Wot I bought last - a fool and their money mystary edition

Recommended Posts

Assassin's Creed Odyssey was the first installment of that series that I've played, and I really liked it, so I've just bought Ass Creed Valhalla, but this time I didn't splash out for a season pass. I'm even going through the trouble of downloading Ubisoft Connect (sadly no Steam this time around), but I know that this game will be fun enough to be great value for money.

I bought Yakuza: Like a Dragon. I probably won't get to play it for a while, since the download will take forever via whatever wifi I can get wherever I'm parked. New characters, new city, new combat system, same wacky shenanigans. I'm excited!

The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon

Way overdo to buying this.  I only put it off because I overplayed the main game and achieved all the best outcomes so I was a bit burnt out.  Time to get this thing reinvigorated and pay homage.

Scooped up Sniper Ghost Warrior Contacts from the Steam winter sale. I've not played the previous games, but supposedly this one is Hitman-ish, presumably with a greater emphasis on putting bullets in noggins from a great distance, as opposed to drowning people in toilets. It's a budget title, so I expect some jank (never stopped me before). It was $10 so I figured what the heck.

Calico - some low cost indie sim/rpg with simple graphics.  (Eventually) ride a giant cat! *buy-click*

Medieval Dynasty - wander/explore, build up a village (that'll do work/gather stuff for you? eventually you're the boss? dunno?), hunt, collect stuff, do quests for villagers, build stuff, survive hunger/weather/thirst.  Maybe if you think of something like Banished only in 3D/survival-sim format? It's been in early access for a few months and they recently added horses (if you can get enough gold to get one...).  Controller friendly so no thumb-destroying mouse needed.  Seems ok at the start.

I can assure you that there is no lack of pantsu... well, if you use the uncensored option there are most definitely scenes with lack of pantsu but that's probably not what the Twitter Tears™ were going for. :-

Nintendo recently sent me an e-mail telling me that I can buy coupons in the online store. 99€ for two full price games... means I just bought the most blatant cash grab in history, Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Bravely Default 2.

I wanted both anyway, and with the clock ticking on 3D All-Stars that just sealed the deal. At least I can pretend to have minimized the effect for totally falling for a cashgrab by saving 20€, even though never having played Sunshine or ever finished Super Mario Galaxy (only the second one) would be justification enough, I guess. :yes:

Now there's only one tiny problem that remains. How can I get my visiting nephew to stop hugging my Switch? 🤔

Wasteland 3. Thanks GOG for timely discount, I really need to cleanse palate from JRPG-y things and play grizzled, jaded combat veterans who are not 14 year old girls in miniskirts. :getlost:

I do wish jrpgs were a little grittier.  I enjoy them but very tropey.

Grittier?

The Shinra raid on Corel.

The Nibelheim Incident.

The Sector 7 plate collapse.

Wedge? Dead in the Sector 7 plate collapse.

Biggs? Dead in the Sector 7 plate collapse.

Jessie? Dead in the Sector 7 plate collapse.

Dyne? Presumed dead. Then too crazy so killed by his best friend.

Barret's right arm? Shot to pieces so Dyne would fall to his death.

Aerith? Dead.

Zack? Dead.

 

Under all the big eyes and cuteness and Mogs and Chocobos, jrpgs are darker than most western rpgs would dare be.

Unobtrusively informing you about my new ebook (which you should feel free to read and shower with praise).

I kind of like that "monsters" look like toys and spill sparkly things instead of intestines when you hit them, sometimes one needs respite from all the gore. It's certain other anime tropes that rub me wrong way. :getlost:
