I'm further along in Steep and Aphex Twin - Flim was just the backdrop for a cutscene.  That one caught me off guard, but was perfect with snowy mountains of Japan.

 

Turns out the ost is riddled with very good music:

Is Steep any good? I flirted w/ getting it as a way to play a "totally chill" game as a counterpoint to the FPS intensity of COD and the Red Dead Redemptionness of RDR2 but stayed on the fence.

 

 

 

It's not Cool Boarders or SSX unfortunately, it's a bit dull. Currently free on PS+. Wouldn't buy it otherwise.

 

 

mm - k. Good to know - SSX was so flippin' awesome (no pun intended). . .

It definitely quenches that "totally chill" fix for a little while.  I was hoping it would fill the gap the Skate series left behind for me, but that was pipe dreams.  

 

 

thnx! Ok, some diff of opinions here - sounds like something to look in to, but maybe once a price drop occurs.

 

Skate was dope - I have . . .I'll have to check but Skate 2 I think is back compatible on Xbox and I snagged that a while ago. . .keep forgetting to go back. It was sort of the perfect "chill" game - particularly because you can pick up your board and walk around/totally ignore any challenges if u want to.

Looks like Metro Exodus will let you explore desert environs. Maybe it'll take place not only in Russia, but in Mongolia as well?

 

Man, that was boring.

Also, what the hell was up with the sound design? Why did it sound like Fred Flintstone punching Barney whenever the character punched one of those monsters? And the healing sound?

Oh, and the Asian NPC's voice was 2D positioned instead of 3D positioned.

I hope this was an old built of the game because this did not look good.

I can see where you're coming from Squee, being that sound design is your line of work if I'm not mistaken.

Personally I feel optimistic because this is a type of game environment completely new to the series. And there was another review in which the guy claimed to put in 4 hours of gameplay and his impressions were positive all around. And I need something to look forward to in times like these.

Is there a WATMM Minecraft server still or is that long gone?

I was really looking forward to this as well and again, maybe it this was an old built from GamesCom or E3 or something. Also, it didn't really help that the person playing was fumbling around.

The Metro series always seemed kind of a step down from STALKER to me. Way too linear in comparison.

That one looks like it could be a lot of fun. I hope it's more like Tenchu than Dark Souls. I gave Dark Souls a shot and didn't like it at all.

yep,TENCHU Z was one of my fave last-gen titles,pretty under-rated,it took me 4 attempts until DARK SOULS finally felt rewarding and worth pushing forward,give it another try,especially the remastered version

God, I hate gamer crowds. Sounded like the world's longest orgasm.

The first two Metro games are definitely linear, no question about it - albeit with superior graphics. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. may be aged and janky by comparison, but it still grants you vastly more freedom in the way of exploration. Plus there's a shit ton of mods for it.

 

Probably worth noting that both game series are based on novels. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was based on the 1971 sci-fi novel Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky (and the 1979 film Stalker by Andrei Tarkovsky), whereas the original Metro 2033 novel by Dmitry Glukhovsky was published in its native Russia in 2005. I've seen the first half of the Stalker film years ago, but I still ought to read these novels at some point.

 

Anyway, with Metro Exodus less than a month away, you have the best of both worlds. Open world AND stellar graphics. And if S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is for sure happening in 2021, the developers will surely be taking notes.

 

(also looking forward to Atomic Heart later this year, which seems to be a melding of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Bioshock elements)

Sekiro looks better and better each time I see it... can't wait! Have they said if it will run in 4K on PS4 Pro?

Just played the Resident Evil 2 Demo, which was fantastic. Recently, I have also tried Hades, beautiful art, isometric action. I am looking forward to Diablo 3's Season 16 starting tonight! I will be playing a Wizard.

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

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

Watched some videos of Cyberpunk 2077. Probably my second most anticipated game this year. Happy to see vehicles in any story driven FPS, ala Halo or Half Life 2.

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.
