    Was thinking about getting Dragon's Dogma 2, but still not a fan of the pawn sharing bit. wish you could just create a full crew of your own. :V

    Been mostly playing long runs at this point too. Competed Alfred Hitchcock - Vertigo, which is says it is inspired by the Hitchcock's movie Vertigo, and I guess his other works? I probably need to watch the movie to see the connection but idk. Wouldn't say it was bad, but kind of meandered along. One of the story beats requires a comical level of incompetence or just... negligence to work too. lol

    Poking my way through Eiyuden Chronicles, and a few other games as well.

    edit: I did start Dragon's Dogma 2. I am a master of kicks. I guess bows too.

    I played through and earned 1000/1000 in Jedi Survivor over the past week and a half or so. It isn't as willfully player-hostile as its predecessor, and only a few of the fights felt overly difficult on the medium difficulty (mainly bonus bosses in the combat challenges). This time around, there's only one scavenger hunt required to 100% for achievement completion, which has two particularly egregious item placements. There's an upgrade to show you on the map where these things all are, but even then there's some ridiculousness involved. A pair of the move-specific achievements required a minor bit of grinding to go from 0% to completion within ten minutes of finishing the story, once I figured out what it was actually asking me to do. Everything else unlocked naturally during the course of my playthrough, either by story progression or me just playing as felt natural.

    The game doesn't require any replaying, though a New Game+ option is available, and I don't really feel the need to revisit it again.

    Currently I'm playing a couple different games, including Assassin's Creed Valhalla which I had an itch to go back to. Right now I'm just working on getting all of the map collectables, which is fun in its own way.

    303303 would be a palindrome! I would definitely take a pic of that lol. I am getting near the end of DD2 and trying to think of what to play next. Heard good things about Dave the diver and it was just added to ps+ so i might do that.

    Animal Well is done. Fun game although I get really irritated when games like this and Tunic decide to be a bit on the obtuse side just because they can. But that is a minor complaint as the game was really fun as a whole.
    The worst part was finding all of the secret eggs, but I was able to find a nice majority of them myself and used a guide to find the stragglers.

    Please Sony, please continue to release some of these really neat new indie games day 1 on PS+. I've been enjoying that with Dave the Diver and Animal Well.

    And I got the Plat for Bastion. I love this game. It was on the first games I got all of the achievements for when it was originally released for the 360 back in the day. I've been wanting to replay it for a long time now and get the platinum since there were a few trophies and challenges not present in the original release. The four challenge gauntlets were the worst part since you have to beat them all with all ten idols active. That took some planning on what weapons to bring with you. All in all, still love this game.

    I'm slowly working through finishing the brutal challenges for FF7 Rebirth. Also working on Born of Bread, Legend of Dragoon, and just started Dragon Quest XI. Not sure why I'm working on so many RPGs. I'm a crazy person this year apparently.

    I got that plat earlier this year as well and it was my first time with the game. It was very good, which is not surprising since the developers have basically never missed. I was not prepared for the story to get as deep and somber as it ended up being. What did you use for the 10 idol gauntlets? I used the mortar almost exclusively. Thing was just way too powerful.

    Mortar as well. I used the carbine as my second weapon.

    Even then, I ended up having to redo the stranger's dream half a dozen times.

    Little Kitty Big City is pretty cute and fun. You play as a cat exploring a small city block, finding collectables, interacting with other animals, stealing stuff from humans, and knocking things over.

    It overstays its welcome just a bit with a couple grindy "do [thing] X times" achievements, but nothing too egregious.

    Ha! I was just considering writing up something about this one. The two I have left to grind are frickin' grindy.
    "Get photographed 20 times": It happens seemingly completely at random. If someone has a phone and likes you and stops to pay attention to you, they might take a picture. In my experience they run up and trip over me themselves even if I'm not moving, and then they drop their phone and get angry.

    "Recycle 100 objects": I didn't even know this was something you could do until after I'd beaten the game and looked up my achievement list. Nothing mentions it, nor is it required and it's listed as ???? in the challenges menu until you start doing it. On the one hand, it means that discovering this feature feels organic and fun, but recovering a hundred pieces of literal garbage in exchange for currency I no longer have any use for is painful. I've taken to mugging humans for their soda cans because the machines were all out.
    Which is a shame, because the everything else about this game was extremely entertaining and I still heartily recommend it.

    You can headbutt the vending machines near the produce store with that cat that asked you to knock over jars. One of those drops 8 cans at a time and is near a recycle bin, so you can just do that, save, quit, repeat.

    For the photos, I had decent luck running ahead of where they're walking, posing, then meowing. Half the time they'd take my picture. If they ignored me or wagged their finger at me I would chase after them and knock them over. That part doesn't help with the achievement but makes me feel better.

    Finished of Dragon's Dogma 2 earlier with 98 hours in it. Got every side quest and pretty much finished everything there is to do in the game. I put it on par with the original release of the first game, but a bit of a step back from Bitterblack Isle. Still a great game though. I ended up spending most of the latter part of the game as a warfarer but pretty much just used the magic Archer move set. I was trying to get the final augment but finished the game before i got enough discipline. I would have liked the warfarer to let you assign 3 different moves to each weapon you have equipped, instead of just getting to choose 4 (really 3) from all of them. I also wish the maister abilities were better for some of the classes. The mage and mystic spearhand maister abilities were underwhelming. And of course, pretty much everything about the trickster was disappointing.

    Overall definitely enjoyed it, flaws and all. Moving on to some shorter games next before I go for the ps5 edition of Elden Ring in preparation for the dlc.

    lol, 45+ hours in and I only just advanced the main story through Brant's stuff. Snuck into the second region through the western path... was pretty fun. Main for me is archer, but I've spent time as thief and mystic spearhand... when I did the trek along that western path I had just started the mystic spearhand vocation so I didn't have the shield ability or anything so it made the class feel terrible. I need to get the maister ability for it. Just hitting 45 and levelling sorcerer now... I plan on maxing all the vocations out. kind of wish the difficulty could be increased, will miss these times. Dual golem and cyclops fights are pretty amusing, hoping there's more of that. Killed a few drakes too. Always amusing when pawn actually uses augural flare on a weakspot and then we just flick that and it just melts a thing.

    I just love exploring caves and whatnot... pretty much playing it the same way I do with Starfield atm. I also haven't run into too many pawn monstrousities or caek. Would still very much love to make a bespoke group of pawns, but so far it's worked out. doesn't seem like there's a lot of items/gear, but I think the the bulk of the power of the characters comes from level.

    Good luck with the vocations. I changed every time i maxed one and i still had 3 of them left when i finished the game. I suppose i could have done some grinding on purpose but i never really felt like it was necessary.

    I've maxed out archer, thief, and spearhandler at this point, I got Fighter to 6 before I switched it out so I need to finish that one, will probably do it after sorcerer. It feels like the trick to level them is just running the road and taking out the packs of enemies as they're better for DCP per fight than fighting mini-boss types. Not really intentionally grinding XP but more just grazing as I explore the land. I pick a spot and then start hoofing it out.

    edit: also those random escort/encounter quests are the weirdest things. like running across a poor old lady being beset by a pack of wolves because what did you think would happen to you trying to walking alone in the forest is just... huh? not to mention all the goblins... I mean, at least the guards needing a hand getting to another outpost make sense. even better is they despawn when you finish the quests because they'd all surely die otherwise. lol

    I finally sat down and grabbed the last few eggs, then true ending and the damn SNEAK UP ON A SQUIRREL!!! trophy in Animal Well.

    Working on finishing System Shock Remake and getting the platinum in Jagged Alliance 3, which is going to be pretty fun imo. System Shock Remake has a lot of really badly explained and buggy trophies, so not sure what luck of the coin flip I'll get there.

    Then it's all Age of Wonders 4 for a while. Oh yeah.

    As someone who is aware of system Shock mostly through cultural osmosis, how does it hold up as a modern game? I am interested in the remake but i don't know if it is actually good without the weight of nostalgia.

    Complicated question TBH. For one, it's an unapologetically old school designed game such as needing to grab a certain guys head because it's needed later, but the game won't tell you. So you can end up searching a deck you've been over, with no map or other guidance markers for this random object. Worse, you could have carried him around for curiosity, dumped it somewhere at random and then realized you needed it to progress with NFI what you did with it. It's unapologetic like this, throwing roadblocks to progress and if you missed an audio log, or couldn't catch onto something, you can find yourself progress blocked without looking it up. It also has large complex levels, that loop around on one another and spawn a good deal of aggressive enemies constantly until you get the security down on a floor and the shooting mechanics are not fluid like your average boomer shooter - System Shock was much more at the start of what I would describe as Immersive Sim games than Boomer Shooters. So it's not a retro fast paced FPS and isn't trying to be either.

    At the same time, a lot of the things that make it awkward and frustrating are also what's great about it. The puzzles IMO are really fun, at least once you get what's going on with some of them (like the electric plugs). The large sprawling levels have a real sense of place and atmosphere that a lot of FPS games today lack by being a single linear corridor. There are a bunch of different enemy types that reward different strategies, most of the weapons are really fun with only a couple of shit ones that you move on from forever and the story is pretty good - Shodan is an iconic video game AI villain for a good reason. It's also nice to play a game that isn't smashing you over the head every 5 seconds with what you're supposed to do and respects you to figure things out for yourself via experimentation. The layout of the game is very open, where you quickly gain access to a large number of the games decks and can explore them in any order. Nothing really stops you from exploring the station how you want other than some upgrades that have specific uses, such as protecting you from extremely hazardous radiation and so forth. Likewise the difficulty settings are pretty great as well. On the lowest difficulty not only does it make enemies easier but it removes some of the more obscure elements, like needing to find a random guys head, to progress.

    Overall I think highly of the game, but it's not something I would recommend for everyone unless you're the type who happens to record notes and things outside of the game, because you will need to as it will tell you something once, then never mention it again. I bring up the "head" as it's a really good example of the game allowing the player to make their life worse trivially. It's not going to pop up a quest marker or tell you that "Hey you totally didn't find that puzzle". Also the highest difficulty, for achievement hunting, needs at least a first playthrough to be viable. You have 10 hours to finish the game and if you don't, you dead! Note that while this *sounds* bad it actually isn't in practice as you can easily finish the game in 5, it's not linear at all and if you know what to do you don't even need to bother with the majority of the station. Personally I thought System Shock 2 was a far better game than the original and truly deserving of the iconic status System Shock has, so I'm really hoping they get to remake 2 if this is the quality of the first game.

    In other achievement news just now I finally scratched that itch and got the last three trophies in Remnant from the Ashes. Surprising me, I got immensely lucky RNG on the armour drops and banged out the fashion trophy very fast. Then one simple boss battle against scorch gave me the offline world boss without taking damage and some quick selling was 200,000 scrap over and done with. I stopped playing a year ago because I couldn't be bothered with these trophies, they took me less than 2 hours to do. Funny how things work.

    That all sounds awesome. Definitely going to pick it up now. Thanks for that explanation!

    Annoying, but doable. There is a difficulty setting to make it just kill you on being ICEd as well. It's a reasonably fun change of pace now and again.

    Ok, so it's been a bit slower going as I've been playing Dragon Quest 11. I've taken a break from grinding out brutal challenges on FFVII Rebirth. Hopefully I'll be getting to that soon.

    But my son got a Meta Quest 3, so he is going to sell his PSVR to a friend of his, so I'm taking a quick break from DQ11 so that I can work through a few PSVR games I've had on the backlog for a while. I'm starting with Moss Book 1 & 2. So last night I got the platinum for Moss.

    The game is absolutely adorable and wasn't too much of a chore. The collectibles were all pretty breezy to get and I only had to use chapter select to look for a few that I missed. The hardest trophy was to do a run of the game without any deaths. The only spot I was really concerned about with that was the final area where I had to avoid the snake boss, who could kill me in one shot. But I was able to get through it without too much trouble.

    Great game. I then started Moss 2 and got through the first couple areas. Seems like it'll be another fun and breezy platinum.

    Ok, so it's been a bit slower going as I've been playing Dragon Quest 11. I've taken a break from grinding out brutal challenges on FFVII Rebirth. Hopefully I'll be getting to that soon.

    I really wanted to play Moss 1 and 2 but VR does horrible things to my frail form. I finished up Roki, a point and click (basically) Nordic game about a young girl and her brother. It is very poignant without being ham fisted and featured a bunch of neat creatures and mythology i had never the encountered before. Now i am going to get the PS5 version of Elden Ring platinum to go with my PS4 version and also play the dlc.

    VR Tends to give me a headache after a bit, so I try to play little bits at a time.

    But he is selling it next week. So I have a week to knock the VR games off my backlog. :tongue:

    And Moss: Book II is done. Such a great game and a cute little Mouse. This game did have one 'no death' run trophy like the first game, but it was easier as it was only for a specific section of the game and not the whole game like the first one. So happy I finally knocked these two games off of my backlog. They were such joyful experiences.

    I got all achievements from Marvels Midnight Suns and Dead Island 2 and their DLC.

    It saddens me a little that Midnight Suns did as bad as it apparently did because its a cool game, it did something new and original.

    Dead Island 2 actually did the almost impossible, it was pretty much enjoyable from beginning to the end, even more than Dead Island 1 where I only liked the Resort area in the start, got D2 from Gamepass and bought the expansion pass on sale, a much better game than D1, which I also tried going back to briefly… Dear lord, the head bobbing when you walk is torture!

    I liked the concept of Midnight Suns but had no interest in playing it partially due to the fact that I hate the villains used and most of the heroes were not my thing, but second because strategy games like this and XCom tend to lose my interest very quickly. I think the Mario + Rabbids games were the first ones to hold my interest to the end. But then, I'm not really a big Marvel guy.

    If they made a similar game based around the DC universe, they might have me.

    You should therefore try to play Capes, which is very similar to what people envisaged for Midnight Suns.

    I read some reviews that said Capes did not deliver, have you played it yet?

    While I didn't really want to, will be finishing up Dragon's Dogma 2.
    Originally planned on continuing the unmoored world until I completed all the badges. From the world perspective, everybody was stuffed into that one area, and their world is all ruined. So... I kind of became the villain of sorts? I vaguely recall playing another game where this scenario was the whole point of it. lol....

    Had my pawn not been inflicted with unmoored dragonplague, probably would have just kept grinding out the monster badges. Warg badge was the main goal and I got that. I thought lesser dragons would respawn, but that wasn't the case so I was due to restart anyway. But yeah, poor thing was holding her head and then started randomly spitting at times... so my hand was forced. The other pawns also caught it from being in the unmoored world too. I'm guessing NG+ will cure them. Or some other player's towns got nuked. :V

    Might play through more but it needs like... a harder difficulty. or maybe some DLC, idk.

    I was surprised at how few trophies were tied to that part of the game. Felt like the equivalent in the first game required a lot more work to get all the trophies but maybe i am mistaken.

    Yeah, there's a lot of commentary out there about how was more stuff in the first game, not even counting the DLC stuff, and to some extent it DD2 did feel somewhat sparse. Like, once you did the main tasks, and unique spawns... other than grinding badges there's naught to do.

    Even as a person who explores the geography and caves... kind of was hoping for more. At one point my Pawn was talking about how she'd been in this cave before, but I had never visited it. Some of the caves did reuse parts of them, so.. .yeah. There were those dead-end doorways, could possibly be DLC stubs... who knows.

    One thing that would go a long way would have been if NG+ bumped the levels of everything by y'know... a lot. I still had fun with it, but definitely wish there was more.

    Now I have to actually progress and clear the plot in Starfield... heh.

    edit: didn't notice it but they pushed an update near the end of June. I was wondering why I was able to store more than 99 of things in storage.

    Ok, so the VR games I've had on my backlog forever are completed I finished Paper Beast last night. The platinum wasn't too bad but had a couple of trophies that were really annoying. Didn't care much for the game when all was said and done, but at least it's off the backlog.

    I also finally started playing Concrete Genie as I've been wanting to play it for a long time. Since I was already messing with the VR, I went ahead and grabbed the three VR DLC trophies that are in that game as playing through the VR mode took like a half hour and was really easy.

    Concrete Genie was excellent. Been awhile but i remember it being a mostly enjoyable plat, maybe one or two slightly annoying things.

    Yea, 2024 has been a fun year so far. Since it's a bit of a slow year for new games I want to play, I've been using this year to finally work through a bunch of my backlog and finally finish games I've wanted to play for a long time.

    Games like the Mass Effect Trilogy and Concrete Genie I've had on my backlog for years. So far Concrete Genie is very good and super charming.
