[Official] What are you playing?

  • Final fantasy 7 remake. its really good. combat is fun, story is pretty good, graphics are amazing.
    although too many cutscene but still very fun game.

  • Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros 3 for Gameboy Advance on Wii U. I stumbled across a video on this game last week and it turns out it had a bunch of levels that were only available through e-reader cards. Some of these were region and/or retailer limited so getting a full set was pretty much impossible. There were 38 total but a system could only store 32 at a time. The Wii U version comes with all 38 e-reader levels included so I bought it to play those and they are really good so far. If you like Mario 3 and have a Wii U, you should get this.

  • Nier Replicant v1.22.....

    So... on my last day of vacation over the holidays, I played about 10.5h of Nier for the first time. I would say about 95% of the time was spend doing a shameful amount of fetch quests. This game might have the most fetchy side quests of all time. I actually feel ashamed of myself for even doing them.

    I'll be in a town like Seaside, clean up the missions. Then I'll return to my Village and get a new quest that'll say "A merchant in Seaside needs...." and I'll say to myself "BUT I WAS JUST THERE!".

    I have no fucking clue why I did all of that bullshit. Maybe 1 of the 22 quests I did had any worthwhile story threads. It was all fetchy bullshit. Still, here I am. I like the vibe of Nier despite everything. It definitely feels like a prototype for Automata though. Even the themes of isolation and lack of empathy and humanity are better served in a post-apocalypse inhabited by androids and robots as opposed to a weird generic JRPG pseudo-medieval fantasy backdrop.

    It's still cool to see the Blueprint and I'm so early on that I haven't hit any of the bonkers stuff.

  • Kena: Bridge of Spirits

    I have played it a little bit more than an hour and despite looking gorgeous it's bland? Hope that will change in the next hours or so but I don't likte the combat which was my main concern. Also why parrying is so hard in this game?

  • Alan Wake Remastered (PS4) -I got the game free at GameStop last week with some trade ins, price matching, and a $5 coupon. I am already almost done with the game. I beat on 360 back in 2017, and got the dlc for free and beat that too. Fun game, but the formula does get repetitive by the 2/3 point. You will see everything game has to offer by that point. With Alan Wake II now official, I am expecting so many more improvements from Remedy.

  • Started Huntdown. This game is fucking sick! The atmosphere of everything is top notch, with beautiful pixel art visuals and super solid 80s inspired banger tracks. Not to mention that the gameplay is basically a dynamic cover shooter combined with 2D platforming, which is a combination that I didn't know I needed.

  • While playing through Mass Effect 2 LE I played the Shadow Broker DLC for the first time. I'm amazed by how good it is. I'm not much into getting DLC but this might be one of the best ones, no?

  • @bam541 So glad you're loving Huntdown it's an amazing game.

  • I'm playing Tales of Arise. It's one of two Tales games I've played for at least 10+ hours, and I'm loving it so far.

  • Got halfway into Uncharted 4 in the Legacy of Thieves collection. I have to say that the 60 FPS coupled with the minor graphics improvements is much more pleasant than I expected. Like, it just feels so smooth and beautiful, it's very much feels like a great crossgen title. All ND games have to be 60 FPS now, there's just no going back after this lol. I was not planning to playing both U4 and LL in their entirety but now I feel like I have to, just as a treat for myself.

  • @bam541
    Same started up my Uncharted 4 save the other night just to experience it a bit, then played up to just before the big marketplace shootout because I suddenly realized it was 5am, and I needed to be at work soon. Also I love how like stupidly fast the game loads, hit start and BAM right to it.

  • Right now I'm playing DS2 for the first time. I'm very on the fence about keep playing it or not.

    Right now I'll say, not only is by far the worst From Soft game that I've ever played but also that I've played better Souls like games. I hope I manage to get into it but so far it's such a colossal disappointment.

  • @dmcmaster yeah the load times are so good, I actually don't have to wait like a full minute everytime I want to replay an encounter. I wonder how much this affects the speedruns.

  • Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (PS3). So far so good.

  • @e_zed_eh_intern
    If you can pick up the recent re-release, irons out some of the technical issues from the original release.

    Been playing dying light 2. Short version of thoughts: Story is kinda boring, but just running from roof to roof is fun. Hell even the "go collect X amount Y things" type quest are actually fun to do. Once you get some of your parkor skills leveled up (mostly the skills you'd think would be available from the start in a sequel)

    I have made a video where I ramble thru my thoughts a little bit. Going to try and make these a biweekly thing if time allows. Also practically no editing.

  • Tried out the 5 hour Cyberpunk 2077 trial on PS5. Night City looks real good. The cyberpunk aesthetic is still very appealing to me despite being so popular these days. I also taken a liking to the writing and dialogues so far. Other than that, seems like a good podcast game, at least for when I'm doing the side stuff or cruising around the city. Probably won't buy it soon but I'll definitely get to it someday.

  • Playing Sifu and it's a great example of how can be a good idea turn into torture.

    Awful progression system, incredibly annoying diffuculty, boring repetition 'till death and combat isn't suitable for fighting multiple enemies AT ALL!

    I would like to see this game adapt something like Arkham's combat; then even with all the annoyance I could tolerate it. Another thing could be ''real'' progression between runs or have an ability to start from the boss etc.

  • Just finished up playing Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Persona 5 Royal and now able to focus on Pokemon Legends Arceus and Horizon: Forbidden West finally. Backlog stuff for the month of March is Paper Mario, Sin & Punishment, Outer Wilds, and Halo Reach. Thankful March in the middle is tame from what I recall!

  • @scotty

    Just beat the 2nd boss but I have to beat it again! You know why if you've played the game. Never thought I wouldn't be satisfied for beating a boss that I stuck for hours or days.

  • Just played GT7 for a bit.... I'm using that as a chance to post this
