Almost done with Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne HD Remaster now (Switch version).

Also playing Persona 4 on the PS2 with my nephew (slowly), and trying to will myself to go back to Super Paper Mario on the Nintendo Wii. Really disappointed with it, as The Thousand Year Door and The Origami King were both great games.

Playing Gray Matter on the PC.

The PSVR is the best VR system on the market today.

@nessisonett I hope you're enjoying the original Tomb Raider there! You playing PC or PSone?

@colonelkilgore I envy you, experiencing MGS2 fresh for the first time.

@RogerRoger The PS1 version on Vita! It’s been pretty good so far, minus the ridiculous physics and unresponsive controls.

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 ...so that just leaves, what? Audio and graphics?!

In all seriousness, you're not wrong. Despite having played them since childhood, I always have to wrestle with a period of brain readjustment whenever I return to any of those PSone games. You can't think about how things should work; you just have to work with how they do.

Am glad you're enjoying yourself regardless. Must be a good fit for PS Vita!

@nessisonett @RogerRoger Playing PS1 games that require using the d-pad on the Vita is such a blessing. That Vita d-pad is absolutely wonderful and makes for much better controls than playing the games on PS3. Especially games that have tank controls, such as Tomb Raider and Resident Evil.

Vita is seriously the gift that keeps on giving.

@RogerRoger The combat isn’t awful to be honest and I quite like the level design so yeah, there are some positives I guess 😂

@LtSarge I love the Vita’s D-Pad. I really wish the DualSense just had a bigger version of that instead of the weirdly squishy one it has.

@RogerRoger Speaking of Vita, your praise for Ace Attorney has me curious about the game and if it were available on Vita I’m almost surely take the plunge. I’m not sure why a Vita port wasn’t made, other than the obvious (= the complete abandonment of any Vita development over the last couple years). 😔

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@Th3solution You could do what I'm doing right now with Steins;Gate 0: get the game on PS4 and play it on Vita through Remote Play, given that you have a good connection that is. Considering Ace Attorney is a visual novel though, I don't think it's going to pose that much trouble to experience it through remote play. If the stream gets pixelated, then you can just wait it out. After all, all you're doing is reading and choosing stuff, which makes the games less demanding to play through remote play. I've personally had a great time playing Steins;Gate 0 through remote play on my Vita simply because it's a visual novel.

@RogerRoger yeah, I havent had as much time with it today as I'd have liked (as I had to run some errands) but I'm enjoying it so far.

Seems like quite the technical leap forwards from MGS1... maybe because this is the HD Remake but still looks and feels quite a bit better.

@LtSarge I remember thinking that the PS Vita's D-Pad was particularly sweet, back when I played stuff like CounterSpy, Grim Fandango and Super Star Wars. Ness is right; in comparison, the cheap one shoved on the DualSense feels like four jelly cubes nestled in a sand pit.

@nessisonett Blasting an enemy with dual pistols whilst backflipping away from them never gets old!

@Th3solution Yeah, it's a shame the remastered trilogy didn't come out a little sooner, so that it could've been ported to the Vita. Given the series' origins on GBA and DS, it's surprising how well they translate to home console, but they'd be a great fit for Vita. I had the same Remote Play thought as Sarge, but it'd depend on whether you've mothballed your PS4 or not, as the Vita isn't compatible with the PS5.

@colonelkilgore Oh yeah, despite it being a remaster, the PS2 original blew everybody away at launch. It was one of the first jaw-dropping technical showcases for the console. I still have fond memories of shooting each individual bottle behind the bar, wasting all my ammo. Simpler times!

Started playing Red Steel 2 on Wii today. I remember getting the game like a decade ago and playing it for a couple of hours before I moved on to something else. Now I wonder why I did that because this game is seriously so much fun! I know that it's one of the best games that incorporates motion controls along with Skyward Sword and it definitely delivers. You fight with a katana and depending on how wide your swings are, you do more damage. You can also parry, circle around an enemy and hit them in the back, stab them, perform finishers and more. Not to mention that you also carry around a gun for long range fights, it's kinda like Dishonored in that you both use melee and gun attacks in first-person. This is definitely one of the best Wii games that incorporates motion controls that actually work and I'm so glad to be playing it now as I've needed something new to spice things up among all these "samey" games I've been playing.

Kinda miss the Wii days now as those games would constantly offer a new experience, whether it was by holding the Wii remote sideways, using it normally with the pointer, using it with nunchuck, using it with motion controls and so on. There was a lot of different and refreshing experiences on the system and I miss that, that's what made the system so great compared to the PS3 and 360. I'm so glad that I still have my Wii U as well as a good amount of Wii games to play on it.

I’ve apparently beaten the Peru section of Tomb Raider now. I get yellow polygons instead of grey and green ones.

@Keith_Zissou I started watching it a few months back actually... but stopped the video a part-way in as I didn't want to spoil anything for myself. I might well go back and finish it now as it goes 👍

@Keith_Zissou no problem, I’ve been super busy the last week or two (& am only going to be more busy in the near future) anyway… I appreciate you searching for it though.

Walking battle-tank malarkey huh… I might have to ‘make’ time for that though 😉👍

After recently discovering that I'd made a mistake when I skipped Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution for so long, I've gone back and gathered up all of the franchise's older PS2 games that I'd previously, and perhaps mistakenly, dismissed as unnecessary additions to my collection. That meant going all the way back to the beginning of CyberConnect2's involvement with the No.1 Knuckleheaded Ninja and grabbing both Ultimate Ninja and Ultimate Ninja 2, as well as tracking down a copy of Uzumaki Chronicles, the first of two action RPGs developed by Cavia.

I blasted through the first Ultimate Ninja last week, because it's basically a tech demo disguised as a full game (a trick the developer would repeat when reinventing the wheel for PS3 years later). When the back of the box exclaims that you can "fight as more than 12 playable characters" you know that you're not exactly gonna be occupied for very long, especially when that claim is only possible because two characters, namely Naruto and Sasuke, have unlockable duplicates. Everybody has a story mode to run through, but each one is simply six (or fewer!) fights held together by some slideshow cutscenes. It wasn't all bad, though. The gameplay audio has that old-timey compression sound to it, which I found kinda charming, and all the mechanics of the series' future are present and correct, albeit in slightly off-kilter devolved forms. It was playable, made me smile, and the difficulty was well-balanced throughout.

Today, I've started Uzumaki Chronicles, which apparently had to be butchered in order to release outside of Japan because, back in 2006, we weren't up-to-speed with the anime. To its credit, if I didn't know that certain characters had been cut, I wouldn't be able to tell, so kudos to whoever was forced to localise this game so brutally. Honestly, it's pretty cool. It handles the RPG element of its brawler gameplay with a nifty "shard plate" mechanic, whereby you try and fit various power-enhancing shards into a template and, if you can fill the entire template with no gaps, you get a bonus. Think of it like a classic Resident Evil inventory on steroids. It also looks gorgeous, with some truly impressive environments which have been kept on the small side in order to increase detail. Looks like it'll last me a little longer than Ultimate Ninja did, which'll make for a nice change of pace before I tackle Ultimate Ninja 2.

Oh, and I'm also playing 2D platformer Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Council 4 on NDS, after which I'll play 3D dungeon-crawling beat 'em up Ninja Destiny 2.

And then I can start on the two PSP games I've still got listed in my backlog. Yay!

Started my third playthrough of MGS2 this evening and pretty much flew through the tanker this time. Hopefully I’ll have sufficient dog tags that I’ll only need to run the plant on playthroughs 4 and 5.
