 ZombieSigne

I finished Little Nightmares.  It was good.  Had some allegorical stuff that's fun to pick over if you like that sort of thing (but not, like, Bioshock Infinite levels of being up its own butt).  Some really cool stuff with the camera too -- there aren't any cutscenes, but they'll do interesting things with how they frame particular sections (like messing with the distance and the depth of field) that make it feel very cinematic.  I could actually see myself playing through it again just to enjoy how nice it all looks.

I didn't like GTA4, but I do like GTA 5 so much that I bought it once on 360 and then the updated one for PS4.  Of course: Grove Street 4 Lyfe, but Franklin and Lamar are pretty good.  You can, in fact, visit the Grove Street cul-de-sac but it does look different.

AC Syndicate is a long-ass game.  Maybe it seems longer because it is similar enough to Unity that I feel like I'm playing one very long game.

Yeah, I found it kind of odd how the hood was so engraved in my mind that I got upset that it was done wrong and there was no body armor around the corner in the river. Like, give me a goddamned Rider easter egg, an EZ lookin dude smoking outside his house or something! Even some OG tagging. Bah.

I had to exert willpower to not buy it for the XBoneX thus far. We'll see how it goes after I finish RDR. Now that I'm a dirty console whore, I'll likely buy VI for console and again when the better PC version comes out.

The new Hitman content is pretty good.  Super dumb stuff, but in the best way.  The sniper scenario is kinda meh, but everything else is rad.

Had a games night last night with some friends, which I think I haven't done in a decade. Hooked the PC up to the 4K TV and had an absolute ball playing rocket league, overcooked, jackbox party pack and lethal league. Would've played some Sonic Racing as well but my PC couldn't take it with the graphics at max on 4K!

Same here, waiting for a dom5 game to start (some people are slow to upload their pretenders) and waiting for the last dom4 game to end (astral corruption by the abysian player really ground the game progression to halt).

Other than that it's CK2 (until the next Stellaris or HOI4 patch comes out)

Finished up Elex. Kinda gets wonky with dialog choices at the big showdown, but it also sets up what I had strongly hoped would be a trilogy. Definitely the strongest PB game yet, and the pew pew and jetpacks kept it fun. After 80-90 hours or whatever, not sure I'm going to try another playthrough, but it's tempting. Great game.

After all these years, FINALLY starting up RDR! Love the atmosphere and music, the older graphics really aren't very noticeable imo (more the console limitations than the age, I think). Just spent the afternoon hanging out outside the ranch doing some hunting and enjoying the random events that pop up. Tutorials seem a bit weak, just kinda fumbling through, lock on target seems real iffy compared to GTA. I was getting swarmed by outlaws after doing a bounty, must've killed a couple dozen before some bystander got in the way, got shot which put a bounty on me, and instantly a posse showed up and took me out. Meh.

Also really wish I could lock the minimap to north, hate spinny maps (and afaik all PC GTA ports have allowed locking it). And the big one, no quicksave. I don't know why console games have such a need to be casual unfriendly like that. Not even to save scum, just to drop out when I want to, rather than be forced to haul all the way back to the ranch to sleep. Makes no sense, and coming from Elex where I could save at will, it's glaring.

Still, can overlook most of the flaws because it seems to have nailed the atmosphere and it's some fun tooling around the desert with good voice work.

Got started on Assassin's Creed Origins.

I like it well enough--maybe as much as Black Flag, so far; much more than Syndicate, which I really disliked.

I am just never going to love the way that one style of game (the Batman Arkham games, AC, Mad Max, etc.) does 'open world', though--where you don't so much 'discover' a world that feels world-like as wander from attraction to attraction in a very very elaborate amusement park. I do at least love wiping out a base of guards--it's a nice combination of twitchy game play and strategic thinking. I don't know that I could ever fully explain why Skyrim/Fallout completely satisfy me in how they think about being a "world" and AC never will unless it makes a shift of some kind.

I think I need to get a Switch and play Breath of the Wild, but we'll see.

I guess I must be one of the broken ones, because I really liked Risen and will probably continue through the Piranha Bytes catalog at a later time. I got all of the Risen games in a the Autumn sale for $12.50, and the first one has been worth that. The last chapter (and chapter 3 for that matter) is kind of a slog. The auto-leveled lizard dudes don't really stop doing a butt load of damage to you unless you fight everything super carefully. Nothing, however, is really hard to fight anymore and when you have a companion, it's a cakewalk. Something about the game just works, maybe it's the exploration, maybe it's the novelty of the game despite its jankiness. The build diversity is a little lacking as you're kind of shoehorned into a role via faction choice, but I've liked playing a melee rogue thus far.

Started Xenoblade Chronicles 2 over the weekend. I don't remember Chronicles X being this weaboo-ish, but goddamn this game is Japanese in a way that I reserved for Persona games alone. The character designs are ridiculous, especially Pyra. There's just a ton of boobage and wacky Anime cutscene stuff here going on. Despite that, this appears to be a pretty well done and complex game. It's like X but a lot more of everything. The combat is fine, but there is a lot of information being presented to you, and I don't quite have the timing down. This game might be best played in the undocked state as there seems to be some button lag (at least with salvaging) on the pro controller. Mobile, I can only play for so long, due to neck issues. I would be hesitant to recommend this game to just anyone, as you pretty much need to be really comfortable with JRPGs (think Persona/Shadow Hearts/Grandia level of comfortable). Unlike some reviewers, I really haven't had an issue with pacing. It opens up at a pretty decent rate, and you're knee deep in shit to do by around the 3-4 hour mark depending on how fast you play.  You barely notice it, however, and the time has been passing by rapidly. Death is painless and the fast travel options are numerous, so it's not particularly ponderous to play.

They went back to non-scaled for Elex. Also, faction = class is kinda their thing, but it's been eased a bit in Elex, so if you like melee, you can always do that. But there are optimal paths, like Clerics allow you to add elemental damage to tech swords, Outlaws can craft projectiles, etc. I got a ranged buff for being a cleric, but I used a single named gun with storebought ammo most of the game.

I finished Risen and made it like 90% through Risen 2 before I just couldn't take the setting anymore. I had also finished Gothic 1 & 2 (including the expansion which was cool),

I'm not even sure how related any of the Xeno games are to each other but I didn't like Xenogears so I've always ignored that series.  I think I need to give Chronicles 2 a chance, it seems like my kind of game. 

I'm currently playing League again  awesome, for real.  I think there's like 15 new champions since I played last but the items haven't changed too much, so my first couple ARAMs went well.

I love doing that stuff.  You might want to take a look at Ultimate Chicken Horse, Duck Game and BroForce, which have all been hits with my crew for 4-player couch gaming.  Gang Beasts is also pretty fun.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 might be the best non-Persona JRPG that I've played since the PS2 era. Granted, that's not saying a whole lot, but so far it's really outstanding.

It's hard to put down, and considering I'l probably still be trying to finish it  during winter vacation time; I can just take it with me. Apparently the mobile graphics are significantly degraded, but I really didn't notice it during the 2 hours of my son's chess class.

Anyone get Skyrim on the Switch and have any crashing issues? I've heard some reviews saying it crashes a lot and some that haven't run into any crashing, just your standard Bethsoft bugs.

No crashing so far, weird sound glitches on occasion though. Only once or twice a loud static noise took over for footsteps. Jarring, but not game breaking. The resolution is noticeably downgraded in handheld, but I mean... playing Skyrim on the go? Yeah, it's freaking cool.

It's the same old Skyrim though, nothing new there.

Finished as much as I am going to of AC Syndicate, minus Jack the Ripper.  But I'm going to put it down now.

I picked up Captain Toad's Treasure Tracker again and wasted a little time on it.  That was nice.

Still working through LEGO City Undercover with my wife, as well as my own save file because I missed some trophies somehow in multiplayer.

I'm not set on what I'm playing next.  Might be AC Origins but there is a great chance that I'll pick up Fallout 4 again.  There are also a few other LEGO games that I want to work on.

Cheddar told me about Lineage 2 on mobile and for some reason I downloaded it.  I almost made it through character generation.  Will try again later.

Origins is continuing to be fun, though if I NEVER again have to play a game where my character gets poisoned/knocked out/betrayed by someone who is obviously the secret villain I'm hunting but nevertheless the game compels my character to trust him naively, I will be a happy gamer. It is the dumbest of all dumb story cliches and in a game that ostensibly lets me move about freely it's especially dumb. If a game's writers really want to surprise me, at least try hard not to make the NPC who is supposed to be an ally twirl his mustache and drop hints about how villainous he is.

Hmm, yeah, I didn't even realize they were related at all... I think I played one on the PS2 ten or fifteen years ago?  Question for anyone who's played it, but is Xenoblade Chronicle 2 playable without knowing anything about Xenoblade Chronicles the first, aside from I guess Shulk's move list in Smash Bros?

Yes. While technically a sequel the world is new as are the characters and story.

The combat feels similar and the world mechanics are somewhat similar, but you don't need any knowledge of the other to enjoy this one.

Too much boobage to play this one in front of the family. They really ramped up the T&A factor. Almost every non-male blade is wearing the bare minimum for clothing.

I am going to try to resist jizzing all over this thread, but guys...Fallout 4 came out on VR yesterday.  You may have heard grumbling and some mixed reviews due to some day one graphics bugs...and while that is a fair complaint, they already have a beta patch that fixed the issues.  With that out of the way, what remains is the most profound experience I have ever had in a video game, ever.  It looks unbelievable, I literally cannot wrap my head around what they have pulled off.  Un-fucking-real.

I have been fortunate enough to try some really cool stuff by being a part of this first wave of VR, but god damn.  I was looking forward to this like crazy, but I never expected Bethesda would actually exceed my expectations.  The thought of Skyrim coming (non PS4, thx) and maybe even re-doing FO3....fuggedaboutit.

Been waiting for the next gen of the systems.  Give them more times to work out the kinks and get bigger libraries.  Then I'll make the plunge (maybe I'll buy one to take with me to my box in Iraq if I choose to go there next).

Hey Cyrrex, are you playing on Vive or Oculus, and what video card?

I'm as big a FO4 addict as there is, but I'm remaining patient waiting for some Oculus optimizations to show up. It was heartening to hear that apparently they didn't restrict mods in any ways.

I'm also in the 'next gen' camp. This gen looks decent, so once they get some kinks worked out I'll probably hop on.

Also, more interested in Rockstar getting into the ring, Bethesda's stuff always gets old quick for me but I always go back to GTA at least once a year. Also, a good implementation of java minecraft in VR. Then I'd be good with it.

Vive, and on a 1080.  Not really sure what the deal is with the Oculus stuff, I just figured it being Zenimax that Oculus would get the official middle finger.  That said, can you not just play it through Steam and take advantage of the beta fixes?

The graphical leap they pulled off with this one actually feels Next Gen.  I can't believe how sharp it is, way better than anything else I have seen.  It will start to get fuzzy off in the distance, but that can't be helped.

Also, a good implementation of java minecraft in VR. Then I'd be good with it.

Que?  I am not sure what you mean here, maybe I misunderstand...the VR implementation of minecraft is basically perfect.  If I wasn't already over minecraft, I would play the shit out of it in VR.
