I'm now about 8 hours into Final Fantasy X... so I have like 50 hours to go.
From what I remember of FFX that sounds like a very fast playthrough you're planning

^ Quite possibly... I know that when I played it on the PS2, I got past the 100 hour mark. So I have no idea if I can actually beat the game in 60 hours.

I'm currently playing Grand Theft Auto V on PS3. It is an amazing game and we've come so far with gaming technology. It's awesome!

Been playing and actually just finished Wolfenstein: The New Order. Extremely fun, with an engaging story to boot. Also, Dwight Schultz voices Deathshead ^^

Re: What games are you playing currently?

A little more than 40 hours into my "quick" Mass Effect 2 playthrough to start the "final/definitive" Mass Effect 3 playthrough.

Done with all the DLC (finally) and all loyalty missions, except Legion's as I haven't done the Reaper IFF mission yet.

Lair of the Shadow Broker is still great, BTW. Hell, ME2 as a whole is still fantastic, even after having lost count of my previous playthroughs.

ME2 is a great shooter but a terrible RPG.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I finally broke down and bought a Wii U, which I've been playing more than I've been playing my PS4.

The system came with Zelda: Windwaker, and I bought Mario Kart 8 which came with a free download for New Super Mario Bros. U. I've been playing all three, which are fun as hell and are also causing my to neglect my copies of Infamous: Second Son, and Watch Dogs, which I've barely touched.

Depends on your definition of RPG. I can only speak for myself, but I distinctly remember enjoying that game in which I played a roll and had a lot of agency in doing so.

Short version: Inventory System ≠ RPG.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Been playing too much Tomodachi Life lately. Finally started playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf again, glad that there are any people left in my town . Played some Pokémon X as well and did some shiny hunting.

I could let them get by with neutering the inventory system. But they also neutered the skill trees (I've seen "true" shooters with deeper skill trees), and the railroading prevented me from continuing to roleplay my Shepard from the first game.

Oh come on, the ME1 "skill tree" was terrible! Admittedly, ME2's was a bit too spartan, but they rectified that in ME3.

Regardless, my point on what does and does not define an RPG stands. Frankly it was refreshing to see a game break away from the old D&D style mechanics. Most of which were designed with pen and paper in mind, not video games with hand/eye skill based combat mechanics.


Yeah anyway, back on topic: I've been giving Saints Row 4 a go. Though it's a lot more fun than SR3, I can't get away from the feeling that it's way too short and still nowhere near as much depth of play as SR2.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I just started Okami HD on PS3. I've never played Okami before, but I've had this on my ps3 for awhile, so I decided to try it. I'm only about an hour and a half in, but its fun so far. I'm a bit annoyed that you can't make dialog go faster during some cutscenes (especially the WAY too long opening), and the fake voices are annoying, but the game play is fun so far.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I just started playing Ni No Kuni. I picked it up about a month or two ago during a PS sale, but I haven't started it until now. I just got my first familiar, Mitey. I'm really enjoying it so far.

It feels like a more modern Dragon Quest game with the focus on exploration of a new world in a linear game, but without the archaic battle system.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

I just finished the last episode of The Wolf Among Us. It was awesome. The whole game was great, probably my favorite of the three TT games I've played (the other two were BTTF and TWD 1, both of which were good but I think I liked TWAS more).
