I didnít dislike outer wilds but I donít really like it much either. :iiam:

I might try it in VR to see if the extra immersion helps

i have never heard anyone express a middling opinion about outer wilds before ever haha, either they bounce off it completely or they get totally obsessed and finish the game in a couple of days

I tried playing some skyrim yesterday and my mind completely blotted out how bad the combat is in this game. Also you need to download a mod to get rid of the cinematic kills where you either are instantly dying to a monster or instantly killing one.

wow usually when something gets a 'remaster' it's a good polish to the graphics and maybe some patches to gameplay for any rough edges, stuff like some of the old point & click games where you get a whole new art style you can toggle on and off.

but this

no poo poo apart from the slight change in color grade, I spotted

+ less rain
+ halos around oncoming headlights
+ aliased trees
+ world reflections on car surfaces

and that's it. Well worth laying out forty bucks.

I also had a middling opinion - i think i didn't quite get sucked into the atmosphere like I did with Subnautica, or particularly care about the story. It did seem cool but I was never like " wow i wish i was playing outer wilds right now"

after sixteen years I reactivated daoc this past winter, right before covid. i found some rando guild that kind of sucked but i played a few hours a night

when covid hit i was super traumatized and scared and didnt touch my game computer for two weeks and ended up just cancelling to save a billing cycle on my two accounts



don't play MMORPGs, kids.

I bet you can ballpark the exact week I quit from my character last names lmao

[ASK] Me About OS/2 WARP
mistress of the battlegrounds. love that poo poo.

Problem with daoc is the endgame (level 50 but you keep getting abilities due to player kills but on a log scale basically) has no upper limit and because you can get higher ranks past that so fast now, you go out with a realm rank 6 character like all my 50s and basically get insta vaporized by nerds that play 40/week and are all realm rank 11-13 which confers huge advantages on them. I got tired of it

holy poo poo daoc still exists. i remember playing that when mmos were just starting to become a thing, long before wow. i got it as a gift, and the box had a free month, so i played for that month but never actually paid for an account. i can easily see my life going in a very different direction if i had gotten into mmos because boy am i exactly the sort of person who would get addicted to them

are those actually official servers? i'm assuming those are long gone and the only place to play now is some tiny community-hosted poo poo that only maxxxximum mmo nerds would ever find out exists

[ASK] Me About OS/2 WARP
Yeah they 'clustered' all the servers to one environment, so everybody goes and PvPs (or RvR in daoc parlance) in the same zone, but there are eight housing zones or something and your house only exists on Ywain4 or whatever.

The big issue for me is that it's US primetime only. Back in the early 00s there was a 24/7 stream of activity, rotating between the euros, the NA crew and au/nz. Now nobody logs on until 5pm Eastern and everybody logs off at 10pm Pacific. Rest of the time its like 10 nerds hanging out powerleveling in Lyonesse during business hours. Zero activity if you aren't a prime time evening player.

[ASK] Me About OS/2 WARP
if anybody wants to gently caress around with daoc you can sign up a free account and I'll powerlevel you to 50. it'll take about 12 hours real life time over a couple days and will be tremendously boring as we watch my cabalist pet shred pygmy goblins, but i'll get on chat and tell jokes and bullshit with you.

yeah i can see literally no difference other than the color grading

also that's a dumb one to remaster. i would prefer most wanted (2005), which had all the tuner poo poo and the corny story with FMV that made it fun.

i think the high water mark for remakes/remasters is tomb raider: anniversary, personally. that is just polished as hell
