What games are you playing?

Finally finished AC: Syndicate. I was gonna go back to finishing Hollow Knight but then I made the mistake of booting up Subnautica and then wondering where 5 hours of my day went.

I'm usually not one for the survive/craft/build/explore type games but the underwater setting is quite amazing...and occasionally terrifying. Especially since to get the better stuff you need to dive continually deeper, where there's less light and the more things are likely to want to eat you.

So yeah, it's got me. Looks like finishing Hollow Knight will have to wait a bit.

I finally, finally caught The Old Hunters in a heavily discounted period (which is still going for anyone interested), and am once again swept into the twisted brilliance of Bloodborne. I love how hodge-podged Yharnam's layout is in this nightmare realm, with these thick, knotty looking threads of yarn (get it?!) splayed through each intersection. The horizon has an alluring bluish/green hue behind the thick and dirty cloud cover that gives off an odd sense of comfort and intrigue. The layout really throws a curveball to anyone familiar, and I'm consistently curious as to where I'll end up next around nearly every once-familiar looking corner.

The enemies...at least those with new weapons...oh man do they mean business. I'm really looking forward to maxing out my newly discovered Beast Cutter blade, and that Boom Hammer is the most formidable thing I've seen anyone swing at me in the game thus far. The fact that the hunter it's attached to is so bloody angered makes it all the better. I've heard the Whirligig Saw is another good one, but I'm getting ahead of myself. I've only scratched the surface of the expansion, finding the loop back to the Hunter's Nightmare before calling it a night. So far it has potential to rival the original Dark Souls DLC, and even surpass it in the weapons department.

I'm still playing Bravely Default. The Ninja is such an awesome job (specially the Karai technique, which forces enemies to target any member of your party that you want); and combined with the Swordmaster (the counter-attack specialist) you pretty much break the game.

Enjoy the Hunters Nightmare! It's just starting...

I'm getting drawn into Dark Souls III, the last of the souls games for me (not counting Demon's, but I don't think I can go back to that one). It's good, it's very much like the first game which is good. Though it's odd how it seems to almost totally ignore the second game's lore. But it's basically a more refined version of the series I already loved, so I quite look forward to experiencing the rest of it.

Although, the only downside I think is that I recently played Bloodborne which, I finally have to admit, is my favorite of all the Soulsborne games. Occasionally as I play I feel like I'd rather be hunting in Yharnam.

I really did like the Old Hunters DLC but some of those bosses are really tough. I had to get help to beat Lady Maria after failing like 50 times(and getting really, really close a couple times). I got to the final boss, tried a couple times to take him down and then decided I was ready to go back and finish the main game at that point.

Also, when you get to the fishing village, look into the water on either side as you approach.

I've played all of them (currently just ankle deep in DS3 though) and even though I started with Demon's Souls, I went back to it after the servers were shut down this spring and it still played better than DS1/2 imo; at least early game. If you have a PS3 might as well at least give it a shot. Some of the most interesting locations and game design of the series.

Thanks for the tip.

I played through the Chalice dungeons before even beating the game, and then did a NG+ run since I missed the "true" ending, but stayed in that cycle for the DLC. I've leveled quite a bit, but Ludwig still had a couple one-shot attacks. Fighting him out in the open is especially dangerous given his superior reach. I've read that the bosses here don't have any special tactics but that didn't seem to be the case with him. His underside has a big weak spot if you get in close, and the nook up the stairs to the right in his arena gives you a good tactical advantage due to his size.

Still Bravely Default. I know this is redundant, but it's almost Halloween and I just got the Vampire job (yeah, me!). Maybe I was underleveled or missing a job, but the boss battle seemed much harder than it should had (and I thought the dragon bosses for the keystones were already difficult). I had to focus on keeping my Ninja getting the boss' attention and evading his attacks, specially the one that drained BP (because the next turn it fueled a devastating attack on the whole party). The victory felt cheap and slow, but it was worth it (if not for the job, for the lore that was revealed)

Ludwig wasn't too bad for me. There's help you can summon and he's got a huge hitbox. Lady Maria is a Hunter-type enemy, but she's really powerful and some of her final phase attacks border on just plain cheating and no NPC help is available. So yeah. It's still a great fight even if it's super fucking difficult.

Terraforming Mars despite the bugs and missing drafting.

Just played Deltarune Chapter 1. Yep! It's Undertale 2.

CaitSeith:
Just played Deltarune Chapter 1. Yep! It's Undertale 2.

According to Fox it isn't, but it feels like a, I guess a re-imagining of Undertale? A reboot?

I'm not really sure. A lot of things feel similar but there's a lot of things that are different. And then there's the end, which makes me wonder exactly how DeltaRune and Undertale are related. Apparently it's gonna be years, if ever, before we see chapter 2.

Anyway, Finished Subnautica. Really good but by the end I was kinda wishing I'd played in Freedom mode which turns off the thrist/hunger meters. After a certain point it was less "Make a notable effort to keep fed/hydrated" and more "feed the meter so it doesn't hit zero". More a chore then anything else.

I am looking forward to the Below Zero Expansion and see how they mix it up.

Started playing AC Origins and so far am digging it. Though the new control scheme is.....interesting. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.

The story isn't, but the theme and gameplay is Undertale taken to the next logical step.

Tried out Bulletstorm since it was free on PSPlus.

Its uh.. rough. Either much of the hype of the game is some seriously rose-tinted nostalgia goggles, or I've been terribly spoiled by games doing everything vaguely interesting it tries to do much better.

Still playing Bravely Default. I'm pretty much at the end, and I just want to comment that I didn't expect a boss fight to literally end with "...and then they banged". LOL

Replaying Daggerfall, actually. While Morrowind is still my favourite Elder Scrolls game (and the first and last game in the series that truly made Tamriel feel like a unique setting), Daggerfall was really the last game that was truly a 'Fantasy Life Simulator' ...

Its randomization and plethora of skills and chracter creation options really does make it an amazing exploratory romp of what game mechanics can be.
