Which & why

 

Seven: Days Long Gone - I was utterly disappointed when I found out it was Humble Monthly Regular Unlock & I missed it, but not sure do I want another buggy game in my library next to Pathfinder KM

Them's Fightin' Herds - have been eyeing this a long time, want to try something new but not sure if I would enjoy it

your suggestion below 12 euro...

Subnautica is free on Epic Games Store Launcher so you should nab that and let that entertain you for a bit at least.

Hmmm... Thems Fightin Herds, if I remmeber correctly it's like a 2D fighting game with pony's? Skullgirls is cheap and has a similar vibe.

You are dead to me.   :verymad:

 

 

 

I picked up Elex on sale, but I don't think I'm ready for the time commitment. Just wanted to have it in the library.

Me: Ooh, that JRPG looks interesting!

Also me: Don't you have like 5 of those you haven't played yet that are better?

 

Me: I could use a new horror game!

Also me: But I own everything on the top sellers and haven't played half of them.

 

Me: Ooh, I could get the 7th game in this franchise. I like it

Also me: You own  1-6, but you're still only on 2. Do you really need to buy it now?

I'm thinking about picking up Prey, but I'm in the same boat as Tale. Probably not as bad, but similar at least.

Just how many System Shocks do you have in your backlog?

Is the Bayonetta PC port any good.

I have two. Well, I did play 2 but that doesn't count since it was some 18 years ago. *sniff*

Never played 1 though which is the one that is similar to Prey, 2 was more in the lines of BioShock I think.

The prey reboot is legit one of my favourite games ever. I cant stan it enough.

System shock 1 + 2 are cut from similar cloth. Bioshocks a far different beast. Its a theatrical fps without any of the metroidvania influence.

I dont say that as a criticism, btw. Bioshock works on its own terms.

It's perfect. The controls are rebindable (though, still weird for the bike/rocket gameplay sequences) and there is mouse support (works in 14th chapter).

You Prey folks have convinced me. When I get home, I'll buy it and take it for a spin.

Being a sucker, I bought the Prey trilogy pack. I noticed that the first Prey is rated much higher than the sequels, but in for a penny, in for a pound.

EDIT: a little late here and I'm a tad tired. Had to clean up the post.

"Trilogy pack"? There's no trilogy - there's been Prey back in ... Prehistoric ages and in 2017, a game of the same name got released. Later, 2 DLCs came out, both very different from the base game. We're talking about the 2017 base game here (I believe?)

2006 version of prey not readily available. guess what uve bought there is the base game + the dlcs, mooncrash and typhon hunter. im not all that interested in typhon hunter. (multiplayer, meh) mooncrash is a nifty little standalone campaign thats off-piste enough to complement the base game with a fresh take on similar themes.

 

the higher reviews ur seeing are prob for the base game, which is as it should be. mooncrash just an experimental little diversion by comparison. base game stone cold masterpiece imo. cant comment on typhon hunter, but its free afaik, so whatevs.

Ah, I see Foxy. We were out real world gaming yesterday and it was quite late when we got home. So I might have bought some DLCs that I won't use as much? :grin and shrug: No biggie.

I've really had pretty good luck with reading suggestions on this particular board.
