  1. I'm mid way through ME3 and agree, it's much better than I remember. The opening and the Palavan mission are pretty shit, but there's much fun to be had after that, despite a lot of cheese and a bit of jank. Tech explosions just don't get old, I'll even put up with Vega because Carnage is so amusing. Never did the Citadel dlc either, looking forward to it!
  2. Loved this, amazed it's got such short shrift on here. Sure, there's some tropage, but I felt the atmosphere and performances were compelling. Good soundtrack from Tindersticks guy too. I'm becoming a Pattinson fanboi though. This, The Lighthouse and Good Time are all great performances.
  3. Agree on the original Nexus, amazing mix of peaceful and unsettling. DS2 hub area was nice, but the Rural Juror Emerald Herald was a letdown, along with the rest of the game. Bloodborne's was the only story I really engaged with/could penetrate, with the DLC drawing it all together beautifully. Maria best boss.
  4. I haven't followed the thread closely, but dipped in and out and picked up a few good tips. One I wish I'd followed is 'keep a notebook'. Sounds like a cool idea, I thought, but did I? Did I fuck, and now I'm hopelessly muddled about what I've done, what still needs doing, who asked me to do it, etc etc. I love the open world, but temperamentally sometimes I feel I'm more suited to the linear structure of the previous games. One other observation: I wonder if I'll regret not having to work very hard for the bosses so far. Wolf gank pack + npc summons + overlevelled has equalled some guilty easy wins. Maybe it won't feel complete without an Amelia-type roadblock I have to really knuckle down to beat - maybe the game's giving me too many options to pussy out. Perhaps I'll live to regret the sentiment though. I kinda hope it'll really test me at some point.
  5. Is there 1 or 2 in that list you'd recommend for someone unfamiliar with the genre in its modern form?
  6. This Wiper post from a few pages back had me scratching my head. The notion of getting my brain around some of this stuff is not unappealing, but it's a level of knowledge and giving-a-fuck that's never been a part of gaming for me. PC gaming seems strangely jerry-built and cobbled together at times, like this complex arrangement of barely related parts held together with chewing gum. In other news, here in the colonies (Aus) we are excluded from the pre-order thing, so it might be 2030 before we see one. I love handheld gaming for the family harmony aspect mentioned above, so this appeals to me.
  7. No doubt you're right, but I've always wished Mass Effect would allow the option to leave my squad behind and take on a mission solo. Sometimes I just don't feel like company. I just did the one in ME2 where you pick your way around a derelict spacecraft as it teeters on a ridge. Very basic mission, but I enjoyed the brief loneliness. I have just recruited Jack though.
  8. I wouldn't argue with much of that. I did the Prothean orb thing just last night, it was a curious little interlude. 'The monkey doesn't have the module' x50, not so much. Like you I'm headed for a completionist run, simultaneously enjoying it and questioning whether I'm best using my limited time on this real planet.
  9. As Mogster says above, mixing it up makes for the most satisfying roleplaying experience. You never know quite what you're going to get obviously, but she's rarely just stroppy with the renegade responses, and some of the best moments in the game come from those 'unlocked' dialogue responses. So yes, put some points in! My Shepard is respectful to friends and allies, but takes no shit from the galaxy's many fools and timewasters. I'm a little bit in love with her.
  10. Nothing wrong with a good vanilla ice cream.
  11. Evetta Muradasilova, who is the Maiden in Black in Demon's and the Doll in Bloodborne. I could listen to her read the FT
  12. I'll be that guy and tell you that Jacek Rozenek who does Polish-language Geralt is fantastic.
  13. Quitting Sekiro is a blow to your self-esteem at the time, but by the weekend you'll be

    Silent protagonist of your creation vs cheesy Bill is a significant upgrade imo. If creating your own avatar is important to you it'll make all the difference to your level of investment in the game.
  15. She was chosen in a fan ballot. As we know, democracy doesn't work, and neither did the new default femshep. Expanded character creation is exciting though, hopefully the one from the second game rather than the weird ME3 creator.
