    I had more fun playing action games like Splatterhouse and Force Unleashed II than I did vanilla DmC.

    Have you played Splatterhouse any time recently? Just wondering because I loved those games growing up but recently played it on RetroPie and it has not aged well at all. It's pretty f'ing bad lol.

    That 2D beat-em-up that came with GameStop preorders of Final Fantasy XV was okay. I go back to it sometimes. I really like the combo system and the way you can combo into and out of assists. Cid assist was OP as fuck, though.

    Splatterhouse 1 & 2 controls are very stiff so aging like shit is to be expected. Splatterhouse 3 aged better since it's more like Streets of Rage compared to the other games. The remake from 2010 is fun if you can get it for cheap.

    I wouldn't mind another Spike Out, but I guess that's what Yakuza is for? Checking CAG for Black Friday deals and not seeing anything on the PS4 Pro thus far.... :(

    Splatterhouse remake was amazing. One of my fave non-FGs of the PS360 era.

    Yakuza is sexist. Spikeout is better.

    It is but the Yakuza franchise is the romanticism of Japanese bro culture with partial organized crime mixed in.

    It sucks that Soul Calibur is dead right now. Artorias would fit in so well as a guest character.

    Bastards at Namco keep rolling snake eyes on good franchises. Given the shit they did to royally fuck up Soul Calibur V the franchise is dead. Damn shame given how amazing Soul Blade, Soul Calibur, Soul Calibur II, and Soul Calibur III: Arcade Edition were.

    P.S. Dynamite Cop is better than both, but I would be lying if I said that I played a better 3D beat 'em up than Yakuza 5.

    I know, just doesn't make sense to me why they'd force you to drive that slow. It's not like having the car be faster would make Chocobos useless since there's a lot of places the car can't get to...

    Oh well. Guess the Chocobo theme is gonna be stuck in my head for a while longer.

    Shadow of War...

    sheeeeit, I didn't notice until recently that you can still stealth-kill while mounted on a caregor... that's odd but ok. Previously when I rode into battle on a caragor like He-Man riding battlecat, I just always figured that's when you've stopped caring about sneaking around. The cool thing is that once you get off the caragor, it's still there to fight alongside you....loyal to the end. You can even have them howl to summon other caragors.

    I hunted my old pal "Amug the Ruined" a little while ago...it would turn out to be our final battle. He was only level 19 at this point...stood no chance. I didn't bother recruiting him...this pitiful creature had gone completely insane at this point, apparently. If he manages to come back from the dead like some of the others...maybe that might earn him a spot in my legion.

    Interesting that you mention this.

    Back when Dragon's Dogma was first released, I was hoping that, alongside the Souls games, it would signal a wave of new Japanese action RPGs/dungeon crawlers rooted in dark fantasy in contrast to the typical JRPG fair. Sadly, this this hasn't really come to pass and the Souls games instead went on to create their own subgenre based more on the game's mechanics (stamina combat), than themes and setting.

    Probably because they knew they couldn't top XCX's mechs so they figured "fuck it...."

    I love mega man 2 but I also enjoy it when people critique it without nostalgia goggles. I feel the same way for Sonic 2 or any other classic game I enjoy.
