Title: What Video Game are You Playing Now II?

I'm still playing Skyrim. Pretty deep into my Thieves' Guild run. Then I'll do Mage's Guild, Dark Brotherhood, and any miscellaneous quests I've missed before moving on to my next game (I'm thinking it's time to tackle the Mass Effect trilogy).

Do you have any of the DLC for Mass Effect Rev?  That's the one annoying thing about the trilogy now, the repackaged trilogy lacks all of it and the DLC costs more than the actual game now. Most of it is totally unnecessary, but there's two of them in part 3 that might be worth looking at when you get to it.  The Javik character DLC and the Citadel DLC.  Just a heads up. 

Personally, I'm playing an RPG called Age of Decadence.  It's pretty neat, in a post-apocalyptic but somehow Roman Empire inspired setting.  I'm playing as basically a con man who can't fight at all, and the game supports that really well.  Solidly written too.

I also just beat Tesla VS Lovecraft, a neat little twinstick shooter.

I don't own the game at all yet, it would be me next purchase. I just learned that the entire thing is going to be remastered, so I might wait for that.

Oblivion and Skyrim have been the only computer games I've played for about the last 5 years, going on 10. There's a lot to do there, especially with mods, tremendous value for money.

(Also, I'm lucky if I can find a couple of hours a week to play a computer game.)

i bought a years worth of PS now tonight for $42 bucks. check out the days of Play it ends on Wed. you have to apparently go to the PS Store to buy it and not a real store which really is just plain stupid but what can ya do ya know? i was playing a little bit of Ratchet & Clank: Quest For Booty one i haven't played before when the stream cut me off, my guess it's not my connection as i tested it first before i bought it, with this pandemic going on there's no doubt a crap ton of people online so that doesn't help me at all ya know?

The old, old arcade game TARG.

Holy crap, this is one of the hardest games I've ever played.  You move a car around a 9X9 grid of squares, shooting really crafty enemies that try to ram you.  They take a different path to avoid your shots and try to find another way to reach you.  And when you're low on enemies remaining they speed WAY the hell up.  From time to time a bonus enemy emerges from a square and tries to ram you but they're not nearly as much a pain.  This one's way up there with DEFENDER on the challenge scale.

Beware Mortal Shell! Beware! Beware! Thirty wasted bucks, ten wasted hours. It's not a good game and it's definitely not another Dark Souls. And besides, you want water, go to the well. Dark Souls still rules!

Sea of Thieves.  It's a fun multiplayer pirate game depending on the server you get into you can have a chill time searching for treasure chests or end up in a fight with people that enjoy PVP.

For the first time in a loooooong time, I am playing absolutely no video games. Partly I needed a break, partly I've been unimpressed with anything I've seen released in a long time. (Maybe major titles are being held now for the next generation of consoles?) As a result I've tripled the time I've invested in reading.

I do imagine, though, before the end of the year I'll power up Dishonored and begin my zillionth playthrough of that great game. I've still never made it to the end without killing anyone, but I have done it multiple times with only one fatality: invariably that one early guard during the prison break. Shrug, a slaughterfest is frankly a lot more fun.

What is the best wave you've reached?

It's too bad they made the warrior waves so hard.

Been playing Cyberpunk 2077.  Luckily on PC, though my rig can't handle it as well as I'd like.  It still plays mostly OK though.

As far as the game goes...  It's good, but not incredible.  I'm like 20 hours in or so.  There's some very good writing and character stuff, the world looks very good, but the actual core gameplay isn't blowing me away, it's just "good".  I will say bugs and glitches have hurt the experience, even though on PC it's not generally game breaking.  Stuff like parts of the interface staying on when they're not supposed to (like the popup for picking up an item), textures taking too long to load in, weird physics, the run button randomly stopping working until you reload your save.  

Oh, and some of the systems are very poorly explained or oddly underwhelming - definitely feels like the game wasn't 100% done when they released it.  For example, the explanations of leveling and text messaging systems in the game are very half-baked.  Combat is also either extremely easy or you instantly die 95% of the time - I think I'm forever going to be of the opinion that leveling in an FPS/RPG almost never works very well.

At this point, if you haven't already bought it, I'd suggest waiting six months and then getting it.  You'll have a better experience and probably pay less.  I lucked out and got it cheap, so I can't complain too much.

Also, this is hard to explain and probably quite personal, but the character you're playing as, V, is definitely a defined character...  But it being first person, and the way this is balanced with your choices, I dunno, it doesn't feel quite right to me somehow.  Like you're HALF in control of your character, and it'd be better if it was more in either direction?  From what I've seen of the Witcher games (especially 3), with Geralt being even more defined in personality than V and the game being in 3rd person, it worked better.  Same with the Mass Effect games, though Shephard isn't as strongly defined of a character as either V or Geralt.

My retro trend continues, and I'm replaying Oblivion, which I think is the best Elder Scrolls title.


Title: Re: What Video Game are You Playing Now II?
Post by: ER on March 16, 2021, 12:26:17 PM
None. Zero. Zip. I been on a reading trend the last month and haven't turned on any gaming consoles at all since I last played Oblivion.

I haven't been impressed with anything new in a while and that's why my playing for the last year has been focused on classic titles I liked: Dishonored, Demon Souls, Dark Souls 1, 2, 3, Oblivion, Fallout New Vegas, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, No Man's Sky.

The last new games I bought didn't do it for me, one was The Outer Worlds, the other a Dark Souls 3 clone with excellent visuals and horrible internal design, and I am starting to wonder if the industry is in the doldrums, updating and relaunching old games or releasing clones of them under new names, since let's face it, all video games are spokes off the same few wheels, and no new genres have been introduced in decades.

I dunno, I figure what goes around comes around and I'll get back into playing eventually, but in keeping with the trend, the game calling my name these days is Dark Souls 2, a title I've been playing off and on since its 2014 launch, and which I've beaten up to NG5.

Ah, maybe Elden Ring won't suck, huh?

I recently finished all the major quest lines in Skyrim (main, companions, thieves, assassins, mages). I'll be cleaning up some of the minor quests (Daedric and others) then finally moving on to something else after years of nothing but Skyrim (and years of nothing but Oblivion before that). I plan on doing the Mass Effect series when the remaster drops, in the meantime I think I might try out the Halo series while I'm waiting for that. Not really attracted to first person shooters, but it's so universally beloved I think I should give it a chance.

I just beat Ghostrunner.  It's parkour cyberninja first person slasher.  Quite difficult.  I enjoyed it basically, but it has a number of pretty serious annoyances.  Biggest one - the game frequently checkpoints, but doesn't save your progress, so if you want to quit and come back to where you were you must finish the level.  Oh, and sometimes you'll die literally 100+ times at one checkpoint (you die in one hit and the game almost instantly restarts from the checkpoint), so you'll want to quit and come back so you don't have to replay 90% of a difficult level.  Ridiculous it doesn't save at all - there's no reason I can think of not to.

Still it was fun enough it's worth a play if the genre description piqued your interest and you can handle high difficulty.

I'd suggest looking at more middle and low budget games, especially indies.  You'll have a bit better luck.

Hi. New Board Member. Have been lurking for weeks and enjoying this awesome site, then finally registered to identify a movie in the "What Was That Film?" board. After a long absence from gaming (while adulting), I had a breakdown the past couple of weeks and played several things, spending the most time on one that I have quite a bit to say about (and may do later). But just briefly, I loaded up GTA4 last night for the first time since late December 2017... specifically the Biker Gang campaign from EPISODES FROM LIBERTY CITY. Once in the club, I did the same thing I probably did 4 years ago... immediately ran upstairs and played CUBED (or QUBED?) for an hour. It's a simplified and possibly even more addictive TETRIS. I may never make any more progress in any GTA4 campaign, but I'm likely to keep it installed forever just for CUBED. If only Rockstar would release it separately I could delete GTA4......  :twirl:


Title: Re: What Video Game are You Playing Now II?

Post by: M.10rda on May 17, 2021, 08:17:21 AM
Mine too - played it endlessly on the original Game Boy way back in the day and then had an old arcade stand-up in the arthouse movie theatre I managed 20 years ago (with access to the coinbox, so I would just cycle the same few quarters through it every night after closing). CUBED is TETRIS with just cubes (squares) instead of the full array of shapes. Two come down at a time in different colors - blue, red, yellow, green, purple, orange - and you need to link 4+ of the same color (in pretty much the same shapes as in TETRIS) in order to make 'em disappear. Easier than TETRIS, probably, hence I can play longer w/o eventually filling up the screen, yet like TETRIS, that endgame is inevitable. Shame that Rockstar never made it available on its own - but maybe that would constitute some intellectual property violation.  :lookingup:

If you're curious, Magical Drop is pretty fun.  I have Magical Drop 3 on a stand-up Neo Geo cabinet, though the cab is at my mom's house now.  Spanky's Quest isn't bad, but I barely remember it - I rented it when it was new.  Super Baseball Simulator... Well, it's an OK baseball game, but not my thing.  Ninja JaJaMaru-kun I'd never heard of either.

Oh, and I'm playing a Souls game myself - Dark Souls 3.  I've beaten it once before, as a sorcerer, now I"m replaying it as a melee class.  Great game, but I think it's my least favorite of the three.
