I just picked up The Sexy Brutale for $25. It was half price. I only looked into it recently and to my extreme joy, it's similar to some of may faves like Chulip and Gregory Horror Show. It also has that quirky Grim Fandango/The Nightmare before Christmas feel. I won't be playing it until a bit later because I have other stuff but I'm really looking forward to it.



Also bought Velocity 2x recently which is high scoring greatness, Nex Machina physical from Limited Run, and waiting for GoW collection in the mail.

For 3DS I grabbed Luigi's Mansion 2 and Starfox 64. Haven't touched any of this stuff yet. I think I'll save it all for Christmas.

As for plans, got Okami PS4 on the 12th, and I'm also adding Loco Roco 1&2 to that order. For those who don't know, they were originally on PSP. I used to have the first one and loved it. Here's the PS4 trailer.

Still waiting for EW2. I'll likely get GoW Ascension, PSP GoW PS3 versions and GoW3 PS4 version(I have the PS3 copy already).

I mentioned considering getting Darksiders soon. Well, one of my friends has both on PS4 so he's going to let me borrow the first one. If I end up really liking it I'll buy it, but honestly I don't think I will.

Sexy Brutale is pretty cool.

I'm not planning on buying any new games recently... I've gotten a bit jaded with triple-A lately. Meanwhile, I have a big pile of weird & lesser known PS2 games and PS3 games just waiting to be tried out...

I also dont find much of the recent stuff worth my time. I spend most of my time with PS2/PS3 or other older consoles.

Wow that title takes me back, was one of the first PSN titles I bought. Really fun twin-stick shooter! Especially with co-op!

I didnt even know it was made by Housemarque. I love Nex Machina, Resogun and Matterfall. Will try Alienation when I have time.

As for DN, I played through on normal and only died a few times mist due to that big blade handed guy because I had no idea he was just ahead.

The game loves to send a horde at you from the front to try to get you to focus on them, then sends another from behind. I'd be dead a billion times over if it wasn't for flares and landmines.

Okami HD and Loco Roco 1&2 are due to arrive any day now. I plan to get RE7 Gold Edition too but for some reason I can't find it here even though it's past its release date. My guess is the stores here are hiding it because they have the vanilla RE7s on discount for the Christmas sale. Dodgy pricks.

I need to get into NG properly.

Bought Wipeout Omega Collection and Metroid Samus Returns. Both were on sale.

I'm not a huge racing game fan, but that's only if they're realistic or boring. I like the ones that are crazy with weapons and stuff like Mario Kart or Crash Team Racing.

Never actually got into Wipeout before. I've played the original but back then didn't care for it. The collection looks amazing with huge replay value, There's tons of unlockables and stuff but mainly the skill required and online if it's still active.

Also bought the Pikmin amiibo for the 3DS game. Will buy the actual game later.

Sit your ass down, and play it. You don't have to do challenge runs or whatever, and games like Ninja Gaiden promote item use, and you should use them, so just have fun. It's a really fun game to play, even today. Just toy around with the weapons, the abilities and the items and enjoy one of the best action games still to grace our consoles to this very day.

I played this like 2 years ago and found it decent. I like how each character had a unique gameplay element.

Never finished it though, and at this point I have zero idea what's actually going on in the story. Don't know what those ooze things are.

Back then I noticed it had a bit of DLC. Was there ever a complete edition?

Yes, a complete physical edition exists with all the DLC.

The lanky black monsters are ouroboros experiments from said virus samples that the villain of Revelations 2 has.

What's Raid mode all about? I never played that mode. I saw a video though an it looks like some kind of RPG mode with level ups and loot.

Think mercenaries, but then that you can level up your character, weapons and other things to just keep the addiction going. You unlock new areas, enemies can get really weird random buffs (like elements, or speed boosts etc) and more. Very addicting and really puts the combat first which is awesome.

You can just keep playing, some of the harder missions will have you praying for ammo and running away in fright of this way too strong enemy (missions are timed) while others see you powerhouse through. But the harder ones do give better rewards.
The grind isn't really there, you just play and play and feel rewarded for keeping on going.

Never. Havent tried it yet but looked at some vids it seems like a mini version of WW. You have the boat and character design. Only difference is the camera when running around.

Put down a deposit for Sekiro a few days ago. Gonna collect it next Friday and become a hermit for the weekend with it. Assuming it's good, that is. The little gameplay I've watched looked promising, though.

I just bought Haunting Ground as well as Chaos Legion thanks to the very positive word of mouth around here. Always nice to snag cheap copies of older cult classics I've missed out on.

Not sure when I'll get around to play either one, but I'm keen.

I saw Darkest Dungeon something edition on clearance. Thinking of grabbing it. From what I've seen, the combat system looks interesting but not if I'd stick with it.

Darkest Dungeon is really cool, but as an avid JRPG player, the game relies on rng too much to be enjoyed. Literally every fight can be ruined by rng. Even peons can roll the dice just right to fuck your whole party. It isn't well balanced and fun like in SMT games. Those games give you multiple ways to avoid the instant death spells. 100% escape items, items that can take the place of the spell and keep you alive, etc. I hope the sequel isn't a rougelike and just has a campaign. I love the art style and themes.

Recently a few games generated remote interest, but I doubt I'll actually like them.

One is Catherine, Senran Kagura Burst Renewal, Valkyria Chronicles 4, and Ys whatever it's called.

I just made a Japanese account because theirs has demos of ALL of these. The NZ PSN is absolutely embarrassing in its demo content. What on earth decides this? If a game has a demo, and a worldwide release, there's no excuse for its demo to not be available in every region.

From videos, I can tell Senran is a low quality anime fanservice action game. I'll give it a shot since there's a demo though.

I don't know what to think about Catherine. It looks bizarre and horrifying.

Birdman


Moderator
This looks interesting.

Birdman

After playing some demos, I can safely say I won't be touching Catherine or Ys.

Catherine made me feel creeped out and weird. Can't explain. I just feel disturbed now.
Ys feels too generic. I usually require some form of customization/builds if I'm going to play and RPG.

Senran actually isn't horrible. I thought it would be way worse than it is. It seems to be pretty much a Musou, but with really high mobility. Like you can wall run vertically and horizontally, and launch various attacks from there,  dash on the ground, and there's a double jump and air dash. As usual you only get one double jump per jump, and one air dash, but if you attack while in the air and connect, your air dash resets. I didn't test if the wall run resets everything. Probably does.

You can keep doing your air string as you fall, so I was able to stay hovering above a group constantly attacking and air dashing. At one point I connected with a wall and did the attack from there and came smashing down into a group clustered below.

Attacks are cancellable in their recovery so you're never stuck on the spot. There's blocking and a perfect parry that dizzies surrounding enemies. Block at the last second to do this.

The demo doesn't offer much in the way of attacks, but they seem to function similarly to Musou games with the light and heavy style dials.

The heavy results in a knockback or launch state depending on when you enter it in the combo, and pressing the dash button will do a homing dash towards the locked on enemy allowing you to air combo them. From there you have your double jump and air dash.

You have another form where they strip and put on some costume. I'm not sure, but this doesn't seem to be like DT or something that runs out. It changes your combos too. There are super moves but I didn't figure them out. Only played for like 15 mins and the whole thing is in Japanese.

One thing I didn't like is when an enemy is about to attack, there VR looking colored blocks appear on the ground. In addition to telling you that an attack come out, they also indicate the range. Not sure what the colors indicate. For example, the basic enemies in the demo had an orange indicator, but the boss had orange, and on one attack purple. It was this super Stinger type move where she dashes forward in a straight line, so a line of purple tiles appeared on the ground showing this.

Overall, it's pretty basic, but also kinda fun. I didn't really like the character I had to use, which was the only one available in the demo, but I saw in a video there's a character with a gun so she could be interesting. Wouldn't play full price for this game though.

There are some other demos of remote interest on the JP store. One was some anime action game called Black Clover, or it might have been Black Cat. Can't remember because it didn't look good. Still, I'll give any action game a chance though from experience, those anime games usually range from bad to average.

Definitely won't be touching God Eater 3. Played the demo and hated it.

Nier Automata has a GOTY but I've read it's just the physical disc with a code. No point if you own it already.

Looking into two 'Tales of' games on PS4.

Valkyria Chronicles 4 is my favorite game of 2018, for what it's worth. The game could have used a bit more polish and higher production values, but the gameplay variety is nothing short of amazing if you like TRPGs and the story also has some surprisingly powerful moments.

I never got into those games despite having them recommended to me from time to time, thanks to my Fire Emblem/ Xcom craze.

Downloaded the demos for SAO Fatal Bullet and Valkyrie Chronicles 4.

SAO is a basic shooter, but has builds, but seems very looty. It has coop and pvp, but I'm not interested in another huge multiplayer game. I have MHW. Looks like it might get boring fast too.

Playing VC demo now. Already having fun.

This VC4 demo is pretty good and goes for quite a while. I'm at the third battle now.

Feels exactly the same as VC1 from what I remember from the PS3 version all those years ago. I know there are new mechanics and shit though.

I got this one character whose class has some kind of mortar. It fires so far and the angle allows ypu to hit from ridiculous angles to the point that I'd almost call it unfair.

The character is slow though and when they want to fire they have to set up this contraption that takes about 5 seconds, all the while getting pelted by interception fire, so you should never launch from out in the open.

I bought the PS4 remaster of VC1 today for $28. Pre-owned but the condition is excellent.
