I've been pirating A LOT.

I think I need to break it up a bit. What would be a good complement to Blag Flag?

Deadly Premonition, RE4, Dragon's Dogma, FF IX, or should I buy Mr Driller-land, Shinsekai, or something else?

Play DP now if youíre planning to play the sequel in 2 weeks. Absolutely buy Mr. Driller too. Itís a game I see myself coming back to a lot.

If you're thinking about playing them close together I can't think of anything worse than playing Deadly Premonition right after RE4 so I'd start with the former

Sounds like he's sort of lost the voice a bit, and like he's doing a younger version of York. I think after a little while he'll sound fine.

The York sections are a prequel so it makes sense for York to sound like that.

I wish it was on sale. It's still the full $60. I'm replaying Hollow Knight, so maybe by the time I'm done, it'll be on sale.

Did you like the game?

I've beaten Ys 8. It was enjoyable and a fun action rpg. I would advise not getting it on Switch if you can, but the switch port is perfectly playable. It has a few performance issues that the other versions don't have. I liked the game enough to pretty much do everything in it.

SoR4. I haven't played the other, but I have played SoR4 a ton and it's amazing. It's the pinnacle of the genre.

Rupert Buttermilk posted:

It's an excellent game, but would it complement fun pirate times? I'll give it a shot, it moves literally a lot slower compared to AC but it's way more action paced. I'll admit I do not know what I mean by complement. I feel like DP needs my full focus to keep the story intact.

It's why I thought of just getting Mr Driller, since it's arcadey. Fun bursts of little but importantly distinct action with no plot investment to it. Just a way to break up being a pirate if I begin to overwhelm myself.

Remember when Sony fans got up in arms over a puddle. Insomniac's response was to turn the puddle into a sticker for photo mode, so people could put in as many puddles as they want, lol. Puddles.

D4 is another game by the same director as DP thatís on Xbox One and PC only. Itís a episodic point and click adventure type game that he was never able to finish and thereís some hints that DP2 may be connected to it as well.

Under your current criteria I really recommend Mr. Driller. Thereís so many modes including really more casual relaxing ones.

I popped in the GC version of Wind Waker last week and the camera stick controls are inversed to what every game today uses. Sure it would be way to get used to but it was jarring.

Counterpoint: I'm enjoying RSG much more, despite its flaws. I like the RPG elements, I like tracking down all the different foods and equipment items with weird properties, I like the ridiculous dialogue, I like that it has wider open spaces to fight in, and the sprite animations are some of my favorite I've seen in any game. I just started using Riki in NG+ and holy hell that's stylish.

RSG is alright but for me it's one of those games where after beating it I'll probably not replay it. SoR4 though is so easy to jump in and whoop some rear end.

Also this reminded me of the fact that I only own one GBA game and it's RCR.
