Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Come on guys, lighten up. At least he has a methodology. :D In his defence, I looked up some more recent reviews to see if he classifies every game by hours played (he doesn’t) and he seems to have refined the review process a bit. But anything less than 500 hours now, I’m waiting for a discount. :)...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

So, Outward . I think this has been mislabelled to a large extent, with the Dark Souls stuff. To me, it's much more like Monster Hunter (or at least the Monster Hunter we had in our imaginations when we heard the fans proselytising about it in the years prior to MonHunWorld). You fight lots of lesse...

Re: Videogame Deals

Got burned slightly with two of my Jan sale purchases - Graveyard Keeper is in the new Humble (which I’d have bought if I hadn’t had it) and FrostPunk is coming to Game Pass. Humble’s winter sale has just started and there are some good deals. Generation Zero (I know, but I’m convinced there’s a goo...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm in a very weird place with Dishonored 2 in that I really like a lot about the game but the gameplay didn't really click with me. I finished it, and I was really impressed by it, but it seems I'm just not destined to get on with that brand of stealth. I felt exactly the same about the first game...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Just to be clear, I am not recommending Outward to Dark Souls fans - the combat is pretty bad, manages to be both awkward and floaty, you're restricted to one save and can lose all your stuff, and scene transition load times on console are unbearably long. It is very much an RPG for the cool kids/hi...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I had a brief dive into Outward (the Dark Souls RPG) last week, but was away for the weekend. I was kinda Jonesing for it last night, but was confined to the couch, so I only went and bought it on PS4 as well (EUR 17.99 so not toooo bad). Now I'm stuck with save games on PC and console. :( There are...

Re: Games Completed 2020

To be honest as someone who played hidden agenda multiplayer I can atttest that it is a good idea but a bit rubbish. I actually only played it solo recently and found it much better Sorry, overlooked this post yesterday! That's a pity, to hear that. Would be interesting to see a breakdown of number...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Did you manage to get through that bit at the end on normal? Right pain in the arse when they're chucking all the cows and stuff at you, you really need your bird powered up there or that bit can last for aaaaages. Yeah, it transcends the genre, definitely. Such a unique, gorgeous little thing. Yes...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Am I crazy here?!?! I’ve heard nothing but praise for this game, but I’m getting a real case of the Emperor’s New Clothes... I’m just not prepared to fight with these terrible controls in the hopes that the game might eventually get bearable as it goes. :lol: As someone who doesn't really like the ...

Monolith Sir, this is [strikethrough]a McDonalds[/strikethrough] the Completed Games thread. @Isopod. I enjoyed Hidden Agenda when I played it (single player) too. I would have liked to see how the multiplayer panned out, especially as the person with the hidden agenda trying to influence the other...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

It seems ‘like dark souls’ now just means ‘if you die you have to recover stuff from your corpse’ now to a lot of developers. And that’s the mechanic I dislike the most from those games so... yeah. Yeah, I wonder if the devs decided to market it as such, or if it's something the gaming press seized...

Re: Games Completed 2020

Disco Elysium is on my wishlist for later in the year. It looks like the quality of the prose will carry it over the 'reading reams of stuff in a video game' barrier. Sounds really interesting.

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I'm checking out Outward , the 'Dark Souls style RPG' from last year. I've just started, but it doesn't seem very Dark Souls to me. It is a bit difficult, and the fighting mechanics are very tentatively in the same ballpark, but it's more of an RPG with heavy survival mechanics. You have to boil wat...

Re: Games Completed 2020

It's a strong start to the new year - the first page of Games Completed totally consumed by a Where's Wally conversation. The Stillness of the Wind (PC Gamepass) The title gives it away - it's a slightly pretentious walking sim, or repetitive task sim, which looks good and has some contemplative mom...
