double post. Sorry.

The Stanley Parable is a short game with a bunch of different endings. I got the achievement for beating it a while ago but kept playing to see more. It is fascinating and I still don't know that I've seen everything. It is a total meta mindfuck and I think it's pretty brilliant. I'll probably keep playing it.

The options screen alone made me literally (like, literally literally) LOL.

Continuing my quest to beat story DLC for RPGs I finished a while ago, here comes the first of the two major Witcher 3 DLCs. Both are intended for high level characters that have probably beaten the game, though you do have the option of starting a game already leveled to the appropriate point with gear to match in order to jump to the DLC right away. I have no idea if that lets you do any of the other quest stuff; I already had my end game save available and just used that.

Hearts of Stone starts with Geralt getting a contract to take out a monster in the sewers. Unfortunately, upon striking the killing blow you find out the monster was actually a cursed prince of a foreign land, and his guards who were searching for him show up just as he expires. You get taken in chains aboard their ship to a scheduled execution, but you are bailed out by a mysterious stranger, for a price. Your face gets branded as a sign of the contract, and the rest of the DLC is repaying that price.

Something that I really like about the Witcher games is that it's not just mindless hack and slash. Sure, there's a lot of combat, but just as much comes down to the dialog choices you make and the care you show in investigating things. Geralt is not a mindless killer, but a hunter, and it shows. Hell, one of the major branches of the main quest is to attend a wedding. The story has a good amount of depth to it; you'll probably figure out the major beats before the end, but the nuances are still really good. The whole thing takes about 10ish hours. There's also a few sidequests that you'll come upon during the course of following the main quest. They're all fairly minor diversions, though one explores some more of the overall storyline of the trilogy (specifically, calling back to the events of the first game).

9/4: Megaman X5 (PSX/GCN)
9/5: Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo (PSN/PS3)
9/6: Street Fighter V (PS4)


Taking a quick break from my Megaman X marathon (still got 3 mainline games, two portables, a remake of the first, and a crappy RPG) to play a game I picked up during PSN's flash sale a week or so ago and a really great fighting game.

I really, really like Super Puzzle Fighter. I think my only beef is that I wish there was more to it! I wish there were story elements or some type of narrative. Also, unlockables. The online for the game is pretty barren by now so the game doesn't give you a lot of incentive to play through solo.

As for the fighting game, I finally 'finished' Street Fighter V. To say that I finished means that I completed the main story, the individual story modes for all characters currently released, and survival mode on standard difficulty for all characters currently released. Between the content yet to be made available and the amount of mileage this game's online competition offers, I see this game getting played at least once a week for quite awhile.

Street Fighter V is what I originally wanted Street Fighter IV to be. When Vanilla Street Fighter IV landed, I was turned off by how disconnected it seemed from the legacy of the series. After waiting so many years, it was important for the story to be fleshed out. But Street Fighter IV did not do much at all to draw a line between Street Fighter II and Street Fighter III.

After a few updates and re-releases, SFIV went in that direction and even began to emphasize SFIV's place in a larger universe by tying it so heavily to Final Fight and introducing some SFIII characters. By then, I had already moved on and never got hooked the way I had wanted to.

Street Fighter V had a rocky release too but I deliberately avoided getting it till the story mode was pushed out - and I am glad I did. Street Fighter V does more than tie Street Fighter II to Street Fighter III. It hearkens back as far as Street Fighter Alpha 2 and never misses an opportunity to re-introduce characters and plot elements from Street Fighter Alpha 3 or Street Fighter III: Second Impact. For a kid who threw many hundreds of quarters into arcade cabinets in the 90s, this is an amazing feeling.

Oh, and Street Fighter V is fun to play. Until I get online and have my face smashed within 20 seconds. That, too, is part of the nostalgia, I guess.
The PSTV is amazing.

that's because the PSN/XBLA version only has the arcade mode. The PS1/Sat/GBA/PC version has a lot more to do.

Yeah The Stanley Parable is awesome, hilarious, and just really makes you think. Love it.

Have you played The Beginner's Guide? It is from Davey Wreden one of the guys behind Stanley. I'd like to get to it eventually.

In many ways I like TBG better. Well worth the couple of hours it takes to play, and arguably better/more memorable that TSP.
