Borderlands 3 is tough to stomach after the Randy Pitchfork shitshow

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Saturday, 17 August 2019 19:30 (six months ago) link

metroid series is another ‘uncanny loneliness’ simulator

THE FUCKING EMPIRE OF SOUR CREAM (bizarro gazzara), Saturday, 17 August 2019 19:31 (six months ago) link

And Dark Souls.

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 17 August 2019 20:29 (six months ago) link

Far cry 2 is the only entry in that series that one should try to play the others yeah you can play the most recent or whichever theme seems fun I guess primal or whatever they’re all the same w different skins

Mordy, Saturday, 17 August 2019 22:30 (six months ago) link

So just curious, why that one? Because others say Far Cry 3 is the best, others say 4 a big step down, some say 5 is a fun return to form ... what's shifting between sequels to make one better than the other if they are all fundamentally the same?

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 17 August 2019 22:52 (six months ago) link

different people like different settings and characters and stories i think thats all there really is to it.

ciderpress, Saturday, 17 August 2019 23:40 (six months ago) link

But the gameplay is more or less the same, just the stories and graphics and stuff change from version to version? Like, for example, people seem to like Dark Souls 2 the least of the three (and Bloodborne), but as far as I can tell that's because they messed with the gameplay, right? So you're saying the gameplay of all the Far Cry games is more or less the same, but some people prefer one story or setting over the other? Just wondering, I've not played any of the Far Cry games.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 18 August 2019 02:06 (six months ago) link

far cry 2 is not like the other ones - much more immersive experience. the others are all more or less iterative tho, but that particular entry stands out.

Mordy, Sunday, 18 August 2019 04:11 (six months ago) link

I read someone else observe that Far Cry 1/2/3 are all pretty different from one another, but Far Cry 3/4/5 are all kind of the same idea. Eh, I'll file 3 (which overwhelmingly seems the One To Get) in the pile of potential games I don't need now but that know I can always pick up for $15 or less

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 18 August 2019 15:31 (six months ago) link

why isn't there a decent letterboxd clone for video games yet...

Nhex, Sunday, 18 August 2019 15:44 (six months ago) link

I played Shadow a bit and after two bosses was completely bored by it.

Coelacanth Green (Leee), Sunday, 18 August 2019 15:48 (six months ago) link

That's as far as I have gotten so far. I kind of assume it is the same thing over and over again, with different big creatures, but at least the game looks pretty good. And I think I paid $12 for it.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 18 August 2019 16:56 (six months ago) link

the pretty goodness per $ quotient is off the charts!

Karl Malone, Sunday, 18 August 2019 17:17 (six months ago) link

how do you feel about old country buffet

ciderpress, Sunday, 18 August 2019 18:05 (six months ago) link

I think the graphics are pretty cool, it almost looks exactly like real food.

Josh in Chicago, Sunday, 18 August 2019 18:46 (six months ago) link

Far Cry Primal is pretty different from the main series but seems forgotten now. It's the only one that interested me. I guess Horizon ZD and maybe Monster Hunter sort of made it obsolete? Anyone play that one? I've only watched vidyas.

keep going!!

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 19 August 2019 20:15 (six months ago) link

I bought a cheap copy of Horizon, people seem to love that one.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 19 August 2019 20:45 (six months ago) link

I certainly love HZD.

Coelacanth Green (Leee), Tuesday, 20 August 2019 20:09 (six months ago) link

two weeks pass...

Kojima (or some other human) is apparently going to show 80 minutes of gameplay for Death Stranding next week.

Aphex Twinge (Leee), Friday, 6 September 2019 21:35 (five months ago) link

80 minutes of pissing

I did the third boss! Right index finger was tired from holding R2 down.

Johnny Grottan from the Skeks Pistols (Leee), Monday, 9 September 2019 19:29 (five months ago) link

afaict that's pretty much the game.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 9 September 2019 20:02 (five months ago) link

whateverrrr you guys haven't even beat avion yet, gtfoh

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Tuesday, 10 September 2019 19:46 (five months ago) link

The bird? I beat the bird.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 11 September 2019 01:46 (five months ago) link

I think I'm to the water boss.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 11 September 2019 01:48 (five months ago) link

Anyone played Blasphemous yet? Looks like it might scratch that Hollow Knight itch until the sequel comes out

Captain ACAB (Neil S), Wednesday, 11 September 2019 13:43 (five months ago) link

I almost pulled the trigger for it on the Switch yesterday, but I have a pretty big backlog and (speak of the devil) I find Hollow Knight (for only $15!) just sets the bar so high. Like, I'm going to buy Blasphemous eventually, but it's a head-scratcher whenever I read reviews that call it "gorgeous" or whatever, because by the standard of Hollow Knight all the pixel stuff is just so (imo) underwhelming. But yeah, reviews are generally very positive.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 11 September 2019 13:53 (five months ago) link

I'm a sucker for Souls-like mystique (which Hollow Knight delivered as well) so that's a good selling point also.

Captain ACAB (Neil S), Wednesday, 11 September 2019 14:01 (five months ago) link

The artwork / design does look pretty awesome and very different from the usual 'vania-clone

Nhex, Wednesday, 11 September 2019 14:32 (five months ago) link



Johnny Grottan from the Skeks Pistols (Leee), Wednesday, 11 September 2019 20:35 (five months ago) link

also O and X were chosen to indicate yes and no for menus etc but then American devs flipped them for whatever reason

ciderpress, Wednesday, 11 September 2019 20:41 (five months ago) link

easy way to remember:

X marks the spot that you want to press to go forward, O means nOOOO!

Plague Tale is 40% off right now, very tempted to get it now.

Doctor Hu (Leee), Monday, 23 September 2019 19:15 (five months ago) link

In the meantime, I bought Divinity: Original Sin 2.

Doctor Hu (Leee), Monday, 23 September 2019 19:18 (five months ago) link

Is anyone here playing Control? Keep seeing a lot of comments about it and I'm wondering if I should investigate

mh, Monday, 23 September 2019 19:22 (five months ago) link

Mentioned here: whatchu playing now

A lot of frame drop issues for PS4 (both base and Pro) but the recent patch seems to have fixed the worst of it, from what I've read.

Doctor Hu (Leee), Monday, 23 September 2019 19:25 (five months ago) link

Yeah, I was looking forward to it, then heard about the performance issues on even the Pro, then heard the patch fixed them, but was going to wait for a Black Friday sale or something. (Also waiting on a bigger discount for A Plague Tale, as far as newer games I've heard good things about go.)

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 23 September 2019 20:57 (five months ago) link

excited for whatever this is

I've started A Plague Tale, and if you were wondering, yes, you can pet the dog.

Doctor Hu (Leee), Monday, 30 September 2019 18:30 (four months ago) link

People say Borderlands 3 is "more borderlands" but it's definitely worse than 2 in many respects.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 30 September 2019 19:35 (four months ago) link

In what way? I love B2 but have a game backlog and haven't picked up B3 (also because Randy Pitchford sucks)

EZ Snappin, Monday, 30 September 2019 19:38 (four months ago) link

Extremely clunky, laggy, etc. The writing is worse than ever. It's trying to be a Destiny clone and not doing a good job of it. Etc.

Still fun when you're blowing fools away but the rest of it is in poor shape.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 30 September 2019 21:35 (four months ago) link

That's a bummer.

EZ Snappin, Tuesday, 1 October 2019 01:29 (four months ago) link

The new character classes are pretty sweet.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Tuesday, 1 October 2019 01:52 (four months ago) link

as expected

To that end, there are two key innovations with the PlayStation 5’s new controller. First, we’re adopting haptic feedback to replace the “rumble” technology found in controllers since the 5th generation of consoles. With haptics, you truly feel a broader range of feedback, so crashing into a wall in a race car feels much different than making a tackle on the football field. You can even get a sense for a variety of textures when running through fields of grass or plodding through mud.

The second innovation is something we call adaptive triggers, which have been incorporated into the trigger buttons (L2/R2). Developers can program the resistance of the triggers so that you feel the tactile sensation of drawing a bow and arrow or accelerating an off-road vehicle through rocky terrain. In combination with the haptics, this can produce a powerful experience that better simulates various actions.

‘the graphics arms race is over since everything is a pc now, so check out the cool new controller you’ll be paying 400 bucks for next xmas😎’
