Started the final chapter in Trails in the Sky... First Chapter. This naming sure is weird. Anyway, the story started getting pretty interesting. I can't say I were particularly mindblown by it s

I finished playing VA-11 Hall-A recently and it was quite enjoyable. The bartending mechanics were nicely woven into the story and surprisingly challenging at times. The protagonist, Jill, is ado

I'm playing Celeste! My fingers and getting destroyed with having to press multiple keys at the same time... It really feels like a controller game, but I will persevere, I think. Playing a chapter pe

Jesus.  I'm gonna have to download for a week, at least.  Maybe even two.  1 GB takes me slightly over an hour...I hate my ISP.

 

I am glad I am not hyped for that game because if I tried to download that there would be like only 10 gigs for 4 people to use for a whole month, and that ain't happening

 

It doesn't help that I learned our internet was not unlimited only last month

Just bought the PS2 game "Oni" and will play it as soon as I have time again, I have no idea what kind of game that is but I thought the cover looks interesting and 0,50€ for a used version is nothing.

Oh oh, if it's the same Oni, this is the game Bungie Software released just before Halo : combat evolved.

I played through Tokyo Twilight Ghost Hunters and had a blast. Now I'll just finish the stuff I didn't get and try to do character specific endings. On my first play through I managed to get "worst" ending, I didn't improve relationship points enough. Now it's time get all the girls and maybe some guys.

 

The game itself is kind of short and simple, but damn it is beautiful.

I actually returned my new copy.   It didn't look that good honestly and the reviews seemed bad.

I wouldn't say it's great, but it's not bad. For a full price release it's kind of lacking. The story is pretty interesting and it has bunch of great characters, but none of these are really fleshed out. Characters show up on their mission, and after that they just are with you. Episodic story progression makes it fun to play in burst, but it never goes deep enough and it lacks any meaningful conclusion.

 

Still I had fun with it and it has some interesting ideas, like the emotion system for conversations. The battle system is pretty solid too. It really has all the ingredients to be a great game, but they are not used properly. It feels like they had great idea, but failed to fully realize it.

What's that game like?  Saw it one Steam and was mildly curious.  I looked at the Steam reviews, but lets face it, Steam reviews are hilariously godawful.

a freaking amazing jrpg mixed with a decent plot displayed as a vn but the charters are animated all the time and with lip-sync, the combat is really similar to the eternal sonata. Get it now it's 50% off :)

Got a slightly more detailed description than that?  I usually try to find out info about a game before I buy it if it's more than $5-10, but the Steam reviews are pretty unhelpful, as usual, and I don't really know any decent reviewing sites.  Used to go to IGN, then I realized that they're generally pretty full of crap and stopped looking at their reviews.

You can explore and see the enemies before fighting them like in FF12 with sections that you can explore (no random combat) but the fighting is turn based, like eternal sonata but without the points to move around (I can't think of any other game like that right now sorry :P) you even can do combos and special attacks.

It's like ff x combat but moving around in the combat zone once you hit an enemy. It's really fun.

You need to grind a lot...just like in any jrpg.

 

The plot is really hilarious and not serious at all, for me it was decent (a war between consoles...yeah I'm not joking) and there isn't much else to talk about :P

Just checked the IGN review of it for the lolz.  "I liked the game, it was fun, but too easy.  The fanservice in the game made me uncomfortable but I like Kill la Kill so shut up.  6/10"  Keep dropping the ball, IGN.

 

Well, I have $40 on Steam that I was going to put towards GTA V, buuuuut...eh.  Why not.

"Freaking amazing JRPG" huh? That's the first time I've seen anyone describe any of the Neptunia games with those words. They are not known for their gameplay, and even a lot of fans seem to admit that the gameplay is weak. Personally, I found the combat to be really boring and I'm not a fan of its sense of humor. Overall I thought Rebirth was kinda bad. :/
