Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

I have redone mine with the emphasis on pure enjoyment/obsessive gameplay etc, rather than 'I feel like I should put Bioshock in the top 20 really' standard of before. It's a kinda nonsensical list. 1 Demon's Souls 2 Mount & Blade 3 Out of the Park Baseball 4 Dark Souls 5 SOMA 6 Factorio 7 Deadly Pr...

Re: Videogame Criticism

Interesting critique of Bloodborne . The site reads better on mobile than on PC, I think. Bloodborne uses the classic Souls style of storytelling where there isn't much overt storytelling that explains what's happening or why you're doing the things you're doing; rather, you have to piece everything...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

..Roguelikes.. Alright Poindexter. If it's a proper roguelike I'll probably rule it out then. Roguelites forever! In the meantime, persevering with Battle Brothers. I got bogged down in looking at advanced strategies and 'how my party should be built,' rather than just enjoying the game, which I'm ...

Re: Epic Games Store

Conarium is free this week - it won't win any prizes but it is decent: Conarium (PC) has been getting a lot of love recently, so I thought I'd check it out. It's a narrative game based heavily on the work of Lovecraft, and follows an Antarctic expedition on a follow up mission to the team in Lovecr...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Do you like roguelikes, chopper? You might just need a little break from all those big brain games. Give golden krone hotel a go, that's fab! I notice that's a turn-based roguelike, did you tailor that recommendation for me? :) To be honest, I've only really started playing turn-based games this ye...

Re: Laptop Suggestions?

Yeah unless you're one of those guys who needs to have everything installed at once, the limitations of an SSD can be overstated. I have a 512GB SSD with 45 games + Office + a few bits and pieces installed, and am still only using three fifths of capacity. I don't usually like to have that many game...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I thought I liked Roguelikes but when I think about it, I haven't played that many. I will look into it ;)

Man, Darkest Dungeon is so good! I've played the first two hours about 8 times.

After that it gets really annoying. :D

Re: Laptop Suggestions?

You know what? You're right. I don't know where I got that idea.

Unless the game was saving/loading all the while, but that wouldn''t be the case here.

HDD it is, dusk. :oops:

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Haven't been playing much this week, but I'm finding Battle Brothers to be a bit overwhelming, in the same way as I found Darkest Dungeon to be overwhelming - too many people on your roster, too much gear and abilities to equip, too much 'meta' when reading up about tactics and strategy. I'm just pa...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Shoot! I didn't rank my list in order! FFVI would be in my top 3-5 games of all time. I've broken the system! What was the significance of the numbers? :shock: 1. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2. Super Mario World 3. Roller Coaster Tycoon 4. StarCraft 5. Baldur’s Gate 6. Half-Life 7. Civi...

The specs of the ones you listed matched the recommended specs here to a T, so I was momentarily very impressed with you Clippa, thought you'd done a lot of research :|

Re: What's Out This Week?

Greedfall seems to be being received very well, some places comparing it to Good Bioware . This is the developer that released The Technomancer , and I saw a conversation last month on RPS comments (over a few separate weeks) where that game was compared to early Bioware. It’s not very well polishe...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

If I had to rank it, I never would’ve posted it cause I wouldn't be able to. What about ranking them by tier? So if you had eight games in God Tier, they would all receive the same weighting (the average of the eight, basically), 10 games in Tier 2 get the average score for that tier and so on... E...

Re: Laptop Suggestions?

Those choices returned by Clippa look pretty good! You should probably look at a couple of video reviews also - the Dell Inspiron there looks to have quite a tacky/spongy keyboard, for example. I have an HP that looks quite similar to the HP Pavilion there and it is very robust in comparison. One wo...

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

It's not a bad top ten -they all left their indelible mark on gaming, that's for sure.

No, I mean with only 20 (21 now) people contributing, one new ranking will have a significant effect on the whole thing, meaning big leaps for certain games. I mean our overall sample is small, not yours.

Re: Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

You've seen a lot of the data now though, will you be able to do it impartially, or will you give more points to FF9 or MGS to try and bump it up? :D
