  1. Last game I pre-ordered was Fallout: New Vegas. I think? Point is, it was a long time ago.. but I'm tempted again.
  2. FINALLY an Obsidian game I can enjoy again. How long has it been since New Vegas? Feels like forever. I can barely deal with isometric anymore (and I never liked the Infinity engine games to begin with) so this is heaven sent for me. YAY OBSIDIAN!!
  3. Please let it be open-world and 3D again! New Vegas was so good! I don't really care about the setting to be honest.
  4. I actually went ahead and bought Hellgate: London on Steam. It was only something like $8! I remember reviewing this game back in the day. I remember the graphics looking bad and the game running like ass, but.. holy crap does it look bad now! Strangely enough my eyes got used to it after like five minutes and now I'm having fun again. It's ugly and it's janky but it's also fun. NO RAGRETS
  5. I've been playing Destiny 2 for a while now (because I'm a cheapskate) and I'm impressed. Impressed by how polished it is, how well it runs and how pretty it looks. Gameplay wise though.. I'm up to level 16 (I think) and I'm still not sure what to do. I am getting all these glimmers and uh.. engrams?.. and.. other stuff but I have no idea what they are for. I'm free to teleport between.. worlds..? Maybe? Through an awkward interface with a ****ty map.. and sometimes I find missions (which are of course called something else entirely) on that map that I can try to find on foot later. My equ
  6. I "bought" Destiny 2 from that Blizzard thingy (since it's free and all) and I must say it's a lot better than I expected it to be. And I haven't even noticed any micro transactions of any kind. I had this mental picture of the game being riddled with them.
  7. Only problem with Elex for me is that it has absolutely no replay value. I know there are three factions, but the difference between them is too small for me to bother. The map was very cool to explore and clearing it out after you've gotten powerful was immensely satisfying. But I've seen everything there is to see and done every quest there is to solve, so.. yeah. But I loved it (not as much as Gothic).
  8. Delta Force and Delta Force 2 were super cheap for a while there on GOG.. had to get them.
  9. Ok, I might have spoken too soon in regards to Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The game is growing on me. It's still too obvious and there are wayyyy too many alternate routes into/out of everything (every apartment seems to have one lock and a thousand vents/windows/cracked walls/etc.). But I'm further into the game now and some of the things I've been finding haven't been completely obvious. There are some kind of cool world building going on here.. At least I'm having fun poking around everywhere! I also had a weird "out of memory" crash bug, but that was easily solved by increasing the l
  10. Started up Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (because I finally finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which I disliked..) and I'm surprised at how good it looks. Human Revolution had an art style that really irked me. Everything felt so.. clumsy and wrongly proportioned (big city streets being like two meters wide, absolutely impossible to fit two cars on). I'm only at the beginning of Mankind Divided but it already feels better aesthetically. One thing though: none of those games feel like Deus Ex games to me and I'm not sure why. I think it has to do with world building. The original Deus Ex felt l
  11. Just to add some fuel to the fire: https://wccftech.com/microsoft-close-buying-obsidian/
  12. My storage was flooded a few weeks back and my old Xbox 360 was drowned in muddy water. I've let it dry until tonight when I tried starting it up.. and it worked flawlessly. I'm impressed. Anyhow, to see if it still could read discs I started up a game of Red Dead Redemption. Boy did that game age! I remember it being sooo damn beautiful, but.. now it's kind of low res textures and jaggedy models everywhere. And stiff npc eyes staring at me. It's weird. I clearly remember it being the best looking game I had ever seen back in.. 2011? I really didn't expect it to age that violently.
  13. Since I backed Bard's Tale 4 on Kickstarter I got remastered versions of the original games (lhough 2 and 3 are coming at a later date) in the package. Yesterday I downloaded it not thinking much about it. I mean, I loved those games back in the day but that was before the 3D revolution. I didn't have high hopes. Spent probably an hour just rerolling characters. I had forgotten how much I enjoy the stupidity of rerolling the perfect char through sheer stubbornness. Then I went into Skara Brae and died a bazillion times before I even got to level 2. Apparently I had forgotten how much more
  14. You're probably joking, but I actually tried replaying it a few years ago and it was surprisingly playable still. It ended up being on the right side of the WASD+mouselook-controls revolution. Games released the same year or slightly before that still had those horrible control-the-camera-with-your-keyboard controls. Those are impossible to play today, for me (I'm looking at you, Underworld-series). I know the resolution is locked to something like 640x480 but that was strangely enough easy to get used to, even if my eyeballs bled a little for the first few hours.
  15. Just another example of how thorough TooLeetForYou is with his opinion. Check out why they actually did it: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-08-11-pete-hines-defends-bethesdas-legal-threat-on-amazon-marketplace-game-seller Spoiler: guy tried to sell a game he bought as "New". But there's no way for anyone to confirm that the game is actually new (which means it still has all the digital codes etc. intact) so Bethesda wants him to sell it as "pre-owned". That's it. It's that simple.
  16. So.. I recently helped a friend who is kind of new to PC gaming to install Fallout 3 Steam Edition on his Windows 10 machine (not entirely straight-forward because the game demands Windows Live or something and that doesn't exist anymore). After getting it to run I got a weird urge to play it myself so I bought the Fallout 3 GOTY package from GoG and it just worked out of the box. Yay GoG. Anyhow.. to my amazement Fallout 3 is a much better game than I remembered! Sure, the start as a baby, Three Dog, the subways and the Intelligence dialogue options still grate, but.. since I already know
  17. It¨s rough but I loved it. Just.. don't do everything the game offers or it will be a grind. Just concentrate on the fun parts.
  18. It's an underrated gem. Really though? No-one on this forum has ever said anything bad about this game (except that whiner on this forum who has never said anything positive about anything ever) and it has a metacritic score of 80+. I think it's actually overrated on these forums. I bought it because of all the hype on here and I'm underwhelmed. For some reason the entire game feels like one endless scripted event from. You walk from level to level, ever sucking up resources, ever shooting/fighting the same three or four black blob enemy types. Every once in a while the game lets you
  19. I'm lucky; today's game trends seems to coincide with my own tastes. I like open worlds and first person view. I've noticed that genre takes a backstep to those two criteria so I have a lot to look forward to. I play everything from Ghost Recon: Wildlands to The Division to Elex to Skyrim/Fallout 4 to Dying Light to anything with those two criteria basically. They allow me to have fun in any game it seems. So.. Next GTA Red Dead Redemption 2 Anthem (probably..) Dying Light 2 Cyberpunk 2077 Assassin's Creed Odyssey Next Elder Scrolls Next Fallout Starfield Star Citizen ..and so o
  20. It's an entry level computer that will do well at 1080p. You will soon run out of space on that tiny SSD though so you might as well buy an X TB secondary drive at the same time. Other than that it looks good for that price. Oh, and this post should have been in the junkyard.
  21. I bought Prey. Started in an apartment with a jammed glass door to the balcony. Spent a few minutes trying everything I could to break the glass to get outside to no avail. A few minutes later my only option to further the plot is to.. break the glass and exit through the window. Great start..
  22. So many funny stories about Ovi's celebration. Russians really do know how to drink..
  23. Uh.. did you miss Fallout: New Vegas? Because if you did.. boy, do you have something to look forward to!
  24. I wonder if there will be driving in the Cyberpunk game? I mean, we had that horse in Witcher 3..
