In Shadowrun Hong Kong, does changing to Easy affect the Matrix? I do not like the way they made it.

The combat's easier if you're caught. In most cases you can simply kill every security program on easy without repercussions.

I still have the sniffers zipping around as if someone had taken an old DOS game and forgot to adjust it to new processor power then? Meh.

Just got finished with my annual Bethesda binge where I play 20 to 40 hours of a Bethesda game within a single week until I encounter a quest breaking but and give up. I spent about an hour trying to force the dang quest forward with console commands before I threw my hands up, deleted my save, and uninstalled.

Which quest was it?

The dungeon by Dawnstar. First a door wouldn't open so I toggled culision and walked through it. Then a scripted sequence bugged out and I tried to force the quest to the next stage and got stuck in a dialog. Finally, I gave up.

 

 

Do you have the unofficial patch installed? If not, you really should grab it (goes for *every* Bethesda ES/FO game btw). I can't recall having any game breaking issues once I installed that (well, not in Skyrim anyway)

I do. They're the first mods I grab for every Bethesda game.

Ended up buying Vampyr.  I'm actually enjoying myself, although the combat encounters can get annoying because of how easily you run out of stamina/blood.

 

Also makes it really difficult trying to play as a "good" person since I'm missing out on so much XP from not feeding off all these NPCs.

Yeah, no idae why they changed the Matrix to a real time stealth mini game. It's a stain on an otherwise good game in an interesting setting.

Yeah well I liked the reworked Matrix, especially compared to the dull nothing that the original was, and there's nothing any of you can do about it! :p

And I strongly dislike those timed puzzles. It's as if someone said: "We want to make a great RPG! What other RPG was truly great? Alpha Protocol! What was the worst thing one could copy from Alpha Protocol? Hacking!"

Did you play Kingdom of Amalur perchance and like the Dispel mini-game?

I tried it. Was dispelling part of chest opening? I did hate that. :D

The dispel mini-game in KoA might be the worst thing ever programmed, even worse than the Conficker virus.

Normally I don't mind QTE mini-games, but I concur. Next to the UI of Mass Effect Andromeda, the dispelling in KoA is the worst game design I've ever seen.

When I played Prey, using mouse and keyboard, I found the hideous hacking mini-game a pain in the crack.  Wiggling locks in F:NV and Skyrim felt like a cakewalk.

Still that dispel game was possibly worse.

After the chore to get through Sen's Fortress, I was able to kill Iron Golem and moved slowly to Anor Londo. I am dieing (how man writes that correctly in english O.o) a lot, I have probably very bad build and using mostly my Dragon Sword upgraded to +2 and sometimes my Pyromancy Fireball. Thankfully, I was able to find some rings hidden in Sen's Fortress, so it is little bit easier now. Unfortunately I am sometimes pretty clumsy and jump the wrong way and kill of myself on the narrow ledges everywhere in the game :D

Dead Rising 4 still and started a new playthrough for Kotor 2 because I am in a Star Wars mood, lately, for whatever reason.

I'm starting to think I really suck in STO. It's taking me forever trying to grind out all these Gamma Recruit tasks and I die multiple times in like every space mission I queue for. I die a lot in the story missions too and I'm pretty sure those are supposed to be easy.
