Finally got the plat for AC odyssey, took a long time, but it was fun. Guess ill dive into the dlc soon.

Congrats @ellsworth004 I haven't yet played Odyssey myself, but from what I hear it's a gigantic task. And there I was, thinking getting the plat for AC: Syndicate was already something to be proud of.

@Kidfried It's one of my favorite games, period. All I'll say is that the experience as a whole is much stronger than the sum of its parts, and that it's a story that could only have been told as a video game. What have you seen so far, if you don't mind me asking?

Also, are you playing on Hard mode? If you beat all the escape rooms on Hard difficulty, you'll unlock a hidden scene at the end after the true ending. (Not really a spoiler, btw, but some people like to be surprised by 'secrets' in games).

@Ralizah If I remember well I'm playing on hard difficulty. Not sure how I'd check that, though.

I just finished the old man ending, but I've made quite some progress in the other storylines.

@Kidfried I think you can check on the flowchart. But if you're not switching them to easy difficulty manually, I think they default to hard.

Although I think the very first elevator puzzle needs to be replayed on hard difficulty to fully complete all of them, as it defaults to easy, if my memory serves right.

There's a lot more route juggling in this one, huh? While it's easy to settle into apathy later on, I found the prisoner's dilemma choices in VLR to be far more impactful than anything in 999 early on.

@Kidfried not hard just takes awhile, 100+ hours for me, but i did alot of side stuff. I didnt care much for syndicate, guess i was tired of the old AC format when it released.

I finally finished off Yakuza Kiwami yesterday (77% trophy completion).

At 45hrs, it felt much more streamlined compared to Zero which took me literally twice as long. Despite that, it didn't feel like it was missing anything. The story was still well written and the sub stories still as ridiculous as before.

I really enjoyed the combat again and though the progression of the dragon style from useless to super powerful worked well. The Majima Everywhere fights to unlock the techniques was good fun and never too intrusive.

I love this series and have Kiwami 2 to play at some point.

Shadow of the tomb raider and it was awesome

I just beat Modern Warfare again, but now the Remastered. So, uh... some missions were just as good playing them now as 10 years ago. Which is quite an achievement for a ten year old game, really.

Not all of them, though. In some missions it does feel a bit like you're alternating between a shooting gallery and a cinematic experience. Much in the same way as I would expect Uncharted 2 would feel.

It's still quite an iconic game, that really set a new bar for the series and cinematics in these kind of games. It's nowhere near the top 10 single player experiences from last generation for me, but I don't think a Call of Duty could ever be that for me anyway.

Totally agree on pretty much all points. I was surprised by how much I liked Kiwami, after hearing from so many people about how it would be a lesser experience compared to Zero. Never felt it that way.

Only I have way less completion than you. Looking through my trophies, I think that's down to me not having engaged in the dating stuff (?). I still have it on my hard drive, though, so might pick it back up again when I have some extra time on my hands. 2022 or something?

@Kidfried I just missed out on the 100% completion trophy, replay on legendary, complete the climax battles, and complete all of Haruka's requests because life is too damn short.

Thrillho

Kidfried

@Thrillho I think I was halfway through Haruka's requests when she ordered me to win some luck based game a few times in a row. Which I didn't succeed in. And also marks the last time I played the game.?

Terrible idea to make that into a trophy.

@Ralizah love your take on games always! Thanks for the impressions.

@Ralizah Panic on Funkotron was one of my favourite Mega Drive games and it sounds like some of the annoyances with that game still persist which is quite impressive over 20 years later.

@Kidfried Thanks! This was one of my more anticipated games this year, being a huge fan of the Genesis original.

It's not a home-run, but I definitely appreciate that we finally got a sequel catered more toward fans of the first game.

@Thrillho I should probably try Panic on Funkotron again. I kind of gave it short shrift because of my disappointment about the change to the gameplay style. Seems like it has a lot of fans, though.

@Ralizah Conversely, I never really played the original but Panic was more of a story driven game. It was reasonably simple but getting the perfect ending was quite tricky. It was a perfect game for me when I was about 10

My younger sister was a rubbish Earl to my Toejam though.

New Super Luigi U (as part of NSMBU Deluxe on Switch).

I kinda put this off for a week or two after completing the main game because I heard it was the more difficult of the two (I actually wasn't even really planning on completing it), but it kept nagging at me at the back of my mind, so I decided to give it a shot and am glad I did. Just like the main game, while the art direction is pretty generic (though they did add in numerous amusing Luigi references in the level design), the game itself is good fun, and even though it was a bit harder than the main game the levels were more brief so it had a real "just one more time" pull to it. Many times I just intended to play to a world's mid tower, but ended up completing the entire world (I actually completed the final 3 worlds all today). I probably won't go for all the Star Coins & Secret Exits, but I'm more than content with that.

Finally reached the end of Xenoblade Chronicles 1 (New 3DS version). It took me a while to get into the game, but overall I really enjoyed it. The story is a bit slow in places, but when the story's at it's best it is truly excellent. The characters are well written, and the game does a great job with character development.

As for gameplay, it took me a long time to get used to the battle system. I'm so used to running around trying to dodge every attack in games, but combat doesn't work like that in Xenoblade. Instead it's closer to a turn based RPG, where you need to decide what attacks to do and when. It took a while to figure out a good flow to battling.

There were a few minor issues I had with this game. Firstly, the side quests. There are a huge number of side quests, but a lot of them were boring or tedious. Most of them were either just killing a few enemies or finding some items. Secondly, buying new equipment gets annoying. It involves too much back and forth switching from the shop menu to your equipment menu to compare new items with your old items, and then further switching to equip the new item you just bought and sell the old item.

Thirdly, the game was alright at guiding the player along the path and teaching the player the basics, but there's plenty of things that could have been clearer. For instance, I don't recall it ever mentioning that you can trade items with NPCs, and I was a long way into the game before I realised that was possible. Also, it was confusing what attacks could and couldn't be blocked when you see a future vision.

Overall I'd say that Xenoblade Chronicles 1 is great, though that's mainly due to the brilliant story. The gameplay was alright, but I didn't think it was that amazing.

Finished TellTale's The Walking Dead - The Final Season last night and I'm honestly so emotional. Clementine's story has been amazing and if any of you have interest in getting your emotions played with, I suggest you play TWD. My heart sunk at certain moments (especially the finale) and I bloody cried when it finished.

Seriously, if you're looking for an incredible story and lots of amazing memories, play the series. You won't regret it. Trust me.

Persona 5. Finally reached the credits after getting the bad ending. I'd like to know how I could have avoided getting killed off by the big bad and get a better ending, but I'm not going to look online for the solution. Likewise I'll avoid looking up what other endings there are. It'll be much more fun to figure it out for myself whenever I eventually feel like replaying this or getting P5R. Edit: Never mind, I had one idea of how to advance, and it looks like it's going to help, so I'll give it a try another day.

Persona 5 is easily in my top two PS4 games, not sure whether this is my favourite or Nier Automata. It's also my favourite game that involves battling strange creatures and trying to get them to join your team, yes I enjoyed this even more than my favourite Pokemon game Soul Silver. I really enjoyed my time with this game.

Things I loved about this: the characters, the story, the general look and feel of the game, and the wonderful soundtrack.

There's very little I disliked about Persona 5. If I had to pick something then the story occasionally drags on a bit too much, and at certain points of the game I would have liked more battling and exploration of dungeons.

@Ralizah I got a different ending that involved whether or not you give out specific information at the end of the interrogation.

Initially I assumed it would be like Shin Megami Tensei where by the time you get a bad ending it's way too late to go back and make changes. At first I thought I failed because confidants weren't high enough or something. That's why I thought I was done with this game, but some nagging doubt in the back of my mind made me go back and try out the last bit again with a different choice.
