#14249244 RPG Thread XX has over 100 hours of gameplay

Posted by Krymner on 26 December 2019 - 07:21 PM

As for my 2019 RPG year-end review, I would say it was a good year for the genre. I only played a few newly released RPGs (Tales of Vesperia DE, Fire Emblem 3 Houses), and crossed a few off the backlog (Battlechasers, .HACK//G.U., Phantasy Star 1, Persona Q, Xenoblade Chronicles 2). There's also a couple RPGs that I picked up and put down without finishing (Xenoblade Chronicles 1, Dark Rose Valkyrie).

 

Of all the RPGs I played this year, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was my personal favorite. Its so much better than I thought it would be, and I'm looking forward to a New Game+ replay sometime in the future. My biggest disappointment was Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It's a good game, just not as deep combat-wise as I was hoping, and the bits in-between the fights could sometimes get boring. (IMHO, the X-Com strategy games were better SRPGs.) My biggest surprise of the year was Battlechasers: Night War, since I did not expect that game to be as good as it turned out.

 

Going into next year, I'm currently still playing Bravely Second. The story gets a little better as it unfolds, but it still isn't as good as the first, and I still hate having to pick acquiring one job asterisk over another. I'm holding out hope that there's a way in the post-game to get all the jobs.

 

One of my 2020 New Year's resolutions is to play more backlogged RPGs, especially from my PS2 collection. I still need to start SMT: Digital Devil Saga 2, and I now have the entire Wild Arms collection to play thru. Lots to keep me busy. As for new games, I'm looking forward to disappearing into Persona 5 Royal, then there's the Xenoblade Chronicles 1 remake, and am still optimistic about the FF VII remake. There's a few other RPGs I'm watching out for (Tales of Arise, Cyberpunk, Darkest Dungeon 2, etc) and I hope to be surprised with other new RPGs.

Been playing more Resident Evil games. Did a Jill's story run in REmake HD. I started playing RE Zero using the Wesker version, but its just as bad as the regular REzero, so I quit once I got past the train part. I was disappointed that its just Wesker in play, and Billy in the cutscenes, but I guess I was expecting too much....

 

Anyway, started a replay of RE: Revelations on PS4. I played the first one back on the Wii U, but never played the second one, so I'm looking forward to finally getting to it. 

 

 

I went to see Avengers: Endgame on Sunday and thought it was okay. Again, I guess I was expecting too much. I mean, it was good, and had some really great moments, but I thought it carried too much sadness. My favorite part was

Wasn't expecting that, but it was a pretty great moment. (Ha, that spoiler isn't actually a spoiler, btw. Go ahead and click it.)

If I haven’t played a DMC, should I start with V?

You can. There is a video you can watch from the opening screen that gives you a run-down of everything that happened in DMC 1-4 and hits all the major story notes from those past games.

Grats on DMC5, and I'm hyped that its so good. I'm gonna finally start this weekend.

 

Just finished up my replay of DMC4. I forgot about that tedious dice-rolling stage, especially the last one. Ugh. Oh well, I still love Nero's devil arm in that game and I'm glad that I've finally gotten thru all 1-4 of the previous Devil May Cry games. I do want to eventually get back to them and replay them on a harder difficulty and use different characters (I only played them on normal on this play-thru), and I might even get around to replaying and finally beating the bastard-child Ninja Theory DmC, but that'll wait for another time. DMC5 first.

Haven't had much time to play DMC4 recently, and every time I had game-playing time, I was playing Resident Evil instead. Playing the RE2 remake had me jonesing for classic RE action, so I replayed the RE1 HD remake. Just Chris's story. Even tho RE2 remake was awesome, I still think RE1 remake is still my favorite Resident Evil game.

 

I'd really love it if Capcom were to release the classic RE PS1 trilogy on newer consoles, especially the Switch. Maybe add in Code: Veronica. I still love the classics. Its been a long time since I've played them, and I'd have to get out the Gamecube to play most of them. I don't even currently own a copy of the classic RE 1, so I'd have to buy it off PSN and play it on the Vita I guess? Oh, isn't it on the PS1 classic mini-console? I guess I could get that?

 

 

Anyway, I did pick up DMC5. Its great to hear the reviews are so positive.

Gonna try and finish up DMC3 this weekend so I can move on to DMC4 next week.

 

DMC5 in two weeks!

 

 

When I first got my PS3 (in '08, I waited in line at Best Buy from 2pm till midnight-10 hours!-for the MGS4 bundle when it came out), I had pre-bought some games before I ever had the system, knowing I was going to get it soon. I recall Gamefly was having an online sale, and one of the titles I picked up was DMC4. At that time, I had never played any of the DMC games, but it was the GGT that recommended it, so I thought it couldn't be too terrible, so I bought it.

 

I thought it was awesome, and it sparked my love for the genre. Thanks GGT! Some of you have great taste in games!

Played a bunch of Switch the last few days. A little this and that; mostly Let's Go Pikachu, Travis Strikes Again, and Tetris 99.  I also tried out the Yoshi and Deamon X Machina demoes and thought they were pretty neat. Not sure if I'll pick either up when they come out.

 

I've only gotten as high as 14th in Tetris 99, and most of the time I'm nowhere close to the top twenty. Its good fun, tho.

Crackdown 1 was a lot of fun back in the day, but I only every played a little bit of 2. I continue to hear that 3 isn't that great, which is disappointing. 

 

 

 

I wanted to get the special edition of DMC5, but in the end I decided not to. I'm still not sure how I feel about them getting rid of the statue upgrade and replacing it with a scooby-doo van, but we'll see how it goes.

Hit me up if ya'll play Apex.

No Apex for me, but I hear some pretty good things about it.

 

 

I finally played the DMC5 demo. Good stuff. Only got an "A" rank tho, so I need to step up my game a bit before it comes out. I still want to replay 3 & 4, so hopefully I'll have time before 5 comes out.

 

Almost done with Claire's playthru in RE2 (at the lab). I like Leon's story better, but its all good.

I've finally managed to defeat Leon's story in RE2.  Started up Claire immediately after the credits. Awesome game ya'll. After RE 6 & 7, I was really loosing my love for the series, but the remake has reminded me about everything that I loved about these games. Can't wait for the inevitable RE3 remake.

Skies of Arcadia was awesome. Those ship battles were great.

 

 

I'm only about 10 hours into Tales of Vesperia. Still not sold on it being the greatest Tales game, but its been good so far. I really like the characters, especially Patty.

Hmm...play more DMC2 with Lucia or go on to DMC3? Such a difficult decision.... :-k  :roll:

 

 

 

I still wish they had released a physical version of the DMC4 PS4 remake here in the US. I don't really want to import the asian version.

Dang, the story in DMC2 is garbage.
