  1. The Upcoming Games Thread...

    Hope this gets a Steam/PC release at some point. Speaking of... still waiting on Monster Hunter World. :/
  2. The Dragon Age Thread

    So, not sure if anyone's followed Dragon Age 4's development (or lack there of), but there's been a bit of news. Basically, BioWare is 99% focused on Anthem, and though there is indeed a team working on DA, it's a very small team. The main creator/head of the series has left the studio, and he's unsure which direction they'll take the story in. When he was still there, it was going toward the obvious Solas-focused route; which I'm still hoping for. My guess is we won't see this game until late 2019 or early 2020 though.
  3. Far Cry 5

    I buy new for games I'm anticipating. But I try to avoid paying full retail price. For PC games, there are vendors that will often sell 10-25% below retail value. Bought ME:A for $47, Shadow of War for $35, AC:O for $40, etc. The catch is: all you get is an activation code for Steam/Uplay/Origin. Which is fine because I don't need the cases or booklets anyway. Video game pricing discussion interests me. Although I've been disappointed in the gradual increase in new game prices over the last 15 years or so, we're also receiving a lot more content (specifically: quality content) in the games we buy. Generally, at least. That's part of my reasoning too. Thinking of doing a new build later this year, if the GTX 2000 series comes out.
  4. The Gear Thread

    I think that's a fair price/strategy as well. It's pretty beat, so I'd go as low as $400 if you aren't getting bites at $450-$500. But I wouldn't part with it for less than $400.
  5. Far Cry 5

    I probably won't on release, but I will get it eventually. I haven't played any of the others, but this one looks like it could be a good time.
  6. Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow

    Thanks, I'll check these out. Was just listening to Spotlight Kid yesterday!
  7. Where is everyone??

    I don't have Instagram.
  8. Where is everyone??

    Where/when can I buy this?
  9. What are you currently playing? Last game played?

    Sure. I'm about 8 hours in, so I still have a lot to experience. But so far, it's been surpassing my expectations constantly. I didn't really research the game throughout it's development, or prior to buying it. Thought I knew about KC:D for a while, For Honor had my medieval gaming attention. So I've been really pleasantly surprised as I play through. To summarize, Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a classic-style hero story RPG that takes you through a real world environment and history (to a very high degree of historical accuracy). All of the armor, combat, siege/battle tactics, cultural qualities, quests, cities, maps, etc. are designed to be as accurate as possible. Although that's commendable itself, the amazing thing this game does is it combines that painstaking attention to history with a terrific RPG formula - I don't think there's been anything quite like this game before. You have all of the RPG standards: risky but rewarding combat, trading/crafting, speech choices (with persuasive characteristics), a large open world (I haven't ventured too far, but I don't think there are any invisible walls), a leveling/perk system, a huge amount of items/loot/misc stuff, a minigame in taverns, different solutions to quests, etc.. Being a 2018 game, but not from a AAA developer or publisher, I wasn't sure what to expect in things like graphics and overall polishing. Well the graphics are terrific, I have it lightly modded on PC and it's definitely a contender for best looking game I've ever played. And I really haven't noticed bugs, glitches, or oddities at all (AC: Origins bugs are still fresh in my mind). EDIT: Although I haven't noticed any, a lot of bugs are being reported. The team is working on patching them. The story is where you may expect this game to fall short, given how well it does everything else. Nope! The story is gripping, engaging, heartbreaking, and mentally rewarding. And because the setting isn't Ferelden or Nirn or <insert typical RPG world here>, the story is that much more real and immersive. I'm sure there are things I'm forgetting to mention, but my bet is this game is going to cement itself as an all time great. EDIT: And it has the best NPC facial/movement animations I've ever seen. And the voice acting is 99% excellent so far, only one not-so-good performance and I think his role is done.
  10. What are you currently playing? Last game played?

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance has taken over Divinity's spot for now. This is looking to be a masterpiece RPG. Haven't felt this good about a new game since I played DA: Inquisition in 2015.
  11. What are you currently playing? Last game played?

    Preordered and downloaded Star Citizen/Squadron 42 a few weeks ago. Very buggy, and not much to do in game at the moment. I've been following development for around a year though, and it looks like it's going to be an incredible project once the product is a bit more fleshed out.
  12. Solo: A Star Wars Story

  13. Sunny has been removed from Netflix, and I am irate about it. EDIT: But while I'm here... Frontier is great. And there was a Jack Taylor mini-series with Iain Glen which was pretty good.
  14. What are you currently playing? Last game played?

    I am loving Divinity: Original Sin 2. I didn't play the first one (just a read a brief synopsis since they're not directly related), though I plan to play it after I finish this one. I've never been into isometric before, but I've been craving a classic-style RPG, and this is really doing it for me. I'm on the ship, just left Fort Joy. I did play a bit of Divinity II, but I found the lore very hard to get into and the overall gameplay just sort of meh.
  15. Battlefront 2 (EA)

    I played for about a month. Lost interest and haven't touched it in a few weeks. I did the first 2-3 hours of the story, thought it was fine, and went to multiplayer. Multiplayer is really what these games are about. You should give it a try. I agree the graphics are pretty good. It's a much better game than the first one for sure, but I'm still not terribly impressed. And for those who have played MP: almost everyone I talk to agrees space is a lot more fun than ground. I only liked 3-4 of the ground maps; the smaller ones feel like classic BF/CoD nade fests. EDIT: And yeah, if you're looking for good Jedi fighting mechanics, you won't find it here. You unfortunately have to go back in time quite a bit (KoToR, Force Unleashed, Jedi Knight series, etc.).
