    Deus Ex (2000)

    Deus Ex was my first immersive sim and blew me away. There's a bit (I think maybe Paris, it's been a while) where you read one of the public news terminals scattered around and there was a bulletin for my arrest that used my real name. A pretty basic trick for sure, but one of many details that made you feel as though you weren't exploring sequential levels in a videogame but moving through a world of different characters and agendas that didn't stop with you. That's pretty much why I love videogames these days, always chasing that feeling of being transported to an other place. I
  2. One particular allegation of CDPR 'pandering to the alt right' seemed to be based on a random screenshot of some non affiliated right wing knuckledraggers commenting ideological cringe on twitter. I'd argue this is awarding these incel dorks an undeserving credibility of influence. CDPR are not nazis are they, at worst they come across as ignorant of trans issues. Many people in our society are. They can be won over to supporting trans rights with reasoned argument and honest education not tedious culture warring. Cancelling an unreleased videogame they might like the look of isn't going to wi
  3. Stop bumping this thread until it's officially announced you fiends
  4. Zaeed was originally going to be played by the actor who portrays Dev but he had to pull out at the last minute after his wife accidentally poked him in the eye with one of those small plastic mechanical sharks on a stick
  5. The Broken Knives sequel does mix things up in fairness. It's not a retread of the first book. I've got the third but haven't read it so can't comment on what happens there. I've started reading Abercrombie's new one The Trouble With Peace. I like it so far, I think he's the most readable of all the contemporary fantasy authors.
  6. The time capsule for his grandkids one was pretty poignant I thought. I love how multifaceted the character has become spread across all these different media formats. It's insane how detailed Partridge lore has become.
  7. It feels like I should play CK2 for hundreds more hours than the hundreds of hours I've already played it for and get my money's worth before dipping into a new one. It does look incredible though.
  8. I've tried to buy the Babylon 5 boxset a few times in HMV but the price seems to go up by a tenner whenever I see it.
  9. I'm watching DS9 for the first time ever, bar maybe one or two episodes shown on the bbc during the 90s. Bit good init? I love the cosmopolitan feel of the promenade. And all the characters are enjoyable, there's no overly annoying bellendcentric episodes. It feels like any combination of the characters could go on an away mission through the wormhole somewhere and I'd glean enjoyment from whatever scenario they end up in the midst of. I'm towards the end of the second series, kinda buzzing I've got another 5 to go.
  10. I for one hope those weren't shoggoths

    No, it turned out to be a glorified Watchmen cosplay convention with almost zero effort put in to actually adapt any of it into a coherent film. Visual motifs such as the embrace between the news vendor & comic reader were just that, empty visual motifs from the source inserted shorn of any context or emotional investment with the characters. The ridiculous ultra violence was cringey adolescent bullshit, Rorschach without his mask was indistinguishable from Rorschach with his mask, the changed ending makes absolutely no sense. The icing on the cake was them rechristening the Minutemen 'The
  12. I've been playing it for a few years. Just had a big update that's added a lot of new stuff. I played a little bit of it in beta but have yet to properly dig in to the new content. It's a terrific game that oozes atmosphere. There's nothing quite like it. It's worth playing with permadeath off and saving enabled until you get your sea legs. It can be a frustrating experience at first. I personally don't mind the OG UI, the whole game can be played with a few keyboard presses. I do accept that the UI and controller updates are vital steps on the path to full release and the fabled
  13. I think this is really good. Beautiful open world, swordfighting feels fun. What's not to love? The core loop is compelling enough for me.
  14. I looked through this whole thread to see if this had been posted. Because it's the correct answer.

    Desperados 3

    I desperately want to get this but still haven't touched Shadow Tactics. I've made a promise to myself to at least give that a bash before picking this up.
