@SabotageTheTruth I bought it on sale over the weekend and just played the opening little bit. It's gorgeous, the art and music are really blowing me away. This game has a tone.
I'm also working through Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, which I've been discussing in another thread. It's super good, but every once in a while there's a level that makes me want to kill someone. I've heard that's fairly normal, though.
In any case, I think these two games will balance each other out pretty well. I also have a perpetual game of Divinity kind of going whenever I feel the itch. That one is harder, though, since I rarely have extensive periods of time to just sit down and play games. When I do have time, I always feel guilty if I'm not working on some of my countless other tasks, so I haven't played as much of Divinity as I wanted to. Maybe once things quiet down a bit I'll be able to get a lot more done.
On another note, 15 days til Pokemon! It's the first thing I've ever done a media blackout for. Unfortunately it wasn't a 100% success, since thumbnails and headlines pop up freaking everywhere, but I'll still be going in mostly blind. So pumped!

Exactly my situation! I realized with X/Y how much it detracts from my enjoyment to know so much in advance. It's difficult, but it'll be worth it!

@FF7Cloud Personally, I've only played a very little bit of it. It's in my backlog, though. Treasure is a great studio. The Sin and Punishment series started on N64 but I don't believe it made it to North America. It may have been Japan release only.
I like to think the game design is similar to Wild Guns for SNES or NAM 1975 for the arcade.
@matt my favorite treasure game will always be mischief makers on the n64

You mean Divinity: Original Sin?

@Axel Yeah, sorry I forgot that there was an original series before this one.

@FF7Cloud That's on my list for sure. My favorite is Guardian Heroes. It just came out of nowhere for me. My uncle bought it for Sega Saturn and eventually passed it on to me. It's a one of a kind game. Battles feel like true full scale battles. Complete onscreen chaos.
Holy crap! I just looked it up and didn't realize they re-released it on for XBOX live. I recently traded in my original copy. May have to pick this up since it's only $5.

The new Animal Crossing update has pulled me back into that game. It's good, because I need a distraction on my commute to and from work while I wait for Pokemon for the next couple of weeks.
I'm also playing Paper Mario Color Splash, which I'm enjoying WAY more than I was expecting! It's no Thousand Year Door, but I'm loving getting 100% on each location and the writing is top notch (even with the boring Toad NPCs).

Started World of Final Fantasy on PS4 today, it's great so far.
I am about to start Tales from the Borderlands. Great fan of Borderlands (I beat each entries of the series) and I already played The Wolf Among Us from Telltale, so I won't be lost I guess !
I have heard that, sadly, Telltale only did a great job on these two games and The Walking Dead, so I might get someday Walking Dead as well.

@Browarr Tales from the Borderlands is amazing! And I wasn't even a fan, haven't played any of the shooters. The characters are such a joyful bunch to follow, and the dialogue and the comedy works very well. Along with the drama, got me emotional couple of times. And I'm getting you overhyped, but wait till you witness those opening segments with their musics in every episode. Oh my word :D Have fun!
@Sentinel-Beach My steam download looks so slow now that you said that haha :D Can't wait to play it !
By the way I wrote a couple of posts ago that I had a blast with Overwatch but I already got enough of it. I guess multiplayers aren't my cup of tea anymore (I used to play too much of online shooters when I was younger). I wanted (and I did) to improve by watching streams, improving my aiming, etc. But being focused on a single game made me sick.
Offline games, at least for me, have the magic that online games don't. My only long-waited MMO I definitely want to play is Star Citizen, but it is a space sim (and I am a great fan of space-based media) so this may work this time :)

I've been messing around with Space Engine a lot over the past week. Super cool game/simulation!
downloaded Everyones going to the rapture while walking sims arent my thing i like gone home so ill see where his goes. I assume this is a longer game then gone home?
bought Wild arms 3 off the psn store as it was 70% off for the 10th anniversary sale i played the first 2 and loved the turn based battle with 2d zelda like dungeon design. i prefer the second one to the first as i think the character of brad is just so well written and deep. We'll see where 3 goes i just completed Virginia's opening.
I purchased Butcher on GOG and I am having good fun. It is an indie Action/Platformer but I prefer to refer to it as "2D Quake with a die and retry design". I refer Butcher as being a 2D Quake because of the same mood and aesthetics. You play as a soldier (I guess ?) and you basically shoot other armed humanoids in grimy, industrial, futuristic levels. Butcher is a mix between old school shooters (you carry several weapons at the same time, there is no health auto-regeneration and you have points of armor) but set in a 2D perspective.
There is also a tiny focus on speedrun with the game recording your ingame time and showing it at each level beaten (with an overall timer).
I easily recommand it for people in need of visceral, atmospheric, hardcore shooters or just for folks nostalgic of pre auto-regen shooters :D

So I watched the fellows of Continue? play Landstalker for the Genesis last night and my immediate thought was, "THAT LOOKS LIKE ALUNDRA!" (I was really excited, I don't know why). Come to find a decent number of the developers from the Landstalker team worked on Alundra. Not only was the price right ($6) but it's something I haven't played since the original release and going through it nearly 2 decades later I can say - this game has aged extremely well, is absolutely charming, and I'm now confused as to why more Zelda fans haven't tried it out. Granted, I haven't yet made it to any of the difficult areas of the game (I remember beating my head metaphorically against the wall for hours as a kid due to this game) but still, I can't recommend it enough.
