a one time occurrence.

    Either I'm falling in love with what the world considers a 7, or the world doesn't know what it is talking about. Can't wait for the next few days when I get to dive in deeper.

  • @sabotagethetruth I've actually skipped that one but not because of a recommendation, it simply fell through the cracks and I never actually got it, having played the 3 main games already I'm not so sure that I want to play it in any case, seeing how I like the series but I'm not so invested in it that I feel I need to go over all of it, which is also why I dumped the anime a few episodes in.
