    [V2] What are you currently playing?

    Just finished with a playthrough of the PS3 Ratchet & Clank games for a nostalgia trip, had a lot of fun. Right now I've started a playthrough of the God of War saga in anticipation for GoW Ragnarök. It's cool to look at how the series slowly develops between the instalments. I feel you can...

    Dark Fantasy game recommendations?

    Mass Effect 2 is dark fantasy now? That website's list seems all over the place. Only ones I'd consider proper dark fantasy are Darkest Dungeon and Shadowhearts. The former is a bit off putting due to it's 'hard for the sake of being hard' gameplay and the latter is a rather obscure PS2 game so...

    Dark Fantasy game recommendations?

    I have played persona 3-5 and few of the smt spinoffs. I enjoyed them quite a lot. The settings are more Urban-fantasy than what I'm looking for at the moment but the occult aspect is there. Thanks for the recommendation.

    [V2] What are you currently playing?

    Been busy with Daragon's Dogma Dark Arisen lately. It's a poorly balanced mess with bad quest desing, bad story telling and bad open world design. In spite of that I've been playing it for over a week so it has to be doing something right. Guess it's the atmosphere and occasional bits of...

    Dark Fantasy game recommendations?

    I've been in the mood for some dark fantasy recently, but I haven't had much luck finding ones that scratch that specific itch. I'm looking for a certain kind of atmosphere and mood, so I'm flexible when it comes to gameplay. Settings that deal with the occult and demonic threats, and the...

    What games are on your wishlist?

    Open world design is usually a major turn off for me. If I have ended up enjoying an open world game, it's usually been in spite of rather than because of it. I tend to prefer more compact game worlds where the content and quests are densely packed over massive maps, to avoid the open world...

    What games are on your wishlist?

    I recently got two from my wishlist: 'Elden Ring' and 'Stranger of Paradise'. One of them was a disappointment for me, guess which. Stuff still on my wishlist are: - Ghostwire Tokyo - Salt and Sacrifice - Dad of Boi Ragnarok - Bayonetta 3 (What's the hold up Kamiya?) - Legend of Zelda: Breath...

    [V2] What are you currently playing?

    Finished up my first playthrough of 'Stranger of Paradise'. My feelings on the story are a bit mixed but overal my time with the game was quite positive. Tiamat and it's second phase can rot in Nalbina Dungeon though. I unironically had more fun with it than with 'Elden Ring'. I do wish the game...

    FFVII Remake - Sephiroth & Genesis

    I hope Genesis doesn't even get a joke reference. He's easily the absolute worst part of Crisis Core, and any scene he was in was nearly ruined by his smug face. He had way too big a role in a story that should have been about Zack, Cloud and Sephiroth and their history/connection. I also hated...

    FF7R: Aerith Revival (Discussion)

    Aerith's death is widely considered a genre defining moment in rpg history. It taught gamers how to cry and all those phrasings you know? To undo Aerith's tragic fate would not only completely ruin the emotional impact forever, but it would be disrespectfull to the scene's legacy. So absolutely...

    FFIX: What would you change?

    A few things come to mind: - Make the other three guardians of Terra into boss fights. (Before going to Terra) - Foreshadow Necron's role in the story, so he doesn't come out of nowhere. - Give Freya and Amaranth more screen time in the latter discs. They kinda fade into the background after...

    Sin's Souls (Spoiler)

    Yeah, as far as the game itself goes Sin's toxin seems to just be Yevon's way to explain PTSD, amnesia or propably even mental illnesses. I mean Spira doesn't seem like the kind of place that would have psychologists or even proper doctors. Alot of mental problems in the real world used to be...

    KHII Your thoughts on Kingdom Hearts 2

    Well the gamepaly to this day has not been succesfully replicated. It's still the most enjoyable action RPG battle system I've played to this day. I do agree that on below proud mode the game is way too easy, but remember that the series is targeted for younger kids, and at this point the...

    FFX-2 Lovers Reincarnated?

    I don't recall reincarnation to be a part of FFX mythos at any point though. There's nothing in the games that would imply this. Also as far as dream Zanarkand goes, I thought that it isn't so much a perfect simulation of the real deal but rather a romanticiation. Dream Zanarkand has been...

    All Dead, All Dead - Final Fantasy VII's Ending

    I personally think holy wiping humans out kinda goes against the whole theme of the game. I always felt the game pushed the whole humans can rise above themselves aspect. Also without humanity's influence the lifestream propably couldn't have pushed meteor back, as I've always interpreted that...

    Multiple Platforms Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

    I'm not entirely against first person, but it does prevent the protagonis from having an identity to me. Also based on the demo I played, the fps camera makes the game feel incredibly clunky and sluggish even by classic RE standards. I do like the lesser focus on action setpieces, return of...

    Games with lots of monsters?

    Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately none of the stores in my country seem to have it in stock, online or otherwise. It's a pretty rare title nowadays, but I'll keep an eye out.

    Games with lots of monsters?

    So in more detail, I'm looking for a game with a large variety of monsters that run on nightmare fuel. Eldritch, visceral or demonic, the works. I'd prefer them to be integral to the game's plot as well, as too many games that I've played recently have had human enemies as the fous and that has...

    2 0 1 6

    A letdown, due to conditions beyond my control. My therapy took a slight setback. It's nothing serious but my social anxiety has worsened from a year back. Plus I had this anxiety attack a few months back which has made me feel really negatively about myself. I hate being like this.

    What pissed you off today?

    Watching a video and reading about stuff that had to be left out/rewritten in FFXV. This game would have seriously needed another year or two of development time, but Square was apparently under some contractual oblication that forced them to push the game out before 2017. And I thought my...
