What Video Game Are You Currently Playing?

Recommended Posts

Trying another CI Interactive budget series; code of honor. The first game didn't appeal to me shooting, and being shot at by, hitscan blobs on the horizon. But the sequel is a lot better.

I am playing Quake 2 with the Ground Zero mission pack, I think I only played through this one fully only once before, but the same goes for the other mission pack too.

I finally decided to give SUPERHOT a chance, and I'm already hooked. It's a game that I can recommend 100%. It's a shooter, but somehow it's also a strategy game and a puzzle of sorts. Anyone else played it??

Maybe I'll start Blood too, since everyone is talking about it.

I played the VR edition of Superhot at a mall. I was definitely impressed. Neat game.

 

@GamingMarine Well, the SNES port of it certainly sucks, though the arcade version was pretty fun for what it was. Remember, music is the weapon!

I recently played through about 90% of Alex Kidd in Miracle World. As with Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle, which I finished on the PS2 maybe 5 years ago, it has some neat ideas and fun powerups, but poor controls and wonky hit detection. The game is far removed from being difficult but can be really annoying and cheap at times. Having to fight bosses by playing rock paper scissors was a stupid idea then and it's a stupid idea now. I've often thought of Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle as the most average game I've ever played but seeing as how it retained most of the annoying design features of the original Alex Kidd, without really improving upon much, I can safely say that my respect for that game has dropped, though I definitely had more fun playing it than I did with Miracle World. I have no desire to play Miracle World ever again. 

 

Alex Kidd in Shinobi World is quite good, mind you. I really enjoyed playing through that game. I've found that the best Master System games are often the lesser known ones.

Right now I'm playing the The Reckoning mission pack for Quake 2 via KMQuake 2 with the hi res texture pack and a few hi quality weapon models.

@Avoozl The Reckoning is probably my favorite of the Quake II games.

Finished ep1 of NBlood on Well Done (yay no more difficulty bug!) and starting on Dungeon Siege.

I have to replay Quake 2 and the mission packs again soon. 

 

Meanwhile I got back into playing Doom 2016.  Just made it back to Mars after going to hell.

even though there's strictly speaking, more stuff in Ground Zero (including a new boss, since The Reckoning just recycled the old boss), I also found it extremely annoying to play with all the HP padded turrets in almost every room all over the place. The Reckoning was just overall more fun to play. It did have problems with HP padded monsters that weren't much threat (the phalanx gladiators), but at least it didn't have turrets. heh

Ground Zero on hard was a nightmare, and turrets were only half the battle, I only realized just how much power armor trivializes the game when it is not included. That shit is too OP so I avoid using it now in the regular game. Even the power ups like quad damage feel like strange leftovers from Q1 and seem outta place given the Strogg's environment, and make your already powerful weapons excessively damaging, cheesing the bosses.

ShenMue on the PS4. My DC disc 1 is scuffed, and having it resurfaced didn't fix it. Blazing through the PI portion just so I can spend more time practicing moves.

I resumed my first playthrough of F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate which I have left on hiatus since 7th July 2015 as said on my last save. I only ever played the other expansion pack Extraction Point once and a similar situation happened where I had to put it on hold after getting a new PC at some point and because of a stuttering issue on more modern PC's.

In the middle of ep2 of Blood in NBlood on Well Done, my favorite episode in the game. Beat ep1 of Heretic in Chocolate Heretic on skill 4 since I'm having a Raven kick once again (but with no mid-level saving). Got my first NPC buddy in Dungeon Siege recently, really unique game if you haven't heard of it, like a blend of ARPG and squad-based RTS that allows up to a total of eight NPCs in your party. Starting unit 4 in Quake II via KMQuake II (playing on hard and ignoring/dropping the power armor).

Having played Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle on the XBox 360 Sega Megadrive Ultimate Collection around about a year ago, I think you've got a similar opinion of it to the one I left with. The majority of the game just doesn't really come together very well. The last level was both longer and better than a lot of the rest of the game, though. The only downside? It still ended on rock paper scissors, for some reason. Truly baffling game design.

 

I did finish Secret of Mana on the SNES Classic Mini at some point a couple of weeks ago, which ended on a boss fight that seemed to expect me to see perspective in some dodgy sprite-based 3D... Not quite as difficult to work with as navigating the world riding Flammie was, but still not exactly intuitive. On the plus side, I was slightly over-levelled and therefore fully capable of keeping myself in the fight long enough to luck through it. The story ends on a bittersweet note, which felt appropriate for a game that tries it's best to pull at your heart strings at various points, whilst essentially being an upbeat and colourful experience. Really good game, for all I've noted about it not being intuitive. 

 

Next on my to-do list, courtesy of RNGsus, is Ecco: The Tides of Time. I really liked the original Ecco the Dolphin when I played it early last year, even if it did enter a special world of kicking my arse near the end of the game, so I'm looking forward to making a start on this when I get/make the time.

im obsessing over celeste and slay the spire recently

feel like I don't wanna revisit FPS stuff unless people from these boards have a hand in it

plus slay the spire is moddable and you can see the code
and an official celeste level modder is rumoured now and then

 

also learning how to mess with the pico-8, i'm already pseudo-handy with the internal tracker

@yakfak I'm a big fan of Celeste too :D It's one of those special games that nails the gameplay, presentation and emotions. Killer soundtrack as well. Up there on my best Christmas purchases :)

I started Away-Journey to the unexpected.

They need to fix the controls (very floaty mouse acceleartion, also I need to be able to remap)

Game looks gorgeous but from the reviews I see it's a bit short and repeatitive. Might catch up with it if they update the controls.

I play game from Drakemall. It's easy, I just need to buy loot boxes with cool items and get one random item from the box in the end. It's a sort of win-win games where every player win smth in the end. Want to try my luck.

After finally completing the last F.E.A.R. expansion for the first time I decided to play through the main game again, I didn't finish my last play through of it from 2013 but I decided to start from scratch again. This time I am actually aiming to use the pistols and they do pack quite a punch I even randomly gibbed an enemy with them somehow, I don't know why I was avoiding them during my many past playthroughs of the game,  I am finding the highest difficulty to be a real cake walk though, I already saved up the maximum of 10 medikits. The last expansion actually added some new challenging enemies and weapons which they were using.

The FEAR 1 pistol is underrated, it deals a whoppin' 40 points of damage per shot, when paired it is extremely deadly against all but the most armored Replicas. Even by itself it can still take down a typical Replica in seconds regardless of what weapon he's using.

Not counting Doom or Quake; I've recently been playing:

-Kingpin: Life of Crime

-GTA 3

-Max Payne 1

-Diablo 2

-Medieval II: Total War

-ARMA 2

-and sadly, the first Counter-strike.

And a bunch of other stuff. Depends on how many days I'm off.

yeah :3 the game really appeals to me despite me not normally playing anything that isn't turn-based :))

much as I'm enjoying grinding on the optional levels I think that if I ever got my hands on a level editor I would be making a explore-y strawberry hunt rather than some sort of kaizo challenge. 5C is already a kaizo challenge lol
