Looks like what I expected it to look like, slightly better I guess.  Some people were expecting them in the GTA V engine for some reason, though.

I think the shooting mechanics have changed and are much closer to GTA V now. If that's true then I'll be more than happy to try them out. Controls in the original games weren't the best.

Let's be honest here, this looks way better than we expected. 

 

Dunno. I feel like it's destroying the art style a bit. Some shots look good, others not so much.

My best times with Darkest Dungeon 1 were when it was in Early Access so I think I'll repeat the trick here. Guess I'm installing the EGS client for the first time ever.

I do have somewhat of a love-hate relationship with the game in that it has a *lot* of mechanics I dislike and disagree with the implementation of, but very much appreciate that modding said mechanics was fairly trivial, with most of it stored in plain text files.

DD2 looks nice, not sure about that wagon play, we will see... when it comes to GoG

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

The wagon gameplay looks really weird. Like a mobile game?

What I didn't like about the first game was the extreme Random. To me it often felt demotivating, because you could have a really good run and then suddenly everything goes down the crapper and you had no control over it.

That's what makes rogue likes attractive to Devs, not needing to figure out how to balance, as players just write it off as an unlucky run and try again

Unobtrusively informing you about my new ebook (which you should feel free to read and shower with praise).

In fairness 0:53-1:03 is an accurate layman's description of the tactical doctrine of the Apache and other ATGM-equipped helicopters. My personal favourite showing of the Apache (albeit brief) was the otherwise forgettable Sean Astin film Toy Soldiers (only video with the clip of said scene):

I hated the updated cut and didn't pick up Legendary Edition because they didn't make it optional

Moral of the story: don't rush games out for an easy buck. It makes everyone miserable. 

The thing I dislike most about ME3 ending, is that it distracts from how shoddy the rest of the game is. 

Devs should always do self contained one-game-at-the-time. The only trilogy that payed off was Witcher - and arguably it is a disjointed trilogy where games work better on their own, then in sequence. 

I replayed the trilogy a while back, and while playing ME I was already feeling sad by how disappointingly the set ups will be "resolved".

I've replayed the trilogy a few times (although I never played the updated ME3 endings).

I think the things that disappoints me the most about the trilogy is that the series starts as pure heroic space opera and by ME3 the series is "war is hell, there is no good choices, life sucks and then you die" kind of storytelling.

Which isn't bad per se, particularly had the series always been that way, but I don't find that to be a satisfactory conclusion to what started as a heroic space opera.  I could accept the sort of darker ME2 with the idea it was the "Empire Strikes Back" of Mass Effect, but instead it was like, in movie terms, ME1-3 were Star Wars - Empire Strikes Back - Full Metal Jacket.  'Fixing' the end of ME3 is never going to fix that tonal problem with the series.

I still find it amazing people still say ME3 would've been perfect if not for the final 5 minutes. Apparently I was the only one to see BioWare rip off the plot of a direct to video Steven Seagal movie to cure the genophage.

That reminds me I have ME4 on my Origin platform. Never got around to try launching it 🤔

The trilogy was a mixed bag. All IMHO, but first game had the most fun combat, second game had the most fun party members (and party, with the DLC) and third game had... no mini games!

My biggest two beefs with ME3 was Kai Leng (which completely killed any enjoyment I might have felt playing the game up to that point) and the pointless ending that killed any enjoyment I might have felt playing the game up the that point...

 

A bit of a weird thing about Bioware games when I look at it in retrospective. Dragon Age 1 and Mass Effect 1 both had some very promising and interesting game mechanics and combat systems. The sequels in both series tossed it all out and featured what I see as comparably dumb, mindless systems. Was it really too challenging? Dang it, I really loved discovering new, fun (and sometimes completely suicidal) outcomes when mixing various spell effects in the original Dragon Age 😁

For me not weird, but expected, because they were EAten after these two magnificent games 🤷‍♂️
