News Comments > Remnant: From the Ashes Gets New Free Dungeon

I got to the final boss and stopped. Not sure he's worth the effort. Definitely had a fun time playing. I may return for this dungeon. I had to grind in a few places to find enough materials to upgrade weapons, and a few extra dungeons would definitely have helped with that.

Very much enjoying this game, highly recommend it

Ditto. Sucked me in fast (I'm on PC). I'm stuck on the last boss, though. And since Greedfall came out, I may not get back to finish this.

News Comments > GreedFall Released
4. Re: GreedFall Released Sep 10, 2019, 16:42 Frijoles
 
Really pretty game. I only played a couple hours or so last night. Most of the complains have been over the facial animations. They are indeed bad. Like Skeletor bad. I feel like the NPCs are going to bite me through the screen. I think my biggest issue at the moment is the camera feels weird. Not bad, but sort of floaty. A couple other weird things, like my NPC companions popping in to view. Or the vendor that started explaining a quest to me that seemed part-way through leaving me wondering wtf he was talking about. Now that I think about it, there have been a few bugs.

Still, I think it'll shape up. Hopefully.

They make it sound doom and gloom, which for a lot of people I'm sure it was. But the examples they give aren't very good. Take this one: $325,239 for 191.118 bitcoins. That puts the price at $1701 per coin. Bitcoin is trading at $10,329 today. That puts him at $17,577,588. Reckless? Sure. But that's a hell of a return. Or the other one, taking out $250k loan for Bitcoin at "dropped below $10,000". He's still in the positive. Not much, but better than nothing considering it dropped so far.

I spent a fair amount on coins during the craze. I took a loss on them, but it was fun watching it go up. And the amount I spent wasn't crazy. It's going to moon any day now. I can feel it.

1. WoW level 60 Sep 2, 2019, 17:34 Frijoles
 
It turns out World of Warcraft wasn't quite as hard as we remember it being.

I don't remember it being hard. I remember it being a horrible grind. Which it is. Collect 10 of these items. They drop about 5% of the time, and the mob hangs out in groups of 4. There is the one solo guy that walks around though. Good luck. The main thing Classic has going for it are the players/community. I haven't seen so many players in a very long time, since they get spread out and layered away in the latest versions. It's a nice change. Not sure if I'll hit 60 any time soon, though. At 2+ hours per level, my interest is fading.

One thing I really liked about this game was you could build a house in the open world, not some boring instanced area,

Except all the locations were taken when I played. That was shortly after release, though. I recall camping houses with a timer of some sort of when it might open, hoping the owner had left and not paid the bill. If that's the alternative, I'd rather have an instanced house.

I doubt I'll return to ArcheAge unelss it really takes off. Can't really trust that it won't become p2w again once people are invested in the game.

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

I'm finding everyone to be really pleasant to be around as well. Buffs being handed out. Food/water from mages. Groups being formed for quests. Maybe that's just because there are so many people in the area, but I don't recall anything like that on the recent expansions. I look forward to keeping the communities in tact, even if I am mostly a solo player. Unless I quit.

Jumped in right at open, along with a few hundred others. Bit difficult to tag mobs, but slowly making progress. There's so much stuff I've forgotten about. It's bringing back a lot of memories. I'm still more or less playing BfA (I use tokens), so I figure I'll jump in here from time to time. Think my guild might actually be returning also, so that's a bit of a surprise.

These games are the only games that give me severe motion sickness. The first one (the first remade one) was fine, but every one since then I can't play for more than about 15 - 20 minutes. Not sure what it is that's messing my head up so much.

And just how did you happen to come across this? Inquisitive I can't imagine what you would be searching for that would have you accidentally come across someone selling urine gummy bears.

Make ur own gummy bears. Autocorrected, of course.

We won't get HL3 for VR. We'll get "The Half Life VR Experience." It will consist of the tram ride to the lab, putting on Gordon's EVA suit, and performing experiments in the lab before triggering the resonance cascade. Total run time: 5 minutes.

And then we'll get to play Rock Paper Scissors with G-Man.

Looks nice, but there are so many rails it looks like a train station. "Let's upgrade you little robot. I bet this comes in real handy!" 2 seconds later, it comes in handy. Ugg.

Didn't they mention this coming to Steam some time? I figured I'd try it when it does, if it's cheap.

I was reading a bunch of comments on this yesterday. It seems most people left because they were still doing frequent character wipes. I believe this is where we put ::surprised pikachu:: face as the developer response.

Every 60-120 seconds the game pauses and tells you about how to do something really basic.

This one is driving me crazy. Talk about abruptly taking you out of the game. And there's no way to make it clear faster. Same stupid animation for how much money you got, same stupid animation for leveling up. QA must have had a hidden switch to turn that off or they'd have killed themselves while testing.

Also the menus are horribly slow on my system (Threadripper + 1080ti). Moving anywhere, either page to page or even on the same page, is about .5 - 1 second per click. Luckily the map comes up pretty quick, but everything else is so slow.

After the cash cow on PC that is GTA no way Rockstar is going to make the mistake of passing up that sort of money again. Oh, it's coming alright.

Big question is whether is going to be an exclusive to certain stores for a year.
