Divinity: Original Sin 2 review

meepmeep

7 months ago

So, the awesomeness of the ghost thing comes from suddenly realising that the world you've been walking around for hours and hours has an entire separate reality and layer to explore, which you didn't even appreciate had a secondary nature around you all this time.

Sounds like the impact of that moment would be somewhat lessened if, for example, I were to somehow know about it from the beginning of the game. Like if someone told you about it RIGHT AT THE START OF A REVIEW.

Now it's backwards compatible, here are Oblivion's best moments

meepmeep

1 year ago

This is the quintessential "Oblivion moment", and it has been copied many times since.
The 'start in a dungeon before stumbling into the light of the open world above' RPG trope definitely precedes Oblivion.

Baldur's Gate 2 springs to mind, for starters, but I'm sure you could go back to MUDs and IF for far earlier examples.

Gone Home console review

Gone Home's creators would, I suspect, do very well in the horror genre, but don't worry - these flashes of the supernatural are more metaphor than not.

Just Cause 3 review

If they can get Just Cause 3 fixed, we're in for a treat

meepmeep

2 years ago

I've been playing the PS4 version since Saturday morning, and I had no idea there were performance issues until I read about it today.

I think there is a current over-eagerness in gaming media to play up performance problems in AAA titles - sure, there's a few glitches and slow-downs in JC3, but it's fundamentally playable and there's no way this is on a par with recent Bethesda and Assassins Creed fiascos.

Nvidia's next laptop graphics chip is a full, desktop-class GTX 980

I'm finding the terminology of the chips in this article quite confusing. The video suggests the 980M is being reviewed, then the caption for the video says that the laptop 980 is being compared to the 980M, then the table lists the 980M against the 980 but doesn't say if that's the laptop or desktop.

Bethesda literally cannot produce any more Pip-Boys

meepmeep

3 years ago

For those wondering why they can't go elsewhere, it's likely that the factory in question also designed and created the master moulds (given that Bethesda is not a habitual creator of injection-moulded plastic tat), and may not be required to hand these over to Bethesda. So going elsewhere may require redesigning from scratch, and may not result in exactly the same product.

The biggest of these thus far, a mechanic that seems to have been at least partially borrowed from Bloodborne, has players capable of deploying different stances for different types of weapon.
You could switch between stances when dual-wielding in DS2.

Unarmed police were first responders to the scene, despite multiple clear reports of armed assailants.

Unarmed police are always first responders to such situations in the UK - even if the policy were otherwise, the basic fact is they are in place to get there faster than our small numbers of armed response teams.

@kangarootoo

No, here in the UK, as in other European countries, a normal police patrol car would be dispatched first to assess the situation. An armed response team is only dispatched once the situation has been verified.

This is why this only happens in the US - only they will send out a SWAT team without verification of a threat.

Those who think that glitches and exploits shouldn't be allowed might want to go back in time and tell the people who started speedrunning back with Quake Gone Quick etc.

If you can do it in the game without external tools, it counts, and finding and exploiting glitches is part of the interest and fun.

Many games have glitchless categories as well if you'd prefer to watch that.

People need to consider what sudden public wealth does to you if you live in a poor, corrupt, authoritarian state like Vietnam. The chances are he's getting a lot of attention at home, and the vast majority of it will not be from well-wishers.

It is also still a communist country where personal wealth is something of a dubious area.

He may wish to cut his gains before he, or members of his family, are put at risk. Businessmen in Vietnam routinely have a retinue of armed soldiers in order to avoid being abducted.
