The art style in the opening town was weird, but I liked it. It was like a weird blend of 50s America, 19th century Paris and rural Japan, but it worked. Now I just appear to be beating the gooseberry fool out of Pokemon with a stick, which is oddly satisfying.


But how lovely is that overworld :wub:

I strawberry floating loved that game - Ghibli feels all over the place. I can't bring myself to uninstall it from my PS3.

Played inFamous 2nd Son for about 2 hours yesterday and getting into this now. When I started it certainly felt a bit different to the other two but now I've got to the city, the old feel of inFamous is back (helped I suspect by aquiring more powers). The biggest differences for me is that the movement feels much more fluid and that they've made all the collectibles easier to find (which TBH, is a welcome change).

Yes?

Breakdown's great for playing for an hour or so at a time, I love how you actually have the mad panic for survival at the beginning; the core game is almost too safe at the start.

I also downloaded Skyrim to play last evening to play but by the time I'd installed the high res textures, unofficial patches and basic necessary mods it was 3am :fp:

Restarted Skyward Sword after my previous save was lost. Didn't realise how far I'd got into it.
Also playing Super Mario Bros 2 on the 3DS, Mario Kart 8 and Super Metroid whenever I switch the SNES on - although I'm pretty lost in that now

Xcom Enemy within. Bloody hell this is tough. I've beaten the standard game on ironman on PS3 but this is really kicking me. Just when things were going ok I lose a council mission as Civvie I was escorting gets sniped. I lose UK funding and the world is starting to panic. I have no weapons bar 1 laser rifle and not enough alloy to make more, spent loads on satellites to reduce panic managed to get things back on track.

THEN.... strawberry floating rebel humans show up and gooseberry fool on my plans. My undercover op goes badly wrong and I fail to secure the transmission data. Now they take a chunk of my funding.

Had another council mission with Zombies and Chrysallids, lose my best soldier on second round. Triggered an airstrike then ran like hell to the Evac point. Each round the enemy numbers got bigger and closer to over running me. Had to sacrifice a heavy to stay and fight buying time for rest to get to safety.

So I lost 2 Majors in one mission and my next best soldier is injured. Dark day in Xcom mission but barely have time to mourn before a UFO attacks, barely manage to down it (interceptor critically damaged)

Next mission and the sectoids have strawberry floating Armour suits that would make Tony Stark weep....

I feel its spiralling out of control.

XCOM was way too stressful for me. I never did finish it.

Worst part about playing a game of XCOM with all the content is the strawberry floating slingshot DLC, everything else can be delayed or avoided once you know how to; except Slingshot which rushes you into two costly back2back missions.


In Skyrim news I'm the furthest I've ever got into the main plot, which is 3 missions in! :lol: Also it's not as bad as in Oblivion but they could have at least tried to make Vampirism good enough to bother with in the vanilla game, all the powers/bonuses force you to play some weird stealth mage combo which suits almost no character I've ever played.

At least the wanky transformation stuff in the expansion adds something but then they go and give the non-vampire faction the nicer looking gear

Persona 3 Portable - Its starting to get a bit monotonous thanks to the dullness of the dungeons/tower, I gone through over 100 floors now and the scenery has changed twice .

I've only seen roughly 35% of the 170 different 'Personas' but aside from looking different they're all just variations of 12 different types with almost the same moveset.

Added Beyond Two Souls to the list of games I'm playing. Bit of a shaky start and some of the dialogue and pacing is a bit clunky, but getting quite into it now.

“But I don't want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can't help that,” said the Cat: “we're all mad here".

Newfoundland :dread: I think the best upgrade I've ever brought into that level was a few laser rifles. I'm always really under-equipped.

Given up playing Pixel Junk Shooter Ultimate on Vita. I've reached the mine or something and it's just boring me to tears now. May carry on with it on PS4. Moved on to Fez on Vita for now and that at least will occupy me thanks to its mind bending scope. I hope.

Got to Chapter III on Witcher 2 now, the choices doesn't seem matter too much in Chapter II but the story is still pretty great, can't wait to see what happens next.

Seeing as though the PS3 is still waiting for a new HDD and the PS4 has no games I started a new game of Onimusha 3 on the PS2 last night.

I don't know why they don't just have Jean Reno speak English instead of having a bad American actor, or even have a Japanese voice actor for Samanosuke, small issue but it winds me up.

The game is still really bloody good though, it's been about 10 years since I last played this game so I don't remember a lot of what happens so it feels quite fresh.

Having recently gone through the Maximo games it made me realise that Capcom in that generation were God tier.

I managed to get a couple of hours in to Panzer Dragoon Saga at the weekend and it's just fantastic. The only complaint I've ever really read is that it's a bit short - but I prefer short and sweet at the minute because I'm not finding tons of time to play. The battle system works perfectly. I feel like you could clean up the graphics (which are great for the Saturn), release it today and it would feel fresh.

Sadly it would have to be completely re-built from the ground up as the source code no longer exists, the Japanese were bloody awful at source control.

I always thought that Onimusha 3 was the best one, even with those awful Michelle bits. What a game.
