Title: Official Recent Game Happenings / Progress Thread
Post by: BLUEVOODU on March 02, 2018, 12:21:22 AM
fhqwhgads started a thread of this type - figured it was time to bring it back.

This thread is for game progress made.  Add to it at any point... updating any progress you made in any game.


I finally 100% beat the Gondor level in Lego Lord of the Rings - PS Vita.

Post it up!

92% of the way through Dying Light. Important note: it's friggin hard from the start and doesn't get much easier.

Also, have zero clue what the campaign is about since Spartan likes to skip all the cutscenes haha.

I'm on Balmung, which they had recently just opened again after being closed since the release of Stormblood. I'm not sure if it's still open now, at least for new character creation, but I think transfers can still be made if you already have a character on another server (although you do have to pay to transfer).

I have a level 35 alt on the Jenova server but the people I was playing with there stopped playing.

Yes he does lol... he also rushes everything in Dying Light so it's hard to loot without backup there.

Played Super Bomberman R on the switch. Made some progress in the single player campaign. Interesting how they 'evolved' the cut scenes over time.   But playing multiple is super fun.

Paying to transfer is worth it though if I can actually play with people...  I really like this game but don't like at least not having other people to talk to while playing.

Yeah same. My FC is very active but we mostly use Discord to talk so the in-game chat is not as active, except for the one guy who can't get his mic to ever work properly so he replies in the game. And Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and sometimes Saturday nights are when most of us are online.

As you grow into an older gamer there is one thing to keep in mind. And that is you must keep a sense of humor and be able to laugh at yourself.  ::)

I received a new copy of Final Fantasy type-O HD this week, ordered it. I popped it in my Xbox One yesterday afternoon to load up and update, etc. I played it a while last night, late evening. Not sure I like the battle system. I was becoming a bit frustrated with it. Story and setting that you are introduced to, I can get into that.  I like the mood the environment and graphics gives you. I let the console run while I watched something, so that it would complete the download. I was getting ready for bed deciding to  retrieve the game form the console. It wouldn't come out!!! It was stuck!! I tried and tried but nothing would work!! I went to bed. When I woke this morning, day off and such, I started watching youtube videos on how to retrieve a stuck disc. I have been trying all morning and could not get anything to come out. I just happened to pick up the game case opening it and there was the game. Nothing was in the Xbox One.  :o

I could not remember taking it out. What was supposed to be a relaxing morning turned into a stressful time for nothing!!! I still cannot remember doing this. I was tired from getting up and going int to work at 3:00Am. But surely not that tired.

LOL

Downloaded PUBG Mobile. Pretty fun as well. I feel better at it than I think I am because I think they add several bots into your early rounds, but it's very similar to the actual game.

We should play @BLUEVOODU

I got through the Call of Duty WW2 Campaign. Very satisfying, but a little too easy on regular. Only one part took more than a try or two. I mist tons of mementos and heroic acts but I feel like they'd be easy to get on regular if someone was so inclined. I was rushing through because my son was trying to finish first.

@mastermario I will try to download it by tonight... see how PUBG Mobile is lol.

@retro junkie I've always wondered how that Spyro games played... I think I tried one for the PSX a long time ago... but didn't do much with it.

@targetrasp - so is this game worth it to buy?  I had serious reservations.... we should create a topic on this game and visit it.
* if you have it on PS4... maybe I'll try to buy that version and we can play multiplayer at some point.  THOUGH we still need to hit up Diablo 3... the itch that needs to be scratched again.

Looks like I updated the wrong thread with the following:

For Me:
Lego Hobbit - PlayStation Vita.  This game is organized a bit different... so I'm trying to get used to it.  I see to have completed 3 sections / trials / whatever you want to call it of 1 level.   I plan to write some kind of reviews on the Lego games as some point.

This particular game for the GB SP plays totally different from the others on the system. Eternal Night is a 2D side scroller. All of the others on the system are 3/4 overhead view. This game is excellent. Highly recommended if you are into side scrollers. You gain special moves when you find them in the levels. Your Spyro develops as you gain those moves.

I might have to look for those games as well - feel free to post up if you have any more information on those  ;D

I played Tetris Ultimate - Ps Vita.... I was trying to resurrect memories of Tetris DS.  Didn't work. I'll write a little review on this soon.

Also, Lego Hobbit for the Vita... made a little more progress.  I've said it before... it's different than other Lego games.

In FFXIV I just got two more Eureka relic weapons finished (red mage and samurai).

In Lightning Returns I'm currently on day 7? Or maybe 8. I'm trying to get sidequests done since I'm stuck a bit on a few of the bosses.

I started making progress on Metroid Samus Returns last night... before I passed out... long days right now.

I'll make a topic on it... the game insert is pretty cool.  It has the original Gameboy cover on 1 side (high quality too)... and the new cover on the other side.

The motion of the game is a little different from other Metroid games.  It doesn't seem as smooth to my eyes.  Again... more information on that as I play more and eventually create a topic on the game and play through.

Finished Ghosts a few minutes ago and just realized MW2 and MW3 are not backwards compatible on the xbone. Trying to decide if I want to dig out the 360 or start up xcom or Kameo.


Now I remember why I preferred the 360 over the ps3... The achievement system is so much more satisfying then the ps3's trophies.

I started playing Fortnite for the first time tonight. It's alright. Still like PUBG better right now but I'll give it a good chance to change my mind. I feel like the learning curve is greater with Fortnight with all of the structure building and whatnot.

@BLUEVOODU Not long. Less than 10 hours I'd say. I played about 3-4 hours this past Saturday and went from 17 to 24 and then finished up to 25 on Sunday.

You get an exp bonus of I believe 20% for playing in a "group" (can just be one person) and other bonuses for wins, kills, and consecutive games played so you can get there really fast if you're in a good team.

@retro junkie How does that stack against other Fire Emblems?  Might be cool to have a Fire Emblem topic.


I've been somewhat absent from gaming lately.  I've played a few rounds of FortNite.

FINALLY made decent progress in Raiden V for the PS4.  I beat the game... and now have 33-43% of all trophies (don't remember the number).   I'm going to create an updated topic on this game.  It's a lot of fun - if you like the top scroller style shooter (Shmups).  I also beat the game with all S routes.

@retro junkie How does that stack against other Fire Emblems?  Might be cool to have a Fire Emblem topic.

It is basically built around the over-the-top-powerful Dynasty Warriors-style moves in its battle system. It is still RPG underneath with the strategy. I would have to go back a way to recall any Fire Emblem game I've played, might have been GBA. My memory is foggy. I go for the hack in slash of Dynasty Warriors gameplay so I am thrilled with it. Diehard Fire Emblem purist might be put off.

I made more progress in Raiden V.    I rage quit last night though... hard.   I was last stage... and was going to get the achievement for using the same main gun the entire run.     NOPE....    I ran into a lot of fire... took the hits to miss the main weapon power up... but it happened to slide down my way as my craft spun... and I got the power up JUST AS IT TURNED RED FROM PURPLE.   So many rages, precious.

@retro junkie I think that sounds pretty interesting... wish I had a bit more time to try some of these games.


Anyone else make progress on games?   @Baker_Beezy @Strubes @targetrasp @Mai Valentine @Polygon @Aya-Kun ?

@Mai Valentine - The Last of Us is so good. @SpartanEvolved and I used to play the online back on Ps3.  It was pretty cool.  We definitely need a Last Of Us topic at some point.

@Strubes I have that game... I just haven't played it yet.  It looks to be a blast.  I have the 1st game too... can't say I've broke 2 min on it.  Gaming ADD hits hard....

LOL... hoping to get a few rounds of PSO with @mastermario (cough cough).  Hoping to install tonight.

@targetrasp ... I need Breath of the Wild.  I need more time 1st... but this is very high up on my list to buy.  The wants... the wants.  Surprised we don't have a Breath of the Wild topic.

OO..... Diablo 3 on the PS3 is pretty good.  Outside the PC version, I'll get the Switch version.

I'd really like to get everyone playing.  The last few times I've tried... I  have stuff happen where I cannot play.  This should all pan out in the next month.

I made more progress in Super Bomberman R on the switch.  It's a really fun game.

I'm entering the last mission in Spider-man. This game is MUCH longer than I was anticipating. The story has been fantastic. It let's you know when you're going to enter the last mission so you can upgrade beforehand which I think is really nice.

Someone for some insane reason took the Final Fantasy 7 PS1 game and made it into an RPG originally for the Famicom. This one that I am playing has the English patch. I think it was hacked from Final Fantasy games originally made for the NES. The neat part about it is that it contains the whole story of the Final Fantasy game. Graphics resemble the FF7 game also, as much as they can in an 8-bit sort of way. So far I have gotten past the point where we set the bomb in the reactor. The attacks are brutal. I have started to run from the ones that the game will let me.

@Strubes Your Playstation Rank just keeps exploding lol.  ;D  I need to platinum a game again.. it's been awhile since my last one.  I haven't platinumed many.  What's annoying is you cannot platinum certain games anymore because it was dependent on online features that no longer exist.   I'm going to start a topic on this.

What progress have you made @mastermario ?   Also, you should get Diablo 3 and play with us.

Other Progress I made:
1.)  Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 - Black out... made it to level 13 or 14 and a tier that's like double that now.  Having a hard time keeping my KD up right now.  Frustrating lol.  I'll hit many rounds of 1-3 kills ... then go 9 rounds of getting smacked around.
2.)  We made it further in Lego The Movie Video Game

I let my roommate borrow my PS4 and tv for Fallout 76 so I'm mostly just on my laptop now, which means FFXIV is what I've been playing most recently. We're in between patches right now and everyone's busy with the holidays so it's in a bit of a lull but I've been using the time to do stuff I wouldn't normally do, like level my crafting classes. The next patch will introduce Blue Mage and start the story leading up to the next expansion, so I'm looking forward to that.

I have went completely through it and now I am working on the special challenge stages that you open up. I would say that the game is not that difficult with just enough puzzle element figuring out how to get through the stages and defeat the bosses. Batman can upgrade his arsenal with the coins you collect through the stages. (Yeah I know, he is supposed to own this stuff already.) You team up with a Brave and Bold hero with abilities you will need to get through each particular stage. You switch up using the touch screen, tag team wrestling style. There is also a special move using both. Did I just review this game?  ::)

I just finished another playthrough on Resident Evil 4. I haven't done a Professional run on Steam so I went ahead and did that this week. Might start RE5 next.

@Mai Valentine - Would your roommate be interested in joining our forums?  We'd love to have them join  ;D  I bought Fall Out 76 for the PlayStation 4 on a Cyber Monday deal.  FFXIV sounds like it would be fun... I wish I had the time to do a game like that.  Between my game ADD and games like COD BLOPS4, Titanfall 2, and Diablo 3... there's just not a lot to go around.

Speaking of Fall Out 76 - check out the Fall Out 76 Crazy Limited Edition Guide (https://www.chickendinnergaming.com/forum/index.php?topic=479.0)

@CreepinDeth What is a professional run?  I really haven't played Resident Evil 4 more than tries.  I know... bad BV.

@retro junkie lol... I don't remember that game either. would you recommend it?

I played a bunch of Titanfall 2 on PlayStation 4 (https://www.chickendinnergaming.com/forum/index.php?topic=445.0).  There was actually 4000 people online over the weekend.  I love getting into games fast.  I went from level 20 or 21 to over 30.

Yep, bad BV!

Professional is the hardest difficulty in the game. I recommend this game even in lower difficulty settings. It's the greatest game of all time!

@retro junkie lol... I don't remember that game either. would you recommend it?

If you like adventurish, final fightish, and old school pattern bosses, with a sort-of storyline, you might get a thrill out of the game. Once you beat the game you have all the special stages that you opened up to finish. This is a one or two nighter, depends how you pace yourself in the game. The game gave me a satisfying Batman mini game feel. The animation is very good. It might be better than the cartoon, never watched Brave and Bold series.

If you are itching for a quick DS game I would recommend it. I think there is not enough here to motivate most gamers to come back to, once you have unlocked everything, unless you are a Batman fan. Definitely fan based. It will be one of those games that I will return to, just to use the Batman character to beat up some bad guys. It is a pretty cheap pickup on eBay.

Young 8, 9, or 10 year old would play it to death.

@CreepinDeth - I really need to play through it.  It's been long enough... I believe I have it in my steam list too  :o   Greatest game of all time??

@retro junkie Those can be fun at times.  I really liked Star Wars Episode 3 on the Nintendo DS - I think that was the official title.  Man... that was a lot of fun for a long time.  IT's been awhile though since I played it... I don't know if it held up.  There should be a post on that game in the future.

So... I made a little progress on iPad game - the Capitalist lol.  Besides that... I've been making progress on IT certification studies.  TRying to finish up 2 certs before EOY 2018.

I think I am now at level 37-38 on Titanfall 2 - PlayStation 4 (https://www.chickendinnergaming.com/forum/index.php?topic=445) online.  I had a lot of fun playing TTF2 with @targetrasp in Saturday Gaming (https://www.chickendinnergaming.com/forum/index.php?topic=519) before he was called away LOL.   We need to do that again soon.

Creepin… do you like Titanfall?  It would be cool to get you on this as well.  Titanfall 2 for the PlayStation 4 is like $7-8 shipped lol.  STill active (lower active but active) and fun.

exactly...I'm trying to get @SpartanEvolved to get into this as well.  He has the game lol.  It was good playing today @targetrasp … maybe we can hop on later tonight or tomorrow.  It is a very fast game to get into... and the attrition matches last about 15 min... so there's a great amount of play in addition to the low wait times.  Great title... it was released at a bad time and was left to the wayside.

I wonder if @Strubes has it as well.

@XFaKToRX posted on Discord that it's $6 right now …. I Think on PSN.  He's picking it up.    Hopefully we'll get him and @SpartanEvolved to join.   Mostly just looking for casual fun lol... it's a good time.

I have been playing a little of Diablo 3 on my PS3 this morning. I have had the game for months but just haven't sit down and tried it out. I had it on easy just to get the feel of the game. I am thinking that I have played the game before, but it was not 3, been a long time ago.

Also played Time & Eternity which is a manga style anime feel JRPG game. I got into it passed the intro and title screen, into the gameplay. I find it interesting. I have not played anything like this. I do like the battle system which you can stand at a distance or move up close, and dodge your enemy's attacks. You are limited as to where you can move during the battle. Up close hand to hand, at a distance you can use your rifle, you also have your helper. It is sort-of a romance story line, but  I either missed it or it has not explained why I am fighting monsters in my journey. I do know why I am on my journey.

Probably a bad time to start this at Christmas. I could easily become distracted.

Started going through Spider-Man for PS4. This game is really fun and feels so good when swinging around the city. I hope there's a sequel.

Spider-Man is good! I sat down for a solid 2 - 3 hours today and went through a decent portion of the game earlier today. If it wasn't for eyestrain I don't think I would have stopped playing.

I'm not Titanfalls biggest fan BUT it is fun, and worth the price of admission. Had I bought the game at launch for full price I would have been pissed.

Other than Titanfall I've been playing a lot of SPider-Man. Turning the combat difficulty up is really satisfying but that close quartered stuff with the crappy camera angles gets irritating.
Title: Re: Official Recent Game Happenings / Progress Thread
Post by: BLUEVOODU on January 02, 2019, 12:09:48 AM
Spiderman is a pretty good game.  I ran into the camera angle thing as well.

I paid for Titanfall 2 on PC... bought it at launch.  Other than the PC crowd dying off, I thought it was worth it.  I don't find many games with retail.  However, once the PC crowd died off due to bad release timing, I Was annoyed... a lot.  I loved the game and really wanted to play it more but couldn't get into online games.

That's why I love the PS4 version so much, we get into games fast.  The price at $6-15 is well worth it and there's a ton of great gameplay to be had.  You have to enjoy the Titanfall style though.

I made more progress on Rainbow Moon on The PlayStation Vita.   It took awhile to start making progress again in this game.  It's like you'll get periods of a lot of progress... then you won't for awhile and have to grind.  The other thing is.. it literally takes better items to advance... I mean Advance at all.   So... I made progress and now am stuck at another spot... probably for a year.

Made several level ups in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Black Out mode.  This is seriously my favorite Battle Royale game to date.

Lol no @targetrasp chickendinnergaming.com  wasn't meant to be any game centric. It was more of a play on the winner winner chicken dinner ... and site about winning.   But some of that stuff has strayed a bit.  Trying to figure out where from here right now... this place is here to stay and I've done what I've done to make sure what happened to the old won't be required with the new.

I played a bit of splatfest in  Splatoon 2 for the switch (https://www.chickendinnergaming.com/forum/index.php?topic=207.0).  I think my son accomplished max level. It was a lot of fun.

I picked up Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe today, probably only to go into the pile of back logged games for a few years

I beat the first Koopa Kid in Mario Deluxe and tried out Smash Bros... Not sure I'm going to like Smash but to be fair I wasn't in a fighting game kind of mood.

I have been really wanting to play Symphony of the Night or Rondo of Blood, may have to necro a playstation for symphony. I doubt I'll come off the hip for Rondo.

Started up Zelda 2 with the Nintendo online on the switch. Suspend points make this game infinitely less frustrating. I remember never having enough patience to beat it without the game genie. When you run out of lives you start back at the sleeping princess, often no where near where you were. Also, your experience got subtracted when an enemy hits you and completely reset when you had to continue. Now with the suspend feature when it gets to the last life I can save and retry from that point. it's really helpful to retry tough encounters until I reach that next experience milestone or finish off that palace boss before having to start all over and / or losing your experience progress.

Still messing around with the NES games on Nintendo's Online service -

Zelda - Level 9
Zelda 2 - Palace 6
Super Mario 3 - world 5

Ninja Gaiden - beat but used the SP version (started off at right at Fighting Ryu's dad, then the end guy), still difficult, still hate / love that game.

I've yet to win... but I've placed 2nd a few times.  It's fairly ridiculous by the time you get are 1 of 2 left.  The pieces are falling so fast.   Have you tried it yet?
