Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Phantasy Star IV is an excellent experience; a good story and it really all pays off at the end. I also recommend listening to the Square Roots Podcast's coverage of the game from a few years ago.

Re: Books completed

Second the recommendation on Masters of Doom, although if you didn't like John Romero before reading it, you REALLY won't like him afterwards.

Re: Games Completed 2021

Yep, there is stuff to find in the open world, but it's relegated to the Free mode, mostly. Funnily enough I have been playing the remastered version of L.A. Noire as well.

Re: Games Completed 2021

1/3- Mafia: Definitive Edition XBox One "I got people I need to protect." Mafia II is one of my favorite games of all time, though that's more for the mood I was in at the time rather than the game itself- I think I wrote a review of it that gave it a 6.5 over a decade ago. But it was memo...

Re: What's Out This Week?

I remember playing the demo of Scott Pilgrim back then, and I didn't buy it because I was a) out of work and had plenty of games to play and b) It gave me such Kunio Kun vibes I realized I would never, ever stop playing it if I bought it.

Re: Games of 2021: What piques your interest?

It's weird, I can't think of anything right now, because I'm not entirely certain with the way the world is going and the fallout of Cyberpunk 2077's release that a lot of what I'm expecting to ship in 2021- like Resident Evil 8- won't get pushed back to 2022, or 2023. I enjoyed Hitman 2, but I'm in...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Alien Isolation- thanks, XBox GamePass! I decided to play this for the spooky season. First off, Creative Assembly must be commended for creating a game and world that would totally resemble a sequel to Alien had it been made in, say, 1981 and still under Ridley Scott's purview (I was never a huge f...

Re: Halo 5: Guardians - Cane and Rinse 435

Playing this game this past summer, I couldn't understand what happened in the campaign. And it seems like no one else could either. ;-)

Yeah, it's pretty frustrating. For whatever reason, I couldn't get used to the N64 stick.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

River City Ransom - Thirty years, thirty years this game has nestled itself in my head. This is the third time I've bought it- first on the original NES, then on the 3DS virtual console, and now on XBox One. For some bizarre reason I would love to know, the Double Dragon and Kunio Run Retro Brawler...

Re: Jet Force Gemini

I wanted to play this on my copy of Rare Replay for the podcast, but I'm finding aiming incredibly frustrating. Is the XBox controller just not compatible with the original style or am I doing it wrong?

You play the entire game as Duke, reacting to everything that's going on and trying to convince everyone you're not this Grayson guy. It's pretty hilarious.

Gears 5 (Operation 3!) By the time I started this draft and now am writing this post, it's gone up to Operation 4. Anyway, back in May (!) I finished a play through of the Campaign. I find the Gears games fascinating in that the storytelling of the campaigns drives me absolutely insane with how it'...

It's a solid enough read- it's John Shirley, how could it not be- but it's non-essential. His Borderlands novels are more fun.
