  1. This is almost as good as bemoaning about the lack of trophy integrity, ( ゚∀゚)アハハ八八ノヽノヽノヽノ \ / \/ \☆
  2. Plat #154- Coffee Talk If you liked the nighttime chill vibes of the cyberpunk mixologist game VA-11 Hall-A, then you might also like the more modern setting of this humble coffee barista game as well. Set in Seattle, though you really don't see anything outside the coffee shop, this chill game has you playing as the owner and barista of Coffee Talk. You meet a sizable amount of repeat patrons throughout the days, most of which are of supernatural origin. That's right, you can serve coffee to a game developer orc alongside a werewolf hospital worker who loves his ginger tea lol. It's not Seattle if it isn't weird, ok. Coffee, teas, chocolate, or milk drinks; you make whatever your customer desires. The VN style and gameplay isn't complicated at all, the design is pretty nice, and the bgm is a bit infectious and awesome. Overall, a short and relaxing respite before hitting the next game on the pile.
  3. This should have been a Status Update, seriously. Sony would know their own production numbers with supply/demand over you supposing them. You wanna whine about PS5 wrongness, should have thought about scalpers and the like. You make the same kind of lamenting on XBox Series S/X launch or are you just sweet on Sony? I read her paragraph just fine and it's way more preferable than a sentence with no commas and period in sight. Forum posts =/= chat boxes.
  4. Plat #153- Afterparty Pretty enjoyable game from the people of Night School Studio, who are also responsible for Oxenfree! The gameplay is basically the same when compared with Oxenfree, but the premise of Afterparty is so much more wild and freaky fun. Long story short, chat up demons and dead souls while chugging all the alcohol Hell has to offer in an attempt to outdrink Satan for the grand prize of living in the Earthly plane once again. It's not all drunken partying though; the relationship dynamic of Milo and Lola can be hard hitting and cathartic and you also find that, just like everybody else, demons have their problems too. Downsides are that you just basically go back and forth doing stuff and some load times can get pretty lengthy. 🍻🍷🍸🍹🍶🍾
  5. @Wagszilla Gameplay in the original is primarily hack & slash, some top down battling and a text heavy portion was also used to progress through the game. There were pretty memorable and epic-like boss battles too, definitely one of my favs. Not sure how much will be tweaked for the new release, but anticipating more sleek and refined combat. Tone is a bit somber given the world it presents itself in, but the characters and scenarios can give some emotional highs/lows. I always thought of NieR as a dark fairy tale that is utterly fascinating. It looks and feels more organic compared to Automata.
  6. Plat #152- Steins;Gate: My Darling's Embrace A pretty lighthearted, romance influenced take on the popular science-adventure VN. Typical individual character routes, but I was pleasantly surprised that there was a (very) light BL-esque route for Ruka/Luka (even with all the tired "But he's a guy" interjections). Best waifu is Kurisu of course. Anyway, VNarcolepsy reared its ugly head again lol. I also went through days of just not gaming anything, so pretty slow completion more than usual. I'd say play this if you love VNs and/or Steins;Gate~
  7. Got my pre-order in for the White Snow CE, yaaaay💖 I think the contents offered are pretty nice and makes me more excited for its release day~
  8. PS1- Chrono Cross Never got around to playing Chrono Trigger, but this entry seemed pretty accessible to me at the time and playing through it felt like a unique experience. The game setup is a little vast and confusing, but I felt like I had fun with it. The story and characters were also pretty intriguing too. PS2- Silent Hill 2 I believe this is the game that got me into SH and horror games in general. Just think it's a classic. PS3- NieR Had heard this was a cult favorite and decided to buy it without seeing too much of it and holy shit I was just charmed by its aesthetic, details, music, and Yoko Taro's brand of storytelling. PS4- Yakuza 0 Yakuza is one of my fav series and this prequel entry is one of the best games in it. Yakuza games are always so great with their details and the '80s throwback was so fun! Origin story of how Kiryu started out, along with the greatest BAMF around: Majima. Damn, those dudes are just awesome. PSP- Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII FFVII is a classic title and I liked it, but this felt more enjoyable to me as it's a prequel to the main story and stars the best boi around, Zack Fair. The GacktGenesis stuff is a bit silly, but what can you do. PSV- Persona 4 Golden P4 vanilla is one of my PS2 favs, but this upgraded version was just great. Always have fun replaying this~ Hmm, a lot of JRPGs lol. Don't seem to play those lately though...
  9. The Missing: J.J Macfield and the Island of Memories💯 (Event Prep 0%) Female lead: J.J Macfield DLC: None When I thought I was feeling burnout after finishing TLOU II, I went after a platless game and settled on The Missing. It was a little breath of fresh air and I found it really interesting! It's a seemingly simple looking platform type game with some puzzle solving to get to the next area, most of which you need to harm your body(?!) and end up at an inverse stage to figure out the solution. There's a sort of modern cute-retro look to some things, collectables include DOUGHNUTS yaay, some horror vibes going on, but the underlying story about gender identity with self acceptance and love felt really hopeful at the very end. SWERY The Sinking City (Event Prep 0%) Ok game, glad I got it before the delist happened!

SWERY👏 And I also did The Sinking City. I'm just not good at sticking to game event plans, daaaaammiiiiit.
  11. Plat #151- The Sinking City This was an okay game. It's been a while since I've read Lovecraft so most of the details, nods, and inspirations felt vaguely familiar. So anyway, you just basically run all over Oakmont (which is wetter than Seattle and not as weird, heh) being somebody's errand boy (i.e DETECTIVE WORK lol) trying to find the cause of madness that's been afflicting various people, yourself included, as the character Charles Reed. You can really just hit all the story missions, along with some side mission objectives and choice outcomes, to simply nab the plat. There's a good amount of side cases to do and most aren't needed for plat, but I did a good amount of them for fun anyway. Monster enemies pop up when you're trying to investigate places; you can either run around trying to avoid them or waste them with your guns, traps, and bombs. You'll have to make these out of materials you can find throughout the city and these are also given as rewards when you complete main/side cases. You can also gain experience and once you hit the max over and over again, you'll gain skill points to be used in the skill sections (kinda like Weapon/Stats/Inventory Upgrades). Along with a health bar there's also a sanity bar, which drops down if you're around enemies too long and you make use of your Mind's Eye ability to uncover supernatural clues and events. Never got it depleted, so I don't know if a Game Over would have happened if it did. Didn't really have any outstanding issues with performance. Sometimes movement felt a little lag, other times it ran like pure butter. Of course, there's the funny model boo boos (like someone holding a book, but their hand is right through the book lol), but whatever. All in all, okay. There were some creepy stuff, sure, but I felt that things should have been more . . . grosser? Idk, maybe that's my preference.
  12. I don't know why I like to post in increments of 2, oh well. Everybody's Gone To The Rapture DLC: None The Last Of Us Part II (Event Prep 0%) Female lead(s): Ellie, Abby DLC: Not doing it anytime soon Deviated from my list with TLOU II, dabbled a little in Bloodstained, and currently enjoying The Missing: J.J Macfield and the Island of Memories. I need to focus more.
  13. Plat #149: Everybody's Gone to the Rapture Plat #150: The Last Of Us Part II Oh god, still ignoring Fate/Extella lmao. Finally cleared out EGTTR and after doing TLOU II, I felt like playing a non plat game so hello "The Missing"! I like SWERY, so I'm enjoying the game and of course it's got that weirdness, but that's what makes it special. Hit that Plat 150 too, but that doesn't mean anything anymore lol. But yeeeey AWE DLC dropping this month~
  14. Plat #150: The Last Of Us Part II Whew, finally! First playthrough was fine, 2nd time was pretty boring and I fell asleep lots of times trying to progress. On the game as a whole: there were a few parts that grabbed me, but mostly I felt that I had an average experience. Never got exposed to the leaks, had a little hype built up, but when finishing the game there was some sense of disconnect for me. I'm one of those people who feel that sequels to things are usually never as interesting as the first offering, so that's probably why. I just really favor Part I's presentation of its beautiful bleakness and harshness, the journey of it all. Will say that Part II's presentation is certainly polished and going from cutscene to an encounter is seamless. Didn't have a problem with the characters or with the violence depicted. But, like some other people have voiced, there are problems within and I agree that there are pacing and editing ones. Lastly, I can appreciate a game series that can permanently retire (iconic) characters.
  15. Good luck on your conquest! I'm pretty shitty at gambling and doing Climax Battles, so most of the RGG plats will be out of my reach lol.
