Watcha Playing, Phoenix?

Recommended Posts

This Rocket Knight on 360. This game is so mediocre. wtf?
It's slow as Hell and ugly as sin with garbage music and sound. Holy crap. Like, it's playable? It's just...weak and low energy for a series meant to be bombastic and mind numbing. Just would rather pop in the original or Sparkster. Or Hell, even Pop'n Twinbee Rainbow Bell Adventures. :c

I've been playing a lot of Stellaris since I got it a few days ago.

It's a lot of fun, with a lot more personality and story than something like Distant Worlds (though, like almost all 4X games besides Distant Worlds, the economy is still Space Communism...), though the excitement of exploring and story events seems to be mostly concentrated in the game's beginning, leaving the middle a little barren of interest other than tech advancements and occasional wars.

However, it has certainly improved since launch in terms of the complaints I had previously heard, and they seem pretty dedicated to releasing significant free content updates in the future, so hopefully the base game will improve significantly with these and the inevitable flood of Paradox DLC in the future.

I've really gotten into Factorio with my brother. It's such a fun game and with me and him being engineers it's kind of funny how we argue over logistics at times and what we can do to increase efficiency whilst still surviving.

Picked up this puppy.

I used to play the first one on my aunt's computer as a young'n. Owned the second one (still have it). Currently playing the first one, it's amusingly outdated.

Phantasy Star Online 2.

(Yikes, I forgot how cringey that level's music is. Forgot I have my ingame stuff turned off. lol)

I just finished Star Wars Dark Forces a couple weeks ago. Being that it's a mid 90's game the graphics were Doom/Wolfenstein level, but playable.

Now I'm on Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight. Where the graphics are about the level of Unreal Tournament or Quake, and look way better than DF1. I can actually run it in full resolution which is impressive.

However, this game came out when game studios thought it was a good idea to use live action and in-house staff actors for the cut scenes, which means the cut scenes are somewhat badly acted and campy as hell.

I can't put Ghost in the Shell Online down. This game's bog standard and very simple, but it's really well made and some a small bit of uniqueness that makes it interesting. Super generous to new players too.

I've been playing angry birds 2 for some time now and may now give up as the loophole I used to avoid the pay to win BS got closed.

It's so much like a glorified slot machine (psychologists call this a Skinner box) I can tell when it won't let me win, when it wants me to win, and when it will only let me win if I watch a ad.

Every time I used the loophole I loved to imagine someone at rovio  banging their head on a desk and swearing in Finnish.

It's been 5 years since I last picked it up, but I remembered I never beat this random RPG from Sega on the DS called Sands of Destruction. 
It seems like the game was super slept on, but even with random battles and turn based combat, I remembered enjoying it a lot. Still do really. And I like the character designs quite a bit. Just nice well rounded looks. 

I like this dude's hat.

Still Terraria. I hollowed out a cloud to make a sky lake since they don't spawn on console and I'm digging a hole all the way to Hell to contain the Crimson for when I unlock hard mode.

Watch dogs 2 suprisingly runs well on my pc. I like this game also grapichs are really good. Only onr bad thing would be driving mechanics they are not very realistic. Story is good.

Tyranny (Gotta have an outlet for it since I won't be a mod now :Y)

 

It's a fantastic isometric RPG with a rich world and interesting choices where you play a sort of adjudicator in the "Evil Overlord's" empire in a newly conquered territory (that you help conquer through character creation) tasked with crushing an upstart rebellion. It has a brutal tone without becoming comically-evil.

This chick in this Fire Emblem game I'm playing is fucking ruthless. All her daughter wanted was for her mom to finally hug and love her and hold her hand from time to time. Instead her mom ordered this guy to assassinate her. Said she's human refuse and trash worth more dead than alive.

That's not very nice, mom. Q~Q

Speaking of ruthless video game villains, the bad guy from LISA does not fuck around. So far he held one of my team mates hostage and spared his life in exchange for one of my arms, and force fed me drugs in front of my teenage daughter until I passed out.

Well I am currently bouncing around 3 games.

Final Fantasy XIV - I finished all the raid content, my group is now just farming it for the weekly

Final Fantasy XV - Despite its flaws, I still enjoy playing it to wind down

Horizon Zero Dawn - Currently I'm spending the most time in this game. It's beautiful. I'm extremely impressed with the Decima Engine, because the game doesn't stutter and is graphically impressive. I felt invested in the main character and enjoy trying different ways to take down machines.

 

Included are screenshots of my current games because I really enjoy that feature on PS4. I love how insane the color palette became in a fight in FFXV, looking like No Man's Sky. Horizon's Opening Screen reminds me of Journey (the mountain).

Not quite a trophy you can mount on the wall, though.

I made a character in Terraria to use ranged weapons and solo-killed the weed queen Plantera in the underground jungle. Tomorrow I take on Duke Fishron over at the ocean. I'm on a mission to collect all the boss trophies... After I get Duke Fishbreath I'll just need Pumpking and Mourning Wood from the Pumpkin Moon event and Santa-NK1, Everscream, and Ice Queen from the Frost Moon

Been collecting some of the rarest items in Terraria. I am now the proud owner of a legitimately-obtained slime staff (1/10k drop rate) and the Axe from Plantera (0.05% drop rate)

One thing i have noticed in skyrim is the fight for religious freedom seems kinda wrong. It isn't the empire the stormcloaks should be fighting,but it should actually be the Thalmor they should be fighting.

Lesson learned in Skyrim: Apparently "Fus" (first part of the famous "Fus Ro Dah!") also means "your mother was a gecko!" if shouted at a dragon that just will not land so you can fight it.

It got the dragon's attention, though

I got Jade Empire cause I remember loving it as a kiddo.

It amazes me how badly it runs. My computer can do The Witcher 3 at max graphic settings, but this 12 year old game stutters and freezes constantly.

Thanks Bioware.

Just discovered that there's a SM64 rom hacking community. I don't know why I never looked into this considering the fact that I've played SMW rom hacks and have even messed around with some SM64 mapping software as a kid, but whatevs. New hobby.

You should look into Mario 64 Star Road and while it's not really that fun, Second Impact is really impressive.

Oh yeah, Star Road is the one I just started playing yesterday! Cool stuff. I'll take a look at Second Impact as well.

Do you know of any hacks that feature difficult/precise platforming rather than the more traditional style of level design? I'm not amazing at the game, but I do like that sort of thing.

Star Road gets to that point. I am pretty sure there is a Kaizo Mario 64 hack (not named Kaizo, but is a Kaizo).
