Mass Effect: Andromeda.

 

Between the bad character models, bad animations, and generally sterile looking environments (doesn't look alive like some recent games), it feels like I'm playing the beta version of the game, not the final product.

 

Having said that, the actual game play is okay.  Combat is the same as always, and the story/quests are about on par with ME3 so far.  Not great, but fun enough to keep my interest.

 

But man, are the females ugly.

Finished Chapter 8 of Tales of Xillia in my NG+ run for Platinum. 8 more chapters to go :-P currently getting close to 250 hours mark O.o

250??
I did it in 80 or 90, I think. Are you going for all Grade stuff?

Oh, my bad, I missed 2 in my message :/ I play Tales of Xillia 2. I have finishe Platinum in Original ToX in about 135 hours. ToX 2 is lasting much longer for me, because beside of Platinum, I somehow feel, that I should unlock all waepons, beasts and skits in the encyclopedia :-D

Taking turns between three games:

Dex, Renegade Ops and Metro 2033 *Redux.

Looking forward to Lock's Quest HD, Crossing Souls and Shakedown Hawaii to come to Steam. Once they do, I'll probably be playing those two more than anything for a bit.

Rarely do I ever just play one game at a time. It's probably because I want to get some time in the games that are in my backlog.

I haven't played ToX2 yet. I hear the platinum is a pita, so I might skip it for the second game.

 

I beat Dragon's Crown yesterday. I don't know if I will go for higher difficulty playthroughs. I played a bit on hard and it was fun, but playing alone has finally got boring. I played some random online games and it was decent fun.

Grinding my way through Albion Online.  I'm a solid tier 4 character wielding a halberd and wearing royal plate armor.  You get to tier 2 gear almost immediately in the game.  Getting to tier 3 gear is fairly quick.  Tier 4 takes a bit of time, it's at this tier that you unlock the full complement of weapons and armor (Before tier 4 you can only wield a basic melee weapon, staff, or bow and wear basic cloth, leather, or metal armor). Tier 5 takes a long time to get to.  I can almost wield a tier 5 halberd now, though I wouldn't be able to afford one at the moment, nor can I craft my own yet, though I'm starting to get within shouting distance.  I imagine getting to tier 6 is going to take forever and tier 7 will take an absolutely absurd amount of time.  I suppose I shouldn't expect anything else from a MMO, though.  On the plus side, you're always making progress in the game, no matter what you do.  Literally every action you do in the game gains you fame (Experience, basically) both toward the specific skill(s) you were using (fighting with an axe, chopping a tree, smelting ore) as well as toward the overall adventurer rating (Being a higher tier adventurer allows you to use higher tier basic items and services, such as riding higher tier mounts.  Every bit of fame collected, regardless of what you are doing, counts toward raising adventurer tier).

It's actually quite good in a "I haven't played any warriors games to compare, but the characters are simply delightful" kind of way.

Actually it is not as much pita as it looked like, it just takes more time to do all the stuff, but keep in mind, that in my current 250 hours, I have spent at least 20 on completionist thingies, which are not required for Platinum.

The hardest things are Battle Trophies, but if I was able to master them all, most of the players should be able to do them as well. I do not consider myself Uber Tales of Pro regarding to combat execution. Tales of Zestiria Platinum will be much bigger pita.

The second issue I had was grinding Gaius' Chivalry support ability to 450. This one was time consuming, but in the end, I have found two enemies, which made the grind much faster. To bad I found it when I was at number 250 :-D

The enemies can be found in Culmar Trail and Mon Highlands. I do not know their names, but both have models of female soldiers/bandits. So if you ever go for the platinum, do not forget about these enemies. It will save you few hours for sure ;-)

Everything else was on par with original ToX. It has even the same recommended spots for some character related trophies and battle trophies.

Finished Mad Max. I've got to say, Avalanche Studios have quite a pair to direct the game in the way they did. I won't say more as to not spoil, but well done.

This has became my favourite one of the Ubisoft-styled open world games.

Guess I'm not playing Drakengard 3 anymore. My PS3 is shutting off in the middle of play, with online reports saying it matches symptoms for everything from overheating to drive failure.

I was really enjoying it, too. How are PS3s still $200?

And I still have Trails of Cold Steel 1 and 2 to play on PS3. And I am itching to replay the original Nier.

That's really strange, never heard of them doing that. Did you look up online to see if others are having similar issues?

PS3's are made up of really nice hardware, cell tech is awesome... a failed awesomeness but awesome nonetheless. PS3's are like the deloreans of consoles as far as I'm concerned although my favorite console was probably the 2001 Xbox :)

Yeah, there's lots of people with the same issue. It precedes a YLOD and was apparently pretty common in the old 60GB models. Which is what this is.

I ended up eventually buying 3 PS2s and have already moved to my second PS4. It's about time the PS3 was replaced. I got the dang thing at Circuit City.

Uggghhh.. that sucks! I'm sorry to hear that, frustrating..I have 2 models, the original "fat" PS3 40gb which has lasted since the time it released and then a White 500gb Slim model. I cant that I have had any issues with them yet.

Circuit City! The good ole days lol

The launch version of PS3 and generally the fat versions did overheat a lot. It's actually pretty interesting that it has managed to work this long. You should buy a new PS3 pronto since they just went out of production last month. Mine is still working but I'll buy a spare one next month since I still play a lot of games on it. 

 

Tip: try to find a slim version instead of the 500 GB super slim. The super slim has a weird disc tray and it can be bothersome.

The best one is the one I have, it has the slide open tray. You don't have to worry about it breaking and it's easy to clean :)

I have never heard of PS3's overheating until now. All my family and relatives still have their fat PS3's working, including me. Strange.... must have been a very small percent. I'm going to look into it just for curiosity.

Wait...what?! Some topics I came across right now(regarding PS3's overheating and the infamous YLOD) date back to 2011. That's some 6 years ago.

So, after hearing all the bad news about Andromeda (and frankly, feeling a little intimidated by its large AAA price tag), I decided to buy another game instead. Namely, Zero Escape: The Nonary Games. Another semi-visual novel by Chunsoft about 9 strangers who are kidnapped by a psycho and put into a death game. Oh Japanese people, you and your death games ;)

Still playing ESO, went in blind and having fun as a duel wielding dunmer.
Just been taking it easy and leveling up clothier, bs for weapons, and alch and enchanting.
Sadly quite a few people have told me that the race is not good for the class I'm playing.
Ce la vi, don't give a ****, I love dunmer rogues hehe


This is what always frustrates me with MMOs or even ARPGs that there's always a OP way to do a class or race and all I want to do is play games and have fun. I don't have the time nor want to spend the time to be the king of the leaderboards, I just want to enjoy myself.

 

 

Heh, most of the people hung up on this aren't "top" players anyway, they're just aping what they hear elsewhere without understanding (and understanding that for the content most people care about it doesn't matter one bit).

 

Personally been mostly playing Guild Wars 2, though I've also started in Guild Wars 1. There's a load of references from 2 to 1 so yeah, couldn't help myself :p

 

It's really surprising how different the games are from each other though, I'd have expected the class system of GW2 to be an evolution of GW1's but it's a total overhaul: the games have absolutely nothing in common (combat)mechanics wise. Still the GW1 intro was fun, hiking through pre-Searing Ascalon and getting to see the "other" side of the conflict (in GW2 you mostly get to hear the Charr, aka the GW1 "bad guys", side).

Actually needing corpses for a Necromancer was also kinda nice (until you get to fight elementals and undead. Ugh ;) )

I never really worry about min-maxing in any games, particularly MMO's. But I also don't worry about all that competitive mode stuff, I prefer to just enjoy the world and the stories.

They're hard to buy new from good sellers as it is. Gamestop only sells used consoles. Target, Walmart, Amazon only sell third party. The "Amazon's Choice" third party is a super slim.

Edit: And I've ordered my PS3. Amazon Prime had an option for delivery today, so I'll be back on the wagon in no time!

Mad Max was awesome. Vastly overlooked just because it released on the same day as The Phantom Pain, yet I prefer it more.

And I like most of Ubisofts games. Rayman games are still my jam after 20 years? Lol
