Only a few hours left to get in those last-minute Steam sale purchases.
I bought exactly one game, because the Steam sale has been mostly shit ever since they got rid of daily deals.
That one game is event, which ran quite terrible and the text interpreter was quite disappointing, so I gave it back.
However, I ended up buying Virtue's last reward on the 3DS eShop, which also had a sale, but that sale was even worse. SMB 3 for 3,50€ was ok, though.

After I got my phone back in early December, I finally downloaded the Love Live! School Idol Festival game to give it a try, especially since, hanging around idol circles, I've heard so much of it. It's not all that bad, but it really takes freemium to a new level. In the beginning, I had a massive amount of LP that I could play lots of live shows and win gold/points because of all the story events and such, but now that things are drying up, it's kind of a pain.
My sense of rhythm is getting trained more and more, though, so I like that.
But yeah, really, would I say I'd recommend it to anyone who isn't an idol fan, or... more importantly, a fan of the anime? Mmmm..... ...not really, I think.
I also toyed around with some other mobile games, I REALLY love Jetpack Joyride, it's extremely fun, I also got Neko Atsume, which is pretty cute (finally got my yard upgrade not too long ago!!), and then I tried out some Werewolf Tycoon, which is just simple fun as well. The casual games are nice to blow time, but I might look into more non-casual games in the future.

Now that I have my new phone I'm ready to finally play Kingdom Hearts Unchained x. I hope it's good.

I really enjoyed it and would recommend it for people who like rhythm games and pop music. Unlike H!P game which I wouldn't recommend because of its not so great drawings and which has the same or less functions (events and so on) than LL, done in a worse way.
I also really liked Jetpack (I came to a high level as well before loosing all my datas).

There's a lot to the battle system though, and I can't get the hang of blocking to save my life.

I spent some time last year playing a Train Drive ATS, train simulator. iPad only and the free version doesn't explain anything to you, but after two weeks or so of puzzlement, it started to make sense.
It basically mimics the Tobu and Keio railway lines, from the train cabin and the engine to the PA system (they hired the actual lady who does the voice announcements on the Tokyo Metro), and after months of playing I have a much better appreciation for the stuff that streetcar operators have to go through. The precision needed for stopping the train, however, is just insane (down to 0.005 meters or less) to feel like you've made any progress.
Bad part is that true to the real world, the game copies the ATS (automatic train stop system) that it's impossible to derail a train.

I'm not really sure what having friends does in that game but I guess I'll find out?
I also got Mystic Messenger and omg I'm already addicted.
Posted 04 January 2017 - 05:56 AM
I've heard good things about MYstic Messenger, I'll have to try it out. XD
Adding friends is basically just totally for goal purposes and nothing less. Like one of your first goals is "Add 5 friends!" and even shy me took forever but now I just send random requests to "guests" who helped me during a live show, which they'll explain a bit of. After you reach a number of friends, you get your reward for achieving the goal, etc.
My ID is 746968855! By which I mean I already sent you a stalker request. :v

The Zelda trailer also looked good as well.

The best Zelda trailer since the TP reveal.

I was looking for a short solo game to let our a bit my exams' stress and found out about Raft, a survival game in early production. You're alone on your raft surrounded by a few sharks and you have to survive and build a wider and nicer raft with debris from the water. And it's actually not bad at all : you don't have that much to do but enough which made me spend 1 hour yesterday and today building my raft (I'm building a house with floors on my raft haha). So it did entertain me while not getting too time consuming.

Square Enix is supposed to have some kind of announcement at the end of the month and I keep reading about some rumoured I-IX collection, but I somehow doubt that's going to happen, not with the VII remake.

I think the NES Classic caught them flatfooted. It seems like something they tossed together because Wii U was dead and they didn't have much else going on for the holiday season, and probably based expectations on what similar Atari and Sega machines have done int he past. At this point it seems likely it's the top-selling device of its kind, but it's hard to find any kind of solid numbers. Switch we've already known for some time their estimate is 2 million worldwide through March, which now does seem a little shorter since we know it's launching early March rather than mid or late. It's less than 3DS had launching at a similar time, but then 3DS launch ended up with too much supply really.
I just hope they don't do that crap they did with the NES classic, the amibo and pretty much everything else they release nowadays by limiting the supply. I won't be able to get it right away which has me concerned.
I actually managed to get three preordered the night of the presentation (for reasons that are mostly boring)--will probably cancel two, but I haven't yet in case I can redirect them to others who had more trouble. Nearly did for a brother and a friend, but they managed to get their own.

I don't think so, I think that was completely calculated.
It's the same bullshit toy manufacturers (used to) do.

I didn't think that thing was going to be so big, either. I figured the people who cared a lot about old NES games would already be doing so in more convenient ways either legitimately or illegitimately, without the hassles of using another HDMI input for a device with a fixed selection of games.

That's exactly it.
They kept being in the news and everybody was talking about it. It just drove up demand.

If you haven't played RCR, it was a beat-'em-up with a ~chibi style and RPG elements like increasing stats by purchasing items. That really set it apart from the Double Dragons or Final Fights of the world, and for a long time there wasn't much like it, though in the last decade or two increasing stats seems to have wormed its way into a ton of genres.
ANYWAY, this sequel largely tries to be an improvement on a similar formula. It's still got a generally NES graphics style, though with it being widescreen, having significantly smoother animation, and many more things going on on screen at once it won't be confused for a legit NES game. You still increase stats by buying items but it caps them based on character level, so unlike the first game you can't easily grind one area in the beginning, buy 50 of the same food item, and have a totally maxed out Punch stat or whatever. This game also allows for up to 4 players versus 2 in the original, though I haven't had a chance to give multiplayer a try yet.

I've put in about 8 hours into the game and I've definitely barely scratched the surface of it. It's definitely more difficult than most that I've played but because it's nonpinearity it's not discouraging because you can go do something else.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is currently preloading. I have been staying spoiler free aside from the hilariously derping animation compilation videos that have been going around LOL.
Also started playing WOW. God help us all.
Posted 20 March 2017 - 04:20 PM
After having nothing new to play I'm now on a huge PS4 streak going from Nioh to Horizon: Zero Dawn to Nier: Automata, and then Mass Effect tomorrow with Persona 5 a couple more weeks away, in addition to my daily hour or two of Overwatch on PC.

Started up I Am Setsuna. but so far it is a disappointment. The appeal was that it was a retro-style RPG from S-E, with systems very close to Chrono Trigger's. However, so far it's like if Chrono Trigger was much more linear and had more boring characters, story, settings, and music.
