Hm, from what I've seen on YouTube, combat system is the only thing not selling it to me. The ambient, the music, the atmosphere etc. all look pretty great, but combat just looks boring.


Well you're basically given the option of playing the game in real-time like an action RPG, or using a VATS-like planning system. Both work really well and have their advantages / disadvantages.

I finished Inside in one sitting. Considering I have troubles with ADD that's really saying something. God... in a year with Dark Souls 3, Doom, and many other great games, this might actually end up being my GOTY.


It's a great game. I'm not sure how I feel about people losing their minds over it calling it one of the best games they've ever played when they have absolutely 0 clue on what's going on. That's so 'prisoner of the moment' to me

Bought Necropolis. Spent half an hour getting it to work (doesn't work with Razer headphones), finally played it. It was awful. I refunded it.

The main problem is the combat. It's been marketed as a Dark Souls clone, but the combat feels more like an extremely floaty clone of Ocarina of Time instead. Plus their idea of difficulty is throwing 10 enemies at you as opposed to anything that might take brainpower. I'd give it a miss if I were you, or at least wait until there's a sale.


Looks like an Early Access game lol. It looks like the camera auto centers or something everytime you kill a monster? What's up with that?

That's probably why some people think it's the best thing they've ever played. Much like films, the best ones for me are the ones that don't explain everything (or much of anything) and keep you thinking way after it's done. I've thought about Inside quite a lot the past few days. Things that explain everything to death don't really last beyond the time playing / watching it for me. Bit like Dark Souls, eeeeh?

Finally got Witcher III, far more complex than, say Fallout 4. taking me a while longer to get into it as a result, but am enjoying it. knocked out a couple quests, looking forward to returning to see how the results impact things.

damn that errant cart on the side of the rode. that first missing caravan loot quest...

I agree. This is one my girlfriend and I have been talking about since we played it. I've finished it 3 times now, and each it seems I've noticed something new (look at the light on the diorama, for instance). That puzzling over what has happened works especially well in a short game like this, since a playthrough is about an hour long.

Sure. I understand that. I have no issue with ambiguity. It's just that at the end of it all I was like "that's it?". I expected more but at the same time didn't consider the $20 a waste of money.

Hope you got ample spare time. That game is a doozy. Took me 180hrs for vanilla and 2nd PT 227 hours with both DLCs. Would be ~260 if I did all the contracts and cleared all the ? marks.

Get the hidden ending

To be fair, Dark Souls 3's secret ending is like 20 seconds long, if that.

I game an hour or two a night and some time on weekends depending upon social calendar.

the last game i got was Fallout4 (and Far Harbor/Automaton) and made it to level like 101 before moving on.

i played WOW for years, even when i ddin't like the totality of what was going on would focus on an aspect or two i liked.

as a younger dude with a hot computer or ps2 i pissed away probably a ocuple thousand dollars on games, many of which sucked, lost my interest, or were never completed.

now i prefer to get games that will endure and last and keep me entertained for a long while. and Diablo 3 which is great for blaring metal and guzzling booze after a stressful day and when my wife goes to a shie-shie ladies only wine & cheese tasting .

"Evolve" went free to play on steam like a week ago so that's what i've been spending most of my time on lately. Oh and also overwatch. I have no regrets.

Been playing Rainbow Six Siege since it's free on Steam this weekend. I like the game a lot, it's basically what I wish Counter Strike was. It's super tactical, fun, and really tense.

However, the game is really hard to love. To get this game to start I had to turn off UPnP which was annoying. Then I had to deal with fucking Uplay giving me an aneurysm. Seriously, how does it take an hour for my friends to receive a friend request? Not to mention the community can be pretty toxic. I had one dickhead repeatedly kill me and tell me to quit because I was useless... after he blew up the hostage twice.

Despite all of this I can't stop playing. It's pretty good.
