managed to order a 3060 from best buy today. if it ever actually shows up i will be building my first computer in about 15 years. what open world rpg games should i play if i havent played a video game besides fallout 3 and skyrim in a long time. i want to play rdr2. is cyberpunk 2077 any good yet? seems like no.

also chess is fun.

i haven't played it personally but i think people who like open world rpgs like the witcher 3

This is out today on Xbox, PSstore and Switch, $20USD. Someone hasn't pressed the right button on Steam as of this moment, you can buy the OST and the Artbook, but not the actual game :mad:

i remember this game because it was made by one of the guys from bungie, but i don't actually remember the game itself

oblivion is the best elder scrolls game. it's actually playable (unlike morrowind) and the environment comes in colors other than white and brown (unlike skyrim)

i've been having a lot of fun playing valheim with pals. we're up to the point where we consistently have iron and we recently made a harpoon which we used to drag a sea serpent onto land for its meat and scales



this game seems like too much on your own but it's a blast with 3 or 4 people

one of the people i play valheim with made it to the edge of the map and it turns out the world is flat so you get pulled over the edge and you lose all your stuff, stay away from the edge

i know it's passe, but i still really like overwatch and i play it often. i like territory control as a mechanic more than straight elimination like in apex legends, fortnight, pubg, or similar. i never played tf2, so maybe that's why i haven't outgrown it like many others have

overwatch is fun, but it's been awhile since i've played it. i should do that again!

it's very fun. i was super skeptical of role queue at first but it's the best improvement to the game so far and if you haven't played since they rolled that out a year or two ago, you should try it again

Kenny Logins posted:

it does not have a truly massive player base anymore but it is multiplayer and online (for now)

it mmo

the "massive" in mmo means you're interacting with a massive number of people at once, overwatch is 6v6

hmm sounds neat. maybe iíll pick it up again, loved to play zenyatta.

can i like start over in my casual rating (or whatever itís called)? i will steadfastly not play competitive, but itís been so long that i would be effectively new to the game.

i don't think you'll need to start over. i'm not sure how they made the transition from having a single number for qp matchmaking rating to one for each role, but i assume it will adjust your score internally after a few games in each role

never play competitive

i bought dorfromatik a few days ago and it's pretty fun. if you like the idea of a game based around placing carcassonne tiles and completing certain objectives (e.g. make a forest at least 6 tiles large) then you'll like this game, it's very chill

I've been playing Elder Scrolls Oblivion again lately and it's good. the graphics are nice and colourful, tons of flowers and nice green trees. the magic is better than skyrim, even a puny fireball sends an enemy ragdoll flying which is really satisfying

it's really worth going back to

oblivion is the best elder scrolls game

jesus WEP posted:

i liked that each town in oblivion had its own architectural style, i think skyrim went a bit backwards there where everything was either stone blocks or wooden huts

exactly, everything in skyrim is white or brown, oblivion has actual colors and regional personality/aesthetics

yeah i closed too many random spawn gates as i played through the game and then when it got to the bit of the main quest where you had to close one for every town it really felt like a slog.

agreed, when i revisit oblivion i just never visit sean bean and keep his amulet for the whole game so the gates never spawn

overwatch, you can "endorse" your teammates for "sportsmanship", "good teammate", and "shot caller". you can endorse people on the opposing team for just "sportsmanship". in the screenshot i posted, all five of my teammates thought i did a good job :shobon:
