Dauntless Open Beta. Or I would be, if the servers hadn't died.

 

Update: Back up. Do you enjoy doing bosses, and only bosses, in MMO dungeons (not raids)? Then this game is for you. If you want a little more... eh.

Finished Halo 2. It was certainly better than the first game.

...and now I am playing Halo 3.

Finishing the fight yo!

The Fall 2: Unbound

Not sure how to rate it compared to the first one yet, but it's promising.

Not something I'm playing, but I found this accompanying Bingo card for the Super Best Friends' playthrough of Detroit humorous nonetheless (link rather than image posted since it contains some profanity and I can't be bothered to swab over the offending word in Paint and upload the censored version onto Imgur):

Still, I actually had a somewhat positive opinion of Heavy Rain (although that's about where my experience with Quantic Dream games ends), as I actually found segments of it genuinely tense in an enjoyable way:

Got little bit stuck at StarCrawlers. I can't get through main mission even when its recommended level is lower than mine. My gear can't keep up with damage output. And in random missions, some megacorporations have put bounties on me, so sometimes I get literally raped with heavy commando mobs with over 20k HP, which slowly grind down my HP.

Thankfully I am at very good standing with Workers United faction, and they should provide some help against bounty hunters. But I never tried out that "favour" so I do not know if it really works as it reads in description.

The other is to get some better gear through savescumming. Because the game has randomly generated loot, which I kinda do not generally really like in games.

Played a little bit of Medal of Honor: Airborne. The shooting mechanics are solid, both the enemy and the friendly A.I are well done and the atmosphere is spot on! To me it is the best MoH game next to Allied Assault. I have also played MoH: Frontline and MoH: Rising Sun but I didn't like those all that much.

What's your line-up?

 

I mostly used a Force Psyker (Hurlshot) for shielding, a Hacker (Labadal) for healing and then a Cyberninja (Shadysands) and my own Void Psyker for the damage.

 

Basically I took out their shields, Hurlshot gave us shields, Shady cut them into ribbons, and Labadal made sure we staid on our feet.

Main is Hacker, second is Smuggler and the next two are Prototype and Engineer. It worked so far with no issues, just the last two missions I’ve tried kicked my ass little bit.

Hacker is for stunning and charming, Smuggler use the gamble skills and stunning, Prototype is for tanking and debuffing with fire and lowering their damage output, and Engineer for massive AoE damage with his bots.

Level 26 or 27, and most missions were just a breeze so far. With two exceptions. Which were not crazy hard either, but the last mission for Riggo’s Brewery really is OP.

I had one of each class to swap in to try something new. Prototype is a good tank. Engineer didn't fit my playstyle.

I was thinking few times about that. The swap ins out of party do not gain any XP right?

Engineer's bot build was interesting to play for me. Especially when I found out what does the fire one do. I always liked to play PCs with minions. But I think he is the weakest one in my current party. Still do not want to kick him out.

Yeah, they don't get xp so you end up farming missions a bit to get them to keep up.

To bad. We'll see if I can get some loot in some safer sidemissions or get lucky with armor at the black market.

Everyone's saying how Deadfire is so easy but I'm not far in and already hit the point where just sitting back and watching combat is resulting in my death. Maybe I'm going places I shouldn't be yet, but really I was expecting Story Mode to be easier, like where I can kill anything with one hit of my fists without having to equip any gear. Unfortunately this is not so, and even when I win it just drags on. I think I need a mod that reduces all enemies to 1hp each.

Did you turn off level scaling or set it to only scale upwards? Because enemy placement can be really weird without full scaling. I turned it off and got waylaid by pirates way above my level right out of the tutorial - and right next to the first place you go right after getting the your ship fixed, so it was definitely not the case of being someplace I wasn't supposed to go.

Can't remember, will check when I play again tomorrow (it's probably on whatever the default is). This isn't random encounters though, just stuff in Neketaka.

 

There's also the usual annoyance with enemies immune to piercing weapons and stuff like that. I remember that kind of thing really putting me off from even getting out of the starting dungeon in MoTB. Logic be damned, I can't be bothered changing my weapons for different enemies, not when I'm supposedly playing a difficulty mode meant to be trivial.

Immunities were introduced to PoE with White March after whining on the forum. Like a lot of other things. All in the name of balance in a single player game.

That just means you're at the peak now. Give it one or two more levels and you'll start mopping the floor with everything. In my second playthrough I'm now also again at the point where I'm nearly insta-gibbing most enemies.

Had a total party wipe on the mosaic setpiece fight, as well as on some skellingtons under the temple area, for what it's worth. Probably should be a huge blow to my ego, but it's just annoying really to have to reload after sitting back for a few minutes watching my units fail miserably. I'm level 6 or thereabouts I think.

 

Granted I didn't have the best gear equipped - everyone just had their default gear since the last thing I want to do is inventory management - but checking my bags afterwards the better stuff I had would only be better by 1 armour or 5-10% damage anyway so it wouldn't have been a major factor.

With the Engineer you may also get lucky and get some loot codes in random missions. Write them down and trade them at the black market.
