Pretty much all of my gaming time is taken up by Rocket League and The Hunter: Call of the Wild. They are both like video game comfort food to me right now and have been for the past 12 months.

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.

Yeah that's Vampyr. If it's the choice I'm thinking of pretty much everyone falls for it so don't feel too bad. Pretty sure they do that to make sure you're paying attention.

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

I almost forgot: Your Vamp-daddy is MERLIN! :lol

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.

Castlevania Bloodlines - oh my gawd :leon Who thought that all I ever needed is a Castlevania eurotrip with Aquaman? :lawd

It's one of my favorites in the series by far.  Make sure to play through with both characters, since they can get to different areas the other one can't.

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.

Looks like shit.

I still want to try this when it's being dumped for $10-$20.

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.

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.

When I started Metro Exodus I got until the train and then I fell off it and it auto saved so every time I load the game I instantly die.

Thatís it? Iím seriously confused on this one. The twists towards the end of B and during C about the truth behind humanity and the state of the world were...mildly interesting but the C/D/E endings are hyped as this amazing thing that you just HAVE to see and itís just a considerably less impactful, anime ass version of something Nier 1 already did 1000x better.

And all the talk about how Platinum made ďgoodĒ Nier gameplay. Nope, still trash and so much more of it. Hacking mini game overload on the back end of the game and that shit sucked.

What a disappointment. Even the use of Nier 1 characters sucked. Gamers have trash ass taste.

Tried Crackdown 3, cause why not? It plays just like what I remember of the first Crackdown. Listlessly grabbed some agility orbs, cleared a handful objectives on the map... And that's all I have to say about it, because I already uninstalled it.

What is up with games not having separate language options? I had to switch my OS to English just to hear Terry Crews' dulcet tones.

structurally the ending in Nier 2 is a little better, but doesn't have the characters to back it up. Would've been much better with a cast like Nier 1's, not those new lamos. The robots were interesting, but fuck the androids. Combat is fancier in Automata, but there's nothing else than that and the schmups. Nier 1 was Zelda-like, so the inferior combat didn't even matter that much. You had like dungeons, parts that were like Resident Evil, proper text adventure, etc. - and none of it was bad. Most other games suck when they change up genres, but Nier 1 is okay at worst and mostly great. It even got platforming controls right, which most games fuck up if it isn't their focus.

Picking back up the Kiseki series after finishing FC nearly a decade ago with Trails in the Sky SC and man does Turbo mode rule. I enjoyed FC but found the combat to be slower than Iíd like and the story to be a little slow going but being able to blaze through trash encounters has completely turned my experience around.

SC and 3rd have been on my backlog for forever now, but Iím a little hesitant to continue on to Cold Steel after given what Iíve seen of it. How do the Cold Steel games hold up to the Sky trilogy?

Played some Generation Zero with some friends and its interesting running out in the world to fight killer construction robots and getting phat loot.

Also a method of travel being a bicycle (with a postman "horn") just kills me for some reason.


Otherwise deep in the Destiny 2 mines dealing with this seasonal thing they are pushing plus shadowkeep.

I was curious about this, how's the gameplay loop, is it like Left4Dead or slower? Also, can you play in private matches?

I need a rest.

Play Red Dead Redemption 2 and unwind man, please

I downloaded Contra Rogue Corps since it's free this weekend. I thought it was a "traditional" contra in the sense it had levels and an ending

Turns out it's a twin-stick shooter with a series of sub-missions and has a diablo-esque grinding where you upgrade your gear, weapons, etc

I ain't got time for this shit lmao

Oh wow, that progression system sounds awful... whatever happened to linear levels? Especially in franchises with arcade origins like Contra?

References upon references. Iga-san... :uguu

Having to suck a regular monsters' soul to progress is pretty mean. Feels completly busted to use it, too. Like it's an optional path. Progression unlocks should always come from bosses. :hmph I wandered around the entire castle thinking I had missed a switch or and item or something (like earlier, with the golden armour).

The second stage of the last boss is just lame. Everything is easy to dodge, but if that weren't enough, the gravity flip power breaks that fight completely. Some demon lord this is...

Never found the recipe for regular spaghetti. Sorry, old lady. :I

It's fun. It's Pokemon.  The rabid fanbase always overreacts.

Yeh lets ignore legitimate complaints and the fact that it looks like an upressed 3ds game under the umbrella of "rabid fanbase"

Shit games can be fun.  :yeshrug
But yeah, hard to argue that the game looks incredibly low effort, especially with all the Pokemon clones made in a basement that look better.

It's a JRPG. I don't care.  Give me classic JRPG mechanics and I'm good. 

My favorite JRPG series of late is Etrian Odyssey and it's far from a looker. 

On the other hand, the Final Fantasy series has pushed graphical fidelity since FFVII and I only keep losing interest in them. 

My fave Pokemon game is Black and White. That's a game that is basically a Super NES game in terms of fidelity.  Pushing the graphical edge is not something I care for with this series.
