it might be a good game for all i know but you can't name your art game "ethereal", man. that's embarrassingly pretentious

self-important, one word INCEPTION-esque titles need to go in general, but calling your art game fucking ethereal is setting some kind of precedent

i've decided to marry santa. apparently he has 500,000 in the bank and is maxed out on parenting, baking and handiness, so he'll make a good stay at home dad. also my sim is pregnant again. she spent a lot of time at the observatory and now has the option to get pregnant with an alien, but she's having another of santa's babies. im curious to see what kind of mods there are for nonbinary characters (i know it will allow you to crossdress your sims standard in create-a-sim but i wonder how it works with children)

Cthulhu goes post-apocalyptic in Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones
“As a team we grew up playing games like Fallout, Baldur’s Gate, and Planescape Torment,” says Oral, ”and we wanted to recreate that kind of experience.”

Throughout the story we follow the enigmatic clues and footsteps left by a mysteriously shrouded figure called the Dismal Man. After experiencing a nightmare in the opening tutorial, I retrace the Dismal Man’s steps to find a key glinting on the ground. Asking around town points me toward Schmidt’s Antiques, and its key-obsessed merchant, Isidore.

Isidore’s offers to buy the key, raising the price in cigs—Arkham’s currency, like a prison, is cigarettes—until they reach 1000. At this point I actually have the option of selling the key, which Oral tells me leads to a gameover state.

“We give the player the right to abandon the main quest,” says Oral. “Remember in Choose Your Own Adventure game books, you died a lot! We have that element in our game.”

arguably poor game design decisions = my shit

yeah this is how i hate to play games. in fact it's what i despise most about mmos, what i THOUGHT they would be like when they first came out and what they are like now are two completely different things and they did not go the way i expected it. And i think BDO is meant to be a math game a lot (well i don't know all rpgs seem like math games to me now). I just chose to ignore it a little. Like this is supposed to be a PVP game in the end game really (well that's what people say....probably because they like to limit themselves) and i've never fought anyone (well the very few times i get attacked i flee or let them kill me) but yesterday i tried some arena mode and i was just slaughtered every second, two hits and i'd be dead and i was like...yeah no fuck this shit, i don't even understand how pvpv fights are even suppose to work.

The thing is despite playing he game in an unusual way, i still managed to have a pretty high gear score (yet by refusing to enhance anything, i bought my stuff already enhanced on marketplace for ridiculously high prices) and i'm high level and i'm at least master in all lifeskills almost so people want to recruit me in their guilds all the time and i always told then, "i don't do bosses, i don't do pvp" so they wouldn't take me anyway but recently one did and after like two weeks the guildmaster is pming me being like....so...you gonna do anything with guild? We could really use someone with your gear score (i was actually the best geared person in the guild which surprised me tbh, there were like 70 people in it) And i'm like...erm...yeah i guess not, sorry. Bye. And then we agreed to part ways. It's not that i dont want to interact with people in games, its just that i don't want to do it like games want me to do it.

Like i would like in an mmorpg to have my little house somewhere (this game allows it and to furnish it too, i have to post pics of my house some time, i furnished it with such care...) and just like....make things for people. I don't know. Weapons. Armors, food, potions. And this game DOES let you do all this, there's like god knows how many alchemy recipes, or food recipes, and all kinds of gears to make for everything and everyone, like thousands of things you could decide to make and sell and have to source materials for, but the selling aspect (and sometimes building if you use workshops) is too abstract, like then like in every mmo you go and sell it on the MP to faceless strangers. I just want to have a stand somewhere instead where people come and ask me what i got. See that would be ROLEPLAYING. I mean basically i guess my issues is even in games, your characters all have the internet. Marketplaces shouldn't exist in mmorpgs. Well not unless they are physical and the goods are too (well you know what i mean....obviously its all data, but i mean i don't want them to just be text in menus)

What they call Role playing in mmos is also very far from my idea of it and i want nothing to do with it. From what i can see nowadays in RP channels it's just mostly people role playing flirting with/fucking one another. VG Nerd culture has really let me down.

I make sure to never take pics where there's any monsters...I have no combat pics of this game in all my like 500 pics i took since i started playing. But god knows most of the maps are loaded with them. There are 964 different types of monsters/enemies/animals for you to kill in this game (well some of those are inanimate things to destroy) overall this game is a slaughter fest in a month of playing you'll probably kill 50 000 npcs at least...and that's probably a low estimate, game tells me i've killed 36 000 in the last month and half or so and i spend most of my playtime in the game NOT killing enemies... Also, out of towns, not many friendly npcs, and in the desert region even players are almost absent, nobody goes to that part of the map or barely, it's one of those games that makes expansions that become kind of useless once you've done all the quests/gathered all the stuff in it. Well there's grind spots but otherwise that's about it.

Anyway to continue, probably the least interesting sequence of pics i have of the region



when at last i made it past the canyon i came to a small farmland and i took the time to rest next to sp,e nice tree, there beyond finally laid the black desert. Which wasn't black at all. But then again maybe it was just a trick of the light.

Image



right below the farmland, Sand Grain Bazaar, doesnt look like much from above, isn't actuallty much

Image


I took a pic of this little area of it as you can purchase these houses that are IN A CAVE!!! if you SOMEHOW feel like living at the edge of a desert in a place where there's no marketplace. Not to mention the houses are tiny and have no windows save for the front tiny one. But they're houses in a cave which is neat.

Image

Image

Anyway, disappointed with sand grain bazaar i purchased a camel and braved the desert...

Pretty soon i was dehydrated and hallucinating sunburst guitars in the sky and feeling like it was the 70's and also i couldn't remember my name, cause i was in the desert (where you can't), but despite my declining mental and physical state i have to admit the sight of endless sand dunes was quite......well it was boring, its just a fucking desert what did you expect. It's just sand, which i hate because it's coarse and it gets everywhere, it's just a dumb long desert and it's totally not black and it sucks and it's just there to piss you off, like all deserts ever. It was then that i became fully aware that this game was quite stupidly named as it is named after a desert which is not black amd in which there's pretty much nothing interesting to do at all and that wasn't in the original korean release of the game (it was a later expansion) and that as far as i know has no real relevance to the plot of the game. It's like if you'd named Zelda like..Lake Hylia or something. Tht's without mentoning..why Online? There's never been a Black Desert NOT online game. So just call your game Black Desert. They didn't put the online in Elder Scrolls Online for fun. It's to tell you it's an Elder scrolls game that's a MMO (well it's also not really an elder scrolls game).

Image


I went further in enough to take a pic with my camel (yes i normally rode it but somehow i have no pics of that, you can ride your horse in the desert (the game doesn't allow you to ride any horse with no name though) but it can't sprint. However I found the camel sprint to be about as fast as a non sprinting horse so i'm not sure what's the point and so i never bothered with the camel again....well i guess it can jump, which the horse can't in a desert but being that it's a desert.....why would you need to jump? (i lie a little there's some rocky sections on the outskirts but still)

Image

I then decided to turn back around and make my way towards THE MYTHICAL DESERT CITY of Valencia city by going around the desert instead of through it. Which yeah, you can except it's a much longer way but it's also visually a lot more interesting (i'm skipping from my narration here all the countless quests i did at every turn, or the myriad of enemies slaughtered, though in the desert even enemies are scarce).

I hear you, I often have the same romantic visions of what games could/should be, and have visions of travelling and exploring and living beyond what the developers intended. I also don't do math, min maxing in games, I love monster hunter like broodstar but I play the game completely different from him

I have also now officially spent more time in the Discovery Tour mode of Assasin's Creed Origins than in the campaign, just traveling around Egypt and standing in the spots where you interact with npcs, like miming haggling in front of a vegetable stand

Does seem to me like Breath of the Wild would be your perfect game for these kinds of adventures though. At least among offline games.

Imagine turning on your battery powered radio after the apocalypse, searching the airwaves for any sign of humanity, and through the snow and noise a faint voice finally comes in and it says "my sim is now pregnant with her third child by santa"

Might be a gameplay spoiler, but I just played a short game with that ASD mod: I wanted to roll a sad incel-type who's obsessed with vampires. Gave him Dork, Slob, and ASD because I wanted him to be awkward in all public and social situations and I only had one free trait slot.

It was fine at first, but if his needs weren't met immediately he'd fly into a really emotional fit, which made him a pariah whenever he wasn't alone and meant I had to drop everything to bring him back to calm. And turns out your sims can die from emotional trauma. At some point the dude was arguing on the Internet in his den, threw a dramatic fit over something, had a heart attack on the spot and died. Death came (who uses a tablet now, v. progressive), the whole bit. Dude never did meet a vampire.

My next family will probably move into his house to see if they can meet his ghost and bring him back to life.
