  1. Sky Clad Observer Steins;Gate I think this was a PS+ game one month. I started playing it after a repetitive strain injury had me "banned" from playing video games earlier this year, but then dropped it when my wrist improved again. I picked it up again yesterday while I'm stuck in bed sick and other games were giving me motion sickness type symptoms. I'm not sure if it's because it was taking my mind off of feeling awful but it sucked me right in. I didn't see a lot of the twists coming in this game and I fell in love with most of the characters. One scene made me so angry I ranted at my partner and considered dropping it altogether (if you've played it then it's a particular scene on Suzuha's end path), while others moved me to tears. I binged most of this game in the past two days and loved (almost) every second. Immediately jumped on Amazon and ordered Steins;Gate 0 - due tomorrow! 😊
  2. One True King Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom One of the best games I've played in a while. Funny, as I originally dropped it for three weeks around chapter 3 because I found it was getting a little boring. But once I got to the point where I was able to visit towns, participate in side quests, and develop Evermore I began having a lot more fun with it! 😊
  3. I had to serve the majority of them between 70-110 times (successfully) in the post-game in order to get all the recipes.
  4. Down to £40 from £55. 😊
  5. Agreed on Little Dragons Café. I'm pretty sure I tripled my playtime getting those last few recipes and it was just so utterly dull. I was too stubborn to just quit though. 😓
  6. Little Dragon's Cafe Cute game but boring as hell plat - I most have doubled (if not tripled) my playtime on this game just working toward the Recipe Collector trophy. 30th person on here to have stuck out the mind-numbing grind. While I enjoyed the game this sucked any replay value the game might of had right out of it. Time to put it on eBay.
  7. I preordered the digital collectors edition the day it went up! The preorder bonuses come out March 1st and include a pair of earrings that allow 30% experience increase on DoW/DoM up to level 70. I will so be making good use of those. Also early access from June 28th.
  8. First Valentines Day in 6yrs+ that I've been single. I played FFXIV online with my Dad, ate mac and cheese, and got an early night for today's 5am alarm. It's the day after Valentines Day and I spent my morning testing samples for chlamydia; I don't believe it was coincidence. 🙄
  9. First option is always the default name. If it's not stated directly in the game I'll Google it. I don't like using my name in games. I used to do so regardless of gender (my legal name can conveniently be broken down into 1 female and 2 unisex names) but after I started playing online games and visual novels with dating elements I decided I no longer felt comfortable in doing so. A couple of years ago I started using Senka (from "сенка" = shadow) on a whim when naming a cat in Nintendogs+Cats and it ended up sticking. Although the original was a male and now I use it mainly for female characters. I haven't named a male character in a while. I'm not really sure what I'd go with if I did. Maybe I'd just shorten Senka to Sen.
  10. I generally only look at other users profiles if I get the impression that we've similar tastes in games. Usually it's to see what they have played that I haven't. If the same games keep coming up on multiple users profiles then I look more into it to see if it's something I'd be interested in playing.
  11. Bringing Back Memories - Dead or Alive Xtreme 3: Fortune Marie Rose is too cute to be associated with the number of the beast. 😓
  12. Been this for about a year and a half now:
  13. Watched this last night. I wasn't expecting much from it and ended up loving it.
  14. I can't stand clutter so I only keep games I love and know I am highly likely to replay again, e.g. Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy games I'll forever return to. My Dad gets first dibs on any of my completed games (and vice versa) and if he's not interested I usually sell them on eBay. I've three friends I trust enough to return games if I lend them out - but usually if they're interested in something they will just buy it at launch.
  15. I don't usually buy gaming merchandise but this FFXIV Alphinaud minion figure was too cute to pass up. I realised after taking the pics that I hadn't inserted him properly into the base, oops!
  16. Memories Returned Amnesia: Memories Not my most impressive plat but I ended up enjoying this game a lot more than I thought I would. It's making me think I should go through my PS+ library and see if there are any other gems tucked away in there I've overlooked. I expected this game to be OTT sweet and cringe-y, and at times it was, but it took much darker turns than I expected and those turns were right up my alley. After playing through all the routes I learned that apparently most peoples favourite character (Kent) was the one I found utterly boring - which is amusing given that his story paralleled my own these past few months (STEM nerd trying to secure a position overseas). Everyone else was more fun and exciting and the crazier they behaved the more I enjoyed it. It was also a great way to pass time when waiting in dungeon queues and through MSQ duty cutscenes in FFXIV. Now to browse the sales for a new Vita game.
  17. Never taken part in an event on here before but this sounds more relaxed than others I've seen. I like that it's based on story completion rather than plats. A couple of these I can see myself not touching, but overall not bad.
  18. I wanted for it to be Little Dragons Cafe on PS4 (in fact I hoped to get that before 2019 began), but the grind for the last 8 recipes I need to plat the game is taking so much longer than I anticipated and I can't bring myself to play it for more than a couple of hours at a time without getting bored. So it's probably going to be Amnesia: Memories on the Vita simply because I'm enjoying it so much more than LDC right now.
  19. Ideally I'd like to work through my backlog of Final Fantasy and Dynasty/Samurai Warriors games because they're my favourite gaming franchises and I've too many I've not even finished the story/scenarios for never mind post-game and trophies. Specifically: FFX; X-2; World of FF; Heavensward & Stormblood expansions for XIV; and the DLC for XV. If I get around to it then XII and Type-0 as well but they're not priority. DW8 and SW4: Spirit of Sanada - although unlike FF I'm actually aiming to plat these ones this year.
  20. A new pair of Killstar combat boots to replace the falling apart pair I've been wearing for 5-6 years. Although Pokémon: Let's Go Eevee is a very close second.
  21. Samurai Warriors 4. My first platinum too. 😁 I received Shadow Warrior (hated it) and Sleeping Dogs (still sealed oops) at the same time.
  22. The only 2018 releases I played were Detroit: Become Human, Little Dragons Cafe, and Spyro: Reignited Trilogy. Oh and Vampyr but I've not played enough of it yet to reach a verdict. I'd say Detroit: Become Human was my favourite as it's the only one I got obsessed enough with to complete very quickly (the first play-through took me 5 days - and I think I took a 2 day break due to being too busy to play those days) and only one I bothered to platinum before the end of the year. LDC may join it but it just isn't comparable in any way honestly. Spyro: Reignited Triology is naturally amazing but I feel like the nostalgia is a huge part of that. I've been wanting this to be re-released for ten years (that's around the time motion sickness prevented me re-playing the PS1 titles) and I'm so glad it's finally here. Guess I'm mentioning it here more as an honourable mention.
  23. Dynasty Warriors 8 (PS3) and Samurai Warriors 4: Spirit of Sanada (PS4). That might be a little too high a bar to set myself as they are very time-consuming platinums but I want to get these two finished before I buy anymore Warriors titles as I've even more unfinished. It's taken a lot of self-restraint not to buy DW9 whenever it's been on sale (I know the reviews are crap but I don't care)! Secretly Final Fantasy X HD (PS4) and Kingdom Hearts 2 (PS3) as well because they are my favourite games of all time - but I'm kind of fed-up with them both between my umpteen PS2 play-throughs and 2 play-throughs so far (each) since their remasters - maybe to complete in 2020/21 would be more ideal? If I ever get the FFX one that is I just don't seem to be able to nail the technique for Lightning Dancer.
  24. 1056 hours in total. 1. 185 hours - Samurai Warriors 4 2. 146 hours - Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn 3. 124 hours - Overwatch SW4 is accurate as that matches up with what it tells me in-game, so I'll trust the rest.
  25. Well-lit. Preferably by natural daylight but at this time of year I have to rely on lamps even during the day. I only play in the dark when the daylight is too bright to actually see what's happening on the screen. Although I've not had that issue so much since I moved the furniture around - but that could also be due to the fact it's winter.
