What Video Games Are You Currently Playing [Part II]

Recommended Posts

Yeah CP2077 looks like GTA and Deus Ex had a baby. I have little doubt that it'll be the next big game.

I've been playing XCOM: Enemy Within on mobile on the side, and it's a little jankier than I remember. Today I was playing an abduction mission where one of my assaulters had a 94 percent hit chance on a flanked alien and he missed. And on the current terror mission I'm on one of the civilians that got killed by an alien sounded just like Homer Simpson going "d'oh!"

As for Metro Exodus (again), supposedly former S.T.A.L.K.E.R. devs were part of the development team, which makes sense.

Age of Empires 2 HD.. the music alone in this game is such a throwback for me.

Been playing some AoE 2 with friends recently and we got our asses kicked by the IA at the intermediate level of difficulty. It felt as if I wasn't playing the same game I did when I was a kid lol

AoE2 was crazy hard. i dont ever remember winning a game. even when you typed in cheats the ai opponent got them aswell, so you would storm over with 1000 units only to find the ai had them aswell.

i actually think if command and conquer red alert 2 had more adpative AI i would stiull be playing it to this day. even with 8 AIs on hard mode though, they only had 2 attack patterns they would just repeat every 3 minutes. the first 20 minutes was hard as fuck, but once you had your base strong you just annihilated them.

current game: slay the spire. verdict, awesome. roguelike card game, no randomly generated dps stats ingame so the level of strategy is phenomonal. ive only played the ironclad so far, reached the act 3 boss but got annihilated.

My most played FPS is back again with its nice and lovely chunky unfiltered pixels. It's kind of like a Brutal Quake, with hints of Quake II's aesthetic thrown in. It's no doubt also in response to Dusk & Devil's Hand bringing back the 90s software rendered vibe. It's still in beta but it seems OK so far ...

Even if you have Darkplaces installed anyway I recommend using the version supplied with the mod as I had loads of visual glitches with the more recent version I had installed (missing textures, holes in maps, console error messages being thrown up)

This looks very cool, but the weapons NOT being centred on the screen feels really weird. I’ll still give this a try tomorrow though

 

I was wondering what seemed off, couldn't quite place why it seemed different ... you'll be happy to know that in the General Options menu when you press the 'Home' key that you can choose to have centralised weapons. You'll be wanting to head in the menus anyways as the mad man has 'mouse invert' on by default :blink:

Slay the Spire is my most played game in the last year (300hrs, omg). It hits every mark for addictive rogue-like elements and deckbuilders. I didn't realize they finally got out of Early Access!

This sucks. After what appears to be almost a decade in development, Nintendo has pulled the plug on Retro Studios' Metroid Prime 4, and are basically starting over. I can't imagine the morale at Retro, I think they've even been thru layoffs and restructuring in the last year.

Sounds like Metroid Prime 4 is in development hell basically. As with any game today, it's better that they take their time and be thorough and diligent with their development, than to rush something out all broken and buggy.

The Resident Evil 2 remaster just dropped and has been getting positive reviews across the board so far. Now I'm tempted.

Does it support PSVR?

The video says Retro wasn't working on it, and that Nintendo is bringing them back in to take it on. So, good news for Retro no?

yeah pretty sure it was being developed by bamco before. don't know why they wouldn't have started with retro. hopefully this'll light a fire under them to rerelease the first 3 in hd with normal controls

What I've gleaned from the sparse info available, Retro started this game some years back, got too much on their plate, and Nintendo subbed it out to Bandai Namco Singapore, who have apparently fucked it to the point it has to go back to Retro for a restart. So then, what the Hell have Retro been doing since the last Donkey Kong Country?? There's a rumored Star Fox racing game, but that could have been cancelled by now.

Just came in the mail. Been waiting for this for years. Loved remake, RE4, and RE7, but never got a chance to play RE2 when it came out originally.
