Catchup list

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, the time of my second-laptop-coming is almost upon us. I have a hefty backlog to dig into already including Wasteland 2, Dreamfall Chapters, Broken Age part 2, Walking Dead season 2 episodes 3-5, Mechwarrior Online's clanner mechs, Jagged Alliance Flashback and Pillars of Eternity. Was there anything else you guys could recommend that was released from July last year to now? Help me get back into the loop.

I've heard lots of goods things about Divinity, how is the story by the way? I remember reading that there is a lot of humour in the game and then they started talking about how reactive all the elements were and how much use you get out of skills like talking to animals. Thanks for reminding me.

 

Have they concluded season one of Wolf Amoung us yet? How is the Borderlands TTG so far? I'd also suggest to you that Tales of Monkey Island is worth picking up if you've never played it. The first episode has one or two really tedious puzzles but overall that series was hillarious and it's probably still my favourite Tell Tale game atm.

 

Hadn't heard of Lords of Xulima before, it looks a bit like a blend of Baldurs and Wizardry 8? I'll definitely read up on it.

I actually just finished playing this today. I backed it on Kickstarter and I'm still not sure whether that was a wise decision -- it's a mix of good and bad. There's very little similarity to Baldur's Gate beyond the fact that you get 6 party members in both. Lords of Xulima is a game with turn-based combat where one party member is chosen for you and the others you can either make for yourself or use the provided ones, but regardless of what you do, they will not have any personality whatsoever or even be mentioned in the cutscenes.

 

In a nutshell, I would recommend it for you if you really, really like turn-based combat because this game has so much of it that I barely had the patience to finish it on the lowest difficulty setting. Incidentally, the difficulty setting doesn't so much change the difficulty of individual fights as alter the amount of XP and gold you get -- it's roughly doubled on the lowest setting so you'd need to grind a whole lot more on higher ones. And it's not the short kind of combat either: enemies routinely have 5-10 times as much HP as you do so even straightforward battles take a while.

 

The good parts are that the art is pretty nice, the music is also nice, the puzzles and mini-games are decent and the main story is OK. The bad parts are that despite claiming to be open, the game is more or less linear (you can poke your nose wherever you want, but unless you're going in the right order, you'll bump into either outright gatekeepers or basically impossible fights), practically every interaction with any person or creature outside the villages that has more than a couple of lines of dialog ends with you killing them (i.e. there are no alternate solutions) and these villages are basically identical. Oh, and I cannot recall a single instance of even an attempt at humor -- this game takes itself very, very seriously.

I liked the TB combat of Xulima, but I played the game only for few hours. But for me, the fact, that the game is not so open, is a big plus. When the game is open to much, I always get bored after few days of playing and lose all interest,

First season of Wolf Among Us Season 1 is complete. I bought it during a sale.

 

Divinity: OS has a story that I didn't care for and the writing wasn't very good but it was still my GOTY of 2014. I enjoyed the exploration even if the last few areas are less good than the beginning of the game.

 

I'd elaborate more but my phone is dying and I'm at the airport.
