  1. i've been enjoying Outward coop. Slightly janky, but the survival/exploration is quite fun. We just made it to a new town, but our loot chest is in our hometown so we can't just dump all our stuff, and we're too broke to afford an inn, so vagrancy it is!
  2. I haven't played singleplayer games much these past few years, but 2020 has been special and I've played a few. Quick impressions! -Doom Eternal: Probably my favorite FPS, the fast-paced combat is just exhilarating. -Sekiro: Played this right after and surprisingly I loved the combat even more. This game really really impressed me. Exploration was enjoyable too. -Into the Breach: This little turn-based gem is freaking awesome! I love how the game mostly deals with input randomness, but allows you incredible control by letting you know exactly how the enemy will act and in what order, giving a lot of depth in what is ultimately a pretty simple system. -Slay the Spire: Very cool deck-builder roguelike. The various characters added some nice variety, but ultimately this didn't have as much lasting value as some of the other games for me. -Steamworld Heist: I was pleasantly surprised and impressed by this one. It turns out that 2D squad tactics with Scorched Earth/Worms-aiming combines very nicely. -Ori & the Will of the Wisps: I already loved the first Ori, so I knew I'd like this one. It definitely meets my expectations. Fantastic metroidvania with great exploration and traversal, and also an audiovisual fest. -Disco Elysium: I was enjoying it (nice writing!) until I got sidetracked and lost interest. Getting back to an RPG I've put on hold is very very hard for me. Or maybe I don't have the patience or constitution for RPGs anymore. I dunno.
  3. I regret backing this before Torment Turds of Numenera came out. I feel like I've been duped. At least I might give the BT trilogy a try.
  4. Has anyone had weapons disappear? I equipped the Dauntless in one of Barik's weapon slots and now it's gone, yet I can still see its artifact ability on his skill list in combat. Same happened to Verse's artifact bow (though I reverted to a previous save that still has it, but no such luck for the Dauntless) and one of KiS's hammer (no big deal), so I know it's happened to multiple weapons. Weird.
  5. I'm enjoying Tyranny a lot more than PoE so far in terms of worldbuilding/lore/writing/pacing.
  6. Colour based puzzles? Does that mean game over for colour-impaired people like me? There is a color-blind mode in the options.
  7. I preordered. 1) It's Obsidian, 2) Steam's generous refund policy basically gives you a 2-hour demo in case it turns out bad.
  8. I won't pledge yet because of Fig, but I wouldn't worry too much about multiplayer. D:OS has shown it works really well in a party-based turn-based RPG. For those who haven't played D:OS, all it really means is that the party is split in 2, whether in combat or exploration/roaming town and talking/etc. You don't lose out on ANYTHING at all by playing it singleplayer. All it provides is a nice option for people who like coop. For the record, I adore D:OS's coop, but again, it loses nothing if played singleplayer (if anything, that probably helps you pay attention to the story)
  9. Starting a new session of Super Metroid. I realized I never actually finished it last time I played it - got sidetracked.
  10. I'm still holding out hope for that janitor RPG. The stuff of dreams!
  11. Yay MCA! D:OS has a good co-op mode that was well-implemented, but it was NOT by any means meant to be played co-op only, with singleplayer as an afterthought. For combat, you have a party of 4. It's a turnbased game, you can easily do it singleplayer. All co-op does is split the task btw 2 players (2 characters each). Co-op was a blast, but it is completely unnecessary to enjoy the stellar combat system. Seriously, this is my favorite TB RPG combat system ever. For non-combat/dialogue/roleplaying, the coop is unnecessary and gimmicky. Yeah you can select opposing choices in dialogue and do rock-paper-scissors, big deal. All the good parts in D:OS can be enjoyed singleplayer. Coop just happens to well-implemented, and a a great feature for people who want it. For those who don't care about multiplayer, coop does not actually add anything, and the game is not diminished by playing it singleplayer
  12. Hey nerds, help me pick my next RPG. My backlog is out of control. Blackguards Dead State Might & Magic X Shadowrun Dragonfall Wasteland 2
  13. I like to describe Paradox games as history/political simulators rather than RTS or TBS (it's a pretty different focus than what those genres usually entail). I was completely addicted to EU3 (Complete - no way am I playing a Paradox game vanilla) back in the day, but ever since getting into Crusader Kings 2, the extra layer of political scheming and lineage preservation just makes EU feel like baby's first Paradox game. Maybe I'm being unfair, but that's why I haven't been even remotely interested in EU4 :/ ---- On a sidenote, my latest addiction is Wargame: Red Dragon multiplayer. Since the recent patch, the game is feeling fresh again. It's such a fun Cold War RTS/wargame that does away with many of the things I dislike from RTS. Napalm is the best.
