Wow! FNAF VR is on sale for the first time ever! Will probably have to jump on that. Now, if only the same would happen for Beat Saber.

My son loves the FNAF games and this would be an instant buy except he is 8 and I won't let him use VR until he's 12.

That’s a really good price for Diablo 3 if someone doesn’t have it...

thanks. I was just about to ask if this was a good price.

diablo 3 was bad compared to diablo 2 and other modern top down action rpgs if you ask me. but for 15 bucks its a decent romp.

 

the platinum is tedious, the end game is repetitive, the combat is just button spam till everything on the screen is dead. Very little strategy is required for most builds.

 

Also I played online with a stranger one time and suddenly my legend level went from 1 to like 200 or something, so the community is filled with cheaters.

Does this version of Diablo include all DLC or just some?

It’s one of my favorite games of all time, and there’s still a fairly active community. With that said, I am glad that D4 is apparently going back to a darker tone...if it ever comes out lol

Um. Why wouldn't it come out? It was just announced a few months ago.

Just finally finished TLOU last night. Man what a fucking ride it was. So glad I gave it another shot. Def one of my favorite games this decade. Can’t wait to dive into part 2 tonight.

Oh god. Just save yourself the pain now and pretend like the sequel doesn't exist.

It really doesn’t matter how much it sells, it doesn’t mean it’s a good game. That’s like picking a random rap artist that has 10 million views on YouTube in a few days, does that automatically make them a good artist? You don’t have to follow sheep all of your life lol.

Or maybe people bought it because of how much they loved the first game. I know hard to believe right? Plus they're banning returns in certain countries.

I played the first one when it came out, I thought it was ok, nothing special, that is why I will sit the sequel out until it’s cheap enough. I’m in no rush to play it after the first game.

I attribute that more to the love of the first game (and Sony going scorched earth on spoilers) than the quality of the second.

I already know the plot and even then I get what they did and why they did it. I wanna experience it myself lol

Plus my buddy works for Sony so I got the game for $25.

Without getting spoilers or anything, what is the general problem with TLOU2 that people don't like?

 

It's just more of the same gameplay (which isn't everyone's cup of tea) and that makes it bad?

It's just more of the same gameplay (which is fine and tolerable) but the story is boring or bad?

They made the gameplay worse?

It's just people mad at some message or choice of characters or something but the story and gameplay was fine otherwise?

 

I imagine it's the second choice?

I played the first TLOU and I didn't like much of the need for stealth.  Yes, I understand that's the point of the game.

It just wasn't fun for me but the story/character bonding was the good part.

I'd imagine that I'd pick it up in the future once it's cheap just to see what's up.

I'm about 3/4th through TLOU2 and I can see why there is a need of being upset at a certain plot point. I am not angry as it's one hell of a sequel.

They hate the lesbians.

Sad but that's where 90% of the review bombing is coming from.

Also people read spoilers and how to feel about those spoilers on the internet and now they can't form their own opinions or get past what they read.

It's a cool game though.

Naughty Dog games bore me to death, their development culture is toxic, and the story spoilers I read are legit stupid, but I still wanted to play a big budget mainstream game starring lesbian main characters. Kind of a big deal. So I put a hold on LoU2 at my local library & it's available for me to pick up on Monday.

If you want to see what all the fuss is about, there are other options besides actually buying the game.

I finished it the other day and really enjoyed it. Turns out that people may like something even if others don't. What a novel concept.

 

As for the LGBT+ stuff - I'm a parent and strong advocate for the rights. I'm not offended nor did "I" think ND stepped over a line. The characters were strong and courageous. I'd be proud if my daughter ever displayed half of the courage and/or strength that ND wrote in to these characters. (given the storyline and setting of the game)

TLoU 2 is really good so far. I'm 18 hrs in. I like that everything has been a surprise. The trailers intentionally misdirected people Kojima style. I completely avoided spoilers and really enjoy the direction they took with the story. Game play is a refined version of the first game. Good stuff!

Glad to see some LoU2 positivity here. Bought it on release and played it over 3 days in three 8 hour chunks. As a whole, I enjoyed it a lot. I really feel like the exact same game would have been received much better had the sequence in which things were presented been done differently. My major gripe was how much the first 12 hours or so had me locked in, but then over the next 8 or so hours I just wanted to rush to get back to that. I think other than the flashbacks to months and years earlier, it would have been much more enjoyable to just play the present day material in chronological order. One might argue that would remove tension from the first half of the game, but that is what I felt made the second half a lot less enjoyable. There was pretty much zero tension in the second half because you know what you are building up to.

First 3 hours was great for me. The last 3 hours (regardless how you feel about the direction they went) was solid for me. That middle 18 hours was good, solid, fun gameplay, but the story was told in a way that seemed unnecessary. Can I get a director’s cut? Maybe I’ll make a bunch of manual saves and play them in the order I’d have liked the second time around.

Great, now we can have endless discussions about how "bad" TLOU2 is instead of the first one.  :P

Nice deflecting. Couldn't possibly be the controversial story that the people behind it even acknowledge would be divisive.
