It's pretty fun, but it gets pretty repetitive after 8 hours. So yeah, worth it.

Looks extremely generic and I fail to understand why I should be excited. Also, they release almost no new notable info and I can barely distinguish this trailer from the previous one. Major let down.

I've never had a single issue caused by shovelware games on Steam. I've never been spammed by them, I've never had a hard time finding good games, I've never had a hard time filtering games, they don't hide good indie games. It doesn't take much time for enough reviews to accumulate for us to know exactly how good a game is. It's the best review system I've ever seen. I feel like I live in crazy land where everything is pink and happy and some of you live in evil fire land where you can't find a single good game when you filter by user reviews.

Let all games(except illegal stuff) get in in the hopes that they find their public. If you hate a game, don't pay for it or refund it. Hell, maybe some people actually like shitty asset flips. I know youtubers and streamers make a lot of money out of them.

Don't be the delicate flower many gamers have morphed into elsewhere on the internet where saying anything other than "that's the best game ever!" is seen as an attack on a product they love. People have different priorities and different tastes, and what one sees as "depth" others can see as points of frustration.

Didn't you just say that Fallout fans who don't like FO4 aren't video game fans? Hypocrite much?

Go back to that thread. I had to explain my joke, which means it was a bad one, but it was mocking the gatekeeping I quoted, not doing actual gatekeeping. I've never played FO4 (I may get to it someday, but doubtful), but the idea that fans of Fallout 4 aren't real Fallout fans is ridiculous, and that's exactly how the original post was phrased.

My description of Fallout 4: Fans of the best game released that year can imagine improvements to it.

It was an amazing game, but they dropped 90% of the quest/dialogue/rpg system in favor of adding 90% more survival game mechanics. I can definitely understand why fans of the previous Fallout games would be mad, but I happen to love survival games, so... I still would have preferred more RPG in it though.

Anyway, what should I buy for free Sunless Sea?

Will I hate Divinity: Original Sin? I feel like probably. Maybe Shadow Warrior II, even though I thought SW1 kind of sucked. Maybe Lego Harry Potter and try to convince the GF to play with me. Maybe West of Loathing, since I feel like I played Kingdom of Loathing a decent amount back in... 03?

Or just buy Megarace, Syndicate, and Interstate 82.

Will you hate D:OS !?!? Have you gone plum loco!? D:OS and D:OS2 are great RPGs, with great turn based combat systems. D:OS was a little rough on day one of release, but it's been remastered/patched/whatever quite a bit, and is a truly excellent RPG now.

All of those choices are great, although I'd give Shadow Warrior 2 the lowest priority, personally. I enjoyed it, but they tried to do too much with too low a budget, I think.

I don't know man. In the modern world we find ourselves in, putting the time and effort that the Divinity games require seems impossible. You really need to be patient with them in order to reap the payoff. Shadow Warrior 2 on the other hand is better in every way compared to the first game(except story) and is really easy to pick up and enjoy. It's also a totally different game compared to the first one. Get a quest, kill some monsters, get some loot, level up, rinse repeat.

The Lego games aren't my thing. It was fun for the first 3 hours, but when I realized there was nothing else to the gameplay, I was done. And Megarace, how can anyone like this game? It's essentially a cinematic where the only controls are sliding left or right. There's almost no game. There's a lot of people who enjoy it for some reason, but I can't imagine anyone nowadays remotely liking it.

It always amazes me the level of detail in your memories regarding games. I can't even remember my strategy in a game from last year let alone 1994. Like, I played XWING v TIE FIGHTER and the first couple Civ games endlessly for years. Now I couldn't tell you much about them now except that I loved them for 2 or 3 reasons each. My strategy or story details or things like that? Not a chance. At least I am old enough now at 44 to start blaming it on age. As good an excuse as any.

I have really bad long term memory and can't remember details, but I can remember how I felt about things with pretty good accuracy.

The first XCom was more about using the technologies you liked and to customize everything.

Do you mean the 1994 X-COM or the 2012ish XCom?

I feel like both were about abandoning old tech asap. In the original, rifles and HE went out the window to plasma then heavy plasma, maybe with a detour to laser if you had time (and I sometimes had a few units with laser just to blast holes everywhere.) In the newer one, more or less the same, though I remember it less well despite playing through 2.5 times.

I don't remember ever really using old tech in any game if I could help it, and in the original, I'd bypass tech like lasers more often than not.

Could be faulty memory of mine on the 2012 Xcom. Which I loved.

I meant the first ever XCom game. It's been a while, but it definitely felt like original XCom had a real sense of customization while the new one felt more like linear unlocks.

I liked the new XCom, but I wasn't a fan of the progression and research. It felt like some technologies were flat out better in every way and there was no reason to use older ones or to even research some of them. The first XCom was more about using the technologies you liked and to customize everything. The progression also felt linear instead of you customizing things. How does Xenonauts compare?

cheat protection is going to have to be stepped up otherwise most of these improvements will just make the game even more frustrating.

shooting people through walls for example is just screaming for people to abuse that ability.

I wonder if they're planing on scaling back the player count on servers, adding so much more physics to the game is bound to have a negative effect.

R6 Siege has shooting through walls and it's fine. I love it myself.

Although, I'm a little hesitant over their concept of completely removing random deviation for bullets... surely that can't mean that guns will be laser accurate? (With of course recoil, bullet drop and travel time, but still). Are they planning on having recoil make the cross-hairs jump around, but the bullets will still be 100% accurate to that moving cross-hair?

I was also thinking about that. It's a nice idea to have the gun fire where it is pointed, but at the same time that means the first shot is always on perfectly on target if you have the time to aim. My guess is maybe your crosshair/barrel is not still but always moving slightly to simulate breathing/involuntary hand movements. Inaccurate guns may move more, or perhaps zoom in much less in ADS. We'll have to wait and see I guess, but I think it is cool that they experiment a bit and not just copy-paste from earlier iterations.

It's possible that when you shoot, there's recoil and your crosshair/view moves with it, but the shots will always go exactly at the crosshair. It would still be pretty innacurate to go full auto.

All these changes sound great. Not sure about the aiming thing, but I'm sure it'll be fine. These guys know what they're doing.

Please don't be Fallout Online...

My #1 wish is that they take Fallout 4 and add multiplayer to it. But, I don't want a new Fallout game to have multiplayer from the start, it'll corrupt it.

I'm waiting for stable release, but I'll give it a try. It's definitely not for all games, but for slower games like Into The Breach or Talos Principle or Hob, I think this might not be so bad to use given you have a tablet (or a phone) and wish to stream to it. I don't really use the feature as is, though, and we have a macbook and an Zenbook in our apartment. So streaming to my other devices isn't something I do anyway.

Still good features though.

I'm not a fighting game expert, but I tried Mortal Kombat X which is a "fast" action game and the lag didn't affect the game much. It was perfectly playable. I think the real issue is that it's pretty cumbersome to stream on my phone with no stand and carry a gamepad. It could make sense for touchscreen/mouse-only games.

Fan expectations too high? I love Borderlands, but from what I've seen of the two sequels, it's Gearbox who aims too low. Tons of issues and annoyances that could have been easily solved in the sequels were ignored and instead we got essentially the same game thrice.
edit: and I know Gearbox didn't directly do the pre-sequel, but the blood is still on their hands.
