I've been fooling around Skyrim mods and stuff so I want to talk to you about boobies.  I go to a mod that looks as if it might be interesting... especially the mods that add quests and content, etc, but also mods that give you interesting armour or weapons, make things weightless or change them in other ways, etc.  Fun things.  As I peruse the images I notice that most of them seem to have women with boobies that are totally and impossibly huge and barely covered.  Ok, I understand the barely covered bit but boobs that are jutting out by many many many many many inches, and sometime feet?  Not only is that NOT attractive but it's painful for women to even see them on images!  Nothing breaks a woman's mood more than imagining your boobies getting caught in a cupboard or a drawer or whatever.  Do you guys go insane with the boobie sliders?  If so, fuck off and I hope your dick gets stuck in a mulcher you bastard.

I just got finished with the main campaign for Sniper Elite 4 (still have some dlc missions to do) that I bought during the Steam summer sale.  It's probably one of the most satisfying shooter games I've played in awhile.  My Steam stats say I've played 24 hours so far but it's probably closer to 20 of actual playing because of idling in the menus.  Each mission can take 2-3 hours if you want to complete all the side missions and find all the collectables.  The shooting is well done and you can adjust how realistic you want it.  Since I'm a casual scrub lord, I put most of the settings on normal but I still found it fairly challenging.  If you're familiar with the series, you know about the kill cam.  Few things are as satisfying as killing someone with a shot to their balls and watching them explode with x-ray vision or hitting a grenade on a dude's belt and watching them explode.  You can try and play the missions by going the stealth route or run and gun.  Either way gets the job done.  If you find it on sale again, I highly recommend playing it.

After several months of puttering around with other casual games I finally went back and finished the last badge/achievement in Bejeweled 3.

Now I am going to have to find something else to putter around on....

I'm playing on a vanilla WoW server. I can't believe how much I like the game in base state.

It really was a gloriously fun game for a long while. They just listened to the part of the fanbase that spoke to their own id rather than listening to their business sense.

I kinda think that their business sense worked out just fine for them.

In what way? The game's doing so poorly they don't release sub numbers anymore, and they've done nothing to rekindle the interest they once had. The money they'd make off classic/progression servers alone seems like an astronomical amount they're just leaving on the table.

The base game was built for hardcores from the ground up. It was good, but not great, especially at raid level.

Yeah, Vanilla was really, really grindy and unfun for non-raiders (also, leveling a character to 60 took literal months)... but still better than everything else out on the market at that time. BC and WOTLK were both significant steps forward, I think.

I've been playing a lot of Factorio.

I am terrible at laying out any sort of sensible arrangement that results in a good supply chain.

It's the first game in a while that's engaged my attention, that I want to play when I get home.  So it has that going for it.

I hit the point in Elder Scrolls Online where some punk started giving me a lecture about how my dps in a vet dungeon needed to come up by 1k and so on. So much for ESO. I'm not doing the whole "I need BIS gear, practice my rotations, take optimization food, etc" schtick again in any MMO. Boring.

Yeah I had a similar convo with the people I raid with occasionally in GW2 a couple of weeks ago. I said I was getting Runes of leadership, which mean I can remove conditions with my guardian shouts and the boons from my shouts last 15% longer, and I was treated to a 20 minute constant wall of text about why I should follow the Meta and by not doing it I was fucking up everyone else and reducing my DPS by x%, and how the "experts" had mathematically calculated the best possible setups. Yeah. because my old man reflexes means that I cant instantly dodge shit anymore, and the Meta spits on any kind of toughness or health and only likes MAXIMUM DEEPS. So my I guess DPS while instantly dead would be the best evah!!!

Fuck raiding.

Yeah, the only reason I'd ever put up with it is if I'm playing with a bunch of friends and we're really trying to get to some new tier of content. Not because some random poopsocker in LFG starts demanding this and that from me like he's my boss.

So another MMO down. It was a reasonably decent solo game for a good while. Moving on to Tyranny, which is, ok? There is something about the retro BG2/Icewind Dale interface as it's made a minor comeback that I can't really get into any more. I'm not sure why. I think sometimes it's because I think the abilities/powers borrow too much from MMO-style rotations rather than being more like the old Gold Box/BG etc. where I had a better grasp of the powers I had and the way to use them (including to cheese certain fights).

*raises eyebrow*

As a boss IRL I would never demand something from an employee.  It's always politely ask, or push gently in the right direction.

I mean, unless you were in deep shit, and I was running a documentation trail on you in case we needed to terminate you.

Someone yelling at people like that in a game is just a plain old asshole.

The MMOisation of single player RPGs is real and crappy. Obsidian are just bad Devs, though.

Crafting is the thing that gets me though, makes sense in a lot of MMOs, but is often just inventory spam you never use that slows down and adds complexity to systems that should be much simpler in singer player.

As Kail pointed out, they ran the game in such a way as to make vast amounts of money from it.  They still make substantial amounts of money at relatively little cost to themselves, with the costs of the game amortised loooong ago.  No MMO has ever performed anywhere near as well.  Criticising their business sense for achieving the greatest success in MMO history is, however, kinda typical MMO fan territory ("IF THEY HAD ONLY PANDERED TO ME INSTEAD OF ALL THOSE PEOPLE...")

And they were never going to throw more money "rekindling interest" in what is now an ancient game.  It requires little capex to keep trundling as a cash cow along with those whom Raph Koster's Theory of Fun suggests should have grokked it* and moved on years ago, while a far better ROI can be achieved by moving the same resources onto new game development.  WoW was in diminishing returns territory years ago.  As regards them "leaving money on the table", I guess that they have looked at the same thing you have and have come to a rather different conclusion, again based on ROI, and if I am absolutely forced to decide whether I think they (armed with a team of experienced analysts and business figures with all the necessary data available) or some people on a forum (armed with some really sweet high-end raid gear) are better-placed to make that call, I am going to lean ineluctably towards one side of that choice.

I'm pretty sure FF XIV is successful.

That's actually what I've been playing lately. I've tried it off and on since the 2.0 relaunch, but after Legion, I'm just burnt out on WoW. XIV at this point has been very refreshing to play, and the XP boost that they ran for the last month or so helped keep my attention span focused on just getting the Main Story Quests done up to Heavensward as a Paladin. Now I'm focusing on a Machinist to continue to the story.

I also started FFXIV again this spring having last played it around the original launch (I still have the CE box for that somewhere). It's been interesting to see how much it has improved over the years (Noclip's documentary on the subject was surprisingly good).

Been on a bit of a RPG binge lately, after slogging through Dragon Age: Inquisition (I'd echo the comment on single player games being MMO-fied), decided to try Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark and Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer.

Hordes of the Underdark was dissapointing, but Mask of the Betrayer was brilliant. It's probably the game that I've played that's closest to Planescape: Torment, and I imagine it's one a lot of people have overlooked.

Still playing Breath of the Wild. Started playing Tyranny, but the pull to do every shrine brought me back. I don't think I'm insane enough to try for every Korrok seed.

Tyranny seems neat, although the early game sections of these new style Baldur's Gates can be a bit tedious, even with all of Tyranny's interesting choice based world setup.

My game of the year choice is going to be a hard one. The craftsmanship and style of Persona 5 probably pulls it ahead. While BOTW is a lot of fun and probably the best Zelda game I've played; there's a lot I find issue with and a lot of potential missed. It could have been so much better than what it it is with just a few tweaks.

We started out conservative/hidey, but all that meant was that whoever ganked us had a big stash to plunder.  Ever since we went more aggressive, we've both had more fun and gotten more kills - being the aggressor lets us dictate when and how the fight starts, even if we don't always win.
