Currently playing Outlast, courtesy of Humble, for free.

And it's pretty fun so far. Quite spooky indeed.

Humble has been really coming through with the free games lately.

I just finished Horizon Zero Dawn. I love games where the story is slowly pieced together. Also games staring freckled red-heads But what I enjoyed the most was that guerrilla games took mechanics and features from all kinds of games and improved them to fit HZD well. Can't wait to see what the DLC has in store. I'll definitely be playing NG+ before it.

That being said I'm on to Last of Us Remastered next since Naughty Dog just dropped an update for the PS4 PRO.

Man, that's the only game I ever speedran (spedrun?). I could do the whole thing from start to finish in like half an hour without ever using the camera's night vision.

Sort of related; the problem with scary games is they stop being scary as soon as you start to understand how the AI works. I guess it's a problem without a solution but it sucks when it happens like half way through a game you were really enjoying up 'till that point.

Banner Saga has been really fun and really cozy. I think I'm almost through with the first game. I like the soundtrack a lot. And the story is pretty well written.
The choices aren't too predictable. Typically in games like this the answers are pretty obvious, and it's not like that all the time. Sometimes it is predictable, but this game manages to surprise me a lot with pretty creative writing.

You know what's fucking cozy?

Samorost 3.

Best game to play when lit in a very long time. Amanita Design's best work to date. It's the first game they've done in HD.

Nothing in the game has any words, not even the menus. Pure visceral experience. So fucking good, pure escapism, like going away into a dream. My lady and I played it for 5 hours straight last weekend.

Cool. I should check out Banner Saga, too ... have always meant to, but you know how that goes. The art style always seemed attractive. Just wasn't sure I could get into lots of turn-based grid combat. But been playing a lot of One Way Heroics lately, and that's exactly what that is, so I'll bet BS would be up my alley.

The first two Samorost games are freely available as flash games I think. The same devs also made Machinarium, which is my personal point-and-click favourite.

You should check out all of them, Amanita Design never fails to deliver.

Botanicula is a great one too. It's more light-hearted I think, but that's not a bad thing. All of these usually make you feel a bit like a kid.

Samorost 3 is especially interesting, because you can tell it is actively trying to teach you things. Not game concepts, but ... things. And in such a subtle way that you actually are affected by them rather than it making you wanna puke. 5/5, mastapeace

This is literally, and I mean in the most literal sense, the comfiest game I've ever played. Relaxing menu atmosphere, amazing soundtrack (that Splash Wave, Risky Ride and Shiny World), sexy girlfriend riding with you in cool Ferrari convertibles you'll never get to drive irl and super fun and addictive arcade physics, who cares about simulations, I've already got a real car, it's so perfect. Shame online is kill and it gets very difficult as you progress and I feel depressed every time after playing it once the reality sets in but nonetheless it's a game anyone needs to play. SLAYER

SEGA had some of the best arcade machines of all time and whenever I was at an arcade I would go for Outrun first. The other racing arcade machines (Hang-On, Rally, Daytona) were also great. And if those were starting to get boring, I would go for Virtua Cop and then return. Good times.

oh man they always do well with outrun. I love that shit. I really enjoyed the 3DS port of the original arcade title. The 3D is really intense and adds a lot to it, they add a bunch of cheats you can unlock by finishing each route so you can just have an easy relaxing drive if you feel like it. Never heard of this one, if it's newer than Outrun 2006 I'll have to try it out. idgaf about online outrun was always a single player "driving' game rather than a racer to me.

Enjoy. And my advice is to start buying humble bundle. That way you can fill up your steam library with quality games on the super cheap. $12 a month and they usually give you 6-10 games that on the Steam store are worth upwards of $100-150.

Welcome to PC gaming, friend.

Your gut is probably right since a lot of early access games never really get finished properly. Also don't make the same mistake that I've made and buy every single bundle that goes on a Steam sale, especially with a fall sale coming up soon (and then a Halloween sale soon after, and a couple holiday ones after). Only buy games that you really think you'll play, otherwise you'll end up with all the Total War games that you will never have enough free time to ever play.

BLUE REFLECTION.

So I was browsing GameFAQs and saw this was coming out soon, and I am so glad I looked into it. When I first saw it I had hoped that it would finally be a JRPG that was turn based and had a decent story. I decided to purchase it DAY fucking ONE because I figured it looked worth the gamble.

I was so right. The intro surprised me by being all in Japanese, I prefer dub but the voices fit the whole scene incredibly well. The game is fucking beautiful and the environment feels real. On top of being gorgeous, the story is all about the "collective unconscious" and similar topics, but blown up into idols and metaphorical monsters.

If you like JRPG's you really owe it to yourself to try this out. This is shaping up to be my GotY

my jolly african-american, I beat QWOP, widely regarded as one of the hardest games ever made, ever. after only couple dozen hours of eyeball mashing practice. In 78.6 seconds. The game even says Im a national hero and for once skips the "we are all winners" crap, no we are not, the difference measured with every agonizing step all the way to the 100m line, THROUGH a MOTHERFUCKING HURDLE OUT OF NOWHERE!

Its not hard like Dark Souls, when you get beat by first boss 5 times, have a little cry, git gud, try strafing and kill it in couple of hours. You never get good. You cant even stand still reliably. And the worst is that it doesnt seem impossible, a racoon brain could probably handle it in some sort of gruesome transplant experiment, if it didnt give up on life straight away, which makes failure more personal.
Its a whole new level of determination, possibly over all a damaging experience.

How did you make it past the hurdle? Or have the stubberness to keep trying after running into something that looks like it's designed to be impassable.

When I ran into that shit after managing to run dozens of meters in a game where every step is a balancing act, I assumed it was the end, laughed, and felt victorious.
Shit, if I was the guy who made that, I wouldn't have even bothered to put any content after the hurdle.

Hurdle is surprisingly easy actually,I got to it twice and kind of pushed it and spazzed over it before the shock registered, at which point I must have gotten nervous about other traps this devious developer might've put there and half-somersaulted the fuck out with a routine faceplant.
The second time I crawled to the end, cementing my gaming pedigree forever, and there was no more traps, just this one hurdle, which I guess is fair and can be expected at track and field types of events. I appreciate this move by dev team, Stockholm syndrome or not.
In fact, the hurdle might be the only reasonable element of this whole game, some strats like slinging it over your face for extra stability might even be possible (if someone ever gets good, or by accident), and if not at least its a nice little achievement and makes the gameplay more varied, thats how fucked up this game is. 5/10

Yeah the game is a lot of fun. Making it free to play was the best move. Pubg was overpriced and Plenty of people didnt want to pay that price for a bearly functional game and Fortnite did a good job bringing all those people into theirs. A million players on launch, im happy for it cause its not an early access game from a developer that doesnt give a shit about fixing their game and just rides on its popularity.

There was this one unreachable platform early game which I somehow didn't forget about. So as soon as I got the required move to get there, I checked it out. Found an entirely new and really creepy area beyond. It's big as hell too.

I am in the same boat. I just found out the other day that Epic Games made Jazz the Jackrabbit so I had to give it a shot out of my childhood nostalgia for those 2 games.

It's a good time, I hope they add an option to swap cameras to the left side or even first person servers as an option because I am not a huge fan of the movement mechanics. Prone and vehicles could be good additions, but I am not sure how that would affect balance.

I woke up to cup head and it has been a pretty enjoyable experience thus far. Hard as balls, but the kind of hard where you have to memorize the level. They don't really reuse assets and the art is beautiful so I don't mind. I know I'm going to die when I get to a new area or boss phase because there is so much happening on screen. I wish my 360 receiver didn't keep frying out and shorting my computer when it plugs in because its kind of hard with a keyboard. Solid 9/10 game imo.

Just got done playing it as well and I had the opposite feeling. Not a big fan of games that require memorization of levels just to pass them, and while the art is the unique 1930s style the bosses and characters are pretty damn generic. Kind of lame when one of the first bosses you encounter is just a giant blue blob with a punching glove.

TL;DR: Ruiner was a fun game, give it a shot if you're interested.

I finished Ruiner. It was good. Maybe just shy of great, but it's definitely good.

Fucking loved the world that it's set in. Everything about that world was great, and I especially loved the city you could explore in between the levels. What a fun little hub world. I like that there are side missions to do inside of it too, it really helps the pacing of the game. I just wish there were more of it, or more of these cities to explore. Soundtrack was fitting and there's some tracks here I absolutely loved, and the character designs here are absolutely top notch. Everything about Ruiner is just so edgy and grimdark in the best of ways.

Really liked the upgrade system too. I mean, there's not much differentiating it from most, but it's functional. Its one defining feature is that you can reset upgrade points at any time, and the game is built so that you're going to be doing this more than a few times. For example, my upgrade path didn't use a shield at all, until I got to a boss that required I spend points in the shield upgrade path. I liked that about it. There's also a lot of choice to it and things tend to naturally build on your playstyle. Solid stuff.

When it comes to gameplay though, this is where things get a little bit shoddy. Ruiner is difficult. Even its Normal mode kicked my ass. But often it's not difficult in a fun way. A lot of it ends up feeling like you're throwing yourself at the same problem over and over and there's no real way to learn from your own mistakes, because enemy AI and placement is so unpredictable and you're so often just thrown into large rooms to fend off large waves of enemies. There's something to be said for this gameplay style, and it can be enjoyable, particularly when movement and weapons feel as good as they do here, but there are moments in this game that just rubbed me the wrong way.

It's way different than something like Hotline Miami, where enemies are very deliberately placed and each area sort of acts as both a puzzle and test of skill. Here it's all action all the time. And the action is good. It's fast paced (with some upgrades making it even faster) and there is just enough strategy involved, but it's repetitive. The game only lasts around 7 or 8 hours but it felt about twice that length. I don't mean that in an overtly harsh way either, that's really just how it felt. And it's not that it was boring. There's certainly enough here for it to remain engaging. I mean, I liked it enough to finish it in one sitting. It was just repetitive.

All of the characters and the writing are really fun, there are a few localization and proofreading issues though. Not nearly enough to become a real problem, just enough to notice. What really kept me playing was just to see what sort of enemy would show up next or what sort of characters I would meet. I really did end up loving the world of Ruiner more than I thought I would.

Solid 7 or 8/10 game though. Not perfect and nothing outstanding, but if you like dumb cyberpunk bullshit, this is some of the best dumb cyberpunk bullshit I've seen in some time. Would love to see how a sequel could improve, because as it stands this is a very good game with the potential to be great. It just needs to better balance its difficulty and pacing. I do plan on playing through it at least once more, so I'd say it's worth the $20 if you're already interested.

I'm gonna give it one more run because I missed a few side quest items and I want to see if I can get through it on Hard mode. After that I'll likely be done with it though. It's not a long game but I do feel like I got my money's worth out of it, even if I weren't to go through it again.

There's enough diversity and choice in the upgrade system that I know this next play through is going to feel pretty different from the first. I mean, Ruiner isn't an RPG or anything but there's just enough stuff going on with its upgrades to feel like you're running your own build. Like, you can choose to upgrade just a few things but upgrade them fully, or you could choose to spend points on a little bit of everything and be a jack of all trades, master of none. And again you can respec freely at any time so experimentation is encouraged, and there's a good deal of it to be done. Stuff like that is pretty great for replayability.

Then don't buy this game. Get QL, it's an infinitely better Quake game and your computer will run it no problem. When I said "good" what I really meant was "acceptable". Like it's not a bad game, it's just an abysmal AFPS and the only reason I'm playing it is because the new UT has like ~50 players at peak. I really, really wouldn't recommend this game to anyone.

The LG is broken beyond belief. The maps are pathetically small and you move so quickly that it's only supposed downfall, it's limited range, is fucking negligible. The pushback is also retarded and compounds the issue. The only way you could possibly get away from somebody with the LG is to haul ass in the other direction. That doesn't even fucking work because as soon as they hit you midjump, you're not going anywhere. You're stuck on the wall / in the corner.

The RL barely works. I've had rockets explode under people's feet and do like 12 damage. Whether or not you can use it is like playing a slot machine before every individual match; sometimes it actually works but most of the time you might as well just use it to kill yourself for all the good it'll do you.

Did I mention that the maps are total dogshit? Seriously they're CoD tier.

The hitboxes are fucking horrible.

The netcode is even worse than the hitboxes. You need to restart the game after 3 matches because it starts lagging terribly.

>TL,DR: All the things a good AFPS needs to do, QC doesn't. Most of the things a decent shooter needs to do, QC does most of the time. It's fun to play in the same way Brink was fun to play. UT is a better arena shooter even in it's abandoned, pre-alpha state.

I beat Star Fox 2 and I have to say the lower review scores everyone is raging at aren't too far off. It's just too ambitious for its own good. Poor performance is one of its problems, but not the biggest. It's way too short and the battles aren't very interesting. The real-time siege concept is interesting, but not fleshed out that well. I feel that more could have been done with it, like more threats to Corneria and more stages. As it is, I beat the game with 0% damage on my first try. The final boss isn't much either. It's not too much harder than the other bosses. Star Wolf is just kinda there too, showing up at what seem to be predetermined points and then dueling with you and leaving.

A slightly interesting thing happened to me in my playthrough though: I played with Fox and Miyu and died as Miyu in the final stage. I beat the game as Fox but Miyu never came back. Everyone else appears in the ending and not her. And that's why she's not in any later games.

I don't want to make any guesses as to what Star Fox would be like now if it did come out, but maybe it's good it didn't and we got Star Fox 64 instead.

I wish we could have had both. They each have their own merits. Star Fox 2 may be too ambitious for its own good, but at least it was ambitious. Sar Fox 64 is one of the all time greats, I don't think anyone here is going to argue that, but ambitious isn't exactly a word I would use to describe it.
>It's way too short
dawg have you played Star Fox 64? That's like a 45 minute game on a bad day. Again, great game, but I don't think it's fair to criticize the length of Star Fox 2 when Star Fox 64 is equally as short, if not shorter.

I guess I felt like I was bothered by what I felt was a lack of variety, which made it feel short. I didn't spend a lot of time on the planets either. There were only two kinds of boss fights, duels with Star Wolf and strafing around in a closed room firing at a few weak points, without a lot of variety between them. I'm told it's a game that should be played multiple times, but from what I played I feel like I've seen enough of it.

Mah boy. Everyone I know that's played it loves this game, but I don't think I've ever talked to anyone else that's even finished it. I 100%'d this game a year or two ago and thought it was great. Probably not worth going for 100% though, lots of grinding for coins real late game, from what I recall.

Gta five is really immersive especially in first person. I love just getting high and riding my motorcycle around. I stop at red light and stare at people in their cars. You can hear people talking to each other from the sidewalk and it sounds muffled just like if you're wearing a helmet in real life. I only wish crashing your bike would hurt more. I end up crashing into cars at high speed and never drop my bike and if do crash the bike hard enough to fly forward you only lose a bit of health. Sometimes If you ride in rural areas you run into a rape attempt. If you stop and trying to call the police they start shooting. Il be honest i didn't like the fact that they put it there. A little too realistic for my taste but i appreciate that they had the guts to put it there. Especially when you know its just a video game and you want to just ignore it and keep riding but you still feel compelled to do something. and that on its own is an experience i never thought i would have in a videogame.

Finally on a good run with Vampire Bloodlines. First time I ever stuck with it long enough to get past Santa Monica, and it's for the most part been a blast. But now that I'm near the end of it, I can really tell that they kinda rushed that part...

Pretty much everything beyond the Giovanni mansion has been exposition dumps inbetween fight/sneak sequences, depending how you tackle them, at this point I'm master of both so it doesn't really matter. Where did all the fun dialogue options go?

And then there's the boss fights. This game really doesn't handle combat well... It just gets tedious hacking away and remembering to heal every once in a while until that big fat healthbar is gone.

well it's been a DAMN long time coming but I'm finally playing this shit. It really does hold up, both in gameplay and storytelling. That opening bit where you're teleporting randomly was done better than the equivalent scene in the first game, I especially liked how the second time you end up the villain's office he's talking about gordon and slowly says his name once he sees him. damn good shit I can't wait to murder that totalitarian species betraying fucker. But yeah gameplay, that hoverboat section was exhilarating, I bet that must have blew people away back when it first came out. but then the buggy part handled like shit, I think I'm at the end of it. I kinda wish the shootouts had more tactics involved, I feel the first game had me thinking more but it's been years since I played it. But it's still really fun and I'm enjoying myself. I'm looking forward to beating it and playing the episodes, then being incredibly pissed off when I reach whatever cliffhanger the series ends on. then I'll play some of the other classic fps games I've neglected. Deus Ex and System Shock 2 are next.

oh man I forgot to even mention ravenholm. that was the best part so far. I thought that preacher dude would end up being an antagonist but he proved himself to be a thoroughly helpful dude. the way the headcrab zombies wail humanly when you set them on fire fucked with me though, they're clearly making words, so they aren't completely "gone' yet. that shit was unsettling. a lot of the worldbuilding comes from what you see in regular gameplay rather than cutscenes, I like it when games do that. and now there's acrobatic ones that jump from building to building, and you don't even fight them the first time you see em, I love how the game introduces shit from a distance before you actually encounter it directly. I'm still waiting to fight one of those walkers from the intro.

I've overplayed HL2, it's hard for me to see it the way I originally saw it back when my family got it's first serious gaming capable computer. It's especially hard to appreciate it after years of gmod.

HL2 and Oblivion were my first real PC games, previously to that I was only really familiar with console games, after hearing about HL2 somehow I went out and got a mouse and keyboard and played the ps2 port of Half Life 1 to completion in anticipation.

This guy is a fucking asshole!!

I just rage quit Hollow Knight. I got an ability and realized it could get me to a spot that I noticed early on but was blocked off so I go there and now am stuck here until I can get past him, which he is sitting right in the way of my only way out. I've tried him like 15 times but he telegraphs his moves with only like a half a second to get out of the way. Fuck.
The level design here kinda pisses me off. I get rewarded for my remembering of this area that was blocked off by getting stuck in a pain in the ass puzzle/hazard level area blocked off by by far the most annoying pain in the ass boss I've encountered so far. Literally 15 times I've tried him, I haven't had to try any other boss more than 3 or 4 times. Obviously I just need to take a break and get a fresh start but I'm so frustrated and just want to get through this shit area.

>Maining Decidueye(one of my absolute favorites from gen VII), also using Sceptile, Szizor, and Machamp
>Since I'm not good at non-Smash fighting games, I just do random single battles, daily challenges, and the Ferrum League

Pokemon Gold
>I know this isn't /po/, but fuck it, I now remember why gen 2 is considered the best gen by many fans
>Using Item duplication glitch to duplicate Nuggets and TMs
>Team currently consists of Typhlosion, Meganium, Crobat, Ampharos, Kadabra, and Lapras
>goodtimesnostalgiatrip.png

Metroid: Samus Returns
>I don't remember Many Metroid games being this hard
>Loving the new additions, especially melee counters
>Hunting for as may upgrades as possible. I'm hoping to Christ that the good ending isn't based on time, otherwise I'm fucked

By steering the public debate in election issues to stances that enrage the most people and tapping the people's desire to restore the empire to its former greatness (by "retaking" lands we never actually owned), I managed to get a liberal, democratic nation to vote for fascism, despite the fact that almost no one actually believes in fascism and 99% of people will have their rights restricted.

I call it the trump strategy.

It's pretty good if you look at it as a PS2 action game, but it is too short and the Waypool writing is dogshit. It sounds like I'm being harsh on it but honestly it is kind of fun and there's nothing inherently wrong with it feeling like a PS2 action game. I like PS2 action games.

Playing the first Shadow of Mordor... Weird game. It really just throws you to the wolves, doesn't it? You get a 3 minute tutorial, then boom: dropped into center of the world, all areas accessible.

I dunno if I like it or hate it. I've found myself wanting to play other games while I'm playing it, so I guess that's a bad sign. There just isn't much to it. "Go here, kill orcs, then go here and kill orcs, then go here and kill orcs, here is a 1 minute cut scene, then go here and kill orcs."

The whole nemesis concept is cool, but I've found it ineffective in game. #1 — I can't keep track of all these motherfuckers. They all look the same, their names are all similar. Am I fighting somebody I previously killed? No idea. #2 — It's not even hard. I'm 10 hours in and have only died 3 times.

I'd be weary of that 2nd game that's coming out.

Gemcraft is the last TD game that I bought/played. I loved the upgrade system and how you could use them as traps/bombs too. Quite a gem huehue

That kinda makes me want to get back into that, but I've been pretty deep into Enter the Gungeon lately.

Finished Death of the Outsider. Felt a little shortchanged even knowing it was a standalone expansion instead of a full on Dishonored 3, but... it's still Dishonored. I regularly spent 2+ hours per mission because I like sneaking around in that world so much. Just wish they didn't recycle so many levels.

Just beat Half Life 2 and Half Life 2 Episode 1. That bit at the end where your gravity gun gets an upgrade was a hell of a time. It made things almost too easy but god damn was it fun. That bit of dialogue you happen upon with dr breen talking about fascinating shit throughout the galaxy had me intrigued, I think he mentioned the sentient space fungi from lovecraft's stories, I bet episode 2 wont elaborate on any of it though lol, or who that alien was he had been talking to the whole time. Overall I'd say Half Life 1 still had more interesting firefights but this one had more interesting levels and an obviously much expanded plot.

As for Episode 1, it started out fascinating but then it just felt like a series of firefights that didn't really expand on anything I had already gone through in the main game beyond the headcrab bits, and the story and additional worldbuilding were minimal. the parts where you're dealing with headcrab zombies and desperately trying to keep enough light going to fight in were god damned incredible though. Difficult to respond to quickly enough with my beat up mouse but incredible.

I hear episode 2 is the best of the pair but I might start Metroid Samus Returns and beat that first. I'm gonna savor that last bit of half life that will ever exist when I get to it. well, last bit with the original writer anyways.

you ever play the gba remake, nightmare in dreamland? It's hard for me to even go back to the nes one after playing it. it's not dramatically different or anything but the animations are so damn expressive and the game controls better too. there's also meta knight mode but it's not a whole separate story mode with different bosses like in the super star ds remake.

I'm starting to get towards the end game in Hollow Knight with about 24 hours logged. I've got about 75% of the map explored and finally learned what the fuck I'm supposed to be doing lol. But now there's a ton of backtracking to be done to clear out a lot of items and challenges that I passed up before because they weren't accessible. So I imagine I've probably got at least 8-10 hours left to finish it. I play these types of games really slowly though and really like to take in the atmosphere so I imagine somebody else playing this could beat it a lot faster.

I like how this game doles out little bits of lore here and there, but it's cryptic as fuck so a lot of the time you don't really even know what you're reading until later when you learn some more.
The whole story and the delivery of the lore, interactions with NPC's and the cryptic nature feel a lot like Dark Souls. Even some of the themes, like bugs turning into husks is very reminiscent. It feels like a platformer version of Dark souls with bugs. The game is fairly difficult but it's not quite as punishing though. But I've been really careful not to lose money.
I gotta say that I'm a bit in love with this game.

I beat it about a week ago. It's pretty incredible. You can tell the people making it had real passion and focus.

I beat it with 85% completion and about 35 hours of gameplay, only missing some collectibles. I'm almost positive I explored the majority of the map and fought nearly all of the bosses. But I'll definitely return to it sometime for 100% and future DLC releases.

Ha, I was just about to post that exact screenshot. Saw him there while doing the delicate flower quest for my last mask shard.

I'm loving everything about this game. The storytelling style is very similar to Souls, but I find myself wanting to find out about this game's story much more than I did in any of those games. 40 hours in and I'm trying to do as much as I can before I head for Black Egg Temple which I assume is the last boss.

Kind of curious as to how the ending works, is it like Zelda games where, after you beat the last boss, it puts you back outside before the fight so you can keep playing and fight it again? I want to 100% the game and get a good ending but I'm also trying to avoid spoilers.

Also curious about pic related, is this just flavor text or can I lock myself out of an ending if I wait too long or hit some trigger?

Yeah, I saw him there while doing the same quest.

The ending's like Zelda, but there's a few possible endings depending on stuff you've attained going in and how you fight the last boss. As far as I know, that's just flavor text. Without spoiling too much, make sure you've awakened the dream nail and explore around with it before going into the final boss

Beat Middle Earth: Shadow of War; it's an improvement over the first one but still has the issue of the ending being really flat. Also had the issue of where I couldn't fully experience the patented Nemesis System™ because I never died to an Orc, it was always some environmental death or beast death.

I only bought the loot boxes with in-game currency near the end to reduce the grinding of my Orc's levels, but it can certainly be done without buying the loot boxes.

I was playing Yakuza 5 before so I'll probably finish that up and then buy Kiwami for the patented Majima Everywhere™ system.

I died twice so far, once at the beginning to the new caragor units, and once to an online vendetta where an unintroduced orc hit me from offscreen with a chain, killing me in one hit and revealed he had "no chance". Never saw him again.
Incidentally if you want something interesting to do, shame the same captains over and over until they lose their minds. Sometimes snapping and gaining 20 or 30 levels.I shamed this one guy like 40 times to see what would happen, with death threats always active and got funny unique dialogue the first 5 times, then he just blinked wrong and clicked his teeth at me.
It was cool.

just beat Metroid Samus Returns. they really amped up the combat difficulty, I haven't had this much challenge from just the combat outside of a few parts of prime games. The atmosphere doesn't seem as stark and alien as it did on the old gameboy, which I miss, but it looks beautiful and oozes atmosphere. sr388 is now fairly lush, and is filled with decrepit chozo machinery and architecture, some of the robots are even still operating and fulfilling their old duties pointlessly. every little area has some unique objects in it, not a whole lot is repeated, and the stereoscopic 3d effect is used to great effect. stylistically it heavily resembles metroid prime, and it even reuses the soundtrack (the only point of laziness in the game, and you wont mind). I'm surprised at how much work they put into this remake's visuals and expanding/refining the gameplay. Even if you've already played the original this is unique enough to warrant playing through.

I also liked how the ending pose for samus is unique to each difficulty, and hard mode makes her look like her old nes sprite but as a proper 3d model. green hair and weird pink jumpsuit and all. . Don't expect to see any of that if you're not gonna speedrun, it's based on time and difficulty rather than percentage. percentage affects the chozo memories gallery which has some crazy shit at the end if you get 100% item completion. surprised the hell out of me, that last memory had me very curious. The game teases a metroid fusion remake, if it's half as good as this I'll probably buy that too. My only gripe is that they restricted the fusion suit, sound test, and the concept art gallery all to separate amiibos, but none of that is super important.

Yeah, the game is still lacking a bit in replay value but I suppose they tried to remedy it with the online aspects. I managed to shame two guys; one jumped from level 30 to 50 while the other bumped all the way down to level 1 but never got deranged so he spoke normally.

I kind of feel like the game would've been better suited to have gameplay similar to the Godfather 2 game, where you had your mafia family doing things in the background but you could pick 3 made men with their own skills to accompany you and customize them yourself so there's a bit of personal attachment to your allies.

I only met a handful of really unique Orcs; a handful of rhyming ones, a guy with two faces, the maggot ones, and a bard who taunted me with a song on one of the very last missions so I couldn't get him, unfortunately.

Bad news though!
I don't think you can actually romance the chicks in the classical sense. There's one girl who's a lesbian and has some hilarious and flirty dialogue but the "feelings" seem to hinge on the story before you can max them out... Unless I already have anyways. So until I beat the game it looks like you can't really have sex with them, just sexually charged convos

Well, I just shamed a really upstanding disciplined commander type a few times, the first two or three he just whined about how I ruined his life and his fellows mock him unendingly, before proclaiming I wouldn't shame him again. After that, though, he stopped speaking entirely and would only stare at me, dead eyed and screaming like a pterodactyl or the Blood starved beast. Incredibly awesome.
Did it to an olog for a while, actually started to feel bad. He just went on about how he'd never forgive me and when I killed him he said "I may die, but this will not end." Later, he came back as a swollen eyed zombie albino, thanking me for murdering him because it was the best thing that had ever happened to him. He then started throwing a multitude of explosives at me, but he had spawned in on a carriage or something from which there was no escape for his character model.

Honestly the best thing that has happened to me so far occurred while I was repeatedly shaming some captain, but the mission, which was to blow up grog stacks to draw him out, would repeat. the third time I came back, I was sniping stacks from a tower when an olog ambushed me, picking me up and smashing me into the ground. He screamed in my face about his precious grog as he held me down, and was introduced as Shaka grog-maker. Blew my mind.

Yeah you really can't take it seriously which is kinda sad cause there's alot to read, notes and books scattered around the map to suck you into the lore. I usually love games that do that but when its that Corny i just cant take it seriously. The game play is decent, nothing to write home about but it will keep you entertained if you like stealth games. But like i said, your guy is overpowered from the get go and unless you limit yourself you will get bored. I mean, you get an assortment of powers, guns and crossbows, traps, but all i needed was a knife and the blink power and im crusing through the game.

They did it boys. They made a good video game.

Spent like 5 hours playing this tonight, just going through that first open area as thoroughly as possible and I'm hooked. The game is difficult, super tense, and balanced incredibly well. I've already had so many situations that seemed impossible that I just barely scraped by with and it's super satisfying. Plus this combat just feels great. It's more or less the first game's combat but the framerate isn't garbage and no letterboxing, so it's playable. To be fair the first game is totally playable and I actually really like that game, but this one really is an improvement in almost every way.

I miss the match burning mechanic, it's been replaced with a stomp. It's equally as effective in killing enemies, just not against groups. 1 stomp = 1 kill. But it works. I expected to hate the crafting as I tend to in most games. I thought the first Evil Within did crafting well because it kept it simple and necessary. The same is true here. There are more items to be used in crafting and you can craft your own ammo for everything now instead of just for crossbow. What makes it work is, again, balance. Ammo is scarce in the world and you simply aren't going to get by without crafting. It's super simple to do, it takes like a second, you can craft anywhere, and you're always weighing your options between which resources you want to spend on what. Basically it's fun.

The biggest changes are structural though. Going from linear, level based gameplay to a focused open-world design is a massive change, and The Evil Within 2 simply has a better flow to it than the first game did because of it, despite both game's changing scenery so often. The general gameplay loop here is just more enjoyable because it immediately offers more depth and choice.

And holy shit there's a music track here that straight up references that awful Resident Evil 1 Director's Cut basement song. You know the one.

Can't wait to play through the rest of this, so far I'm loving it.

i did a quick high chaos run through dishonored 1, which was fun apart from the feeling that I was missing a lot compared to a low-chaos game. i do like that, by the end, Samuel is just like, "get the fuck off my boat, asshole. i don't like you, i don't really care if you die, and i'm gonna alert the guards just for the hell of it. later bitch."

now I'm going back to 2 to see what i missed on my ghost/merciful playthrough as emily. so in addition to killing everyone as Corvo I also turned down the outsiders powers, which I'm sort of regretting. it's fun to find alternate routes without blinking everywhere, and the combat powers sometimes feel cheesy to me, but I'm also realizing how many neat little areas are totally inaccessible. Sometimes you'll eventually find a stack of boxes around the corner but I still wish it was like the first game where you get blink whether you like it or not. Or, at least, that I could upgrade my boots to get that sweet sweet double jump naturally. Put some springs in those suckers or some shit.

It's kinda hard to get used to the mechanics of it. It's different playing a game where you're not punished for dying at all. You just die, spend your points, then get back to it. The only thing you lose is a bit of time.
But overall it's really fun so far, the first boss wasn't too difficult. The only thing that I'm really having issues with is finding my way around and figuring out how to unlock objectives.

Got my Switch back after sending it in for repairs, so I'm back on working my way through master mode for Breath of the Wild. Been playing Samus Returns as well, and I'm loving it to a considerable degree.

While waiting for the return of my Switch, I played a hefty amount of Destiny 2 with pals and managed to get the three classes up to at least light level 300. Doubt I'll touch the other two again outside of my space wizard.

Yeah it was horrible on the 360 on release. The big fight at the end probably ran at 10fps.

This is what I have installed currently, nothing too crazy and it's been stable. Just make sure you get the Nexus Mod Manager and LOOT.

>Project Nevada
Rebalances the game and adds more stuff to make it more challenging.

>Yukichigai's Unofficial Patch
Fixes a ton of bugs.

>Nevada Skies
Weather mod. Makes the game more immersive and adds variety. You can also make the nights lighter or darker depending on preference.

>Wasteland Flora Overhaul
Makes the world look a little more alive and adds more plant/tree types.

>New Vegas Enhanced Camera
You can now see your body and shadow. Stupid little thing but makes a big difference.

>Bush Sounds
Adds a sound when you're moving through bushes or grasses. Another little stupid thing that makes a huge difference.

>Stutter Remover
Remover of stutter.

>Mod Configuration Menu
Allows you to edit mod preferences (for mods that work with it) from the ESC menu. I think this comes with Project Nevada.

>Using the console doesn't disable achievements
I like to adjust my FOV with the console. By default that disables Steam achievements.

Okay so I've been playing Sundered some more and my thoughts are that it's really fucking fun. Once you grind a little bit, get some treasure and make yourself stronger it makes it easier to explore and more fun. The bosses are really fucking fun. And difficult.

I didn't think a proc gen hack n slash metroidvania would be as cool as this is.

I picked up Prey, pretty cool game so far although i've only played 1 maybe 2 hours
The GLOO gun seems kind of useless right now as far as mimics go though, they're just too fast to get a shot on them. its much more efficient to swing wildly with the wrench
phantoms are a different story it seems to actually have a purpose with them. But I feel like i'm attacking this game too forwardly, its probably meant for a sneakier playstyle which i'm going to have to get used to
I have a feeling its going to take me a while to get through this game because i'm the kind of player that loves to explore every single nook and cranny a level has to offer

Its been like this since Persona 3. Even worse is that they keep giving you party members right before the end game so its impossible to max them out. If you wanted to max out Naoto or romance her in Persona 4, you pretty much need a guide to do it. Same with Haru in Persona 5.

As much as I love the Persona games, and Persona 5 is incredible, they really need to completely revamp the whole calendar system and story come Persona 6.

I don't know if you watched the anime and i highly suggest you do. Its not your average VN where they just through words at you and expect you to be interested all the way to the end. Nah, your choices really matter, not just right and wrong and that it.
I dont know if you watched the anime but il explain anyways. Japan is an isolated country that watches its citizens constantly and in turn has a very low crime rate. Psycho-pass is a reading of an individual's mind via cymatic scan. It shows a Crime Coefficient, a Hue, a graph of how the individual's Psycho-Pass changed over time, and the profile of the person. It mostly used to decide someone's best attributes and dictates their job and place in society. A person's Crime Coefficient is a numerical measure of said person's probability/propensity to commit a crime. Your character is a detective chasing after a mysterious figure that's remotely causing people to go through a spike increase in their psycho-pass. If someone's Psycho-pass reaches a point where its deemed irrecoverable, it is your job to eliminate the assailant and the victim if necessary.

The choices you take really matter, not only the victim and the assailant but also to yourself and your teammates. Sometimes its important to take action yourself and eliminate the assailant to save the victim but that will in turn increase your psycho-pass to the point where the Sibyl system might deem you a threat and turns your teammates against you. You have a partner, an enforcer, with a high crime coefficient to help you do some of the dirty work, but he's not always in the right place to do the job so sometimes you have to sacrifice the victims to save yourself. You have to balance between taking your medication, your relationship with the other detectives, your enforcer, and the cases you are investigating.

What im trying to say is, the game is really good and it integrated all the best aspect of the anime as game mechanics and build this story around the main character. Its one of the best VNs i ever played and if you liked Steins;Gate then this one is just the right game for you to play after. Also the music is really good.

Persona 3 was the worst. Persona 4 also needed a guide to fully complete. Persona 5 is the most forgiving and you dont need a guide if you're doing new game + but you still need the entire game to fully max out the SL. My main issue was the fact that i needed around six hours,and two days ingame for complete the final palace. So i finished it as soon as i can only to find out they stop being available to hang out with and just keep asking when you will send the Card. That six hour of the worst palace just gone. I just really dont like it cause most of the time is wasted backtracking between hallways. One maze is find, but three was just too much and kind lazy of them.

We're probably gonna see a dramatic change in the next Persona with the Director finally leaving to work on other projects. Im happy cause the gameplay was really growing stale.

I'm enjoying Prey quite a lot so far. Collecting garbage and recycling it then fabricating it is super satisfying and I finally got the first suit upgrade so my inventory is bigger now (looking back I probably should have saved up my neuromods to purchase the weapon and suit upgrade perks first thing but what are you gonna do)
I really like how if you don't have a certain perk or the keycard or code for a door theres usually another way in if you explore a bit or think about alternatives. I also really like that inventory is constant so you can store things in containers and drawers and what not, I always loved creating stashes in frequently visited places in games like fallout and elder scrolls, and your office is the perfect place to do it especially with the recycler and fabricator there.
Spacewalking is surprisingly fun and easy to maneuver once you get the hang of it, I always kind of hated sections like that in games such as dead space just because they were the outer space equivalent of underwater levels and usually a bother, but this aint half bad. I think I went a little too far off though because I encountered something that nearly killed me and barely did any damage towards it with my silenced pistol. I've been saving up my weapon upgrade boxes for when I get the shotgun.
I've been taking a more stealthy approach to combat too and it has been working out much better, I even managed to get the hang of hitting mimics with the gloo gun so those quick bastards can't scurry away.
I just got to the section where you listen to the rest of the message from yourself that tells you that you have to blow up talos. You get this general access keycard which seems to unlock everything in the talos lobby section which you couldn't access earlier so I'm going to have a lot to explore tomorrow, theres this side quest regarding Bellamy thats been just sitting in my quest section since the beginning so it'll be nice to cross that off the list now that I have access to psychotronics

Started playing Firewatch.
I'm digging this game so far, though I suspect I haven't gotten to the real conflict yet. But I do enjoy the mountaineering and navigating aspects. I'm huge into hiking so it's conflicted as it's lame that I'm not actually hiking but still a cool game. It just really makes me want to get out there.

Also, it makes me want to become a wildfire fighter. I have a buddy who does it and he's gone basically on long ass camping trips 3 months out of the year. It seems like a crazy job but like it would be really cool because it's one of those immersive jobs where you don't really have a chance to spend your money until your 3-4 months is up.

Just beat the new South Park game. It was alright but not even close to as good as the first. Combat is dumber, not really much character progression, it's shorter, not written as well, and the level design sucks. Also they added in some obtuse crafting system for no fucking reason. All in all it was like a 6/10 game. Didn't even have many great "wtf" moments like the first game had.

Also the plantmancer powers are by far the best. high damage ranged charm, a 3x4 area knockback/bleed/damage, and best of all the ultimate REVIVES YOUR ENTIRE TEAM AND HEALS THEM. The group revive trivializes combat, I used it eveyr two turns near the end of the game it's ridiculous.

Still playing New Vegas with a few mods despite it being so goddamn janky overall.

Wanna go for the Yes Man ending, because Mr. House is a stale jerky idiot and the rest of the Vegas houses are weak, but I'm trying to see if I can get the NCR and the Brotherhood into the fold to help me rule over my kingdom.

I also have all the expansions and have no idea what they are or when to go try them out. I kind of prefer it this way.

You can get the NCR to "retreat" on "friendly" terms, and forge an alliance with the BoS, but the BoS will keep being dicks and antagonize the wastelanders that scavenge advanced technology.

Which ironically means that the best means for the survival of the BoS is to act as glorified mercenaries in NCR territory.

Also, you really should play Dead Money as soon as possible. Dead Money is a fucking amazing survival horror DLC when you're low level, but when you're high level, it's just a fucking chore because you can just power through everything with a million HP and the whole feeling of TERRROR around every street corner is removed.

You might want to do all the DLC, I say the worst one is Honest Hearts and it's because it's kinda boring, but it's not even that bad and if you're really feeling froggy, do Lonesome Road.

Hahahaha oh my god what an abrasive asshole. It's been so long since I've checked a gaming board/website/chamberpot. Completely forgot what kind of people make up gaming communities. lol

Anyway, been playing Fallout New Vegas lately. I've been playing with Capslock on so I have to hold shift to sprint. Makes the game really immersive when I have to walk for days to get where I'm going. I've been trying to play with the mindset of an average asshole just trying to survive. I don't pry into people's problems or background, I blow off quests that don't offer an immediate survival-oriented benefit, and I don't have any real faction allegiance. I really, really prefer the Legion over every other group in the game though. The NCR ideology is such short sighted hogwash; I hate it.

also i tried to make my character look like a Somali pirate. He came out looking a little bit like Bodie from The Wire though, imo

Honestly, I say Lonesome Road is by far the worst DLC ever for ANY Fallout game because of how much it railroads your character into accidentally destroying this magic fucking land that was some how untouched and had both NCR and Legion long before the first battle of Hoover Dam. It may be a fun DLC to play, but it is the worst written schlock I've ever had to deal with.

Why don't you just go Independent if you're in that line of thinking?

NO GODS, NO MASTERS.

>>708939

In order I would say the best to worst by enjoyability is:

Dead Money
Old World Blues
Honest Hearts
Lonesome Road

Honest Hearts may have a pretty bleh story, and may get kinda boring looking at Utah, but it was a change of scenery and you get some neat weapons (Joshua Grahams .45 carried me to the end of the game)

Lonesome Road was a huge jump in difficulty, like the first few enemies you fight you're instantly outmatched and eviscerated, and don't get me started on the deathclaws. It wasn't fun to play at all, it drained me of resources each trip, and it was just a chore.

Yes this, the earliest you play it, the easier tine you'll have, but chronologically, it happens before the endgame. Play Dead Money before you out level it too much. Seriously, you'll be doing yourself a disservice if you wait until you can steamroll through it.

They're not technophobic. They use guns, they have artillery canons set up around The Fort. The highest ranking guys in the Legion use power fists. As a general rule they don't like technologically advanced healing shit because they think it creates weak men, they're the kinda niggas Carling was channeling for some of his bits.
>Besides, what do you think you have an immune system for? It's for killing germs, but it needs germs to practice on. So, listen, if you kill all the germs around you and live a completely sterile life, then when germs do come along, you're not gonna be prepared. And never mind ordinary germs, what about when some super virus comes around and turns your vital organs into liquid shit? I'll tell you what you're gonna do; you're gonna get sick, you're gonna die, and you're gonna deserve it because you're fuckin' weak and you got a fuckin' weak immune system.

Anyway, this argument is pretty lame because NV was never finished and we never got to see the Legion like we were supposed to. In the game we got they come across as pretty generic bad guys but they actually have a lot of good points and are supposed to be a legitimate choice, not something relegated to evil cannibal, murder-everyone-you-see playthroughs.

The weakened state of mankind following the atomic blasts offers an opportunity to unite the world under one flag. By using brutal and militaristic tactics, the Legion seeks to exploit that weakness and establish one society united under Caesar. Caesar claims that the atomic bombs were sent by the God of War, Mars, for just this purpose.

The ultimate goal of the Legion is to unite humanity. They see democratic societies as tools that the rich and powerful use to keep the majority of humanity in a state of constant irresponsibility and ignorance. By keeping the people addicted to consumerism, they could effectively drain citizens of their wealth while rendering them ineffective. This not only partially explains the Legion's disdain of alcohol and chemical stimulants, as well as pointless luxuries, it also explains why they see the majority of people as "animals," and are so quick to use violence against them. To them, "animals" are those creatures that live only to survive. Humanity, in their eyes, is defined instead by the ability to override the fear of death and the base instinct to survive. Those who are able to face death head-on can more easily sacrifice themselves in pursuit of a greater societal and ideological goal.

Caesar greatly dislikes democratic societies, especially the NCR, because of their glorification of the wealthy over the worthy. In addition, Caesar greatly dislikes sectionalism and consumerism, mainly because he believes they convert humans into "animals," or simple beings that live only for the sake of surviving. Caesar believes that it is his opportunity and destiny to unite all humankind under one banner, ushering in an age where each human is judged by their merit, and the subsequently given power according to that perceived virtue. This way of thinking exemplifies the differences between the NCR and Caesar's Legion.

The NCR believe that basic democratic mercantilism will eventually bring peace to the wastes. While the greedy may rule now, when peace and stability inevitably arrive, the populace eventually will acquire greater power through reform. Caesar, however, sees that as a curse, not a blessing. In his mind, it will allow humans/"animals" to be preyed upon by the greedy. While the NCR uses their significant wealth to fund research to improve the average life expectancy of citizens, the Legion believes that longer lives come at the cost of other humans, resources, and purpose; people who blindly try to extend their lives should instead attempt to live without the fear of death hanging over them.

This is why the Legion refuses to use medical sciences, except in rare cases. Given how little common ground exists between the ideologies of the NCR and the Legion, these factions will undoubtedly contest each other until one is defeated.

>Why don't you just go Independent
I pretty much am, but I do enjoy occasionally playing as an agent of destruction on behalf of the Legion. I was absolutely loving the whole "I'm going to track this dude Benny down and kill him" revenge story, and when the Legion literally let me crucify the dude, I was straight up ecstatic at how gangland/ruthless my character had become. I'm basically doing Legion quests atm just out of morbid fascination. Mr. House was so dismayed when I told him I was basically opening the path for the Legion to fuck everything up, and hearing the vitriol in his voice when he condemned me to Hell was a major highlight.
Usually I much prefer playing the good guy, but damn it's a breath of fresh air to have a gameworld that lets me be pragmatically evil along the moral parameters that I decide. So cool

>>708946
I mean we're playing in a gameworld where capitalist democracies (NCR) nearly wiped out humanity 200 years prior, and the totalitarian fascist regimes of Mr. House and Benny can be toppled once the leading individuals are killed. Either one just teaters in total instability and chaos and both are indirectly built off the suffering and neglect of the average joe (in the gameworld of New Vegas; not trying to get political here). I was reading into the lore of the Legion and apparently their territories are nearly crime-free, power and water flows without issue, and trade is thriving. You actually meet a merchant in-game who testifies to this.

There's actually a lot of depth and reality to this concept that can be seen in the real world. I'm not supporting IS or condemning democracy, but I work in a field that requires in-depth understanding of the recent geopolitical upheaval in ME/NA countries. A lot of the conditions and factors that lead to the formation of the Legion in Fallout are actually very similar to those that contributed to the rise of the Islamic State. Mass poverty and unemployment, unchecked crime, droughts, food shortages, perpetual conflict, chronic pattern of revolution-collapse in state entities, ect.
A radical group like the IS/The Legion is formed out of a reactionary need to address straight up dire circumstances. Most established governments will revert to some type of emergency protocol (Martial Law, State of Emergency) once social order has broken down. Shoot looters and other criminals, prevent protesters from causing further unrest, ration food and medicine, ect. It's basically a way to tackle all existential threats so that social order can be restored. The NCR is skipping the "restore order" part and are instead just taxing people and ???. They're trying to be a government without establishing a foundation.

Remember, western civilization was built on a foundation created by people like the Romans. Stability is not the status quo; it's something that has to be fought for, protected, and enforced. That's why the Legion is centered around the Roman societal model of military conquest. It's the foundation for civilization in a world that has been reset.

idk if I conveyed this all properly, but I'm sure I'll get angry replies regardless. Eh.

In the game we got they come across as pretty generic bad guys but they actually have a lot of good points and are supposed to be a legitimate choice, not something relegated to evil cannibal, murder-everyone-you-see playthroughs.

But that's what we got to work with. What's presented, not what might have been. You don't get marks for work you didn't show. What we see is a slaver empire that doesn't practice industry, arms the bulk of their armies with melee weapons when their enemies have rifles, and as it was said in Honest Hearts "Cesear doesn't have allies, only slaves"

Again, they hide land mines under wounded solders. Raze cities for propaganda purposes, practice slavery, and casualty crucify people.

>They see democratic societies as tools that the rich and powerful use to keep the majority of humanity in a state of constant irresponsibility and ignorance.

Apposed to Ceaser's dictatorship which is just a tool of the strong and powerful to keep the majority of humanity in a state of constant slavery and fear?

>Humanity, in their eyes, is defined instead by the ability to override the fear of death and the base instinct to survive.

AKA justification for taking what they want. "their just animals" AKA Barbarism.

>This is why the Legion refuses to use medical sciences, except in rare cases.

Those cases being "When the leadership needs it"

The Legion is nothing more then any tinpot African or Mid-east dictatorship that exists solely to glorify the people on top. Their entire "philosophy" is weak justification for their behavior. Nothing more then that. Ceaser isn't even that good at that. Remember that everyone with a long perspective (House, Marcus) can see the Legion is surviving his death. Just another group of thugs writ large with a leader who's read a book or two.


>Caesar believes that it is his opportunity and destiny to unite all humankind under one banner, ushering in an age where each human is judged by their merit,

Besides women, and slaves, aka most of the population.

Beat Zone of the Enders 2 for the first time, and instantly wanted to play through it again. The main gameplay loop is just so immediate and satisfying, and the controls work so perfectly. Makes me wonder how this game didn't spawn its own genre, everything about it except the VOand arguably its short length is absolutely stellar.

>This new version of 2nd Runner appears to be a full-fledged remake of the game and not a simple HD upgrade. In a press release, Konami noted that “All visual and aural elements have been remastered for native 4K resolution” and that “the new game retains the unique and beautiful visuals of the original title, but boasts textures in updated 4K while using surround sound techniques to offer layered and immersive audio effects."
>The really big news is that the PS4 version of 2nd Runner will feature VR support. At this time, there’s been no word on whether or not the full game will be playable in VR, but the teaser trailer for the title does briefly show off some VR action that hints at a very playable - and quite striking - reimagining of the title. We’re interested to see more of the game’s VR mode in action.

Far Harbor doesn't come anywhere close to any of the FONV dlc but its tolerable i guess. The story is pretty boring, its what you would expect from Bethesda really. Having three factions fighting with each other making you choose one is a good thing if it was done well, but here it just feels lame and predictable. I always found myself messing around with my phone whenever im in a conversation with a character, that's how bored i was with the story. Honest hearts played the religion thing really well, and comparing it to Children of Atom here who are just a bunch of crazy zealot its really hard to care about any of this. I decided to bring them a little closer to atom and im probably gonna destroy all the synths cause fuck it they're just machines anyways and im from the institute and they are my property. also lol machines cant be brothers i never even liked valentine anyways also cant Kasumi just check if shes a synth by checking if she bleeds or something? there's probably a million ways she can check but that's never really brought up. I liked the simulation puzzles though, especially the last one.

I got this on sale and i only spent 12 dollars on it and i don't think it was worth it. I only really enjoyed it cause i got to fuck around with mods a bit more and there are some really good mods out there. Made the game really difficult to play, takes only a couple of bullets to die but so does everyone else except for the wild life so there were some really intense moments there, but thats really due to the mods no thanks to Bethesda cause survival mod is garbage. Apparently this is the best dlc so im probably gonna skip out of the rest.

I liked Destiny 1, but so far 2 on PC is giving a pretty awful first impression. Got stuck on 'signing in' for the first five launches of the game, then made a character, watched the intro cinematic, and the game promptly crashed. And keeps crashing. And I can't even change the settings to try to fix it until I get in-game. Apparently there's a problem with AMD Phenom II processors which a month-and-a-half delay wasn't enough to fix.

I try not to get upset over video games, but seriously, what happened to Bungie?

Built it in 2012ish, upgraded sporadically, using a Phenom II 965 x4 BE. 4 cores running at 3.4GHz alongside a GTX 970 should be enough to at least run pretty much any game, if not max out the settings, or am I going crazy?

Anyway, they updated their known issues:

I love how these guys were able to make a better might no 9 game than the guys who actually invented it lol. I bought this cause it's gunvolt though, and it's pretty good in that regard, though it plays more like a heavily modifiable mega man game than a gunvolt game.

>Sonic Mania
hot damn this is the 2d sega saturn sonic game we never had. at least I don't think a 32x or cd could handle this. as far as I'm concerned this is sonic 4.

>Etrian Odyssey 5
not bad, it's up to snuff mechanically, all new enemies, the new familiar summoning classes are neat. but other than that it's a step backwards from 4. the music doesn't stand out from the other games at all, the new monsters aren't really that interesting visually like they were in 1-4, the classes that resemble older classes aren't as fun as their predecessors, the dungeons are back to being traditional and there's no overworld like in 4, and it might just be me but they look less detailed and pretty than in the other 3ds titles. if you just want eo1 with different classes or you really need and new old timey first person dungeon crawler rpg then by all means get this. but if you want an progression of what eo4 was doing you're out of luck. again though it isn't bad, but this is as generic as etrian odyssey gets. there's little personality to distinguish it, in every aspect.

I know I'm late to the party but I just got the Bioshock collection and holy shit, this might be the best shooter I've played in.. well, ever. My only gripes are the remaster freezes which was a problem than original had and the Big Daddys are such tanks I get Vita-Chambered like eight fucking times. Bullets don't phase them and the things don't react to plasmids the same, luckily know I have the grenade launcher which makes quick work at least. The story so far is fucking awesome though and I love all the old-timey bits of music and ads. You can tell Fallout took some cues from this which speaks to its quality. The gunplay is actually pretty nice and the splicers are creepy as fuck sometimes. This is the perfect October game I think, no jump scares and all atmosphere.

They are actually covered in candle wax. In her dialogue she references how she tends to the flames keeping the candles lit.
When you speak to Stockpile Thomas he refers to her as the poor girl whose eyes are covered by wax.
Also, in Dark Souls 3, in the archives, you dip your head in wax so as to not be hit by the hand things coming out of the wall. Some think that's a reference to the maiden in black.

just finished Fractured but Whole, was pretty fun, thoroughly enjoyed it

Pros
>Obviously just a long south park episode, i watched like 5 or 6 eps from the newer season to get newer jokes and game had tons of great moments
>Good sized cast of usable characters, all have pretty unique attacks
>Paper mario is one of my favorite games so I like the action button combat and the new grid style mixed it up decently to make it decently strategic
>Most boss fights especially Jared and cousin kyle's end fight were real funny too

Cons
>Near the end game is pretty repetitive, by the end I was mostly just enjoying the story not gameplay
>Major annoying thing was your gay out of combat powers and how you have to scroll over something, select the power to use and then sit through an animation to use it. By the final levels they put like 5 objects per room (to distract you from the fact you're just walking room to room) and it probably takes 10 minutes just for animations
>Some of the characters seem useless, I used three guys for most of the game and only had to switch my powers/pals probably 3-5 times all game but didn't experiment much so idk

Overall if you liked stick of truth and like south park you'll like the game. low key a walking simulator back and forth but it's in the town we all know and we see the characters we like so who cares, it's funny

I bought Star Wars Battlefront 2 on Steam recently and wow it's like reliving my childhood - it's so much fun! I've been downloading tons of old user-made maps to play; there's literally hundreds upon hundreds of them. I just love exploring these game worlds other people have created. I'll try to get really immersed into my role as a soldier on some strange alien world, giving myself a new story each time I respawn. It's just neat :)

You know, I think I've been getting cynical and jaded over the years and most new games just don't immerse me properly. SWBF2 is one of those rare games that still triggers a childlike curiosity in my head and I can literally lose hours to exploration and shenanigans when I'm playing it.

You guys should really try to pick it up. Download at least one of these massive map packs, smoke a joint, and get lost in the Star Wars universe. I'm loving it :)

Jedi Academy is that game for me.

Never really explored BF2's modding community. Anytime I play it it's usually splitscreen which means I have to run it on the 360 thus no mods.

Been playing Destiny 2 on PC for the last couple of days. I'd post a screenshot if the game worked with Fraps and probably wouldn't ban me if I used any other overlay.

I have some really mixed feeling about this game. It definitely feels solid most of the time. The art direction is on point, the guns feel good and the game definitely has excellent moments. But also, I can't get it to run at a consistent 144hz outdoors with a pretty beefy rig and at times it doesn't look like good for a high budget AAA PC game. And there's also the really shitty thing about not even being able to play all of the content that will be released THIS YEAR with the base game. You have to buy the DLC or get the season pass.

If you're on the fence about the game, wait until next year. It's a bit underwhelming at the moment.

I regret buying Destiny 1 for this reason. When the sequel was announced, I just ignored all the hype. It definitely looks better than the first, though.

Just beat Martyr Logarius for the first time. He was a real jerk. The thing about his fight though is when you learn everything he can do the fight itself isn't hard but its the punishment you receive from slipping up that makes it hard. Also I'm still amazed the amount of damage Tonitrus equipped with a fire gem can do. Its been my boss killer throughout the game so far.

Going to farm now for echoes and shard. Cainhurst armor looks dank and I need to finish upgrading Logarius Wheel.

I gotta say, Bungie seems to hit all the right marks with the first one. Playing it on heroic, and really enjoying the AI. I optioned to play it on the PC. I'm having a bit of a difficult time since i left the Pillar of Autumn but i wouldn't call it unfair. With every time i die, i learn a bit more about how the AI responds to my actions. There was some intense moments there, when my shield is down and i know the enemy will rush me even if their shields are down as well and im asking myself if i could take them all on or not. I decide that i do, and it pays off. The only thing i played by Bungie was the first Destiny i dont even want to compare the two, since comparing this game to Destiny is doing it a disservice. People tell me Halo 2 is the best in the series but i cant imagine anything topping the experience im having right now.

I did die like five times until i survived long enough to get the Warhog. Maybe i should tone down the difficulty.

Peach Beach Splash! It’s a Senran Kagura spin-off that came out a little over a month ago. Lots of cute girls and outfits to dress them up in. It plays like a platoon while to story is visual novel style.

What I’m loving about Blue Reflection is how segmented and free form it is. I can pick it up and put it down as much as I want. I could almost see potential sequels working with a monster Hunter style gameplay where the high school is a hub and the common zones are the different levels haha.

Halo 2 is the best because at the time it had an amazing multiplayer experience. There were tons of fun custom games to play, my favorite was tower of power.
But the campaign was also awesome. Very fun, very well written and creative.
Halo CE was an amazing game and kinda revolutionary, but Bungie took that and upped the ante with Halo 2. But they're both amazing in their own right.

I've been playing SpongeBob: Battle for Bikini Bottom and Sonic 2. Man, I might not ever get the good ending for Sonic 2. I can barely pass the second special stage, Sonic 2 is without a doubt the hardest of the first 3+K. SB:BfBB is a really good game but it's got so much going on my old Xbox can barely take it, I'm gonna have to clean it soon. The game is awesome it's like Mario 64 with SpongeBob. Rock Bottom was a total pain in the ass though I spent an hour looking for the last painting because I missed it and the dreary music didn't help. Looking forward to more upbeat and bright levels, although they nailed the atmosphere of Rock Bottom perfectly. All this Halo talk makes me want to run through Outskirts again. Has there ever been a better level than that?

You know, i was having a lot of fun playing this game. I really did. Outsmarting the covenant, flanking, riding tanks and chilling with the Marines was awesome. There wasn't a lot of guns to play with but every method of killing your enemies was still satisfying. then the flood came into the picture, and the game turned into an unimaginative generic zombie shooter. Nevermind how dizzy it gets you trying to shoot insects all the time. I just dont understand why i have to follow the blue ball (who is clearly evil by the way) listening to him humming while kiting every enemy i come across. Ive been doing this for the past hour and i still haven't gone through this stage. Just empty halls full of this insect parasite shit whatever and its fuckin annoying. I tried just running across the level without having to kite every mob but i always have to reach a location where i have to hold my position without any back up and its just horrible. I hope this will end soon and il never have to fight the flood again in the game or the next installments. I cant believe how fast things change. from one of the best FPS ride i ever played into a boring dark crawl just hoping to find a different enemy. I miss the little covenant fuckers, Knocking them with the butt of my rifle while they sleep was fun.

some of the best games are like that. plenty of flaws but the good is so good you don't mind. System Shock 1's interface is archaic as fuck and the enemy sprites aren't even as high resolution as doom 1, but god damn if it isn't an incredible experience and my favorite fps single player campaign, even if it's more like ultima underground meets metroid than a traditional fps. I feel the same way about Mystical Ninja Goemon. glitchy as fuck and the camera is worse than even other contemporary 3d platformers had, but it practically oozed personality and content.

that's reminds me of how I felt about mario 3d land when I played that a few months back. they translated smb3 gameplay perfectly to 3d, but it was lacking the personality that smb3 had. I think even just a real world map like 3 and world on snes had, and more interesting backgrounds could have fixed that. still, the gameplay was so damn perfect I didn't mind, though I didn't care nearly enough to 100% the game. now with kirby, they've got personality and gameplay balanced excellently and that hasn't died down, I don't think they've ever messed that up iirc, even on the side games. even the pinball game of all things is memorable and unique. the worst I can think of is that the yarn game was way too easy, but it still had personality and fun regardless. the most recent one, planet robobot, blew my ass away and I was just hoping for a solid kirby game.

It's been a LONG time since I've played halo. There are three things I want to say.
1: I think the covenant come back
2: The flood are in the next 2 games
3: The best thing with Halo is co op, if you thinking chilling with the marines is good, a couchbro is the absolute best. Flank tanks, have a good gunner for your warthog, all the good shit. Incidentally there's only one halo shooter I've not played.

I didn't find any of the halos added very much, but aside from having to play as the arbiter in 2 which could have been cool but really just sucked, the actual core of the game doesn't get ruined in any way either.

If you just want to kill covenant ODST is pretty good and the waves mode is also fun with multiple friends. Not quite as superheroic though. Oh and Reach would be a good one too.

Bungie was under a LOT of pressure from Microsoft to get the game out in time for the Xbox release. The game is, unfortunately, a half finished game; they mirrored the level structure so it plays like a palindrome. The Library probably seems so goddamn long because it was half finished, and they just had to copy paste the level design in order to extend it. Really unfortunate, but you're absolutely right about the first half of the game being amazing, the second half is quite a let down by comparison. Microsoft's mismanagement of the franchise is definitely noticeable in halo 1 through reach, but once Bungie left and Microsoft put together 343 studios, the quality of the franchise just went down the tubes. Turns out you can't just throw massive amounts of money at something and expect anything other than increased quantity.

Thought of buying the PSVR today, even got in my car to go get one. On the way there I realized I wouldn’t use it properly until Skyrim comes out. So here I am after 4 straight hours of Peach Beach Splash wondering if the VR Dressing Room would be worth getting it early anyways.

Then I find out it’s only been released for the Japanese version.

Something is missing in my life and it might be VR Anime Girls and I have no way of knowing yet.

The flood levels are a huge pain in the ass but they do have a reason to be there; by that point the difficulty kind of levels off. The flood are way harder to fight and actually do a good job at being slightly terrifying. I also think while it's obvious they're a spin on zombies, they made them pretty original.

Like everyone else said; hurry up and beat it so you can bask in Halo 2

I just did. I'm not sure what to say, there's a lot of things that played out the way i expected them to be but others not so.
I've been told Master Chief is a generic super soldier but honestly, for how little he said he expressed a lot and i liked him. I really enjoyed the first part of the game but kinda struggled with the second one. I really liked fighting with the marines at the start of the game. The Mexican amigos and that one Irish guy were not too serious and i liked that part. The captain pissed me off a lot cause he kept walking infront of me while im shooting. The second part felt really lonely, and didn't make much since. I liked when i was part of something bigger rather than a one man army.

I died a lot at the start of the game but that was mainly my fault, but the second part was because i didn't have any ammo or i walked backwards into a wall. The flood was just an unimaginative enemy and i didn't like them. I liked the covenant a lot cause i spent my time killing them and laughing at them, and when they killed me you can hear them laughing at my corpse as well. When you stick them with a plasma grenade they run around like maniacs until it blows up, and you do the same if it happens to you except run straight into the enemy and try to take as many with you as possible. There was something really fun about having that type of relationship with the enemy. The flood on the other hand, had too much health and no imagination. Maybe i shouldn't have played it at heroic, but i was told legendary is just too much and regular difficult wont offer any real challenge. But it got a lot better after i got into the covenant ship. With the small corridors i got a lot of chances to crowd control the flood. I was able to just kinda kite them into corridors and blowing them up with the grenade, and it worked all the way to the end since i could do the same in the Pillar of Autumn. I can see the similarities between the game and Destiny only when it comes to the flood. Just chasing you while shooting is just not fun, at least not for me. I heard Destiny is just more of the same and not that much content. Maybe by the time i play Halo 4 i'd probably have had my fill of Bungie games. Its funny, first time i tried to kite the enemy to the entrance of the area hoping they would hit the invisible wall like Destiny but the flood didn't give a fuck and just kept coming.

I liked the ending. Bungie knew what they wanted to do with Halo storyline and i liked that. So many games try to leave an ambiguous ending cause they're not sure if they will make a second installment and it ends up being anticlimactic. not with this one.

Its a good game and i would recommend it to anyone not as a piece of a gaming history but as a genuinely fun game to play. Its definitely one of the better shooters out there and still holds up to this day. I would probably suggest they choose the regular difficulty. Il start on Halo 2 but i heard its really long and im hoping il finish it this weekend.

its not turn based, but there are dice rolls

If you cant use a warhammer and you try to hit shit with one it will "miss" even though it seems like you are hitting.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNXYrAkUntU
Early on in this video the guy hits like once every 6 swings. The top yellow bar in the bottom left is the enemy hp.

Once you get good stats you wont miss hardly ever. The guy in the video is using godmode, he should be creamed after 2 hits from that ebony mace.

Best way to play is to avoid combat all together until you have 60 or so in the combat skill you'd want to use. Otherwise you will always be out of fatigue missing every rat and cliff racer that wants to nibble on you.

Well the dice rolls are not that extreme. My character has 40 in shortblade and it's been more than enough so far. Honestly I'd say even 30 skill in your chosen weapon will get you far early game.

What people often forget about Morrowind is that the dice rolls counts for NPCs too. You might not hit, but so might not the enemy hit you. Sure this means some misses on your part, but hey you can also exploit this feature like a devil and become an unhitable God.
Which is what the end result of any character is in Morrowind tbh.

NOoo. No.

They changed the whole system so the games actually all use the Reach engine, which means it's not Halo 2 at all in anything but name considering. The original has the best physics in the series and I would not doubt they removed some of the massive amounts of dialogue.

Tbh Halo was meant to be played on an original Xbox anyways. You can pick one up for 50$ then get Halo 1+2 for cheap and you'll have an entire console library at your command. Please, after experiencing Halo 1 don't fuck up your impression of 2 by playing the shitty remake

Is that how it is? well i wasn't really going to buy the Xbox One just to play four games. My problem now is that i have to buy an Xbox to play Halo2 and im guessing the story wont make much sense if i decided to skip it and just play the halo games on the Xbox360. Issue is i think its close to impossible for my to find an Xbox where i live, it was never a popular system here and its old. I'm just gonna keep trying to get the PC copy to work, if i cant il just have to leave town and go looking for a working Xbox somewhere.

If your 360 is hooked to the internet I think one of the updates made Halo 2 backwards compatible. You could check online to see. An old Xbox is a decent investment for gaming if you find it cheap, lots of classics. You might get a DRE and have to clean the lens but that's an easy process with a tutorial. Check Craigslist and local shops but eBay has some cheap ones too

Local shops are a crap and it will take time to get Halo 2 from amazon since its the weekend. Il probably keep looking for an Xbox just to have one incase i want to do something it. But yeah, its backwards compatible and as soon as i get it il get right on it.


Trying to get back into Morrowind. I really want to but it feels like there is this huge wall that i cant get through with this game. I managed to kill the Dark Brotherhood assassin so i got a decent armor and everything but im trying to kil the egg poachers but im missing 90 percent of my attacks. So im suppose to have 60 in short blade but how do you expect me to do that when i cant even get through the second quest from the fighters guild. I suppose its a mistake to try to play this game like Oblivion or Skyrim where shit is a breeze to get through but does the game have to royally fuck me every time i try to do something? I want to play an assassin but i do shit damage to people with no armor and miss 90 percent of the time and i've used up all the health potions i got from the fighters guild.

Wealth beyond measure, Outlander. Why do i feel like they're insulting me whenever they say that?

Scrolls homie

Go buy some cheap but powerful scrolls, they never fail and always hit if you aim right. For money just go find an abandoned ebony mine, theres one between Balmora and the western coast if you poke around a bit.

My first playthrough I did the early balmora mages guild quests to get to the point where I was supposed to plant a fake soulgem in Galbirs chest only I stole all her shit and used those powerful soulgems to make a hat that did 10 hp damage per shot. Since vanilla morrowinds enchanted items had no cast time or cool down I basically had a machine gun hat that I used to murder all the gaurds of Vivec and sold their based Indoril and Ebony gear to creeper to make enough money for trainers.


Check around all the big major cities, there are different trainers all over the place. Use the mages guilds teleportation network to look about

The problem with that is that Destiny is a MMO of sorts, so you wont be able to enjoy the content without other players, it's just handicapping yourself. Destiny 2 isn't bad, you don't need background on the story to really enjoy it, but if you don't have the funds to buy it, I can understand.

I chose to start Horizon Zero Dawn instead of Yakuza Kiwami. I love me some Yakuza, but I can see that game being a colossal time sink for a mile away. I already poured over sixty hours into FFXII:TZA.

Hmm yeah that's kind of an issue. I don't exactly have an abundance of friends that game and even if I did they would probably long past destiny 1.

Another problem is that I don't even have a mic so even if I encountered other players that would probably be difficult

Like an MMO, there are somethings that need a mic like Nightfalls (which are like Heroic version of Strikes and trying to steamroll through it will give you a bad time), Raiding (since that thing always needs coordination) and the Trials of the 9 PVP mode (which is super competitive PVP), but most aspects of the game, like free roaming, strikes, and regular PVP you can get by. If you're not into the multiplayer thing, than the game will be a a bit rough and you wont gear up past a certian light point/power level (I know destiny 2 soft cap is 280 before you actually have to do multiplayer stuff and that's not really a high light level to actually do endgame stuff, not sure what D1 was)

So yeah. If you're not into the multiplayer aspect of games, Destiny is not a series for you since the game is meant to be played with friends/other players) but you can get by by yourself for a while.

Yeah, so i figured how to get dat gold in Morrowind thanks to everyone's advice.
Truth be told, I played the game like a all the other Bethesda games, meaning i expected that the fighters guild in the town i was suppose to be staying in had all the easy jobs and all the other were higher level and was suppose to leave them for later. The thing is, egg poachers were actually pretty tough. I thought that, since its the second mission, i was suppose to overcome it easily and move on but really its nothing like that. Its a game that kinda rewards you for exploring the world rather than just sticking to one place. In fact, you're not suppose to stay in one place rather go out and explore, get that gold, and use it to level up your skills. Once i got that through my thick skull, the game was actually really fun. Sometimes i would run into a quest that i couldn't do, thinking in Oblivion or Skyrim terms, i though i must have done something wrong that broke my character rather than realize i just wasn't in the right level to take on any of those dicks. but you cant really blame me for thinking that, the egg poachers didn't have any armor or weapons except for the pick axe, if you get killed by those guys that looked weak as hell you would think you've done something wrong in the character creation. after taking the game in that way, everything started to make sense. I must have made over seven characters trying to figure where i went wrong.

I managed to save up enough gold to level up my long Blade to a point where i stopped missing so much. and from this point on, i continued to look for gold as much as i tried to gain experience without getting myself killed. That meant that i had to do odd jobs in the fighters guild in large towns like Vivec where i wasn't expected to go out and kill shit but rather just go threaten people or collect debts. I still die alot cause im not really well equipped to fight my way through dungeons and don't want to spend my money on scrolls just yet but i've managed to survive fighting ghosts in tombs which feels good.

I've spent hours playing this game and i feel like I've only just scratched the surface. But i feel sad knowing that its superior in every way to the games that came after it. It must have been really disappointing to all the Morrowind fans who played Oblivion expecting it to be the same or better. Must've felt like a real kick in the nuts. I still fully intend to enjoy this game as much as i can, then go through it again with a mage build instead cause i feel thats where it really shines. I still use magic to light up the way in the dungeons but nothing else. I spent a good portion of the game wondering why everybody knew that i was an Outlander until a character explained it to me.

Cool that you're starting to get it. It's not meant to be played like Oblivion/Skyrim.

Some tips for you in the future though:

The Thief Guild has very well paying jobs at entry, and doesn't necessarily require high level or a thief character. They do involve some general skill/cheese but are usually very very satisfying to pull off. Recommended for any character during the early game. Also, robbing houses in general is an easy way to get that sweet sweet gold, merchants doesn't care if the shit you peddle is stolen in this game.

Magic in this game is not only extremely OP, it has a lot of utility as well. I invariably play a mage-centered character in Morrowind because of this. Teleportation, super-jump and levitation will help you a lot in getting around. Also due to the large bag of tricks magic has, combat involving a mix of regular weapons and spells makes it much more enjoyable.

Dungeon entrances are marked on your local map. Several of the entrances are often cleverly hidden by the terrain, so checking the local map periodically when exploring is a very good idea.

You can get one of the best rings of the game at start. Mentor's Ring; Willpower and Intelligence +10 North of Sedya Neen, along the coast near the cliffs, is a tomb. At the end you'll find a unique urn containing the ring, and a named pile of ash. Bring probes for traps, and note that there's a powerful scroll in the dungeon that will help you against the urn's guardian if you go there at level 1.

  • Create/find resist magic equipment or potions
  • Equip them boots
  • Unequip shabby magic resist gear
  • Diminshed blindess stays
  • You still go Sonic fast

If anything you can also turn up the brightness of your monitor lol

Some other random tips:
Deadra ruins are a great place to find loot and Daedric weapons
Steal shit, a lot of great equipment (ebony and glass armor for example) can be found in somewhat easy places (vaults in Vicec for example).
Easy quest to get a Deadric weapon (doable at lvl 1), all you gotta do is find an ebony mine and tell a guy in Vivec. Keep going south from the egg mine south of Balmora, go over a bridge and you should find it. One of the Hlaalu guys in Vivec will give a weapon of your choice.

Heres a funny bug about the boots of blinding speed, the blind effect is supposed to not only make the screen dark but also fuck with you accuracy in combat. However unpatched the blind effect actually makes you more accurate, so even though you cant see what you are swining at you will still hit 100% of the time with them on.
Like another guy said, make a cheap short term resist magic spell of 50% or above and then slap the boots on quickly to see fine

Well we don't want to help the guy get OP too early now. Honestly though there are ways of getting some of the best gear straight off the boat, it's better if you work for it yourself. The peon-to-demigod progression of Morrowind is one of the things that makes it so magical.

One last hint though: There's a scamp merchant in a mansion of orcs in Caldera that has 5000 gold. Good place to sell off loot items that reaches 5k+ in value. I think there's another merchant with more, but he's hard to reach and harder to find.

Just got Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus for my birthday. I've never played one second of a Wolfenstein game in my life, but they seem cool enough, but I really did want this one because the trailers and gameplay I'd seen look cool as hell.

So I've spent a few hours going over the entire plot of Wolfenstein 3D, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Wolfenstein (2009), Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, and Wolfenstein: The New Order. Also read up on some backstory for ol BJ Blazkowicz.

Now I've got the backstory all squared away, have the timeline of events im imagining to have taken place prior to The Old Blood/New Order, getting mentally inside the boots of Terror-Billy and am ready to collect me some Nazi scalps.

Already went through the recap of last game, and the flashback sequences to BJ's *brutal* childhood in the 1910s/20s while he recuperates from the end of the New Order After all these years, all these missions our boy finally got that shitbird Deathshead AND stabbed him up good. Just woke up on his stolen Nazi U-Boat HQ. It's now 1961 and the damn Nazis still rule the world. And worse still, they're attacking said U-Boat HQ. And I can't walk yet. But I can see a wheelchair and some guns....looks like I've got a lotus work to do. Best not keep the Nazi scum waiting.

So I'm finally trying Diablo 3. I have the game on the hardest difficulty it will let me choose and it's disgustingly easy. Occasionally there will be one enemy that just takes 2 minutes of whacking to kill, and might have a very slow and telegraphed attack you dodge, but that's the peak of the difficulty. All other flaws aside, this is really killing it for me.

Anyone got any good tips for achieving 100% happiness in a large settlement in FO4?
I looked at my trophy list the other day and was only like 4 off from platinum so I figured why not, and the settlement trophy is one i've yet to get. I have a ways to go because i've got to get my charisma up and a few perks like local leader 2 for the surgery center stalls but i've already got tons of water, enough food for 24 settlers, built a large bunker for beds and set up an area where I can put the medics so really all I need to do is work on getting caps for the stalls, upping the defense and sending settlers to starlight which is the settlement I picked. I figured I can just do all that while working on the other trophies I missed

Oh shit! They chopped her goddamm head off! They kept acting like they weren't gonna actually do it, but they did!
So far I can't quite tell if Blazkowicz is permanently crippled or just still recovering, but at least I got a suit that lets me walk around now.

Weirdly, I've unlocked some other guns and dual-weilding, but still find a single maschinenpistole to be the most effective weapon so far. I got a bit startled when I tried to dual-weild for the first time and pressed L2 expecting to aim better, only for the gun in my left hand to go off lol.

It's gonna take me a little bit to get acclimated to the "first person shooter" gameplay style, since I mainly play open world sandbox games that offer a bit more freedom than ones like this, but I'm already enjoying myself and the narrative.

Only in comparison to other Fallout games. It's still a fun game in its own right. Just with super casual-ized RPG mechanics. And sure dialogue options have scaled down thanks to adding a voice actor for the player character, but I still found enough variety to give my characters unique personalities. Also the Weapon/Armor modding and the overhauled Power Armor mechanics are amazing innovations that I can't imagine future games not including.

Fallout: New Vegas but with Fallout 4's graphics, combat mechanics (refined shooting, grenade hotkey, overhauled VATS), weapon and armor customization, power armor mechanics, and survival mode mechanics would be the greatest Fallout game ever made.

It's the R&M art style's "neutral or default mouth state. "Resting mouth: you might call it.
Kinda sorta similar to the way the eyelids cover the top third or so of everyone's eyes in Seth McFarlane cartoons when they're in a relaxed state.

Also, I just learned while writing this post that Roiland confirmed via Twitter that it's somewhat of a throwback to Ren and Stimpy's art style.

I didn't even realize this game was still going.

The main time consuming activity in that game was traveling. It took fucking forever to travel somewhere, but that did make the game feel huge to me. Walking somewhere was a painfully slow process of carefully avoiding aggro the whole time.

I heard a couple years ago they had made it a lot easier. It was a bitch of a grind way back in the day. I remember spending 5 or 6 hours, most of that walking through an area trying to avoid aggro, just to finish part of the quest to get my artifact weapon. And you still had to have someone with a beastmaster fully leveled(or a full party) who was willing to take 6 hours out of their day to go finish the quest with you.

I remember the creator of Spawn said he wanted him in a more violent game, so likely MK11. I'm more surprised that Ed Boon was actually able to get Hellboy and TMNT in the game as well as having a crossover between DC and Mortal Kombat in the first place. I mean tell that to me 10 years ago and I'd think you were crazy.


>>709965
You gotta remember this is the Injustice universe, so they're running out of characters in that storyline anyway. I've only read the 5 years preceding the first game, but Joker shouldn't be in this game since he's dead, and Scarecrow is literally just a hallucination as well, so that's a weak point for having him in.

I saw a lot of people thinking the Trenchcoat was either Rorsach Constantine, with Rorsach not even being in the Injustice universe, and Constantine being pretty much useless anyway. The only way I can see Constantine in a fighting game is if all his moves are just throwing his friends in front of him as human shields and having them die while he fumbles with a gun and cries afterwards.

At least since they were going off-canon, they went crazy with it. I'm hoping for Power Rangers next game because of the Justice League crossover, or pic related

Steam needs to prevent people from leaving reviews on games unless they have play times over the 2 hours refund limit. I see so many reviews now of people giving wall of text negative reviews for games when they have 0.5 playtime. This just causes people to briggade the review section and mass negative review a game they dont like.

AKA half of the negative reviews for Call of Duty WW2 are just SJW GAME NOT HISTORICALLY ACCURATE

I don't think I'll ever have a desire to buy a CoD style shooter again but the idea that women WW2 soldiers or whatever is some people's realism tipping point for that series is pretty fucking funny. Trigger warning: contains graphic scenes of troops relaxing at base camp playing Atari 2600 games - when historically the Atari 2600 had not been invented yet - that sensitive players may find disturbing.

I was more upset that they had a Colonel, an 0-6 who probably has more time in the Army than about 90 of his Birgade, was out casually discussing with a 2LT and the SFC instead of the I don't know, the company's Captain and their 1stSgt. And giving a pre-mission Hoorah speech to a platoon just going out to relieve a strongpoint. Literally in all my time in, I saw my Brigade Commander Twice. He has more important things to do like control the movements of 1000s of people across a large swath of land.

Also, no competent leader would send someone alone on a rescue mission. They would get demoted in a fucking heartbeat.

Plus the game is super cliche so it makes it for boring. And COD WW2 doesn't have a Soviet Campaign, so you can at ease with the American Cunts nonsense, so yes, even with the Women Army Corps (who had mostly jobs waaaaay back in the rear) the Americans didn't field women for combat.

The people sperging out don't really care much for historical accuracy anyway, they're just being retarded for the sake of it. If the game fielded female combat troops for the Nazis outside the Battle of Berlin (where literally everyone from the Whermacht to the Hitler Youth, man or women had to pick up a gun and fight a losing battle) then I can understand the sperging. REEEEEing for Soviet women fighting on the front is literally asinine because it's something that actually happened. If they fielded female combat troops for the Americans/British in their game then i'd find their military advisor and drown him for being retarded.

Hyper Light Drifter. This game is really fun, beautiful, pretty unique, and has really interesting dungeons and exploration. it really rewards exploration.

So far the game has been somewhat challenging, but then I get to this boss and it's 10x more difficult. I had to put it down after like 8 attempts and I'll pick it back up tomorrow.
It's just fuckin kite-kite-kite-1 and run. Over and over like 50 times. But I'm starting to get a feel for it. Definitely not an easy boss, and a lot more difficult than I was expecting my first boss encounter to be. I might not have gone the easiest/first path though, not sure.

After Playing Halo, i realized that i don't really have an extensive background in First person shooters even though i do enjoy them. I also kinda need to play something full of action between breaks from Morrowind. Im just gonna play the straight up fps games, no tactical games or any thing that requires thinking or going through your inventory except for the highly recommended ones like System Shock. Il also play through the entire series, So il probably play through all the Quake games then move on to Outlaw. I'm Also going to ignore anything released on the Console except for really famous games like GoldenEye.

Since GoG Has a lot of them for really cheap i decided to go through as much as i could. I thought about posting the list here but there are over 57 games. I'm Just going to start playing from the first DooM and keep going from there. There are a lot of famous games that i have played but never finished so im looking forward to all the Nostalgia. Right after im Done with DooM 2 Il play through Heretic, System Shock 1+2 and Star Wars Dark Forces. Games im most looking forward too is probably Clive Barker's series of games and Unreal. I didnt even know Unreal had a campaign, i thought it was always an Arena Shooter.

I have no idea if theyre on PC or console exclusive and i already talked about it ITT, but I'd really recommend playing the new Wolfenstein games. Especially the newest one (which incidentally is the only one I've ever played) "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus." The previous entry and its expansion pack are supposed to be just as good and play in the same fashion, regardless. 3D is obviously a pioneering classic. The original FPS as we know them today. The original two are low tech 80s games made for the Apple II/MS-DOS/Atari & Commadore. Stealth based no less, most people probably wouldn't be interested. The entries that are sandwiched between 3-D and "The New Order" look like they're a mixed bag that may or may not appeal to you, based on your preferences.

But this newest entry...somehow the gameplay is pure action; First Person Shooting with light stealth (although stealth aporoaches are 100% optional and the core gameplay is still all about moving from big ass shootout to big ass shootout), but it's coupled with an actually compelling narrative that provides context for the gunfights. Yet neither one of those aspects ever overshadows the other, resulting in a game that has just enough of a narrative to get the player invested in what's going on and want to participate in the events, but never dwells on it and constantly thrusts the player headfirst into a shitload of action and pure GAME that guarantees to keep them fully entertained throughout. It also has a tendency to be HARD AS FUCK (example: the opening segment forces you to fend off an assault on your submarine HQ while youre stuck in a damn wheelchair), which goes a looooooong ways towards building tension and pressure, jacking the player's heart rate up to astronomical levels when the action heats up.

The gameplay is simple enough on the surface to draw anyone in. Advance through each new map in pursuit of some objective while getting into ever more bombastic shootouts with Nazi soldiers, Nazi officers who, until finally killed, will cause said soldiers to spawn indefinitely, Nazis clad in mech-suits armed with heavy lasers or flame throwers or explosive launchers, Nazi scout drones, and various giant Nazi robots along the way.

You have the standard health and armor meter, the former of which is only capable of regenerating back to 10/100 if it falls below that, however health packs and armor pieces are not at all sparse, so this does not slow anything down. You are armed with a pistol, machine pistols, a rifle, special weapon that depends on an early choice (with the option to dual weild any combo of these guns), as well as grenades and also fire axes for close range melee that can also be thrown like a tomahawk. Plus super heavy weapons that you can pick up off defeated foes, but cannot store in your inventory. Upgrade kits can be found and used to make various kinds of modifications to all of these weapons besides the fire axe and super heavy weapons, while combat itself unlocks various upgrades to your skills, durability, and ammo supply.

The maps you trudge through are also littered with any number of the 7 kinds of collectables scattered throughout the entire game to encourage exploration. Among these are full length music tracks and various readables (newspaper clippings, diary entries, letters, etc) that do a *hell* of a lot to flesh out the narrative, humanize the bad guys, and show us the teeny tiny individual things that were generally insignificant on their own, but combined to create the perfect conditions for the Nazi regime to take over Europe, the United States, and the world.

It's a good ass game. It clearly wasn't some generic cookie cutter AAA schlock that some detached dev team who're just trying to meet their quotas and deadlines (assassin's creed) shat out at the behest of their corporate overlords. It's a product of tangible tlc that manages to present an entertaining story, but never forgets that first and foremost it's still a *video game* at its core, not a damn movie.

Also, there's a sort of hub area you're taken to between segments of the game, which has a lounge/bar/entertainment section. In this section sits an arcade box, that can be clicked on to play the ENTIRE original Wolfenstein 3-D. The full game, all episodes and their chapters, all the difficulty settings, with the added ability to save/load your progress and also a high score screen. The original first person shooter tucked away within this modern first person shooter. We've come a long way.

I was pretty disappointed with Old blood though, it seem to have abandoned the over the top fun kill all the nazis. Those Sneak Beaky parts were especially aggravating, it just felt like they just didn't belong in the game at all. I'm glad to hear that the gameplay is more similar to New Order.

Nothing Beats TitanFall2 though. Great game that few people seem to care for in my book. Now that Respawn is infected with aids i have very low expectation for a decent Titanfall3.

I don't know if im just tired (Had like three cups of coffee) but im really not getting into Heretic. Its very doom like, especially since i finished M1 and i gotta fight my way through hell shtick is right in my face. Doom must have been really popular during the old days, Heretic doesn't really do anything new besides the inventory. I like how the Maps actually make sense, when its say the crypts im actually AT a Crypt. Doom2 was just awful map wise, they just focused on what they thought was fun rather than tell a story or something like that. They feel a lot more like fan made maps than anything else. Should've never called it Doom2. The Skull was kinda spooky cause im kinda tired and didn't really expect him to do so much damage to me.

Finished Heretic. Mediocre experience, I guess if you compare it to doom it is different enough to enjoy but the way i see it wasn't really that different. Maybe twenty years down the line some twat in cyberspace wont be able to tell the difference between Call of Duty advanced warfare and TitanFall2.

Anyways, System Shock 1+2 is next on the list. This isn't the experience i was looking for in an FPS, i downloaded it anyways just to see what its like. The interface looked intimidating, i thought i was going to be playing one of those convoluted dos games but the shit actually works. Its very interesting game and even though to go at it in a snail pace its still fun. Two thing i don't particularly like, one is how some of the Voice actors sounds like they doing give a damn. I picked up an email of this girl who's stuck in a room talking about how the mutants are all outside and their death is only a matter of time and she sounded like it wasn't her who was going to die and who ever it was she couldn't care less. Two, the music doesn't really match the game plot. Being constantly watched by the Shodan and going through corpses, mutants, and Assassin Cyborgs sounds like a perfect cyberpunk horror setting but the music is
just happy and jumpy that i just don't feel it. I like how she pops up in my cybernetic interface thingy.

lol the music is mostly just trying to rip off down in it off pretty hate machine. I kinda like that, it meshes well with the overly garish color scheme for what the game is trying to be. though I guess it was always trying to be colorful and garish. The whole thing is a perfect encapsulation of the timeframe it came out in and I love it for that reason. I feel the upcoming remake robs it of that aesthetic and wants it to just be a straightforward horror game. which it's entirely good at being, the underlying mechanics of the game are great, but losing the music and colors means it loses some character I think.

Jesus....that seems to seriously confirm that every time Peach was up in Browser's castle, even when he """kidnapped""" her, SHE WAS FUCKING HIM BEHIND MARIO'S BACK!!!

Peach a damn skank. "Oh no, he's kidnapped me! And right before our big date! That's why I'm over here And can't go out with you tonight!"

"I don't know, Daisy...Mario is such a great guy, and I do love him...but guuurl...Bowser is hung like a fucking rhino and he knows how to use that cock better than any man in the kingdoms too. And Mario, despite how amazing of a boyfriend he is (I mean he goes through hell when he comes to "rescue" me)...he's still just a 4'11" broke ass plumber. That's a pretty far cry from a motherfucking King who's the best fuck you'll ever get. Buuuut...King Koopa's still a shit person and doesn't give a fuck about me once he cums. So yeah, I got this set up where Mario gives me what I need emotionally and Bowser physically, and yeah it's kinda fucked up to string those two along...but Mario cant fuck for shit and Bowser IS shit...a girl needs both, know what I mean...sue me!"

Yeah, i take it back the game is pretty spooky. I like how the music changes depending on what kind of situation you're in. SHODAN is pretty scary in general, but just from reading the papers around station i find myself fully despising what humans have become and i welcome her with open arms. Too bad that just means game over so il just keep playing and see what happens anyways. But I agree System Shock is a product of its time and its limitation, and for what it is its actually quite beautiful.

This is the ending

Mario defeats Bowser. As Mario walks up to Peach, Bowser shows up again and pushes him aside. Mario then pushes Bowser aside. Both Mario and Bowser argue with each other while both trying to give flowers to Peach. After a while Peach yells "STOP IT!" both Mario and Bowser look at each other shocked like "holy shit where did that come from". Peach scoffs at them and walks away rejecting both of their bitch asses. Mario and Bowser look at each other dejected. Peach hijacks the Odyssey and leaves Mario and Bowser behind. Peach is now a strong, independent, single woman who doesnt need a man. Roll credits.

wow, that's an even worse scenario than I expected. even mario himself is shit. so mario is now some sort of pest and peach is a strongindependentprincesswhodontneednoman? God damn nintendo. The gameplay is magnificent and obviously the main point, but what tiny scrap of story you add to this sort of game is supposed to justify what you're doing, that's why it's even there. but an ending like that just redefines the whole game as a mindless scavenger hunt and mario as rather shallow rather than a simple hero. It would work as the punchline to a short parody in a webcomic but not for an actual video game, especially a lengthy one like this. even just having a short bit with some fireworks a cake and a thank you or something is enough to make a mario game satisfying. I played mario 3d land a while back and I liked how it was just "bowser is taking shit over, go fuck him up" and that was it. you actually accomplish something. still, the individual levels of odyssey are fun and well done. I'm gonna beat it anyways, though I doubt I'll still try to 100% the game at this point. and here I had just wasted all this time on that dumb 100 jumprope challenge lol. some of those powermoons are kinda arbitrary.

If Mario saves peach for the 10th time would have been an acceptable ending, then its likely that the only reason this ending was unacceptable to these people was that they fear it was trying to push a SJW message.

I'm surprised it took 30 years and like 20 kidnappings for us to get to "Peach gets tired of getting pulled into this bullshit and goes home".

All the dialogue we've seen from Bowser suggests he kidnaps Peach and the toads to fuck with Mario.

Mario and Bowser are friendly enough to play boardgames, tennis, and race gocarts against eachother.
After the tenth time or so, Mario is definitely complicit in Peach remaining an acceptable target in their silly rivalry.

borderlands is one of those series I never touched, I guess I just wasn't that into shooters back when it came out
but lately i've been having an itch for them, also the loot system and environment seem right up my alley. Sadly it doesn't seem that I can get the original for PS4 and sold my ps3 long ago but there is a bundle of borderlands 2 and the pre sequel, which if I'm understanding right the presequel has the same setting as the first game
If I were to get that which should I play first? people seem to like 2 more than the presequel

I bought that bundle a while back and I gotta say that 2 is a lot better. The pre-sequel takes place on a moon that orbits the planet that 1 and 2 take place on. The literal moon jumping and oxygen mechanic kinda annoyed me though.
They're fun shooters but don't expect too much from the loot system, like only 1 in 10 guns you find will be noticably different, the rest will just have slightly different numbers.

I finished it recently. I found the druid was OP as fuck. Aoe out every orifice and then turn into a beast, with buffs to his damage in that form and hit things for 100 damage a swing. I ran with the paladin for a while and she's okay. Good off tank and all rounder. She comes off as cold but she's just got very rigid principles. She's both rational and passionate.

If you haven't got the xpack get it. You can go there now but the first few fights are brutal at level 5. There are some good recruitable companions. The barbarian is awesome, you have to follow the main expack uest to find one of the characters who is... unique.

Sims 4 is free for a while on EA access so i downloaded it and a bunch of sex mods.

Anyways I made a family and things were going pretty well, and while everyone was at school or work, the dad had time off. So I sent him walking around the neighborhood to meet the neighbors. I meet a black dude and he invites me in and we start talking on the couch while watching TV. Then I saw a hottie walking by outside so I made the Dad character call her in so they could meet.

All three of us start talking and everyone seems to like each other. Then the black guy and the girl get up and go outside suddenly, I'm like wait whats going on...my character just sits there on the couch continuing to watch TV.

the black guy and her end up on the back porch and he starts face fucking her. And they just met! Fucking slut. srsly though I died laughing, was not expecting that. Mod is called wickedwhims

Remember in Sims 1 and 2 I used to make a full family of eight grown ups, shove them into a huge and lavish house using cheats, and leave them alone for the most part, watching how they'd get along Big Brother style. They pissed themselves mostly but some of them would establish actual relationships.

You know I'm talking to every named character, of course I found those two. I just found the hunter with the white fox to finally fill out my party at 6. Wish I had another guy who was naturally suited to fighting up front but I'm sure I'll find one soon. I'm playing as a cipher, which is pretty fun, but it means our party is mostly ranged at this point, I have to switch the chanter to melee if there are too many enemies for the fighter. I'm playing honest/benevolent/diplomatic with some clever I guess.

You think I should buy the xpack now? I didn't realize it wasn't end-game content, I was going to wait until I'd progressed further in the story to try it.

It's mid game content. It has a 2 GREAT melee characters (a self scarring stoner monk and a hedonistic mercenary barbarian) in the hub town. There's also a nice axe for your tank and soulbind weapons which you level up by using (and includes the best shield). The DLCs add a couple of post DLC high level challenges, the whole wizard's tower chain and the alpine dragon WILL fuck a low level party up though. Everything else is a bit trivial with a level 11+ party. The level cap goes up and the spells are cool. Having prismatic wall that's better than the D&D version (doesn't hurt allies) on my mage was fucking based but the level 4 fireball that stuns shit was probably the most useful spell. Of course you fight enemies who can spam paralysis and shit as well... You will need the appropriate prayer to protect your party against the lizard dudes.

I think I ran eder with gaun's share and larder door most of the game but that shield plus there's a nice axe with healing. I don't know how up on the mechanics you are, bonuses on gear don't stack. So for your tank bear in mind that there's a cloak of "comfort" and that is separate bonus to all the plus defense shit and so is essentially for them (plus a ring of protection).

If you do it right you can break Durance but he is one of the few NPCs who can have a totally bad ending even if you do his quest. Most of the rest go from bittersweet to nice if you finish their quest depending on what you encourage them to do.

The hardest decision is who you give the ultimate weapon in the second DLC to. It's literally a god weapon, I gave it to my rogue but I sort of wish I'd had someone else who could have used it better because I'd got loads of +crit and +crit chance and was citting for 180 damage per hit with resolution on debuffed enemies without putting it up to legendary quality.

hmm okay, thanks for the info on the xpack, might have to grab that sooner rather than later.

And yeah I noticed the Suppression mechanic in regards to stacking bonuses. I'm probably not the worlds most dedicated min/max'er but I'm definitely paying attention to all that stuff. I'm also running Eder with larder door but I've got him using a sword (forget the name) that you get after doing the Maerwald stuff I think, like a soul reaping sword or something like that. I kind of hate when enemies are immune to damage types so I like that it does both slashing and piercing and I can switch to a fine mace for crushing if I need to. It's less damage but I'm rolling him specifically to tank as many enemies as possible so I don't mind really.

Made it to Defiance Bay before I stopped last night, so hopefully I can find a paladin, barbarian or maybe just another fighter that I can stick up front. I'll probably run two tanks, Durance and the chanter in mid range, and me (cipher) and the wizard at the back. I'm a little torn between the wizard and the ranger I guess, I think the wizard clearly has the potential to do more damage but obviously you have to rest to restore spell uses and he's squishy af. The ranger offers a pet and decent bow damage, but I think as I progress further the bevy of different types of damage that the wizard can dish out is going to be important.

anyway, had a bit of breakfast and I'm right back into it now. it's super shitty outside so i don't even feel bad about being lazy and gaming all day.

It's a cute game, but it gets really monotonous, I think. Even with mods constantly fighting the same enemies quickly becomes a drag. I love that you at least get the invasions by other players creations, but half of those are first-timer fleets, too. Maybe I should just build a good fleet and send it through a wormhole again.

It's also a bit of a dissappointment that designs that work great with me at the controls can get really lackluster when the AI uses them. Especially with the ramming faction I had some nice designs that the AI just doesn't use properly. In fact, one AI quirk I hate is how it tends to fly creations backwards.

So im done with System Shock. I ran into a bunch of hurdles but i managed to figure it all out. Except apparently the Enhanced version i got from GoG got a bug that gets in the way of getting the self destruct reactor code and that drove me crazy cause i spent hours trying to figure it out. there is a lot of back tracking that kinda ruins the momentum of the game for me. In any case, i thoroughly enjoyed the game.

I really cant say what i think about it cause im still shacken up by the final boss fight. That was really creepy, only because the game always manages to get you drop your guard and then freaks you out. I thought i was going to get a hear attack. im kinda scared of my monitor now. fuck.
SHODAN is definitely one of my favorite villains, i like her as a villain so much, i think im going to skip System Shock 2 and come back to her later.

Kinda disappointed with the ending. Maybe Diego had the better idea and i definitely felt the same as he did, but going through the levels you really get to see what SHODAN had in mind for us "insects" and it wasn't pretty. Still, we could have overcome all those crummy human limitations if only we accepted her. meh 2deep4me

Next in my list is Star Wars Dark Forces. I remember playing this one but never finishing it.

>Star Wars Dark Forces

I just don't think jumping Platforms belong in an FPS. I've died so many times just because i couldn't make a jump or i moved to forward and slipped. Its hard cause i cant see where my foot is so i cant really measure how much i need to go. Oh yeah i also cant save and repeat, i have to redo the entire mission so It really kills it. Even in DOOM 2016 the platforming was annoying and really killed the pace of the game. Instead of rip and tearing through demons im jumping around playing fucking Mario. Star Wars Dark Forces would've been an excellent game if it wasn't for this small but annoying part of it.

I knew about it, but i wanted to experience the original first and what the developers wanted for the game. I don't really feel like I've ruined anything by playing it. I do hope the remake will be a good game but i wont be comparing the two since the two games can never be the same. It does look good though.

You can't.
The constraints the developers had influencing their vision and your perception of the same game won't ever be the what they were when the game was released.

A faithful remake that understands the flaws in original and what made it great can be closer to what the original was intended to be than the original is 20 years later.

1950 and 1980 versions of The Thing related.

So out of nowhere yesterday (at least as far as I could tell), Titan Quest was given the AoE2 treatment and got an expansion after 10+ years. Currently downloading it, but it adds a new act based on Norse mythology, a new mastery called Runemaster, new items, and some QoL improvements (hopefully really needed ones like automatically picking up gold).

Just a heads up since it seemed to be released relatively low-key and I'm sure there's some of you that played the shit out of TQ years ago.

>A Faithful remake

That is yet to be seen. I think you have a little too much faith in the remake.
The Original might not have been what the developers wanted in the game but it was still the first attempt and had the most effort and passion. They had an original idea and the team did their best to make it, but the remake will always be the second attempt.
All video gaming development experience constraints be it in the talent department or the budget. Sometimes a game's Flaws is what gives it its character and i think this the case with System Shock. Iron out all the "flaws" in the remake and it will end up feeling like half of the generic FPS games of today.

Take Star Wars New hope and Force Awakens. Beside the different characters, the plot is a carbon copy with CG and sound design but only a disgusting Normie would prefer the force awakens over the original. There is a real feeling of passion and effort in the original and you can never copy it. The best you can try to make a movie that capitalize on the nostalgia and introduce new fans by using modern technology. I really do think its going to be the same case the System Shock Remake.

I can still appreciate the game as much as anyone who played it even 20 years after its release. I might be having a hard time with Morrowind but it isn't cause i was spoiled by Oblivion and Skyrim, im sure plenty of people found the game unclear about its objectives with an unbalanced battle system. People complain that Skyrim dumbed down the series and that might be true, but at least the shit actually worked and didn't require me to reach a certain level with a weapon just to be able to hit things. But If they actually iron out that "flaw" you will have a different experience from the original morrowind and thus its not the same game and shouldn't even be compared but rather played as a modern attempt at remaking an old game, not as a better version of the two.

>Sometimes a game's Flaws is what gives it its character and i think this the case with System Shock. Iron out all the "flaws" in the remake and it will end up feeling like half of the generic FPS games of today.
Only in cases where the "flaw" introduces a mechanic or other aspect that improves the game, and in those cases that mechanic can usually be saved without the other aspects of the flaw.

A cumbersome inventory system that doesn't pause the game resulting from the dev's lack of other inventory systems to draw on is a flaw, but it also makes certain situations more stressful and adds break-points between action to decrease fatigue.
A 1:1 remake will keep it, and new players will find it obnoxious as they accidentally leave things behind or have to waste several minutes trying to figure out how it works.
A poor remake will add a intuitive, streamlined inventory that pauses the game while players figure out the interface.
A faithful remake would be a modern, intuitive inventory, that requires the player to look down, but has a timer between actions such that the time to sort or get something from your inventory is roughly the same.

>played as a modern attempt at remaking an old game, not as a better version of the two.
The remake has members of the original dev team and is funded by people who loved the original, if they do it correctly, then there will be no reason to play the old game, except as an example of how game development has evolved.

honestly I'm more worried about them mucking up the visual aesthetic than the gameplay. I'm gonna miss that kitchy garish 80s/90s cyberpunk look. Gameplaywise I doubt they'll change much besides making the interface a little more intuitive, and maybe make the combat a little harder to balance that (I think the enemies are so slow in SS1 just to make up for the time you take in the interface). I wonder if they'll keep the old voice acting though. The old voicework was clearly amateur but kind of charming because of it, I could go either way on it.

Yeah, a lot of the "flaws" in Morrowind made the game. It wouldn't be Morrowind if you couldn't become a functional demigod through skillfull manipulation of the game's flaws. Some of it was a little too easy, such as the alchemy stacking, but ironically that still ended up making its way into Skyrim as a bug, while Skyrim shed all these "flaws" to move with the times.

So im done with Star Wars Dark Forces. Felt like a real cheap game, making me backtrack the map just to exit the level and the they were maze like for no good reason. I remember i used to get stuck in the third level and i thought it was just cause i was kid and didn't know any better but really the game was a headache. Shooting Storm Troopers with a blaster was good fun though. Platform games and fps shooters just never mixed well.

Anyways im back to the build engine. Im gonna try to go the games that interest me and haven't finished. So its Hexen First, Duke, Blood, Redneck Rampage, Shadow Warrior, and finally Outlaw. Should be a lot of fun, the games are highly regarded.

Hexen so far has been great. Vast improvement over the Heretic. I like the class option they give. i went for the Warrior because my mind is getting a bit tired of going around in circle shooting stuff also magic is for faggots. I played a bit of Blood and Duke and while this game seems somewhat similar i prefer the visuals way more. Especially the lighting effect. Hearing the lighting outside while you see the flash emanated inside the dark church gets me pumped up. I hope there isn't a lot of puzzles, i don't like using my brain too much.

I didn't know the Alchemy stacking was originally from Morrowind. I only used it in Skyrim on my PS4 to make overpowered armor and sword so i wouldn't have to worry about bosses and such on my way to the platinum trophy.

Skyrim was a good game, dumbed down for sure but i cant hold it against it cause there is more than one fix for it using mods. I just hope the Creation Club doesn't hurt the modding scene for this game and the upcoming Elder Scrolls.
