I like this new Fallout 3 DLC  

Picked up my oculus quest headset and purchased and played through quite a few titles. I don’t consistently game but when I do I really get into it. The quest is pretty low-powered compared to PSVR bu

Paid tribute to some of the featured artists in my Animal Crossing home

just got the last ending in cyberpunk (the secret one). found the whole thing to be thoroughly enjoyable, guess it's good i was hardly affected by the hype. characters are tropey as hell but very well written at that, really felt em. city's breathtaking, just being able to finally move around neo tokyo freely felt like such a treat. kinda inclined to further dive into the lore / pen & paper stuffs now actually. went stealthy hacker all the way, worked out pretty well. ah, music's pumpin, too.

yeah.

There's a secret ending? The ending I went for apparently pissed off my surviving friends in the game, but I tried to make up for it in the very end. I dunno, wasn't really satisfied with my final choice.

Spoiler

I suppose you went with Arasaka's proposal? I guess the "best" (as in least depressing) ending results in breaking in with the nomads then taking back your body as planned (as opposed to yet another option... *cough*). As for the secret ending: You gotta have 70% rep with Johnny at the point of no return (Nocturne). When asked about how to to continue (on the roof where Misty takes you) don't respond but rather idle for about 5 minutes and Johnny will propose visiting Arasaka tower through the front door all by yourself, to at least not hurt any of your friends in the process. Pretty hard as all enemies seem to be max lvl, fun challenge tho.

Pathfinder: Kingmaker

I've been playing Pathfinder: Kingmaker (2018) the last days.
It's a tactical top-down party-based Role-Playing Game (CRPG) set in and based on the Pathfinder Table-Top Role-Playing Game-System which itself is based on Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition.
It's an RPG in the same vein as: Fallout (1997), Baldur's Gate (1998), Neverwinter Nights (2002) , Dragon Age: Origins (2009) , Divinity: Original Sin (2014), Pillars of Eternity (2015),...
It sure transports me back in time to the good old days of yonder.

It's a good game but it also has some glaring flaws too.
Normally you can play most CRPG without having to study the rules too much.
But Pathfinder is a waaay more complicated and unforgiving system than D&D imo.
I recommend:
- Play with Keyboard and Mouse. Playing with a Controller changes the UI for the worse.
- Play in Turn-Based Combat Mode. It makes fights way more tactical and way less chaotic.
- Read a Guide before you start playing. The game doesn't explain some important Rules.
- Check the Combat Log while playing. So you understand what you're doing wrong.
- Check the Enemy Stats while playing. So you know how to best damage opponents.
- Install the Bag of Tricks Mod. Its tools and cheats will help you enjoy the game more.
- Create your Character, do the Tutorial area, does your Character work? Restart if not.
- Choose the correct Attribute Scores for your Class.
- Min-Max your characters. This game can be very unforgiving. Check the respec Mod.
- Have Animal Companions (Druid, Sacred Huntsmaster Inquisitor, Mad Dog Barbarian, Cleric or Inquisitor with Animal Domain, Ranger, Sylvan Sorcerer). They're OP.
- Be careful of where you go. The Game is somewhat Open-World but has no Level-Scaling.
- Use the Charge ability with your Melee at the start of every fight. It's OP.
- Rest outside and have a Healer (Cleric, Paladin, Bard) with Heal Spells to get your HP back.
- Slow down the timers and easen the events in the Kingdom management section.
- Pump your Attack Rolls (hit chance) because otherwise you will miss a lot (that's an understatement): High Strength for Melee, High Dexterity for Ranged, Flank your Enemies, use weapons with +1 Enhancements, use +1 30ft Bard Inspire Courage, use +1 30ft Cleric Bless, only use Melee on prone enemies, use correct attack stances, take Point Blank Shot feat and Precise Shot feat for Ranged as soon as possible to mitigate the -4 penalty for shooting enemies that are already fighting in melee, try to prevent all (most) penalties to attack rolls, have good RNG (good luck with that),...

All the rest is absolutely great though.

It's just a bit of hassle to set things up to actually start having fun.
I wish the devs hadn't followed the Pathfinder rules this strict.
It might work as a Pen-and-Paper / Table-Talk Game, but maybe not so much as a Video Game.

Currently flipping back and forth between Spider Man: Miles Morales and Ghosts of Tsushima. The latter was one the reasons I was excited to grab a PS5, it hasn't disappointed so far - gorgeous game with an excellent storyline and some strong writing thusfar (though definitely some really odd dialogue portions sometimes - almost feels like two different teams were writing cut-scene and dialogue options sometimes). Loving it. 

Flipped over to No Man's Sky for a few minutes and, man, it's feels like the game that I wished it was when it launched. The Next-Gen touches (frame rate, resolution, density, etc.) really go a long way to making this feel more realized.

I tried a little bit of Sundered the other night and really wasn't feeling it. There's no direction to what you're supposed to be doing and the default controls are awkward. The animation and sound design is really good though. Wish it were a better game.

I'm kind of torn on buying a new console or just building a new PC gaming rig.

I'm enjoying Tsushima too, it looks and feels great on ps5. I have been doing a lot of side missions so I am pretty overpowered now. I have not been in a rush to finish the story, but I think Hitman 3 is out next week...

Nice! Yeah, I'm very early on, but sort of plan on just kind of wandering at some point - I mean, the game really is gorgeous. For some reason I get a little of the same feeling I got when playing Shadow of the Colossus... just sort of lost in this other, lovingly rendered world. ..

The largest Fallout mod ever is about to be released on Steam on the 15th - simply titled The Frontier. Basically a F:NV mega mod that takes place in Portland, OR. With driveable vehicles.

Seven years in development and it's finally about to drop - and free to play. Can't wait.

It's just like I said. It looks good. But it's undercooked as hell, like a lot of games really. shame. Discovered the word eurojank when reading reviews of this game. Eurojank lol (Greedfall)

I finished Ghost of Tsushima. Basically 100% except for the silly stuff like the banners. Thought it was gorgeous, but boring story. Good gameplay. I'll clear camps of villains in games all day.

I started Resident Evil 3 remake, and it's pretty cool. More open than I expected considering it's largely outside rather than a mansion.

Started playing Shovel Knight a couple of days ago. Turns out it's deceptively difficult.

I'll prolly wait til the weekend to jump into Fallout: The Frontier. (Still don't see it available on Steam, but it should be literally any moment now)

Playing a bunch of stuff - trying the "small bites" method (playing many games a little bit at a time):

Jedi: Fallen Order (PS5 patch makes it soo much better)

Ghosts of Tsushima (goddamn Kurosawa movie, innit)

Demon's Souls (beautiful game... best PS5 graphics so far IMO)

Resogun (classic twin-stick shooter)

      This is just a rant.
       
      I am so fucking sick of people dismissing Ae's post-Chiastic output ("where are the tunes?!") and recommending their early albums instead as "absolute masterpieces" with "soul" and "melody" and "blah blah blah".
       
      It just screams "I am a stupid, impatient, close-minded, casual, basic, stuck-in-the-past, not-capable-of-listening, knowing-nothing-about-music-melody-rhythm-and-structure, accidentally-bumped-into-IDM-when-I-was-young-and-now-I-am-old-and-tired-with-kids-in-need-of-easy-fun, rather-listen-to-boards-of-canada-because-deep-emotions-tunes-nature-and-geocatching-for-rare-eps, I-can't-hum-it-in-a-shower dumbass".
       
      I fucking hate those idiots (especially when they talk about melodies when they actually mean timbres...).
       
      I absolutely get they don't like the music (and that is perfectly fine, don't get me wrong) but their arguments and points are asking for a punch in their faces. So fucking stupid it actually hurts.

      So for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle.
       
      I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...)
       
      Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game.
       
      Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).

      Anyone else been playing Elite: Dangerous recently? I've got it and have been enjoying it like hell. I've recently been playing around Alliance territory in my ultra-modified Viper Mk III destroying any wanted ships in my path. Although it's amazing, the game still feels a little empty, but I'm sure the developers will flesh it out more soon enough.

      And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES
       
      So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation!
       
      There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like!
       
      So, here are the important rules:
       
      1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015!
      2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc.
      3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom.
      4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes.
       
      In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime.
      In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully.
       
      Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
