I haven't decided yet if I want to dive back into DQ 8 or not.  Got a couple long flights coming up, so...maybe

That's too bad, Bull...

Anyway, I played quite a bit this weekend and really enjoy it.  I can see that it definitely doesn't have as much of the strategic appeal of Clash Royale.  I guess that may be part of the appeal for me; it's definitely more of a MOBA-lite gaming feel and more action oriented. 

I do admit that the Star Wars theme certainly adds to the appeal.  Having Princess Leia run around blasting the crap out of Boba Fett and Darth Vader is just the right antidote to feeling sad about Carrie Fisher.  The graphics and sound effects are all fantastic, and they've chosen an interesting mix of characters and unit types.

Thus far they have been pretty generous with card packs and rewards, free ones come at regular intervals and like Clash, you win packs based on your ranking which take time to open.  I like that they have a series of "quests/tasks" that give little rewards along the way, and once you finish a set of them you get a free pick of a "Legendary" character.  Helps to mitigate the randomness of just buying card packs.

I only got to play a little of this so far, but I liked a lot of what I played.  Unfortunately it did make me a bit nauseous/motion sick after.  I tried enabling the crosshair and I turned on the "anti-motion sick" switch (no idea what that does but cool that there is one).  I think I need to slow down the mouse look some more.  It's been a while since an FPS got me dizzy, I'm not sure why this one in particular had any effect, it could be because I'm still getting over a cold.

My only complaint so far was that in the match i joined, they threw me in at the end and it was a pretty high level group fighting a boss.  I died in about a minute and spent the rest of the time watching.  Surprised there isn't any kind of respond or method to bring players back?  I went back and played some more solo which was still pretty fun.  I can imagine if I got the right video settings and into a more suitable group it could be a lot of fun.

Been playing lots of Soccer Stars over this past weekend.  It's a combination of shuffleboard, curling, and soccer, and is a lot of fun.  I'm terrible at it, but playing against others is really fun.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why I can't get into the Uncharted games.  I like the formula (thought the new TR games were great, for example), but the UC games just do nothing for me at all.  All the right pieces are there:  incredible visuals, great VO work, big epic story, etc, but I'm just left cold every time I play them.  Got up to Chapter 7 in UC4 last night, and realized I just have no desire to continue.  It's really weird.

I think the biggest issue is that I simply don't like Nathan Drake as a character.  He's smarmy, he's kind of a jerk, and I just find him very unlikable overall.  I find myself rooting for his magnetic fingers to fail every time he makes a ridiculous jump.  The whole "modern Indiana Jones" thing just doesn't do much for me either, although it didn't bother me at all with Tomb Raider.  So strange...

if i had more leisure time, i'd probably get more into reading the 1960's Marvel comics reprints - i really like the old Fantasic Four stories.)

I enjoyed them in the 1960s when all I had was leisure time, as is every kid's birthright. Batman, Spiderman, and F4 were favorites. Never got into the Avengers or Superman very much. I guess I outgrew comics by 1970 or so.

I'm lukewarm to superhero movies, yet I've seen more than half of the ones on ATB's list. All on DVD, a year or two after release. I'm the opposite of EngineNo9 in that I find the fight scenes boring (and frequently too dark and frantic to follow) and am more interested in the story in between the fights.

though the netflix series haven't had any direct connection plot wise as of yet, the tv show did and there are small things around Winter Soldier that might make more sense if you were watching the show as well just fyi.  (though season one is kinda lame imo)

This looks like fun, is BJ the only person who played it all this time?
I think that's always been par for the course for any threads I post a lot in.  icon_smile SWTOR in 2011 was maybe an exception.  icon_biggrin

I think like any horde shooter, you have to enjoy repetition even if the game imho does a great job of always throwing mixes at you from different directions, and the higher difficulty levels toss different enemy behaviors at you. If you don't dig repetition or need a story, etc., it's the wrong game.

I certainly love the weapons feel, though the Beserker's bobbing melee weapons feel isn't my cup of tea.

This did launch on PS4 in November, but I think for better or worse it's perceived more as a PC only title.

If there's tactics, it's -- and I had to read the various KF2 Wikis to understand this -- in understanding the types of Zed your particular Perk's weapons are best directed at. If you can get a 6 person group going with six different perks, then it's interesting to watch them work together.

As I blathered, I don't make any new Steam friends playing this, as opposed to Helldivers where probably 80% of the folks on my friends list are out of playing that. Most games people just can't wait to leave when it's over. I'm not sure why that is.
