The original post

Posted by IronAngel on 27.05.2014 at 16:49
You might want to check Deus Ex: Human Revolution (and of course the original) for some cyberpunk stealth-action-RPG goodness. The gameplay is a little different to Mass Effect but the idea is close enough to make the comparison and say it's a lot better. Fairly good maps that allow for different approaches. It is not as epic and cinematic storywise, and you have no party, but it's pretty solid.

If you can grab the Dragon Age: Origins unlimited pack off a Steam sale, it's some really good party-based RPG adventure with a lot of alternative beginnings and strong companion characters, and combat in real time or in tactical mode. If you like old isometric RPGs, this is probably the best modern game to bring you back to Baldur's Gate days.

It is by far the hardest content they've released and I don't think anyone will argue that.


Watching it I'm not sure it would knock Fume Knight of his perk, but I'm sure I'll find out one day.

Despite the songs being your typical orchestral, meaty, choir filled Souls music I found them quite memorable. I do wish they change it up from time to time. After all, Maiden Astraea's and Gwyn's theme are some of their best!

I don't think I could ever get sick of them tbh =P Laurence, The First Vicar's OST is particular good.

DEM DEMON'S VIBES NOMNOMNOM that boss is cool..it's kinda similar to my concept art..which is annoying actually.

Started Morrowind. I hate Oblivion and Skyrim and people who share those sentiments say Morrowind is godly sooo i'm excited! Went for a Redguard character so I can try out and be proficient with multiple weapons and armour. 2 minutes in and I already had a choice to give back this guy's ring...das more than fallout 4 in it's totality Llululsry

FF7 remake footage. I think how good this is now hinges on how good FF15's combat is, coz that's what it's getting apparently.

Shadow Complex Remastered. I haven't finished it but I've done most of it. Pretty fun metroidvania I'd been wanting to play for a while. Nicely presented, well made and a pretty cheesy story. The design isn't quite Metroid standard though; the item placements are pretty inconsistent. For example the amour pickups, 10 of them: you find one fairly early on, then nothing for about 5 or 6 hours (I reckon the game is 7 / 8 hours long) then you end up finding 5 in the space of about 45 minutes. Another issue I have is how the game artificially blocks off areas you've already partially explored until later in the game. You find an item which lets you explore new places, but you won't necessarily be able to immediately backtrack to use said item on places you found along the way. It's a bit silly really, and as a result you're effectively forced along a slightly linear route. Pretty sure the Metroid and Castlevania games don't limit you in that way. Still an impressive indie game though.

Btw, the game is free on PC till the end of the month. Well worth grabbing: https://www.epicgames.com/shadowcomplex/



Gonna play Axiom Verge now, which I've heard is pretty amazing.

[edit]

Not really liking it tbh.

Bought the new rugby league game from Steam (been waiting 10 years for a new one on PC). Turned it on and found out it only uses controllers, no keyboard. Requested a refund as I can't physically use a game controller. I was really looking forward to this game, too.
Looks like it's back to 2004/5's Rugby League 2.

Shame about the game. But I like the Steam refund policy. I tried it myself after 40 minutes of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Maybe it would have improved later on, but it was so linear and, eh, felt like a game. I guess it's a modern console game thing or something, making no attempts to be immersive. Noticed it with GTA and Assassin's Creed. SotN was great because it was seamless, but this one had like 5-minute missions that you could go back and REPLAY (wtf), interrupted by several minutes' cutscenes and narration.

So I figured that there are better ways to spend my time, asked for a refund and got it within a day. It's a definite service improvement for digital distribution.

Yeah, I got the refund a couple of hours later.
I found the thing saying it requires a controller. It's hidden in the system requirements. Which GTA didn't adapt properly? I haven't got past 4 and it's addons.

I'm glad they implemented some form of refund policy, but the one they have is still pretty shit imo. There are so many games that break after the two hour mark, and in this day and age half the time you don't know whether a patch will come and fix it or not.

Same, the fucking thing is too good. I never appreciated full voice-acting enough until this, it really adds to the atmosphere. Also, Tactician Mode brings a plethora of surprises, I actually have to restart many fights several times in order to find the right approach. Braccus Rex fucked me at least a double-digit amount of times.

Can't wait for D:OS 2.

Okay, pretty old school concept game I'm binge on my PC these days.

Prince Of Persia.

May be it could be average concept for ardent game freaks here but it's awesome when you have to find your way out.

I am usually playing these games on easy, since I care more about the story/immersion than challenging gameplay, but aye, first time I ran into Braccus, now knowing what to expect, I got my party meteor'd into oblivion right in the opening .

What I really dig is that it seems to me companions got fleshed out a lot more. I haven't played the original edition that much, but there they seemed so lacking in personality, compared to companions in similar RPGs (Planescape, Baldur's Gate, KotOR, etc.), whereas now they definitely feel more like actual people.

Morrowind feels like it was developed by mongoloid wombats. The collision detection is egregious, the journal is completely impractical, the cliff divers are the Hitler of video games, most of the NPCs have less personality than a storm drain and the eye twitching undesirability of the heavy RNG based combat is irrefutable proof that there is no god. However, give it a chance and you'll discover a realised, enchanting, hand crafted surreal world full of imagination, wonder and tales to tell. Combine the environmental lunacy with tales such as a naked Nord in the middle of a dusty road and a Daedra with a goal to 'gently fuck your corpse', it's a game just begging to be explored. Completely shits, smudges and smothers the rest of Bethesda's 2002-2014 catalogue. Do recommend if you can handle dated games with design frustrating enough to pop some blood vessels...but most have played it already so whatever...

Bought BF Bad Company 2 off steam just so I don't have to use my Origin version. Game is as brilliant now as it was back then. Truly one of the best (MP) FPS games ever made. Might be the only shooter where I love every map. Truly a paean to map design.

Well my all time favourites were GTA and NFS, so I wasn't really that RPG kind of person. Of course then WoW changed me but still, I didn't really play many RPGs, I am not sure why...
I played Kingdoms of Amalur:Reckoning tho, and it was rather good. ^.^

Never mind the multiplayer. The campaign was one of the last great FPS single players.

Ye I had fun. Very comedic. It's been like 5 years though so I don't remember any lines. You've given me an urge to replay it now lel

Well lets just say if you enjoy the beginning couple hours you should love the game as it only gets better.

Such a shame they never continued the story line on subsequent games. The relationship between the characters was gold. The way they bounced off each other was as good as Trevor, Michael and Franklyn in GTAV. Not been seen since unfortunately.

To be honest, now that I entered chapter II (yeah, I am progressing slowly, not much time to play ), and again am loaded with quest I am not as keen ... But it will change, I know.

Some way through Stasis now. Am quite enjoying it. An isometric sci-fi / horror puzzle point and click, with vibes of Alien, Event Horizon etc. It's very pretty, for an isometric game, and genuinely quite creepy at times. I seem to keep waking up at about 4am the past few days so it seemed like an opportune time to dive into it. Some of the puzzles are a bit silly, and really don't make an awful amount of sense but I've experienced worse. My main gripe is the female character's voice acting. It's horrendous. Intrigued to see where the story goes at any rate.

This War of Mine done. It scratches an area not very often covered in VGs. I think it was fairly successful. A tad repetitive and sometimes it's hard to show sympathy to the characters cause their lamentations are verbally shown with very similar lines. Some choices make you feel like a real degenerate so they got that bit right.

Moved onto Sunless Sea. Lovecraftian, text based, lore/story heavy, 'roguelite'. Fuck it's so slow at the beginning and it takes forever to get going, especially w/o a guide. Once you've died ideally you'd want to look up a guide on how to approach the first couple of hours otherwise you'll be dying constantly and doing the same missions over and over again. That said, the text is creative, imaginative and exposition heavy...but not like MGS exposition heavy where you hardly understand anything. It has some of the best script i've seen in a game in a long time. The artstyle is great too.

Wish isometric games would just banish. Quite arbitrary but I really don't like that POV. Not as bad as full on top down though Just me though HA
