What Games Are You Playing?

Frostpunk

I dabble in city management games occasionally, but this is the first one that I've stuck with throughout a full campaign. For starters, you can finish the initial scenario in about ten hours, so it doesn't outstay its welcome. That campaign is well paced so you always feel like you're making progress, but struggling. It presents you with some interesting ethical choices: whether to force children to work, provide palliative care for the gravely ill, lead with an even hand or set yourself up as a religious despot, etc. I also liked that there was no warfare to deal with; I always find it tedious when that's slapped onto a city management game, as in some of the later Settlers titles. Also, its central concept of coping with the temperature as much as resource management gave it an interesting spin. It was a weird experience playing this during the hottest week of the year so far; I was trying to stop my citizens freezing in Frostpunk while trying to stop myself roasting in real life.

I believe it's currently free on the Epic store, and it's well worth grabbing.

So since my Windows “reset” took vanilla Skyrim with it, I decided to start fresh and mod the crap out of it, since I’m less concerned about screwing it up than I am my SE install.* However, Vortex is seriously ticking me off due to the fact I can’t simply overwrite files like I can with manual installs and it doesn’t seem to bother to ask me which meshes or textures I want to use if there’s more than one, so currently everyone’s bodies are invisible and I can’t really understand why given that the conflicting mods are both happily installed on my SE with no issues (aside from the dreaded neck seam, but I’ve just learned to live with that). What was supposed to be fun has turned into work. I bring this on myself.

*given all the pricey “remasters” of games these days, some only a few years old, it really was awfully nice of Bethesda to just give everyone who owned the original a copy of the SE for free, but it also makes me very disinclined to pay for things like the Mass Effect and Life is Strange remasters

I completed Spider-Man: Miles Morales but gonna play through it again on New Game+ for that Plat trophy cos it's part of the main requirement this time (and also some other trophies don't trigger until you're in a New Game+ as well)

I got the Platinum trophy for Spider-Man: Miles Morales so that's another game compete.

Up next on the PS4 is the Re:Zero game. I'll probably watch s2 after I complete it, it's been on the backburner for a while.

XCOM: Enemy Within

Between the original Enemy Unknown and this expansion pack, I must have played through this 30-hour campaign at least eight times now. I think it's the best version of the Firaxis turn-based strategy series, since it adds much-needed extra maps and variety to the base game. I think it's also the best tuned in terms of combat pacing. These games can be brutal, especially on higher difficulties, so in Enemy Unknown it was normal to play defensively, due to it having permadeath. Enemy Within pushes you to be more aggressive by having valuable resources on the maps that expire if you don't collect them in a few turns. It's not mandatory, but you need it to unlock the new cybernetic weapons and genetic manipulation that let you turn your vulnerable soldiers into alien-slaying monsters.

XCOM 2 pushed everything too far: too much frantic rushing around, soldiers that are injured too easily and take too long to recover, etc. I found XCOM 2 an annoying experience the one time I played through the vanilla version. I don't normally mod games, but I modded the hell out of that one to make it play more like Enemy Within, and it's much improved as a result. Enemy Within needs no mods; it's one of my top five favourite games of all time.

Scarlet Nexus (Demo Version)

Yes, I caved to all the adverts on ANN. Having said that I did enjoy what I've been able to play so far and I think I will get the full game. I suspect that my autism somehow makes this "brain punk" element more attractive to me.

I enjoyed the demo as well, so will be ultimately picking up in the coming weeks as well (provided it doesn't bomb in the reviews anyway).

I got the platinum for Tekken 7 earlier. I'm not very good at fighting games, but I had fun with this - the trophies were pretty reasonable too!

I'm also most of the way through Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which is awesome.

I got the Ratchet platinum, so now I'm going through Sakura Succubus 2 - it's a very simple visual novel (I really liked the first one), so it won't take long!

Having finished another play through of the PS4 edition of Final Fantasy VII, I’m now playing through Horizon Zero Dawn which has been fun so far.

Taking break from retro games and my main project currently is Hades. Currently i have made it once to start of tier 4. Managed to make it to boss of tier 3 without dying once but i was down to my last life afterwards.

Like JAKEMAN's "What music are you listening too?" but instead "What games are you playing?"...

I am currently playing Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords. Its really good and has got me playing on my Xbox again, cuz I haven't been playing on it for a while.

So what is everyone else playing?
Im on ps4 playing horizon zero dawn and spiderman

I may not be the biggest gamer but I did enjoy this and at only 21 hours for me do to a play through it's not a massive time sink either.

Completed Game #14 | Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory (PS4)

Released last year, Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is a music rhythm spin-off (but still canon) to the ridiculously over-convoluted franchise. The game is basically all about hitting various enemies on-screen to the beat of the rhythm for a specific soundtrack or song from each Kingdom Hearts release, from the 2002 game all the way to Kingdom Hearts III. There are roughly 140-150 songs in total and each one lasts mostly around 2 mins.

World Tour is where you will want to spend time unlocking songs as you go along and once you reach the end, you unlock new story segments that continue after the events of Kingdom Hearts III ReMIND. The content is small but acts as a crucial element to where the next story saga is heading (and what they revealed is literally taking notes from Star Ocean: Til the End of Time and it's insane). The journey is actually pretty well-paced if you are mainly going through a song on one difficulty at a time, but I decided to spend additional time earning all of the challenges to help complete the trophy list since it requires finishing each song on all difficulties.


I played through the whole of World Tour on Beginner mode but did go through roughly 40% of the songs on Standard & Proud mode along the way. The gameplay is split into three parts; the main core element is your trio (Sora, Donald & Goofy, or the characters from Birth by Sleep, 358/2 Days and Riku & his Dream Eaters from Dream Drop Distance) hitting enemies using L1, R1 or X (you can use any of the three to hit a single enemy - so don't worry if an enemy is on the left lane as you can hit it with X or R1 for example), jumping to avoid obstacles or hitting flying enemies (using Circle followed by attack), or gliding to grab the green notes (holding Circle). This is roughly a majority of what the gameplay is like.

The second part is called a Memory Dive where you are automatically gliding, but you need to use the analog sticks for specific notes. There are also some notes where you have to hold the button and let it go at the end of its path. Other than that, the rest is very similar by using L1, R1 & X. The third is the disappointing part where the game doesn't provide enough songs dedicated to it and that's the Boss Battles where it's very similar to Memory Dive but the lanes are side-ways and there are segments where you have to hit the notes successfully otherwise you'll get damage from the enemy. It's pretty fun but only very few songs use this feature.

Outside of World Tour, you also have a Versus mode against the AI and the option to play all of the unlocked tracks you earned from the main campaign. You will also need to synthesis to unlock more songs in a similar fashion to the mainline games using gems, crystals etc. There's also no punishment for using additional items like HP items, EXP Boost and King Mickey assisting you along the way.


World Tour will take roughly 15 hours playtime if you are aiming to unlock all of the challenges and songs for the game. There's also an additional 15 hours playtime if you plan to finish all of the trophies including the 100,000 enemies defeated which is a grind-fest and unless you're very good at Dark Domination and Wave of Darkness on Proud mode, you will be spending a very long time on that trophy. Other than that, the game is fairly easy to Platinum since you only need to full chain (hit all notes without missing) about 50 of 150 songs on each difficulty which is easier than you think as there's tons of variety for the difficulty.

Overall Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is a very enjoyable game and especially if you are a fan of the franchise. I do think that the game is worth owning at a discount price which is what I did as I waited until it was £19.99 before picking it up. The game is available to own physically and digitally on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, as well as digitally on Xbox One and Epic Games Store.

Completed Game #15-17 | Time Crisis: Razing Storm, Time Crisis 4 Arcade Ver., Deadstorm Pirates (PS3)

Not long ago I recently acquired Time Crisis: Razing Storm, a collection of light gun games which were packaged together in one PS3 release. These games each have different mechanics and concepts but the general gameplay are similar.

Razing Storm is a spin-off of Time Crisis which you control a soldier who can also use a shield and a whole bunch of assault weapons. The game is split into two modes; the Arcade mode which has four stages with the last one only unlockable if you can beat the missions that are in the third stage - which were very hard if you are using the controller by the way. You can progress through the arcade with unlimited continues which is useful at least. Other than that the story is basically non-existent in that mode which is why you have the other mode called Story mode which is actually a first-person shooter.

The FPS gameplay is not great to be honest, without the ability to be able to aim more accurately it feels very rough and the difficulty is surprisingly tough so I had failed numerous times progressing through the story. Also you can't jump which is a weird experience and it uses motion controls for cover which doesn't work very well. Overall length for this campaign was about 4 hours which is alright at least.

Time Crisis 4 Arcade version is basically the arcade mode for Time Crisis 4. Time Crisis 4 was released for the PlayStation 3 back in 2007/2008 era but this re-release offers support for the PlayStation Move controller. While I have been using the DualShock controller (as I don't own either the Move or Camera devices), it actually plays really well and you can progress through the whole game without thinking to yourself "I wish I had that Move controller". Obviously the Move controller would be a much better experience, the DualShock controller does the job very well.

The game has 3 big stages and through Free-Play mode, it starts off with a limited amount of continues and everytime you get a game over, you unlock an additional continue slot which if you rinse and repeat you'll eventually unlock 9 continues and 9 health bars which will make the experience much better. You can also choose between the two main characters which play the game route but have slightly different angles which changes the experience a bit.

Then we have Deadstorm Pirates, another Namco light gun game that actually has some really cool ideas presented. In addition to your usual shooting gameplay, you also have scenes where you need to rotate the wheel on the screen using your Analog stick to avoid obstacles or control a boat which was pretty cool. The Arcade mode has five stages with four of them you can choose at any order.

The setting feels more similar to SEGA's House of the Dead than it does to Namco's Time Crisis, as you will have moments where you need to hit an enemy at a certain weak point within a short time window. Unfortunately playing this game with the DualShock controller is not that great compared to Razing Storm and Time Crisis 4. You will get a much better experience if you had access to a Move controller or GunCon.

Overall the Time Crisis: Razing Storm collection is worth picking up if you find one for cheap as it's going up in value in the US it seems. I don't believe the collection is available on the PlayStation Store so you'll have to make do with the physical version which is exclusive to PlayStation 3. If you have a Move controller, you will love this.​

Re:Zero The Prophecy of the Throne

Done the first play through. I may or may not bother trying to get all the trophies I missed. But anyway, this was a really fun game. Yes certain elements of the story are pretty obvious but it was still fun to see how everything actually pieced together and there were still some surprises along the way.

The game is mostly visual novel with a few RTS style mini missions along the way that were fun little puzzles to solve. The games greatest strength is its large and varied cast that make all the scenes a lot of fun to see play out.

I may not be the biggest gamer but I did enjoy this and at only 21 hours for me do to a play through it's not a massive time sink either.
I struggle to fit in video games these days but as a fan of the series I've been wondering if it's worth the time & money. Would you recommend this as a must have for fans, or would you say it's not essential to following the story overall?

So I've only seen season 1 so cant be sure. But the impression I got is that it's a one and done storyline. It's written in a way that it is important but as the story is resolved by the end, missing it probably isnt the worst thing. They've also left it in a way that they could bring back some ideas and characters in future if they wanted to.

Although like I said it is a relatively short game and if you enjoy the characters and their world I'm sure you'd enjoy it.
