[Official] What are you playing?

  • @DeweyDTruman Lol, my mom got me an Atari Flashback 5 she found at a garage sale...no idea if it even works, and have never heard of 3/4 of the games on it.

  • @bard91 Probably cause you skipped 2 of the previous games, :p

  • got a amazon gift card for christmas guess whos getting cold steel 2

  • Trails of Cold Steel 2
    Met up with 2 more classmates, beat the 1st shrine (I assume there are more) and am on my way to Garrelia Fortress.

    Superdimesnion Neptune
    Iffy doesn't like the new color of her bike.

    @Minamik I bought the only Master Quarz I can buy so far, I think it starts with M but I forgot if it's Megalith.

    @bard91 said in [Official] What are you playing?:

    (not as much as I wanted to since my PS3 controller is acting up)

    What's yours doing? Mine sometimes just presses down and R2 without me touching those buttons.

    I did too tbh, didn't/doesn't affect my enjoyment of ToCS 1&2 in the slightest though. I just wish they would release the TitS games on PSN for PS3 or 4.

  • @Musou-Tensei something similar, it seems to press random buttons, mostly the circle one, which is really annoying since it keeps taking me out of menus, it is really random how it works though, I played for three straight hours in the afternoon without any problems, but I literally couldn't play in the morning

  • you guys know the ps4 controller works on ps3 right?

  • @FF7Cloud

    obviously I didn't

  • @Musou-Tensei Well, it does effect it actually, you just don't realize it, haha.

  • Finnnalllyy started playing Dark Souls 3 and loving it. I've got a nice little backlog now between steam sales, xmas, and a couple I picked up. Time to get through some 2016 titles

  • Playing Final Fantasy V.

    It's good. If FFIV and FFVI are opera, this is operetta. The job system is good fun, but I think it has some problems despite being thorough. I've never been compelled to switch classes (except for a one-man-vs-boss sequence, in which I switched to a class, one-shot the boss, then switched back after) which is a little disappointing. Classic JRPG party structure (healer, caster, tank, wild-card) still works wonders here. It might have been nice to throw more abstract or oblong battles at the main characters so job composition would actually be something I'd have to consider in order to progress.

    Characters are nicely realized I suppose; there's a lighter touch that doesn't infringe upon the drama too heavily. Square's excellence in staging and minor animation is apparent here too. I've always loved the attention to detail and mannerisms they've put into their characters. Dialogue can only go so far in a visual medium. All that said, the job system, the game's crux, weakens some of this character work. The gulf between characters in and out of battle is so great. I much prefer a character's established personality/look in the narrative to be reflected in their battle abilities.

    I haven't finished it yet, but I'm pretty sure I'll follow through on this one. I feel like I'm about halfway through the game, but despite this, I don't imagine that there's going to be anything that mindblowing in the back half, as much as I'd like to be wrong.

  • Just had the worst fight in all of the Cold Steel games so far against 2 Jaegers, this one really sucked ass and if something like this happens again I might consider ToCS2 worse than ToCS1 tbh. So early in the game, I didn't had such a terrible fight in ToCS1 till much later, and that still wasn't as bad since I only fought one enemy, I'm legit pissed right now.

  • Finished FF XV, Its a beautiful game but very tragic at the same time because it had much more potential to be something truly monumental. I thankful to Tabata to make it happen but way to much was sacrificed in the process.

  • @Musou-Tensei Cold Steel 2 will teach you on multiple occasions that you are a very small fish in a very big pond. The best you can hope to do in fights like that is use Rean's motivate, and then unleash every s-craft that you can for a chance at some bonus AP.

  • I'm playing two at the moment:

    Hitman (2016), Which is really good but lacking in overall missions. I'm currently only on the second location, but I did spend quite a lot of time with Showstopper in order to stretch the game out a bit more.

    Root Letter: I love it, but its a VN with some light adventure elements, so it's all about the story really. Very intriguing so far.

  • just ordered cold steel 2 off amazon used my gift card so i only payed 7 bucks for it money well spent

    Hitman 2016 is easily second best game of this year. first bieng Doom.

    I didnot payed for it until it fully released and all episodes are complete. its only good pure stealth game today.

    on topic: I recently played and beat Deus Ex MD. and im dissapointed. it no where near as good as HR or original and feel like DLC after 5 years.

  • cold steel three is a ps4 exclusive what about my save file?

  • @FF7Cloud Hopefully they do something similar to cross-save, because I know the functionality exists between PS3 and Vita so... maybe? Seems like a game where you'd want to carry over your save files. I'll be diving into the franchise next year, I've heard too many good things to avoid it any longer.

  • @SabotageTheTruth i do have a ps tv so if worst comes to worst ill just transfer my save to that

  • @SabotageTheTruth Welcome to the family, son! :p

    Seriously consider starting with Trails in the Sky though. You'll get way more out of the Cold Steel games if you play those first, and the 3rd one is also coming next year, so you'll be able to play all three of them.
