Oh and speaking of Platinum games, I beat Astral Chain yesterday. While initially the game didn't feel that amazing to me, the combat really expanded after a few chapters, and I overall really enjoyed it. I recommend checking it out

I beat it just last week too. I liked it alot, reminds me alot of like Nier Automata x Evangelion.

 

I also thought the game initially dragged on, got amazing towards the middle, then started to drag on again towards the end. But overall, the gameplay is very smooth and I love the amount of detail put into the different combination attacks.

 

The one complaint I have though is that the game and promotional material seems to emphasize the male protagonist being the true one, but I actually liked playing the female protag more.

Saw some talk about rhythm games a few days back. I've been playing some DJ Max Respect, and its one of the best rhythm games I ever played, the aesthetics are phenomenal. I highly recommend it.

 

On sale for $17.49 for 2 more weeks.

I'm with this guy. I think the game is pretty good. The I'm like 6 hours in and I'm liking it. The added dynamics of actually getting to your destination really masks the delivery boy aspect, which so far is pretty much blown out of proportion imo.

The story so far I like. The cross over to thy other side is a pretty good storyline. I don't regret purchasing day one. Haven't taken it out.

The game gets like 50x better once you have access to other player's vehicles and player-made highways. I get the feeling that when some reviewers played it, the community wasn't anywhere near as large, so they didn't have access to most player-made utilities. They probably ended up having to save up resources to build what little they could, or walk around the entire game. For me, some of these deserts have so much contraptions now they look like cities.

Picked up the Death Stranding CE, this thing is huge, the contents look pretty well made. Only thing that bothers me is the handle on the case isn't fold-able. Everything is like a 1:1 scale prop from the game, and reminds me of the the 1:1 scale Bionic arm from MGSV CE. 

 

It makes me want to ask a question, do you guys prefer a good game with bad CE contents or a bad game (not this game but just in general) with good CE contents? Like is the quality of the game or the quality of the CE more important to you? By a bad CE, I guess something like that big ass Mirrors Edge Catalyst statue or the stupid Just Cause 3 grapple thing that just screams cheapy made plastic.

 

I posted some pictures of the Death Stranding CE in case you guys are on the verge of picking it up:

So the Date A Live CE from Iffy came in super early. I think this game is scheduled to be released on the 25th. 

 

As you can see, the CE contents are separate from the game and the pillow case with BRW on it. Makes sense since there is a PC version of the CE as well with no physical game.

 

Wonder if I can get the unboxing video down to 15 seconds.

I decided to make an unboxing video for Super Neptunia RPG CE as fast as possible, and it was so fast, I ended up being able to fit it all into a gif.

Also in video form with world's fastest commentary.

I used to actually listen to the music straight from the CDs for CEs (Persona 4, Blazblue, FFXIII-2, Catherine, etc.) when I had to drive 2 hours to my college dorm.

 

Then I started just ripping the songs off the CDs and playing the files on my phone.

 

Nowadays the laptop I have doesn't even have a CD drive anymore, so I haven't actually listened to a CD in a long while.

 

The commute to work and school is pretty long though, so maybe I should be hip and get a CD player...

Honestly, that is a pretty sad statement to make in 2019, a little more than a year off of the PS-friggin'-5.

 

That being said, CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

Look at the Best Buy product page for it...

The cutscenes look pretty good somehow...

 

But that's all they are willing to show... the box art and cutscene screen shots, no trailer or gameplay screenshots...

To the people asking about the Overwatch League Tokens before, stage 3 of the OWL just started, and it runs for a couple of weeks every Thursday to Sunday from around 6 to 10 pm EST.  3 tokens per every hour watched, and is tracked between different applications of Twitch. Also, I can confirm that anything you get, you get for both PC and console versions at the same time, same for the free Twitch lootboxes. 

 

 

Also, 2X XP weekend for Overwatch starts today, lasts until Monday.

I need to start watching the Overwatch League events to earn tokens. I want that new Mercy skin. When I looked up how earning tokens works I missed some live events by two days. I think the next chance to earn tokens is early June.

I still have my initial free 100 tokens. I need another 100 for the skin. I think I have to watch at least 34 hours of Overwatch League to get that. I doubt that they'll stream that much during the next event. Hopefully the OWL skins stay in the store for a while.

If you mean the OWL Allstars skins, the Mercy and Lucio ones, I think the last day to get them is today, since that event ends the 20th. 

 

I barely had enough to get the Mercy one, managed to get 256 over the Stage 2 OWL matches. Some advice is to watch the Allstars show since the tokens given out are 2x. Also, it works on mobile twitch app too, and it tracks continuously how much you watch, so just leave it on your phone while you do something else, or another tab on the computer.

I am supposing that you all would be the perfect people to ask this question...

What is the MOST JAPANESE / ASIAN game that you have come across, or would recommend?

The Yakuza series is probably the most Japanese game... I can't even think of anything more Japanese except maybe like Persona. 

 

It takes place in Japan, the characters are Japanese, they speak Japanese, they eat Japanese food, they fight with Japanese weapons, the story is Japanese-based... everything you can think of is Japanese except for Miracle Johnson.

Crystar is out August 27th PS4/Steam

 

First print runs contain an art book and swimsuit DLC. 

Thanks! Had no clue this game existed until now. Looks really cool too.

I forgot to chime in and say I recently played through RE2 remake. It was pretty good, especially being my 2nd RE game ever (7 was my first.) Did both Claire A and Leon B and it was a blast. Makes me wanna play the others now, or at least look forward to the RE3 remake.

 

Also saw Endgame and it was pretty damn crazy. Audience was clapping and hollering at every major thing that happened.

 

Playing MK11 now and the game is fun.
