Yeah, the atmosphere and lore of Bloodborne definitely keeps me coming back to it. Even the arcane mechanics, which I haven't dabbled with beyond pyromancy in DS were fun and interesting. And I've always had more of a thing for the medieval vibe that DS has vs far Eastern settings. I just keep trying to convince myself because I feel like I should like these similar, but very different games.

Most of what you say you enjoy, you should like Elden Ring quite a bit. Assuming you haven't played it.

Trying to clean up my wishlist...

That seems really similar to trying to take care of the ole backlog... I wish you luck!  (I honestly think half my wish list is games that are negative to mostly negative ratings that I'll never buy but caught my eye before they released.)

 

Alone in the Dark, the first one was such a joy.  Honestly, I think the first scary game I played.  I don't think it would be scary today due to the tech but I might try it again...  I never got through the whole thing.  I got stuck in the area where there's a maze you have to find a way though with a lantern.  At least that's what I thought. Whomever mention it being obtuse with some puzzles wasn't kidding.  I spent days trying to get past a set of armor in a hallway. You end up having to throw a statue at it.  (If I remember correctly.)

 

I picked up all the Alone in the Dark games...  Illuminati, which I've never played, is a shit heap that was designed (poorly at that) for co-op. I really think that all that needs to be said.

 

The new hunting game, Way of the Hunter, looks really awesome in youtube videos.  I never thought I would be interested in such things but I've put in lots of hours in theHunter CotW and found that I really do enjoy it. (I think some of it might just be walking through the forests and other environments.  Something I really can't do in real life anymore.)

See, normally if you flip a coin, you got a 50/50 chance of guessing right. But this coin is a genetic freak and it's not normal. So you got a 25% at best, at getting it right. And then you add a third side to the mix, your chances of winning drastic go down.

 

This and Brett going "tell it to my face BILL GOLDBERG" are my favorite promo's ever.

Such a crazy incident in sports... One of the few times were a appeal was granted and the teams had to finsh the game a few weeks later.

Of course, today people couldn't fathom an actual rivalry between the Yankees and the Royals but it existed and the two teams hated each other. (They even had a good fist fight in the postseason that resulted in no one getting thrown out of the game.)

George Brett is an a-hole. As a kid I was at a game really late on the parking lot when he came out to leave with another player. A kid approached him with a pen and a ball for him to sign. He took both from the kid and threw them as far as he could. Kid just sat down and cried, and Brett laughed at him.

POE2 Obsidian at a new historical low (near as I can tell) at Fanatical for their daily flash deal.

Is it all one key for the obsidian version?

I played an hour of the DioField Chronicles demo.

 

<snip>

I finally tried it yesterday (on PS5 though).

 

1. The controls also feels like it was designed for a PC in mind, but then people playing on PC say they wish it was designed with PC in mind. So maybe they tried to compromise and missed both targets.

  • The movement queue is a little limited. You only get like 3 waypoints per character.
  • Some of the QoL is odd. I keep leaving the shop purchase screen because if you hit back, it doesn't go back to the weapon categories; it goes back a page.
  • Unsure how it is on PC, but on PS5, prompts appear before you can actually input something. So at least a few times, I'll see a prompt <Yes> <No> or whatever, hit confirm, and nothing happens. Because you have to wait like half a second before the input registers.

2. The 2D art is fine, but the 3D is lacking in details. It's passable, but it leaves a lot to be desired.

3. At the beginning, it felt very much like a MOBA, where you just send a unit and it auto attacks. But it quickly got past that where you'd want to use skills, and you're issuing a lot of movements and commands.

4. I played on hard, and while most missions have been easy, I've been stuck on at level 11 side mission. I've failed 3x so far and I don't really know how to beat it. Unless I'm supposed to grind, because my characters die in a couple of hits when a strong unit shows up.

 

While I was initially unimpressed, I did enjoy it more than I expected to. Should it be $40 instead? I don't know, because I don't know how much is in the main game. But the demo itself was quite lengthy.

One key, covers all the dlc that appears on Steam.

Doom 64 is also free from Epic, but it's like a buck and a quarter on Steam and is worth all 124 pennies.

Awesome. Added that news to my post. Nice catch.

 

Doom 64 is also $1.24 over on GOG too.

 

A total steal on all of the stores, no matter where you grab it from (if you are "okay" w/ Epic and their shenanigans) or buy it from (such as Steam or GOG).

...now add TripWire Interactive (makers of Killing Floor games & Maneater).
And they also bought the IP's for both Lord of the Rings IP & The Hobbit; and any other Tolkien-related stuff.

True to their word, my steam order email just came in.

Anyone know of any legitimate steam wallet code discounts? I've already cashed in all my GameStop credit but I've got another $200 to go. Seems I can't even get Target's red card 5% off without a trip into the store. Not looking to risk my account with eneba or gameflip. Thanks!

Got a Chase CC? If so, you might have an offer for 20% off at Gamestop (up to $20) so that would take care of half of what you need.

My laptop coolers arrived yesterday and I'm looking forward to my new gaming laptop showing up soon. So...yay. 

 

EDIT:

Yeah, my SC15 died last year and my Acer 960m laptop has been feeling like of late it's on its last legs. Time to move on to another laptop.

Rumor is that Death Stranding will get announced for Game Pass PC tomorrow. I started the game a few days ago and it's actually pretty good. Didn't thought I would like it because the basic premise was about delivering packages. The first hour of the game was really weird as hell too.

Whole game goes way out of its way to be unnecessarily weird. It's still pretty good though. The gameplay does become interesting if you give it time. If the director's cut version goes up it'll give me no reason to consider the paid upgrade.

Death stranding... man.. I tried it. Hated it. Then took advice and stuck with it for a few hours. Weird as hell but blew me away. Story was very good at pulling me in after I committed.

Death Stranding confirmed for PC Game Pass on August 23rd. OG version, no Director's Cut. I don't expect an upgrade path either since it would be a separate listing and not just DLC added in-game.

Can’t wait to get my deck so I can play some of these Sony exclusives handheld. My getmydeck % has been jumping since Monday was 6% now 34.99%. I still have a good while and hopefully Spider-Man is like $20 by then lol

I'm having... something of a crisis, and I don't know where else to turn. I was having dinner at a restaurant with my father last night, and... well, we don't always see eye to eye on a lot of things—issues of science, politics, faith—, but something he said... I just don't know what to do about.

 

You see, I was asking him how his pizza flatbread thing was... and... and he said it could use some pineapple. I just... how do you even deal with something like that? Your own father?

If you think delivering packages is addicting just wait until you start building roads. I thought Death Stranding's story was absolute **** but goddamn it I could have spent the rest of my life building roads in that stupid game. And don't even get me started on crafting zipline chains.
