My brother plays it. Looks like any other generic hack 'n' slash but with robots.

Yeah it's basically ninjas in space. Nothing terribly interesting, but the combat is enjoyable and the grind is filling up spare time nicely. It's also nice that it's another f2p title.

Started Witcher 2 and so far I don't like it as much. It's definitely more of a console game/casual RPG and relies far too heavily on cinematic sequences. Sometimes it feels like I'm watching a movie rather than playing a game. And it feels more natural to use my xbox controller rather than keyboard and mouse, which sucks. The fighting is much faster and you can't drink potions once in battle. The environments don't feel as open and the music isn't as great.

But this could change, I'm only about 3-4 hours in.
Geralt was shirtless for almost the whole prologue, so it at least has that going for it.

FFX Remaster on PS3. SU had never played it, so we cranked it out in around 50 hours over 5-6 weeks.

Such a great game. Even though Tidus is annoying as hell (HA HA HA!!). I think it might be one of my favorite FF titles, but I'm conflicted between a few of them. I love the scene before battling Yunalesca, and Auron's speech.

I also like Final Fantasy X-2, just for the battle system mostly. It's a fun game if you ignore the story and dialogue.

On the notion of Mortal Kombat X. I don't have this game yet, but I'll probably get it eventually. I've watched a couple of gameplay videos of it and such, and I've noticed that many youtubers seems to have strong reactions of shock and disgust over the various fatality moves you can perform, and I think they're being silly.

A few examples.

I ended up muting the Youtubers and just watching the fatalities.

But mindless hack and slash combat system is the best combat system. That and turnbased systems like in Kotor and NWN.

Don't be dissing NWN.  Greatest RPG evah.

Yeah, but these people react with shock and horror, screaming WHAT DA FAAACK while covering their faces. I could see how an elderly might find it horrifying, but these aren't exactly old people, so why are they so sensitive?

How did you reach the conclusion that I'm dissing NWN?

This is why I don't like reaction videos. The people always seem to overreact for no real reason.

A lot of people will put on an act if they know they're on camera, it's probably a natural response to knowing one is being watched, and either comes out of confidence or nervousness. Given the popularity of stuff like PewDiePie, whose claim to fame I understand to be screaming into a webcam while playing Amnesia, it's obvious that many people love to watch other people getting scared or being grossed out, so it's probably a good way to bring a lot of potential subscribers to their channel.

Yeah so, for no real reason. I never trust reaction shots because of this weird "being watched" effect.

That's why I post reaction videos of you on the darknet when you don't know I'm watching.  :)

I guess this would freak me out if I had a webcam.
