I'm installing the first KOTOR plus mods that give you more force powers.

If you're playing on PC look into the modding community. Look up essential mods for the PC version.

I tried to play Prey a couple days ago but really couldn't get into it. Apparently, people are comparing it to BioShock, and I also couldn't get into that game. I guess this is the price I pay for not doing much research, lol.

I'll surely do that when I finish the vanilla game + dlc. How good was it in your experience?

I think.

However, it's tough to say because it's different enough that you might not like it. I loved Black Flag but that was mostly the sailing aspect about it. Other parts were fun as well but if it wasn't the sailing, I'm not sure if I would enjoy it as much.

Origins isn't about collectibles, a ton of crafting or ticking off boxes. It's about doing side quests (where are plentiful and involved), getting gear drops and a little ticking of boxes. But the gameplay side is much better. You can actually take down an entire base of peeps using multiple different methods without resolving to using the berserk dart all the time. Climbing is still integral to the experience but it's not about climbing tall structures but using it to play around with the mechanics of the stealth system.

Same here. Even the best old System Shocks never did it for me, the same way Doom or Duke Nukem 3D did.

I guess I just want to blow shite up, and not spend so much time fiddling with upgrades or stats..

A pretty solid game, better than Fallout 3 IMO.

Though before you play even the vanilla version I would recommend at least considering one mod to install: the unofficial patch. It fixes bugs none of the official patches do.

Played Wolfenstein 2 recently. Was a very very good game. One of the better single player shooters I've played in a long time. Was very refreshing to see a FPS game whose sole focus was single player.

Also playing Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Halo 5, and Forza 7.

I just finished Dishonored 2. Man, what a fantastically terrible ending to a great game. Really soured the whole experience.

Not sure if I'll get to Death of the Outsider any time soon. I may play some System Shock or Sexy Brutale to refresh.

I got it free on Gog several years back.

Check out the widescreen and texture packs.

So I finally finished a true pacifist route in Undertale. Only took three years.

Because of a self imposed limitation against armor swaps, or healing items. Turns out as much as I love shmups, I am really, really bad at hard games. Really bad.

But the ending was great, the story had a neat retro vibe to it, and the gameplay was a creative spin on the shooter formula, and the characters are pretty danged memorable. Think I actually grew attached to Papyrus, who reminds me of a nicer Skeletor.


I look forward to killing him. Genocide, here I come..

Can't say I'd rate it that highly, as I feel like it still has some of the same issues that I had with earlier games, but it's enjoyable enough so far. Better than Syndicate for sure.

Haven't finished Origins yet, but I can already see it does some things better. Combat for example, and the options that come with it.

TBH, It actually annoys me that they took out the Berserk darts. Add new stuff, sure, but not at the expense of other stuff.

The stealth is better though, yeah. Things like the variety of bows too. And I like how basically everything is climbable.

I'm seeing a lot of comparisons to Witcher 3 combat.

Which I haven't played, either. But I do like Witcher 2's combat, so if ACO plays somewhat like that, it's a good thing imo

I believe Zelda has major problems within it's game and if it wasn't a Zelda game, it would not be highly rated as such.

You can still berserk people. It's just has to be done close. Those darts were way overpowered and were used as a crutch in the previous games.

I don't play Zelda so I wouldn't know.

Yeah I unlocked that. It's not bad, but I still miss the darts. I'd just like the option of the darts, tbh.

True, they were pretty darn cool.

I do like the poison darts and how they work. I also like how you can poison bodies as proximity mines....

And those little tidbits while waiting for the game to load, there is one that basically says, "put a dead guy on a horse, and then poison him and then run the horse into the camp".
