  1. God forbid, people like to look at women (AND MEN, I'M NOT SEXIST) (be they real or animated) and media presenting them in a suggestive/sexy way.
  2. I sure as hell know what doesn't put me off.
  3. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    Yeah, but it's still all a little light on info. Good. Here's hoping that it'll be enjoyable.
  4. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    YES! I've only encountered one so far but I was completely absorbed in it. Haven't had this experience with gaming in a long time. It was an incredible mix between interactivity (the fight itself), "cutscenes" (scripted scenes from the battle), the interaction between party members, the visuals and the music (that track you posted). Speaking of music: it's incredible. The battle themes are so good. The piano is just amazing Oh and the battles...Obviously they aren't as tactical as turn-based iterations but they are fun as hell. Every move has some "weight" to it. You hit an enemy/get hit and you kinda "feel" it. Weird to describe it, but that's my eperience so far
  5. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

    That trophy picture sure is tidy, innit?

    11 hours in, FFXV still got me. After a couple of sidequests I decided to follow the story missions for a while. Aaaaand I still have no idea what exactly is going on. I'm trying to power up...sure. A couple of people that look like bad guys/gals were introduced in a 45 second cutscene...great. One of them threatened the fuck out of me...ok? And this one overly suspicious dude just miraculously shows up to help whenever shit's going down...cool. Now, do I know anything about those characters aside from the fact that they're trying to fuck me up in one way or another? No. In itself that's not a big problem, but according to the chapter # that I've completed I'm 1/3 through the game and the story hasn't progressed at all. The game seriously needs to provide more context and plot soon. But not for a while as I will most likely focus on sidequests again Anyway, the game does look pretty. I've chosen the "favour framerate" option so it's not as pretty as it can be, but it's still beautiful. I love looking through the photos Prompto takes.
  7. General Retro Discussion

    I remember playing it when I was about 10 years old, which means aprox. 5-6 years after its release. Whether it was a big thing...no idea as I wasn't into the industry as a whole back then. I just played video games and couldn't give a fuck about anything else I would only assume that it did relatively well, since it was a launch title IIRC. Then again, I can only extrapolate from my experience with which games my friends owned back then and Wipeout was in most of my mates' collections.
  8. Yooka Laylee And The Impossible Lair

    Meh. Not for me. It's average at best. And also not that difficult. Would you say Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair is more difficult?
  9. Your 2019 Gaming Diary

    I have. It's been a long time, though. I do, however, remember quite a bit But it's a pretty cool movie in itself, so I'll gladly watch it again I hear ya. I've bought it a couple of weeks after launch and should've done my research before because I immediately sold it after reading about how fucked the narrative was and how there were plans to patch it.
  10. Yooka Laylee And The Impossible Lair

    Which ones? The old SNES games, i.e. the good ones? Or the new Wii/Wii U games, i.e. the shit ones? Awesome I'll definitely get this game sooner, rather than later. Could be a nice birthday present to myself at the end of November
  11. Breaking Bad

    (I'll quote you here, since this is the dedicated Breaking Bad thread ) Watched it last night and enjoyed it. That's it. It wasn't unnecessary but it also wasn't necessary, if that makes any sense...nice to have, but as @Dog-amoto said: Still, Aaron Paul is incredible as Jesse Pinkman, no matter if it's in the series or the movie.

    Been spending some time with Final Fantasy XV these days. 6 hours since Friday, to be precise. The longest I've spent with a single-player game in that short amount of time since Slay the Spire. Now...do I like it? Yes, yes I do. It took a while, though, for a couple of reasons: talking to people is slow and I can't think of any reason why the devs thought it would be a good idea; but I got used to it and it's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things menues after talking to people are slow (e.g. accepting hunts, ordering food, etc.)...yeah, yeah, you get it the fighting system I had to get away from the idea that battles are like any other action game, i.e. you can fight and never get hit; maybe eventually you can but right now it seems impossible once I understood that it's still a JRPG, the fights became a lot more fun; I got back into the rhythm of attacking, using magic, using techniques and healing via items; just like in traditional (and turn-based) JRGPs Now that these aspects "clicked", I very much enjoy the game. I know that the story isn't particularly fleshed out, in the sense that the narrative is pretty fucked. However, I do own the movie Kingsglaive (which takes place before and during the first 2 chapters) and there's an anime (Brotherhood) to watch, which both help getting deeper into the lore. I will watch both pretty soon. If, in the end, those three sources of lore are not enough then FFXV and I will have a problem But that's something to think about when I'm done with the experience.
  13. What Have You Bought?

    Should arrive today or tomorrow.
  14. Been listening to the remake's soundtrack and I have to say: It's beautiful. I love me some new renditions of some of my favourite tracks in gaming history. Art style is still shit, though
  15. Wanna hear some shredding Link's Awakening tunes? So, @ArtMediocre you gonna do a colab with FamilyJules?
