  1. Red Dead Redemption II: Official Trailer #2

    I agree. Based on the trailer, he doesn't seem like a very appealing or likable main character. I hope that I feel differently when I play the game, because it will be difficult to stay interested if I don't like playing as him.
  2. Thoughts on Bioshock?

    The BioShock games are some of my favorites, I enjoyed all of them especially the first and Infinite.
  3. I agree. I much prefer turn-based combat to realtime combat in JRPGs.
  4. Final Fantasy IX on PS4 NOW ($16.79 until Sep. 26)

    This is my favorite Final Fantasy. Bought, and playing. Now I want VIII, it's my second favorite Final Fantasy.
  5. Digital or Not...Again

    I collect physical media, so I always buy physical copies of games unless digital is the only option.
  6. I finished it, and it's my current GOTY. It was a dark, disturbing and emotional journey from start to finish, and I enjoyed every minute of it. The story, characters, environments and music are some of the best that I've experienced in a game. The game elements were solid enough with visceral sword combat and puzzle solving, but I admit that I would have liked a little more actual gameplay like environment interaction such as climbing and platforming since primarily walking through the environments seemed like a missed opportunity given the design of them. But overall I don't have too many complaints with the game, it was a well crafted experience throughout.
  7. That would be too soon for me as I just got my PS4 last year, and I currently have 150+ games for it with more out now that I want and more on the way. If the PS5 came out in 2019, by the time that I got to it I would never be able to catch up with all its games.
  8. Yakuza developers announce "Fist of the North Star" game

    Binary Domain is an awesome game that deserved more recognition, but like you mentioned the demo didn't represent it very well and probably turned a lot of people off. It also didn't help that the cover art for the game was rather poor, and off putting as well. I admit that I waited to buy it when it was really cheap for those reasons, but I would have bought it sooner if I knew how good that it was. As for Fist of the North Star, it looks really good. I'm a fan of the anime and beat-em-ups, so I expect to really like it.
  9. What are You Playing This Weekend?

    You should check out Sonic Generations if you haven't already, because it's a really good blend of old and new IMO. Yeah, I agree. I think that Sonic Mania is a lot of fun for the reasons that you mentioned, but I personally would like an all new made from the ground up 2D Sonic game with cartoon quality art and animation similar to the new Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap. Hopefully we'll get something like that in the future.
  10. What are You Playing This Weekend?

    I feel that 10 hours is about the right length for linear single player games, 20+ for more open-ended ones and 40+ for RPGs. While I'm a fan of the early 16-bit Sonic games and I feel that Sonic Mania is a great homage to them offering remixes of some classic levels as well as some new ones, it still feels a little too familiar to the 16-bit games that I played in the past for me to get really excited about. I know that I'm in the minority, but that's nothing new.
  11. I really like the first game, but I don't care too much for the sequels after it. However, DmC is really good IMO. I think that's the only thing that you can be, but I didn't know that you could choose the gender and customize the look of the character. That's kinda cool. I agree. It's a lot more arcade-y and silly looking than I was expecting, but it still looks fun and I'll pick it up when I can get it for $40 or less.
