I started Leon B today. It's good so far though I still hate Mr X.

I completed Leon B today:

Image

It was quite good, though I have some major nitpicks with it. First off, the game is hardly different from Claire A at all. Like you do the same type of quests, fight almost all of the same bosses until the end, and I never truly felt like I was doing different activities from what Claire was doing outside of extra Mr X appearances. In fact,
Spoiler Below:
Annette gets beaten up badly by Birkin in BOTH scenarios but instead of dying beside Sherry in Claire A, she dies after shooting Ada in Leon B. That makes no sense since this scenario is supposed to be based on what Claire did. As such, her getting beat up by Birkin should not have happened with Leon.

I'm also almost certain there were multiple Mr X's running around because one of them got torn up by Birkin when he was going after Claire and Sherry while Leon and Ada had one chasing after them. Speaking of Mr X, the best moment surrounding him was when I left the interrogation room and he smashed right through the wall of the press room. I was like, "OH CRAP CRAP CRAP CRAP CRAP!" and ran back to the interrogation room. I'm not sure if he isn't allowed in that room or if he didn't see me head in there, but he didn't pursue me. I even managed to lose him so I could do the library puzzle without issue.

Oh, and playing ring around the boxes with him when I was Ada was kind of funny.

No idea either how Claire AND Leon both were able to knock Birkin 2 out with the crane when there is no way another freighter could have been attached to the crane.

Anyway, the alligator bit was awesome, especially with how the game built it up. That was a lot cooler than him just appearing out of the blue in the original version.

I also have to say that Birkin 3 is a hell of a lot harder to beat with Leon than he was with Claire as the machine gun does much quicker damage. Now the boss fight the Mr X on the platform was kind of intense while Birkin 5 remained as easy as he was in the original game. The ending itself was quite funny.


Overall, despite my narrative and boss gripes, I highly enjoyed Leon B as much as Claire A. Yeah, having Mr X hound you more times got annoying, but after a while I got used to how he worked and the only time I had trouble with him was in a room where I got attacked by both zombies and lickers. Still not sure it is better than the original, but if the next RE game plays like this, I'm definitely in. Next week I'll start Leon A. Maybe I'll even try to go for those mr Raccoon things.

Yesterday I finished Leon A scenario and then today I started Claire A scenario.

Spoiler Below:
I just beat Birkin for the first time



I also started Spyro Reignited trilogy on the Xbox which is ok so far. I never played the original games so I don't have the nostalgia factor that some people do with the game.

Once I finish Claire A I'm going to take a break from RE2 for a bit and beat a few other games then come back to RE2 to do Leon B and Claire B in the summer or something. Or maybe I'll save those for closer to the inevitable RE3 remake.

Why would you do Leon A and Claire A? It should be Leon A and then Claire B. You don't get the actual ending of the game with Game As.

I want to see Claire's point of view from her A story. There are slight differences between Leon A and Claire A and I'm well aware that you don't get the true ending on Claire A and that to get it you have to play Leon B or Claire B.

I just finished Claire A tonight about 20 minutes ago. Going to hold off to do the B scenarios until probably the summer.

Kain on a side note you JUST missed getting unlimited hand gun ammo by 6 minutes.

I must have just missed that lol. :oops:

I tried starting the first Spyro game from the Reignited Trilogy and its just not clicking with me. I made it to the third world and I for some reason cannot get into it right now. I like the visuals of the game and stuff but man its a chore.

So I've decided to start Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice instead. Its an interesting gam so far.

I don't know why, but I never was able to get into Spyro at all. I thought the first game was okay, but I never bothered with the sequels. I always found Crash to be the superior of the two Playstation Mario-esque series.

I think Crash is superior but I liked Spyro and still do. I have the new re-releases, but haven't touched them yet...I only play a couple hours a week these days, and I'm still slowly working my way through Dragon Ball FighterZ. The story mode is frankly too long. I like the game overall because I'm a fan of the franchise, but the difficulty takes a LONG time to start even KIND OF ramping up...the story mode could be cut in half. I've played like, 12, 13 hours of it and I'm like 2/3 of the way done.

Yeah I don't know why I just can't get into Spyro right now so I'm going to probably revisit it in the summer.

After I finish Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice I'm going to try Yakuza 0 out. Then I'll move on to Batman Arkham Origins on Xbox One via BC.

I am now officially done with the game since I just completed Claire B.

Image

I have to say, I feel like Claire got weaker in her B scenario compared to her first because like I was at full health at one point, a zombie bit me once, and suddenly I'm on Danger. Even Birkin 3 hit me once at full health to knock me on Danger. It got quite annoying. I didn't think I was going to have any health items left by the time I got to the end of the game.

This was a damn good game, even if it wasn't perfect. Replaying the game with the original's soundtrack was so damn awesome and I loved the 98ish styled costumes I used on my second playthrough. I hope they manage to remake RE3 and make it this good instead of the action oriented Bayplosion fest of the original. With that said, see you later Raccoon City as Spider-Man has been calling my name.

I decided to hunt down the remaining Mr Raccoons yesterday since I learned you can just load up previous saves and take them out. The only major work I had to do was going through the joys of getting into the clocktower to get to power panel so I could get the Mr Raccoon in the gator lair. Now I have the infinite knife, started a Claire A game and stabbed it into the first zombie I encountered without thinking about it being stuck in him. DOH!!! No my best moment.

I did eventually get it back, but still.

I'm trying to do the Claire orphanage glitch so I can ensure I finish the game in time to get the infinite ammo hand gun, but I keep screwing up. At one point I ended up stuck in an elevator shaft. In another, I got stuck in the room Leon acquires the club key from. The next time I made it outside of the police station, but since the zombies aren't around to bash open the fence, I couldn't get to the orphanage that way either. After that, I ended up in the dark room save room. Finally, the last attempt it worked I got traped outside of the police station in the path you use in Scenario 2.

Now I'm deteremined to get this damn thing to work as my stubborness will not let up.

I didn't quite get the glitch to work the way I wanted, but I at least was able to skip the first boss fight, which shaved off a lot of time. I beat the entire game in just under 3 hours.

I beat Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice the other day and thought it was an amazing game. It's a hard game to play not because its difficult but because you basically play as a character with a mental illness. That being said I highly recommend the game to everyone since its worth playing and its on every newer platform, well it'll be coming to Switch next month I think.

I was trying to decide if I wanted to start Batman Arkham Origins for 360 (will be on the Xbox One via BC) or Metro Last Light and I decided to start Last Light. Not very far into the game just past the tutorial level basically.

I heard it was a great game, but unless they release it physically, I'm not going to touch it unless it becomes a PS+ free game.

So I played the three Ghost Survivor missions and I'm disappointed. They're basically the same type of gameplay as the Hunk/Tofu missions, and I suck ass at those, so I suck ass at these. I can see why they are free, so I can't complain there. I was just hoping for something story based since that is what they were making at least Kendo's game sound like it was going to be.

In fact, I suck so badly I can't even beat Kendo's mission on training. :lol I did beat the ones for Katherine and Ghost on training though.

I finished Metro Last Light Redux on Xbox One Friday then today I "beat" Pokémon Lets Go Eevee. By beat I mean I completed the main story and caught Mewtwo which you get post game. I still need to get about 15 Pokémon then I'll have a complete Dex.

Not sure what I'll start now I'm thinking something on PS4 or might go to Arkham Origins. After I beat the next game I'll be restarting Zelda Breath of the Wild. I have some amiibo cards coming in so I can get all the extras from the amiibos I don't have which are to pricey to buy.

I FINALLY started Spider-Man today and jesus is this game friggin phenomenal. I couldn't put it down. In fact, I had to force myself to stop playing about 20 minutes ago (started around 2PM). I completed all of the thug crimes, collected every backpack, did all of the towers, Kingpin construction sites, and landmarks, and now I'm working on the Harry research centers. Story wise, Norman just shut down Otto's operation and now I have to go after Shocker again.

The only frustrating things I have with it so far is the combat (I just can't figure it out, so I've been dying a lot when I'm surrounded by several goons) and that stupid ass mission where I had to chase after some pigeons. Good god was that friggin annoying as hell.

Oh, and I loved Peter's Spider-Cop dialog.

BTW, did anyone else catch the little homage to GTAIV? I had to stop a crime where some dude named Niko tells his henchman to grab Roman and head to the casino.

Spent more time in Spider-Man today. I had to catch some damn pidgeons again, tracked down stuff revolving around Black Cat, took on a few more story missions, wiped out all of the Devil gang's crimes (which were utterly repetitive), and finished Harry's research missions.

So I need to ask, will I be running in to more base operations? I ask because I'm down to 4 base coins but I've got like 8 items that require them, which doesn't make sense mathematically unless there are more of them.

LEGO DC Supervillains keeps bringing out DLC, so it's not gonna get truly "beaten" until they all come out.

The LEGO Movie 2 Game was a lot different than the previous LEGO games, it's a LOT like LEGO Worlds, but not quite as boring.

Even though I beat as much as I am going to do, I still build stuff in Dragon Quest Builders.
I decided to start over in the free build area, and built a neat village with a castle nearby.

Of course I continued Spider-Man, but boy do I suck ass at the Taskmaster challenges. For one thing, I don't understand how I'm supposed to rank up enough points to reach the gold. Like I beat a few of the stealth missions without getting caught, but I still just barely managed to score a silver medal in either of them. I was only able to get silver in one of the bomb and combat challenges. As for the drones, it seems like you can miss a single checkpoint which is impossible if you're trying to keep up with the drone itself.

I did clear out all of the Demon bases though and I visited Uncle Ben's grave. Also met Miles.

Well I platinumed Spider-Man today. That last bit was damn good, but I did get a little tired of the crimes going on. There was no need to have both the prisoners and Sable soldiers with 5 each. It could have easily been either 3 of each or just had more Sable bases instead of doing the Sable crimes altogether. Regardless, the game was fantastic though I got through it a lot quicker than I anticipated. I expected to be playing it for at least another week before finishing it. RDR2 it is not. Well, at least I have the DLC (which I downloaded this morning) to go through.

The story itself was really good and I loved the way they spun their own mythos into the game. I'm also shocked with the ending and am curious to see how things are going to play out now.

I do hope we get Mysterio, Sandman, Green Goblin, and Kraven in the next game. I would love to see Hobgoblin too, but at this point he would be best saved for the third one. Nevertheless, the game was pure joy as web slinging was a lot of fun and I look forward to see what the DLC has to offer. That I'll probably start later on this week.
