I'll heed your advice, Majestic. I haven't played it yet, but it looked so beautiful, and the sfx and all very nice as well.

 

Oh, it is beautiful all right:

 

 

Can be a bit overwhelming at first, like all games with a roguelike core mechanic. Feel free to ask if you need anything. :)

 

Yeah, How the **** they expect me to beat a batleship when I can't outrun or outgun it? Same deal with the ****ing corvettes.

The only vessel in the game that cannot be destroyed are the colonial warships. They can, however, be totally neutered by destroying all of their turrets. The Corvettes can be tougher to handle for new players, especially if you are new to using the Scout, which lacks the maximum energy capacity to take them down without using consumables. Using secondary weapons (missiles) will make them tremendously easier. The frigates are most easily destroyed by closing range on their aft and taking out their hard points--particularly the "blast generators". It will take skill, but can be done with a basic ship without perks if you're a good enough pilot. I'm a big fan of Everspace, and consider myself an expert at it. One thing in particular that I enjoy about it, is the arcade nature of each zone. I can get in 15 minutes of satisfying gaming, unlike many RPGs where you have barely even begun to play after 15 minutes.

I just got back from my family vaca in Australia and New Zealand, before that I got super busy with my work. I wonder how long I was away from the forums here, maybe 2 months? Meh. It's what happens when you have a life outside the net I guess. It's good to be back though :)

Anyway, tonight I'm firing it up and I will be playing Lego Marvel Super Heroes 1 as the 2nd is releasing in a week!

Also, nice to see a new member :)

I've been playing this game for a while (and I mean I got it while it was in alpha) I've heard people say that they have destroyed warships.

What bugs me is that I don't get a sense of progression, weapons don't get better. Each ship you unlock isn't better than the default one, and most of the skills are trite.
I mean, what's the ****ing point of even trying. Arcade is really hitting the nail on the head with this one, it feels like Tetris. You just play to kill time and have fun but beating it is optional and not worth the time.

DDO, which I'm still having issues with, and CK2. Steam says I have over 1000 hours in it and I started playing on the GamersGate version before Paradox switched to supporting only the Steam version. I can't wait for the China-ish DLC.

PS this thread is starting to display weirdly on my phone

I bought it late in beta. It was so polished that the full release didn't honestly change much. I'm surprised you don't feel progression. Having a ship with all, or even half of the perks fully upgraded is a tremendous difference in quality of life. Particularly when you get the crafting perks upgraded, you're very reliably using the best weaponry the game offers. While there are some weapons and items that are objectively better, the creators have taken pains to emphasize difference in play-styles, and accentuating pilot skill over itemization. This makes dog fights really fun. As towards the ships, the developers wanted a "different but equal" philosophy. The scout is relatively fragile, lacks endurance, and has less equipment, but is screaming fast, ultra maneuverable, and has access to a few good tricks. The gunship is it's inverse, and the default interceptor is a balance in between. While I liked the game, I didn't start loving until I unlocked the Scout. Easily the best and most enjoyable ship to fly. I have not yet purchased the DLC with the new ship, so I cannot comment on it.

I haven't touched FF-XV in something like 3.5 months (?). Wasn't going to play it again until Ignis DLC is released but then ecided I'd fire up the PS4 tonight and at least download/update the console, game, whatever else. Then curiously loaded a save.

 

--didn't take long for me to totally forget how to use the controller with the game. Finger-Fumble city

--oh is that what the Dream Egg ended up amounting to.

--oh that new Festival has new Assassin's themed team outfits (?), I must get those.

--but still sucking at the controller after 20 minutes, maybe tomorrow...

 

Can't wait for the Ignis DLC tho. First DLC trailer that had me half-excited vs. "ho-hum." Never did play Episode Prompto.

I'd recommend not playing Everspace with a controller. It's a shooter in space, it was pretty much made for keyboard and mouse controls. :)

Does it have proper flightstick support? It better.

Grinding along in Saboteur. Very much like Just Cause, but is still fun. Also spent some time in Overwatch comp, almost 2k rating (I guess people are really garbage this season)
