Hope you're all ready for $70 to be the new normal. Surely this new premium means publishers will no longer need to aggressively monetize their games with season passes, gambling, and micto-transactions, right? RIGHT?

the world we experience is shaped drastically by our a priori assumptions and cognitive structures. assuming there can even be a global or near global consensus vastly under estimates how differently people experience the world, even purely based on psychological dimensions like openness vs conscientiousness. thinking people all have the same facts and just form different opinions about them is again, vastly under estimating the depth of the problems we face as modern people

I always saw Kirby as an "it" but Soccereye said that he considers the fairy girl from 64 to be "his" girlfriend so canonically speaking Kirby's probably a boy

It's kinda like Nights Into Dreams except Sega confirmed Nights to be genderfluid, which tbh is fucking crazy for an obscure 90s arcade type game

Depends. Does having a timer on basically everything bother you? If it does, stay away. It's an exploration game but every 22 minutes or so, shit resets and interrupts whatever you were doing and you have to go do it again if you didn't finish. There are also timers within that 22 minute loop. For example, some areas will only be explorable at the start of the 22 minute loop before they're filled up with sand and inaccessible for the rest of the time loop unless you restart.

Also, pretty much all of the backstory and narrative is delivered through notes you find. The main motivation for exploration is to find notes that will tell you how to get to the next area where you can read notes.

If the time loop and notes shit doesn't sound like something that would bother you and you like exploration games then it's worth picking up.

> You look for brothel.
You walk down the main street, but most of the buildings here seem to be stores or other shops. You don't see a single brothel until you notice one that seems to be a bit different.

> You visit brothel.
You walk into the brothel, but instead of a line of whores, you find a man behind a desk. He is about your height, but much wider.

> You ask man if this is a brothel.
He tells you that it is in fact a sheriff's office. You are asked to explain yourself, and you tell him that you were just asking since you saw a line of women going into the place.

This thing is great, but it does lose the plot sometimes. I went fantasy, noble, and repelled the initial orc invasion, earning the title Count Bloody, then ran into a series of people named Ian and found out everyone there was named Ian, was served dinner by cook Ian, went to be and woke up insane I guess lol.

You are Squiggles, a ranger living in the kingdom of Larion. You have a hunting bow and a quiver of arrows. You have been searching for a mystical beast for 3 months tracking it through the forest. As you crouch behind a clump of trees you see it, a large black creature almost as big as a bear, eating an old man.
You are so shocked you don't even react quick enough to shoot it before it scurries away into the trees. You curse and hurry after it, reaching for your bow as you go.

> You light the whole forest on fire in order to kill the mythical beast.
You hurry after the creature, ignoring the pain in your foot. The creature sprints away, but you are faster and manage to hit it with an arrow and a lit arrow and a branch the creature has been eating.

> You set the forest on fire.
The creature runs as it catches on fire, trying to put the flames out with its paws but only succeeding in scalding them. Its terrible yelp of pain is music to your ears and you laugh out loud as you follow it.

> You trap the beast in a ring of flaming arrows.
You hurry ahead, lighting branches and arrows along the way. The beast charges towards you, and you set the ring alight, hoping it will follow the flames.

> You snare the beast in a flaming bear trap.
You hurry forward and find the creature bleeding profusely from the ears and nose. You trap it in a bear trap and head to the village with it, arriving just as the sun is setting.
As you walk into the village, everyone stares at you. You have their attention.

> You say "What? Is this about the fire?"
You are greeted by silence.
"Is this about the fire?" you ask, gesturing at the forest. "I saved lives, remember?"
You are finally greeted with applause.

> You say "I'm so glad you're not mad I burned the forest down just to kill a bear"
You are greeted by laughter.
"No, no," the Chief says. "We're not mad. You did the right thing."
He takes you to a hut, and inside is a crib. In the crib is a beautiful baby bear.

> You set the baby bear on fire.
You hold the bear alight and it starts to smoke. The other villagers hold you back as you start to laugh. "What?" you say. "The baby deserved it."
Your laughter is met with stunned silence. You are taken to a cell and held for the rest of the night.

Yeah, that part definitely scared the shit out of me. I have a similar experience playing Dead Space 1. ]As soon as I turned around from a workbench, this necromorph was in front of me. There were a few moments in TLOU2 where Naughty Dog created moments of false relaxation. Another game that comes to mind that does this pretty well is Alien Isolation. It would have been cool to see more of that in TLOU2.

This made me feel better about myself lol. Haven't spent that much though.

The most I spent was around 200$ in Planetside2, mostly on unique weapons, armor, and perks. Not the best player by far but it made my experience more enjoyable... plus one of them came with a 6month experience boost that I have yet to activate.

I spent 30$ in the original Dead Frontier zombie MMO a long time ago cause I couldn't get an 8th of bud. I got this titanium sword that can be used at level 1 with no melee skill required, thus allowing me to focus my character build on machine guns and explosives and making starting up a breeze. Then temporarily traded the sword to myself on other accounts to make a bunch of level10 farmer slaves with which to provide my main account more wealth and resources.

Another time same situation, couldn't get weed so I bought some bonds (can be redeemed for 14days membership or sold for gold) in Runescape. Used some for in game cash and still have the rest.

99cents on a mobile game for a skeleton skin. Think it was that Forgotten Tales MMO, then after buying it everyone in game kept offering me in game cash to buy a skin hah. Quit playing it though, boring grindfest... Runescape atleast has a social environment.

That's all I can recall as far as MTX. Planetside was worth it, Carapace and Bionics perks make for some unique class builds and the unique weapons and armor are really cool, cannot be unlocked unless bought. Plus I have a plasma laser cannon on my tank and car now.

When I got my first job I spent maybe $60 a month on a TPS I really enjoyed, spending that money on their ingame lottery to win equipment with the best stats that lasted forever and looked good, totaling up about $300. I should note the 'best' was only maybe 3-5% better than what you could get through ingame currency at 1/50 the cost, but there were unique cosmetic options from the lottery as well.

Then the developers added a cash shop where you can rent equipment with even better stats for more money, and changed the gameplay to have a much lower skill floor, and changed the way my permanent items I spent money for worked so it cost more to use them than you could win by playing. The cash shop best was now 20-30% better than what you could get ingame across all stats including things like increased movement speed which totally broke the game.

After that I've been pretty wary about putting money into any sort of online game that's still being updated and I certainly don't put any money into online PvP games. I did put money into a mobile game I was playing a lot later on, but I had played that game hundreds of hours in a situation where I couldn't play traditional games, I felt I got some entertainment for the money I put in, though I stopped playing the game after a point and the power creep was relentless, making the things I earned not good enough for any new content.

I don't mind mtx if it's only for cosmetics. When you start being able to buy weapons or stats that turns me off right quick.

Even then, I think of a particular example of pushing cosmetic mtx, in Maplestory there is an early quest that gives you a helmet that is essentially the best piece of equipment for your head slot for the next 50 levels. It is goddamn ugly as shit, it is literally the severed head of the quest enemy. But! You can buy a cash shop hat that will go over any other hat while keeping it's stats, so obviously you want to cover that shit up because to just not use the quest reward would severely cripple your ability for the next 30+ hours of gameplay. The worst part is cosmetics in MS are only rentals.

Steam has a bunch of demos for upcoming games up this weekend. Kind of like a quarantinE3. Any one else have some recommendations for demos to check out? So far I've tried:

>Grounded
First person "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" style survival game from Obsidian. Can only play a 30 minute slice, and there's not a lot of content yet, but I can see sinking some time into this when it comes out of early access. Like Subnautica, it appears to have a nice hand crafted map to explore, and isn't heavy on the hunger/thirst meter babysitting.

>Ghostrunner
First person cyberpunk ninja parkour kill em' up. Hotline Miami hard, but super satisfying to chain wall jumps, slides, air dashes and grappling hooks to cut a nigga in half. Banging music too.

>Gestalt: Steam and Cinder
If you're getting 2D pixel art Metroidvania fatigue, it's probably not going to convert you, but I love games like these, so I'll probably check out the full release. It's got a cool steampunk western aesthetic, nice atmospheric world, and the combat system could be fun as it opens up.

Fuck me Curse of the Obra Dinn is good, isn't it? Never played a game that gave me such a sense of accomplishment. Pleased with myself that I've not used a guide yet, although it did take a while for me to get into. I'm doing what Yahtzee suggested in his review and just trying to do small bite size play sessions at a time.

Other than that I've bought Space Hulk: Deathwing to play with my friends, along with MGS5 (One of the reasons I bought a gaming PC in the first place) and 2 point hospital.

Finished Obra Dinn in one sitting. It was pretty good. Although near the end, it felt kinda like I just had to guess who a few of them were by process of elimination. Managed to finish it and get everything figured out though.
