Game Collection Roundtable 11/09/2015: Call of Duty: Black Ops III (PS4), Dragon Fin Soup, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC (PC)

Every week, the Diehard GameFAN team adds new games to their collections. Sometimes they are new releases, physical or digital, DLC or full games, but they are all building blocks in our greater collections.

I picked up a ton of (well, seventeen – but for only twenty bucks total!) games during Steam’s Halloween sale and with GOG having a big one right now, I might be picking up some more. My Kickstarter backed Game Boon Hill also came in and I played the hell out of that.

Dungeons & Dragons: Sword Coast’s Adventurer’s Guide – review copy sent to me. One of my three last reviews (not counting photo blogging)

Warhammer: Age of Sigmar -Battletome: Seraphon. My Lizardmen get a massive remake as starfaring incarnations of pure Order. Another book I’ll be reviewing.

I haven’t bought a game in a good while, honestly (college sucks) but I did download and try out Dragon Fin Soup since it’s essentially Shiren the Wanderer in theory, and I loved the hell out of that. In practice it’s… not quite that, but if you like roguelikes it’s worth playing, and if you don’t, it’s going to make you break a controller. If you’re a fan of roguelikes, it’s still kind of wonky; the folks on the Steam Marketplace pointed out, for example, that the UI is kind of horrid and the viewing angle relative to the game world obstacles is a pain, and I have to agree; having to manually move objects around to their slots by holding Square is inane, and having foreground decoratives obscure your view of the map is a pain in the ass. I also wish the game explained more, as on the PS4 at least, it would’ve been nice to know that pressing the touchpad advances time up front. Still, as a roguelike, I kind of love it even so, and it’s a good time if you like that kind of game.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III (PS4) – As of this writing, the game is still two days out, but I am stoked! I absolutely adored Black Ops II, and Treyarch getting an extra year to develop its sequel sounds exceedingly promising. I will be playing the crap out of this very soon. That’s a promise.


Madson

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC (PC) – After playing the first part last year, I’m glad I didn’t have to wait all that long to get the next half of the story. Looking forward to watching the hours getting sucked into a Trails black hole.

In the last week on Steam I picked up Costume Quest 1 and 2, Dropsy and Undertale.


Kess

Call of Duty: Black Ops III (PS4)

Also the PS Plus Lineup. I am stoked to try Dragon Fin Soup. Haven’t gotten there yet, life got in the way.

They’re not really new (both were summer releases) but I picked up for the Vita, Xblaze: Lost Memories and Amnesia: Memories because EVERYONE told me that it’s finally on sale on PSN after ten thousand years (…three months). With The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel being pushed to December, I’m hoping November will be a light month
