OK. Now I am inside the cavern in the Cayron's Scar after few ridiculous pulls, one snow eating defeat and one Tentacle Cuddle Party... That was so ridiculous O.o

My second finished "game" this year is Pillars of Eternity: The White March – Part II expansion from GOG. I had to quest until hitting level 16 in vanilla parts of the game to be able to finish it. I have turned on the scaling for the second expansion, so some of the fights were really crazy hard. Anyway, I was able to give back the memory to Abydon, but I was not able to temper him during the conversation with the Eyeless. We'll see what impact it will have on the final ending of the game. I think I liked this part little bit more than the first one. Well with the exception of monk fights in some of the encounters.

After that, I had still time to finish off the Alpine Dragon. The only dragon, with whom I was not able to talk out of the fight in my playthrough. Well, at least I have an achievement for that 😛

Congratulations! The tempering is notoriously tricky to pull off, doubly so without prior knowledge and/or a guide, so I'm not surprised.

You mentioned the Alpine Dragon, but out of curiosity, did you defeat

I don’t think so. I have finished the main quests for both expansions, but I am still missing one last quest which came with WM2, so I think there might be this guy/creature at the end of this quest. The Phylactery one. Hopefully I’ll let you know in few days how that quest ends and if I met him there or not 😛 because I want to completely clear my quest log before going to Burial Isle again 😛

Ghost Recon Breakpoint.

The patch that dropped last month basically turned the game around from yet another insipid shooter-looter into something resembling a worthy successor to Wildlands. I'm having a lot of fun with it but, as always, coop makes just about anything fun.

Speaking of which, they made it so that game owners can invite up to three other people who don't have it, to play in the same session.

Having fun screwing about in Surviving Mars.  Took me a while to realize how the drones function and also that I choose a poor landing site far from water, but I guess that is what happens when you skip tutorials.

I dusted off my Surviving Mars savegame too.  My but the game is slooooooooow. Like, year 77 and I only have, like, 150 schmucks and six domes. Good with research though but need to get even better so I can grab fertility and depend on locals more than imports who constantly get Earthsick and try to run away (that's why no high education for those quitter bastards! :down:)  It seems they think I'm building this colony just that they could drink and gamble away. Well b†tch please, if you can't do with just a park and a grocery store like my retirement dome, don't let the airlock hit you on your way out, we don't need you party-hard types here on Mars. 😠

I remember how in Aven Colony -- another space city builder -- I could distribute drugs of happiness and productivity via ventilation system. Good times.

OK, so I met Llengrath, and I was able to get with her in peaceful terms :) Reward was new Skill with +1 to 3 attributes and Bog Dragon Scales 😛

I exchanged some of my knowledge, which I have forgotten for that. I was speaking about guy on bottom of Caed Nue before that hapenned. I am now wondering now, what I've really forgotten 🤔

I haven't had time for nothin' lately, but I've decided to eek out a little time to try the 3rd episode of the Long Dark:  Wintermute.  I think it's the latest one.  This time, we're playing as Astrid.  Not bad so far.  Seems we can save the game now, even quicksave.

Okami HD. Completed the game.
Loren: The Amazon Princess. Started the second playthrough, this time as a warrior. The PC's survivability increased, as warrior's HP and damage depend on one stat, unlike rogue's.

I'm on chapter 16 of Valkyria Chronicles 4. On the one hand, I'm only roughly 2/3 to 3/4 of the way through the tech trees. On the other, story wise, it feels like I'm right at the end. My squad's all either lev 18 or lev 19, so I guess I'll find out if the game is capped at lev 20 or not real soon. On most of the missions there's usually a strategy that you can exploit to cheese the mission and get an A rank (A rank is the highest rank in the NA version of the game). I guess it's not really cheesing... I mean, it's a tactics game, the whole idea is finding the best tactic and exploiting it as hard as the game will allow. To the game's credit, the best tactic to exploit varies quite a bit from mission to mission.

I was almost interested in the FF7 remake just in an action kind of way, but then heard while it has an ending, the actual ff7 full story is still going to be split between two (or more) games. So ... pfft. Supposedly it'll be on PC eventually too. I'll wait, then.  I was mostly intrigued because I read that the Hard mode means you can't use any items in combat, or at all, or something.  That could be an interesting mode. They should have done that with FFXV, honestly.

I am worried about the gameplay. But as it is split I'll wait to get it as a complete package when it goes on 50% sale in 10 years.

Well, With the speed SE is developing their games since PS3 era, you will probably not see the complete package before PS7 😛 so my educated guess will be, you still have 20+ years 😉

I just hope that the game will finally answer the one thing that has been bothering me since I was a kid:

Red XIII - dog or cat?

EDIT:  I mean, he has to be a dog.

I've finished my 2nd playthrough of Loren: The Amazon Princess and thinking about purchasing the next part, Season of the Wolf (sequel?) or Cursed Lands (prequel?). Not sure, which one I should play first, so additional information would be welcome.

So, I finished Coteries.
Since melkathi asked for my impressions I wrote notes about the game as I played. After I reached what the writers considered an endgame, I realize I shouldn't have bothered. The ending is so singularly, mind-boggingly bad and weird and pointless that almost every other smaller problem the game had feels irrelevant to discuss.

That said, I've read once that you can only do two companions to still have time to wrap up every side story, which was untrue. And there's no 'co' in coterie.

One more thing I think is worth mentioning is the fact that the game has 3 pre-defined-ish characters to choose from but all that does is change your character sprite, what disciplines you get to use (which doesn't amount to as much as it sounds), a tiny vignette scene...

...and what racial slur you get thrown in your face. If the devs are going to go for cheap woke points, you'd think they wouldn't make that one of the biggest affects on the script at the least.

At least you played the patched version. On release some dialogue restrictions weren't done right so you could pick the disciple options you didn't have 😛

 

The thing about the ending is that it actually makes more sense than other vampire games - you are but a fledgling not even a week old. You can't compete with centuries old vampires.

 

You can't really wrap up more than two companions. Though diAngelo and the Tremere will help you even if you didn't get to the end of their quest.

 

The disappointment with the irrelevance of clan you choose and choices you make is very much what everyone felt.

 

A shame, because the game has great writing. I adore Hope.

It's not even the lack of agency that bothers me. Sure, having something to actually do would've been nice, but what gets me is the abrupt finale, scenes rush by like mad, then I get to sit in place and listen to Daddy's Favourite NPC monologuing about how he is in control and all according to keikaku and true power is like a bee getting stuck in old chewing gum in the winter cold or whatever (I rolled my eyes when he started ranting how you-know-who not getting his self-indulgent metaphor means they're stupid. Sure buddy, whatever helps you sleep during the day). On the tabletop this would be the kind of GMing that people were told to stop doing literally decades ago. Plus they could've at least given you the option to resist the "offer" at the end, saying NO U KANT would be admitting to how incredibly on rails the scene is.

It combines KotOR 2's unfinishedness with Mass Effect 3's nonsensical, railroady mess.

The first apartment attack is also a scene that abruptly happens, a bunch of characters show up out of nowhere, you get to sit down and listen to everyone being a badass, like a good boy/girl because Daddy GM wants you to see how cool and in control his NPCs are. And everything is immediately resolved and it's a footnote in the events at large. Or when you confront your stalker, are forced into reacting to her being insulted for calling her a creep (why?), she says like two sentences and leaves. Wow. Glad we cleared that sideplot up. Some scenes just boggle the mind.

PC background's irrelevance didn't bother me as much, because I'm used to playing VNs more on the kinetic side of the spectrum. Ever17 was the most complex one I played, I think. To me, VNs never really take advantage of their medium as much as they could. Imagine doing sidequest x and when you're told your apartment will be better watched it actually is watched better and the vandalism against it fails.
