Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I haven't been playing much of anything. Dunno if it's a depression or what. I feel like I wake up too late, and then by the time I'm done getting my tasks done for the day, it's night time and all I wanna do is lay down and be a potato. I sold Mario + Rabbids because the charm of the game kinda wor...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I loved Huntdown but bailed once I got to the final boss. The last few bosses are tough, but the final final boss was just too frustrating for me. I started another playthrough, this time on easy mode (I loved the game that much I was more than happy to play it through a second time) but I couldn't...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Finally got a copy of Astral Chain , and it's kind of surreal being Fantasy Anime Cop during (current events). I was literally at a protest of around 5,000-10,000 people yesterday here in London (Ontario). The only people the cops here were shitty to was a known white supremist wearing KKK attire so...

Re: Games Completed 2020

#13 - Final Fantasy XIII-2 Yeah so this game is great. I actually wound up getting the platinum trophy on this - first time I've done that since Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection. In general, if the trophies compel me to see every corner of the game the devs have crafted instead of just being rand...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm HOPING to finally finish FF13-2 this weekend, but I'm at the point where things start to get a little ridiculous. On Wednesday, I spent 9 hours - 9 bloody hours - on a slot machine mini-game to obtain a single fragment (fragments being a collectable, of which all 160 are required to get the true...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Not to have a pop but every game has the right to be good. I never quite understood that phrase, but yes, Mario and Rabbids is one of my favourites on the system although the DK DLC didnt have quite the same impact to me Ostensibly, it's just a way of saying, "I was apprehensive of this idea at fir...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Getting very close to finishing FF13-2 with the "true ending" and it's been really interesting to me to see just how many of this game's ideas actually went on to feature in Nier Automata - similar soundtrack, similar "multiple endings and the first ending you get isn't the real one", and in some in...

Re: Games Completed 2020

#12 - Wuppo Wuppo is still a phenomenal game, and there's really nothing else like it. It's this oddball feverdream of a game from Holland, with a cute aesthetic and its own internal sense of logic. Why should you play it? It's just a nice game. It's often sentimental, but not saccharine. A complain...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I started playing Wuppo again. I love this game. It's like a nice, warm blanket. Well-written, great art direction, a seriously overlooked hidden gem.

Oh and FF13-2 has a really convoluted puzzle dungeon at the end so I'm not speaking to it for a few days.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm still hammering away at FF13-2, and it's still really quite enjoyable. There's barely a story here, but jumping around time to resolve paradoxes is quite fun. It's actually a bit of a collectathon - by resolving paradoxes, you get these crystals called Fragments, and I am trying to get them all....

Re: Videogame Deals

Wuppo is only $1.49 (USD$0.99) on PSN right now. Everyone should go buy it, that game is seriously something special. Haven't heard of it? Barely anyone has, it seems. It's a game made by two Dutch game devs. The graphics are all hand-drawn, and the world is... Completely unique. Both adorable, and ...

Re: Comfort Gaming

Normally, I have trouble sitting down and focusing on games for any extended period of time... But I noticed a really interesting trend when reviewing my PSNProfiles account. The periods where I'm not regularly popping new trophies have also coincided with my major depressions. I'm not sure which wa...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Good assessment. The recent Raiden games are largely shit to me but I've played a fair bit of Raiden Fighters Jet recently and it's really really good. Very chunky and crunchy. Visibility is much better than the recent titles. I really have to give the Raiden Fighters game another go sometime soon....

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

In Raiden IV, everything is sort of yellow/orange, including enemy bullets, some of your own bullets, some background elements, ship explosions and even some of the power-ups and collectible pellets: Coupled with the heightened speed of said projectiles in comparison to the bullet hell games I'm mo...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I've been trying a bit of Raiden IV: Overkill after reading Iso's posts since I had never played the game before, and... man, I am struggling with the visibility in that game. The screen is cluttered with all sorts of explosions, power-ups and collectible goodies as well as tiny enemy projectiles t...

Re: Games Completed 2020

#11 - Raiden IV: Overkill So first off, this is a REALLY great game. One of the few 3D shmups that feels "right". I don't really know how to put in words how a good SHMUP makes me feel, because it appeals more to a primal part of my brain; I kind of zone out and let my ship flow between the bullets....

I feel like not having played FF13 actually improves my experience here somewhat, because as much as it's a sequel... It's also kinda not? It takes place 3 years after the original, in an...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

I have seen the PS4 version of Wild Guns as low as $10 used, and I did own it once upon a time. Not really my thing. But I think the "Reloaded" version hasn't exactly been a sales success, I see it in bargain bins EVERYWHERE usually priced at $20-30. So if the publisher did, indeed, have trouble sel...
