Ah I see, yeah - it remains limited, textures etc, I would like try it because there's so many things I would like to try differently in Deus Ex. I really appreciated Black Mesa, didn't try HL2 cinematic, but looks very interesting.

Yes, another try at Deus Ex wouldn't be a bad idea, took me 3 times as I posted above.. totally hated it the first time, but it became seriously one of my favourite games now.

A part from those and since we're talking about remakes, Grim Fandango's remake is already out, and I also heard the same company will also remaster Days of the Tentacle.. I hope they really improve it because I tried to get into the original but couldn't.. apparently a gem in adventure games.

I played Grim Fandango back in the day. I quite enjoyed it but didn't finish it as I suck at point and click games. I think the original Secret of Monkey Island is the only one I ever finished.

Black Mesa I don't think I ever finished either. Good visual update but I recall there was an issue with the game's jumping mechanic whereby Gordon didn't jump as high as he should. I imagine it's been patched now though. The HL2 cinematic mod is great; I've seen modern triple As that look worse than it. Shame the developer went mental and hyper-sexualised Alyx.

But yeah, another stab at Deus Ex perhaps. I'm currently making my way through Final Fantasy Type-0 right now, which is probably the best thing from the series in a decade.

Deus Ex is definitely worth it. Its level design is often as good as Thief's and its setting as atmospheric as System Shock 2's. I think those three games are pretty much the quintessential classic first-person games on the PC. Combat is pretty clunky and it takes a while to really get rolling (though I do think Liberty Island is a great map), but the ride is ultimately satisfying, your choices matter and the game doesn't hold your hand too much (though it isn't terribly difficult, either - System Shock 2 was better at making every level-up choice matter).

I also picked it up for PS3 to so I could play couch so me and my girlfriend would have something to play. I gotta say, I enjoy it more on console than I did on PC. It's far more challenging - especially the boss fights. The addition of rolling adds a lot to the experience.

Apart from that though, I've gone back to playing the original Bayonetta because it's batshit insane and I don't own a Wii-U, Metal Gear Solid 3 because it's been far too long since I played that, and Skate 3, because that game is stillm stupidly fun and number 4 had better come out sometime soon.

Spent a few hours now on Darkest Dungeon. I love the artstyle, the dialogue and the voice acting (mostly) and it game has enormous potential as a fun and deep roguelike, but in its current state it's way too unbalanced. Trying to contend with the whole stress thing makes it impossible to really penetrate. Seasoned fighters apparently flip out whenever they have to move some rocks without a shovel, or even simply walking down a corridor, and before you know it you've an entire party of cowering, whimpering peons (yet watching a party member die doesn't even phase them? What?) and stress-healing abilities are totally pointless. Add to that the percentage-to-hit ration is worse than X-COM's. We're talking 1 hit out of 4 or 5 for a 60% chance to hit, 1 in 2 (ish) from 80% chance to hit (compared to the enemies' attacks which hit much more often), and the difficulty and cost of maintaining your character's stress out of battle, not least when you find one of your fighters has conflicting issues and can't de-stress in village, which means putting more money into having said issues removed. The majority of looting attempts end up in afflicting your party with something;, bookcases usually stress you out, graves always inflict blight etc. and you get nothing from these as a result. At the moment I'm basically conscripting new parties every time, sending them into dungeons, getting what resources and money I can then escaping and dismissing them and putting the money and resources toward upgrading the village and slowly building a party that can finish a basic short dungeon with any kind of assurance other than blind luck. Great potential, but at the moment a little tedious and frustrating and difficult in the wrong way. The difficulty could be offset by making it so it's not a massive grind and making everything so expensive (1200 gold to visit the pub? 1500 to pray? Really?) Hopefully the game will become a little more manageable a bit later on.

I'm enjoying it regardless though. It's compelling enough to keep me coming back in the hope of actually achieving something.

Hahaha and I just opened this thread to post something about Darkest Dungeon... seems like it's quite unbalanced from what you say. As I am not interested at all in trying "early access" games, I'll patiently wait until they balance it up. I really have high hopes for it too.


In other news, Ultima Underworld 2's official sequel is getting a kickstarter as I write this... *cries*

If they balance it up! Fairly sure they will a little but this is one of those games predicated on being rock hard, so the devs might feel too much pride in that regard and insist that it's supposed to be this way. It doesn't feel like an early-access game though. More like a well-polished Beta (which is better than some fully released triple AAAs these days).

it's a great deal of rock 'em sock 'em fun... and also fits the secondary requirement of a game, zero internet connectivity required. can't play a game of FIFA15 without it disconnecting, so shit like Destiny or whatever are right out for me.

I guess you're playing it on a decent size tv. On a monitor they took up way too much space. If you want Resident Evil action you should probably look into the HD re-master of the remake of the original game *breath* (was originally a Gamecube game but they ported it to the new consoles).

Actually my TV is small but obviously much bigger than a computer screen.

They redid the original? Wow. Did they capture the vibe including brilliantly awful dialogue ("You were almost a Jill sandwich")?

It's a very faithful and pretty remake, though the dialogue was re-done it seems. On the PC version I think there's a way to patch in the original dialogue though.

Shame about the dialoge being remade though it does look very faithful to the original. Nothing has ever matched the first two Resident Evil games in terms of horror experience (though Silent Hill was good).

Yeah ages ago on the Gamecube (which can be picked up for under £5 second hand still compare to the full priced HD remaster). I never completed it but they redesigned bits of it in a faithful and beneficial way, such as the snake fight. They also introduced reviving zombies so you have to burn them as you go, which makes the game much harder as fuel was pretty scarce if I recall.

Hey guys, did you know that we who post on this thread are unwashed basement-dwellers who dabble in oppressing women and rape? I know because Law and Order: Special Victims Unit told me, and a lot of mainstream media seems to agree!

Can't see the video, but I can't say I'm surprised. At the moment in France, a series of TV spots advertising a hotline dedicated to troubled teenagers is running on the main channels, those watched by your average French person. Topics adressed: drugs, alcohol, violence and video games. All on the same level.
It's a cycle: now that they're done with movies, anime and music as minions of Satan, they go back to video games.

Oh well, the episode is called "Intimidation Game" if you're interested in watching the most hilarious unintentional parody I've seen in a while. This is what happens when you let Jack Thompson write TV scripts.

Also, for added hilarity, the same gaming "journalists" who've spent months and months calling their readers sub-human, racist, homophobic and misogynistic scum are now flipping out when a show portrays their readers as such. You can't make this shit up.

As time goes on, I'm getting more and more confirmation that game development business is a huge magnet for the most shameless, spineless wimps on this side of the Milky Way.

So apparently, some guy completed Order 1886 in 5 hours and documented that roughly half the game-time is taken by unskippable cutscenes. When people rightly started flipping shit over it, this happened:

The most infuriating bit of all of that is that the cutscenes are allegedly unskippable. I don't care how cinematic you want the experience to be. In this day and age if you have unskippable cutscenes you should go swim in lava. Lets say it was 5 hours long. I don't care how good your story is. I don't care if it manages to put Spec Ops: The Line's story to shame. 5 hour game with what seems to be with as near as makes no difference, no replayability for $60 US, $100 AUD is pathetic value for money. Not many people consider that much money as disposable. So lets hope it was just a speedrun and that game is infact double that...AND good.
