Total War: Shogun 2. You can lay siege to Japanese cities, slaughter armies of soldiers by the thousands, assassinate generals with ninjas, and import fine cotton from the Korean Kingdom.

I'm surprised it's not more popular here.

Persona 5
Something about playing a high-school kid in an Asian school while IRL being a school teacher in an Asian school is oddly satisfying.
  I totally understand what you mean! I feel like that playing Diablo 3.
  Something about slaying hordes of little demons while IRL teaching them English is oddly satisfying.  :smiley:

The spontaneous, unearthly shrieks produced by students in the hall before my after-school program begins does lend to the credence that they may not be students at all and instead drones from the eternal abyss enacting the work of the Prince of Nine Hells.

:) darlings, really.

My Take Your Heart edition of p5 arrived today. I can only gaze longingly at it while I wait for a PS4 to come from Amazon.

It was just as expensive to buy a new pro as it was to ship my oldie, lol.

I just finished dishonoured, I ended with a low chaos ending. At some point in the future I'll try a high chaos play through but that won't be for a while. Next up for me is spec-ops the line.

Played Civ6 this weekend. Civ6 isn't a game, it's a time machine which transports you from 5pm to 2AM.

If you played Civ5, does the gameplay differ from it much? :O
I tried to play 5, as a lot of my friends love that game, but could never get into it. :(

It's Civ5 with different graphics and a few changes, specifically the district system. The districts can make the game more dynamic, if you decide to go into deeper strategies.
I'd say it is slightly more forgiving than Civ5.

The issue most people have with Civ games is the learning curve. I'd focus on learning the dynamics of one victory condition and going for that, instead of trying to balance everything out. Stick to the smaller maps and quicker games at first.

Yeah, I spent about 2 hours playing CIV5 on a small map just using 1 race and 1 win condition, I think. It was a while ago that I tried, so I don't remember what exactly what I done. but I hadn't gotten the hang of it by then, so just kinda stopped haha.

I just picked up 'The Elder Scrolls online: gold edition' it's a non-subscription based MMO, and it's on sale on steam for 50% off. :D

260 for a brand new sealed American Wii U. Do I want one? Maybe.

Worth it for:

Xenoblade X
Shantae
Smash Bros
Zelda Windwaker, Twilight Princess, Breath of the Wild
Bayonetta 2


HMMMM WHAT DO I DO.


Bruh.  Breath of the Wild. 

Them other games too, but especially BotW.  Looks gorgeous.

Yeah. I bought it. I'm weak. Glad I have another video game machine I'll literally never play. I'm stuck in this mindset of "I want to have a fun and play games and stuff" so I buy stuff, and then I'm like "wait a sec, I never have time to play games."

Thanks what I'm like with steam.  :cry: I'll see a game that looks really cool on sale, buy it and go wait, I'm still playing X game, and have like another X amount of games on my back log. I'm up to 346 games on steam as of this morning, and I've probably only played about 30 - 40 of them.
To be fair, a lot of them have come from humble bundle, when they have a game I want in the bundle. But a good chunk have also come from steam sales where they are cheap, I buy them, and I just never play them due to playing lots of other games lol.

Maybe you'll get lucky and something on Craigslist or here will turn up.
Torturing myself with Stalker Clear Sky at the moment. Surviving firefights only to die of blood loss is part of life and death in the zone.
Also Rage is awesome, why there was mixed reception is anyone's guess. Closest thing to a Mad Max FPS you'll get.

Sorry for reviving a semi-dead thread...

But finally got Persona 5 from Play-Asia, and it's been a long time coming.

Still got to get through a slew of other PS4 games as well, like that FFXV game with mixed reviews...

Anyone want to swap PSN IDs and be friends?

Horizon: Zero Dawn is really cool.

Interesting combat. Cool narrative. And gorgeous, good lord.

Recently finished Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 which is amazing when it wants to be, but it is full of bugs. Supposedly it is kind of broken now from the recent patch on pc.

Been playing Prey. Kind of an old-school fps game like Half-Life 1 and 2 but with modern polish.

I popped in Kingdom Hearts 2.8 in my machine the other weekend.  That game is a marvel to look at.  I don't know if it was worth the price of admission but it made me heavily anticipate Kingdom Hearts 3 when it is released in 2032.

What do you all think of SNES Classic?  Do you think regular people will be able to get one?  Or will Nintendo be stupid again?  I know if I can't get an SNES Classic, I am done dealing with Nintendo.  I will never buy another Nintendo product and I will tell all of my friends to do the same.

I'd love to get my hands on one but I'm not getting my hopes up.  Still gonna try though!  Supposedly Nintendo is gonna make significantly more units than they did for the NES classic.   But that's a pretty vague statement for them to make as they didn't produce many units for the NES classic anyway...
