Woahhh, language! Anyhow I'm playing lots of sims 3 again.

We'll say whatever the ZART we NARF want to!

 

And playing DA:O. Still don't get how a game released almost a decade ago seems stabler and more fun than the two that followed it.

Exactly what's the hook in that sort of game? Not a sarcastic "it sucks", asked seriously. When I watched the trailers it didn't really look that interesting to me but I'm seeing lots of "man this game is great" all over. Is it exploration? Combat? Lots of flashy powers?

Never played Pokemon XY, so I'm going through X, once I'm done I plan to try and make a living dex. I tried to do it on my White2, I got so far then I got bored of the game....I'll just tale my time with it in between university work

It's the lore, the mountains of dialogue, the dozens of different ways you can go about doing a given task ( burn down door, knock down door, pick lock and stuff like luring enemies into oil or puddles to fry or electrocute them with your spells)  The entire world is just very detailed and lends itself beautifully to story telling

Playing Crusader: No Remorse currently, was pleasantly surprised on hearing the music in the first area.It makes me look forward on hearing what the tracks are in later missions even though I'm really trying not to spoil myself by listening to the ost that's on youtube.

I'm playing through persona 5. I borrowed it from a friend in February--it was pretty hard to get into/I wasn't expecting a "glorified" visual novel. In fact, I only just passed the actual date in real life (I'm in Nov. now). I was joking for a while about how I was playing it in real time :P. It's grown on me quite a bit though.

I definitely think it's a bit silly that saving is so infrequent in the "normal" difficulty. Makes some sense for hard since the point is that you should gear/equip personas appropriately for the dungeon. But I gave up on doing it in hard after I realized I just wanted to see the story and losing 30 minutes every time I lost a fight was going to prevent me from ever finishing. As for the story, it's been OK but dear god--the entire thing could probably be summarized in like ~3-ish hours? I'm 80 hours in!

OTOH, the game feels really unique to me having mostly played western games. I really like it's style: how consistent/flashy/opinionated the art is in the UI, that they used text messaging for communication, the sound effects during combat, the actual art for all of the personas, etc. I think those are all amazing and have made it worth playing so far. But boy was it hard to get into coming from a world where I was complaining about how the save files seemed unnecessarily large or an ability seemed overpowered/poorly balanced. This game is like "fuck all of that--we're doing our own thing and you're gonna like it." I do!
