Always forget how snobby this place is.

If a developer's name starts with the letter B and it lives long enough, it will end up becoming a villain. Blizzard, Bioware, Batman, Bethesda.

 

Also, not snobs but holders of the one and only incontrovertible truth.

Or just the Codex minus the racism.  :lol:

Brack got the sack from Blizzard - https://news.blizzard.com/en-us/blizzard/23706475/new-leadership-at-blizzard

Interesting how the title of the head of Blizzard has been downgraded, Morhaime was CEO, Brack was President and these two are co-leads, although guess their official one may be just unknown as of now

Hey, a question to all of you: I'm the kind of player who's into Deadfire-type games mainly for the story. CRPG happens to be my main genre, but as we all know, there's not much available now, particularly in the fantasy RTWP niche.

So, if I were to try branching out a little, forgetting the fantasy and the RTWP but keeping hold of the main idea that "I love a game with a good story", is there anything (hopefully recent) out there that you'd think I might enjoy? Recommendations welcome and appreciated.

Plague Tale: Innocence was praised to high heaven for it's writing, though I found it merely fine. Characters are well done and well acted, but overall narrative I found to be distractignly daft. 

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice - like above, but I loved this one. 

I am personally into those small indie "artsy" titles, but don't know how they would appeal to you: Undertale, Firewatch, anything Supergiant (but ideally not Transistor, and preferably Pyre)

Wildermyth has a story you create via making choices for successive generations of adventurers. The Witcher games have pretty good stories all in all despite some blunders here and there. The Forgotten City is an adventure game but won an Australian Writers Guild Award.

@xzar_monty Maybe check some articles about Beautiful Desolation. I really do not know if it could be something what you might be into, but you never know. Indie game form South Africa IIRC.

https://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/385710/Opinion_Ass_Effect__Whats_really_behind_the_Miranda_Lawson_freakout.php

I had to post this after our last discussion about the normal admiration for Mirandas voluptuous figure

So its a really objective discussion about this question. Its also written by a lady which is important, I dont think keeping Miranda in the same way is about objectification. Since when did admiring someone  become a negative ....but we all have our own views 

But here is what another  person wrote,  it sounds clever but I am not sure I understand what point she is making?

Philosopher Martha Nussbaum argues quite persuasively that real objectification lies in what she calls fungibility--a kind of interchangability. The objectified body is not necessarily sexy, but deindivudated, and therefore fungible with any other body or body-part. Individuality and identity are lost.

Difficult to say, but sure looks like it. Maybe it will live up to the opening Metroidvania feel of DS1.

I finally got around to starting DS3 for real. Still Sekiro to be played, and considering I generally need a decent break after each DS it might be a while till I get to ER. DS3 isn't too punishing so far, though. Feels almost relaxing after asswooping that was DS2.

I might be playing DS1 from tomorrow, do you think I should ....I dont think I have ever played this type of JRPG before?

And I will definitely use a controller :thumbsup:

IMO DS1 is the most special out of those three so you definitely should. DS1 is one of those games everyone should give a go, I think. Even if it won’t be your cup of tea, it’s one of a kind experience. 

Personally I didn’t find DS1 as punishing as it’s reputation would suggest. I mean you will die, but I never found it frustrating, tedious or discouraging (as DS2 felt). Once you get a hang of the game, feel free to google or ask around - there some some important mechanics, that IMO don’t get explained properly.

EDIT. If stuck, summons (be it NPC of friendly players) is DS version of easy mode. To my great shame I did “skip” one tough boss fight through an assist of a more competent player. Need to go back to DS1 and do it all proper.
