I have been playing Mega Man 11 on and off for a few weeks now and I'm just now starting to like it. I don't know what it was that repelled me so much -- perhaps it was the annoyingly accurate enemy attackers, the 2 or more minibosses in every stage, or instant death traps at every turn. It feels and plays like a MM game, but these things seem like they just said, "Hey, MM games are supposed to be really hard, so let's make sure we put some frustrating shit in here," As I've said before, I don't think Mega Man games are that hard, aside from 9 and 10, so I don't know where this idea that these are supposed to be rage-inducing games came from. Anyway, the game finally clicked with me recently, especially after I got the upgrade for the Speed Gear that lets you move at normal speed while slowing everything else down (why did it previously slow the player down, too?). This is good because the game actively wants you to play with the Speed Gear (moreso than the Power Gear, which I rarely use), and when you do, the game is much more fun.

 

However, I got to the fucking Yellow Devil boss today, the worst boss in MM history, and it pissed me off so bad that I quit and I am not sure if I'll be playing it again anytime soon.

 

I'm also sporadically playing Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, which is pretty cool, as well as Nier: Automata, but I haven't played it in about a month, so I need to get back to it. I think my aversion to MM11 actually has a lot to do with the fact that I haven't actually felt like putting a lot of effort into games (or anything, for that matter) lately. I'm not up for a challenge right now. Hopefully that will subside in the new year, preferably before Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes comes out.

Not even at a discount should anyone buy a Sonic game.

I was more into Jazz Jackrabbit back in the day, which was basically a DOS clone. Although you did get a gun pewpew, which I don't think Sonic ever had

Great movie. I was glad that it turned out to be a faithful adaptation of the manga and much better than the anime.

I agree. I haven't read much manga, I'll have to check it out

Morphite.

 

I'm not sure if I like it or not yet. I've only played for about 2 hours. It's like a casual Metroid Prime... Mixed with... Resource gathering for upgrades.

Oo

 

I've heard a lot of people say it's like No Mans Sky, but I don't really get that vibe.

I thought the same but I hesitated on the black friday deal so now I'm just being stubborn and cheap. Sekiro is right around the corner though. If they decide to remaster Demon Souls I'll reconsider

O shit, you play it too? I started it in September on android but I'm only just now getting to the final mission. Actually works quite well on mobile.

 

I still think it bears a lot of similarities to No Man's Sky, and some might even argue that it's essentially No Man's Sky Lite. But the vibe is different, and adopts Metroid-style elements like you said. And it has its own narrative, so it's distinct enough to be its own title.

Hyped for 2019's lineup of games:

Ion Maiden (full)
Metro Exodus
Far Cry: New Dawn
Rage 2
Atomic Heart
The Outer Worlds
Cyberpunk 2077 (possibly)

And there are probably one or two I forgot, but am stoked regardless. Bye bye social life lol

Episode 3 of DUSK is SO GOOD. Excellent game.

I knew you'd enjoy it. De facto GOTY 2018.

 

Does the level design get more interesting as it goes on? Picked it up a couple of weeks ago and am on E1M7 and at the moment it all seems a little empty and soulless - Like if it were an early beta of a Red Neck Rampage sequel using the Quake engine.

 

And obviously my dig isn't about the graphics itself - I enjoy the aesthetic (though am curious as to, despite the lo-fi texture & model resolution, how the game is over 3gb ...) just the actual design of enemies and levels are a bit ... I guess a comparison would be as Freedoom is to the commercial ID maps this is to Quake. So far that is, as per my first query - Does the map builds improve through the episodes ?

It definitely gets really good. Genuinely loved playing this game

Ah cool, definitely gonna stick at it. Probably overhyped it in my mind as I'd heard such good things about it and have a love of 90s fpss's'sses.

Dead Cells is on sale and I really would like to play it.  But I don't know if I want to put myself through another roguelike torture.  It looks very fun tho.  

I have been mainly playing path of exile since the Betrayal season started 2 weeks ago.  I've picked it up here and there over the years, but this time around it clicked and I am loving it.  Enough so that I'm considering dropping $60 on a core supporter package, mainly so I can get all the stash/currency/trade tabs.

Dusk definitely gets weirder and more intense after Episode 1. It builds up beautifully.

 

I read somewhere that the main developer David Szymanski also had S.T.A.L.K.E.R. influence in the making of Dusk, and in fact was originally going to have it set in Ukraine.

Dusk is great.

 

Looking forward to DOOM Eternal.

Aye, Doom Eternal. That's one I forgot.

Ha, yeah I got it during their holiday sale.

=P

 

And I do see the similarities with NMS, but the vibe... Atmosphere... It's just... Completely separate from NMS in my mind.

Shakedown Hawaii

Metroid Prime 4

Bayonetta 3

Mario Golf Switch (please)

GBA re-releases (pretty please)

Ha, I just got a GBA for Xmas.

=D

I've only got 6 games for it ATM, but I can't wait to rebuild my collection. I think the GBA is my favorite gaming console/device. The library of games it has (especially considering it plays GB/GBC games too) is crazy good.

also, SpinTires: MudRunner. strangely engrossing! wasn't sure if i'd get into it but the amazingly detailed Getting Bogged physics are satisfying AF to play with.
