If anyone enjoys the Dark Souls series you should try Nioh. It's so similar to Dark Souls you'd think they'd get in trouble with the law for copyright or whatever, but the game is supposed to have really good reviews. Dark Souls in an ancient Japanese setting pretty much.

Nioh does look pretty good. Just a shame I don't have a PS4 :P

Torment Tides of Numenera soon!

Battle brothers, neato turn based game that's about to hit 1.0, pretty good combat n stuff do like

Deus Ex Mankind Divided DLC now that all the story DLC has gotten a release

Caves of Qud, don't know if I mentioned this but it's a pretty good roguelike honestly

Project Cars: bought on sale and refunded, body was not ready for a sim heavy racer, no not at all

The Enchanted Cave 2: Flashback to my past playing Kongai on Kongregate and all the other cool flash games on there, love

Hitman episodic reboot.  This game is actually really good and the 15 dollars for the first level of so is one of the best purchases I've ever made.  It's the perfect "I am time poor" AAA, gives me just the amount of hitman I want with about 5-10 hours and 1-2 levels, then I get bored and move onto another game and just leave it.  

Shadowverse TCG: Literally Hearthstone, Literally.  

Enderal: finished my playthrough of this, I'll be back once the DLC type relase hits.  Didn't enjoy it as much as Nehrim but that's mostly because Skyrim's gameplay is really dated, it's been 6 years AAA games have moved on a ton.  

80 Days.  Best ios/android game bar none.  Compared to clash of clans n shit this game is like jesus.

games:

 

fall out new vegas (pc) w/graphics mods - dropped the game for now, about halfway through and not invested in the factions at all.. i honestly dont give a fuck about any of them, idk what it is about western rpg telling but its so behind in regards to JRPG personality

Hopefully will pick it back up but its just not holding my attention.

 

trails: cold steel Ps3 - fucking hell, only on chapter 4, put 37 hours into this and its beautiful. Its like a really really well written piece of media portraying an intimate story that couldn't be fully realised via any other form of media. unlike new vegas for example, where im tempted to skip text, these guys really know how to deliver a stellar cast and build a slowly evolving plot. 

 

big fan of falcom now. i thought trails in the sky was a fluke of a good game but i think maybe falcom's story telling in RPGs is just borderline ridiculous aslong as you don't mind a bit of linearity and text.

Western RPGs are all about the Dungeons and dragons man, the character sheet>>>>>>>>factional alignment in almost all storytelling.  Especially for the Infinity engine reboots like Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2 and Torment, it's all about the character sheet and the individual protagonist.

Honestly didn't like it that much in the end.  Loved the writing, but the crisis were generally mandatory and mostly awful, really ruined the game for me.  plus the companions weren't that sharp.

Was thinking about picking up Hitman but I haven't committed to it just yet. I realise the game is mainly about replay value but I wouldn't want to finish it in a day or two. There's only so long you can replay levels before you get bored I guess.

I mean that's for the 15 dollar version.  You can buy 7-8 levels for 45 dollars and get the full game.
