What were the last video games you played?

  • Hockey videogames have always been best when they've been 3-on-3. I still maintain that the first two games of the "NHL Hitz" series was the most fun hockey game series ever (and then they went and spoiled it all by doing something stupid like going 5-on-5), and I keep on going back to "3 on 3 NHL Arcade" on my PS3 for quick fixes of hockey videogaming.

    Oh. I was expecting it to be more like Threes! mode and I was wondering how that would work.

    After playing a bunch of interactive novels this week, I finally got in the mood for Life is Strange: Before the Storm. Can't say I was invested as I was in the original, but it's still (probably) in my top 5 games for the year, based on the few other entries I have on that list. It was still enjoyable, and the backtalk feature was interesting at least, but I have issues with the pacing (considering I'm supposed to buy that it takes place in like, 5 days) and Chloe/Rachel is not as interesting a dichotomy to me as Chloe/Max, although the game did add some weight to the original for reasons I won't mention. 8/10, I guess.

    I'm pretty sure it's only supposed to take place over three days, even (epilogue excepted, and I suppose the prologue takes place the evening before Day 1); like the original Life is Strange, each episode is roughly one day.

    I thought the Backtalk mechanic was okay at first, but I really liked how it was used in the last episode, so I appreciated the buildup to that.

    But yes, story is king in this game, and I thoroughly enjoyed the story (as I previously declared).

    Ah, fair enough. They keep mentioning a "Few days" in episode 3, so I just assumed 3-5, which seems way too fast, even if the original was 5 days too. I could buy Chloe and Max reconciling over 5 days, rather than a completely new relationship, but that might just be me. The story was pretty decent though.

    It's not like she didn't know who Rachel was before the story, it's just that the Firewalk concert that starts the game made her an immediately accessible person. Given that the original LiS established that Rachel was generally well-respected around the school by students and faculty alike, and the fact that Chloe has abandonment issues (as established in-game), and that they're teenagers, I don't think it's the least realistic thing to happen in the game.

    Also, I got something in my ending that apparently YouTubers created walkthroughs for. Kinda surprised by that.

    Ah, that's fair. I didn't think about it like that. Assuming I know what you're referring to with the end point, if it's during the ending montage, the game stats say that only 1 in 10 got that particular event.

    I played Doki Doki Literature Club yesterday. TAKE ITS WARNINGS SERIOUSLY. THAT ISH CRAY.

    Also it's a fantastic experience and I sprang for the "fan pack" when I was done.
