Should be able to finish off first run through of Nioh this weekend, which btw is great.

They removed weapon degradation due to feedback on the alpha.

Nioh, and the For Honor beta.

Ron B. told me playing this on VR would make me "vomit out my eyeballs."  saywhat I'm still trying to get a visual on that.  icon_lol

Guess it would wrest the motion sickness award from Dead Island, which made me sick in 30 seconds, and that was before Steam instituted the refund policy.  icon_redface

Doubt I could stomach this, it's interesting to read about it though. My lone Resident Evil purchase was "Resident Evil 5/Biohazard 5" in 2011.

The demo had issues but they seem to have adjusted for the full release, I don't see a lot of reports of nausea and many people are playing the entire game in VR.

Yeah it's pretty good. I'm playing it on the TV even though I have VR. I've tested out the VR and that seems well implemented, and it's getting really good VR reviews, but for a game like this I want to go through on the TV so I can appreciate the higher quality visuals and more importantly learn where the jump scares are before tackling it in VR. I'll probably play at least the earl parts of the game in VR once I've finished the game.

Been playing it. I like it a lot but it can be really difficult. Guards are often overwatching the same areas. I'm a little stuck at the end of chapter 3 right now.

Here, watch this and feel really bad at the game.

I just beat level 4, each level takes me at least an hour or so far.

10  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist - 12/9/16 Edition on: December 09, 2016, 06:20:05 PM
Lots of Let it Die and Shadow Tactics, maybe squeeze in a few HotS games too.

I grabbed Shadow Tactics, and have also been playing a lot of Let it Die which I got over the weekend. The PSVR Star Wars mission really makes me want a full on X-Wing VR game too.

This is a weird game. It's out now on PS4. It's a free to play singleplayer roguelite with online hooks into other players games. It's 3rd person, and plays roughly like Dark Souls, though a fair bit clunkier. You wander up this tower collecting items and fighting NPCs, looking for gear etc to make it higher and higher. When you die your corpse becomes a Hater, and it wanders the world until you defeat it. Defeated Haters go into your freezer, and then can be sent out into other players worlds where they earn you money. It also looks like you can raid other players worlds to fight their NPCs and steal money from them.

Actually no, we didn't as Clinton won the popular vote. Unfortunately that's now how our system is built.

With the friendly fire and all the ways to die, there's just not really any other co-op games like it. FYI I here it's set to be one of the titles to get a PS4Pro patch.
17  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Star Control: Origins on: October 20, 2016, 07:02:57 PM
Yeah, I'm generally not a fan of Stardock, and we've already had a SC sequel from someone other than the SC2 team and that game wasn't great, so I'm really not expecting much from this title unfortunately, even though SC2 is one of my all time favorites.  I'll hold out hope for the original creators to put an Ur-Quan universe sequel together at some point.

Does anyone still consider “open world” to be a good thing? 

Surely you jest.

There have been a lot of games that would have been better off with a tighter more focused experience. I think the Batman's are a good example where the first game was by far the strongest, in large part due to its more limited geographic scope.
20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Combat Racing Games on: September 21, 2016, 10:27:17 PM
It's in early access, but check out GRIP on steam, it's basically a Rollcage clone.

21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rive on: September 14, 2016, 02:37:47 PM
This is out now for PS4 and Steam and it's really good. It's sort of a run&gun like Contra, with some shmup parts. Mechanically it's really solid. It can get pretty hard at points, but the checkpointing is very generous so far. There's a story, and its jokes are maybe a little too meta and knowing but it doesn't detract from what is a really polished and excellent game.

Finally picked up Uncharted 2 again after a month or two off and managed to finish it tonight. While it has its moments and is definitely better than part 1, I'm going to express what may be an unpopular opinion and say I'm just not feeling it with this series. I'm going to play through Uncharted 3 and then may or may not pick up part 4.

I realize you probably have the collection, but 3 is not the one to play over 4.

Alright, got the Mark of Conqueror and Mark of the Strong in the Nioh beta. Very much looking forward to the full release, this is like a mashup of Demon's Souls and Ninja Gaiden. There's a lot of depth to the combat here too once you start unlocking weapon skills.

I keep feeling like I should like these guys more than I do.  All the individual pieces are there, but it just never comes together to be something I really enjoy.  Weird.



I'm like that with Youth Code. Recorded I find them just kind of there, and I really didn't enjoy them live when they opened for FLA and Skinny Puppy. But they seem like a band I *should* like.

I had this on wishlist and then removed it. Certainly the updates EngineNo9 described sound really promising. Maybe some day it's something I'll look into.

I recently decided that even though I've enjoyed some Difficult games like Hyper Light Drifter, for the most part, I'm not one of the Dark Souls Crowd. I don't really like to have my face rubbed in a game's difficulty level like a puppy's face in his poop. I returned a side-scroller Salt & Sanctuary on Steam a while back because literally I couldn't get past the first boss 10 minutes into the game.

I don't know if Necropolis is like that. I just am now actively staying away from Steam games tagged as Difficult. Decided to embrace my inner wimpness.  icon_smile

I thought Hyper Light Drifter was more difficult than the Souls games or Salt & Sanctuary, especially at launch where it had a bunch of finicky issues with the small window on invulnerability frames, enemy combo recovery speeds, or the length of time it took to use a healing item. Maybe you played it after the various balance patches, I don't know how much easier those ended up making it.

Fuck that shit about PS4 getting a 'timed exclusive'. It's CLEARLY that, and not the bullshit stated by the founder:

Quote
In a subsequent tweet, he provided a bit of explanation as to why the date changed. He wrote, "We think a global release is best for everyone on PC. Retail forces us to be staggered on PS4."

Sorry, but a lot of people buy digital nowadays (especially PC). Don't tout this 'global release' bullcrap in this day and age. Also, (pissed off) PC purchaser here.

It's 3 days, you're out of your mind. If it was 3 months you might be correct or have a reason to be pissed off, as it is you're coming off as the typical entitled PC asshole.

If you enjoy ultra-gory horror comedy and have even a passing interest in metal, be sure to check out Deathgasm. It's a Shaun of the Dead'ish style spoof where a group of New Zealand metalheads play a black metal song that summons the devil, and carnage - lots and lots lots of carnage - ensues. It's alternately charming, hilarious, and utterly grotesque.

Probably helped that I could name every song on the soundtrack, but I'm guessing that isn't a prerequisite for enjoying it.

Did you watch Todd and the Book of Pure Evil?

Waiting on reviews for Necropolis: A Diabolical Dungeon Delve.  I'm a fan of Harebrained Studios and typically these type of games don't appeal to me but I like the art style and the humor of the game.

Art style and concept look really good, just wondering if it will be too frustrating for me.  I don't mind perma-death as long as some progress is made each run, and it sounds like that's the case in the description.  But hard to say if that will be how it actually plays out.

Isn't this basically trying to be a roguelike Souls game?

Where are you, ATB? You've been delinquent in your posting duties! Forums seem especially dead these days and I more than admit to being a part of the problem. I'm sure there's a more recent thread than this but I couldn't find it. What did surprise me is that this thread was made back in 2006! Have the troubles really been going on for as long as all that? I thought 2006 was the glory days. I figured that things took a downturn in the past couple of years. I'm still around but I don't post as much as I used to on any forum but I do spend most of my browsing time on the QT3 and Broken Forum forums and a little bit but not too much on OO.  What's everyone else doing these days?

I'm mostly over at BF, QT3 as well, along with NeoGAF.

I played about an hour of it yesterday.  It definitely feels like Limbo to me.  It is well made but I havenít been blown away yet.  Still want to play more though.

I haven't picked it up yet, but everything I've heard has said that the first half is very Limbo-esque and then there are a lot of revelations in the second half.  Still not sure if it's for me, but I'd like to try it at some point.

I'd say it's far more than half that is Limbo-esque. It has a hell of a final act though, but that's maybe 30 minutes of the game. Overall it was quite good but at the same time I think reviewers have over rated it.
