  1. What games are you currently playing?

    Just an update, on tactician this game KICKs my ass. Every encounter is memorable. Its almost like the Dark Souls of RPGs now. I'm having to replay a fair few fights but learning more and more about the battle system just as positioning, unchaining, buffing before fights start, using summons to activate fights, laying traps... ! Much better than just raw-powering my way through the game with buffs galore and not paying too much attention to whatever I loot. Every spell is now so meaningful to me.

  3. What games are you currently playing?

    ur right .... tbh idk why i have such an obsession with buying one. I'm currently starting divinity original sin... kinda mesmerised by the complexity of the game and battle system.. no game i've played has given me the breadth of tactics ive seen or choice in customisation and char build.
  4. Would you watch this? YT channel idea

    possibly would if it didn't have spoilers and spoke about good games and why i should play them in addition to what ur plan it. definitely a unique selling point but if ur aiming to get those 100k+ views, ur gonna have to be relevant.

    Hey guys, this thread is for us to post reviews of games we've recently played + openly discuss each other's reviews.
  7. Honestly enjoyed trails in the sky more than chrono. I liked chrono trigger a lot tho.
  8. Dark Souls Bloodborne Super Mario Odyssey BOTW Windwaker HD Fire Emblem Conquest Fire Emblem Awakening Dragon Age origins Trails in the Sky SC Trails in the Sky Cold steel 2 HM: XC 2 - subjectively love it, objectively flawed Ni no Kuni - narrowly missed out TLOU - objectively superb, but didn't enjoy it Witcher 2 - flawed diamond Bioshock Infinite - no skill Persona 4 - buff + heal, stories a bit emo sometimes XCOM - FE comfortably beats it in most departments FO3/NV - Neither build atmosphere and likebility of characters like JRPGs Bravely Default - last 1/3 of the game was crap Currently playing ME2 which after 9 hours would be pushing into the HM. What're yours?
  9. Top 10 games of the last TEN years

    I’ve read the enhanced mode has more enemies, different tactics, better skills so it sounds quite enticing in all honesty.. but some people have said it looks like it would be better to do if you have completed the game before .

    Mass Effect 2 Known as one of the best games of last gen, I had high expectations for this game. It excels in voice acting, its graphics stand up to today's standards on PC, its expansive universe and attention to detail is up to scratch, excellent PC controls, it has a hugely varied cast with some excellent backstories and its overarching story is an epic space-age war. It's fixed a lot of annoying issues from the first game, and improved in nearly every department. Multiple different classes all acting differently is the icing on the cake. However I found it lacking in the story, pacing and gameplay department. From a gaming perspective, its fine. The shooting is fine, the powers are fine. Fine is good enough for an RPG more centred towards story. The lack of real customisation in the forms of guns and only 4 skills per character leaves everything a bit dry for my tastes. A sentinel shepherd for all intents and purposes is going to be a very similar sentinel shepherd in another's game which kind of sucks. From a story perspective, its so formulaic after the introductory acts. Ship -> Find new member -> new Memeber mission -> ship and repeat. ME2 felt more like a re-introduction to Mass Effect than a sequel. The overarching plot was never expanded on, the ultimate enemy is underwhelming and the linearity of levels didn't help at all. The plot lacks the space-age political stand offs I imagine in my mind, it lacks real choice, it has hardly any plot twists, enemies and people outside of your crew aren't fleshed out and the cultures aren't fully explored. For all the beautiful worlds it shows, they're paper thin in regards to depth. Overall I can't help but feel disappointed by Mass Effect 2. It promised so much but I felt it was lacking in story and ultimately didn't have the core RPG mechanics to deserve a top 10 place. I can't help but feel a lot of people are looking back on this game with a huge dose of nostalgia when mentioning it as one of the best games of last gen. 7-8/10 IMO.

    What makes mass effect 2 stand out to you?
  13. Top 10 games of the last TEN years

    I reckon its counts too. My issue with ME 2 is I felt like the game was just introducing characters to me and giving them one plot story point. Most worlds were only visited once and had little to do. I enjoyed it, I just felt like they could have halved the length and increased the quality, decreased the boredom. The story and plot felt very lacking compared to what I was expecting. The plot didnt really interconnect or grow like most top class RPGs I've experienced bar the quest involving Kasumi, the shadowbroker probably. I'm glad they ditched the mako from ME1. I think I'll hope on ME3 maybe having trying out divinity original sin. ME1 had more mystery about who the enemy was.. ME2 was like hi its the collectors, lets go after them at the end of the game. If the storytelling is much improved though, I'll play Me3 before divinity.

    Im guessing hes going off of the PSP release which was only 2011 i think...
  15. Top 10 games of the last TEN years

    I just finished ME2 and was.. underwhelmed. People say its ridiculously amazing and I found it really nice, especially the start. However it was very contained and repetitive. Travel galaxy in shitty spaceship -> visit planet -> recruit/solve a party member by fighting corridors of enemy and repeat. I think I actually enjoyed ME1 more... ME2 I was just stuck on that ship all day and the plot after the introduction of cebrebrus was VERY slow. It was basically me recruiting people then assaulting the collector base. Just all a bit anti-climactic. Does ME3 improve the formula? I tried to google a decent review but they are all crying about the ending so I stopped reading. __________________________________ Haha I haven't played either yet so I'm missing out until graphics card prices normalise. I was surprised you have Trails in the Sky so I was expecting a few more story driven RPGs. ____________________ I might do RDR at some point. I tried to play it last year and it was good for the first 1/2 hour to an hour. Wish there was a PC port tho.

  19. What games are you currently playing?

    I feel like spluging on a few PS4 games. SOTC, Ni no Kuni, Persona 5, Horizon. I'm just not sure whether to wait and play these games on the eventual Ps4 pro purchase or play them on my Ps4.

  21. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    gintama ended for this season. back to being depressed with how shit anime is.
  22. Nintendo Switch (new console)

    xeno2 has really left a mark on me. excellent game, such a fun battle system that with a bit of refinement / importance in positioning, could be one of the best ever next xenoblade.
  23. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    The only thing City lack is their players having experience in the champions league. However that can be quite significant as seen by Juventus versus Spurs. Some of their best players like Sterling have impressed A LOT this season, but its at the business end where you can start to become defined as world class IMO. I think its not a fore-gone conclusion City beat Liverpool. Liverpool have possibly one of the best players in the world on current form in Salah who can turn a match on its head. Sadly the flip side is we have an awful defence that is probably going to ship goals given how amazing City's attack is. It should be very very entertaining if no one gets sent off. I still can't help but like: 1. Barcelona - as they have the best player in the world and they're playing a lot more pragmatically; and they've already won the league 2. Real Madrid - I feel like Madrid have more winners in their squad; what city lack, Madrid have in abundance. I'm talking about your last minute equalizers from Sergio Ramos or Ronaldo... They're just drenched in history I'd probably put Barca or Bayern as favorite right now because they've had very favourable draws,
