Played through the entirety of Nier this year. Liked it way more than I was expecting to.

That's Nier for ya. Neat game.

Hm, not much for the first time.

I guess I did play Persona 4 Golden, which is going back a few years AND is the first JRPG I've actually liked.

I just finished munching through Far Cry 4 so I think I'll get back to cleaning up some older games I want to revisit from years past. I've been doing it all year. I also have to get back to Persona 4 Golden.

Also just started Freedom Wars which seems pretty solid so far. So I'll chip away at that here and there.

No, clearly things are not on fire but when the three best things I played this year (Metro Redux, P.T. and Far Cry 4) were: a re-release, a demo-thing, and a something-very-similar-to-Far-Cry-3-from-two-years-ago, I don't think it was a banner year.

I would LOVE to play Bayonetta 2 though. And it hurts that I can't.

I even feel like the indi scene failed to blow me away... Transistor was the only standout I did play and it fell short of what I was hoping for. Still pretty darn good though.

Is it just me, or does Dan seem to be the Karl Pilkington of video game journalism?

Literally, I've had that exact same thought.

@pirateogta:

I actually, finally, got to play some Drive Club and was really surprised at how much I REALLY liked the feel of the driving.

It strongly reminded me of my PGR love with a dash of NFS: Shift. I know the game overall is busted/a bit lacking, but the core driving, physics and track design (what little I saw) I found remarkably compelling. And that's mainly why I play those games. I don't care about car count or real world literalism but whether it is FUN to hit that apex perfectly and scream around a corner.

So yea, I'll pick it up when it's a bit cheaper. :)

Killer is Dead is a somewhat decent game but the visuals are pretty great.

It's too bad because I was expecting another masterpiece like Killer7.

Yea, Killer is Dead is a good one for this catagory. My god that game got tiresome.

Wait, so you didn't even get to endings C and D?

You have to get to endings C and D, otherwise you miss out on something magical.

As a big fan of the game I've never seen any ending but the normal one. :D

It's just kind of a grind to get them and I don't want to wear down my enjoyment of the game.

Kayne is pretty great despite her super-stupid outfit. Alot of the more indepth backstory for her is at the new-game + though so don't really wanna spoil it. Her speech in the beginning of the intro is probably when the game got its hooks into me. Overall, she's mostly just really damn pissed, and I love it.

That's who I was going to say. Typically Nier isn't my sort of thing, but the game is great and she's a surprisingly well done character. (Jennifer Hale ftw again)

Laura Bailey.

Kaine was my first choice. She is a great character in a game filled with four great central characters. That she is also totally the main character is even better. People always seem willing to just write her off because of her outfit, but not only is it deliberate and makes sense story-wise, but people that fall into that trap are playing into the hands of the devs. It's dastardly.

Oh shit! My ears got that so wrong! And yeah, she rocks.

I don't play games anymore. I find them all incredibly boring.

This is like the most confusing post I've read on the site. I keep reading it over and over and I don't understand.

I'm pretty sure he's not a native english speaker because yeah. I look at it and nothing actually makes sense. Weird.
