Title: Last game you stopped playing + 2 lines review.
Post by: Foobs on April 10, 2011, 01:44:39 am
Tomb Raider Underworld

This game makes me sick. No, not metaphorically sick, as in "is too bad". It truly makes me feel dizzy after playing it for some minutes. Barely got to that temple-thing stage with the giant lizards.

Pokémon white

Single player mode pokemon is still boring as hell if you already played any game of the series. Add weak-sauce starters to that and it becomes a huge meh.

DMK/Tempest: sticky-ing (?) this or not is up to you.

Drakengard (PS2)

Played the first three missions a couple of times. Noticed there were a lot of weapons with several levels each, and each mission was around 1 hour long. I realized I had to spend my 1 year worth my gaming time to get anywhere in the game ... so I just stopped playing.

Actually I did see at least one of the endings, and I heard that before :P
I just started playing it because one night my cousin and I maxed out a buttload of weapons and I noticed the game looked good and the premise of killing hundreds of enemies every single mission was appealing to me. Apparently I just played like 2% of the game and it took me 10 hours, so YEAH

Dante's Inferno
Great game it's almost mindless fun, but I like the disturbing imagery of various parts of hell and some of the fucked up enemies. It is apparently stupidly short so I must be close to the end. Just stopped playing due to work-related stress and fatigue.

Final Fantasy 8 (replay)
This is like the third time I've tried to replay this game since I beat it 2 weeks after it was released. Once again I was unable to finish it(stopped after visiting the destroyed garden). It's still boring as hell and I dislike almost every character in the game after this last partial play through.

Ninja Gaiden 2 :

I've never regretted a game purchase up until I bought this, it's  just flashy effects with very basic mechanics and horrid camera control. Anyone who is interested should just buy Onechanbara : Bikini Samurai Squad instead.

Final Fantasy 13 the game is really cool and as far as i played it the story was nice as well but the bad part was it got boring to me and i got stuck in the game and i still got it i just dont play it that often maybe when ever Final Fantasy 13-2 come out i will play it again just for the story but until then it will probably sit in the dust just like the rest

Vanquish (PS3)

Aside from the downright abysmal story and characters, there's really nothing wrong with the game.  I picked it up because I'm a fan of Platinum Games, but I just don't really like shooters at all.

Fallout: New Vegas

Better than Fallout 3?  Damn straight.  Moddable?  Fuck yes.  Open World?  Of course.  Fun?  Definitely.  I will be returning eventually.  Simply burned out on it after marathoning shortly after purchase and accidentally majorly screwing up my progression through the plot.  Fixed the problem, but the frustration burnt me out.

Final Fantasy VII is either blatanly overrated crap or the best game ever depending on how much you like the cast; it's completely hit or miss. I hate it, not a single likable character.

It got so fucking boring around mission 3 that i cant get myself to play more. I might give it another try later.

Every JRPG game

I try to finish them, but I always end up stopping playing them and try to get back to them after a few months but just lose interest. Most recent example would be Persona 3, and the oldest one would be Chrono Trigger which I've replayed up to 3 times but never gotten to completion and both the Earthbound games. It's either the combat or the filler dungeons or the storylines which turn me off.

On the other hand I've completed every WRPG game I've played (and I've replayed through Vampire The Masquerade : Bloodlines more than 5 times)

DMK/Tempest: sticky-ing (?) this or not is up to you.

Stickied for now as I like the idea, if you don't feel like it fits Tempest feel free to unsticky it.



For myself I stopped dead in Far Cry 2. Near the beginning it was an awesome game, but nearing the end the constant weapon jamming, DRIVING EVERYWHERE, respawning checkpoints and that damn malaria I couldn't bring myself to play another second. Thankfully Crysis 2 was no where near as bad.

Magna Carta (PS2) : beautiful graphics at the time, wonderful design, but a shitty and boring fighting system on PS2, while it was supposed to be great on PC. A bad fighting system in a RPG just kills it ...

Tekken 5 (PS2) : I've tried playing Tekken several times, and while the characters have charisma and the game is overall nice, I just don't like the gameplay. Damn too slow, and it feels too much like a smashing game (but that's because I don't know how to play :P). Sould Calibur, Virtua Fighter and Dead or Alive are just better games than Tekken to me.

Sonic Adventure DX (PC) : it had been a long time I hadn't played Sonic for the Dreamcast, so I bought the PC version (along with other Sonic games). The gameplay, while not so bad, showed huge camera problems that made me stop playing it after passing the 2 first levels.

Was fine at first, but then you soon realize that any character who uses the same weapon has the same moveset. The story/campaign has decent storytelling but the gameplay and something else just felt off... Or maybe its because I just bought Mount & Blade and been playing hours upon hours on it.

The timeframe you're expected to use to get from one side of Fortune City to the other pisses me off to no ends. It can get boring if you aren't creative enough to find new ways to kill zombies, or you don't like putting a Blanka mask on one and socking him in the fucking face with a bat. Stopped on the 4th chapter, will probably pick it up again later.

pretty much every shooter I play. It gets old after 3 or 4 missions. I cant play online so maybe that is why.

I was estatic over the game and was fairly hyped for it, but after going 3 whole chapters of the same'ol chambers and "dungeons" I'd find myself just barely pushing on to the point I've stopped dead. i must confess though the new items have me tempted to pick it up and try to finish it.

Not because I would of hated it, but I picked it up yesterday, put the game in the tray and it just wouldn't load up. Then when I tried ejecting the disc it came out freaking spinning. Found it there was a crack on the disc, a small one, but apparently big enough to cause that much trouble.

FM evolve, lv16 boss battle against cornelius... I gave up after several continues, and seems like I had the wrong setting, and I don't have much money left to make a better set, since I already watched the ending movie on youtube. so I don't plan to continue playing.

I rather replay FM1,2,3 or 4 on emulator than replay this shitty game.

can't fade this shit I'm sorry I've heard its a really great game and all but here's the thing I don't like about it:

all trophies are hidden and from what I get every single action you do or not do determines if you get one or not.

The first hour got me so bored. Playing with your kids and feeding one just got me really extremely bored.

I might pick this game back up but for right now I'm deleting the amount of memory this shit took(4+ gigs)

Tactics Ogre: the Knight of Lodis

"Oh, cool. Another gba version of a well know TRPG series. I wonder if it's kinda lame compared to the original, like Final Fantasy Tactics" I said. Then I started playing it. I was wrong, it was lame compared to the original, it was lame on it own. Gameboy color graphics and stupidly long and slow battles due to poor damage output killed what could be an interesting game.

No More Hereos 2 Desperate Struggle.

Didn't hate it, just got extremely sick of it. I overplayed it so much it's ridiculous. Even though the whole game every time through i complained about how it was no where near as good as the first one. IMO, the first one killed the second one.

The only benefits I think the second one had over the first one was the ability to play with the cat, all the mini-game extras, and the fact you get to use other characters from time to time. I miss the cell phone type calls you get on the first one that have the characters talk through the wii remote though, I also miss driving through town on my boss motorcycle, instead you get to look at it every time you leave the Motel and automatically show up to the spot you've chosen after clicking on it. Real bogus IMO. Anyways, like I said I did enjoy the game, I just miss playing the first one and I can't find it anywhere out here. The only copies I have seen at gamestop are severly damaged, so I might just have to get it from the internet somewhere.

Duke Nukem Forever

Now I was expecting this to not be the most revolutionary game (due to it's long development time) but what I was not expecting was how uninspiring the game would be.

The game just ends up being a generic copypasta FPS CoD ripoff that has you interacting with objects to gain a "Ego" boost, a bit too sensitive controls and generic graphics and music. you can blow through the game easily by only using rpgs and pipebombs cause you'll rarely use any of the other guns in the game. And speaking of guns, you can only carry two in the game. Why? Online sucks too. On my side, I always disconnected from XBL (and no, it's not my connection) and the load times on the 360 are ungodly slow!! There's more but I don't wanna overdo it

Borderlands.

Not a terrible game by any means, but I can't finish this game, I quit it twice and I started back recently with my friends...and I would much rather play other games. Is it bad? Not particularly, but not great either.

Also I stopped playing L.A. Noire.

A great game. Very boring. Repetitive. I love this game, but I can't stand to play it for more than an hour a session. The story-driven gameplay is great, but the actual gameplay is the same shit over and over. It's like Enslaved, actually, anyone play that?

he didn't exactly focus entirely on the graphics, either. what I picked up from Cryonemesis's post was that he just thought that everything about the game was generic. he also stated bad load times.

however, like you, i was referring to cazaki's post. when he said that he played it on a maxed-out PC, which can affect more than just the graphics.

There are also frame rate drops, bugs and all other sorts of fuckery on the 360 that are not present on the PC. Also the PC's online play has been perfect for me. I also said it's good for what it's worth, in that you shouldn't even expect a FPS that will change the market. It plays how it should, I felt that it was a very fun and rewarding game to play through, despite some extremely minor changes from DN3D that people keep criticizing.

Sorry, I probably should've explained it better, but I didn't want to make a wall of text. As I said in my post, I was well aware that this wasn't going to be a game changer. And trust me, I respect your opinion. But when it comes down to it, this game feels below average to me. I have heard that the load times on PC are better and there are less bugs on that version too, but even with a good connection on both versions, you're bound to have some problems. having good graphics and music is a good thing but you also have to have balanced gameplay as well, and I think they fall flat on both parts. Graphics look like something you would see on a PS2 game and gameplay feels like your average everyday FPS shooter. I will agree that it can be rewarding though. People say that this is supposed to be for duke fans old and new, but it hardly does that well. why do have regenerating HP? Why can't you carry more guns ala HL2? In short, I can agree that this game can be fun if you're willing to look past all that, but to me, the game just feels lacking in a few areas.

Sorry bout the long text.

I gave that one a shot due to good things I read online. But I found the controls with weapons extremely frustrating - I tried three weapons, each of them felt really slow and difficult to control. When I want to harvest 5 mushrooms from a tree, it takes like 15 seconds because I have to push the button to reach for each one individually - what the hell? There is also no story to keep me going, is hunting bigger monsters with bigger weapons really all you do in the game?

I dunno, it felt repetitive after two hours.. :(

F.E.A.R. 3  on PS3, which was supposed to be awesome... in the end:

- 2 or 3 creepy moment (for a horror-type game, i find it kind of ridiculous)
- went through the 6 first stages in like 4 hours to only encounter a bunch of possessed humans running towards you (all looking the same), the casual army/special ops guys on your ass, and the monster that appears here and there...
- graphically speaking, very disappointing...
- the action is not even fun compared to a good ol' Modern Warfare
- the multiplayer sucks balls

What? The first God of War the worst? Its on the same level as the most of its sequels.

Grand Theft Auto 1 the worst?

Hell if a GTA can be called bad or the worst of the series its GTA China Town for the DS and GTA 2

I prefer China Town over 1 and 2 on the original PlayStation. Even though China Town was god awful. 1 and 2 were just bad. IIRC, it was all overhead view. It was annoying.

Final Fantasy 12
You can define some very advanced rules on what you want your characters do in combat situations. The game essentially plays itself, you just need to walk...or stand on a respawn spot and your characters level up by themselves. I didn't even need to do anything in boss battles. The characters could heal, resurrect each other, attack, remove status effects, etc automatically, I just had to wait till they won.

Aion
Monsters are not moving around unless you go very close to them, and they don't have elemental weaknesses or resistances, so every battle is the exact same thing. Boring as hell. There are enemy faction players who can PK you in some low level areas. Monsters don't drop items or give exp if they are about 10 level weaker than you, so you can't take advantage of your higher level character to hunt equipment for your low level ones. I was playing Sorcerer, which was supposed to be the AOE magic class, and got my very first AOE spell at lv28. It didn't work (probably bug), and even if it did, it was worthless (low damage and 3 minutes of cooldown). So I stopped playing at lv28. (Note that max level is 55 so 28 is already halfway there.)

Unless you did mad grinding I don't think you are completely factual. Bosses like the Elder Wyrm and some of the later hunts couldn't be beaten that simply. People always talk like FFXII plays itself but really you have to be pretty involved halfway through if you want to make it. Not only that, but gil is scarce so item gambits weren't so valuable, plus you often didn't have enough MP to just cruise along.

SR3, maybe since they open all the cards from the start, after sometime it feels boring... san andreas was way more successful in their humor, story development, and its more serious gangs.

after few days, some luchadores, asian roller skater chicks, and vamps have lost its comical value.

It's possibly the worst one they created. The Single and Multiplayer mode is terrible, the graphics and sounds aren't that good, the AI is braindead, the bosses are useless (because of the AI and the way you kill them), the voice acting is bad, the gameplay is broken for everything and the way the story goes makes no sense to me. Seriously, what the hell was Square Enix thinking?

Oh, and I'm starting to think they misspell the name, instead of making this intentional. After all, it's supposed to be Mind---H---ack. The same characters said it that way.

Raiden Fighters Jet

When I first saw the gameplay vids, that game sounded fun to play but when I did, it's a lot tougher and that game's very strict. It forces you to survive all the levels otherwise you'll never get the ending. For example, if you survive 3 levels without dying and you die at the next, your chances of reaching the higher stages are cut in half. I tried to use the techniques used by other players but to no avail and I have a low survival rate. I prefer playing RF2 than Jet because of no restrictions and I know a lot of the game's secrets such as hidden fairies and micluses.

Tales of Graces F

I don't know how far I am in the game, but it still hasn't managed to make me laugh with anything, skits are boring and characters don't have any sense of humour at all (only two end battles were funny). The story is uninteresting so far too. The worst I've seen is that the majority of characters are unlikeable. Pascal is my favourite so far, since she at least tries to be funny and not serious all the time.

I just got Hubert in my party and I'm bored of this game. Remind me how far I am, please.

This game is fucking garbage.  I don't care how great the writing and voice acting is, that means jack shit if you have horrible controls, framerate that drops, disgusting visuals, ungodly loading times, a million retarded gimmicks that are never explained and glitches.  I hope Tim Schafer gets aids.

No seriously, what ARE you playing it on? An emulated copy on 10 year old computer that occasionally catches fire when it has to render something complex? I've NEVER heard anyone encountering any of those issues (well besides the visuals I guess but you are a bad person if you dislike the visuals >:(), it sounds like the port job was terrible.

Killing Floor

I've been looking forward to trying out this game for a while now, and thanks to a certain generous individual (you know who you are) I was given a 2 day guest pass on Steam. Killing Floor is exactly as I expected it to be: loads of fun. The closest thing I could compare it to is TF2's MvM mode, but much more demanding and unforgiving. Even on Normal difficulty your average match can be quite the challenge, as dying forces you to sit out the wave until it's completed, and should your entire squad be decimated...game over. And should you survive, at the end awaits the final boss who can easily ruin all the effort, should there be not enough teamwork. The weapon selection from what I've seen looks good and a lot of guns are viable, depending on your style and perk choice (you get to pick one at the start of the round, which gives you certain bonuses).

So yeah, Killing Floor is certainly something I'd contemplate purchasing. If you got a bunch of friends, plenty o' time to spare, and love a good challenge, go buy it and shoot sum zombays.

Resident Evil 6
---------------------
I was holding this off until I had more time to invest in it so I guess my body made me come down with the cold to make time. So far numerous improvements have been made to controlling your character, the gameplay is smoother, awesome scenes abound, sweet monster designs, and the action is rather decently designed.

This game is not my definition of Resident Evil 2/10.

Resident Evil 6. The technical problems abound (online lag, annoying cut-scene transitions, building textures flat-out disappearing,etc). The game lacks ANY sort of creepy/or horror factor that you'd expect in a RE game (hell even RE5 had some of that) and the lack of innovation, shitty overcomplicated controls, and camera (probably the worst camera mechanics of any recent RE game) make it a bad action game.

It's a solid Fuck you Capcom/10.

Resident evil stopped being good the second Mikami walked out on Capcom.

fixed.

i decided to play this fucking pile after i said so many bad things about it without even playing the completed game (i did play the demo). bad controls, horrible camera (despite available settings), atrocious combat, lots of framerate issues. i don't even mind the COD similarities but it's not pulling any of that right. it's a bad game. resident evil is dead.

Shinobi on 3DS. I'd give it a 7.5
It's decent overall, but irritating at times. Also the graphics are quite bad - it's a shame, cuz 3DS is capable of much more. My favourite Shinobi game is still a Shinobi on PS2 (where you play as Hotsuma), but this one is pretty decent too.

once I played RE2 years ago, and I stopped the moment I have to push around statues and put jewels on them of which I got after I lighted a fireplace oh and unicorn medallion too, that was a police precinct not a ninja castle, I can understand in Silent hill we have to do illogical thing because the setting is a limbo with supernatural events happening, but RE tried to put zombies as a logical result of science went wrong and then putting this stupid puzzle stuff in the mix, and also why do we have to make herbal stuff to tend wounds in a metropolitan setting, why not just raid an abandoned drugstore nearby to get whatever antidote, bandage, and stuff we need, got damn capcom

I'm sorry that puzzles were too unrealistic for you in a game with a magic virus that turns people into zombies and makes spiders 100 times bigger and can make Terminators.

it is not about realism, but it is about going in the right theme, I won't complain if somehow we have to open a safe box, which combination numbers is saved in the police chief computer, and to open his computer you need to know the user password, that is mentioned in his agenda inside his overcoat pocket hanged in the coat room. that would feel more natural rather than getting medallion and push around objects in the right formation as if we are inside an egyptian burial site

Silent Hill is not real, it is in a world where supernatural events and exist.
I mean what is the different when the game has a bunch of different medicines, let say pain killer and anti inflammation, and you can combine the two into one capsule, instead of a herbal potted plants scattered everywhere, while they have no decoration function, even the pot is ugly, why are they around, why not some medical boxes with said medicines?

Parasite Eve.

No? Not really? RE isn't trying to be sci-fi and hidden passages and medallion collection isn't only the realm of the medieval.

also if it makes you feel better they explain why the police station has all those crazy puzzles, it's because the police chief put them all in there and he is LITERALLY insane.

Fable: The Journey.

Yeah, I'm a moron for playing this game, and my friend is a moron for buying this and playing it too. I should have expected something terrible after playing Fable 3. Let's just get this over with and give the feedback of 1-hour or more of gameplay. Or basically, how it went.

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

So basically, a disaster. I thought they couldn't make it worse than they did in Fable 3. I was wrong. I should have expected this though, after playing the Dragon's Quest Wii game, but at least that game was more exciting than that, even right at the beginning, and it felt more of an RPG than this Fable game. This one was a pain to play in 1 hour. And seriously, an on-rail shooter? Seriously?

You know what we did next? Play Time Crisis 4 with the Ps2 guns. That was a good way to forget about how horrible this game was in just one hour. I have to wonder, how is it possible to do it worse and worse in each release?

Fun stuff but when nobody else plays it over here (those that do have their heads gearing towards GG and studies) or even has access (outside of us), it just sucks.
That and it's slower paced so it turns off even people who play CSEX. Shame because I like the game a lot.

Tag 2 and VF5FS:
Taking a break because alternating from 2D to 3D fucks me up and I need to find a way to get the transition to hurt me a lot less.

Awesome weapons, horror feeling, story (with one-three logic fails), only thing that pissed me off was camera set up, it was really hard sometimes to find yourself (Zero-G zones mostly).

I don't even know why I still play this game; in theory I love it, in practice I simply do not have the willpower to actually beat it. I just don't think I can deal with games that old anymore. =/

Why
Why did my little sister want to play this

This is one of the most boring, annoying and saddening things I've ever played.
It's not old news to people who played it before, but holy shit.

And this is the reason we won't have any Battlefront games?

wwe '13

finished attitude era mode. it was amazing, especially since it wasn't as censored as I thought it would be. my heart was warm <3

then I did a few matches and tried wwe universe for the first time ever (last wwe game i did was 2009, and it sucked crap, hence its last one i played)

and universe is cool but too limited. I thought you had more freedom. I think ill play this some more once i get the time.

Sonic Adventure 2 Battle

After you finish the stories and fiddling with the Chaos, there's really nothing left to do since they gave me the space suits from the beginning.
It's better than most Sonic the Hedgehog games, but for some reason the replay value dropped for me.
Maybe it's just that I played it fully back in the day.

Dead Island

I'm quite disappointed about this game. After some hours playing, it just felt that the only thing I was doing was travel just for completing quests. There's really no reward for random travelling, only the lame collectives. It starts getting really repetitive after a while. Also, it feels like everything is closed except for areas that have collectives or quest related things, which saddens me because that means exploration is quite limited for indoors. And really, I was expecting it more to be about survival, not about grabbing the closest weapon and smashing the nearest zombie that comes close to you.

Yeah, I'm going to stick to to Left4Dead if I want a game that forces me to run and survive, and not smash everything in my way.

+ You can cheat the last boss, Ryder White, without getting damaged.

Imagine this:



                <you>
---- Concrete Barricade ----
        Infected Ryder White



Step 1 - Go to the other side of the Concrete Barricade so that Ryder White won't be able to touch you.
Step 2 - Use any melee weapon.
Step 3 - Beat Ryder White's ass until he dies.

If for instance, Ryder White was able to go to the other side, Repeat Step 1.

1. play it on pc
2. if you think the combat is bad you either don't understand it, or chose a boring build
3. if you didn't get past a certain part in the story yet then it never picks up.
4. a lot of the dlcs make the game a lot more bearable

Yeah, even aside from the PS3 games that have piled up, of which there are many, I got a computer that can handle new games, as well as Wii/GC and DS emulation, after years of having one with a shit processor and no video card, so my backlog is beyond gargantuan. And there's still a handful of PS1/PS2 games I never got to.

I'm going to give Chrono Cross another go because it's been waiting for me to finish it for going on ten years, but after that, I think I'll try Morrowind. :D

Last game i stopped playing was Quake 2.The game is awesome,though its difficult now,since there are a lot of tanks,parasites and chargers around.Lately fliers and some Icarus too,but a shotgun solves the problem.

Stopped playing it because an entrance to the pyramid requires a pass code,which one of the marines has,and i cant find that guy anywhere.

Well, I guess you can say that I've stopped playing Persona 3.

Sure, it's a neat game, and there's some neat characters, but for some reason, I just play for a bit and I just go, "Eh..." and turn it off.

And then I immediately thrust Nocturne in the system and spend almost an hour just trying to fuse demons and then fuck around in the kalpa dungeons. :1

Persona 4 for the PS2

First of all, I didn't really stop playing it, more like I died and didn't have a memory card so i'd have to go through all the shit again. Second of all, this game gets an infinity/10 from me. This game is absolutely amazing. Great graphics, Memorable characters and designs, intense fights and so much more. I like the characters in Persona 4 more than the characters in Persona 2 and 3. They just seem so much funner and cooler, especially Teddie. This is the first game that's ever been able to just bring out my emotions. If somethings funny, i laugh. If somethings sad, I feel some sadness. I actually feel like I'm Yu (The main character). I got pretty sad when I lost to some not-even-a-boss enemy. I died while trying to save Nananko. I don't feel like going through the whole game again, so i give up there. I really wanna see all four endings though. I'm crossing my fingers and praying they put the game on PSN. Persona series seems like it's so unnoticed which makes me sad, cause I really enjoyed 2-4 plus P4 arena.

Again, I highly recommend this game to, well, anyone! Game gets an infinity/10 from me.

You're crazy for attempting this game without saves. You're really crazy.

Also, this game is out for the PSVita with two new social links (Adachi and Marie, who's a new girl and brings a whole dungeon with her), so sorry, but you'll only find the PSVita version in the PSN Store.

Hey, I was really only in it to find out the whole story tbh. Usually whenever I play a sequel to games, i don't really plan on playing their first born game. Games like Uncharted and Persona were a special case. When P4 arena came out, I was so intrigued with the P4 characters, I went outta my way to bug my friend for his PS2 and bought P4 online from Gamestop. When I got the game, I really only wanted to see the story, so I put it on beginner where I get 10 continues. I got as far as Heaven lol, so give me some credit! Plus, I couldn't really wait to get a memory card since I wanted to play the game so bad. And I didn't feel like waiting and finding someone with a memory card cause putting the game down was near impossible for me lol. That's how awesome it was. But I guess you have a right to call me crazy, cause I never expected the game to be as long as it is.

And I saw that Marie chick on the PSN screenshots for P4 golden. I was like "Who this?", but you explained. And damn, she has a whole dungeon? Wow. Soon as I get a PSvita, P4 golden will be the first game I buy.

That would be Xenogears.

I started to play Xenogears back in the day but I never got around to finishing it. (DAMN DISC ONE GOT BROKE) so I shelfed it.
Then when I was on the PSN, I purchased it and started playing it again. Having beat Xenosaga 1, I'd heard this game was very simular.
The combat system as usual is typical RPG fare. But the Mech fights are complete scripted crap. Your skills and fighting abilities have NO influence on your abilities in the Mech. So it all comes down to how much you upgrade and maintain them. One MAJOR gripe I have is. In most RPGs or even some Action games, once a big dramatic plot even happens and you return to base(or beat a boss) you normally get healed up for the next leg of your adventure, right? WELL NOT IN XENOGEARS. That's caused me to die more then once, assuming I was healed after certain events.
All in all, from what I've played so far, it's a pretty great game. just kinda...dated.

Zone of the Enders HD

Getting an overall A ranking in the first game is starting to tick me off.  Can't kill the jellyfish boss without him destroying over 10% of the buildings, never mind the actual rescue mission that requires you to return to the same zone and deal with drones all over the place killing people and blowing stuff up.  I'd continue to the second game, but I prefer to do things in order, thus want the first game 100% finished first.

Funny how overly-simple the rest of the game is.  It's just that first rescue mission in Town 2 and the second one with the remains after the first boss that really drag you down.

You know, after the disaster that was DNF, I honestly didn't see why the game wouldn't suck outside of its hype.

[/opinion]

Essentially, Markpachi, it looks and sounds like Alien (and the musical score is absolutely incredible), but the game just feels like ass it's not even funny.
Many people complain about the lack of tension, which is in fault mostly because of one of the flaws fixed with DNF: you can carry a fuckton of overpowered weapons to kill whatever dumb AI coming at you just standing in front of your crosshair. On consoles, the game looks like shit but luckily I tried it out on PC, and it actually looks pretty fucking nice. Also, ironically barely any xenos.

Speaking of which, multiplayer. Marines still too OP, and player-controlled xenos are diverse in their abilities but so hard to control and so slow to move around with.

Game just feels generic. Game just feels like aaaaaassssss. A big bag of disappointment.

Yep, the first level IMO is freaking great, not the best, but great. You really get into it, they build up decent tension and my first 1 on 1 with an alien ended with me sticking a shotgun down its throat, with me being covered in Acid and unable to regen probably. The next level though....the next level...YOU SHOOT NOTHING BUT BLOODY HUMANS! Not a mix of fights, not a few fights with xenos then humans. Freaking flappin humans and ends as such. I literally got up and went back for my money. Never has a game been so bad, I couldn't finish it even for fucking achievements! With so much better stuff coming out I decided to put the money on other games down the road, but fuck man this game literally killed me inside(as far as gaming goes.) Not even Duke did that because it was some what fun. I'll pick it up again and finish it in 2 months when its sitting at bargin bin price and not a second sooner or amount smaller. Fuck you Gearbox you fucking hacks, no one better believe them about shipping shit off and if that is true fuck them more, finish that shit in house you twits, we waited 6 years make it longer, but make it GOOD.

Yep, all Marines, but the Xeno encounters are really awkward. Its rare to see more then 3 or 4 at a time, when its obvious there should be more, near the end of the first level comes to mind for that specific problem. The A.I. is garbage, really, really garbage. Aliens will flat out run up to you, rather then say, clinging to walls or using vents to their advantage and flank. At best they will move under walkways, which is cool at first, but they just come up a second later right behind you and are really vulnerable during that and if you run past them the A.I. completely ignores you, even if it should still be chasing you a great distance.

Far as story goes it was pretty interesting. I want to see what happened on the planet, why other huamsn are there and tons of other stuff. the easter eggs alone I was telling myself would be worth it, but I couldn't do it. Just couldn't freaking do it. the second level was a long one too, but seeing as characters rarely talked or crackedwise, freaking SOMETHING to say along the way, it got repetitive really fast and the gunplay was far below anything i could of imagined. If you're a big alien fan though, do play it but wait for a big price drop. What its going for right now does not reflect in the effort and testing put into it.

The A.I. is garbage, really, really garbage. Aliens will flat out run up to you, rather then say, clinging to walls or using vents to their advantage and flank. At best they will move under walkways, which is cool at first, but they just come up a second later right behind you and are really vulnerable during that and if you run past them the A.I. completely ignores you, even if it should still be chasing you a great distance.

Far as story goes it was pretty interesting. I want to see what happened on the planet, why other huamsn are there and tons of other stuff. the easter eggs alone I was telling myself would be worth it, but I couldn't do it. Just couldn't freaking do it. the second level was a long one too, but seeing as characters rarely talked or crackedwise, freaking SOMETHING to say along the way, it got repetitive really fast and the gunplay was far below anything i could of imagined. If you're a big alien fan though, do play it but wait for a big price drop. What its going for right now does not reflect in the effort and testing put into it.
Ahh man, it's like DNF all over again. Still gonna buy a copy though but not right now. Any game suggestions?

If I may suggest a quite older game, but Alien Trilogy, a doomesq Alien game where you play as Ripley. I found it pretty fun as a kid and still own my PS1 copy. One of the worse/best parts of it was the fact Aliens or enemies in general didn't make foot steps so if you didn't know a level well you would get freaked the fuck out by a sneaking Xeno, which in a way isn't bad considering what its based off I guess. The death scenes you got depending on what killed you was bretty kool too.

Well the story kinda goes like this
Hey i just met you
And this is crazy
So heres 500 thousand dollars
So go save my fucking daugther....maybe

Yeaaaah,thats it.Youll get 2 million dollars bonus if you bring her back alive.....and for some reason you have a talking hand...
Fixed camera,like in older RE games,monsters respawn every time you leave the fuckin room,you fight the first boss in the first 5 minutes of the game,and he is difficult like hell,i spent all my freakin health potions on that fucker....ANd you dont even get to kill him,he teleports away.
You hit and interact with the same button,so in the middle of the battle,if you are near a shelf,instead of hitting a enemy,he will stare at the fucking shelf.
The english translation looks like its written by Celest,thus having no dots or commas what so ever,and not even spaces between words(!). soitlookslikethisyeaiknowshittyright

All together a crappy game,not worth your attention.One of the worst playstation titles ever.

I can't bring myself to play any more of this.  It's not even bad, it's just so....dull.  The combat is so primitive compared to DMC and the amount of pointless collectibles and doodads really turns me off from playing it.  All this game seems to do is ride the coattails of more fun games.  I'm just bored of it.

Lightning Claws on hands and feet for one set, rocket launcher feet on another set. With the lightning set: Punch, Punch, Punch, Punch, and Kick be sure to interrupt the rapid kicks part of the combo by changing to your other weapon set. Everything in its path will take massive amounts of damage from the rocket cluster bombing. The combat is fun but it's still pretty simple.

Bayonetta is having fun with itself when it does that.  DmC is just insulting the player's intelligence.

DmC's presentation of it was different, though: it was like a 13 year old trying to be edgy yet failing miserably. Bayonetta, on the other hand, did it in such a ridiculously over-the-top way, with tongue planted firmly in cheek, that it was glorious.

It does get more complex than that, especially when you start running into enemies that don't activate Witch Time.
Fair point about the weapons, though. Never really cared for the way it made them missable.

I will grant you the 'take you on a ride' exception. Regardless of what Bayonetta's music is, to me it's completely at odds with the tenseness and action that that kind of gameplay should generate. DMC3's music was wonderful, Bayonetta's is like I've stepped into some bizarre karaoke set. It's so outlandish that it jars and doesn't engage me. If you enjoy it, more power to you, but I can't.

Also, 'halos'... Come on, just, look at them... You can't convince me she isn't Sonic in drag.

Aside from my recent shitty experience with Morrowind, I haven't played any Bethesda games. I'd prefer to get into Elder Scrolls first, because I prefer that genre and setting, but assuming I enjoy Oblivion and/or Skyrim, I'll move on to Fallout after. I'll most likely pass on the earlier ones.

I did almost all my gaming on console for a very long time (Blizzard games and the odd FPS being the exception), and hadn't even really heard of Bethesda until Skyrim hit. I don't really know how that happened. I've got a halfway decent PC now though, so they're definitely in the backlog. :)

I honestly think Kingdoms of Amalur might have been the first WRPG I've played that wasn't an ARPG like Diablo. o.o

Not just in Fallout 3, New Vegas also has jazzy music. I myself think it adds to the ambiance nicely and walking through old-world ruins with happy jazz playing can have a surprisingly chilling effect.

But it's not supposed to be tense. Bayonetta's whole deal is that she is in complete control of the situation and the angels she's fighting are not a real threat to her, and a light and cheery pop song reinforces that.

But of course that changes during boss fights, and the music changes to match, for example:

Now you hear stuff from a heavenly orchestra or something, telling you that shit is about to go down.

Besides, rock music with silly lyrics doesn't really produce that tension either.

Also, 'halos'... Come on, just, look at them... You can't convince me she isn't Sonic in drag.
They're referencing Sonic, just like the rest of the game does for a whole number of Sega franchises. But I would hope you don't see Bayonetta as the guy from Space Harrier in drag!

Basically, the player is trying to live up to the Bayonetta of the cutscenes, and if one is good enough, they'll sync up and the music compliments the steamrolling nature of Bayonetta. But even so, I just don't find it a requirement for all game music to need to he tense all the time.

Heavy guitar isn't particularly tense, though. In fact the music in DMC works pretty similarly to Bayonetta, I think. It's just that one is hard rock and the other is breezy pop, with a few jazzy and orchestral tracks.

Bingo!  Somebody gets it!  Aside from what Snakebyte just said, the fact that Bayonetta is piss easy compared to every DMC (even DmC!) also takes away the feeling of tension and it just feels like some internet guy's really stupid mary sue fanfic.  I mean yeah, Dante does ridiculous shit in cutscenes, but the games themselves are still reputably difficult and the atmosphere goes to enhance that.  Nothing about Bayonetta's atmosphere is attractive to me in the slightest, and the gameplay is only marginally so.  I "get" the game, it's trying to be tongue in cheek and over the top like DMC, but it just fails at it to me.  It's like it has none of the charm whatsoever that DMC had and it's trying desperately to.

All game music, absolutely! All action game music, I disagree. The music should mirror the gameplay. Bayonetta's doesn't suit it at all. And cutscene-driven gameplay is just... *shakes head*

I don't think there would be many players that come from DmC being their first action game would do very well on Normal. Infact compared to Bayonetta, DmC requires a lot less thinking and with the large window for "parrying" attacks leaves even the most lousiest of player crying for something "more" difficult. While Bayonetta is certainly no harder or as easy depding on the level in DMC or as punishing as past Ninja Gaiden titles at their hardest, the game isn't easy. DmC even at its hardest still has very obvious attack patterns with huge windows to counteract built in, without the axe Vergil on Hell and Hell can be beat by parrying back his summoned sword and attacking with rebellion and later simply normal dodge rolling out of the way and stingering. Then they're people who get use to witch time and suddenly thats taken away at one point, whoo boy shit gets interesting there. Don't bring anything about attachments or other weapons in Bayonetta, the axe alone in DmC, even with the patch, is simply overpowered without any upgrades and takes away from every other weapon, where in Bayonetta a lot still relies on the user and the weapon choices.

It does, in fact, mirror the gameplay. It fits Bayonetta's character, her style, and her movements.

Wait, you didn't even play the game because you dislike a few tracks you heard? Seriously?

OK then, I'm gonna try and get back on topic since this doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

I stopped played Metroid: Zero Mission. Well, I mean, I've beaten it a fuckton of times, but I specifically stopped trying to do a 7% run because fuck that shit, even on easy. I can do 15% runs on normal and hard, no problem. But 7% is just, no.

No, 'This is why I can't enjoy a game' is different from 'This is why this game is objectively bad'. I said I dislike its aesthetic, and Jmorph kept trying to push me into thinking it was good. I never said it was a bad game, it's just not for me. I tried playing the demo and couldn't even finish it because of how jarring and strange the music was to me. Haven't you ever had something like that happen to you, where the look or feel of something completely stopped you from being able to like it?

I don't think Bayonetta sucks, from what I've heard it's sub-par but not awful, it's just not a game I can get into at all. I don't think having a discussion about that with Jmorph is a huge argument? I dunno. Maybe it is? I like talking about games with people D:

It's a good thing that Bayonetta does not rap or Snakebyte would have called you guys idiots for liking the game. :P

Rap's fine on it's own! The knuckles rap is just so out of place and just plain bad and does not nothing but repeat game terms over and over again in this grating faux-cool voice while oozing what marketers thought urban was in the late 90s and agh. I turned my sound off when playing those parts.

I'd just like to add that I didn't apply my own label to Bayonetta, it was Kamiya himself that called it the successor to DMC, which is a hell of a standard to try and live up to.  If he hadn't done that AND had the game loaded with a million callbacks and references to far superior games, I think I would have enjoyed it enough to at least play to the end.   Unfortunately I'll never accept Bayonetta as anything more than a poor man's Devil May Cry.  A good game in its own right, but when it goes out of its way to remind me that I could be playing something far better....why bother? 

Last game I got done playing was Million Knights Vermilion.  Now this is one of the clumsiest, most awkward fighters I've ever played.  None of the characters are any fun to use and all of the movesets are bland and lifeless.  Why did I download this?

Blood Drive (360) - Nice concept poorly executed, game physics are f&%1n weird, never found anyone to play with on multiplayer, lack creepy atmosphere, most of the time the flashy effects hurt my eyes and obstructs visibility, sigh, another waste of time

I think Fallout 3 was more of a retro compilation with a few jazzy tunes in it. Not necessarily JAZZ per se, but a lot of more relaxed tunes that were certainly inspired by jazz. I loved "I want to set the World on Fire" by The Ink Spots. That was fucking awesome hearing in the Wasteland as you were using a flamethrower on Broken Steel initiates. Or saw peoples heads explode while using the Vats System.

I bet you it's not as bad as Atari Jaguar's Club Drive. I'm throwing money at the screen here. ;D

And as far as Bayonetta is concerned... I can't say much. I haven't really played it. :ninja:

some time ago(-___-' well like 10 - 14 years) i stopped playing xenogears,i loved the whole idea of the game but there were tooooo long dialog boxes to read ,and there were parts of the game that you could not skip loooong battles(in wich i usually failed horribly) and repeat again and again and ...and i didn`t want more of it, that's also the reason i stopped playing it and also stopped playing rpg`s(only played final fantasy 7 and 8 didn`t finish final fantasy 6)  rpg gets many of your time and RL needs that time more than a game(sadly but true)

Holy shit, the 3DS launch was fucking dire. Steel Diver's at least sort of interesting but Pilotwings gets boring after five minutes of play and the whole game just screams of laziness. At least I got both new at $3 each.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

I REALLY wanted to like this, I really did. The setting is interesting, the characters are likeable, and even the voice acting is top-notch.

But the fact that I have to sever my arms and legs just to have a demon freaking HEAL ME is simply enraging.
This whole concept was handled terribly, and I don't see how someone would think it was a good idea in the first place.

After the game I was playing glitched up on me, I decided to go back and try Bayonetta again.  It didn't take me long to re adjust to it, but I was quickly reminded why I stopped playing in the first place.  Boring combat, frustrating camera, tons of gimmicks to mask PG's inability to make an interesting combat system, AWFUL music and an overall unsatisfying experience.  I think I'm done with Platinum Games for good, they've only made two games that I like and all their stuff has the exact same problems.  : /

I played a lot of games recently,i have no social life though

-Onimusha 3 Demon Siege-
 Motherfuckin Jean Reno with a gun and a Energy whip together with that guy from the house of the flying daggers take on Oda Nobunaga and his army of demons.What more can you ask for?Katy Perry?Fuck Katy Perry
Anyway,the gameplay is like older RE just with swords and energy whips(AND JEAN RENO),the first boss made me eat 3 health herbs,and the game itself is pretty difficult,with the enemies doing a shit ton of damage,and usually ganging up on you.Also you get a cute little fairy to follow you,and i loved the bloody surroundings when you get warped to modern age France.

-Shinobido-
This is a spiritual succesor of the awesome game Tenchu.
This is no game in which you can just go and kill everyone by tapping square,you need to sneak,look for openings,distract enemies,throw money around,collect mushrooms and geckos,kill bears,get turned into a bear,realise that the guy who has been helping you all this time is actually a fuckin talking  cat and unite Japan,then go kill a fuckin Necromancer who stole your memories and killed your clan.
10 out of 10.


-Rogue ops-
Lets take Lara Croft and turn her into a  BLONDE.And copy Tomb Raiders gameplay almost completely.Yea,lets do that


-Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2-
i played a lot of DW games,and Gundam 2 is the only one that made me sweat on easy difficulty.Some missions are waaaaaaaay too difficult.
You have a campaign mode(OR WHATS IT CALLED) which follows the story of the manga,and the Mission mode,which is a What-If universe in which all of the Gundams characters lived in the same Timeline,which leads to Kira and Jerid being enemies etc.
Plus,Elpeo Puru is probably the most kawaii thing i ever seen

-Shadow of the Collossus-
Basically playing a hide and seek game with large dark blooded creatures.
And when you finnaly find one,you have to climb him and cut him.
Rinse and repeat.

Tekken Revolution

As a Tekken Player since the first game and often being an active TTT2 player i had to try out the new free2play Tekken.

The good stuff...slightly better graphics..nice menu song, great netcode.

But the bad stuff overweights that easily..at least for now. The levelsystem makes the game unfair, the most people are spamming the same moves..its easy to defeat them but there is no fun at that. The music is the worst one ever in a Tekken game. The game also has no "soul" and is probably more something for people which are not playing fighting games / Tekken often and are either mashing the buttons or as mentioned try to win through the few same spammed moves.

Let's see how this game and its community will evolve maybe..but for now i can't recommend this to good fighting game / Tekken players yet.

Mortal Kombat (2012)

Just capped off storymode. Whoever designed Shao Kahn as a final boss for this game needs their ass whooped. Everything else was extremely enjoyable, but fucking...super bullshit boss crap.

Lets see, what do we need to do make Shao Kahn unbeatable? Hmm...
Super armor? Check.
Double normal health? Check.
Ridiculous damage? Check.
A moveset that can punish you from anywhere on the screen for doing anything? Check.
That goddamn hammer throw move with stun that he can repeat without you being able to do anything? CHECK.

The game is amazing, Shao Kahn is a douche. That's my thoughts.  :2thumbsup:

How to beat Shao Kahn with Raiden

Step 1: Go to the edge of the screen away from Kahn

Step 2: See if he tries to throw his hammer

Step 3a: If he does not, throw a lightning bolt or EX Lighting Bolt and crouch block as soon as you can after in case he decides to throw a javelin at you in response. Sometimes you might even duck under it without worrying about chip!

Step 3b: If he throws the hammer jump over it and do the jump kick-flying thunder god combo.

Step 4: Repeat

Optional Step: Kombo Shao Kahn's face in when he taunts

This strategy makes victory more likely to achieve.

Mega Man 8

The weapons aren't very useful or unique, the series continues to be repetitive and formulaic (imagine what Mega Man 9001 would be like), and it has some really hard levels just so it will last longer. Play the X, Zero, and ZX games instead (or the simpler MM9 and 10.)

Fighting for One Piece
This game is a one piece of shit.The game even has infinites,some of them achieved just by spamming one button over and over.

Blood + Soukyoku battle Rinbukyoku
Forgive me if i wrote the title wrong.I think it would confuse anyone...thats not japanese
Anyway,this game is a really nice fusion of a Hack and Slasher,quick time events and a semi visual novel
Its completely on Japanese though,so i dont have any idea do the choices you make affect anything,
The beggining made me laugh,when the guy falls out of the window,you have a quick time event,and if you succeed,instead of catching him,you just step back so he wont fall on your head.

Super Dragon Ball Z
THIS GAME.
IS AWESOME.
Now i know from where did the Z2 characters get thos ZWANG backgrounds and such,and where did goku get the explosive shoryuken attack from.
This game is not like Budokai Tenkaichi in which you just fly around,mash buttons,charge,then press one button to destroy the enemy with the ultra super attack.
This game does not have that crap,instead the gameplay is more meele based,it has combos,and hypers must be done by pressing in different buttons,like FBDFDF a+b etc.
The only thing i find weird is that Cell uses a Muai Thai stance

Soul Eater Battle Resonance
The game is actually pretty nice,although the movements of characters look kinda weird and wonky,sometimess too slow,hitboxes sometimes are weird.
Combos are easy to perform,the Soul Resonance thing sometimes slows things down.
The 3 bar hypers can be as well called insta kills,since they take out 90% of health.
Mifune for the win

All games played on PS2 btw.
Some guy brought these japanese games to me,Blood+,Fighting for One Piece,Soul Eater battle Resonance are released in Japan only

Cat Girl Alliance
I bought this thinking its a visual novel like katawa shoujo,turns out its a fuckin eroge,with sex every 13-14 seconds,and with weird conversations,like cat butts,magical lands of Narnia between the girls legs and the almighty pussy power.
The only thing good in the game is its weird characters and the weird humour it has
5/10 i guess


Twisted Metal 3
I loved TM2,and then a friend told me i must play TM3,cause it has better gameplay and realistic car physics.
1st level of the game im standing on a wall,then doing front flips with a fucking tank.
Realistic car physics no,realistic tank physics hell no.The gameplay is more or less the same as every TM.
7/10

Romance of the 3 kingdoms X
It was fun the first 20 minutes or so,but doing the same tasks over and over and my people effing rebelling against me and my effing empire being attacked by Locusts every season i gave up on ever being a Chinese warlord of the 3rd century
4/10

Beatmania 3rd Mix:

So I was at the arcade today and I got depressed seeing that NOBODY was playing kof98. I took it on myself to play some other games I usually don't play. Decided to play some Beatmania. From all the genres of music I couldn't help but I choose J-pop.

Moments later the machine spouting the most confusing 90's music I ever heard. Regardless I played to me hearts content, feeling awesome at all the "Good" and "Great" notifications.

After finishing, the game promptly told me I failed and I should insert another coin. I left the arcade with the feeling that I have been lied to. Fucking Konami.

hotline miami: i dunnoit was fun for about 20 minutes then it got really repetitious and i got bored

HIRE ME GAMEINFORMER

serious sam first and second encounter: okay these games are really cool. i love the enemy designs and the protagonist isn’t an annoying shitbag like duke or lo wang. and i love the ‘fans’ easter egg in first encounter so much. additionally i found out a way to mod the sounds! yea. hit me up if y’all wanna co-op (bob goes first though. unless you can have more than one?)

also why didn’t anyone tell me that the gnaars are basically strawbelly jam?

shadow warrior classic or whatever the hell: i think i found the biggest problem with 3drealms. they have really imaginative map designs, the interactivity with the map props like the training dummy and trash can and whatnot are really neat…but all of that kind of gets dampened when your main character is singing ‘row row row your boat, gentree (see cuz he’s asian!) down the stream! hohoh i think my thingy’s hanging out!’ when he’s riding the boat. it’s not a matter of ‘it’s totally offensive’, it’s just a matter of it feels like i’m playing as a fucking high schooler’s painfully unfunny racist bathroom stall doodle that suddenly became a fps protagonist. but as a game itself? it’s coo’

Another Code: Two Memories
I decided to play the European version of Trace Memory because I heard that it had a better translation than the NA version. I didn't remember much of the first game but I knew that I fucking hated it, but I was willing to give it another chance. So as I'm playing it, I realize that the game is super gimmicky in a really bad way and the dialogue is still really awful. But the point where I gave up was in the graveyard where you push over the huge tombstone and then a ghost kid appears. My memories of the game came flooding back and I blurted out loud "FUUUUUUUCK THIS GAME".

So yeah, not touching that shit again.

IMO the DS game wasn't bad, but the Wii game was horrible. It felt stupidly long because of the constant walking, and the story wasn't interesting at all. In fact, I wondered why it was needed a sequel for that game, it made no sense. It felt like they forced a sequel out of it.

Bunny Must Die: Chelsea and the 7 Devils

Ugh, I need a break. I have a hard time getting used to the controls. I tend to accidentaly run at the worst moment, or completely miss a platform in the most stupid way possible. It's a nice platformer, but beating a boss and dying before reaching the save point was not good for my sanity.

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

I finally bought a new DOA for the first time since DOA Ultimate on the original X-Box. Heistated to buy it last year since i thought there would be an enhanced edition later and well..i was right like so often.

The game is not really bad but.. ..the story mode has only a few fun cutscenes and has the most boring story i have ever seen in a fighting game since i play them..why is this thing hours long?

The additional doa5U characters feel for the most part like clones of other characters with Jacky from Virtua Fighter being the most unique one it seems.

As mentioned, the last DOA i played before was DOA Ultimate around a decade ago and what can i say..DOA5U felt like it is the same game and the characters maybe learned more tricks but the differences are tiny compared with the many changes from game to game i am used to in the Tekken series. This is like Nina from Tekken 6 or TTT2 would play like herself in Tekken 5.

Maybe the whole button layout with its one kick, one punch + grab/guard layout is also just too simple for me and long combos are too easy to pull off. The game felt like a big button masher to me with more focus on the pretty girls than ever.

Online battles were smooth and found easily but the spamming part is even a lot worse than what i am used to the from Tekken, SF and BlazBlue online communities. I also saw just Kasumi's, Ayanes, Jan Lee's.

Going to sell it tomorrow again.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2

It's been months since I last played on the PS3. Sure, I get to play on the arcade, but it gets boring after a while since I just fight the same dudes over and over. I am also fuckin' tired of hearing "Dorya! Dorya! Dorya! Dorya!", I mean really. Try out a fucking different launcher for once.

I tried out Jack-6 + P. Jack tag team, i'm shocked at how much damage they can put out in a single decent combo. It even makes the damage output greater when the stage has walls.

Also, his QCB+2/QCF+1 grab is an excellent combo starter. Once the opponent tries to do an ukemi, quickly input b+4-4 to put the enemy in a bound state. It's still pretty good if the opponent doesn't do an ukemi since they'll just keep on getting stomped on until they roll, and even then they'll be damaged since they'll be combo'd.

I also laughed like a maniac when I did P. Jack's special grab with Jack.

Oh yeah, one last thing. Does P. Jack and Jack have a GREAT combo?

Not a bad game in the least. Not nearly as hard as people made it out to be, so long as you're careful. Problem is, once you do slip up, and you have to start the entire dungeon all over again...? Yeah, I'm too old for that shit now (read: lack the time or patience for such things).

Check some videos in Youtube so you get an idea of what's ahead and/or also check walkthroughs before exploring. It will most likely make you be more prepared about how to deal with things. Then it's a matter of being careful and never take risks, and it should help a little in the game. Only do that if you really can't afford the time, otherwise you're taking some fun in the game.

Brave Default 3DS

After the terrible way to start the game, aka a way too long introduction to even introduce characters that you don't have in the party, one hour later I got sick of it, feeling as it was not fun to play it, as if, the story wasn't going anywhere interesting and the battle system didn't seem interesting at all. And I like RPGs. If somebody has the game and has played further ahead, can they tell me if it gets interesting or does it stay the same, uninteresting at all?

So using my leftover HK dollars from buying JJBA:ASB and all of its DLC, I bought Chrono Cross from the PSN store, and gave it a run.

I had to turn it off half an hour in. This feels nothing like a sequel to Chrono Trigger. It feels like generic anime bullshit on top of a weird-ass combat system. All the charm Chrono Trigger offered in its opening minutes isn't here at all, and I have no connection to any of the characters. I just refuse to believe this tripe is part of the Chrono mythos. The only good thing in this game is the soundtrack, but it's nothing special.

Oh yeah and my kid bro feels disappointed as well, but he's forcing himself to play through in hopes that he gets some sort of resolution.

I was never able to play Chrono Cross. I just heavily dislike everything about it. Heck I don't even like most of the music. That and the fate of the CT characters in this game is quite a downer lol.

Yeah, it's quite depressing when you find out what happened to Crono and the gang. Even Schala's fate was kinda messed up. The problem with CC's characters is that because there are so many of them, it's hard to really become attached to anyone in particular. Except for Kid, probably, but they kinda screw her over too lol. Still, it was a fun ride back in the day (beat it like 7 times, taking different paths), and the OST is among the best in any RPG to date. This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GFGSzlNZBc) one in particlar almost had me tear up the second time it played.

It's also somewhat edgy but in a way that works. You know how XIII tries to take itself too seriously up until XIII-3?
Well, it works well for Reishiki because of the war background, focusing on the consequences rather than the oh-so terrible threats of imminent danger.

Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven (PS2) - (Finished with "time travel" mission)

The biggest flaws are in controls, The vert axis is forced inverted! Also, direct combat is clunky... not to mention your enemy always seems to have the "perfect timing" on attacking first. AND since you were kicked to the start of the level if you died, I can say this is nowhere near as forgiving as recent stealth titles.... Yet, stealth killing feels very rewarding, so I ended up beating it with every playable.

Neverwinter Nights 2

Ah,wow.Where do I start
This game is fuckin bad.
Neverwinter nights 1 was an amazing game that I really liked,so i decided to get 2.
When i got to the character creation screen i was like WHOA,look at all the new Races and Classes.
And then I started the game.
Right off the bat you will fight the strongest enemy in the game,the camera.
The AI of your friends is incredibly dumb and they either rush on ahead and get themselves killed or stay behind and decide to just watch you fight while they scratch their balls and talk about motherfuckin Talos or god knows what.
This game does not allow you to destroy or kill neutral NPCs .
WHICH IS CRAP.
Its like the creators were afraid we might accidentally kill the main quest giver or something and then decided to come and kiss our damn forehead with a NO KILLING rule.
fuck that.Seriously.
Also the game bugged out right in the beggining and decided to not give me ANY starting items and made me go fist against blade.
Also,about the villagers saying "Help me I'm hurt" and stuff,healing them with your magic and potion will not do anything.
Even if you fully healed them with those they will still cry like babies who dropped their candy on the floor.(I wanted to make a Drowning Pool reference here but i couldn't think of anything)
You have to run back to some priest and ask him for a special healing item that heals them but has no effect if you use it on yourself :C

Why?

How?

That and several other glitches, such as destructible objects not being destructible anymore and fucking up a skill point, mean I'll give this a pass. This was easily the best of the series, how did they fuck the port up this bad? >_<

Resident Evil 2(PSX, Dualshock ver.)
To be honest, the game is slower than Silent Hill and it is more difficult.  But I question why I have given up so easily on this game.  While my current amount of handgun ammo is around 30-ish, I'll have to adjust and continue to conserve when necessary.  The back-tracking isn't rough and it has some nice scares.
The campy dialogue and voice acting just adds on more charm.

Obtaining A-rank will be a rough challenge, however.

Post by: DMK on March 28, 2014, 08:36:14 pm
Where are you at roughly and what other weapons have you picked up so far? 30ish isn't all that bad and you could probably do with completely ignoring some battles to help even more.

I've already put out the fire in the helicopter and got King's Plug so far.

Other than having the C.Hand gun and two shotguns (I got the first one from the gun shop owner... but not without some nicks and bites from the zombies.  Second one came from the STARS Room locker.), nothing else.  I think I got a little too gunhappy in a couple of hallways.

I try to run from the zombies in open spaces or "shoot until they fall down.and run." when I can.  But this is only the start of the game.

You'll eventually come across enough ammo to kill nearly everything as long as you use it with common sense. The biggest thing to keep in mind in terms of combat is to fight your battles instead of theirs. Play keep away with zombies, keep dogs in a single file line, use the lickers only being able to notice you when you're close to your advantage, don't even bother with crows etc.

The A rank is really easy to get once you know the game's layout. Remember to save only once (My save point of choice is before the boss you fight before leaving the station), do not use First Aid Sprays (They dock points for some reason but herbs are ok), and clear the game in under 2 and a half hours. Brisk-running the first 3 resident evils was a hobby of mine. I think my best Resident Evil 2 performance was 1 hour and 50ish minutes, 0 saves, 0 Aid Sprays, and no bonus weapons used.
Title: Re: Last game you stopped playing + 2 lines review.
Post by: Saohc on March 29, 2014, 09:37:58 pm
Been a hell of a day.  I got killed at least twice and then everything runs smoothly after that.
I've been neglecting the shotgun a bit too much.  As a result, I have a lot more handgun ammo.  But I'm still sticking to the "shoot until zombie is down and run.".  The zombie dogs/Cerberuses surprised a couple of times today, but they aren't as difficult from a distance. 

Otherwise, I've become enthralled into the storyline and kept playing for longer than I did yesterday.
No longer am I thinking of Resident Evil 2 as a "dud" in my Playstation library. 
Anyways, I'm finished with the police station for now.

Later, I'm going to keep attempting to get another difficult cheat in Goldeneye 64. (Caverns level on 00 Agent, in under 9:30.).

Playstation All Stars Battle Royale

The novelty of playing a Smash Bros-like game with Heihachi, Raiden and Kat from Gravity Rush wore off fast and I honestly could not find myself really enjoying this game at all. At best I felt it wasn't really my thing and at worst I felt like Sony and Superbot shat in my hands with this thing. Online half the time I kept running into Kratoses that outranked me and got up to Level 3s in no time leaving me and everyone else utterly helpless

Pretty much fell in love with Kat though, she's LOVELY. Abe should have been in instead of Isaac though.

Midway Arcade Treasures: Extended Play
-----------------------------------------------------
The mortal kombat's are the most half-assed in emulation as load times are casually dispersed and there's strange sound inaccuracies like the block sound playing instead of the fall sound. However the games including the mortal kombats are still satisfyingly playable and the code to switch the games to their original aspect ratio is a great touch.

Dark Souls

Dat rape from those skeletons were a trip for me.....


I kept the game but its a love hate thing. Just totally unfair enemy difficulty. Ive played a lot of tough tough games but this one is just foul. Im a sucker for dark mid evil games with Giant dragons and demons in it (like the Kings field series on PS1-PS2 etc) so i love the whole entire atmosphere of the game and the music and its great. The games challenge of not letting you re load entirely what you used and lost in battle at the last save pisses me off and the advantages certain weak looking enemies have (like the skeletons) are ridiculous.

For those that never played the game ill explain one situation: I got a bunch of items. saved my game just before i went to take on the boss beast. Normal tactic all of us RPG regs use. I use my items on em. He kicks my ass, i die. "I say ok let me re load and try again from my save point with my goodies ;D". NOPE  o_O. I was left with the speckles of items i had left. The game doesnt let you save traditionally like that. You have to really watch what you use and run from most small battles at times because if you die then thats it. Plus theres a lot times that will happen because the enemies are crazy strong. Its worse when you ventured hella far out. So Its like one of those old one hit kill NES game back in the day if you know what i mean haha

I love it and hate that shit smh haha....

Yeah i played that when it first came out. A friend of mine had it. I didnt have a PS3 at the time but i was a huge fan of Kings field series so it sucked me in immediately from the atmosphere.

At first I was like "How THE FUCK is one supposed to win at this game?" ... but I never let that baby go until I made it my bitch. The secret to success when playing that game was being mentally prepared to fail every step of the way, and just learn from my mistakes. It was kind of an experiment for me, to detach myself from the frustration of losing.

I think that's what I'll do with this one.

LOL yeah exactly man same here. That's why i didn't get rid of those two games yet. I try to put in my mind after a while that its a hard ass game anyway so it doesn't annoy me as much so can concentrate better progressing. i used to always end DR1 game a lot with a lot of survivors. I had like 21 survivors er so before at one time but that meant nothing because i kept screwing up on all the cases to be open and kept getting the poor usual incomplete story ending. last time i stopped playing was at Case 7-1. I got to master saving people but still sucked at getting to all cases so i started taking my time doing case missions right. Its tough saving survivors AND getting to certain missions in time AND beating the Psychos you have to deal with to progress along the real story haha.

Dark souls and that game are one in the same with that kind of challenge where you have to really be careful how you make decisions playing the game. Only thing is Dark Souls gets an evil +1 :devil: For not letting you save what you have used in items even after the save point.

I found myself restarting the game a good 4 times because of that in the beginning.

Yes all those games in that order. And yeah i think Demon souls is still a PS3 exclusive The games graphics are great. About as cool as Skyrims i guess and bio shock how the shine of the textures are at times. The Monsters are huge. mini bosses to super bosses. Titanic bosses. haha im still stuck in this area with this MEGA huge Crow above just sittin there studying me. game is weird man. The enemies are smart as fuck too so dont think youre gonna out run em all the time down and around a corner somewhere and the enemy dont follow you. Some enemies at random dont turn back no matter how big they are and they will stalk you down into the next cave if they feel like it lol Thats another annoying challenge about it. I got violated crazy times like that in those caves

game is cool man. Demon souls was cool but the other ones are the step up in graphics from that. Youll like the graphics

Well imo.

Good atmosphere, generally good (if rather simple) combat, loads of interesting backstory that is not showed in your face at all, very open ended, interesting online component and generally really great character and environment design. The games are not exactly the most polished titles, but the actual substance of the game makes up for that.

Ranging Blades

At first I liked the fact that this game "embraced" clichés, you got the knight, you got the bulky warrior, etc..., two hours latter into the game, you just mash the attack button, even the bosses require nothing more then to simply mash the attack button and ocasionaly dodge their attacks

Demon Gaze

Had Etrian Odyssey expectations, and I was a fool for having them for this game. Allow me to simplify the game for you

Non Boss Gameplay:
- Go to Dungeon.
- Set Chronos for protection for floor damage.
- Find all circles and make them yours.
- Fight an easy boss after half the circles have been taken.
- Once all circles have been taken, beat the boss.

Boss Gameplay:
- Enter with alternate order if boss alters it, so it is corrected with Paladin in front.
- Enter with Force Hit, Dodge.
- Make sure to set a Force Guard, aka protection from opponent cancelling your buffs.
- Set Neptune's insane regeneration skill.
- Set Divine Armor to all party member.
- Kill all the minions the boss spam, until it no longer summons them.
- Kill the boss (this may take longer if the boss regenerates health, which the 4-10 demon bosses).

Repeat this goddman pattern ten times, get sick of it after the 4th one. Seriously, the only thing you can possibly enjoy is the unique events every time you beat a demon boss. The rest of the game is repetitive as hell. Dungeons are too similar, with minor changes. Bosses use similar patterns, with minor changes. Now it's time for final boss, but I'm so little motivated right now that I will probably attempt it next week.

The game has good graphics and I like the Single Player Party RPG Gameplay, the reason I stop playing is because there's no GAME+ mode which you go back to the beginning with your current character level. Instead it's just stop at Hawke's Estate. Although I like the last battle against the Night Commander. They should have made a Game+ Mode.

I've been trying to finish this game for 6 months, but I just can't do it. To its credit, the graphics, shooting mechanics and sound design are amazing.

to me Dragon Age 2 never happened, I refuse to accept its existence as a successor of DA: Origins - Awakening
graphic, story, depth, gameplay, world size, DA2 was horrible compared to Origins, I couldn't stand the idea going to the deep roads for the second time in DA2, boring like hell.

when DA: Origins felt like finely crafted RPG with meticulous storylines that feels like japanese rpg quality, DA2 felt like a bootlegged offline version of some generic free to play online RPG, but can only be played offline.

i liked it (da2), gameplay aside cuz fuck copypaste environments, the narrative and storytelling was dope; having a choice of dialogue directly affect a course of action so linearly threw me off i guess. having it determine your personality for the remainder of the game is cool and that it can be changed is cool as well, but that also requires those changes in course of action. so always choose the top right option unless there's a special bottom left star or top left companion option, bah

Sorry to say that I never played DA-Origins, and... We have different likes in gaming.

no no I didn't mock your choice of game, I played DA2 too in high hope since it was the successor of DA, but I couldn't bring myself to finish it, after I got a mansion, and sorta clear my family name, I quit, repetitiveness was too much to ignore in my case.

if you never played Origins before you played DA2, I can understand that you like how the storytelling and multiple options you can choose from, but that style was already in DA Origins. DA2 was more toward more fluent combat and zoom in and out effect, and animations. imo. 

Comparing the two games:

Origins has a wide map various cities to explore while DA2 you're stuck in somekind of slum island.
I agree with you, there's no really an adventure in DA2. It only focuses to the City of Kirkwall which is also one of the things that made me disappointed.

in Origins, you can dress each of your team mate differently, change their armor, weapon, etc. in DA2 you can only dress your main character. in Origins you can sculpt your character much better than in DA2. DA2 has more seamless team combo than DA origins, DA2 has more/ farther angle for the camera than Origins. But everything else, memorable characters and all, I prefer Origins. and also being in the role of Grey Warden gave me more dutifulness .. to finish the game and kill the Dragon,  it is like being a crow in Game of Thrones.
This seems interesting.

Post by: Nero D. on May 11, 2014, 06:13:18 am
yea, the reason da2 was so limited in that regard is because it had a singular narrative device, the inquisition of varric on the champion of kirkwall (your pc) nothing more, nothing less

everything that happened in game was literally a story being told, which is cool, if limiting, and because of that (among other things) it really seemed more like a gaiden game than anything because of it, but it seems da: inquisition will remedy that

Dynasty Warriors 2 Gundam
I have 0 knowledge of the series I just like the game
So last time I played as Master Asia and became a cyber newtype and was Domons sensei
This time I played as Loran Cehack who seems to be a member of the moon moon race.

Loran likes to talk gibberish that I don't understand at all (As long as I am in the cockpit the white devil is my angel) and loves to yell about peace while killing people,also hates his commander who has some kind of Black History or prophecy or whatever is it called.
Anyway his commander Ghingham is an asshole of sorts and wants to fuck up everyone and follows some crazy warriors code that seems pretty suicidal to me,and also likes to call Loran Laura,which I didnt get at all until I unlocked his alternate costume...a dress.
The leader of the moonrace is also a weird looking chick that likes to make Loran crossdress and go by the name of Laura Rolla.
Also,the finale of his storymode was really awesome since I had to fight Domon and Master Asia to get to Ghingham who,after losing his Turn X Gundam,gets a motherfuckin Sengoku looking Gundam with a tri spear oh my god it was so awesome how do I unlock it
Also I cut Domons gundam in half and told him to go fuck himself....not literally,but in Lorans special little way.
Also I pilot a fucking robot with butterfly wings.
And beams,and laser swords,a large ass tower shield and a spiked ball on chains.
Also for some reason I am being incredibly hated by the 2 Puru sisters,and am also a BFF with Yazan Gable,a guy who doesn't know how to say thanks and just keeps screamin I DONT NEED YO HELP

Dust: An Elysian Tale

One of the games I grabbed from the Summer Sales. The gameplay is fun, but... well, it's just too easy, honestly. The most disappointing thing so far in the game is the parry/reflect option. It's waaaaaaay too easy to time. I mean, you're supposed to be holding the left click or equivalent when an enemy attacks, and the frames in which that parry works last too long. Parrying is supposed to be something involving timing, not holding the button to be sure you don't take damage. Another cheap gameplay mechanic is the Dust Tornado (aerial version mostly), which literally makes fights consist on just flying around the stage, as the cooldown for that attack is too short and you're way too fast for enemies to hit you, which ends up in you being untouched. Of course I avoid doing that, but even without that move the enemies are just too easy to fight, even in the hardest difficulty.

Include the fact that so far the bosses have been a total disappointment, and I got bored of this game. Since I have plenty more games to play from Summer Sales, I will skip this one for the moment and try others.

Crysis 3 (PS3)

It was free on plus, so I figured why not. I found C2 on PC to be pretty serviceable, so I pretty much expected the same here. While it seems like that would have been the case, the horrible framerate just kills it for me. I'm not a framerate snob by any means, and would be perfectly fine with a solid 30FPS even with a few dips here and there. The problem is, however, that this thing feels like it's constantly in the teens. Couple that with parts of the levels that are often slow to load (missing floors, for instance) and you have a game that is pretty much unplayable.

I don't think I've ever seen a game run this bad on a console before. I feel sorry for anyone that has actually spent money on this thing. Maybe I'll grab the PC version at some point.

Seemed like an entertaining game at first: being mean and evil to other teddy bears by killing them or driving them insane.  Fun concept.  Various weapons and envoirnment kills were fun, imaginative and down right funny . . . for the first few minutes.  However, clunky controls, repetitive gameplay and complete snoozefest story made this game fall face first into the ground and spray cotton stuffing blood all over the place.  Not wanting to play this again.

Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment [PSVita]

Ugh, this game loves to test the limits of your patience. I want to know the smart guy who thought that making normal and burst attacks do crap damage was okay. Because of that, the only way to kill an enemy without spending like 15 minutes for each one is to spam skills, and unfortunately you have 300 SP and one skill costs 100 SP, and there's only a few useful ways to recharge it fast since recharge speed is awful (and for what I've checked, the only way to increase the max SP is with skills, and that increase is temporal too). Even the .hack games did a better job in that regard ffs. And I question the sanity on whoever made it possible to be able to counter you from 20 meters of distance for using a potion with your partner with a short range attack (and it's not the only retarded hit range issue I've seen unfortunately).

Yeah, I need a break here.

----------------

Dangan Ronpa 2: Goodbye Despair [PSVita] in the hardest difficulty.

Welp there goes my run for the hardest difficulty. I could still deal with no pointer in the Gambit's Hangman since you could still use the touch screen. But whoever designed this difficulty thought it was smart that at the last part of the PTA, when you have to select the correct combination of words, YOU CAN'T SEE THE DAMN WORDS AT ALL! So yeah, you have to select at random, which means you have a 1/24 chance of getting the correct combination. If you didn't have a short time limit and limited life (as you lose life if you get it wrong and have to repeat the previous part of the PTA as some shield regenerate, which btw are also invisible), and if the order of the letters didn't change in each try, then sure, it would be possible. But since that doesn't happen, and I find it kind of bullshit that you end up going by mere luck just to pass a single moment, there goes my run.

Dead Island: Riptide Special Edition.

I'm fairly new to first person shooters, I was recommended this game by the guy at GameStop, who also convinced me not to buy Killer Is Dead brand new for 10 dollars, i was trying to fill my love for Suda 51 while trying something new at the same time, last time i listen to someone else. Dead island's not terrible, but the environment is somewhat boring to me, the games story doesn't hook me at all, and the way you drive/turn and run really annoy the fuck out of me sometimes. I may continue it later, but i got bored of it rather quick, at first I blamed it on my lack of experience in first person shooters, now I've decided that this game just isn't that great.

CoD World At War

Finished campaign mode. So I'm guessing that this was before CoD turned to shit because it was actually honest fun :) Short, albiet, but fun nonetheless.

South Park: The Stick of Truth

The game is a bit slower than what I would have wanted, but it's actually VERY fun. The gameplay is quite solid, and it involves well timed clicks from your mouse to make moves work properly. It sounds easy, but it can get very frustrating. The jokes and dialogue are funny too IMO, though often very racist; finding Jesus was an interesting experience. I'm about half way through it (I think) and it's kept me entertained all the way so far, and I doubt it will get boring.

Rome: Total War

Sat down to play this for 15 mins, ended up wasting away 6 hours straight. Jesus Christ. It's very engaging and actually makes you think about your strategies; you have to be prepared for anything. Handling cities was a pain in the ass though. Unlike Age of Mythology, the AI in this game is actually smart and interesting. I took over Carthage with about 280 soldiers, and then 5 turns later a Carthage army with 1080 men came and destroyed me. That loss was a real pain in my rump -_-

the "2 Line Review" part being meaningless is only valid for this thread. If you want to vent, go for it.

In the other threads, the purpose of the "2 lines" is to give a quick opinion of how good/bad a game is to encourage others to play it or not without being too specific, revealing plot spoilers, and/or do 500 word essays on the cultural impact a game may or may not have on current generations, etc.

People already do and will continue to write stuff much longer than just two lines, and that's absolutely fine (I myself have certainly done so)!

Stop enforcing? When have mods ever done so? Intentionally stifling interesting conversation is a pretty stupid thing to do, and something that flies in the face of the very purpose of moderators. There's no big need for the status quo to change: some people write short things, and other people write longer things, and conversations happen, and no one gets bent out of shape because entries are too short/long. There hasn't been any problems with that approach.

People that have those kinds of expectations could probably be doing a lot more with their time than worrying about if someone's review goes over an arbitrary amount of lines. What does that even mean anyway? Sentences? Physical lines at a certain resolution?

Of course it would be you, your 18 line reviews with no line breaks are insufferable.

Edit: I stand corrected, you do add line breaks every now and then.
Man, for someone who gets mad at me for bringing up a single instance of him being a grammar/English nazi, you sure aren't doing much to ward off that image.

My linebreaks are put in there to separate themes for each "line" so that my thoughts aren't an unorganized mess. It's pretty common to do in English writing, especially reviews!
Like I said, if it's so meaningless and unimportant, make it official by editing the title of the threads in question.
Because who gives a fuck? Good god, walt, how uneventful can your life be to cause you to be HELLBENT on getting a thread's title changed?

Plus as I already stated earlier, I'm pretty sure the "two lines" bit is more meant to say to write a little something extra that's not the game's title. Sometimes people happen to write a little more extra.

-I just ended it today and started the NEW GAME + with the unlocked items n such. I stopped there so i can give that game a break for much later on full replay. Gotta get revenge on that damn Giant Boss purple glowing creature that was a pain in the ass for me with the new unlocked guns lol

-Great game. Great ending. Great story IMO. Game play was tight and not annoying to me. Only thing that was missing was a swift dodge and roll feature for when enemies that charge or jump at you. Id give the game a 10 but because its missing that feature it gets a 9.5. So If you are a huge fan of Resident evil, the earlier games of silent hill, Dead space and rock star game's old PS2 classic Manhunt game then this is the perfect survival horror game for you! Enemy AI is smart! A decent challenge that keeps you on your toes.

See this is your problem, you see everything in black and white. Real life doesn't work like that! Just because something says it's "2 lines" doesn't mean it's going to be exactly "2 lines."

For example, TV stations usually advertise their programs as being "a half hour," when the reality is closer to 21-22 minutes when you factor in advertisements. In this situation, would it be more advantageous to advertise "half an hour" or "roughly 21-22 minutes?"

"2 lines" in this context does not literally mean "2 lines," but rather "state your opinion of the game."

Last game you stopped playing + brief review.

Megaman X4
These briefs are amazing! Fresh out of the hot dryer these fruit of the loom boxer briefs keep a snug fit where its wanted and loose where its needed. No intricate patterns or design, they kept these briefs simple and easy on the eyes but a quality fit. Controls are good, a slit in the front supplies easy access to the joystick, which is a bit smaller than I'd like it to be. They are also super absorbent, which is required for a gentleman like me, who soils himself at least once a night per week. Pick up a pair at your local Walmart today!

Except for the part where people expect them to be 2 / 4 / whatever lines long as the thread title says.

Like I said, if it's so meaningless and unimportant, make it official by editing the title of the threads in question.
"Two lines" establishes a baseline, something to aim for. Of course, most people go beyond just 2 lines, a few go less, and a few go more, and there has been absolutely no problems with this. It's catchy, it gets the job done, and everyone knows it already. You're pretty much the only person who has a problem with this. It's a complete non-issue. :-\

I'd change it myself, but JMM who has the power to do so in literally seconds has decided to keep it ambiguous and antagonize my request.
Please don't ascribe baseless motivations to me for no reason other than to cast aspersions against my character, thanks.

Slight liquor induced mayhem with friends at 3AM, checkaroo.


Jesus, this game was freaky as fuck. The lighting definitely screams next-gen, and the ambient horror music added a special touch of quality. There were 5 of us, and each of us played alone one after another, while the others wait in the other room, playing some other game like Tekken Tag 2 or BF3.

After an hour or so, with all of us freaked out, we then played as a whole with a walkthrough because there actually is an easter egg to this game. The walkthrough definitely did not kill the feeling of tension, because as we progressed in the game, the happenings in-game became more and more creepy.

I won't really go into full detail, but all that I'll say is that you should definitely try this out. Seeing Kojima, Del Toro, and Norman Reedus' name made us scream like fucking fan girls.

10/10 Happy Halloween!

The Wolf Among Us

So many decisions, such little time. This game was awesome in numerous ways ranging from its atmosphere to the badassery of Bigby. I loved especially how the story built up adding hints and new clues. Unfortunately, however, that all went to shit in the super abrupt ending which leaves the player at a huge cliff hanger. GOD DAMN IT. It was THAT close to being something hugely satisfying to finish.

8/10 because of that annoying ending.

Tekken Tag Tournament HD / Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue

I was just suppose to play for funzies, but me not having all of the trophies for this bothered me a little. Getting a 200+pt. score on Tekken Bowl definitely took a lot of tries, and getting to finish Time Attack in under 6 minutes was no easy task either, but then I picked Wang and just exploited the game's AI ... His b1+2 super just breaks the game. As for Tag 2 Prologue, getting to see all the ending images was the hardest trophy to unlock. mainly because it tested my patience.


Welp, time to move on to Gundam Extreme VS Full Boost.

Metal Gear Solid 2:Substance
These VR Missions are making me start to dislike MGS.  Up until I unlocked Tuxedo Snake, nearly all of the missions took intelligence or strategy to get the top high score (or if I was in doubt, I consulted ChildOfAsuka's top score FAQS).  But the majority of Tuxedo Snake's missions required speed or some luck.  I only got a top high score on Variety Level 1 because of luck (and ammo conversion.).

But now I've got more hell coming my way in the form of MGS1 Snake.  No grenade launcher for the grenade weapon missions and probably a whole lot worse.  I had to take a short break tonight because the last three PSG-1 missions pissed me off. 
Luckily, I only have Pliskin's final Stinger missile mission and Tuxedo Snake's final no weapon mission to revisit in order to get the top scores (and change their names from yellow to orange) on.

MGS1 Snake's missions will probably make me go insane

I was going to start my absence/dedicating internet usage to watching anime today, but then I saw these responses
Have you been into MGS long?
Since I got a PS2 and played MGS2 in 2009.  I never got back into the series until I finally came to MGS4 and completed the last of it. 
But I'm not calling it quits. 
Goldeneye 64 was fairly difficult to 100%, especially with the Aztec level on 00 Agent.  While I came to know that level like the back of my hand, I would sometimes forget to open the exhaust bay before I went after Jaws or I would be extremely close to beating it and got killed by a laser shot coming from a distance.  (Jaws is is easily beaten, due to the "enemy can't do anything at close range" problem.  But then you have to deal with endless laser totting guards while you backtrack all the way to the bulletproof glass room with the hard drive.)
Don't get me started on the invincibilty cheat, because that took me a few weeks to get.  Ditto with the Caverns time trial on 00 Agent and the blue-capped bullet sponge guards.  But I persevered, figured out strategies, and even watched a few videos. 

MGS1 Snake's grenade missions will just require some thinking and luck.  All of the other weapon missions will be monotony.  If necessary, at least ChildofAsuka covered the other weapon missions before he ragequited.  A pity that he doesn't cover the the final two hold-up missions though.

Provided nothing happens to the save data from this game:

I feel like I have almost no room for exploration since the game has these stupid time constraints and objective based gameplay, so even if you ignore the missions and start fooling around you are going to fail because you have fixed time to accomplish objectives :(

The only highlit is the battle system, which is really fun.

Earthbound/Mother 2 (SNES/Wii U Virtual Console)
My knowledge of RPG's I've played is pretty limited to the Pokemon series, and I needed something to get me out of that comfort zone, and this game does the trick pretty well with its quirkiness and how easy it is to farm for experience (because when fighting low level enemies, it doesn't engage the battle sequence and you just get the EXP).

Currently I am in Twoson, about to get the Pencil Eraser from the Apple Kid, I remember stopping right next to two Evil Ramblin' Mushrooms while being mushroom'd.

This is my first time doing a '2 Lines Review' and I'm still not 100% sure as to what that means so I just did two sentences.

Borderlands 2 (PS Vita port)

As much as I love the idea of porting one of the best games of 2012 to a portable gaming system, I was really disappointed with the outcome. I mean, it's still pretty fun, but the control scheme is anything but. Having the melee, grenades, and whatnot mapped to the touchpads is just plain awkward. Also, compared to the PC and console versions, the graphics and framerate are kinda bleh.

Then again, it's the only Vita game I have at this point (not to mention the only version of Borderlands 2 I have), so I may just have to take it with a grain of salt until I can score a better version of it.

I figured that since you would need to do multiple playthroughs anyway none of the linearity would matter and that you should see the timer as some other way of saying "Get ready for the next loop, you're gonna be destroying shit."

-Demon's Souls-

This game was just plain bad. If I had played this first instead of DaS1, I would never have wanted to see this series continue. Playing through the game (without being a magic user) is a frustrating chore. Level design ranges from being kind of fun to being ungodly frustrating. Hell, there's an entire world dedicated to beating mazes. Mazes fucking suck. Not to mention that some design choices (dudes that filter out of cells that can't be closed and just stand around you making your life suck) are just flat-out spiteful towards the player. "Ha ha you WANT to be a good guy? Well FUCK YOU TOO BAD BE AN ASSHOLE."

TLDR: This is a bad game for bad people.

Pokemon: Omega Ruby

I had bought this game because I wanted to see what they did with Groudon. Primal Groudon is really awesome. Seriously, as much as I hate the third generation, the legendaries are awesome. It's most of the others that give me that feeling of "meh." Anyways, I had bought and completed the Pokemon Y game before this, so I knew what to expect in terms of graphics, but I have to say, some of the areas like Meteor Falls and the Seabed were just stunning to me. Sootopolis has this really nice reflection in the still water. Graphically, this game is very pleasing. The story is as "meh" as every other Pokemon game with the exception of the second story. After beating the elite four, you find out that the world is coming to an end from a giant meteor. They fleshed out the character Zinnia well, unlike May who's too happy for her own good. This was really the only point in the game where I read all of the text. I really wanted to know more about her.

So, this game uses the standard Pokemon formula, but there are some subtle changes that I really enjoyed. You can detect Pokemon in the grass which are stronger or have a special ability not usually obtained at that level. Remember all those random battles in the caves and water areas? Well, they're still there, but seemed way less frequent. You can detect Pokemon in the water too by slowly following their silhouette and making contact with them, like in the grass, but they move positions. I found it interesting that they made Sharpedo swim faster, so there's incentive there. Also, you see his full model too!

To sum up, I really enjoyed this game for all it's worth and am still trying to catch 'em all. I killed Deoxys though. D: I'd get this game if you're an avid fan of Pokemon, want to see Pokemon in 3D and/or liked the original Ruby and Sapphire.
Overall Rating: 9/10.

Metal Gear Solid (PSX):
1) Since MGS2's new gameplay features (shooting in FPV, etc.) have been so ingrained in my head, that I've gotten some alerts that shouldn't have happened in the first place.  It's also kind of easy to accidently trigger an alert when you just want to snap a guard's neck.

2) Why did I decide to play on Hard difficulty, especially when I haven't played the game in 2-3 years? ;_;

3)Button-mashing skills failed me with the Ocelot torture sequence.  Guess it's time for an exploit.


Now irrelevant.  With patience and smart thinking, the majority of the game isn't bad on Hard difficulty.
Except the Vulcan Raven battle.  It is a nightmare without the benefit of the radar.
However, I now know a good strategy for taking down Metal Gear Rex in future playthroughs.

Kid Icarus (3DS Version)
Loving Kid Icarus: Uprising and getting the game for free with it, I decided to try and beat the original.

Good lord, the first levels are a pain, because of how "underleveled" you are, and nearly any mistakes you make, which include getting hit, and falling will probably get you furious. But, after playing and learning where to go and what to do, they aren't as bad as they seem.

But getting through the other parts aren't as bad as long as you get the necessary power ups to help you out, and the levels do change which is good. After quite a bit of grinding, I felt quite powerful and felt I could take on the world (but I still made mistakes, so... yeah.) Through it all, though, I'd call it a classic NES game.

Titan Quest

The game is very solid and has a nice system. BUT, it is horridly boring and is void of any sense of jocularity whether it be in the writing, the art, or the gameplay. I understand that the main concept was meant to be strictly towards ancient Greek culture, but I honestly found it rather dull. It was initially appealing, but grew increasingly boring as I spent more time playing it. I think I will stick to Torchlight for now, and perhaps Pillars of Eternity when I find some free time in the evident future.

Hatred

For a game seeped with controversy how does it hold up to when actually played?
I just got done playing with the first level where go wild on the neighborhood, crashing a gas station and eventually a police station. The controls feel pretty good for both keyboard and controller as while playing with both found no real input lag or jerkiness. Game runs fine on my computer with lowest settings I hope the devs optimize the game better in the future update because right now while it runs fine when multiple explosions happen at once the game tends to lag for me. I actually look forward to playing this game more it's so stupidly edgy that it has charm and while the game does get repetitive at times it's overall pretty solid for an indie game.

Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars (3DS)

I only checked it out from the library I frequently visit because I apparently hate myself enough to do so. It was only after I witnessed the act of what this game refers to as "classmating" that I decided to plug out of this animu-tinged hellscape. Never got to put my newly created Star Child to use, and I doubt I ever will. I would much rather cut my leg open and jam a rusted iron rod into it (a la Tetsuo: The Iron Man) than go through another second of that torment.

What the fuck happened to the difficulty curve between games and between the fucking NA PS2 and HD versions holy fucking shit! I got through ZOE1 fairly well even if it sonly an hour long and ZOE1 on Normal is easy enough to begin with.

So I started ZOE2 on Normal and it feels more like I fucking picked Very Hard by mistake because the enemies bounce me everywhere and I take a lot of damage, I died rather pathetically to the first boss and Nephtis was a HUGE pain in the ass to even get past. Even after that I died alot and found I pretty much had to hang back and spam the dashing homing blast thing and spring Geysers everywhere, and if I even dared to try to fight up close with Jehuty's sword I'd get fucking hitstunned more badly than when I play Asbel in Tales of Graces not to mention being slammed halfway across the room considering that shit never happened in ZOE1

I finally threw the controller down when I got to Vic Viper (Yes, THAT Vic Viper and YES, he's mandatory and YES, he's piloted by the protagonist of ZOE1) who's basically a serious fucking pain in the arse who sprinkles projectiles everywhere as well as those ripple ring laser things that you ever take no matter what or get lucky and avoid by being in the middle of the rings, while you have to once again spam the dash homing laser blast thing to even do noticeable damage, and the only way to properly hurt him is when he goes into mech mode which is when he feels like it and he'll bring out the Shields when he's low on health. And even then he blockwhores like an early Zero-Sennin character and you constantly clash sword attacks with him so you can't even do that and good luck even doing one Burst attack on him. I still haven;te beaten him. I've heard he's far easier on the original North American PS2 version and he was made harder for the Japanese, PAL and HD versions because you know, he's fucking Vic Viper but this just makes the game a massive pain in the arse.

Which is sad because I loved the story of ZOE1 and ZOE2 has a decent story for itself as well and Dingo's pretty rad (And you know, a fucking Hideo Kojima game) but if I have to suffer through the HD version's broken difficulty bullshit then I don't have the patience to care. I suppose if I take time to get good at it or just set the game to Easy I could care but you can't get New Game Plus on Easy so what's the point?

Ranger-X (Genesis)
Well, I managed to beat the cave stage that so pestered me at a young age only to realize that it really wasn't all that hard. Hell, I even made it up to the final boss but ended up having that ugly mofo hand my ass right back to me (and on my last continue, too. smh). It's probably my fault for not using that super laser weapon thingy I snagged from the skyscraper stage. Anyways, it's great 2D robot run-n-gun that seriously deserves more love.

Elder Scrolls Online:
I don't recommend anyone buying it for console.
First of all the game is unplayable.
The game gains loads of glitches every time a update is released. Which i can understand but they don't fix them.
People like myself constantly getting disconnected from the game within 5-10 minutes, even when you have a decent connection.
The support team no longer replies to anyone who complains about the servers being shit in the forums.
DLC was just released to the game before bugs, glitches, and servers were fixed.
The game is 4 months old on console and the servers are still shit ... How do you start a server maintenance every week or other week and the servers are still shit? 
Did i mention the servers are shit -_-
R.I.P ESO I want my fucking refund.

Huh.  Granted I'm only level 10 or so, I've been off for a bit with other things, but I don't think I've ever been disconnected from Elder Scrolls Online or ran into anything out of the ordinary per Elder Scrolls minor glitches.  What exactly have you been running into, if you don't mind my asking?  And I've been on the One, maybe it's a PS4 thing?

My main fault with the game is the underdeveloped looting system.  I've gotten so used to taking everything every enemy holds then storing it all in a cabinet in some random house that can hold the entire universe in previous entries, now you just get an occasional dagger from a boss here and there.

I play on XB1 as well but my issue is me not being able to play longer than 5-10 minutes.
I can login to the game but i randomly get disconnected within that time frame that i just mentioned from ESO server.
I don't have that issue when i play Warframe, Neverwinter, World of Tanks or even GTA Online. I have access to Fable Legends closed beta and i don't get disconnected when in a group.
I've tried installing the game again and restarting modem that didn't work.
I've tried the support service once they gave me two links to Microsoft which in my opinion they're pretty much blaming them and they recommended opening my ports which i did and i still have the same issue.
After the DLC/Patch they just released more people are having connection issues.
The game is on its way to dying soon if the servers aren't fix and i have no sad feelings if it does just regrets that i bought the game.
You're just one of the few who doesn't have connection issues with the server @Long John Killer

Undertale

It's a shame; I really wanted to enjoy this game. But every time it gives me things like the black-and-blue marsh with the ambient music, it decides to try to be kooky and with-the-times. I can't get into your game when you keep telling me you're a game. Also, the humor gets grating and the combat system really isn't all that fun. The music is nice at least, but this will still end up feeling like a product of it's time.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Surprisingly, I just couldn't get into this game, and I really wanted to. Everything feels like a side mission. Snake is practically mute. Fucking mountains everywhere, and they drop you 10 miles from the target. Couple those with the FOB nonsense, and I just sent it back to Amazon for some credit. I started passively watching a letsplay to see if it gets better later on, and quite a few hours later, nope.

I also hear that the ending is pretty bad too.

this is pretty much my exact opinion of it

the good thing is, it got me to play the game it desperately wants to be a nerdy internet version of, Earthbound, and lemme tell ya i'm seeing why it has the reputation it has

i'm not very far into the game (i just got the key to the entertainer's shack) but all of the atmosphere is really well done, a lot of the jokes are pretty great, like the game designer possessing a dog to tell the player about how some game mechanics work ('i guess it's back to being a normal dog now, woof...') and even though the gameplay is fairly basic it's still pretty fun and i'm hooked as to where the story goes. i mean, i know thanks to the internet where it ultimately ends up, but how the hell does it reach that point? i guess all i can do is go on the journey with the characters Melv, Janis, Grunk and Dooku and see where they go

edit cuz this topic doesn't see a lot of activity: i started playing Castlevania Aria of Sorrow due to a friend suggesting it

they were right to suggest it because i love how you can get different sets of powers and try figuring out how to use combinations most effectively

Arcana Heart 3 Love Max

Beat Mei-Fang's arcade. Game feels okay but some bright spark decided to make tne netplay region locked so I never get a game in because no one in Europe plays this meaning the longevity just got fucked up the ass. I look it up and Arc System Works helped with it, so that should have been a warning sign for the fuckup that was European Xrd

At least UNIB doesn't have that region-locked online crap.

Sword Art Online: Lost Song

I managed to get that Search skill to level 1000, so with this I'm done with the game. Was the most fun I had with it raising that skill, since I was watching videos while doing so.

Now seriously, it's a boring game, making the first game be even better than this one was. At least Hollow Fragment story from the Hollow side was interesting, and while it was plain unfair in a lot of situations (specially if you include the fact that you couldn't even let the AI partners die), at least it was difficult so it forced me to get better. This is completely removed in Lost Song. Story is sleep inducing, game is way too easy and the only feature that I felt it should be worth playing, the flying part, was not really that much appealing once I tried it. So yeah, I'm done with it. Not going to even bother completing it, as I would be forcing myself to do so.

Honestly, this is what happens when you watch somebody playing the game. It's not as fun when you're the one playing it.

Super Smash Bros 3ds/Wiiu

I wanted to like this game but the more I play it the worse it gets for me. I'll start with the fact it's on the 3DS, the 3DS is too underpowered for this kind of game it loads like shit on my 3DSXL when i first start it up, assist trophies are 30fps, and we lost the Ice Climbers over it; and all for what almost everybody I know dropped the 3DS version for the Wiiu one so I'm stuck playing for glory with Brazilians wow totally worth it! My next complaint is how hand holding this game can be, "oh no we can't show people being better than you here we'll only show how many people you are better than", this also applies to nerfs  to characters "Oh no I can't beat Diddy I'm gonna not try to figure out how to beat him I'm gonna complain like a manchild until I get my way". My next point is single player content, there isn't fucking any, no subspace emissary because fuck you. DLC is what i hate next about it I don't like DLC period, I mean if you wanna buy it it's your money but if people want to stay competitive they basically have to get at least the stages to be able to keep up. Another point is it's boring to watch smash 4 at evo was a snooze fest I hope it doesn't get on center stage at evo next year and never will again I can understand that it's probably more fun to play than watch but it's something to consider. Next is the rage mechanic I hate people being rewarded for being hit it's stupid. Finally is the clones, I mean you can have customs so why not like give Mario Doc's moves as alt, I mean Palutania as 4000 custom moves i guess to make up for how her regular moves are shit (which is a good thing i hate looking at her stupid tits.); for Lucina she's just Marth for shitters I mean like the best Lucina player I saw was some disabled guy, really says a lot about Lucina players, and finally there's Dark Pit the only ever reasoning for his inclusion I've ever heard is "he made people on the internet mad so I had a lol teehee" and that argument is fucking stupid and you're a dumb-ass.

NOTE if you enjoy the game i'm glad you do I'm not trying to convince you to hate it.

I wrote this because the direct is coming out later today and everyone i know irl thinks smash 4 is some gods gift to smash.

Most of the games I wanna put here are ones I'd list from Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection I dropped pretty damn fast for aging badly or just being shit in general. BUUUUUT

Golden Axe
Yes this game has a legacy and a place in history but it hasn't aged well at all. The first game is clunky as shit with barely any special attacks aside from magic, running feels awkward as does some of the platforming and sometimes you can get sandwiched between enemies and can't do shit about it until you die and respawn. Oh and the beasts you can ride mostly feel useless and shitty. And all in all the game becomes incredibly repetitive very fast

Golden Axe 2 is literally more like an expansion pack to GA 1. REUSED ASSETS AND SHIT EVERYWHERE IN THIS BITCH. Played up until I got the trophy and left because it was still crap.

Golden Axe 3 is marginally better since it actually has character specials and feels a bit quicker but not really a big improvement.

All three of these games are on the same disc as motherfucking Streets of Rage 2. Don't bother with them except for trophies, just play SOR2. And sonic 2. And Phantasy Star 4. And Story of Thor.

You are still not even bringing a counter argument, all you are trying to do is knock down my character by using insults such as "childish" and "salty". You could've at least countered my weaker points like how smash 4 being boring to watch is personal preference. On the Diddy subject one of the reasons he's still considered good is because Zero who's better than almost everybody else at the game atm duos him with Shiek, and whats stopping the meta from changing what if Diddy wasn't even that good when the game first launched but the meta wasn't given enough time to adapt to him but we will never know now. Listen I don't think your enjoyment of the game should be damaged because I personally don't enjoy it; but they way you are posting is trying to make me look stupid for not agreeing with your opinion, if you have a problem with me not enjoying the game enough that instead of placing counter-arguments to destroy my review that you result to just trying to make me look stupid is really dumb.

I 100% Sonic 3D Blast, the Sega Saturn version on PC... I'm not ashamed of it, the music was Lord-Like! Richard Jacques 4 Life!

BACK ON TOPIC
Freedom Planet
I went about two stages into the main story mode and stopped.
Then started again in Classic mode, that removes the "plot" and "voice acting", I got to stage 14 or so and just so bored now... It was neat to play a platformer like this again, but the gameplay's not that fun to me. I think it worked for Sonic because the stages were fast paced constantly.. and because it was the 90s.

Maybe I'm just getting old.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2
I've been practicing this new combo concept that I had with Jack-6. You can start off the combo with any ultra-high launching launcher, or Jack-6's ff+2.


ff 2 > ff > uf 1


Spent, like, 40+ mins. on that short string, and I've only been able to link them 60% of the time. It links, but it's really hard to pull off. I honestly feel that the extra effort just isn't worth it, but I'm getting sick of the same u 1+2(x2) insert after said high-launching launcher. I just want something new for my mains. I've also tried doing Kazuya's Mist Step + Electric combo filler after bound, but fuck that. It's amazing how people make it look so easy.


Demon's Souls
Got my character to about 150+ soul level, and now the invaders are becoming infrequent. I've also gotten almost all of the valuable weapons, except for the Dragon Bone Smasher(?), but it's really hard for me to make the World Tendency for that world Pure White, due to my progress. I think I'm now ready to touch Dark Souls w/ DLC.

Also, God's Rage + Ring of Miracle Sharpness(?) is the fucking bomb, yo. Sure, Firestorm works, too, but damn, that Miracle bits like a truck.


Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS Full Boost
I've finally finished all of the Full Boost Missions (I had not updated the game during my previous post, and didn't know that there were additionals that were added through the update), and pretty much learned Zeta Gundam, Mk. II, and V2 Gundam's move set, along with SUMO, Hyaku Shiki, and Cherdum Gundam, since they're my mains. I think my body's now ready for a Maxi Boost port. All I do now is wait.

Sonic Adventure 2 via reicast on NVIDIA Shield Portable
First off, fuck yeah reicast is simply the best emulator on android so far, it runs almost every game really well as long as your phone surpasses a crappy Galaxy S3, since it can run REALLY well with that stupid thing.

Anywho, a lot of my past memories were playing this on the GC and happily regarding it as the best Sonic game overall. A whole bunch of years later?

Fuck, this game is not good. Like, wow. It aged really bad.

The camera is possibly one of the fucking worst, the physics just feel slippy, especially on the Sonic/Shadow levels. Oh yeah, those are the only ones that are decent in the game, all the other characters should just fuck off. THE HORRIBLE VOICE ACTING UGH. Especially on Shadow and Tails, ugh. Bosses are just a cakewalk, IDK why they even bothered. Level design is mostly shit, save for a few Sonic and Shadow levels (Radical Highway is pretty neat)

The visuals are alright, everything looks bright and vibrant, though the cutscenes with the motion capture just look awful. The soundtrack is pretty neat too (City Escape is so annoying)

All in all, alot of people think the early GC/Dreamcast era Sonic games are the holy grail of modern Sonic games because of pure nostalgia, the games have not aged well at all (Sonic Heroes is pretty decent though, its more polished)

3/10 :/

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (GBA)

I had fun playing this, definitely did better than my first play-through on the SNES9x emulator a loong time ago. I'm still in love with the level designs of the game, and I think the final 3 worlds take the cake in level design (Krazy Kremland, Gloomy Gulch, K.Rool's Keep). Graphics aren't terrible, but I still prefer the SNES version over this one (though I wish the SNES version had the same amount of mini games as this one, but yeah memory capacity of SNES). Nice nostalgia (well, kind of) overall...

Combat is active and positioning-based, but it's a lot more simple and TP isn't as stupid. Morale is handled differently in that at random times you'll hear someone go like "UGH I MISSED" or "HAHA, GOTCHA" and then you have that timed button press thing to shout a response which boosts affinity. This game's "TP" only drains if you use chain attacks, warn someone about a Monado future vision, or revive a fallen ally.

I do like how X has the whole "appendage destroy" thing going on, but the combat does feel like a step down from the original.

EDIT: Oh yeah in the first game you can swap out party members on the fly outside of combat. X has you run around New L.A. to find the right dude at their job and you talk to them to make them join your par-YEAH, UH-UH-UH-UH...

EDIT 2: I'm not saying I hate the game, I mean I can play it for hours on end, and I love most of the characters I've run into (maybe it's blasphemy, but I think Tatsu is a better Nopon character than Riki), and I love how instead of "Heart-to-Hearts," you can go on full-on missions centered around certain characters. But there's a lot of really wonky stuff on a technical level that holds this game back from being the superior experience.
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (GBA)

I had fun playing this, definitely did better than my first play-through on the SNES9x emulator a loong time ago. I'm still in love with the level designs of the game, and I think the final 3 worlds take the cake in level design (Krazy Kremland, Gloomy Gulch, K.Rool's Keep). Graphics aren't terrible, but I still prefer the SNES version over this one (though I wish the SNES version had the same amount of mini games as this one, but yeah memory capacity of SNES). Nice nostalgia (well, kind of) overall...

Stickerbush Symphony is still the best piece of game OST there is :buttrox:
Loved the music that plays in the mines. Probably the most underappreciated piece in the game. And yeah, it's one of my favorite games of all time.

Uh...pretty sure they used their English voices for those. English Robotnik sounds very distinct from Japanese Robotnik and I could always hear English Robotnik when I had English voices on

I absolutely guarantee you they used Japanese Robotnik and Japanese Knuckles, both in the version I played and the version played on Game Grumps. They used English voice acting for actual dialog but kept the Japanese actors doing incidental grunts and shit. Knuckles still goes ORAORAORA! and sounds completely different from SA1. I don't remember Robotnik's Japaneseism, but he had one.

I can also confirm, as someone who has played both of those games multiple times, that these two men are correct and those Japanese sound clips were left in. The Adventure games were buggy as hell. There was a progress blocking glitch in my copy of SA1 where a key would just disappear randomly.

Yeah if you're not a story-driven dude, you'll probably want to just skip the game and listen to the good songs on the soundtrack like the themes for Oblivia (https://youtu.be/R9Ul2FEBGUM) and Noctilum (https://youtu.be/AiIcf7ZQ1Us) (which in my mind are some of the best compositions to come out in a while)

Yeah mining melancholy is actually probably the best track in the OST. But Symphony gets more love, especially after it was included in brawl.

The Knuckles rap fucking haunts me.

Yeah most of the knuckles raps suck except pumpkin hill (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGAvaUZOqXc) which I actually really like... for some reason.

Also I don't HATE SA2, But I have a lot of nostalgia for that game and got super good at everything getting A in every mission on every level trying to get green hill zone, which I never did get cause I don't have the patience for the chao gardens.

Arcana Heart 3(vanilla):
After watching TBFP, I decided to revisit this one and the lack of play time shows.  Since I've only played it on-and-off since 2011, I don't have a specific Arcana that I like and Zenia is about the only
character I get a okay feel from (Guile/Elektrosoldat type commands).

A few trophies also seem insurmountable, specifically "No, I Expect You To Die." (I always end up getting an orange or green bar on the charge meter during Zenia's CH) and "Atatatatatatata" (My button-mashing is fine for games like MGS, but how do you expect to do the ultimate version of Akane's CH without a turbo controller?)

N.O.V.A 3 - Freedom Edition
The ONE gameloft that that is actually COMPLETELY free. No stupid paywalls, no premium currency or a stupid energy system, the entire game is free and I'm liking it alot.

For a mobile Crysis rip-off (it stopped being a Halo ripoff a LONG time ago) it holds up pretty well. I played with a gamepad using Tincore keymapper to map the physical controls onto the virtual buttons, goddamn it makes such a difference, when you do that the game plays MUCH better and is actually pretty damn fun online too! It's like a complete console shooter on the go which is always nice, such a shame though it eats up your proccessor power lol

Dark Souls 2: First Scholar (PS4)

I've been a Souls player for quite a few years now, with me feeling as though Bloodborne was the weakest in the series. Which doesn't mean it's even a bad game, it's really good, but not my favorite of the franchise... ...until now. Dark Souls 2: First Scholar... I was sticking with for two weeks now, I liked the change up of enemy placement, that's great! What started pushing me away was how some areas began having a random chance of spawning red souls. All the tactics that I had been dying, memorizing and planning ahead for started becoming useless when random enemies of a random class kept spawning in and fucking up the flow. Wasting time taking them down and having to go all the way back to a bonfire because I had zero chance of making it to the boss... Sometimes even TWO red enemies would spawn in an area, one after I killed the first!

RNG did not make this skill based game any harder for me, it made it stupid.

Perfect Dark(N64):
I've had this for a month and I'm not enjoying as much as Goldeneye.  Though the upgraded AI is welcome, the game feels more hard than "fun" like its spiritual predecessor.
In fact, most of the levels just make me want to clear them, do the time trial and never return.  I get a distinct lack of charm to the single-player levels.

Also, 3 of those final 5 multiplayer challenges reek of unbalance. 
Challenge 26 has those annoying Reaper-accurate Simulants, Challenge 28 is a first, bitter, taste of those DarkSims,
and Challenge 30 keeps feeling like an exercise in agony.
So in an uncharacteristic move, I decided to save my sanity by giving in and performed the 'challenge clear' glitch.

27/30 challenges beaten legitimately (Well.. maybe not. I used the 'hidey hole' trick to beat Challenge 29) is a good number.

@Orochi Gill: Did any of PD's challenges give you any grief, or did you have little trouble beating all 30 challenges?

Honestly, Zombies was better in WaW and BO1. They've been trying to make the recent maps more "complex" but it makes it way too easy to get lost and not know where you're supposed to go. At least the earlier maps you knew where everything was after a game or two.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Wii U)

I've only completed the first stage of the first world, but so far it's a really solid follow-up to DKCR. And as a fan of the original SNES DKC, I have to say that it's not only great to hear some new compositions from David Wise but something of a nostalgia trip for me (even though my younger self never even beat the second half of the second world in the original DKC, but man did those tracks blow my mind). Anyways, I might get back to it once I'm done watching some LPs of some weird mid- to late-90s/early-00s survival-horror titles.

Shovel Knight (3DS)

So yeah, I found a copy at my local library while I was cancelling an old card that miraculously disappeared and had my grandmother check it out on hers and I am definitely in love with this neat little 8-bit throwback. For the scant few people who aren't familiar with it, the best I can describe it as is something of a mix of Megaman and Ducktales with a pinch of Dark Souls (more specifically, the whole losing your currency upon death aspect). The characters are charming, the music's catchy as hell, and the difficulty is pretty much what you'd expect from a game heavily inspired by the NES era.

Shin Megami Tensei IV (3DS)

What with Apocalypse on the way, I thought I'd give the base game a whirl. This is definitely a "real" SMT game, no doubt about it. I mean, I was still in the very first dungeon of the game the last time I played it and I was already getting my ass kicked. But I'm not gonna change the difficulty the next time I get back to it. I wanna have the full unfiltered SMT experience, frustration and all.

Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (3DS)

Okay, Nintendo Treehouse's out-of-touch translation choices aside (Did one of Link's dialogue choices just fucking say "adorbs"? And why is this woman using "le" in a chunk of her lines? Was that a goddamn Doge reference in one of the diaries?), this is a pretty charming game. Mainly played the first two dungeons in single-player mode and as much of a tiny annoyance as it is to play in that mode, it's kinda fun? Might give multiplayer a shot sometime later.

Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash: (3DS)

It's been a long time since I've played a Chibi-Robo game (my last experience was with the original Gamecube title) but it really didn't take all that long for this particular entry to charm my socks off. It's a platformer with all the trademarks you'd come to expect from the series (picking up litter, being mindful of how much battery life you have, being friends with various toys) and a cool twist: the titular tiny robot helper can use his plug as a weapon, an item collector, and even a Bionic Commando-esque grappling hook among its many purposes.

Not all that keen on how it handle stage selection, though. Basically, depending on what color UFO you hit at the end of a stage, your given a certain number of spins (bronze=1, silver=2, gold=3) of a wheel that has numbered panels (1 through 5, I think) which represent how many spaces you move on the map of the world you're currently in. You can't freely choose a stage until you've beaten that world.

Aside from that, it's a pretty cute and fun little game.

Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories

Holy fuck I woulda liked this game if the empire site defense mechanic wasn't the most spiteful piece of shit mechanic in, like, ever. This game does kinda seem alright up until you beat the mission that unlocks the ability to build criminal empire sites for the purposes of getting cash and all that. After that it becomes borderline fucking unplayable.

Your sites come under attack almost every 5 seconds and its almost always by the Cholo gang (what the game calls them, not my own words, I apologize) and when you DO get to whatever site is under attack, prepare for a long and drawn out game of "kill enemies, wait for next car, kill enemies, wait for next car, kill enemies, wait for next car, mushroom mushroom, you win." AKA, not fun at all.

But ohohohho, the worse part is the sheer frequency of said attacks! On more than one occasion, I could defend one site but literally have another one fall under attack a second later, and on the other side of the entire state to boot! And you need these sites to get a decent amount of money so you pretty much HAVE to. And no, not even letting a site burn to the ground saves you from constant running about the entire city like a headless chicken. This means you barely have any free time to explore the city or even do story missions. And yes the Cholo gang can constantly come after you even outside of this. And I thought Ma Cipriani's hitmen were bad! (they actually weren't but still.)

For me the last straw was when I was on my way to Umberto's place for his first mission and site somewhere Downtown came under attack. Having constantly driven from one end of the borough to the other defending sites and getting very aggravated very quickly, I decided "Go fuck yourself." and let the damn thing burn to the ground. So I let it get destroyed. Not one fucking femtosecond later, another site comes under attack far from where I currently was! That was when I finally threw the fucking controller down and ragequit the game, as it was being outright unreasonable. The fucking turf wars in San Andreas were never this obnoxious! ROMAN FUCKING BELLIC was never this obnoxious!!

People who bitch about the Friends mechanic in GTAIV have clearly never played VCS and its piece of shit site defense system and can pretty much go fuck a garbage disposal at this point.

Couple that with missions that are not fun in the least and a painfully boring protagonist and you have what is basically the worst game in the series.

Basically, this game is broken unplayable shit. Play a real GTA game like San Andreas. God even GTAIV is better than this!

Mother Russia Bleeds: It's boring as fuck, the combat has no depth to it (the most complex shit you can do is time I-frames and like a 1 hit juggle) and it has some really bad design choices which I'll get into in a bit, the game is presented fairly decently, sprites are nice and all but the soundtrack is pretty weak, there's a good track or two but most of it is underwhelming.

Anyway this game features a different HP system from most beat em ups, rather than using food to heal, your character starts off with a syringe with 3 charges that can be consumed to heal a small amount or go into a berserk mode for better fighting potential, sounds good on paper, manage your resources well and plan it out, however it's ruined by how you refill your charges. When you kill an enemy there's a chance the enemy will begin twitching in pain, when this happens you can walk up to an enemy and insert your syringe into the enemy to slowly refill your charges, doing this leaves you vulnerable to enemies and having an enemy land near a bunch of tougher enemies can fuck you over as you're never going to have the chance to refill your syringe properly, also these twitching enemies are timed and it seems the longer you take the less of the charge you can get back.

There's also no good tool to clear enemies off of you (Spin kick from FF for example), which sucks in this game since it loves to throw in a lot of enemies at you which can confuse you as you can get lost in the crowd and not know what's going on, one of the most crucial things you can have in a beat em up, most good beat em ups do, it lets you get control of a situation back and get your bearings, not having this in a game with bad hit detection, slow and weak characters, and a punishing HP mechanic really hurts this game way more than it should.

I wanted to like the game but it's incredibly weak, don't recommend.

Dragon's Crown.
I really "wanted" to be into the game not because I actually paid real.money for it years ago when it first came out, but because i loved muramasa the demon blade on wii and it has many special memories.

But i just couldnt get into it no matter how hard i tried-i got tired of having to click around the screen to find hidden stuff-its really annoying that you need to check every freaking screen with the pointer for hidden stuff all the time.

 I would of preferred it to be less dungeon crawl style and more like odinsphere and muramasa gameplay. But i killed first 2 bosses then lost interest.

I liked the amazon the most. She is most fun to play with because of the combos etc

Saints Row 2

No really.

Everything WAS going fairly well til I got to the Sons of Samedi mission "Burning Down The House" when, after I destroyed the final drug lab and killed the lead technician, after the final cutscene the game froze on the results screen. I wondered if it was my PS3 freezing after playing the game so long or what have you, so I booted up the game again and had to do that whole mission again.

And without fucking fail upon beating it, the fucking thing froze on the results screen AGAIN. No, fucking really. I looked on Google and OF COURSE I either get unrelated shit, mission FAQs that don't mention the freeze, or topics that do but are just useless "ME TOO" shit with no concrete solution except apparently the freeze doesn't happen if you beat the mission without dying. Are you fucking kidding me.

The mission's pretty hard, too! I am very likely to die at least once during it and now I'm being told that I have to beat it without fucking dying or else I'll have to reset my entire console to try again because if I die and retry froma checkpoint it'll just go "HAHA FUCK YOU", flash a trollface and crash on the fucking results screen!

FUCK THAT.

Apparently bugtesting would have killed Volition's entire fucking QA staff or some shit. How could they let THIS slip by?

So yeah, what would have been one of my all time favourites is fucked over by one of the most boneheaded glitches yet and I have to throw it back on the shelf to collect dust til I can jump back in and TRY to get past that fucking mission without dying even once.

Fuck off. If this was actually THQ's fault then I'm glad they fucking folded.

Got past the glitched SR2 mission, loving it unconditionally once more if a bit wary now. Let's nominate something else.

007 Legends

Okay so Bond has Daniel Craig's face but not Daniel Craig's voice, there's QTEs because I Wanna Be The Resident Evil 4, the gameplay is blatant I Wanna Be The Modern Warfare but with hacking bits maybe put here and there and you can at least choose to have Classic health style so you can't just suck on some nourishing gravel but it still feels shallow as hell. Oh and when you die, UNLIKE in COD games where it immediately plops you back into the action on a checkpoint a few seconds away  after a pithy war quote, 007 Legends makes you wait through a stupid long loading screen and the checkpoint it punts you back to is always a long ways away. Was it my punishment for choosing Classic health style?

Oh and it missed out on a chance to use the classic actual Goldfinger theme and of all the fucking Bond Movies they chose to use for this ame, why are the Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan eras represented by motherfucking Moonraker and Die Another Day? Why the worst ones of those eras? What, did it make too much sense to use Spy Who Loved Me/For Your Eyes Only and The World Is Not Enough? That's like me doing a Best Of Dragon Ball Z video games...game and just use Legacy of Goku 1, Taiketsu and DBZ Kinect.

God I really hope Goldeneye Reloaded is at least halfway better.

Let It Die
This Rogue-Like game iswas rather fun! The base management is fun, scavenging is fun and a good reason to return to previous levels, combat gameplay is fun and I pretty liked this system overall! Even the back and forth between player bases is not only enjoyable, but satisfying in the set up! To be honest, I found only two problems that kept me from saying it's perfect and one MASSIVE GLARING ISSUE that's the reason I'm going to stop playing.

Problem 1: Load Times. Already read the update coming, glad it's gonna be fixed, but it's too late. In game, in that tower, everything is fast and fun and keeps me going! In the HUB, ugh... everything has a load time. 20sec-2minute load times just to talk to the store vendor, or upgrading one weapon, or buying one item, or accessing my bank... Every load time, I've been patient, but that has been an atrocious experience.

Problem 2: I learned rather late that I must go online to upgrade my wallet and get more characters than 3 in my arsenal... which is sad because I had deleted several max characters so I could make new ones. About 2 final bosses in (After The handyman and the grenadier) did I realize this and I wish I was told that earlier.

Why I'm stopping: Inconsistency with Hater spawns. For those not playing this game, "Haters" are NPCs generated by the game based on random players in the world (Your friendslist takes priority on this, apparently). Also, Haters can be created when your character dies on a floor and you revisit that same floor on a different character. Killing the "Hater" of your previous character will give you that character back, minus any money, items and experience they had. It's just that character and their stats.

The problem is, levels of the RNG Haters are not toned for your current character level or even game level WHATSOEVER. You can have a level 5 character on one of the first 10 floors and you'll get some god tier waiting for you. Completely randomly. These aren't "Hunters" where a player can send one of their NPCs at you directly to kill you for free loot, they're completely RNG.

In the case I realized I had enough, I began a new character with a LUCK build so it can accumulate money faster.
Gather Round and I shall tell you a tale!

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam

I tried to like this game but it was just offensively bland and soulless, and even trying to push myself to play it so I could sell it didn't motivate me to do so. I give up, it's too depressing, especially after how good Dream Team was.

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

I'm not saying this is a bad game, at all, but it didn't click for me. What I played was overly linear, punishingly hard, and no great weapons or abilities ever seemed to appear. The controls for the dual crush never seemed to work right, either, and I'm not a big fan of the two-character system. This wasn't a bad game, it was just a game that went in a direction that I didn't like. I'd prefer more exploration, fewer enemy gauntlets, more options, etc.

Giving up on it, but I'll give Order of Ecclesia a shot soon.

Shadow Hearts: Covenant

The battle system in these games is really satisfying and it is very refreshing to have another RPG series out there with a more original enemy variety than your run of the mill slimes, snakes and wolves, but by the time I hit disc 2, I was pretty burnt out. I also found the soundtrack to be a little less engaging than the previous series entry.

Skyrim (Ps3)

And this is because after starting a new game from the main menu for the hell of it, I learned how Bethseda likes to make their save system work the ass backwards way. The very fucking act of picking "New" from the main menu was apparently enough to wipe out my main save where my redguard character, level 22 with several quests done,. Without a single fucking warning, its gone. Completely. And this is even though I saved my new character onto a completely empty save slot without overwriting a fucking thing.

And it turns out this is because I had saved over the Prisoner save that gets made when you hit "New" and I was supposed to load THAT save file to start a 2nd character, not hit the NEW GAME option, nah that's just stupid of me! I should have been precognizant and known it'd just nuke my old save! Yeah. Not even so much as a "Hey this is gonna delete your old character file if you pick new game, that cool?"

I mean, not like separate character saves could be a thing, not like you coul have different sets of saves representing different charcters, nah that's just a pipe dream oh fucking wait Mass Effect does that exact fucking thing. But apparently Bethesda thinks a game of this scope should have a save system straight out of fucking Pokemon. So if you have  a save with a suepr buffed up Level 99 Nord Vampire Lord and your kid sister starts a new file rom the menu because she wants to play your swords-and-dragons game and play as a pretty cat lady, goodbye old save file! All because that "Prisoner" save was so important! Fuck common sense, fuck warning the player, fuck separate profiles, they're Bethesda, they do shit their way, apparently.

Yeah, I'm dropping this fucking game. Wish I knew beforehand that this game runs on the Pokemon save system in disguise.

Post by: MightyKombat on February 16, 2017, 02:37:23 am
I did do a hard save for my old charcter. I would have thought saving my new one on a whole new blank file and having my old one as a separate hard save by itself woudl be fine, or hell, just choosing "New" from the main menu, wouldn't be enough to erase my old file without warning. But nah it seems that one Prisoner auto save is THAT vital and Bethesda would rather do things the ass backwards way and not the way Namco, Square or Bioware do it.

@MightyKombat

Don't play the PS3 version. It's the worst version from what I've heard.

It did freeze on me a scant few times and the framerates tended to dip but it wasn't as catastrophically bad as I heard up til now. I was playing the Legendary Edition though if that helps.

But not anymore, fuck this game and fuck the way Bethesda does save files. I'll probably start a new file on Mass Effect or Final Fantasy PSP just to remember how sensible companies do save systems.

That happened to me as well, with the PS3 version of Skyrim years ago. However, I lost an lv 80+ char... It was my only char for months, before I had the bright notion to make a new one. When I noticed it saved over my other char, I turned the game in. That was like a year and a half ago though. I got the special edition now on PS4. With it's barely fruitful mods and now newly imposed 100 mod DL limit, regardless of free space you have on the system... Man it hurts...

Problem solved then lol. If you really want to take advantage of all the mods and everything, PC is the way to go. I do want to note though, that the special edition of the game doesn't do that save over your char crap. It makes a separate file for each new char you make. I have like 4 different chars now on PS4 and that never happened. I guess it's too little too late though eh? LOL, I'm with that. I stopped playing the game/turned it in for 2 years. I don't blame you for being upset.

Yeah, a game with an assbackwards Pokemon-style One Character Save Only Or Fuck You at that price? That can go choke on every bowl of dick on the planet. I wouldn't even charge more than £15 for it honestly.

If I may interject, I've been able to have two different game saves in Skyrim. Before I begin, I should say I was playing the Legendary Edition on XBox 360.

From what I remember, each time I manually saved the game it would add to a list of game saves that I could load at any time in case I screwed something up or my game crashed. When I started a new playthrough and eventually saved the game, I was able to still access my old one on that list. You have to manually save the game though because I believe auto saves eventually get deleted from the list.

I hope what I'm saying makes sense, I'm not very good at explaining things.

WOO ACTUALLY GOT SOME TIME TO PLAY SOME VIDEO GAMES

Yakuza 3

So I had no experience with the Yakuza series, but a few youtubers I'm subbed to started giving Yakuza 0 some attention, I think it was Jim Sterling's video I saw first, and it grabbed me immediately. I bought 0, played the first chapter, and loved every second of it. After that I stopped, and started looking into the rest of the series, seeing what was worth playing and what I could get my hands on. I picked up 4 from PSN at a decent price and started there, but had only played for an hour or so (and loved it) before I stumbled across a used copy of 3 for an even better price so I thought why not, especially because I found the summary videos of it in 4 really confusing and hard to follow (I understood 1 and 2's just fine).

This was a mistake.

This game feels incredibly dated. Moving around feels very bad, with Kiryu jumping forward as soon as you even touch the stick. He feels a little too big and awkward in the world outside of combat, in a way that makes everything feel incredibly artificial and shoddily made. It reminds me of a JRPG in this sense. Also the second boss I ran into--the first being ridiculously easy--had QTE button-mashes which I failed pretty much every time unless I stopped holding the controller properly and mashed with two fingers on the same button. Also, the graphics and overall feel is just bad, it feels worse than some PS2 games I remember outside of cutscenes, and even the cutscenes and voice acting don't save it because it has a moment in a cutscene then will switch to a text-based dialog infodump to convey the meat behind the scene. The tone is just really weird, too. The entire thing feels very Dreamcast, and I mean that mostly in a bad way. Also a random golf minigame happened. What even was that.

I love what I've seen of the series, for reasons I'll talk about when I play more of the more recent games and post about them, but this is one installment too far back to be enjoyable. Don't go there unless you have a high tolerance for janky movement, low immersion, ridiculous amounts of text, and bullshit bosses. The story seems at least acceptable, but not enough to make me sit through all that for.

I'm used to playing these games on emulator or with a playstation controller and this just isn't working for me when it ramps the difficulty up.

I can understand why people wouldn't like BW, and why BW2 having old pokemon would be appealing, but I really liked a lot of the risks they took. Not my favorite overall but definitely one of the better ones.

I've just never been able to get through a full playthrough of BW2. It's different enough that it treats itself like a separate game, but it's similar enough that it isn't really, and it just gets too boring when I move out of the new areas.

I was trying to play through a bunch of them in sequence, but... nah. Especially because it's worth something and I'm moving away from where I can easily sell games in a couple of months.  On to Y.

Monster Monpiece
I bought the game two weeks ago because some friends won't shut the f*ck up about it.
Played it for 1~2 hours daily the first week, completely dropped it after that
There was some kinda story that I only bothered to read the first two or three hollow, high-cliched dialogues about overused scenario settings.
The gameplay is a f*king joke: send your monstergirls to battle in some kind of board, where you can only summon one at a time only to have her killed by your enemy's freshly summoned mon, which in turn, will get weakened and then killed by your next summon. Repeat
Also while you are limited by your stamina, the CPU always plays premium cards (available for you via paid DLC) effectively giving it unlimited stamina.
The card leveling system is damn stupid and useless, leveling up cards or monstergirls will make them "sexier" but will in turn make the mon weaker. seriously WTF, leveling up a character should make them stronger not the other way around.
Finally, while you can have lots of different girls, when summoning them to the battlefield, they all use the same generic model representing them in battle.

tl;dr
it was garbage

I'm gonna do a play through on the old CRT as well
for nostalgia lol.

The Last of Us

Hugely overrated game. Bad, frustrating gameplay. Lots of ladders and hauling on chains to open doors. Who thought this was a good idea?

Really? I thought it was the best of the year. :C

But then, I'm also a sucker for "parental" things.

Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories

Oh fucking okay then crash the fucking game the moment I come close to beating level 12 of Vigilante you fucking piece of shit with your fucking ropey slippy slidey car physics and your chat radio constantly defaulting that Nurse Bob prick, be that way.

GOD the Stories games fucking suck sometimes.

Cave Story+ (Switch)

Realized I didn't get the good ending, but by that time I already deleted the save. Gonna go back to it, but with the original graphics and the chiptune soundtrack.
