@xmassteps played it for a short while at EGX under its old name and liked what I saw. It's quite grim and grimy

@Haysey I've heard that some characters can be romanced, but I don't know the details due to avoiding spoilers. I have it on the Vita, but want to get it on PC.

Really tempted to pick up the PC version of this. However, it's worth noting that there are currently issues using higher than 60Hz displays. Looks like it's quite easy to work around, though.

Middle-earth: Shadow of War review

Rusty_M

7 months ago

I like Muse and effects. Sure, I don't want all my music like that, but it's overblown, loud fun

This sounds like one to wait for a good price on, turn up the difficulty and spend a good weekend playing with the nemeses. I hope im able to kill all I one area and control all in another. Never quite managed either feat in the first game.

@_TheDarkSide_ would you say you've gone dark.

I find on PC with strangers that voice channels are mostly quiet. I have a mic for when they're not, but always set to Push To Talk, after once or twice mixing up game conversations with conversations with my wife.

I think I told a fellow DayZ player from EG that I loved them once!

Eurogamer readers' top 50 games of 2016

Rusty_M

1 year ago

It's a really strong list. I own or want almost the entire list. It goes to show that while 2016 was a horribly chaotic year in the real world, the gaming world is full of refinement, reinvention and either a bit of innovation. Although it may not have been a huge commercial success, the Return of VR has been great! Hell, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes even makes a great party game.

@Frosty840 they're still around. Not always hugely affordable, though. Freespace 2 still shines with mods. There are still good real world flight sims around, and joystick can still be bought, though quality costs.

With the reviews this is getting, I can imagine it picking up longer term sales. I hope it does, because it's really something! The longer-standing franchises I'd expect to get more of the pre-orders, but surely this'll grow based on word of mouth and reviews.

Is being bad at games really so terrible?

Rusty_M

1 year ago

I think a good writer and someone who can understand where a game succeeds and fails at what it is trying to do is more important than somebody who excels at a game. If you argue that you can't review a game until it's completed, I suppose those who're better can get a review out quicker (embargoes notwithstanding).

It might matter to an extent with some competitive games, but I think having a variety of opinions available can be useful. I'm not great at fighting games, but I love them. Due to my lack of ability, I find street fighter less enjoyable than the likes of Tekken and Mortal Kombat, probably because technical proficiency is more required for enjoyment. The latter two are easier to enjoy without being good, but still reward expertise. Tekken especially.

Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer is stunningly beautiful, stunningly short

Rusty_M

2 years ago

@Jedidja It's not even safe to assume there'll be a PC version. Whilst Grand Theft Auto has always found its way to PC apart from Chinatown Wars and the DS (Or was it GBA) version, none of the Red Dead games have yet been on PC.

This is the one game that might tempt me to go PS4Pro or Scorpio. I'll try to hold off unless one of my consoles dies.

Hitman season finale heads to Hokkaido, Japan

Rusty_M

2 years ago

@Ash735 I remember around the time of Half-Life episodes, and a few games were being released as a set of episodes. It clearly suits some better than it does others. Maybe some are understandably salty about Half-Life Episode 3 never appearing, leaving us with a cliffhanger. That and turning individual levels into, effectively, DLC are understandable causes for concern.

It turns out that episodic content has suited this game brilliantly. They may have been struggling with the budgetary requirements to release the whole game up front, and this has allowed them to create a Hitman with some of the best levels I've ever seen. Each one seems as intricate and full of options as the best that Blood Money had to offer. They've also nailed the balance in disguise effectiveness between the overpowered Blood Money disguises and the impossible to use Absolution ones.

At this rate, I'm totally getting season 2.

I've been getting into this this week. It's certainly one of the better games in the series. Way better than Absolution, which had its moments, but didn't fully live up to the name.

@PixelJumper I can see why it got that rating. I've not gone back to it yet, but I did enjoy what I played. Maybe it's hard to judge staying power in a review.

At the moment, I just prefer Elite. I'm certainly not burning out on space sims. I still have Freespace 2 mods to play.
