Got Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild and a Nintendo Switch this past weekend. Very impressed with the console, but this game is something else. I don't think I've ever been as captivated and wow'd by a game like this since I was a kid.

Need to pick that up but I'm gonna play it out on the Wii U. I keep seeing people complain about the issues with the Nintendo switch

Let us know how it progresses over time

I've been really enjoying Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. It's an isometric RTS / stealth thing that's very similar to Commandos if anyone played that back in the 90s. You control a small team (scout, heavy, sniper etc) and sneak around picking off guards with combinations of everyone's skills.

I also picked that up in the last week or so - but have only played through the first level so far - I really need stick to one game, or at least plan how I'm going to tackle the backlog I have

(got Zelda on Wii-U this week, and the new ghost recon as well - fuck knows how I'm going to find the time)

Plodding my way through Uncharted 4. It's still an amazingly well made game but I got to agree with whoever said the magic is kinda gone.

Started up Red Dead Redemption but haven't gotten anywhere and the initial "Yes Ma'am" conversations are not hooking me in.

Still just want to play Bloodborne most of the time so I went out and bought Demon's Souls. I knew it would be similar but I was surprised to find it almost exactly the same, play-wise.

Uncharted 4...it doesn't have me as hyped as the other games in the series. I beat the 3rd one within a day but I play for 10-20 minutes, a couple times a day.

Bought the uncharted Collection and finished uncharted 3 on crushing in 2days...the game seriously lost me when he ends up back on shore after that shipwreck

I remember reading about how the developers had come up with set pieces before the actual game was outlined and then shoehorned them in. It shows. There are some great bits but the flow is just off.

They peaked with #2.

took the old NES out of the garage at my parents' place and have been playing adventure island and super mario 3. also punch out, which I just bought used. unfortunately it's not the tyson edition but it's almost exactly the same game except for tyson's appearance.

Bought and started Vice City Stories on Vita. Pretty nice as its the only way you can play around in Vice City on a portable.

thank you!!

Three was waaaay to focused on feeling a like a movie and not nearly enough went into the actual game play.  the level design was more about looking cool than how it actually played.  four felt like a victory lap and a pandering to cos-players and people who like to talk about games more than they play.

two was incredible. the climbing puzzles were a blast.  the plot revealed itself through actual game play


this level was wicked rad

For real #2 was damn good...especially when you get to the leader/boss (fucking epic how angry dude gets), the puzzles were legit, and i loved the Marco Polo reference.

I will say i loved the Acid trip chapters on #3 tho, besides that the game was trash

Saw #4 at GameStop for $35 and put that shit right back on the shelf ...Probably wont play it till its down to around $15-20

Let us know how it progresses over time

A week and a half in and I've had no issues with my Switch. The two biggest issues issues I've been seeing are syncing issues and the dock scratching the screen, which I believe to be just carelessness. I'm fortunate to have gotten a good launch day console, but Nintendo seems to be aware of these issues and are working on them, which is pretty common for launch systems. But I've put in many hours both docked to my TV and taking it on the go, and both perform very well.


As for Zelda, I don't wanna speak too much from hype alone, but all this time in and it very well may be my favorite open world game. To me it does everything right from the combat, to the incentive to explore, to organically introducing new gameplay mechanics, and of course having a beautiful world. I feel like it's pretty easy to be desensitized to by powerful graphics these days, but the art style is really something else. I often catch myself just wandering and admiring the view without really doing much in the game, which is probably why two weeks in I'm maybe halfway through the main quest. Certainly as a big Zelda buff I'm a bit partial, but this really is a game changer.

Project cars. I dont even play video games anymore but I played that for like a hour until I got a solid lap down and will play again. The physics feel like your in the car moving through the map rather than the car being still and the map moving. Very on edge, no forza type fucking around or your gonna spin out and have to start over again. Having not played any other racing sims, shit feels pretty real.

Uncharted 2 had so many great moments, I wasn't sure which was going to be in the video. First arriving in Nepal, the rooftops, the train, the village, exploring with Tenzin, getting through those chain gunners, sniping the towers, last boss, etc.

The funny thing was it got lower or same ratings as its predecessor because it was too similar but from this vantage point it's clearly the best.

I didn't have a Snes growing up, so I've been using an emulator, trying to play all the classics.

I've gotten through most of the big platformer-type games, so now I'm moving on to all the RPGs I've always heard people rave about.

Figured "Super Mario RPG" would be an easy starting point. Gonna move on to "Chrono Trigger" after, then work my way through some "Final Fantasy" sequels.

Meikyuu Jiin Dababa - A Konami Famicom Disk System game. Good action puzzle!


Mighty Bomb Jack. Not a fantastic game but getting this for Christmas as a kid makes it more nostalgic.


Akumajo Densetsu. The music on the Famicom version is so good. Hadn't teamed up with Alucard before and so far he seems pretty useless.


Kabuki Quantum Fighter. A decent Sunsoft/Tecmoesque platformer.

I hadn't known that, about the music on the Japanese version of Castlevania III.

From wiki:

"The game's audio programmer, Hidenori Maezawa, assisted in the chip's creation. This chip added two extra pulse-wave channels and a saw-wave channel to the system's initial set of five sound channels. The majority of the music combines the channels to imitate the sound of a synthesized string section."

Pretty interesting.


Castlevania was one of my favorite series on the NES, but I felt like the second one tried to do too much, and lost some of what made the first one so great.
The third was a pretty good mixture of the first two, though.

Back on Battlefield 1 on PS4 since there's nothing really out right now. If anyone wants to jump in a fire team with me and some buddies, hit me up.

Waiting on the Horizon: Zero Dawn DLC.

I agree but on PS4 those servers are either dead or have rules implemented by a 12 year old with a power trip.

Simon's Quest is an ambiguous mess. Would never have been able to finish it without a walkthrough due to the nonlinear gameplay. Glad I didn't stumble upon the game back then. Sold the cartridge once I finished it a couple of years ago.

GTA V on the regular for Xbox 360, eastern fronts, add me if you wanna help me play some heists.

Side note, anyone have luck transferring their Xbox 360 character onto PS4? I've seen screen shots saying it was possible but I don't want to chuck $40 out the door if it won't work.

Switched over to PS4 for GTA V. Unfortunately they got rid of the transfer character services back in March so back to square one.

i got gta v for ps4 on my birthday but that game is boring as all hell on my own. i wish i could add you guys but i'm european so that would probably result in me playing gta at 4 in the morning and that sucks

last video game i played was rocket league btw i can't get enough of that game for some reason
I want to express my attraction to Morgan Smith. He is such a cutie! I'd love to kiss him, hold hands with him, and snuggle in bed with him. I'm being completely sincere about this.
