I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

The MGS games really do have absurd, ridiculous storylines. They are a lot of fun to play. My favourite so far is Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (Snake Eater).

MGS4 was very well known for the amount of cut scenes and I'm pretty sure a lot of people complained about them, as well as the radio sequences (which kinda acts like cut scenes too). It was especially annoying how MGS4 had to essentially "install" every damn Act.

I have mixed opinions on Old Snake. On one hand, I think the concept is cool but on the other hand, it would have also been cool to play as a younger, in-his-prime Snake too.

Been playing Dark Souls 2 a bunch.

It's kinda disappointing. Nowhere near as good as the other two games.

I think if I was using magic, it would feel more powerful. But going melee only yields few rewards in this game.

I just found out that I accidentally joined a covenant that ramps up the difficulty of the game and that's why the game was so disappointing for me.

Well shit. At least now I know I'm still hardcore as fuck enough to play through extra hard Dark Souls.

A small consolation.

Ikaruga and Jamestown.

2 really good shmups. I already went trough Jamestown a couple times, but there's still some challenges to do and harder difficulties.

Ikaruga has a pretty unique game style with the polarity changing that I need to get more comfortable with.

That is one humble brag there, Longo.

But honestly good on you. I've been talking to a coworker about DS2 and it sound just insane. There's a reason I'm scared of them.

Well, I am a very humble man. Still, it's not my fault that I was blessed with awe-inspiring hardcore talent.

So what you're saying is it's an awesome game to you now?

I wouldn't quite call it awesome, but it's still good. It's gone from a 3.5 to a 4 in my book, and it may just keep going up.

If you haven't played Demon's or Dark Souls 1, I would still recommend playing those before moving on to this one. Like, the big problems with this game is that a lot of stuff doesn't unlock until NG+. Like, the best weapons and spells are all at the endgame, there are no 100% physical damage blocking shields until much later (as opposed to starting with them in the other two games), fewer poison cure items and more poison, and there is less invincibility with rolls.

It's still a great game, but still the weakest. Though considering its competition, there's no wonder why.

Man I'm having a ridiculously tough time with the final Banner Saga set piece. I can now see all the mistakes I made up to this point and I might be best off restarting from the beginning. Sad

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls. I stayed away from the original due to the fact that it had real money auction houses and shit loot but with the 2.0 patch the game is actually pretty fun (even if it's a bit easy).

Diablo III wasn't very good in the past, but it's apparently really awesome now with the 2.0 patch and the Reaper of Souls expansion pack. I might get back into it...

I'm finishing off Skyrim DLC achievements and FFX whilst I wait for Trials Fusion on the 16th. Seriously fucking excited for that game.

I might get the FFX HD remix when the price drops.

Still playing Infamous: Second Son when I can.

I excited for it too, but I'm hoping it's worth the price.

so you're speed farming Torment 6? it's a loot grind. loot grinds never really have anything to do with actual player skill difficulty.

Knowing how to gear/play your build etc. is about it. Knowing how best to efficently farm with your current setup helps too. Otherwise just pray to the RNG gods.
