Bloodborne: Complete Edition
Nightmare Creatures.

Updated about 1 week ago

★★★★★ Hidetaka Miyazaki returns to the director's chair for the true follow-up to Dark Souls. Bloodborne succeeds at reinventing the series' traditional combat with a speedy and stylish flair not dissimilar to character action games such as Devil May Cry. The result is a game that feels as good in your hands as it looks onscreen, as Miyazaki brings literary horror influences like H.P. Lovecraft to bear in designing his gothic Victorian netherworld. Simply put, this is a must own PlayStation 4 title.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II
The first game was good...this is even better. [Act 2 - Part 2]

Updated about 2 months ago

So far, Trails of Cold Steel II poses one major question: do convenient, incremental improvements over its predecessor - onscreen notifications of the player's progress towards completion, new characters to play as and added wrinkles to the combat system, fun rock/paper/scissors Mech battles that channel fond memories of Xenogears - make up for the fact that this sequel largely sees the player visiting areas recycled from the first game?

I'm enjoying my PS4 a lot so far, though I haven't had a chance to play a lot of stuff on it yet. I just got started with Bloodborne recently and that seems like it'll be pretty fun (and brutal). I probably won't start up Dark Souls II until I'm done with Bloodborne, but I can let you know when I'll be getting started with that. I was planning on playing with Gendo7, so the three of us could play together like we did with Demon's Souls, which was a fun time.

How have you been liking your PS4 so far?

Oh don't even get me started on that unnecessary piece of shit you're forced to use at practically every turn. I hated every moment with the Batmobile, it had no place in that game.

I have also somewhat gotten to a better place, started back to work today. Missing the first hour of Monday streams sucks, but money is nice, plus apparently I have a higher pay rate than I used to. I was so damn sore when I got off work today, though. Guess I have to build tolerance back up after not being there for months (was there for 3 years before that, so as a result I know way more than most people there who do my old job and I'm kind of famous there)

Hi friends! I'm back after a stressful month or so of moving out of an unhealthy living situation. Whew! I'm celebrating by downloading Yakuza 5.

Jk jk, this game is just massive. I'm finally in the Final Chapter, but I've been told it's an extremely long chapter (well, if you make it long, because there's a ton of side stuff to do) and I'm clocking in over 70 hours. Admittedly, I'm kinda a sucker for optimization, so I probably spent too much time grinding out sepith and money to get all the top quartz & weapons at each point in the game, but yeeeesh this is a meaty game.

I'm actually really hoping that the sequel grabs me more... I'm not sure whether it's because I kinda got over-saturated by working on the game, but I wasn't really super into this one. Trails in the Sky SC was like, EASILY one of the best games I played in 2015, so I was pretty excited for Cold Steel, but it just doesn't do anything for me. When it comes to Trails, though, Falcom definitely seems to have a habit of using an entire game as "set up" and then the sequel is just face-meltingly intense with twists and turns. I kinda felt this way about the first Trails in the Sky game right up until the end of the last chapter ("This is soooo loooong, where is this going, what's the poooooint" ), and then it all clicked for me all at once and I absolutely love it now... so maybe that'll happen here too! I'm actually jonesin' for us to get Trails in the Sky the 3rd localized so I can QA it... because it's my duty and definitely not because I'm going nuts wanting some questions answered.

To be honest, Fie is my fave girl. But Laura is too pretty to not use for themes!

Nice, I hope you enjoy VLR!

I'm curious though, I noticed in your 999 review, you were disappointed in the conclusion. Did you get the True Ending?

This may seem a bit silly, but probably the thing I'm hoping for the most is the PS Neo will either allow external hard drives of normal 3.5" drives. I'm hurting for space, I only have 400ish GB left, and that's after deleting roughly a quarter of my collection. I've been trying to spread out my purchases to the Xbox One, but it's really hard not to just buy for the PS4, especially now that my cousin has a PS4, so I can just bring games and saves to his place, and play my digital games there. Might even be able to skip the back and forth USB and go back and forth on the cloud via PS+?

Other than that, definitely the Sonic 25th anniv game. I absolutely loved Generations and hope this is either a game like Generations for handhelds or different zones from the classic/modern games, or ideally just classic, or a format like PS3 Generations, only for handhelds. The Master System/Game Gear Sonic games are immensely under represented. I've been thinking about streaming Triple Trouble, it's probably my favorite handheld Sonic game, even now probably. I played it so much of the Game Gear that the cart fried...as in, it just...stopped working. Other games worked fine, but TT wouldn't even power on. I eventually went through three Game Gears before I just said screw it and bought a Retro Freak, where I can build up my collection even more, and stream games that I normally couldn't, like Game Gear and GB/C/A without the Super Gameboy or Gameboy Player.

I wouldn't mind learning more about Whore of Orient or possibly an LA Noire sequel, or a Dante's Inferno 2. I actually really liked that game. Maybe a God of War 4 finally? It's about time for it. I know my cousin is looking forward to Kingdom Hearts III, and possibly more remasters, since he never had a PS3 or 360. I think that his girlfriend is the type that won't like too many video games around, though, he had to hide the last two I gave him (Dying Light and Wolfenstein, FOV thing)

As for RE plots, I wouldn't mind seeing more Rebecca, possibly Billy or Steve, or Alex Wesker (Albert if it's a reboot, I suppose, but I may not know how reboots work) Definitely more Claire, preferably with Ali Larter again.

Well, I just upgraded to Windows 10 after Microsoft being a sneaky bitch and making the cancel button upgrade anyway. Last night, my laptop starting upgrading on its own, and when the prompt came up tonight on my desktop, I decided that I didn't really have a choice and went for it.

I'm pretty sure that there will never be an actual Castlevania game, even another Metal Gear seems to be pushing it, especially after Kojima left. I always thought that there should have been some metroidvanias on 3DS like GBA and DS, they could have easily made them before Konami decided that they hated money and wanted to destroy itself. We never did have a game in 1999 or whatever with Julius Belmont, did we? Just...what was it, Aria and Dawn of Sorrow? I thought Aria was probably the best handheld one, followed by...probably Lament of Dissonance, then maybe Portrait of Ruin. I still haven't played Circle of the Moon, and I hated Dawn of Sorrow for its touch crap. I thought Order of Ecclesia was kinda weird, but it did have that awesome throwback to Castlevania 2 at the end. Of the post Rondo console ones, I've only played Symphony of the Night. I own the two PS2 ones, but have yet to get to them...and I may be able to emulate the N64 ones on my PSP, or whenever I get that super system that allows even more systems to play than the Retro Freak, which in turn allows for more than the Retron 5. I'm super excited for Bloodstained! That, Yooka Laylee, Elysian Shadows, Soul Saga, and probably Shenmue III (only so low because I have yet to play the first two, I own both on Dreamcast)

Thanks! I'm honestly surprised that anyone actually reads people's page notes, I guess, I dunno. I thought that most people just ignored those. But more likely that's in part due to a friend having that exact thing in his note "Who reads these anyway?" that made me think about it a bit and come to that conclusion.

My most vivid console launch (if you could call it that) by far was the PS3...slim. I was one of those crazy people at Black Friday back when it launched in 2009 at Gamestop at 2am. I did a similar thing for the first two World of Warcraft expansions, back when I actually played that. Never again, I don't need any help feeding my insomnia. Then again, I suppose you could argue that that makes me a better candidate for those sort of midnight releases.

Well, I've been hearing rumors of RE7 going back to the series' roots (which wasn't RE6 supposed to do that? If it did, it only did it for Leon's campaign) and a series reboot...which...I'm not sure how I feel about that, I've never actually been with a series through a reboot, I got into Tomb Raider only a few years ago. Other than that, I know Sega will be there, so maybe a Yakuza announcement?

Hi. Saw you at Pally's stream tonight, and you seem pretty cool, so...

I'm kinda surprised you didn't list Castlevania among your favorite IPs, given your name.
