Lets have a conversation! I want to know what games everyone has been playing lately and I’ll do the same.
I’ve been in Playstation heaven the last month. It started with Spider-man and I went on to complete God of War, Bloodborne, and Persona 5. You can click on any of those links for my detailed thoughts on each game. I’m currently working on my Persona 5 review. Persona 5 is actually my favorite Playstation game right now. Yes, it beat Bloodborne. After Persona 5 I, finally, started playing Dragon Quest XI and I instantly fell in love with it. I’m also playing the crap out of Soul Calibur VI and it’s making a serious case for game of the year right now. It’s fantastic and I only have two problems with it right now, but I’ll save that for my review.
Dragon Quest XI is great. It’s really old school though. That might turn some people off, but I’ve been playing this series for years and it doesn’t bother me. I do wish that they would come up with a better soundtrack by now. Would it kill them to make a game without the terrible orchestration. The overworld music is particularly bad and makes exploring almost painful. A good soundtrack can make or a break a game and it definitely breaks this one. None of the music that plays matches what’s going on in the game. If I’m exploring a swamp or cave the music that plays in the back is really cheerful and loud. I would prefer total silence so I could enjoy the ambient sounds in the back. I love everything else about the game and it’s definitely one of the best games I’ve played this year. I’m about 30 hours in and I just got two new party members. My entire team is almost level 30.
Soul Calibur VI is amazing. The soundtrack, roster, stages, and graphics are amazing. I’m still pissed that Hilde isn’t in the game, but I’m sure she’ll be paid DLC at some point in time. I don’t really care about the 2B announcement since I don’t like Nier: Automata. I can go without her and I would’ve preferred someone like Kratos or Noctis. I think both of them would have been a perfect fit. I’ve played through the main story mode, a bunch of characters personal story, and I’ve put an insane amount of time in the Libra of Soul mode. I haven’t touched multiplayer much because I’m trying to get through all of the single player content and there is a LOT of single player content here. I’m in love and I want to play this game forever.
The third game I, briefly, played is The Evil Within 2. I borrowed my brother’s copy on the PS4 and quit about 45 minutes later. I didn’t enjoy it on console. I own the first Evil Within on PC and I really enjoyed it there and I plan on buying the second one on it too. I just didn’t like the controls and stiff camera. This is a game that I’ll be saving for PC so I can’t really comment much on it.
The fourth game I played is my favorite game. Skyrim. I’m not going to write much about it since I already wrote about it. You can find my thoughts on that here.
And that’s it. That’s all I’ve been playing. Most of my time has gone to Dragon Quest XI and Soul Calibur VI. What you been playing? Anything new? Something old? Lets talk about it!
