Thread: NOW what are you playing?

    Nearing completion of Dot Hack Episode 2 - Mutation. Good on the overall whole, but there isn't as many side quests as the 1st one.

    Also played Rage for a fair bit last night. God damn is that game poorly optimized for PC. On running it (the steam version) all seemed well until I tried turning the camera left or right and noticed textures popping out / reloading. I tried messing around with the ingame options, nope no fix, updated my gfx card drivers, nada. In the end I had to force some stuff on, on my gfx card, which didn't completely fix it, but made it more towards bearable. And apparently alot of people who played this on PC ran into this issue. What a major colossal fuck up by ID.

    Anyways issues aside, the game on the overall whole is quite good but it feels VERY MUCH like a poor man's Fallout 3. Your given quests/missions but not given any XP for it, just items, sometimes nothing for doing them, when you do get rewards for missions the game often doesn't even tell you that you got any so checking your inventory afterwards is a must. Unlike Fallout 3 from the get go the game world is VERY linear with only very light amounts of little side areas that you can visit.

    The racing aspects to the game I love. If there is an area of the game that shines its there. The rest of the game just feels like it wants to be Fallout 3, but it isn't so there's this confusion on whether its a straight out FPS or a RPG. Which is a shame. Other than that the game is quite good. Addictive if anything.

    Dust 514 will never be released.

    So I thought I'd pick up Ultima 7.

    The scale is impressive, I've barely explored a fraction of the land. The first few towns and a bit of wilderness. Loads of detail too. And the NPCs all seem quite individual, with their own little stories.

    While there is an in-game map, it's too large-scale to be useful and doesn't have my current location. Also I'm feeling the lack of a quest log.

    Combat is confusing - people charge around and flail about until something dies. Don't really feel in control.

    Also my guys are constantly hungry!

    Overall, I have a positive enough impression to stick with it.

    Buy a Sextant for your current position. You will then get a plus on the map. No help for the quest log, though, aside from the manual kind.

    Yes, you aren't. Just run with it; it's over quickly. Sometimes you may need to pause and use a healing potion on someone or cast a spell on harder foes.

    Yes, but larger meals help in this regard. Mutton keeps them fed for a while.

    Couple of days with LA Noire and I'm in the midst of Vice cases, while I've enjoyed the game this far it's definitely becoming a teensy bit repetitive in its format - particularly with the innocents doing footchases. The BD stuff was good though it did get a little hammer-horror at the very end.

    Trust me, once you get to arson you'll be riveted to your seat. Last few hours of the game are great.

    This.

    The ending really is the highpoint of the game.

    I'm on the Elysian fields case now. It's pretty solid.

    One thing that continually impresses is the star power... dude from Fringe just showed up and the fire chief is in Breaking Bad!

    Just finished Batman AC. Skipping the sidequests/Catwoman's last bit because I'm honestly fucking burnt out. I wanna play something else now. Just gotta decide what.

    Try playing Baldurs Gate straight for 3-4 months then you'll know the meaning of burned out.

    A couple of days ago I started (re-)playing Shadow of the Colossus. I don't *love* the game as much as ICO, but I definitely admire it just as much; there are few game worlds as evocative as SotC's. Down to the last two colossi now. Next up: Enslaved, with a side order of Stranger's Wrath, which I also started a few days ago. Love the Oddworld style, as always, but it's taking me a bit to get used to the actual gameplay.

    Was it the 360 version? I was thinking of getting that, but without pressure sensitive buttons I don't know how well it could play.

    forzest

    I have tried buy forzest before and must say that generic proscar causes less side effects though. I had terrible headache with Viagra which made sex impossible sometimes. With cialis I forgot about it. I would recommend it to anybody who has similar problems and this drug is above all praises.

    Bombs over Baghdaaaaaad

    Just beat Anomaly: Warzone Earth. 7 hours. The story is decent enough and the gameplay stays diverse enough to almost not get boring before it's over.

    Next up: Rochard, SkyDrift, and maybe some other games I picked up under the sale. Also Jeshibu just gave me a spare copy of HL2(only had a 360 version before), so I'm gonna be trying out some mods: that thing Kroakie made, Dear Esther, that "Water" thing. Are there any other HL2 singleplayer mods I need to play?

    The Stanley Parable of course.

    Radioatoryang (aka CampaignJunkie) is one of us (posts on TTLG & Darkmod.com) and there's his Radiator series, IF style tending on "domestic" themes... notably one where the PC is gay & in marriage counseling (IIRC). http://www.radiator.debacle.us/

    As for traditional mods, there's this list: http://www.quartertothree.com/game-t...ad.php?t=35749

    Yes thankyouverymuch between Esther and Stanley Parable I think I'm up to my neck in artfagmods already without resorting to playing an actual GAY SIM.

    Not sure whether you're being serious or whether you're doing an imitation of a complete idiot. If you like 'artfagmods', you should definitely give the Radiator series a try.

    It was indeed a joke. I might give the Radiator mods a whirl, somewhere later on down the road.
