Hey, Talking Time, Whatcha Playin?

Mute the voice acting. Maybe put on subtitles. I had to do this for Borderlands 3 and I still didn't finish it.

That's about where I'm at. I've been playing less and less, but I did play the other day...there was an entire sidequest about getting coffee for a character and the writing was SO INSANELY LAZY that I was just like...what the hell...

That said, I did get into a miniboss fight that was really tough and running around shooting guys felt fun as heck. So ah...still a mixed bag, for sure.

Also, Tetris Effect is a game I've played before. I played it at Shivam's in VR and it kinda just hurt my eyes and was hard to tell where the blocks were gonna fall? Well I bought it and played it last night (in the dark with headphones, while wishing I had weed on me) and it's RAD. It's also hard?! Like, I used to think I was good at Tetris, and then I bought Puyo Puyo Tetris and played online and well, that cleared things up real quick. The later stages of Tetris Effect where they turn the speed up to like 13 or 15 are fucking bonkers. The game is pretty forgiving in that you can start over on any portion of a stage and keep going but...it's still pretty rough. Anyway, those early stages were a religious experience though. Good stuff

While 2 is my favorite, the addition of the slide in Mega Man 3 really does make blueboy that much more fun to control. I don't understand why they took it out for 9 and 10.

I'm in Paradise Killer and this game is A Lot. I'm really liking the aesthetics, the investigating, the insane psychic connections to eldritch demon gods (which I somehow did not realize before beginning it), all of that... but good lord the writing is bad. The person who wrote this is not good at writing. They're not even correct at writing most of the time.

Same. My ideal classic Mega Man is "slide but no charge" (Mega Man S, to use Powered Up lingo), but I'd accept the charge shot if I could just have a slide in MM9 (which I love dearly even as-is). And no, super-knockback Proto Man doesn't count.

Anyway, I'm happy to report that Ori and the Will of the Wisps was made for me specifically! I'm not sure about the economic viability of that strategy, but I am grateful! As I was reassured upthread, it addressed my very minor gripes with the previous game, and I'm thoroughly enjoying traversing these stunning environments (and one absolutely terrifying environment) with some of the most delightful mobility I've experienced in a game. I loved getting the original's key abilities so quickly, and was uncertain if new abilities would be able to make as much of an impact. And while I don't think there's anything as game-defining as the bash ability, there are some pretty spectacular new tools that complement the holdovers from the previous game wonderfully. It's also great to be able to use my XP to obtain the specific upgrades that look fun and useful to me, while skipping/saving the less interesting ones for later. This has been an absolutely lovely Christmas present.

Just beat the first boss of Metal Gear 2. Man, Kojima was always Kojima.

The more I play Metal Gear 2 the more I appreciate it for what it is, rather than what it is compared to later entries. Once you actually get how stealth works in 2D you start to enjoy it more. Also making the Hind D my bihotch after the frustration of MGS was very satisfying.

Just beat Grenade Boss. I'm actually looking forward to more for the first time since I started playing.

It took a good five hours to start clicking, but now that I'm in Rapunzel world Kingdom Hearts 3 is really working for me. This game is seriously gorgeous.



And the environments are so big! It almost feels like sacrilege for a Kingdom Hearts to be more than a series of cubes. Combat's starting to come together too, but it's still very much mash X to win. I do expect it to get more demanding as I get further in, but I wonder if I've cheated myself out of my preferred HK experience by selecting Hard instead of Extra Hard. Why can't this children's game be as difficult as a Souls, says I, a man on the internet.

But regardless, it's a wonderful game to exist in and I got a big goofy smile on my face. Hoping the other worlds maintain this energy.
