What are you playing this week?


#601

I played Monster Hunter pretty much nonstop since it came out, and now I’m taking a little break. I played Bayonetta 1 on Switch pretty much all day yesterday. I lost all my skills from when I first played it in like 2009, which is rough.


#602

I just finished Owlboy, which I enjoyed for the most part, and am working through Horizon Zero Dawn which is excellent so far. I know I’m a bit late to the party for both games but taking down robot dinosaurs with a bunch of ropes and some arrows is quite satisfying.


#603

Finished Bayonetta on the Switch. I still love it despite some incredibly rough edges.

Also I’m gonna say it: I hate the Peach and Daisy costumes.

E: oh dear I forgot about the dance


#604

I’ve been playing Okami so much this week. It’s so good. Issun can be a bit much at times (or a lot of the time), but the combat is excellent, the music is wonderful, the aesthetic is incredible, and the writing is great.


#605

Into the Breach has me swearing at it a whole lot, but probably about the same amount of swearing I did at FTL. It was such a hurdle clearing the first island, but man did it feel satisfying!

Really blows my mind how these two games manage to make so many complex systems really easy to understand.


#606

Been playing Monster Hunter World like it’s the only game I have lately, but once Horizon Zero Dawn finishes downloading, I’m probably going to start playing that game the same way.


#607

I’ve been afflicted by some kind of video-game schizophrenia this week and have been hopping between Into the Breach, Persona 5, Kingdom Come Deliverance and MGS:V.
Normally I can only play one thing at once but I got the hankering to get back to Persona 5 (after I stopped mid-palace 74 hours in a few months back because I played 74 hours in a week and was worried I was dying) while I was mid-Kingdom Come, then Into the Breach came out and I had to play that and for some reason decided that now is also the time to begin a second playthrough of Phantom Pain.


#608

I beat Okami and it fuckin ruled, so I played Iconoclasts, which was good, but goddamn heavy at times. Now I’m playing Alwa’s Awakening because I got it for $3.30 and it looked interesting, and I’m a sucker for Metroidvanias.


#609

Playing through Snake Pass. Pretty good puzzle platformer with a unique control style, and a great soundtrack. Though that unique control scheme sometimes bites it in the ass when things try to get complex.


#610

Plugged in the hitbox and screwed up a combo trial about 1400 times (it counts your attempts!) on Them’s Fighting Herds.

That’s like playing it, right?


#611

Just finished Horizon Zero Dawn + DLC and got the platinum as well, what a good game.


#612

I just finished every other trophy except the new game + ones, which I’ll get started on soon, so I agree, it is a very good game. :ok_hand:


#613

I finally got to the point where I left off years ago in Okami by playing the HD version on PC. Think I’m about 2/3rds of the way through, but still have a ways to go.

A lot of the conversations are unnecessarily long in an otherwise amazing game.


#614

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition has been eating away my time recently. It’s not even the best Street Fighter game,yet I can’t stop playing it. I’m just having too much fun with Strider Zeku to stop.


#615

I have a general group I play Player Unknown Battleground with, but I’ve been playing a lot of single player stuff, just to find some good stream games


#616

finally finished assassin’s creed: origins just in time for me to get detective pikachu this friday


#617

been bouncing between nier automata for a potential lp and grinding through eureka anemos in ffxiv…ohhhh boy eureka anemos

also hayley is celes chere now


#618

We finished Kirby Star Allies and man that final part of the game was an amazing spectacle.


#619

I just finished playing AER: Memories of Old, which was pretty good…mostly? Like I really, really loved it: the music, the atmosphere, the puzzles, the chillness, and then I hit the endgame and it just… it felt like they gave up? The game’s a whirlwind of interesting worldbuilding and beautiful design and “what’s going to happen” all to end in a sad little wheeze. Honestly disappointing. I’ll go play it again to 100% the achievements, might be worth playing around with on days you really need to destress because it’s very calming, but playing to beat again? Not required.


#620

Just finished Detective Pikachu because of course I did.

You really need to be in it for the talking Pikachu since the cases are meant to be solved by 6 year olds, just barely one step up from the standard RPG solution of “Just keep talking to people until the plot moves forward”.
