Imo it's one of the absolute best games ever made. The combat is second to none.Lately I've been playing Divinity Original Sin 2 and I'm liking it quite a lot mainly for the way the combat works.
I beat GotG last week and loved it. Really felt like I went on an adventure with this mischievous bunch of great characters.Just finished Guardians of the Galaxy and I've finally started Subnautica Below Zero properly. Also playing Little Orpheus, it's good but not great. Level design could be a lot tighter, lots of just running right while nothing happens.
Still haven't gotten that far.I bought NEO TWEWY on Switch and played it for half an hour or less... yeah I don't make sound purchasing decisions sometimes.
What's the consensus about the Souls Hackers 2 DLC dungeon? I should be done soonish with the main game (entered what seems to be the final dungeon and just beat my first Soul Floor 4). I like the game so far if a bit on the easy side (compared with SMT5).
I am just half-way through Chapter 6 and you have already finished the game. Geez. Yeah, really fun game. I enjoy the combat a lot.writing this at 7 am, as i played Judgment all night to finish it, here's my review: easy 4.5/5
the game tops even a good amount of Yakuza games when it comes to quality
the gameplay suffers the same trend a lot of yakuza games have; it tends to be very slow at the beginning because you haven't unlocked the cool stuff, and so you're basically left with the basic combos here and there, but trust me, when you get into the game and learn how to use some of the mechanics such as Flux Fissure and/or Tiger Drop, the gameplay goes from "meh" to "i am literally Kenshiro"
the story itself can also be said the same for, but for a valid reason, as it's naturally slow to introduce the player into the settings, but the story really REALLY begins to take up several notches around 1/3rd into the game - the game probably peaks towards the final four chapters of the game (4 chapters out of 12 + finale), where shit REALLY hits the fan
in terms of side content however, i have to say it falls flat compared to the depthfulness we had in previous Yakuza games; while there were several mini games here and there, they didn't have any depth to it, such as the drone races, which felt very boring compared to the intensive storytelling with the small cars in yakuza 0
so in short, amazing story and gameplay, wish side content had more depth
i am about to pass out due to sleep want, but basically, it's a solid 4.5/5
I mean, such a high price tag sure was one of the reasons but overall I think this was going mostly going to be bigger on PC as it's a new platform and we didn't have access to the original nor the second one (for what is worth, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Part 2 popping-up all the sudden with a new version and a PC port along the way)Is it me or talk about The Last of Us Part 1 died really fast? Did Sony overestimated demand for it? Price didn't help for sure. I hope that they don't expect huge sales on PC Day 1 if they keep that same price.
I think that they should have waited for the show and released both PS5 and PC version at the same time. But I guess they can do 30% off for the show and charge what they should have charged at launch.I mean, such a high price tag sure was one of the reasons but overall I think this was going mostly going to be bigger on PC as it's a new platform and we didn't have access to the original nor the second one (for what is worth, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Part 2 popping-up all the sudden with a new version and a PC port along the way)
But yeah, while it's doing ok, it's not really exploding in popularity nor anything, which I think it's normal considering this is just a remake of an already successful and well known game.
Playing on Normal. Not playing a Megaten game on Hard, I learned my lesson.Still haven't gotten that far.
What difficulty are you playing on?
Nvidia can eff off. I will buy myself new IKEA furniture instead of the planned GPU upgrade. Steam Deck will be my main gaming platform unless I can get my hands on a used 3800 for <500 €.L'ing my AO over here. Those prices. LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Buy a 30 series card for half? Less than half that? LOL. Don't get scammed by Nvidia.
I think PS5 getting games before the PC version is just read meat for the fanbase to ease them into the idea of PC ports happening. It's a short-term temporary thing in my view. While I'm not sure they planned for the level of delay that Uncharted had (clearly that port got Iron Galaxy'd), I think these delays are somewhat artificial for now. There are also other aspects to it, as many of their studios have little or no PC development experience and their acquisition of Nixxes will start bearing a lot of fruit soon as they start getting involved earlier and earlier into the development of first party projects.I think that they should have waited for the show and released both PS5 and PC version at the same time.

Is that a cave with green lighting? It's an optional dungeon.I stop playing Tales of Arise because it got bit tiring, i finally decided to go back to Tales and i was doing great, enjoying it again aaaaand game slaps me again with high level area, like enemies 10 levels above me. Come on developers stop doing this. And i actually finished most of the side quests i got in the game. Now i am again thinking about putting game on ice for a bit, and it is sad because i am basically at the end.
Nah i did ordinary enemies in cave without an issue and left boss for bit later. But final part of the game has enemies like 10 levels above me. My party is like Level 45 and first enemy encounter is with enemies Level 53.Is that a cave with green lighting? It's an optional dungeon.
The final dungeon is also long as fuck. Be mentally prepared for it (if you decided to continue playing
I'm playing on hard and it feels ideal, about on par for what you'd expect on normal from most SMT games.Playing on Normal. Not playing a Megaten game on Hard, I learned my lesson.
Searched a bit about the DLC quality, seems to be an ok extra dungeon with nice boss fights. But I think I had my fill of SH2 - will finish the main game tonight and then move on.

I finished it last week and there is nothing interesting to talk about. It's the exact same game from 2013, but with a graphics facelift. I'm sure it'll look great on PC with max settings. I guess I wonder if it could run on Steam Deck. The cutscenes look incredible, but the real time sections aren't that impressive. I reckon it could do okay at 720p with minimum settings and a 30 FPS limit, but I'm not technically minded enough to know that for sure.Is it me or talk about The Last of Us Part 1 died really fast?

That game was great, yet another gem stuck on the PS3 along with Puppeteer, Rain, Folklore, Tokyo Jungle and so many others.I would love Siren: Blood Curse PS3 port on PC, (it was overlooked cause chapter release format but was very good remake) and would be good time when Toyama’s new game (slitterhead) is released.
Most people already played it. The game is 9 years old and never really left the zeitgeist, aside from gawking over the graphics there's really not much to talk about and the price certainly didn't help.Is it me or talk about The Last of Us Part 1 died really fast?

Thanks for the heads-up!We have a "What are you currently playing?" thread but there is no new post since June. So I thought maybe we can have a weekly thread instead so people can post a regular update. Feel free to write lengthy impressions or just drop the name of the game here. Enough of the talking.

Reminds me of the stutter during battles in Soul Hackers 2. Drives me insane. Every attack causes a drop in the frame-rate.I did my stupid, I really started Persona 4 Golden less than a month before 5 release
More or less 6 hours before you have full control of your decisions, this is still as insane as ever. I'm still less in love with the cast than in 3, too.
It plays great on Deck, to the point I'm beginning to think the Deck was made for Persona gaming. One smöl issue excepted...
Each time you trigger an all out attack the game drop a couple of frames on the animation. What should be a little joy, a stupid guilty gaming pleasure, drives me up the wall each time.
