I've taken to a second playthrough of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. This time around I'm throwing my inner roleplayer's annoyance to the curb and approaching the game more as a game than as a simulation, and getting a lot more out of the experience (at the same time as I maintain that the game would be a much better experience if it didn't expect me to break into random people's homes, wander around places I have no reason to be, steal everything that isn't nailed down, and hack everything in sight just because).

My observations from my first time through have allowed me to do away with everything I know I won't need, which creates a wonderful feeling of efficiency. And because I keep selling nearly everything I pick up (because if you're going the stealth route, you don't even need a gun), there's no reason to increase my inventory capacity, which means that much more Praxis to spend on other fun things.

Of course, that's also the game's weakness. Reminiscent of Yahtzee's critique of Metal Gear Solid 4, DX:MD is another one of those stealth games where you get a ton of cool shit you will never ever need.

Or at least, that's true if you play it as a stealth game, but the problem is, there's every incentive to play it that way and no incentive I can find not to other than sheer kicks. If you go full stealth, you will never need a single healing item all game, you can insta-kill everyone (some requiring just a little more thought and effort than others), your resources will pile up, and increasing the difficulty doesn't seem to change much about the experience (or at least it hasn't for me so far).

But of course I'm just one particular kind of gamer, and perhaps I'll change my tune if I ever get around to a guns-blazing playthrough.

Eh, I didn't have the patience for that in HR. Passive/Stealth is option one, but things go wrong eventually and I just roll with it when it does. Save-scumming to get an all-stealth nonlethal takedown run is just too damn tedious.

At long last I got around to correcting a historical injustice by playing through Resident Evil 5's story mode one more time to unlock Mercenaries mode on the Steamworks version. I used a trainer to make the process as swift as possible (infinite health, 1-hit kills) so even though I had to do the final chapter legit (that's 6-1 through 6-3 to be precise) because the trainer crashed anytime I tried it therein, my official playtime was still below 5 hours. I consider myself lucky.

Then I looked online for mods because I figured that after going to this effort I might as well enjoy all the benefits having the game on PC gets me and what do I find in practically the first place I look but a trainer that would have let me stage-select straight to the end without having to play everything before it. :facepalm:

But the experience was far from a waste. Near the end of this playthrough, I started actually watching the cutscenes and reading the documents, and thereby noticed things that I hadn't since the last time I played, like
Resident Evil Revelations 2  SPOILER: Show
an intelligence report made by an "Alex W." found on the ship, foreshadowing back in fucking 2008 a character who would come along over a pentad later in Revelations 2. Granted, I already knew a lot of this from files you can find in Lost in Nightmares, but this was during the campaign, so I assume it had actually been there since the initial release.

Which helped give me a whole new appreciation for the story mode.

Also, and this is hardly the first time I've thought this, but, damn, this game has such great facial animation. That sheer level of production quality is rare even today, but Capcom made it look easy by throwing it into an almost throwaway story just as a matter of course and ruined my expectations for years thereafter. :lol:

Crusader Kings 2. I don't think I've ever devoted so much time to something I am so horrible at.

Edit: I'm using a bunch of mods to roleplay a vicious vampire queen from Asshai slowly bring all of Westeros under her thumb.

Edit 2: A lesbian vampire queen.

Castlevania: Order Of Ecclessia

I busted out one of my old Castlevania cartridges to mentally prepare myself for Bloodstained whenever it gets here.

I've completed most of the quest but I'm trying to 100% it. a to 100% it I have to find some onyx so that I can make a pendant for the jeweler in the hub town that will allegedly give me an advantage in the final battle. The problem is I sold the first Onyx I had in order to power the miser ring ( which gives you a stat boost depending on how much money you have in your wallet). And I can't remember which monster it was that gave it to me.

Help?

Killing Floor 2 is finally out of early access!

This is probably one of my favourite new releases, although if you're not looking to slaughter waves of zombies in a variety of ways and/or have a fear of blood and viscera there's not much more to be found. It feels like both a bit less and a lot more than the old KF1, which was itself a spruced up game mod which happened to be very addictive.

The main difference for me is how different it feels to play with the Sharpshooter perk, although it's kind of a mixed bag. Old!Sharpshooter lived in a less advanced graphical era and thus didn't have much difficulty with recoil, and large targets were both a bit less hardy and more predictable, to the point that I have fond memories of one-shotting the otherwise tough Scrake enemy on Normal difficulty with a well-placed crossbow bolt to the brain. KF2's enemies are much more mobile and unpredictable, with a fairly wide range of climbing, twitching a writhing that can carry them that one crucial inch out of your crosshairs at the slightest provocation. Large enemies are tougher- I can't one-shot a Scrake with a crossbow anymore, but the crossbow itself has been made cheaper as a result, with two higher-damage weapons above it, and now has a nice mechanic that lets you pick up any bolts that don't land to reuse them. These aren't unwelcome changes, though, as they make the Sharpshooter class feel more skill-based and also makes it feel a bit more special when I sell my crossbow for a railgun. However, I do feel that this means that it's much easier and more desirable to simply pick one of the other bullet-hose classes to succeed. I do think that support and field medic have become a bit more crucial and useful, though, and they are now much better at both keeping a team alive with also fending off enemies.

Dragon Ball Fusions comes out tomorrow after being pushed up 3 whole weeks! I think I'll take a break from Pokemon Sun to check that out. It looks like a lot of fun. ^_^
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

Finally got back into Skyrim (the original, not the special edition) after ages of neglect. Finally got past those sodding Werebears, through the cowardly but practical tactic of taking a different path round the mountain such that I don't have to face them at all. Common sense- it's an underappreciated video game skill.

...And upon beginning to climb the 7000 steps I realize I am horrendously under-leveled. The beasties in the way (which I can't avoid without cheating) keep tearing me apart. Seriously, if it weren't for Lydia I'd be even more screwed than I already am.

Well, time to level up before I make that climb I think.

Aren't the Werebears only found on Solstheim?

I've never really had much difficulty climbing the mountain, although I've mostly only seen wolves and a single troll up there. To be fair, I usually do a fair number of side-quests before even starting on that one, so I might just be sufficiently levelled to take it on.

I'm not actually sure where I found them. It was somewhere on the way to Ivarstead. Regardless, they were a royal pain in the arse.

I got a Ferocious Ice Wolf, her cubs and a Sabre Cat. :cringe: I think I need to do some more leveling. Actually, I've been seeing lots of weirdly high-level enemies in this game...maybe it's a mod I have?

EDIT: A botched migration to Mod Organizer wiped my progress by mistake. Bugger. Oh well, I was only level 5.

I just played six hours of Crusader Kings 2 with the Game of Thrones Mod.

This fucking happened.

I started from the Crowned Stag bookmark (right after the Rebellion) playing as Eddard.

My first goal was to reproduce, so I started popping out kids like mad. I got Catelyn pregnant nine times. By betrothing them off I married the Starks into every top tier noble family on the continent, sometimes more than once, except Dorne. I'll get to that later.

I need sleep since it's daylight soon but here are the highlights:

I found a dragon egg in the crypts of Winterfell and hatched it. After three attempts which left me scarred for life, the dragon Gravefyre became my mount. Eddard Stark of Winterfell hatched the first dragon since the Dance. The crazy bastard started popping out eggs, so my kids became dragon riders in turn. During this time Benjen formed a large and illustrious mercenary company.

I wanted peace, I really did, but I kept getting dragged into war. (When I say I wanted peace, I mean until I could raise enough support to press Daenerys' claim to the Iron Throne to restore the Targaryens and remove that fat bastard Robert who got my beloved sister killed) I somehow remained besties with Robert despite my frequent wars with him, usually sparked by his cottoning on to my fumbling attempts to murder him to advance my cause. (Eddard is not a master of intrigue)

Cat started hating me and I took a lover, so after she tried to kill me I had her killed by snakebite. Then, because she was unmarried... I wedded Daenerys Stormborn myself. She died in childbirth bringing my son into the world. I planned to press his claim to the Iron Throne but Robert's son Quentyn Baratheon tried to arrest me after I told him to fuck off when he demanded I stop plotting to overthrow him and stop raising factions to tear down the Iron Throne. I was imprisoned, but demanded a trial by combat, beat Quentyn's champion (wuss wouldn't fight me himself) and was set free.

Since I wanted better state intrigue (Eddard's sucks) I married a warlock from the house of the undying who was actually pretty cute. I had no kids with her, as planned. At this point I began focusing on my huge brood.

All the kids grew up. Since they married into the Vale, Trident, Reach, and Westerlands, I formed alliances with all those kingdoms. I was about to declare war to depose Quentyn anyway when our truce ended but he tried to imprison me again first. This started a chain reaction and the entire realm attacked him (the Dornish jumped in and the Stormlands stayed out of it) and he was deposed. I took control of the entire realm as Lord Protector until I settled a war of independence with the Iron Islands and quelled a bunch of rebellions.

After that was handled I had to call a great council (staying on as LP would mean increasing rebellion risk until even my allies would unite to overthrow me). I tried to have Jon installed (R+L=J had not been revealed, just as my legitimized bastard) but they picked Aegon VI instead.

Because of the way the game assigns names and titles, Westeros was briefly titled Essos.

Aegon was weak, having only a handful of troops and no support. I raised a faction and declared war to overthrow the monarch and succeded in a few months. The war was brief but utter chaos with everyone attacking everyone else as my allies all jumped in and maybe half their vassals supported the crown. When it was over...

I, Eddard Stark, established myself as the first Magister of the Republic of the Iron Throne. I started a revolution and overthrew the fucking monarchy in Westeros.

At this point I abdicated and took the black and left Robb to deal with this shit.

Eddard was kind of a dick. I fed a few people to a dragon, cheated on Cat, and destroyed Robert's dynasty although Quentyn's little brother still held the stormlands so it wasn't a total wipe for them.

Corpse Party (on 3DS)
Reached 100% completion after one month and 26 hours playtime.
I’d give this a certified “Okay” rating. I became invested enough in the characters to see the story through to the end, but the gameplay was rarely enjoyable.
There’s nothing fun about wandering around levels simply praying for a story event to trigger. Adding a vengeful, red spirit to roam the halls here or there would have gone a long way; even though the spooky-ghost-chasing-you segments were fairly easy, they were nonetheless very menacing and tense.

That Ayumi... going completely bonkers at the start; being sane in the middle; dipping back into the crazy well (pool?) for tension; “snork”ing on someone else’s shirt, TWICE; going full-heel in the best wrong end… and all this on her period. Poor girl.

There were a lot of missing pages and some unexplored aspects of the story and setting (like what was the deal with that piano? Why even include it? Because it’s a horror trope that simply couldn’t be left out?), and I was a little disappointed by the true end, as well as the lack of any kind of reward for 100% completion.
On reflection however, the ending wasn’t a complete downer. After all, the final message is:
SPOILER: Show
“No hard feelings” from Seiko to Naomi.

That’s sweet. Bitter, but still sweet.

The Zero Escape titles are an infinitely better visual novel series available on 3DS.

=====

Replayed the two (officially released) GBA Fire Emblems:
Sacred Stones is still way too easy.
Blazing Sword hasn’t aged a day, it’s still great fun. Lyn is gorgeous.

Replaying these has really dropped my opinion of Fates.

I played a demo of Nier:Automatia. I did find the scifi concept intriguing and while the gameplay took a while for me to get use to, it was enjoyable, though I've only completed the demo in easy mode to my detriment. The only concern I have is that I discovered from reading up on the title that it is part of a greater series, and if there are elements of that series that I need to know about, I might not be able to enjoy the game fully.

Despite the fact that I am teh suck at fighting games, I decided to download M.U.G.E.N and a bunch of add-ons for it, as A: it's free, B: the endless modability, "anything goes" nature and potential for silliness appeals to me, and C: my poor negelected fightstick has been whimpering to be plugged in again. I've signed up on MUGEN Archive (and setup a small subscription service to both enable unlimited downloads and support a really cool archive) and I'm in the process of making my ideal crazy fighting game. Just need to download all the stupid silly characters now.

I've also downloaded Fighter Factory 3, so with some swotting up on that and Photoshop I should be able to make characters for the game (which knowing me I'll probably find a lot more rewarding than actually playing the game).

I am currently playing through Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn. I have to say, it's a vast improvement over Gundam 3, the upgrade plans have been overhauled, and the ability to use Mobile Armors has finally been added. Fighting in the game is somewhat easier, especially when the Gundams are upgraded to the max, and the special attacks and charge attacks have been tweaked enough to make some fantastic gameplay changes. Money is much easier to come by as well, making purchasing training for the characters or creating and modifying upgrade plans.

As for the the game itself, the two modes, Official and Ultimate allow a lot things to be explored. Official Mode follows Mobile Suit Gundam, Zeta Gundam, Char's Counterattack, Gundam Unicorn, Gundam SEED, and Gundam SEED Destiny. Ultimate Mode covers the other series in mash-up snippets, and offers players the ability to play some interesting scenarios. Also, there are many DLC missions, some based on OVAs or episodes of specific series. One such DLC mission (based on the OVA Endless Waltz) is part of my favorite DLC, and the DLC in general is wonderful btw. However, I am very glad (and excited) at my favorite Gundam finally being available... Wing Gundam Zero Custom.

Currently, I've gotten through much of the Ultimate Mode, and I'm working on upgrading several of the Gundams to their maximum potential.

Recently, I picked back up The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past...only this time, with the randomizer patched in/turned on.

It's...definitely different than I'm used to. I've never tried speedrunning the game (in spite of how many times I've played it through since 1993), but I have done a few minimal item runs (strictly what you need to finish the game, nothing more). This is a whole new thing altogether...mainly because of trying to remember where every single chest (or NPCs/situations that can net you an item/consumable) is. Worth trying for those who need a little something new in their ALttP playthroughs.
