Play a Game? (Game tracker)

Recommended Posts

Looks like it's almost been a year since I was in this thread. I got myself to continue a Wind Waker HD session I have been poking at since I got a Wii U. I have to say playing with the gamepad pro controller is relaxing, while the Wii U Gamepad is wild with all the options. It's like an advanced edition of playing on the Gamecube with a GameBoy Advance.

I have mentioned being a Legend of Zelda fan before. Wind Waker is a long game, however some of the longer parts of fetch quests have been decreased from the Gamecube to Wii U edition. Weapon quests and a near-end game item quest went from 8 items to 5, as an upgrade tree dropped the prerequisite drops from 20 to 10. Legit helpful changes.

Also along changes (that I hardly used) are the in-game statue decor from photos. Also along the in-game camera lines, you can add pictures and posts to Miiverse. Normally if I want to grab a photo to upload, I'll press the HOME button then make a Miiverse post and the image will also be attached.

Jolly October! I have been keeping busy and trying to find time to relax. Lots of stuff to check out locally and some travel in the mix, along with the old exploration stuff. I figure I will bite when the new Zelda game drops, because I'm a sucker for a good sequel in an enjoyable universe. I also have the Orcale of (Seasons and Ages) on my 3DS and the original GBA carts. I did one play thru but never got around to wrapping up the other one. Finding my clear code will be an adventure, I'm sure.

2016-11-18 note. I am borrowing a friends PS4 to test play Watch Dogs 2. In exchange he is borrowing my gaming PC. Friendly heads up, they will be on my steam account this weekend, potentially until after Thanksgiving.

 

So I also get to see a PS4 hands on. Woot.

Been a few on this thread. I still have a Wii U but I main on PC currently. I'm skipping the Switch console, traded in my 3DS, PS3. I still have a NES, SNES, Gamecube, PSP and of course, PCs.

I was going to pickup Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but amazon botched the shipping date and I canceled my pre-order for Wii U. Maybe after it releases, hopefully get a little sale, and is confirmed a good port on Wii U.

I have a trip to chill with gamer crew coming up and have some games loaded up.

  • Vampire Bloodlines on the Unofficial Patch
  • Prototype 2
  • Shadowrun Dragonfall
  • Final Fantasy XIV
  • Ghost Recon: Wetlands - This is looking cool. Might pick it up on release.
  • Watch Dogs 2
  • GTA V. Might play some matches locally.



That'll due nice for LAN mode. Throwback DosBox era games are always on the table. ;)

Welcome to another October!  I have been taking a VR break replaying Zelda: Breath of the Wild.  The Switch version and portability is a huge benefit for my lunch breaks and being able to play in other rooms of the house without sitting at my desk.  I resisted the console at first, but I have to say it's really good, even with the lack of integrated applications at the current time.
I have to admit I got a 2DS handheld, pretty much for Culdcept Revolt.
I also picked up Metroid: Samus Returns.  It's a good game but mildly difficult.  Think in vein to Castlevania style gameplay (classic-vania).  I was also able to re-download my eShop purchases so I have lots of Zelda, Pushmo and some older Mario games on there.

VR wise I'm going to try and get some custom projects done for fun.  Nothing too crazy, more like concepts and figuring out how to manage the 3D assets outside of VR as well.

I picked up Cave Story+ and Splatoon 2 along with Mario Kart 8 on the Switch, but Zelda has been my main time game.  I have all the memories and Master Sword, so I could beat it again but I also have a good bit of the DLC 1 pack to explore.  Quite a bit of temple exploration is what I'm up to now, bumping into my stamina bar, but knowing I need more than 13 hearts to hang with the fierce challenge modes.
Mario Odyssey shall be mine on Thursday night. :)

Outside of games, I lightly dabble in DevOps with Ansible and adding more Powershell to my skillset.  Dorking around in Linux is more of a priority though.  I get plenty of Registry and GPOL windows experience in my day job.

Mainly Heroes of the Storm, a free MOBA from Blizzard based on their series of games (Diablo, WoW, Overwatch, Starcraft).
Whatever Steam games I picked up on sale and have time to play.
Breath of the Wild (though haven't had time to use the switch much since July)

Thanks to an early birthday gift I am now dabbling in the art of video capture over HDMI.  Elgato HD60 S is a quality capture device with HDMI pass-through, so you can play directly on a display, or in the Game Capture HD window while recording or streaming.  Anyways, I also have a Twitch.tv page up with some PC and console recordings.
I'm not really into the whole talking over gameplay, so I either mix in music or just let it go with game audio.

I'm still mainly playing on Switch and PC currently so the below upcoming titles reflect this.

Switch

  • Okami Switch - 2018-08-09. Never got to play this out yet. 
  • Captain Toad Switch - July 13th.  Extra Levels over the Wii U version and this is one of my favorite games.  Tablet mode on the switch will be way better than it was on Wii U.
  • Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition - 2018-05-18.  I played this before on Wii U but am getting this for all the DLC and portability along with performance improvements.
  • Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King - This is out.  I'm just waiting to pickup once I finish another game or two.
  • Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate - Aug 28th.  This is a localized port of Monster Hunter XX Double Cross from Japan.
  • Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes - I loved these games so the next one is a natural pickup for me.
  • The World Ends With You - Another DS port I never got to play. 
  • Bloodstained - Kickstarter that is looking to ship semi-soon but with no confirmed date.

PC

  • Monster Hunter World (PC) - Sometime this Fall 2018 but they need to design the online topology for PC so it may be delayed.

I'm currently playing Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.  Thank goodness for Funky Kong mode because the levels can kick my ass around a bit.  I'm on the 5th world currently and I think the Mine Cart levels are some of the hardest.  Level design is enjoyable and the boss fights are pretty distinct too.  Haha you can see me get smacked around a bit on my Twitch streams I have archived.  I finished main game this week - 2018-05-16.  Some frustrating moments but a good time.  Enjoyable platformer indeed.  I have some hidden levels to find and finish up.

Beat Saber is pretty fun.  It's a VR title where you slash blocks and avoid obstacles like a Guitar Hero like game.  There is also a modding community that is pretty sick and likely to keep that game popular for quite some time.  I enjoy VR but it needs to continue getting quality developers making content.  The downside is most devs are not really flipping a ton of profit for their work and time.  Hopefully VR adoption picks up over time.  I know the Oculus Go dropped recently but that's more of a mobile VR platform (GearVR) than it is a desktop graphic and interaction capacity.
