  1. Broken Age is ready to pop. Game was decent but having a large number of missables meant that I had to refer often to a guide as I didn't want to go through another playthrough. Then the 1 hour speedrun was a pain too. Game would have been a lot more fun if it weren't for so many missable crap, plus those annoying puzzles that you need to get right in one try, especially the knot one and the final crane game. I prefer to explore every possible dialogue and using all items on NPCs for different interactions so would have preferred most of Broken Age's trophies to be like that, instead of those complete the puzzle/quiz on first try. My new timetable looks to be really hectic, plus gotta work on my thesis, so goodbye to gaming until weekends maybe😭
  2. 100th Platinum - Utawarerumono Mask of Truth Legendsung Difficulty 3/10 Enjoyment 9/10 Really sad that with this game the Utawarerumono trilogy has come to an end. I played the fan-translated ver. of the first game on PC ages ago and really enjoyed it. So during my holidays after finishing all my miscellaneous tasks, I finally started playing the sequels Mask of Deception and Truth. The slice of life developments in Deception allowed me to get properly attached to some of the characters, so when shit hit the fan and the story rapidly accelerated near the end, was quite sad regarding the huge cliffhanger at the end. Mask of Truth is much longer, has more story and way more battles. The game kept me completely hooked with the civil war and all its tactical games played between the two commanders, but when you think it's finally over after bringing the war to a close and reinstating the rightful liege, more unexpected truths get revealed! The final stage is not the final battle, as there is an epicly long final battle right afterwards that properly concludes the Utawarerumono saga. The Dream Arena is much easier than the previous game due to better mechanics, but also much longer plus you have to replay stages multiple times because of those atrocious drop rates! Lucky for me I got most drops in two to four tries, especially Ultimate Showdown with Benawi and Mikazuchi and the final battle against four Akurukutas only took three attempts! Conversely, the drunken Shis battle and the Tatari escaping one took me 6 tries dammit, considering a 60% drop rate. Can't believe I got the fastest times for both Mask games in EU Vita, since I like to take my time to completely explore what a game has to offer to me. Not that many platinum achievers either. Guess the EU ver. (54 Vita + 464 PS4 owners) isn't getting a lot of love unlike NA (906) and JP (3881). Given how much I enjoyed the game, I wanted to give a rating of 11/10 but the bittersweet open ending brought it down to 9/10. The interesting plot twists and events of the game kept me wanting for more, so a disappointing ending like that completely killed my momentum at the end. Played through the entire Dream Arena hoping for more but nothing more than entering the developers room and listening to their commentary. Seriously they could have done a much better job. Like searching through reddit I came upon this OST image which shows Kuon reuniting with Haku in the ruins that they first met. Now why couldn't they have included that CG in the actual game itself?
  3. Granted but in your intoxicated state you agreed to donate all your organs while alive and without anaesthetics I wish my Fate Extella copy would arrive soon
  4. Just became Friends with Benefits in RDR2
  5. Do robots in Detroit actually want to become Human?
  6. Tales of Xillia
  7. Metal Max Xeno
  8. Will aim to become the next Micheal Jordan. If life caused you to wake up as the other gender one day?
  9. Arrested for arresting the wrong serial killer by mistake
  10. Gonna set a new world record for the fastest speed! Again.
  11. Finally done with the Utawarerumono trilogy! Got my 100th platinum too. Was really sad this interesting journey is now over. If you guys like reading long stories with some occasional combat in between, then I recommend giving this series a go. I give Mask of Deception 8/10 and Mask of Truth 9/10. Check out most recent platinums for my thoughts. Sadly, my university is restarting so my gaming might slow down considerably from now on. But still planning to get at least 4-5 games ready by Feb

  13. Utawarerumono Mask of Truth on Vita. Also gonna be my 100th platinum
  14. Platinum#99Utawarerumono Mask of Deception As someone who played the original Utawarerumono many years ago on PC, I was really looking forward to playing Mask of Deception on the Vita and the game does not disappoint. The new protagonist Haku is very relatable and likeable to me, though I wish the other characters were fleshed out a bit more like they've done with Ukon, but still nicely done. It's mostly VN with some story battles, so it has been a while since I've relaxed and enjoyed a game so much. Especially near the end, where the plot picks up and damn what a dramatic rush. Although I think Haku made a really stupid decision near the end, the plot for the final game wouldn't have worked so well without it I guess. Now the postgame dream battles were a real headcase. For the first time I had to actually use my brain for a change and some of the battles like with those constantly reviving undead guys that can also oneshot your characters or the rematch with Kurou where your characters are divided in the middle of enemy forces were quite challenging. For the final dream battle, I ended up sacrificing most of my characters to take down most of the enemies, with only the twins and Nosure remaining. Had an easy win against Munechika by spamming the twins' shikigami creating attack skill while Nosuri would keep sniping from afar. Since poor Munechika would keep prioritizing the Butterfly, just bullied her one-sidedly lol. Nekone and the twins are indispensable post game characters, with attack/area heal and attack/decoy in same turn. Max BP farming was boring but did it quickly while watching the first Kizumonogatari movie. Gonna make Mask of Truth my 100th platinum!
