Bought and played a few matches of Friday the 13th last night. Got my refund processed this morning.

What a mess that game is.

Not that I can see. I tried a quickplay match, waited for 5 minutes and nothing. Had to find a game through LFG.

Even then, everyone was on a 500ms ping, the lag was terrible, commands barely worked.

the first scene where they're at some goofy presentation on time travel got on my nerves. does it get less corny after that?

Not really. Like the crazy annoying MC grows on you, but if the humor style doesn't click, it's not going to click. I like it because it's like a team of insane people solving a mystery together almost like a Mel Brooks thing. The humor clicks with me so I find it extremely entertaining.

guys I reinstalled Diablo 1 and this game still rules. too bad my mana doesn't regenerate so I don't know what to do with my wizard now that I ran out of potions.

It makes me so sad that Blizzard has essentially forgotten that Diablo 1 even exists.

blizzard takes its sweet ass time with everything so there really is no excuse as to why they couldn't spare a few people to regularly update their earliest games. i mean, they have rock n roll racing available for download, but not diablo 1 or warcraft 1 & 2? c'mon guys

It probably has more to do with the codebase. Diablo was a Blizzard North project, as well as a more complex effort than Rock and Roll Racers.

Anno 1404 :rejoice

The whole collection (not including the futuristic ones, so 1602, 1503, 1701, 1404 only) is available for £10 at the moment on GOG, FYI.

I've been playing the Watch Dog 2, first 3 hour demo and it isn't bad. Looks nice on OG PS4 and controls well enough. They handle stealth and creative approaches to combat encounters better than Assassin's Creed does.  :lol Blows my mind how shit the stealth in AC still is.

At the same time the story and characters make me want to cringe myself out of reality.

If you're running 32-bit Windows you can just launch the executables like normally. If you're on 64-bit you need something like DOSBox or Launchbox.

Get D-Fend Reloaded, it's a front-end for DOSBox [and includes DOSBox, so no extra downloads] and vastly streamlines the process of playing old games through the DOSBox program.

I beat Fire Emblem Awakening again for the heck of it.  It got to a point where I benched everyone but Chrom because it made the game easier since I didn't have to worry about the weak scrubs dying.  :lol

ok final fantasy xiv has finally led me down the dark path of mmo timesinks. i started star wars the old republic and elder scrolls online and am getting sucked into both. star wars feels polished and looks like it has a fuckton of content. Elder scrolls is fuck ugly with awful animation and feels like a fun but sloppy regular elder scrolls game. i'm still at the "wtf is going on there's so much to learn" phase of both but there's something so relaxing and satisfying about being able to boot up and game and have plenty of stuff i can work on without getting bored or stuck.

SWTOR is absolutely worth a month or two. Some of the classes have vastly more enjoyable storylines 1-50 though (Sith Warrior, Inquisitor off the top of my head).

i'm level 12 now and i don't mind the f2p restrictions enough to pay for anything yet. they are damn annoying for sure tho - no running til level 10, no vehicle til 20, no chat til 25! - yet everything still progresses fast so the game hasn't felt tedious or anything. and the quality of the gameplay and story is on par with bioware at their height so it's been a lot of fun.

There used to be some non-peon tier that didn't require a sub but did require spending some amount of money on their store. Was some $5 pack that gave you a run increase, a speeder and something else. I think they've redone the currency thing to be loot boxes though.

Saint Sword, an underrated Taito Genesis game, one or two Youtube reviews from going way up in price. It's got semi nonlinear levels where you try and find a monster holding a key, and then once you slay the monster you can go to the exit. You're a barbarian girl and the game is not unlike Rastan. You can also transform into a centaur, a bird-woman, or a mermaid. Music is pretty damn great too:

Suikoden 2 is really good, kinda refreshing to play a game that doesn't overload you with info prompts

Started using a guide to collect all the missing stars as I'm nearing end game and can't be bothered

After Anno 1404, going back to 1701, which I never played either. It doesn't seem all that different from 1602 TBH, but at the same time, I don't know about 1404's splitting your colony into 2 factions. Not a fan of the micro-management of pay-to-refill resources either. Also 1701 is graphically superior IMO.

Also got Settlers II/III/IV for like £7 total on GOG, but that's probably going to sit there for months :lol

 The new patch for GTA 5 broke the PlayStation 4's headphone-through-controller audio separation, so now I can either get the radio station, or some ambient noise, but not both at the same time like the day before yesterday.

GTA Online and its spiffy new patch crashed on the between-Job loading screen tonight, so I decided to start something new.

Grow Home was free on PS+ a month or so ago, so I decided to give it a go. It's somewhere between a Unity jankfest and awesome. It's got crazy physics, where the player basically shoves the torso around the screen, and the legs resolve like a marionette's. The main mechanic isn't walking though, it's climbing and controlled falling. It gives me some of the Jumpin' Flash vibe, which is s good thing, but the controls are not nearly as tight.

Made it up to the cruise ship dungeon in P5, 91 hours in. Seemingly near the end, I'm hoping I can wrap it up sometime next weekend.

Beat Tales of Berseria this weekend. Kinda trucked it through the last section of the game, and skipped a lot of sidequests because I was ready to get it done, but I still liked it and think it's one of the better Tales games. Started playing some Binding of Isaac on the Switch (it's the first time I've played on a fresh save since Vanilla Isaac :eek) and gonna start playing some Zeruda. I only got about 10 hours into the Wii U version before Persona 5 came out, so it's time to give it a proper go.

I'm playing through Mother 3. Maybe it's because the series never held much nostalgia for me but it seems 90% personality and 10% substance. On chapter 7, the game play certainly doesn't come off as anything great. It's still enjoyable because of the characters and story but without those I don't think anyone would really talk about the series much at all.
