@Jecht_Ultima See, I never had even the slightest issue with grinding. I reached level 50 with half the game felt. Although I have cleared every single question mark in the game out of some weird need.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@nessisonett I did the same thing with GOT went everywhere and exlpored everything even though I got nothing for doing it lol.

@Jecht_Ultima You need to do it in AC Origins for the platinum but in this one it’s optional. I actually quite liked the monotony of it.

@nessisonett Yeah I enjoy it too if I'm really into the setting like GOT, I'd probably enjoy doing it in Odyssey as I rather like Greek mythology.

Persona 5 Royal.

An uneven experience. Despite that, I'd like to play Strikers because I thought the cast was a real high.

@nessisonett Unlike those damn feathers in AC 2!

@JohnnyShoulder My brother recently finished AC2 on PS4 and I was going to get the platinum while he moved onto Brotherhood. Collected a feather and it said 21/100 feathers. Not amused.

I can't recall if you mentioned it before... Is Persona 5 Royal your first Persona game @Arugula or have you played others in the series?


Good to hear you quite liked Ultra Despair Girls @crimsontadpoles

I said before when I finished it myself back in March but I think this game did wonders for Toko Fukawa whom I did like the idea of but felt they were vastly underutilised before and rather one note.

Quite liked the puzzle rooms too though I wished they were a bit harder to figure out personally as they were a bit on the easy side for me.

I know you're a man of few words @Arugula from those corking movie reviews of yours so I'll take it you'd give the edge to P4 Golden? Or did have some problems with that too?


They had a great chimstry with Komaru too @crimsontadpoles (who had some pretty great lines herself)

As for the villains? Yeah... The whole kid angle really made me quite uncomfortable being both a primary school teacher and a mother. Especially with the backstory of Kotoko (Which I saw coming after Masuru's breakdown before the boss fight) and yeah... That made my skin crawl.

Monica's plan came off kinda stupid (Which seeing as she's a bratty little kid still kinda makes sense I guess?). Jataro was probably my favourite of the group thanks to Michelle Ruff's awesome voice work for him... Creepy at times but I got a few chuckles from her performance too.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy I usually have more to say but generally try to keep my comments as succinct as possible for a few reasons. I drive for a living and days are very long so my moments of interaction naturally have an element of brevity to them. I also don't own a computer, tablet or anything else, the phone is literally it and typing on it is awkward, I find. And lastly sometimes less can be more, I try not to waffle and get to my point.

Anyway, I really liked the world building, cast and character interaction of Persona 5 and loved spending time with it. Even when I wasn't playing it I found myself wondering what the kids might be up to as if they were real it was all so well fleshed out.

The story was where I lost interest somewhat. I thought the game never hit the highs of the first palace though they were all very inventive and Mementos was particularly tedious.

I never really got into the actual "Persona" side of things either, the collecting, fusing and so forth just bored me.

The style of game really lends itself to pick-up-and-play so the fact P4G was on Vita really helped its case and easy to see why Switch gamers fall over themselves at the prospect of a port.

As a matter of preference I definitely put P4G higher on the totem pole but that could be due to a number of factors. The portability being one. Another being the fact I'm a chunk older now and I really feel like a lot about Persona 5 is designed with a large appeal to a younger crowd.

I will say that while things could get a little busy on-screen, the art style and music of the game was absolutely top shelf from top to bottom and front to back. I'm still humming jingles from the game even now. And who dressed these kids? Very stylish!

Well, would you look at that? You got me to type more than 5 words. 😉

Half-Life: Opposing Force on PC. It's a standalone expansion of the original Half-Life, and was released in 1999. Opposing Force takes place during the events of Half-Life from the perspective of one of the marines sent to Black Mesa.

Overall, it's a fine game. I'm not too keen on first person survival shooter games against horrific creatures, but I still somewhat enjoyed this.

Resident Evil Village. Definitely in the top 3 of my favorite Resident Evil games. It borrowed all the right things from Resident Evil 4. Loved it 9.5/10

I take 0.5 from the score because I can't revisit the boss areas like the Castle, Beneviento House, Reservoir and the Factory.

Finally beat the original DOOM, a game I can check off my bucket list. Well, I haven’t attempted Thy Flesh Consumed yet but that’s a bonus thingy so don’t know if I’ll attempt that or move onto DOOM 2.

Ahh I see @Arugula! Well I appreciate you taking the time to give me a nice long answer (I actually wish I could talk so succinctly as yourself at times because I just can't seem to stop waffling most the time... Like right now!)

I agree with you on the first palace, defintely the highlight of the game for me. Did quite like the fourth palace as well, though the resolution to Futaba's arc seemed a bit rushed and brushed aside, getting over her problem far too easy.

I actually didn't mind the randomness of the dungeons in the previous games... But I wasn't a big fan of mementos myself as well. Especially in just the vanilla version of P5. The boring music for the area didn't help either.

And I most certainly agree with you that the art direction is rather nice and the game oozes style.

As I've already said before on the forums too many times to count I'm not a big fan of everything else it does though myself... Like the story being a bit of a damp squib.

And I'm not quite sure how to this end this rambling... So... Here it is I guess! 😂

That's Miles Morales finished for me at around the 22hr mark.

Really good game that looks fantastic too (I even loved the MCU style credits!). It feels just as good as I remember the original being but the venom attacks give it something new. The story is well done and the relatively short length of it means that it doesn't feel like there's too much filler in there at all.

That final boss is a bit of a step up though! I think I might have died once in the game up to that point but then five or six times in that fight.

Will definitely go back for NG+ at some point as that will be a fairly quick affair to knock off the final trophies.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy I agree. While I may seem critical, I definitely enjoyed it enough to be interested in playing Strikers and P6. I just didn't love it like so much of the Internet appears to.

Hitman 3

I didn't enjoy as much as the previous games but the final level was a huge highlight. Fantastic way to finish the trilogy.

@Arugula Nice, and agreed about the final level, as well. A lot of the hardcore gameplay folks didn't like it, but I thought it was brilliant. Very memorable.
