finished control. the end was fun. I'm glad I didn't read anything about what the ashtray maze was because it was a very cool surprise

not sure if I'm gonna do the dlc. i really need to play outer wilds next because my friend wrote it and it's been out for like 2 years

nice, i really liked that game. did you get the movie camera SCP(OoP or whatever)? worth the time to get.
outer wilds is super sick but it probably will suck you into a marathon of it

just googled and apparently it's in the first DLC so i haven't yet. i didn't do any side quests really, but i might go back and try to do more of that stuff, we'll see. the launch mechanic feels so, so, so good, it's one of my favorite combat abilities in any game

my favourite thing about the beeswax in the ears trick is that it's the sole reason that there's a command to clean out your ears.

at any other point in the game, using it just tells you that your ears are already clean! it's great

haha the movie camera sidequest is amazing.


the Foundation DLC is solid but is more of the same. The Alan wake tie-in is amazing and has a lot of great segments to it.

Starting ff7 remake and wanting to choose Classic difficulty b/c I'm old. However it says this mode is on par with Easy which sounds weak.

Advice?

I tried normal and classic. I think classic is better so far, but it's kind of hard to tell (I only played the intro while the rest of the game downloaded). You can switch back and forth any time so I figure I'll experiment.

if you want less stressful may i recommend immortals fenyx rising which is equivalent to methadone if breath of the wild is heroin

it's just you checking stuff out and maybe solving puzzles or fighting while best buds prometheus and zeus work on their vaudeville act together

thats p great. i wonder if theres any commands that are basically red herrings to throw you completely off

my current character has an impressive 36 PV now at lvl 12, but pretty much no defences against any status effects yet. my stomach feeling tells me he's gonna get destroyed b/c of that soon

update: he did in fact not die from those things at all. turns out there's something called 'the ultimate doppelgänger"

I just want to say that the FF7 remake is absolutely gorgeous so far. The little details make the world look so realistic and lived in.

The Last of Us Part 2 seemed like it took forever to beat, but I think that was mainly that I suck at stealth and the combat was a bit wonky for me as I can't seem to aim well in a lot of Naughty Dog games. Happened to me in Uncharted as well. Maybe it's just me.

Game is depressing as hell though, jesus

Update on FF7 remake: I absolutely love it so far. Way better than the last FF game. The combat is a little janky, the way stuff is displayed and to some extent the control scheme, but that somehow feels really right for a final fantasy game. Classic difficulty/mode is the better option. I tried Normal and got my rear end kicked by a mini boss. Remembering to cast cure and guzzle potions, plus block and dodge while swapping between characters is really kind of a pain. Combat on Classic may be a little too easy, but at least it's fun! Anyway I'm really enjoying it and I think they did a great job with it. Screw all the nerds who cried "my childhood memories! " and just wanted a clone of original game with upscaled graphics. This is better.

There's a mode where you can play just the stealth/combat sequences and a guy who played them back to back said it took around 3 hours. It's kinda wild how much of the game is exploration, puzzles, and cutscenes.

I liked the game overall but the story hits a point where you I wished certain characters would learn their lesson already.

Well yeah, but honestly..



So recently I got back into wow after a very long break and am playing with the EU goon squad, who are all great (this rhymes)
Do we have any yobbers still or again playing it? I'd love to play with you

I used to play on sporeggar(spelling?), an EU RPG server and had a lot of fun until it just sort of faded away when freinds stopped playing and I moved a lot.
I spent most of my time filling in the map and listening to the music.

I was thinking of playing again as long is it were casual weekend play or something.

I am so thoroughly addicted to playing the FF7 remake. I told myself, nope, I'm not going to play it tonight. I'm going to give myself a break. But you know what? I'm gonna loving play it.

13 Sentinels is extremely anime and very good. Takes a while to complete just the tutorial, it has 13 main characters and it's a mashup of visual novels and mechwarrior games. The plot is just bonkers.

And it's a Vanillaware game so it looks gorgeous to boot.

I have had an active WoW account since the beta in 2004 but I barely log on.

GaG, let me know when you start playing and I'll try to join you. I think I have a couple of those max level boost things somewhere...

yeah i hear you but that's also someone id recommend this game to. theres no pvp aspect, you can chop your buddy and it doesn't hurt nobody. you gotta work together and make food and a base and stuff to fight monsters together. they actually made a videogame here instead of a digital bucket for crabs to kill eachother in

Oh no! That must've been a big surprise. The developers said the game would only be the start of the game back at announcement but the game title on its own doesn't sound like anything less than a full remake so I totally understand feeling shorted.

I had a bunch of fun with ff7r but I really really didn't like the entire ending section nonsense. I hope it doesn't become a Kingdom Hearts thing where we get games titled 2.8 final chapter prologue or anything like that.

Well it's a SquareEnix game, so...
Yeah I didn't read any press about it at all. I just knew they did a remake, and then there it was as the free PS+ game this month. I did wonder how they were going to fit the entire game world and story into the 80gig download when what I was playing was so richly detailed. Anyway I loving loved playing it, it's probably the best modern/non sprite Final Fantasy game I've ever played. Now I just have to wait for the drip feed of next chapters to come get released and then come on sale, because screw you Square I ain't paying $200+ to play this whole game.
