  1. Great Games You Can't Quite Get Into

    It's common for me to drop off a game after trying it initially and then coming back to it much later and it being my jam. I think what I want from games fluctuates and that initial part where I try it out is used as a reference for when I want something like it. Kayne and Lynch 2 is a great example of this. At first I was like "no". Then later I played all the way through it and loved it because I wanted something like that. I think that's what happened, I might have a false memory. Then of course there are games I have yet to get into. I guess I should name one of those. ... I haven't gotten into Yakuza yet, but I tried it out for a bit. The entire thing seems arbitrary and daunting even though I'm curious about it due to so many recommendations and my interest in the setting.

    I think Kylo is going to help the rebellion and Reylo is training in the desert.

  4. I see. So going for a science-win in Civilization would be a strategy. I wonder what is smaller scale than tactic. Like if it goes strategy>tactic>[...]
  5. Kinda enjoying thinking about whether or not a strategy game could exist without the ability of one player to coordinate multiple units. I don't think so. I think that the "strategy" that is being referenced is the unified efforts of multiple pieces by one player. But what if you developed some sort of decision-making system for multiple players who all control one piece? For instance if you had a game of Chess with 16 players per team and players could on one team could ping their next planned move; that would be somewhat similar to Apex Legends and possibly a strategy-game.

    It is a bit of a missed opportunity that she doesn't have many obstacles. It would be nice if they did something like have all the established characters constantly explaining to her that she can NOT have jedi capabilities because she ain't got the midis; to the point where she is trying to convince herself that they must be right because they know more about it (while levitating shit or whatever). And then Kylo is like "You have the most amazing abilities." But he is just trying to get her to do labor for his problematic agendas. That would be cool imo.

    I just figured Luke needed way more training than Rey did. Always looking toward the future he is.
  8. Star Wars Episode 8

    I can see why you would see him as an inconsistent character. TLJ didn't really do a good job expressing why Kylo hates Luke that much. I do get why he
  9. Star Wars Episode 8

    So much was set up in Last Jedi for some awesome Reylo payoffs that could reflect the philosophy of how the Lightside and Darkside relate. Reylo is going to make or break the next movie for me. What I really want is for both-sides-are-to-blame to be addressed and explained away in a convincing manner.
  10. Far Cry 5

    The mandatory story stuff is awful imo.

    I've been playing some of In Death during the free weekend on the Oculus store. If you enjoyed the Budget Cuts demo, then this is worth checking out if for nothing more than the ability to compare and contrast the two. There is more to In Death than is immediately available. I haven't played enough to see if there is a lot of depth to the enemy-types that arrive later or tge fiction of the world, but I did see something introduced after a few deaths that I found intriguing and I'm looking forward to seeing it again in order to try something on it. A quick summury of the game: Procedurally generated modular castle where you navigate through with teleportation projectiles while shooting enemies with arrows. It's roguelite with item stores and a meta-progression system based on achievements. Ultimately it is a shooting-gallery with some stealth. The opportunities for stealth approaches are very lacking though. Still fun and kinda interesting. I think the demo ends tonight at some point.
  12. Far Cry 5

    I find value in the fact that I care so little about the story a third of the way through the game that I read the spoilers without a concern.

    Pinball Arcade won't have Bally or Williams tables available for sale after June 30th.
  14. It's ultimately a small point about the game, but this article finally nailed something down for me that has always been kinda insulting about the game:

    I can see why the reviews are like this. The game is very simple and really fun. At its best moments I feel like a taiko drummer. It's neat to remember that simple can be enough.
