Is The Surge any fun, or is it just a lame sci-fi Dark Souls clone?

I'll check IVAN out some time!

Also yeah yeah roguelikes / not roguelikes hybrids - okay, I don't care about the distinction that much, but when I'm opening up the roguelikes category in my steam library I'm looking for top-down grid-based dungeoncrawls (Morphblade bends this but ehhh) with turn-based rpg-esque gameplay. Which is like, the narrowest of narrow definitions, which is why I added in the bonus category for FTL and Spelunky and so on. We can argue about what is a roguelike until the heat death of the universe, but I swear my aim in this list was to group up similar games in the genre so we're not having people look at DoomRL and Spelunky as the same thing when, uh, their core gameplay is definitely different.

Anyhow, I'm checking out Darkwood because i've never heard of it before and it looks cool, so thanks!

Can someone link IVAN?

It's apparently by the same people who made Lords of the Fallen, so I'm leaning towards the latter unless proven wrong.

Unlike LotF, Surge is GoodTM. It has a few problems, but none so egregious or game-breaking as LotF and it doesn't commit any grave sins throughout its enemy or boss design. Combat is more about actually dodging attacks, since your dodge and slide moves don't actually have iframes, and the part harvesting mechanic is handled well and remains engaging for the somewhat short (8-9 hours) time of your first run. It's not revolutionary, but if "Sci-fi Dark Souls" sounds cool it's probably the best one we're going to get for a while.

For now. You will end up spending 50 or so total when the expansion comes out later.

Don't make the mistake of installing a game but not playing it and running that Steam cleaner. It will delete all the set up files and you'll have nothing left and will need to redownload that game. Run it once so that it sets everything up and there's no problems.

Car Boys made this look loving rad. I'm just wondering, how are the controls? Easy to pick up?

Yeah it's easy, works a ton better though if you have a controller, I use a DS4.
It's hard to control because it's realistic to a fault, hitting a curb at 55 mph can crush your tire and destroy your wheel, slight clips can throw your whole vehicle into a spin, stuff like that. As a toybox it's very hard to beat.

I went through a lot of trouble trying to uninstall gamesave manager and am not sure it was a clean uninstall. The sheer amount of game saves it had, used up 120+GB on my SSD. gently caress that program.

Has anyone else used Depressurizer to create 1,000 categories (which sounds excessive but is actually extremely useful) and found that the "filter" function in Big Picture (and only Big PIcture) drops the frame rate to like 1 frame every 5 seconds? It is now useless in Big Picture, which puts me in a worse position than when I started.

Another question: Is there a program that will continuously record video for a specific duration, like how the Playstation 4 does it? I know I could use Fraps or whatever, but I want to set it so it only records the last, specifically, 20 minutes of gameplay and nothing before that.

Shadowplay can do up to 20 minutes. Some games (fairly rare) don't like it though so if you have performance issues, turn that off first.

I've had that Phantom Dust game installed ever since it was first released on the Microsoft Store, and it has never once been able to connect to my Live profile. This Live profile is linked to my Windows 10 installation, and it works properly in that useless Xbox program bundled in with Windows. Here's even a screenshot of the game being an rear end in a top hat right next to the crappy Xbox app being able to connect to XBL just fine.



The game just pops up a green Xbox Live window for a few seconds and goes straight to a Connection Failed message. I have no idea how to troubleshoot this crap. Hopefully, I won't just get laughed at for asking about a UWP game in the Steam thread.

I played it a bit during the free Alpha test thing. It's a neat game that's going to live or die on Streamers picking it up to make it popular because the playerbase is EVERYTHING in it.

Far Cry 4 Brotherhood (I'm still trying to make that happen):

I just played through a mission from Longinus that sent me into the Himalayas (a separate location you teleport to by E-ing a Sherpa).

Even though it was marked with an L on the map, it apparently didn't count for "seek and complete 1 Longinus mission (marked with an L) to be eligible for this upgrade".

The moment it was finished, three more missions popped up within walking distance.

The first one was from Hurk. It was about stealing a monkey idol... in the Himalayas.

And the next mission was about stealing a Blood Ruby from a mine... in the Himalayas. And was hard as gently caress, and probably intended to be completed later in the game.

One chance to guess where the final new mission wanted me to go.

...

The game loves to constrict what you can and can't do any time there's a mission happening, but it completely fails to suggest a reasonable mission / free roam progression. I know people hate tutorials, but introducing a new activity every few missions would have made sense.

Also, AJ is amazingly goddamned stupid and personality free.

There is a Steam Hardware thread that would probably be better suited. It's not very active, but I don't think you'd wait that long for a response.

You don't have to look at an incomplete painting on your wall. I know exactly why you're asking, the Shangri La sections are proof positive that gorgeous visuals aren't worth a drat if the gameplay is tedious and boring.

You get something very special that no Far Cry after FC1 provides: a boss fight.

I suppose the other Kalinag-inspired fight is also a boss fight of sorts, but that's still the same game so it doesn't count against that.

You're forgetting about all those awesome boss fights FC3 had. Like the guy you fight after he stabs you, and the utterly nondescript big bad business boss, and the giant evil demon, and the Australian rapist...

They kind of broke the pattern with that one though, because I'm pretty sure it wasn't a hallucination.

Launching Foxhole as a pay to play product felt like a questionable move but I guess it worked out for them? Managed to get more concurrent players than notoriously poo poo game Running With Rifles ever did.
