I highly, highly recommend Bloons TD6.

Yes, the art/theme is ridiculous, and not necessarily in a good way. It's monkeys popping balloons. Sometimes in helicopters, sometimes as ninjas, sometimes as aircraft carriers launching more monkeys in jets.

But the game is remarkably deep, with tons of features, and the developers are polishing constantly. There's a very, very healthy community adapting strategies to their changes, too.

I play on the phone, though it's also for the PC. Unsure the price, and while it has microtransactions, I've never once wanted one other than the "double cash" cheat, which is I think $1.99 and makes you feel like you're a genius, but can also make things too easy (it can't be used in the hardest modes.) Otherwise, I believe you can unlock (and fairly/quickly) anything you can buy, and it's all designed around making things easier rather than anything you feel you're missing out on, and those things to make it easier aren't available on harder difficulties.

edit - $9.99 on Steam with almost 92,000 reviews, "overwhelmingly positive." But yeah, I get that some will be so repulsed by the theme that they can't get into the depth behind it.
I bought Bloons TD 6 on your rec. Sorely disappointed. Play my first game, 100 levels. Get to level 99, nothing is stopping me, although I had some close calls. Then on level 99, 100 lead balloons. Instant death. Nothing before that prepares you for that level of attack. I have to start back at level 1. After losing, the game pops up: "To keep playing, pay $5." Fuck that noise. A game intentionally designed to get you to pay for MTs, even on PC.

From memory there's no need to continue, it's endless anyway isn't it?

Just keep playing different maps, unlocking different things, trying different tactics, leveling up etc.

I bought TD6 for like $1 on sale (and never spent a dime more) and got 150 hours out of it (in coop). So i sure can't complain about value for money

I agree with Beamer, awesome game IMO.

If you liked Orcs Must Die in co-op, you should check out the original Dungeon Defenders - much more depth and replayability (assuming you can put up with the old graphics and UI). Though DD2 was horrible, and DD Awakened was merely passable.

That said, really enjoyed OMD1 and 2, but i remember the recent one turned me off.

Still, looking forward to checking this out.

Pretty much a “you’re doing it wrong, you should be doing this”. Duh

Yeah, capping a 3090 to 60fps... lol

Maybe something a little more reasonable - say (a few FPS below) your monitors refresh rate?!

Souls isn't ultra difficult. Something difficult requires mastery of precise timing and quick reactions (like arcade fighters). Souls games are actually fairly slow and only require knowledge of the game, world and mechanics to play well. The combat is more thoughtful than anything. Its reputation as a "hard" game comes more from the fact you can actually lose progress (XP/money, at least) if you die repeatedly.

Too many games now have basically no fail states; how anyone gets enjoyment from playing something you can literally beat with your eyes closed is beyond me. I think much of the popularity of battle royale games can be attributed to the fact that victory is particularly rewarding given the odds one is up against.

100% agree on all points.

I'm older, and still enjoy competitive games... and actually still do rather well! Even in DOTA 2 and Fortnite. Not a big fan of the super twitchy games anymore though, with a 0.1 second TTK.

I actually find single player games bore more more these days, i'd rather just watch TV for the "story". Throw in some co-op though and i'm down, thus i'm really hoping Elden Ring has proper co-op, not the crap we saw in Dark Soles.

I'm glad this game is doing so well, but I do feel like it's overrated. I know I'm in the microscopic minority in that opinion, but I don't get people's love of this game, it's literally chopping trees and picking up rocks, version 35 or so.

Shine on though, you crazy diamonds!

Same. I'm enjoying it, but with all the hype i expected to be blown away....

I actually enjoyed The Forest and Green Hell (again, both in coop) more.

It's well deserved. Valheim is a great little game. It brings me back to my days in Ultima Online of all things, with a super open-world layout and game play focused on discovery (both of new lands and of new ways to create things).

It's just too bad it looks that old. At least with games like Conan Exiles it actually looks great. A decade ago I would have been in like Flynn on this, now, not so much.

Yes, Conan looks great and had LOTS of potential but instead of the dev's actually adding content and improving their game, all they do is add new skins and DLC's.

On the other hand Valheim is going the opposite route... adding more CONTENT, depth, gameplay improvements and meaningful changes.

I know which one i'll take.

I wish they'd improve the walking/running animation though, that's about my only real gripe around 'graphics' TBH.

Outriders was... ok. Way too easy, bosses were piss weak, very linear, and there needs to be an option to skip ALL cut-scenes.

Some of the weapons and gear seemed interesting, but the skills trees didn't seem to offer anything too drastic or gameplay changing. Hopefully the class abilities on level up combined with legendary gear / mods end up being the games draw card.

Will be waiting to see how the final game reviews but probably just another 'buy on heavy discount' for me.

I really enjoyed rust (for a while at least), but the offline raiding and HORRIBLE community killed it for me. Not to mention the lack of working anticheat and server admins that were worse than actual cheaters.

Good to see it doing well though.

If i was a teenager again i'd probably likely be playing it and nothing else.

Really wish these games had coop for the main campaign. Im happy to let my coop friend control the narrative, I just want to be a sidekick that helps tear up the city.

Same here. I don't know why, but i can't play single player games anymore... i just tune out and go and do something else.

Playing the same game with a friend or family member in co-op is a whole different story though.

I know they've mentioned multiplayer and even co-op as a possibility after the first couple of DLC's, so maybe in 2030 we will be set.

Don’t Just Survive, Thrive!: We’ve removed all negative effects from Hunger and Thirst. Instead, you’ll receive buffs that increase based on how well fed and hydrated you are.
Mixed feelings.....but this is overall probably a good thing. It could be challenging at lower levels to handle food without perks or when you had some kind of disease.

I quite like the mechanic in actual survival games, but in Fallout it just felt like a chore... but not as bad as the inventory/space limit and equipment that constantly breaks.

So it's a good first step but they still have a long way to go. Wayyyyyy too much downtime, and the below average combat mechanics and repetitive MMO style missions don't even begin to offset this.

I only picked it up a few weeks ago on sale, and my takeaway thoughts are -

The game brought the worse elements of the MMO genre (generic, bland quests) and survival genre (never ending thirst, hunger, sickness) and combined them with one of the worst UI's ever seen on PC. Add to that a limited storage space and the endless need to collect thousands of different items to be able to repair your gear and weapons that break after every second fight and you are left with a game that feels more like a second job. Oh, and the combat system (especially the gunplay) was below average at best.

It was a decent time sink during this crazy period, but that's about the only real praise i can give it.

I very nearly purchased Hunt a few months ago... it looks interesting enough from gameplay videos. DLC turned me off, though.

They often have free weekends - id suggest you try it there first. My experience was: slow gameplay, lots of PVE missions/tracking, fight boss, get insta killed by max level dudes camping on a rooftop with a full kit of weapons i could only dream of. Rinse and repeat.

But maybe the playerbase in Oceania isn't high enough to put new players against new players so your experience may vary.

Though I'd much rather player BR games where there's a much more level playing field.

So it's 500$. Yeah, if AMD can match that performance and undercut it by say 50$ it's game over man, game over!

And if the bitboys can release glaze3d with twice the performance for half the price it's really game over, unless intel releases larrabbee with thrice the performance for a third the price!

Not sure what the reference is, but you're making it seem like it's going to be impossible for AMD to compete with Nvidia while at the same time making fun of me? On another note I just noticed that the 3070 features GDDR6 memory, and not the high speed 6x of the 3080.

I'm just laughing at the two ifs. IF they can match and IF they underprice THEN NVIDIA is in trouble.
Two "ifs" kind of make me laugh, because at the most simple case, it's one of 4 scenarios.

And IF they can do it without making a card that sounds like a jet engine taking off, and IF they can do without making a card that's secondary function is a furnace... then yes, NVIDIA is in some serious trouble!

I'm rooting for AMD though, but their cards usually have some serious drawbacks.

AMD's newer Ryzen's are awesome though, so hopefully they can finally work the same magic on their GPU department.

I worked for Apple for years near the start of the decade, leaving as I saw what Tim Cook was doing to the company. Don't get me wrong, Apple under Steve was just as overpriced, but it was good tech. Tim has shifted Apple into producing shitty tech that is incrementally 'NEW' like a Madden or COD game, is designed to fail, is designed to be unrepairable/upgradeable, and is farmed out to the lowest cost slave labor possible.

All of the people who buy Apple need to realize that by using them they are:

- Promoting waste because the machines are designed to fail.
- Buying products from a company that exploits modern day slavery like a plantation owner back in the day.



But...but..... I don't care about that, I just want the latest fashion accessory! And you can't put a price on looking cool
