—Demo Review— NieR: Automata DEMO 120161128

I have NIER for 360 but I've barely played it. Honestly, it lost me somewhere early on. Regardless, the clips and trailers for NieR: Automata were just too intriguing for me to ignore. When I saw there was a demo, I grabbed it.

New Loot! (#41) - "Take My Money" Edition

Yet another post in which I tell you of my latest gaming finds...

***Take My Money***
New Loot #41

Yet again, the PC peoples got me with their sales and whatnot. I'm so easy...

From Steam (the Thanksgiving sale they had...I think):

From Steam's Winter Sale (in effect now through Jan 2):
  • Ys I & II Chronicles+ - I've had this on my wishlist for a while. Figured I'd grab it while it was under $5. 
  • Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons - I started playing this on 360 and for some reason never finished it. I'll finish it this time. Plus it was under $3. 
  • Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition - another that's been on my wishlist for a while. Grabbed it for less than $10.
  • Mass Effect - one of hubby's favorite games. Figured I oughtta give it a try when it's under $5. 
  • Mass Effect 2 Digital Deluxe Edition - another of hubby's favorites. Pretty sure he said this was his favorite of the three games that are currently out in this series. It was under $5 in the Winter Sale. Plus Steam let me bundle it with the first game and gave me an extra discount.
  • Final Fantasy VI - 'cause I didn't have it yet. Enough reason and it was half off, putting it under $10. 
  • Tales of Zestiria - yet another from my wishlist that I just couldn't resist in this sale. It was under $15, and well worth it, if the reviews are to be believed. I grabbed one of the DLCs as well. 

From GOG: 
  • The Witcher III: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition - I own so much Witcher crap. Games, books, soundtracks, comics; the list goes on and on. Granted, most of that comes with the digital versions of the games from GOG, but the books I buy as they're translated and released here in the US. Everyone had to know I'd eventually get this game. I had to wait a bit for the price on the GOTY edition to drop. Then it went on sale [again] for $30. Now it's mine. All mine. Mwahahahahaha!!!!!!

GOG gave me (as part of their Monstrous Winter Sale): 
  • D&D Neverwinter Nights Diamond - Seems interesting. This was the game they gave to everyone just for stopping by and checking out the sale. It was free for 48 hours. 
  • Shadow Warrior Classic Redux - was free for getting 5000 points in the Winter Sale. I don't actually have an opinion on this one...
  • Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut - Again, seems interesting. This was the free game for reaching 15k EXP. I bought Witcher III so I got a crap-ton of points.
  • Stasis - Again, no opinion on this one. It was free for getting 30k points. I did that with one purchase. Go me. 

And because I just can't help myself:

Gotten any good games lately? Tell us in the comments. ♥

Until next time...

The Facts About FFXV's New Game+

The series where I share a tidbit or two that you may or may not have already known...

"Did You Know...?" (#2)
Square Enix Introduces
New Game+ Mode for FFXV

Square Enix recently released the first of a series of updates for Final Fantasy XV. One is a new playthrough mode called New Game+. 

Anyone familiar with FF games or RPGs in general is familiar with this mode. For everyone else, it's basically a mode where you can play through the game again, keeping certain levels or items from your previous playthrough. It's cool that Squeenix decided to release this mode as a free update. 

The thing is, as with everything new, there is a lot of misinformation out there pertaining to this new mode. I've started my New Game+ playthrough and here are a few of the first things I've noticed. ▼

What You Missed Wednesday (11/9-12/20)

The series in which I list all the posts from this blog....usually a week's worth. This time it's more...

**What You Missed Wednesday**
November 9 - December 20, 2016

It hasn't been a particularly busy month on the blog, though I've been playing a lot of FFXV, so it's been a really busy month in that sense. Anyway, here's what's happened around here lately...
Until next time...

Movie Monday (#34) - FFXV Hunter Quests

The series in which I share a video or two or three, somehow related to gaming...

***Final Fantasy XV***
Hunter Quests
Movie Monday #34

As is the norm lately, all I'm playing is FFXV. It's such a fun game. And I'm really loving the action RPG-ness of it.

There are these particular side quests called hunter quests. Below you'll find videos of two of them. I'm really bad at blocking, dodging, or parrying. Really, really bad. ▼

Tips N Tricks Tuesday (#16) - Stomping Warlord Nix (Battleborn)

The blog series in which I share some gaming tidbit that may or may not help you in your quest to be a better gamer...

***Stomping Warlord Nix***

Warlord Nix is a mini boss you take on in the second chapter (mission, or whatever they call it) in Battleborn. I play solo, so I need to find ways to defeat bosses without dying. 

I still die. 

A lot. 

In most of the games I play. 

That said, here's what I did recently to defeat Nix without dying, or even taking much damage. ▼

Movie Monday (#33) - FFXV

The series in which I share gaming vidz, or game-related vidz, that may or may not be me playing the game...

***Final Fantasy XV***
Movie Monday #33
Double Feature

I'm here again with a couple short gaming vidz for you, my lovely fellow gamers. I got FFXV on release day and I've been playing ever since. I've already got so many videos it's not even funny. 

Except it is. Funny. I'm getting such a kick outta this game. Burning and electrocuting these guys is HILARIOUS. 😆 See for yourself. ▼

Screenshot Saturday (#36) - FFXV

The series where I share pics of games that I'm playing, or have played, or... well, I guess that's it. 

***Final Fantasy XV***
Screenshot Saturday #36

So, yeah. I pre-ordered FFXV. I just couldn't help myself. It arrived on release day (11/29), and I got to work... 

Bye, Dad. I'll miss you...
