  1. OK, maybe that title is the exaggeration, but I didn't find the game to be that great overall. Now, I knew there was a twist so that probably makes my perspective of the game different than the people who love it and went in blind, but yeah... So, the majority of the game play is lame. It is also the only part of the game I had known nothing about. I actually thought it was an FPS until the very moment I started moving my character. The shooting is basically fine, but everything else isn't. The cover system is crap and has caused me to die more than once because I was wasn't directly facing the piece of cover I wanted to latch my back on to. I had many issues with the default keybindings, and I couldn't fix the biggest issues because multiple commands are forced to share the same binding. Even until the very end I was messing up because of those bindings. I played of the hardest difficultly I could, suicide mission, and at times it felt too easy and other times it felt like bullshit. There was one mission were i died a handful of times because I was told to shoot out some windows, but they just wouldn't break. I don't know what I did different when they finally broke but it was just some BS. But most fire fights were far too easy. Most things just died after clicking on them once. I almost want to blame the mouse for making it too easy, but really it was the devs for making a console shooter and then putting it on the PC with no changes. I bet everything about he game controls far better with a game pad, other than aiming. I generally prefer TPS, but I almost wish this was an FPS. But, for the sake of the story, maybe it is better that is isn't. So, when I when into the game I knew of the twist, but it wasn't exactly what I thought. I had this vague idea in my head that the twist was that you were the bad guy the whole time. While that is kinda true, it also really kinda isn't. But just knowing that changed a lot of the story. The story was kinda meh at the start and I really just wanted to get to the "good stuff". When the game started couldn't believe this standard military shooter had actual fans. It did pick up its pace, but nothing came out of left field or left me in shock. Because of what I thought the twist was, I had instantly assumed Konrad wasn't real, and that Walker was actually Konrad. I wasn't sure how that was going to workout but in the end I was kinda right and kinda wrong. Of course my knowledge of the twist was factor for thinking this, but when I realized that Walker was basically the only one actually talking to Konrad I knew Konrad wasn't real. At least the Konrad talking to Walker wasn't real. When I got the the mission I call, White Phosphorus, I was not shocked. I did not expect to be raining hell fire down on innocents, but I saw the final white blobs all huddled around not really doing anything I knew what was going to happen. I have two thoughts about this part. The first is that you can't avoid killing them so even if you know there really isn't much you can do. You just gotta to it to progress the game. I can't really feel all that bad about it. Second is that it did change how I played the game, but I am not really sure if I should be crediting the game/devs for this. From this point on, I really didn't care about being a good guy. If this was Mass Effect, I had basically picked all paragon options until this point. Partly because I had thought Walker was gonna be the bad guy all along so I wanted to go against that. But after finishing White Phosphorus I no longer bothered picking the good guy options. When Lugo, or whatever his name was, got lynched I instantly just started mowing people down. I just didn't see the reason not to. If White Phosphorus was never in the game, well, I think I just would have walked past the crowd. The only ending I liked is the one I got first, and it was the only one that felt right to me. The ending were you "kill" Konrad, and then kill the people who came to save you is what I consider the most fitting out of all the endings. I felt this was the real true ending. But maybe that is just due to how I played the game. The worst ending, IMO is the suicide ending. I literally can't understand why Walker, at that point, would kill himself instead of just lying to himself like he has been the whole game. If there was message this game was trying to get across I didn't get it. I often don't as I generally don't care about the message a movie, game, or music has. All that matters is if the story or song is good. For the most part, I still thought the story was good and I can see why people like it. I honestly think this story could make for a good movie, and I would see a Spec Ops The Line movie if it came out today even tho I already know the ending. But there is something that spoiled the story for me about an hour after I beat it. And that is the theory that Walker has been dead the whole time, and that he died in the helicopter crash at the beginning of the game. There are many things to support this and I can only see this theory as being true. I hate these kinds of stories, where none of it is real within the context of the story. I hated it with Shutter Island and there has been a trend of VRMMO novels that I can't stand due to none if it being real within the context of the story. The theory could be wrong. I really just want this to be a story about a man's PTSD, but I can't see it that way anymore. I also have questions that I don't know if I missed the answers or if they were plot holes. Why were walker and his men actually in Dubai? I don't get this, or maybe I am just over thinking it. Was the 33rd even real? Like, Did walker actually even fight anyone? Why would The 33rd want to kill Walker if Konrad was already dead? Was the CIA actually there? If Walker died in the helicopter crash, what parts before that were real? How did Walker actually end up in that chopper the first time? Were your allies even real? I actually had more and better shit to say, but I forgot it when I started trying to type some of this shit.
  2. I finally caved and got SFV: Arcade Edition after the Trial expired because well, it was on sale and several of my friends are actually actively playing it. I'm actually amazed by the sheer brazenness of the whole Fight Money system and am wondering if I'm misunderstanding and/or doing something wrong. So the most I've been able to collect as reward is from the mind-numbingly boring Story Mode, playing each individual character. Each fight gets you something like 2k or 3k of currency so I've been determined to grind my way through. I've also been trying to do Trials, Demonstrations, Extra Battles, whatever "extra" shit there is just to see if it earns me FM...most of it doesn't. This bring me to my big question: Is 50 FM in a Ranked Match seriously the only fucking way to earn FM beyond these single player modes? It can't be and I must be overlooking something, no? Neither Battle Lounge nor Casual Match matches seem to yield any reward on that front and I'm baffled that a Ranked Match would yield...FIFTY. The average stage costs seventy THOUSAND FM. That's 1,400 matches. I know I'm late to the party with shitting on this game's FM system but seriously, am I overlooking something here or is it just solely designed to be Microtransaction Simulator 2019 (or 2016 if you wish)? And yes, I get most of this shit I don't actually need but naturally the coolest stages and non-stupid looking outfits are locked even in the Arcade Edition which I had assumed to be mostly complete at this point.

  6. Played for about twenty minutes yesterday enough to see that it looks like a Final Fantasy XIV clone and they have some work to do with menus and screen ratio. Wasn't hugely impressed or compelled to come back to it any time soon.

  9. I recently started streaming on Twitch. This isn't an advertisement for my stream. It's a question about something that's driving me crazy. I use streamlabs (think that's the name), and I went through the process step by step (following a really useful twitch tutorial), but for some reason, I can't stream without first receiving an error (that has almost no information of use) and then I have to press "go live anyway" and then I can go live. I just can't seem to update anything because everything gives me an error. And I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. If anyone does streaming and has an extra moment, I don't know if it's possible to see it from the surface, but my account is sarbonn, and it's just really frustrating. It's not like I'm trying to be Ninja. It's a stupid little stream where I learn a new skill and kind of go through the process of doing it on the stream. Mainly doing this to study a new area of communication that my discipline tends to avoid until it's already outdated.
  10. With being pretty busy all year, I’ve not exactly flown through games recently. Major releases I’ve finished this year would be God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2. Its the summer now, so I thought I’d use this time to catch up on a few. I tried Horizon Zero Dawn and...no. We have the Assassins Creed releases and again, no. Would this be the right time to maybe look at ‘indie’ titles and expand my enjoyment (though that brings its own headache on deciding which one is the right one). I'm not sure of my point, although this slump and meant I’ve picked up Rocket League again and already hitting my ceiling after a couple of days.
  11. I'm 22 hours in and don't think I have enough health to beat it. I'm closing in on the end I think but it's too difficult for me. I have it on easy, too! It's such a great game but I think I'm fucked. My last save is at a very difficult section with very little health. If any of you guy's beat it, god bless.

  15. Thronebreaker is a single player role-playing game set in the world of The Witcher that combines narrative-driven exploration with unique puzzles and card battle mechanics. The game spins a truly regal tale of Meve, a war-veteran queen of two Northern Realms — Lyria and Rivia. Facing an imminent Nilfgaardian invasion, Meve is forced to once again enter the warpath, and set out on a dark journey of destruction and revenge.
  16. From Engadget article that was posted too early and then pulled: The core game will be renamed to Destiny 2: New Light Once Shadowkeep launches on September 17th, the base game will go free-to-play and include "all year one content, including "foundational modes, activities and rewards."" So you'll be able to play the base game, as well as the content added as part of the Curse of Osiris and Warmind expansions, for free "This represents a change for the Destiny franchise as it seeks to lure gamers away from popular free titles like Fortnite. Previously, players paid upfront for the game and bought big expansions to gain access to new raids, missions and in-game items, either separately or as an annual pass subscription. Now, the core game will stay free, while additional content will be made available in the form of paid "à la carte" offerings like Shadowkeep." Going forward, no more content will be made exclusive to one platform over others. All platforms will have the same access to all new content at the same time Cross-save will be added for Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia. No PS4 support for now Soon, the game will move from Battle.net to Steam on PC. Existing Battle.net players will be able to migrate all characters and purchases over to the Steam version once this happens
