What game are you currently playing?

Recommended Posts

Started playing inFamous Second Son and Fallout 4.

As a someone who has played the previous inFamous games, with SS there is some very noticeable issues. First of all, even if Delsin has at the point where I currently am 3 different powers, I still think that Cole was much more versatile even at the halfway of inFamous 1. Maybe they should just had focused on one power instead of trying this whole absorbtion thing. Not to mention eletricity just looked better in my opinions and much easier to find sources of it. Secondly, apparently Delsin can't duck or switch shooting hand. Both mecanics are gone. Why? They both worked very well so why remove them?

Also this game is much harder than previous ones (and I usually play inFamous 1 and 2 on the hard, this I'm playing with medium). This is mostly because of Delsins lack of versatility, the enemies (basic enemies remind me much of Vermaak 88 form the second game, which were the last enemies you encountered) and the number of them. Not to mention bosses. While not bad they just feel step down from previous games mostly because of the camera which never focuses on them. Not even mentioning their attacks.

Currently playing Sonic Lost World. I just beat the story and I'm trying to collect more RSR. Zazz made me laugh at certain parts of the game so he's one of my favorite Zeti. Frozen Factory's music reminds me of older Sonic music and I like that.

Recently I've been play Destiny the Taken King, in my opinion the story is much better than the base game and both expansions, there's tons of quests to do, the new level cap is level 40, finding powerful gear to max out your light takes longer than one week (as a year one player I used to just go up to level 20 and tried to find gear to get to level 34) and the taken provide a more challenging experience, it is an amazing game.

Flipping between my Christmas stuff. Black Ops 3, Halo 5 and Asscreed Syndicate.

Black Ops 3 is rather fun, fresh lick of paint and the gunplay is as good as ever. The campaign is pretty solid too, Zombies is a bit confusing for my taste right now, and multiplayer is mmmmmmmmmmm. The map design is really well done, with an added sense of verticality due to the new movement options, the guns feel pretty solid. The Specialists are really interesting and each have their own spin on Abilities and Weapons, making each one good for something else; they're clearly meant to be like Heroes or Champions (i.e the characters from DotA and League) and provide a more eSports feel. Ruin might be very much rushdown-oriented with Gravity Spikes being a good room clearer and Overdrive being good for rushing in to get some heat, while Seraph is good for an Overwatch mindset, Vision Pulse has good range and the Sparrow is very clean to kill with. So yeah, Black Ops 3 is reallly good; whether it'll top Black Ops 2 for me? Remains to be seen, I've only played about 11 hours in MP and 36 hours according to my Exophase.

Halo 5 is good, I haven't much to say on it, since I've played it the least, but the gameplay is reaaaaaaaaaaaaally fun, Arena is a cool set of game modes, I love getting ranked. But Warzone is actually complete fucking shit, it's way too open for what it's trying to do and seriously kind of confusing to be honest. Warzone Assault is a much tighter and actually fun version to play, but maybe I'll try Warzone again.

Syndicate is fuuuuuuuuuuuuuun, but I doubt niggas will give it much of a chance due to Unity being a mess technically and that overshadowed the rest of the game so idek if Unity was good on its own merits.

Well I have been playing the first Sonic Riders for Gamecube a lot. I beat Story Mode a long time ago so I've been goofing off with the other modes. You know...survival mode, battle mode, trying to get better with the free races too but I've been sucking lately. I tend to gravitate toward the speed characters for some odd reason. I know you have to play 40 hours to get the final character unlocked, so I think I've got I don't know 32 hours maybe?

Small thing, but I really didn't like Shadows of Evil (BO3's current map on Zombies). Too close quarters, and getting too convoluted for it's own good. Good maps are generally open, while still being close, if that makes sense. It's basically each room has enough space to give you time to get around the zombies as long as they don't manage to corner you from both sides, while the map is still small enough that you can get to places and teammates relatively quickly should they be downed.

For Black Ops 3 though, the only other option is The Giant, and you only get that if you buy the Season Pass. It's a great map that shows off how good BO3 zombies can be, but it being a Season Pass exclusive is really iffy.

Jumped back into Bad company 2 on PC. I've been into this for a few weeks now. I enjoy a game or two on evenings. For me it is the best Battlefield  at the moment. I don't really enjoy 3 & 4. Sonic Generations. I love speeding through the levels and going for new records. Just got Lost World last week. Not sure if I like that much. It feels kind of sluggish. :-/

Been replaying Mario & Luigi: Dream Team on my sparkly New 3DS XL in preparation for Paper Jam and recently finished it. Had a blast and found myself not really bothered by problems I had with it on my initial playthrough. (The gyro controls for the Zeekeeper battle worked out WAY better for me this time around.) I even accomplished things I'd never gotten to on my first go round, such as reaching Rainbow Rank to partake in Broque Madame's premium gear and finally battling this little guy...

...to become champ of the Battle Ring shortly after!

So yeah, fun times. Definitely ready for Paper Jam!

Also beat Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures on 3DS (Fantastic little tribute to the show and pumped for the sequel) and the TMNT Movie game on 3DS. (Actually a really fun little brawler. Definitely a nice little change-up from the predominantly beat-em-up and plaformer-heavy TMNT video game library.)

Currently working on Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets. (Got the first Gemulet. Funny game so far!)

Playing Undertale again on True Pacifist Run before the uh...inevitable Genocide Run. I couldn't care less about the rabid fanbase surrounding the game, but gameplay, story and especially music-wise Undertale is great! I always find new, quirky things in this game to chuckle at and you can tell that a lot of care and attention went into making this game.

Just a warning, the game is very aware. That's all I'll say to avoid giving away spoilers.

Anyways the game I'm playing is Kirby Triple Deluxe. I've already finished the main story and I finished King Dedede's run. Now I'm playing through the Arena... why do I get the feeling I'm going to be unable to beat all the bosses?

UPDATE: I died by spinning off of the platform with the hammer on accident. What a pathetic way to go. -_-

Been playing Mario & Luigi Paper Jam Bros and Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash. Completed the main story of both, just going back to checkout any bonus stuff and collectables missed.

Attempted to challenge secret boss on M&L at level 37 with every bro...I thought I was doing pretty well...at first...took out my entire part with one attack. O_O

Loved the final boss on Chibi-Robo too. I hate using the word as it's overused but it genuinely felt epic. Also been playing Just Cause 3 and done almost everything and am starting to move onto Dragon Quest Heroes. I freakin' love Dragon Quest! :D 

And this game is no different. The main male and female protagonists (Who you can change the names of, if you wished.) are hilarious together. The guy over thinks, plans and talks, while the lady just wants to get in and bust some heads. LOL

I finished Paper Jam recently, so I'm just playing through a few more games in my enormous backlog before stuff like Bravely Second comes out; trying to grab some more of the achievements in the 3DS Steel Empire remake, inching forwards in my unbelievably long-term Shin Megami Tensei IV playthrough.  Oh yeah, I have Mega Man ZX Advent to finish, too; I think I'm up to the final stage, but I want to tie up a bunch of collectibles and sidequests as well.

Been playing the new Battlefront almost exclusively since it came out. People says it's lacking in content and all that in favor of DLC and stuff, but I'm still having a great time. It's just so fun I LoVOE IT !!

I play Sonic CD now (steam purchase). I used to have a copy of the US version but lost it. I simply love CD. I like that the levels are not very linear and I love how the music and level themes build up a very nice and unique atmosphere.

I've been playing Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate recently. Just finished the three-star quests in Moga Village and I'm gathering up more stuff to upgrade my armor and weapons. I've been using Dual Blades for awhile and yesterday I switched to the Gunlance to test it out. I had a blast fighting two huge monsters with it at the same time. So much to do.

Well, cross off another two - I finished ZX Advent earlier today, and also Steel Empire, though for the sort of game Steel Empire is then "finished" refers more to how many of the achievements you're resigned to never getting (I think I skipped four that were too hard for me).  It's an absolutely gorgeous game, but a steep as heck price; buy it, but buy it on sale.

Meanwhile, in Lufia: The Legend Returns, I'm halfway through the game, and also halfway through an Ancient Cave run, crawling boringly through at five floors per day.  Shin Megami Tensei IV has been going better since I finally got time to play it seriously and hit the interesting part, though.

I've been playing through Grim Fandango since it came out for PS+ members this month and it's a game I've really been meaning to play anyways. Loving the characters, story, and writing. I'm even trying to get all the achievements, but there's one achievement to play through the entire game with tank controls, which I did not turn on at first, so I'm going to be one trophy away from platinum, ah well.

Took a break from it to catch up on Gravity Falls before next month, but I'll jump right back into Grim Fandango as soon as I'm where I need to be.
