I don't get it. Is there a meta-narrative with the supernatural stuff with Far Cry. I thought Brotherhood was about crazy fanatics. Or did I misread?

Also, the thread's new car smell is already gone.

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

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.

welcome to ubisoft, dude

a few hours ago I grabbed a random key from the gifting thread and it turned out to be Dark Matter, which bills itself as an "amazing remake of the classic arcade game Asteroids!" at first I was kinda jazzed because I worked at a retro arcade one summer in college with as many free plays as I wanted (awesome for sure, but the owner was a nightmare person, so that was a tradeoff) and asteroids was one of my jams, but Dark Matter... I mean technically it seems to play fine, but it's so cheap & ugly in art & sound design that I won't load it up again

this got me wondering, what is the best feeling and/or looking asteroids-y game on the market? free clones of the original abound, which are preferable to whatever dark matter is trying to be, but I'm curious if anyone's done something cool with the formula

maybe it's just aged its way out of relevance like all of us lol
obviously its this game i made

I just finished The Darkside Detective. Good game, but way too short for an adventure game. Night In The Woods is my new standard for how long a game story should be - this was about half of that.

I bought it for $10 - it's worth about $6 in terms of total enjoyment? The story, art, music, and gameplay are great but the game is just too short and too easy.

night in the woods took like a decade to make, it's a little unfair to expect that from everything

Wait? What? I thought the US can gift to whomever they want. I didn't have any trouble firing off some during the summer sale. Did something change?

people can only gift to friends who would pay around the same (or more) for the game. so you can't send things to, for example, Australians.

get berseria. it's my new favorite tales games and would've been my JRPG of the year on PC had nier automata not also come out this year.

for fun, read a story summary of it's quasi-prequel zestiria and also the issues it has as a game (loot, combat, etc) and see how berseria does literally everything better in every way and basically shits on zestiria constantly.

berseria is actually a prequel TO zesty so it doesn't matter and you should just play TOB yes

Thanks dad. My first post was meant as a joke, while my second was a genuine question. Lined up they look like I was trying to start poo poo, which wasn't my intent. I was actually curious as to what games from them Terminally Bored had played recently, because I find that typically tower jokes about Ubisoft games come from people that haven't really given one a chance in a while. Ubisoft has made a couple genuinely good games in the last few years, and I think people are doing themselves a disservice not to give them a shot, but if they've tried a recent one and didn't like it, I don't fault them for not wanting to try another.

here i'll help, i've played ubisoft's recent games and they're always padded with endless bullshit

Anyone have opinions on Grimoire yet?

Does the game made by the insane racist manbaby live up to the $40 price tag? Did Grimoire completely revolutionize gaming?? How much racist poo poo made it into the final game?

It's a game that would have been seen as a shoddy wizardry ripoff in the 90s. I think I might do a proper video review of it later

Objection, Operation Abyss is perfectly serviceable if you want relaxing dungeon crawling. It feels very similar to SMT1+2 (except with a set party) and is just pleasant to play. I mean, I've been using it as a wind-down game recently, and dig it a lot.

I hear Stranger in Sword City is better, though!

Don't forget Elminage, which is literally just Wizardry 5 again

Might and Magic 6 and 7 both actually have a hybrid toggle-able real time/turn based combat system which is really bizarre, but it works well once you understand when to use which one.

I did not actually play 8 or 9 so I don't know about those.

8 is basically the same as 7 and that includes the turn-based option yes.

- You can only level up outside of the dungeon? Restoring spell-points only happens outside of the dungeon? It's weird.

that's because they're based on wizardry 5, and that's how it worked in w5.

I think "thin" for the plot of most Wizardrys is actually being fairly generous.

well, i mean, 6 7 and 8 have plots with characters and stuff, and towns to explore, and things like that. it's just that in japan everyone loves wizardry 5 for some reason so that's the one they imitate

It's the 200+ hour reviews that have just childish, petulant reasons as their negative reviews that are funny to me. If it's some long-running game that has changes made that negatively impact the quality, sure, but often those reviews are hundreds of hours with the most spurious reasons possible. Playing something for like, twenty hours to see if you can find something to like? Sure. At some point it becomes unhealthy.

No Japanese VA? Who gives a flying gently caress. Game is abandoned and you didn't get your money's worth? You played 200 hours! Difficult to play with KB+M? That's valid for you, but why should that contribute to the overall metric for those of us with controllers...?

Empire isn't as bad as people say it is, especially not now. It's still one of the worst entries, but it was bloody ambitious and I can kinda respect it for that. Same with Rome 2, they tried something different from their standard formula but went the wrong direction. Their best games have always been the simplest though: Rome 1, Shogun 2 and Total Warhammer are all cut from the same cloth of simple is best. Shogun 2 and Rome 1 are my favourites mostly because of the brilliant soundtrack, nothing is more intoxicating than the victory music in those games.

Hopefully, that isn't the case, because he stil hasn't written the drat manual! Also, resolution issues are because those resolutions "did not exist a few years ago." Because, when I write I game over the course of decades, I know I put a checkmark on "tested resolutions" 5 years before release.

Like, seriously, this dude is slobbering all over his own knob for halfassedly releasing a broken game 4 days late and sometimes fixing a bug. Hinterland released four updates in the first four days that The Long Dark went live!

By the way, is there a thread for specifically for making GBS threads on this game? Bonus points if its a gathering place for "politically motivated activists...body surfing the edge of [a tsunami]."


It'd probably work at my bar trivia, but only as a tiebreaker, which follows Price Is Right rules.
