Played about an hour with Matt during the free weekend. This game has very high production value. It's like an anime with better graphics. Not only are there tiny mini-cutscenes amidst the game, but little things straight out of an anime, like two fighters leaping at each other and trading a flurry of blows mid-air where all their fists keep bouncing off each other's because they're in perfect sync. Beautiful looking game.

I was, of course, terrible at it, and am reminded that fighting games aren't for me. But for those who like fighting games (or Dragonball Z), you have two hours left if you want to try it.

Got sucked into another idle game -- which I guess is progress from clicker games? This one's called "Numbers Go Up" Idle, which I like for reducing the whole thing to its dumbest and most primal attraction. Also since it's an idle game instead of a clicker, it requires less active playing and more leaving numbers to go up while I ignore it for a half a day, which is an improvement.

But, y'know, still not as good as not playing it. Maybe this coming week I'll get back to the meaty games like Deus Ex and Hollow Knight.

Nearing the end of Chapter 6. So much sadness.

The original RDR was a great game in some ways and pretty shaky in others... but John Marston was an all-time Top 5 videogame protagonist.

I feel that Arthur Morgan easily joins those ranks. Honestly he's a contender for #1 in terms of most well-rendered character in all of videogaming. The events of RDR2 really make me want to revisit the original, which is something I had no interest in doing a couple of months ago.

I'm sure there are plenty of unique little things I haven't seen or encountered in this game, but I'm proud of the fact that I've gotten all three encounters with the Ku Klux Klan.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
1. Large rally in the woods at night with 15 or so members erecting a burning cross. If you prowl unseen in the bushes, they screw up lighting the cross on fire and the fire spreads and they all run off screaming, at which point you can go into Deadeye and gun as many of them down as possible. Your honor goes up for doing this.

2. Only three guys in the daytime - one who appears to be a long-time member and two newbies, moving a large wooden cross into position. As the older guy barks orders, the two younger ones strain to lift the cross up and after a few seconds it falls on top of them. You can then shoot the older guy. Once again, bonus points to honor.

3. Only four guys at night, with torches. When you first espy them from the road, one is complaining that it was supposed to be a big rally and no-one showed up. You can go into Deadeye and headshot all four of them before they see you. Again, honor goes up.

Only one squad left to take to the final island.

When I start a new squad, I think it's the worst. By the end, I think it's the best. Impressive balance.

And good achievements too. A lot of games ignore exploring the nooks and crannies of a game through achievements and rather see them as a end in themselves.

Back into this. Around 18 hours, level 24, Chapter 3. It's pretty dull so far, maybe I need to advance the main story more, but I want to make sure I'm levelled up, and I want to spend some time in the areas of the map. Although the map is not very interesting, just farm land and plains. It's pleasant. I'm getting a little bit better at the combat, using Wait mode, and thinking of it as an MMO style, with slower pace.

Best game in the world (for me, lately, anyway).

I just won a tough small-map duel, playing as a dwarven dreadnought. My random opponent turned out to be the same race and class.

It was an islands map, and I had a hard time expanding. I had forts built all across the south of the map, but I couldn't get settlers built or sent there fast enough. While I was working on it, the enemy attacked and nearly took my throne city. He did take another city, across the water.

I got my forces together and embarked. Caught the enemy leader nearly alone at sea and banished him to the void. That bought me time to move up and capture two of his cities. But the bloody battle for the second one saw my leader sent to the void, and I was left with only one unit. That unit (a dwarven firstborn) put up a great fight but ultimately went down. Soon I lost the other captured city too, and I was back to square one.

We both revived and rebuilt, and the whole scene started to repeat. I captured the first city, but this time enemy forces pushed me out. After retreating, though, I caught the enemy leader with a small enough army to fight and banished him to the void once again.

I wasn't strong enough to retake the city. He had tanks and cannons, and I was still fighting with trebuchets and musketeers. So I headed for the other city instead, hoping to find it lightly defended.

It was. So I quickly took it and kept my armies moving. Next in line was the enemy throne city, and I hoped to get there before his leader returned.

No such luck. He was there, defending, with a fairly good force. But I had two armies to his one, three heroes to his one. I didn't have the patience for a manual battle, but the estimate was a probable victory for me, so I went for it--and won. My hero was sent back to the void again, but his was now gone forever.

He was ahead in points--about 11,000 to my 8,000. He'd likely have beaten me if I hadn't played aggressively.

Shotgun is way overpowered.

It's depressing. You don't have to aim to beat someone with one carelessly aimed shot, while an assault rifle takes multiple bullets.

It makes the game really pathetic.

Bored with shotgun fools who can't aim. If they're going to play that way, make the assault rifle rounds cause suppression so they cannot shoot.

Ever since BF4, BF seems to continue to dumb down the game. Hardline, BF1, and now BFV are all made, so low talent people can win.

Yay. yuk

You look at a game like Frostpunk, and when you lose a settler it's just a number. A number you don't like, but just a number.

Rimworld, you lose a settler and it hurts because you know that guy. At least, in my games. I never get much higher than 5 settlers. In this particular case, a lady was running for her life from some people, and I took her in. They came after her. James and Eggnog went out to fight, and James was killed, Eggnog captured, and then the enemy ran away. Our settlement was defended but at far too high a cost. Eggnog was our main defender and hunter. James was the husband of Mila and son of Fugly. Even though he wasn't worth anything on his own, his relationships kept the people who actually did the work all day happy. And now, they're not.

I'm expecting major mental breaks from both of them.

I happen to have a prisoner at the moment as well, but I think I'm going to let her go. She doesn't bring much to the table except strife.

The only reason I even considered letting the running away woman join our colony was that she was Erisen's sister, and we understand family in our colony. We couldn't say no. But it was a terrible idea in hindsight.

Final Fantasy II -- Via Final Fantasy Origins on my PSP. Took two tries, but got the Egil's Torch from Kas'ion, then returned to find Princess Hida kidnapped. Now trying to get myself ready to face the Dreadnought. Moving along well, I guess, but it is hard to tell what "level" everyone needs to be. Still, enjoying the progression of the story and am champing at the bit to continue.

Batter Up-- Emulated on GBA. Got the game added to the database, now waiting on alternate name and images to get approved. Anyway, played the next game against for the Giants, taking on the Nippon-Ham Fighters. Scored a run in the top of the 1st, but they got one back in the second, and soon took a 2-1 lead. I threatened a couple of times, but did not break through until the 8th, when I scored 2 runs on double. They had a baserunner in the 9th but I pitched out of the jam for the win. Next up should be the Fukuoka/Daiei Hawks.

Technically played yesterday but I misposted so here we are.

Picked up Symbiosis. It makes the loading screen decidedly creepy, despite the Mykara ostensibly being some of "the good guys." As good as one can be in this scenario, I suppose.

I realize after 30-something hours, I've never completed a game. I'll forget about it for a while, a new DLC will come out, I'll blow all of my saves away to play with the new toy, rinse and repeat.

Like last week, I'm practically sampling every game ever. Unlike last week, I've gained one or two victories.

I started my fourth or fifth playthrough of Bully about a week ago, and am currently 75% of the way through.

Returned to Rocky Legends for the first time in years yesterday. Because of how short and easy Novice difficulty is, I've already made Apollo Creed world champion, and stopped that "bum from the neighbourhood" Rocky from going the distance.

Finally, onto the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, where I beat the first game on difficulty 1. On the PSP, every opponent before Sagat is a little tougher than they are in this version; here, everyone is relatively easy, until you hit Sagat. Holy f**k, Sagat was f**king brutal.

The unanimous word is that it's the genuine 8th wonder of the world, so I didn't want to miss it.

I'm only a couple of hours into it. So far, so good, but it's too early to know if the game's deckbuilding system lives up to its hype.

I somehow missed the existence of this game (it's Devolver and weird, two things that tend to catch my attention), but a friend brought it up and dang, it is perfect.

This is a platformer that sells itself on somewhat minimalistic dialogue and just all around goofiness, in something that is coherent but weird, something that some "weird" titles don't always grasp. There's not a lot to it. You're The Beast who has awoken because, er, I dunno, you just slept a lot, and now you have to save the nearby towns from Mr. Sunshine's robots. It's blocky, colorful, simple and silly. And compelling.

The platforming is kinda drifty in a weird sort of way but it never actually afffects the game because it's not super important. It's all about the experience.

It MIGHT be appropriate for children but it may have some light cusses in it, I honestly don't remember.

The battle is still on; I am getting a little closer, but seems to be getting some issues. I have two saves at the moment and just need to finish the last ZU-23 before storming the fortress: Once I am getting closer to this point (again), I will use my third save.

Redoing my second save stance (of three possible), I have gained a tactic to get to the checkpoint, and also limit the enemy counts attacking at the check point.

I actually think I will go take another shot at it...


-----

Done! But it was really on the last straw! I managed to get into the stronghold, eliminated all enemies outside on .50 machine guns, miniguns and grenade launchers; I also took down all RPG soldiers - all using my PSG-1 sniper rifle. A few infantry men were still out there and I managed to get pretty badly hurt! And as I entered the final building - I was out of ammo in my Colt 1911! All I had left now was the PSG-1 I picked up - on the other side of the mine field! There was a long way to go back for any ammo for the 1911 - so I just had to make it with the little health I had left (I couldn't take one more shot!) and the slow PSG rifle! If I had had more rounds in the Colt that would make it better. The room got cleared by me - and mainly by the rest of 5-0 and then I climbed the stairs! I knew the general would be up there - and an unknown amount of rebel soldiers!
But I pulled it out! The one or two (I am not sure) rebel soldiers up there got killed by the PSG - and/or frag grenade I threw up there - and the general - hiding behind a .50 MG (that he did not use), armed with a hand pistol: I had to hide as well considering how bloody my uniform were, but then I dug up and sent a bullet through him.

Unfortunately I forgot to start the timer as I redid from Save State 3... I would say... probably I've spent an hour total (including the 37 minutes up to Save State 3). At least that is what I will write. I don't think 45 will do it, as I think it took me more than 10 minutes with all my sneaking around.

But mission accomplished - game over!

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

Looks like I'm pretty close to the end. Really have enjoyed the Challenge Tombs. It looks like there is only one left, by the unlocks. With that one, I can purchase the cheaper merchants.

The skills that make traps visible and easier, I'm skipping. There might be a trophy for them, but I prefer not knowing.

If the extra tombs ever come on sale.... I'm grabbing them.

This has been a lot of fun. It reminds me of the challenged of Tomb Raider II.

Played a bit of this with my son. Does co-op up to 4 players. Been meaning to play this for a while, since I loved the previous game. Good enough.

New promise; I will stop being drunk at work and write my posts at the right geeklists.

But I am going to play the closed beta of this game from Thursday

-----

I've already spent a good amount of time on this (between 2½ and 3 hours); It seems pretty good - easier for me to play than Anno 1503: The New World or was it Anno 1602: Creation of a New World...

There are a bit of things that work slow - even starting and stopping the game actually takes quite some time!
But else it works fine; I didn't find many errors (so far) - but I did loose my ship... but that might not be the game's fault

Still playing Subnautica. Still working on my base and upgrades for vehicles. Though I'm starting to explore deeper and deeper into new areas and caves (just hit 350m.) There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of reason to explore more caves in the shallower areas as I seem to have discovered what needs to be discovered there. (At least as far as I know.)

I have markers for things 500m down which I haven't gone to yet. However, I HAVE discovered some more wreckage I hadn't found, with some upgrades I hadn't gotten yet.

And Now I have too much stuff I'm trying to cart around with me. I need to decide just what I'm going to be using and leave some stuff behind. I also have too many upgrades for things and have to decide what I want to install in my vehicles.

Also have been playing Battle Academy 1 & 2 multiplayer with some folks online. UGOIGO games. I'm really bad at both.

While waiting for the Closed Beta of Anno 1800 to be opened, I have played some quiz game - just to try it (and to get some screenshots). It is not super good - but I still look forward to get my Windows 98 computer build up so I can play it as the gods intended it... With QuickTime and everything laugh
