    Getting into the absolutely insane campaign mode of Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, pretty fun to bring laser and blaster rifles into the game. I need to get Battlefield 1 to go the full spectrum from the past to the future

      Final Fantasy XV (PS4)

      They actually did it.

      Unfortunately the battle system is... ugh. It's a decent microcosm of everything currently wrong in Japanese game design. There's very little player agency (Combos are performed by holding down one button and tilting the left stick...), actions are largely disjointed from your inputs (Huge flashy animations for minimal input), there's a very noticeable input delay for everything which is made significantly worse because there are a lot of inputs that require holding a button for a second (This should seriously never happen unless you're charging something or aiming something, but FFXV uses it for really mundane stuff and stuff that should be very timing sensitive), there's unskippable nonsense that takes control away from the player, and the feedback mechanism for whether your attacks are neutral/resisted/effective is hard to keep track of. I've seen people praising the combat, but I really don't follow their line of thought - and anyone saying it's like Kingdom Hearts has never played Kingdom Hearts, because seriously what the hell.
      I couldn't disagree more.

      Sure, the combat in its opening hours isn't amazing and I guess you can technically get through the game by just holding the attack/block/evade button (I honestly doubt it), but once you gain some key abilities via accession and choose when to attack, warp, block evade, etc. there's a flow to combat unlike anything I've ever playing in the JRPG before. Sure it's not Bayo or DMC deep, but it's honestly not that far from it.

      And you're right - it isn't like KH. The combat in that game was never close to being as good as it is in FFXV.

        I just started Tales of Eternia and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. On the Vita I'm playing Moe Chronicles.

          Nice one. I'm quite enjoying the battle system so far. I thought it a little weird at first but steadily getting the hang of it.
          I'd probably like some more control over what link attacks etc happen and when (unless I've just not been able to work that out yet LOL). I've noticed my guys starting to link together a bit more though in recent fights.
          I long for that of which i dream of...

            I'm starting to get the hang of it but I still find it a little chaotic when fighting many enemies and trying to lock on a specific target. The battle system is not really not my thing I gotta admit, its strange but hopefully I'll improve.

              It's boring.

              To get to another star system you need to have a hyper drive. Fine. Once you get the Drive you need to power it. A Warp Cell. To make a Cell you need Anti-matter, to make Anti-matter you need Electron Vapor, to make Electron Vapor you need Suspension Fluid. You can buy the Fluid from just about anywhere, but it's expensive, over 20,000 Units. So, you have to hop down planetside, find and upload new species, and/or mine minerals, and sell them. Your ship needs a device to launch from a planet's surface. That need's fuel too. Plutonium. Every time you take-off takes a lot of fuel and Plutonium is relatively rare. So, while you're hunting down minerals to sell, you need fuel too, but you have limited space. You have to juggle: Your life support (which needs power), space to get money to get to the next system, space so you can craft items that you need, and space for the fuel to take-off.

              The ships have a faster engine to get you from planet to planet, or what ever else is in orbit quickly and that needs fuel too. Iron. This stuff is super common and you literally run into it every where. The device you use more often uses rarer fuel faster than the one you use less often.
              All of this is to get you to explore more. I wouldn't mind exploring on occasion, but I don't care for being forced to. Several times I would come back to my ship, only to have it tell me that I need Plutonium.

              The damn ship can't fly straight neither.

                I have not played a Diablo game since 2 way way back in the day and on a whim I picked up that Ultimate Evil edition of 3 for the PS4. Pretty good game so far, pretty different from how it used to be and I'm missing my Necromancer.

                    I discovered this game on the PS3 via PS1 classics called Wild Arms. I don't usually like turn based RPG's and have only finished one in Parasite Eve. But I am enjoying this game. I like how you can choose which character to play and experience a different story/level in the process.

                      Dishonored 2 - I did not play the first one. Man, this stealth trophy is hard.

                        Just started Dragons Dogma Dark Arisen on PC. So far the story is really bad, but I'm liking the gameplay.

                          I started Disney Magical World 2 in a whim tonight (for the 3DS). It had been in my backlog for a good 8 months. I am liking it just as much as the first one. I've already put a few hours into it. Gonna put a bit more time into it before going to bed.

                              Besides going through Fire Emblem Warriors, I've been on a big retro kick lately... since I went and picked up a CRT TV that I always wanted back before I went HD. A 32" Sony Wega Trinitron. Got it for $10 off craigslist and it's in nearly perfect shape with the remote. I currently have it setup up as an additional TV in the living room, which my wife isn't too happy about, but we'll be buying our own house next year and I'll finally have my game room so...

                              I've been mostly replaying old Saturn games... Dragon Force, Panzer Dragoon series, Dark Savior and the plethora of 2D fighters I have for the system. These games looked so bad on my HD TV's. It's been great playing them on a CRT again. Riding on that enthusiasm, I've decided to have my SNES-101 modded for S-Video output.
