Apologies for replying in a big old lump here, I didn't realise I'd be kept on a short leash because I'm new, but my posts are super limited so it's the best way I can handle it for now I guess.
@El-Shmiablo I've watched a ton of people playing Overcooked and it does look hilarious :P I don't have it myself because of my aforementioned anti-social tendencies, but I'm totally onboard with it in spirit.
@Rock Vampire has been sitting in my Steam library for a long, long time now. I've really got to play it when I'm done with the pile of RPGs I thought it would be a good idea to start all at once. o_o And hey, 15 hours is plenty, when you're done you're done. I used to try beat everything I started but nowadays I take the same approach, and gaming is way more relaxing as a result.
As for Wolfenstein, the new ones are just so different to the older games I can see why you'd miss the style of the past. It's definitely been reinvented in a similar way to modern Doom, which is probably a love it or hate it kind of thing. I'm not really a fan of Doom, but I was pleasantly surprised by the places the story went in The New Colossus, even if I wasn't crazy about the gameplay.
@Chocobop La-Mulana is something I haven't even heard of, but the way you describe how it prepares you for puzzles reminds me of how I felt with The Witness. The whole idea of tough but rewarding gameplay is something I'm a big fan of, so that might be right up my street. ^ . ^ I'd love to hear your thoughts when you reach the end too!
@Hidz So far I've only played Yakuza 3, and I enjoyed that quite a lot. I've been so close to pulling the trigger on both 0 and Kiwami because I want to get fully onboard with the series. It was actually Huber's enthusiasm that got me playing 3 so I understand your motivation there. :P If I'd made this post back when RE7 came out that could well have been the game I led with, I was concerned it would fall flat but I ended up really enjoying it.
@Minamik I've heard of that game, but the only thing I know about it is that it's considered a real hidden gem. Quick question, how does it control? I never get on with motion controls which is why my Wii has never seen a whole lot of use. Stories are kind of what I live for, so you saying you were emotionally floored has really peaked my interest.
@bard91 I approve of your signature. :P Ben's enthusiasm for Trails of Cold steel has had me thinking about trying it at some point, but I'm currently knee deep in Persona 5 myself, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and Ni No Kuni. Why I thought it was a good idea to do these things all at once, I honestly couldn't tell you. - _ -
@JamboHyland95 I adore The World Ends With You! I picked it up because of the Nomura influence and did not regret it, totally getting it again now it's coming to Switch. ^ . ^ The devs have expressed interest in making a sequel a bunch over the years too, so hopefully this re-release does well enough to make that happen.
As for Night in the Woods, I've heard a fair few people say it's one of their favourites of last year. I get the impression it's short too, so I need to squeeze that in somewhere.
Sorry again for the enourmous post everyone, you all gave me some of your time so I wanted to make sure I returned the favour. This won't have to happen when the forum trusts me some, so please bear with me. <3
