-NEW- Currently Playing Game Thread' Hyper Turbo: Get Juicy w/Dem Deets


#1

Welcome to the New Currently Playing Game Thread due to the old one auto closing after 10K posts.


I finally started playing Splatoon 2. Since plenty of players have been playing for almost a year, I have a lot of catching up to do. Thankfully my time spent with the original Splatoon helped a lot. Having said that, all the new weapons and sub weapons definitely changes things up considerably. That new umbrealla weapon is nasty to go up against in capable hands and I’m having a tough time against Splat Duely users. With a few exceptions, lots of the newer stages seem smaller, leading to much faster shootouts. Overall, I’m liking the game but I feel my enjoyment is a bit hampered since I’m still adjusting to all the new stuff.

the splat duelys are so good because you get access to a dodge roll. iirc thats the only weapon that dos that.

Im balls deep in Monster Hunter World, building two character despite eveyone telling me not to haha. Both are at end game high rank using the charge blade and the switch ax.

Also been playing Fortnight with my brothers. Not really my kind of game, but its fun to spend time with my bros playing games like the good old days so i deal with it. Fortnights fun but i do have issues with it, building is too good imo just toss up a wall anywhere and if you build well enough not much anyone can do about it. Also in typical Epic Games fashion Shotguns rule the roost big time. But its still fun over all

Only other thing i have been playing is Psyvsriar on my Dreamcast. Games a ton of fun and the risk reward scoring system is adrenalin boosting.

Monster Hunter: World
Currently running 3 solo-weapon files: Lance, Bow, and Dual Blades.
The first two are mainstays while the third is mostly out of random interest.
Kinda wish there were more save files so that I can solo-run some other weapons.
If I didn’t run DB, I probably would’ve run one of the following HBG/LBG, IG, CB.

Kulve Taroth Siege was interesting.
Sometimes ran rounds/sets with some pretty capable hunters/groups, so that was nice.
Kulve Weapon reward rates could’ve been better, I think.
Kinda sucks doing a (completion) run and not getting a specific weapon type/class reward, relative to what you are using at the time.

Muramasa Rebirth
Finished playing through Genroku Legends recently.
The individual stories were pretty interesting, particularly some of the second endings.
Kinda sucked having to re-tread through all the older areas for all the extra stuff, though.
A follow-up game with some of the chars featured in the second endings would be interesting to see:

Sayo, the siblings, Dengoro

Recently got to the end game.of Hollow Knight. I was stuck on The Watcher Knight for a while but finally got em today. Aside from the last two bosses (And the dlcs) I think the only boss fight I have left is the one in the bee hive.

Cloth is a bro.

Hollow Knight: I got axed in an area that I don’t have the map to yet and visibility is trash. I knew I should have gotten that torch. Killing the Shade an reclaiming my moola is easy. But getting out of that place has proven difficult.

Mega Man 11: I’m on my second play through of this game and still loving it. The weapons are a blast to use and the level design is far less obnoxious like MM9. I was not a fan of spikes in just about every single level in that game. I was watching some time trial replays and the stuff players are doing after only a week is CRAZY.

You’re in Deepnest huh?

Man the DLC episodes are so good. The only one I wasn’t super into was the farmer one, but I love that all the characters had unique systems that made them really different from both the main game characters and each other. I think Okoi was my favorite though

Like I posted in the General VG thread, I finished Spider-Man recently and enjoyed it immensely. Some things early on threw me off, such as attacks only hitting one person at a time, which kicked my ass for crowd control. At one point I was 2 for 100 against the Demons early on and would get my ass kicked by drug dealers on roof tops.

The problems were on my end as I wasn’t using the tool set I had at the time and was still coming to grips with some of my moves (Air Dodge for instance). I’m also not one to use items are secondary weapons until MUCH later when playing games. Once I focused more on that I was mauling the enemies. The bosses I never had much trouble with, but the regular enemies would kick my ass when I tried ‘winging it’ haha.

I’ll be replaying this game for a long time to come.

The two cons for in this game were the stealh sections later on in the game when the story just got crazy. I just wanted to FIGHT. The second being, New York doesn’t interest me much. The Avengers builiding is awesome, but a lot of places were…eh. I spent most time swinging and wall running. The few times I went of foot, didn’t do much for me, unless I was high-fiving people. This became apparent last night when I through in Kiwami 2. Seeing Kamurocho at night in the Dragon Engine will never not be amazing.

So now I’m back on Kiwami 2. I love the more dense areas to explore and and have more fun doing it. Kiwami 2 really excels in this area in that you can use the buildings as short cuts to go through different parts of Kamurocho without having to fight. Felt like home for me when I started the game up. I’ve been upgrading abilities and waited on Attack Level and damage boosts for Light and Heavy attacks. Decided to say fuck it and now I’m a wrecking ball, haha.

Man in Black was on some FUCKING BULLSHIT though. I have a save for that fight specifically beacuse it feels broken as all hell. I’ll keep at it to see if it is or not.

I saw HKDJ (HaoKuaiDeJian) is playing Bayonetta, DmC and DMC4SE. They have a Twitch channel and everytime I see this person play Bayo, I tell myself “Why wasn’t I doing that?!” or “I didn’t think of that?!”

I still have Megaman 11, Sonic, Sonic Mania Plus, Thunder Force IV and Fist of the North Star. I’ll type more on those later. Sorry for the wall of text.

Hmmm. How’d you know? It sounds like you speak from experience.
