@tokyoslim Is there Mahjong?
Always up for co-op in anything, especially in Dark Souls 2/3 (PS4), Bloodborne, and MH 3U/4U/Generations/World.

RE: That's News!
I think not really seeing much of MP4 softened the blow for me somewhat, as it never really felt like it was close to completion. I never really had anything tangible to grab ahold of other than the legacy. It definitely seems like Nintendo is committed to making this the best possible Prime game it can be, and I appreciate the honesty and earnestness with which the update was presented. I’m fairly confident it’ll be worth the wait.
But it really sucks to wait.
RE: [Official] What are you playing?
After hearing all the Kiwami 2 hype, I decided to go and buy Yakuza 6. I was initially holding off in order to play the games in a more chronological order, but I figured Kiwami 2 increases the spectacle and might be better to play after. Onomichi has such a cozy vibe, and seems to perfectly balance out the glitz of Kamurocho.
Otherwise, I’ve been chipping away at Hollow Knight. I guess I could challenge the final boss, but I’m trying to work through the DLC first. Also, Into the Breach is a very cool game.
RE: Last game you finished
Been able to get in some quality gaming time, so I finished (and platinumed) both the new God of War and Horizon: Zero Dawn. I’ll echo the common sentiment and just say that God of War is an incredible evolution of the series, and something I’d absolutely recommend to anyone. As for Horizon, I had a great time roaming that world and engaging with the unique combat system. There was a surprising amount of versatility to fights and enemy types, and combined with good characters and story beats, I had a good time throughout the adventure.
Now, just gotta decide whether to play Nier: Automata or Wolfenstein: the New Order. Both are sitting there and both look amazing.
RE: The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2014!
I did enjoy Inquisition much in the way I enjoyed Andromeda. However, it was far from the incredibly high bar set by Bioware’s previous games. Overall, I’m de-hyped on the franchise and on Bioware in general. There just seems to be a lot of missed opportunities here. Maybe the branching possibilities of past entries combined with too big a world overwhelmed the team? Also, Varric wasn’t nearly the show-stealer he was in DA2, and I was disappointed with the implementation of the majority of past game decisions being relegated to war room map shenanigans. I was impressed by several of the zones at the time, and the gameplay seemed a step-up from other entries. However, the more vital aspects that had me replaying the first two games several times just weren’t there in Inquisition. I usually try to stay pretty positive, but I have doubts that they’ll ever recapture the magic I once felt. It was a fun, but ultimately forgettable, jaunt.
@Axel There’s instances where limits make sense in games. But that constant annoyance and micromanagement? I just don’t get why it exists in some games. Unless they’re greedy and sell ya inventory space for real world currency. That really sucks, man. :/
RE: The EZA Community Top 25 Best of 2014!
For as much criticism as I’ve heard levied at Shadow of Mordor, there’s something intrinsically joyful about stalking orcs across that landscape. The nemesis system added more meaning to what could be repetitious encounters. Like many, the microtransactions in Shadow of War turned me away when there were so many other games to play in 2017.
RE: Different gaming styles for different situations
Most definitely, yes. I find that there are several games that, while I love them dearly, I won’t touch unless I have at least 2-3 hours to devote to them alone and uninterrupted. While on the go, I also find that turn-based games hold more allure for me than when I’m on the tv. Having a system that naturally accommodates starting and stopping really shines in those instances. It’s likely why games like Pokemon and Fire Emblem are well suited to those devices.
For the DK series, I’ve only played them on TV, but judging by how much I enjoyed having games like 3D Land as a portable option, I’m sure Tropical Freeze is a perfect game on the go. It’s something where I wouldn’t have to focus on a complex narrative or battle system, so I would be less bothered by distractions.
