Shadow of the Colossus scratches my Zelda itch in a way the real deal maybe never will.

Have you played any of the Dark Souls games?

My friend jokes that they're "Zelda for grown-ups".   :laugh:  But seriously, they are some of the best games I've ever played.

In my opinion, Breath of the Wild feels like an alpha version of Dark Souls :laugh:   ... Bloodborne is pretty great too.

I 100 percent-ed the public beta of (*deep breath*)
"What If Adventure Time was a 3-D Anime Game? And it's kind of perverted because it's anime"

For a game that could justifiably be called hentai and probably is, It play really really fucking well, essentially it feels like a bootleg Kingdom Hearts, minus XP gains or all the bells, whistles, and polish, that would come with a Square-Enix game, the graphics are well made and sit somewhere between Kingdom Hearts and Sims 3 in quality, the script is pretty bad though, I think it gets worse the further in you get.

The pornographic content can also be toggled off at the start of the game or from the options menu.

I actually just borrowed a PS3 for that express purpose ;)

Finally finished Divinity: Original Sin EE---although it is pretty long (I clocked in at ~75 hours after doing as much as I possibly could as far as side quests/exploring), it is one of the best overall games I've played in a long long time.  The gameplay is fantastic, the plot and writing were pretty great, and most of the puzzles were pretty fair and well done.  I only started to feel like the game was going a bit long towards the end, but it was still pretty good IMO--the difficulty towards the end is a complete joke on the regular difficulty though.  I actually finished the final boss in 2 rounds...

Really, if you haven't played the game but enjoyed stuff like Baldur's Gate, you should do yourself a favor and get it, because as much as I love some 2nd Ed DnD, this game improves on most everything about BG.

Had two weeks of vacation time, so I decided it was time to reduce my Steam backlog somewhat. Did manage to beat 3 games so far last week. I bought 5 new games during the Steam sale, so I only have to beat two more to come out even at the end :P But hey, I still have one more week for gaming and debauchery.

Short reviews of the games I've beaten over at Steam, I can recommend all of them:

Shadowrun: Dragonfall

Halcyon 6 Starbase Command

You Must Build A Boat (less than a dollar on sale atm!)

I've just beaten Ghosts 'n Goblins on my NES classic edition without save states! It felt rewarding.

Beaten Zelda Breath of the Wild.

I had a really tough time getting into this game. Initially I could only play it for like half an hour before getting bored and throwing it into a corner for a few weeks. This week I finally sat down, took some time and it eventually clicked. I still think the first few hours of the game are terrible. Practically everything one-shots you, loot seems useless and unrewarding and the first main quest sends you on a huge treck through empty terrain. But after that it gets much better. You need to have unlocked a few towers and shrines so you can fast travel around the world a bit and develop an eye for places that are worth investigating. Then the frustration and boredom are quickly replaced by lot's of motivation and the joy of exploring this insanely detailed world.

The amount of content is absolutely mind-blowing. It would be enough to fill 3 or 4 older 3D Zelda games. Do I miss the classic dungeons? Yes, but in return some of the shrines offered really hard puzzles that actually made me think again. That hasn't happened in a Zelda game in a looong time. I guess since they are all optional they felt they could throw in some harder ones this time. That doesn't mean there aren't still 50 shrines which you'll be able to solve just by looking at them for a second, but in the last few games that was every room. Also most importantly, Nintendo actually really risked something and changed the basic formular quite a bit instead of remaking OoT for the n-th time. You have to applaud them for that. I've demanded that for years and I'm glad they finally did it. Even the best food tastes stale when you eat it every day.

So I'm not ashamed to revise my initial opinion of this game and happily attest that it deserves the hype it got. It is a milestone game that shattered the standards of the open world genre that seems to be every AAA game these days. The bar just got set a lot higher. That doubly counts for Nintendo themselves though, I have no idea where they could even go from here. Just adding more stuff and making things even bigger wouldn't work. I wouldn't be surpised if they won't even try and make the next game much more intimate again.

I'd like to see things get more compressed again in the next game, ala Ocarina of Time --> Majoras  Mask, I'd also like to see some of MM's detective work puzzles make a comeback, following people and learning/messing with their daily routines was fun.

Haven't actually finished BOTW, my copy has been loaned out to several different people since I got it.

Finished the base game in Shadowrun Returns and the normal story mode in Phantasy Star Portable 2.

For SR, I liked it enough, but it really felt restrictive.  I've been told Dragonfall is a lot better, and I have it, so I'm looking forward to trying it out.  Especially looking forward to trying some of the more open workshop scenarios too---I think a more PnP Shadowrun experience might come off better to me.

PSP2 was good, but I really think the plot was terrible and soured me on the game a bit more than I wanted.  It was kind of obvious to me that they needed something to tie stuff into the past canon (not to mention shoehorn in baddies that were finished off in previous entries).  This was a bit sad to me because I liked most of the characters a more in this entry-----if I could splice Phantasy Star Universe's plot with this game's updated systems/gameplay and characters (of course minus those ridiculous opening/ending sequences for each chapter of PSU), I think it would make for a great game.

Finished the Pumpkin Noir demo, good game so far and I'm liking where the story is going, could use a lot more puzzle elements though since it's largely a straightforward "talk to everybody to advance" style of game, The soundtrack is awesome, especially love the Title/End theme, gonna be looking forward to updates.

Beat Symphony of the Night again this morning for the first time after getting access to my PSN account back (bought a PS3 again). "I Am The Wind," while reviled by some as a whitewashing of the credits theme that was in the Japan version, is one of my very favorite ending themes, and this time was a little different.

Made me think of my Mom, and I cried a little. Sniffled my way thru it, checked that the save was marked Clear (paranoid gamer lol), and quit to the xmb menu.
