Am I crazy for thinking Fall Out 5 looks kinda fun? I haven't really played a Fall Out before so if it's just more of the same that's not really an issue for me

Are you talking about Fallout 76? Would love a Fallout 5 but FO76 is not that, and if you’re new to the series FO76 is absolutely not the place to start imo.

New Vegas and FO3 were my personal faves. FO4 was fun enough. Haven’t played the first two, but FO76 is a mess. No NPCs or meaningful story, with ample glitching and really bad attacking system.

FO76 will be free to play soon enough so I’d just recommend waiting a bit for that.

New Vegas is one of the best games ever tho.

Oh haha. I thought Far Cry 5 was fun, even if the main bad guy is annoying. My favorite in the series was Far Cry 3. Cool island setting and fun insane bad guy. You can probably get it cheap. Looks like $20 on Steam. Probably a decent place to start, since Far Cry 5 is still full price but probably due for a decrease at some point.

I only paid for the floor in this house. Which was like 3$ or something. I don't remember. Everything else isn't what they call pearl items, pearl items are stuff you by with real money. Now people can and DO sometimes put pearl items on the market but i don't even bother because the odds you'll win it are slim. Or were until last week because now they've overhauled the way the market works completely so it's not luck anymore but just how fucking rich you are (i have some billions but...i'm not really rich). But anyway. I have one pearl costume with my wizard and i DID win it at the market. A lucky thing. It was the one i wanted most too and it gives you an exp boost so...that was good. I paid for a few things in this game but not much. I bought a pet once. I think i bought a weight....how do you say..not expansion but anyway, it makes it so you can carry more weight. I'm not sure if i've bought anything else. I feel like i have but forgot what now. Oh yeah back when i was dumb and played the stupid dye roulette game..trying to get colors i could use...the worst money sink in this game, to color your outfits like you want they basically force you to get a value pack which is basically a sub. Otherwise you have to hope you're gonna get repeatedly unbelievably lucky. Well to be fair, i wanted the rarest colors in the game pretty much, red and black.... If shitty mint green or puke brown or blinding pruple was my thing i'd have been fine.

anyway, MORE BDO PICS cause it's all i do with my life now it seems. It's just i tried the remastered mode (graphics overhaul, allegedly) again and they've improved it since they put it in game like 6 months ago, it looked like absolute garbage then, so bright and bloomy you could almost go blind looking at the paved streets in cities (i'm not kidding). It's still not that terrific as soon as you get anywhere where there's a lot of shadows, in fact i had to tweak the setting for a few of these pics, but it's still an improvement and so these pics WILL look better than those i normally post. A lot of bucol here. My sorceress is not wearing sorceressy outfits here, in some it's a lifeskill outfit (gathering) and the other is a free outfit you can earn in game but its soldiersy and doesn't fit the class (in fact that sword is for show).

I'm only an hour or two into metro exodus and I kinda forget what I liked about these games. I guess I enjoyed hearing the dialogue in Russian and trying to pick out the words I knew. For some reason the only way to switch audio languages is to do it in the first main menu, so I played most of the first night in English, which is pretty funny. At one point tyoma's wife says "let's catch some air" when she means let's go outside a second.

There's also an apparently american member of your crew named Sam who sounds like one of the same 5 male voice actors in video games (Vegeta, Matthew Mercer, the other three guys). He doesn't do the Russian accent like everyone else while language is set to English, so I'm curious if when I switch it over to Russian he'll speak american Russian.

my time in Metro got completely upended by the delight that the Yakuza series remains to be. I can't stop playing Kiwami. Damn good PC port.

Metro Exodus is good, i love the stealth and the open areas but it still has odd game design choices along the way and some of the more linear sections feel really dated

Decided to check out the ea access trial for anthem. What a hot mess. I have yet to play a mission with a different mechanic than go find these orbs and put them in a basket. The flight seems fun enough but overheating is a terrible mechanic to throw in

Jason Schreier caused some waves by replying "yes" to a resetera thread that asked if we'll ever get a demon souls remaster. Now people are assuming blue point is working on it.

Yeah, I’ve been playing anthem and it is just not very good. Combat is fun, the “caster” suit is pretty fun and very powerful, but the overheating flight is really annoying. The city parts are absolute shit, just dull first person where you walk so so slowly. The British guy who talks to your character during missions (which is such a ridiculous cliche at this point) is incredibly annoying. The missions have nothing interesting about them, the implementation of them all being multiplayer completely derails any aspect of immersive storytelling. It’s very disappointing. BioWare should just remaster kotor imo

well shit. that makes a lot of sense. let's hope they don't fuck up the aesthetic

then again when they announced their next project a year ago as being "orders of magnitude more complex than the shadow of the colossus remake" or whatever they said exactly, demon's souls isn't the first thing that comes to mind. at the time lots of people expected they were rebuilding the metal gear remasters the way they rebuilt sotc. hmm

yeah, i guess it's probably demon's souls. there really aren't a lot of other possibilities unless they're remaking mgs2 and mgs3, which they'd probably screw up aesthetically, or mgs4 which they might actually improve. let's hope they've taken to heart some of the fallout from shadow of the colossus and do demon's souls right

I've been enjoying how BR games actually made "full loot on death" an option in large scale pvp

I'm still waiting for full loot MMOs with short server durations, but even optimistically it'll be at least a few years

Honestly a full fledged MGS remake, any in the series, is way too lofty for current Konami to seriously bank roll. Not sure what, besides wishful thinking, would even have it in top most likely projects.

bluepoint would be footing some of that bill, though. maybe a lot of it. probably demon's souls, though

I wonder if Dark Souls 2 would be funner on the Switch. DS1 didn't hit me on the PS3 but then I loved it on the Switch
