Oxenfree goes on sale quite often. I actually got my copy for free from GOG (on the PC).

It's... OK for what it is. The presentation and story didn't do much for me, and the pacing can come to a crawl at times, but it does a good job with the dialogue, which is surprisingly realistic: characters will talk over each other, trail off, struggle to articulate what they want to say, etc. It also manages to have reasonably convincing "teenager dialogue."

Titanfall 2, such a gem!

@Kidfried Yeah, that "Bacon!" trophy stuck in my memory because I got it by accident. I used a Molotov in combat against some human foes and it popped, and I thought "Hey, neat, I got a thing!" and then when I saw what it was for, I felt awful. The others on the list (shoot fifteen deer in the heart, kill any animal with an explosive, shoot a chicken in mid-air with a fire arrow) are just perverse.

It's a shame, because some of the other trophies are really nice, and a few popped up in surprising, sweet moments. More of them would've been appreciated.

And you're welcome, anytime. If you didn't mind the DLC lists being incomplete, and therefore getting a platinum without the 100% stat, it might be easier but even then you'd have to replay quite a few sections of the game in Score Attack, under some strict conditions. Grindy indeed.

Shadow's list is far better, that one aforementioned animal-related trophy aside. The DLC comes with some replay-related stuff, apparently, but nothing too taxing.

Quick Tomb Raider update. The game is getting better as I'm playing it. I wish I played it sooner, no idea why I didn't.

The camera is a bit weird during the cut-scenes, very shaky, not sure if that was on purpose or not. I also had the game on pause whilst I was cooking dinner, and it decided to unpause after a while, guess that means it wants me playing it more lol.

Kidfried

@Octane I think the shaky camera is on purpose. I notice it in Rise too! It doesn't really bother me, but maybe it's worse in TR2013 reboot?

@Kidfried Oxenfree is often in the PS Store sales, so you shouldn't have to wait that long.

I think I played it at just the right time, as iirc I had just finished a mahoosive game and need a shorter experience.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

@JohnnyShoulder Well, let's hope it's in the next sale. Because by then the last three games I have finished will be Ni No Kuni 2, The Rise of the Tomb Raider and Red Dead Redemption 2.

I definitely need some kind of a palette cleanser before starting either Assassin's Creed, God of War or Dark Souls Remastered after that.

I tend to play multiple things at the same time unless I get really sucked in. I've been on kind of a roll since November completing SotTR, RDR2, DQXI, RE2, AC Odyssey and Thronebreaker in succession.

Now I'm into Night in the Woods (loving it so far, the kooky dialogue is brilliant) which I know will be short then I'm not sure which direction to go in.

@Kidfried Maybe it's a bit more janky in TR2013. I get why they're doing it, but it's a bit much at times, a little too unnatural.

I also find it funny that both this game and TLOU have a "you are trapped and now you're upside down, shoot all the baddies" moment. I had to check, but both came out in the same year. So that's a weird coincidence! Or maybe both copied it from another game

@Octane Im like 90% sure the upside down thing happens in Deadspace 2..but only 90.

Just finished KH3 so I started Gravity Rush 2 and im really enjoying it. Havent played the first one so hopefully it doesn't end up being a huge issue story wise.

@Starburst Never played Deadspace, but I take your word for it

Gravity Rush 1 had a bunch of cliffhangers when it comes to story, all of that is answered in the second one, at least, so they say, I still found it a confusing mess when the credits rolled. It's really one of those games where you need to play both to get what it's all about.

Starburst

@Octane That sucks..finding a copy of the first game for a decent price is so hard for whatever reason.

@Octane @Starburst Gravity Rush is pure Bliss. Personally I liked how the second tied everything together, but then again I never took the plot's intricacies too seriously.

The plot's purpose is to present you with a wonderfully charming world and characters. And its pretty successful at it if you ask me.

@Kidfried I still prefer the first one. It seemed a bit more focused. The second one got a bit too big for my liking; and I still don't know what the final chapter was all about lol.

@Kidfried @RogerRoger @Octane @nathanSF @Frigate @Starburst
It seems like you guys are all touching on games that I actually have ongoing interest in. 😄 - So I’ll try tagging everyone, apologies if I miss someone, but here’s my take.
Oxenfree - I enjoyed it a lot as well, and echo what has been said about the best properties of the game being its uniqueness, solid presentation, and the great dialog and acting. A few nights ago I came really close to pulling it up again to try for the platinum when I needed a break from [the excellent but long-winded] Red Dead Redemption 2. It’s an easy plat, but requires 3 playthroughs, which was a bit much to do in immediate succession (partially due to a few sections that are a little slow like @Ralizah says). But since it’s been about 3 months or so since I completed it, I think I might be ready for another playthrough. I believe the dialog and outcomes are quite different with the different choices you make. Nevertheless, I opted to instead dip into the backlog for a game I haven’t played yet instead but is somewhat similar (ie. indie, adventure style, short and concise, story driven, lots of trophies 😉) and that’s where Virginia came in.
On that side note - I had a little more time with Virginia and I do really like and respect what it’s doing. The lack of any dialog makes for some confusion at first, but it’s much like flipping through a picture book and letting your imagination piece together what’s going on. Still, I am confused but I haven’t finished it yet. The art style is growing on me, as @Kidfried mentioned before, and the fact that the people look very ‘blocky’ and sort of last gen compared to say, Detroit Become Human, is not so off-putting after you realize what the game is going for. And the lesser detailed graphics are part of the indie charm. It does have that artful painting type of feel to it after you spend some time with it.
Tomb Raider - it’s hard for me to be too objective with TR because it has such a special place in my heart. But I’m enjoying reading your impressions of the first two games of the current trilogy. I personally liked all three but lean toward Shadow as the strongest game overall with the first game being a close second, but they each have their strong points, even Rise. As for the animal cruelty trophies, I regret that I achieved each of them, opting to try to disassociate from the actions, despite knowing Lara would never be needlessly cruel like that. “Rotisserie” was actually pretty hard to get and I had to take advantage of a glitch in the game to shoot one of those chickens 😅
Gravity Rush - a game so full of charm, that it a joy to play, but I never completed the second game. Mostly because it is really big and expansive and easy to get side tracked, like a lot of open world games. The first game is much more focused. But yes, the story is of the quirky Japanese ilk (which I love), so it would probably not be too hard to play 2 without playing the first. But you do miss out on some context and character development for sure if you skip the first. My recommendation would be to try to get the first, either remastered or on Vita. It’s a really good experience on Vita.
Dead Space - I think I’d really like to see a remaster of this game on PS4. I missed it last gen and I keep hearing so much about it.

@redd214 Oh, and a shout-out comment for Titanfall 2 also — I have come close to buying it many times to serve as my rare FPS fix, but I have never quite pulled the trigger (pun intended 😆). It’s frequently on sale for less than $10, so one of these days I’ll probably get it. I was hoping for it to be a ‘freebie’ on PS Plus, but doubtful now since they won’t want its multiplayer to canabalize Apex Legends. Or are the Titanfall 2 MP servers even still active?

The first Gravity Rush is pure, simple, and joyous. It's the closest thing Sony will ever make to a Nintendo game.

@Starburst There's barely a plot in the original GR. Just look up the wikipedia article or something to get some context for what's going on.

@Th3solution doubt it will ever come to Plus as EA games typically don't. It's definitely worth the 6 bucks I spent on it. Really solid campaign and the mp was surprisingly fun. I never usually play fps games online but it's great! Only 1 trophy away from getting the Platinum!
