Spent a little time with Ryse
. Looks incredible, and I'm still getting the hang of combat...jury is still out.
again today, and after a few hours I think I can pretty safely say it's not my thing. Hey, at least I tried something different.
Already kinda bored with Guild Wars 2
, and I think I'll probably just go back to FFXIV. It's supposed to get a new 24-man within the next couple weeks anyways.
Also picked up Undertale
due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback it's been receiving
. Not quite sure I see what all the fuss is about yet...it seems like a pretty basic retro RPG to me. I'm really early on though, we'll see if it gets better. This piqued my interest though:
Undertale made me grin until my face hurt. Then it broke my heart. And that was just the prologue.
Undertale is a new RPG that just landed on Steam. It’s cut from the same cloth as stuff like Earthbound; that is to say, it’s charming, weird, wacky, and subversive, but not without substance. It might not look like much visually, but it’s no generic “retro” RPG. It can, among other things, lay claim to the unique distinction of being an RPG with plenty of battles, but—if you so chose—almost zero violence. You can engage with pretty much every enemy by talking to them or flirting with them or petting them (there are a lot of dogs) or a ton of other unique interactions that pop up on a per-enemy basis. They’re little puzzles unto themselves, and they’ve left me smiling every time. Or you can mash monsters into paste with your fists. Your call.
You have my full attention Undertale. Let's see where this goes.
And, of course, there was the 62-20 pasting that my Utes put on Oregon last night. That was kinda fun.
