Well, miraculously, not only picked this up, but started playing it and am very impressed. A completely re-vamped experience over the original from the 90s. Had to get used to the controls, as it is very different from the usual “casual” gaming that i do. Also different from your typical “mario”-esque gameplay. There are instances, especially when enemies are attacking quickly, to forget critical combos. For a while, i was like didn’t Samus have the ability to crouch into a small ball? Only later did i realize that you have to earn that ability. I also like the map feature. I remember playing through the original, and half the time it was like, “Did i already pass through this way?” For me, the circle-pad definitely has a different feel. I guess you get used to it. Such an immersive experience with a superb visually stimulating environment and music that i remember from the original, but, re-scored as if performed by Yanni himself (laughs) If you do play this game, keep watch over the time, as you’ll look up and boom, five hours gone. I started out like a house of fire, whether i see the game through to completion will be interesting to see. My rating as of this point, 10/10. Highly Recommended.
P.S.- The intro where they are explaining your mission and the crew that foraged the alien depths before, reminded me somewhat of the objective statement in the game Operation Neptune for those who remember PC gaming from the days of IBM 286.
Well, just recently picked this up at GameStop, and, so far, viewing it factory sealed has not bothered me (very unlike GalGun), but, we will see once gameplay starts. If it reaches the epitome of tedium, the trash can is waiting... with a new liner! :-D
@darthrutsula40 That post pretty much nails down exactly why I don't bother trying to play console games. The standard cord controllers don't have enough reach to go from my TV to the couch, and wireless never seem to have enough battery life for marathon gaming. While it was possible to keep charged packs available, no indication of when the battery was going to die usually meant it was going to happen at the worst possible time. Eventually, just said screw it and went to PC only. Don't play games very often anymore, but at least the computer is reliable.
Well, after much back and forth, i made a decision that this was one that i wanted and decided to purchase this game - - not sure i'm feeling the "happiness" or at least my wallet isn't. Progress has been made, i did at least launch the game to see that it didn't crash or conflict with my Norton 360 a plus in that certain STEAM games i have, have conflicted with Norton. Anyway, from what i can see as of this point, the artwork and music are good, however, i must admit, (and will probably make another thread about this) the layout i didn't feel was as "crisp" as Dal Segno...
Kerfuffle. From Encarta: U.K. a noisy disturbance or commotion
"But [the group] didn't want to litigate, and it didn't want to walk away either. Instead it put out a press release and posted the details of the kerfuffle on the Web." Brendan Miniter Wall Street Journal
Haven't heard that word in a while... (smiles) Good choice.
Well, tonight, i just picked up MMLCII at GameStop, however, even so, not sure if this title is enough inspiration for me to dust off my PS4 and re-connect it. Like i said in another post, perhaps when Blue Reflection is released, that will be the inspiration i need to re-set up my PS4.
Alright. This is finally available. Hopefully i didn't make a mistake in purchasing this (laughs) ;-) I guess i'll see, soon enough... The trend with me is to purchase these STEAM games - - then, i never get an opportunity to play them. Anyway, if you act now, STEAM has a promotion where you can get this game for $31.99 versus $39.99 until August 2.
Although i was going by the poster's second line, i could see how that setup left "room" for interpretation. I would say it's a safe bet with Anime News Network for the final word and have edited my original post, thanks for providing the link. Funny thing is, watch, WITHOUT utilizing the VR, the game will fall completely flat, which is hard to imagine, especially in thinking of Neptunia games (laughs) ;-)
