there's so much shit on Steam
I tried to buy Ni No Kuni 2 this morning but the network was down. I think I'd better wait until the Overwatch event is finished at the end of the month.
I want to play the first one but it's not available on the Playstation
It's written by Monkey Island's Ron Gilbert! Is it as funny though? I have it in my list to play.
it's funny because of all the references to the games of the golden era but the quality of the wit is not like in Monkey Island, no. (or Pink Panther's Passport to Peril for that matter ). I'd wait till there's a discount
I'd love to play them both. Quite odd that they didn't shove out a basic remaster in advance of the sequel - maybe Ghibli closing down has left it in some sort of legal rights hell?
Not that I've got time at the moment. I'm 70 hours in to "Persona 5", with plenty more still to come. I'm absolutely loving it and it is wonderfully Japanese with plenty of eyebrow raising cultural moments. It's definitely not for everyone (it doesn't even truly hand over the reins until 15 hours in!) but if you like your JRPGs, it is an absolute must. It constantly peels back layers and reveals new systems and things to do that are always a delight.
And the graphic design and music are still just as incredible as when I first started it.
that's what I thought, it would make perfect sense. I wonder if the new game makes sense without having played the first?
despite holding a degree in Japanese studies I think Persona 5 is much too Japanese for me
Persona 5 is unapologetic in its Japanese presentation which is what I'm loving about it. I bet you @Diddy teaches in a very similar school...
There have been some complaints in the West about the English translation but i think a lot of that is down to the fact that the formal/informal and upper class/lower class differences are much more difficult to express in English at a linguistic level. I have the same problem, though to a far less extent, when I'm trying to explain the differences between English and German formal forms to a non-German speaker
I didn’t play it but I did watch someone else play Far Cry 5 on YouTube and that ending is...interesting.
Apparently everyone hates it but I must say I
wouldnt mind being trapped in a bunker solely with the fit hipster cult leader.
God of War is wonderful
Charles Manson porn forum now
I'm currently playing a game called Culdcept Revolt that I believe all of THREE people in the WORLD have played, but I'm actually enjoying it a lot. It's very similar to the card game Magic: The Gathering which CONSUMED my life for about two summers.
looks like an expensive hobby. do you have to buy all kinds of bits?
In Magic? Yeah, you have to buy the cards separately or in random decks. It's only expensive if you're after the most sought after cards, I never got into those levels of craziness as I couldn't afford it.
I haven't looked into Magic in DECADES but I imagine some of the rare cards from older editions must cost a fortune these days. I knew someone who had a BLACK LOTUS which back in the day was the most expensive card.
I meant Culdcept it looks like the sort of game where you put a thingey on a thongey and it pops up on screen
I know Magic and the circles that play it are all sorts of crazy collectors, I've seen some of the prices of the rarer ones. sheesh. I only dabbled in Harry Potter cards for a while, that was it...
I downloaded a game called Silverworld, well, it's not so much a game as an "interactive novel", sort of like an expanded Choose Your Own Adventure. it looks very comprehensive so I'll have to wait till I have more time on my hands to piss away
the stories of some of the company's games sound downright loony https://www.choiceofgames.com/category/our-games/
Oh right No, it's just a game, there are no physical cards or anything to buy, apart from some extra maps and DLC. You can buy all the cards in-game with currency you get from winning battles.
I've started playing Mario+Rabbids, but I'm finding it SO HARD Apparently I just have to get into thinking strategically! Rabbid Peach is so utterly mesmering that I have to keep at it to see what she does next
Now playing fallout 4 again.
I take it you like it then? I tried giving it another go (I have completed it once obvs) but it lacks something... don't know what, just does
maybe this is my "everything was better in the old days"
I guess we are getting closer to the grave so we are revisiting unfinished games.
I’m chugging away at the SNES Zelda: A link to the past (on 3DS). It’s quite long and hard
Christ knows how people got through it before the internet
did you see the Fallout 76 reveal on social media, @Indie ? more info Friday
I swear if it's an MMO I'm out
You're not the only one to say that and to be honest I get that.
Just not feeling anything else at the moment.
get skull smashing in God of War
I fear it's an expansion of the building feature. wow we can visit each other's shacks!!
From what I've read plenty of people are worried that it's either a building sim or a fallout shelter sequel.
I'm not here for Sims: The Nuclear Years either
I've just rediscovered some old DS games I had stored away and been revisiting them.
Surprised at how much time I clocked in on Super Mario 64 DS (that title still bothers me). Less surprised at how much time went into Pokemon Soul Silver (probably my favourite remake of the series).
Yoku’s Island Express is an absolute JOY.
Beautiful graphics, lovely soundtrack and quite frankly there aren’t enough Metroidvania action-pinball games.
The main story is fairly brief (or maybe I just lost many hours to it without realising) but there are tons of collectibles to get making up about 50% of the game.
I don't play anything but I watched a Starcraft II gameplay on YouTube the other day.
I bought the sega genesis collection in the PS4 and played Streets of Rage as a throwback to my childhood.
Otherwise, I've become addicted to Heroes of the Storm.
Love Streets of Rage, such a classic.
That being said, I don't think I ever finished the original first game, could never beat the cruise ship stage (or if I did, I'd be low on continues). That was ages ago mind, gotta get back to it some time.
I've made a reservation for Ni no Kuni 2 at the library so I'm goin to give that a go even though I haven't played the first. the stories don't seem to relate anyway
just got Pharaoh on offer on Steam, the Sierra four punch of Caesar-Zeus-Pharaoh-Emperor are some of the best city building games EVAH
There's a lovely rewind feature in this collection which I abused in order to survive.
I have so many big games I want to play, Assasin's Creed (they release too many and I'm always behind), God of War, Ni No Kuni 2 and Persona 5 which I started about a month ago and never got around to playing again.
God of War is brilliant and just wowza graphics. I did the first couple of hours of Ass Creed at a friend's, might borrow it from him as he never continued (he's terrified of snakes, even on screen ). I'm also of mind to convince him to lend me his Switch so I can do Zelda
and then there's Far Cry 5, I've long been wanting to try the Yakuza series, and in a bit we'll have Red Dead Redemption 2...
I AM SO BEHIND
there's a reduced price on Ni no Kuni 2 right now by the way...
I have zero interest in Red Dead, westerns don't do it for me.
