  1. 2017 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    Borrowed CoD:WWII from work. Played through the campaign over 6-7 hours. It's...fine. Not good. Not bad. I prefer the over the top crazy near future stuff that they had been doing, though. This is just a pretty standard Band of Brothers rehash. That can be an effective story, but Call of Duty is probably not where you're going to find nuance. Still playing through (and loving) AC:Origins. Just wanted to actually finish some 2017 stuff before everyone goes into GOTY mode.

    Combat is almost Dark Souls-light. Nowhere near as unforgiving, but I'm dodging around and parrying just as much as I'm going on the offensive. Patience is rewarded.
  3. 2017 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    Haven't seen too much talk about AC:Origins. Makes sense, with the juggernaut of Mario and the Wolfenstein game getting a ton of buzz, but man, I'm having a lot of fun with it. I wouldn't call it a return to form, as I never fell off the AC bandwagon, but it feels like every change they made is for the good of the series. Combat is no longer rote counter kills over and over and even weaker enemies can be a challenge if they gang up. The world is enormous. I'll always be a sucker for loot games, too. At any rate, don't sleep on this one.

    First site I read indicated that I'd need at least one other person to even start the last bit of the quest to get the Drang, as well. Looking further, it looks like it may be able to be done solo. I'll give it a shot, at any rate.
  5. Destiny 2

    A bit of a bummer to me that the end game world quests seem to be geared to multiple players. I feel like every quest I've picked up this weekend requires other people to complete (or, in some cases, even start). I get that the game is largely a MP experience for most, but that's not the case for all. I don't mind mind that I'll likely never do the raid or the Nightfalls, but those are also spun off into their own sections. Being gated from these other quests just sorta sucks... Light is up to 273-275, depending on gear. Have a few more adventures and the quests on Earth and Io to do, but then I'm likely to move on until there's more content. Though I guess I'll pick it up briefly after the weekly resets and to see what Xur has. I'm up to 500+ shards, so I don't have to worry about affording his stuff each week.
  6. Destiny 2

    Put in a few hours today. My first play session where I didn't raise my light level at all. Been stuck on 267. If I get one more Dauntless, I may just have to sell the game. I think I'm on #6 now? The Pyramidion strike is great fun. It's gotta be clear to everyone I get paired with that I'm running the strikes for the first time, though. Everyone immediately pops onto thir sparrow and take off while I'm trying to figure out which direction to go. But hey, I made it through all the laser grids without going down and had to do a few revives, so that was alright.
  7. Destiny 2

    Also active. I'm sosman421 for those who might not be aware. No mic, though, so I generally avoid stuff that requires actual strategy beyond running forward and shooting anything that's shooting at me. I'm up to 257 light as of now.
  8. Destiny 2

    Don't know if I'm just blind or if they're particularly well hidden, but I can't find two of the region chests in Siren's Watch to save my life...
  9. Game Deals and Subscriptions 2017

    Psychonauts is free on Humble for the next day and a half or so.
  10. Destiny 2

    I thought they didn't unlock until you finished the story, but I had one pop from an engram earlier.
  11. Destiny 2

    I think I put in 2000-2500 clan points today. Hoping to spend way more time playing this weekend.
  12. Destiny 2

    I'm now level 15, I think. Haven't seen, heard nor even sniffed a shotgun drop since lvl 3 or so. My kingdom for a shotgun... Edit: Haven't even seen vendors selling any. I think they were patched out of my edition.
  13. 2017 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    I've been playing Agents of Mayhem. I just had to check out the newest Volition joint, regardless of the reviews. It's entirely average in every way. I'm having fun with it, I guess, but it's super repetitive and most of the writing is...poor. I'm lucky to have access to games through work. Had I dropped $60 on this, I'd probably have harsher feelings, but free is the right price.
  14. 2017 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    Auto-collectors will save you there, unless you're growing free range slimes (which is apparently a valid play style?). I finished "Adventure Mode" but still have a bunch to do. Haven't messed with the 5-day challenge mode at all.
  15. 2017 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    There's so much going on in Path of Exile. May have to take a break from playing it to read up on how some of the various systems work. As a fan of the FFX Sphere Grid, the first time I went to spend an upgrade point, I was left a bit slackjawed. So many nodes to fill. At any rate, so far it's a good Diablo-like. I'm a sucker for a good loot game, so I'm likely to pump a lot more time into this.
