Almost done with the new Strider. Very solid Metroidvania for the most part, but the decision not to let players move with the d-pad makes NO SENSE OH MY GOD.
Mike Suskie @SuskieApr 10, 2014
@Ben Kind of? I reviewed Metroid Prime Trilogy, which has Metroid Prime in it. Ocarina of Time and Knights of the Old Republic remain unreview by me, though.
Mike Suskie @SuskieApr 09, 2014
The Last of Us: Remastered for PS4. Looks like I'll finally get to play it!
Mike Suskie @SuskieApr 08, 2014
Just beat Dark Souls again, this time on PC. Only 20 hours logged, and that's with all bosses killed and all DLC completed. I'm getting better.
Mike Suskie @SuskieApr 06, 2014
@Ben No you don't.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 30, 2014
@zigfried How far are you?
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 30, 2014
Think I gotta call it quits on Cloudbuilt. I just don't have it in me to finish these last couple of levels.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 30, 2014
remind me again why PC is filed under miscellaneous
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 30, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer On the other hand...
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 29, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer Just finished that Stability level you were talking about earlier. You weren't kidding.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 29, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer IT'S SO GOOD OMG
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 29, 2014
@honestgamer Agreed. The community has been killing it this week.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 29, 2014
Vita is my current favorite system and PS4 is on its way to becoming the only relevant home console. Sony = current reigning king of the video games.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 23, 2014
@jerec Pretty much.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 18, 2014
@zippdementia And Dark Souls II actually doubles back to some of the mechanics and design decisions employed in Demon's, further demonstrating that all three games are cut from the same cloth.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 18, 2014
@zippdementia Demon's and Dark are so similar that people tend to bundle them into the same series, but Dark Souls II is the first official sequel that these games have inspired.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 18, 2014
@zippdementia Dark Souls was a spiritual successor to Demon's Souls; borderline identical mechanics and tone, but set in different worlds. Dark Souls II, however, is set in the same world as the first Dark Souls.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 16, 2014
@honestgamer Sure, if you don't mind it being kind of long (as it probably will be).
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 16, 2014
Dark Souls II finished. Mehhhhh. More refined than the first one but nowhere near as imaginative or memorable.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 16, 2014
32 hours logged in Dark Souls II. I remember when I used to hate this series.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 14, 2014
@Ben The new one looks more Story than Island :(
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 12, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer +1000
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 11, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer As far as actual Vita games are concerned, if you have PS+, be sure to regularly check for free games. Some of them are pretty awesome.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 11, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer Have you played Vagrant Story yet? Toss that one onto your list if you haven't.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 10, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer It's awesome. I really don't think you'll regret it.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 08, 2014
Breaking character and playing DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. It is OBSCENELY well-written, though the actual gamey bits feel forced and unnecessary. Would have worked better as a straight-up visual novel, honestly.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 07, 2014
@Ben @overdrive How about don't? How about that??
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 07, 2014
@Ben @overdrive Hey, whatever happened to your FFVIII playthrough, Ben?
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 02, 2014
@JoeTheDestroyer @pickhut Harmony was kind of messy, honestly, as was Portrait. And Order kinda did its own thing. But I'd say Circle, Dawn and Aria were all first-rate Castlevania titles.
Mike Suskie @SuskieMar 01, 2014
Replaying Symphony of the Night. Still love it, but I don't get why so many people regard games like Circle of the Moon and Aria/Dawn of Sorrow as so completely second-fiddle. They're just as good as this.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 28, 2014
@wolfqueen001 Haha, yeah, that's malware.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 26, 2014
Just for fun, I put together a grading system for the bosses in Dark Souls.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 24, 2014
@zippdementia @wolfqueen001 I resent that. I've never spoken ill of The Last of Us. I still really want to play it, in fact.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 23, 2014
I finished Dark Souls. I will attempt to write a new review soon to replace my old one, which represents an outdated and incomplete view.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 22, 2014
@EmP @wolfqueen001 @zippdementia Well, it is awful, so you're not far off :)
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 22, 2014
@zippdementia @honestgamer @zigfried @wolfqueen001 Surprised to hear that. Feels like I'm past the point of no return (i.e., if I get to Anor Londo, I'm beating this game no matter what).
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 22, 2014
@zippdementia @JoeTheDestroyer @holdthephone @honestgamer Sorry. I'll be clear and say "Metroidvania" next time.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 22, 2014
@honestgamer Yeah... I've heard quite a bit about that one already :(
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 22, 2014
@honestgamer You say "finest," but I suspect you mean something very different.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 22, 2014
@honestgamer I'M ONLY HALFWAY?! Are you serious?
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 21, 2014
Developing a strange relationship with Dark Souls. I hate many things about it, yet I'm still soldiering on. I've reached Anor Londo, which I understand is fairly deep in.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 21, 2014
@zippdementia @holdthephone @honestgamer You just described Castlevania.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 21, 2014
@zippdementia @holdthephone @honestgamer Original Zelda? You think? Reminds me way more of Castlevania.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 20, 2014
@holdthephone @honestgamer +1000
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 20, 2014
@honestgamer Never mind. Gave it another shot and this time was briefly fooled into thinking it's not a horrible game.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 20, 2014
...I think I may be experiencing a change of heart about Dark Souls.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 19, 2014
This feels like a long shot, but has anyone else on here been playing the Titanfall beta?
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 15, 2014
Okay, whoa. Titanfall is pretty phenomenal.
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 15, 2014
Bravely Default will need to be put on hold this weekend, as I've acquired a Titanfall beta key :)
Mike Suskie @SuskieFeb 15, 2014
@Ben Honestly man I'm just a sucker for FFV/Tactics-style job systems
