I'm in the EA and it looks pretty good so far. There's is a lot which they still have to implement and certain core feature require improvement (tactical map) but it looks solid and I already enjoy playing it.
So can anyone who has played it compare it to Bayonetta for me? I REALLY loved Bayonetta, also I thought the story made perfect sense and was pretty awesome. If people now say the story is an incoherent mess, do they mean Bayonetta-like incoherent mess or like a different sort of incoherent mess? I also really liked the combat system in Bayonetta (and found it much better than i.e. the one in DMC - didn't play too many games like this so far).
I don't own the game yet, but I'm intending to buy it, if I find someone to play it with :). Also, I don't mind other regions, we just have to check if latency works out. Preqreuisite is of course that the online co-op is in yet. Anyone can confirm that, I'm not sure how to read the steam tags ;) (Does Multiplayer mean "online play"?).
Since I don't know what you've played I give you my favorite games of the last couple years: Bayonetta, Hotline Miami, The Banner Saga. Each of those, in my opinion, is exceptional. Go grab Hotline Miami right now if you haven't played it.
All your proposed buys are good games. FTL is might tire you out quick but it takes quite a while to even master basic combat and if you're going for unlocks you can sink TONS of hours in it. I think I played for 12 hours getting bored and then i picked it up later again and put another 12 hours or so into it.
It's not that important what you actually end up proposing. Just keep it simple (like a coffee). Also just try to get to know her, if you have too strong romantic aspirations it might turn awkward. Most importantly don't have any expectations towards the date and don't get frustrated if you guys don't get along. I'd say meeting her is a win for you no matter what happens - you'll ease up once you get to know more girls ;).
