It was cool that they released an updated version of Borderlands 2. I never got too far in that game so I can keep playing B2 and spend my money on Greedfall if that's any good. I guess if you played tons of Borderlands 2 over and over again it might be worth buying B3...

News Comments > Get Assassin's Creed Odyssey Fields of Elysium for Free
14. Re: Get Assassin's Creed Odyssey Fields of Elysium for Free Aug 28, 2019, 05:57 heroin
 
Odyssey took me until @ level 25 to really get into it. But, once that happened, the amount of time I was spending on the game went from 30-1 hour intervals to 3-5 hour intervals... I'm still playing the game and it's DLCs. One of my favorite games (along with Origins, but although I like Egypt more as a subject, I think Odyssey is a much better game) in the last few years.

News Comments > World of Warcraft Classic Launches
31. Re: World of Warcraft Classic Launches Aug 27, 2019, 12:25 heroin
 
I really liked AssCreed Odyssey. That's been about the only game I've sunk a lot of time into. One of the great things they did in that game was get rid of quest markers (to a degree), so one would have to follow directions & explore to find the objective. And the world in Odyssey is just crazy beautiful.

In some ways Odyssey reminded me of old WoW. Never would have thought I'd like to go back to WoW Classic but it's great. No quest markers, slower-pace, better ambiance than the newer stuff, the world is unified (layered I suppose but more unified than being spread out amongst 7 expansions). Sure, it's a time-sink but this 15 year older version is also better than most games being developed these days in my opinion

It's a nightmare of overcrowding. One server was like 10k in queue, rolled a toon on a "normal" server with 2k in queue. When I got in there it was madness, I was lucky I rolled a rogue so I could hit mobs first without delay. 1 hour in and some quests literally have 50 people waiting in single-file lines to finish certain quests. Had to take a screenshot of that.

I wish it has an easy mode for just killin' and slashin'. Some of the rolls I've been on were too hard before I even saw a boss...

Oh well, Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is scratching this itch that no other space game has, for me, since Privateer.

Been playing the re-mastered version a bit over the past month and surprisingly was still a lot of fun to play and the new high-res graphics/textures looked great. Will definitely pick this up.

So glad Larian got it. Been replaying DOS2 with a friend in co-op and besides for the fact that he only wants to play one character and I end up playing the rest of em... such a fantastic game. I just hope they can make it a bit more sprawled out to be a BG game. DOS2 is great because it's like one puzzle after the other but for BG it should focus on immersion, dialogue trees, world-building and some exploring w/o the need to "solve" something or enter combat.

The only game they have up on there that I need to play more of Destiny 2 and I can never bring myself to play that game so I uninstalled the Blizz app for the first time in like a decade.
They should DO something like Warcraft 4 and stop fucking around.

Same here. Never owned a console in my life, always been a PC gamer since 1988. Never gonna buy a supremely inferior console to get a GTAXII or Red Dead Redemption VII... stop being stupid and release the games on PC at launch; sales would be even further through the roof.

I seem to remember referring to DOS2 as Baldur's Gate 3 but I echo the sentiment, less puzzles - way more open. Very excited to see Larian working on this; the only studio that I think could make it cool again - not been impressed with Obsidian stuff.

News Comments > Valve Teases Index VR Headset
5. Re: Valve Teases Index VR Headset Mar 30, 2019, 12:29 heroin
 
I wouldn't even say it's a "fad" - it's difficult to go back and play games on a normal monitor. A great example of this is something like GNOG, which can be played in 2d on a regular monitor but comes to absolute LSD vision in VR. However, GNOG is also a great example of why VR controls are not ready for primetime. For now, I am happy to have non-VR contoller/"made for VR" 2D games converted to VR like Polybius, or Rez Infinite. Or SUPERHYPERCUBE which all have very simple controls and are very simple games.

One of the reasons VR probably hasn't been a resounding success is all about obtuse design, stop designing games like I want to be standing up and active (I don't!), I want to sit in my fucking chair and I don't want the camera axis to display this fact when I boot up a game and have to fiddle with .ini files to correct it. Stop designing room-scale only without locomotion programmed into it, can't stand the teleporting controls or worse games that don't have either. If you're creating a puzzle game maybe make it easier for people to access youtube inside the headset, or in the very least make sure people can alt-tab the game instead of quitting.

Yeah, this game could actually be good in VR. VR is the perfect medium for this game cuz it's super chill. The complete opposite of another spacey game like Polybius that came out not too long ago for PC, great game if played on a monitor but game was meant for VR where it's elevated to beautiful & utter psychedelic chaos.

I know we're talking about Germany but don't forget about Scandinavia. The US is F'd up in terms of locking people up - we hold 25% of all of the worlds prisoners. However, on the opposite end of the spectrum - in Norway dude massacres 77 people (admits that he wishes he could have killed more) and gets 22 years in a vacation home prison. You know they believe in rehabilitation and shit like that even for mr. evil incarnate who slaughters 77 people like animals.

Looks awesome. Looks super solid, map looked interesting to explore and the sound design is dope. Now time to go finish DUSK in the meantime.
