Aha, fair enough. Though I think you're missing out. There's no game quite like it. I'm sure you'll get to it one day.
Mass Effect series is probably a better bet for you though. Not a difficult series by a long shot, and more about the epic story and choices you make throughout the game. Gameplay is really solid, well, it is after the first game, where it's a little iffy, though it does have the best story to it and the most RPG elements, as well as planetary exploration. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
At any rate it's the only two franchises in recent times that drew me in to the point I forgot how to interact with real people after playing them, and probably lost a lot of weight and sleep from how immersive they were.


Yeah I'll get to it. It's just that I've been weaned off gaming for so long. I don't want to spend days looking for something good to play. It's like when you go back home after a long holiday. You can already imagine that the poop you're going to have will be the most comfortable ever. I'm not looking for difficulty right now. Although I don't want to breeze through the game either. I almost never finish games, but that's because I get too sad when I finish them. So yeah Mass Effect. Much obliged!

Bloodborne DLC. Bloody hard. 2 levels below the recommended level but I don't think that makes much of a difference. Feel like i'm playing Souls for the first time. Also there's some genius design near the beginning of the level that is either a nearly impossible situation or a fairly easy one depending on how you approach it. Haven't reached a boss yet *gulp*

I watched a play through of it. Certainly does look hard. Also looked a little boring too; rehashed environments taken from the original game, generally kind of bland looking until the latter third etc.

Bosses will probably give you hassle going from what I saw. The first and last one looked cool (and hard).

Nope. At the 3rd boss. Her attacks in the 2nd phase are awkward so i'm struggling timing my dodges.

Yep very classy. Areas are a standout for me (so far). Tracing the layout of area 1 to the main game is fun. Area 2 is very atmospheric and very detailed. I play the game with the brightness on 0 on both the game and monitor. The darkest areas are basically pitch black and require a torch. Enhances my experience. Boss 2 area is beautiful with a Demon's vibe. So little for me to complain about so far.

BLOODBORNE DLC SPOILERS BELOW WOOP

FINITO. They knocked it outta the park for the most part. I think the most fascinating aspect of this DLC is how distributed the difficulty is. There is no unanimous decision on the hardest boss unlike Dark Souls where basically everyone goes with Ornsmough. I spent so long on Laurence I know how many hairs he has. Around 7-10 hours over the course of 3 days was spent on him to be somewhat precise.(His final legless form where he slam crawls towards you is the biggest load of steaming lump of bullshit i got so salty i wanted to cry.) I'm sure you'll find a comment saying someone beat him in 5 attempts. I didn't spend that long on Orphan of Kos but I know someone who's spent hours on him. DSP legit quit the game because he couldn't get passed Ludwig. That's the beauty of this expansion I think. It's more akin to AotA which is how it should be. Mobs are tough too. The giant shark guys with the harpoons are such a pain and fighting 2 of them at once is just pure evil. I'm sure some areas that I struggled with would be easier with a weapon that easily staggers like Ludwig's Blade but I digress. All 5 weapons that I tried were really cool. Maria's weapon has a cool spin to win attack. All 3 areas were fully realised I'd say. Will find a lot of sneaky item placements and ways to make enemy engagements easier. Their scrupulous efforts in enemy placement and synergy have not gone unnoticed. It's also really heavy on the lore (and quite fascinating I might add). Oh and the OST is magnifique! I love how the songs hype the fuck up when you reach the later forms of the bosses..it's like two songs in one. I hope they keep doing that. It gives a sense of tension, stress and in some cases urgency in these difficult fights. Shame on you for selling your PS4 (I think?). I don't know how to paragraph.

It's good they ramped up the difficulty. Bloodborne, in retrospect, was far too easy, especially regarding bosses. The only one time it was hard was when it was unfair.

I still think the general artstyle and feel was pretty drab though so I won't be rushing out to get another PS4 any time soon =P Maybe when the remastered Demon's Souls comes out I'll grab it and have a Soulsfest.

I might Youtube the boss OSTs now though.

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

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 say the remaster drops end of 2016/early 2017. It would be fitting to conclude the Souls era with what started it all.

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...

ahhh yes Witcher 1. One of my fav games ever despite it's many drawbacks. Chapter 4 of that game is one of the best chapters/acts/sections/etc ever imo. Hope you have fun! ^.^
