I purchased Gears of War 5 since it was on sale, but I haven't started it yet since I still actually have to finish Gears of War 4.  ???

First world problem here; my roommate ordered a sale TV last week expecting that it would be shipped on Dec. 3 (since that's what it said) and instead they started shipping it on Thursday and she felt bad because now the FedEx guy had extra work on Thanksgiving! Then the tv actually got here yesterday, and we weren't prepared for it to be here early so we didn't have a new stand yet, and we had to make a trip to Ikea to get a new TV stand.

I had to work Thanksgiving (retail ew!) but I'm having basically my holiday today with taking off work and eating with friends. So far it's been pretty good.

I want the purple controller so much but can't justify the extra cost especially when I already have two controllers as it is.

It's the kind of game that the controls really were meant for a controller. If you end up getting the PC version, set it up so you can use a PS4 controller with it (you have to download extra software for that though) or use the Xbox One controller (that's what I'm doing).

Graphically it looks fine to me, but I haven't played the PS4 version to compare.

Haven't watched it myself, but the baby Yoda stuff is everywhere! So cute.

I don't have a Switch so I haven't gotten into Mario Maker 2. Or any of the big games for that. :(

What I've been playing recently is Nier Automata on my laptop through Steam with a Xbox One controller. I just finished the amusement park level. That boss was the hardest so far, I died about four times before I finally beat it. But I'm really digging the game.

I purchased Nier Automata on Steam, mostly because the next expansion of FFXIV is going to have a crossover raid, but also because I've heard great things about Nier anyway. I haven't played much of it because PC controls are kind of funky, so I've been meaning to use a PS4 controller but just haven't gotten around to it.

I've been playing Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions on my phone. I just got to the part where

I have one: sword0fstorms

I mostly use it to follow celebrities, but I do post. Mostly it's fandom related, though, especially FFXIV stuff.

I bought a 2ds XL the other day. I wanted something smaller than my giant 3DS XL. The one I got is purple, so double bonus.

I have it on PC. I'm only like level 7 though because most of my levels are on my Xbox One version.  ???

I haven't played since they added Brigitte, but I'm a decent D.Va.

oh geez my favorite memory of Gears of War 3 is

Spoiler: ShowHide
When Dom sacrifices himself and that song plays (you know the one)

As far as multiplayer...I did enjoy that quite a bit. I don't have any memories that stand out, but I think I got a few of the cool achievements.

I could be wrong, but I though @Mai Valentine or @Kinikko  played this.   Or maybe it was a different title...  lol.

Ah, no. I never actually finished the first Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii. I started playing it but I think I got distracted by something else.

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.

@Mai Valentine --> Do you play the paper D&D?

We use minis and are currently using 5th edition. We are taking a break at the moment though, everyone's schedule makes working out a day to play hard.

I don't play much but that's mostly because you get more out of it if you do a lot of walking. I play it a lot when I'm at conventions, but day to day life doesn't really give me much opportunity. I could probably walk around at work, but there's no Pokestops nearby so I would eventually run out of Pokeballs.

Oh you want to hear a great story about buying a steel book that I just remembered?

So the newest Final Fantasy Dissidia came out with a steel book, but there were three versions. The one I really wanted was the one with Lightning, but there was no way to tell what it was just looking at it. I bought a copy anyway, and totally lucked out with getting the one with Lightning.

It's dropped down to like $20 normally now, though, and that's the version with the DLC included. I mean if you don't want to wait for another sale, anyway.

I finished the main story of Tales of Zestiria. Now I'm playing the Alisha's Story DLC, which is set just after the ending of Zestiria.

It's already out but I really want Octopath Traveler for the Switch. I honestly considered buying it even though I don't have one yet, so that I'll already have it once I actually get a Switch.

I play with headsets as much as possible even without multiplayer, since I have housemates and don't want to bother them. Also, I process audio poorly so having it come from a speaker detracts from the experience.

I try to buy Turtle Beach when possible. They are very good and reliable. The one I have for PS4 is a Recon 60p (

What I like most about it is that it has both a standard jack (to plug directly into the PS4 controller) and a USB adapter (to plug into the PS4). The sound quality is the same either way. I'm not sure about voice quality since I don't play anything multiplayer.

The trailer I enjoyed the most was for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I'm very excited for that.

I'm also looking forward to Gears of War 5 and The Last of Us 2.

Oh crap I almost forgot: Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition!! Featuring stuff that was in the Japanese version that we never got here.

Silver is the one I played the most, but I also actually enjoyed Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness.

I finally got around to playing The Last of Us (with the sequel coming soon). I just got to part where there's a clicker and a bunch of regular zombies and I keep dying to the clicker so I took a break. I'm still fairly early in the game, maybe like an hour or two in.

They thought you had to pay for all the apps.

ah, okay, that makes sense. LG is also making some of the best 4K TVs as well. They're just a little more expensive. If someone wanted to upgrade from a TCL, the LG line would be it.

At work we just started selling an LG 4k OLED that's somewhere around $3000 but holy crap is the image amazing. My coworker and I just stood there and stared at it for like five minutes in awe.

Gaming is my biggest hobby, but I do also play D&D every Monday night with a group of friends. My current character is a Tiefling Ranger.

Any generation!

I think back to Champions of Norrath on the PS2! Loved that game.

Agreed on this. My wife and I played it a ton as I recall.

I'll say that most Mario games are included as well.

Co-op Gears of War was fun, too.

@Mai Valentine What is Animal Crossing Pocket Camp?  I cannot believe I haven't heard of this Animal Crossing game.

It's an Animal Crossing game for your cell phone. It has a lot of interesting features but I feel like it lacks the charm of some of the console releases. Mostly because you can play those for hours at a time, but Pocket Camp was designed in a way that you run out of things to do quickly if you play too much. It's meant to be a time waster, play a few minutes here and there while you're in between doing other things. They've added a ton of stuff since it came out, but I just can't get back into it.

General Discussion / Re: Favorite Video Game Soundtracks
« on: May 16, 2018, 06:48:41 PM »
I'm actually quite fond of the soundtracks for the games in the FFXIII series. I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite, but Sunleth Waterscape is up there.

Tales of Legendia has a great soundtrack as well. My favorite from there is Short Circuit, the theme that plays in the lightning based dungeon.

But my still favorite!! Is "Karma" by Bump of Chicken from Tales of the Abyss (aka "i'm not crying, you're crying" the song)
