Re: What Are You Playing? (November 2021)

Forza Horizon 5 - I love it. I just hate how tight the checkpoints are in some cases, which is similar to FH3 and FH4. Having recently played through FH1, it had some slightly more forgiving checkpoints, and I miss it.

I am Fish - Ridiculous game. Better than I am Bread, though.

River City Girls - stuck on a ridiculously hard boss, and probably won't finish this before it leaves game pass. Ah well. I do love its style.

Nioh Remastered - playing in 120fps on my PS5. Forgot just how hard the game can be at times, but I'll hopefully get further along than I did before.

Which boss? I bought RCG on the Switch from Limited Run a while back, and my wife and I got to Hibari and pretty much called it quits. Um, with the game, not each other. I don't remember if we actually fought Hibari or just thought "eh, I don't want to deal with this right now", but two years later, we still haven't! It's a drag because we both like beat-'em-ups and had a blast playing through Scott Pilgrim, Battletoads, and Streets of Rage 4, but we couldn't really get too much into this one. I had high hopes since River City Ransom was such a favorite on the NES.

Re: What Are You Playing? (November 2021)

^ yep, Hibari is the one. Not sure what it is about her, but I tried maybe 15 times before giving up. I also don't like how you lose so many coins every time you die. I might go back and beat her on easy mode, but that fight kind of soured me on the game.
I'm sure someone here will chime in and say you just have to learn her moves and 'git good' or whatever.

Re: What Are You Playing? (November 2021)

Well, despite better judgment, I dove back into River City Girls and managed to eek out a win against Hibari. The next couple boss fights were totally fine, and I started having a good time with the game again.
Then I got to Noize.
Fuck that. I'm done. What a dumb fight that is, having to dodge a barrage of Rock Band style buttons zooming past you on the floor, getting faster with each phase of the fight. Nope, not remotely fun at all. Such a shame, because this game deserves better than these kinds of boss fights.

Kingdoms of Amalur - ReReckoning
Someone here recommended it to me a couple months ago, and PS+ dumped it in my lap. So far I'm enjoying the game.

My girlfriend and I just finished It Takes Two. That's a really fun co-op game. Highly recommended. It's currently free on Game Pass.

Been alternating between Shin Megami Tensei 5 and Pokemon Shining Pearl mostly.

Leaving gamepass. Almost close to completing, but been trying to get 100% but this game is pissing me off. Too many fucking deaths at the end. I'm just gonna go to the end and skip the rest. Other than that was loving the game.

Re: What Are You Playing? (November 2021)

I have been a fan of the Pokťmon franchise ever since the original run of the anime like 20 years ago. Iíve collected the cards, played the puzzle game, the pinball game and even played PokťmonGo since it launched but Iíve never actually played one of the core RPG games.

So our 14 yo wanted to pickup the Pearl/Diamond double pack for the Switch (so did the wife) the other day and I have a Switch Lite not getting much use so I grabbed the Diamond game and Iíve put in about 5 hours so far and Iíve been missing out on so much all these years.

Yeah, itís a little grindy but Iím enjoying the buildup of the story - apparently another evil organization bent on world domination.

I really loved those two characters. I thought it was so well written. The combat really felt a bit unfair sometimes, but I was able to get through it. But those two, I was really rooting for them.

UnMetal…picked it up for what intended to be a second, lasted 50 minutes. So much fun. Love the stealth aspect. And 8 bit, 32 or however it’s drawn, is so charming. Have people heard of this one?

Bionic Commando…thought it was NES version, but sucky arcade version. I really wanted to do that one all over again. Even if it meant leaving on for days till I can play. Wanted to kill Hitler again. Oh well. I guess I never will.

Sat down and played Old Manís Journey (Switch) this afternoon. Wonderful little puzzle/story game where you manipulate the environment as he travels through the levels.




Takes about two hours to play through.

Ok so after a one day rest (Thank U Thanksgiving! ) of this game, today I was able to not only complete game but also was able to complete clean up the last 2 areas I was having trouble with. Also was able to beat a side boss ,
