Very aesthetic game. A little clunky at times but a good 10-20 hours (I finished it in 13 and did some completionist stuff that wasn't necessary).

If VR and guns are your thing, Pavlov Shack is pretty fun. it's basically oldschool CS:Source for VR.

I just got EYE:Divine Cybermancy, because i read about it and heard it was similar to Deus Ex. Wanted to know if anyone else has played it.

E.Y.E. is a gem. The best description of the gameplay I've heard was "Serious Sam from an alternate universe where Deus Ex was a worldwide bestseller and every FPS dev decided to put RPG elements into their game whether they fit or not." There are stats and levels, but they don't really affect the game as much as it might seem at first. Stealth and hacking are options, but neither are fleshed out very well and you'll most likely end up having to blast your way through the map anyways.
What I really liked about E.Y.E. was how offbeat and enjoyably weird everything was - the level design, the dialogue, the story, the unlockable powers, even the way character progression works was original. It's passion project made by a group of people who weren't very experienced, but managed to create something incredibly original because they either didn't know how to do things "the right way" or just didn't care. In my opinion, that's what indie games are all about.

that one is a trip. I'm not sure if I'd compare it to Deus Ex though. Way more shooting.

How are the BF3 servers these days? I used to be addicted to 24/7 Noshar Canal TDM back in the glory days on Xbox 360
There's a good bit of populated servers in Europe. And a handful in the USA. Not a lot of completely full games but still enough to have a good time.

Operation Metro is still very popular.

Really makes me miss the glory days though. And with how bad BF2042 is, those glory days probably ain't coming back.

Been playing Hypnospace outlaw, just wish there was more mods for it or like a free play mode and they that they would support the page builder for macView attachment 26640
Never heard of it and just watched the trailer.Looks very intriguing, immediately wishlisted it!



I got the sudden urge to play Wind Waker again. I started this game 2 times but never finished it. Once back when it was farily new, I burrowed a GC and the game from a friend just to play it but I had to give it back before I could finish it and then years later the HD remake on my ex gf's WiiU. But for some reason I also never finished it there.
So I just downloaded CEMU and in one long session did the first dungeons until I got the master sword. Just sailing around and exploring is so much fun (as soon as I got the Swift Sail that is). It definitely aged well because I'm having a very good time.
Comparing it to BotW I kinda miss the classic item system now.
Also combat somehow feels more dynamic in this age old game than in BotW. Hit feedback is great, you have very long combo strings on your sword and can even change it up mid combo depending on where your left stick is pointing and the evade counters feel more satisfying than BotWs bullet time flurry of attacks.

Don't get me wrong, I loved BotW but I get the feeling that it won't be as replayable as their traditional formula. I expect BotW2 to fix many QoL aspects and just generally improve on the new formula to a point where BotW will become a worse, prototype BotW2.

I've been playing the Mass Effect trilogy, it's such a comfy series to replay.
replayed 5-6 times at this point and just reading this is making my brain twinge because of some sort of uncurable parasite, i must go back. i don't even want to make different choices. shepard, unchanged face, earthborn, warhero, soldier, tali, no one dead, destroy ending

I was playing the Chrono Cross remaster during the week but I stopped and went back to play Trigger simultaneously. The game itself is excellent, it's just a really shitty port and not worth $20. Download a good PSX emulator and play it that way instead.

This afternoon I watched the girl I'm seeing play Life is Strange: True Colors (she's into those sorts of games). The dialog and character animations are downright awful but the graphics are alright at least.

After what must've been a decade, I am now getting back into Minecraft.
Called in sick since monday since I got hit by some kind of flu (not 'Rona apparently) last week and I'm slowly recovering and MC seemed like a good, low attention needed game.
I am surprised by how much is new, I basically need the wiki open all the time to check out what all that new stuff is.
