[Official] What are you playing?

  • I decided to buy a PS3 with several games including Skate 2, Max Payne 3, 007: Blood Stone and Driver: San Francisco. An infinitely better alternative to playing PS3 games streamed over PS NOW.

  • @jdincinerator 10/10 game selection. have fun!

  • Started playing Recompile. Cool music but the level design is messy so I think I'll just drop it.

  • Playing Twelve Minutes and it's not as fun as I expected. 😕

  • @paulmci27 said in [Official] What are you playing?:

    Yakuza Like a Dragon. 20 hours in playing super casual don't want to get burnt out. Absolutely amazing. I've been put off by the difficulty spike that I've heard is coming. Hope I don't have to grind too much and end up quitting.

    I'm about 35 hours in and pseudo-addicted.

    After the

    party-altering event of Chapter 7, I have been grinding it out with Eri / Dealer job.

    I found a Dealer job class XP boost item from the secret shop so I figured I'd put that on and grind out the Yokohama dungeon. I made it through by putting my whole party in Cyber Armor but I would've gotten mopped otherwise. Came out after fighting the Roomba @ Level 8 Dealer so it was a helpful grind.

    Not sure how the Dungeon works going forward though. Do I go back and it's a new dungeon or the exact same one? I also found a secret Casino in Chinatown which had a new Cards weapon (thank goodness) but I have absolutely no clue where to get the final upgrade materials for the Killer Cards from the Romance Workshop (i.e. Pure Diamond Orb or whatever).

    All this to say, I survived fine this far but I desperately need better weapons for half my party so I really hope the difficulty spike isn't anytime soon.

  • Psychonauts 2
    Only played around 2 hours of it so far, but in those 2 hours I was literally crying. It feels like a crazy dream that Psychonauts 2 is finally a real thing, that there's a new adventure from this funny crazy world. If not for me having to work today I probably would have stayed up all night playing it.

  • @dmcmaster I haven't played it but I can somewhat relate to that feeling. I'm very happy for you!

  • @dmcmaster Nice. I just finished the original Psychonauts for the first time a week ago. It holds up. I'm downloading Psychonauts 2 now and I'm excited to play this game!

  • Got around to Splitgate. This is probably the coolest FPS game I've played in a while. The gunplay is very solid, and the portals just make it even more fun to play. There's like 2 maps that I don't really like, but other than that it's great.

  • Thimbleweed Park (finally)

    Yeah, they really don't make enough of these anymore. I've only played a bit but yeah, adventure game bliss.

  • I'm playing Crimson Skies for the first time. I could never get why some people praise it so much but once I've played it I got it.

    Meanwhile Psychonauts 2 dropped and omg, so far it's superb.

  • No More Heroes 3

  • Started Doom 3. I'm simply blown away by this game. The levels have amazing atmosphere and the gunplay is quite solid. I can't take the Doom title seriously since it's so different than the other ones, but if we're gonna go with that, it's already my favorite Doom game, lol.

  • Just finished Psychonauts 2.
    This is damn near perfect in my book, credits just finished, I'm crying like a baby for getting a sequel to Psychonauts and seeing my name pop up in it.

    I'm gonna need some time to gather my thoughts

  • This post is deleted!

  • @dmcmaster I'm playing it now, it's such an incredible game.

    Are you included in that thing with all the brains? What was your cause of death?

  • @phbz
    I think that was a higher tier because I don't remember getting a email about that.

    That said I'll double check when I get home, was streaming when it dawned on me that the hall of brains was the fig backers and didn't want to broadcast my real name to everyone.

  • Playing a lot of no more heroes 3 . It has way more of that addictive quality than the previous games. Farming for money is also way less bothersome.

  • I've returned to playing Driver: San Francisco just in time for its 10th anniversary and maybe it wasn't such a good idea because it forces me to realise how damn good it was and still very much is and that the crop of games we get these days have nary a shred of the ballsy and strange ideas it had. It's easily the best Driver game but sadly also the most overlooked. Another game I've been playing that's also 10 years old in September and is relatively overlooked is Resistance 3. My Resistance 3 disc on PS3 wouldn't play so I had to experience the game through streaming on PS NOW, but it still entertained in its distinct way and I love the sound of bullets ripping from the Bullseye weapon. I was quite taken aback by some of the technical prowess on display too like crumbling structures that look too good to be on a PS3.

  • More NMH3. I got the rest of the Death Glove Techniques while doing a boss battle.

    Suda does that thing where he does a bait and switch boss fight. Twice, and one right after the other. Black Knight (#8) gets killed by some dude from the future (who is most likely Travis's kid or grand kid). Vanishing Point (#7) gets killed by returning character from 2, Kimmy Howell. Now called Kimmy Love and a pop diva. Her boss battle I find definitely better here, than the 2nd game. Feels more polished and fun to fight her. Shame he had to die, but I guess they wanted to close loose end. I am sure there's going to be a couple of more bait and switch bosses before near the end of the game.

    As far the entire line up of Grasshopper games where melee combat is the focus, I still give the slight edge to Killer Is Dead. NMH3 does make up it for with more variety and activities you can do of course.

    My favorite enemy type are the dudes with the biker helmets and twin katanas. They remind me so much of the Dreamrunners minus the teleport spamming. I love Dark Stepping those guys!

    Now tn to fight Rank #6.
