YES! I live on her roof
^ Yes. You must have that update as soon as possible. It is a must for you to play the recently released games.

As for PKMN X and Y, by using the Player Search System, I can see a lot of trainers that are connected to the internet and "pass them by". I wonder if Keiko is among them... :ayashii:


I just finished Until Dawn and I'm playing Metal Gear Solid 5 now.
My PSN-ID: ask me ^^

Playing Ys I+II for the most part now.

I'm also playing Grandia II Anniversary Edition which was recently released as a PC version. From what I've heard it was originally on the Dreamcast which makes it even more fun to be playing a JRPG from back then.


I play a lot of different games. I have Xbox 360 and Playstation 4, and thus, I usually play console games. I do have a few games on this Macbook Pro of mine, but this piece of junk is really not for gaming T_T I need a new computer...

At the moment, I'm really into The Witcher series, Mass Effect series, Assassin's Creed series and Bethesda's RPGs. Although the past few days I've played nothing but Chrono Cross, which I have on my computer. Totally legally downloaded. Shhhhh.

Can anyone suggest some metroidvania/castlevania/platforming games which aren't hardcore platformers or combat focused (I panic easily)?
PC/keyboard preferrably.

Some examples:
Alwa's Awakening/Alwa's Legacy
Hollow Knight (a little too Souls-boss-heavy but the exploration made up for it in spades, patiently waiting for sequel)
Ori and the Blind Forest/Will of the Wisps
Shantae #2+#3 (#4 Half-Genie Hero sucked, waiting for #5 to get some serious discount)
Song of the Deep
Steamworld Dig 1+2
Castlevania Symphony of the Night
Bloodstained (a very stale redux of the above)

Some others that I remember trying:
Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human (those bosses... yikes...)
Aquaria (I don't even remember why I quit but I've no intention of going back - I recall not being able to skip the intro)
Dandara (mouse controls in panic ragequit)
La Mulana (got somewhat deep into the game but then I couldn't make head or tails of the puzzles and didn't want to use a guide)
Guacamelee! (I got pretty far but couldn't get past one boss battle where you had to quickly ?transform?change colors? to block/attack - way too many buttons to keep track of on keyboard controls in panic)
Outbuddies DX (rather enjoyed it but - ashamed to admit - I couldn't get past the first big boss due to controls and panicking, might try again)


I like Yuki
@grunty Celeste is an awesome platformer. Very manageable difficulty and the story is also pretty touching (deals with stress/panic/anxiety)


I like Yuki
I'll try it. I was under the impression it was more on the hardcore side.
The game is definitely brutal if you're obsessed with 100% completion. If story mode is all you care about, it's actually not too bad.

I remember trying Shovel Knight at some point. Before any of the DLC were out, I think. Don't remember why I quit... I probably sucked at pogo jumps lol.
