Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

I have no problem with story. Too many cinemas can drag a Zelda game down. Unless they feature Groose or Midna.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

I might as well preach to the choir and say that I also really loved A Link Between Worlds. I beat the game and got all the heart containers and "nice" items, but there's still space for one additional mystery item. I'm guessing I'll get it from either: (1) completing all the shadow Link challenges, or (2) beating the game in Hero mode. (If you know how to get it, please don't tell me. :3)

Speaking of Hero mode, I wish they would make that option available from the beginning. I don't really want to play through again if greater enemy damage is the only difference, but would have loved a greater challenge the first time around.

Edit: actually, it would be pretty cool if games were better at dynamically adjusting their difficulty based on your performance. If standardized tests can do it, why not games?

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

Because then people complain about the game having the same difficulty all the way through, a la Oblivion.

I have a friend that refuses to buy the game new because he only wants to play it on hero mode. So he wants to buy a completed copy.

I wonder how many Zelda nerds feel this way?

I mean the game IS ridiculously easy the first time through.

Good idea. Actually a lot of Nintendo games could benefit from difficulty settings. I hate when Mario Kart punishes skill with bad items and rewards lack of skill with good items. Smash Bros Brawl alienated some competitive players because Nintendo purposely dumbed things down from Melee. Etc.

I got AssCreed 4 off Amazon for 50% off, been playing through it. Sailing really adds a whole new dynamic to it, a hell of a lot better than AC3.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

I finally started playing The Last Of Us -- or the best current arguement for AAA game development.

Great prologue chapter--intro with docks is kinda bland but really excited to see where it all goes.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

I beat Octodad 2 and it was a lot of fun, if a bit short and buggy at times. I think my next indie game I'll be playing is Kentucky Route Zero.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

I'm still on Diablo. Nearly done with Act 3 using my alt (a Demon Hunter) on Master V difficulty (which is the equivalent of the highest enemy level difficulty setting on PC). She's such a badass that Master III was not a challenge. And difficulty goes from Easy, Normal, Hard, and then Master I through Master V.

I'm thinking of making her my main instead of my monk.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

I like The Last Of Us. A lot. I love the direction behind its vocal work. I love the characters introduced. I love the promise of a crazy ass climax it has to hold. I love the variety of locales! Its pacing is pretty much perfect, it always gives you something to do. I mentioned restraint in another thread just now, I like how there's restraint in this game. I can walk into an area, see a bunch of potential chest high walls and what happens? Nothing. No drawn out endless gun fights. And the fights that are there give you arenas designed well enough that you can typically size up the place and plan ahead a bit (alright I'll throw a nail bomb that way and then I can...) The game knows when to let you breath, and where to lead you for the most part.

But, man. **** partner AI. We still have work to do in this field. Ellie will climb ladders when I walk past t hem despite the fact that I need to go somewhere else with that same ladder, she'll be in the way in chokepoints when I'm trying to run from combat. There are choppy partner AI related animations and points where I leave her behind and she just pops up after (very Friday the 13th) Its not a cardinal sin, but it does pull me out of the experience a lot, which is a bummer.

I have to make the comparison because I said playing this game would likely change my opinion of the other game; but I actually think that so far I liked Tomb Raider '13 better than this game. That's not to take away from Last Of Us, and I still need to finish it and I think the game will show me many more tricks before the end. People complain about the narrative dissonance and **** in that game, but is it really anymore than "HEY BOOKER HERE'S SOME CASH" after something big happens and the first kill on game load always eliciting the same "holy ****, Joel"? I think TR kind of knew what it wanted to be and focused on it just a touch more. And very wisely kept partner AI out.

That said, TLOU is a game I want to experience again. Tomb Raider was a one and done.

I dunno, I do love both games~

Point the first: I dunno how far along you are, but there were two arenas in the game that I struggled with for longer than I felt they should have taken, and both of them were because of the difficulty spiking so drastically on account of how the game really doesn't reward that style of play only to shoehorn the style of play in. I ended up having to do a very specific set of actions in the second one, in a very particular order, timed just right, in order to live through the damn thing. Otherwise I'd just get whittled down bit by bit while I was frantically scrambling around, or my AI partner would die while I was kiting things.

Point the second: I remember one or two places where partner AI was a pain, but for the most part Ellie and the other people you have following along are non-intrusive to the stealth experience, even when they should be. I agree that it pulls you out of the experience, which is unfortunate.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

To your point one, I mentioned this is the TLoU thread, but the *** SPOILERS ***
boss fight in the school
*** END SPOILERS ***
did take me completely out of the experience. I think I audibly ugh-ed when I saw what was being set up, because now I was playing a game again, with all the same game design rules and mechanics that go along with that. Other than a very, very minor annoyance at the "game-y" elements of the ladders and such, the rest of the game felt so seamless, like I was not thinking about game design at all. It was an experience. But the spoilered stuff above made me feel like I was playing a standard third person action game again. Ugh.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

Does nothing like that happen again? Cause I'm already past that point and I didn't think it was bad or anything but yeah, looking back on it I'm surprised I didn't notice how typical it was.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

It's a beautiful game. One of my top 10 of all time.

But I sold my copy. Can someone hurry up and beat the DLC and tell me if it's worth repurchasing the game for it?
