wtf are you playing... - Page 176

post #8751 of 10631

Because I am too cheap to spring for Far Cry 4 or Primal at their present prices, I am playing Wolfenstein again.

post #8752 of 10631

Wolfenstein > Far Cry 4.

 

Primal though...I dunno. Bird uav + bee bombs = hard to beat.

post #8753 of 10631
I was really good at Castlevania 2. It has a reputation as being one of the hardest in the series, but I think it's the only one I've ever beat.

Decided to give Evolve Stage 2 a go on account of it being free.

 

I never played the original so I have no idea of the changes made to the new version but it's fun! I love the whole idea behind the game and it definitely feels like you're actually hunting the monster. Haven't played too much of the monster but the bit I did was super intriguing.  

 

My only concern is traits (in-game bonuses that have quite an effect on the game) having to be bought with the in-game currency. Now, at this moment you can't buy the in-game currency with real money but I can totally see that being something they implement down the road. Which will turn it into a total pay-to-win clusterfuck.

 

But as it stands...if you were ever curious about Evolve and it's neat concept now's as good a time as any to try it out.

There's a game on Steam called Moirai. It's completely free, takes about a minute to download, and about five minutes to play but has a really interesting gimmick that I won't spoil here. If you've never played it, don't read anything about it and give it a play.

post #8757 of 10631
I didn't play myself but I watched a play video and it's definitely fascinating.

I got my result email through about ten minutes ago and discovered that I didn't make it out of the cave, and that the next player killed me. As the email said, "karma is alive and well" because I did the exact same thing to the player I encountered (although, to be fair, his responses to the questions were REALLY creepy.)
 

 

Simple, but very interesting.

Well, I've made it through the intro and training stuff in Dragon's Dogma, and it's actually not terrible. Still haven't got the knack of climbing onto the the large enemies, but that hasn't stopped me from killing them. The only thing that concerns me is whether or not juggling your companions is going to be a chore.

 

I got stuck in the new Hitman because a target I was observing wouldn't move to his next position. I'll try again later. Should have quicksave.

 

Still going full bore on Blood & Wine in Witcher 3, sidequests sidequests sidequests.

 

House of the Dying Sun has been fun, but I need to plug in my HOTAS for full enjoyment, methinks.

 

And I even ventured out a bit in Fallout 4. Don't know why it's not grabbing me like previous entries, but it's nice to know it's sitting there, waiting for me.

The hanging on thing in Dragon's Dogma gets easier with time, juggling when to grab and let go can actually become pretty fun once you get used to some of the monsters rhythms. They can toss you up, you let go, get a hit in and then grab back on as you fall. Good shit. Just remember once the flying stuff takes off don't try to hang on the entire time or go up in the air, it'll end poorly for you.

 

With your companions go more for spells you find useful or fill in a role you don't have covered. I typically avoid magic and have my tank or ranger main, tank or ranger pawn and then two magic pawns. Did you realize that spells can be synchronized to cast faster/stronger versions yet?

 

I was wondering whether you bit on House of the Dying Sun or not. I really love the vibe of that game, it's not a soothing space experience like Elite Dangerous but damn it's fun.

 

You modding Fallout 4?

 

So, I know Mongy bought it..anyone else get in on We Happy Few early access? I keep looking but I don't have many Early Access purchases that have gotten out of Early Access, which is a shame but it seems like a pit to get into when I have so much finished stuff I could be playing.

 

I have the same issue with Ghost of a Tale. I really, really want to be that little mouse because it looks baller af but again, early access and I could just buy Quadrilateral Cowboy and be a low tech hacker instead.

Was going to - as I've been waiting for this game for a while now - but stopped after seeing Jim Sterling's video yesterday. The guy voiced a character in the game and backed it on Kickstarter, so I'm going to accept his criticisms of the game as it currently stands, and his recommendation that it's best to wait until closer to release. There's just too much reliance on RNG elements in its current form and, as you'd expect from an Early Access title, the game is only about half done. 

post #8763 of 10631

As a rule, I try and stay away from Early Access titles. The potential risk of burning out on a game before it's even released is too great for me.

 

I've got No Man's Sky, Telltale Batman and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided all coming out in the next month. I'm good with waiting on We Happy Few until it's done.

Because I'm a fucking sociopath monster....I spared the guy before me, didn't think much on his answers. I know a killer when I see one, you're free to go kill other people.

After killing the lady I went full on Reaver with my answers. I'm sure I'm dead.

Doom - Finished it last week. Not sure where it would rank in the year end, but it was great. I thought I was ocd with my playthrough but not ocd enough, missed a ton of shit. Probably too lazy to mop up the rest for those useless steam cheevos. That one boss with the pattern based attacks, "that's adorable, but I cleared Furi and this is baby mode. Getgud demon boss thing".

Zero Escape Virtues Last Save Corruption - Jesus hell, what a waste of time. Ebayed the trilogy if shit like this made it passed qa.

Kirby's Robot 3DS thing - Digging this just as much as the last Kirby 3ds game.

Star Wars Battlefront PC - Only way to enjoy the game proper is with bots with how lame the online population is.

Not A Hero/Assault Cactus - Quick pick up and play fun shit on the ps4. Why can't Broforce be as polished as these dammit?

Videoball - I kind of hate this. At times it feels clumsy and aggravating, it gets under my skin like Bejewelled. Meh, deleted it after a night of playing with friends. We moved back to Rocket League and Overwatch.

On my plate: Everything. Quadrilateral Cowboy, Death Road to Canada, Fru, Human Fall Flat, Headlander, Song of the Deep, and We Happy Few.

Edited to add:

We Happy Few - It's kinda polished and functional in its current state. That opening office bit was fun to explore around in. But the open world feels almost as barren as Homefront Revolution, and currently not that fun. I had my fill. I'll uninstall it and revisit once it officially releases.

Monster Hunter Generations on 3DS has its claws in me.  Already somehow managed to put in 22+ hours.  These games are the type where if they do grab you you can lose lots of time to them without feeling like you've accomplished much.  Hmmmm...  I think the way that reads comes off more negative than I mean it.  I mean it more in a good way, kind of like "I've been playing this for so long already and have tons more to do!  I can't wait!."  Yeah, I think that's a bit better.

 

It is in some ways the most accessible one yet while also adding more layers of depth if you seek it out.  Good stuff.

post #8766 of 10631

Just bought 2 MSI Geforce GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G graphics cards, a MSI High Density 2 way SLi bridge (30 fucking dollars????)  and a 27 inch ASUS ROG Swift. Happy half birthday to me. 

 

Hopefully this means I'm able to get about 50FPS in Ark now.

post #8767 of 10631

As previously mentioned, Total War Warhammer is exactly what I wanted it to be, with all the optimization problems Creative Assembly have with every one of these things. Still, that's been really fun when battles aren't melting my graphics card. Grabbed a cheap copy of Elder Scrolls Online and sank a goo 25 hours or so into that. Not bad, pretty fun simply because I played it like a straight single player Elder Scrolls game and it felt like a loose sequel to Oblivion. I'll go back to that but ESO got me curious to finally give SWTOR a go and that game is a shit-tonne of fun for this old Star Wars/Bioware geek. So now I'm going to spend the next month losing myself to that.

Should have saved that for two New Titan X's launching next Tuesday. 1080's, meh that's some peasant shit right there. /s

I always wonder how Ark runs on xbox ones, are they making more of an effort to optimize the game for the console or is it a god damned slide show.

You literally just made me cry.

Also, a pal of mine plays Ark on the XBone and he says it runs quite well. The joys of having fixed hardware. Plus, I'm sure it's not 1080p.

Nothing better than powering up EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 4.1 and wading through hordes of giant insects with my Fencer on a Saturday morning.  *sniff* It's so beautiful.

 

EDF! EDF! EDF!

Life Is Strange. Do the consequences make literal sense, like "piss off this guy and he won't support you in future" or is it "open a window to save a bird and get eaten by cannibal rapists?"
post #8772 of 10631

There's a supporting character or two who will have larger or smaller roles depending on certain parts, but all roads lead to the same binary choice at the end, like in Mass Effect 3. Still, it's a great adventure game, one of the best in recent years.

post #8773 of 10631

I've been playing the first TMNT game for the NES off and on all week.  The sewer jump I never made as a kid, 27 years and hundreds of attempts later, I can now make it a good 75% of the time.  So I finally beat that area of the game and moved into the part I'd only ever watched my brother play.  I tried keeping it together, but mistakes started piling up.  After losing a couple of turtles in lava (at an airport?), I turned off the NES.  Making that sewer jump was all I needed.  Maybe in another 27 years, I'll have a go at the airport level.

 

Uncharted 4 arrived from Amazon yesterday.  So I either continue my retro-kick and make a go at TMNT2 or Simon's Quest or jump in on Uncharted 4.

post #8774 of 10631

Oh man, fuck that NES TMNT game. Fuck it straight to hell.

You must be thinking of the swimming under the dam and disarming the bombs level.

Yeah that shit was impossible..
post #8776 of 10631

Whoever designed that game was a masochist. That's the only explanation.

post #8777 of 10631

AssCreed Syndicate is around $25 on GMG. Yay or nay? The last one I enjoyed was Black Flag and I bought Rogue but haven't finished it, regale me with stories of assassination or how terribly horrible it is?

PC Port has crash issues. Only thing that kept me from grabbing it during the steam sales. I liked it on the ps4, ran okay. The soundtrack is okay but gets repetitive when you start knocking off events. Story is not terrible. Evie is a cool character and should have been about her instead of doing a split narrative with the douche brother. I liked it? I think I liked it. It's not shit like AssCreed Vita or AssCreed 3, so it has that going for it.

Love the Monster Hunter Games and really wish they would port the newest one to PS4 here in the US of A.  So annoying. It's huge in Japan and has more than a decent following here.

Rogue Legacy - Finished this on PS4. I really hope they're working on a sequel. Just a fun timesink.

Tembo The Motherfucking Elephant of Doom - This should be adapted into a movie, a first person sequel from that guy who made Hardcore Henry.

Clock Simulator - Maddening torture. Make it stop. I think Jesse Eisenberg used this to get into character for Batman\/Superman; part of my battered psyche is leaking incoherent thoughts to whoever will listen, the other wants to burn the whole world down and snap the necks of small animals, whichever comes first.

Team Fortress 2 - Being a medic here just isn't as fun as it is with Mercy in Overwatch. Started running around burning everyone as the pyro.

Firewatch - Tried choosing different dialog options, handed the controller to the wife and let her play fresh instead.

Little Inferno - Stuff that burns is cool.

The Flame and the Flood - My next rogue lite timesink. Digging the art design and presentation. Curious to see if this will keep its hooks in me like Gungeon and Legacy.

Xbone S 2TB is mine, a work freebie benefit for showing up on the Fourth to do emergency OT. A smidge bigger than my ps4 (which I'm too lazy to remove from its current cabinet spot to take comparison photos, go google that shit yourselves. It's quiet and hasn't sacrificed thermals to jet engine noise levels. Once I redownload all my rock band stuff I'll throw in Revenant and Fury Road 4k.
post #8781 of 10631
After a marathon few months, I just finished the Uncharted series, parts 1 through 4, today. Was generally pretty good, if not repetitive played back to back. I feel like I just finished watching a fleshed out, multiparty film series with characters I had developed a lot of enjoyment from.

GameFAQs has been around since '96, thankfully. The game came out in '98. I definitely needed it to get through this one.

 

I think my first roadblock was in the woods, then the one at the beach later was a real bitch.

post #8787 of 10631

Oh the fuckin' woods. That whole section was a nightmare. 

post #8788 of 10631
Yeah, I'd have just plain given up at those woods without gamefaqs.
post #8789 of 10631

Completly hooked on Xenoblade Chronicles X.

Love the setting and battle system, and the whole sci-fi/jrpg is right up my alley, since I loved Xenogears and Xenosaga; Im absolutely stunned by the world and creature desing, which actually feels like an alien ecosystem to explore and research.

And let me say that this game has a feature all RPG's should have: The ability to use armor/equipment as both direct equipment AND outfit; being able to equip better armor and accesories while still keeping the characters looking the way I liked them too is fantastic (mainly because most party NPC's have great clothing/looks already, and losing that for better stats seems weird).*

 

*Yes, it has the drawback that I've seen PC characters when playing online fighting monsters wearing swimming suits, but nothing is perfect.

post #8790 of 10631

Bit the bullet on the Season Pass for Telltale's BATMAN series because, well, these guys have more than earned my money time after time with their games. Looking forward to playing the non-murdering Batman tomorrow!

post #8791 of 10631

I've heard the PC version of Batman is pretty rough. The new visual effects they duct taped on to the old Telltale engine are giving people some bad performance.

That series is the best time I've ever had playing video games. Nothing's come close since. Even the new one, which I'm sure I'll play to exhaustion, will be fundamentally lacking my Shepherd.

Omega's nice, but the Leviathan and Shore Leave missions are some of the best Mass Effect content ever. Maybe the best.
post #8799 of 10631

I just started the Leviathan DLC and am super intrigued. It's got a VERY Lovecraftian vibe to it and for a game where the bad guys are literal robot Lovecraft monsters that is saying something.
