Aside from playing Blade of Agony (I'm on Chapter 3), I had been playing the Miitopia demo and had been going back to Super Animal Royale again.

Metal Gear Solid 3. I've owned this game for a very long time but have only now just gotten around to it. So far, I like it a lot more than MGS2, but I don't think I like it as much as MGS1.

I'm really enjoying Resident Evil Village so far. Menu navigation is a pain and it seems to suffer from various mouse issues, but the game itself is really enjoyable, combat feels great and there are plenty of baddies to kill. More fantastical things like vampires and werewolves seems like a strange choice for RE but it works with the locations and almost has a Bloodborne feel.

 

The locations and level design are fantastic for my taste, The decor in castle Dimitrescu is just as over-the-top as the characters that inhabit it. I'm playing very casually and slowly because I have many other things going on in my life, but I look forward to finishing the whole game eventually.

Anyone here play HROT yet? I've been really enjoying it. Has a very unique aesthetic, albeit - its a little brown...

Holy shit, the boss battle with The End was so fucking epic. Maybe this actually is a better game than MGS1.

It's one of the greatest games ever made, in my opinion, and you've still only seen some of the reasons why I'd say that.

I bought it about two months ago, just restarted it yesterday. It's very brown, it's easy to get lost in, the weapons seem underpowered, the sounds need to be louder.

 

The grenades need a larger explosion radius, and they need to be less bouncy. Trying to get one in just the right place to blow up a cracked wall is a headache.

 

It's not a bad game by any means, but it does seem underwhelming. There's quite a bit of promise in it, but in its current state I wouldn't tell someone to buy it. It's atmospheric as hell, and I would never argue that it's accomplished that goal.

 

But as far as gameplay, it's not that great. Sadly, the creator has commented on the Steam forums that they're not that interested in changing some of the major issues that I have with it. Like making it so that you can't walk through railings, and enemies can't magically climb up fifteen foot vertical walls.

 

We'll see what happens with it. I think it could be really good, but right now it's kind of meh.

I wasn't aware of that. The fact that the enemies always walked through the railings kind of bothered me. I mean, it really wouldn't be hard to fix the collision for something like that... I wouldn't recommend anyone buy it  right now, as there's only one episode anyway.

 

Like you said 'We'll see what happens with it."

 

I think it has potential, but many a great game has been spoiled by their creators, you're right. I do find the game has some charm - I just wish it was a bit more polished, now that I've had some more time w/ it.

I agree, it has charm, and it has potential, and I hope it does really well. The fundamentals are there, but it needs work. Hopefully the creator doesn't get too inside their head that they stop listening to outside advice.

 

But yeah, I wouldn't really advise anyone to buy it at this point. Which sucks. When I bought Dusk in early access I was all over telling people they needed to play it, because it was just really damn good. Not completely formed, but really fun. With Hrot, I can't do that, it needs more work.

I really need to finish that game. I bought it for the PS2 and ended up pawning it, because it required the dual shock pressure sensitive controller to actually aim and then fire. I was still using a PS1 dual analog controller because the one that came with my PS2 was crap, broke down shortly after I bought it, and I didn't feel like dropping $50 on a controller. But the PS1 dual analog didn't have pressure sensitive buttons, so I couldn't really play it. 

 

Got it again on Xbox 360, but never finished it. I should get back to it, it seemed enjoyable. I finished MGS 1 and 2, and despite 2 feeling more like a movie than a game, and Ryden getting really annoying, they were fun.

 

And then I suppose I need to finish MGR Reveangance, and MGS 5. Never going to play MGS 4 I suppose, I don't have plans on buying a PS3 anytime in the future, so unless it's released on PC, I'm going to miss that one.

Yeah, Raiden was really annoying. His constant whining and girlfriend problems kind of turned me off of the franchise for a while.

As well as some Doom WADs, I’ve picked up playing RCT2 Triple Thrill Pack again, aftershock couple of years off of it. Finally managed to beat the Build Your Own Six Flags Magic Mountain scenario quickly enough that the game didn’t crash when I hit the objective (seems to be over 10 years is bad, so I did it within 8). With that scoreboard now filled in, I grabbed and played the semi-official Panda World extra scenario, which was laughably easy. I’ve now resumed filling out the Expert Parks, doing the South America one from Wacky Worlds, which was easier than expected. 6 more from that expansion pack and then the 5 from Time Twister and I’ve completed that entire compilation. These have distracted from AoE: DE and Doom mapping, though, so it’s not all good!

Now that my fondness for the MGS series has resurfaced, I'd really love to play MGS 4. It's bizarre that it's remained a PS3 exclusive for this long.

I beat Resident Evil Village recently, and I enjoyed it very much. I still think RE7's a bit better overall, but this was still a fair evolution of its predecessor.

 

Now I've decided to get on a game that made some changes that turned me off from it at first, but have read its critical praise has mostly been good and its getting a sequel soon, so why not: Shadow Warrior 2. While the first SW reboot game was more straightforward and I generally prefer that, I respect what SW2 is going for and I'm mostly having a blast with it so far. Although... I unfortunately have to take a point off for a horribly cringey fortune cookie I picked up that said "Wangs out for Harambe." Oof. OOF. Not just crude, but dated too. Hopefully, nothing else that embarrassing is in the game, but it's still early yet.

More Tekken 7:

?imw=1024&imh=614&ima=fit&impolicy=Lette

 

Was messing around with Paul the other day and I caught a plugger/ragequitter for the first time. Prior to this, my opponent activated his Rage Art (this game's super move) but I didn't jump in time (Akuma's RA was an unblockable so jumping is the only way to avoid it) so I lost a ton of health but still had a few left. At this point, I had to play cautiously but I accidentally inputted Paul's Rage Art and thought "Oh shit, I fucked up" but then it hits. But then I realized that he was actually in the middle of an animation and I was relieved because if it was blocked, I would have died. So I guess I got really lucky there.

 

I might consider having Paul as a second main (dropped Dragunov because I got bored with him so I'm a Bryan player now) just because of his stupid good damage output and I heard he's a fundamental character so I might be able to learn something from him. The only problem I have with him right now is that some of his moves are in quarter-circle motions so execution is a bit tricky for me. Another character I'm also consider maining is Julia just because she's cute (dumb reason but whatever) and looks pretty strong.

Well, I should finally be getting around to playing the Batman Arkham games now, but my WiFi decided to be a dick to me and turned off while I was downloading. I have super slow WiFi, so I won't get around to playing the game until tomorrow. I have also been replaying REKKR for DOOM on PS4 just for fun.

Currently switching between Viscerafest and the Lost Civiliation WAD. Playing Valorant and Apex 3v3 areans when I can get friends together. Been real hard to consistently play because of my baby girl and being exhausted most of the time because of her lol 

 

I love her to death, but I miss playing for more than an hour at a time.

Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth, which is a fun spirited take on the Symphony of the Night formula, and Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne HD Remaster, which I am happy with. Now and then you notice they did not update every texture, but I am enjoying it, it's my favourite JRPG of all time and it holds up.

Record sounds interesting, I'm a sucker for SotN. Closest I've played is Blasphemous. 

I'm hoping to pickup Shin Megami Tensei when it goes on sale, that price is a bit steep at the moment, that said if it was my favourite I'll pay it. (I paid full price for Berserk & The Band of the Hawk)

That's fair, I was willing to pay that because of my circumstances, I have the money and I don't find it easy to find games relevant to my interests, and to be honest I never saw this game getting a remastered release on PC. Atlus might have sent it out to die if they expect a lot of sales, but at least I can play it. If somehow it does achieve some success, I'd hope for the Digital Devil Saga games.

Picked back up No Man's Sky due to the current Expedition having a rather interesting reward. Already seeing some interesting things...

The bioluminescence means waves/curtains of light travel along the ground at night. It's so pretty.
