The Cuphead DLC is incredible. Hand-drawn animation, and a ton of love went into the boss designs and mechanics.
So good, and only $8! This is how DLC should be(I don't mind it took 2 years to make)

I think I will have to try this one soon.
I hesitated and left it for a long time, never liked this kind of scary animation when I was a kid.
Prefered smoother lines, like in donald duck  :))

Trackmania 2020 is probably my current favorite game, so much fun trying to improve your times on essentially infinite tracks made by the community. That being said Tarkov just wiped so I'm in that games clutches currently.

I like mining games where I can earn free bitcoins.  I like earn and play games. and it's the easiest way to get extra coins. When I need some extra coins, I just build virtual mining center and earn online. As for me it' a great way to get into crypto without any risks and having fun playing arcade games.

I beat Dusk recently! Great little game. Been playing MGS3 on the weekends. Besides that, you know I've been playing plenty of Fallout: New Vegas :D
One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten, Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen, Fourteen, Fifteen, Sixteen, Seventeen, Eighteen, Nineteen... Yeah that seems about right.

Back in the days I started playing Fallout 1 and then 2, but never finished it.
I would like to play them again. Wondering which one I should play, 1 or 2?

2, most definitely 2. Maybe look into some builds for the game just so you don't get stuck up crap creek without a paddle.

I lack the time and energy these days for MMOs. Back in the day I played Ultima Online but once my friends stopped playing...what was the point anymore.

Off-topic question: Why do you call yourself lazerpointer? Just curious because I work in the laser light industry.

I have recently started a job which gives me much more time off, so I'm getting back into it. I just keep coming back to the game, I don't know why.

Regarding my username, it's nothing cool or anything like that. I'm a fan of Xmen (Cyclops) and I think lasers are cool in general. The profile pic is probably something you're familiar with, it's a laser eye damage warning which I inverted the colors of.

Cool. You say second one was better in everything? I mean graphics and story etc?
I was thinking of 2nd.

2 for sure. Huge amount of side story stuff in that game, endless dialogue, decent writing and ideas in FO2 as well that still hold up and are still being used by modern devs narrative-wise. If you liked Planescape Torment or Disco Elysium, you'll dig Fallout 2.

Be sure to install the Restoration Project mod, it makes everything much better and modernized. Fixes a ton of stuff, adds in a lot of cut/unfinished content.

Well, back in 90s I couldn't finish PLanescape Torment because of the amount of dialogs:) I want to play Disco so bad, but I'm worried that I will drown in unknown english words...
So yeah, I will then try 2nd, but already worried if its too much text for me. I like good story but not like in PLanescape when you spent hours on reading, instead of having fun. But will definitely try it. ANd need to get that mod as you said, thanks :thumb:

Playing RDR2 story mode...
Not sure if it's epic or just okay with pretty visuals and a decent story.

One thing I will say is I am tired of the game dictating what weapons to use at times and when you can run just to build drama. Or worse, get off the horse and find the game left your weapons on the horse when you got off while chasing an animal. I had them when I stepped off, reach for a shotgun and only finding a pistol to fend off 7 wolves. Gee, thanks.

It's Maddening.

No, its not epic.
Witcher 3 is epic.
RDR2 is ok game, I played for first hour and uninstalled it. Good graphics, but it did not pull me in. It was too boring at the beginning, at least for me.

It does get better.
Took a bit and the intro was far too long (sort of like GTA), then it kind of slow burns.

I've read you're supposed to just sit back and enjoy the slower pace, unfortunately the pacing is horrible. You no sooner get into a slow casual pace only for it to do something stupid. It's stupid slow when it needs to be faster and fast when it doesn't need to be. And then a cougar jumps out of a bush and you die. There's almost nothing to this game except the primary mission, nothing on the side enhances the main story and nothing on the side tells much of anything. For such an open world, it's extremely desolate, predictable and linear.
 
I look forward to the end but I can't ever see playing it again.


The Witcher looks good but supernatural stuff just turns me off immediately.

This is why its so crap. Nothing more, you should be able to run in random sub-missions, some extra action etc
This is why Witcher is the best game ever - it has hundreds of small tasks, missions, lots of things is happenning around, you never ride through point to point without something extra happaning on the road.

I'm waiting for Enhanced version for PC, should here soon. Then I will play it whole thing again :-*
