[Official] What are you playing?



  • I think i am an hour away from beating A Plague Tale: Innocence.
    Being streaming the whole thing on my twitch and youtube by the way.



  • DQB2: Didn't expect the story to be nearly as interesting as it is so far.



  • Sekiro
    About 15-20h in. Combat is ok but sometimes feel unresponsive. Camera control is so bad that I'm constantly swearing. A. I. is also all over the place. The more I play, the more I wished this would have been a Tenchu game instead.
    Just gonna continue and see if my mind changes for it.



  • Im 15 hours in zero no keseki/Trails of Zero and im really enjoying it. this is more of a direct sequel then Cold Steel is which takes place at the same time.
    Zero takes no time to reintroduce you to old faces but uses them just enough the game play is pretty much the same adding some features that will evolve again in Cold Steel.



  • Got back into RDR 2, man I miss this game. Just reached chapter 5, can't say I didn't expect where this ended up but it's really fun seeing the chaos of it all. What a mess, these gang of thieves.



  • I was playing Metal Gear V... The prologue was kind of annoying but wtv most games tend to be. A bit too silly too. Played the first mission in Afghanistan and enjoyed it right until the end when it became silly again. Uninstalled it.



  • Just finished Judgment. It's no Yakuza Zero, but it's real good if you like these kinds of games.
    8.0/10



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

    @gageblackw23 I cannot, for the love of god, find my copy of Demikids Light. And I never even got to play it. I don't imagine it could compare to the stronger SMT games but nonetheless, I wanna do the whole dang series.

    I'm playing it emulated since the game never came out here in EU, i usually buy games but in this case i would have to buy a US or Japanese GBA and then find a copy, it sounds so complicated.

    I think it's a game worth checking in this day and age where some people feel Game Freak is too conservative with Pokémon, it's interesting to see a different perspective on a similar concept. One interesting note is that while it is for kids, the game is not that easy, it doesn't treat you like an idiot which is nice.



  • Well i think i may have spoiled the identity of someone in Zero no kesiki by playing cold steel first



  • Tried out Strider (2014). I like how Hiryu controls movement wise, climbing on the sides of surfaces is pretty fun, and how the game looks graphically. The combat is very simple, mostly I'm just mashing Square and blasting through most enemies easily. There's not much reward in killing enemies so I'm more inclined to just get through them as fast as I can, and this indirectly makes the enemies way more annoying because they can disrupt my movement quite easily. Boss fights so far are very underwhelming. This will probably end up being a podcast game soon.

    Also, I think Souls fatigue has completely taken over me. Can't even play Sekiro for more than an hour without aggressively yawning. Not saying Sekiro's bad, it's awesome and it brought a lot of cool mechanics that I really enjoy into the Souls formula. I guess I'll be skipping Souls-esque games for a while.



  • Dragon Quest 2. Great game so far. Like the first, I recommend a guide. I never would have figured out half of the things so far and would have walked away long ago. Still, the DQ charm is there and I'm enjoying it.



  • I haven't played a Sims game for quite a while, and I was feeling the itch so I bought The Sims 4 for PS4. Not gonna force my lil' laptop to deal with this CPU-memory hog.

    Anyway, it's pretty good so far. I think Sims 4's lesser scale compared to Sims 3 suits the console playstyle better compared to PC (although Sims 3 on PS3 is pretty amazing, I miss that game). The controls are the most underwhelming part, I expected a more integrated and natural-feeling control scheme, but it's actually like a halfway between actually trying to make a gamepad-friendly controls and directly porting the PC version without changes. It's not too bad, I just need to get the hang of it, but it's definitely a hindrance.

    Everything else is just... well, Sims 4. I don't think it's as fun as Sims 3 but it's still a pretty good game.



  • Started Wolfenstein Youngblood. Two plus hours in so far and I'm quite impressed, even though they did a story trope that I hate.

    I didn't expect it to be have RPG mechanics: it is in place of the old progression system and I certainly like it more so far. Other than that, gameplay wise, it feels more like New Order than New Colossus (which is a good thing), with tighter controls and more balanced difficulty. I don't know what they changed exactly but going guns blazing is so much fun here. It's so much fun that I didn't do much stealth at all. This might change when the game starts to get harder.



  • Omega Labryinth Life is pretty okay so far. Haven't made a lot of progress yet but I think my favorite thing so far is customizing the garden. Reminds me of when I used to play Animal Crossing: New Leaf and I'd spend days just getting all the flowers and trees placed exactly where I wanted them (until somebody moved in to town and destroyed everything by plopping their house right in the middle of a peach grove or something.)



  • just finished Zero no Kesieki wow a little darker of a game tied up some loose ends from skymore of a sequel then cold steel is



  • Finished Heart of Darkness for the PS1, it was fun. A shame that the gameplay was so messy but other than that it was good. Animations are particularly excellent. And for the first time I'm playing Alan Wake and... holy smokes, it's not very often that I play through a game for 6 hours straight, but I'm loving it. How could have have missed this last gen? This completely smokes Uncharted and Gears. Love the shooting, art direction and storytelling so far. And the Twin Peaks vibes... is like this game was made for me. I was hyped for Control but now I'm beyond that.



  • I've put a number of hours into Dragon Force, which I've had an interesting relationship with.

    At first, it's super absorbing. Understanding the different systems, figuring out which troops best others, searching castles, recruiting captives, the little story segments that pop up in the first hour or so. It's attractive and it makes you look forward to what surprises it might hold. Then there aren't any surprises, or if there are, there aren't any in the several hours that follow the first. Once the loop is understood, it's a schematic, slow game that asks you to play it conservatively. There is just nothing keeping me on the line here, though I may turn it on one last time to see if it can pull something out of its pocket.



  • I've finally started up Left Alive. Right off the bat I could see it was a game for me, but reading review after review, each one just cemented that feeling even more.

    Every review I read gave me deja-vu for when I was looking into Alpha Protocol; a fantastic game that was heavily put down mostly because of graphics, animation and mechanics that appeared a generation behind. Graphics and Character animation I personally find irrelevant, but old school mechanics are almost always a plus these days.

    I'm not too far in yet, but I can tell already that I'm sticking with this one for quite a while.



  • Omega Labyrinth Life, still.

    I got to a point where there's character specific dungeons that are a lot harder than the normal ones (mostly because you enter with nothing and have to scrape by with whatever gear you find) and promise some good character-specific loot if you beat them. Finished one and I got... underwear (which is basically armor in this game) with worse stats than what I already had equipped just from bumbling through the dungeon, nevermind what I had been using before entering it, and with a really dumb gimmicky special ability (made all the seeds you find for the garden in the hubworld into one specific type) instead of something useful like stat boosts.

    I'm gonna try one more of these to see if that was just a bad decision for that one character but if this one also gives such useless armor I'm gonna just go back to the story dungeons.



  • Trails to Azure this may become my new favorite of the series
