Yup you're right of course, for some reason I keep thinking Village is 7 while writing these posts. I think 'the FPS RE' and they lump together. I never actually played 7 though. Is it as bad as Village? If it is I might as well skip it.

7 is NOWHERE near as bad as Village. 7 is pretty lowkey for the first half and doesn't do anything as crazy as the first 3 games. It's mainly solving puzzles in a house while avoiding the stalker enemy. Sure one of the characters turns into an abomination but that's a Resident Evil staple going back to the OG games. There are no literal witches, vampires, werewolves or magic lightning wizards. The second half of the game goes more shooty bang bang with tar monsters but again, nothing bad. Village is a radically different game compared to 7 in all of the worst ways.

Tried playing scott pilgrim vs the world game.
Turns out it requires a Ubisoft acount, has denovo, and is always online even to play single player.

Didn't know any of this when I bought it so tried to get a refund.
Steam said no because it had been more then 14 days since I bought it.
Whatever, uninstalled and gave it a bad review.
Now I have to use antivirus to scrape denovo out of the root of my system again.

I last played this when they added Italy. it's really cool to see them add in most of Europe now. Being able to drive from the far north of Scotland all the way down to Istanbul or soon Greece will be a hell of a road trip. It's a very comfy game to just drive in.

I was driving around Madrid with a double trailer truck and ended up in a frontal collision with another vehicle on a U turn. It was an incredibly narrow two-way street and I had to use both lanes. Holy shit. I was going at 15km/h so it wouldn't be fatal but it certainly ruined the comfy ride I was having.

Started this recently. I enjoyed playing xenogears so I figured I'd give it a try. Didn't see it being praised as much as the other entries but still wanted to give it a go since it looked interesting. I'm 6hrs in and there's a lot of cutscenes, way more than I anticipated, but since I'm enjoying the characters and the story I'll keep pushing. Maybe someone that played the trilogy here can give some insight on if it's worth playing all of them or if I should just skip to xenoblade already.

It was less of a pissy fit and more of the publisher wanted to change the terms of the contract retroactively and they said no.

Anyway, they eventually worked out a deal years later (which were basically the original terms the publisher agreed to, lol) and re-released it on PC and later consoles.
That publisher being Ubisoft, they added drm to the gills, require 3 fucking accounts to access the game, and is always online and can be pulled from my library any time the company feels like it.
What a shitty company and shitty industry practice.

I guess I have to check steam DB before buying anything to check for this bullshit. Because it's not obvious in the store.

If watching cute pokemon creatures perform manual labor while you play discount minecraft is worth 30 or so dollars, then yeah. I personally think the knock off pokemon are super cute, but I'm just not into the survival crafting genre at all. It's still early access too, so as it is right now I would say it's not worth it. But if they fixed the bugs and optimized it and add what they said they will, then yeah it will be worth it then.

Steam only shows those notices to people who it is legally required to. Some governments penalize dishonest business practices such as not being clear about the DRM. If you've not convinced VALVe that you're from one of these places, they won't bother to tell you anything. The only way DRM can endure if it's done quietly, so VALVe, Ubisoft, EA etc all try paint over it until you've already made the purchase. Anyone adverse to having the license to borrow a downloaded copy of a game revoked on the whim of a multi-billion dollar company, should not be using Steam at all. At the core of the User Agreement lies gobbledegook explaining how VALVe can do anything to your account or library for any reason without disclosing any reasoning for their actions. And you must agree to this EULA every time it updates.

There is absolutely no reason to buy from Steam if the game is available elsewhere. If it's a singleplayer game and you want to directly support the developer, pirate the game and send the money to them some other way. A lot of small devs are only on Steam because of the Greenlight process, which may allow their game yo g up for sale but nonetheless results in a significant cut of sales be sent to VALVe, as well as some additional restrictions such as VALVe de-listing your game and holding your profits if someone involved in the development ends up posting a wrongthink on Facebook. There are safer, more profitable alternatives to Steam.

Finished both Fear and Hunger and Fear and Hunger 2. Pretty good games overall. Not perfect by any means and they do have some utterly God awful design decisions. Can't say I was too big of a fan of how so many mechanics simply weren't explained or alluded to even remotely in the game however, so you had to simply guess and possibly fuck yourself over or just look things up online. Something compounded even more due to the nature of how saves work and that they are so limited or could straight up end your run thanks to a 50/50 chance of anal rape. I tried to avoid spoiling myself as much as possible but I'll admit I was frustrated a number of times and did myself dirty a little bit towards the end as I simply wanted it done with.

Between the two games, Termina was certainly my favourite. Difficult at first but the moment you get the Meat Grinder and a couple of good items, the game becomes very trivial. However I did make a termina-l mistake and take a look at the community around the games and to my absolute lack of surprise, it is truly awful. The "trans" representation in the form of one of the characters seems to have acted like a bat signal to the worst people who have thoroughly infected every facet of the games community and made every conversation and theory revolve around whether a character is comfortable with their assigned gender. It's definitely gross and I despise those freaks.

Overall I'd give both games a tentative 7/10. They fill a nice little niche in the gaming market and the overall world and lore is intriguing. Obnoxious design decisions both help and hinder in equal measure so it's a matter of patience for how much of it you can stand before you get tired. Or simply look things up and make the games trivial and, thusly breaking the very thing that make them stand out. I am looking forward to a third game if it happens. For similar albeit vastly superior games of the style I'd recommend Darkwood.

CS2 had a decent content update and added in my favorite match type besides deathmatch, arms race.

Also upgraded the Zeus to make it rechargeable instead of disposable (don't care) and did a bunch of patches. Plus new skins and stickers (also don't care).

The two "new" maps for arms race are pretty good but I wish they were available in death match too.

Overall I am enjoying the update.

Tried out this game called Combat Master.

It's basically a low budget version of COD only free, low spec friendly, and takes less than 2 gigs hard-drive space.
I am legitimately having a lot of fun with it. I normally play mainly tactical shooters but I forgot how fun more casual arcady shooters like COD are.
Not even close to perfect but since its free, works, and the core gameplay is solid I am happy recomending it.

It's more fun than any mobile game I have playedor seen.
Controls work good on pc.

The devs made it to function well on low spec pc for the internal market. So it probably influenced the looks since mobile games use the same tricks to run on phones.

Hell, my only complaint so far is that the payed skins are ugly compared to the ones you get by grinding for them with weapon xp for free by just playing the game with a weapon you already like.

Oh and so far their are only two kill streak rewards and no mini map. So no radar or uav. Just minigun and nuke.

I'm playing Dragon's Crown with my brother and it's funny how they managed to get what is essentially a simple arcade with arcade gameplay and make it incredibly convoluted with unnecessary plot, side characters, a map and leveling up different skills and whatnot. It feels too much for what it boils down to being a beat'em up, despite all the game's effort to hide that fact. It hurts the pacing a lot imo but it's still an OK experience. Artwork is incredibly ugly though, everyone look rather hideous.

I watched about 6 hours of livestreams of this game from new players and those who are top rank and in-the-know with 'the meta'. Every second of it looked the exact same. It plays like freaking Cookie Clicker. Our average racing game offers more environmental differences, challenges, and new gameplay elements than HellDivers II

what exactly is this meta? from my experience this is what i use

laser gun
smg pistol
50% survive death medium armor
laser backback drone strategem
autocannon sentry strategem
rocket sentry strategem
railcannon weapon strategem

no one really uses anything i do aside from the lazer drone backpack, because it's completely busted and you'd be dumb to not use it. you can run away completely disengaged from combat and still be killing things, do terminal stuff/activate hellbomb and have it guard you from little guys. kill missions are different and everyone just brings turrets and mortars usually which is really the only sensible way to beat those

I bought the Umihara Kawase trilogy on steam, playing the first game, the grappling hook mechanic is kinda weird, but it's great once you get used to it. I like the sprites but the backgrounds are so ugly

I love this series. I've played every game. It's funny, I don't mind the gameplay that much. I do enjoy it but what makes this game endearing to me is the atmosphere and music. It's interesting how the relaxed environment contrasts with the brutal difficulty sometimes, there are incredibly challenging levels in all of the games. The first one you're playing now is one of my favorites. The 3D ones and the newest entry Umihara Kawase Fresh lost a little bit of the magic imo but I still had a lot of fun with them. I hope you're enjoying it!

I quite like the pixelated photos they use for the backgrounds, maybe it's an acquired taste or something. I remember finding it a rather odd artistic decision but grew to like it.

Seven

Never heard of it but seen it on deep discount in my feed so looked it up.
The stealth action gameplay reminded me of MGS1 so I bought it.
So far I enjoy the stealth, dislike the looting and menus, mildly annoyed by the controls, and keep on dying falling off things because judging depth is difficult from the top down perspective.
Combat sucks ass, but I was attracted to the game for the stealth so I will largely avoid combat as much as I can until I have overpowered gear.

I think I should probably switch over to using a controller to play this game, but I will give kb+m a bit longer to see if I can get used to the goofy controls.

Started playing Kenshi. I bought this on a whim after seeing it and thinking it looks interesting. I'm not sure it's gonna do it for me though. It seems like a huge grindfest and the controls are aids. Having no quests or objective kind of sucks so far because I still don't know shit about how anything works or what I should do and I'm also weak as fuck. There are a shit ton of bandits too. Harvesting their stuff after they die is extremely tedious. The gameplay in general seems tedious. This is after just a few hours though. I hope I will eventually get to the point where it becomes fun.

Did not notice the chain steering wheel on slamvan despite playing since 2011 and completing all (minus the last few ones that require you to take over the gang turfs) main story missions 30-35 times (5-7 times including end of the line).

After finishing Defense Grid I decided to try the second game, Defense Grid 2 but it plays so incredibly similar to the first I think I'll drop it for now. I might be quitting too soon since I've only played the first couple of levels but the towers are exactly the same and everything looks pretty much as the first game. It's basically the same title but with more narration (which I don't like) and updated graphics.

Hopped on battle brothers a few months ago. Been playing it ever since. Gameplay rought with a lot of setbacks and losses you can make along the way but the journey will be worth it in the late game when your +70 Mdef hedge knight solos the black monolith
