That Bloodborne rip-off starring Pinocchio looks really promising and really stupid.

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.

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.

The least amount of effort would be to get a military haircut like myself. I just get up and wet down what hair is there and I am off to work lol. Minimal effort except needing to see the barber religiously.


Definitely takes way more effort to manage some luscious locks than it does to maintain a short haircut. I’ve just been cutting my own hair since the pandemic. Gives me something to do while I hang out in the bathroom. Only tough spot is getting the backside. Does the Steam Deck’s screen have a reflective surface? Maybe I’ll pick one up if it can double as a hand mirror.

Here's a direct link for the deal:

It still shows as unavailable for me and a lot of other folks, but if the deal is available for you the link should work.

I haven't picked up a monthly bundle in years but that Lawnmower game has really got my attention.

Disco is fantastic and great. It's one of the best CRPG's of the Planescape: Torment (PST) type since...well, probably PST. The prose, writing, character development, and whatnot is fantastic here.

 

And there's not much combat here in Disco either, especially since most is really just decisions handled by stats/skills in dialogue trees and not handled w/ actual combat mechanics.

 

Planescape: Torment's combat was fine mind you, but the fact that it's there and that you can still run into it, when it ain't as deep or as spectacular as other CRPG's - yeah, PST's combat just ain't as great as combat in say the BG series. Disco was really smart w/ the way it handled combat in dialogue trees and as real stat/skill/item checks.

I actually just picked up Planescape and a few more narrative-driven RPGs in the summer sale. I feel like I'm starting to appreciate those kinds of games more. Plus, my life is going to utterly fall to pieces in a few weeks when we welcome our second child into the world so it will be good to have some slower-paced RPGs to escape to when I want to completely disassociate from reality.

Just pooping in to say that I finally played Disco Elysium recently and that it is one of the best games I've ever played. Definitely try to redeem it asap if anyone ever drops a key here.

I feel like maybe I've been duped, but out of everything MS has shown the game I'm most excited about is Scorn. A linear, single-player, atmospheric FPS with good production values that looks like an actual game and not something that's designed to waste 100 hours of my time? Feels too good to be true.

Just an FYI for anyone else who picked up a cheap pre-order: The Quarry is requiring the 2K Launcher for the Steam version. Luckily this can be bypassed by pasting this into launch options:

 

"X:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\The Quarry\TheQuarry.exe" %command%
X = Game directory drive letter

 

Just tested it out and it works perfectly.

Despite its issues Cyberpunk has grown on me. It took some effort to finally get absorbed into the game, and for most my playthrough I intended to just power through the main story stuff. But I have now reached the "point of no return" mission and I find myself going around and wrapping up all the sidequests. And unlike the cookie-cutter open world bloat in Ubisoft/Sony open world games, I'm actually enjoying the missions.

 

So yeah, I don't necessarily think it's a good thing if a game takes 10 hours of gameplay before I start to feel some genuine interest in what I'm doing, and a further 10-15 hours before I feel like I'm truly having fun, but hey, it got there eventually.

 

On a side note it's a really strange experience for me to play this game and suddenly hear a good buddy's voice screaming out of the car radio. His band has a song in the game on the Morro Rock station and it always makes me laugh when it comes on. Most of the music in the game is shit but (ironically) their song is pretty good! Here's the track:

I was really turned off by the little things in Cyberpunk … like walking up to npcs that would appear and disappear depending on how close you got to them. Just completely broke the experience for me. And that was after it was supposedly fixed for next gen. Just such a disappointing experience. But maybe I just need to get over it and give it another try.

The game still has a lot of stuff like that. In addition to the free-floating items (though to be fair the floating cigarette could have been being smoked by a cyberghost) there's lots of weird animation stuff like people leaning on railings that aren't actually there or missions being held up because a character decides to stand still for 30 seconds instead of going where they're supposed to go.

 

Speaking of people standing still, I've had two encounters so far that felt like they were supposed to be proper boss fights. During the first fight I was running away from the enemy because they seemed really strong but then they decided to just stop and stand still so I could shoot them in the head until they were dead. What's really neat is that the exact same thing happened in the second boss fight, except this time they snapped out of it when I got them to 50% health so I did have to put some effort into that one.

 

On a more subjective note, the Johnny Silverhand character sucks.

Well it took nearly two years and several fresh starts but I'm finally hooked on Cyberpunk. The game isn't bad! As for the technical state of the game, so far I've only come across some free-floating...

 

cars!

humans/cyberpunks!

and cigarettes!

So things aren't that bad. The game is nearly finished.
