cheh,

 

I am surprised this Sea of Thieves game has any kind of buzz or apparent success going on... I was thinking surely it would bomb harder than Wrinkle in Time, man... every time I saw any kind of preview clips it looked like pure unwiped asscrack.  The graphics do appear to be a bit better now at least, but I'll still pass on that nonsense.

 

haha I'll bet a certain friend bought that shit... dude has always had highly questionable taste in everything :lol:  (he's one of the people that tried to sell me on "Dead Block" a few years ago...one of the most atrocious-looking Live Arcade games in the 360's history.... I still remember looking up footage of that game on youtube and laughing hysterically for a LONG ass time at how awful it looked.)

It has buzz because it's all Xbox got when it comes to exclusives. Xbox fans are hungry for anything. For all the betas the game had it still had a terrible launch on day one. Servers were a mess.

Anyone plays FFXIV? how's Eureka?

Not gonna lie it's a grind BUT~~ it's an easy as fuck grind. Basically kill mobs to spawn fates, kill fate bosses to gain loads of exp and crystals, get to level 18-20 and kill the main boss Pazuzu to get feathers. If you die and don't get rez'd within 10 minutes you lose a level. It took my GF about 3 days to get 2 Eureka Relics.

Never under estimate the power of pirate ship gimmick games. Everyone wants to be thier own Jonny Depp

I'd rather be a stretchy, rubber future King of the Pirates than Johnny "Amber Heard stole my money and my soul" Depp...

Eh. Mobile gaming. Every year or so I get the thought of seeing what games might be out. And after looking at some bus simulators and pubg, seemed a good idea. I mean PUGB is free unlike consoles, and there are no bus sims for console.

 

But of course no controller works for any of this stuff. So whats the point? Personally I can't get enthralled enough with phone factor to get any use. I don't play games with phone type controls, and I dont even type, I wont respond in forums or facebook on phone. This brings home my previous thought that I can get away with a low tier phone. If I can't play on  pad, it's pretty useless.

@MillionX or anyone else, have ya'll played the new Ni No Kuni yet?

 

Jrpg with non-turnbased combat  and supposedly good story.   Probably about to cop it now since I forgot to preorder it.

From what I am seeing is that they play completely differently.    Not even sure how much the stories are connected.

y'know, it did manage to catch my attention recently....and yes it's because they've fixed that unfortunate turn-based "condition" the first one was afflicted with.  It does have a nice look/style to it, so it is possible I may give it a shot one day soon.... 

 

..but that is if I could ever tear myself away from the great Bayonetta 1 & 2 combo though.  That has been all I've played since it hit Switch a few weeks ago.... quick thing--- definitely hit the vidcap/record feature whenever you fight Grace & Glory...unless of course that duo consistently kicks your ass... but man... anytime you fight them successfully, taking few or no hits at all... it always looks like some pro-level combo-vid shit.  I absolutely love it.  That's the fascinating thing with Bayonetta, imo.... I don't think it takes that much for the player to look godlike in that game....but that's definitely not to say that the game takes it easy on ya, especially with the Grace/Glory fights.  Easy to do cool-looking, godlike skillful shit....yet still has difficulty.... It's a contradiction that people probably only understand when they play it for themselves. (edit--it would be nice if Switch's vidcapture had the same deeper level of options the X1 has; on Switch you can only record the last 30 seconds)

 

then there's Y's Lacrima or whatever it's called coming soon...then it won't be long until VAMPYR (*June 5; words can't even describe my hype levels of THAT shit)!!!!

Yeah I am not sure if I have any faith in a company who's only games are Remember Me and Life is Strange @MillionX

nah, in the gameplay footage I've seen, VAMPYR is looking good so far...it's your average action 3rd person view combat, which is good enough, imo.  The theme and concept of the game is the real selling point for me.   It also looks like they got the general vampire lore "correct" in this game.   I've been wanting even a halfway decent vampire game for many years now.  Sheeeeit, I've wanted a cool vampire game to play ever since I was a little kid.  Skyrim has been the only good thing on that front in recent years.  The big one people bring up is Vampire the Masquerade, but that shit is from way back in 2004 (*and only on PC... I definitely wasn't caring about PC gaming back then).  Other than that I had Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain back in the original Playstation days, but that's about it.

I'll never play life is strange. A couple bisexual chicks I know Jack that game off so hard because of the girls being lesbians or whatever to the point that it annoys the shit out of me. I refuse to play it out of spite. You know how when Zoo talks about his indies so much that you don't wanna play it? It's like that

Can't speak to Life is Strange but I enjoyed Remember Me. It was a unique experience. That's harder to come by these days.

ohoooo shit I just noticed RARE made Sea of Thieves apparently... once again, MS....how's that decision to purchase that company working out for ya these days? :lol:   Really, bruh... game looks like one of those EGM April Fools jokes.

 

It's also amusing to me that they have to lean extra hard on this shit, because they either missed out on so many exclusives or just straight up cancelled the other things.  Another layer of the comedy here is that this era could've been much, much worse if they went ahead with the original X1 plan from that disastrous E3 initial showing.

That's too bad.  It may not be the BEST adventure game out there, but it's really quite good!


Maybe one day you'll be able to give it a shot.

I got the first episode of Life is Strange for free a few years back from Humble Bundle. If I get the desire to play adventure games again I'll try it.

It's got fun characters and nice graphics.  Gameplay is good if you like team-based games where everyone has unique abilities.  If you like traditional deathmatch-style shooters you probably won't like it.

It does have a death match mode though. Not every character is viable in it.

 

Do people even still play Destiny 2? Two of my co-workers were hardcore stans for that series, preordered and everything. Haven't seen them play it in about 3 months now

There wasn't enough content to keep me interested past the initial month or two.  You end up doing the same runs over and over again, and unlike other loot-based games the equipment doesn't get any stronger.  Once you get the look you want for your char there's really no point to playing.
