Well, I just started playing Battlefield 4…if that’s a conversation starter.

I have a huge long list of games I still need to finish on steam

Fallout…Fallout 2…Fallout Tactics…Serious Sam 1 and 2 HD…so on. And I’m playing Borderlands 2 and Star Conflict among all this. Then there’s the damn social life. Making it pretty hard for me to get through all these games

Doesn’t help that my friends have a short attention span and keep telling me to bandwagon on a new game every month. Why can’t people stick with one game at a time these days before moving onto the next one?

Playing Dota and Team Fortress as usual. Really looking for some DLCs that I’ll buy in the next Steam Sale: XCOM: Enemy Within and some Dishonored stuff. I love those games!
Oh yeah, and a bit of Don’t Starve really neat survival game.
Gosh, I’m spending so much effort into making thematic loadounts for my TF2 classes, like Fallout Engi, Dragonborn Heavy…

Today I was playing Bargon Attack, old PC game, awesome sound.

I like NES music, but the games are too hard for me.

Currently doing a full replay of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and MGS4 in preparation for the launch of MGSV: The Phantom Pain next month.


I’m about 3/4 through my [insert ludicrous number here] playthrough of MGS2 with the difficulty set to Hard and with the “game over when detected mode” switched on, it’s a healthy challenge and very enjoyable. I mean it is probably one of my favourite games in the series nor am I ashamed to admit that I actually really like Raiden as a main character and greatly prefer him over his recent incarnation in MGR. The story is probably one of the most complicated parts of the fiction but definitely one of the most fascinating, every time I play it through there is almost always something new I pick up on that I hadn’t noticed before, it’s because of this, the big twists and the strange setting that I never get bored of replaying this instalment.

Afterwards I intend to replay MGS3, MGS4 and then finally move onto Peace Walker to refresh my memory on the events that took place directly before those of Ground Zeroes, I should be pretty prepped then and ready for whatever the new game has in store for me. At some point in all this I’m also going to be trying to search out a good emulation of Portable Ops seeing as it’s the one game I haven’t had the pleasure of playing myself.


Additionally I’m also getting my body ready for Dank Dark Souls 2, it launches a few days prior to MGSV and looks absolutely brilliant from the beta footage and analyzation I’ve seen on youtube.

You could say that I’m mega stoked for next month

I like how we all ignored OP’s directions and actually just talked about what video games we’re playing. Anyways…
Starbound all day, yo. Made my character Space Dandy, got the hair and everything right, got casual clothes and the space suit, still looking for a gun to match his, plus a creature that even slightly resembles Meow. Problem is, I’m pretty sure you’re only able to catch the randomly-generated creatures and never specific dungeon ones, which sucks because the Space Marine dungeon is full of robots that would work well as QT. C’est la vie, baby. Now to waste all my money, in true Space Dandy fashion, building human spawners in the hopes of getting someone who looks like Honey.

Even though it has no games I’ve really been getting some mileage out of my Vita lately. I got the Platinum Trophy in Persona 4 Golden a few days back and I just downloaded the Toukiden demo last night. Toukiden seems fun; basically Monster Hunter but with Soul Sacrifice’s interface and controls.

When it comes to non-mobile games, anyone get Battle of Z for PS3?

Well even though I just bought a $1500 “gaming” laptop (for much less than that), I actually haven’t played too many games recently. I’ve tried not to junk up my laptop until I get another hard drive to put all the games on (since I have to use it for school too) and my dad is always on our 360 playing a free poker game that Microsoft put out half assed and expects you to buy a bunch of micro-transactions at unreasonable prices even though their game is constantly glitching out and messing up. Here’s the only games I’ve played recently in the past 3 months:

(Edit: Screw what I just marked out up there. After typing this list, I realized I might play too many games. lol. Remember these are only the games I’ve played and not the games I own. I have about a dozen xbox titles, 150 PC titles, and a good lot of android titles. I might have a problem. lol.)

XB360:

  • Gears of War
  • WSOP: Full House Pro
  • Rayman 3
  • Forza Horizon
  • CoD: BO1
  • CoD: BO2
  • CoD: Ghost

PC:

  • TF2
  • Civ V (everything except Brave New World)
  • Tomb Raider
  • Halo: Spartan Assault
  • Asphalt 7

Facebook:

  • Ninja Kingdom
  • (Some other stupid Poker game)

GB: DS

  • Pokemon Platinum

Android:

  • Minecraft PE
  • dots
  • MLPFiM mobile
  • Rayman Jungle Run
  • Rayman Fiesta
  • Ingress
  • Tic Tactics

I’m playing several bullet hell shoot ‘em ups. ;P I only really play shmups. xD That’s what I specialise in. I usually practice a lot of stuff at the same time, also, so yeah. xD Not many people will know the following games that I’ve played recently but I’m mentioning them anyway:

Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Tachi
DoDonPachi Dai-Ou-Jou Black Label
Touhou 13 – Ten Desires
Touhou 14 – Double Dealing Character
Seihou Shuusou Gyoku

For anyone else who knows any of these games and is interested in them: a Ketsui run I did today. c:

Well, what I have been playing aside, I’d like to have a moment to appreciate how sexy Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freezes music is. Getting David Wise to work the music is definitely going to pay off for them. And that Aquatic Ambiance remastered is just…

a thing of beauty! I am not one for a remix of such a masterpiece (maybe I just have nostalgia goggles on), but I must say, David Wise is just outdoing himself. It’s leagues better than the previous Aquatic Ambiance in Donkey Kong Country: Returns (I guess in my opinion though).

I will have enough vidya in the next months…
I just got a PS3 with GTA V, we’re planning to download Resident Evil 2 and 3, Metal Gear Solid HD collection, MGS 4 and the upcoming title, Zombi U (I just beat it, but there’s still another ending as I hear), Earthbound, Metroid 2, Pokemon X, and to top it off… Animal Crossing, which lasts the whole freaking year, and has taken a ridiculous amount of my time. Not that I mind, of course.

WOW. You guys are talking about your favorite consoles? YOU FUCKING RETARDED MORONS. Everyone knows that PC is the BEST gaming system EVER and if you don’t think so, KILL YOURSELF you RETARDED WHORES!”

On-topic. I’m obsessed with New Leaf and TF2 nowadays.

Man, I wish I could still play animal crossing. I had the original on GC along with the GBA connector, so I could go to that special island. I used to play that shit every day after I got home from school (6th grade) and my town was awesome. One time I named a side town “Hell” just for fun, and when I got off the train I was wearing a flame shirt. Best game ever! I’d always mess with the GC’s clock and stuff too!

So today I just finished Spec Ops: The Line. And to be honest, I’m not sure I want to play it again. Not because it was horrible, no far from it. It’s just that I’m not sure I want to go through that depressing experience in the hero’s shoes again.
I’m also playing Cave Story on PC.
Also, to all who have Sonic Generations on PC, there’s a mod where you can play all the daytime sections in Sonic Unleashed, no werehog. It’s called the Sonic Generations Unleashed Project.

I couldn’t even look at Spec Ops in my library for a few weeks after playing it. That game just breaks a man.

Oh and have fun with Cave Story. I never finished it but it’s a charming little fun game.

I’m playing this NFS game called Hot Pursuit 2 (for the PS2). So, I’m mostly pissed off by these 3 [OP’s] named Wayne/Ashley, and Mika. And then, I move on to Ultimate Racer…oh my god, I can not tell you how retarded these cops are. First off, you’re NOT SUPPOSED TO KILL A STREET-RACER. All they have done is break the (useless; no, for real, a crapton of sources covered this) speed limit and race around, yet they’re trying to kill you. They drop military-grade explosives to fuck up your Ferrari or McLaren they’ll never have. And, they are getting paid so little, so they try to push you into traffic cars, make you run away from them at speeds WAY over the speed limit, force you off-road; try to blame you for as many infractions as possible. As shown in a later game, the more infractions racked up, the more you have to pay. It’s almost like the villains of Scooby-Doo; they’ll work anywhere, even in haunted places, etc.

Recently playing Touhou 12.3 with my classmates. I actually lured them into playing it, Now they’re doomed to play it whenever I get out of my hiding~, and it’s actually pretty fun when I start losing to them~

Although they’re only using these characters: Utusho (spamming attacks), Remilia (also spamming attacks), and Suika (no reason at all). One of us specializes on Alice, while I’m okay with anyone but Suwako and Sanae, and there is a newcomer who wants to specialize on Youmu.

Now that I mentioned it, I should be putting up a channel of their replays.

I beat The Last of Us the other week and played through the Left Behind dlc. No spoilers, but the game was incredible. Definitely one of the best I’ve ever played.

Here’s some freeware that’s had my attention lately.

  • Crystal Story 2 by Lanstrash – An RPG with a generic story, a standard battle system, character class routes, an appealing art style, a fun attitude, and a good soundtrack by Morgan D. King. The style points add up to make this a really fun game, worth comparing to the Epic Battle Fantasy series. Lanstrash previously created Agent Wing Defenders, a side-scrolling shooter with the same fun attitude where one of the bosses is Godzilla with a zipper on his suit and you have to think meta to beat another of the bosses.
  • Fractured 2 by A. Scott McCallum – More of the same gameplay gimmick as Fractured. Consider it an expansion pack if you’ve played it before. If you haven’t, you should give one of the games a try.
  • Lost Outpost by Garage Collective – a top-down run-and-gun game where you kill everything in sight. Some work went into building a storyline and giving the game a creepy ambiance.
  • Valthrian Arc 2 – Train parties of adventurers and send them on quests. The original Valthrian Arc looked amazing and was fun at first, but got boring fast. I haven’t played the sequel long enough to tell if it has the same fault or not.
  • Versus – a short comedy that is supposed to be an ad for some snack, but the devs went their own way with it. Click on stuff and laugh.

I thought you were talking about Chroma for a second. No, I guess I don’t know what BlazBlue Chronophantasma is then.

…but…did anyone else sign up for the Chroma beta???

Whole lotta “non-disclosure” agreements you have to get through before you sign up. I wonder if it’s going to be anything like rock band or guitar hero in the way of it’s game play. I’m not sure how, but it’s apparently hard to control. (I’m guessing non-standard FPS controls.)

Lastly, I just got done with the Titanfall game beta and I gotta say, it was awesome! Can’t remember if it had a non-disclosure agreement as well, so I’m just gunna leave it at that and say this is one of the best parts:

Don’t worry. I still haven’t played any of them. I’m actually on the verge of ordering all of them in that “complete set” that’s only like $50 and contains all of the DLC.

Hey! Don’t diss! I was forced to play the 360 version too!
Better than trying to run it on an old laptop.

Would run it on a PC, if I had a proper one though.

More people need to try out Rogue Galaxy, it was awesome.

I’ve been playing too many flash games lately. Here’re some more:

Dynetzzle – Logic puzzle. Imagine a six-sided die with the sides unfolded and laying flat in two dimensions.

Furitive Dao – Logic puzzle / action with good art and animation. Have your ninja kill everybody in the fewest number of straight lines.

Mimou 2 – cute cat escape game, sequel to Mimou.

Offs3t – visual puzzles with pretty landscape pictures.

Scaling the Sky – A visually appealing diversion for those who like wind, water, clouds, and lots of particles.

Zos – Action platformer with emphasis on exploring and storytelling. Better than I expected.
