  1. Gar Goobus got to 4 million subscribers this week and did an unarchived karaoke for it. I am quite proud of the shark 🙂 She also played I Am Fish (stream 1) twice (stream 2) which I didn't know of before but it's a cute game that she seemed to really like even if it got frustrating at some points. She also did a collab with Shion that I didn't get to see live since it happened before I got on. They both also did a Renai Circulation cover 😛 Lastly she played more WWE2K22 and had the characters she made fight each other while she commentated on it. It was funny seeing Bloop make a sort of return and then she had Bloop and Bubba fight each other. 😛 IRyS played I'm On Observation Duty which I've seen someone play a while back. It's an alright spooky game but it kind of relies on memorizing stuff and being able to notice minor details so I think IRyS had a hard time because she had to balance that and the chat. She also played Stanley Parable but I didn't see much of it apart from one moment where she made fun of chat by saying the narrator sounds like chat when she doesn't play a game the right way 😛 Fauna played Iron Lung which is an okay game since I like the premise but there's not really much to the gameplay apart from looking at a map and putting in coordinate and then you get a picture of something. So it's kind of a situation of "once you've seen one play it you've seen all of them play it". She also played Deer Simulator which was kind of a weird game 😛 But the highlight was the collab she had with Kronii, Mumei, and Gura playing Propnight and it became a not very seiso stream because of the farting emote that you can do in that and at the end they watched the Sea Man ending (not on stream) and talked about weird stuff and memes. The only thing Fauna shared on stream was a gif of the Hololive logo but it was a bunch of twerking Among Us characters that formed the logo and I'm sure Gura is the one that had that one from the start because she loves that gif 😄 Kronii played Mega Man X (stream 1) twice (stream 2) and I'm not too familiar with it but she got frustrated a lot which is funny because in contrast she played Cuphead and didn't really get mad at all from what I can recall 😛 She did say she played it up to a certain point before so that probably helped but I'll give her credit anyway. Only thing Ame has done that I have watched/am watching is a late night Elden Ring stream. I have heard her do a Gremlin scream after losing her runes so far 😛
  2. Looks really nice and it's cool they are bringing in stage transitions. Can't wait for the soundtrack though
  3. Since we got both a Dragon's Dogma 2 and Crisis Core remaster announcement in the same day
  4. After years of taking L's we finally got our W Dragon's Dogma bros! But really I'm so glad that they finally announced it even if it was basically just them going "IT'S COMING GUYS DON'T WORRY!" with the title card 😛 I can't wait to see how it turns out.
  5. #247: Platinum Trophy - Devil May Cry A long time ago before the cyborg ninja Raiden or the angel slaying Umbran Witch Bayonetta and even the god slaying Kratos, you had a half-demon Devil Hunter with a red coat named Dante with his trusty .45 caliber pistols and a sword. And technically before that he was Leon Kennedy in what started out as Resident Evil 4 but became its own game. But this isn't my first time getting the Platinum for the game since I got it years ago on PS3 and so I figured I would have it be one of the few games I would stack if I can. So I was pretty familiar going in the game this time and knew what to expect. I remember the first time playing it on PS3 was one of the first games where I got over a game that was considered pretty hard and even playing it again I can see why there were parts where I definitely struggled with but I handled them a bit better this time. Going through the game again was great and I have no real issues with it other than the camera angles being kind of funky but it's not all that bad. I think the only times the camera winds up being really disadvantageous is a couple platforming sections and during the Nightmare boss fights since it can be hard to make some precise jumps and for the Nightmare fights the boss itself will cover the screen which makes it hard to see where you can jump on his back to hit his orb. Beyond that I still think it holds up well and I found the combat fun even if pretty simplistic compared to other games and even future DMC entries. In some way I kind of prefer it when it's simplistic compared to how the later games focused more on big combo strings. It was also great seeing the cutscenes again especially ones where Dante gets impaled by a sword and just gets up from it because I remember when playing it on the PS2 it blew me away since I wasn't used to seeing or playing as characters that can just walk off getting impaled in the chest by a sword 😛 Since I knew what to expect the trophies and what to expect for the Secret Missions they weren't so bad. I also remember the Enemy File trophy also being more difficult but I wound up getting it a lot easier this time around. I only had to leave two of the Secret Missions for a future playthrough because they involved fighting more than one of the Shadow enemies a bit early on which was a bit much to deal with. The only thing I really struggled with was remembering how I dealt with the bosses properly since I know I handled them a lot better when I played it on PS3 but I think I just forgot the methods I used for them and it was especially difficult on Dante Must Die difficulty where they are more tanky and hit harder. But that's why I farmed Holy Water and Untouchables in Normal playthroughs 😛
  6. Gura started HoloEN's WWE2K22 character roster with some pretty cursed results 😛 She also played the new release of The Stanley Parable which she stopped playing after the first couple of hours because the stream or her internet kept messing up. She played it more the next day though. It's an alright game I guess but they really and I mean really ran a joke about a bucket into the ground so hard and for so long that it went straight through the Earth's core so I think it's a game that I wouldn't mind if she didn't continue. And lastly she (and by extension Ame since they both streamed it) played Minecraft and it kind of became a big collab with Fauna, Kronii, and Baelz. I'm sure Mumei would have joined if she weren't on break 😛 Ame did a joke stream where it was the chat at a Doctors appointment and I feel like she just used it as an excuse to get Morbin jokes out of her system 😛 Beyond that she played Minecraft a couple days before the collab and played more Elden Ring. She was going to play Mario Galaxy 2 but I guess the Wii-remote she used was broken (not at all the fault of her raging and banging it I'm sure 🙂) so who knows when that will get finished now. Other than that she played Valorant with Iroha and Kobo which I didn't watch but I did see this clip from it where they do British accents 😄 Outside of the aforementioned Miitopia and Peglin streams Fauna did two collabs. One with Watame to where they played Nintendo Switch Sports and it was cute because they would both go "Oh sheep" at times 😛 She also played Pacify with Vestia. Otherwise for the JP side I have only been watching Subaru since Pekora is still recovering but she started Tales of the Abyss. Amiya played KOTOR some more and is now on Kashyyyk so there's lots of the stock Chewbacca sounds whenever she talks to any of the Wookiees 😛 Pikamee started FFX on YouTube but unfortunately she is playing it with Japanese audio and subtitles since I guess she decided that YouTube streams are more for her JP fans and the English streams are on Twitch which is very unfortunate because I would like to see her live and I don't want to go on Twitch for that. But she does have a VOD channel at least and I've just been watching her GTA: San Andreas and now recently Alan Wake VODs. I saw that she's been streaming more lately even if it's just Kirby but I assume she's feeling better now as well. And yeah I saw the cake, it looked pretty tasty 😛 But it would be nice if she streamed more even if it was in collabs since she's been the most absent out of all of EN as far as I know. Which reminds me that I guess Ina is on break since she hasn't streamed in a while either but I assume I just missed the announcement.
  7. Callisto Protocol and FFXVI were the highlights for me. RE4 Remake looks like it will be good too but I'll wait and see what all comes out for it but I'm willing to give Capcom a chance since RE2 Remake was good and there's a bigger development time gap from that and RE3 Remake. Stray seems interesting even if the appeal to it is you play as a cat in a robot world and Eternights looks like it will be cool to play. I actually thought it was something Scarlet Nexus related since the way the characters did their attacks looked similar. The only indie game that stood out to me was the Rollerblade one since it actually looked like it would be fun to play. Not really into fighters but the changes with Street Fighter 6 look like a big change especially since there's like that open world-ish aspect to it 😛 It reminds me of Mortal Kombat: Deception when that game had a sort of open world to it. Otherwise I'm not really into the PSVR2 stuff but I really look forward to FFXVI and seeing how Callisto Protocol turns out since they both looked really cool. Callisto also has the bonus of being done by some of the people involved in the original Dead Space so I want to think it's in good hands. For FFXVI it looks like a big improvement over XV especially for the combat since I believe it's being done by or they at least got help from the guy that did DMC5. The big battles with the summons fighting looked really cool too. Overall I thought it was an alright State of Play since it felt like they actually had stuff that was interesting and not another Deathloop trailer for the billionth time or something else that was underwhelming 😛
  8. I'll probably get it if it sounds like an improvement over the first. Would really like it if they made the platforming better and added worlds that felt more lively.
  9. Revenge of the Sith and Empire Strikes Back had their theater anniversary dates this week so I figured I would post my favorite songs from the two. Seeing Revenge of the Sith in theaters for the first time is probably one of most fond theater memories.
  10. Not as much happened compared to last week but still had some good streams. Gura played Taiko No Tatsuijin after having not played it for a while. She also seems to be getting back into horror games by playing Spooky's Jump Scare Mansion and The Closing Shift. So it looks like Gura is coming back into a new groove that I hope picks up more and she plays other classic horror games that they have permission for. Would be nice if she played Alien: Isolation to prove she's totally not afraid of it like she says 😛 Fauna played Nintendo Switch Sports again and then the day after her and Mumei played a joke game that was made for April Fools called Knightfall. I've seen another LP channel I watch play it so I kind of knew what to expect but it was funny seeing them mess around with the horse drifting mechanic and they got close to winning one time 😛 IRyS came back after not feeling well so she started off by finishing Resident Evil 2 Remake. She liked Ada's dress and chat told her to go back to the police station for the Rebecca photo which was funny to see 😄 She also played Nintendo Switch Sports which made her sore and did a karaoke that was for once allowed to stay on the channel. Lastly she got another original song posted. I'm not sure how to describe the beat/instrumental but I really like it. On the JP side Subaru beat the initial FFVII Remake game and is now playing the Yuffie DLC. I hear her saying "Yuffie kawaii" a lot so I guess she likes her 😛 And Pekora has been uploading her own skits that are kind of like the ones Marine does. She even did a head patting one 😁 For non-Hololive the only one I watched was Amiya play KOTOR again. She seems to be going towards the light side route since she doesn't like the idea of being mean 😛 She also jokes about being tsundere towards Carth. She got off the tutorial world and got her lightsaber so she's now at the part of the game where it starts to pick up. I hope she fixes the issue where for some reason the stream doesn't show the pre-rendered cutscenes since for some reason it won't but I assume that just has to do with KOTOR being kind of an odd game to optimize since I know it will sometimes have these kinds of issues happen with modern PC's.
  11. Like Phantom Pain I also held off on completing this but I went back to it to clean it up. It's kind of weird going from Phantom Pain back to this because of how different it feels and a couple of the mechanics felt less refined. Probably the most notable one for me was holding enemies up and telling them to do something with L1 since it felt like you have to kind of wait for the animation to finish before you actually hold them up. It's hard to really go into it but it didn't feel as good as it did in Phantom Pain. And man, the Depth trophy along with having to replay the Ground Zeroes mission or other ones that involving extracting people really make you realize how easy you had it when you have the Fultons. But yeah the 100% isn't really too bad although really repetitive which I guess makes sense because it was basically a $30 demo. The trials were probably the most annoying part of it since they all require you to mark all the enemies on the map on Normal and then beat the missions twice on Hard except for Intel Operative Rescue which only had to be done once. Otherwise S Ranks weren't bad although I found them tense for a couple of missions because I was so used to relying on Fultons and the other stuff that Phantom Pain gives you to make missions easier.
  12. I saw there was an MGS2 VHS tape back before it came out that basically just showed a trailer for it and other games. I love the song that plays 9 minutes in though. 👌
  13. Quite a lot of stuff for this week. Ame played more Elden Ring and for the outro in that particular stream she used one of the trumpet weapons to make it look like she was playing the outro music 😛 She also played Mario Galaxy 2 twice (Stream 1) (Stream 2) and as expected she raged a fair amount although I guess to be fair I feel like it's because the Wii remote can be kind of awkward when it comes to certain movements. You can kind of see it in the following clip because she uses her 3D model for a handcam. She also played more Mafia even if not for very long since a couple hours later she did a collab with Gura where they played a VR game where they both violently terrorized people at bars and other clubs. After playing though they both used their 3D models to make poses 😛 Here's a Tweet from one of them. It was nice to see though even if it wasn't very long since it feels like a long time since her and Gura actually did a collab together. Second to last today her, Fauna, Calli, and Sana did a Collab playing Ultimate Chicken Horse and as of writing this she was playing more Elden Ring. Fauna played more Black Flag and I think she's further than where I left off when playing it but I'm not sure. She at least likes the shanties and tries to collect them when she can. 😛 She also played the Nintendo Switch Sports game which she later did with viewers. The day after she did a Desserts Tier List and I'm kind of disappointed that she put Pecan Pie in the D-tier since I feel like it's a great dessert especially on Thanksgiving and when you have it with some sweet tea 😋 But it looks like her original song drops tomorrow so I'm sure that will be good. Outside of the Ame collab Gura played some horror game called Happy's Humble Burger Farm which was really weird and I didn't know what was going on 😛 She also played more Minecraft with all the Council members. It was just a lot of them talking about whatever but Kronii left to do her own stream before they finished and they were all talking about different ways to mess with her with Fauna suggesting they trick her into helping them build something and not tell her where it is which I guess suggested that they were going to mess with her Bunkeronii. I think it's just funny to hear Fauna scheme like that 😄 For Mumei she did a quick stream earlier where she used a helium balloon and as of writing this she is doing an endurance karaoke for 640k subscribers "or something". 😛 The last Hololive related thing was I saw Korone talk about how she likes Jar Jar from Star Wars and would still like him even if everyone else hates him. It was also funny seeing the way she messed with chat by giving the chat avatar the Jar Jar eyes 😆 Outside of Hololive, Lisa finished Revengeance and she seemed to like it a lot. She said she wants to do the DLC too which would be cool. Amiya played more KOTOR which is nice since she seems to want to make choices based on how she feels so it's nice to see someone not go fully dark or light side. 😛 I just hope I can catch her streams live more often. Shiki also played some horror VN by the name of Iwaihime which seems pretty interesting. It's been a while since I've actually watched her along with Pikamee who seems to stream more on Twitch which is a shame because I really don't want to have to use Twitch to watch her.
  14. #246: King of the Wasteland - Wasteland 2 Another game that I started and couldn't get into so I dropped it for a while and decided to pick it up again. I think what put me off from it the first time was I wasn't really used to CRPG type games and so I think playing Divinity probably helped me pick it up again. Another thing that put me off was one of the early areas in the game called AG Center that just felt like a slog to get through and even on replay it kind of was but it wasn't as bad. The only other thing was I found the combat to be kind of basic since nothing about it really changes after starting the game so I didn't really find it too engaging. But I think after giving it another try I warmed up to it more to where I was more engaged with it since like I said I think playing Divinity probably helped with that. I still think the beginning of the game is really slow but once you get past the AG Center the game starts to pick up and when you get to the second map of the game in California it gets really good and I felt a lot more engaged with the setting and the factions that inhabit it. My understanding from what I briefly read (I could be wrong but I'm just going off what I saw a couple people say) was that Chris Avellone mainly got involved when they started California and so that's why it kicks up when you get there. So once the game picks up I felt like I was affecting the world in some way and I like the thing about how the Rangers are trying to bring law and order back to the wasteland. Overall the setting feels like a somewhat more grounded Fallout but without the "World of Tomorrow" type technology and somewhat more crude humor which I felt was fine because it wasn't distracting. If anything, I would love to explore Wasteland's setting in a sandbox RPG game since there was a lot that left to the imagination. When it came to playing the combat again I still didn't find it too great but that doesn't mean it's bad even if I did wish it was kind of like Divinity's combat. Beyond all that there is some jank to the game and it's prone to crashing especially in California for some reason to the point where I would save before leaving an area because I felt like there was a 50/50 chance that it would just crash. I actually had it crash during the final battle which really sucked because in that fight for a trophy you have to protect a pretty weak NPC in an already tough battle, so I had to do the final battle twice. That said I think the story and setting make up for these things and I really do like all the different factions and the questlines once you get to California. I assume that Wasteland 3 solves most if not all these issues since it looks like it's of higher budget. The trophy list isn't that bad despite the Platinum being Ultra Rare (I know there are different regions but still) since I think the only thing to really be worried about is collecting all the lore books which a guide helps with. I did have a scare for one trophy because it involved resolving a quest peacefully and none of my characters had a high enough Smart-Ass skill so I had to go level up more to resolve it but I guess I was worried because I thought the quest might have been timed for some reason and I didn't want to go out of order from the guide. I'm glad I gave the game another chance since now I feel like I can appreciate it better even if there are some things about it that I'm still not very keen on but it makes me look forward to playing Wasteland 3 more now.
  15. I managed to do them without the wingsuit. The challenges in the Old Town were made a lot easier with the low gravity while a couple in the Slums were still a pain in the ass, namely the Favela Run one since there are a lot of spots in that where jumping really high puts you at a disadvantage. Otherwise most of the other Slums challenges were made annoying because sometimes I would get stuck or jump off something I didn't mean to. It's kind of random they would decide to include this event but I guess I'm grateful they did since I know when I tried doing it legit even with the wingsuit it was just annoying and too much of a pain to where I didn't want to bother. Great game but I hate it when devs put in those kinds of challenge DLC's.
  16. Ame played more Elden Ring. A good part of it was her fighting the Godskin Apostle but she managed to beat him after a while. Afterward though she put a sign down when she was about to fight a hard enemy and begged told chat to praise it for free heals and she kept getting a bunch of heals when fighting it 😛 Ina also played the new Lego Star Wars for May the 4'th and I think she said she wanted to play more. She said she likes the 1-6 saga and "we don't talk about the sequels" so I think I appreciate her a bit more 😛 I guess this means so far this is the only Star Wars game they have permissions for. I would like it if they got permissions for the Jedi Knight and original KOTOR games but I definitely don't see the original KOTOR permissions happening until after the remake comes out. IRyS has also started RE2 Remake. She thinks Leon is hot which is fair 😛 No bosses as of yet but it's funny hearing her get chased and startled by the Lickers.
