    Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy (HD)- PS3

    What a frustrating game this is. My aggravation were due to the poor controls and check point system. On occasion, my second jump was just not registering even though I was pressing the button which led to cheap deaths. Some might think that it might be the controller at fault. Well, I broke a ps3 controller over a stupid mini game and it still kept happening. I have never played the original or the PS4 version, so I don’t know if those version have that issue. Even though I hated the game, I still managed to get all collectables and receive my first platinum trophy Smile . I guess I am a sucker for punishment. Thankfully the game is short so I didn’t have to put up with it for too long. I still felt it was really short even after getting everything.
    The two good things I can say about the game is that it looks good and ran great. What little fun I had in game were the driving sections. The story was just enough to propel me to the end. I wanted to finish the first as I still have the other Jak and Daxter games to finish, although, it might be a while before I start one of those.

    Score: 3/10

    Ninokuni II: Revenant Kingdom (PC). Very enjoyable game, great style and atmosphere and a charming cast of characters. I thought they'd do a bit more with the themes and plot than they did, so I can't say the ending was all that spectacular, but it was a great ride all the same.
    Maybe I'll log out and check my e-mail or something...

    Ever Oasis (3DS) -- Wow. I still have the after the main story stuff to do, but that was quite a story; and yes, bittersweet ending. :( man.

    Sometime last week I finished up Nier: Automata (PS4). Didn't clear out every ending, but I think I'm only missing one now. I very much enjoyed it, though it was not the unimaginable masterpiece that some have projected it as. Some strong characters and the voice acting was very well done (English version). I will likely try to platinum the game at some point, but I need a break for a bit.

    Minit (PS4, 2 hours) - Short, but brilliant. Loved this little game.

    SteamWorld Dig 2 (PC) - Good if you like MetroidVania. Lots of different digging-related powers to explore.

    You can get this free from Twitch Prime this month.

    The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 (PS4) - So that was one of the worst gaming experiences I've had in quite a while. It started out looking like a harmless, bland action RPG but it beat me into submission with repetitive tedium and poor design decisions. Review to come after I've taken out some frustration on the street thugs of Kamurocho.

    I played all five episodes of Batman: The Enemy Within (PC) over the course of a couple days, and I consider this one game not five. Episode one was outstanding, leaving me marveling over Telltale's mastery of storytelling. Then the rest of the season was a slow build-up to the climatic episode 5, and I was wishing more actually happened in 2-4. It needed to follow the format of a play and put a climax in the middle, but nope. That aside, I was glad I went into it blind as to the story's ultimate payoff. John Doe was an excellent character -- definitely the best in any Telltale game I've played -- and the irony where the player knows this man will become Joker while Bruce Wayne does not was handled perfectly. I liked all the characters, and supposedly episode 5 plays out quite differently depending on your choices in 2-4, which is cool. Overall, this lands toward the middle of the pack of the Telltale games I've played. Better than Batman season 1.

    And right after playing a western storytelling game, I played Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc (PS4), which was unfair to Danganronpa since Japanese storytelling in games is universally worse than western storytelling. It was fun enough and intriguing enough, if slower than I'd prefer. The way the trials slowly reveal new info until the player can figure out the killer just before the protagonist in the game does was executed well. I was always 1 step ahead of the game's revelations, but never 2 steps. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    .hack//G.U. Vol. 3//Redemption (via .hack//G.U. Last Recode; 44 hours)

    Yeah, this volume felt like a complete mess. The story campaign was horrendously paced, everyone felt like they had lost more than a few dozen IQ points, and the post-game is too much (the opposite of Vol 2's nothing). Oh well. Just the new volume left after a short interlude.

    Ah yes, Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs Royal Edition (PS4) was finished (in around 25 hours I believe). Review be here.

    Given all the stress I've been feeling, the only gaming I've really done is Overwatch. Then I realized I was all RPG-ed out, so I picked up Rise of the Tomb Raider (PS4) from work and beat it, I really liked it, up until the final area which went on far too long than it needed to, Really liking the reboot otherwise!

    Final Fantasy V Advance (GBA, 25 hours) - I enjoyed this playthrough a lot more than prior ones, but I was in a systems-game kinda mood, so that helped.

    Pokemon Black (DS) - well, I liked some of it but it didn't hold up to how I remember it. I used a few pokemon I'd never used before, like Sawk, but when I played the game originally years ago I thought it was the best generation. Now I'm finding I want Ultra Sun way more. Sure there's more story here, but it still is kind of ridiculous and heavy handed. How many times can Ghestis say "I .. I mean Team Plasma" to make you realise he's the bad guy before it gets old? The whole pace of the game seems really fast if you're not stopping to catch everything, so when the friends come by and say how much they've grown during their journey all I can think is "We started 2 days ago..."

    Still, I'll play it again sometime. Not sure what I'll play next, Pokemon wise.

    oh right, I should mention I didn't save the game because I forgot to clear the other data, so when the credits finished my game went bye bye forever. Whoops.

    XCOM 2 (XBOX ONE) Veteran difficulty, vanilla version with DLC (no WotC). As much as I normally hold myself to playing Ironman in XCOM games, this one was just too buggy to do so. This is, perhaps, the most buggy game I have ever played. Multiple hard crashes, and it even took several days and a console reset to be able to boot the game in the first place. That aside, I really enjoyed many of the changes to the actual gameplay. The new classes were fun and varied. New aliens were challenging, but manageable once you saw them a couple times. I did not like the change in how armor worked, or the overall changes to the overworld sections of the game. Had lots of fun with it, though, once I got rolling. Will play a WotC game at some point, but not right now.

    Sid Meier's Pirates! [PC] Have had plenty of free time and not much to do until Deadfire comes out, so played through a very different sort of pirate game. Rescued my family, avenged myself on the villain who wronged them, swept the Spanish from the Caribbean entirely, and retired the obscenely rich Governor of Port Royale, the city I conquered for my Dutch patrons immediately before I retired.

    Cosmic Star Heroine (Vita, 13 hours) - I enjoy this more than expected after others had talked about it being less than they'd hoped for. Pacing was pretty good, but at the same time it did feel rushed in areas. I liked the cast enough that I would have liked to have played around with them a little more.

    Steam World Dig 2 (Switch) Yay, my first Switch game is completed! Now I need a new Switch game. As for this one, I really enjoyed it, as I did the first, but I felt like the ending came up on me a bit quick. I think I ended up with 91% secrets, so I did try to clear everything out. Only had to look up two solutions for caves. I wish I had a bit more time to explore in my fully decked out and mobile set, as that was very fun.

    If you enjoyed the first game, this one is just as much fun. If you didn't enjoy the first one, this won't change your mind.

    Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire[PC] - Heck of a ride! Took about 45 hours all up but still feels like it has way more content than the first game (outside the main quest, which is real short)

    A bit buggy but... not really in the expected ways, I guess? I didn't see any progression bugs or quests bugging out like you'd expect in one of these kind of games on release but... stuff that should have been extremely obvious in the testing phase. Like save/custom history imports being kind of busted. Or dispositions increasing too quickly, companion interactions firing immediately upon joining instead of hours later. Or perhaps the fact that the whole custom level scaling system they integrated does literally nothing at all. Still very much enjoyed my time here, just hope those problems get fixed quick.

    Yakuza Kiwami (PS4)

    My first foray into the Yakuza series, and I can already say I like it. It combines Japanese drama through the main story with the wackiness of side stories and minigames. Ever hear a retired Yakuza badass sing along with a J-Pop song? Seen one play a kid's trading card game? Do races with a toy car you customize? A lot of the wackiness also helps with some colorful characters, including a madman Yakuza named Majima who stalks you throughout your non-story related endeavors and shows up in unexpected and funny ways, going so far as to even challenge you to some of the minigames (you can't escape, Kiryu-chan!). Others include kids you help teach the value of friendship through trading card battles, and old friends you re-ignite the love of toy car races with.

    Battles can be chaotic old school brawler types (put into 3D), with you using your bare fists in one of four styles to fight your foes, and even picking up objects in the environment to use on your foes. A gauge slowly fills, which allows you to do powerful finisher moves and counters, most of which are either brutal or over the top. While battles are simplistic, they're anything if boring considering the environment you're in determines what can be used as weapons, and you can always mix it up with a different stance if you're feeling bored with one.

    If you're wondering if this series is for you, this game is definitely the starting point I suggest for it (considering it's a remake of the original, meaning there's no real story spoilers for future games).

    0 is also a really good starting point for Yakuza both for being chronologically first, and because adds a lot to Kiwami story-wise (Much of the new stuff in Kiwami are follow-ups to 0, and knowing what happens in Kiwami makes some stuff in 0 a foregone conclusion.)

    Yeah, just keep it under Nyx. When we did the site change over, my username got changed over too. Make your life easy!

    I finished BattleTech (PC) tonight. At about 4/5 of the way through, I lost steam and then stopped playing for a week when a mission annoyed me after I failed a couple of times, but until that point I played it for hours every day and was hooked. The game is a bit too long, the battles a bit too slow, and the mechanics with their high RNG a bit too frustrating for me to call it great, but it's close to great. Really, if it was 40 hours instead of 60 I'd have been wanting more. It just outlasted my interest.
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    Reverie (Vita, 6 hours) - Easily the best Zelda-like on Vita.
