Woke up early and started my new Xcom 2 run with War of the Chosen. It is already off to a great start, and I was able to bond a couple soldiers and great some spiffy propaganda posters for them. :)

Seriously you should all stop what you are doing and play this instead. I've been trying to bond snipers and I don't think you can.  It's great to be playing a game where choices matter. There are these two factions introduced early on and you get their heroes. They have dialogue and party banter and one of them died. Yes, dead, gone. They would have been immortal by virtue of the plot in any other game.

I have one overly aggressive grenadier who has a chance of firing normally when set to overwatch. I have a compulsive reloader who may just decide to reload as her second action if her magazine isn't full. And I have a phobophobic sniper who has a chance to panic when others around him panic.

 

My medic panics when people around her panic. Kind of defeats the purpose of a medic. :(

Lol. The more DRM, the more reason to say "Shove it in your singularity" to the publisher...

Like I said, the vast majority of people who refund it for the DRM are just buying on console. The DRM isn't enough to stop the sales.

If you haven't played it yet, or haven't played the original Sonic games then you won't understand.

There's alot of stages and secrets/sirprises which aren't shown in that 2 minute clip. It's basically 6 hours of quality 2D Sonic.

I'm not playing it, but I'm sorely tempted to give Deadly Premonition a second try. Anyone a fan?

 

I'm watching Twin Peaks and find myself desiring something similar.

My Reaper lady is now afraid of the Chosen, and may panic if they are in LOS :p
I am considering building an infirmary to get rid of the nega-traits.

Apparently Bethseda unleashed their paid mods crap.

If even one Failout 4 mod no longer works, I'll uninstall and never buy another Bethseda title on release.

Bethesda needs to stop making rpg crap and focus on the only games they're actually good at making... fps and horror.

3 drm's



Whoah! That is a lot!

 

 

But more DRM means it's a better game, right? :biggrin:

Deadly Premonition is Twin Peaks in video game form. I couldn't handle the gameplay, though. I'm tempted to actually just watch a let's play. The mood was spot on.

I can't take people seriously who base a game's quality off of the drm that is or isn't behind the game or the method of which the dev/pub choose to apply it :p

I will always be the person who plays the game for the content and the game itself and base the quality on that aa any gamer should.

By the way... it only has 2 drm's now. One already got removed (Goose) Only Steam and Denuvo remain although you can bet that Denuvo will be removed shortly. As for a GoG release, it probably won't happen.

Nah, they need to keep making TES games.

 

And I guess Fallout too.

Started War Of The chosen as well.Seems a little less optimized than the base game, and I see complaints about poor performance and crashes in the steam forum.Bonded a first fire-team. A second pair of soldiers is ready to bond as well, but their compatibility isn't the highest, so not sure if I should. Wish there was a manual to better explain things than the in-game pop-up.New maps are neat, even if creating silly situations where the skyranger flies into tunnels to pick you up :)Some of the new mission scenarios are also pretty nifty. The Lost work great. Though apparently they ignore advent (or so I hear).Having read the novel, I am glad to see the lost added. Some of the world building that had been in the novel was sorely missing from the base game.


I feel it performs far better that vanilla, but as usual it depends on you setup.

I had a great time so far, I did encounter a crash today. I didn't found a way around it just yet. Might have to reload geoscape and try to restart the mission. A shame as it was rather tough fight - supply raid with a chosen and lost. When I kill chosen and lost turn kicked in game constantly crashes.

For me it was fine the first few hours, but the more I play the worse performance gets. Especially the Chosen cause lag. It feels as if there was a memory leak somewhere or a problem with the savegames similar to the Fallout3/NewVegas games.

Overall the game is a lot more fun. It is a shame the "integration" of DLC removed the Shen's Gift story mission and you can now simply build SPARKs.
The Chosen can be really annoying, but overall they are an improvement over the DLC boss aliens.
The Lost are a lot of fun.
The new missions are fun.
The Chosen are even more talkative and annoying than Central :/

You know, it's a small thing, but I really like the Propaganda Announcers after the missions.

 

I did have a crash last night, but it was on a mission where I kind of screwed myself anyway (I keep forgetting that I don't have True Concealment, so engaging the enemies straight away isn't a bad thing, hence I ended up trying to fight 3 pods at the extraction zone on a VIP rescue.)

I want to play XCOM2 but SWTOR is doing double CXP so I'm trying to grind while the iron is hot.

Ooh that's a game I'd love to be a fan of, but it seems with increasing power of my hardware, Deadly Premonition somehow manages to run more and more poorly.
