  1. I'm always on the hunt for open worlds to explore at my own pace, from Test Drive Unlimited to Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Genre doesn't matter much (except strategy, I don't play those).
  2. Wasteland, Gothic (all of them!), Deus Ex and Fallout: New Vegas are the RPG's I can play over and over without seemingly ever tire of. 1. Wasteland: open world, skills that increase by usage, contemporary weapons.. all in 1988. Talk about ahead of its time. 2. Gothic: open world, ruthless difficulty, brilliant world design, exploration beyond belief. 3. Deus Ex/Fallout: New Vegas (I can't choose between them, sue me): Deus Ex had that player skills/modifiable weapons mix that I love. Not open world, everything else was perfect. Fallout: New Vegas has an abundance of everything, skills,
  3. I tried playing Breath of the Wild, but.. I'm a huge fan of open world games (I even buy games only because they're open world, like Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3) and I've played a lot of them over the years. I've also enjoyed some of the Zelda games before. But I could not get into Breath of the Wild. All the reviews have been absolutely raving about how good it is and how Nintendo is teaching everyone else how to build open worlds. In my opinion, Nintendo made almost every mistake a newcomer to world building could make: indistinct areas, instantly respawning enemies, finite vital resources,
  4. Since I like lists.. here's another one. https://www.tomshardware.com/picturestory/834-best-rpgs-of-all-time-community-picks.html I'm only posting it here because they (like me) consider Stalker to be an RPG. Take that, non-believers! Edit: This was supposed to be in the news thread, but it ended up here and I'm too lazy to move it.
  5. Meet my partner Lydia: Yes, hmm.. maybe I was a little harsh earlier, maybe Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is worth 6/10 after all.
  6. Still think Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is very pretty..
  7. OK, so I have been playing Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 for a while now and the first few hours seemed very good, bordering on great, and I kept wondering to myself why this game got such middling review scores. After a few hours of playing I understood it completely. The world is great, the presentation top notch, the fire fights and sniping are naturally quite good (although enemies spawn in when you get close to the levels they are in and not when you can reach then through your binoculars, which irks me a little) and even the quests/writing seems OK (more the quests than the dialogue actual
  8. I recently bought Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 for some reason. I wasn't expecting much, but so far I'm pleasantly surprised. After a slightly awkward introduction you're let loose in a big open world. An open world where you're equipped with a sniper rifle... The deer population will never be the same. I also think it looks very nice. Much better than I was expecting. The attention to detail is top notch and the interactivity is also quite good (although I have hit the edge of a canvas that stopped my sniper rifle bullet dead in its tracks once). I've only played for two hours y
  9. Apparently Pillars 2 is quite good: https://wccftech.com/review/pillars-of-eternity-ii-deadfire/
  10. Finished Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl. It's such a great game, only way it could have been better is if it had been fully open world and had a lot more equipment to choose from. Also longer.
  11. Since I have 400+ games in my Steam library it's easier to filter the currently installed games. I'm playing like.. two of those.
  12. They were and I loved all three of them (and even the fourth on PS2). But since we have viable 3D graphics now I was hoping for updated game mechanics, like Bethesda did with Fallout. I played those games despite having crappy 3D and movement, not because of it.
  13. I just remembered I backed Bard's Tale 4 for the $95 Premier Collector's Edition - Early Bard. Expected delivery October 2017.. hehe. I'm not regretting anything although I'm sure I'm gonna hate the game. I just couldn't play the Grimrock games, they felt so ancient, and this reminds me of those.
  14. I love that Obsidian probably haven't even noticed this thread on their own boards. Glad you guys can stand the filth over at the Codex and translate it for me here!
  15. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaW0tYpxyp0 Help, Rockstar has me wrapped around their finger again!
  16. I usually try to make my player character look as gay as possible. I wonder what that says about me..
  17. Strange. I also felt the need to replay Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl around the same time you did. I wonder what triggered it? Anyhow, I am using the Stalker Complete mod. That's all I need, slightly better graphics and less bugs. Also, I forgot how fantastic this game is. It's amazing how they managed to make the character progression feel better than 95% of rpg's despite not using any levels or experience points or even skills!
  18. Ryzen 2X00 series comes out in two days. https://wccftech.com/amd-ryzen-7-2700x-x470-review-out-beats-i7-8700k-in-7-10-game-tests/ It actually beats the Intel Core i7 8700k in 7 out of 10 games tested. This is kinda impressive if it's true, since the 8700k is the best gaming processor out there right now. We will see. I'm building an ITX gaming computer soon, I might opt for the Ryzen 2700 for that build. It's underclocked compared to the 2700X, but it's only 65W! That's kinda neat for an 8 core part.
  19. Wasteland 3 is on track: https://wccftech.com/wasteland-3-hitting-all-major-milestones/ I kinda liked Wasteland 2, but..it just didn't have the same charm as the first game for me. Also, it was a bit surprising that the game actually felt like a step back in modern design! I mean, the first Wasteland had an open world and lots of reactivity. Wasteland 2 was level based and felt much less reactive. The story was also stronger in the first, but that may have had something to do with you having to read a book to take part of the story..
  20. Imagine if music had to be removed from movies after ten years.. Why are games treated so badly?
  21. Fly a plane instead! https://i.imgur.com/Eqg1qP7.gifv Best flying physics ever!
  22. So, despite being able to shoot individual branches, set things on fire and fire a rocket into the sky that comes down again, it still wasn't fun to play? I'm shocked. Shocked, I say.
  23. So basically you bought a full price open world game knowing you'd hate both the driving mechanics and the combat. Kinda makes me wonder why you bought it? You were expecting an engrossing story perhaps?
  24. I'm on almost the same system as the topic starter and I would really not recommend getting any RAM for it. Just wait it out and purchase a new mobo and CPU/RAM combo when the prices normalize. I did the RAM upgrade myself (from something like DDR3-1600 to DDR3-2133) and from 6GB to 12GB, but it did practically **** all to my performance. I'm on a Core i7-970 and R9 290X system instead of Core i7-920 and 980Ti, but they're essentially the same.
