April seems to be a pretty dry month as far as retail releases go and I was curious on what games you guys planned on playing. I plan on trying to finish Second Son and Ground Zeros. Also play some Mercenary Kings/Arkham City thanks to Plus. I personally love slow months so that I don't feel pressured to finish the big AAA release to stay up to date with the discussions going on the site.

Its either BlazBlue Chronophantasm or The Witch and the hundred Knight ... if I get money for one. If not keep playing Dark Souls 2 and maybe Dust

#3 Edited by Oscar__Explosion (2193 posts) -

For my April game (trying to complete at least one game per month) I am going to finish The Last of Us and am currently on a Hard Mode playthrough of Bioshock Infinate.

I still need to finish Dark Souls 2, which I'm slowly working may through. Also need to finish Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, which I just started a week or two ago, and I'm inching my way through that. Mercenary Kings is out on PS4 tomorrow and I want to give that a try. The second PS4 beta for FFXIV also starts in a few days and I believe it's going to allow character transfer, so I'll probably end up playing some of that. And beyond all that I'm increasingly being drawn to jump back into Diablo 3 on the PC, even though I really really just want to wait for the PS4 version. (If they would only give a date I could probably hold off, but the indefinite wait makes it kind of torture.)

I very rarely juggle so many games at once, but I'm having a hard time focusing on just one.

Probably keep playing Hatsune Miku Project Diva f, which I haven't been able to put down since I bought it the other day. Not sure if it's just really fucking great or if I've simply been itching for a good Vita game. Aside from that, probably continue to play WoW like the shameless shill I am, and wait for the Dark Souls II PC version to come out. Still need to finish Rayman Legends and Fire Emblem Awakening, too.

Likely a bunch of backlog stuff. I've been wanting to pick up a few things (FFX HD, Ground Zeroes), but I'm trying to resist the urge and finish the gross number of games I already have, plus play some "unfinishable" stuff like Diablo 3.

#7 Edited by Aegon (5393 posts) -

Play more Wonderful 101. Maybe make more progress in Xenoblade (it's so long -_-). If more Walking Dead or Wolf Among Us comes out, then that as well.

My backlog is huge. Not entirely sure how to deal with it. I already have enough things distracting me on the internet from productivity.

Also, a monthly edition of a thread like this would be cool.

#8 Posted by Angouri (230 posts) -

FFX/X-2 with some Borderlands 2 co-op. I'm hoping Conception II is good, otherwise, Child of Light is my next game.

Wish WatchDogs was out.

  • Crusader Kings 2 - Rajas of India came out recently, adding a ton of new content to the game.
  • The Elder Scrolls Online - I've never played an MMO before, but I'm such a TES lore nerd that I might have to play this, even if it isn't going to be a great MMO.
  • Magic: The Gathering Online - I've been falling deeper and deeper down the MTG hole recently...
  • I'm buying South Park: The Stick of Truth the first time it goes on sale (i.e. isn't £40 on PC). If that's in April, then I'll play some of that.
  • Other games that I intend to buy the first time they go on sale - Jazzpunk, Banished, Banner Saga, and Betrayer.
  • Harvest Moon 3DS - because why the fuck not?
  • Tropico 5 - I like the Tropico games. If this one is good, I'll buy it and play it.
  • Recent games in my backlog that I may get to this month: Gunpoint; XCOM: Enemy Within; Path of Exile; Antichamber; and Don't Starve
#11 Posted by Hailinel (23857 posts) -

I just started Second Son, so I guess I'll either play that until I beat it or I get sick of it and move on.

#12 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11466 posts) -

Games I am in some process of playing and will probably continue to play through the month:

  • Etrian Odyssey IV. After the bad taste of Bravely Default's second half, I'm totally okay continuing on with a RPG that is exactly what it says and doesn't aspire to be anything more or less
  • Thief. Thus far, I don't hate it. In fact, I'd go as far as to say I've enjoyed playing Thief. It has problems, sometimes feeling like a old-school stealth game (Yay!) and sometimes like a half-baked modern update (Nay!), but I'm crossing my fingers that its second half isn't unabashedly awful or something.
  • Age of Wonders III: It's a Fantasy Turn-Based Strategy game with RPG elements. If you don't think I'm not all over that, you're crazy.
  • Dark Souls II: is a game that will come out later this month for the Personal Computer and has clearly never been released anywhere else beforehand.

Slogging through FFXIII-2 currently. It's definitely an improvement on FFXIII in most ways, but sometimes it's just ridiculous. Having lyrics (bad lyrics at that) in almost every piece of background music is a really strange, and often distracting-in-a-bad-way design decision. (Who the fuck OKed a metal song with the singer going full growl "so you think you can ride this chocobo"???) And fuck the story, the writers for these games have clearly just given up at this point.

I'll probably finish it in April, so next probably something a little more action oriented from the backlog pile. Maybe inFamous 2 in honour of Second Son having just come out. That will probably take me through the end of April. I'm not exactly overloaded with video game time these days.

#15 Edited by Glottery (1104 posts) -

Evil inFamous playthrough, Reaper of Souls and Mercenary Kings. Think those three will keep me happy.

#16 Edited by Panelhopper (165 posts) -

For me April is going to be dominated by FFX/X2 HD & trying to platinum Lego marvel

Oh man, enjoy the annoying jump in difficulty right at the end of 13-2. It made me quit because I didn't want to grind to beat the final boss.

Didn't get Titanfall for my birthday, which I'm kinda not bummed about at all, though it does leave me with a huge gaping hole of nothing to play. I think I'll get The Stick of Truth and keep playing Ground Zeroes.

#19 Posted by Godlyawesomeguy (6385 posts) -

I haven't bought a game since 2012. So......study more, and work more, I guess. No games.

#20 Edited by jkz (4002 posts) -

I just got Asura's Wrath so I'm playing through that and will continue to. I want to finish Betrayer and play a bit more DS2, although I'm waiting for the brunt of my second run to be on the PC. Basically I want to finish stuff I started in March. I'll have a lot less time to play games this month, since I had some time off working in the last. Also I should probably finish The Witcher 2; I love that game I just don't know why I keep falling off on it.

#21 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2299 posts) -

Slowly replaying Pokèmon Heartgold and trying to get through this huge ass load of unfinished games. I don't plan on picking up any new games so maybe I can at least scratch the surface...

Lol.

#22 Edited by wolfskind (55 posts) -
  1. Finish Mass Effect.
  2. Play Dark Souls 2.
  3. ....probably more Dark Souls 2.
#23 Posted by Hippie_Genocide (537 posts) -

More Dark Souls 2. More Diablo 3. Practicing up in SSF4 in preparation for Ultra. Maybe Blazblue Chronophantasma.

#24 Posted by Village_Guy (2491 posts) -

Dark Souls 2

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls

Age of Wonders 3

Trials Fusion

Titanfall

#25 Posted by Hunter5024 (5536 posts) -

I think I've recovered enough from my Bravely Default JRPG overdose that I can finally play through Final Fantasy 13-3. Steins;Gate comes out at the end of the month too. I suppose there's Dark Souls 2 as well, but I want to get a little more space from my playthrough of the first one before I tackle that. I'd like to play Infamous but I probably can't get a ps4 until this summer when my finances clear up a bit.

Man this year has been really dry for games, it's a good thing that the games I've wanted to play have been so long.

#26 Edited by Clonedzero (4091 posts) -

More dark souls 2. It's pretty great, already beaten it, close to beating it a second time.

Will probably play hitman absolution since i just got it for free via xbox gold thing.

Might get the 360 version of titanfall pending the quality. if its good then ill get it, if its crap then yeah ill just skip it. skeptical right now.

Got a stack of games to get through. All AC games, All Sly games, ME3, MG 1 & 2, as well as Metal Gear Solid 1 and VR missions, Arkham Trilogy, Dishonored, Morrowind, more Skyrim, and I'm trying to get into Kingdom Hearts. Oh, and I almost forgot, I've got to finish Saints Row IV... and Risen 2, Splinter Cell Trilogy and Blacklist...

And those are just some of the games in my backlog.

#28 Posted by Danteveli (1160 posts) -

Probably some DarkSouls 2 on PC and random indie games that will pop up on steam during the month

#29 Edited by Humanity (8800 posts) -

I dunno man, whats coming out? Maybe I should finally get that PS4.

#30 Posted by SingingMenstrual (327 posts) -

The best thing I've done gaming-wise since I started in the 90s, is no longer have plans for my gaming.

No plans, no backlog, no lists, nothing. I just pick a game that feels right and go with it, and have a blast playing video games. I focus more on my work and education, so that video games remain an occasional treat!

Right now I'm taking my time on my 4th playthrough of Assassin's Creed 2, after that I might jump into a good RPG, maybe finally play Neverwinter Nights 2 and its expansions, or start a-fresh in Skyrim.

#31 Posted by Lyisa (328 posts) -

Probably continue to play FFXI until Dark Souls II is released on PC. Than I will play Dark Souls II to completion with some sprinkles of FFXI thrown in.

#32 Edited by Savage (316 posts) -

A balanced diet of new and old games, largely drawn from my backlog. I'm currently playing Dark Souls II, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, The Longest Journey, Heretic, and Thief Gold. After them, who knows? I don't pre-plan my game playing much, so I'll just play whatever from my backlog jumps out at me when the time comes.

#33 Posted by TheHT (10871 posts) -

DIABLO 3 GOT A HOLD OF ME AND I CANT SLEEP SEND HELP NEED LEGENDARIES

#34 Posted by Chaser324 (6317 posts) -

Finish FF XIII and move on to XIII-2. I'm sure the will be some Titanfall and indie stuff also thrown in there.

I've got all the trophies in Infamous Second Son and MGS Ground Zeroes. Not totally done with Ground Zeroes, playing a mission on hard every once in a while. I find just sneaking around the base so satisfying in that game.

I'm getting FF 14 on PS4 this month so probably a lot of that. I have so many 3DS games I've barely touched. Vacation the week of the 21st. Can't wait for just having a week off from work. Should go somewhere since I haven't done that in a while, but I usually just end up sitting around the house playing games.

#36 Edited by Poonz (127 posts) -

- Continuing my Ironman Spelunky run which isn't really progressing

- I may buy Dongonrappa or some other Vita game as soon as I get done Bravely Default which I've slowed down with since getting past Chapter 4

- I'm almost at the end of my first season of MyCareer in NBA2k14 so when that's done I'll probably be almost done with that.

- I'll be finished Stick of Truth this weekend, no idea what I'm gonna play next on my 360.

- On the last Super Mario 3D World with my fiancee we just haven't had time to finish it.

I've been trying to decide between Infamous and Metal Gear Solid or just don't buy either and wait for Child of Light which looks amazing.

#37 Posted by falserelic (5312 posts) -

To keep playing Dynasty Warriors: XTREME LEGENDS!...on ps4.

Cus obviously it's XTREME!!! I've seen some of the most ridiculous combos and weapons while playing this game.

#38 Posted by big_jon (5709 posts) -

Not really sure, getting bored of Battlefield and Titanfall, and just finished South Park. Maybe I'll go back and finish Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze.

#39 Edited by Fattony12000 (7035 posts) -

Go to Japan. See what they got over there.

#40 Posted by Capum15 (4807 posts) -

Dark Souls 2 will occupy the last few days of April.

Until then, I still have some 3DS and Vita games to play, currently hunting the shit out of some monsters in Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. Might try and finish the last story boss in Soul Sacrifice, or play more Persona 4 Golden NG+. I also have a recent Civ V game, Titanfall, and have been thinking about going back to Dark Souls for a bit with a Cestus run to warm up for DS2.

#41 Edited by Brodehouse (9576 posts) -

I'm playing Saints 4, Castlevania Lords of Shadow and I still have the end of the South Park game to finish.

Also playing Omerta: City of Gangsters. I just helped the World's Strongest Man Mark Henry defend his bar from the KKK. They showed up in robes with tommy guns. It was the best.

Hmmm... I've been completing most of the side quests and have a good 75-80 percent of the fragments. Just from that, I've mastered three roles per character, and the other three are all level 50+; however, according to some guide I just looked at, I haven't exactly been using optimum leveling paths. You only get bonuses on large nodes, so you should level the roles with the stat bonuses that you want for each character on the large nodes. Basically I've missed out on a potentially large amount of strength and magic by not saving commando or ravager levels for the large nodes... The actual game never really explains any of this. Which is utter horseshit. I suppose my characters have more balanced stats anyway, but it would have been nice to know ahead of time how to min/max the important stats. Maybe I should have started with a guide...

How exactly bad is this difficulty spike?

Unplug PS4.

Plug DS4 into PC.

Enjoy Dark Souls 2 on the master platform for the master race.

I only just found out that Persona 3 FES came to the European PSN this year, so I'll probably just be playing through that. Think I might start A Link Between Worlds as well.

#48 Posted by Video_Game_King (35982 posts) -

Yume Nikki, probably Saints Row The Third, maybe wrap up Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Still Fucking Stupid Name Remix.

#49 Posted by hermes (1365 posts) -

The only game coming out in april that slightly interests me is Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. Other than that, I have a massive backlog to catch up on...
