What are you playing? (April 2024)

Spoiler:


Remind me not to autospoilers ever again.


I'm six missions away from finishing Midnight Suns. I'm doing a

playthrough and want to eventually do a
Spoiler:
Dark

playthrough and maximize all friendships, explore the grounds, etc. But I just want to finish the story once first straight to the end. I was having so much fun I played 9 hours before I decided to do the first story mission.


Ignore everything in the spoiler I can't make it disappear so I'll be using manual tags.

I'm six missions away from finishing Midnight Suns. I did a

play though and I want to do a
Spoiler:

​​​​​​

Then I want to finish Alone in the Dark and then I want to finish The Thaumaturge. I want to finish all the Story games. I'm doing. In two weeks Disney Speedstorm has a new season coming and those always come in heavy with stuff to do, so hopefelly I can wrap up the story games by then. I should be able to finish MS this week and Alone in the Dark next week and in The Thaumaturge I did like an intro mission so there's not much story to memorize yet so that could go on hold. I don't want to start any story games for a while, MS has so much to do I want to savor it for a while. I really love that game (all three story games are great).

I'll probably have this finished in the next week or so. I made it a point to get all of the achievements in Fallen Order, but I don't think I'm going to be a completionist this time around. I'm really enjoying Survivor, but it's not inspiring that "must do everything!" urge that other games often do.

After this...who knows? I might finally fire up Persona 5 Royal, which I bought and never played on the PS4, and I've been sitting on the PS5 version (still sealed!) for a year and a half. I've been too intimidated by the length to start, but maybe this'll be my moment...leaving me backlog-free for the first time in several years! Barring that, it'll be something on sale between now and the end of the month, or maybe I'll grab Stellar Blade if I have a good time with the demo (which I've downloaded but haven't started yet).

Re: What are you playing? (April 2024)

Finished main story of Marvel's Midnight Suns and got New Game +. I'll stop it now even though I'm nowhere close to 100% which I want to. Too bad I got it at Epic and not Steam, better achievements. I want to focus on Alone in the Dark now and finish that story, thankfully it's short, just to wrap loose ends with story games. I'm gonna wait on The Thaumaturge for now, I did an intro mission so I know a bit of the story but nothing really to forget, just basic premise. Disney Speedstorm is coming up with a new season in 8 days and that come in chockful of stuff. I still do my Disney Dreamlight dailies and still play Disney Sorcerer's Arena on my phone.

I don't know why the game wasn't a commercial success, it was such an awesome game. May have felt different if I paid $100 vs. $18, but I still think of all the $100 games out there, this was worth it. I don't even know what the NG+ is but I know there's harder missions and I haven't even fully finished all the DLC which is just redemption arcs for fallen heroes. Once Speedstorm slows down in a few weeks I will return to this now and then for 20 mins here 20 mins here. I did 9 hours of side missions before I even did the first story mission, the game was so good. Then towards the end I skipped all the side stuff and just wanted to finish to get the story. Just exploring the Abbey grounds will take tons of mine. I'm at 32.85 hours now so it took me like 23 hours just for the story. Highly recommended game.

Now that I finally finished FFVII: Rebirth I'm moving on to Princess Peach: Showtime! (Switch) and Open Roads (PS5).

Re: What are you playing? (April 2024)

I started and finished Through Your Eyes today (like 3 bucks on Steam and I've become hooked on these story walking simulator games) and it just wrecked me and I've been depressed the whole day.

I have Open Roads downloaded from Gamepass but I need a week to recover from Through Your Eyes first.

Since the game starts on 4/9, I thought I might try to play in as close to real time as I can. And I just finished 4/14, so…errr, early days, but I’m on track! Hopefully that’ll make an intimidatingly long game easier to swallow.

Re: What are you playing? (April 2024)

Wasn't feeling Open Roads and after five minutes shut it down and read the whole story on Wikipedia. I don't mind clicking, but I don't want to click through four erasers and three cups per item that matters. Story was par for this kind of game. Glad I skipped it and just spent the five minutes reading it.

Sounds like that update should be in the Book Talk section.

Top Spin 2K25. Good tennis games are hard to come by, and this one is fun so far.

I played Lightyear Frontier early access to completion. I started a new game of Stardew Valley to experience the new updates.

Re: What are you playing? (April 2024)

I finished AC Mirage and have moved on to Far Cry 6. Having finished 4, 5, and New Dawn relatively recently, I was hankering for more, but I started it and was feeling like maybe I had overdone it. However I just took out two ships' worth of bad guys like I was in a Die Hard movie so maybe I'm ready for it after all.

Re: What are you playing? (April 2024)

Recently Finished:
Princess Peach: Showtime! (Switch)
Open Roads (PS5) (a breezy story exploration game with great voice acting and an engaging story with some nice twists along the way. It's not at the level of Gone Home or Everybody's Gone to the Rapture but it's a solid B-Tier one of these games)

Up Next:
Dave the Diver (PS5)
Sand Land (PS5)

I played a couple hours straight last night and I can already tell I'm going to love it.

If you like point and click story games, you HAVE to try Before Your Eyes. That game wrecked me. I was depressed for a whole day. I will remember that game for life. What Remains of Edith Finch has been my second favorite.

I've been interested in Sand Land but I'm not very familiar with the franchise. Does anyone know if the recently released anime on Hulu follows the same story as the game? Or are they complimentary?

I've read the manga and watched the recent anime series and from everything I've seen of the game it looks to tell the same story as the anime series although expanded quite a bit. It's a really fun and interesting story so highly recommend the anime series if you end up not playing the game.

Re: What are you playing? (April 2024)

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade was half off on steam so that's my next story game. Never played a FF game. Rebirth will eventually make it to pc too. Speedstorm has been taking most of my time. And I still have tons to do.

The Sand something game (Blast? Land?) looked like a walking simulator with more reading than playing so I'll be watching the anime series and then watching a playthrough in YouTube. Looked interesting but I'd eater just sit back and watch it.

It's nothing like that. It's an open world action game with a focus on vehicle combat.
