I decided to play through one of Xblaze Code: Embryo's story paths.

Like I mentioned in my previous post,it's a prequel to the Blazblue fighting game series,set 150 years before the Blazblue series.

It's story is actually based on a guy who is in highschool,who discovers a secret organization whom have special powers,and a lot of it is high school drama stuff,but it shows the events that lead to the creation of Black Beast which nearly wiped out humanity.

It's story is mildly entertaining,because of it's presentation,and because it's different,although it doesn't have much depth.It has anime-charm such as female characters flaunting their large breasts,and a guy who has multiple love interests.

What makes this game noticeably different to other visual novels are it's A.O.S and TOi systems.The A.O.S lets you view dreams by saving the game at a certain point,and then reloading that save.The TOi system involves being able to choose which articles to read or to ignore,which has an affect on the story path.

I bought it for a dirt cheap price,and it also has an easy platinum,so it helps masks the fact it's one of my least favorite visual novels.

I'm actually envious I'd love to play it from scratch again!.

There is currently a sale on Ubisoft games on XBL so I've taken the plunge and brought FC Primal just started it now.

Also did a playthrough of Murdered Soul Suspect. Has anyone else tried this? I though it was very good. I think Thade would like it.

I played the first part of Evolve (Free game from XBL) yesterday. The graphics are good, but I must say that I'm not a fan of "mash-all-the-buttons as fast as you can". I'll play it again but it's not my style. 😽

Games are about possibilities, the paths we take as well as the ones we don't.

I played through Firewatch on the X1, I will say it was fun and more like a mystery visual novel than a game. I was slightly confused at the end though as some things didn't seem to add up so I may need to go through it again.

I have also been playing Evolve which I enjoyed on the PS4 and again in the X1. It has a bit of a learning curve and as Masiv said it looks great probably the best looking game this gen along with The Witcher 3/AC Unity. I have a 5 wins and 7 defeats in hunt mode won 1 extraction lost 1 extraction so far. Scariest monster is Gorgon imo someone just destroyed my team yesterday with that thing they where damned good we never caught sight of them till stage 3 then WHAM all over in about 40-50 seconds 😳

I discovered a lot on my second playthrough of Firewatch. It's a really great game.

Have you tried Murdered Soul Suspect? I tried it recently It's got the detective side of LA Noire, a bit of horror, a bit of uniqueness, and has a strong story. I thought you might like it and it was free on the XB1 so you might own it.

Platinumed XBlaze Code Embryo. I've purchased the Batman Telltale series season pass for a cheap price,so I might give that a play next.As some aspects of Sword Art Online Lost Song are starting to annoy me,and I am not in the mood for grinding,so I'm not ready to move onto World of Final Fantasy yet. I still have an unopened copy of Senran Kagura: Estival Versus,but I haven't felt in the mood to play it either.

I think I picked it up when it was free, if I have I will give it a try since I loved LA noire 😀

I'm enjoying Batman The Telltale series so far. It's story is quite intense and emotional. I'm not even a fan of Batman,but I really care about this story,and it's story has things that many of us will be able to relate to. It's gameplay reminds me of Shenmue,except with Batman. It's music is delicate and beautiful. I'm surprised this game got lots of mediocre scores from critics. Personally,I've learned not to underestimate Telltale,after how much I loved The Walking Dead game(even though I don't even like the Walking Dead TV series),and The Wolf Among Us is a very enjoyable story,even though it's premise sounded a bit corny at first when I read it.I'm looking forward to the Guardians of the Galaxy game Telltale are developing.

Completed Batman The Telltale series.Even though I'm not a fan of the Batman series,I really enjoyed this game.It's story is very well done,each character has personality,and I like how the story is about so many different things,it isn't just Batman is going after so and so,the story focuses on things that affect us in our daily life.

I will go as far as saying Batman is my favorite Telltale game,even though I can see why other people are going to say The Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us are better.The Talltale games have great artstyles,I will go as far as saying I wish more western developers would focus less on realism and more on artstyle.I'm looking forward to the Guardians of the Galaxy Telltale game.

Took me quite a while to learn to like "artstyle", but now I appreciate it more. Heck, I started playing Borderlands four or five times before I finally got started with it, because I didn't like the "cartoonish" look of it. But it really grew on me, and more games interested me because of artstyle. Kingdoms of Amalur, Enslaved, Rage, are just of a few good games that pulled me because of the look of the game.

Telltale is a different story, I have only played the beginning of one TT game, Borderlands ???, I just couldn't get into the linear ness and prompted gameplay, but I do enjoy their graphic look.

I really enjoyed telltales Batman, it was a good story and I really enjoyed the different approach they took to the characters though I can understand why some people didn't. I would say I like Wolf Among Us more but I love fantasy/horror stuff like that in general.

I am going through Far Cry Primal at the minute, I held off getting it because it looked a bit silly in the videos I saw but I am actually loving it and having a great deal of fun. It has the usual Ubisoft open world approach much like other Far Cry/Assassins Creed games but it is different enough to be its own game too.

I really like the visuals for Insomniac games(Ratchet and Clank and Sunset Overdrive),as well as other western-developed games such as Sly Cooper series,Psychonauts,Media Molecule games,Warcraft 3,Kingdoms of Amalur. Especially western-developed games during the 16-Bit gen such as Donkey Kong Country(was produced by Rare),and Aladdin,as well as some of the 64-Bit games such as Jet Force Gemini and Banjo Kazooie.I'm looking forward to Yooka Laylee,a platformer being developed by many members of the same team whom developed Banjo Kazooie. Realistic visuals are good at times,but sometimes artstyle adds charm and atmosphere.

I haven't played the Borderlands TT game,but I've heard it's one of the worst TT game.Many people say the best TT game is Walking Dead,it actually received game of the year awards.

Wolf Among Us was a very enjoyable experience.It's music and atmosphere,combined with murder mystery elements made it have a nice film-noir style feel,and combining it with fantasy elements was quite clever.

Have been a big fan of Far Cry since 3, didn't care for 2, but I thought Primal was a breath of fresh air, I am probably 50% of the way through the game, but something else took me away, I will return one day. Too many to choose from..

Just finished getting the A Ending of Nier Automata I'm just gonna say it's great! Drakengard 3 has multiple endings too one of which I never got since weapon collecting isn't fun at all. luckily Nier gives me a lot easier way to get it's Major Endings. some other endings looks like a good joke ending to me.

So I'll be continuing Nier until Ending D............ I Think.

Work and hackers have had me tied up, but still plugging through Horizon, Zero Dawn: I think he story is great and I love the game play. This is the best game I have played since Fallout 4. I need about 15K XP to level up to 50, which I think is the max, and two more main missions to complete, half way through the next to last one. Hopefully I will get through it this coming weekend. HZD is one of those games that you hate to see the end. Since there are no alternate endings, I doubt I will play through it again though, at least not for a while. Want to start on ME Andromeda.

Just finished the actual ending of Nier Automata. from Ending A to E. Considering A to E is the five major ending of the game.
I'll post what I think about the game in my blog thread to avoid spoilers and yes there will be spoilers in my post.
