What I've been playing, July 2019

Hello Pixleburritos!

It’s very hot here today and I’m hiding in the airconditioning trying to not turn into a crispy critter. Which is unfortunate because the PS4 is in the other room and all I want to do is smother myself in Dragon Quest Builders 2.

So, what have I been playing since my last update? I SHALL TELL YOU.

First off, I had review copies of two games. The first being Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. I have a whole review written up over here, so I’m not going to go too deeply into it.

The other review code was for SolSeraph, which is reviewed over here. 

Then Dragon Quest Builders 2 came out and fixed nearly every single problem I had with DQB1. I’ve been playing it almost exclusively and just finished the second island. 

GUYS. Guys. This game is so fucking good, you guys!

I fell off DQB1 very hard about halfway to a quarter of the way through. The lack of permanence to your world stung. In the new game you are given an island that isn’t just some tacked on thing. It still has requests and mini-quests, and it’s large and you are free to change it all to your heart’s desires. You recruit people, animals, bring back materials. This is in addition to the other islands with their own quest/story lines.

My only real complaint is that the DLC is expensive and should have been in the game, and that some room requirements are still obtuse. 

I’ll have to build up my island more, but I’m playing on PS4 and you should totally come and join me. I’ll have to take some screenshots to share.

Bloodstained's graphics look glorious. SolSeraph looks interesting too. I played the PS4 demo for DQB2 and liked it. I'll get a copy eventually.

I see you weren’t crazy about Solseraph.  That seems to be the consensus. 

I downloaded the demo for DQB2 but I haven’t played it yet. I’m torn between that and the new Fire Emblem which looks great. 

Yeah I’m ready for summer to end already. I like cool weather like in spring or fall.

We get about a week of Spring around here. Winter doesn't really get going until January then lasts through April. Then we get a week of Spring in May then BAM! It's summer. Fall is great though.

I have the first DQB game on PS4. SolSeraph looked interesting but got pilloried in the reviews.

Yeah, I hear it's been hot out there, and with the humidity, that makes it like the heat in Texas or Oklahoma.

I have the original DQB for Vita but burned out on it early. I bought the second one the day it came out and have been playing a lot. I'm trying to figure out how to climb up to Pastor whatisname's cabin right now but I spent a lot of time cooking for the greedy little (human) pigs at the farm. Seems they are always running out of food.

That and rebuilding my front wall every time there is an attack. I do like it much better than the first one though.
