Been playing some Jade Empire. It has been a good experience so far with the combat. Some of the dialogue is a little jarring though.

 

Like when

I beat Teslagrad. A fun puzzle platformer that looks really good. Not overly long either. I'm just collecting the last achievements for 100%.

Did a boss battle in Saliens. Played the entire health bar and went from level 7 to 12. Took me an hour, I think.

I'm nearing the end of Higurashi Chapter 1 and things are picking up. I'm really hooked.

But I'm also splitting time with more Choice of Games titles since Choice of Robots was so good. Just started Fallen Hero Rebirth, which is about a mind controlling supervillain that used to be a hero. And it's pretty nice too.

Ahhhhh...the demo for Book 2 is out..just saying XD check the forum ! when you are done teehee...

 

Finished the first and it was simply incredible. I don't think I'm going to touch the demo, though. Don't want the tease hanging over me before release.

 

you arent missing much . The demo is extremely short , and need alot of work . Its been released mostly for testing by the author and to drive her feral fans batty XD .

I'm working on my Steam review for Dead Rising 4 which was given to me by ShadySands.

So far, I like it more than the others. The map is more open and they removed the stupid time limits to finish each case which means that you can explore on your own time as much as you'd like.

Optimization wise, it runs fine except that it get stucks on the loading screen once in a while so I had to control+alt+delte and restart the game. After that, no issues, no frame drops either which is surprising comsidering that the zombies come by the hundreds. I play with a 360 controller so I'm not sure how the game does with a mouse and keyboard.

Graphics it looks pretty good, it's probably my hdd in my Alpha chasis that causes some lod slowdown to a minimal output causing buffering to happen BUT that's only on things like posters and decales on the walls in the game. Or maybe it's just the game/engine that's causing it?

Soundwise it's great.

Another gameplay change I like is that the annoying "escort a survivor" missions are gone. They annoyed me, especially in the second game. Crafting seems to have take a notch up as well. Locations actually vary. It takes place in winter but you get a pretty broad sense of locale, kinda like the variances of The Witcher 3 or GTA5, even though the map isn't as big of course.

Story wise, the story is my favorite thing. It's silly enough but less silly than the other Dead Rising games. At least so far. The start of the game is very close (but not identical) to Return Of The Living Dead 3's beginning. That was a zombie movie from the late 80's if I remember correctly. It then progresses to a Prototype 2 type feel minus the superpowers and add crazy weapons. Both have the sci-fi definitive story in common throughout.

That's about all I got. I enjoyed this Dead Rising the most. Poorest rating on Steam out of all of them, not because the game itself but because people had issues running it, cpu is taxed by all them zombies so best be prepared.

Thank you all. Goodnight.

I spent a few bucks to pick up Rust, but I can not get it to run easily. It takes forever to load servers, and then the performance is just a no-go. Might need to just give it up.

All I can say for now is that the game opens up with Jimmy Hendrix - All Along The Watch Tower mastered for surround sound. With added reverbs lightly thrown in the background and some frequency cuts, it sounds just like it would on Vynal in a porch room. Very New Orleans indeed!

More Vampyr.

 

So I've killed off three of the four pillars of the community, even though I'm playing a peaceful/good guy play through.  Imagine how much carnage I'd leave in my wake if I was actually trying to be a vicious beast.

So you're playing a peaceful, miserly guy? You could have given them your blood.

But then I'd lose out on XP.  Maybe I'm less a good guy and more an XP-addict.

Can the battles in Vampyr be cheesed?  I plan to eventually get the game and do a maximum pacifist playthrough, which will mean I will be super weak in battle and will need to resort to cheese tactics.

I'm almost done with act one in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing Final Cut, so far I been having

 

a blast playing it. I been using a gunslinger build (Picked the Bounty Hunter class at the game's beginning).

 

Quick thank you to ShadySands for giving me this game.

 

UPDATE ONE: I just finished up act 1, now for act 2. UPDATE TWO: Act 2 is done and am starting act 3. Ok

 

just one more act to go, then I'm finished with this game. May take a break for a day or two before I start act 3.

Kind of. There's a blood shield power that enables you to completely shrug off a set number of hits (any hits) regardless of the level difference, and it doesn't cost any blood. The ultimate abilities don't cost any blood either, so if you're patient, you can pop the shield and slowly chip away at your enemies with a hit-and-run approach while you wait for the cooldowns to refresh.

The game seem to have 3 main builds with choosing from blood, shadow or bestial abilities. There are however "pacifists" skills, you will definitely want to invest in. Carrying more bullets and health packs for example or stealth, bosses will be hard and I would recommend at least investing in one offensive skill and one ultimate.

That blood shield doesn't work well for me.  It seems to absorb like one hit, then I get pummeled relentlessly right after.

^ The amount of hits it can take before expiring increases with the XP you put into it, especially if you choose the bottom tree version (the non-exploding one).

It can be really hilarious at times, never expected a puzzle game to be this reactive.
