What Videogame(s) are you playing?


#1744

PUBG is so addictive,just make sure to also grab a few friends for the ride. It’s a blast!


#1745

Too many. But the ones I’ve been playing more frequently are Super Mario Odyssey, Sonic Forces, Crash N Sane Trilogy and the original Prey.


#1746

Tried out Mass Effect Andromeda (you can play the game for 10 hours for free) over the weekend and ended up buying it on Sunday. I remember the game being released in a poor state and getting a lot of bad reviews but they managed to patch it up quite nicely and the current version plays very well, nothing to complain about so far.


#1747

It wasn’t even as bad as ppl made it out to be anyways when it came out. Ppl just wanted to jump on the band wagon of shitting on the game at release. Lol


#1748

Started playing “Wolfenstein: The Old Blood”. I was afraid that the setting in a single castle might get stale, but so far they managed to switch stuff up on the regular to keep it feeling fresh.
I heard this was criticized for the thin story, but really, it just reminds me of the old shooters even more as a result (just you against the world).

Maybe it’s just me, but I also feel like the design of the different areas, with placement of armor and health packs is very conducive to fast paced gameplay and classic shooting action. Moreso than in “The New Order” that is,

Great atmospheric music as well.

Enjoying it a lot at the moment.

Prey’s a reboot? When did the other game come out?


#1750

It wasn’t a reboot, Arkane just used the Prey name - the game has absolutely nothing to do with the original :stuck_out_tongue:


#1751

Ohh that explains it,so they just re-used the title! A lot of people called it a complete reboot! Still,sad that they didn’t use the original IP. COULDA BEEN BOBA FETT MAN!


#1752

The first Prey (totally not connected to the modern one) came out waaaay back in the day. It was an FPS with aliens,to explain it all quickly. Then,they were set to release a sequel called Prey 2 in which you are a space bounty hunter,with roleplaying elements and ways to hunt down your target. Sounds great right?Well,Bethesda scratched the game because it didn’t meet their quality standards. Sounds odd coming from Bethesda you say?Oh that is because it is odd! They,in reality,just wanted to buy the studio they were working with,studio said “nah man” and they killed their game off. That’s why I was always a bit iffy about the new Prey,but since @Spodey just told me they simply reused the title I could give it a chance sooner or later…damn I was sure it was a reboot!


#1753

Mm, I’m liking Bethesda less and less these days… But yeah, Prey is definitely worth checking (Maybe buy it in the sale that’s going on on Steam now) and refund it if you don’t like it. My only complaint is that there isn’t a New Game +, and apart from achievements, I can’t really see a reason to replay it.


#1754

Alrighty,I’ll check it out. Might as well,I got this new gaming PC recently and I am looking for some games to test it. Let me tell you,btw,as a guy who has turned to PC Gaming only recently,finally getting to actually EXPERIENCE the fabled steam sales was…mah gawd it brings a tear to my eye…majestic


#1755

Finished this today. Really damned good. I think I enjoyed it more than The New Order, even though it’s shorter and with less of a story.
Well, with the exception of the final boss fight, mostly because I didn’t like the boss itself.

BJs inner monolog in these games could’ve easily ended up so bad and hacky, but it really comes off as poignant as fuck. His ending words in this game were poetry. :slight_smile:

Plus the end credits interpretation of “The Partisan” is outstanding.


#1756

I read that as the Patriarchy :sweat_smile:


#1757

Humble Bundle is giving away The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. Not exactly a great game from what I’ve heard, but hey, free is free.


#1758

Started playing Xenoblade Chronicles on N3DS, just to see if I’d like the second game just released on Switch. Pretty cool stuff so far, and a great soundtrack. Definitely think I’ll pick up the second game somewhere down the road. Have the Switch version of Yooka-Laylee to look forward to first, I think.


#1759

JRPGs are always solid on soundtracks,I mean it! I can’t name 1 JRPG that I played with a crappy one,but Xenoblade…oh that game holds a special little place in my hearth. I don’t regret buying the Wii in the past,and that game is one of the main reasons!


#1760

Guys I want your opinion,what’s your take on XCom 2? Because I was wondering wether to buy that or South Park:The Fractured But-Hole. I know it’s an unfair comparison but these two…I just don’t know which one to buy,right now…help?


#1761

If you’re into strategy and heavy planning type of games, then XCOM 2 is the one for you.


#1762

How much planning can I do? Does it get tedious or is it the fun kind of strategy where it pays off in the end?


#1763

It’s pretty straightforward in the easy and medium difficulties. However, in the hard ones, you’ll have to carefully plan researches, building facilities, prioritizing soldiers to be brought for different types of missions, choosing their skills, and several other things. It’s loads of fun and the game does a great job of keeping you on your toes. The game does not become tedious owing to the variety in mission types, and proper planning pays off very well in the end.

You could watch a few gameplay videos to get a feel of it. Oh, and you should also get War of the Chosen if you can afford it. It’s an amazing DLC!
