Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Everywhere I look I'm seeing people talking up how good Divinity 2 is. Makes me chipping away at the first one before opting to start up the sequel that much harder. Ah well, atleast I'll have something good to look forward to eventually. :D RE the Aussie dollar thing, I would have thought it would ...

Re: Show Us Your Latest Purchase - September 2017

Oh ok, fair enough. Yeah was googling it a bit more today leading up to its launch next week, seems like it should be able to run straight off a TV's usb port even, failing that my power strip has USB ports on them anyway, all good. I thought the plug itself was some US thing all this time and from ...

Re: Show Us Your Latest Purchase - September 2017

Oh right, I forgot about that USB Power adapter thingy.. Still not 100% sure I understand what I need, is it just that the power plug thing itself is a US plug, and we need a US>AU adapter for power? I think My steam link came with a handful of adapters I might be able to use if that's the case, if ...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Is that the enhanced edition on the Xbox or still the classic? I too was well put off by the unintuitive and barely decipherable journal entries when that first launched. (I mean, I don't want 2017 style streamlined HUD arrows pointing me linearly everywhere, but *some* sort of direction and locatio...

Got Destiny 2 with my video card, so I guess I may as well check it out.
Wasn't overly impressed with the recent beta though.

In other news; Prey: anyone played it? Grabbed it, barely touched it and needing inspiration. The full game? No not yet. I'm definitely considering picking it up during this 50% off sale after playing the Demo that they put out a week or two ago though. (Especially now that Bethesda has removed all...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

One of the writers who is fed up with Valve's incompetence posted and leaked what may be a version of episode 3.
It's not hard to find online.

I have zero faith or love for Valve anymore these days, so I'm pretty grateful to at the very least have some sort of closure after reading it.

Re: Game Deals, Sales & Specials!

Hmm, just got an email from EB Games about some Snes-themed 3DSXL system.. or something. Looks like it might be a limited stock thing like the nes and snes minis are. I dunno, I've never been into handheld gaming and never owned a 3DS or any of its variants. Someone here might be interested though. ...

Still missing most of Telltale's relatively newer stuff on my end (Batman, all of Minecraft, New Frontier, Guardians) Unfortunately nothing here in this bundle gives me everything I'm still after in one all inclusive tier, and like most people (I'd wager), pretty much everything from $1 to the BTA i...

I also picked up Quantum Break during the sales. Got it from Nuuvem using the 'ol Brazilian VPN/pricing trick for chips. It's Remedy though, not something David Cage made. Already seen loads of Alan Wake references. Yeah enjoying the story so far, the actual gameplay bits are fairly standard and so-...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Cheers, so if I've got a boatload of spare free time up my sleeves (which I don't) it pretty much follows the grindy time filler role of your typical MMO then. Fair enough. May as well give it a look-see once it comes out, doubt I'd ever get to that high a level of play though where it becomes a cho...
