[Official] What are you playing?

  • @GoTaco I can see how some would find her voice annoying, but at least I grew to like it, partly because it is much more in character with her than her original voice, which was definitively much lower key.

    The changes for Teddie were sometimes pretty apparent but usually pretty negligible, Rise in Dancing All Night though ... that one was really rough.

    I picked up Tales of Berseria last week; finally had the time to dig more into it from Sunday on though! About 29 hours in and oh man am I enjoying myself more than I thought I would. I knew I'd probably at least like it. But I really am loving it. The main parts are fun but all the "side" things and side conversations are where I'm feeling so much richness. It's all the little things!

    I just want to hug all these characters to death and get to know them all. Both the main cast and all the people one meets.

    If I had to guess I think I'm somewhere around the half way mark. Probably somewhere past it a bit. Maybe. I'm so bad at gauging and I don't want to check :p

  • Finally started playing Beyond Good and Evil HD. Really fun so far

  • Started X-com: Enemy Unknown Plus on vita.

    First game after the tutorial was a bit of a buggy mess and had to restart but it's been all good since then. Think it really suits a portable device too. It'll be interesting to see how long I keep playing as I had it on PS3 too but just stopped playing for some reason.

  • Currently balancing Trails in the Sky SC, World of Warcraft, and Resident Evil 0 HD.

  • Paragon. Every day.

  • Just played a bit of Human Revolution on PC, I really need to break down and buy a mid range gaming PC

  • DotA 2
    Talos Principle
    I Am Setsuna
    Battlefield 1 Open Beta
    Clicker Heroes
    Trying to get back into Skullgirls

  • Deus Ex Mankind Divided has my focus at the moment, but I haven't been able to play a lot of games at the moment anyway. DEMD kind of demands that I have a few open hours at once which I haven't had a lot of lately.

  • I'm playing Deus Ex Mankind Divided on PS4 while I'm at home and still playing P4: G on my downtime at work (I have a lot of downtime - at 20h).

    I was complaining about Chie earlier and I have to say that her voice lets up drastically as the game progresses. It was brutal near the beginning but I think the writing is also just a lot more trivial in the beginning hours too. I have no issue anymore.

    I have a lot of fun playing some of these scenes. These kids are a lot more childlike than I ever was but as an adult its fun to play something so youthful in spirit. I really like Yukiko, Kanji, and Rise, they have a fun spirit about them.

    As per Deus Ex: MD,

    I have really sunk my teeth into this game and I wish I hadn't because I'm about to start 4th year of university. I've gotten so into side missions and exploring that I have literally only done ONE main mission in a good handful of hours of play. The atmosphere is truly there.

    However, I get serious Oblivion/Skyrim vibes and for the wrong reasons. This game controls and simply feels absolutely clunky. At least on PS4. The frame rate drops all of the time, there is a lot of screen tear, and movement feels very angular and clunky. Something like jumping feels no different, say, climbing over a rocky hill in Skyrim; no grace to smoothness at all. UI is slow to load and save reloads are over a minute which really takes away. I also find my lipsync is waaaaaay off. Not even close. I'm surprised nobody is mentioning any of this in the reviews.

    With that said, its a very rich game. Sometimes I find 3 different ways to complete a side mission before I even finish it. Clearly a great bang for your buck title.

  • I'm making a final push to beat A Link Between Worlds.

  • Mankind Divided, it could be edging out Uncharted for my GOTY

  • @GoTaco Yay, I knew you'd see the (golden) light of Persona. Although no mention of how wonderful Naoto is happens to be a little suspect...

  • Fallout 4 on survival mode. Holy shit Intense!

  • I tried playing Damnation on PS3 but it was atrocious. I can't remember the last time I actually had to stop a game for being too bad for me.

    I'm back plodding on with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided now.

  • Riptide GP2, also thanks Bosman
    SEUM Speedrunners from Hell, Friend bought it for me now I gotta beat all his times
    Quake Live, trying to get good so I don't get rekt when Champions comes out
    -About to start: Valkyria Chronicles, thanks to Ben for recommending it I feel bad for not starting it yet.

  • Just beat Doom for 3rd time in row. Incredible, incredible game.

  • @Sheria said in [Official] What are you playing?:

    How it is compare to Human Revolution??

  • Better so far, but also, too alike.

    I have a feeling it will trump HR, but it's not going to touch the original.

  • @Sheria

    so is it best since original?

    Many people who bought on steam complain about its microtransaction, short, incomplete story etc thats really scaring me.
