Started a new run on Fallout: New Vegas, after my first attempt at Hardcoremodus went nowhere. It's still sooo good. I just enjoy th worldbuilding and the excellent writing. I arrived at Novac and will take my time. But right now, it's still the perfect ending for the Fallout-Series.

I finished the first floor in Tower of Time.  Most of the battles on hard difficulty weren't especially challenging, so long as I paid attention, but there were a few that required a ton of maneuvering and tactical retreating.  In particular, line of sight was (and will likely continue to be) a key factor.  The battle arenas usually have objects that break line of sight, plus there are abilities that can do that too, provided you chose those upgrade paths.  Breaking line of sight immediately breaks life drain spells, as well as providing safety from ranged attacks.  Of course, it works both ways.

 

Edit:  Has anyone here tried epic difficulty yet?

I am currently playing The Witcher 3, I should have played this game a long time ago as it really is good.

Does that include the mausoleum fight?

I have it installed, but I just must wait to buy new computer.

Started my interupted run of Starcrawlers. Still continue to go the "ethical hacking" route :p

It's fun game, but sometimes the fights can get pretty boring and long, if you do not upgrade your gear properly. I was lucky with weapon drops, but not so much luck with armour and shields :/

Hope the fun will last until the end :D

I've pretty much given up on my steam copy of KOTOR 1. Tried every solution possible on the internet and it simply doesn't work. I'd play it on the Xbox One X but Microsoft doesn't let you purchase 360/OG Xbox  games without a credit card. :/

 

Funny how you don't need to have a credit card registered to your account when buying an Xbox One game!

What's your setup? The game's biggest problem is that some classes are simply leaps and bounds ahead of others.

My main is Hacker, and I run around with Prototype, Smuggler and Engineer. To be honest, my biggest issues are still with gear drops. Mobs are sometimes ahead of my equipment, even if I backtrack some side missions. My Smuggler died in last two missions because of that.

Co-op rule. It's basically a more unforgiving GTA in a jungle setting, with some "military shooter" touches thrown in for good measure. I don't think I'd play it solo, but in co-op it's a blast. We'll probably purchase it after the trial weekend ends, it's so good.


My friend playing it says that is the case, same with The Division. Sadly we can't get a foursome for it though.

Playing Persona 3 Portable. I'm not that far in but I have managed to get some S-Links started and even leveled one or two up to level 3. It's fun, although I don't think that Tartarus is all that great to explore. From what I have played so far, I like it more than Persona 4 Golden.

Prototype and Engineer are pretty bad. My advice would be to grab a Soldier to tank. Get him an 80% heavy shield, a legionnaire heavy armor and the accessory from early in the storyline (from the fight with the robot dogs) and go for Flare + Bouncing Betty early on, then Meat Shield.

 

Bouncing Betty and your hacker viruses have great synergy. Just watch the world burn. Errr, eh, or rather the enemies. ;)

Still playing the mini-game known as Ansel ... I mean FFXV. But I'm running into the usual issue of finding it hard to motivate past the open world into the linear story sections. Like with a lot of games, it's always the start/middle I like to replay. Still, I need that high level save on PC, darnit. I shall have to force myself to muddle through the rest of the story. Once you're in post-game it's all rainbows and fun again. Just have to make myself get there. >.>

This is why I rarely buy very old games on Steam. Unlike GoG they generally don't seem to be altered to run well on current versions of Windows so I'm always hesitant. I'm sure some work just fine but ...

I'm not sure what battle you're referring to.  To the best of my knowledge, I cleared that level out completely.

The first level has a mausoleum near the exit that you can interact with. Looting it causes an ambush by four rather angry elite guardians. They're massive HP sponges at that point in the game and are almost impossible to kite.

I guess I missed that battle.  I did the ambush battle at the well and the optional battle where the game specifically tells you "maybe you should come back to this later" but I don't remember that battle.  Can I go back to a level once I've gone down to another one?

Sure, you can freely move around or you can click on the first level when leaving the village.

Now I remember.  I (wisely) decided not to disturb the mausoleum the first time I encountered it.  I went back and fiddled with it to give it a try and those elite guardians are indeed really strong.  I think I'll come back when I'm a bit stronger and/or have a 4th party member.  It might not be impossible on hard difficulty at this stage if I completely respecced Kane to lower the cooldown on his wall ability as much as possible, but I doubt I could lower it enough right now to get it to the point where I perpetually can have a wall up.  The key would be to wall off 3 of the guardians so that I only have to deal with 1 at a time, I get OBLITERATED if I have to face all 4 at the same time.  Their damage output is brutal and they have way too much HP and armor to bring down quickly.
