Just finished Max Payne 3. I honestly believe that the people that made the game never played Max Payne 1 & 2 in their life. Everything feels wrong, from the absence of noir comic book cutscenes, the fact Max is a useless fart, to the gameplay itself. Bullet dodging used to be fun, here it's just a chore. And let us not forget the crap story we got served as well. I'm glad I got to play, cause now I have arguments to call it a disappointment.

But Hollow Knight is pretty amazing so far, so I got that going for me.
Although I do have a bit of a soft spot for metroidvania games.

Episode 1 is just the intro (yes, a teenage drama). Things get slow in episode 2/3 but it builds up to an excellent crecendo in episodes 4/5. You should really give the complete game a try. It turns very adult.
Totally agree. Episode 1 is exactly just an intro/tutorial.

Completed Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance.

70+ hours of intense gameplay on Proud mode and I barely made it. Can't even imagine how hard Critical mode is gonna be. Young Xehanort is the hardest boss I've ever encountered. Any kind of his attack leaves you with 1% HP, his combos are unstoppable, plus he teleports all the time.

Dream Drop Distance is my favorite KH game after Birth By Sleep. Now when I played all 7 KH games I can rate them:

BBS
DDD
KHI
358/2 Days
KHII

It was awesome to see Roxas, Aqua, Terra, Ven and Lea again!

Loved the first Kingdom Hearts. I remember fighting Sephiroth with my friend, we thought that we were doing something wrong because his HP bar didn't go down, but he just had more HP than the first bar shows. :D

@FordGT90Concept I have respect for people that played and enjoyed Remember Me and Life is Strange. Both good games that I was unable to play because I am not smart enough, or I don't have the patience. I always complain about mmo's and dumb shooters either for the repetitiveness or the farming and boring aspect of it. However those are the type of games that I can play, and I am kinda jealous for people that strive in the 2 games mentioned above.
I never got past the tutorial in Life is Strange where you had to get into your apartment and you had to get past the bully girls standing in the entrance. I had to watch the game on youtube cuz i wasn't smart enough to play it. (not one of my proudest moments).
However Dying Light is too dumb even for me to play. This title really holds a high place in my list of worst games ever.

Lol yeah, even the first Sephiroth's HP bar won't go down until you perform 4-5 successful combos.

Sephiroth in KH 1.5 is stronger than KH 2.5 Sephiroth :D But weaker than Lingering Will and Unknown.

It took me a lot of time to beat Sephiroth and even longer than that to beat Unknown, never managed to beat Lingering Will though

I finished Titanfall 2 campaign in 9 hours, really worth it. I'm not a multiplayer type of a gamer but I just tried multi in TF2 and boy, it really is what people say, fantastic. Was gonna try one match just to see, but you just can't play one after you try. I played four and I'm already hooked, great multi.

I've been playing the hell out of Dying Light.
I love me some Dying Light. It stands as one of my top 10 games, which is saying something, considering I bought on release, didn't like and let it sit for a year. Then when I went back it clicked.

I've got well over 150 hours in it. I enjoy just going in and playing post game for 30-45 minutes, just to enjoy the locations with some zombie killing and parkour practice. This is everything Dead Island should have been if they had the resources and time back then.

Yup Dying Light never gets boring, it's nice just to jump in the game to run around and pull off some cool moves on zombies. I got this usb card with it too.



Oh and a set of cards

@rtwjunkie I am about to leave for Alexandria to escort the queen. Aya says there is no turning back. Is this the end of the game ? Or can I still play after this ?
I still have so much to do ....and I don't know... I still see a main quest story lvl 38. The Hidden Ones...Will I be able to still do that ? I am confused. Should I keep doing side quests until lvl 38 and then turn back to Cleopatra ?

That's only to tell you that you will be one-tracked on only that quest. Once it is finished there is still plenty of story. There is an entire western coastline and desert left.


plus even once you finish you can continue playing and cleaning up.

Hint, even after Ptolemy and Cleopatra, there are the Romans to deal with, who dont go home. No secret spoiler there, since that really happened.

I got a little bored with Titafall 2 multi, even though I think it's a lot of fun. I'm just not a multiplayer type of person, deathmatches bore me after a few hours. I'm back to Wolfenstein 2. I finally spent some more time tweaking nvidia freestyle and boy, the game comes to life, it looks spectacular now. Takes a pretty nasty performance hit with all the effects enabled (close to ~20%) but still averages over 100 fps even while recording at 1080p/60. GTX1080 is a beast at 1440p. Uploading videos, will take some time with my crappy internet connection.

Got'em.

Finished Assassin's creed Origins.
Taste is difficult notion. However since here it's all about gaming, I would like to place in balance what can you get right now for the same money. Hard to overpass AC Origins in terms of value. No such thing as a perfect game, but for what is worth in 2018 the content and spectacle is huge.

One important thing comes to mind: we are very far away from actual intelligent A.I. Year after year, they keep bring new games, and the biggest AAA titles always create open world games where, in their advertisement, the worlds are more full of "life" and real as ever.
In reality,it all feels incredibly empty, repetitive and dull. Blows my mind,since I know nothing of creating a video game, how this multi billion company Ubisoft was not able to implement more than 4 different dialog lines for static npc's that you randomly interact with in the world. Yeah, if you bump in or pass by them for the entire duration of the game you get 2 type of voice acting, from 2 type of actors (female and male - so 2 salaries where paid ) that say 2 different things. Total of 4 lines. What would have been the effort to bring in 50 actors and give them enough dialog so while running around with Bayek and interacting with npc you will feel that is a more real world ?
The npc barely move, everything is very still and dull, and the world does not feel alive at all. And bare in mine, AC Origins has the most realistic open world in an open game that was ever created. If you like open world games, this is the epiphany of these types of games! Ubisoft has managed to crush the competition with the best open world experience, that is still super bad becuase I guess the technology is not there yet..... ? I don't know.

I always like to look at a video game, and to determine either how good it is , by placing myself in the shoes of a non-gamer person. If I would give Origins to a person who does not play video games,would it be good ? I strongly believe the answer is clearly NO.
Open worlds don't have the technology to impress or to be fun. They are made for us, gamers... because we approach them from a different point of view.
My mom played Xbox Kinect and has a blast. I know some one else from my family that loved Fifa, and a colleague of mine at work really enjoyed playing with his daughter Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. That's why people in general just like @Drone will probably like Fantasia (or whatever that game is ) more than any of these open world expensive AAA titles. And that's why games that from a blind spot, don't take themselves so seriously and just deliver on exactly what they where made for.
Open world games like Origins will not deliver, and probably wont do so for many years to come. As you can see they are very much put aside. Giving Mario an award at the end of 2017 rather then Origins. The industry and people are no longer impressed with open world.

Coming back to just what Origins was:
- The story was kinda bad, up until the end and kinda boring,it had a strong turn .
- After you embark on the quest with Cleopatra, you can stop and lvl up some more. But for me it was pointless,cuz the story kinda pushes you on....you are always on the run and just focus on the main events. From an immersion point of view, your just not gonna stop, lvl up on side quests for 4 more days and then get back to the npc to trigger the next moment of the story. Once you start that part you need to go all the way, and that is what I did.
- One of the final bosses is an elephant. Very sad,and I was completely against it...almost deleted the game, cuz I did not want to hurt the elephant. Seriously Ubisoft, they had to make the bad guy an animal that is almost extinct and tortured in real world as it is ?! That was disgusting!
- There is a lot of hard work and searching to get the final outfit (the hidden one)

This is me running around on what seams to be a very small portion of the map. Still it took 1 hour ....so yeah the map is big:

Was recently cleaning out a closet and found a box of backup DVDs, empty cases, audio CDs, and more. Also inside was my copy of Final Fantasy Tactics! Been looking for that.

Using a PS2 with component cables, but that won't matter to you as I took the pic of a TV with a phone... it's much nicer in person.

Finished Wolfenstein 2, got I nice surprise at the end - I realized collecting all those enigma codes allows me to use the machine which cracks them and reveals the location of some nazi generals which you then go on missions to take down. Brilliant idea for a side quest.
