Ooo man! STEPH from Life is Strange True Colors

I am so in love with her. She is the perfect girlfriend material. I just love how they draw the character and the voice, ohhh the voice is like the best asmr voice it just gives me the tingles.
Honestly, the game is very good, and totally worth I just don't think I'm in the right place. I need to play this when its raining outside and it's cold weather. I just continue to play it because of Steph every scene with her is fire....
Something tells me she might be playing for the other team and her and Alex (female protagonist) might get in a romance scene.
Steph has the perfect character i just vibe whenever she talks

Something tells me you didn't play LiS 1 BtS or just didn't pay attention if you are wondering that about Steph.:)
But yes its nice to see her making a comeback.

After I finished HZD 'not even close atm' I will also pick up this game and play it since I'm a huge LiS fan. 'Well mainly 1 and BtS'
Till then I will try to stay away from spoilers/game play vids.

More Geometry Dash. No screenshots this time, sorry!

I've made 2 more auto levels recently (and am close to completing a third). IDs are 73645262 (AutoLustre) and 73668017 (AutoShrimp). AutoShrimp needs a better name (I like integrating the word "auto" into the level's original name, such as Magmauto Sanctuary, Generation Auto, Autobound, etc.) but I don't know what I should do.

I've also started a big project, Atlantis. It's an extension of Aquarius (29416734) that uses the full 4 minutes and 43 seconds of the song.
I'm not touching decorating until the layout is done, since I know diddly squat about decorating right now. Looking at the guts of well-decorated levels is helping though as I understand some basics.
I'm guessing the finished level will be 7-star Harder or 8-star Insane, depending on how hard I make things.

Find the stable in the center under the first castle, fastest horsies around and they don't tire.

I keep getting killed by bloody nights on horseback lol, the xbow takes too long to reload, though i did find one with a 4 shot mag. It is a nice game, me and my GF was in tears laughing at the farting.

Yea, there's poppies or some flower that grows in the forest that makes your character high. I think it is after the main quest after you cross the bridge.

Also back in Witcherland. Finally gonna dust off my knuckles to go off to do the HoS and BaW expansions. Just played half an hour tbh. Feeling lethergic last few days if i'm being honest because of 2nd vaccine shot. Can't pull myself to do hours upon hours of RPG run today.

Does Steph look exactly like the woman from KOTOR Remake?

@Khonjel i can't play Witcher anymore. This feels like it needs to have its own dedicated thread.
I installed Witcher 3 cuz is aw on YB some heavy modded stuff. And I wanted to add all the graphical improvements mods 4k textures etc etc to see just how good the game can look.
I can't :| No joke....I just can't

Witcher 3 is old. Like old...like something really old.
After playing Valhalla and seeing how amazing a character can move, every single muscle all articulations when climbing or jumping ....Geralt is stiff. Like stiff as made of wood and so is Roach the horse. When he is fighting he moves no muscles, the animations look old and the hitbox is messed up, his hits don't even connect to the enemies he's hitting in the air...everything about the game is old. Facial animation when characters are talking...what facial animation they are all made of wood.

Witcher 3 plays old, it looks old everything about it is old. Facial animation in Life is Strange is like watching a movie, there is almost...almost 90% no difference. The same can be said about Valhalla.

I don't know what will happen when they will release the remastered Witcher 3 with ray-tracing...but I feel like its gonna be an old old game with ray tracing and that's it.

Y'know? Metro Exodus is a cool ass game. I really like it.

But you know what I don't like? The sandstorms. In NG+ you turn on more extreme weather. It's great. They're beautiful. The sandstorms look amazing all enhanced what wicha tracin rays nstuff.

Problem is, the sandstorm behavior is balls. It's seriously balls. I'm not pulling punches on it. The main problem is that when they trigger, they sometimes just will NEVER time out. You can sit there and they'll go until the game crashes, however long that takes. Go sleep somewhere, still there. Sleep all you want, it will never end. You have to enter another zone on the map for it to clear. Not all are like this, just some.

You have to watch where you are when one comes. There's a variant that is THICK. Herein lies the problem. Where am I? Can you tell me where I am? It's daytime btw.
Metro  Exodus Screenshot 2021.09.17 - 18.20.40.48.png


I'll tell you where I am. I am in that valley where the first split ship is. I can't get out because I cannot see anything until I hit a wall. It's this narrow channel with tons of crap to snag on, none of which you will see even the faintest outline of. All I can do is load back. Listen, I'm all for this kind of stuff reducing visibility. But THIS becomes a thing in a matter of 2 seconds, and then stays 4-ever. You go from normal to engulfed out of nowhere. It's cool in concept, but it fucking sucks to play through. I knew it was going to get like this, too. I was trying to get out of the area.

Just... why? :laugh: Who's cruel joke idea was this? It's hardcore man! Maybe just a little TOO real... I have no means of going against this. You're trapped, unless you feel like bumping stuff and going in circles for a while. Might as well make em kill your character, make avoiding them completely a part of the whole deal. But I'm pretty sure this whole situation isn't meant to happen. It just does. It's worth it for the snow/rain in the Volga and Forest areas. They look friggin sick. But these goddamned sandstorms. I feel like Hunter S. Thompson trying to cover that desert race in Fear and Loathing.
maxresdefault.jpg


EDIT: Alright, I'm over it now. When I was freeing the slaves on the OTHER split ship, I shot the juggernaut guy in the nuts with 9 incendiary rounds immediately upon entering the door. Well, I shot him once, and then I paused to think for a second before rapidly popping 8 more in. It was great. The nu-metal action music came on, he started to stand up from his throne as I brought them down... and then "Oouagh!" as he fell down curled up in flames. As he lies there burning, the music abruptly stops. All is quiet, save for the gentle whistle of moisture escaping from burning flesh. Peace at last. I'm getting too good at dealing with them. They used to give me so much shit.

@Khonjel i can't play Witcher anymore. This feels like it needs to have its own dedicated thread.
I installed Witcher 3 cuz is aw on YB some heavy modded stuff. And I wanted to add all the graphical improvements mods 4k textures etc etc to see just how good the game can look.
I can't :| No joke....I just can't

Witcher 3 is old. Like old...like something really old.
After playing Valhalla and seeing how amazing a character can move, every single muscle all articulations when climbing or jumping ....Geralt is stiff. Like stiff as made of wood and so is Roach the horse. When he is fighting he moves no muscles, the animations look old and the hitbox is messed up, his hits don't even connect to the enemies he's hitting in the air...everything about the game is old. Facial animation when characters are talking...what facial animation they are all made of wood.

Witcher 3 plays old, it looks old everything about it is old. Facial animation in Life is Strange is like watching a movie, there is almost...almost 90% no difference. The same can be said about Valhalla.

I don't know what will happen when they will release the remastered Witcher 3 with ray-tracing...but I feel like its gonna be an old old game with ray tracing and that's it.
Ehh I'd say Witcher 3 still holds up nicely. And with mod support, will hold up for years to come. But you should've seen my disappointment after I started Dragon Age Inquisition right after finishing Witcher 3. Ugly models, stiff animation, horse animation like of mechanical bulls, no dodge system unless special moves in each class. DAI feels like at least a decade old game with shiny lighting and polygon count, not a 2014 game. The only thing going for it was the bioware party system and the incredible world and characters.

NFS Hot Pursuit is definitely my favourite racing game because it's just racing and bashing the cops. What could be better?
No frills, no corny storyline, just frantic racing and the remastered version just adds a lick of paint.
I've yet to beat 5:10 yet, so I've got that to look forward to.

That's why I have an XP PC, a Vista Business 64bit PC and a Windows 7 PC. I know everyone can't do that with families and stuff.
It's the FUN part of being retired. You have to do something for fun! I also have about 80 games in the box or on CD/DVD discs.

Currently fighting my way back through Far Cry 1. Messed up the Pic. :banghead:
I played the original Far Cry in December, 2013 and finished it during the same month.
