  • Dragon's Crown Pro (PS4) - It's just a port of the original. Supposedly the music and graphics are better, but I didn't notice. After a slow, linear start, it's an arcade-style brawler in a fantasy world where you replay stages in a random order for…
  • Been bouncing between games this weekend because the new ones I started haven't grabbed my attention. Life Is Strange has been in my digital backlog for a couple of years. I finished the 2nd episode tonight. Stories where 4 years' worth of high s…
  • 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. Th…
  • When I did it in December, it took at least 24 hours to arrive.
  • One of the first PC games I played was MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries. It became one of those not-RPGs that my mind categorized as an RPG, and a memorable experience that I've been wishing for a long time would return in a modern game. I was skeptical a…
  • 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 seas…
  • The board's FC gets quiet when it's been a while since the last content patch. Junko Byrne and Jammy Dodger were both online about every day I was around this week. Try sending one of them a tell and ask them about joining. I was only around for the…
  • I took off work Monday through Wednesday this week to max out my time in Final Fantasy XIV during a free login campaign. That gave me 2 days to cap weekly stuff before the reset, then 2 days after. Even completed 2 Wondrous Tales, which I usually do…
  • I also played three games of Into the Breach (PC) on Easy over the weekend. The package as a whole is more simple than FTL, which was disappointing, but as a tactics game it's very rewarding to plan out a series of moves and pull a victory out of a …
  • Mercenaries Saga 2: Order Of The Silver Eagle (3DS) was a solid, simple Japanese tactics game. I liked how each character felt different, and that you can't unlock everyone's best class so you have to pick and choose with some guesswork and fingers …
  • I played Super Mario Odyssey (Switch) during the Olympics. It's only the 2nd 3D Mario I've played since 64. Once every 10 years is about the right frequency for me. I had fun, and it was the right length, but having a moon around every corner took a…
  • I forgot to have a handheld game ready for March Madness. Decided to go with Mercenaries Saga 2. Lost Sphear sounds like it's going to be too slow for me, though I'm surprised it's already on sale when the physical copies are sold out.
  • After playing it regularly for 2 months, I finally finished Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Switch). The game clock isn't reliable because I left it running often, but I definitely spent over 150 hours on it, which I think makes it the longest I've spent on…
  • My top 10 in the order they came to mind: Persona 5, Breath of the Wild, The Witcher 3 - The three best games I played since 2010. Final Fantasy XIV - Sunk the most time into it, and it had the most memorable moments of accomplishment. Shadowru…

  • DQ5 DS and DQ9 both ended up in the top three RPGs of the year. DQ5 lost to Demon's Souls and Dragon Age Origins, which many staff members considered two of the best games in a decade when they came out. We have nothing against Dragon Quest. The rep…
  • Times like this, I wish FF14 allowed for shorter subscription periods. I enjoy content the most when it's new, but when I resub I want to play it every day of the subscription, and patches don't add enough for me to do that very often.
  • Macstorm wrote: » Persona 5, Nier Automata, and Zelda are likely major favs out there. I see it like so...Persona 5 isn't as good as 4, Nier Automata isn't as good as Nier, and BotW isn't what I was looking for in a Zelda game. Just my thoughts. I…
  • I spent a while at my brother's today to play Nine Parchments couch co-op. For a friendly-fire spellcasting game with goofy controls that caused us to blast each other regularly, I think we both enjoyed it. We stopped because he wanted to watch the …
  • Realized while replying to the GOTY 2017 thread that I forgot to put South Park: The Fractured but Whole (PS4) here.
  • I didn't get to as many games as I wanted either, thanks mainly to unplanned addictions to Overwatch and Clash Royale. GOTYs: Breath of the Wild and Persona 5 - After I finished Persona 5 I made a mental note of which of the two I enjoyed more, b…
  • I took off work and played Final Fantasy XIV all last week for free thanks to the callback campaign. My life's become more social lately, so this wasn't a 16 hour every day sort of deal like usual, but even with less gaming time, with a day left I h…
  • I'd never played a cell phone game before, due to various reasons like quality issues and the unappealing microtransaction structure, but my brother insisted I'd like Clash Royale and he was right. Been playing it for hours every day for the last fe…
  • Yeah, the only thing I don't like about the game so far is the UI, and the map/quest system is the worst offender. The battle taunts can be grating and I might mute them situationally. I'm digging the setting, characters, and lore, though the dia…
  • My plan was to borrow South Park: The Fractured but Whole from my brother and start and finish it while I was off work this week, but I forgot to pick it up a week ago and didn't get it from him until late Sunday evening. I'd been warned that it sta…
  • I didn't rush to play Pyre (PC) because 3v3 tiny arena soccer RPG didn't sound fun to me, but its setting and characters captivated me from the moment the game started. I didn't know it was so story heavy, which is a good thing, and the battles were…
