Amnesia had inventory? I haven't played it in years but I thought you just walked around and the couple parts with monsters are puzzles.

Binary Domain is soooooo good. Probably the best TPS ever. I should play it again

Yeah, I'm liking it. Gameplay seems pretty simple though and gunplay feels pretty floaty, basically what I'd expect from the Yakuza team doing a TPS. I haven't played a Gears-ish cover game for years so idk maybe they're all like that. I just installed Gears 5 so I can compare the shooting/movement feel.

Binary Domain definitely had better enemy design IMO. Different shit happens whichever limb you choose to shoot and it adds to encounters overall. I also enjoy the squad commands in that and how it can affect your relationship with them. I don't think that game gets enough credit gameplay wise.

The reason they never made a sequel is it's such a massive bomb everywhere that it's impossible at this point. Which sucks, cause it's really a great game.

Yeah, I played some more of it (and messed with the FoV sliders until the shooting felt better and more accurate [note, it's hard to shoot well when you can't see a distant enemy]) and I'm really liking Binary Domain. Like I played a bit of Gears 5 and the shooting feels more solid and movement smoother, but you're right that the enemies in BD and stage design is pretty fun. And yeah I enjoy the dialogue responses to your team. Cutscene direction is on point for the studio and even the music is very good so far. Seems like a great game.

Mechanically Code Vein is a fun JRPG (levelling up skills, switching classes, dozo dozo arigato!) mixed with the Souls formula (bonfires, upgrades, lost souls, stamina management etc.).

But the characters................ plot.................... dialogues...................it's like I'm playing anime!

haha, so you did end up playing this :P

Started playing Crackdown 3 and it's...alright? Like it's just crackdown but in shiny this-gen HD with nice colors and more geometry, but it's still fun leveling up skills, finding agility orbs and you can still grenade spam everything. I remember Crackdown 2 being complete shit, so I guess this is a step up even if it's not trying anything at all and is just Crackdown 1 in HDDD. For free on gamepass I'm enjoying it as popcorn entertainment.

After so many series like AC have gone complete auto-climbing, it's actually kinda refreshing and satisfying for a change to try to figure out how to scale buildings from the ground to the top.

Itís definitely kind of a throw back to 2006. Not bad, but sort of a weird game in that context.

I finally took the final key for coming in in Ghouls'n'Ghosts :rejoice The second run isn't so bad once you get the magic weapon, even though you're always scared to pick up a trash weapon over it. Plus it turned the larva boss into enraging shit, which took me as long as all the other levels combined. :stahp :rage

Replayed a few stages of the SNES one to get a direct comparison. Weird how much slower that one is, but it's not that hard to get used to. Weapons overall are shittier though and I don't get why they removed upwards shooting. Still, all in all it's a slightly more satisfying game on SNES I'd say.

A lot of early SNES games had issues with slowdown.

IIRC there is a way to cheese the larva boss no matter what weapon you have, but it's been ages since I played the game.

iirc, the larva boss, you run all the way to the bottom left side of his body (without falling off) and just duck and shoot across his whole body, weapon permitting.   It should take out all his... orafices.

I remember when Super R-Type came out, it had such massive shitty SNES slowdown, but some mags were claiming it was  intended to do that.  :lol

right, but the true ending weapon doesn't have the range, so it makes it suck.

I am not buying/ warezing/ playing Code Vein. It's trash from what I saw on Twitch.

I am seriously impressed with this title. The animu/ waifu front should not blot out the core of the game - which is frankly speaking quite good.

Vampyr
It's really pretty. You can really feel the pneumonia creeping in. Animation technology needs to catch up, though. The bumbling puppets really clash with the immaculate environments. Until then, devs need to learn that less is more with face-to-face conversations. Small movements and fewer of them. The constant twitching triggered by every line was dumb when Bioware did it in Mass Effect, but it still happens.

The game's structrue is a little opaque to me still and the save system is entirely inscrutable (you just have to pay attention to when it autosaves, I guess /shrug). Every night seems to last as long as you want to walk around, at least, so I can explore at my leisure and talk to people.

I had also assumed that blood would be much harder to come by, to really tempt you into sucking on patients or staff, but there really is not need so far, as you can actually gain XP in conversation and by doing tasks for people. I think it pales in comparison to a plumped up and personally treated nurse (?), but if there's really no need...

What puzzles me most so far: The game is undecided on how to allow you to replenish blood mid-combat. It teaches the stun-then-suck method, as though it would be central to combat, but the mechanics of it are really cumbersome and punishing. Enemies becomes harder to stun after every successful stun (which is backwards, but whatever) and hardier enemies not only have giant stun bars, but can also outright resit attempts. And to top it off, the whole point, landing a bite, recovers very little blood unless you invest into upgrading your bite (instead of flashy vampire powers).

But then then I found an offhand knife that draws blood on hit. It's reasonably quick, replenishes instantly and so far it's enough for a heal or a special attack. Upgrades will make it last longer. Unless this is just a gimme to make the early goings easier I'm going to be building my character in this direction.

So I can either use powers, then waste a bunch of time whittling them down to land a bite, or just - damage them with a blood sucky knife? I mean, player freedom is nice and I'd much rather do the latter, but why have the whole stun nonsense in the first place?

Started up Days Gone just in time for Halloween.  Thereís certainly some jank going on, but Iím alright with it so far because the game is already coasting on some good will from actually having killable zombie kids.  Thatís always been a pet peeve of mine, how often ďzombie gamesĒ just ignore children being caught up in a zombie pandemic.

Vampyr
Didn't think through the implications of an important choice, because I conditioned myself to go for pick blue lines (vampiric powers to compel or even command people). That ended up effectively wiping the mind of the 'pillar' in White Chapel, causing her undeground hospital to be close, her to become infected with ghoul-itis, and eventually be killed by my hand. :I
Now I have to make more visits to the area to keep the people healthy and I think I locked myself out of ever stabalizing the situation there. :stahp

I quite like this game, even though the absolutely dismal atmosphere is starting to affect me and the combat is already becoming rote.

Mean, but effective. I'm already dreading the next one.

This is the first game I've played that genuinely makes me feel like a menacing predator in sheep's clothing. It wouldn't work if I played Dr. Reid as a remorseless jackal, or a cattle farmer who plumbs up his patients for the slaughter, rather than the redemptive healer I'm aiming for. Buying into the latter gives the dilemmas weight. Clever game. :obama

Vampyr was commercially successful [according to its publisher] so hopefully we'll get a sequel sometime where they can flesh out some things out and smooth out the wrinkles.

Outer Worlds really disappointed me so I figured it was time to revisit Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire for the first time since finishing it at release and confirm that Obsidian can in fact still create a good game with good writing and compelling quests.

Currently playing a Holy Slayer (Paladin / Rogue) on PotD Solo difficulty (with no level scaling for now, Iím not that nuts).

I think in a lot of ways Deadfire was far far too ambitious for itís own good and while I like the overall tale it does fall short of its intended goals. That being said the design of the class system is insanely good and I really hope they have a chance to reuse it in an Icewind Dale sort of follow up to Deadfire in the Pillars universe because god damn is it fun to create characters here. Between the subclasses and multiclassing options you could spend a ridiculous number of hours planning out and testing builds before ever embarking on the main quest. I love what Obsidian built here and hope they arenít relegated to squeezing as much blood as possible from The Outer Worlds.

Yeah, Pillars II has a lot of strong strengths.

I think the biggest issues with II is the story feels too ambitious for a single game/map and the companions are waaaaaaaaaaay less interesting than I (they probably shouldn't have brought back half the cast from I in retrospect so II's original cast could've stood on their own), also the sailing and sailing fighting was too simple and it had to be because otherwise sailing would be tedious.

But the combat gameplay, character builds, graphics, cities, questing, music, writing were all fantastic


If you didn't play the DLCs when you finished at release, play them now. The winter one is really good, the adventure island one is fun with a neat short story and the last one is eh, just a long dungeon crawl for better or worse.

Not feeling the new Nioh 2 beta at all, even though I like the new mechanics in theory. It feels much more annoying than Nioh, but I don't know if that just is because played I played too many superior action games like Monster Hunter World and Sekiro since. Especially the boss feels like a cheap shit version of a similar thing in Monster Hunter. Also they really needed to cut either the overboarding loot or something else, because these new demon shenigans make combat essentials simply too excessive. Then there's all the new crap in the menu and you barely know what to focus on.

Also finished Yooka Laylee 2D. The final level is a little too crazy, but thankfully it isn't quite as long as it was suggested at first.

Got 1000/1000 in Tembo the Badass Elephant.

Good, not great game. Very nostalgic though, feels like something from 1997 on the PS1. Very likeable main character/mascot with suitable elephant powers. Solid platformer which was challenging enough but never too tough

Finished Vampyr. The ending was a bit too schmaltzy for me, but I supposed that what I did work toward by being a saint. I never killed anyone I didn't have to, i.e. I butchered hundreds of hunters and dozens of ghouls and a couple vampires.

The last boss was kind of underwhelming. The first stage was more difficult than the last. I had read about a side quest I botched that would have netted me the best weapon in the game and that it would be useful for the last boss, but my hit and run tactics were just too powerful. :smug
spoiler (click to show/hide)
I almost forgot: Your Vamp-daddy is MERLIN! :lol
[close]

Moved on to Metro Exodus, which starts you on the wrong foot. You barely get to do anything before you are interrupted by a cutscene or dialogue. I felt straight-jacketed until I made it onto the train and started the game proper.
spoiler (click to show/hide)
They also throw out the premise that made the first game possible within the first half-hour, which is just hilarious to me.
[close]
Another annoyance is that the game has to cache shaders (?) on every change in the settings, so any fiddling becomes extra annoying as my HDD (SSD too small ._. ) is brought to its limits by writing thousands of tiny files.
First start was absolutely horrible, too. Even the intro videos stuttered like hell, since they were reading off the disk as the game was hammering it.
Just call it a load time (which is what it is) and put up a progress bar, you assholes. :beli

I'm playing with RTX on high (options: off, high, ultra :lol) with DLSS on. Definitely see some graininess and artifacts (strange lines on a railing, which I assume are thanks to DLSS) and indoors its a bit too dark, but aside from that, it's nice. I dip below 60 a lot, hover around 44fps in very intensive scenes, but adaptive sync makes it bearable. Gonna keep playing it like this.

Right. I did Aquaman first, which seems kind of like easy mode - though not by much. Vampire killer has Indiana Jones swinging though - this game :lawd Thank god it also has just the right difficulty on normal. I went back and tried western Hard Corps again and that one's just :goty.

If you have an Everdrive or other means of playing ROMs, there is an English translation of the Japanese version of Hard Corps which is by far the best way to play the game.

I guess Iím buying Code Vein when I finish Nier Automata.

Which by the way, this is the game everyone fawns over? Bitches need to pay some respect to Nier 1 because this doesnít have shit on it.

Yeah Nier 1 is better in everything outside combat.

But Automata is still great and itís biggest flaw is just the repetition of route B.
After you finish the 4th route youíll probably like Automata overall.

nier 1 was ok come on now. combat was busted, level design was trash, story was entertaining but a little to corny at times (that dialog...), and it makes you replay most areas in the second half to boot. to me it had a lot of creative ideas that the team wasn't quite good enough to pull off. nier 2 reuses a lot of the same ideas but puts in together into something that doesn't feel like a budget c-level attempt.
