  1. What's the Name of the Game!?

    Yeeeeeeeees! Good.
  2. What's the Name of the Game!?

    Remaining unguessed images that you just GOTTA GET. I don't know about the other ones, but these are the ones that someone really should be able to guess. 62. This one has been mentioned on Idle Thumbs I think. Some people say that it's not as bad as the reviews said it was. I'd say it was kinda ok I guess? 64. I think this game was also one of the vending machine images from earlier. 71. BIG FRANCHISE. 76. UNDERWHELMING PS4 SCLUSIE 77. This game was THE TALK OF THE TOWN when it came out about a year and a half ago. A lot of people hated it. A few weirdos liked it. I picked it up in a sale about a year ago and had a few good days with it, before never touching it again. It's a weird one, for sure. It's got a lot of issues, but it also has its charms.
  3. Far Cry 5

    Yeah I saw that title before I got to the end, and it made me very curious of just how bad it would be. Honestly, it's not the worst ever. Storywise it's garbage, but gameplaywise it's pretty good actually. It could have ended with a QTE bossfight or something, like FC3 and Dying Light did, but instead it's a pretty novel shootout segment followed by a set-piece-heavy driving bit. I actually enjoyed the finale up until the very last bit. It looked for a moment like it was going to go out on a gloriously over-the-top stupid note, befitting of all the ridiculousness that led up to it, but then the game decided that "NOPE, we're gonna go DEEP, maaaaaaaan." and I just rolled my eyes and went ugh. UGH!

    I can't speak for #57, but the rest are correct. Well done, YOU CHEATER!
  5. Far Cry 5

    ALL DONE. At 42 hours it dragged on a bit longer than I would've prefered, but I still enjoyed my time with FC5. The ending was crap tho. The ending will have you saying "WHAT? What is this, game? What do you think you're DOING? You did not EARN this! Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck you."
  6. Movie/TV recommendations

    I just recently finished the last season of Love. Loved it the whole way through. Didn't realize it was such a polarizing show until the last couple pages of this thread. Come on man. I didn't come to choc a little I didn't come to choc a little I didn't come to choc a little I came to CHOCOLAT! Genius! Ok ok. It's a weird brand of hipster anti-comedy where you gotta be in on the joke that it's a TERRIBLE JOKE to get the joke. Also helps if you're familiar with and perhaps even slightly enjoyed Paul Rust's real-life ex-band Don't Stop Or We'll Die.
  7. What's the Name of the Game!?

    Ok, AFAIK these are the still un-answered ones. Get these right and you are a VIDEO GAME GENIUS. 5. 19. 20. 32. 35. (Laco has played this one. I saw it in his Steam profile. He probably doesn't remember it tho. I didn't remember what it was either when I found the screenshot. It was pretty mediocre.) 40. 42. (this is a good one. it's still in Early Access tho) 43. 51. 57. 60. (I don't actually expect anyone to get this one. "Mixed" Steam reviews, and it doesn't really deserve any better.) 62. 63. (c'mon, you've all played this one, I'm sure) 64. 70. 71. 76. 77.
  8. Far Cry 5

    Yeah the co-op is good stuff. Definitely looking forward to teaming up again. And congrats on the win, Roderick! What PS4 exclusives are you gonna be picking up? Bloodborne and TLOU (unless you've already played it on PS3) are the must-plays, in my book.
  9. Picked this thing up since it was discounted to a tenner this weekend. With the whole thing sounding like a very hands-off narrative thingy, it's not the kinda thing I'd normally seek out, but it's getting such good reviews and word-of-mouth that I had to buy it. Haven't played it yet but I'll try to get to it later in the week.
  10. Far Cry 5

    I dug into the Map Editor this weekend and revived a classic! Search for "Interstate 77" in the Arcade mode if you wanna play it. Map Editor impressions I wasn't too hyped about the editor from the pre-release footage. Map editors for big budget games usually try to walk the fine line between being both accessible and powerful and often end up being a bit bleh, like DOOM's Snapmap editor. The FC5 editor is very easy and pleasant to use, and features tons of objects, and switching between editor and playtesting is almost instantanous. The terrain-sculpting tools are great, perhaps even better than Unity's! But there's also clear drawbacks. The maximum play area isn't terribly big, I use pretty much all of it in this level, there's a budget on how many objects you can place(I maxed out the number of vehicles), and you can only choose from a certain selection of pre-defined objectives. Most problematically for me was that you can't explicitly tell the AI to patrol or use vehicles, you can only tell them to go to a specific area at the start, and if there's a vehicle near their spawn point they'll use it to drive over there. Overall tho, I really enjoyed using the editor, and I might make a few more maps with it.
  11. Missions that made you quit

    Oooooh yes. I had a hard time thinking of anything, but Ravenholm did put a stop to my first HL2 playthrough as well. I don't like creepy crawly things that wanna get close to my face, so when HL2 started introducing headcrabs and barnacles I had to get myself nicely liquoured up to have the courage to keep playing. Eventually I got used to them, but when I got to Ravenholm a long-legged thing came skittering around the corner and I NOPE'D out of there and didn't return for a year or two. Eventually worked up the courage to play through the game, and even went back and played HL1 later on, which I'd given a miss for the same reasons.

    Controller or M+KB is definitely the way to go. While you can hook up a wheel you'll likely have to use it in combination with a mouse for several functions, so it's quite unwieldy.
  13. Far Cry 5

    This really is one of those open world games you can loose yourself in, been playing it all weekend. I'm usually more fond of western settings in the AC games (AC3's America, Syndicate's London), so no surprise I'm liking Montana better than the more exotic locales of previous FC titles. The buddy system is great and reminds me more of MGS V than FC2, tho that's perhaps because my main buddies are a dog and a sniper lady. The cars are more dynamic and fun than in earlier iterations, and the ones with machineguns strapped to the roof kinda make me feel like I'm playing an Interstate 76 sequel at certain points. The planes are pretty good, but the helicopters handle in such a dumb arcadey way that I get no joy from flying them. Only thing that outright pisses me off in this game are the tight parameters of many of the story missions, regarding mission areas and whatnot. In one particularly egregious moment I had set up bombs with timers all over a camp, and as the voice on the radio told me to haul ass I did just that, with bullets flying past my head I ran into the forrest, only to be greeted with a "You are leaving the mission area!" warning. NO SHIT I'm leaving the mission area, there's a huge explosion about to go off! I turned around and saw a mission marker near the entrance of the camp. Apparently "haul ass" hadn't meant "haul ass", so much as "go to this one specific spot and watch the explosion", so I had to (idiotically) run back into the gunfire as the timer on the bomb kept ticking closer to zero.

    Yeah TW3 took me like 3 or 4 months worth of weekends to beat. Currently playing through the Blood & Wine expansion. It's a good weekend game. It's too complicated to get into on a weekday evening, but spending a lazy Saturday riding through Toussaint, getting pulled into crazy sidequests and looking for paintings to hang in my new house, is a good time. Anyway, 25 hours in I've beaten Spintires: Mudrunner. I've done all the singleplayer maps and challenges, that is. Sorry about the pile of screenshots, but I just can't help myself. This game is so god damn beautiful. And with suspensions creaking, mud deforming, plumes of exhaust smoke billowing, it looks even more beautiful in motion. I'm a huge Spintires fan. Played the original demo in 2012 and instantly backed the Kickstarter when it came up a year later. I was dismayed by all the troubles the development went through under the original publisher, Oovee, but with the development now under a new publisher, Focus, and with original developer Pavel still in control, development has been flourishing. It now has the long-awaited cockpit-view, the wonky camera controls have been remade, AND Steam Workshop Map support just entered public beta. The game is more perfect than ever. If for some reason you've been holding off on getting this Russian lumber-hauling sim, the finest off-roading game since Screamer 4x4 came out 18 years ago, then now is the time to get onboard. COME ON IN, PEOPLE, THE WATER IS FINE! Or should I say, the MUD is fine!?
  15. What's the Name of the Game!?

    Ah yes, that's what 67 is, that's the title I was thinking off! And Laco, Merus and Korax are all correct.
