  1. Metro: Exodus, on Gog, because it's finally available there and was 50% off.
  2. Well, haven't posted in a while, didn't stop me from taking screenshots, so there might be a few FF XIV dumps coming up, since last post covered Heavensward and I've since kinda finished the main storyline Some random atmospheric screenshots: Potential Heavensward spoilers: Come at us, bro! (spoiler: they did, in fact, come at us )
  3. It's odd that they'd cut you off around lvl30, that's a lull in the story iirc. But as been mentioned before, ARR (aka "the base game") is a bit "meh" in the storytelling department, there's loads of set up for later though. As to who the bad guys are...well, I'm still wondering that after having finished the game (well, up to the current patch, I mean, MMOs and all). Things aren't as black and white as they are presented, which is a nice change of pace, honestly. It is one of the things I rather like about the game, many events that appear random, have consequences down the road, and not
  4. Ah yes, I should get back to Mordheim too. The drawback of already WFH fulltime prior to this pandemic is that it didn't get me any extra free time Hmm, I think you stopped playing around the time the Warmaker's dungeon was released, so off the top of my head: Warmaker's Sanctum The brewery dungeon (haven't done that one myself yet) Thrall rework (they level up now, old thralls are stuck though) Combat rework (worse for single player, imho, but ymmv) Mounts & mounted combat were added New pets (like Yetis etc) bunch of new legendary weapon
  5. This thread's missing a little something, something... The sandstorm stays impressive... Been mostly just hammering away at the pyramid, of and on. Now that thralls level up I should probably start training some and take on that new dungeon...
  6. I was nowhere near the end though... unfortunately.
  7. If the port is of the same level of quality as Nier: Automata I think I'll pass. Yes, I'm still bitter about it deciding my savegame was not worthy enough to be kept around.
  8. Still, barring the tombs, I found Rise to be the better of the series, certainly when it came to portraying Lara, and just storytelling in general. Reboot and Shadow appear to have been written by the same people, Rise feels like a (and, imho, better) different team. Let the Rise people do the writing and the other folks do the tomb designing and I'll be a happy camper. (still gotta finish Shadow, the story was so cringe, even compared to reboot, that I just parked it)
  9. The gang, assembled (well, missing Alphinaud) Mom always causing some heartache... Heavensward spoilers (including the post-release patches) Downtime for the hero, shocking!
  10. Mostly Final Fantasy XIV Online. Still leveling, story took a pretty dark turn between "vanilla" and "Heavensward" though it appears they're squandering the potential of that plot direction. Oh well, can't say I'm entirely surprised. Voice actors changed with the first expansion as well, gotta say that for most I'm afraid I don't consider it an improvement (or at least jarring enough that it irks me still even though I'm in the "post Heavensward expansion patches" stage), exception being Alphinaud, whose new voice actor (or direction, at least) is a pretty big improvement. Here's to hopin
  11. Could be interesting, assuming the port doesn't suck. Since I can't name more than a single port I've played from recent years that didn't it's a wait-and-see for sure.
  12. Warhammer sale on Gog, this means you heathens who still haven't played Mordheim: City of the Damned can now make up for your sins for cheap!
  13. Conan Exiles is getting an expansion, sounds like there might be a new map, so that's exciting news since, well, I kinda know the current one by now Maybe we'll get some technical improvements too (server software is not particularly high quality, it leaks memory as if it were a sieve) https://twinfinite.net/2020/03/conan-exiles-expansion-dune/ Oh yes, also Conan Exiles-style Dune survival game, but we already knew that one was in the works.
  14. No, the complaints are that it is called Baldur's Gate 3. Unless they continue the saga (which I would doubt, and honestly, if anybody does it's almost bound to end badly) it's capitalising on nostalgia and the reputation of those who went before instead of earning their own place (and while Larian has made some decent games they have not made it anywhere near "old Bioware" level). Had they called it "Baldur's Gate: Whatever" people would be (slightly) less annoyed (I know I would be). While there are plenty of series that have a very loose connection between different "numbered releases"
  15. Looks like an upgraded Neverwinter Nights based on the other screenshots (especially the one with the elevation difference with the archer). This might, or might not, be bad in itself, but it definitely would be bad for a game that calls itself Baldur's Gate 3. Should've just called it NWN3, honestly, and I doubt anybody would've cared. In other words just capitalising on the cult status of Baldur's Gate, kind of expected from WotC, but disappointing from Larian. We'll see how it turns out, I'm betting on severely disappointing for Baldur's Gate fans, but since we're a minority nowad
  16. Looks like my firewall managed to corrupt its own configuration (great feature for a firewall) should all be fixed now
  17. I half expected the start of the game to be a Skyrim meme... First encounter with a Chokobo... Just another day on the job. She's so corny, but I still like her, for some reason (cue Imperial March) March of the bad guys (and girl) See, angering dragons is never a good thing,... Not even Ctulhu is safe! Protecting the weak and annoying... Cute flying vegetables! Cat people looking cute... Meh, who needs visibility when you can look cool instead?
  18. Eastern European RPGs would like a word The rest of the West is too busy not trying to step on any toes to be able to even go within a galaxy of "sensitive" subjects. It's a disease (and a sign of an unhealthy society, but I digress)
  19. Still mostly FF XIV (the M MO, for those unaware ;)), gotta hand it to them, while the story is a heap of clich├ęs it's pretty well told. They actually do take the time for you to "bond" with characters before killing them off, quite unlike the "trend" of telling you you should care about $CHARACTER right off the bat ("Hey, you, PC, go find your dad/son you don't really know! But you should care about them, because family! Hey, where are you going?") Game swings heavily between derp and dark too, going from a raped girl right back to brewing booze for goblins back to burying people (as in,
  20. There's a flattering comparison if I ever heard one!
  21. Got suckered into FF XIV. Game's weird to be sure, and indeed much better than the beta of the original I participated in, way back when. Story is surprisingly decent, too. I mean, for a MMO. I also enjoy that there's some actual RPG options still there, the level scaling also makes it so lower level areas still feel alive.
  22. Been blasting fools in Ion Fury. Been a blast so far. (Heh)
  23. Yes, I was talking about the Metro dev/publisher financials, not Epic's. It's usually the developer/publisher that releases sales numbers. Though if Epic makes claims about sales I do expect them to back those up with actual numbers though, not with vague and misleading statements comparing to 7 year old games (their comparison was to Last Light, not Last Light Redux, which likely sold quite a bit more than the original). Should also be noted that they claimed digital copies, this likely includes all the Steam preorders (including all those that got rushed in when the deal was made public)
