[Official] What are you playing?

  • I am, or am about to play RE4 for the umpteenth and to give me an excuse to experience something a little different, I'm forcing myself to only use guns that Leon starts with or finds out in the game world. Still letting myself upgrade them, though.

  • @smoothrunes Just finished watching Huber's RE4 playthrough from GT days today. That was really something, liked it a lot. Kyle sitting by his side the whole time and rooting for him made me happy. :) And I loved those TMP discussions between them and the chat. "We won't hear it!" :D

    (Also, I was playing and grinding in Battle Chasers this whole time, it was a good combo this way.)

  • @bard91 Well, I've put it on hold for now if that says anything. It's like a fusion of the Cold Steel and Ys games, but doesn't fully do either of them all that well imo. But if you're into the general day to day feeling of the Cold Steel games, I'd say it's probably worth a shot. It was on sale on PSN when I got it, so I don't feel too burnt by it.

    Funnily enough though, I just started Ys Origins. I haven't gotten to Ys VIII yet, but I get the feeling that one's combat still won't be on the level of the 2D Ys games. Of all them I've played, Felghana was my first and still my favorite so far, but Ys Origins is putting up some good competition. I also haven't played the on Steam though either, the one that was originally on PS2 I think?

  • @sentinel-beach Red 9! Pops the heads right off! :p

  • @sentinel-beach Long after the human race has perished, the only signs of our existence left to the aliens will be the heavy documentation of the great TMP debate, and whether it caused the end of the world.

    For the record, I am #teamTMP

  • Fortnite finally showed up on the Region 3 PSN store, so now i'm playing that.

  • Beat Ys Origin, and then spent a few hours getting annoyed at the challenge quests in MHW for the Ryu and Sakura costumes...I'm not a fan of challenge quests...

  • Tried out the Life is Strange demo, really intrigued by it but i'm still on the fence whether to get the whole thing or not.

  • Shadow tactics.

    its basically commandos in japan.

  • Cosmic Star Heroine and also trying to remember which Frame Trap it showed up in.

  • I returned to Doom (2016) after a six months pause. Played the level where you get the double jump, the big tower one. Nooot the most exciting one to return to, I have to say. First person climbing and jumping isn't really my favourite thing in games, I mean. Well, I got through it, and the next address seems to be Something Else Entirely, luckily. :]

  • @deimosclay How is Cosmic Star Heroine? I saw it was coming to Switch and looks like a very decent 16-bit JRPG from the trailers.

  • @axel 7 hours in it has been quite solid so far. No big complaints and the soundtrack is cool.
    Well suited to a handheld (playing on Vita here) so should be good on Switch.
    I read things online a while back saying how buggy it was but haven't run into any problems so far. Maybe they patched them out.

  • Octopath traveller is weird.

    on one hand, i've ever been a big fan of turn based JRPG's. those type of games usually shit me to no end.

    but on the other hand i just can't seem to put this one down. granted i'm still only at the beginning. but so far i started my game with Therion and i just beat the first boss and moved onto the 2nd town. this definitely isn't my favourite type of game, far from it, but i'm strangely addicted at the same time.

  • Finally got back to playing Dragon's Crown Pro. It's fun, but has some flaws in the gameplay. IE, if you want to play as a new character, you have to go through all of the tutorials again. That is stupid, but it does not take away the overall experience. This game is a fun old-school style hack and slash, and might as well be the closest sequel we'll ever get ti Golden Axe or the two DnD games from Capcom. Great job, Vanillaware. I am looking forward to your mech game.

  • Attacked the stack earlier:

    • Aragami. Really enjoying it, gotta kill em' all.
    • Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell. "Flying" around is fun.

  • Sonic Mania Plus finally released, no way I'm putting anything before this.

    I'm not sure how I feel about Mighty's gimmick so far, neat that it keeps you safe on spikes but I dunno. Maybe I just need to play with it more. Ray's seems way more interesting but I haven't gotten the hang of it. I think I'll enjoy it a lot when I do though. I really love the way you switch characters in Encore mode, and how they basically replace lives. Pinball bonus stage is okay, but honestly after you've already gotten all the gold medals in blue sphere having something that can actually give you bonuses like lives or shields is better by default. The rings for special stages have been moved around, it's fun to have to re-learn those layouts even if these new stages are way harder than the originals (which isn't a complaint by any measure mind you.)

  • After about 6 hours of grinding, I went back to try the level I was stuck on in FF Tactics. Beat it without breaking a sweat. Special shoutout to @SabotageTheTruth for giving me tips to improve my party setup. Maybe I can actually beat this game now!

  • I'm still slogging away at Star Ocean 3. I just got to where you set off to form an alliance with Airyglyph.

  • 20 hours deep into Octopath Traveler!

    So far its everything I was hoping for and even more!!! Excited to see what happens in the end game with all of the characters, and how the difficulty increases.
