BTW, after a couple of days of failed attempts, I finally beat Lingering Will! I died so many times. His first phase took some getting used to, but it wasn't too bad when I got into the grove of it. The second phase was a lot more crazy, with him teleporting all over the place and sealing off my attack or my magic.

I finished Ori over the weekend, and while the gameplay was decent fun, the visuals and soundtrack were definitely what I found most compelling. Overall it was a breezy play that I'd definitely recommend.

"How does it compare to Hollow Knight?"
Couldn't tell you, as I haven't played it -- though I plan to somewhat soon. Ori was a game I'd owned on Steam for literally years, and I'd like to start cleaning out my Steam library of games like it, including Hollow Knight, but also others, such as Final Fantasy IX, and even some visual novels, like Muv-Luv.

I knew you had been playing some other game alongside Vook (don’t remember which one at the moment), but didn't realize it was a regular thing. Fun.

"On a different note, how’s Dragon Ball Z going?"
A clear step down from the original, even at this relatively early point where (I think) the show is still well-liked by the fanbase at large. The original maintained a levity and ridiculousness that made some of its more uninspired plot points come off as just being in good fun, and managed to build its sense of scale and story in ways that were both natural and fun. Z saps a lot of the the fun with its egregious pacing and overly serious tone. The plot has started to feel cyclical and repetitive, too obvious about putting itself into a holding pattern for Goku to save the day while constantly training up the rest of the characters to be just below him (in ways that feel much too easy considering the struggles Goku undertook to achieve the same). The cast is still entertaining and likable as a whole, and I actually enjoy some smaller bits of the narrative (like Piccolo's surprisingly believable transition from a purely villainous role), but in many ways Z is already the show that pop culture paints it as -- and I don't mean that as a compliment.

Oh yeah, I still need to play Katana Zero. Heard a lot of good things about it.

As for V3, I think I'll wait until you finish it to give my thoughts on it. I do really like a good chunk of the cast by the end of it.

Grabbed Yooka Laylee, Resident Evil 5 and Yoku's Island Express all for just under $30.

It was a pretty okay E3 on my end, though most of the stuff we saw were games I was planning to basically get no matter what anyway, like Cyberpunk, Doom and Fire Emblem, along with a few announcements that will certainly be day-one buys for me, like BOTW 2. Other games I plan to pick up are Death Stranding (of course), Pokemon, Astral Chain, and the new Ori. I'm actually playing Ori and the Blind Forest right now; it's a short and sweet Metroidvania platformer, albeit with a couple gameplay frustrations.

Frankly, I'm a bit worried about the FFVII remake. It looks great and I'm guessing it'll be fun to play, but the fact that it's only going to cover Midgar (which, indeed, is basically the prologue) and they have no concrete plan for what they'll do about the rest of the story is... worrying. I don't want to sit through successive episodes that'll take a decade to come out in full and the only reason I see to expand the original so much is corporate greed.

And again, apologies for the slow response. It might be best to expect me to mostly only respond on weekends going forward.

Edit: Oh, and about Banjo, I haven't played them personally, but I did watch a full playthrough of Tooie on Youtube a few years ago. I'd like to play the series one day but frankly it's not a super high priority.
LibanAli Jun 15, 1:32 PM
That's pretty impressive. I assume that the Undertale boss you're talking about is Sans?

I see. I'll check it out at some point.

Yeah, the show is good in sub and dub. Ryouko is also voiced by the same actress who voiced Nagisa from UDG, and you can definitely hear it, lol. It's certainly one of the most batshit insane shows I've ever watched. With the glorious soundtrack and action, it's certainly an enjoyable show. The animation is inconsistent, but it makes use of that by having the characters move around in deliberately janky and comical ways during scenes. Ryuko and Satsuki also work well as foils to each other and grow by the end of the series. It pokes fun in a lot of tropes like the revealing outfits, and the student council. Even in the second half where things get more serious, it still maintained that dumb fun charm that the show always had. The exposition is pretty bad tho, and there were times where it could get pretty dumb, even for the show itself. Still, it was a good time.

As a bit of an update, I actually managed to beat all the Data XIII members. It took a couple of days, but I did it! The only thing left is...Lingering Will. That's gonna take a while.

I have heard of Punch Line and knew it was written by Uchikoshi, though it does seem to be among his less notable works. I may or may not give it a look, but I’m in no rush to do so. However, I am interested in checking out some of his other works at some point, as if 999/VLR are at all indicative of his preferred writing style, then it’s a style I’m quite fond of. In particular I’m curious about his Infinity series of visual novels that are often referred to as the spiritual predecessor for Zero Escape, apparently starting out as primarily a romance/drama but then putting more emphasis on sci-fi/escape elements after the first title. I’ve even heard some people call 999 “basically discount Ever17”, the second game in the Infinity series, which is... interesting, to say the least. His upcoming game AI: The Somnium Files also looks interesting, apparently combining detective game mechanics and some kind of dream world puzzles with another flowchart story structure, so that’s another one to keep an eye on this fall.

I hear Attack on Titan is pretty crazy right now. I should catch up on it before I have it accidentally spoiled or something! The first “part” of Season 3 does seem a bit more divisive for the series with its apparently greater focus on political intrigue over cinematics and action, but we’ll see how it goes. Fruits Basket is something I intend to check out eventually and at this point, it’s looking like either the reboot or the manga is the way to go.

Have fun with V3! It’s a little uneven but at its best, it has some of my favourite stuff in the whole series!

How's Gatchaman Crowds doin for ya?
YutakanaOka Jun 13, 2:41 PM
I see, well then, I might check the games out sooner than what I have planned.
Speaking of AI The Somnium Files, I'm really not too sure what to expect of it at this point. All Ii can say is that I found the style it went for mildly off-putting. As for Death Stranding, while I don't have an opinion formed about Kojima since, as I mentioned, I haven't played any Metal Gear games, the trailer is intriguing enough to grab my attention on its own. Looking forward to see how it turns out, seems like it's gonna be wild.

What have you been up to? We haven't talked in a long time. Did you manage to beat Sans? Also, thoughts on E3?

Ys8 Lacrimosa of Dana Sidequests are really worthy, they develop characters and adds a lot to the worldbuilding. But yeah, most of the time side quests aren't that good.

They aren't 7, they are 8 if you count Origin XD, although one of them hasn't been remade so 7 it is xP. But as I said, they are fairly shorter. The only ones that are direct sequels are I, II and Origin (Being Origin a Prequel to I and II), after that you can pretty much play them in any order and connect the lore.

Hmmm I see, well If I ever have the time I'll try them. And yes, if I get a PS4 I'll probably play KHIII by then, Although I'm not as hype as I was before release.
HereticHunter Jun 13, 10:34 AM
Well not exactly, the games have a plot on their own, but they have lore connections. So you can just play them any order and still know what's going on. But for a better experience it is recommended that you play them on an specific order. Most of the games are fairly shorter than the average RPG, so you shouldn't worry that much about it.

I've heard about it, but I've never played them. Are they also related to XenoSaga and XenoGear? I tried playing XenoSaga on an emulator but didn't run properly.
HereticHunter Jun 13, 9:54 AM
So, I finally finished my Ys Marathon after finishing Lacrimosa of Dana today. Easily Best game I've ever played. If you ever have a chance, you better try the Ys Franchise someday :D
SuperRed Jun 13, 8:48 AM
Yooka Laylee is at 9.99 on PSN store, well, guess it get it while it's cheap.
LibanAli Jun 12, 2:54 PM
My opinion of E3 is pretty much the same, tbh. Loved Square Enixs and Nintendos presentations, but I didn't care too much for the rest. Too much mobile games and Epic Game Store shilling from the PC Gaming Show. Having said that, Keanu Reeves is a delight regardless, and I'm very excited for some of games coming this year and next year.

I've also been watching Kill la Kill and it's pretty fun. It oozes with that Gainax charm with an entertaining cast of characters(Satsuki is my favorite so far, but I also love Sanageyama), and an over the top presentation. Has some interesting ideas too, like Satsuki's viewpoints on humanity. Can't say I'm too keen on some of the jokes tho.
Grex11 Jun 11, 5:57 PM
Sorry for the slight delay. I just started my job, so my activity and responsiveness might be sporadic until I get used to the schedule.

I wasn't able to catch Microsoft or Nintendo live, but I'm pretty happy with how E3 has shaken out. Cyberpunk was always going to be a day-one for me, so Keanu's just icing on the cake lol. Doom's looking awesome, though I likewise couldn't really care less about the rest of Bethesda's stuff. Awesome about today's two Smash characters! I plan to play DQ XI when it comes to Switch, and while I don't have a personal nostalgia for Banjo, I can still appreciate how cool and fitting his appearance is.
