First to play: Well, I played some Heroes of the Storm yesterday, so I guess that counts.
First to buy: Dragonball FighterZ. It comes out on my birthday too.

It's mandatory! You WILL have a happy 2018, whether you want to or not! We'll force you to!

NEVER!

Okay, that's it!
Time to strap you into the happy chair!

This will send targeted electric shocks into your brain until you are capable of nothing but feeling delirious, ecstatic glee every single moment of the day! Without exception, each waking moment will be filled with such orgasmic euphoria that you will be incapable of coherent thought, or even so much as bladder control. Each and every second that passes you will experience an elation that climbs higher and higher, never regressing, into intoxicating bliss and you will know that 2018 is a Happy. New. Year!

No! Not the Happy Chair! Anything but the-

...Happy New Year.

Happy New Year.

Happy New Year.

Happy New Year.

Happy...

Sounds like it truly is party time!

First buy I think was RPGmaker 2003 because I have a mild addiction to that game engine and it was only 5 bucks and you never know when you wanna mess around with an older, outdated version of it despite having 3 projects in newer engines I should be working on... :D

And First play...If we're talking new stuff that I haven't played before 2018, probably New Doom. Just emerged from he Foundry level, mildly overwhelmed by all the action. I like. I just wish that I didn't keep spending 5-10 minutes at a time banging my head against an obvious secret area but not knowing how to reach it, which breaks the flow somewhat. XD

I was playing Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen as I heralded in the New Year. I played it for many more hours afterwards until my eyes felt like they were going to bleed. Good times.

First to play: I suppose it was Gang Beasts. I bought it New Years Day at a family party so we could play something fun and silly as a group. First solo game I played was, uh....Dota 2 maybe? Can't remember. Last few days are a blur.

The last game I played of 2017 was Mario Party 3. Girlfriend absolutely loves Mario Party. She lives in another state, currently, but insists on playing Mario Party 2 whenever we get together. So, for Christmas, I got her a (surprisingly immaculate) copy of Mario Party 3 on the N64. We played for hours last week. Made a drinking game out of it when her sister joined us.

First to buy: That's a bit tricky. You could argue that the new Battletech game is going to be my first buy, since I don't 'technically' own a copy yet. But I backed its Kickstarter a few years ago, so I'm not actually going to be shelling out any cash when it releases.

First thing I'll actively be throwing money at will depend on the release schedules of several upcoming titles. 'First come, first served' sort of deal.

So it'll either be:

Still waiting to learn more about a few others, including Anthem[1], Artifact, and whatever the 3 VR games and 1 singleplayer game Valve have in the works.

[1] Whose reveal trailer had initially garnered a resounding 'meh' from me, but I've since come to be marginally intrigued.

At least Kojima finally included a PAUSE button on the cutscenes. Kinda useful when it takes 30 minutes to finish one at times.

I was thinking, MGS4 is already 10 years old this year. OMG..time goes by..SO FAST!

I still remember how floored I was the first time playing it. The wtf eye candy intro-mercials, the music, the real time zoomable cutscenes, the exceptionally deep moveset, the pcm audio, the adaptable sneaking suit...it was the first game of the generation that went beyond a mere visual upgrade and stated ?This is what you bought a PS3 for?.

For reals. I remember the nostalgia of revisiting Shadow Moses in MGS4 and now a similar time has elapsed as between MGS1 and MGS4. The nostalgia has become the nostalgia. :p Like sand through the hourglass so are the days of our lives.

First played: AC unity. Not sure why, but I've the intense desire to hang about in France, solving crimes and thwopping naughty criminals around the head with the stock of a richly decorated hunting rifle. It's cheaper and less illegal than a murder-holiday. No less frustrating however.

First bought/buy: Hopefully none if i can help it. Maybe Redhead Redemption 2 or Trump's America Far Cry: Trump's America, depending on how many time-currencies and currency-funds are left to dissolve the last remaining fragment of willpower clinging on for dear life in the vain hope of justifying itself to itself.

First played: Pokemon Ultra Moon.

First to buy: Most likely Wolfenstein The New Colossus, unless I'm going to save for a Switch already which would mean Splatoon 2 or something.

I have been playing Metal Saga, Puyo Puyo Tetris and Silhouette Mirage. Metal Saga is like the only translated predecessor, Metal Max Returns by which I mean fucking awesome. Puyo Puyo Tetris is a fun combination of classic games, but pretty easy so far--though I am still at the beginning and I hear it gets a lot harder. Silhouette Mirage has the surreal style and fun of a Treasure game, but has so far been very easy, even easier than Alien Soldier. I got to stage 4 in a few hours with seven remaining continues and only once upgraded a weapon. I prefer the high difficulty of games like Gunstar Heroes and Dynamite Headdy.Working Designs's translation is also unusually poor: It usually provides a good, quirky translation but in this game the plot makes no sense.

My wife bought me Bloodborne for Xmas, so I've been playing that. I really like it, but it's slow going. So far I've exhausted almost all the avenues I have and am stuck on two different bosses that I can't beat. It's frustrating that most bosses seem to be the same fight. Only Father Gascoigne was not just a really big strong version of the beasts. And he was fuckin' hard too.

I think my only gripe is that the firearms weren't what I was expecting. I wanted to take on eldritch horrors with my sword and my Victorian guns, but the guns are clearly a replacement for the parry mechanic in Dark Souls, which I never got very good at, so I don't use Bloodborne's firearms very often. It's a bit disappointing that my boomstick doesn't really boom.

As for the first buy, I think once the semester is over I'm going to buy myself Dragon Age: Inquisition. I need the free time during the summer to play it properly.

You have an awesome wife.

On topic, I'm most likely going to buy Dragonball Fighter Z, I might preorder it in order to play Android 21 early.

Don't I know it!

The nice thing about Bloodborne's parrying is that you don't really need to be in the enemies' melee range for it to work. With a bit of practice in learning their timing it'll make more sense and become second nature.

Haven't bought anything yet. But the first game I refunded was Counter Strike: Source. I just don't enjoy it at all.

You can finish Bloodborne without parrying at all. It's harder in some respects but doable.

First to play: I spent like a week in thd lead up to Christmas re-modding the shit out if Skyrim as I upgraded my GPU and can run decent ENB and texture mods at a decent framerate now.

First to buy: I don't think anything I want even has a release date yet. Yakuza 6 is out at the end of March so that I suppose.

Well it was The Witcher 3 Complete Edition off Steam for me, and so far it's been slightly better than expected. I'm most impressed with the movement mechanics. Everything has been very fluid-like, and being able to swim is a breath of fresh air. The menu system is insane though. Practically everything has a tutorial but I think it's a bit counterproductive on occasion.
