bioshock inf 2nd dlc - a bit of a let down, elizabeth's story is so muddled and confusing.
orcs must die - this game is pretty fun!

bnw, Wednesday, 9 April 2014 16:50 (five years ago) Permalink

I (and, ostensibly, my girlfriend, who mostly only plays the pinball stuff I bought for her) just bought a PS3 a couple of months ago, which I'm completely new to aside from crashing helicopters into gas stations in GTA IV at my brother's. So I've been excitedly hoarding games, since this seems to be the sweet spot between when previous-gen system come way down in price and when they go out of print and skyrocket. But I'm trying to be restrictive in my playing so that I don't play eight million things at once and fail to fully appreciate the varied experiences.

Althought I was completely put-off by it at first (complicated tutorials maybe shouldn't take place in the middle of combat under cover of darkness), probably 75% of my game playing time of late has been devoted to Just Cause 2. So much addictive fun, and great for brief, post-work mayhem sessions. Strangely haven't read or heard a whole lot about it outside of ILG threads, so thanks for that, y'all. Prior to that, I was mostly sucked into Skyrim, which initially impressed and then subsequently overwhelmed me with its breadth. I mean, I'm level 25-ish and realized recently that I'd completed somewhere pretty far south of 10% of the core game, so it feels like a thing that could just go on forever. I'll return to it someday when I'm ready to really dig in.

Other stuff in my current rotation:
Fez (not hugely into platformers but I'm really digging it; music and design and use of color are aces)
Minecraft (kinda don't know exactly what to do with it yet, but it's cool to mess around with)
Arkham Asylum (not crazy about the combat, but maybe I'm just not used to it yet; the beginning of the Scarecrow encounter was amazing)
Where Is My Heart? (cute, cool concept, good for short bursts)
Portal (just started this...the rest of the Orange Box is backburnered for the time being)
Deadly Premonition (not terribly far into it; definitely bizarre as hell but I'm undecided just yet as to whether it's my kind of bizarre)
Prototype (love it to bits; I think I'm near the end so I've been sitting on it for a little while to prolong the love...although I do already have the sequel)
Resident Evil 3 (revisiting after 15 years; controls are for shit but I'm building up anticipation to RE4)
Walking Dead (only played the first episode thus far but it was great and I'm looking forward to more)

I also have a ton of stuff that I've played <15 minutes of (The Saboteur, Tomb Raider reboot, Marvel Ultimate Alliance) that I'm looking forward to jumping into more fully soon.

Kinda want to make a (sadly & ridiculously long) list of the stuff I've acquired and get recommendations of what to tackle next.

GTA5 in the evenings, still searching for those hidden items
Or Lego City Undercover on occasions.

Any other time I struggle to find time or energy to play anything else right now, I'm trying to design and develop my own games and I find that a struggle in itself.

Games that I *should* be playing anyway...

Pinball FX, really really should fire this up more often
Rayman, not even installed this yet
Red Dead Redemption (still not bothered to attempt the final mission)
Fallout3, embarrassingly never finished this either
Fuel, after having to purchase new PS3 I'll have to start all over again.
Just Cause 2, dropped off the radar a bit, dip into every now and again to get that 100% status
Minecraft/FTB, my only reason for not playing this more often is its just too daunting. In terms of time wasting goes this is the mother of all. FTB packs have basically kicked this game into mind blowing status imo.

picked up gta 5 again just to round off the epsilon missions. i was convinced there would be a big heist at the end of all of it, because ripping off the scientologists seemed to make sense and how else would i ever get the cash to buy the golf course etc. so the only one getting ripped off was me :( officially done with this game.

also just finished xcom enemy unknown which i loved to bits. besides it was just long enough to keep my interest through the whole thing.

not really sure what to go with next. ps+ gave me lots of options. i'll probably get going on tomb raider, as soon as i stop struggling to like pes2014.

Dude, FRACT OSC is out. It's fun, but giving me a lot of flashbacks to Myst, due to heavy puzzles with occasional symbolic language hints. You're exploring this long abandoned machine world and you restoring operation to a giant synthesizer that you wander around in.

dragon's dogma was good fun, at its best early before everything becomes too easy, so i encourage you to not progress the story at all until you have been everywhere. one of the best and most unique things it has are the giant wandering monsters that really felt like epic fights, at least until my gang quickly got OP'd. helps if you resist the temptation of the broken pawns that are available early.

"Finished" Portal and Fez, loved both. Seems like there's still aftergame stuff for me to do, which is cool.

I'm a good way into the first God of War, and I can't be sure but I think I might kinda hate it. The brutal waves of super tough enemies are awesome, and some of the puzzles are pretty good, but creating Indiana Jones-esque deathtraps with a shitty camera and sketchy controls was the fucking worst idea ever. I've wasted so much of my playtime on failing to kill everything onscreen within a set time before falling to my death or being crushed or sliced up by shit that I can barely see in front of me that it's kinda become a chore for me to continue. I might just be hating the PS2-ness of it, though.

I've been surprisingly digging a lot of arcade-y stuff that I've gotten cheap from PSN recently. Super Stardust and Wipeout took me a little while to get used to but they're amazing once I'm in the zone. Just got Retro/Grade, which I haven't played much but which has an awesome conceit (basically a rhythm game disguised as a shooter that runs in reverse). The Space Invaders update also seems like good value.

This weekend, I hit 50% completion and the 100 hour mark near-simultaneously on Just Cause 2. Clearing a few areas in the game has become such a reliably perfect way to decompress at the end of the day.

xps I played GoW 1 for the first time... a year ago? Maybe two? Felt some of the same frustrations as you, but I'm still planning to truck on through to the others at some point. I can see how it all would've been far more impressive back in 2006, but some of those levels and dungeons are awfully designed.

What build you going for in KOTOR, Mordy?

Streets of Rage 3
Bare Knuckle III

So BKIII is the Japanese version of SOR3 and it is WAY easier. This does not mean it is easy though, it only means it is possible to get through stage 1 without using a continue. American version of Streets of Rage 3 is one of the more difficult games I've ever played.

i ended up waiting in line for more than an hour to play bloodstained and didn't get to try much else whoops. will write up some stuff later when i get home

ciderpress, Friday, 29 March 2019 21:42 (one month ago) Permalink

OK a pax capsule report:

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night - this is basically SotN given the Tropical Freeze "spectacle-platformer" treatment (i'm coining this term now that i have 2 games to use it with), i was worried going in because the movement in the preview footage looked kinda stiff but nope it put me right into the Castlevania Zone from the get-go, no friction there.

(aside: the same publisher also has Indivisible which is the valkyrie profile style sidescrolling RPG from the skullgirls devs. i watched a bunch of it while i was waiting in line for bloodstained and the character designs and combat look great as you would expect given the dev, but the out of combat / platforming part of the game looks kinda bland. this game's been in development for like 5 years and its flavor of hand-drawn backgrounds has kinda aged into normalcy i think)

Samurai Shodown - i only played one match of this but it felt just right and i'm on board and excited to learn it

Creature in the Well - the pinball hack and slash game from the nindies direct, this seems legit. the artstyle is really sharp and the controls are a lot simpler than i expected, i was fearing twin stick which i'm awful at but it's not.

Industries of Titan - sci-fi city builder/real-time-with-pause strategy game from the necrodancer devs. had my eye on this some years back because i liked how the city scenes looked so i'm glad it seems to be coming out. hard to get a handle on how well this sort of game plays in the expo setting though i kinda wish it was more sim city and less RTS

Sayonara Wild Hearts - finally got to see exactly what this is, which is basically just an extremely stylish 'endless runner' or 3d sonic type game. there's a bunch of different scenes/perspectives but you're mostly just zooming along a track and/or dodging stuff to music. i'm fine with this but it's not something i'm super psyched about

Super Crush K.O. - nice little warm-colored sidescroller beat-em-up with really good feeling moves/combos.

Evergate - nice looking puzzle platformer with some sort of line up crystals with stuff to zap them and catapult yourself around mechanic i dunno i didn't actually play this one but it looked good enough in motion when i walked by it that i snapped a pic of the otherwise unmemorable name

Keen - cute puzzle-tactics game that puts the 'when you move you keep going until you hit a wall' mechanic through a workout, turning it into almost like a turn-based combat system. this seems to have 0 buzz compared to all the other stuff i looked at today and is ungoogleable thanks to commander keen but i was really digging what it's trying to do.

Replaying Skyrim for the 1st time since 2012.

The overworld is still gorgeous but showing its age, the faction questlines and individual dungeons are still way too linear. What I want for Elder Scrolls VI is the sense of freedom from the overworld extend to these, and that means it will be possible that I won't experience every faction or every room in each dungeon every playthrough.

Everything about Skyrim except loot weights seems designed for "solo" exploration, with companions more likely to congest narrow corridors or get lost than to contribute. I still like the idea of "conducting" engagements, debuffing enemies, buffing allies, forcing the enemies to commit, sneaking to their rear for the coup de grace. I believe it could work in a 1st person open world RPG, and wouldn't mind if VI borrowed some ideas from Dragon Age: Origins in giving players scripting options for their NPC companions.

I like to revisit Myst every so often--so I just finished that up. Every time I play through, I forget how absolutely obnoxious the underground sound spaceship is to play--it's long and unnecessary, especially considering you have to do it twice if you want to get both pages.

As a result, I purchased Riven (the sequel to Myst). I am having a lot of trouble getting into it--it seems a lot more contrived than Myst does, and quite a bit more confusing in a maze-like sort of way. The original Myst is simple: you're in a hub, from which you can access multiple worlds with contained sets of puzzles. With everything more interconnected in Riven, I have a really hard time understanding how to get between places, what puzzles affect what areas, and so on. I kind of gave up without putting more than like an hour or two into the game.

Aside from that, I've had a Vive for a bit--I love VR, and wish I had more space in my 1br apartment for it. I bought Skyrim a while back and modded it out, but didn't feel super great about it in VR. Might have to pick it up and give it another go. Still waiting on that triple-A VR title to come out that's going to absolutely blow me out of the water.

Still waiting on that triple-A VR title to come out that's going to absolutely blow me out of the water.

i think a lot of people are waiting on that. unfortunately for me i don't think i'll ever be able to play VR because my dog and cat are very present in my life, and i would definitely trip over them within 5 minutes of my VR-at-home experience

I don't think most people will ever want to have VR goggles on for very long. That limits the sorts of games that can be successful until the experience becomes less cumbersome.

Tilt Brush by Google is still the only VR app I've tried that really made me want to keep the headset on for a while. Design software in VR makes much more sense to me than AAA games do.

i got Prey as part of a cheap bundle with Dishonored 2 (which was fine). Prey was ok! clever-enough plot twists in the story, great location, loved the retro-future 60s space age design of everything. zero-g exterior stuff was scary and fun. the first half, when you're powerless and it's much more of a sneak/monster horror/mystery type game, is better than the finale.

goole, Tuesday, 23 April 2019 20:50 (four weeks ago) Permalink

riven is the genre's single masterpiece imo, worth sticking to next time you feel like giving it a shot. otm that it is more interconnected, its puzzle environments no longer sealed off from each other, and probably harder for this; but it strikes me as the opposite of less contrived-- puzzles arise from the always semi-plausibly-imagined machinery and systems of the archipelago all having broken down just so, and from your initial lack of comprehension of the inhabitants' numerals and symbols. myst is a game where a guy has hidden his password in the constellations on a planetarium roof. in case he forgets it?

riven lives up to channelwood.

ooh, what is the alchemy system in Lulua like? I hated the more recent tetris shape ones.

its not the tetris grid, its got a 4-element system. i haven't played the dusk games but i think it might be similar to one of those?

ive only plyaed the first hour though so maybe it gets more confusing

ok that sounds better at least. I'm just waiting for the original Trilogy to get an eshop sale tbh.
trying to wean myself off a dangerous Lumines addiction atm, was starting to see blocks dropping when falling asleep etc.

ive still never cleared the standard mode in lumines though i got into the 90s recently for the first time. the song that starts at level 80 kills me on a good chunk of runs

My last Lumines run was my best, I forget where I got to though. Closer.

I've only cleared standard once, countless other runs got in the 90s and fallen apart. Now I just stick to the Endless mode that unlocked.

i love the 'i hear the music in my soul' track that has the extremely slow tempo/clear speed that's always the highlight of every run

oh yeh that's a cracker, v Daft Punk. think the only track I dislike is the one on the white and brown bubbles stage, has a kinda grunge riff?
