  1. Hmm, I suppose I could say that I got into the Devil May Cry series this year, at least the "proper" titles. I played that edgy reboot by Ninja Theory a few years back and it was fine, but it doesn't really count. I finished both DMC1 and DMC2 so far this year and intend on starting DMC3 soon. Loved the 1st game, wasn't so hot on the 2nd game, but I know the series gets really good with the 3rd entry, so I look forward to it.
  2. The day has finally come - I backed this on Kickstarter over 4 years ago now. Honestly, the game doesn't look that great from what I've seen, but hey, at least it actually came out.
  3. I got Dragon Quest 1, 2, and 3 on Switch. Never played them before, so it should be fun.
  4. [Death Stranding] I finally unlocked the ziplines. Man, it's such a great feeling to ride one and bypass a long stretch of map in a matter of seconds, especially when the area is full of BT's, MULEs, or is experiencing Timefall. I'm going to spend the next day or two creating a badass network of ziplines so I can travel all over the map with ease. ^_^

     

    It has been a little bit since I last gave my opinion on the game, and I've put in a lot more hours since then, so here goes. The game is bloody amazing! :D I said this in the review thread, but I was incredibly sceptical of this game before it launched. I'm so glad I gave it a chance and jumped in on day one - it has been a truly unique experience and I've loved every second of it so far. There's so much more to this game than the people labelling it as a "walking simulator" would have you believe. I've been enjoying the story more than I thought I would going off what I had seen in pre-release trailers and such (figured it would be more confusing than it is), but its the non-scripted moments during gameplay that have put the biggest smile on my face. :) Oh, and the licensed songs that play from time to time are top-tier. It feels like a real treat when they start playing. 👌

     

    I didn't think anything was going to beat Resident Evil 2 or Trails of Cold Steel 3 as my favourite game of the year, but this very well could. It's a great feeling to have all of your expectations surpassed. I'm glad Kojima's first game post-Konami turned out so well. I wonder how they're feeling right about now... :P

      It would seem both Kojima and Igarashi managed to find their places in the industry without the need of Konami and it’s intellectual properties. I’m happy for them both :D

      Pretty cool to read your impressions on this game, especially since they're very favorable when a good amount of people out there label it as a walking simulator. I haven't played any of Kojima's games but I'm glad to see the guy is able to do great without them.

       

      Also, needs to be mentioned, that picture of Kojima with the Konami Tears cup lmao 😂

  5. I bought the new Persona magazine, mainly because it came with this awesome PS4 theme. Some gorgeous artwork in the magazine too. 👌
  6. Ah, so that's when you unlock them. I've been taking my time with the game so far, trying to do as much side content as possible. I'm still only on Episode 3. I think I'll focus more on the main missions now until Episode 5 when the ziplines become available so I can cut down on the travel time.
  7. Got these ones recently. I already owned the standard versions of MGS5 and Fallout 4, but I wanted the "complete" versions (especially since the season pass for F4 is more expensive than the GOTY edition, even when on sale). Managed to get DMC5 really cheap which is nice. Dead or School has hot anime girls in it, so of course I was gonna buy it.
  8. As far as I can tell, it's just random. I haven't seen any structures/messages from anyone on my friends list show up yet. It would be nice, though.
  9. The more I play Death Stranding, the more I love it. Just finished Episode 2. The feeling of exploration is like no other game I've played. When I'm heading off to a new area that's currently off the grid, I feel like a proper trailblazer. 😄 It's so cool how you and other people online can create your own paths to the different cities/outposts using ladders, bridges, etc. Not in specific locations the game tells you to, but you can place these things pretty much anywhere you want. That's a level of interactivity I've never really seen in an open world game like this. It gets super tense whenever you encounter the BT's, especially early on in the game when you're defenceless and have sneak past them while holding your breath. 😅 I can understand why this game isn't for everyone, but it's far from boring in my opinion. I'm not one to cloud my judgement of games with "hype" and I was always quite skeptical of this game before its release, but I'm happy to say that I'm enjoying it a lot! 😁
  10. I've been playing Death Stranding for most of today and it's quite a fascinating game - I've never played anything like it. I find myself compelled to keep going so I can see what bizarre shit happens in the next cutscene. :P On paper, the gameplay sounds dull, but calling it a "walking simulator" like some people have does this game a massive disservice. This ain't no Gone Home. Whenever you set off to deliver something, it feels like you're going on a proper adventure. The environment is harsh and there are hazards everywhere. You really have to pay attention to what route you're taking and the items you're picking up. You don't just look in the direction of your objective and hold forward on the stick.

     

    Probably my favourite part of the game so far is the online functionality. It's so cool that you can find ladders, ropes, etc, that other people have left lying around to help you navigate the map. For example, have a look at this...

    It might be hard to tell, but me and 2 other people managed to form a bridge over this river using our ladders, creating a safe route back to the base. Very useful because earlier I was trying to walk through a river, lost my balance, resulting in all my cargo getting washed downstream. :lol: Speaking of, you can find other people's abandoned cargo scattered across the landscape or left at the bases which you can go on to complete the delivery for them. You can also leave warning/encouragement messages for other players similar to Dark Souls. One of the main themes of this game is bringing people together and that carries through to the online stuff.

     

    I'm still early on in the game of course, so my opinion very well might change later on, but I'm really liking the game so far. I hope people give it a chance. :)

      Exactly. The walking simulator complaint and label is fairly ignorant and misleading, and it's been obvious that the game would provide a unique experience, just like Journey (good enough example).

       

      If it's not on sale for BF, I'll just straight up buy it.

       @damon8r351  xD Maybe you can lure people in with falls information and make them drop cargo. Then you can grab it, run away with it, leave it at top of most fucked up climb you can find and send them screenshot of location with message "Come get it motherfucker! ". If game was made to bring people together I'm sure we can figure out how to keep us apart.

      As someone who frequently engages in market board trolling in Final Fantasy XIV, I like the way you think.

  11. Oh sweet, this version has online multiplayer? I figured it was going to be singleplayer only like the Switch version. That's great! Now I just have to convince a friend of mine to get the game too... *wink* *wink* @Redgrave There are quite a few trophies that require you to have a specific setup and/or get lucky. That's fine by me. I see myself playing this game for a long time.
  12. My copy of Norman Reedus And The Funky Fetus Death Stranding just arrived! This is gonna be a wild ride.
  13. Guys, come on. You said this last year too and it wasn't true then. The team members who win a prize are asked if they want their share or not; it doesn't matter how much (or little) you contribute to the guide. As far as I know, edits can't be tracked after a certain amount of time has passed. I'm surprised all of the categories from last year stayed too. I don't think the average user really knows it means to have exceptional formatting in a guide. I think the exceptional upkeep category is a bit of a strange one too. Usually if a guide requires lots of feedback changes after publishing , it was rushed and lacking info to begin with. Not really something that should be rewarded. I get the idea behind the category, but I don't think you can expect people to keep up with a guide they used long after completing the game to see if changes have been made. I'm sure this was mentioned last year by someone else, but if you insist on keeping these 2 categories, it should probably be the guide team members themselves who select the winners since they will have the most knowledge about these things. I remember the upkeep category in particular didn't get many nominations at all last year.
  14. #290 - Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (Vita) Extremely Solid Collect all trophies #291 - Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (Vita) Snake Eaten Collect all trophies So I did 90% of the work for these platinums on the PS3 versions. Once I transferred my saves over to Vita, I only had to do some cleanup (Boss Survival, beating the game without being detected, etc). Because of that, I'm not going to go in-depth on my I love these games because I already did that when I originally got the plats. I do want to say that I was actually very impressed with how these Vita ports played, though. They look pretty much identical to the PS3 remasters (the small screen helps I'm sure). The controls weren't anywhere near as awkward as I was expecting them to be either with the touchscreen actually working quite well to select weapons/items. I think it's awesome that some of my favourite games work so well on my favourite handheld.
  15. So yeah, it's a polarising game. Some people will love it and others will hate it which is all the more reason I want to play it for myself and come to my own conclusions. I love Kojima's previous games, so at the very least, I know it'll be an experience worth having. It's something different.
