Chaos Reborn. Found it on Steam randomly and wonder why the hell haven't I been playing this for years?

WoW and wondering if they're just going to keep bumping up the artifacts so I have endless dailies

MWO dropped their skill tree change Tuesday so I'm still learning the new nuances of all that.

I play a game of The Show 17 at least once a day.

I'm on the 4th castle in Persona 5.

I'm still working my way thru DKC 3DS.

So, yeah...

Got stuck on a mission in Space Tyrant and realized I was kinda burned out on it, so I went back to Guild of Dungeoneering.

DLing the demo now.

Finished Batman Arkham Knight last week, the ending was pretty meh but Batman slowly losing his marbles to the Joker during the game was amusing.

After that I started playing Expeditions: Conquistador, I've gotten bored with it though, don't know if I'll get around to finishing it.

Before that it was Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen, the pawn idea is interesting but I lost interest in it as well shortly after the big griffin battle.

Still playing Champions Online mostly.  Grabbed the Utopia DLC for Stellaris and will start getting into that now that they're reached the mostly stable phase of their life cycle.  Also Battletech backer beta starts in June.  So hard I could melee a Jenner to death.

Bloodstorm.  My latest alt.  Happier with the costume than the powerset so far.  Running Sparkstorm as a toggle, Whirlwind, and Quicksand.   Works, but I dunno, it's not as...fluid-y looking as I'd hoped.

Still working on Dragon Age: Inquisition.  Romanced Sera, who is basically Peebee but an Elf (or rather, Peebee is Space Sera).  I've got to be getting near the end of the main quest but I still have a bit of side stuff to clean up.  I'm at about 90 hours, give or take, which is about where ME:A started to wrap up, too.

Game(s) that changed my life: The NES/SNES-era output of both Square(Soft) and Enix.  Final Fantasy I, IV, VI, Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore, Chrono Trigger (best video game ever made), Dragon Warrior/Quest I-IV, ActRaiser, Ogre Battle, and Illusion of Gaia.  I don't go in much for JRPGs anymore but my taste in games now as well as my taste in other media was heavily influenced by them.

I tried going after Sera but I was playing a male character so that didn't go anywhere. So then I went with Josephine. I like redheads so Leliana would've been a nice option, as long as you didn't piss her off lol.

Speaking of Leliana, have you gotten to the part where you end up in the future yet? I thought her part in that was pretty bad ass.

Well, I finished the hell out of Prey this past week. 3 back to back to back play-throughs and 100% achievements and I pretty much found everything there was to find except a few minor details (such as the key card to get between the Shuttle Bay and Fuel Storage / GUTS). VERY impressive game. Excellent all around from story telling to voice acting to gameplay to plot. I loved it. Especially some of the nifty little details such as solutions for finding some of the safe codes. 

For example, there's a safe in a room very early on in the game (in the Debriefing Room in the Simulation Area at the start of the game). As far as I know, you won't find a note or email or anything like that with the code for that safe. It had been written on the white board in the room, but had been erased. 

The solution to getting that particular safe code is pretty nifty. It's a little thing, but so well thought out that I got a big kick out of it. :)

Anyway, I've been doing SRS BSNS gaming for a bit, so I've switched things up and gone for all out silly. After a long time away, I'm replaying Saints Row IV. I never got around to doing the Enter the Dominatrix DLC before, so I started a new play-through and will hit that this time around. Damn this game is so much brilliant fun! :D

Boo_Guy: Finished Batman Arkham Knight last week, the ending was pretty meh but Batman slowly losing his marbles to the Joker during the game was amusing.


It's a shame that game had so much trouble at launch, because it was such an excellent Arkham game. I kind of rank it evenly with all of the other Arkham games, except Origins. Arkham Origins was terrible, IMHO, because they tweaked something about the combat which prevented me from being able to maintain combos. I don't know what it was, but I found myself missing counters or having Batman trying to strike just about every enemy except the one I was aiming for (especially turning to strike a shield or padded guy with a normal strike, instantly breaking the combo). It was incredibly frustrating, because the combat was something the previous games had done to perfection. 

Arkham Knight's combat was back to the level or Asylum's and City's, with me being able to pull off near infinite combos and feeling like the goddamn Batman again! :D

But I digress... I rank all three of the "real" Arkham games pretty evenly, because they all had things that made them great in their own ways: Asylum was really tight and focused, City had (I felt) a better story and character moments and I enjoyed playing as Catwoman, and Knight had nifty character switching, a wide variety of activities, decent story, and I actually enjoyed the Batmobile (though it was over-used and at times tedious). 

Anyway, good game overall. I enjoyed Knight and thought it was a fitting continuation and end to the Arkham series. :)

Oh and the latest Kickstarter update for Battletech had a pretty good multiplayer battle/demo video.  Better than the trailer they released, imo.

Hour long, but I watched the whole thing.  Twice now, actually.  So excited.  All the tweaks and changes they made from table top seem like excellent choices for making the game more engaging and making use of the computer's ability to handle all the math-y bits and extra tracking in the background.

I'm almost through Persona5.  I'm really hoping you get to play a second time through with bonuses after completing it once like you could with P4.  Because I'm not maxed on everything and it's making me SAD!

back into Rimworld, getting much better at it. Though that's likely due to it being heavily modded. But man, that "getting started" (basically you can adjust and super set up your game), ww1 mod (love me some nebelwafers) and star wars mod (force lightning is amazing at full strength, one shotting grizzly bears!) really make the game awesome. Currently built myself a mountain fortress that has five solar panels and 3 thermal generators. I think I have over 25,000 watts of power in storage and I still have a positive power output at night. My perimeter is surrounded by turrets.

and those nebelwafers... I had a raid last night, like super raid, over 50 dudes dropped in to take me out. One barrage hit them in a choke point and 6 managed to survive long enough to flee.

I have 3 nebelwafers on standby at all times because it takes 3 of them several barrages to take out one of the supped up mechinoids.

okay, I need to stop talking about rimworld...

I think my colony's main source of income is selling "smokeleaf joints". hilarious, but I'm rich

Arkham Knight > Flaming Garbage Island Country in Middle of Baltic Sea > Arrange The Other Games Any Way You See Fit.

Horrible and mangled flaws aside, if Batman is going to be a dirt-easy power fantasy game where wow, I am truly the Dark Knight™, then I might as well play the one that does the best job of that.

I've been playing Civ V (not, not VI) and taking a break from Icewind Dale and World of Warships.  I saw that Guild of Dungeonering was on sale, and I am contemplating dropping 6$ on it.  Hows does the Fark Games Collective feel about it?

Zaxxon was a life-changer for me.  Up to the point I got that cartridge for my C-64, I had to program all of the games I played myself in basic to play them.  That was the first game I had ever bought* and it opened up a whole new world of gaming to me.

*parents bought, but you know  what I mean.

Lots of Stellaris. Thought I was gonna be able to grind out a Federation victory even after having the Unbidden eat up a good chunk of my core worlds, but ended up in seperate wars with two Awakened Empires simultaneously. So it goes.

Plenty of BL2 as well.

The new Windows 10 update didn't take and I was having some issues with rolling back, gonna give everything a good looking at tonight and may do a reinstall after backing up a few things I got lazy on. Assuming all is well I'm strongly considering grabbing Divinty OS2 off early access

I've been all about Oxygen Not Included and PUBG lately.  ONI is great and getting better.  Only just started poking at the Agricultural update, but the Thermal update improved playability immensely and I'm looking forward to some of the options introduced in the Ag.  Love that game.

PUBG (PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds) is basically DAYZ without zombies.  It's awesome.  100 people parachute onto a deserted Russian island full of weapons.  The play area shrinks continuously so you're forced into contact.  It's effectively HUDless as well, so you have to rely on luck and actual observance to survive.  It's way fun and matches last at most 35 minutes, which is nice.

This.  The technical issues were a big problem but the worst was the way they handled it.  They gave almost no communication, missed most of the deadlines that they even bothered to communicate on and then when it was 'fixed' all they had to say to the people who stuck with it and gave them bug reports was ''thanks".  I was really hoping to get some DLC at least.

The game was fun though.

Been playing the heck out of Nier: Automata and having a blast doing it. I already beat it but now I am going for some of the other endings and tying up loose ends all over the place. I am out of state for work so I am really jonesing for Breath of the Wild.

Also playing a bit of RE7 (working on unlocks and speed runs) and Witcher 3 (200 hours in and still so much to do).

My wife got me Transport Fever for my birthday.  Man, I really, really WANT to like that game, it's been way too long since there was a proper modern transportation manager out there (and yes, I know about OpenTTD), and it's a very attractive game, but... holy crap, the interface and getting started are just brutally unforgiving.  In order to have any sort of chance at starting the game you've got to have a primary resource, secondary manufacturing, and final market destination really close to each other, and pray they're in forgiving terrain, because the track laying tool is absolutely god-awful.  And no take-backies if you make a mistake; that's more money out of your insanely limited starting amount.  And even if you DO find that holy grail, your engine is too small to properly pull a decent train, meaning within a decade at least one of the industries will be screaming about being underserved, at at risk of being downgraded.  And if you want to add more cars to your train?  Expect to lose at least a year while the thing gets back to the depot for upgrading.

And if you want to get into passenger service instead?  Good luck with that.  The initial towns are so tiny there's practically no demand, and your initial vehicles (horse-drawn wagons, woo!) are too slow to do inter-city work.  I haven't tried a passenger service yet, maybe THAT's the secret, but usually it takes me 3 maps just to find a decent starting point without messing up the rails because there's some stupid invisible hill in the way.

So instead I've mostly been playing Elite: Dangerous and doing all the stuff I didn't do last year when I tried it out the first time, and having a lot more fun doing it.  And of course the ubiquitous iRacing; 410 WoO Sprints at Volusia, and the Blancpain GT3 Sprint series at full Nurnberg 24h course.

I have some concerns that melee and knockdowns might be a bit too powerful. Getting a called shot from 500m away on a prone mech seems a bit off. In that video, the crippled Panther was keeping the Orion on the ground with melee attacks.

And am I the only one that was appalled at some of the tactics used by both players in the video? How do you get your fire support mech so far away from the battle that it can't even contribute with LRMs?

I loved driving the Batmobile, but I hated the tank battles and avoided them every chance I could. Other than that I agree, very solid entry to the series.

I will be playing some PUBG as well. Yeah, it is the essence of what made PvP in DAYZ the absolute best I've ever played distilled into a tighter package. Sometimes I wish the games were longer and the island slightly bigger, but it's great. Plays well for being early access and completely worth the money in its current form.

I picked up the Mass transit DLC for cities skylines and I love it. The only new mode of transit that I've been using so far is the ferries and they add some nice visuals to a city as well as being a very viable transportation method. What really makes the DLC great though is the route overlay tool and the ability to alter intersection behaviour. I was planning to start a new city but when I read through the tutorials and saw those tools I was able to fix some long standing traffic problems in a couple of existing cities.
 
2017-05-19 09:26:37 AM  
Elite Dangerous has taken over my life.   Started a trip to Beagle point last week and am almost there.   I've also spent quite a bit of time playing with the Voice attack plugin for it.  There is something exceptionally satisfying about telling my computer "Punch it Chewie" and having it spool up the engines and engage the frame shift drive.   :)   Gonna find a clip of Artoo's 'wheeeeeee' to add as a response to the hyperspace launch as well.

A couple of notable early experiences for me.
1. 'Star Trek' on a Zilog Sytem 8000 back in 1980 or so.  My father was an electronics rep and we had this behemoth in the basement.   It was rudimentary but OMG, what a life changing experience.

2.  Wizardy on my Apple ][.   What????  Graphics????  Look at me, I'm walking through a dungeon.  I'm still a sucker for dungeon crawlers some 35 years later.

Dragon Warrior got me hooked into RPGs, Zelda obviously was mind blowing for the day, Team Fortress 2 was great for personal reasons as far as making friends.

Lots of people hate the tanks battles to the point where I wonder why they were included. I enjoyed them personally but the game would have been just fine without them and the limited number of tank based puzzles could have been cut without much loss too.

Panther got lucky as shiat.  First off base melee chance seems to be 65%.  Secondly, knockdown is actually in some ways harder in this than tabletop.  Missiles and melee instead of having a chance every time have (possibly higher, but still avoidable) chance only after 1 attack has already made the opponent unsteady.
That *is* kind of a problem with initiative systems in general, though. (Divinity: Original Sin, I'm looking at you.  Stack initiative and chain CC or die.)  But largely it was due to dude letting himself get outnumbered with his Griffon too far out of position to effectively break it up.

The Catapult...that was a mistake on his part as far as he was concerned, but I think it actually ended up being a good move.  Other guy never once got visual on it to even know where it was.  It gave up a round or two of shots because of that, but if the battle had gone differently and the other guy had some medium-range rushers to devote to it, being spotted could have ended it's chances of remaining effective.

Overall, the guy who won played...mediocre, and the other guy played a bit better but way too defensively for what he was facing.  He needed to ignore the crippled Centurion, move away from the Panther, burn down the Hunch and it's god-killer gun and try to push across the river and engage/destroy the catapult.

Not much of anything this week. A little BotW early on. The College I work for picked up some Oculus Rifts for their game design courses, so we've been fooling around with it and I installed Project CARS to check out how the game works with it. Guess I'm gonna be saving up 800 bucks now, because god damn. I try not to do drugs but that is some premium shiat right there.

In terms of life-changing games, I wouldn't go that far but the best answer would typically be ones that introduced me to a genre/sub genre, of which there are many. I might put up League as the most engrossing game since I have played the shiat out of it over the last 4-5 years, and it is surprisingly social when you've got voice chat going with your friends.  I'd probably hate it if I played Ranked though, so I don't.
 
2017-05-19 09:38:05 AM  
I mean, think back to Mechforce on the Amiga.  Walk onto an ice hex...fail pilot check, fall down.  Roll to stand, fail, fall down.  Roll to stand, succeed, stand up, get kicked, fall down.  Roll, stand, take a step, roll, fall...etc etc  It was like freakin' Keystone Kops in mecha anytime you saw ice or snow.
 
2017-05-19 09:40:28 AM  
Now that I'm done my Master's and have free time again I bought a PS4 and have already almost platinumed Shadows of Mordor. Probably haven't had this much fun on a game since Arkham City.

In regards of life-changing games, it would be Resident Evil 2 because 7 year old me should not have been playing it; it was literally life-changing in the sense of "made me start using a nightlight again for a few weeks". In more serious terms, Shenmue helped me realize games could be great immersive story-driven experiences but still be good games. It was the perfect blend of RPG and fighting for me. Can't wait for 3 to come out this year.

If you have a Retron 5 or a GBA Player for the Gamecube, track down the Gameboy Color version of 1&2.  It cleans up a lot of the clunkiness of the interface.

Of course. If you have the Retron, you can also get the Super Famicom version and download a translation patch.

No Video Games this week.

D&D group took a boat south from Neverwinter to Candle Keep. The monk received a distress scroll from his former shifu and the party is investigating.

The monk and ranger chartered a boat, with a teamwork roll of 7...

They ended up on a skiff transporting screaming goats with no sleeping quarters.

Once they hit Candle Keep they decided to spend a day in the Library researching the Cult of Dragons. Another wonderful teamwork roll of 12. Needless to say they didn't find out shiat.

From there they headed to Beregost when the mage decided that he DIDN'T want to check out the Burning Wizard Inn when he saw the sign hanging over the door that depicted a greybeard wizard being burned at the stake.

Next gaming session they will make their way to Greenest where they will begin the Hoard of the Dragon Queen adventure.

I love cities, it's one of my favorite sims. However, usually I hit a point of critical mass where the traffic gets absolutely god awful and there is no way to fix the multiple choke points that constantly pile up.

This new expansion fixes that?

Jera is a huge help when it drops, but it's not a guarantee.  Nothing worse than swapping out a weak but usable item for an even weaker one like Cursed Eye, Bob's Brains, or Curse of the Tower.  Seriously, no more Bob's Brains, ever.  Please.

I guess I'll post thread related stuff too. I played d&d 2e with friends again as we continue my characters backstory. My character is such a biatch, the party is upset at how poorly she treats her recently rediscovered noble brother. She then successfully subdued an entire goblin village by nearly killing and bullying their leader.

The biggest game that made a difference in my life was kingdom hearts. I was gifted a 50$ Disney card the year it came out to use at Disney world, which you can't use there. So I went on their website and saw nothing but stupid clothes and toys. Kingdom hearts was the only game on there that wasn't something dumb like Mickeys skateboarding. I bought it and played it knowing absolutely nothing about it, and it was amazing.

The_Y2P_Problem: chozo13: The_Y2P_Problem: Got Thumper for the Switch, I'll get Disgaea 5 and Ultra Super Duper Street Fight II Turbo Champions Edition HD next week.  Been playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.  Having a lot of fun with it, probably worth buying again for the convenience for multiplayer with friends, but not enough improvements yet to really recommend it.

Dragon Warrior got me hooked into RPGs, Zelda obviously was mind blowing for the day, Team Fortress 2 was great for personal reasons as far as making friends.

Same here on that count, that was the first RPG I beat. I wish it would get a remastered version as I tried playing it again and the interface is just too cumbersome.

If you have a Retron 5 or a GBA Player for the Gamecube, track down the Gameboy Color version of 1&2.  It cleans up a lot of the clunkiness of the interface.

Of course. If you have the Retron, you can also get the Super Famicom version and download a translation patch.


I'll look into that, thanks for the tip!
