  1. What? I think both Trump and any potential Democrat candidate likely hate a good portion of the American populace. And honestly? That attitude is part of the problem. We're all just people, and those you disagree with aren't necessarily bad, evil or stupid, just like those you agree with aren't necessarily good, or brilliant.
  2. It did come out on PC, but I seem to remember reading it was pulled from sale because of music rights. The Steam page still exists, but it is no longer for sale at the request of the publisher, apparently. There are some copies on Amazon, though.
  3. I'd be satisfied if the next president didn't hate a significant portion of the American people. But, as you say, such as person could never get nominated. It's sad how much worse things seem to have gotten over the last 3 years.
  4. Yeah, I'll probably get suckered into backing PF:WOTR as well. Though I probably won't play it until the turn-based mod is updated for it.
  5. Nvm...stupid quotes not working right
  6. Honestly, mods. That's the main thing for me. Well, that, and trying to actually aim with a controller is pretty much impossible for me. I've considered getting a PS4, because there are some games that I'd like to play, but there's no way I could play most of them (Bloodborne being the one I could play) with a controller. I'm not opposed to controllers (I use them for some games that play better with a controller) but since I didn't grow up using them, trying to use them for anything that requires speed and accuracy just isn't something I can do (honestly, I'd probably have better luck with a joystick, and it's been years since I've used one of those.)
  7. I picked up XBox Game Pass to play The Outer Worlds, and so I've played a bit of Gears 5, which isn't bad, but the open world part seems kind of pointless. They clearly DGAF about explaining what's going on story-wise to anyone new to the series, however. I've never played a Gears game before, and while there was a "Previously on Gears" bit at the beginning, none of it meant anything to me. Gears 1 and Gears 4 are available as well, so maybe I'll try those at some point (I got 3 months of Game Pass for $1, so I've got time.) Also tried Battle Chasers: Nightwar, which I'd heard good things about, but I didn't realize it was a game that involved grinding dungeons repeatedly, so not sure how much more of that I'll play. Played a bit of Bridge Constructor Portal as well, which is interesting, but seems a bit too easy (other versions of Bridge Constructor I've seen had limits on how much you could spend on your bridge, which seemed to make it more interesting.) The only other thing I've got downloaded right now is Operencia: The Stolen Sun, which is a game I've wanted to play for a while. Haven't fired it up yet, but I watched some of a Let's Play of it when it came out, and it looked pretty much right up my alley.
  8. So...I finished the game. Took about 140 hours (which might be the longest game I've ever finished...). I feel like the game is really let down by the last 1/3 or so. I know a lot of people complain about the enemies at the end (and they do get a bit repetitive for me, but I didn't find them particularly difficult on normal) but for me it was mostly the fact that so much of the last part of the game is spent staring at the kingdom management screen. I would finish the actual questing/exploring stuff in an in-game month or so, and then spend 8-9 months staring at the kingdom management screen, which might be fine if kingdom management was more interactive. I want to go on these expeditions to clear out spiders, or invasions from another plane, not just read about random adventurers doing them. Still planning on another playthrough at least (I want to see the "true" ending) with a bunch of mods (mainly Eldritch Arcana and Call of the Wild). Overall, glad I kickstarted it, and I'll likely get the next game they're supposedly making, though I don't know that it'll be at full price.
  9. I've been playing with it for all of my last playthrough (partway through Varnhold Vanishing, which is chapter 3 or 4...I never quite followed how people are determining the chapters in the game.) It works fine, the only thing I found weird is that if you choose to take a five foot step and then aren't in range of something, you can't do normal movement. Also, on rare occasions I had my ranged characters automatically fire their bows in the first round without me telling them to if I'd told the party to attack something before combat started. Oh, and it didn't work right at the end of the Season of Bloom chapter (as in, it never became turn-based) but there's some weirdness in how the chapter ends (not like anything broken, it's just something that doesn't occur anywhere previously in the game), and it wasn't really a big deal. It does seem to make the game somewhat easier (it's a lot easier to kill/disable enemies before they get a chance to act using turn-based) but some of the enemies are so ridiculous (seriously, what kind of DM uses enemies with +30 to hit against a 9th level party?), it's kind of nice. Edit: So, I kind of stopped playing for a bit, but that had nothing to do with the mod, the game is just really long and I got a little burnt out...also annoyed at how the quest I was on needed to be advanced.
  10. Just finished a game of XCOM: Enemy Within. Hadn't played it in quite a while, so I didn't max out the difficulty. It was shorter than I remember, and easier than I remember (with the exception of sectopods, which, unlike XCOM 2, are actually scary.) Randomly picked up 5 achievements, all for stuff expansion related (3 modified soldier ones, one for kills with base personnel, and one for kills with a covert op.) Lost 1 country (I suffered from Brexit! ), but did fine other than that. I didn't remember it being this way, but I had 8 empty buildable spots in my base when I beat the game. Didn't build a single lab, and only built a second workshop because I remembered wanting lots of workshops, but I didn't actually need it. Still funny to see the stats at the end, since some people apparently cheated in ridiculous amounts of money and stuff, such that the average income per game was over 6 times what I earned (and I had like an extra 7000 supplies.) According to Steam I'm now at 200 hours in XCOM...so almost a quarter of what I've spent on XCOM 2.
  11. I think I'm around 20 games on my wishlist at the moment, but it's mostly because I'm cheap. I've gotten to the point where I won't buy (most) games unless I can get the whole game (including all DLC, etc.) for under $20 (preferably under $15.) About the only exception that comes to mind at the moment would be XCOM 3, if it ever gets made.
  12. Age of Wonders III free to keep on Steam right now (for the weekend, apparently) if anyone's interested.
  13. Was looking at the Owlcat forums, and it turns out somebody made a turn-based mod for Kingmaker. Looks pretty decent from the video the creator posted. Needs Unity Mod Manager, but so do most Kingmaker mods, as far as I'm aware. Just thought somebody might be interested in it. I definitely plan to give a try at some point (I'd like to finish the game normally first, though. Hopefully the kingdom management is less terrible now in the EE.)
  14. Sigh...I hate 5E almost as much as 2E. It's too simplified and boring. I really wish there had been a good 4E game. Still, with any luck, it will be turn-based, so that would be nice. I'd almost rather have ToEE 2 (I really wanted Against the Giants, which they were supposed to do if ToEE did welll.) Can't really say if I'm optimistic or not before we know more, though.
  15. New Silversun Pickups album June 7th. Only band I actually buy CDs for any more.
