  1. Best Third-Person Shooters

    Hitman 2016 and Blood Money are fantastic although they are more stealth than shooter. Just Cause 2 & 3 are absolutely bonkers but have probably the best systems for moving around an open world. Spec Ops: The Line is cover based but does a better job than most shooters of having an interesting story. Ghost Recon Wildlands has a terrible jingoistic story but I found sneaking around in the jungle and stealthily taking out outposts to be super enjoyable. I loved my time with Mercenaries 1 but I don't know how easy it is to play these days, Mercs 2 wasn't as good. Smashing buildings in Red Faction Guerilla is pretty fun Red Dead Redemption was far superior to any of the GTA games I've played in terms of shooting If you can tolerate the sense of humor Saints Row 3 & 4 can be a good time
  2. Its funny because I feel exactly the opposite, I found cities got really dull as soon as I set up the basic city. Where as in Surviving Mars I feel like I'm always on the edge of cascading failures and colony collapse which keeps me going.
  3. So far I am enjoying it aside from having no idea what I am doing, how to do anything efficiently (or correctly in general). I am finding it to be a lot more compelling than Cities: Skylines due to everything feeling a lot more critical, I had a water shortage that I was scrambling to deal with so as to not have my colonists die. In Cities I doubt I would have cared as much. The smaller scale probably helps a lot with that since having 1 of 12 colonists die feels a lot worse than hundreds of people out of tens of thousands (am I a monster?)
  4. Marvel movies

    Thats true, I did appreciate the lack of a random villain flip. I just meant that JJ s1 felt far more impactful and interesting, I liked s2 but it was not nearly as good as s1.
  5. Marvel movies

    I finished Jessica Jones season 2. Not nearly as good as S1, not that i'm super surprised, its just felt more like all the other Netflix Marvel shows than S1 did.
  6. Far Cry 5

    I am going to get Far Cry 5 because open world games with sniping are something I cannot resist. I am not sold on the DLC, I get annoyed with DLC that is totally separate from the base game and though I enjoyed Blood Dragon well enough the FC4 Yeti DLC was uninspired. I am especially wary of that Vietnam one, I fear it will be the classic Ra Ra USA portrayal. We were super duper the bad guys in South East Asia and they way it calls out facing vietcong made me cringe.
  7. Movie/TV recommendations

    The new Tick tv show on Amazon Prime is surprisingly good. One of the better comedy shows I've seen lately and a very good antidote to the overly self serious Marvel shows/movies.
  8. To unlock all the normal squads you only need about 50% of the achievements however there is a special squad that costs 25 coins so getting every squad would require all achievements.
  9. Some of the pilots that have special powers have more character. I got a guy who game me 1 extra redo turn per battle and he was extremely talkative.
  10. Was shocked there wasn't a thread for Into The Breach yet. I have already played 6 hours of it, main goal is trying to unlock more squads. I enjoy how tense the game is and how many trade offs you have to make. So far my attempts at venturing beyond Easy difficulty have ended in quick death. Maybe I will try later with a custom squad of my favorite units. Two Squads I found particularly useless were the Fire squad (Flame Behemoths) which simply didn't do enough damage and one based around pushing (Zenith Guard) where a units only move damaged itself. Right now I am using the weather based squad (Rusting Hulks) and am really enjoying them. Over all I like it more than FTL partially because its hard to limp along to the end, if you mess up you will usually die pretty fast. Blitzkrieg is also a pretty good squad.
  11. The discussion on podcast theme licensing made me think of Turkish Star Wars due to production issues they stole scenes and music from a bunch of movies.
  12. Movie/TV recommendations

    Netflix has a new series called Dirty Money its really good. From the guy who wrote Smartest Guys in the Room about Enron. It looks at how damaging and integral criminal levels of greed are in our economy. The only episode I didn't like was the one about the Maple Syrup Heist in Canada because I felt like it didn't really explain the issues very well, other then that a great series.
  13. The hilarious Human: Fall Flat

    I got annoyed by the fiddly controls and clashed with the puzzle design. It felt like the puzzles required the one perfect solution designed for them, i was hoping for something where you could sort of hilariously stumble to success
  14. Quitter's Club: Don't be ashamed to quit the game.

    Mad Max I got it on sale an knew it wasn't a perfect game. I had fun blowing up stuff smashing into cars and driving all over the wasteland, but had been avoiding racing because I never enjoy it in any game. Got to a story mission near the end that is a super annoying race. After failing it 4 times I quit. Part of the issue is 99% of the game, even the optional races, are driving in a forgiving open world environment. The mission race I quit because of was very tight corridor race with infinite spawning enemies and walls that love to spin you around when you lightly tap them. Ah well, got enough fun time out of the game where I don't feel like I wasted my money.
