All for Switch:

Dynasty Warriors 8 XL - I think this is the third time I’ve beat this game. Took it to the next level by beating all the star missions and maxing out the ambition mode. The ambition mode is somewhat broken in the end and half baked. I don’t recall if a DW8 Empires existed but this game is fairly decent. I’d consider it a mid tier Musou. Sounds like DW9 is unlikely to be ported to the Switch. I haven’t heard good things about it but I’d be willing to try it. Switch game clock says over 65 hours was spent on it.

Super Mario Maker 2 - 100% in story mode and played a few online levels. This should not be a shock but most people suck at making levels, including myself. The story mode levels are generally weak but amazing compared to the crap I saw online.

Zed Blade - ACA NeoGeo collection title. I enjoy shoot em up games. Never heard of this one but the price was cheap. I had a couple hours of fun with this one.

Plus Alpha - Another ACA shoot em up that is pretty uguu. I enjoyed this more than Zed Blade but not as good as the Psikyo collection games. Got it for $4 on sale; the price is right if you get it then. Not sure it’s be worth more than that.

On deck is Trials of Mana. Fun and simple for me. About 10 hours in and maybe a third of the way through. I take it easy and do some grinding so I’ll probably beat it in the next week or two. I like it.

Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition - Really solid CRPG. I enjoyed the fact they let you (bar it was your primary class in the lead) raise your stats on level up to where you could get all stats to 25 if you ground (or cheated  :doge) to the level 127 class cap.

Story is very WORDS WORDS WORDS but that's not a bad thing after Baldur's Gate 1. I dunno the Planescape material, but the fact that you're basically
spoiler (click to show/hide)
trying to find out how you're immortal, you find out that it's fucked up and that you're trying to escape being a total bad-ass murderer
[close]
you go to the final dungeon and are like
spoiler (click to show/hide)
"yeah, I'll kill myself if it stops you from keeping me around and making me lose my memories." or "you can merge with me and we go to hell together to suffer for our murdering" or "I can resurrect my party and then kick your ass and go to hell then."
[close]

was pretty nice. I forget what is next on the "Infinity Engine" release timeline (Baldur's Gate 2? Icewind Dale) but I'll have to get around to those after dicking about in PSO2 a little.

Castlevania Rebirth - Great game, had it in the backlog forever. Similar to Contra Rebirth, this is full of new ideas and it's ridiculous that these games are now only obtainable via ROM. They could easily sell these as new titles practically, because no one paid attention to WiiWare and they are super high quality. The only flaw of this game is that it doesn't have a permanent save feature and the game is too long for a single playthrough. Classic CV had passwords to prevent this problem.

Contra Rebirth, replay. Maybe one of the best Contra games. It has the crazy setpieces of Hardcorps but none of the ultra-punishing bs. This game has the opposite flaw of CV rebirth though: There's automatic saves constantly and infinite continues, which makes it way too easy and there's no proper difficulty scaling.

Serious Sam: First Encounter HD, replay - First time playing this since I was a kid. Holds up well enough. No military porn, no pretentious story, just alien hordes in Ancient Egypt and lots of fun things to discover inbetween. Only some of the final stages get annoying even with save scumming.

Streets of Rage 2, replay - first time in coop. I only played this for the first time some years back and loved it since. Still so, though in multiplayer the other guy is your biggest enemy. :doge

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light - tbf the sequel improved this formula a lot. The fast paced platforming and puzzle solving is still okay, but the sequel goes way beyond with a cool hubworld and creative bosses, among other things.

Star Wars Rogue Squadron: Rogue Leader - Never got around to this since it came out. 20 years ago the graphics blew my mind and who could've thought: They still look good. Gamecube's an absolute beast. The gameplay is pretty good, but too punishing. No way I go for higher medals  :doge Never felt so good to fly an X-Wing though. The difficulty helps to really make you feel like you took down those star destroyers, but some other parts are just cumbersome. Also, I thought I was above this, but nostalgia hit really hard with that oldschool Star Wars atmosphere.

Super Paper Mario - I always felt I should give this another try. Back in the day it felt too whack for me, but these days Mario games became so sterile, that I'm longing for weirder takes on the franchise. That lame ass Origami-Mario announcement sealed that decision. And I really like this way more nowadays. Some of the gameplay and padding can still be pretty bad. But it feels so refreshing to play a Mario 'RPG' with unique setpieces and characters that aren't completely predictable. Not to mention, there's a story and lore that takes itself seriously beyond the typical jokes and meta-gags.

Hitman GO - Didn't feel quite as great as Lara Croft GO, but it's still a fun puzzle game. At first I thought the board game concept didn't lend itself too well for Hitman, but then they kept bringing in more and more elements from the main series.

Best Gears since 1. Good mix of semi opem design and old fashioned gunplay. Some nice new twists.

Dont even mind that its so episodic in nature.

Final Fantasy Versus 13/"15" -

Theme for the game:



Actual Theme
[close]



Bebpo basically gives his thoughts in the "what are you playing" thread, and I mostly agree with him: It's a good first half, but it kind of falls apart in the second half. Insomnia is only shown in the opening five minutes (and we don't explore it) and then the big battle after 10 year time-skip. Which is pretty shitty after how much Nomura and team focused on it in the Versus 13 trailers.

The game works amazingly well as a road-trip journey. But once that road-trip suddenly stops with the Leviathan trial, it starts to collapse hard because a lot of the story is missing.

HOWEVER once you reach the enemy Empire HQ's/lab, the game picks up in having an interesting twist on the "Daemons" being something entirely else. BUT the game doesn't explain the rest at all. A lot of the lore it seems comes from the supplemental material which is total horseshit because if they focused on Versus 13 exclusively, it would've been a very solid (and I'd probably put it in my top 5) Final Fantasy.

Unfortunately, they didn't.

Then you have the combat system which is hit and miss. I'm not against it (though I prefer 12's "play itself" MMO style) but the tactical ability isn't... really... there. There's a reason they're hiring Action Game genre folks now a days at Square it seems and this prototype doesn't have the "depth" beyond like Omega and some higher level enemies that want you to abuse certain shit that you normally don't need to, especially if you do side-quest and level up.

Controller wise:



OH MY GOD you have no fucking idea how much that shit bothered me. "Gathering ingredients? No, fuck you. Hop up and down like five times before I register you wanting to pick it up despite the prompt being there for a good minute or two." I started to wait until Noctis stopped moving to do that and even then he'd still hop up and down before registering. Fuck whoever at Square designed the controller and didn't play test it extensively.

I will say that the photo selection bits are important for the ending, when you see what you chose (and a lot of mine was Gladio...  :-[ ) it fits the theme-song for the ending extensively if you did it "right" as Square intended (have shots of the team, don't focus necessarily on just one.  :lol :oops ) and shows that the cut back-half/rushed ending really hurts the journey more than anything.

I haven't done the episodes yet, but I will. I do think a DLC that focused on the other three post Light coming in would've been the first thing I'd have done instead of individual character focuses but that's just me.

Get it on Sale, and maybe wait to see if this last patch on Steam fixes the performance issues and memory leaks that apparently were introduced with Ardyn's DLC.

One of my favourite moments from a game in the last ten years was the opening bit of FF15. Pushing the car with your bros as Stand by Me plays.

Finished up and Plat'ed Persona 5 Royal

Loved the new semester and True Ending. I really hope the next Persona games have more dungeons, villains and characters akin to the new ones we got in Royal. Story wise, it enhances - but also undermines some of what happens Vanilla P5. I felt it was necessary considering I wasn't the biggest fan of the original main narrative for various reasons.

Most fans seem to prefer the Vanilla True Ending, but I feel the new one is more fitting and actually commits to something compared to how the original game couldn't fully commit to a single fucking message lol

If you wanted the happiest ending

spoiler (click to show/hide)
You should have agreed to Maruki's reality.

Also loved how they introduce Sumire's character originally, then use her trauma subtly as an example of how both Maruki is right and wrong. The fact that it's implied Maruki had the power to bring people to life even in his unawakened state, but still giving Sumire what she wanted - to become Kasumi, her sister. He did that rather than bring Kasumi back to life, showing how committed he was to bring "happiness" to someone rather than fixing the root of their problems. However, Sumire wishing to be Kasumi rather than having her sister back is an indictment of her resentment and wish to surpass her. The only way she got over it was for Maruki to give her the reality she wanted, and her using that experience to move forward. Hell, everyone wanting to move forward after experiencing Maruki's reality was good shit.

Even better is how the Phantom Thieves went from the biggest force in Japan to a cringe old meme in a matter of months

The tracks you hear in the third semester FUCKING SLAPS and we got the best final boss tracks in a JRPG in fucking forever, somehow even managing to beat out what we got in FFVII remake

Doom Eternal - Encounter design is still good, environments are better, gameplay more varied. Metal as fuck. On the other hand, they ultimately went overboard and put way too much modern gaming shit in there that got in the way of Doom 2016's purity. Horrendous tutorials, visual clutter, tons of convoluted small mechanics, shallow RPG mechanics put on top of each other.
Maybe some of the worst handholding ever - what other game literally shows you a video how to defeat bosses and new enemies, before you even encounter them nonetheless?
WTF

:yikes

Mega Man Zero - I mostly loved the gameplay, learning boss patterns in particular. Crazy hard, but it pays off. However, I have no idea what they were thinking with that progression system. If you lose a level, you can't replay it ever again. So you have to grind continues and then save scum to learn stages/bosses. WTF

Mega Man Zero 2 - Has a normal save system now, but overall less interesting stages/bosses. The new whip weapon is a pretty lame gimmick.

Mega Man Zero 3 - Much more engaging than the second game again, even if now too easy. Before I could even max out most of my desired abilities, I already beat this thing :doge

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, replay - Still one of the GOATs.

Contra NES - No-Death-Run  :mynicca

Xenoblade Chronicles "definitive" edition:

This game does not respect the player's time. Thankfully we are in a global pandemic so my time is not overly valuable and I can chase down bullshit 2% spawn rate items that I have no way of knowing if they spawned or not to rebuild a city or something. Honestly if they cut the sidequests out of this game it would be a solid 20-25 hour game with a reasonable enough story and combat system that could use a few more options to it. Instead they padded this game with 400+ sidequests, many of which rely on random drops or random spawns. At the 60 hour mark I got a pretty big lore dump and some interesting story. Then after 2 hours of being locked into story events and cutscenes, I spent 20 hours doing more side quests before I beat the game (and I probably had another 5-10 hours of sidequests, plus another who knows how many hours of other things to do).

Shadow of the Colossus HD: The camera controls annoyed me a lot more than they did 15 years ago. But otherwise  I still have a strong emotional attachment to this game.

I gave up on Colony 6 after getting everything to Level 3. Juju is a little bitch; you can't tell me he has to have some rare-ass dinosaur tooth to rebuild the city, he's probably selling it.  :maf

Yeah the difficulty skyrockets for levels 4 and 5. Those quests and the

[close]
quests can kiss my ass. The Colony 6 level 4 quests are even more insulting because some of the items are only found in areas that you probably are locked out of by the time you know you need them (although you can still get them by trading). Also this game has a trading mechanic that I pretty much only used to avoid grinding random drops on stupid sidequests and never felt compelled to use otherwise. It makes the gem crafting system actually feel useful and important (which I guess that one is for super bosses).

The last boss was pretty boring and I didn't even use my primary party for the first two phases. My character levels were between 88 and 91, and the second to last boss was level 80, the final boss was has its level hidden. The general curve is 3-5 levels above is challenging but doable, 3-5 levels below is not worth your time. Over 5 levels above is pretty much impossible unless you can topple lock it. Just an absurdly inconsistent game, which I guess is what should be expected from the people behind Xenogears and Xenosaga.

Bloodborne - it was ok. Unless Elden Ring significantly changes the formula I am kind of done with Souls games.
Darksiders - it was ok. Art style was like 80% of the reason I finished this.
Monster Hunter World - fucking amazing.
Resident Evil 3 Remake - great. We need more short and replayable games like this.

July 2020 games

Syndicate - absolute shit story but pretty fun to play.  Loved the apps and the dart overlay (basically wall hack as a gameplay feature)

Saints Row the Third - started this in coop with a friend years ago and decided to play all the way through finally, tons of fun just ridiculous and over the top all the way around. 

Minecraft Dungeons - very basic dungeon crawler, fairly easy even on apocalypse difficulty.  Was fun to play through but doubt Iíll ever think about it again.

Dungeons and Dragons Daggerdale - very janky dungeon crawler, 3 of the 4 classes were fun to play, fighter sucked ass.  Repetitive side quests and main story is pretty bad.

Dead Space 2 - Cool game, the base gameplay loop and aesthetics are super solid in this series. Except that they turned the silent protag into a super generic white PS360 guy, which is just ::) all around. No idea why I've waited almost a decade on this sequel though. I think because everyone said it was more action like RE5, but here in this series it really isn't that drastic of a change. Even if a little less linearity would've been appreciated, the level- and encounter design is good enough to make up for it.

Mighty Gunvolt Burst - :bow :IntiCreates. Still doing the best Megaman games, even if this was a little convoluted with all the subsystems.

Mario Kart 7, replay - I forgot how much more fair this was balanced after the mess that was MKWii. Still too many blueshells, but in singleplayer you can usually predict them easily at least.

The final few bosses in New Dawn were really damn terrible. For the two sisters I just called up a buddy with a car and ran them over with the car since it breaks the health system. Total slog otherwise, like the final boss. Fuck gear levels.

Super Neptunia RPG (PS4)
Death End Re;Quest (PS4)
Death End Re;Quest 2 (PS4)

I liked DERQ 2 the most. SNRPG was just trash, DERQ was interesting but kind of a mess, DERQ 2 was less ambitious than the first but a better overall experience. I got bored with SNRPG and DERQ so I didn't bother trying for the Platinum (both of which are pretty easy), but I am gonna get the DERQ 2 plat. Just need to do a quick NG+ run and clear the battle arena.

Edit: Got the plat. Time for some Jet Girls.

I have been working too much this year. I havenít been playing World of Tanks since last year, which was the previous reason I never finished other games. I havenít been running tabletop role-playing games either.

So itís just the overtime go over of WFH that has led to me only now being on the last mission of Spider-Man.

The Forest - Minecraft clone with a tasteless setting, but friends wanted to play it. Actually though exploration design is pretty good in this compared to AAA open worlds.

Onimusha - Ninja Gaiden plus Resident Evil, is good (even if not in the same class as the either of the other two). Except one or two pretty bad puzzle spots - and I actually advocate for puzzles in these titles.

Legend of Kage 2 - pretty cool action platformer, somewhat reminiscent of original Shinobi. Boss patterns are fun to figure out and overall it's definitely a hidden gem. Controls could be a little tighter though.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Rings of Fate - No idea what that subtitle even refers to  :doge Good action RPG with only 10 hours in length :lawd The level design gets pretty complex in its puzzles down the line, which is good. The only bad part is that they went overboard with the touch screen gimmicks.

Streets of Rage 4 - Plays great, as if you took off the training weights after SoR2. Lots of stage variety. Looks very good. Tasteful fan service. Many high points with the music, even though there's some lows that are lower than anything in the originals, unfortunately. But that might just be its only blemish (and higher difficulties frustrating me from time to time). Surprisingly great revival all around.

Finished Spider-Man main story and the first of 3 DLCs. Not sure if I want to keep going. The gameplay in the DLC is more challenging than the main story's but it's also not as well-tuned (Screwball and her challenges can DIAF), or deep (stopping Maggia crimes have no additional conditions, so it's just a bash-fest).

Not sure what I want to move on to next: re-start or re-join RDR2, or maybe wrap-up SUPER-HOT and its VR version.

Had a shit August, only played Killer Instinct, Halo: MCC, and crown hunted in Iceborne, had a much better September though

Full completions(1000gs)

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, that bitch namielle finally gave up the large gold crown
Modern Warfare

Partial completions(finished story mode but not all achievements)
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
Marvel Avengers, have a few hives to get the full completion but Iím doing them as I do daily missions for Polychoron so itíll be done soon enough
Sunset Overdrive

I really enjoyed the campaign for Tomb Raider, combat was fun and the climbing and shit wasnít annoying at all.  I liked the Metroidvania aspect of upgrades unlocking new areas in previous locations as well.  Definitely gonna keep an eye on a good deal for Shadow in the future.

Sunset Overdrive is absolutely bonkers and fantastic.  Great weapon variety and once I got the hang of traversal it became a ton of fun to grind, bounce, and dash around the world killing OD and robots.  Might even give chaos squads a try and see if anyone still plays.

Avengers campaign was real solid if not entirely predictable.  Enjoyed the set pieces and the characters play differently enough that I got 5 of the 6 to level 50.  Havenít fucked with the Hulk much yet but might in the future.  Got Ms. Marvel to max power level and Thor is almost at the soft cap for gear, the rest are around 100 power and there isnít currently an incentive to grind them out so Iíll leave them for now.  Saving up the daily currency for dlc characters.  Canít wait for Kate Bishop cause I love playing archers so hopefully sheís got a fun power set.

Bomberman Tournament - Zelda clone with Bomberman. Making Bomberman powerups into Zelda-collectables makes a surprising amount of sense. Level design and puzzles aren't quite on the level of its inspiration, but still absolutely competent.

Streets of Rage - Finally beat the first game, even in the more challenging coop mode. It lacks a lot of the finesse of later entries, but all the series foundation is still there. Biggest turn off might be the overly challenging bosses that require extremely specific strategies for a very limited moveset.

Mario Galaxy, replay - I think I haven't touched this in a decade and still remembered most of it. Which speaks to its qualities. But take out the surprise factor of the game and it's far from the GOAT that first impressions made one believe. Still a high quality game, but for replays it's too easy and has too much fluff down the line.

New Mario Bros. Wii, replay - Probably the only game from this subseries you need to play. It's near identical to all the sequels, but at least it picks up the pace a little quicker and the helicopter is the only fun new power-up from these games.

Finished RE3.  Never played through the OG one back in the day.  The boss fight near the end with the big rail gun was satisfying.  I enjoyed the story, albeit kinda short, it was simple and to the point.  It was fun overall and didn't seem to overstay it's welcome... I still feel like it was definitely not a $60 premium game though..  When comparing it to the monster sized, fantastic dlc like Blood & Wine from Witcher 3 (that felt like a full $60 RPG in a $15 package), it's hard not to feel RE3 was a total rip off.  Throwing in that multiplayer mode does not make up for it.  I'm glad I've had a chance to play it though.  It plopped in nicely for my Halloween mood.  ...and this game probably even wouldn't have been considered if not for Jill mods.

Back to playing the vastly superior Bloodborne!

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim: This generation's MGS 2. George Kamitani is Hideo Kojima if he binged on Isaac Arthur videos instead of 80s action movies.

Forgot to mention:

Hades: Like Vanillaware above, I never really got into Supergiant's games until this one. Really fucking addictive. Intuitive and deep design, with simple, snappy mechanics. Second best game I played this year next to Doom Eternal.

I hope so but looking at Vanillaware's history, unless the game's Odin's Sphere it's probably not gonna be ported to multiple platforms.

November 2020 completions

100% completions:

Darksiders Genesis, really solid dungeon crawler.  Pretty much played strife exclusively and the different ammo types were fun to play around with.  The game still maintained some of the puzzle aspects of the earlier games though not as in-depth.  It also still had some platforming which did not translate well in a 3rd person dungeon crawler.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, waited for this to come to ea access when I was subscribed through late this year to play mass effect, anthem and dragon age and it finally arrived.  I really bought the hype and expected a souls games with a Star Wars skin and ended up pretty disappointed.  The souls mechanics felt shoe horned in and just not nearly as good as a souls game.  I did like being able to sit at a bonfire without automatically resting though, I could spend skill points without resetting the level which was nice.

Final Fantasy VIII remastered, havenít played through FF8 in years even though itís up there with 7 as my favorite ps1 final fantasy.  I was surprised that I still remembered so much about the game, even where to find most of the rare triple triad cards.  3x speed booster was nice cause the game could definitely be slow these days, especially when drawing a bunch of magic.

Code Vein, not completed but will be finished tomorrow when my friend and I grind out the last coop medals we need.  3 playthroughs and we only got ~100 out of 400 medals for the achievement.  Code vein unashamedly ripped off dark souls even down to a few of the levels themselves.  Cathedral of the Sacred Blood tried soooo hard to be Anor Londo and failed miserably.  Though outside of that level the game was pretty enjoyable and I liked that all you need to do to switch builds is change your gear and blood code instead of needing to respec.  Definitely easy as far as souls games are concerned but still had a good time playing through.
