Am quite addicted to Kingdom Come: Deliverance currently. I gave it a shot a few years ago on Xbox because it was on gamepass or something but couldn’t quite get into it mostly because the combat system was quite overwhelming and I found it extremely difficult with a controller, so I put it on the backburner. I picked it up again semi recently on a deep steam sale and now I can’t put it down. The combat plays so much better on a mouse and keyboard imo. It feels like a more realistic Oblivion, one of my absolute favorites from back in the day.
I got back into The End is Nigh because I had nothing better to do when I was sick and nearly cleared the first map. I wish there were more games like this out there, but I can only think of about 5 or so of them that really kick ass
Update: The last two months have seen no break from Yakuza. I finished 0, 1, and just finished 2 today. I’m not going for 100% because I don’t want to learn Majhong or get sucked into the gambling minigames. Started 3,
but just opening cutscenes on that one tonight. I’m looking forward to the new Yakuza coming out next year, going to see if I can catch up in time to play that one at release. I’m sucked into this soap opera now.
This thing is like GMod and Dreams put together, plus some really simple (yet thorough) visual scripting. It’s kind of hilarious to be able to just do 3D modelling and prototype game scenarios while also just sandboxing and dicking around in play mode. Def recommend
Finally started to play the Final Fantasy VII Remake after like 3 years… I’m a big fan of the original, including the great OST by Nobuo Uematsu and I was a bit afraid to be very disappointed, but I already watched longplays - mostly since I was busy with work but still wanted to see what they did with it, so I watched like 20 hour videos of the game while working lol…
So far, I really like it. Of course, I know what to expect and already saw all the nice old locations with the new graphics, but it’s still awesome to walk around there… I don’t like everything they changed, but it’s ok, at least they just updated and reworked the OST and didn’t make a completely new one with Pop songs or whatever lol… I think there is one pop song in one scene that they had to cut out of the longplay videos, so I’m very happy they restricted it to this one
I discovered the Yakuza series in 2019 and played through all of them starting with 0 in under a year, so I can definitely relate. Don’t forget about the Judgement series too, those are some of my favorite games ever.
Around when would you recommend giving them a try? They look interesting too, but I’m not sure when they take place and I don’t want them to refer back to some event and spoil it for me. Right now I’m in 2008 I think, in Yakuza 3.
I tried playing Starfield but it’s so incredibly boring and underwhelming.
what was your expectations? I’m actually loving it in every aspect.
I lost a few hours because a bunch of my saves deleted themselves, but no other real problems so far. I feel like the fast travel/maps are a bit clunky for a game in 2023.
Like, I really wish I could go to a quest and say “fast travel here (or as close to here as possible)”. Instead, you have to go to your quests, press the button to show it on the map, then find the node on the map you can fast travel to.
Other than that, wish I had more cargo space on my ship already, Space Disco Carl (that is my character name) has a lot of supplies to build the ultimate space disco of his dreams. Oh, also I wish I could have given Space Disco Carl a bigger afro.
I agree with this. You can have infinite storage in your room at the Lodge, though. that’s helped out early on. Classic bethesda loot goblin gameplay always leaves you carrying too much though.
