Title: What video games are you currently playing?
Post by: romevi on Tue, 03 January 2017, 12:40:22
Can be retro/modern/PC/mobile/Tiger Electronics/etc.

Currently playing Chrono Trigger. Been putting it off for so long. Now that I have a bit of a break from studies Iíve been hunkering down when the rest of the family is asleep and trying to play as much as I can until school starts again.

[attach=1]

Not far into it (about maybe a fourth, if that), but so far I really like it. The story and characters are a bit cliche by today's standards, but they are colorful and relatable. The battle system is very good, and I can see myself tweaking it soon to fit my needs. Playing on the DS Lite made me realize how small the screens are (been used to the 3DS XL screens), but it's definitely manageable.

Also playing Solitaire Decked Out when I'm on the train. Surprisingly, it's very addictive and my favorite iteration of digital solitaire by far.

Age of Empires 2 HD: Rise of Rajas expansion just released the other week. Nice to see it getting updates and patches after nearly 18 years.

Probably the only game from the 90s still in active development by the original makers.  :cool:

AoE2HD is NOT developed by the original Ensemble Studios staff.

Instead, devs of the Forgotten mod were hired to work on the Forgotten Empires expansion, while trying to maintain basically a fork. The HD edition has been a lackluster, though, with new bugs, multiplayer lag/sync problems etc.

I'm still entirely convinced, that the original AoE2 (that you can buy in a box on Amazon) with community patches and Voobly multiplayer client is a much better game to this day. I've bought the HD only for new campaigns.

You're ruining my fun.

Voobly and HD each have their pros and cons it would seem.

Was playing Pokemon Moon, but then TitanFall 2 went on sale and figured I'd give it a shot.  Pretty addicting so far.  Also log in to Runescape almost daily, but just to check on stuff.  More of a cycle for that game.  Some months its addicting, and others its bleh.

Actually, I haven't had much time for AoE2 since African Kingdoms came out. Before that, the HD edition had been terrible, and add my dislike for Steam and poor performance in Wine back then. However, I hear, that Wine support has improved and Voobly now works with HD, thus even if you get the modern Steam release, you aren't stuck with its ****ty multiplayer. I believe pros still play the original boxed version though, and I find it much better too. In part thanks to content like Age of Chivalry: Hegemony.

Been running through this again (apparently Nier Automata has ties). May not be the best when it comes to actual execution (720P  :rolleyes: ) but I need more of it dark satiric quirks. Still not gonna beat it though. F*ck dat end bossfight!!!  >:D

There can be a bit of lag/delay in HD but it's otherwise been rock solid for me as of late. I used to get massive frame drop that would make it unplayable even with just 3-4 players.

Been hooked on old school Runescape. Hadn't played anything really for the past two years because of only having one 8 year old laptop (Thinkpad X200s). Started playing like Monday, have put ~25h in already. It's probably a passing thing, just need to get to the point that grinding it just too time consuming and not at all fun. :D

Yeah sometimes, and the unit mapping is said to be worse, though I don't notice a massive difference.

It's far from perfect, for sure. But it's still such a great game and HD absolutely brings in more users since it's on Steam as a currently supported game.

Downwell. It's a Japanese shooter/platformer type thing. Maybe a smidge of Spelunky about it but more arcadey. You fall down a well shooting things with your gunboots. They recharge when you land on a platform or bounce on an enemy (but there are enemies you can't land on). The way to earn lots of extra health and survive past the second level is by combo-ing things on the way down without hitting the ground. Bloody difficult but incredibly fun. If you want something pick-up-and-play for 10 minute blasts every now and then it's spectacularly good.

Also playing Torchlight 2. I didn't like it much for the first half hour but I'm starting to get into it now. The story seems a bit dry and the graphics direction looks a bit middle of the road but the old clicking and leveling stuff is working its magic. I never got around to playing the Diablo games and this was on sale so I said I'd give it a lash.

I got Torchlight 2 on a Humble Bundle some time ago and got through the game in about 20h. Really liked it but couldn't justify playing the next mode because I used a single weapon for almost whole time of the game and well - it gets boring. It's fun and I liked it better than the first one though. If you're into action RPG's than I suggest checking out Path of Exile. If only I had a better PC I'd play the **** out of it!

UT is my favourite arena combat game and one of my all-time favourite games, period. When it first came out my coworkers and I battled over the office intranet after hours. good times! It's the only game that's perpetually installed on all of the computers in my home.

Age of Empires 2 HD: Rise of Rajas expansion just released the other week. Nice to see it getting updates and patches after nearly 18 years.

Probably the only game from the 90s still in active development by the original makers.  :cool:
I was suckered into getting the HD version after not playing the game in many years. It looks great and satisfies my need for nostalgia but it's just not the same somehow. Probably because the friends I used to play it with don't play any longer  :(

Samezies. I wanted to restart a game after discovering I had the special edition, got me some mods, started a full mage character so I don't have to rely on sneak, because that's just boring.

I really like the house mods, the amount of effort some people put into them is amazing. The Elysium Estate just outside Whiterun is my favourite.

I had discomfort after about 15 minutes..

Ignored it,  then after about 30 minutes.. I just couldn't take it no more,  it was this dull pain in the back of my eyes..


This is actually a major problem they're trying to solve with current VR hardware.. Vergence / Accommodation reflex

There is a certain Reflex to your eyes,  correlating the inward rotation and the focus of the lens in your eye.

These things are used to moving together in conjunction..   

You develop this reflex beginning the day you began to see...



With current vr technology..  it's a fixed focus system..   Which means no matter the perceived distance to object,  the lens in your eye has to stay in the same focus distance..


So the problem is,  now with vr,  you're breaking the reflex,  which can have mild to severe consequences..



They're especially worried about this problem for Children,  because children are still in the development stage of their ocular circuits and pathways...

My coworker has a Vive and doesn't report any issues with him or his girlfriend. He keeps teasing us with the possibility of a VR party so the rest of us can try it out...

Anyway-- he and I also keep lusting after FFXV. I am an FF fan, while he is just interesting in testing the waters... I don't have a PS4 or Xbox One, so I will be waiting a while before I commit to actually playing this game unfortunately... I never considered watching Japanese streamers play! That is a good idea... if not slightly creepy. :P

I preordered the Rift and I've had it for about eight months now. I've used it upwards of 12 hours in a single day, sometimes four to five hours at time and I've never had any issues other than some discomfort around the facial interface.

Playing some Diablo 3 again after 3 year hiatus. They really just added one more class? Couldn't come up with a second? And the cheap way the cutscenes are done in still images like the Street Fighter V "story" mode pisses me off, Blizzard is supposed to be all about production quality.

The game itself is good, a lot of rebalancing since I last played which is nice. I really like Adventure Mode.

Has anyone here played the newest Hitman? Just got the full game for half price on sale and I've seen mixed reviews. Guess I'm just wondering if I should be rushing to play it since I already own it lol. Unlike a lot of people, I didn't absolutely hate Absolution. I understand that the stealth mechanics were kinda ****, but it was still plenty of fun. Unfortunately, I've been out of my room so much, my computer hasn't even been turned on in two or so months, much easier when school gives you a laptop I guess. I have still been playing a ton of 2k11 though (one of the only games I really want to play that this Thinkpad can run and that doesn't require a mouse and keyboard).

A friend of mine recently got me into Ragnarok Online. I'm weirded out by the click-to-move control scheme, but it's fun enough to hold my attention atm.

I've been on-and-off with gaming recently, mostly sticking to f2p mmos or browsing the good old steam library for something quick and easy. Looking forward to Star Citizen's more complete builds, but haven't checked it out since early 2.4.

Ragnarok is one of the best MMO I have played.I had played it for 3 years since launch.

My friends are still playing video games all day even though they have jobs. I just don't have the time for it anymore and I don't know what allows them to do it. Probably very little sleep.
They all made it to 65 during the beta I hit around level 19.

I loved LIMBO and I was ecstatic when I found out Playdead had a similar game in the works but, man, I didn't expect to be blown away with INSIDE. I kept having to pause the game at certain "milestone" moments to literally keep from laughing and/or crying with excitement and awe (moments like meeting the Mermaid and becoming part of the Huddle)! I can't even imagine what they come up with next.

I guess I should train more.. I really suck. I manage to get killed but I get killed so far often. I suck to the extent that I have difficulty in BF4 spotting enemies. Mind you, when I played BF4 when I was like 16-17-18 I was on the top of the boards. But yeah back then most people still gamed on rubberdomes and the best we had was 25-30ms TFT-LCD or 16ms TN.

I tried doing the same, but I always find myself playing two at the same time. Right now it's Chrono Trigger DS and BotW. I play Chrono Trigger when the family's using the TV the Wii U's hooked up to (too lazy to move it to another), and so far it's a great pace.
But more than that and I'd probably stop playing them all.

Played about 30mins of A Night In The Woods, and for a game that is not made ironically it has to be one of the cringiest things I've ever beheld. This game should be offensive to everyone under 35.

Pure cancer, I got a refund and will never revisit this title.

Playing Pokťmon has taken over my life. I bought my daughter Moon and a New 3DS for Christmas thinking I might get it for myself if I could be bothered. I got bored with the games after I played White. I finally bought a used Copy of the game along with a used New 3DS and haven't looked back since. It makes a huge difference when you've got someone to talk Pokťmon with. Wish I'd had friends when I was playing the other games, or bought her a DS earlier. I've already put more hours into the game than she has, and have almost completed the Alola Dex.

Got Mario for the Switch last week and she loves that too. She cried after she realised she sucks at it and kept getting Blue shelled, red shelled, etc. I told her that's how Mario Kart works, and she came back and has got much better.

I gave up for the moment. I love FPS but my reflexes are failing me. I guess I need a proper board first. But then back in the day I just played cs1.6 with rubberdomes. I guess I just suck..
Sucks when that happens doesn't it? :D I've been dealing with something similar.
It's one of the reasons I've kind of put Overwatch on the shelf and started on Black Desert.

I do AimBooster now everyday. I can get up to 1m10s now.
A quick google search got me to a website.
I'm at work atm so I can't try it but will definitely give it a go when I come home. :D

Good points, solid reasoning, 10/10. But then... I use keyboard as mouse button. But then I have to "slow down" my mouse accelaration from my hand from left to right. This proves to be more difficult than anticipated. When I use mouse button to click, it feels somewhat easier to slow down just at the right moment.

Yea, maybe it's a seasonal thing in Rift? I'm still waiting for non-sequitur kings & queens, and people that poo-poo on the conversation but it hasn't happened in the few hours I've played.

I've been playing PUBG (PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds) since it came out.

Depending on your play style you can be as aggressive as you want or as tactical as you want. I find majority of the game is looting and trying to find appropriate gear to survive, and sometime can go by real slow. But the game can pick up from 0 to 100km/h (0 to 60mph) at any moment.

I have a squad of buddies who play with me and I've been totally addicted. It's generally more fun when you play with a squad than solo.

I have a pretty massive backlog of games I should've played already as well.
I've played a little HoTS though and it's quite enjoyable. I prefer playing with someone though as I've not had too good results with solo queue.

I have been super into Subnautica lately. I usually hate crafting games, but I love deep sea oriented stuff and there is a ton to explore and discover in this game. I like to disable the oxygen and just go deep diving for hours and hours.
(http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/subnautica/images/d/db/Reaper_Leviathan_%285%29.gif/revision/latest?cb=20150430213013)

They added a ton of new stuff recently, so it is a good time to get into the game. Especially since they are getting ready for the full-release this September.

I'm going to be pretty sad when I finish BotW. I've invested quite a bit of time in the game. These days I don't have much time to play anymore, but I've been making time to play this game. At first I was just going to do all the side quests sans the Korok seeds, but recently I've been on a Korok-seed binge so now I'm wondering if I should just get them all.

I'm also trying to collect the amiibos that get you exclusives in the game. They're not important, but nice eye candy; I really like playing the game in the Twilight Princess outfit.

Man the old CS was so good. I can't even count the number of hours I've spent on it.
I think we are well over 1000 hours by now.

I can't play it anymore though, at least no Global Offensive, it's changed too much for my taste I don't like it anymore. Might be time to try and dig out the old CS 1.6.

Loading up CS:S after investing any amount of time into CS:GO is so refreshing. Gun skins and bi-monthly steam sales on the game have made CS:GO a haven for toxic players. Some of them are even moving to ESEA now.  :(

Is anyone feeling burned out from BotW? I still haven't gotten my hands on a Switch, but at least 2 of my friends who are playing it are saying they've actually put it aside after putting in a TON of hours because all the side quests and whatnot have them burned out. I'm the type that tends to get super obsessed with a game if I like it (case in point: almost 30 hours of Person 5 after only owning the game for a week...and I have a full time job).

I think if you put too much time in one side quest it definitely can burn you out. There is a lot to do in the game, and for the past week I've been dedicated to hunting down Korok seeds. I'm getting a bit burned out, so I'm going to switch it up and go back to the main story for a bit.
The thing about getting Korok seeds, though, is that you have to climb a lot of mountains, glide across a lot of areas, and fight a lot of enemies on the way. Those add to a nice mix from just getting the seeds, and I find that it adds variety.

Also, it may not be for them. If you like to 100% games, and don't have a lot of time, you may get overwhelmed by the sheer size of BotW. Oddly, I don't have a lot of time, I like to 100% games, and I'm having a blast. Easily one of the top five games I've played.

I absolutely am a 100%-er as well. I think the open world-ness is a bit daunting (I've personally never really played many of them) but I'm still going to give it a shot since Zelda is my all-time favorite gaming franchise. I love side quests, though, so I'm hoping that'll help!

It's really still buggy as hell, but I'm somehow able to look past it. Even if it means having to hard reset my PC after every few games because it freezes everything.

Quake is fun but countering some of those abilities wrecks my idea of a good time. Having someone press F to run toward me to kill me in one hit is just silly.

I bought the Vita for remote play when I was addicted to Destiny but ended up loving P4G (one of my favorite single player games), finally finishing FF7 after a childhood friend lost disc 3 for PC back in the day, and checking out some visual novels.  It's a fun handheld, really like having a Vita and N3DSXL around for times when I'm bored with/want a break from "bigger" games.

You might wanna hold off on the last boss and do the DLC before that

Mostly that you will not be able to access the DLC after beating the boss without starting over in New Game+ since the DLC is accessed within the main game. After you beat the final boss, that's it - you start over.

Personally I would recommend doing Ashes right after getting the Lordvessel - then doing Ringed City right before finishing the game. RC is very difficult though, so be ready for that.

Finally beat BotW.

My God, that was beautiful. After the credits rolled and the post-credits cutscene+bonus scene played, I felt so emotionally drained (in a good way), that I shut off my Switch and was done for the night. Absolutely magical experience the whole way through.

Started P5 two nights ago and I am loving how it exudes sheer style. Really like the addition of negotiations and the characters are well-done so far (first Palace boss has me actually hating his guts). This is gonna be a timesink and I am ready.

I just picked it up the other day. Seems to be frame locked at 60fps even with vsync disabled. It stays pegged at 60fps for me at 1440p and everything maxed (no AA) on a 980 Ti.

Ha ha! I just started a few weeks ago, so I'm not very good. I've had it since release but never even opened it. I was getting bored on my commutes to/from work from just browsing my phone, so I figured I'd play this. Great for train rides!

Yeah I agree. I've been playing for hours and "completed" it but there's so much still to do. The new thing that maps your last 200 hours was a real eye opener as to how much I still haven't done.

I feel like it would take ages, but you wouldn't get bored.

A lot of games seem to forget that the actual amount of fun you have playing the game is more important than collecting 500 feathers. BOTW just happened to get the best if both.

I also dug out Midtown Madness off an old external hard drive and have been multiplayer-LAN-game testing it to see if I can make something work via Hamachi for some friends to get together for some old game time (the answer looks to be 'yes').

I've tested MM1 (not MM2 yet, that's the next project**) with a handful of machines (as indicated by how I got so many multiplayer cars in one screenshot all by myself lol). Results are as follows:

ThinkPad T21, Pentium 3 900MHz, 512MB RAM, S3 SavageIX video, WinXP
Native res - yes 1024x768
Glitches/artifacts - no
Plays smoothly - a little sluggish

Toughbook CF-51 and Dell Inspiron 630m (equipped identically), Pentium M 2.1GHz, 2GB RAM, Intel 915 video, Win7
Native res - no, max 640x480
Glitches/artifacts - no
Plays smoothly - yes

Toughbook CF-52, Core 2 Duo 1.8GHz, 4GB RAM, Intel 965 video, Win7
Native res - yes 1280x800
Glitches/artifacts - yes
Plays smoothly - yes

Acer Aspire 5000, Turion 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM, SiS M760GX video, WinXP
Native res - yes 1280x800
Glitches/artifacts - no
Plays smoothly - better than the T21 but sometimes laggy

ThinkPad W520, i7-2760QM, 16GB RAM, Intel HD3000/Nvidia Quadro 2000M, Win7
Using Intel GPU, glitches/artifacts severely
Using Nvidia GPU,
Native res - no, max 1280x1024
Glitches/artifacts - no
Plays smoothly - yes

W520 with Win10 behaves similarly except for massive framerate reductions. I had to install DirectPlay under legacy in Add/Remove Windows features...it will run but it tops out at like 3FPS. Not even exaggerating. It's really strange.

**edit
MM2 is not liking these drivers I guess:

I've been replaying Symphony Of The Night for PS1 again. Last time I played the game it was a digital release, and I have to say that playing directly off the disc the response times seem quicker. I think they slightly ****ed up the input response time in the digital translation to create a fraction of a second of lag during input.

At any rate, the game totally holds up. It's much shorter than I remember (especially since the second half of the game is just the first half upside-down) and only gets me wondering what more they could have done with a 2D Castlevania had it been on a DVD or BR disc. The 2D effects are top-****ing-notch and I would argue that SotN has perhaps the best sprite-work on the PS1. Fun little fact - I ran the disc on the PS3 and on a PS1 and playing on the PS1 actually made some of the effects look better(transparency effect, for example,) which really goes to show how specifically tailored to the system this game was.
There is a fair amount of backtracking, which is a valid criticism people have of this game, but where to go next is never convoluted and the music and enemy placement make backtracking withstandable, and even sometimes pleasurable.
There are two or three sections of the game which are designed in cheap ways so as to **** the player over forcing them to retrace a fair amount, and yeah they pissed me off, but they are few and far between and eventually you get powerful enough to bypass most of these situations.

All in all, Symphony Of The Night is a testament of what Konami used to represent and is a worthwhile investment of time. Now I just wish they would release a collection of all the GBA and DS Castlevania games.

Been playing Metro 2033 Redux....I like the game thus far but I think it's slightly over rated.

It's a bit more Linear than I had imagined and the lack of filters for people who love to explore is annoying.

The visuals are quite nice turned up though and the atmosphere is incredible.

I've been replaying Symphony Of The Night for PS1 again. Last time I played the game it was a digital release, and I have to say that playing directly off the disc the response times seem quicker. I think they slightly ****ed up the input response time in the digital translation to create a fraction of a second of lag during input.

At any rate, the game totally holds up. It's much shorter than I remember (especially since the second half of the game is just the first half upside-down) and only gets me wondering what more they could have done with a 2D Castlevania had it been on a DVD or BR disc. The 2D effects are top-****ing-notch and I would argue that SotN has perhaps the best sprite-work on the PS1. Fun little fact - I ran the disc on the PS3 and on a PS1 and playing on the PS1 actually made some of the effects look better(transparency effect, for example,) which really goes to show how specifically tailored to the system this game was.
There is a fair amount of backtracking, which is a valid criticism people have of this game, but where to go next is never convoluted and the music and enemy placement make backtracking withstandable, and even sometimes pleasurable.
There are two or three sections of the game which are designed in cheap ways so as to **** the player over forcing them to retrace a fair amount, and yeah they pissed me off, but they are few and far between and eventually you get powerful enough to bypass most of these situations.

All in all, Symphony Of The Night is a testament of what Konami used to represent and is a worthwhile investment of time. Now I just wish they would release a collection of all the GBA and DS Castlevania games.

This is the only Castlevania title I own physically, but man do I want to play. Been wanting to play it once I can haul my 32" Trinitron up the stairs, but don't think that's going to be likely.
Never played it, so I think I may just hook up my PS1 to my Samsung flat screen and suffer the lag.

I've tested MM1 (not MM2 yet, that's the next project**) with a handful of machines (as indicated by how I got so many multiplayer cars in one screenshot all by myself lol). Results are as follows:

ThinkPad T21, Pentium 3 900MHz, 512MB RAM, S3 SavageIX video, WinXP
Native res - yes 1024x768
Glitches/artifacts - no
Plays smoothly - a little sluggish

Toughbook CF-51 and Dell Inspiron 630m (equipped identically), Pentium M 2.1GHz, 2GB RAM, Intel 915 video, Win7
Native res - no, max 640x480
Glitches/artifacts - no
Plays smoothly - yes

Toughbook CF-52, Core 2 Duo 1.8GHz, 4GB RAM, Intel 965 video, Win7
Native res - yes 1280x800
Glitches/artifacts - yes
Plays smoothly - yes

Acer Aspire 5000, Turion 1.6GHz, 2GB RAM, SiS M760GX video, WinXP
Native res - yes 1280x800
Glitches/artifacts - no
Plays smoothly - better than the T21 but sometimes laggy

ThinkPad W520, i7-2760QM, 16GB RAM, Intel HD3000/Nvidia Quadro 2000M, Win7
Using Intel GPU, glitches/artifacts severely
Using Nvidia GPU,
Native res - no, max 1280x1024
Glitches/artifacts - no
Plays smoothly - yes

W520 with Win10 behaves similarly except for massive framerate reductions. I had to install DirectPlay under legacy in Add/Remove Windows features...it will run but it tops out at like 3FPS. Not even exaggerating. It's really strange.

**edit
MM2 is not liking these drivers I guess:

Woah, that's quite a classic fleet you have there. That test video brings back some good memories! "More tea, vicar?"

That whole gaming era of the mid-late '90s/very early 2000s, when 3D engines were coming into their own, might be my favorite time for gaming. Mostly because I had a LOT of fun with the new (at the time) online capabilities of playing with friends and not having to be in the same room. Games like Ultima Online, Starcraft, Midtown Madness, Unreal Tournament, Age of Empires, etc....

good times, good times.

Yeah, I've got too much old tech...this is an ongoing problem, and the post you quoted is nothing compared to some of the insanity.

W520 is my daily driver so-to-speak. Toughbook CF-52 is my auto repair software laptop. CF-51 was supposed to be flipped but the interested party backed down. Dell 630m I've had for ages, was bought in 2010 to be a family member's first computer but that got sidelined so it sat on a shelf for years. The Acer was picked up for ~$1 for the hard drive and RAM within, but it ended up being a working laptop so I may try to sell it.

The ThinkPad T21 was given to me by a friend, the backlight wouldn't turn on. Fixed it and now have a neat retro ThinkPad, and since it's a P3 it's somewhat usable which is a bonus.

Completely agree about the games of that time period. The burst of new technology that came out of that window in history is really significant. The prevalence of 3D acceleration being included out of the box for a new machine or video card was (this pun wasn't intentional) a game changer.

I posted some musings/ramblings specific to MM1/MM2 here (http://kishy.ca/?p=1334).

That being said, I dug out my steering wheel and have been spending some quality time with BeamNG.drive and it's incredible. To run smoothly I had to drop the quality settings but the experience isn't hurt any meaningful amount by having done that.

I'm playing the same thing. It's a fun game. I really like how you're not entirely pigeon holed into doing anything. I'm a bit, just a bit, Type-A when I play games like this though so I find myself mapping out growth times versus cost/profit and such to maximize gains. So, I've got a large strawberry farm right now since it's Year 3 Spring.

Haha, I do kinda the same, had to work out cost / revenue / growth time etc. There's a really good Wiki for the game and the subreddit is pretty good too, I try not to rely on it too much for quests and discovery, but for planning out long term investments and what to buy, sell and save for etc it's useful.

I do similar with games like Skyrim, where you have an axe worth 30 gold that weighs 22.. My friends would loot items like that and I'd go mad about the 'gold-weight ratio' - it's all about those 8-1 gauntlets!  :))

Nice blog. :thumb:
I share your love for the racing genre except I chose the console path (excluding MM1). I started out playing Enduro and Grand Prix for the Atari 2600 and truly fell in love with car games. From there I progressed through the console ranks year after year: Rad Racer, Off Road, Mario Kart, Sega Rally, Daytona 500, Ridge Racer, Wipe-Out, etc. until finally, this year, Car Mechanic Simulator for PC. Not really a racing game but satisfies the car itch.

To this day (and I'm not sure why), I've never owned a steering wheel setup. I did use a Microsoft Thrustmaster stick for MM1 which, I think, gave me an unfair advantage over my friends who were all using their non-analogue keyboards like suckers. The edge of my desk still bears the battle scars from the bottom of the stick base.

yeah, the developers plan on adding a lot more content, but even the way it is now, the price is justified imo... loads of content already, very snappy controls, perfect pixel-art and animations, cool soundtrack and seems pretty solid so far (only been playing for 4h, but I'd whole-heartedly recommend for any fans of this type of game)

Oh man that stuff can get pretty bad.
The first 5-7 years of that games life I was addicted. Sacrificed every social connection I had because I just couldn't get off the game.
It finally changed too much for my tastes so I doubt I'll be back now.
But it remains to this day the most addictive game I have ever played. Blizzard made something special there, and I don't regret the money I spent on it.
I made some friends that are still friends to this day and I made some enemies too. Great ****in' game.

Recently finished The Bard's Tale (action RPG from 2004, not the old dungeons or whatever). I have mixed feelings about it. It's a generic, relatively shallow action RPG with some slightly annoying bugs and a bit dated graphics (although it isn't too bothersome).

However, storytelling and voice acting are super fun. It jokes about genre tropes, the sarcastic narrator is awesome, there are some fine songs within the gameÖ

I wish it was more compact (complete playthrough takes 20-30 hours) and less linear (being nice/snarky in dialogues changes outcomes only slightly, e.g., the bard either does, or doesn't get some reward or a side quest takes a bit longer).

I actually just had a clan mate visit me. I kept in touch with our 10-man squad, not many of the 25-man. The game was incredible until I finally stepped back and realized how sucked in I was. I honestly will say no other game has captured my attention like that. FF3 (US) was close but not really I. The same way. EverQuest too, but still not the same way.

I'm playing Daikatana, because I was curious. Also wanted to play the multiplayer with some people off the Dusk Discord and that part was certainly enjoyable.

There's a new community patch that lets you turn off the squad mates and make it less frustrating.

It's still pretty damned frustrating, but sort of moreish at the same time. It's easy to kill yourself. You can't quick save (much). I'm almost finished the interminably long and irritating episode 1. I'm told episode 2 and 3 are pretty good.

This is true. You can still find people to play a lot of 90's games it just sometimes takes a bit more organisation, or you have to do it at 11pm on a Saturday when older people with families have time to play stuff.

decided to dust off my rift again this weekend and dove into a few hours of Elite: Dangerous, Dirt Rally, Assetto Corsa and Project Cars...


Coverup.. Rioc actually downloaded 2TB worth of virtual reality pr0n..

hahahahahahahahaha


I have this feeling that you're projecting your own personal happy time. Do you really need 2tb of reality porn data though tp4tissue? Couldn't you just buy a waifu pillow like a normal person?


But perhaps it is you who is projecting by saying other are projecting their own secret lives. ?

Downloaded RoM recently to check out if anyone still plays that 'ancient' game and to see if it runs with limited tweaking via Linux kernel. No problems running the game but whoa man it is empty. I should try PoE with Wine. Not having a console based music player for the Windows kinda sorta messes with my head a little bit. WoW seemed to mesh well with the Linux kernel too. Open source graphics drivers too. Dang. A few furry images and I'm good to go. Know what I mean? lookit

If you like WipeOut or F Zero, definitely check this out, it looks stunning, super fun to play and runs like a dream. 3440 x 1440, everything maxed, 100fps no sweat. It's more GPU intensive than CPU intensive which I generally prefer. Less than £10 on Bundlestars right now :D

Tried PUBG and really disliked the boring formula that basically forces you to hide in some hole and snipe like a little ***** instead of actually playing and having fun in the game. I don't really understand why this game is popular promoting boring cautious game play over fun action.

Also the developer seems like a little snowflake crybaby.

Replaying Fallout 2 over the weekend, not too far in yet. But damn did I have some rose-tinted glasses on regarding the super frustrating combat. HOW THE **** can I miss a giant ant with a spear 12 times in a row? How is that even possible?

But the Fallout 2 Restoration patch that adds dropped content and dialogue is excellent thus far. A seamless and welcome addition to the game for sure.

I do plan to reach the end of the game but when it first released I guess the shine of a new game distracted me from how dull everything is. Nemesis system is still kinda cool in like a yeah that was a great idea 3 years ago kinda way.

Personally I couldn't get into D1 as much as some did, though I appreciated its artistic design. D2 clicked right off the bat. Really enjoyed my time with it, and also so far with the expansion (though I think the base game has better gameplay thanks to the wider variety of powers and larger map sizes).

One nice feature of D2's New Game+ is it combines both Emily and Corvos powers, which is great for those who wanted to try other powers but liked playing the same character. Emily has some pretty unique powers, so for my runs I chose her.

Post by: Coreda on Wed, 04 October 2017, 11:21:58
Completed Dishonored: DotO non-lethally. On the whole wasn't as satisfying as the base game but not bad either. It's firmly in the 'expansion' category with what feel like progressively more linear map areasóespecially the re-used level from the base game (albeit heavily restyled and at a different time of day) which sections off most of the original level.

Power-wise wasn't that fond of the more difficult to aim Blink-esque Displace, which manages to be more finicky than Emily's Far Reach (which I quite liked). It serves a unique purpose however, since you can mark a spot for later teleportationóprovided you're in visual range.

I could imagine returning to replay the earlier missions in the Upper Cyria district since it feels like the largest map and offers more gameplay variety in one when combined with the optional bounty 'contracts'. Visually still pretty.

Yeah, Hellblade is a looker, especially the rendering of the protagonist from screens I've seen. Picked up Cuphead and it's kicking my ass :)) Taking it at a slower pace helps but after a dozen attempts you tend to try and speed through it which can lead to mistakes... Art design and animations are top notch though, which is mainly why I was interested in it. There really isn't anything like it.

One other thing is the default mappings for controllers are a bit finicky. You can't really dash easily while shooting with the defaults so I mapped shoot to the left trigger so I can keep it held down. I found this helped for the third transform of one of the bosses which turns into a slot machine as it requires both jumping quickly over/under moving obstacles while continually shooting. I'll see how I like it for other levels.

If you have a Switch and an extra $15 think about buying Golf Story. It's a short play (took me about 16 hours) and it's incredibly fun. I don't know how the thought of a golf-centered RPG came about but I am happy it did. Weird game, but incredibly charming and wonderfully stylized. The Switch is really establishing itself as a healthy platform for indie games and developers. If that's your thing I would highly suggest picking one up.

I am now playing Stardew Valley for the second time on the Switch after my initial playthrough on PC.

Decided to give the first Dishonored another try, and go for a fairly lethal run as opposed to taking the stealthiest approach. Thankfully found that adjusting the INI graphical settings helped somewhat with texture fidelity (mostly at mid-long distances), and forcing HBAO+ is possible, so it looks a bit nicer than I last played itóthough for some reason I can't get the anti-aliasing as smooth as some apparently have despite using the identical settings suggested.

(http://abload.de/img/3.1iysu7.jpg) (http://abload.de/img/29ys4r.jpg)

It's interesting comparing the two games. A few things I miss from DH2 are the non-lethal sword counters (countering sword attacks allows for both non-lethal and lethal counter-attacks), the non-lethal drop move above enemies, the ability to use powers/weapons directly from a sheathed stance (in DH1 when your weapons are sheathed it requires tapping the button once to show them then again to aim/use), and the dedicated unsheath button (in DH1 you need to use a power/weapon to show your hands again).

Hearts of Iron IV for now
A friend had kindly gifted it to me along with the entire DLC pack about a week ago, loving it so far but have only played for 7 hours or so.

I'm completely hooked on The Witcher 3. I don't have that much time to game, but what time I have, is going into this. Currently level 22 with 54 hours played. My wife loves watching me play. She's pro-Yennefer.

Currently playing The Witcher 3 as well. Amazing game, truly.
I don't think I've reached more than level 7 but I've only recently started it.
I'm with your wife on that one, Yennefer all the way. :p

It's just. So. complete... I'm currently playing on the highest difficulty level, which is doable as I'm several levels over my quests' level requirements. I love the challenge it's giving me now and it feels great to use the right oils, bombs, signs etc...

Zaku is pretty tight, I was getting worried after Abigail and Menat. IMO Menat is horribly designed and promotes poor play mechanics.

After 3hrs of building webkit I was finally able to download and play Runescape. Linux support from the website. Neat. That soundtrack, holy moly, and the storyline is better than most MMOs I've played in the past.  How big is the paywall is my main concern. If the non-oldschool Runescape does have a magically massive paywall level I suppose I could always fall back to PoE or KoL.

I haven't had a Nintendo console or handheld in a while but this is the game that might be my tipping point when a switch version comes out. Just started playing the phone version and it's nice so far. Doesn't seem to in your face about microtransactions.

Played through Anomaly: Warzone Earth last weekend (iirc). #PatientGaming

On one hand, it's yet another quite generic strategic game (except this one was supposedly the first prominent "tower offense")Ö

On the other hand, the atmosphere is very well done and especially music reminds me of Frank Klepacki (C&C).

Other than that, I can't think of anything notable. I've scratched some truly generic indie games from my backlog and that's about it.

I doubt anyone here has played Tera so perhaps I'm talking to the wind with this post. Made an account a few years ago, got bored after maxing the character lvl to 65. Apparently the lvl cap is still at 65. A few things have changed but my high elf gunner is still hot as hell. I might login again with a keyboard with F row and roll around a bit in a few dungeons. Curious if the stagnant lvl cap has anything to do with PUGB. *shrugs*

Holy moly that nose took a beating.

Had a 1155 socket cpu and DDR3 ram, so I picked up an i5 7600k, 16gb of Ripjaws (goddamn DDR4 is expensive) and putting it all on an EVGA Stinger z270 and in a CM Elite 130 (front is kinda ugly imo, especially coming from a Corsair, but seemed like the best functionality and size otherwise). Only things I'm bringing over is my gtx770 and PSU.

Super excited to do what's basically my first full new build since I built a few friends' a few years back.

Sorry to break up the party boys. But, I had to get this off my concious. It makes me feel soooo bad

Been playing some super difficult Kingdom Of Loathing recently after my brief Tera snafu.

Nearing the completion of my third acsension as sauceror on normal mode to get a feel for things. Reading the clan's chat is always good for a few laughs.

All the other games seem so dang easy peasy when compared to KOL or Tera tbh.

I think this is the way I'm suppose to post in the video games thread right?

Space all my sentences out like this? Frickin' in my thirties; yet, I was too old to hang when I wasn't in my thirties. Smurf this nobs. So it goes.

Finished Witcher 3 main story yesterday. I've loved the general challenge the highest difficulty level has given me, but for the final boss fights it was boring AF. The Eredin fight was 10 minutes of "dodge when he teleports, slash him after, run towards him in an arc when he's casting abilities". I wouldn't have minded a fight that changed at specific health stages (like different abilities or whatever). 

I got the "good" ending for Ciri.

Or beginning the expansions :)

The thing to be mindful for with mods is warnings in the mod description or from users about save file corruption. A number of mods (off my head for example the one that displays all PoIs on the map, and another that affected Triss) caused some players I know to get stuck and not be able to progress. Most aren't like that though.

Most aren't like that though.

I got the expansion pass at the last sale, looking forward to more content. I installed the "All quest markers on map" mod, but that's it. I'd like to play the game as much as intended.

I've tried some inventory mods, but none seemed to work properly for me. I'd like to filter the crafting menu a little better (e.g. only show gear that's within 3 levels of my current level), sort by level...

And if there's one thing I wish I could change (don't know if it's even possible with mods) is having access to your equipped inventory while shopping. When I'm upgrading gear, I find it super annoying that when buying/crafting a new piece of equipment, I first have to exit the vendor, swap gear, go back to the vendor, dismantle the old gear and then back to my inventory to put back the runes...

I also might consider this mod if I ever do another play through: https://www.nexusmods.com/witcher3/mods/2788/?

Destiny 2 is fun, but it gets old quick after you complete the weeklies and aren't playing with other people. They really need to add more chat options because locking it down to fire team and personal chat makes you feel like you're in a bubble.

I wanted to like that game more than I eventually did. I had a lot of hope and fun when it came out. Definitely got my moneys worth.. However, I just uninstalled it a couple days ago after having not played for some weeks. I put an embarrassing amount of time into the first one and I'm super bummed I feel this way about the second, I didn't even bother to buy the dlc. I'm hoping this game turns around cause it was a blast. I am glad someone is enjoying it though.

I blame FFXI (Final Fantasy 11) for ruining a lot of single player games for me and steering me towards looking for similar experiences, haha. The grind to level and then farm gear at end-game was almost masochistic, even with a good group and preparation (pre-ToAU nerf fest) it forced you to become more knowledgeable about your class, group, and enemies. It's definitely a case of rose-colored glasses, because what really made it so memorable was struggling to accomplish goals with other people and facilitating bonds by working through those hardships; that's just not something you really find anymore with how many new games aim to make things ridiculously rewarding and/or overly scripted to the point that accomplishing anything doesn't feel like an accomplishment, but more of an entitlement.

There's a lot of problems with Destiny2 that stem from Bungie's/Activision's decisions; the gameplay is fun, but it's not really enough to keep it going. So I understand how anyone can get tired of it after playing through the story and touching base with what's left to do.

There aren't any plans for a Dark Souls Online (may be with the masochism scaled down? Haha!), is there?

My wife is making me play VR The Diner Duo with her. It's a silly VR game where one person sits at the PC and takes orders in a hamburger restaurant and the other person wears the Vive and makes the orders... We both suck at remembering the orders so whoever is "cooking" always ends up frustrated that orders are getting jumbled...

I loved ffxi! That was my first "true" mmorpg experience. That was the first and last time that I felt like I was a part of that fantasy world as well as at mercy to it, emphasis on the latter. I really, really enjoyed how you needed a group to do almost anything beyond level 10 at certain points. It really made you feel like your character had grown and became more powerful when you could go back to an area without needing a group. Ever since then most mmos have felt very much like a theme park (as they're design to.) and became extremely linear and routine.

Resident Evil 7: Not A Hero

and Bioshock Remastered.

Both are for PC, and both are just too fun to stop playing. Oh, and both run very well on my FX 8300/R9 470 rig, which is good because I won't have the money to upgrade my PC (thanks to how Windows activation works now, it's a better option to get a new motherboard, RAM and processor than build one from scratch) until at least March or April.

Main game Resident Evil 7 has a few spots where my system chokes on max, but considering Medium textures aren't really any worse than the game's maximum textures, it's not a big deal. That flipping yard though...

StickyBlueJuice watched an intruding male from the living room door. He deeply disapproved of this inferior specimen. However, this is america, and he must accept that there are individual freedoms which old-world patriarchy can not impede.

Little while later, the male-intruder disappeared leaving only an uninteresting goodbye text.

StickyBlueJuice feigns sympathetic grief, and inserts himself as a comforting presence among the sister and family.

Years after, he discusses the subject on any occasion in order to absolve himself as a suspect in the mysterious disappearance.

I got started with 'PC gaming' with either POP or Keen. Wolfenstein 3D is more fun when you don't have to write a shell script/desktop file so that you can run it with one mouse click via DOSBox. DOSBox is a pain. FreeDOS loads in about 5sec (uses ~1MB ram!)... !!/*//#([cd  Games wolf3d.exe]).. shoot bad guys. Looking forward to more low-fi builds/components. :))

This game, They Are Billions, intrigues me. Steampunk Starcraft, anyone?...what else could one ask for? I'm hesitant to get into another RTS due to having to learn and memorize new controls. Even the wizard character from the newest Gauntlet discouraged me. I'll probably just stick to the classics like Starcraft and Age of Empires, cuz I'm old and junk.  :p I do enjoy making maps for these games, though.

But ur right overall, it's pointless now with steam.

DOS2 looks very very good, waiting for a Steam sale to nab it

Imo the older Need for Speed games are much better. The stuff they've been putting out lately has been pretty crap.

Started playing God Eater series waiting for Monster Hunter on PC. It's not bad; voice acting isn't great, but the sory's interesting/game play is fun enough, but not too deep. Overall not a bad purchase considering I got both Resurrection free with Rage Burst 2.

Finally got around to picking up Witcher 3. Very hesitant due to how much I disliked Witcher 2, but it seems the formula's been reworked and everyone seems to love it.

Anyone got any mod suggestions before I get started?
Some must have mods I would say are Absolute Camera(freedom to set the way you want how the camera behaves during battle and out of battle), Skip Movies(skips the usual annoying movies at the game's startup),  Friendly HUD(can help clean up the HUD if preferable to just take in this beautiful game), Better Torches(makes traversing the nights easier), All Quest Objectives On Map(makes it easier to plan out your routes in finishing quests) and finally the HD Reworked Project(improves models and textures, may have a very slight performance hit).

Some other stuff that aren't necessarily needed but optional are Auto Apply Oils(applying oils can be pretty tedious throughout the game), BLOOD(more blood), Ultra Gore 2(more dismemberment if that is to your liking), High Quality Faces(improved look for faces), Nitpicker's Patch(some improvements on stuff like swords and clothes clipping on each other and the surroundings).

One last thing that I could think of is the No Fall Damage mod, cause one thing about this game is that Geralt's knees are made out of glass and he dies from falls in really low heights. I must've died more to falls than through combat even though I played on the hardest difficulty(though to be honest the game gets a bit easy after a good amount of level ups). This mod might not be needed for some so I would really only get it if you finally get annoyed by it.
 
All of them should be on Nexusmods, though I haven't actually played the game in a year so I'm not quite sure if there are some new cool stuff out or things got removed. What's great about most of these mods though is that they are accessible in game, in the settings. So you can turn them on or off without having to quit the game and restarting.

Hope you enjoy the game! I know I did even when I was skeptical starting it since I also didn't very much like the first two games. Just wish the combat was more varied and the game harder.

What's changed recently? I always end up going back and playing this once in a while, but quit again after a week of endless grinding.

I guess that's kind of the point of the game though lol.

I played like 4 or 5 months ago, and they did add some new things. Despite that the game really has no endgame whatsoever. You're basically just grinding greater rifts and regular rifts for gear and experience. Perfecting your gear by grinding so you can grind even faster is pretty much the endgame.

I bought a Oculus Rift recently so I've been playing that with a friend. We just switch every once in a while since I don't really like playing longer than 15-20 minutes or so at a time.

Yea I couldn't justify the price back then, but they lowered the price to $400 with the touch controllers.

The fully fledged VR experience is VERY different to the one you get with just a phone. If you get a change to try the Oculus or PSVR I would recommend it. I used the Oculus on a flight simulator and threw up fairly soon after. Going off the moves I was pulling in the planes, it was fairly realistic...

Yea the Samsung and cheaper VR headsets are not true VR, like Blaise and katushkin said. They sell a bunch of headsets labeled as VR at Target too, which is kinda infuriating as they are not true VR headsets either. It's gonna ruin the experience for people and they're never gonna touch VR again.

If you can, definitely try out a real VR headset like Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive. The Vive is better if you have a very large play area, since you can actually move around and the game will register it. The Rift is better if you have a small play area, like an apartment.

fortnite (https://www.lyncconf.com/games-like-fortnite/)

Pretty trendy game for now.

So there's a game called Valley, (note: NOT stardew valley. Just Valley. It's a completely different game.) released within the last year. It's almost a 3D platformer--you run fast, jump fast, and explore this lovely Valley, and the obligatory sinister research group that inhabits it.

It's the perfect weekend game for a stressful week. It's so satisfying to get the jumps and runs timed right, and just float across the landscape. And the landscape is chill and lovely (except for the parts that are scary and lovely). I think the devs have/had VR hopes for the game; I'd certainly love to play it with a headset.

CDs are better than cartridges in my opinion, because reliability wise a CD doesn't degrade much over the years. Cartridges oxidize much more rapidly when left to their own devices.

Nope.
Cartridges can be restored and cleaned much more easily than CDs. CDs rot, and forget trying to get them to play when there are scratches and scuffs.
With a little rubbing alcohol, you can open up cartridges and clean them really well and they'll play perfectly.
Title: Re: What video games are you currently playing?
Post by: Blaise170 on Fri, 25 May 2018, 10:18:02
Depends on definition of reliability I guess. Of course if you leave a CD on the floor, it may get scratched or even shatter, but left in a case, they have a life expectancy well longer than most anyone alive today. Some scratches can be cleaned too, if you have the right product. Of course you can be more rough with a cartridge and it will keep working but that's not really what I meant by reliability.

Do N64 carts have batteries for saves? I can't remember.

I know NES and GB/C/A cartridges do. Those can be replaced, and there are even things you can solder onto the PCB so that, in the future, to replace the battery all you have to do is swap them out instead of having to desolder and solder every time.

For cleaning, I open them up and use rubbing alcohol on the inside of the shell and contacts. Here's the guide I follow: http://retrorgb.com/cleangames.html.

Yeah, I just need to learn to solder. :D

The Brasso should be done only in extreme cases. I had to use it once on a Kirby cartridge. Would not play before; after the Brasso it worked, but the colors were wrong. Don't know what the heck the previous owner did to it.

As for preserving saves, you can invest in cart dumpers. I got a GB/C one off Tindie for about $20.

Some ~20yrs later I now know that I can clean the oxidization off cartridge contacts, but I can't clean the oxidization from the metal in a CD.

I should check out Ocarina Of Time or perhaps some of the older Zelda games tho. I feel like mario 64 was just the beginning. Maybe grab a console instead of slumming it with the NDS.

check the internals, make sure nothing corroded i think the batteries might be able to do that given enough time.

Do N64 carts have batteries for saves? I can't remember.

I know NES and GB/C/A cartridges do. Those can be replaced, and there are even things you can solder onto the PCB so that, in the future, to replace the battery all you have to do is swap them out instead of having to desolder and solder every time.

For cleaning, I open them up and use rubbing alcohol on the inside of the shell and contacts. Here's the guide I follow: http://retrorgb.com/cleangames.html.

Looks like battery replacement is pretty easy either way. I'll have to remember that Brasso trick.

http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Change-Game-Boy-Cartridge-Battery/ (I guess without losing save files as well)
Yeah, I just need to learn to solder. :D

The Brasso should be done only in extreme cases. I had to use it once on a Kirby cartridge. Would not play before; after the Brasso it worked, but the colors were wrong. Don't know what the heck the previous owner did to it.

As for preserving saves, you can invest in cart dumpers. I got a GB/C one off Tindie for about $20.

I'd love to preserve that old Dragon Warrior 1 cart I use to own; 120+ hrs lost forever. Dumping the cart and soldering on a fresh battery sounds like the better plan.

To be fair,  even $42 (atm) seems reasonable for what it does.

True that, homeslice. I was looking at other pre-made ones and they go for about double. Maybe the maker realized that and bumped the price.  :p

It's very useful if you want to preserve games from your childhood, and if you have saves off the 'net you can load them into the games too.

It's been an absolute cakewalk so far challenge wise however. I've won every race fairly comfortably. It's certainly no Flatout 2 in that regard.

I've slowly been getting back into Destiny 2 following the mass exodus that Curse of Osiris created. Warmind is a baby step in the right direction, but it'll be a long time before Bungie can even come close to regaining the trust of its playerbase considering how much better the first game was. For now I'll be playing a bit more casually, maybe raiding once or twice a week with some PVP sprinkled in, but that's about it. I'll be keeping a close eye on any Forsaken-related news because I sure as hell won't be getting it when it comes out, let alone pre-ordering it (learned my lesson the hard way from the season pass).

This seems like a good place to ask:

Iíve been getting more and more involved with the wonderful world of Witcher 3. Iím lucky enough to have a machine that can let the game be run on almost everything on max (excluding pointless post-processing gimmicks and a few others) with outputs averaging 120fps. A few nights ago, however, that average was 400fps. This insane boost had no known trigger from my end, no OC or boosts enabled that werenít already enabled. I just booted the game and I was running everything at the same rez and values as usual but at a RIDICULOUS 300-400fps. Lasted two 1 hour sessions, then I was back to the 120 average.

Any idea what happened?

Resident Evil Revelations 2, Raid Mode. Recently acquired Albert Wesker as a skin, so I've been maining him. Also in the process of slowly raising up HUNK to level 100.

I've also very happy now that I can play all the Raid Mode missions without any stuttering/frame rate drops. My graphics driver must have gotten corrupted at some point, but a clean install of the most recent driver did the trick.

I haven't heard user reports even on a 1080ti of 300-400fps. No idea, other than perhaps it was being misreported. Do you have any framerate limiting options enabled either in-game or externally like V-Sync or RivaTuner's framerate capper? As if so you should only be ever getting the max framerate your monitor can support.

If it has some sort of dynamic resolution maybe..

Also possible if some part of the rendering shadow/lighting was stuck in the pipeline and didn't render.

But, most likely the report program is glitching.

Same as the xbox/ps4 version, just alittle behind in the updates. Looks fun as hell. I'm looking forward to it as well. As far as I know it's not really an MMO more just an online coop; similar to borderlands (1-4) without a humongous world, but large fighting areas. I'm not sure if they are still instanced like in other games or connected, but the game looks fantastic. Legitimately one of the most hyped games for me in awhile.

Yakuza 4 and Mortal Kombat 9 on PS3. I overlooked MK9 when it was out because I don't generally like MK pacing, but it's a surprisingly deep fighting game and paced closer to something like a Tekken. Good game.
Yakuza has lots and lots of cutscenes, I wish there was more game and less cutscenes. One of my game design pet peeves is taking agency away from the player, I think it's important with a hot medium like video games to fully explore the aspect of player control and avoid anything like a cutscene or dialogue boxes, and instead tell the story as it happens because we don't pause the world around us in real life.

Been playing Warframe for the past couple months. If you like Destiny 2 then you'll prolly like it.

It's free to play, but I like how everything in the game can be attained without spending a dime. There are cosmetics that are locked behind the premium currency (platinum), but you can sell in game items to other players for platinum to buy them. I spent ~$60 so far, but don't think I'll ever need to buy more when I can just sell items. I figure that's about the price of a premium game anyway, so I'll get a bit of a head start as well.

It's honestly a great system, and I hope more free to play games follow this model in the future. There is a lot of grinding, but that's kind of expected from a game like this.

I think the worst thing about Warframe is the initial start-up, to be honest. Without someone to mentor you, it's pretty tough to get into. Too many mechanics to learn, everybody too far ahead of you, not being able to get decent weapons as they're all MR locked. You have to spend about 50 hours in-game until you're at the point where you can keep up with other players.

Once you're at that point though; I agree, it's a fantastic game.
1200 hours wasted and counting.

(Also Fortuna hype).

Yea I admit I almost quit in the beginning because of the sheer amount of content to wade through. That and the fact that I had absolutely no idea what was going on. Outdated guides, no in-game tutorials, and having to look at the wiki every 5 minutes was pretty infuriating. Glad I stuck around though.

700 hours and counting, can't wait for the new content!

Play Arena of Valor,  the programming behind it is an art-form..

It is incredibly battery efficient, despite great graphics..

The control latency, engine syncing, social engineering, all extremely elevated..


I agree that there is alot of good OLD stuff.

Warcraft 3 Dota epitomized Gaming. Moba gamestyle that kids take for grant these days, IS in fact the ultimate interactive entertainment, perfectly tuned for human engagement.

It has the perfect blend of action and strategy..

AOV, is the most Polished Moba ever, finally removing the tediously bulky elements.


AOV is like 100% pure cocaine, vs LeagueOL which is at best 25% .

I'm just not the type for MOBAs. When I'm in the mode for newer games I prefer action based combat MMOPRGs/rpgs (probably said this before.. like Tera--even tho the NEET factor is off the chart).

I'm cool with researching dungeons, planning out what weapon/gear drops to look for, enemy weaknesses, damage cycles, etc.

Wish I had more time for them to be honest. When I find a new one the first thing I do is turn off (mouse) click to move..  :-[

Many people have trouble getting into MOBA, because Dota2, LeagueOL, Dota OG, are all very long and has tedious item tree.

Arena of Valor and Mobile legends are very different, they're simplified and work much better as moba entries..

They're also much shorter games 10-15 minutes vs 45minutes to 1hr on D2, LOL, D1

Since recently completing Portal 2 I've been jonzin' for more content set in the Half-Life world. I happened upon Portal Stories: MEL, a fan company-made Portal prequel by Prism Studios. So far, so good :thumb: The detail, atmosphere, and voice acting are all top notch. Whomever they hired as a J K Simmons sound-alike to continue the role of Cave Johnson is spot on!

Dota 2 has since received a "Turbo" mode; which generally cuts the games down to 25-35min, doubles gold and generally is wayyy more forgiving than normal. It's not bad; It was a little off putting at first; but definitely pretty nice compared to the 45-1hr games if you don't have much time to spare.

Uncharted 4.
So far it's fantastic.
Graphics are really more than I expected from a Playstation, although the framerate isn't too great in places.
The game itself is totally awesome though. Perfect mix of humor action and puzzles.

You speak the truth hahaha; Turns it back into regular Dota with bonus gold -_-. Seems like alot of team comps that I played against were built around ratting comps too. Not exactly the most fun way to play imo, but it wins I guess

I've since quit MOBAs in general; MOBA costume collection ran parallel to my collection of keycaps; and I could only afford (Both attention and money) to have one haha. I play from time to time as those are the only games some old friends play; but it's more to bs and talk crap.

You can't get in easily because they are less likely to install unknown software to their person PCs.

Been addicted to this Hogwarts Mystery game on mobile. Given how thin on actual play mechanics it is, tant amount to tapping and waiting with some spell casting and dueling inbetween, the story and atmosphere really serve to scratch that Harry Potter itch. You go through all 7 years at Hogwarts as the plot unfolds, and I've been playing for about two weeks and just got to the third year, so I do wonder what will happen at the end to keep players wanting to come back. At least until the new Fantastic Beasts movie comes out.

I'm addicted to Resident Evil Revelations' Raid Mode. I don't know why. Revelations 2's Raid Mode is far more fleshed out. But there's something about the original that keeps drawing me back. I'm at level 42 now, out of fifty. I tend to main Parker's second costume, for the Shotgun and Handgun boosts. I've even spent money on DLC at this point (not a whole lot, just a few weapon packs, for the parts--5 or 6 dollars total), and have one Level 50 weapon already (and a level 48 Steady Hand 4 slot G36--great gun right there). I can't even use it for 8 more levels.

Bought the new black ops (I know.) on a whim to have something to play with some old friends; blackout mode (battle royale) is actually pretty fun; doesn't have the building or the surivival aspect which i found diluted other games, or made them significantly less appealing. Though it does suffer from the "why bother?" mechanic for me, which just leaves whether I having fun or not by itself, meaning I can't pick it up or drop it as I please. Has been pretty fun so far.

idk I feel like the games chosen for the Playstation Classic are all C and D tier PS1 games. The only two main attractions on there are MGS and FF7, maybe Sony blew the entire licencing budget on those two. This list of games ****ing sucks compared to what the PS1  library has to offer, sorry Sony. Most people will only get this for MGS and FF7, both you could get legit versions for much less than $100

I only have a regular PS4, not a Pro mind you.
But sometimes when I hit town the FPS just DROPS, especially at night with the lights. I'd still say it's playable, but it's because I'm used to 120hz when I game on the PC I think.
Also my PS4 really makes an awful amount of noise sometimes. Should probably replace the thermal paste on there.

I bought Yakuza 0 in the Steam sale. Only put maybe 3 hours into it so far. Haven't played this series before and I must say the writing is excellent. I generally skip all the cutscenes in videogames (with good reason, they're ****) but haven't felt tempted in this so far, which is amazing cos they're long and there are lots of them.

There are a few things on my wishlist on sale at the moment in fact. Thumper, Hyper Sentinal and Carmageddon Max Damage all look tempting.

What I'm about to say might sound a bit bizarre outside of the confines of this thread.
Unreal Tournament is my comfort game.
I've been playing it since 2000 and it's the game that I most consistently visit (next to Ultima Online, but that's a whole other story). I wish I had a count of hours I've put into both of those :-\ Since the early days I've skin modded some of the bots, named them, and have given them specific play styles. I enjoy their sportsmanship and it's reassuring to know that they'll be there, waiting for me to join them in battle, chomping at their virtual bits for me to double-click the launcher that's omnipresent in the taskbar of every Win machine that I've ever owned.

Yes! Or any time you need to expel pent-up anxiety. Coffee before an interview works too but not too much. There's about a quarter cup difference between being confidently alert and getting the sweats and tremors. The latter is no good for interviews  :eek:

I've restarted Neverwinter Nights recently, since GOG released the EE version (Enhanced Edition, or something).

I usually play as a human fighter (most options to hit things with sharp bits of metal), but this time I'm playing as a dwarf fighter.

I don't know if there's any different options for a dwarf, but it's been sufficiently long since I played it that I can't remember all of the quests.

Recently got my loot**** fix; started playing Destiny Forsaken alittle, quite an improvement over year one. Too early for me to say whether it's worth the money or not, although I did get it on "sale". Most aggravating thing about this series is year 1 is always ass, and it takes them about year to fix everything or get started on the right path. Each entry has so far started over to appeal to a wider audience to its detriment.

Same! I feel like I'll never play through The Witcher 3 properly... there's just so much in that game. I downloaded Destiny 2 (PC) yesterday since it's free right now. Haven't played it yet, but I've heard mixed reviews. I'll be playing that sometime today :)

I've played through it before - but this time I'm playing as a dwarf fighter.  Not much different, some weapons I can't use.  I also have a dwarf companion whose unlock skills consist of bashing the chest until it breaks open.  Gets the job done though.

To me the second one has the worst voice acting in any game.  I gave up eventually as the voices were really distracting me from the ambience of the game.

For the most part, the destiny series has been a reminder of the greed of many triple AAA studios, and serves as a shell for the fantastic game it could have been. Sure, some say it's pretty good; however I think in most cases it's really just the best option they have available to get their "itch". Has some of the best shooting mechanics imo, however its story has been dismal, and up until recently the loot aspect has been fairly lackluster. In Destiny 1, 3rd year was considered the best year in terms of advancements/loot. However, since the series was brand new to me, I enjoyed all of it up until finishing the Taken King expansion. After that I couldn't be bothered to run the treadmill anymore as the dangling carrots weren't appetizing.

I've seen a lot of capped level 20 toons on recently like you said since it's free, alot of people are giving it a shot. I'm sure you'll get your monies worth at that price :)

Played this old Capcom arcade game called Black Tiger and I'm amazed more people don't know about this completely incompetent unfair horribly designed pile of festering hot garbage. It's a truly special game. When you begin it seems like an average old school platformer, but the more you play the more you realize almost every single thing about the game is total bull****. I hated it so much, but weirdly wanted to keep playing to see what other random unfair garbage they would throw at me. Eventually had to quit after playing 60 lives on one of the bosses, but holy **** what a gem.

Destiny 2 is still pretty fun a week or more in; weapons feel a lot better this time around. Still skeptical as time goes on and most likely won't buy day 1 dlc. PVP is pretty fun again, them having made significant changes to it. Story is still okay, not game changing.

BO4 blackout still is as exciting as the first day I played it. I haven't become jaded when winning or super salty when losing, still a rush to make it as far as you can and/or optimize your play.

I was hoping for a pc release but I got it for Xbox1. I loathe using a modern controller. I think there's something wrong with my thumb, too, 'cause it takes me forever to fine-tune a target in FPSs. If a controller has more than, say, 6 buttons I have to think before doing stuff and that can take me out of the game.

I've been having a lot of fun playing the first RDR game for the first time ever(since I aint got no PS4)

Out of everything, the writing and character dialogue were very well-handled and impressive. Many times during the game I would think something out loud and John would immediately voice the same opinion I just had, which is very interesting psychologically. I think this idea could be further harnessed by adjusting the prescripted dialogue based upon player action, perhaps it actually is idk. Miles ahead of almost anything GTA. Unfortunately as with any Rockstar sandbox game the mission design is extremely restrictive and repetitive sometimes, although it was a last-gen title so there were some understandable technical limitations. But I'm trying to play this more for the atmosphere and story, as opposed to running around causing random destruction, so I am a little more OK with the hand holding with this title.

Maybe you're right. I've been playing Halo games with xbox controllers since the beginning of Halo and I was actually pretty good at it (especially against my friends). Then I went through a time when I played a lot more PC games than console ones and I fell out of touch, so to speak. Once my 7-year-old nephew began pwning me in multiplayer, I knew there was problem. :confused:

Hmmm...that's an interesting bit about the game seemingly reading your thoughts. If games were indeed scripted based on player input then every characters I've ever played in a RPG would be saying "Now, where did I leave my car keys?" because I wander around a lot admiring graphics details.

Been playing some Grim Dawn, nice Diablo 2 feel, but it still has a strange vibe that I can't quite place. I prefer this style much more than the D3 mostly action, less rpg style. The game is forgiving of quite a bit of experimentation with your character builds; however there is a limit to that. I'm not very far, but I hope the weapons and armor start to look more cool the further I progress. It's pretty rough atm

Mortal Kombat Project Revitalized 2 which is pretty amazing. These guys put a ton of work into making the ultimate MK fan game with 54 characters and something like 150 stages from every MK game up to MK9.

This looks awesome!

Two questions: Do I need to download MUGEN ahead of time? Or can I just download the game and play?
There are a few MUGEN-based fighting games I've been wanting to play but I always assumed I needed to download and configure MUGEN ahead of time--kind of like downloading an emulator, configuring all the settings, and then playing the ROM.

I'm like 98% sure it's standalone. I have MUGEN installed, but this doesn't seem to access that folder at all. It's honestly become one of my favorite MK games of all-time, probably right after 9 and X (as long as you ignore the bottom two rows of mostly OP characters)

The only issue I have encountered is it not working properly w/ some bluetooth controllers, but wired it's FLAWLESS. I wish there was an online feature, but that's asking too much for now.

If you ever considered yourself even a mild MK fan, this is basically a love letter. It's the SSB of MK if you will.

Neverwinter Nights - Shadows of Undrentide.

It doesn't feel as polished as the main NWN campaign, quests seem fairly boring, difficulty level ranges from too easy to massively too difficult to impossible (if you didn't buy a particular weapon on the last map).  There are spelling errors in the messages and item names.  Some of the commentary is too modern for my liking.  And Deekin seems to have been thrown in for comedy relief as much as anything.  Still reasonably enjoyable though.

Debated picking up League, but after around 10 hours of videos on just basics, I think I might wait until I either find some friends that play or get a cute nerd girlfriend that plays... Use to be a hardcore min-maxer/theorycrafter and I know how deep this rabbit hole could go, hahaha!

I did end up getting God Eater 3 for sale on PC. The graphics aren't amazing and mouse control is a bit odd (software mouse with a bit of lag atm), but the combat feels pretty sweet; it's noticeably faster paced than GER and GE2RB and just feels more polished. I'm not too far in yet, so I can't say much about story, but it does seem to be mostly detached from previous games for the most part.

In all seriousness though a lot of the Netflix shows have a somewhat similar ďclinicalĒ look, probably because they followed the same production guideline (which doesnít look bad at all, they have really really high requirements). Thanks to Netflix we have some of the most eye pleasing shots of food porn (Chefís Table) and the most expensive looking TV ever (The Crown).

Digi film grain also looks great in Stranger Things.

Digi-film grain looks fine when done right.  But sometimes, if they make the grain size too large, because it's not a truly random distribution, what ends up happening is the chroma / scaling algorithm of various systems turn the grain into checker boxes.

Considering getting into Obduction, the spiritual sequel to Myst and Riven. It's been out a while but I only even learned it existed the other day. Was a huge fan of both games when I was younger. Also really enjoyed games like The Witness. But Obduction for some reason I am a little hesitant because apparently the devs made it way too easy and basically point out the clues to you rather than have you figure it out yourself, and to me that's sort of a dealbreaker.

I am not Mad Max fan but i spend countless hours in Crossout.

If some one is interested to try it out, here is my advice: don't waste your time (or money) to get legendary weapons or to reach high end power score. You will get the most fun in the range between 5k and 6k power score and with blue weapons.

How replayable is Limbo?  For me the best part is working out the solutions to the puzzles.  Once you've done that, it would pretty much be just eye candy on a re-run.

Limbo wore thin for me. It got a bit repetitive the first go around, and it severely lacks replayability unless you are one to go for clear times, because every puzzle pretty much just has the one solution,

I'd recommend a game called Inside. It improves on every single facet of Limbo while remaining faithful to that feel, play style, and aesthetic. Although again there is not much in the way of replay due to the nature of the game, but there is much more of it and it is done better than Limbo is. So if you're looking for an indie faceless shadow child dying brutally game, try Inside instead.

So if you're looking for an indie faceless shadow child dying brutally game, try Inside instead.

I don't remember the "faceless shadow child dying brutally" genre of games cropping up in any game awards :))

Inside noted for future reference, thanks :)

Got to finish Limbo first, which means finding the time ...

Started Limbo.

Nice graphics.

A few amusing surprises.

Quite a few "aha!" moments.

Limbo is freaking great, I loved it:)
I finsihed it two times.
Graphics are amazing, giving the whole spirit and aura of that place.

Little Nightmares were similar, also I suggest you to try it, really good one, similar to Limbo. Play of colors and light, really cool.


Now, I played Soma for about 2 minutes and cannot do it anymore. It is SO scary... Last time I almost s*** my pants during game was like 13 years ago plyaing Fear.
Soma is a kind of game that you don't want to play alone. You need to have somebody sitting next to you:D

How replayable is Limbo?  For me the best part is working out the solutions to the puzzles.  Once you've done that, it would pretty much be just eye candy on a re-run.

Little Nightmares noted for future reference, thanks :)

Limbo wore thin for me. It got a bit repetitive the first go around, and it severely lacks replayability unless you are one to go for clear times, because every puzzle pretty much just has the one solution,

I think I finished Limbo during a physics class, amazing game but surprisingly too short.

I forget how many hours Iím in, spent a good chunk of time farming yesterday. Iíve explored the best I can and left many of the hard parts to come back to, Iíve even made a list and going through it slowly. So far Iíve done two strength upgrades and four vit/post upgrades, as well as 8 gourd seeds found.

She was definitely the hardest fight for me still.

The game in general has been a steep difficulty for me, even though I love the souls games. Regardless of the game I never use parry or block, so focusing on deflecting has been interesting haha

Yeah, I played a little Sekiro today and I don't like it. Too finicky and specific with it's mechanics, and the older I get the less patience I have for doing the same thing over and over and over again because I didn't do something within a fraction of a second. I don't have the patience or want to improve for this kind of game, it's just not fun to me. The parry mechanic has always been my absolute least favorite part of Souls games, and this entire game is built around just that. Done with it.

It's always surprising to see how different people's experiences are with From's games. For me she was easily the most relaxed fight, granted I died on 1st attempt but I took her down with ease the second time. The 1st miniboss (General something) gave me so much more trouble and later on the dude on the watchtower nearly broke me mentally.

Yup, itís always neat to see which characters we have a harder or easier time with. Canít believe you did her so easy though haha

I killed a couple mini bosses first try today and then one took me a good hour or so. Guess itís good I donít have any real subscribers on twitch yet haha

I guess it's because her perilous attacks were pretty easy to tell and not very fast or I was just lucky haha.

One mini boss with a long spear (Seven Ashina Spears) is kicking my butt so hard that I honestly don't want to bother with him for now... the minibosses in this game are super tough.

And you can't say that without linking your twitch : P.

Mikiri Counter is the key imo, if you're not using it already. Just a half-second after seeing the Perilous symbol for the lunge (and when locked onto his position) press forward + dodge and Sekiro will slam his spear onto the ground dealing a chunk of posture damage. Apart from that deflecting the attacks and getting in some hits here and there without leaving too much room for him to regain posture and it's over fairly quickly. Took a while to get it all right though, *wew*.

Yeah I got familiar with Mikiri counter fighting the boss on the watchtower so no problem countering his thrust attack. It's just that his other attacks break my posture in 1 shot unless I managed to deflect it!!

Was playing Anthem, thankfully I only subscribed to Origins for a month; got my fix before the dumpster fire was a full on blaze. Not that it was any sort of good (Quality) when it initially was released; I still had some fun while it was fresh.

Currently playing Risk of Rain 2, I don't normally like Roguelikes; however this one has maintained my attention. Overall, fun gameplay; imo plays similar to Wildstar's combat. It's a pre realease version, so some things are not developed yet; but when it releases I think it'll be substantially better, not to say it's bad now. Still really good.. Hoping for more stages more enemy variety, as usual.

Just finished Katana Zero. It's a very good game with a great story, only downfall is how short it is. I'd still say it is worth the dosh to pick up. It's kinda like a Ninja Gaiden x Hotline Miami.
and it is really not that hard, all the people complaining about the difficulty are likely retarded or game journalists, in which case they are already retarded. I beat the initial game in about 6-7 hours. Again, it is a short game, but the flame that burns twice as hot looks really ****ing cool and is a ton of fun to play with. Isn't that how it goes?

Some games are designed around how to stimulate those pleasure centers that hook their users. Why, just yesterday my gf said she's addicted to Word Blitz because of the tactile and aural feedback it provides. And I must concur, it is extremely satisfying.

Can't remember the movie, but it was about a couple where the guy got the girl into drugs. The guy went to prison, got clean, then lead a regular life, while the girl would peer in around a dark corner.

Her internal struggle is of course, while she is happy for her former partner rising above street life, she is saddened and resentful over having been abandoned.

At the end of the movie, she dies, and it cuts to the guy celebrating his child's first birthday w/ the new wife.

Sounds like some doujins I've read, as well as some family members' lives!

Checked out Dauntless over the past week; enjoying it. Have some critiques however, it's pretty fun to play for what it is. Quite a bit more arcadey and less immersive than MH world, but because of that I can play a couple hunts and do something else without needing to worry too much about having all the appropriate items etc. It's free, worth a shot if you like hunting/action with lite rpg elements.

Got burned from Pokemon after White. Well, I mean I played White for about an hour and realized it's just the same formula over and over and over. I like RPGs, but the story has to keep me engaged.

But with Sword and Shield coming out I decided to give White a second chance.

I think it was because right before that I played each generation back to back. Did Yellow, then FireRed, then Emerald (my favorite after HeartGold), then Platinum, then HeartGold (best in the series). Grinding with weak Pokemon every time I booted was a chore. But, it's been a few years so maybe I'll get back at it. I already own Black 2 and X, so I imagine I'll  do the same thing as before and get burned out a second time.   :))

Yup, that's why I cannot understand how Pokemon lasted so long as a franchise. it's the exact same **** over and over and over. The peak was Ruby and Sapphire imo, it was all downhill/or should I say the same hill from that point on. That was the last one that really felt like a true sequel and upgrade to the series.

You're a 10-year-old kid with one/no parent(s). You begin by getting your first Pokemon from the main professor of the town. Mom kisses you goodbye and you leave.
You meet one/two main friends who help you throughout the game. You catch weak Pokemon, level them up, battle six gyms, then the Elite Four. All the while an evil/misguided gang is trying to capture/use Pokemon for their evil/misguided ways.
And throw in some gimmick to change the appearance of the older 'mon to make it seem "new."

All of the games I've played are like this. The other mainstream RPGs I played (e.g., Dragon Quest, FF, etc.) at least have different storylines and different kinds of characters. True, you start weak and grind up like any other RPG, but, as I mentioned, it's the story that keeps me engaged (and the attacks with flashy effects).

I started to feel the same way for TLoZ during Skyward Sword. In one of the levels, I even asked myself (alone in my living room), "Why am I even playing this game?" Didn't play a game in the franchise after that until BotW. I wasn't even excited for BotW until I started seeing streams of it after release. What a breath of fresh air for that series.

Been playing Remnant: From the Ashes since yesterday; really fun so far. Pretty difficult; while I have played souls-like games, I am by no means great, even good at them. This one has a good mix of melee/ranged combat, neat world and aesthetic; and is procedurally generated, even the first bosses friends and I have encountered solo have been different. I could be understanding it incorrectly. The game kind of reminds me of The Secret World, except without abysmal gameplay.

3DS:
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
Pokemon White

I recently installed CFW on my 3DS. It's pretty neat.

Remnant has been awesome. Co-op is so well done where friends can drop in and out and experience different fights each time.

Agreed, tbh I couldn't believe how easy it was to co-op compared to other titles with similar ideas. They've done a damn good job making some AAA look bad at implementation of certain things.

Can be retro/modern/PC/mobile/Tiger Electronics/etc.

Currently playing Chrono Trigger. Been putting it off for so long. Now that I have a bit of a break from studies Iíve been hunkering down when the rest of the family is asleep and trying to play as much as I can until school starts again.

(Attachment Link)

Not far into it (about maybe a fourth, if that), but so far I really like it. The story and characters are a bit cliche by today's standards, but they are colorful and relatable. The battle system is very good, and I can see myself tweaking it soon to fit my needs. Playing on the DS Lite made me realize how small the screens are (been used to the 3DS XL screens), but it's definitely manageable.

Currently playing Super Mario World 2 and Buildroyale.io . I'm a true gamer guys B)

After reading about Far Cry in a gaming mag recently, I got the urge to play it again (the first one).

After about half an hour I remembered how frustrating parts of it are, how many times you have to replay areas because you didn't reach the checkpoint before getting killed.

Not sure it I'll be able to continue playing - it is just too frustrating for a quick run around a tropical island a couple of times a weekend.

I started this game a few days ago and so far itís very good.  I usually play a few rounds of Apex at night on PC and the Switch on the couch in handheld mode.  This is another great game for that.  I heard a lot of comparisons to Persona but itís much more cheesy than charming in comparison to P4.  The school/battle structure is similar but being stuck at a religious school in a medieval fantasy world feels less slice of life than a moderately explorable modern rural Japan.

Playing Blasphemous. It's good but far from great, or even being a flawed masterpiece. The game does seem to be on the short side, and ultimately it feels like a bunch of planned features were cut in the interest of time. I'm not a big fan of the soundtrack either, it is forgettable at best. There is a fair amount of backtracking, and it seems like the level designer has not worked on a Metroidvania game before due to how poorly areas flow together. The controls are tight and the combat is fun. I am always excited to encounter a new enemy type and see what they do. The art direction is amazing at times, but weirdly bland at others. I dunno, the game is good, but just feels rushed. There could've been so much more polish that would've elevated this from good to great. I like it much better than some similar offerings like Dark Devotion, Death's Gambit, and Slain. Honestly the aesthetic and story could've gone even darker. I think if we ever see a sequel it will come together as something really great, but this is still worth playing.

I think this just help me decide to wait awhile before getting Blasphemous. At least until there's a better sale. The atmosphere really resemble Dark Souls, of which I'm a huge fan of. But I'm already in the middle of playing Hollow Knight and my usual multiplayer games Rocket league and Rainbow Six Siege.

The controls are tight and the combat is fun. I am always excited to encounter a new enemy type and see what they do. The art direction is amazing at times, but weirdly bland at others. I dunno, the game is good, but just feels rushed. There could've been so much more polish that would've elevated this from good to great. I like it much better than some similar offerings like Dark Devotion, Death's Gambit, and Slain. Honestly the aesthetic and story could've gone even darker. I think if we ever see a sequel it will come together as something really great, but this is still worth playing.

I think this just help me decide to wait awhile before getting Blasphemous. At least until there's a better sale. The atmosphere really resemble Dark Souls, of which I'm a huge fan of. But I'm already in the middle of playing Hollow Knight and my usual multiplayer games Rocket league and Rainbow Six Siege.

I'm still playing it a fair amount, but need to take breaks because the backtracking gets really old. And on top of that it's still fairly buggy. Last night I dodge-rolled away from a boss and wound up clipping through the wall and getting stuck in black nothing unable to finish the fight.

Thought this might help anyone unaided by the original Japanese guide.  At the time of the first completion, I must have borrowed the guide from one of the local libraries.

Played through the RE3 demo yesterday. It's fine and ran stable, but the aiming felt way off. On top of the terrible aiming controls Capcom has been using this new engine lately I am really not a fan of. They used it in RE7 and the basis of the engine seems to be great looking textures with a completely ****ed sense of size/perspective distortion. Like there's this huge disconnect between the player's FOV and the size of the objects in the world that at times makes you feel like a tiny little person surrounded by giant assets. This carries over to the RE3 remake where I swear if I aint tripping, things change size depending on how the camera is positioned.

Also the weird decision to make quite literally EVERY SINGLE line of dialogue Jill has be a snarky sarcastic comment. It's such a weird choice to make the mc unlikable, I don't understand the writing at all.

Tried and picked up Metro Exodus again.
Played for about an hour and most of the time was all those cut-scenes. Really anoying, didn't like that.
I guess its could be just a beginning of the game, later it will be less of those and more gameplay. Will see...

Microsoft needs to either double down on the cross platform game and media sharing between PC and Xbox, or they need new and innovative ip's that aren't just more sci fi shooters and driving games. Those are the only ways they will recoup. They don't need to compete against Sony, they need to corner a different user base. Wars are expensive to fight, and inevitably it becomes a game of attrition to compete with what the other side has. Instead of thinking about how to steal Sony's customer base, MS should be focused on creating something unique only they can offer.

Meanwhile Nintendo is just sitting back in the green because they distanced their hardware from the competition and have a stable of reliable ip's they aren't afraid to tinker with instead of delivering the same game over and over. I haven't owned a Nintendo console since the Gamecube, but you've got to respect the sustainable market they've carved out for themselves.

I bought Sonic Mania a week or so ago for a few bucks. I've only played it once, but it was pretty fun. I kept having a weird issue in which my Xbox 360 controller would lock in an input until I unplugged it. I haven't figured out how to play with my iBuffalo SNES controller yet (if it's even possible).

I've been playing Apex Legends lately too. It's fun if I can get matched with team members that aren't completely morons, which is actually quite rare. I'm almost always the one with the most kills or damage dealt when we inevitably lose. I've made it to second place twice, but usually my squad is one of the first to get eliminated.

Going through both of the Quake 2 Mission Packs because I've been on a '90s/early '00s FPS kick. Level design is good and the combat, especially in the second MP, is pretty great, but both have that particularly annoying trait of having enemies that just completely kill momentum and are a pain to get rid of. The beta-class Gladiators in MP1, which aren't too tough to fight but just take so long to kill, and those damn turrets in MP2. Shame, I really think the combat in MP2 is fun and quite challenging (by Quake standards) but those turrets are both cheap and annoying a lot of the time.

It's satisfying to play for 15 minutes or for a couple of hours, which is mostly whats keeping me away from FF7 Remake because by the time of the evening I get to game I'm a bit tired and don't feel like getting into something long and fairly challenging.

I'm a big fan of EU4 but I burned myself out on it around when the emperor update came out so I decided to give Imperator a shot now that they've (allegedly) made it good

DUSK

Wow. Not only a fantastic retro shooter, but just an incredible fps all around. The music is just stunning, done by the man himself Andrew Hulshult. The art direction is perfect, creating this mysterious and foreboding world while never once slowing down or dev-splaining plot. The level design... I cannot say enough good things about the level design. It retains that old school Quake feel while bringing forward modern level design elements you'd never thing would work so well, and the way they introduce gradually more complicated ideas. It's just brilliant. Well balanced weapons too. I actually find myself switching on-the-fly for specific situations like DOOM Eternal but in Dusk it's much more organic. Each weapon feels closer in power while still offering different systems of delivering said lead.
I'm also aware Stephan Weyte is in the game later so I'm greatly looking forward to that.

If you've ever played Quake and liked it you'll like this. It's dare I say far better than Quake, building on the bones of it's ancestor to make a modern-retro shooter that in my opinion is unparalleled. I haven't played EVERY modern-retro shooter (yet,) but this is the best one I've ever played.

If there's one thing I can complain about it's the door puzzles. Totally unneeded and arbitrary since they are just guessing games, the game gives you no hints so you just stand there like an idiot trying every combination until you guess it correctly. Super lame. Thankfully there's not many of 'em.

After 7 agonizing days of downloading I finally got Halo the MCC to download on Steam. Internet at this fob is horrible and can only play single player. It's been pretty fun. I remember playing Halo CE-3 and fun to play again.

I really liked Reach and started with that. Got halfway through CE before taking a break as it's so repetitive. Just finished up Halo 2 the other day and moved on to Halo 3. Overall it's been worth the money and helping the end of this deployment go by, would recommend for others.

Ace Combat 7 has been fun too, but I wish I brought a controller with me.

Yeah, they kept it in the port. I believe it is the tab key. I would use it every once in awhile to get a better view of where enemies were, as some levels were a lot darker in the H2 Anniversary edition.

Went on a live event for one of my favourite games only for the event to go haywire, level 60s and 210s going all over the map, had to seek shelter and glitch underground only for me to join a game because i used a teleporter. Devs had to issue a public apology due to the number of bugs in the game. Many players have waited 9 months for this update thats how long it took for them to develop

It is a REALLY good turn-base game, where you are a band of mercenaries in medievalish/low fantasy world with great replayability.
If you loved old x-coms or Jagged Alliance type games, you will love this one.

A year or two ago (or three?! I have no concept of time anymore), I started playing the Pirate's Moon expansion for Mechwarrior 3 that I never had back in the day. I got stuck and put it away for a long while. I picked up where I left off and beat the campaign a couple days ago, and now I'm playing through the Pirate missions. This game is rather difficult even on the medium difficulty setting. Some of the missions take ten or fifteen tries to complete, usually requiring tweaks to my 'mech configurations.

A lot of the difficulty is from playing with a joystick, I think. I remember playing the base Mechwarrior 3 several years ago with a mouse, and it was laughably easy.

This is why I know I can never start playing POE. 300hrs is considered starting. Part of what I love about AARPGs is the ability to quickly max level different builds to experiment. I can't imagine putting in 300hrs then winding up hating the build.

A year ago I'd say no, but it gets better with every substantial update. Unfortunately those are like 3x a year. There's a huge one coming tough where they are going to add heists and houses/hideouts like in GTA Online which will liven things up a lot.

I will agree Athena has the best Call in the game hands down. With enough poms you can get a straight 12-14 second invincibility. You can kill or grievously wound any boss in the game in 12-14 seconds even with an otherwise ****ty build. Her call is so much better than any other in the game it's not even fair.

Got reminded of Caesar III a couple of weeks ago. I never actually owned it back in the day but I think I'd a demo of the 2nd level I played to death. Bought it for a fiver on Steam and I've been playing it pretty compulsively since. It's really easy lose 3 hours at a sitting and being able to go on Youtube and work out what you're doing wrong in the modern era makes city building games a lot more forgiving.

I played through Shovel Knight and really enjoyed it. Rather skeptical cos I was feeling a bit burned out on NES style platformers but the game is spectacularly well polished. It's more actiony than Metroidvania-ish as well so doesn't outstay its welcome. Neither is it as difficult as something like Celeste which I got a bit bogged down in by the midway point.

If you're the type to only do the main quests, Cyberpunk is not for you. That being said, the main story is short, but only in the context of open world RPGs. It's maybe 15 hours.

I bought Prodeus a couple days ago. I'm still undecided on whether I like it. It's fun, and I like the style, but it's in early access and definitely still needs some tweaks.

-The map is terrible, so I don't even use it.
-The difficulty is not high enough. It has seven difficulty settings, and I'm playing on the highest one, and it's not hard, partly because checkpoints don't reset enemies, meaning that dying in a fight has no consequence.
-Level design is pretty decent, but the setting feels repetitive (high tech complex mixed with a volcano).
-Enemies are not varied enough.
-The blood is way over done. Everything turns into a geyser of blood when the player shoots it. It's to the point that it's just annoying and loses its effect.

I guess it boils down to feeling too easy and repetitive, but I can tell it has potential.

I'm still on Monster Hunter World, looking to finish the Iceborne expansion before Rise comes out. Probably still going to return to that game after finishing it, but most of my time will be going to Rise at that point. MH is too addicting for me lol.

Other than that, I just started Octopath Traveller on my Switch, because apparently I'm some sort of masochist and can't stop myself from starting & getting invested in these ages-long games! Between Monster Hunter's long grind cycle, Octopath's 8 storylines, my recent thought of jumping back into the Diablo-like series I enjoy (the Adventures of Van Helsing), and the theoretically infinite replayability of the roguelikes I tend to return to from time to time (Noita, Hades, Risk of Rain 2, etc.) combined with how long it takes to unlock everything in them, I'm starting to think I don't like having free time where I'm not playing games lol

Not even counting my recent thought of playing through the entire Witcher series from 1-3 because the crossover missions from Monster Hunter make me want to hunt down a Leshen in its own game, I really can't stop myself.

(Attachment Link)

Nice!  I started playing Doom 3 after years of owning it.  I miss the ID games.

Man that was late to the party on both. Haha. I couldn't finish Doom 3 because the game was too scary.

Same here! Couldn't finish Doom 3, all those weird bold dead guys coming out of nowhere, doggy-style mosters... I liked that shotgun though...

However, now I kinda want to try it again, play that Doom 3: BFG Edition version.

Quick note on the BFG edition, it kinda split a lot of the people who liked Doom 3, because while on one hand it was updated a little bit and used some higher-res textures, on the other they messed with the lighting effects (the selling point of the original for a lot of people) to make them a bit more diffused, which led to fewer stark differences in lighting and fewer moments where you felt it was harder to see a monster.

Also, they made it so you can use both a gun and your flashlight at the same time, which kinda ruins some of the more suspenseful moments imo.

BFG is the only way to play D3 honestly. Lighting can be fixed and adjusted, but bad controls cannot (I mean literally the flashlight mod I guess)

Oh, I'm not saying it's a bad way to play the game. Especially if you're going for a console edition over the PC edition. I'm just saying that between the 2 I prefer the more suspenseful feeling of the original, as the inability to use the flashlight without leaving yourself temporarily defenseless adds to the more horror-themed vibe they were going for with that particular entry. I understand if you prefer BFG edition though, the original is definitely not everyone's cup of tea.

Doom3 was designed in the CRT era.  So to get authentic DARK FEELS you gotta have either OLED or CRT.

Exactly the reason that when I get together a WIN98 PC for older games I'm going to be getting a CRT monitor. Those games were designed for CRT monitors, and it feels wrong to use something else when the tech is right there and begging to be used in the time we have before it stops functioning.

See, just started to play Splinter Cell Blacklist for like 5th time, only this time I really noticed advantage of my new OLED screen. Those black areas in this game look totally different than on my previous VA panel.
Ok guys, will try BFG tonight and let you know😊

Have fun with it! I may not prefer BFG edition myself, but it is in no way an inferior version. Like keebs, it's kinda up to preference!

As for myself, I've just been crashing after work the past few nights, but I've gotten into a bit of a gaming mood. Not sure if I'm going to play Monster Hunter, Halo, or Doom Eternal just yet though... Maybe even some Octopath Traveller, but I want to get my speakers replaced first so I don't have to use headphones to hear the voice acting when running it through my monitor. Probably going to stick to PC stuff over my Switch until I can get that taken care of.

Honestly, I'm not sure. I was planning on keeping my current ones for a while yet, but they're older hand-me-downs from family, and the right speaker in the setup (just a simple 2 speaker, 1 subwoofer setup) died, and I can't just use one side of the audio for music and games. Just doesn't work for me. Probably going to get something of comparably decent quality, maybe an upgrade if I can afford it around bills.

NT it's very difficult to fotograph OLED because of how dark it is,  the camera does not have the dynamic range to properly capture OLED's greatness in most cases.

It isn't completely dark in person. Doom 3 DID USE alot of 0,0,0 black though, so some of it is. These were the days of stencil shadow,  before alot of the fancy stuff.

I never said it looks great for the purposes of realism. Doom 3 came out in 2004, BFG edition in 2012 going only for some updates, not a whole graphical system overhaul. It looks great for Doom 3 and what Doom 3 wants to do.

Honestly tired of seeing realism being held up as the 'holy grail' of gaming visual design, all of the 'realistic' looking shooters from the late 2000s - early 2010's are known for their intense amounts of... Gray and brown. Realism, unless done very well and with some concessions made (at least in some older games, it's yet to be seen with the new gen of consoles and PC hardware), usually doesn't age well. Meanwhile, Jet Set Radio, Borderlands, the older Monster Hunter games, WindWaker, and other games with more stylized art direction, still hold up very well (with some low res textures, sure, but that's hardly a deal breaker, especially if we're talking older games). Yes, realism can look very good, but more often than not it tends to slip into the uncanny valley or muddy, muted, and gross tones across the screen at all times.

Shadows and other things don't always need to look realistic, they just need to look like they fit in the game's art style and serve the purposes they need to in the context of the game.

For Doom 3, Tp4 recommends  Using Nvidia's Supersampling 4x via the override in the nvidia control panel.

The 8x Supersampling makes the textures too blurry even though it does have the best edge-smoothing performance.

The 8x AA in game setting has the sharpest textures, but spatial aliasing isn't nearly as good as Supersample

The 16x AA in game setting is weird, IDK what it is, it blurs textures despite the fact that it's suppose to be MSAA,   I guess it might not be, but it does not look like the 2/4/8x SSampling result, so meh.

I was born a year after this game was released, and I remember my dad playing it all the time. It might sound silly, but most of the memories I have of him are related to memories of the game, just because he introduced me to it and let me run on his behalf when I was a kid. Years later, I have my own laptop and can now play on my own, and it still has the same magic as when I was a kid. The music, the sets, the characters, the animations, everything is great. I like to wander around because the storyline is fun and collect ores and herbs to sell to the auction house, but if you just like combat and action, it's optional. The point is, it is very useful for all types of gamers. I really enjoyed this game.

Monster Hunter Rise has been GREAT. It feels so good to have the quality of live improvements made in World for the 5th gen of MH, but without the broken bs of the clutch claw. The game just feels so good to play! I've also been playing MH4U, which brings the total number of MH games I'm playing at once, at least in some capacity, to five... I may have a problem.

I've also been playing Super Mario 3D All Stars, not for 64 (I can emulate it better, and have a USB Brawler64 controller to do so that is much better suited for that game than the Switch controllers), but for Sunshine and Galaxy. For Sunshine, I have a GameCube, but haven't found a copy of Sunshine anywhere to play it on original hardware, and last I checked it's a little on the expensive side. For Galaxy, I don't even have the room to keep my GameCube set up long-term, not even counting the trouble I'd have to go through to even get a Wii and find a place to store it between uses. And as for emulation, setting up actual motion controls in an emulator is possible, but I don't want to have to go through all of the trouble just for the few first-and-second party games that were great for the console. Thing had a lot of games but most were shovelware.

I never know whether to post on this thread or the other computer games one.

Anywho, I've been playing through all the original Doom games lately since I never actually played through them entirely, except for Doom 1 on GBA with god mode on (which doesn't count because of cheating and also because all console ports are missing levels and such). I'm using save files and not starting over with a pistol when I die, so the games aren't terribly difficult.

So far, I've beaten Ultimate Doom, Sigil, Romero's E1M4b and E1M8b (holy crap this was hard), Doom II, Master Levels for Doom II, and most of TNT Evilution. Next, I'll play The Plutonia Experiment and then maybe some community mega wads if I'm not entirely sick of the games by then. So far the only one I really haven't enjoyed is the Master Levels. Doom II's base levels were a little annoying at times and not visually appealing as well, but not terrible.

------------------------------

I started "Hypnospace Outlaw" recently. At first, it was a little boring partly because I had to wrap my head around what exactly the objective of the game is, and all the mechanics have to be explained because it's not entirely intuitive. On my second play session tonight, I started to enjoy it. It really does capture the 90s-era Internet of AOL and Geocities pages, but the desktop experience is more like Amiga Workbench. All the music and art that went into it is also rather funny and creative. The premise of the game is a little weak though because it feels as though the developer just made a whole bunch of silly webpages and had to come up with a reason to make the player look through all of them. The way I've started thinking about it is I would be browsing the web late at night anyway, so why not browse the fictional web in this game? It would be interesting if there were some kind of multiplayer aspect where you could encounter other people in Hypnospace. Part of the odd feeling is knowing everything is fictional and no real people are there since it's supposed to be the Internet.

I kept reading that Daikatana has been greatly improved over the years, so I bought it a while back and played the first couple hours, and I did not enjoy it. All I remember is constantly stepping in poison or getting shot by poison and having to shoot very small flying enemies. Maybe I'll give it another shot someday.

Fifteen years ago or so, I bought the N64 version for my friend, which is considered even worse, and he actually rather enjoyed it. I, on the other hand, got stuck in the first or second level because I couldn't figure out where to go (I think it was something as simple as needing to crouch, but it wasn't obvious because the button combo for crouching was not intuitive IIRC).

For me, the issues boiled down to the friendly AI just being absolutely terrible, the weapons just not feeling great, the story being terrible even for a FPS story from that time, and it just didn't feel anywhere near as good to play as some other games from the time, like Quake 2 and 3. I gave up when I ran into a game-breaking glitch that kicked one of the AI companions out of the level geometry right at the end of one of the levels, and I just did not want to play that level all the way through again. This is all me comparing it to other FPS games of the time because I was super interested in them for a while, now I just want to get them physical to play them on original hardware.

Everyone has preferences but Daikatana just is not mine, hands down.

Been getting back in to Vermintide 2 with the new Kerillian class (because Kerillian is my favorite character in that game), and because the Chaos Wastes are immensely fun. They added what is essentially infinite replay value to a game that used to be much more limited in that aspect, even with the content-focused DLC released for it. Makes it an even better way to scratch that itch for a game that feels kinda like Left 4 Dead, but with a twist, until Warhammer 40K Darktide comes out. Which looks like it's going to be just as fun as Vermintide when it releases!

Yeah, that game looks interesting as well. Just depends on how many of my friends I can convince to play it. Kinda like with that World War Z game? Really good game for the Left 4 Dead-style type of game, with really fun horde moments, but I couldn't convince any of my friends to get it with me to play, so it didn't grip me as much. I'm one of those people that really enjoys a game more when I have people to share the experience with.

I am really starting to feel like Twilight Princess is not a very good game. In fact I'm starting to think it may be the worst mainline Zelda game ever made by a wide margin.

Rocket League is my everything for now. I play it for several months and already became a gold league member. I like it due to short games, as it was with Fall Guys.

A group of mates and I played Overwatch for the first time over the weekend. I've gone back to it several nights since then and have really been enjoying it. It's not my normal style of FPS game, I'm more a fan of the round-based games such as Counter-Strike and Valorant, but the different game modes and team compositions has really hooked me.

It is a game that I much rather playing with a group of friends though. I don't think I would have jumped in without others. Even if I had, I definitely wouldn't have had the fun and enjoyment if I was playing by myself.

I love seeing Guilty Gear Strive doing so well, it warms my heart to see a fighting game getting such great numbers. Top selling game on Steam for the week is a fighting game! So rad. Also the game looks freakin beautiful.

I love seeing Guilty Gear Strive doing so well, it warms my heart to see a fighting game getting such great numbers. Top selling game on Steam for the week is a fighting game! So rad. Also the game looks freakin beautiful.

I need to get Strive. I like fighting games (even though I'm not great at them), but I haven't been able to get Strive for a few main reasons. The first, and biggest, is that my spare cash has been going towards getting the tools and materials together to start building and painting myself a Warhammer 40K army. Since I have an airbrush I was recently gifted as a hand-me-down from a craft loving family member, that includes the cost of getting an air compressor I should've gotten a long time ago anyway (in case of flat tires), one of the smaller ones, but still pricey. Not to mention the cost of paints, the minis themselves, and some of the things I still need to get to finish getting my air compressor ready to go (such as thread tape for the fittings to finish getting some parts ready to be able to plug into the air compressor without leaking a ton of air from the tank).

The other big factor is that I just have a ton of games that I have, but need to get around to actually finishing, or in some cases, actually playing. I have this bad habit of letting games I legitimately enjoy pile up and up, never ceasing in their growth, while my attention shifts from one game to another too quick for me to finish the ones I have. Honestly, I'm going to blame that one on my untreated ADHD, but that doesn't mean it isn't happening.

Still probably going to grab Strive soon-ish though, ArcSys games kick ass.

Also, to at least nominally get back on topic, I've been getting back into playing tons of Halo because of Infinite hype, and on my Switch I've decided to finally try and finish up BotW.

I'm currently playing Overwatch mainly after a long time of not playing it regularly and I'm really enjoying it again! Pretty excited for Overwatch 2 even though some of the announcements have been a bit lacklustre...

I'm also playing League of Legends, Apex Legends, Euro Truck Simulator 2 (really enjoying the Multiplayer Beta atm), Smite, FFXIV and Fall Guys! Too many games, such little time.

I'd be playing Animal Crossing as well but sadly my Switch died a few months back and I didn't really wanna pay what Nintendo asked me to pay to fix it. Hoping for the Switch Pro to be announced later in the year!

Superflight is really satisfying and fun. Highly recommended for just .74 you literally can't go wrong, it is a perfect game to just play for 10 mins here and there. I put my fan in front of me for the full sim feeling ;)

Also Ion Maiden FURY. Amazing to see what they did with the Build Engine, just insane. Really difficult though.

I started playing Serious Sam 4 after picking it up on sale recently (after dieing twice in Satisfactory trying to setup a nuclear power plant).

It's very much like the First and Second Encounters, although with levels set in more or less present day Earth (actually a little in the future, but seems like it could be now).

Having played FE and SE several times each, I'm finding this one a little bit meh.  You walk along a long empty path, and suddenly enemies spawn high up on the rocks on either side.  You start shooting them, then hear the rumble of more coming from the far end of the path.  Repeat.  There's little scoping enemies from afar - they generally spawn only when you enter an area near their spawn points.

The graphics are pretty, but the maps are linear, and I'm not sure how much longer I can keep playing it.

It is well known that in video games, most of the actions that virtual characters take are acts of violence. Whether we're talking about firing a gun, wielding a sharp weapon, or jumping on Mario's enemies, we have to admit that "eliminating" opponents is not a very peaceful practice. To play a regular game, you need to find more information (https://lavicheats.com/league-of-legends-hacks-script-comboes/) to not have the trauma of that violence or what can happen during the game XD. But already, everyone does what he wants with his life and what he wants to play.

Dear Esther does not involve any violence.

Neither does The Witness.

Satisfactory has a minimum of violence to dispense with aggressive creatures, MOST of that game involves factory building.

So, apparently to fuel my addiction to grind-heavy, huge time investment games, a friend of mine introduced me to Spacelords. I now have yet another addiction.

Also, my sister convinced me to grab Total War: Warhammer II during the Summer Sale (to play with her and a mutual friend of ours), and I figured I should also grab the DLC for the vampire pirate faction because they're vampire pirates! Can't get much better than that imo for cool fantasy factions. Have yet to play the game, but since I'm not a fan of RTS I'll probably have battles on auto while mainly focusing on the turn-based main game, which is more my speed for strategy games (though I'm still not a fan of grand strategy games. I'd rather play WH40K tabletop lol).

So... I have yet to play Total War: Warhammer II, as my sister, our friends, and I haven't been able to get a game going due to the schedules not quite lining up yet. But I did get through a bit of my backlog, namely Ghostrunner. This game is amazing if you're a fan of movement shooters, because it's basically a movement shooter like Titanfall 2, but with melee combat over shooting combat and the game being built as a platformer. The story isn't the strongest, sure, but that's not why you play that particular game. Honestly considering going for 100% on it.

I've also recently been dipping my toes back into MH Rise, as I haven't touched it for a bit in favor of some other games my friends have been playing, and it is definitely still a really good Monster Hunter game. Hell yeah.

Also been playing some Vermintide 2 lately, working on one of the hardest levels in the game and it is just kicking my group's ass. Still fun af though.

And, last but definitely not least, I found a complete in box copy of Pokemon Platinum, which I've been searching for in order to add to my collection for literal years. My personal favorite in the series, hands down, in the original box with the original documentation and manual. It cost me about $160 US before tax, but it was well worth it for the nostalgia and to have a physical copy of what is, in my opinion, the best Pokemon game ever released.

Been playing Might and Magic 8 Merge Mod, which is a mod created by some galaxy brained crazy person that somehow merged M&M 6/7/8 into a single game using the M&M8 engine. No idea how they did it, or what autistic black magic 4th dimension coding they used to do something so demanding for no gain, but it is flooding me with nostalgia and frustration. Nostalgic frustration, but in a good way. Ahh childhood. When the most complicated task of my week was figuring out how to push a hidden puke green switch on a puke green wall behind a barrier while being attacked by wraiths and skeletons to retrieve a nameless crystal for reasons I cannot discern.

Been playing the diagnostic game w/ getting New World to run properly on my rig - ran fine in the Alpha but now get random crashes (full system power cut) in certain areas in the beginning.  Don't want to chance frying my GPU which fortunately has maxed out at 55-60c (benefits of a full cover waterblock on my GPU).  So far this is the only title to cause this out of my large backlog of games.

If you are lucky enough have one of the higher end GPUs to come out in recent years, be careful with that game. I don't know if it's just on the Nvidia 3090s and 3080s, or if it's the entire 3000 series, or if it even applies to Radeon GPUs, but I have seen some troubling stuff recently that New World can actually brick those GPUs. It's one of the few new games I would recommend playing on a less powerful GPU just in case. I would recommend looking into it more and not taking my word on it at any sort of face value, since there's articles and videos that can go into much more detail than I can given that I only heard of the issue recently, don't know much about it since I don't plan to play New World and haven't looked into it that deeply, and I'm at work and can't access anything to look into it further right now.

TL;DR: I've heard New World is bricking some higher end GPUs, I don't know any more than that so look into it further if you're running one.

Honestly, if I were to get a console other than my Switch, it would be a PS5. I have a PC, so all of the exclusives I would want from Xbox are already available to me, and I have a Switch for the Nintendo titles. I don't have a lot of games I would get for the console, honestly, but I would definitely use it for Bloodborne, God of War, Demon's Souls, and the new Sackboy game (I know it's not the greatest, but hey, it's a new 3D platformer from a AAA publisher other than Nintendo in today's market, which is great, and they included music from one of my favorite bands, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. I'm kinda obligated to play it lol). There's a few more I can't think of at the moment, but those are the main ones.

Currently, though, I'm trying to focus on a move and finally finishing up Monster Hunter: World. Need those Fatalis and AT Velkhana sets added to my arsenal before I consider myself done with that game, and that's not counting that I want every layered armor.

Recently started playing Breath Of The Wild.
It is really really boring to me. Running around these huge areas with nothing to do. But particularly the dungeon design really bothers me. Unlike every other Zelda game, the dungeons in BotW have almost no combat, and are focused on puzzle solving. They are all sterile, look exactly the same, offer nothing interesting or new between them. I miss having a dozen or so dungeons with personality that felt different and gave you exciting new tools to use in them. Now it feels like work seeing the hundred something dull cookie cutter boring lifeless dungeons, I would actively avoid them if not that there was absolutely nothing else interesting to do in the game. I really do not understand the love for this game at all, it is so empty, so tedious, and so boring.

I had gotten Call of Duty Vanguard, Industria and Chernobylite recently, I had just started on Vanguard when my niece dropped by from Canada, to visit her sick mother. As I was busy looking after her for a week (SHN) buying food and attending to her, and ferrying her around after that, I did not have time to start on any of these games.

Funny thing is, now that she has just gone back, I can't seem to dive into games like before, but I suppose this phase would pass and I'd be back to my old self fragging like a madman.

Been playing Inscryption lately. A good mind-**** game, decent mechanics but not without it's flaws (sometimes mechanics take a backseat to story.) Definitely a unique and engaging atmospheric experience with a lot more going on than the game initially lets on. If you plan on playing this one DO NOT LOOK UP ANY PLAY THROUGHS OR WIKIS, this is a very spoiler-heavy game so going in blind is the best way. Then when you play it again you're almost guaranteed to get a different experience due to the way the game is structured, and I don't mean the 2nd time you will know everything, things will change.
Would recommend
