What Are You Playing Now: The Other Thread


Recommended Posts

More Pillars of Eternity. I have moved more around Durgan's Battery, got asskicked twice (once by golems, once by Meztla 😛 ) and then kicked her ass myself. After a while and two new Soulbound weapons, I have moved back to Caed Nua and finished 3 more bounties. Someone is planning to attack my Stronghold, so I am planning to defend it by myself ;)

I can tell you, that I like him more than I like Sagani and probably more than Palegina, but less than Kana 😛 My favourite NPC so far is Aloth. He went from bad to above average in my eyes in the last few hours :)

Fair enough. I liked Aloth in both POE games, so you'll get no complaint from me. 😉

We'll see how it goes later in the game with all the NPCs :) e.g. Sagani was okay but after taking her for few bounties, I am getting little bit disapointed by her performance :( She does not have very good armor yet, so that might be the case. I don't know...

The Outer Worlds.  Easily the best Obsidian game, it shows how far they've come from being Kickstarter Scammers catering to Euro Trash to worthy developers.

Disco Elysium. I successfully discovered the corpse and vomited twice in front of it. I think, it would go better, if I was able to skip or at least speed up animations.

God Eater: Resurrection. The controls feel off - like the avatar is weightless - after GE3, but I appreciate the lore. This time it's in cut-scenes, instead of the in-game encyclopedia. The story progresses slowly, I hope it'll pick up the pace soon.

I stupidly shot at the corpse with my low gun skills and hit the torso which gave me a morality penalty.  Not sure if this will bit me in the ass later or not but I kinda felt like I ignored my instincts on that one and suffered heavy consequences.

I got Shadow Tactics through Epic's free holiday game giveaway and it's pretty darn great. I had never heard of it before.  One mission can feel like an entire game.  A lot of experimenting and reloading. 

I also got TABS and Bad North through that same holiday giveaway which are pretty fun to mess around with. Nothing I have to heavily concentrate on so good for relaxing or beating boredom. 

Other than that I'm playing through Pillars of Eternity to make a good save for Poe2.  I got a new PC about 8 months ago and I didn't bother transferring game saves. More fun to just make new ones.

I wanted to grab this on PC as I also have a 2080 Super but the thing is I've already beat on Xbox so I kinda spoiled it already.  'Tis a shame.

@vyvexthorne @melkathi I loved Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, it was my 2016 GotY. The team that made that game is currently working on Desperados 3, which is one of my most anticipated upcoming games.

If you set her up right, including her equipment and tanking up her fox, she becomes quite deadly as an archer later on.

Yeah, I watched a video about desperados 3 after downloading shadow tactics and stuck it in my watchlist. I had never heard of Desperados either.. Weirdly enough I own and loved Commandos  1-3 so I'm not sure why I never knew desperados existed.

The first Desperados is really great, the second, less so.

Wrapping up the final chapter in Tokyo Xanadu ex+. Falcom is one of my favorite developers and Xanadu was the older staff letting the younger devs do what they want. Xanadu plays like an amalgamation of Falcom's flagship series (<---that's plural, but sadly English doesn't have a way of differentiating series (singular) and series (plural)) Trails and Ys. Like Ys it's action based, focuses on dungeon runs, and has some platforming. Similar to Trails it has orbal devices, master quartz, and quartz equivalents, all the npcs have things to say and it changes as time changes, there are bonding events and link levels, and character codex.

I started this current playthrough almost a year ago. While I like the game I don't care for the combat, and the story is very linear. So much so I'm not sure if I'll ng+ when I'm done. Absolutely worth playing through once if you're a fan of either the Ys series or Trails.

Well, I think that ship has already sailed 😛 I have specced her for melee combat, not for shooting. I somehow am unable to find quality armour for her :( I will have to probably visit some of the Deadfire mini DLC shops around Defiance Bay.

Ohhhh, so that explains why you're not liking her too much. 😀 Yeah she's definitely not melee/frontline material. She is best for shooting from the back. There's even a specific build for her you can find in this forum that makes it possible for her to one-shot powerful enemies later in the game.

Anyway, I was able to recruit Devil of Caroc, we’ll see how this will go 😛 I was searching for a Dwarven Souls in Stalwart, and found two of them, but both looks little bit crazy compared to the original person 🙂 so I will have to sleep over it which one I should pick 😛

The sad thing is the super flexible mechlab really breaks the game, because the OPFOR can't really counter imba builds like max flamer Firestarters or laser vomit Grashoppers and is itself restricted to stock variants. So that and an AI that is just adequate (and cannot use morale abilities) require that you are always outnumbered to provide an iota of challenge. A bad foundational decision to have that in the game in its current form, but I guess "fans wanted it"... though they may have felt differently if warned that it would come with 4v8-12 drudgery.

In this game, an ammo explosion automatically destroys the part, and the MG ammo is in the CT on the WHM-6R. I used to run a melee modded Banshee with max armor and nothing but +crit MGs. Good (broken) times.

Chugging along in the BFGA2 imperial campaign. Tyranids launched a multi-pronged invasion but managed to only take a system that had just been lost to heretics. GG hivemind. I get the feeling the game is made much easier by having a friend control half the fleet, and I'm no space Zhukov. We may need to up the difficulty for next campaign. I'm really liking how distinct the different factions feel.

Makes sense then, although I recall it being in his RT, as RT went then CT and then he died.  Was still satisfying to get that and then one shot kill an Awesome right after with a head hit with 2 AC/20s. 

I should replay BFGA2 on a harder difficulty.  Although that is doomed to fail as my tactics invariably reduce to keeping my ships compact and just forming a wall of fire.  Works great on everything that isn't a Tyranid or Ork (AI doesn't really use bombs, or maybe just not on normal difficulty).

Plugging along in WoW, although the invasions as a healer is a no-go so I have to group up with some random people to play.  Always laugh at how my WoW guild only had 7 active members back in vanilla and we couldn't do anything but now everyone's gone but we could do stuff now.

Perhaps it was another Warhammer variant? Since it was added to the game, I've only played with BEX 3025 which adds a ton of 'mechs, but I don't really know which ones are vanilla. As far as I know, an ammo explosion always destroys the part where it happens but, unlike in the tabletop, there is no spillover damage to the CT because the explosion doesn't actually do numerical damage.

AI ability usage in BFGA is weird. It rarely uses even torpedoes, and I don't think I've ever seen it pop probes or bombs. Fighters, boarding actions and mobility abilities seem to be routinely cycled, however. Maybe it's a difficulty tier thing. Regardless, I'm enjoying the game a lot, but I wish it would let the guest purchase ships. Also digging how bad the Astartes are.
