@Dietsoap Well it is not that simple. There are many different reasons for liking a game. If you are a old School Re Fan like myself that felt the old forumula was just perfect RE 4 is an Insult at every Level. It has Nothing to with Re Story wise it is not scary anymore and it is just a shooter. The new Gameplay cannot be blamed for that though. in 2008 EA of all People showed with Dead Space how to make a over the shoulder Horror game Right. It had the same Gameplay Elements as Resident Evil 4 but was way more scarier and not cringy as hell . But that is common Problem for japanese Devs. they lose their Focus way to easy. Both Mikami and Kojima had a few good ideas in the ancient past and then they lost their mind and overthrow everything that made their games great in the first place. Mikami did that with RE 4 and Kojima with MGS 5. That is another reason why I really like Yu-San. Even after a long abesence he still managed it to make Shenmue 3 look and feel like Shenmue. That is Incredible.

But that is just my opinion. If you did not like the old RE Formula that much RE 4 could be the perfect game for you.

Welp I started up both Atelier Ryza and Ryza 2 on Switch. Had tried the first one pretty briefly on PS4 until I found out about the censorship so was glad to be able to get them here instead. Nay thing is now I’m just excited to jump into the sequel instead where lots of stuff is improved instead of playing them in order. Maybe I’ll just take turns doing sessions of each lol

Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown -- getting my ass handed to me way more than not, but having fun trying to learn it proper. Made it to 8th Dan in ranks online. It has taken my usual spot of Tekken 7 for now.

Grand Theft Auto V -- I had a real itch to go back to GTA V and have another replay on PC for whatever reason. The more I revisit this game, the more I like it. I really like the dynamic of Trevor and Michael. Franklin I could leave, but Trevor and Michael really do make this game for me. I don't know, just had an urge to go back to it for another play through of the story.

Waiting for Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart to drop this week as well....

I picked up Red Dead Redemption 2 in the Epic sale the other day.

First time trying a Red Dead game, but it seems like fun from what I've played so far. Can definitely see it getting its hooks into me once I get into it properly.

my only complaint about red dead 2 is that, for me..the game felt too long (google says it's 48+ hours). otherwise it's quite fun.

I never finished Red Dead 2. I was enjoying it but just never got around to finishing it...I think something else came out and took my attention around that time. (I think it was Spider-man or something like that?)

I've started up Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart. Looks great! Plays like Ratchet and Clank...all I could really ask for from it.

Ninja Gaiden Master Collection. Just put away Sigma 1 about 70% of the way through story mode. Moving on to Sigma 2 to see if it's better. Mostly excited about Razors Edge which will be next.

PSO2, putting the finishing touches on RE8 (I have 100%ed it, but my RE.net is still missing a few things, like maxed out weapons and 100% story completion since I haven't beaten it on Hardcore yet), and playing an indie Metroidvania called Fearmonium. It's pretty solid, and the in-game sprites are wonderful, just the right amount of cute and cartoony and creepy.

Eagerly awaiting the Great Ace Attorney Chronicles and Legend of Mana!

I'M HERE TO KILL CHAOS! Or in other words, I played the demo for Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origins. I'm not the biggest fan of Souls-like combat and I think this game has some of the same issues I have with Souls-like combat in general.

Sometimes its too janky for its own good and super annoying when fighting multiple enemies because of how janky it is....BUT, I will say, I actually kind of enjoyed this demo more than I thought I would. I wish the combat was more Ninja Gaiden and less Souls-like but what can you do? At least Team Ninja make a fun varient of Souls-like combat, I guess.

Also, either the demo is lenient or the game is just easier in general than most Souls games. Granted, you do at least have a difficulty option out of the gate and I did go with Normal because I'm admittedly shit at Souls-like games. But I didn't find this demo all that hard to beat. It was surprisingly easier than expected. Maye it's because you can switch out jobs on the fly given you instant access to Mage powers that made this seem easier to me. It was much easier to sometimes stand at a distance and throw out mage powers on certain enemies.

I don't know, the demo did leave me interested to maybe check out more of this...but yeah, I just wish it wasn't the janky Souls-like combat. Unpopular opinion, but I really don't like the jank of Souls combat in general.
