Yeah, I ended up beating it the next day. Did not expect it to be so short. Well, still good.


Wow, I haven't played Soul Caliber in at least a decade. And even then, it was the second one. Kilik was my man.

That's a great game, it's not too long so hopefully you stick with it and figure things out! Excellent writing.

Playing Soul Calibur 6 a lot lately myself. A nice return to form!

I just started playing "Firewatch." I'm not sure how well I'm doing, and I really don't want to look up how to play this game and end up spoiling it.

It's one of those mostly open world games where I easily end up running around in circles, especially since the map is something your character actually has to hold in front of himself. God help you if you have to look at the map while you're holding something else.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker from Owlcat Games and Paizo. It is a nice throwback to games like Baulder's Gate and the original Neverwinter Nights. Like I said in my review on the Facebook page, it does have some glitches that can be annoying, but Owlcat is putting out hotfixes every few days and working on the first big patch due later this month. I definitely think they should have fixed a bit more before launch since it has a beta test feel to it, but I still am enjoying the game.

And the music... seriously, it makes me happy. My favorite part mechanically, though, is the map exploration because it replicates using minis on a tabletop and it is just cute.

I'm pretty burned out on superhero movies still, but I really want to play the new Spider-Man! Want to hit up God of War eventually too. I'm always a little behind heh, though I'm playing Yakuza Kiwami 2 right now.

Same. I'm not interested in playing a game against kids who have nothing better to do than grind their character all day and night while I'm at work, doing other shit with my life, and then get on the game just to have these toddlers repeatedly frag my ass.

Yeah, not to mention the whole nuke thing seems like it could be potentially annoying.

And I swear I think I heard somewhere that you only join up with like ~36 other players at a time, or something like that. Yet... they're saying the game is like 4x bigger than Fallout 4. So how long will it take to even see anyone!?

Too many questions for this game that Bethesda keeps sidestepping. I think this could be a hot mess. And to think months ago they were so proud of how much they uplift single player games. That's all I want with my Fallout's!

I've been meaning to check out the remaster. It's cool on Steam they gave it away for free if you owned the original.

Either way yeah, TE6 can't come soon enough! But I think I might need a new rig myself coming up here soon, even though my GTX 1060 has been treating me very well. I have a hunch it won't be close to enough for Cyberpunk.

I still haven't beaten Skyrim to be honest. I got the upgraded edition, and my graphics card started acting wonky... I honestly haven't been using my laptop much at all since then out of fear of it failing. I definitely need a new rig before TES6 comes out.

I'm really slow on games... I just started playing Skyrim (with mods to make it look good, of course) a few weeks ago. I'm loving it! I almost wish I had played it when it came out... But some of these environmental mods are just too good.

Yup, been going through the new "God of War." It's a gorgeous game.

Since we were gone for three weeks, I had to do my damnedest to avoid spoilers. I even ran into a Kratos at the Georgia Renaissance Faire and we got to talking. Thankfully the worst he said was, "The twist at the end is gonna get you!" Well, what game DOESN'T have a twist at the end, these days?

Might I recommend Horizon Zero Dawn? It is truly a beautiful game and I think you guys would enjoy it. The DLC was also worth it and more challenging.

Finished my second playthrough of Andromeda... ultimately made a lot of the same choices, but liked the changes that I made better than the original run. Liam is a bit less of a tool than I thought, but still disappointed with the lackluster romances.

In case you are wondering why it took such a long time between starting my second playthrough and finishing it... well.... I may have had a small addiction with Stardew Valley on the Switch for a bit. I never did get into Harvest Moon or any similar games but I have to say that it is surprisingly easy to get sucked in.

I actually recently played AC4, because I'm trucking through my backlog, and decided to hit all the AC games I haven't played yet.

Finished Revelations, 3, Black Flag, and Freedom Cry in the past half year, and plan on hitting Rogue at some point in the next few months.

Once I finish Rogue, there's just Unity, Syndicate, and Origins...

-----

My current game is NBA 2k18, though. I've been putting a lot of hours into MyGM (while they patch MyLeague bugs) so I can get VC (damn virtual currency) for my MyPlayer, so he stops shooting bricks every time, and make the mode playable.

I just finished the story mode for it (story mode in a franchise. What a time to be alive), and it was pretty annoying. Being given constant orders, having a key player of my would-be championship team traded for a fucking fourth-string center, just because of "stats" pissed me off and almost made me turn it off completely.

Lost in the Conference Finals 4-2. The main reason was a lack of depth at small forward (the position that the "key player" was) and abundance of centers.

Basic basketball knowledge for anybody who knows nothing of sports - it is very hard to play 4 centers at two positions over a period of 48 minutes, and even harder when that other position has 3 players at it that are just as deserving of time. At some point there's just diminishing returns, and the stamina trade off just isn't worth it.

Also, it is legitimately a bad idea to have a single player play almost all 48 minutes of a game, which is exactly what happened every single game until he got injured, because our crapass owner traded the only other small forward on the roster (generally these are the athletic wings responsible for fast break scores, meaning they run up and down the court a LOT and drain a LOT of energy - literally the worst position to only have 1 or 2 players at). Would have loved to have money to sign a player to a minimum deal, but dropping the player I would have dropped would have caused my owner to have a hissy fit, and probably get me fired. So hooray for automatically losing because of shitty rosters.

It's all good though. Because in the off-season I got promoted, my owner sold the team, and I'm given the reigns to determine how to construct a roster. With my other moves (besides the stupid trade I had no say on) panning out, I ended up being able to sign two super stars to maximum contracts (Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins), while also being able to use my draft picks creatively to get TWO top 3 picks (who, according to information I learned yesterday, have insane growth stats, and will legitimately be game breaking LeBron James/Russell Westbrook level freaks in less than two years).

Essentially, my team in two seasons is going to be

PG - Cheap, younger, better shooting version of Russell Westbrook
SG - Seth Curry (because even though he's not Steph Curry, he's hella good at shooting the ball, especially from 3 point range)
SF - Cheap, younger, 6'10" LeBron James, with a 95 3 point rating, and the most ridiculous athleticism I've ever seen in a video game character.
PF - Kevin Durant (who in my current offensive system is essentially a catch and shoot player who will snag many a corner three, while having the ability to drive for an easy bucket against much bigger and bulkier PFs)
C - DeMarcus Cousins (Who will virtually never get to shoot the ball, since I play a perimeter style of game, but will block a ton of shots and be an intense rebounder inside, which is vital).

Add in my surprising depth (I have a lot of cheap guys in the mid 70s with complementary styles who can rest my other guys), and I'm in an insane position to win championship after championship.

tl;dr - I'm out Warriorsing the Warriors, while stealing Kevin Durant from them.

Absolutely, DRM these days causes more issues for legitimate users than pirates.

Yeah, I played the Steam version... no issues here but if that really is why they stalled it for two weeks that's lame. I won't be surprised if the DRM gets removed because of the backlash.

I'm also playing through Mega Man Legends 2 right now after beating the first! These are amazing.

I know why it got delayed for PC, it's because of them adding denuvo DRM.
