RE: EZA Community GOTY Picks
I missed out/ skipped most of the big releases this year, but here's what I have:
5. Overwatch - As someone who loved and played so much Team Fortress 2 back in the day, Overwatch was supposed to be the new TF2 for me. The game's fun, I like the characters (Tracer and Pharah were love at first sight for me, Junkrat is basically Demoman my fave class ), and I love the art-style. I told myself I would play until I had all the skins I wanted, but I played for only 2 weeks or so and fell off. It's definitely the highest quality game I've played this year but that doesn't make it my favorite.
4. Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 - Man, oh man does it feel good when anime games have MONEY. These games have always been visual spectacle. Ninja Storm 2 was the first time I ever experience this series of game and I was super impressed by how perfectly the characters and art-style translate to 3D. I didn't even mention the character animations and how amazing the jutsus look. I was disappointed with Storm 4 at first, because aside from the prologue, the first like half of Story Mode is a slide show featuring stills from the anime. But as you go through the story, you can clearly see where the money went. The quick time events look stellar and I like how the button prompts make sense gameplay wise. I'm not even a Naruto fan, but these games have done a great job of making me care. By the end of Storm 4, I got a little emotional; I felt as if I had been along for this ride all these years. Looking forward to Road To Boruto in February.
3. Guilty Gear Xrd REVELATOR - A fighting game better than SFV comes out, but no one cares (and I like SFV ). I played the first Xrd to death and was greatly anticipating the next installment. I wish fighting games were more popular, because people are neglecting a legitimately good game. The fights are fast and flashy, the characters are unique and varied in playstyle and personality, the character models look fantastic and are another example of 3D anime done right. The game is bright and colorful and has a rockin' soundtrack. CONS THO: Story Mode has no gameplay and Baiken isn't a playable character. The game also doesn't have an English dub this time. I'm fine with that, but it could potentially turn some people away. Please support Arc System Works I want Persona 5 Arena.
2. LET IT DIE - The biggest and bestest surprise of the year for me. When I first saw footage of this game, I was not feeling it at all. It was dark and gross looking; it didn't have that visual flare of something like Killer Is Dead. I downloaded it thinking it wasn't gonna be much and that one session was all I was gonna play. NOPE. The game has its hooks deep in me. I think I have about 20 hours or so invested and I'm only on floor 9. There's so much depth to this game and I really enjoy the little things. I've come to really like the characters. Naomi is such a stereotypical teenaged girl, but that's why I like her. Meijin looks like a jackass, but he gives me sick pro-tips, so I appreciate him. Uncle Death is mah dude and I want a t-shirt of him. I like the in-game- IN-GAME characters, too. Even the shopkeeper; I quote his lines. The combat turned me off at first, but I'm into it now and I love the Goretastic kills. THE SOUNDTRACK THO. I haven't even heard all the songs yet, but it's already greeeeeaaaat. I have a few favorites. Let It Die is already one of my favorite PS4 games. Please give it chance.
1. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 - Strange #1 pick, I know, but who cares? Of this list, XV2 is the only game I actually paid full price for, because I really wanted it. I actually was not paying attention to this game prior to September of this year. I bought Xenoverse 1 in 2015 for $30. I played up to the Cell Saga and soon dropped it. I picked it up again in August 2016 ( this year ), started a new character, and really got into it. When I finished it, I was hungry for more. I contemplated getting all the DLC, but I figured the DLC characters would be in Xenoverse 2, and they are. I don't play DBZ games for the story, I know the story and I know that Xenoverse puts a soft spin on the story, but that's not what I'm here for. I play for the fighting. I play Xenoverse 2 because I want to create my own character, wear the clothes I want, and use the moves I want. I'm very happy I get to see my Saiyan girl using my favorite Dragon Ball moves. Big Bang Attack, Galick Gun, Bomber DX, Burning Attack, Spirit Sword, Tri-Beam, Final Explosion, and Big Bang Kamehameha; it's all there and it looks great. The game also has nice little hidden features such as: Super Saiyans who are charging their super attacks to full power get to warp behind targeted enemies just before firing. The game never tells you that. I could go on, but I've ranted long enough.
Who are your favorite Fighting Game Characters?
Hi, Everybody. I want to know all ya'll's favorite characters in fighting games. Just name the character and tell us where they're from. Maybe even elaborate on why you like them so much. Here are mine:
Crimson Viper( I've always liked her design )
Juri( She's the best )
King of Fighters
Alice( She's super cute )
Terry Bogard( The best Engrish )
Lars( He looks like a try-hard anime character but I still like him )
Sin Kiske( His moveset is too good )
Johnny Sfondi( My favorite sword character )
Baiken( Badass, one-armed, sword-wielding babe )
All of them
RE: Games you really wanted to like, but no matter what, you couldn't/didn't
Man, I really wanted to like Mercenary Kings, but after 2 hours or so, I just didn't want to play it anymore. I love how it looks, but I seriously was not enjoying the gameplay.
I was also disappointed by Crysis 2. It was cool at first, but I got bored of it.
RE: Easy Allies Podcast - Official Discussion Thread
I just don't want to read the YouTube comments for the podcast anymore... so much Ian hate down there.
Other than that, during the GOTY discussion, I would give Best Fighting Game to Guilty Gear Revelator.
RE: The EZA Top 100 Videogames!
CoD4 Modern Warfare - The first CoD I've ever played and put so much time into.
Kingdom Hearts II - I'm happy this made the list. It's a game I claim to be one of my all-time favorites and I think it's the first game I beat as a kid.
Dragon Quest VIII - I have fond memories of watching my sister play this.
Metal Gear Solid 2 and 4 - I wish my 6th-Grade self wasn't too intimidated by these games. I ended up watching full walkthroughs of both of them instead.
Persona 3 - I love this game. Even though it's #84, I'm just super glad it's on here.
Undertale - I felt like such a poser for liking this game's characters and music because I never played it.
Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner - YYYEEEEEEEAAAAHHHH!!!!
Dark Souls III - I will play this eventually.
Overwatch - I haven't played this game in 2 months. I was hoping to get back into it when Ana was released but still have not found the time. Maybe I'll jump back in when Sombra gets added.
RE: Nioh, Horizon, Nier, Persona - Discuss!
I'm definitely getting Persona 5.
But I'm super torn between NeiR and Nioh. I plan on getting both, of course, but If I could only afford one, I just don't know which one to get first.
I also just remembered that P5 comes out in April; so if I have enough money for 2 games in February, then it's all good in the hood.
RE: Favorite game developer
Arc System Works - Their fighting games are definitely my favorite. Guilty Gear, Blazblue, Persona 4 Arena, Arcana Heart, Under Night, their Fist of The North Star game; all are solid. They even made a cool looking Contra-inspired game call Hard Corps Uprising.
Lab Zero - I love Skullgirls and I love Lab Zero's art. I'm really looking forward to Indivisible.
Dimps - They made my favorite Dragon Ball games( Budokai & Xenoverse ), so I'm glad they exist.
I don't actually have definitive favorites as no developer has made me 100% happy with their output. These are just some that I really like and appreciate. I also want to give shoutouts to: Atlus, Insomniac, Respawn, Japan Studio, Vanillaware, Media Molecule, Old Square, Old Capcom, and Old SNK.
RE: The Games that Made you a Gamer
What was your first game?
The first games I ever played were Rayman and Mortal Kombat, but I don't remember what I played them on. MK was the first game I played with my siblings and my sisters were terrified of Baraka.
What games made you a "gamer" and why?
I played plenty of games before it, but Kingdom Hearts 2 was the first game I sat down by myself and played and beat. My sister had a boyfriend at the time who introduced me to Steam but most importantly, Counter Strike. I played a good amount of CS Condition Zero and soon got introduced to one of my favorite games ever, Team Fortress 2. Playing TF2 for countless hours made me interested in looking for other online multiplayer games to get into.
What is your favorite game and why?
Terraria. That game has given me over 200 hours of entertainment and joy. I didn't get into the game when it was released, but when I did start playing it, it had so much content. There was so much for me to explore and discover and I've had tons of fun just spelunking to find loot and amass a collection of weapons, armor, items, and furniture. It's my cozy, feel good game that I come back to every now and then to be happy and get lost in a charming 2D pixel world.
RE: Gravity Rush 2 (PS4)
Uuuuurrrgh I wanna get this game right away; I have the money, but this College Quarter has already gotten me so busy.
It's great to see/read that the game doesn't have a day one patch. I also really appreciate Japan Studio for the games they make. I love Gravity Rush and their other games are so unique and visually interesting; they really appeal to me. I adore Patapon's art style and the little I've seen of Puppeteer looks amaze-balls. I should buy it one day just to have it.
