UIs have become a clusterfuck lately because they're among the last things designed in AAA development when they should probably be among the first, at least when it comes to organizing the information. and i guess also because of all the hamhanded progression systems these games throw at you

the last time i checked in was like a prerelease thread a week ago where everything was hosannah

http://opencritic.com/browse?page=0&sor ... &date=2017

seems to join releases like d:os2, cuphead, ys viii, tw:w2, xcom, battle chasers at least, or that may just be my own confirmation bias that q4 is generally more stacked

I loved the first half of Shadow of Mordor where it was just running around fighting orcs and eliminating your nemesis's. The 2nd half where you had to recruit orcs and move them up the ladder felt like glorified inventory management and was tedious as hell.
I lost interest in Shadow of War after the first few videos seemed like they had gone all in on the orc recruiting and made it the focus of the game.

holy shit have you guys seen Duck Season for VR? I'm trying to find some better videos of it, but it's you inside the OG duckhunt game and then it kind of descends in to a horror game where the game is trying to kill you.




edit: this game looks great but takes forever for the horror parts to kick in.

yeah, no biggie tho plenty of time to switch between the two as they both bring very different things to the table. At least that's my plan.

If you can get the original cheap enough it's a lot of fun as is. I'd probably wait for the remake if I didn't already have the original. Actually i have wanted to replay/finish it for a while but then backed off once I heard the remake was coming. It's probably not going to be that much different except up-rezzed spirtes/backgrounds though

I originally played it on an R4 cart and thought all the videos played were really bad because I was playing a pirated version and then got the real game and nope the cutscene videos are just artifacted to hell

I buy physically, so I just go to amazon. You can buy digitally, of course, but it's Nintendo so it's always full price until you get a 10% sale that's still more expensive than the physical cart on Amazon

As soon as we arrived in Andromeda, our shop scraped against some space tendrils, causing us to lose gravity for 10 seconds while eliciting no real reaction from any of the characters

Has anyone played Universal Paperclips? It's a surprisingly deep clicker game. I don't necessarily know if it was "fun" to play, but it was definitely very interesting.

I started playing it but the idea that I had to figure out optimal price and constantly raise or lower the prices I'm selling at undercut the fun for me.

basically keep public interest above 50% until you get the thing that tells you sales per second and then always adjust to be making slightly more than you're selling
