Kingdom Hearts 0.2: a forgotten passage. I grew up with this series and I'm seeing it to the end. For what is essentially an engine demo for Kingdom Hearts III it was very well done and I was impressed to see Mickey show up for the final battle. Now to wait a year for Kingdom Hearts III, sigh.
I want to play that game, but it doesn't seem worth it to buy a PS4 just for that. Maybe I'll borrow my cousin's at some point.
I’m a big fan of Dennis Detwiller’s writing, and that’s the engine that drives the game. The game looks beautiful and is a tremendous amount of fun to play. I'll do a mission and then I'll get distracted and engage in a thirty minute rampage. There is something sublime about throwing a minivan at a helicopter. The funny thing is that the cut scenes are all well-acted, except for the main character, who seemed a notch below everyone else. I suggested to a friend that this might be an audience identification thing, prompting him to remark, "He grunts and wears a hoodie! He's just like me!"
Unfortunately, when I went to load my save game, I saw that I had last played it nearly two years ago, so I was just a wee bit rusty. I think what must have happened was that I took a break before a particularly frustrating mission and never picked it back up. I couldn’t even remember the gameplay basics, but I didn’t want to start over to reacquaint myself because I was pretty close to the end and I wanted to get to the New Game +.
Controls are little finicky. This is improved in the sequel, however the story in that one is loud and dumb and fails to take advantage of the clear sequel hooks from the first. I would love a Prototype 3 that combines the virtues of both games (or even an updated version of the original that uses the tighter controls from the second).

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Doing a play-through with a friend who's never finished it before. The game was a bit rushed and rough around the edges, but it more than makes up for it in sheer visceral over the top fun. I can't wait to see what my friend makes of the ending; where things get REALLY crazy.
I played the first game in 1994, in the video arcade section of a bowling alley and it blew my young mind. I had it on console by the time I moved into my first apartment. There was a paralyzing snowstorm that year and as it was the only game we owned, my girlfriend (now wife) and I got very good at it. A friend kept trying to beat Heihachi and finally gave me the control pad in frustration. I beat him in ten seconds, with one hand, with a perfect. (It was with Michelle though, and in Tekken 1, it was obscenely easy to perform her 10-hit combo.) My wife has a similar story, and how my brother was strutting about his unbeatable Tekken prowess and she curbstomped him effortlessly. Her story is even better because he's so cocky and she's so mild-mannered.
The same friend managed a Gamestop (I think they might have still been called Babbages back then) and he brought over a copy of Tekken 2 before it was released and we played it all night and drank beer (and Zima, because it was the 90s) and sat on the roof and did all the things young people do.
I've got a lot of fond memories of the series is what I'm saying.
I took off today so I'd be able to spend all day playing it
Tekken 7 continues the tradition of being needlessly complicated and kinda dopey ("Heihachi, you have reclaimed leadership of the Michima Zaibatsu. What are you going to do now?" "Throw a fighting tournament, doy."). So I love it, obviously. They added an exorcist to the roster, because of course they did. I love how they throw in whatever dumb thought comes into their heads, without any consideration for how it meshes with anything else. That's why it's the BEST!
Took out a 3 month PlayStation Plus subscription to play Friday the 13th, can i mute the mic & not have to interact with strangers though as the last time i did online gaming i got into a huge argument & basically don't want that aggravation.
