Picture of Your Games the 16th

@Keyrockย  lol, yeah the face quality is the first thing I noticed. Doesn't really bother me much but it's kind of amusing. ๐Ÿ˜„

I noticed on the forum that others seem to have fps/stutter issues with the demo. Outside of having to use DLSS to get the 60fps at 4k because apparently my 9900k/2080ti is a potato these days, I didn't notice any issues like that. I was like that with FFXV tho too. Barely noticed any issues while everyone else called it broken.

Based on the install size of Outcast's demo I'm semi-convinced it's a build of almost the entire game, or at least 90% of it, haha, vs. a small-install-sized demo file, which could be one reason for such severe restrictions in place.

Players also figured out you could reset the replays limit deleting save files or something, and if you hexedit you could defeat the time limit too. I didn't bother trying however.

Pacific Drive demo:

I got a Firewatch vibe from this right away because of the art style and the faceless voice you hear.

You're in an exclusion zone, much like the one around Chernobyl, except this one is in the Pacific northwest.

You drive around in a piece of **** station wagon and scavenge for parts to keep your car running and build stuff to progress the story.

I'm definitely interested.

Dont leave me hanging, what happened when you drove into the gateway?

It teleported me back to the auto shop, which seems to be your base of operations in the game.

Saints Row

2 things that should have been advertised more and the reason why I will purchase it on sale on Steam (got for free on EGS; would love to get it on GOG, though).

The character creator is amazing and is better than it used to be in the previous games (and already was very impressive back then).

Soulmask demo:

ZPZMioU.jpeg

It's a survival game, you swing your axe at trees and you build stuff.

bZ1zyJe.jpeg

The game does look really nice. I was worried because the character creation screen was all types of stripped down, janky, and really low res, but once I got into actual gameplay, it looks great. Plus it's got capybaras and tapirs.

T3mqHFW.jpeg

Another nice touch is that you are actually wet after going in the water. I feel like this is something I shouldn't have to mention in 2024, but the amount of games, including AAA releases, still coming out where there are no wet effects, your character is just instantly dry after swimming, is downright embarrassing.

kzqeieN.jpeg

It will take more than just pretty graphics to join Conan Exiles, and to a lesser degree Valheim, as the only survival games I've liked, though, and I haven't seen anything in the demo yet to make this more than just swinging an axe at trees. I haven't gotten any story so far.

Side-note: No capybaras were harmed in the playing of this demo. I'm not about to kill them for meat. I did kill a couple of wild dogs, but they attacked me first.

Elder Scrolls Online. I recently made a new character: argonian warden. This quest was in Hammerfell where apparently they have racing lizards and this lady sells them.

Possibly the best character creator yet.

Which Saints Row already was know for, so it being an improvement over the previous, kinda makes it the best by default.

The prosthetics were a great addition. I briefly considered restarting the game and making a young boss with flawless skin, and after each Insurance Fraud side hustle, adding bruises and eventually prosthetics, to reflect the results of the mini game.

The active graphical settings are highly unlikely to be used by anyone else, so it might be not exactly representative.

Caesar 3 Augustus/Julius mods work great. With Augustus version's zoom-out, I can now finally get a shot of an entire messy city. Yay!ย  Unsure re: all the added gameplay options (you can not check/have most not active I think, at least) but maybe I'll try a campaign with it to see how it works and if I can make it feel closer to vanilla but retain some QoL stuff. Will the workers still cut across gardens? I mean, I want them to. Some quirks were fun!

(from a very old save file of the final Peace map)

After attending to some mage's guild business in and around Balmora I decided to head back to the mainland for some more exploring, but this time I decided to go to Firewatch and branch out from there to explore the northeastern most part of Morrowind.

Q8uGXjV.jpeg

Exploring along the coast I ran into a fellow Nord woman who did not take kindly to my presence.

iiKPuBq.jpeg

She put up one hell of a fight. In the picture I have half health but that was taken after I had chugged a potion, I was pretty close to death at one point. There are some fairly challenging enemies here so it's a good thing that I'm very well equipped.

Venturing further north I then took a boat to Nivalis.

SA9YeNd.jpeg

This is about as far north as you can go in Morrowind, or all of Tamriel, for that matter. From here I plan to explore the island Nivalis is on then work my way south on the mainland toward Necrom.

The character creator for Dragon's Dogma 2 is really great. The interface leaves a bit to be desired but the functionality is pretty great. You can make 5 characters and 5 main pawns and import one of each into the game when it releases. Here's one of the characters I've created:

RMJ6d1g.jpeg

This isn't the first game to release a character creator before launch and I hope it's a trend that continues, especially if the character creator is fairly deep. I'll typically spend several hours when a game launches just making a character, letting me do that ahead of time is much appreciated.

Here's a pawn:

I was waylaid by a golden saint not once but twice recently in my travels. This may seem like a nuisance, but in fact it's great fortune as golden saints supply among the best souls in the game, and I just happen to always carry grand soul gems on me. I turned one of the golden saint souls and an adamantium mace into this:

fctbILD.jpeg

That mace makes me nearly invincible in melee and 400 charges means that it will take a loooong battle for it to run dry. I guess the best defense against it would be paralyze, can't life-leach if I'm not attacking. I'm not sure yet what to use the other golden saint soul gem on. Anyway, I hope I run across some more golden saints.ย :biggrin:

โ€œPolitical philosophers have often pointed out that in wartime, the citizen, the male citizen at least, loses one of his most basic rights, his right to life; and this has been true ever since the French Revolution and the invention of conscription, now an almost universally accepted principle. But these same philosophers have rarely noted that the citizen in question simultaneously loses another right, one just as basic and perhaps even more vital for his conception of himself as a civilized human being: the right not to kill.โ€

Quote

"The chancellor, the late chancellor, was only partly correct. He was obsolete. But so is the State, the entity he worshipped. Any state, entity, or ideology becomes obsolete when it stockpiles the wrong weapons: when it captures territories, but not minds; when it enslaves millions, but convinces nobody. When it is naked, yet puts on armor and calls it faith, while in the Eyes of God it has no faith at all. Any state, any entity, any ideology that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of Man...that state is obsolete."
