Shadow of War is just so damn good.

Glad I missed the MTX drama cause this game is like heroin.

Patient Gamers untie!

i don't even know what drama you are talking about and i got the game on launch day, I agree shadow of war and mordor are 10/10

brothers a tale of two sons and diablo iv major update just hit PC Game Pass, so that's what I am playing.

pc game pass is lit right now... so many games on there I want to play, honestly not bad for 10 bucks a month, if it cost any higher though i probably wouldn't do it.

I would even say that PC Game Pass is the best thing which have happened to me as a gamer :> Sounds like classic advert, but in fact GP have made me trying games I would never buy due to them being "not my type" and typical return times being discouraging to me - way too short to get to know many games. That's how GP has made my "gaming life" so much variable, fresher and playing only games giving those higher levels of fun. It ofc leads to more misses than hits, but it's just trying again with next. Game Pass is also great with including, so presenting me good games I have never heard of.

Now I finish Hogwart, but next stop will be GP-included Grounded as Obsidian game, so always worth a try or Resident Evil 2 to see why people were some much into few years ago.

P2W microtransactions, and the accompanying extreme grind if you didn't use them. They did later patch it out and it mostly affected the endgame, which a lot players never reach.

Now I got more beefed up to beat the last boss of FF VIII (few levels and all abilities unsealed).

I can't understand why this is now so problematic, usually I beat her at first try.

edit: aaand it's done. Also improved my strategy and it seemed to work.

This thing is weirdly integrated into existing English league system. Three logos are made by me personally, the others are AI generated + polished in photo editors. Some screenshots are outdated.

It's still WIP, I'm making the Championship equivalent, also gonna make it independent from England (yohoho! The 4th of July ahoy!)

V Rising is so goddamn good I don't know where to begin. Once you're past the first area the game really opens up and I still feel like I'm in tutorial, kinda, so many new things keep happening and adding to the experience. Some of them very minute and easy to miss, others shake up the whole dynamic of the game.

Everything just works, too. I've done some pretty cheesy and MMO'ey shit and it all functions as you would expect, different factions will fight each other for example, and you can literally kite bosses towards each other to get a huge advantage on the kill. Of both, if you're lucky, too. I managed to nuke a boss 7 levels above me that way yesterday. Glorious stuff. The game is also perfectly soloable, to the point that you wonder whether co-op is even the basic way to play. Bosses enrage. Bosses suddenly whip out an extremely powerful attack at a certain % of health. Their patterns change. Its got Elden Ring quality combat right there. Its one surprise after another. Nothing is boring or truly repetitive, even the samey Militia Camps almost always have some sort of easter egg.

The game just spoils you all the time with cool things. At some point I had to go into a whole new area even though I'm still in Act 2 casually exploring farmlands, and suddenly find myself in between none other than Dracula's minions, succubi and all, patrolling a true-to-the-movies wintery landscape. Oh, but wait, there's not just a boss here. This is a whole new region, introducing its own specific type of vendor (after already finding a new one in farmlands), its own set of environmental/gameplay tweaks, a massively more powerful team of mobs to run into... It has that Valheim quality that way, but because V Rising isn't randomly generated, it all just clicks perfectly, all the time.

I don't really care about achievements but lol seems I'm ahead of the curve here a little bit

And so it begins....again.

Loved this so much on my PS4 Pro that I had no hesitation in picking up a copy on PC. Nice to see it runs well on modest hardware. When I've finished playing through Dave The Diver (fantastic fun by the way) and then Dredge I'll be sure to continue GoT.

Diablo IV this weekend, binging the entire campaign for the first time since its on game pass and I have a month of game pass free. :D
I honestly liked level 1-50. I took it slow and reached 50 just as I was finishing the story line.

I played solo and had/have no interest in the endgame grind. If there's one thing I hate is doing the same thing over and over again. If I want that, I'll log into work.

It's been almost a year and I have the itch to play the story again, with maybe a Necromancer this time. I had to play the Rogue first play-through as that was my D1 fav.

Couldn't agree more I was around 55 when I finished the story on my druid IIRC then I hit endgame and was like.....no thanks.

Yet somehow I can still play D2R and grind for hours on end. i just cant bring myself to do it in D4. Probably just nostalgia.

I am only interested in stories too, variety is the spice of life.

Necromancer got a big buff with this update they just released May 14th... just an fyi. The loot system is entirely different now too apparently. I am excited to play this :D

I'm the exact opposite, I've played the story once and then I only play the game for the end game/max level content.:oops:
ARPGs/looter shooters are all about end game/high level gameplay for me and the story is secondary. 'I do pay attention to the story and read everything but only once maybe twice, its not why I play the genre'
Idk I just love to build some crazy ass char/build that can wipe an entire screen of enemies and deal billions of damage. 'this is why I have 1k+ hours in Borderlands 3 too, those end game builds are stupid fun'
Needless to say I'm also playing D4 Season 4 atm with a newly buffed/changed Frozen Orb Sorc. 'iconic skill, loved it since D2 so I couldn't pass on it:)'
Might make a minion/summon Necro too since its crazy strong now and Necros are one of my favs.


Still yet to finish Forbidden West btw, that thing is gonna take me 100+ hours from the look of it since I'm already at 70+ and I still got bunch of stuff to do and the entire DLC after..
Next week its also Hellblade 2 which I'm gonna play on day 1 on game pass since I've loved the first game/finished it 2 times. 'Wuthering Waves is also relasing next week and I'm interested in that so now I have my hands full of games as usual :laugh:'

Very cool games everyone are playing; some I've loved myself, others I'd forgotten about and/or didn't think would be my thing (and may have to reconsider), but...

...Am I the only one that partook in Stellar Blade around these parts? Feels kinda lonely. I wanted to praise it while going on wildly divergent (but arguably pertinent) tangents for a whole thread page. :(

I know most of ya'll are almost-exclusively PC, and I appreciate that, but still. I had all kinds of weird history to share in our experience!

No idea what perspective other people playing this game have other than booty, and most people think it looks like "Final Fantasy...May Cry" and that's kinda-sorta half-accurate, but there's more to it than that.

Do I really have to wait until it comes to PC for recollection to/with people about folksinging and late-millennial ballads (that's selling her extremely short, but to many that's their point of reference)?

Perhaps it was just not meant to be...but you should still consider giving it a go if you think you might like it, or even if you don't, as it's quite the trip.

Also, you know, audience reception is pretty good, if you care about associating numbers with art. I leave that to the true professionals (like IGN :p), but you do you.

Very cool games everyone are playing; some I've loved myself, others I'd forgotten about and/or didn't think would be my thing (and may have to reconsider), but...

...Am I the only one that partook in Stellar Blade around these parts? Feels kinda lonely. I wanted to praise it while going on wildly divergent (but arguably pertinent) tangents for a whole thread page. :(

I would love to play Stellar Blade but I only own a PC so yeh gotta wait.. 'I am playing their other cultured mobile/gacha game for 1.5 years now so naturally I was interested in Stellar Blade and actually followed it since the Project Eve announcement when it was listed as a PC game so yeh..'

As soon as I get paid I am picking this up. 2024 is truly a great year for PC Gaming. Once a week I do a Helldivers2 Mission and it is rewarding. This looks like something that will bring me back into historical Games as TWWH3 is my current kryptonite.
