Played an hour or so of Medium, really pretty environments, even if on my 1060 it runs at 15 fps when in split screen (on medium settings, ah!).

The thing that bothers me is, as usual, the constant voice over/talking.
Are they so afraid of leaving moments of silence? Are they afraid of letting the audience interpret the inner workings of the character? I don't get it, it's so annoying.

Ive probably asked this before, but is Mass Effect Andromeda worth touching? I loved the original trilogy but have heard Andromeda is... flawed

I mean... it might tide you over until the next one, but it doesnt even come close to the original trilogy.

It's a Bloober game.

Their handling of PTSD in the Blair Witch was amazing.

I only played Layers of Fear, which was alright but got stale halfway through.
I know their stuff is usually considered mediocre.

I expected a visually focused studio like their's to have worked out facial animations a bit better, especially the eyes. But I suppose this explains why their prior games were first-person and had next to no NPCs.

Yo, the medium sucked ass. I got so bored half way through. I love how the game is pretty much a walking simulator with the guise of having some puzzles. Those puzzles end up being, something is stopping you from progressing in to this door. Go to the door beside it. Get something. Now you can progress through the door you were not able to progress through earlier.

I'm kinda surprised World of Horror is leaving since it hasn't really released (early access game). I wasn't sure how they'd handle early access stuff and just assumed it'd stay until the game is at least released in 1.0, but nope, so back on the steam wishlist it goes.

I dug World of Horror from the one episode I played, but after that figured I'll wait until the game is complete to play the rest.


Oh yeah and to add something to this page's discussion, glad to hear that Blooper continues to suck. I wish I could keep falling upward and even get Akira Yamaoka to write songs for my crappy art project too.

I loved the game but I pretty much played it like Myst or one of those old-school FMV games. While it's interactive, it's obviously not pushing you to master the controls or chase stats & loots, but it's hella fuckin' atmospheric the way it does things.

Of course if the story isn't for you, then the game isn't for you. I think that's why it got such polarizing review scores (from 3/10 to 9/10). Most of the time if you don't like the story in a game, maybe you'll stick it out because of the actual gameplay. That's what my friends that play anime-girl games tell me.

The story isn't the problem. It's more that their writing is absolute garbage.

If you write a story driven game, you can't have like 66% of your game be padding. Either cut the fat or hire better writers to make it fit within the story framework.

Oh yeah the majority of the game is a navel-gazing monologue. I could handle one game a year that's like that but I get why that gets annoying. Maybe it's because I haven't played a walking Sim for several years, but it still felt fresh enough for me and the game is short enough to not overstay its welcome.

got the 1390/1390 in Control. The Alan Wake DLC wasn't very good as Bebpo said. Very little in the way in of story and was just recycled levels from the base game. Obv was a teaser for Control 2/ potential AW crossover which I hope happens. The new weapon was very good and fun to use though!

Started Mass Effect Andromeda... lol. Characters look so goofy coming off Control. This is clearly lesser than the OT, but the environments look great and the music is good. Im just treating it as a generic spaceman game. Gotta be better than Deliver Us the Moon at least

I really enjoyed Andromeda when I played it. Not nearly as good as Mass Effect 1 - 3 but after the patching certainly playable. Just very unfinished and designed right before open world games got a glow up with the likes of Assassins Creed Origins, Witcher 3 and Zelda BOTW in terms of quests and exploration so it's more like one of those Ubisoft cross icons off your list kinda Open World with 2 or 3 different type of objectives and a lot of the same encounters outside of the quite meaty quests / side quests.

I'm getting kinda annoyed by MS splitting the releases between Cloud/Console/PC now. I really expected GamePass to be more unified across platforms.

I looked up these new game additions and what the heck that Ghost of a Tale mouse stealth game has really good graphics and basically looks like an Assassin's Creed game but you're a mouse.

How do games like these even get made. Never heard of it, looks like it has a decent budget, and it's a mouse stealth arpg.


Also is Falconeer actually good?

Ghost of a Tale had quite a bit of buzz some years ago, i played some hours of it in 2017 or '18. (i have it on Steam)
It's nothing like AC, it's a more classic linear stealth game, and it is indeed very pretty, but gets a bit boring tbh.

The guy that made it was an animator at Dreamworks, and i remember following the very early threads on it, on GAF, years ago.

Just finished The Medium, this game is a broken piece of shit. Multiple soft locks, weird colored pixels flying all over the place, characters in the split-screen segments MOVING IN THE WRONG DIRECTIONS AND GETTING STUCK, and the final cutscene wouldn’t even trigger after solving the puzzle. I lost over an hour to things not triggering / breaking and me not realizing it, so I just used a walkthrough to get through the last third of the game because I couldn’t trust the game to work properly.

Maybe I should stop playing 1.0 versions of games entirely.

The only bug (unless you consider stuttering a bug) I encountered on PC was the dry riverbed you have to climb out of. Climbing the ledge worked, but then I couldn't keep walking. Slid off to the side, then the prompt to climb didn't re-appear. Reloading the save didn't help. I had to reload the one before that and replay the last bit of Thomas' flashback.

I bet they didn't/couldn't test as thoroughly on consoles.

The game also wouldn’t survive sleep mode. If I put the Series X into sleep mode, turning it back on and choosing the game would boot it from scratch. Sometimes the QUICK RESUME logo would pop up and then take me to....the title menu. WTF.

BTW Quick Resume works perfectly on everything else so it’s not like I was blastin vape fumes into the fan

BTW I know exactly what the sparkly pixels are. When you are rendering shit in shaders and you’re outputting them at levels > 0-1, that’s going to affect your postprocess filter and activate the bloom effect. Somehow they are accidentally shitting out individual pixels with RGB values in the thousands and it’s basically making christmas lights

Fuck this game I guess

Same. Also during the conference room puzzle, I glitched it out because I tried doing it in three steps but the game makes you go back to the clipboard every time you find a seat number. If you don't do it in that order, you can't proceed forward and you have to reload the save. I think it's just a sloppy nested if tree.

The game is a unique experience for everyone.

So the ME:A multiplayer is basically the same as ME3 multi (awesome) but not as good (boo) as the game is generally jankier due to the auto-cover and jetpack BS :larry

Can still see myself sinking a few hours into this for some better gear for Singleplayer :larry

Playing on Insanity difficulty and it isnt too bad, just using the tried and true tactical cloak/sniper rifle combo

Dirt 5 is coming to game pass next week, which seems like an extra quick turn around, it only came out in November. Has anything ever hit gamepass this quick :thinking

I'm guessing it must have bombed hard :doge

I mean theres stuff that goes to Gamepass Day 1 but that is 1st party M$ shit or a moneyhatted indie. A full priced AAA game going to the 'pass that quick is rare

I doubt Dirt 5 was AAA.

Fps boost is sure gonna make playing old games on the service a lot better.

Holy shit, anime tits souls is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay worse than I expected.

I was expecting something polished like The Surge that basically played like Dark Souls but now with ANIME. I liked in the tutorial that you can change classes on the fly.

But the movement and combat feels fucking awful. Like some zero budget PS2 era game. And even the cutscenes are full of characters clipping through their clothes. It's like this game had zero budget. Which is weird because it seemed like a big game for Bandai Namco?

Couldn't take anymore after about 30 mins.


Also tried Wreckfest and it's fine, but I don't like that the damage effects the handling. Like in demolition derby right from the first hit now your car drives like shit the rest of the time? Definitely wasn't scratching the Destruction Derby/Twisted Metal/Burnout itch. Just felt like the Flatout racers with better debris and destruction derbys.

Code Vein? I played about the first two hours of it. It's painfully average which is worse than it straight up being trash. At least trash can be fun.

It's why I like gamepass. When I drop a game I don't feel bad since it's not part of my backlog anyways.

Wreckfest makes feel like the ugliest guy at an orgy.
I keep wandering in circles trying to hit someone, but everybody keeps avoiding me. :fbm
