Stanely Parable. It is hilarious and thought provoking.

I never had any problems with original Drakengard, at the time of its release I thought it was a fun and amazing game, even with its combat system. The maps were huge. >.> HUUUUGE. Though it did feel repetitive at times. The only thing I didn't like was the censorship, which I found out later after beating the game because some of the scenes seemed unclear. Especially near end in the game where that one person went off to do that one thing and you honestly have no clue why they did that due to all the censoring involving those characters' relationship. Only after research it made sense; although if there is anything I despise, it is the sheer censorship of imported videogames. >.<

I believe Drakengard 2 had some censored parts too, but not 100% sure on when and where. I mean... Drakengard 2 is basically the Devil May Cry 2 of videogames, I think everyone likes to pretend there wasn't any second ones in both regards.

I don't mind low budget games, hell Nier is fun in its own regard. The only thing  I do mind is when low budget game doesn't even make an attempt on their project. I can name a few, but this isn't the area to gripe on such, maybe later I will. If I can give a game a chance and it holds my interest in some fashion, I generally keep playing it. Whether it is too huge ass maps like Drakengard where all I did mostly was ride on my dragon and rain fireballs down on foe, s(because moving anywhere on foot was a pain,) or toned down quick pace combat, or the general exploring and crafting and other side things you can do in Nier. They did well in all their voice acting and music for those games, the only real complaint was censorships.

DDS is absolutely fantastic thus far. I had Nocturne before it, but honestly I like DDS a lot more. I don't think they have put up DDS2 yet unfortunately, so I hope that one gets added at some point.

Nocturne? Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne? That was a good game. Also kind of a rare game, I actually managed to track down a PS2 copy long time ago during the period where PS3 was out and PS2 games were still being sold at Gamestop.

Right now I am juggling between Nier and Watchdogs.

It was kinda rare, but it's up on the PSN for PS3 now. Only $10, I believe the only PS2 era SMT/Persona games not on the PSN now are the 2nd DDS and 2nd Raidou games.

I know, I was relating more towards owning an actual cd copy. It is hard to find, unless you ebay it or something. xD Well, today anyways since PS2 is generations ago.

The gamestop near me still has a copy of Nocturne.  I have them all via ps3 download and obviously I have Golden on my vita.  Pretty much the only Jrpg I play other than the Tales series.

I have Nocturne too, but haven't played it yet. The rarest in my collection are Suikoden and Suikoden II. I really want to get my hands on the Hack GU collection.

I've got the Nocturne DVD, but just the PS3 DL of DDS.

I think my rarest games is .hack// Parts 1, 2, 3 of the original series. ;3; I wish part 4 wasn't so expensive and hard to find, otherwise I'd have a complete set.

I've also got Radiant Historia, that game was horrible to track down, although you can get it on amazon pretty cheap last I checked.

We have those, but I can't take credit for them. Hubby got them new and kept them, back when they came out.

I played those and Legend of Legaia 2. I love how those games turn based combat wasn't just sitting there and selecting commands. You actually did stuff.

I just finished playing The Last if Us. I enjoyed it, but I really felt bad about the ending.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
I mean Joel just screwed the world over. Yeah it was shitty that they weren't bothering to ask Ellie, but she even confronted Joel at the very end giving indication that she may have agreed to that. I don't know. I loved Ellie, but to rob the world of a possible cure seemed selfish.

Well that's my two cents on it.

Ending? That game had an ending? That is weird, I don't remember any endings with my copy. :/

If you're going to whack a game over the head for its ending, give Rage a few short sharp kicks, because it stopped at the story's halfway point.

On to games I've been Playing and Enjoying, on the other hand: Age of Wonders 3, Bastion, Overlord 2, Red Faction: Guerilla, Nier, Dark Souls 2, and RE5 have all had turns on screen in the last month.

I loved Overlord 2 because of the Mistresses, Minions, and the fact you punch out hippy elves and cheesy Romans.

If you haven't played Miami Hotline, stop what you are doing right now and go play Miami Hotline. Seriously. You will return a different person.
Transistor is also amazing.

While I'm sure going on a random drug-fueled killing spree would turn me into a different person, I'm not sure that's an endorsement for doing it. >.>

We're close to 100%-ing Bravely Default.

We're in the end of chapter 6, with everyone at level 99, at least 3/4 of the jobs are complete for everyone, slowly crawling through the items and abilities.

I want to finish the game within the next week~.

I never really reach Rage's halfway point. I lost interest sometime after you finally get to the city or first town. I dunno, I was expecting much more from the game at the time.

Right now, I am still playing same games I mentioned posts ago, but mainly Watch Dogs since I re-hook my PS4 up.

I've been mostly playing Warframe or Black Light: Retribution right now, seeing as they are f2p games. Also occasionally MH3U because who doesn't love slaying giant monsters and carving them for parts to make new weapons and armor? My youngest brother is actually proving more competent than me at the last two mentioned games, taking on G-rank mission wyverns by himself online for MH3U and actually making a gun on BLR that can one shot most folk unless they get a little more armor.

Rage has pretty much put me off Id, they've lost it in my eyes.

Played Transistor. I finished it and I'm playing it again.

;_____; Ahmygod, the feels for this game. So intense. Also, I really enjoy the battle gameplay here, and the story is actually rather interesting if one takes the time to actually explore around in the game. Just such a pretty game, beautiful soundtracks, and.. the ending! Feeeeeeeelllsss.

Another recommendation: I just finished Fire Emblem: Awakening today between practices. Went right into Hard. Game is fantastic.
