I bought the New Vegas complete/deluxe or whatever off a Steam sale, finally. I tried 3 back in the day, got bored in the first half an hour after the tutorial. But I love the idea of the setting and I did have a reasonably good time the original (until the clunky gameplay put me off - gotta try Fallout 2 some day), so I am hopeful the more RP-oriented New Vegas will captivate me.

I realised now the reason I might not have actually completed it was because of the bugs. Have run into a few though thankfully nothing game breaking yet.

In other news, as much as I hate the framerate war talk in modern consoles etc. this is pretty appalling. PS4 struggling to keep it above 20fps in some areas. I could forgive Ocarina of Time running at that but in this day and age is not really forgiveable (not that I care about Assassin's Creed though).

Ubisoft is the biggest joke of a company. I hope one day someone calls me out on pirating and dubs me as the catalyst for the ruination of the modern gaming industry (you know they're out there) so I can just retort by saying how they're the problem for constantly paying for incomplete, dumbed down(from trailers) garbage.

I've been playing some games from my childhood time like DOOM II or Diablo II or Commandos and Road Rash and Neverhood and Desperados: Dead Or Alive all very great games in my opinion and playing Counter Strike 1.6 online it still feels good

But that's just not true in MY case. I've bought tons of games that I've already finished through pirating; you're just gonna have to take my word for it. My money will go to companies that deserve it. Conversely, i'm not gonna give companies money that don't deserve it. This is why I don't participate in early Access/kickstarter, because 90%+ of the time they renege on their aims/promises. I don't think anyone should have a problem with my order of operations. I think it's completely fair.

Buy a demo? No one should ever have to buy a demo of anything. You can walk into a (good) pub and get a sample of every beer you might want to try, you can go into a record shop and try the music, and you can drive a car from a dealer before putting any money down. If there's not a free demo available then pirating it is perfectly acceptable imo, especially where entities like Ubisoft are concerned. As far as I'm aware there is no free demo for Ass Creed Unity (for PC at least) and seeing as they felt an unscrupulous day 0 embargo was necessary (because it's broken and they knew it) I'm not sure what people are supposed to do to see if they like the game, or can even run it, aside from buy it risk and not getting a refund it they don't like it / it doesn't work.

Also, a person that pirates something has a bigger chance of buying the game than someone who doesn't play it at all. If you don't want people to pirate your game then stop giving people myriad reasons to do so.

If you buy it, then it's not a demo. It's just the first 1/10th of the game you bought for a ridiculously overinflated price. And I'm not buying shit from the modern industry until they give me absolutely irrefutable proof it's worth my money.

Before the industry decided it wants ALL of the money (note: not a lot of money, ALL of the money) for almost no work, a demo was a pretty solid, representative chunk of the entire game being given completely for free. Now it's... well, I don't even know what to call it.

Other than torrenting the game and actually playing it yourself for a while, there's virtually no way for you to inform yourself of its quality pre-purchase. Every single time a publisher or even a developer representative opens his/her stinking mouth, nothing but a ridiculous amount of blatant lies and excuses so flimsy and see-through they should offend anyone with 80+ IQ come out. Professional reviews are bought, 95% of trailers are complete bullcrap that represent the actual game about as much as professional porn represents real sex, Monolith Productions/Warner Bros are paying YouTubers to talk about how Shadow of Mordor is the second coming of Jesus (and I'm willing to bet my testicles it's a trend other huge publishers have already hopped on), developers/publishers are holding huge game features hostage until you either buy the DLC or pre-order (and I think South Park has already stated a fairly obvious truth about it) and this shit is just the tip of the iceberg.

If even despite all this and much more, you're still willing to blindly funnel your cash into the insatiably greedy assholes (Ubisoft, EA, Activison etc.) and just take their word on anything, be my guest. And just remember that every time they fuck someone over, it's partially your fault for financially backing all the incomplete, overhyped and broken trash they put out.

Hey guys, when I said "buy a demo" it was a typo. Buying a demo is abhorrent. If the game doesn't have a demo and you have the self control to just use piracy as a demo go ahead. I personally don't. When I used to pirate, I'd say I was going to buy the game, but since I already "owned" the game I couldn't justify the purchase so never ended up buying it unless it was on a steam sale.

Firstly age does play a factor. Most young teens would never follow up an enjoyable pirated game with the purchase of said game. I'm at an age now where I like to own a copy of a game/CD etc, despite illegally downloading it beforehand. It gives me that sense of satisfaction and happiness of knowing I own a legitimate copy of the product.

Purchasing the product to support the developer is a simple enough justification if you ask me. However you got variables to consider like 'how much did I actually enjoy the game' and 'what my week's salary is' which determine the price you're willing to pay for the product.

I (almost) never buy a game unless it's on a Steam sale anyway. I find games horribly overpriced. *shrug*

On the other hand, once I gave into Steam (and then Humble Store), I started buying a lot of games I never would have bought otherwise, not even because they were cheap but because they were conveniently available. I even bought stuff I had already played pirated copies of. And Morrowind which I only had the original game on a disc, having installed the expansions with a friend's copy as a kid.

It seems that the easier businesses make it for people to buy their products, and the more bang for their buck it seems they're giving to consumers, the more people are willing to spend absolutely. I mean, I could have bought a single expensive game in physical form last year, but I ended up paying twice the amount for countless digital copies half of which I'll never play but I got anyway since they were cheap and easy to grab. Everybody wins I guess.

Did anyone get their hands on Dragon Age: Inquisition yet? I've no idea what to think of it, really. No YouTube video I've seen gives me a clear picture of what to expect. Reviews are generally quite positive, but I've seen a lot of bashing on forums and such as well.

DA:O was bashed, too. And yeah, it was definitely an RP-lite experience compared to the kind of games it is the modern successor to, so obviously some hardcore retro elitists hated it. That ought to be expected with DA:I too.

But no, I have no idea about the new game.

I've watched some DA:I streams and it looks fun. The environment design seems very basic though I might be just nitpicking.

Finished Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl. Way above any Bethesda product i've played. Dozen hours into the sequel and my only complaint so far is the omission of distant creature bellows. It's one of the best set of sound effects ever and i'm gutted it's not in this (modded) game.

Dunno, the more I try to find out about it, the more disappointed I get. I've now seen some German magazines label it "a horrendous single-player MMO" and rate it below 60%.

rpgcodex.com forums are, as can be expected, saying it's the worst thing since the Chernobyl explosions, citing atrocious writing and mind-numbingly boring "hold button to spam attacks" combat. Not that I put a lot of faith in those guys, as they're mostly elitists wearing nostalgia goggles so thick it's a miracle they even know about games being released post-2005, but I've seen videos that do indeed speak in their favor.

They've posted videos where you meet that Sera or Cera or whatever and romance Iron Bull, and it is, bar none, some of the most physically painful, cringe-worthy dialogue I've seen. And the voice-acting, dear god, if you think the Inquisitor sounds bad (regardless of the voice template chosen) on the official trailers, just wait 'till you hear him/her in-game...

They're also saying you'll be doing "fetch 10 sheep meat for the villagers" quests for the first 10-15 hours, so.... yeah, definitively waiting for a cracked version so I can make my own judgment.

Lol ye there's a lot of cringe to be had. I'm all for race crossover homo sex in video games but the iron bull love scene was just bad. The prologue/tutorial is indeed a bunch of fetch quests. I don't really fancy the 'tactical' aspect of the game and other combat /party mechanics. If you like shiny magic attacks and 2 handed spin to win attacks then it's the game for you. I like whirlwind attacks so I might give a cracked version a whirl (pun intended) too if I have some free time before Witcher 3 drops.

Aforementioned love scene if anyone else is curious:

I've been playing through each Final Fantasy game (Original NES and SNES versions. Fan translations in the case of II, III and V) in succession since January, taking little breaks here and there. FF V took a while to clear but now on to one of my favorites of the series, VI.

On the side I've been playing some other games of my childhood. Crash Bandicoot, Rayman and Resident Evil: Directors Cut (on Advanced difficulty as I've never cleared it on that setting before). Also been playing through the main Pokemon series (Cleared Ruby and Sapphire. Currently on FireRed before LeafGreen and Emerald. Then will move onto Gen IV and so on...).

I'm still slugging away at Watch Dogs. Alas no homo border line beastiality which is just disappointing as every game should have it.

New Zelda footage. Looks worryingly open-worldy i.e. lots of empty space. In a few years time every game will be open-world.

Also slow-down arrow shooting mechanics. And tower-highlighting....



Some new No Man's Sky footage too. Still looks dazzling, even if I have no idea what you do in it. Hope they sort that pop-in though.

Well they haven't really said anything to be honest =P They've made some vague references about exploration and being able to name a planet after yourself and that's about as far as they've gone. No one really knows what the aim of the game is as far as I know and what the meat of the gameplay will involve, aside from some dog fighting.

And yeah, SotC's Agro more or less nailed the "don't run off a cliff" thing some time ago.

Probably just complaining unnecessarily, and Zelda will be great. I still haven't even played Skyward Sword yet anyway.

Well they've said it'll have infinite unique worlds. I don't buy that but i'll gladly eat my words because the game does look gorgeous. I hope there's a reaper easter egg :3

Is that a rhetorical question? If not, I dunno. I've heard DA2 is worse than aids.

I would not say so.

Gameplay-wise it is dumbed down compared to DA I, which is, keep in mind, dumbed down compared to its spiritual predecessors, á la Baldur's Gate II and Neverwinter Nights II (and thank god it is, at least DA I feels like a computer game rather than a direct adaptation of p&p RPG, which is something that works pretty badly on PC imo), but I, personally don't play these kind of games for gameplay, but for immersion, so I actually prefer enough depth for me to be able to select ability progression for my character from a wide variety of choices, but not the super serial tactical turn-based combat BS that turned me away from nearly every DnD adaptation except for PS:T.

It is also true, that it was rushed, so most caverns and areas were recycled, which is not good, buuuut, where that game is a massive win is the story department.

DA I was a generic RPG in this regard. You are the mofo hero and you have to save the world from a big-ass dragon, there is political intrigue as well but it is clear who is evil and who is not, there are some interesting characters, but many feel like one-trick ponies to me.
Contrasting to this, you play a character in DA II that is almost an everyman, who is stuck in a world that went completely mad, most of the characters I find to be quite 3-dimensional, interesting and relatable, the game's story is quite deconstructive in its nature, there is no real good and evil here, and as such the socio-political conflict that is at the heart of the game's story is thought-provoking, and hell, I can even defend the lack of effective choice in the game, since it was intended to play out as a tragedy, and that requires an impending doom, and if you could have prevented [SPOILER ALERT]Anders from blowing up the chapel[SPOILER OVER], then that would not have been present.

I'm not saying that it is a perfect game, because the issues outlined above are real but the story itself had me hooked more than DA I's.
