[Official] What are you playing?

  • I made it to a certain escape section in Trails in the Sky SC, and realized it's 4 in the morning...Oh well...tomorrow!

  • Final Fantasy XV, loving it so far. The battle theme is gorgeous.

  • Just beat Pokemon Y, first mainline game I play since I the original Saphire, and all I can say, is that I'm glad I'm done with that, and I'm probably not going near any pokemon game anytime soon.

    First few hours were pretty good, but as I kept playing I rememberd how many problems I have with this games, and it's a real shame because there some aspects were I can see a lot of quality, but the shortcomings are to big for me to ignore.

  • @bard91 pokemon y was also the first one i played since saphire and i felt the same way the game design while of high quality is quite dated

  • Made it to Chapter 8 of Trails in the Sky SC. Things are getting crazy!

  • Just began Uncharted 3, sadly I'm not surprised that I was not even 10 minutes in and I already didn't like it. A particular detail concerning an error with an incredibly easy spanish translation was particularly painful. Just as when playing Uncharted 1 and 2 I keep wondering how it is possible that this is the same studio that made The Last of Us.

  • just a update on zesteria im liking it so far the world and story set up is nice like all the characters except sorey you can tell tri crescendo helped with this game but its not as good as graces and xillia the high pont of tales for me

  • Trails SC: Delivered the ZFGs to Bose, Ruan, and Zeiss, along with all their sidequests.

  • playing fairy fencer is the game supposed to be self aware or is the writing so bad its good?

  • Bought Battlefield 1 on PS4 three days ago, and I am having a really good time playing it.
    I am not a big fan of BF but I used to play them when I was a little bit younger (especially Battlefield 1942, a little bit of BF2 and Bad Company 2).
    Strengths of the game are its stellar sound design (weaponry animations and shooting are great), stunning graphics (and I play on PS4) and a sheer sense of being on a battlefield. This might be the first BF where I actually feel like being on a battlefield.
    I also enjoy the tone of the game: War is not glorified and too much lives were lost, if I had to sum up. This type of approach cuts with what we are used to with other games, so this is very welcomed.

    I don't have any concern about the game (this one is really great) despite my habit of playing fast shooters and not having the same fun playing Battlefield. But the more I play it, the more I like it so this is a good sign.
    If some allies would like to play with me, bring it on !

  • Finally beat The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC. Now I'm debating over whether to try struggling through Trails the 3rd on PSP with my limited knowledge of Japanese, or to skip on to playing Trails of Cold Steel.

    Skyrim remastered! after finishing off my Dishonored high chaos run I bought Skyrim on the black friday discount. I had kinda forgotten how awesome this game were and it gave me that happy feeling inside when I returned to the world! <3

  • Went swimming in 7's with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. Really enjoyed it!

  • Played through the prologue of Trails in the Sky: The 3rd, and got the gist of it, but it was pretty rough, so I've decided to start on Trails of Waifu...err...Cold Steel.

  • @BigWoofie4 Enslaved is one of those hidden gems, never managed to beat (only played it for one or two hours because the PS3's version is too laggy) but I know this is a solid and good game. Maybe someday I will play it on PC !

    @Lotias I have a question for you, can I play Skyrim and enjoy it -strictly lore wise- without having played the previous entries (I only played Oblivion, beat it, did some side quests but I can't really remember anything from the lore) ?

  • Trails of Cold Steel: Made it to Celdic. We're essentially bracers in blazers. :p

    @Browarr Yeah! a lot of the lore will be explained and they have opened up options so you can ask the npcs and they explain! I went in without much knowledge of the world, but I didnt have any problems to pick up what was going on and where the story is heading.

  • @Lotias Okay thanks you, I may give Skyrim a second chance. I got the game at its release, but somehow didn't like it. And it is a shame, since the game has everything I love (exploration, great setting and sense of wonder).
    I remember doing everything wrong with it: I only beat the main quest and only did few side quests. Which is a non-sense for a Bethesda game. I really need to give this game a second try.

    @Browarr I think you owe yourself to do that! one of my closest friend didnt like it either (Even though he loved oblivion), he bought the remaster on its release and just disappeared from the radar for a week haha! I think that you have to dare to explore a bit more rather than just sticking with the main story! I mean the game is SO vast!

  • I just started Life Is Strange, thanks in part to it being featured in our Top 100. I'm not far into it at all, but from what I've played I already know I'm going to enjoy it a lot!

    It's very well written and full of awesome details, like Max's diary which I religiously read from beginning to end as soon as I discovered it. Not sure if the gameplay is ever going to get deep/challenging or if it's mostly a choose-your-own-adventure type like The Walking Dead, but either way I'm looking forward to diving into it more!
