Been slowly working my way through Disney Afternoon Collection. The games are short, so they're nice to play every now and then when you want that NES gameplay between longer games, which can take weeks or even months to finish (I'm probably around halfway through Miitopia which was released in late July, for example).

Finished Ducktales 2 recently on the Disney Afternoon Collection and Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers 2 will be next. Then it's onto the Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 for that retro fix.

@Tasuki @kyleforrester87 @Rudy_Manchego I just finished Dead Space and it was absolutely an excellent survival horror game. The atmosphere is there, the tension is there, they absolutely nailed the inventory management system (having lots of item slots open in the beginning and giving you the chance to add even more slots as the game progresses), the weapons were great and I loved how each of them could be more effective than the other against different enemies (shotgun was good on the tiny critters, flamethrower was good against those tank mini bosses etc) and the upgrade system was absolutely marvellous. The story was pretty good but it wasn't really all that interesting. The plot twists were kinda weak too Nicole wasn't actually real, big surprise, lol. But that didn't bother me that much because the rest of the game was so good and after coming from the first RE, this is like the quintessential survival horror game.

Now the question is whether to continue straight with Dead Space 2 or play Ignition and just have a relaxing time before getting into more scares in the second game. I'd actually enjoy "watching" Ignition just to have some calm moments. What do you guys think?

Thanks to those horrid suits I was able to finish FFXV. I might finish Mad Max, but I'm working on Hellblade.

@KratosMD I remember playing Ignition at a friends but never got it myself. In truth, I can't remember much about it. I'd say get straight into DS2 - time to shoot off some more limbs!

@kyleforrester87 @Rudy_Manchego Forget that I brought it up, I literally just looked up the entire game on Youtube (which was by the way one hour long, lol) and half the game is boring mini-games while the other half is a pretty interesting story about how the outbreak started on the Ishimura. Not really worth buying the game, so I'm going straight to DS2.

@KratosMD Enjoy DS2. It really is super. Leans toward action over survival horror. But it's as Aliens is to Alien.

Some great nods to the original too, one chapter in particular.

Story gets kinda squiffy toward the end but the changes they've made to Isaac and the varied locations and awesome set pieces make up for any negative points.

Plus secondly fire on the rifle is actually useful now.

God I love DS2.

@kyleforrester87 @KratosMD Good choice, get to the good stuff. If you want more story then just watch the western anime 'movies' which are, well just average but quicker than a game to get through.

Finished off the finale of TellTale Games' 'The Walking Dead: A New Frontier.' I had so much fun with it playing it over the last few weeks. I really enjoyed each episode and the ending I got was just superb and honestly couldn't have been better. Roll on 2018 until I get to play season 4 and bring Clementine's story to an end!

Finished Life Is Strange today. Wow, I was not expecting this game to be as heavy as it was. I had to pause several times just to digest certain events.

So yeah, a pretty tense game. It hit me by surprise due to the more down-to-earth tone that's presented, and it just escalated every episode. I initially thought I wouldn't enjoy this, but it did keep me hooked, and I don't regret playing it.

It's definitely worth at least one playthrough.

@DerMeister I agree. I didn't think I was going to like it but ended up really enjoying it. Despite the poor character animations and general lack of graphical prowess, it was a beautiful and touching game and the plot was quite good and, like you said, at times pretty heavy. I like how the decisions you make could affect the story. Telltale should take note.

If the other guy is getting better, then you'd better be getting better faster than he's getting better, or you're getting worse.

Beat Dragon Quest Heroes 2. Mixed feelings. The game is good and a lot of fun to play, but I think the original did it better. Semi-open world aspect hurt it. I also found the the quests to be annoying. Some were timed, others required specific party members and some just had the strangest conditions (carry an egg across a battle field).

Story is good and the art style is beautiful, but the game couldn't hold my attention. Beat the main campaign in just under 30 hours, whereas I spent 60 hours with the original and got the platinum.
Bigger is not always better.

I finished off Heavy Rain just the other day, can't believe I missed out on this when it released.

ApostateMage

Telltale's Game Of Thrones. After finishing the first 3 episodes, I would have said that this was one of Telltale's finest. But in the end, it turned out to be another typical TT game where choices don't particularly matter and story branches seem pointless. I did enjoy playing it, though, especially all of Mira's intrigue in King's Landing.

Finished Dishonored 2. Got the Low Chaos ending and it was pretty good, I guess. The ending basically hinted at the third game, although I don't know if anyone caught onto this at the time. Still, a fun game, good ending and I enjoyed it.

Finished FF12 the Zodiac Age.
It felt INCREDIBLE in may ways, especially coming from something beautiful but traditional, linear and narrative driven as Persona 5. This is more aligned to my current taste and I must admit I appreciate it much more now than when it originally released.

Minor gripes and considerations: Sakamoto's score is very peculiar and filmic, really unlike any other videogame soundtrack I heard and while this adds to 12's uniqueness in a way, I found myself longing for a more immediately recognisable melody. You can tell they must have noticed as well and placed the classic Final Fantasy theme on the title screen.
The characters are almost all well developed and relatable but... a bit bland? I'll fondly remember the 4 bros from XV for years, I camped with them, I listened to their banter, I bonded with them...these guys? IDK. They are nice the way acquaintances are nice.

Just finished Undertale. Not a game I'll be forgetting in a hurry! So full of character. Well worth playing.

@Ralizah No major spoilers, but to answer your question... Pacifist. Tempted to do a neutral/genocide run on my Vita, but I really liked the way the story wraps up on the pacifist route so I almost don't want to. Have you played much of Undertale?

@Quintumply All three routes, with the disturbing and challenging genocide route being my favorite. It's an incredibly different experience: almost like a horror movie. All of the routes tie together thematically to form one greater whole, imo.
