Skyrim - Finished the main quest, civil war and a few odd sidequests here and there so I consider it "beaten".

Morrowind - I tried that graphics overhaul mod and it was so overdone I could barely see where my character was stepping. Went with a combo made of texture replacers, code patch and mge xe without those crappy post processing effects. Looks good without loosing the feel of the game.

Long live to the wikipedia dialogue.

.hack//SIGN is really good, excellent character-driven series. Not to mention the terrific soundtrack. Can't go wrong with that one, unless you want something action packed.

I find Yama a little boring (moreso than a G-rank Lao run) but Ukanlos is a blast every time.  Whenever I go back to running monsters with old hunting buddies it's usually a lot of Rajang, Teostra, and Ukanlos.  Fatalis just isn't any fun. 

Oh no, worse than Lao? :( I've been waiting to fight him since I saw this cute pic. Yama is like the series Cthulhu.

Went back to my trusty PSP since the 3DS went kaput (and I barely played the thing, thanks Nintendo.) Anyway, picked up MH Freedom Unite again and have been tearing through HR8 monsters. Looking forward to Yama and Ukanlos.

Christ, what have I started?

Some kind of RPGFan .Hack fest, that's what.

Oh, the evil you've unleashed upon The World!

Seriously, it's nice to meet another fan. Didn't know you mentioned the games a few pages back, thought no one cared about the franchise anymore.

Why is the PS4 selling so much? I've been out of the loop about consoles since the beginning of the PS3 days, when the reception was lukewarm at best.

I've been on a .hack mood lately so I gave .hack//Infection a go (again). Gameplay is god awful but the lack of teenage drama makes it so much better than GU.

Come to think about it, it's curious how CC2/Bandai never released a .hack collection for the PS3, considering the prices of the games nowadays. Would be pretty practical and affordable to have IMOQ + GU in one disc. Then there's still Link, Versus and Guilty Dragon left...

I miss the PS2 days, when most Japanese games were localized.


Recently slogged through almost 100 hours of FFXII.  That game somehow managed to be a fat giant turd and impossibly addictive at the same time.

Ha, welcome to the club. I spent an unholy amount of time doing the hunt quests or whatever they were named and I didn't even like the game.

Finished Saints Row 4. Yeah, I'm disappointed with this one.

I loved the references to the past games, but it didn't feel like a SR game. I think it was the emphasis on the sci-fi stuff and the super powers, too out of the place. The main campaign was weak and the humor was hit or miss, whereas SR2/3 were spot-on. Gameplay-wise, the novelty of the powers wore off fast and it got dull in a way the past games didn't.

Yup. Not to mention there are companions and henchmen you can hire to fill the gaps in your party.

It's a fantastic game, the praise and hype is well deserved in this case. I'm impressed by the class(less) system and the many ways you can manipulate the battlefield to your favor.

Soundtrack is stellar too.

Divnity: OS - Gameplay seems to be excellent from what I've played and the interactivity with the scenary sets it apart from almost all RPGs I've played. True to a Larian game, the dialogues are funny/witty: couldn't help but smile when an enemy was complaining about arthritis. Had to tear myself away from the computer or I'd keep playing.

I just played SR3 for a couple hours on my /NEW NEXT GEN CONSOLE/ from eight years ago. I'm thinking about rebuying SR2, since that doesn't really work right on my laptop either.

Actually it would be a good idea to get SR2 for the PS3/360. Even beefier PCs have problems with the game, be it modded with GotR/Powertools. Not to mention the muffled audio. Sometimes I think it's unsalvageable.

It's a fun game and (imo) the best in the series, but the port was a shoddy work.

I got a game breaking bug in Fallout NV at about midway in...
That pretty much killed any drive I had about playing the game for a second time =(

Oh well, not like I'm low on stuff to play at the moment.

Sorry to ask, but what was the problem? If you're playing on PC you might be able to fix it via console.

Saints Row 4 is killing me, so good. Glad it run decently on my aging pc.

What's up with these Steam community votes? Ikaruga, Expeditions, Divinity OS all lost. Unbelievable. I'll probably buy this stuff tomorrow and be done with the sale.

Skyrim modding adventures - Ditched Requiem, I don't have patience to level grind anymore nor want to exploit the system. Skyrim Redone has too many perks of the kind "increse x by %" which I'm not fond of. Settled on Sperg + Deadly Combat + Morrowloot and did some fine tunning with SkyTweak. So far, so good.
