This was actually a nice unsettling point and click. I liked the story and once I knew what was going on the story became even better. It did however stutter for me a lot. The music would stutter when certain actions would happen and the people would just stutter too, it was a big annoyance that did slightly ruin my experience. Overall though it was fine

This was actually better then expected. There's always a worry when stuff are based on stories or even a detective type game but this was fun. The puzzles were easy but had some thought to it and its just a decent point and click adventure

I don't think my opinion has really changed from the 1st time. The ai is clunky, the game just gets annoying in the 2nd half but the 1st half is fun. I still like how the zombies are slow and grouped up rather then fast, also that credit song was actually amazing. Overall this was fine a 2nd time and it helped knowing I would need queen wasps

This is a much better game to the original I believe. The ai are 200% better, the psychos are more fun and interesting and it was just so simple racking up deaths. Seriously barely got 5k on the original yet I over doubled that by the time I did this game. There was also just much more missions to do so I didn't spend a whole lot of time just waiting around. Plus its interesting seeing a different variety of zombies showing that now everyone knows they are a thing that they can get stronger. There was some stuff I didn't prefer like the map. It just felt like I was running around the same areas since there's like 3 casinos! It makes sense as Fortune City but it isn't fun just running around these same looking area's. Also why the damn ending fight again. Who knew it could be more annoying, I thought the final boss of the original was just a pain but this one is longer to kill and you got to be cranking at the same time, at least there was no zombies! Oh also this has its own amazing credit song, against everything they have that

The only reviews I've seen as far as I read it just mentioned how boring and grindy it was. I do have to agree with them. I really liked the story but for like 124 missions you are just in the same few areas fighting the same boring monsters. Even the story just gradually got boring since its split into 3 arks. The 1st bit has plenty of story but by the 2nd it becomes very scarce and then the 3rd well hard to even class that as a story. This doesn't even mention the last difficulty which is just pointless, it has those mini hq stories still but they just repeat them. I wouldn't mind if they changed it every time but there really is no point to doing any of the bonus missions.

Before I get into something I liked as well, the achievements are a pain. I wouldn't really say that they are hard just very grindy. Like use the same weapon for 500 missions… I didn't change my weapon once while playing but I still got over 350 missions to grind through, which again are in the same small areas with the same boring creatures. There's nothing to redeem it especially when you get to a point where you have to literally idle minutes for another creature to come out. One point I actually had to wait 5 minutes only to have to wait another 5 just let me finish the damn mission game! No amount of staring at my amazing created character could save me from that

So my final thing I want to mention is the credits. You have you guessed it 3 credits to match 3 stories. However they are pretty good. The credits are worth watching since they have pictures showing what happens between each story. It's nice having that, its easy to get what's happening without being overburden with unneeded info. Anyway I did like the game but it could've been better, the battle does just sink the story in the end and that's not what should be happening

Last minute addition to this if its not obvious. I decided to relisten to the opening but no just not something I want to listen to after this and the opening was a big spoiler. There's a limited amount of story in this game and it reveals a bunch of the major keypoints! Don't even need to play this damn game you can just gradually figure it out on your own


Had some bigger games this week. Right now I’m gonna focus more on my wins so its gonna be a lot of longer games and many many sequels. I’ll try to go continue with my A games still but currently its taking up a lot of time with certain games. Oh and I just noticed my list not only goes from my normal alphabetical order but also its time is in order. Amazing!

I really don’t get the reviews for GOD EATER. Everyone I’ve talked to have complained about how grindy and repetitive it, and the sequel, is yet it’s sitting at very positive. This seems to be yet another game that’s just getting good reviews “because its anime”, which is an art style that seem to make a lot of people forgive any and all faults…. I’ve ended up trying quite a few really bad games that got inflated review scores because of this.

And ah, Dead Rising 2, quite liked that one, still have to get around to playing the first. Although I found myself relying on the swords you get from the Casino right next to your base far more than any crafted things. Crafting required time, and swords were constantly respawning, and better than quite a few crafted items.

I saw swords only once when I got it from a psycho. Gonna be work trying to find all the items I never saw

Also yeah that can happen, god eater really is so grindy and horrible but of course anime = positive. I liked the story but I can’t say I would class the game as a whole as positive but also not negative. Thats what causes problems without that mixed review you just go for positive in the end

The swords are on the walls right near the entrance to the Casino that’s right next to the hideout, so you can just run in, grab some swords, and then go wherever you want after that

oh never noticed. for someone who 100% games I sure don’t pay attention to anything I would need in the future
