    I'm playing Thieves in Time now. I'm not having a whole lot of fun.

    Why... is there a Dual Destinies image?

    Usually the first and last article slides are "honorable mentions" of sorts.

    Puppeteer is still on my list of games to buy! It;s retarded that sony FINALLY release the demo this month when they should've done that back in aug-sep.Now they realize they should've sell lots more by making it noticeable on psn

    I just found Guacamelee free on PS+ yesterday! I played a few hours, it was awesome sauce! I will complete it.

    5/7 are PlayStation exclusive. What's up with that?

    Turns out, Sony's first-party studios made a bunch of great games that either had unfortunate release timing, or just didn't make that big of a splash :P

    Trust me, I have not forgotten Ni No Kuni. Best game in the last few years!

    I played the hell out of Ni No Kuni and enjoyed every minute of it.

    I'm trying to play through it right now. I'm around 17 hours in, and it still feels like I'm in the tutorial. Drippy still tells me exactly what I need to do, even though I've done it 30 times already. And there are just so many cutscenes. The parts of the game where I can just run around and play uninterrupted have been great though.

    I expected to love Ni No Kuni, but I abandoned it a few months ago and I'm lacking the enthusiasm to ever finish it. The beginning was loaded with too many cut scenes and the hand-holding didn't stop for a very long time. This was exasperated by Mr. Drippy and Oliver who had these circular conversations that went like: "Ollie-boy, put that stone on the pedestal and the door will open!" "The door will open if I put the stone on the pedestal?" "It sure will Ollie-boy! The door will open if the stone goes on the pedestal!" "If you say so, Mr. Drippy. I'll just put the stone on the pedestal and the door will open." "Now you got the right idea, Ollie-boy!" Okay, that's a slight exaggeration, but honestly, sometimes it felt like our hero was incredibly dense. Or, the developers thought us gamers couldn't be counted on to figure out basic puzzles and mechanics. Yet, the combat in the early areas could be tough. Later you get an option to have all your characters defend, but that would have been appreciated much earlier. It was a weird contrast, the juvenile dialog and the challenging combat. It wasn't until around hours 20-25 I felt the game's tutorial was over and the game became somewhat fun. You get a ship and the freedom to start exploring other places. Party management in combat was easier with the "defend all." The player can begin collecting and leveling familiars. (I got the sense collecting all the familiars and unlocking all the trophies was a grindfest, padding the game's length.) As you said, the portions you can run around play uninterrupted are the best. A shame you have to put in so many dull hours to get to the good stuff.

    "I expected to love Ni No Kuni, but I abandoned it a few months ago and I'm lacking the enthusiasm to ever finish it" I fear I'm in the same boat. I'm only playing it maybe 2 hours a week now. What little game time I get these days is usually taken up by BF4. I've got The Last of Us coming as a Christmas present, and I feel like if I don't finish it before I start playing that, I will never go back to it.

    Gunslinger is actually a very solid shooter with an interesting mechanic for delivering the story. While it's easily the best COJ game, that's not saying much. I'd just say a good game in it's own right. It doesn't need the COJ title attached honestly. Also, it's on sale on X-Box Live this week for like $3.75. Helluva deal.

    I almost forgot Killer is Dead. I don't care that I'm a girl and I was really excited for it, I am a Suda 51 fan :P

    What has your sex got to do with anything?
  • g1rldraco7 - December 9, 2013 11:38 p.m.

    Because most people find it weird and are very judgemental.
  • MonsterBeatle - December 10, 2013 12:24 a.m.

    Fair enough. Feminism ftw!
  • Dewritos - December 10, 2013 12:04 a.m.

    People(feminazis) complain about how Suda51 games depict women
  • MonsterBeatle - December 10, 2013 12:28 a.m.

    People have good reason to.
