Don't worry, you aren't actually isolated in Alien Isolation most of the time. There is always an 8 foot tall barrel of fun banging around in vents that can't wait to meet you asap.

Have you heard? Sega celebrates its 60th birthday this year. Thatís why thereís a Sonic the Hedgehog costume in Fall Guys, and itís why Steam has a raft of free games for you to pick up between Thursday and next Monday.

The offerings include Streets of Kamurocho, which sounds like Streets of Rage using Yakuza characters. Kiryu and Majima team up to beat-em-up in a very well rendered, 16-bit tribute to both Sega franchises. Itís free to download and keep, but only from Oct. 17 to Oct. 19.

I love how in 2020 where movie adaptations are almost slavishly devoted to the source material, Paul W.S. Anderson is making a Monster Hunter movie that revolves around the US Marines and stars Milla Jovovich. He's the last director still trying to make things that fans will surely hate and barely recognize. It's so gloriously 1997.

All in all, I found it an enjoyable, if lengthy, time. Certainly not a goty experience, but a better-than-average one for sure.

I liked that game a lot, I also think it gets a harder reception than it deserves. One thing about it is that you can see the game actually get better and more interesting as it goes on, as though you can see the designers getting more thoughtful and skilled.

Also for real, shoutout to Boozer. I love how one of the game's main objectives is to cheer up your best friend Boozer, which you do by sticking a knife on his arm and making him feel manly again which seems pretty realistic for that kinda dude.

Also the bit where you graft an ice cream scoop to his arm so he can drive the truck I think that was a thing that happened right?

Okay, so Nier Automata. I am somewhere in Route C. When is this game supposed to get good again? I am so bored by everything in this game I honestly can't see what people see in it. I am seriously considering abandoning this playthrough but figure I should at least see it though. How far am I from the "end"?

Route C is the final route but why have you played it so far if you donít like it?

If you arenít enjoying it just punch out now, thereís nothing coming thatís gonna change your mind. Play something you enjoy instead, time is valuable.

Idk, this game is so highly regarded and even though I was very critical about it before playing it I feel I should experience it in its entirety in order to form a complete opinion about it. I dont mind so much if it is boring since I play games mainly to relax so I'm not complaining as such, merely commenting on my experience with the game.

If I am really close to the end I think I will just finish it

I like the game enough to have a N:A tattoo and even I wouldnít say ďjust keep going it gets better!Ē

Route C can be knocked out in under 10 hours if you just mainline it. Thereís one more ending to get after you finish but itís literally (minor spoiler) picking the last chapter from chapter select and making the opposite decision that you made for your first one so if youíre really going to get all the way there you might as well tack on the 10-15 minutes itíll take to do that and see Ďeverythingí.

to answer your original question Fridge Corn I think i battered through C, D and E in the same day without any trouble, I was kinda rushing through for the ending though although that sounds like it'd suit you too

its a weird game honestly, I cried at the very ending because it had such an emotional impact but also it has so many flaws that put me off playing till the end, the combat is boring and rudimentary, the character design is pervy in a way I don't care for, its kind of an ugly game, it doesn't feel particularly great to play in the way platinum games normally do but it did enough clever things to make it interesting

Definitely a prime example of a game being better on easy, at least for me personally, people go on about the chip system but I found it easy to totally ignore, its nothing like the combat in a Bayonetta or a God Hand which is kind of what I wanted going in

Yíall are crazy, I can just turn it on and run around and drift on hogs while taking in the beautiful music and scenery. I think movement feels great in it, and Iím glad they updated the Nier Replicant remaster to feel similar. Also I just looked up what ending Z was and youíre a monster.

Fridge Corn, you should play Outer Wilds next, very curious what you would think of it.

I just finished Vigil: The Longest Night and I'd say give that a look if you enjoy hard AF 2D Soulstroidvanias and one indie studio's quest to make a Legally Distinct Bloodborne. I think it's 25bux and my first playthrough was around 20 hours, missing quite a few optional bosses and zones. Good music, encounter design, and some pretty fun combat with weapons ripped straight outta BB.

It seems to me like a lot of adaptions like this shove in some US army dudes to function as viewpoint characters for the audience, which is pretty hosed up in itís own right and also really patronising. And boring.

Hell yes, Iím excited to see what you think. I mean I love Nier, but Iím mostly joking when I reply dismissively to people who say they arenít enjoying the game, and I can totally understand why itís not for everyone (even tho I do think itís weird/interesting enough that even people who arenít enjoying a lot of it still end up playing all of it). But I can honestly recommend Outer Wilds to anyone who posts here, without any reservations or caveats, because itís truly a special game and utterly unique and also beautiful, especially for a very small indie devs first game. Donít look up anything about the game tho, i donít want to say why, but the game is very Ďspoilerableí because of the nature of the core mechanics and how you progress in the game.

Not enough ppl itt have played Outer Wilds, it deserves Yakuza/Nier/Bloodborne status in here, itís one of the best games of the decade, easily.

I bounced off The Outer Wilds so hard. I found the flight mechanics to be very realistic but very unfun because of that. It was frustrating just getting around the environment at all times. The story was good, but the game was not.

I don't get The Outer Wilds. It crashed to desktop twice for me then when I gave it a 3rd chance the second I walked up to an NPC and had to read subtitles for a fake language I knew it was the sort of game I wouldn't enjoy. Not for me Clive.

Idk if this was directed at me, but I mean yeah I agree. I donít like Breath of the Wild or The Witcher 3 or Spider Man, but i know that theyíre good games. Just like I think Nier is an incredible game, that I can completely understand not enjoying for the same reasons that made me think that the game wouldnít be my thing when I saw trailers and other promotional stuff for the game.

I also just meant that with Outer Wilds, i can recommend it without having to say Ďi know the androids are wearing heels and short skirts and are hot, and itís pretty anime looking, and Emil looks kind of like a Tim Burton design, but it actually is good!

I think I was always going to finish nier automata and my saying I was considering otherwise was more commentary on my thoughts while playing it than anything else really. I don't care about people thinking my opinion on the game would be invalid if I dont finish the game but it deserves a fair shake and perhaps the ending of the game will alter my opinion on the work as a whole.
