Guy, i hope you like za best girl, because there's only one best girl. 

How cares about the best girl, Amy or Gisele are my favorites

 

From the main ones, I went with Riela after thinking about it for 30 mins. That was a really hard choice, but in the end the combination of her personality, red hair and other pleasant physical qualities won me over.

No regrets

I've been playing Valkyria Chronicles 3 for the last few days. I finally got the English patch working and I've had a blast.

VC3 combines together everything that was good in the previous games. It has the advanced character customization and shorter missions from 2 and darker story akin to the first game.

The penal military unit is super interesting as a setting. It brings the grittiness of war seen in the first game to whole new level.

 

Once again all by best characters are girls, as there is nothing more satisfying than watching young girls blowing up tanks with machine guns.   

The shorter missions and tiny map areas are why I hate 2. I played a little of 3, and while I like the darker story, I just can't stand switching between areas of the map. Sega effectively killed that series by putting it on PSP and having to step backwards, instead of building upon the first game by using a home console.

I like the smaller maps because they less prone to the ambush bullshit that happened in VC1. At least in VC3 you can send reinforcements, whereas in 1 you had to restart the mission more often than not.

The smaller maps also allows for faster gameplay. Valkyria Chronicles is best when you are rushing objects with high risk, high rewards tactics. It's much less frustrating than the overly long missions in VC1.

Slowly going through Valdis Story: Abyssal City, as well as Life is Strange.
 
So far, I really, really enjoy Valdis Story. It's like a beat em' up meets platform meets RPG. In both of the introductory characters Wyatt and Reina, or something like that, they both have a distinct feel. The combat is smooth and very enjoyable, especially boss fights. The only gripe I have is the platforming occasionally feels iffy.
 
Moving onto Life is Strange. When I first bought this I legit thought it was made my Telltales. As I loved the first season of TWD, and soon to play TWDS2, I was pretty excited to play Life is Strange. Going into it, I knew nothing at all and was met with a SE logo. Nothing wrong with that, I said OK, and moved on. 
 
After completing the first episode I don't know where I stand on the game. All of the characters feel solid and the story is making me want to get deeper into it. The thing that, as of now, that is holding the game back for me are the characters I said that were solid. The main character, Max, doesn't make sense to me sometimes. I realize it is a game, but she could have used her powers numerous times, especially, since she doesn't know of any repercussions, or thinks about them. Another is I honestly dislike Chloe so far. -Spoilers- I picked the option to save her from her step dad and say it was my weed. She then proceeded to pull out a gun that her step-dad asked her if she stole from him. Of course at the time she said she didn't. Now she is talking about going and popping a cap in Nathan Prescott. Like OK bitch too much for me.
 
Also, I am just a pretty judgy person, typically only in my head. So a lot of the characters I just don't like for pretty much no reason at all  :makina:

Oh yes...Valdis story is good, it have so much Castlevania feel in it, i completed game for both characters and just for me it felt like guy with sword is a bit easier (the last boss was pretty damn strong for both of em), and yes i liked the monk gameplay more.

 

 

As for the life is strange *light spoiler inside* i am completly agree with you, i dont like Chloe too, i think she is the one who will get you in serious troubles..the heck, she even may be the reason of that tornado. I remained hidden in that closet and i didnt saw that gun, but it will come up later and man, she stole a friggin gun, with an actual bullets and waving it around to have fun. Plus she is too excited about your powers, i wish there were option not to tell her...but oh well....instead we got option to hide it from this nice guy who have crush on Max. About Max..i actualy like her, but i got a feeling thers no happy end for her, maybe shes dead already, the whole time system gives me alot of Ghost Trick vibes (wich is amazing game btw). And her powers have a sideffect, so maybe thats why she dont overuse them. Also in the second episode, in shower on the mirror thers a link to Kate's club video...and there is actualy a site there...

Recently, I have been playing The Awakened Fate: Ultimatum and Gundam Extreme Vs..

The prequel, Guided Fate Paradox is better in almost everything IMO.

This.

Forever.

 

Not only does it completely remix and make exciting again the best Final Fantasy, it even includes an Ancient Cave mode which is basically the Ancient Cave bit from Lufia 2, FF6 style. There is also an Ancient Cave romhack for Final Fantasy 5, but I don't feel confident enough in my knowledge of that game to attempt it.

 

So, like, you play through all of FF6 with everything (literally everything from colors to abilities to what magic each Esper gives you) randomized and then if you ever get tired of doing that you can do the 200+ floor randomized dungeon runs.

 

It's essentially the game no one who likes Final Fantasy should ever stop playing. I'm pretty sure I won't. Ever.

 

That is nuts. If I had more willpower, I would tear myself away from playing Destiny all the time and play that instead.

 

But I don't have willpower, so I'm still playing Destiny all the time.

CK2. The awesome feeling when you assassinate your own children to secure the succession. I also saw a brother spread his seed far and wide. I think he had 25 children... Also doing some Civ5 MP with Fuwa people whenever I can.

Had enough frequent slowdowns to drop Metroid Prime (emulating) for the time being.

 

Downloaded the free mod Portal Stories: Mel, playing that.

 

Besides that I finished Hotline Miami 1 on the Vita, I am planning to platinum it later on- for now, I think on the Vita I will focus on getting the platinum for Danganronpa. It's on low priority though.

 

I'll finish the one game I have going on Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, then I'll shelf it.

 

Playing Alien: Isolation at nights, yesterday the Alien started hunting me for the first time and it is so good. I'm saying this as someone who is very easily frightened but I still enjoyed it so much. I might not drop it because I am too scared, after all.

 

I think I'll finish Deadcore after AC, I heard it is short and I don't like the later levels enough to try to speedrun them. 

 

After that, I'll probably move on to Psychonauts, then maybe finish up a few casual games from my childhood (Insaniquarium and Slyder Adventures). 

 

Then I have The Witcher to play, but by that time Ramadan will likely be over (I shouldn't play TW before Ramadan ends lol) and after that if I still have time I'll probably play a few VNs.

Oh Alien isolation is a greate game...it is a bit too long, but interesting indeed, i was so stressed during playtrough (that damn alien, those damn cyborgs and that damn ending) one of the best games of 2014...*light spoiler ahead*....and when you get to the hive part shit will just get real...

 

And Psychonauts was awesome too, i dont know why bad things happened to the series, this quest and idea in general was so cool plus art style is also...unique....prolly something like 9th most underrated game of all times.
