For me it has been 6 games in January and February each so farHeck yeah! Managed to beat Hellblade today with a single, but long session.
Anyway, 3-games for Feb.! Just one more to get back on track. Time to update!
Not a fan of the DOA Quest stuff? Or did you complete both Story and DOA Quest modes? Story mode doesn't exactly flow well but it turns out I was able to follow the stories well enough once I figured out after the first six fights or whatever that each column is a single character's side story.First game of March is done! The very disappointing DoA6.
I wish it didn't launch like this... Maybe they should have delayed it even. There isn't much to do except grind for costumes in a system that is pretty universally hated, and after the lack of MP lobbies, probably the number 1 cause for negative reviews.
Oh I did the story too. I guess the quest stuff is fine, I did enough for the achievements and then some Like 120ish Stars atm. It kinda just feels pointless though. Like it's only there to help unlock costumes, but given the RNG element to that it's never unlocking costumes I want.Not a fan of the DOA Quest stuff?

The costume stuff getting patched to be more friendly is welcome but agreed that they could have handled things much better and in most ways this doesn't feel like a sequel and instead it's like an alternate sequel to Dead or Alive 4. It's just a sidestep and not a particularly great game. But I do still find the fighting fun.
So glad you enjoyed it.Gizmo
So, the tl:dr is that I loved the game and it'll surely get a spot in my top 10 RPGs ever. As a little background of my playthrough, my internet went down sunday night, and monday and tuesday were holidays here, so I had both whole days for myself.
Since I had no internet to distract me, I spent almost the entirety of those 2 days playing Arcanum (with small breaks here and there to eat and play with my dog), and that was enough to end the game. I think the fact that I constantly played the same game for almost 2 days speaks for itself on how much I liked it.
Overall, the gameplay was amazing. The game is full of posibilities and there was a lot of stuff I couldn't do only because of the build I chose. For example, I almost completely ignored the followers system and did the majority of the game alone or with my dog. Since the build I was going for was kinda OP I had almost no problems in combat. Because of that, the replay value is pretty good and I'm sure I'll do another playthrough in the future.
The lore was pretty interesting on some parts (though really cliched on others), but the ending was a little flat for me (including the difference between good and bad endings).
Bad thing: even after the fan patches, the game is kinda buggy and I had a few instances of crashes and glitches.
Bottomline, completely recommended to fans of RPGs (and specifically CRPGs).
It's absolutely amazing. I ended up crying at the end of it. It deals with sensitive topics and handles them with class, the opening message caught me off guard in a great way. It showed that the team were going to tackle LGBTQ+ issues with the dignity and respect that they deserve. It's a beautiful story that is equal parts heartbreaking and inspiring.What ya thought of it?
