I was so excited when I heard "Way of the Househusband" was getting an anime. Watched all 5 episodes and love the humor and some Judgment/Yakuza nod but man is the animation just horrible. the graphics themselves aren't bad but a lot is not animated at all most of the time and half of those are just moving a camera around a frame. Like I wasn't expecting something Nichijou level of animation but at least have things animated and not be like a frame jumps to another and missing all the frames in-between. [5/10] animation is straight -4

RE: Last game you finished
Playing through this game was such a struggle. I love Uncharted games even if there are some annoyances at times but this game was filled with mostly cast I didn't care for, the dialogue and the script itself were horrendous especially Lara herself was probably the worst protagonist I have ever encountered.
I saw Ruben Langdon was an action cordinator and I can see some DMC in it but in a bad way. The game was like Uncharted times two plus DMC minus good stuff.
I was laughing in disbelief alot on how cringey the whole game was. Also shotgun was such a weak weapon even if upgraded like other weapons. It was either headshot or melee counters that were the best tactic. Also end credits pretty much explains my thoughts on the game itself.
A friend told me the other two are way better and that this game was skippable but I won't be jumping into a sequel any time soon. That is how much I disliked it.
Overcooked piece of a mess with too much salt and spices
RE: Ranking the Resident Evil Games
[ This is a perfect game, this is Resident Evil ( and don't need the original ). The pacing, the atmosphere, the vibes, the cast. Nothing I would change in it. Throw in a very hard mode where item boxes aren't connected and automatically being in hard difficulity and invisible mode for people who have memories everything not to mention an enemy who you have to avoid in a new run since you die if you attack it. I rest my case]
[ How that one bastard gets what they deserve is so graphic]
[2nd run is the only reason why this is lower than the original ( and doesn't replace it like REmake does for 1). Less interactions between main characters and no cause/consequences like in the original. Claire's 2nd run weapon is chef's kiss. Mr. X is what we hoped Nemesis would have been in Remake 3]
[ Nemesis always being in the back of your mind makes this game such an awesome experience and optional decisions elevated it. Also object aiming was cool. Also trilogy is beautiful raising the stakes from mansion to the city to the fall of it]
5: RE Outbreak File #2
[Move while aiming, optional routes in each scenarios, people coming together without being able to chat (antique) except with predetermined commands and working your ways through scenario. This game was so good (except when you got disconnected and do a very hard play alone)
[ I have never played it online since EU didn't get one (truly a game that was ahead of its time) but the story about the whole outbreak was really interesting. Loved expanding the lore]
[ Best combat in the series! That dodge roll is simply magnificent along with things you can unlock. While everything was an improvement to the original (except that one cutscene), it was way too short when 2-3 scenarios people hoped from original wasn't in it (also that iconic line is ruined)]
RE Code: Veronica X
[ I liked the more deep inspection that made my cousin be stuck in the game because of a suitcase but the major issue was you could soft lock yourself from finishing the game at least 2 times because of a bad save with poorly being equipped which makes this one of the hardest in the series]
[ I finished original after REmake and respect what it was at the time it came out]
[I actually enjoyed dropping stuffs and exchanging with your partner. And leech guys too once you found their weakness. In other words this game is good on 2nd playthrough once you know when and where to use key items excluding some bad boss fights]
[ Wesker. Also you can strafe and co-op is fun. A.I. partner was really bad even if you could command them]
[ Really enjoyed the action and some sick movements you can do in this game and A.I. partner isn't killing themselves like in 5. Sadly enemies react poorly, the campaign (4 different ones!!!) was way too long. (Chris/Piers, Sherry/Jake, Leon/Helena, Ada/+random dude) Simmons is the worst and No Hope difficulity added later was unnecessary.]
[ It was cool at the time but also was low stakes with new environment and Island part sucked hard and ramped up action way too high(also Ashley and yet Mikami complained about Rebecca when she at least helped way more and even saved you)]
RE Umbrella Chronicles
[ Replaying scenes with light gun was so cool and I usually don't like playing in 1st person (and why I skipped 7)]
RE Revelations HD remaster
[ Finland HYPE (although we don't have mountains here), for originally being a 3DS game it was pretty good]
RE Revelations 2
[just fell of with no one to co-op with]
RE Darkside Chronicles
[camera/screen movement was really horrible when previous one did it good]
RE: Favorite Foreign Songs
I recommend Janne Da Arc - Wild Fang from X8. It opens with the nod from classic Megaman 2 selection menu and the song is really great and very fitting for the series
RE: Last game you finished
@tearju-engi I disagree on regards to the gameplay, on relation to the combat, it didn't click immediately, but when it did I found the combat to be extremely engaging and entertaining, and on the hardest difficulty it posed a decent challenge.
Ignoring P5R this is my goty for sure so far, and aside from that it is very high up there in my personal list of games, like top 10 of all time.
for me personally it was uninteresting and I didn't change the difficulity because that would mean more grinding (which I will eventually do to plat it). Only time I thought it was challenging was final mission because you get so overwhelmed by enemies in that(think I was at around 17% and healed the terminal once).
I don't hate it but it didn't elevate the game for me any way whatsoever.
PS. Currently playing P5R. Had a break from it late Spring but intend to finish it within a week since I'm on vacation and then jump to Yakuza 7 :)

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim
The gameplay itself isn't anything worth writing about but the writing is amazing. In a way it could have just been solely a visual novel but that isn't Vanillaware way I think. Art is also very nice to look at. Anyway, story starts up slowly and don't let prologue judge how the game will eventually play out because it picks up and have so many twists and nods to pop culture that you would think you are watching 10 seasons of a tv series.
It would have been an easy 10 were it for the gameplay part that I wasn't really into(the tactical battle thingy) but it's not such a big issue since you can change the settings for it whether you want challenge or just plow through and just focus on a story.
It's a GOTY contender for sure and everyone should play it. It's worth your time and the game needs all the support it can get. Also our VN specialist recommends it too.[9/10]
RE: The EZA Forums Top 50 Games of the 2010s!
My thoughts on games part 2:
The beginning is slow but once you get past that point the game picks up and never lets you go. The story, characters, side stuffs and the combination of crazyness makes it a hell of a ride. I got invested so much with it that I was in for the rest of the series no matter what. That's how goot the game is. So many emotions.
I don't know if it's the D-pad but many times I had trouble doing the down attack. The game was otherwise fine. Nothing major but it is a well made game with a nice soundtrack.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
Favorite Uncharted game and also a game from Naughty Dog for me. It has quite a bit of slow paces but it elevated the characters even more. Love globetrotting and enemies not spamming out of all over the place like older games. This was an excellent ending that I wish Indiana Jones had. That one short moment which I won't mention is probably the best moment I have had with their games.
I died a lot in the beginning. The game just throws you in the middle of the combat and you have so much you can do that it was overwhelming. Side missions were a bit repetitive. Combat and story were great and who could not forget how amazing web slinging is. DLC were OK and got better each time. Major gripe. Something happens and it's through DLC and that is not the worst part but I won't spoil it.
A great RPG with a great OST. Still early on Royal but hope to get back to see what many changes it did. I love the characters and designs of them.
The world and how paths are connected to each other is top tier. This game would be one of the greats if only Blight town wasn't such an awful place to go through in the original and half of the bosses straight out sucks. Artorias is still my favorite fight in Souls games. My cousin watching while I dodge constant upward slash was so anime. Those nasty mimes though. Damn them.
God of War
Fighting certain enemies in rage mode was frustrating and was the only time I had issues with combat. Besides that this game was amazing from start to finish. I never got into older games but really like Kratos throughout this game. Hats of for Sony Santa Monica for a great game.
The Last of Us
After the impact in the beginning, this game was a 6 at best throughout most of the game. It was boring and uninteresting and I was almost checked out on the game. Then just before the last quarter or so it picked up the pace and the ending was bold and I was surprised I wasn't spoiled by it by internet. And since I only liked 20-30% of the game, I can't say it's higher than a 7 for me personally. Shout out to Nolan North because I didn't realise it was him and doing a banger job.
I felt the dread. Co-op was a bit hard to do again like other games excluding Demon's and Dark Souls 2. I had a break again and didn't know insight had a big role in it. Also picked the cane which totally didn't fit my style in the end. Took some time but overall enjoyed my time with it even if I'm not too into horror unless there is more action.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
I guess people like changes in the formula. Played 3 hours of it, got the kite, deemed it wasn't for me or worth my time and I was done. I did let my nephews play it.
