It was pretty decent but I expected it to be short just like a movie.

That said I don't think I'll be playing anymore monster hunting games in the near future between Toukaiden and God Eater Resurrection. I don't think they are for me. Just fighting the same few bosses again and again isn't really something I find fun at all. So painfully repetitive.

ReCore was actually a really fun game, there wasn't much in the way of stories which is the biggest minus. The main point of the game is to found the hidden gems around the dungeons or world map. You need to collect 45/75 to finish the game and unlock the final parts of the story. Despite this it never really feels like a chore because I found the battle system to be fluid and easy to get the hand off. The last dungeon was challenging though a mixture of lasers, moving/twisted/fading paltform jumping. It felt good to finally reach the end. All three bots can be nicely customized as well with a lot of different looks by finding blueprints that are also dotted around the world.

The ending credits to World Of Final Fantasy are something special (no story spoilers)

Played through Valley. Thought it was really good. Short though.

I had a fairly bad year this year, especially towards the end.

I'm extremely behind the games I bought, I get distracted and busy too much. Overwatch is too much fun for me... I always get a urge to play it than the other games I should be playing lol

You're slacking, man!



Pretty cute game, really worth the time investment for that Chrono Trigger nostalgia. Hope they can release more games (but at a lower price).

I did alright but a little disappointed towards the end of the year. Never did either of my targets this year (finishing off my remainder of my GBA/Import PS2/PS1 games)

2016
XboxOne: 56
PC: 27
PS4: 16
Xbox360: 4
DS: 3
PS Vita: 2
Snes: 2
PS3: 2
3DS: 1

Need to spread my love around more next year but there are some many good games to play on the XB1 at the moment. It's going to be difficult.
