My second daughter, Sophie, is born yesterday 06:18 CET so seems I have two things to celebrate

Severance. Best souls game ever before there were even souls games. Souls games should be referrer to as Blades games or something xD

Not much into time travel games but I've been playing the stand alone Dishonored game and it has been pretty enjoyable. Obviously not as epic in scope as Dishonored 2 but holds its own for a solid stand alone that I'm assuming will be rather short. I'm enjoying it a lot.

Waiting to hear more about this or just until it hits bargain bin before jumping into it. Similar to what I did with Dishonored. I'm honestly shocked how long I waited on Dishonored 2. It was very well made. Some of the best destruction physics in a game that were highly satisfying.

I think both Dishonored games are deeply flawed and I feel like a friend and myself are the only ones in the whole while world that feel like this. What's the flaw?

Welp, the game gives you all these awesome magical abilities, but one minute into (I think) both games, the game almost literally tells you that killing ANYONE is bad and may result in the bad ending. I ended up never using said awesome magical abilities because all of them kill. Now the game could've been smart about it to allow you to kill either very evil enemies, or have enemies like zombies for example to which the morality of the kill/incapacitate choice wouldn't apply. But of course that wasn't there because it all had to do with this rat plague or whatever. So killing had less to do with morals, and more to do with not feeding the plague.

"Here's all these cool abilities! Oh, but if you use them, you're evil." Well fuck me sideways!

In the first Dishonored, sure. Although one could argue that the temptation is part of the challenge. Being good shouldn't be easy.

In the second one, if you scry on them and it turns out they're bad, you can kill them without negative consequence.

Not sure if I ever knew about this 🤔 I did like D2 much more than the first...

I bounced off Wrath because it can be a bit unintuitive trying to figure out where you're supposed to go at a certain point. And in trying to figure it out, moving slowly across the 2d map and getting stopped by random encounters... pretty aggravating. But, it's also a game that potentially has many hours in it.


Yup this is a problem. Some quests have no real time limit except for "finish this chapter" but then without warning I shouldn't have left a certain area you return to frequently before finding some escaped Desna priest. I couldnt find him at first so forgot about it for a second. Then went back a few in-game hours later (20 minutes real life) and this fucker was suddenly about to get executed by the zealous inquisitor that gave me the quest. I had to kill the inquisitor which I definitely didn't want to do (he was confused moreso than evil). It truly pissed me off.

Turns out there are more of these "YOU BETTER DO THIS RIGHT FUCKING NOW" quests without warning. Apparently I could've prevented the setting-on-fire of good crusaders that could've joined my army. How the motherfuck.

That Ars Technica link reads like the game is a shit failure. So I was already half facepalm when I read the rest and perked up. I either don't get the headline, or AT's opinion is very different than the others.

Will give the actual review a look once I've decided it's worth my time. #yolo, after all.

ARRRRGGGHHHH I've been having the dilemma since release on whether to buy it or not. The 50 bucks was already worth not having this constant doubt lol.

Could someone answer this question please: Is there a casual difficulty that lets the combat play out more like... say, Dragon Age Origins? I found Kingmaker's rules extremely convoluted and I lost patience. But this game looks so much better!

You can put the game on super easy difficulty (if you disable crusade mechanic at least) or if you want that mechanic, get the mod that allows you to toggle autowins. Sounds stupid, but the crusade mechanic is the worst part of the game imo, some of those fights took over 300 rounds....

But whether it is fun on Casual and lower (Yes, it goes lower) is another question.

Hmm I was 16 hours into Kingmaker and the game is kind of a blur to me (I keep mistaking it for my time in Pillars of Eternity.... or wait is that the ARPG? Oh nope that's Path of Exile lol). But I think I quit Kingmaker because of the tactical stuff you had to do as a kingdom. So it sounds like that similar mechanic in Pathfinder 2 will also be the point my interest is lost.

Ugh, this dilemma cannot be resolved by reviews and gameplay vids..

- Kotor 2: LucasArts rushed Obsidian and the last part and ending is rather abrupt.
But most of the game and the character deep interactions and choices where on another level.
Totally worthy game though.
Nexus modded, with restored cut content, it gets fleshed out better.
Like RogueSix said, Kreia character rocked.

Kreia's character, her analysis of the Jedi/Sith and the overall philosophy of her discourse is legendary.
Numerous papers have been written about this, and they're fascinating.

It would certainly be worth of a remake too.

I remember I used her line "Apathy is death" on any occasion where it would apply. I received a lot of raised eyebrows, but the right kind of nerds don't give a shit. I was still an idiot though.

This game has the best twist in any story ever made, period. "I see dead people" is a fucking joke compared to this twist. It's one I didn't see coming, and it knocked me off my feet.

The above is a problem in case of a remake. All of us except for the new generation know about this twist. Without that twist, KOTOR is much like KOTOR 2: A good game, but not even remotely as legendary as the first -- and even a bit forgettable.

I called the big twist literally within minutes of the game starting, after it was revealed that the player character has (conveniently) lost their memory, so when twist came later in the game I was like "geez... finally". I think it didn't help that I had heard about some kind of "big twist" beforehand so I knew to expect something, otherwise I may not have figured it out. Apart from that, I don't remember the game much except that there was some kind of psycho droid that I found entertaining.

Ohh, yeah hearing about a big twist beforehand changes things big-time I think. I stumbled upon this guy on YouTube, and in his latest video he also starts with mentioning a "big twist/reveal" at the end of the video. Because of this I almost immediately figured out what was going on.

Here's the video. It is FUCKED UP indeed, but worth the watch:

I admire people who can play those types games in VR. I don't think I would have the nerve to do it.

Just watching WaB avoid Jeff in HL Alex was tense enough.

Just have Friends play on the TV in the background. Whenever it gets too scary just tune into Chandler's next joke.

My beef is that I do not like liars nor do I like to be lied to.

Sean Murray flat out lied and misrepresented the product before its release. There's no "matter of perspective" here, he willfully and knowingly misrepresented the product.

As I said in a previous thread, neither he nor Hello Games get credit for fixing their fuckups. It's expected. The fact that other devs don't is irrelevant to me.

It could be the most awesome game ever made in the whole of human endeavor right now, it would still be irrelevant to me.

NMS is tainted by its birth and the actions of its devs. It always will be.
Ouch, see your point and beef. I wasn't tuned in to the game back there, only read here and there.
That would definitely keep me from buying any of their games, thanks.

Meh, to me it was obvious that Sean wasn't a PR guy. He was nervous and awkward in every interview. I took everything he said with a grain of salt, but apparently I have a special sense for these things since the rest of the gaming community went postal when NMS wasn't even close to what Sean promised.

Personally I wouldn't let Burrito of Peace's grudge influence you too much. There's another side of the coin and that's me. Eventually they keep giving this game love, more than I've ever seen any other dev do. They could've just cashed in but they didn't. I still believes this is all on Awkward Sean and not on the entire tiny team that's Hello Games. Just get the game now. It's a fucking diamond by now.

A Plague Tale Innocence and Alan Wake have a thing in common. It's a world / an environment so beautiful and believable that it almost feels like an open world game, but imo even better. There's a beautiful mystery in seeing something interesting in the distance -- like a radio tower or waterfall in case of Alan Wake, or a windmill or old ruins in Plague -- that you can't reach, but is there in almost painting-like fashion. It gives me an almost in love / lovesick feeling of awe in those games.

In an open world game you can just run there, find some random loot and an enemy and there goes the mystique...
