I don't really believe any of the story was actually cut, I think it went more along the lines of developers realizing some time around the start of 2016 that they should also fill those environments with some plot or something

Just checked, I put in 40 hours for DE:MK.  Another 20 hours probably would have resulted in me not finishing.

I kind of never got over the fact that the Illuminati ...

 

 

went through the trouble of specifically engineering a supervirus to kill the business magnate who could ruin their plans when, I don't know, cyanide could suffice. I get that the Orchid is probably supposed to be the precursor of the Grey Death in the original Deus Ex game, but this seemed like an overly convoluted way of tying the Eidos Montreal entries in the series to the original game

Started to play 3 days ago Star Ocean 5. Its combat system is not so refined as Tales of Zestiria, but I still have fun. I actually love Private Actions, lot of them are making me laugh, and there is tons of them. The story is little bit slowpaced, but that's probably because of me being obsessed with side quests :-D

Finished the main quest in Skyrim.  I had to chuckle over the fact Alduin was a pushover in a fight.  I had a tougher time taking on random fire mages that keep lobbing fireballs at you.

Started Satellite Reign yesterday because it was on sale and I have good memories of Syndicate.

 

Enjoy it so far.

It gets very one not after a while though, did enjoy it though just not much joy when every mission becomes everyone walking in an Indian file and using cloaking devices.


I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Agreed. Satellite Reign starts out great, but it gets incredibly repetitive after a while. Every mission becomes essentially the same. That's where Shadow Tactics, in my opinion, shows its brilliance. It's not exactly the same genre, but there are enough similarities that I feel a comparison is fair. Shadow Tactics does a far superior job of periodically introducing new mechanics, and even when all mechanics have been introduced they present new challenges with clever enemy placement and environmental crafting. In fairness, it's a lot easier to do that in a level-based game than in a semi-open world game like SR. Also, I don't want to sound like I'm taking a dump on SR. I thoroughly enjoyed it for some 12-15 hours before the repetitiveness started wearing on me and I feel I got my money's worth. Hopefully they make a SR2. Edited by Keyrock

Giving DA:I a try. Much better game than DA2.

 

But I have caught myself quietly singing while playing.

 

If I was the only person who can save the world,

I'd gather Elfroot in the morning.

I'd gather Elfroot in the evening.

All over Thedas.

 

I'd gather Elfroot in the face of danger.

I'd gather Elfroot as a warning.

I'd brew with it a potion for the love between the Templars and the Mages

Aaaaaaall over Thedas.

I got Shadow Tactics a while back just cuz I heard you praise it. The missions are well designed and the mechanics are interesting, I just have a beef with strategy games in that all of them try to get you to play them a certain way. I will say that micromanaging in Shadow Tactics is more viable than in SR.

Taking a step back in time, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic. Finally made it to Dantoonie and became a Jedi. Forgot what a bore Taris was.

To me Taris was the best level. So much to do there.

Yeah, I liked Taris.  It was the only level that made playing as anything but a Force user fun.

i made myself a christmas present and bought Doom on steam. the download will probably take more time to complete than making a full completionist run of the game at the highest difficulty


The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

Stupidity leads to willful ignorance - willful ignorance leads to hope - hope leads to sex - and that is how a new generation of fools is born!


We are hardcore role players... When we go to bed with a girl, we roll a D20 to see if we hit the target and a D6 to see how much penetration damage we did.

You can probably skip the vast majority of the elfroot. I had several hundred extra when I finished the game, and I stopped going out of my way to gather it probably halfway through the game (admittedly, it took me 130 hours to finish with all the DLC.) I didn't even pick up the bonus herb perk until I'd pretty much stopped gathering herbs (it was the only semi-useful one left.)

 

Playing XCom 2 with a slew of mods. A Better Advent 2 makes the game so much better (and harder.....lots harder.) Recently finished my first retaliation mission of the campaign (it was a Haven defense from Additional Mission Types) and ended up killing 51 enemies on that mission (and the final reinforcement pod was all captain variants....) Only had two minor injuries as well, so all in all a good mission. :)

So I traveled through time to a point where the world had gone to hell in a hand-basket. And do you know what I noticed? Nowhere in that future was there any elfroot!

Ergo: the player character gathering all that elfroot is unwittingly destroying the world!

What kind of blasphemy is this!? This is an RPG! If there's any elfroot, you're going to need that elfroot and therefore, such elfroot needs to be elfrooted... Err, gathered.
