Re: Game Deals, Sales & Specials!

Hmm..? Another one of these titles that I've never heard of that is apparently widely popular?
Let's have a look.

"Open world multiplayer..
Early Access.."


Ah, heh.
Think I'll give that one a wide berth.

Re: Game Deals, Sales & Specials!

Can't swing a cat without hitting a Star Wars 'May the 4th' pun related sale, whether it be Gog, Steam, PSN etc. I'm particularly interested in picking up KOTOR1 from Gog, haven't been able to get my steam version of it running for the life of me (Been through all the relevant fix and FAQ threads to...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Told myself I'd cut down on the crowdfunding, got an email and heard news of Phoenix Point over on Fig + a $5 discount for being a 'super backer'.
Caved and backed that for more turnbased X-com-like goodness :P

Re: Game Deals, Sales & Specials!

Played a bit of free StarCraft this morning. I generally hate RTS's but I really loved the Star/Warcraft games from Blizzard due to the stories and interesting character arcs. Reminds me that I should really look into getting that sequel set of games at some point. Was originally waiting for the thr...

Oh christ.. what is it about tomorrow that is so special to a bunch of gaming publishers? I just came to the realization that Yookalaylee, Cosmic Star Heroine and Planescape Torment EE come out tomorrow on the 12th. I've backed/pre-ordered all of them; and I'm still only halfway through these intere...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Been playing Thimbleweed park, almost forgot I backed it until the last few release announcement updates. A much better throwback and Lucas arts style adventure game than that Broken Age disaster, loads of references and easter eggs to the Ron Gilbert 90's classics. Seems to be actually canonically ...

they didn't even get me Alex Kidd with our console. The best game I had on the Sega Master System was actually chosen by dad (Double Dragon)! Mine was one of those models that had Alex Kidd inbuilt into the system. Turning it on with no cartridge in would boot that up. Fun ragey times when another ...

OK, I'm confused... are we meant to post our favourite game released that year, or our favourite game we played that year... coz I'm gonna have a lot of years with the likes of Diablo 2, Diablo 3, UT, and BF1942 on it if it was based on top game played. Oh, I didn't even think of that. I went by re...

Oh, yeah. I just went by their actual release date from my favorite ones I remember playing the earliest on the C64/Snes when I was old enough to actually play things.

Noticed that pattern also.
Seems to go hand in hand with all the polls and what-not that puts the 'average gamer' somewhere in our thirties.

Re: Game Deals, Sales & Specials!

I specifically went into and bought the USA version of the bundle. Have no interest in JC3, and I prefer 5 chances at getting a decent Square back catalogue game than 3. Plus I figure with a big AAA title front and center there for the EU/AUS one, the other three mystery games have a bigger chance o...

Switch between 'His Ally Barret'; instead of just having full reign and control of any party member as you'd expect? Sneaking sections with tossable grenades and the like?

Re: Middle Earth: Shadow of War officially announced

I keep hearing about how good the original was, and I indeed picked it up in some $5 sale at some point.
Tried to play it a few times but I simply cannot get past the awful mouse acceleration and lack of FoV options.

Here's to hoping these things get rectified in this one.

I hate my carpets, especially since it causes some rugs to messily bunch up.

So far Torment Tides of Numenera is living up to the hype for me. Quite enjoying it so far as one of the better crpg's in recent memory, wasn't the biggest fan of Pillars or Tyranny to be honest. Got a massive nostalgia kick the first time my character said 'Updated my Journal' in game. :) Just wond...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - February 2017

I still don't fully know what Horizon Zero Dawn *is*.
Looks like an open world game with robots or something. I dunno, sounds interesting. Might wait for reviews and/or a price drop.

I'm going to be plenty busy with Torment: Tides of Numenera launching in a few days :)

I mean, they were also releasing DLC packs about once every month or two from the start at the same time to double dip..
