  2. Witcher TV Show

    When one of your favourite gaming franchises releases a TV show and you’re on episode 7 of 8 and hoping it gets better, you know its not as good as it can be. The Witcher series is known for its phenomenal ability to produce episode beautifully orchestrated stories which can standalone is great fables. It has a subtlety in its writing, an effortless main character and a really rustic charm to the entire franchise. I like the TV show but man is it just lost potential for the simple fact that for some weird reason, they’ve dumped down the entire TV show. It can be summed up by the first episode. Gerald has a difficult choice to make between two shady sides. AND OH MY GOD DO THEY LET THE VIEWERS KNOW THAT. Geralt mentions ‘the lesser evil’.. then the mage does.. then Geralt does.. then the woman does.. then geralt does.. then at the end of the fucking episode when we all know geralt picked the wrong side potentially.. my man the fucking mage has to spell it out to us and remind us retarded special needs viewers that he had a choice to make (YES U FUCKING MENTIONED IT 20 MINUTE AGO). Anyway the show is overall visually very pleasing despite them deciding to just cast people that don’t look like the characters in their roles; triss is totally different, yen is now Asian and dandelion is a bit chubby... but whatever. Good show but man it could have been phenomenal.
  3. Steam Sales

    yup steam sales are just so dangerous man
  4. What games are you currently playing?

    rdr2 its sick. not sure if its a good game but its a sick experience of being a cowboy.
  5. Steam Sales

    So I ended up getting (most games I'll probably never play): RDR2 Sekiro A Plague Tale: Innocence (it looks beautiful) Total War Hammer II (cos Henry Cavill plays it) Disco Elysium Valiant Hearts the Great War Half Life Blue Shift Half Life Opposing force Resident Evil 2 The Witcher Tales Tyranny Sayonara Wild Hearts Moss (VR) The Spy who Shrunk Me (VR) Duck Season (VR) Straw Trek Bridge Crew DLC (VR) Gorn (VR) Elven Table Tennis (VR) Pixel Ripped 1989 (VR) Westworld Awakening (VR) Boneworks (VR) Dead Effect 2 (VR) I also GOG'ed: Torment Tides of Numenera Baldurs Gate I Baldurs Gate II Elder Scrolls III Morrowind Pillars of Eternity Pillars of Eternity 2 Dead Fire Vampire the Masquerade Bloodline Overall I feel like I wasted a lot of money. The CRPGs are all down to Planescape Torment and how much I find myself thinking about that game. The VR games are just because I bought a Valve Index so a lot of games without Oculus SDK support I'm now very psyched to play. They're also a decent investment as VR games age really well. A game like Moss is better to play now on the Valve Index than it was on its release on the vive/rift as they scale up incredibly well. I normally wouldn't buy Sekiro as I like to only buy those games when they're old and like 9.99 but the fact I didn't complete DS3 or DS2 proves to me if I don't play games near release, I might never play them as I love to penny pinch in PC games but I'm the first idiot to run out and pre-order whatever Nintendo exclusive is released and prioritise and play that to death. Same applies to RDR2. I bought GTA V like 6 months ago but without the hype struggle to get through it. If I do ever go into the nostalgia realsm of gaming, I rarelty decide on a graphical intensive game and instead seem to have a fetish for older games and they seem to satisfy me a lot more (my most satisfying gaming experience this year was Final Fantasy Tactics, it blew me away). I had a few more games I wanted to buy but I'll re-evaluate in April whether I've actually played many/any of this lot.
  6. What're your favorite videogames from this decade? Off the top of my head; Breath of the Wild Divinity Original Sin 2 Trails in the Sky SC Red Dead Redemption 2 The Witcher 3 Dishonored 2 Skyrim VR God of War Fire Emblem Three houses Dark Souls I feel BOTW is a really easy bet. It revolutionised open world gaming as it made me forget about the mini-map, something which I've always focussed on as opposed to looking at the world around me. DOS 2 was amazing in regards to combat, quest line choice and charm. Trails in the Sky SC follows FC with best in class character development and simple but beautifully woven story. Cold Steel 2 is similar but more anime and on steroids with less class and nuance in storytelling. RDR2 combined narrative with excellent gameplay and graphical fidelity. TW3 has set the bar for side quest quality which I'm not sure will be bettered for a long time. Dishonored 2 is the only FPS which makes me feel like I have true control over my powers and the situations with multiple ways to deal with lots of issues. Skyrim (/VR) was just a beautiful experience and with modding becomes whatever you want it to be. In VR being head to head with a dragon is cool. God of War was a beautifully told story which left me wanting more with well balanced combat on the hardest difficulties but had crap boss battles. Three Houses is a flawed title but is the best tactical RPG re: FE to date. Dark Souls is the game for me which just absorbed me. Best in class boss design, combat and world design I've ever seen. The way they interconnected everything is simply incredible and something I haven't really witnessed in any other video game. What were your favorites from this decade?
  7. I'm tempted to grab this game on sale but honestly my backlog is so freaking huge atm. I just played planescape torment. Still Trails is the king of storytelling videogames for me (planescape is just too bad as a game). FFT is probably the best I've personally experienced for plot. I really liked it and was blindsided on quite a few occasions with where the story went.
  8. What games are you currently playing?

    finished planescape torment story 10 characters 9 diaglouge choices 10 gameplay otherwise 3 graphics 4 If i was to summarise it in one sentance; An excellent story with a beautiful cast of characters in an imaginative setting and excellent dialogue choices; but marred by poor combat, navigation, graphics and gameplay. I don't think the characterisation reached trails in the sky levels which is still holding he bar for me but it was very close.
  9. what are you doing with your life in 2020

    if u want a training program lemme know. i am sure i can get u shredded before april if u have the dedication (u evidently do as u've quit booze).
  10. what are you doing with your life in 2020

    nah i dont think i have a following to comfortably do it. i think the effort:money ratio will be shit for me atm my streams of revenue are: 1. medical work (salary job at hosp) 2. botox + lip fillers + medical aesthetics (4-8x treatment a week) 3. 2x commercial properties rent / week i wanna get: 4. 1-2x properties non-commercial rent (a flat in town and a house would be perfect) 5. somethingoutsideofmedicineandproperty aka modelling agency or photography business or semi precious stone jewellery and try and market is via instagram celebs or i'd love to do a VR gaming/tech youtube channel. i did toy with trying to invest in my friends band but i found out really quickly they have talent but literally zero direction or intiative so i think it'd be quite akin to throwing money away. and they just have no business sense whatsoever which is sad or a gym related clothing brand which focusses on shirts based on countrie's identiies i was planning to eventually take over my parents business too but sadly i have not learnt the skill base for their work so it'll probably be easier for them to just sell it off in the next couple of years now as they wanna retire. i think realistically im not gonna attain any of this except for the house and maybe a cheap flat which i will give to my sister for a year to live in. i just dont have the energy i used to have. my biggest regret os the 2005-2020 is not getting onto the youtube money-train. I'd LOVE to buy a factory unit, set it up as a film studio, buy in some camera equipment and film some fun as fuck pod casts/gaming shows/ vr gaming shows etc. also not trying to get into the gym related clothing game earlier (i wanted to do it in 2010 but i was distracted by uni).
  11. What games are you currently playing?

    i might buy this on ur recc. just not sure if i should play tactics ogre before it first. i played it for like 5 mins and just think i will love it.
  12. What games are you currently playing?

    im playing planescape torment. on one hand i really love the quality of the dialogue. on another i fucking hate the gameplay, navigation and how unclear it is on what to do in specific circumstances and the illusion of choice (when i goggle theres only one path towards some major plot related objectives involving shitty side quest related missions).
  13. what are you doing with your life in 2020

    buy a new house (wanna do this before the end of Q2) find a potential wife to aim to start a family in 2-4 years get shredded again before end of Q1 get a new form of monthly income on top of what i have atm
  14. What games are you currently playing?

    fe three houses madenning was sick. dropped gta v, idk why, it was good finished lone echo 6/10, lonely and simple and shit imo started boneworks on the index and it is phenomenal. best tutorial of any game ever.
