I started this on normal difficulty and I'm a good few hours into this and have hit my "i'm fed up of getting splatted over and over so have put it on easy" threshold. When I started fighting the bigger machines they could just strawberry float me up so quickly, and after dying and doing the same 5 minute run to the geographical chokepoint I had to get past over and over I could feel the urge to quit and uninstall rising. As with other big action rpgs this happens to me sooner or later, we'll see if kicking it down to the absolute bottom difficulty is necessary later on.

Hah! I don't think I'll even wait that long. The saw tooth (or whatever the strawberry float it is called) already had my blood boiling. Such a little bitch kept chasing and killing me after I'd got a few hits in. Eventually beat it with a combination of traps, spear and fire arrows but if this is a taste of what the rest of the game is going to be like, easy beckons.

Yes?

Into The Breach - Also amazing. Got 60 hours out of this one before I'd pretty much done everything. Not much incentive to go back now. Hopefully we'll see FTL-style extra content before too long.

Opus Magnum - Just starting on this one. SpaceChem is one of my all-time favourite games and this seems like it'll be just as much of a head-scratcher and a time sink. The only problem is none of my Steam friends play it so I'm missing that vital competitive element. If you play, please add 'Pilchardo'!


I really liked Into the Breach but as you say, once you finish it there's not really any incentive to carry on other than trying out a different set of mechs.

Also, I think Xeno plays Opus Magnum.

SWBF 2 - Starfighter assault.

Playing this with a mate this evening. I think it's great. Changed my controls to Legacy and found fps mode easier to navigate.

Final Fantasy XV.

I like It, I think, but am I missing something or is the combat gooseberry fool to the point of superfluous? It seems that combat consists of wading in and holding down circle, and you either survive based on your stats or you don't.

It gets better once the battles get tougher, but it never really gets beyond 'distracting.'

Gone Home
I started this the other day after a few people on here were slating it - my interest was piqued. :slol: It'd been in my Steam library for a while so seemed like as good a time as any to give it a shot. I stopped playing after about 10 minutes though - what the hell's going on with the walking speed? It's agonisingly slow. :dread: Literally unplayable. :x

Saints Row The Third
Felt like playing an open-world game and had this sitting on my shelf. Solid shooting so far, the humour's not really my cup of tea, but it's bearable. I never really pay attention to the plot in the Saints Row games either as it's just so..dull, but I enjoyed SR2 so looking forward to spending more time with this.

Still forging my way through the FF XIII trilogy (FF XIII, FF XIII-2 and Lightning Returns FF XIII). Completed FF XIII over the weekend (56 hours!) and 9 hours into FF XIII-2. All on PC. Enjoying the hell out of it. The music has captivated me so much I was driven to seeking out the OST for all three games. I also managed to track down and purchase official strategy guides for all three games at rock-bottom prices via Amazon (FF XIII-2 hardback collector's edition (brand new and sealed) for £8.99! It's gorgeous.). Can't tell you how much they assist with navigating the most expeditious route through the games.

I'm starting to think this trilogy might actually be very close to the top of my most enjoyable gaming experiences ever.

Glad to hear you're enjoying them Cal. I'm sure someone will be along soon to tell you how wrong you are, but I think the FFXIII games get an unfair rep. Anyway, I look forward to your thoughts on Lightning Returns.

I'm on disc 3 of Final Fantasy VII.

This is still a great game despite the visuals being dated. I really love the materia system. Currently grinding 2x cut materia in the magic pot zone of the North Cave.

I will hopefully get that to birth another, then I will go and do a few side quests and finish the game. Can't be arsed breeding the chocobos for Knights of the Round.

Only 10 years late to the party, but started playing MGS4 for the first time. I'm a big MGS fan and a big stealth fan, always aim to do things undetected and without killing where necessary. Almost at the end of Act I and so far it's just been a bloodbath. Don't know what's wrong with me.

I really want to re-play FFVII. I never actually completed it, despite putting 70-odd hours into it when I was a teenager. I think I got to a boss that I couldn't beat and kinda gave up. What format are you playing on?

Tacoma - Been trying out games in my Steam Library that I didn't think my old PC could handle (Though to be fair it probably could have played this perfectly fine) and I'd totally forgotten about this game. I was a huge fan of Gone Home, so Tacoma had been one that I'd been looking forward to at the time. Anyway I'm about 90 minutes into it and I'm enjoying the "AR" components of the game. Being able to watch the various interactions and events that the AI on the station recorded is pretty cool, especially being able to move around and follow different peoples stories. Looking forward to going back to it tonight.

Check out some of our stuff!

Steam version. I seem to remember putting an absurd amount into the PS1 version, I haven't even hit 30 hours and I'm at the final zone. I am really surprised how quick I've been progressing.

I loved FFXIII. Mostly for Lightning and the battle system. The story was eh, whatever, and the world, while gorgeous, was linear as gooseberry fool. But it was a damn good JRPG. XII-2 and LR were too low budget for my liking tho. I couldn't take to them at all.

The battle system was pretty great. That's why I finished it. Really didn't like the story and most of the characters.

It was weirdly compelling to me. Like, I agree with most of the criticism it got, but it kept me playing to end, so it must have been doing something right. It's nowhere near the best FF game for me, but it's decent enough.

Never got on with XII-2. It felt really disjointed and kind of like a cash in.

I'm about halfway through Sleeping Dogs. After what I thought was a slow beginning, it keeps getting better and better.

Horizon:Zero Dawn
The traversal is a bit archaic after playing Zelda and Assassin's Creed recently but actually having a story and some world world building makes it well worth it. It's quite difficult compared to other open world games but after levelling up and buying some new outfits and weapons I'm getting to grips with it. Loving it so far.

God of War
I wasn't going to bother with the Valkyrie's but I really like this game and I keep getting the urge to go back.

Fortnite
Somehow I'm getting worse at this, just getting a kill feels like an achievement now

Cod:WW2
Still enjoying it but I'm getting bored of the weapons now, looking forward to a modern setting again
