    I was able to beat TAG2 on UN last night. What a rush. I honestly love this DLC and will keep playing it. My next run attempts will be with the second escalated encounters, but for now I want to do the SGN Master Level to get that gold shotgun.
     
    I uploaded the run if anyone is interested. I may do a commentary version explaining my thought process and strats for the different arenas, but everything went the way I wanted it to, so it’s pretty obvious from just watching the videos... I make it pretty easy with when and where I shoot BFGs and collect chainsaws to take out some heavies, etc.

    oh yeah---The Division--- when they first showed footage of this game at E3, I was interested because it looked awesome...visually it was on another level at the time.  Then came a critical 2-hit combo the killed it for me... too much "real world" stuff and the fact that it's online-only.  I've given some games a pass on that horrible online-requirement nonsense, only when I enjoy literally everything else about it to such a degree that I can overlook such an unfortunate flaw.... but I couldn't give this one a pass.  When it is too much based on reality (*thus, no expectations of supernatural powers, aliens or ghost, vampires, mutants, zombies, time travel, portals, demons, etc. etc.) , then I probably won't ever be interested, as I've surely mentioned many times before.... quite unfortunate; there was 3 friends trying to sell me on that shit but nah... *maybe* if I got the game for free and even that's just a very bleak "maybe". 
    ....Look at Outriders on the other hand---that game lets me do shit like slow down time itself around me, teleport or use other elemental magical powers in addition to the gunplay.  Gears lets us save a world from subterranean humanoid freaks that have a similar level of tech and weaponry... Lost Planet gave us a cool grappling hook to play with as we fight alien creatures, and of course Vampyr lets me live out my fantasy of being a powerful badass vampire, Saint's Row 4 lets me super-speed run or fly around the city as the President of the U.S., saving the world from hostile aliens with my superpowers and Keith David as the VP....sheeeittt, the list goes on and on.  Games that are shackled to "real-world stuff" can't even begin to compete with stuff like that, imo.
     
    It's not always the parents' fault when a kid does some stupid, horrible shit.  Sometimes that kid was just seemingly destined to be a horrible person.  We've all seen this early in life with our peers...with the classic example of the bullies at school, or perhaps those kids that enjoy torturing animals...  I am not sure why people forget about this when they grow up.  Perhaps it's something about human nature itself that is a bit too depressing and dark for most people to admit...we don't want to admit that there is such a thing as a "bad seed"... a kid who was destined to be a lowlife piece of shit that was always doomed to fail or do something horrible at some point.  No, I don't believe children are all perfectly blameless "magical" creatures.  Just like in teen and adult years... some people are just scum and it becomes obvious at a surprisingly early stage in life.

    I've never been into the Ass Creed games either, but I loved Ghost of Tsushima. From what I've read all the Ass Creed fans were jealous that the combat in Tsushima was so much better. Story was really good in it too. Great mashup of action, stealth, open world, and story. Highly recommend.

    Konami brawlers are supposed to be simple to the point that you can drop a quarter in, mash the attack button and have a great time/kick ass, at least TMNT1 and Simpsons. Turtles In Time was much more complex than that and Double Dragon 2 had a lot of stuff going on considering how simple the controls really were. Final Fight seemed like a more polished version of SoR even though it came out 2 years prior.
     
    Anything Yuzo Koshiro composes though, I'll stan for. That man is fucking brilliant even when I'm not as into the songs (like Portrait Of Ruin.) He'd be a saint forever imo if the only thing he ever composed was the Actraiser OST.
     
      

    Bloodborne is one of the best games ever made and better than every Souls game IMO, so that's a high water mark that's hard to top even with some of Sony's biggest franchises.

    Ooh, I've got another one: the only Sony exclusive I've been really excited about for a long time was Bloodborne. I did enjoy dad of war (a bit overrated though), but very few of their franchises interest me.

    I'd hold them up over Konami brawlers easily, but otherwise I tend to agree. SoR2 has such a bitchin soundtrack that it really gets held higher than it should. The console war factor (where few of us has SNES and Genesis if we had a 16 bit system at all) and the co-op probably boost its status as well.  Remake and 4 are pretty damn good though. 4 would have really benefitted from keeping 3's mechanics of universal run/dash and the up/down evasion- would speed up the feel a lot. Last playthrough I did was with Cherry and I was impressed with how much better her run made the game feel.

    Haven't played any of those other than GoW. Uncharted and LBP didn't look appealing to me at all. I considered Spider Man until I concluded it was probably a lot like the Arkham games, which I have already played the shit out of. All might be games I would enjoy- there's just nothing that makes me want to try them. Maybe if I had bought a PS3 instead of a 360 I would have tried some of those franchises a decade ago. And I do intend on picking up Ghosts of Tsushima once it goes down to $20- kind of afraid it will be too much like Assassins' Creed, which I have never been able to get into.

    I find the Streets Of Rage games to be janky and unpolished compared to other beat-em-ups. Not to say I don't enjoy them, but I'll gladly take Double Dragon 2, Final Fight 1, and Turtles In Time over pretty much any SoR game I've played.

    I think the exploration element is never going to top one's first time with one of the big dogs of the "metroidvania" genre. Especially if you first played Super Metroid or SotN back when they came out- the atmosphere was untouchable, and we didn't have anything near the number of quality titles in this style that we do now. 
     
    On a side note, while I really enjoy RotN, I've been more excited to have the classic style releases surrounding it. There have been a huge amount of really good indies in the Metroid style, and almost nothing in the classic CV style over the last 20 years.

    My only complaint with Fight-N-Rage was that all those unlockable characters could ONLY be used for the Vs. mode, I think... once I found that out, it cut down my desire to unlock the rest of them.  Part of the fun with this type of game for me is playing through the main story mode with newly unlocked characters each time.  The other nitpick is that it only has local co-op, instead of online 😞  Still, in terms of the gameplay... it's arguably the best beatemup of all time, actually.  
     
    ooh, this channel just posted a new vid about D2 Resurrected...

    FnR is so goddamn good. On the surface, you can play it like any other brawler, but once you start to learn the kinks of its combat you'll really have a lot to sink your teeth into. Training mode (which you strangely have to unlock) will introduce you to a lot of the mechanics. Then there's the large difference between characters, a lot of alternate stages, and several play modes. Anyone who has even the slightest interest in brawlers should grab this deal.

    Random Video Game find of the night - 
     
    Fight-N-Rage for $2.91 via steam code on PlayAsia. 
     
    https://www.play-asia.com/fightn-rage/13/70dumx
     
    I was looking into grabbing it on the Switch as I never heard of the title and seemed pretty interesting. Did a search on PlayAsia to see if it was available elsewhere physically. Took the gamble and it now it's part of the library.

    I'm just glad to have games that really scratch the itch well- let's not pretend the story was too stellar in most of CV to begin with. Gameplay, music, atmosphere, art design- all of which make way more of the experience than the story. Bloodstained does a great job with those elements, and thanks to RotN's creation we also have 3 great classic style CV games- both CotM titles and the free classic mode in RotN itself. Yeah, the story is dumb, but they do everything else right. I'll take more good CV games with those conditions over the nothing Konami is making.

    People care way too much about story in games where the story isn't the main focus. I really don't want to read a review or feature that spends 1/2 its time blathering on about the story in a Mega Man game.

    Fighters are among the worst for this. You could probably find better writing from an 8 year old with a crayon than the story mode in SFV or any Arc System game. Shit makes me cringe.
