GAMES BEATEN BY THE AJSA (2021)

3 posts in this topic

Another year, another thread. Same deal. Anybody want to bet on when they'll finally fix the DMR in warzone?

Quote from Legolas_Katarn, the AJSA peep who made the last thread. 2020 thread can be found here:  angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/forums/topic/43763-games-beaten-by-the-ajsa-2020/

Let other AJSA members know what games you have finished this year. Post a few words about what you thought of the game, a longer review, a video review or footage, screenshots, etc. Feel free to discuss the games we've beaten or to talk to others about them. For a game to be considered beaten either finish the single player portion of the game or, for games without campaigns (MMOs, sports games, multiplayer only games, etc), play to a point where you have seen what the game has to offer. Not going to be counting DLCs as individual games (as that could get confusing) but feel free to post your thoughts on them as that is also the point of the thread. If it is an expansion that was sold separately or stand alone content like Shogun 2's Fall of the Samurai I will count that. Episodic games will count as one game, not a game per episode, but feel free to mention each one if you want to discuss each episode individually.

 

If you want to see what people thought of a certain game or see how many people have played it you can use the search function near the top right of the page and type in the game's title, just switch the search option to be for this topic.

 

I'll keep track of how many games we each have finished to see who has been playing the most and what our combined total is for the year.

Well since he's most likely having a long2 vacation, might as well have another person open the gate for beating games in 2021! Would love to have you contribute as well. :)

 

1) Getting Over It with whoever that guy's name is, 50 times beaten

Platform: PC

Funny story with this game, after playing Cyberpunk 2077 & realizing there's no new games for a while, I thought to myself "I feel like torturing myself with this game". So I asked my mates that hopefully have this game as an extra CD key so they would give them to me while I give them a game as a fair trade, and so a deal was made. And after HOURS & HOURS of my hand being so sore moving the mouse back and forth because this game's physics engine is FUCKING BULLSHIT, and then realizing after the 3rd time of playing this game that using a PS4 controller actually makes the game WAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY easier, I set a goal to myself to properly beat this game 50 times. And many2 hours later, I finally beat this game for the 50th time & I finally got over it. Here is my last 2 games before I finally put this damn game to rest. It feels SOOOO LIBERATING & WONDERFUL.

2) OMORI

Platform: PC

This game made me had to take a break after beating it because the story is so damn heavy & messed up, but uplifting in the very end, even if it's still gone to a dark path. This game is definitely not a Christmas game, so it's more fitting that this is a 2021 game. Definitely one of the best games of 2021 & a great way to open the year. Here's to the rest of 2021!

3) Hitman 6 season 3 (or Hitman 3)

Platform: PC

The final part of the Hitman 6 season trilogy is finally here, and the great part is this game comes with the entirety of the previous Hitman seasons, just like what Hitman 2 did before but with just 55GB because yay the dev finally found a way to compress files!

 

And just like the previous seasons, you get what you're expecting: more targets, more funny & awesome ways to kill your target, and the conclusion to the lingering story from the previous 2 seasons. One of my favorite mission is definitely mission 2 where you not only can do your usual assassination, but you also get to disguise yourself as a detective & solve a crime that occurred in the residence. Now this is freaking sweet, and you'll be rewarded handsomely by doing this. Solving a crime while committing another crime, how ironic.

 

I gotta say, this season feels very James Bond esque, particularly in the first & final missions of the game. I guess it's IOI's way of preparing us for the upcoming 007 game they're making. I love it! A great conclusion to this chapter of 47 & now I'm hyped to see what the James Bond game is going to be.

 

4) Maneater

Platform: PC

Ahhh yes, this is the game that Gura played at her debut stream. Poor2 Gura never got the chance to finish it...... but I'm gonna finish it for her. :D

This game is a really fun shark simulator game. Think Jaws Unleashed on PS2, but actually great. Movement is awesome because your playable shark is very fast & hits like a truck, eating other animals to level up is really fun, and fighting human coastguard enemies are really fun too cause you can wreck the shit out of them. All the while you do sidequests like collecting various nutrients for your shark, eating unfortunate people who polluted the sea, and finding landmarks in the area which are always silly & some even references films & other underwater related things, like a place which has 3 seashells from Demolition Man, the volleyball from Cast Away, Spongebob's home...... yeah they're really having fun with these.

 

The story framed like a TV show where the episodes follow the adventure of this baby shark that's forcefully extracted from her mother by this shark hunter Scaly Pete, and it's about her eating other underwater sea creatures & evolving to become the ultimate Apex Predator and get her revenge YEAAAAAHHHH, while also showing Pete's POV where both you & he are just one-upping each other in trying to destroy each other's lives.

Throughout the game, Scaly Pete himself got a LOT of damage done to him which actually becomes kind of like when that one persistent orc in Shadow of War/Mordor keeps on pestering you. And throughout the game's story there's 1 big question that's on my mind: why the fuck is this tv show legal? You're showing this shark killing people too on TV/ the internet! Someone please slap some sense to these people who aired this show!

 

5) Atoms

Platform: iPhone

This is a puzzle game where you have to play against other players/cpu. Basically you take turns in placing an atom dot of your color to a grid, and your goal is to spread your atom to the entire board, eliminating the other player's color. It's much easier to just show how it's done

There's nothing more satisfying than to create a chain reaction that makes you spread your color atoms to the entire board like a well planned anime giga IQ move. 

 

6) Sneak Ops

Platform: iPhone

A stealth puzzle game where you have to escape a facility while trying to evade enemy soldiers. Think old school Metal Gear for the MSX but simpler. The enemies have the classic cone of vision like MGS & you can punch them to knock em out, but you can't do it to the heavily armored enemies. With those guys you need a special gun which you can randomly get by getting a ? item which can give you anything from a speed shoe, a taser gun to, well, cardboard box. Cheeky. 

Interesting mechanic this game has though is how you can choose to create checkpoints for yourself, but a stage has a limited amount of it because it requires 20 floppy disks, and you collect them throughout the stages. You have 5 chances to make checkpoints when a level has 10 stages for example, so you gotta strategize on which part you want to do it on. Or ya know, you can just try and be suicidal by not placing any checkpoint & do an entire stage, up to you. Also the missions are randomized, and you get to play a new mission every 24 hours, but they all ended up being almost the same missions that you've played before only with a bit of variations. Good thing it's free so it's fun for what it is.

 

7) Yakuza 7/ Ryu Ga Gotoku 7. NOT Yakuza: Like a Dragon because wtf why do you put both english & Japanese title together like that for the 7th game in the series aosdnofgdogmogmdog

Platform: PC

It's freaking Yakuza through and through, and that's fucking awesome. Yes the combat this time is a turn based RPG with job classes, but this game manages to make it blend extremely well with the world of Ryu Ga Gotoku. I've played this game for 78 hours, mostly to grind my way up the leveling system so I can do the boss fights well, but it's all worth it. It always brings a smile to my face when that high leveled enemy mob that give you so much trouble in the early parts of the game immediately eat shit when you're higher level than them & you do this to ruin their entire day

This is just 1 out of dozens of funny as hell abilities you can do. If you want to see more, you gotta catch em all :D

The story of this game is also pretty damn good, I say one of the best story in the series besides 0, 2 & Judgment. Sure there's a couple of story points that could've been avoided if the characters are just upfront about somethings & not drag it out like a dumbass, but the parts where the game gets real hits you like a ton of bricks, especially the final parts of the game. The new main character Kasuga Ichiban is definitely a great change of pace from the usual Kiryu stoicness. The entire reason why the enemies in this game dress like nutjobs & like a Dragon Quest game is because Ichiban himself thinks of the world as an RPG game even though his other friends are like "what are you on about man" cause they're just seeing things normally, and it's funny as hell. I would love to see what other insane quests he'll do in the future games. 

 

Also fun fact: the voice actor of Wei Shen from Sleeping Dogs voices the main villain of this game, and he channeled his Wei Shen gruffness really well here. There are many past characters from the series returning, and for the dubbed version there's 2 nice returns for characters I will not spoil, sadly no Mark Hammil as Majima URGHHH WHHYYYYYY, but the rest of them did a great job with the English dub. If I played this in 2020, this game would definitely be in my top 5 best games that year. Play this game if you're a Yakuza fan, you'll have a great fun time.
