Since some of y'all are talking fakey-bro - eh, I dunno; already falling behind on games here w/ me still currently playing Fallout 4; and also Dreamfall Chapters, GTA5, The Witcher 3, The Division, and Wasteland 2 all are chilling in the backlog.

 

Maybe Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be something I'd be interested in fakey'ing - maybe not. I dunno.

Mass Effect talk, eh?

 

I really dug all of the ME games, even despite ME3's poor handling of the ending to the base-game.

 

ME1 was a great start - but combat was still based too much on stats + dice-rolls for a game that controls exactly like a shooter. Though, ME1 probably had the best final boss fight in the franchise. ME2 and ME3's base-game - eh, their final boss fights weren't anything special. This was the start of a great franchise, even with some of its warts and all.

 

ME2 is the standard-barer for shooter/RPG's or RPG/shooters (depends on how you look at the game on which side it leans on more favorably), as it got those hybrid games away (for the most part) from using dice-rolls + depending too much on stats when you're literally controlling shooting like you would in a shooter/RPG or RPG/shooter. In that type of game, nothing's more annoying than shooting a normal enemy in the head and getting very little damage to none b/c of a dice-roll or stats; it makes no sense. While Alpha Protocol should've learned from this, it didn't (still used dice-rolls + stat-checking too much), future hybrid games of that RPG/shooter sort like Deus Ex: Human Rev + Fallout 4 obviously learned that games that control like shooters shouldn't depend too much on the stats for the combat stuff. ME2 might've cut back too much for most on the RPG elements of Inventory, upgrading weapons, skill learning - but still, since ME always controlled like a shooter, it made sense. With so many, more or less, short-stories in this game + side-quests (mostly about getting your team together for the final mission) - you really cared a lot about your crew, more so than anything...as it led into the final mission - which is one of the best final missions, IMHO, ever in a game - even though the final boss fight sucked. 

 

ME3 found that in-between of ME1 + ME2, where they tossed back in some of the RPG Inventory (still not too much) + upgrading elements (a lot more here than ME2) & kept the combat of ME2. Combat in ME3 was great and everything was going great, for the most part...until the very end. So many rumors flew around where Casey Hudson shut most of the ME3 BioWare staff writers out and Patrick Weekes spoke out and his post wound up removed about this - even though this all was squashed as false in a PR move, I still don't buy that - and especially since Casey ain't with them anymore (he's now w/ Microsoft). To me, all of this totally makes sense, as it explains why everything takes such a strange + abrupt turn by the end of ME3; and also heavily pointed to they leaving stuff so far open that it sets-up more DLC (which they did) and another ME game (Andromeda). 

 

For me, the ME Franchise was great - even despite the last 10-20 minutes of ME3 falling apart. Great journey, but it still needs a better + more complete finish.

This.

 

I figured it was just a way to get people to remember that the Two Worlds franchise exists and to build a little hype in advance of the third game.

 

BTW, Motoki, the existing TW2 expansion already hit pirate themes pretty hard and actually did it in a pretty competent way. I don't know what happened with Raven's Cry. I genuinely thought both of the games in the Two Worlds series were pretty decent, once you got used to their Euro-quirks.

 

I too hope they pull this off; we'll see.

I think 2W1 was decent (the gameplay, combat, and crafting system); but 2W2 was much improved (less buggy; less issues; game performed well on my system; story + dialogue was much better than the original if that's even saying much; graphically looked quite good for its time). I do need to play PotFF expansion though.

 

I'll probably get 2W2 DLC's at some point - but, I'd probably be way more interested in 2W3.

 

What's interesting is there's a graphical engine + system overhaul here w/ Call of the Tenebrae DLC, so I do wonder if also 2W2 might be getting some Remastered Ultimate Edition on the consoles at some point.

Maybe all this Dark Souls 3 talk might get me to finally go back to Dark Souls 1 PTD and finish it up...some day.

What's gilby it mean, again?

You meant to buy something (that's likely on sale); forgot to buy it (for some reason); and completely missed out on deal.

My Darkspore is the same.  They pulled the plug on the servers a month or two back and the game no longer functions as far as I know.  I might actually have it installed but haven't tried launching it.

 

Edit: Just gives you this --

EA should release an official offline mode.

How much is fallout 4 on amazon?

What video card should I buy?

What game is newegg giving away today?

Anything to derail "This post is hidden because you have chosen to ignore posts by lostnumberView it anyway?"

Why you no buy Fallout 1+2 instead?

Might be worth getting a 64 MB GeForce 2 MX 400 card.

NewEgg is "giving away" Fallout 4 for $30 w/ a coupon code (check e-mail for code).

If you need a derailing, check out this.

Oh, crap.

Now that you bring up LoTF from BundleStars - I fell asleep behind the PC (nothing new); woke up; and pulled a Gilby last night on LoTF (forgot to buy it)!

I will have to wait for a killer deal on LoTF again. Oh well.

Only in Japan.  I really can't imagine that the PC version isn't as big of a screw up as the past two and that From won't say it's too complicated for them to do anything about and then some dude the next day will come out with some tiny fix the next day that makes it all better and improves the graphics ten fold.  Again.

Always look forward to seeing Durante fix + mod PC games w/ the most basic of ports.

DSFix, DPFix, and GeDoSaTo are great handy tools.

IndieGala and Bundle Stars have Lords of the Fallen Deluxe for $3.99:

https://www.bundlest...-digital-deluxe

 

Historic low price.  Pretty much guaranteed to be in the next Humble Monthly.

Sweet.

 

I would buy from IG - but I own already One Finger Death Punch; and LoTF is sold-out.

Meh @ that.

 

EDIT:

Might have to buy at BundleStars, if need be.
