Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm currently playing Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales , halfway through the 4th. chapter to be more precise. Man, I missed this world so effing much! Not even Netflix's Witcher show, which I enjoyed, scratched the itch that The Witcher games left me with. I'm not a big fan of card games but, still,...

Re: Cyberpunk 2077

As I said in other corners of the internet, I'm glad about the delay mainly because it'll give me more time to both save money for my in-the-nearish-future computer upgrade and to wait for new interesting PC hardware (like new graphics cards and processors) to be released in the meantime :)

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I only played Dragon Quest 9 and I really enjoyed it! Quite old school but mostly free of the more annoying pitfalls of JRPGs. Just a really chill time and does not take itself too seriously so I would personally recommend it if you are looking for more Dragon Quest. I might try it, if I manage to ...

Re: Cyberpunk 2077





Except for Ilan Rubin (his work with Nine Inch Nails specifically), I'm not too familiarized with almost all of these musicians but I'm positively impressed with their inclusion in the game's radio soundtrack 8-) And there are supposedly more to be revealed!

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

After many, many weekends, I’ve beaten Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past for 3DS. Pretty great game, especially if you’re already a fan of the saga and if you have patience for slow games, because the pacing in this one is glacial :lol: Even so, I’d say it's my favorite one from all ...

Re: Cyberpunk 2077

pwgrsjHlqas CD Projekt RED are pulling out the big guns with this game, incredible. And what a great show they did at E3 this year, by the way. I mean, the aesthetics, the atmosphere, the characters, the music and, of course, Keanu Reeves! Goddamn, what an amazing game this is going to (hopefully) ...

Re: Cyberpunk 2077

Saw the gameplay video as soon as IGN streamed it. Honestly the game they showed in that video is more than I expected, in a very good way :) I don't expect it to overtake the place The Witcher 3 has in my heart but it seems like the type of game that would probably enter my top 10 favorite videogam...

Re: Cyberpunk 2077

I was so hyped for this game despite not knowing what the hell it would turn out to be: a GTA clone? An immersive sim a la Deus Ex? A shooter with some RPG sprinkled on top? But now that I’ve seen the trailer and read some bits about the behind-closed-doors demo they showed to the gaming press at E3...

Re: 310: BioShock Infinite

What a great discussion! Personally, I believe that the game portraited both the Founders and the Vox Populi as equivalent evils so they —the developers and publishers— could reach to a bigger audience. For instance, I think that if they would have tried to show the Vox Populi as a mostly sympatheti...

Recently I’ve been playing NieR: Automata and so far I’ve liked it very much. It’s got an incredible storyline —some anime tropes notwithstanding— and interesting characters (I love the design and acting of the Machine Lifeforms) but if there’s something that really stands out for me among everythin...

I came here just to say that, regardless of anyone's positions about any of the game's subjects, I love reading these type of discussions!

Keep them coming, as long as they're respectful, as objective as possible and insightful, of course.

Re: Favourite Enemies/Monsters in Games (not Bosses)

My picks would be: 1) Big Sisters ( BioShock 2 ) Incredibly agile and psychically powerful mutant girls, plus they have a very cool suit design, like slender Big Daddies. 2) Striders ( Half-Life 2 and episodes) Towering three-legged alien cyborg tanks (that’s a mouthful :lol: ). Hugely intimidating ...

As you can tell from my previous comments about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt , I’m a huge fan of this series and I particularly love the third entry, it being a culmination of everything that was great about The Witcher 1 —like its folkloric atmosphere— and The Witcher 2 —like its gameplay systems— with...
