Finished a New Game + of Resident Evil 5 (monthly retro)....
I like this one, its built on the success of 4 with the same mechanics pretty much, has a decent story, introduces Sheva to the cast list who accompanies Chris Redfield through an African adventure. Usual Resi nonsense to be found with ridiculous set pieces, irritating quick time events and funny gameplay moments. I was playing a second (or third) playthrough and so had unlocked most weapons and some funny outfits, Sheva was in a business suit and Chris was dressed like Lord Humungus from Mad Max. Its fun. Maybe feels a bit clunky at times but thats part of its charm.
Its definitely got its flaws and the Companion A.I is frustrating at times, i played as Sheva and It was like Chris was an excited puppy always surrounding me and getting in the way. I still like it though.I disliked a lot of things about this game, but as an overall package, I enjoyed it nonetheless mainly because I played in CO-OP with a friend. If I had to play this alone then I would probably dislike this game. Also, the mansion DLC was pretty cool.
Yeah, the mansion DLC is my favourite thing about RE 5.

Without spoiling for others, I'll say the true ending moment is a bit muddled (along with a lot of translation), due to being played on one screen. The true experience is the DS version.Finished Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
Very well designed hybrid between a visual novel and "escape room" game, where nine people wake up in a strange building and have to complete different puzzle rooms in order to escape. After each room, everyone must choose to ally or betray the people they played with, which affects the number of points that is shown on everyone's bracelet. If someone gets 9 points, that person can escape. If someone gets zero points, that person dies.
The story events and their outcome are based on the choices you make in the game (ally/betray, the people you team up with etc). To get the "real" ending, you have to explore all different story outcomes. While you discover something new in each storyline and you get new puzzle rooms each time, it does become a bit repetitive after a while. It took me over 30 hours to get the true ending, and I'm pretty sure I'd enjoyed the game more if it was 10 hours shorter. The true ending is also rather complex, I had a hard time following what was really going on. Despite these issues, this game is definitely worth playing because it does so many things right
