Yakuza 0
A Tale of Two Cities

Updated about 4 weeks ago

★★★★★ After the increasingly over-the-top and comic book-like storylines of Yakuza 3 and 5, the largely stripped down and gritty origins of Yakuza 0 register as something of a breath of fresh air. The game is made better by focusing on the core characters of Kiryu and Majima, the two driving forces behind the series, and if the backdrop of Kamurocho started feeling a bit old hat several sequels ago, at least the Eighties era coat of paint gives it something of a new sheen. This is a series highlight.

★★★★★ Kratos is back and, while his anger may have been tempered by both time and fatherhood, his series still deserves to stand shoulder to shoulder with the best the Playstation 4 has to offer. Cory Balrog, director of the fan favorite second entry, returns for this long-awaited sequel, in which Kratos trades in his chains for a more methodical, Dark Souls-inspired combat system that - along with the immersive narrative - makes this one of 2018's standout titles. Action fans can't go wrong here.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II
I feel like I've been in this Final Dungeon for almost 10 hours. [Final Boss Prep]

Updated about 9 months ago

So far, Trails of Cold Steel II poses one major question: do incremental but very convenient improvements over its predecessor make up for the fact that this sequel largely sees the player visiting areas recycled from the first game? Cold Steel II benefits from features like onscreen notifications of the player's progress towards completion, new characters to utilize in battle, rock/paper/scissors Mech battles that channel fond memories of Xenogears, and more.

Thanks. Your empathy is appreciated. Everything up until now has been tough but fair, but I guess they decided it was about time for the player to traverse an area that was as cheap and annoying as possible.

I decided to go back and finish exploring the Forbidden Woods first, and I found the rune that greatly increases Frenzy resistance. That helped immensely. I was finally able to activate the shortcut that leads straight to a boss that consistently wipes the floor with me.

Oh well. We'll get there eventually, little by little.

I liked the general plot as muddled and obtuse as it was of the first game better, to be honest, but this one is just much more fun to play. I really enjoyed it.

Hmm... I don't think any particular area of Dark Souls III has given me more trouble than any of the others. I found Lothric Castle difficult, but I think that's because I went there a bit too early. Apart from that, it's hard to say. Dragon Slayer Armor has been the toughest boss for me so far.

I have a New3DS and while that helped with MonHun4U's camera controls compared to the original 3DS, I still found it super clunky. I mean, clearly it's not unplayable because tons of people hunted plenty of monsters in the 3DS games but it was still the #1 thing keeping me from enjoying them. (And then World came along, gave me a second analog stick and even made me fall in love with the weapon I found almost impossible to use with the 3DS's camera - the bow.)

It might still be worth a try to see if it's as much of an issue for you as it was for me? Some friends of me got used to it just fine after a while, but yeah, my experience with it was... not the greatest.

I'm super glad it's over. Like Demon's and Dark were tough games, but were absolutely fair in their design. Dark 2 Electric Boogaloo was nothing short of frustrating from beginning to end.

I would love it if after Horizon, Guerrilla Games returns to the ideas they started with Killzone Shadowfall on a brand new IP. Like how Kojima took inspiration from Metal Gear Solid for Death Stranding, I hope Guerrilla Games takes inspiration from Killzone to make a new game. I really want them to do their The Last of Us (although what I played of Horizon: Zero Dawn is pretty close to that for them). There's a niche that hasn't been filled with the absence of Half-Life 2 in shooters.

Indeed. I love that game so much (despite its flaws), and the quirky characters are a large part of why.

Your thoughts about Killzone Shadowfall sum up my thoughts perfectly. People expected it to be a COD war fare shooter -- but it wasn't that at all.

Just don't do the Platinum. LOTS of grinding for multiplayer.

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.
