Played FFXV and I'm like level 30 and I would like to say I think Witcher 3 is superior in just about every way.

MGS5: gently caress youuuuuuuuu episode 29. That was so loving stupid. I basically sprinted around in circles the whole time while Quiet pinged off the Skulls. Once she had killed a couple, I could slow down and take enough time to aim a rocket launcher.

I tend to hate boss fights and MGS is no exception to the rule. One minute its a stealth game the next you're fighting weird, pseudo science super soldiers.

I agree dude. Even when the bosses are cool, I just wanna get on with my adventure. This same argument applies to Dark Souls series also. I like adventuring and exploring, not fighting giant scary things <>

The bosses aren't that bad in MGS1, but they get worse until V which has only one big one and I love it. V best Metal Gear.

Edit: And bosses are really the only things that make Extreme runs super difficult. Sure the game itself is made much more challenging but the bosses are brick walls of difficulty in those modes.

The core of dark souls is adventuring and getting items! I don't hate the boss battles but I'd rather just keep merrily adventuring.

I also just hate bullet sponge enemies in FPS games as a means of increasing difficulty and that's what most bosses are in FPSs.

the bosses of the original dark souls were pretty cool

finally beating ornstein and smough or whatever that duo's name is after like 150 tries was probably the most gratifying feeling of the entire game.

That being said I love the weapons in MGSV and any slight problems I have with boss fights is over shadowed by shooting dudes in the head with retro 80s era weapons while a helicopter over head is playing 99 luftballoons.

I'd suck dick for a FN FNC with silencer IRL.

I totally get that but I feel the same way as him. I have a ton of fun exploring and picking up cool loot and killing guys and kind of resent it when my progress is blocked by a boss.

Have you considered not attending the Captain's Career Course?


I've only played Dark Souls on PC so playing Bloodborne on PS4 and having such a huge drop in performance pretty much made me not want to play it.

A lot of modern console games look/run like garbage compared to PC games, more so than they seemed in the past anyway. But I didn't really have a good gaming PC until the past few years.

bah I'm pretty much at the limit of CPU power for my motherboard. there doesn't seem like much difference between my i5-4570 and what appears to be the "best": i7-4790 -- unless I'm missing something.

don't really feel like building a new computer so I guess I'll stick it out for another year or so.

no regrets on the gtx 1060 though!

Apparently the big fancy 20th anniversary Diablo 3 patch is just a regular adventure mode dungeon with a graphical filter on it, and you're only allowed to play it in January

did a bunch of work on the cabinet, just waiting for my new joystick springs

Bought a holster for the GunCon knockoff, need to figure out a decent way to mount it

got some spacers in and mounted the monitor a little bit better. Corner shots still suck with the TV but Point Blank and Time Crisis run great with my USB foot pedal so oh well

also planning on culling the gently caress out of the MAME romset i got, since theres way too many mah jong ROMS to sort through

sorry, arcade cabinet poo poo

i got new springs because the ones in there now are weak as hell.

i remounted my monitor to try and help with shooting in the corners with the lightgun I've got, it uses a Wii type of lightbar on top, and to calibrate it you shoot all the corners in the config to set the outside limits for when you shoot out of frame to reload. Sometimes if you're getting shot from the corner there's no way to hit him, but hopefully it works better now

I d/l'd a MAME fileset for the arcade games, and it's like 70% chinese knockoff or conversion poo poo. there's like 7k roms to sort through though and i dont have the patience to do it yet

I have a ton of MAME stuff on the raspberry pi 3 I bought. It's amazing what this little thing can push when you overclock it, add a couple of heat sinks, and put a fan on the case.
