Well, it's not like Mercer isn't a talented voice actor... but I guess Jim Cummings was considered to be too old, or wanted too much money?

Seems weird, I think they replaced the original Jaheira voice actor (Heidi Shannon) as well, but I guess she somehow dropped off the face of the earth in 2001. It's rough out there for voice actors.

The vehicles were actually my breaking point...
Driving through one of the BT entity whatever areas and being thrown from vehicle to be forced to do stupid crawl around shit throwing grenades or whatever at invisible ghosts... fuck all of that.
I'm still mad lol

Haha, I think that only happened to me like once, but I spent a ton of time rebuilding all of the roads I could. I played online so there was some help from other people contributing road resources. It's been awhile but there were ways to detect all of those guys, but yes, I can see it being aggravating. I did feel that overall it added to the weird danger of the whole world though. *EDIT* Also online, once you have areas reconnected, people had put up signs for most of the annoying invisible monster areas.

$69.99 Base price... a bold move, Cotton.

Then again, I consistently have like 1000+ hours in Diablo games, sooo...

*EDIT* What exactly is their Season Pass going to be, cosmetic shit or real content? Or no word yet?
*EDIT* Hrm according to this link the Season Pass sounds like it can be avoided by people like me, who don't care about cosmetics much. We'll see, I guess.

I liked Death Stranding quite a bit, after going into it mostly blind. I'll get this for sure.

Sepharo -> Interesting, I felt there was more than enough walking and balancing boxes in the early part of the game, as soon as driving was available I started taking the bikes and vans to shorten travel when possible. I agree that the console combat wasn't great, but what are you going to do, it's a multiplatform game where they want to make a couple hundred million dollars on consoles.

I should re-watch Altered Carbon. Not as good as the books, but still pretty good.
Making the show was the kiss of death for the show, in my opinion. If they followed the books at ALL, they would have to change lead actors several times. They did, and regular people tuned out.

I always wonder if people that call D3 cartoony actually played D1 or D2.

Seriously. D2 has day-glo enemies and zones eventually. Neon everything.

D3 definitely had some art influence from WoW, but not THAT much, lol.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to Diablo 4 with great anticipation. Of course it has controller support, even on PC, many players play with controllers now. I am a Keyboard +mouse purist of course, but we're literally a dying breed.

I bought this. I have played Dwarf Fortress a couple times, or at least tried to, with the straight ASCII version and some of the graphic mods, albeit years ago.

This version seems friendlier already, although it has been like 10 years since I last played.

I heard this is a more punishing version of Frostpunk, but set in space obviously. Sounds too depressing for me to get.

I got Days Gone on a Steam sale, played through the main story, did most of the hordes and nests, including all of the largest hordes. I think I uninstalled with a few smaller scattered hordes left. My character was fully maxxed out in the three skill 'trees' from mission and random experience gains. I used a mod to prevent melee weapons breaking, because crafting the same good axe 100 times was annoying as hell. I can shoot 100,000 rounds through this LMG, and never even let it cool off or change the barrel, yet my solid metal weapon breaks after like 8 swings? Ridiculous busy work. Should have been a toggle built into the game, have no melee weapon degradation. I never found a real suppressor either, just crafted oil can suppressors, which is ridiculous for modern day America. Suppressors are all over the place in civilian and military usage, and they last a long fucking time. Crafting those is just busy work.

It's an okay game. The story and character writing goes from atrocious to acceptable and back, throughout the game. The ending especially was extremely aggravating to me in how ridiculously bad the writing was. The choice of outlaw bikers was pretty weird to me as well, at least for modern day America where those guys are literally organized crime and/or racist traitors to the United States in the present day. Ignoring that, weapon balance was a bit weak, only some guns were actually useful vs the numbers of enemies you will face. Also they could have used a more 'realistic' ammo system. 9mm is the same across two different pistols, Days Gone. I can take out those bullets from this dead enemy's weapon and use them in my other firearm, okay? It was really annoying with the rifles... kill some guys with 5.56 weapons, whoops, can't use their ammo for some reason in my weapon which is also a 5.56 caliber weapon. A lot of open world busy work for not much benefit. I crafted everything possible, used basically... health potions? Noise makers and other crap were rarely worthwhile, easier to just run infected into a bottleneck and use the Growler firebomb on them then LMG. If there was a flamethrower in the game I never found it, but I kept expecting to see one, considering how many times firebombs, molotovs, etc. came up in the storyline.

Logic wise, the story failed repeatedly, but this is not exactly uncommon in games these days. By the time my motorcycle was fully upgraded it felt almost like a real motorcycle in terms of speed, but that was near the end of the game.

I felt like there could have been a real awesome opportunity for better design for the traps and crossbow, but there are literally too many human and infected enemies to make those worthwhile after the very early game. Some of the sniper rifles were pretty amazing as well, but you hamstring yourself if you take one instead of an LMG. Should have been more weapon slots, or a few weapon slots on the motorcycle to carry special use weapons.

Based on my playthrough, the game probably sold better and had better reviews than it realistically deserved, this guy should be happy with the success he received.

I'm hoping this show existing means that there will be shortly be PC versions of the The Last of us 1 and 2, to cash in on the whole thing.

I've been hearing the PC versions were in the works for years now, and there is an unofficial mod to play the PS version of TLoU 1 on PC already.

Excellent, by the time I thin out the queue a little bit to replay Cyberpunk, the GotY version and hopefully all of the DLC will be out. Ideally this will be a free upgrade to previous owners, but we'll see, I guess.

Hrm, looks pretty good, definitely looks better than the buggy original port of DS1. I swear I had to use a mod to get the mouse to even work correctly in the first game, but it's been like 15 years so I might be mistaken.

Also, since Callisto Protocol is currently such a steaming pile of shit, I am tempted to actually pick up this remake before it goes on sale.

I'm replaying Dead Space 2 at the moment, and it's glorious. It makes me annoyed how bad DS3 was though in comparison.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons... I bought that on some massive discount on Humble back in the day, and now own it on Steam, GoG, and Amazon via various giveaways. Yet, I've never even played it.

I really need to get around to it, I even have a Steam controller too.

*EDIT* Also, few, finally I can own Quake. Haha!

Ugh, I'm not even sure the removal of Denuvo and some shader patches are going to fix this game. In depth descriptions of the combat in Steam reviews make it sound like the basic systems of the game are terribly designed. Melee focus, with terrible design ideas about dodging and enemy composition. Too bad there are dozens of Dark Souls and Dark Souls clone games that do that far better.

All these fuckers had to do was remake Dead Space with a new storyline and better graphics, and it would have sold millions. Now all we'll really get I guess, is the Dead Space 1 and eventually Dead Space 2 remakes.

Ugh. How do these studios keep fucking up? It almost feels like it's on purpose at this point.

I have yet to buy the game, I'll think about it the next couple of days. This was originally going to be a day 1 purchase for me.

With how incredibly expensive and many years it takes to remake a game of this size I really don't see the point of this. Just make The Witcher 4 and move the franchise forward not backward. This doesn't need a remake.

I would rather have a Witcher 4 instead of this remake as well, but I'm sure this was a well calculated decision. 50 million (random guess) to remake Witcher 1, without having to also rewrite/ the game/write a a new game, or spend 200+ million to make a Witcher 4, and they will probably sell relatively similar anyway. Then of course, they could just make Witcher 4 after this remake anyway, and cash in on both.

Ugh, I was so hyped for The Callisto Protocol, so of course it has Denuvo, and day one(?) DLC.

I'm still going to buy it, because I love Dead Space 1 and especially 2 so much, but I will debate whether to buy it release day or not.
