Opus Magnum.

 

This game is truly a magnum opus.

I'm beginning to feel like I'm never going to play another game besides FFXV again, ever. I need help. :disguise:

 

I mean, I try sometimes, but then I go right back to XV. Haven't been this game-single-minded since when played DK1/Diablo1/Caeser3 for literally years. I can replay the 1st 2/3 of XV over and over and over whenever I want a gaming fix between TV/film and real-life, never gets old.

 

...maybe a year after Square finally stops updating it and then another year for PC version and any modding shenanigans (if that pans out). Think Diablo4 or Borderlands 3 will be out by then? ....

Good. Stick to what makes you happy. I still play FONV and Bloodlines more than anything while fitting in bits of other games when I feel like it. Have no use for the majority of new releases, AAA nor Indie, the art of Cuphead being the lone exception.

Bought Sub-Nautica, so I'll give that whirl when I get home tonight.

Have restarted my FONV playthru for the 4th time now because of mods and windows 10. Been getting close to the strip and having it start ctd every 30 mins so been restarting and disabling mods each time.

I'm now from 105 plugins down to 36 plugins.

Thank God I love this game so much or else it'd been shelved by now.

Nuts. I just run with a music extender. The game is unstable enough bare bones.

Excited to hear your thoughts. I have seen this game multiple times on steam but never looked at it more than a diving simulator but I had never even looked at the steam page but after watching the trailer in the other thread it looks pretty cool.

As soon as I saw this I thought it must be by the Spacechem guy. Sure enough. This looks even more wildly fantastic.

 

I will probably get this next!

Now that I'm finished up both Far Harbor and Nuka World, I'm finding it hard to press on in the main game.  My completionist side is warring with me not wanting to slog through to the "end" of the main quest.

I reached a new personal best in Path of Exile, as I took my wimpy life leeching Deadeye (subclass of the Ranger) up to level 74 and then promptly died because I suck.

 

But at least I've gathered a reasonable amount of leveling gear now so when I restarted last night I got up to level 43 within a few hours. Also, I managed to get far enough to unlock the second to last Labyrinth (the labyrinth is a randomized zone where you can find special skill points for your subclass, it's also very good for leveling up quickly) so now I have the potential to reach much higher levels.

 

I also bought new inventory tabs so I can store all my completely useless unique items. I'm not joking, I've never played a game with so many useless uniques, and the ones that are useful never drops. Just as it should be. I love this game.

I haven't played a load of survival games, but Sub-Nautica is the best of the ones I've played. It has a decent narrative to push you along and give you a sense of story. It is pretty simple when it comes to gameplay but also has a lot of options. It is also a remarkable place to explore. Definitely worth my $20 at this point.

The problem isn't that there is a minimap, but how the dotted line draws away all your attention from anything else.

 

Luckily I'm not the only one with that issue:

 

 

I completely agree with this video, how games in general have moved, but also there are times where I like a little hand holding due to time constraints and in the witcher's case, some places not being named on the map and not being able to put your own points and notes on the map.

I think I may have been playing "just one more turn" of Endless Space 2 for the past 4 hours  :getlost:

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

You've already taken the first step towards healing by admitting you have a problem. I'm proud of you. :p

Why do my companions in FO4 decide the best time to have a conversation about their personal problems is right when we're in the middle of a dangerous firefight?

Had a convo about mini-games within games (most of which I can't stand) which reminded me of Might and Magic's Acromage. One of the very very few such mini-games that I ever liked. Yes it cheated sometimes I think but what AI doesn't. :p

 

 

 

I'm reinstalling Might and Magic 7 right now just so I can play Acromage. Maybe I'll play the whole game a bit too, if my back doesn't mind sitting at a desk for too long.

Oh and ... yeah, I know. It's just that sometimes I feel like I'm so out of the loop, not knowing anything about anything, being years behind, nothing to say since I'm not familiar with what most are playing. And all the spoilers you have to avoid. Or learn to not care about spoilers (which is mostly the way I went). :)

And then is Morrowind a game with an infamous quest where the directions given where so misleading people wandered around for hours.

As someone that hates having to google directions for games I rather have quest markers, if someone with more time than sense wants to turn them off and wander around for hours that's their prerogative.

That was only like 2 or 3 out of the MANY quests in Morrowind ;)

 

 

Does anyone know how many action points the different weapons in FO1/2 cost to use per round by chance? Cannot find the numbers on any wikis that Google is showing me sadly.

I spent so many hours playing pazaak in the KOTOR games.

 

Gwent was so addictive in Witcher 3.  I went from "this is so dumb" to "I NEED TO PLAY EVERY PLAYER I CAN FIND!"
