Jedi Fallen Order for the 3rd time while I wait for my Game Stop shipment of three games to arrive (used games, but new to me): RDR 2, Resident Evil 2 remake, Star Wars Squadrons.

u/Kluyasufoya Oct 06 '21

I didn’t like squadrons as much as I wanted to but certainly re2 remake is one of best games I have played.

3

u/LifeResetP90X3 Oct 07 '21

Cool ya I'm def excited for RE2

u/GorillaJackson Oct 07 '21

Get ready to lose the next couple months to RDR2. No but for real, awesome game. Hope you enjoy it.

u/Vidimivici Oct 06 '21

Finished up Red Dead Redemption 2. I'm glad I did. I think I like the first game a hair more but that might just be nostalgia. Best looking 8th gen game as far as I can tell.

Starting up a little indie game called Hades. Was a big fan of Bastion and I thought Transistor was good and Pyre was okay. High expectations with this one.

5

u/Fadedcamo Oct 07 '21

Hades is def their best since Bastion.

u/donuts_1799 Oct 08 '21

I got Hades because of Gamepass and I have been addicted to it all week. Really fun.

u/TiredN0M4D Oct 06 '21

Darksouls again. I've lost count of the completed runs. Just gotta beat Gwyn a couple more times. Just a few more.

u/thebusinessgoat Oct 06 '21

Lmao same. Started a new job in recent months, started working from home, so I didn't have time to play and simply didn't want to sit another few hours in front of the same screen. However I bought a new office chair that's actually pleasant to sit in unlike the old dining chair I used so I don't mind spending some extra time in it. Of course I chose my go to comfort-game.

2

u/Fadedcamo Oct 07 '21

Dark souls.... A comfort game?

5

u/thebusinessgoat Oct 07 '21

Yeah I can never get bored of it. I'm not playing constantly, there are breaks for months or even years but it's always nice to revisit. High replay value because of the different builds, challenge runs, mods. I like the gloomy athmosphere. I died so many times that this game cannot annoy me any longer, it became a comfort game for me.

1

u/impunity9 Oct 06 '21

Haha same, I actually started a str build for the first time, I usually just play a sorcery or faith type build but felt like being a naked caveman looking dude with a massive weapon this playthrough, fun so far!

u/jzuccaro1 Oct 07 '21

I got DS3 a few months ago, first intro to the Soulsbourne series and I've dumped about 200 hours across three different builds. Amazing game

Workin on platinum for God of War, also playing fallout TTW. Might play borderlands 3 with a buddy and keep chasing that platinum

3

u/Senor_Bullock Oct 06 '21

Just got my platinum for God of War last week. Was a little bit of a grind but New Game+ helped a ton.

2

u/starrstorm1 Oct 06 '21

I’m also working on the gow plat, why does NG+ help?

3

u/Senor_Bullock Oct 06 '21

I found it easier/quicker to defeat the Valkyries because I was upgraded better earlier on. Just getting through the basic enemies seemed easier too

1

u/ninjakaji Oct 06 '21

I’m assuming this wasn’t on GMGOW? GMGOW NG+ is no joke very difficult, even when you’re built well.

1

u/Senor_Bullock Oct 06 '21

Of course it wasn't. I'm not that crazy

2

u/Monkeynutz9315 Oct 06 '21

I don't intend on NG+-ing gow, I plan on getting through the main story and then going back and mopping up all the realms and trophies. I've heard the final valkyrie is a giant pain in the ass lol so I'm not gonna even attempt till I'm through the main game 100%. Valkyries will be the last thing i do.

2

u/ninjakaji Oct 06 '21

It’s hard on hard, it’s not so bad on normal.

I’d recommend doing all the valkyries last like you said leading up to Sigrun, you’ll be more familiar with the attacks if it’s fresh in your mind.

And good luck.

3

u/GorillaJackson Oct 07 '21

Ayyyy same here. Figured I might as well 100% before Ragnarok.

3

u/Monkeynutz9315 Oct 07 '21

My thoughts exactly lol I played the original god of wars back in the day but am just now getting to the new one. I have no idea why I waited so long. This game is incredible.

3

u/GorillaJackson Oct 07 '21

Oh wow it’s your first time playing it! That’s awesome. I was a HUGE fan of the old games, God Of War 3 being my favorite game of all time, until this new one beat it out. Definitely my new favorite. Enjoy!

u/nuyxolmao Oct 06 '21

I’m currently working on 100%ing all of the Assassin’s Creed games.

Unity was painful, but I finally completed it DLC and all. I’m moving backwards to Rogue (I thought it was a spin-off so I skipped it). It’s the one and only Assassin’s Creed game that I’ve never even played.

Excited to see the Templar POV.

3

u/DeepStatic Oct 06 '21

Black Flag is the only game I've ever completed 100% - all achievements. What a fantastic game. Years later I went to a beer festival aboard HMS Warrior and I was able to join in with the group singing sea shanties :D

2

u/nuyxolmao Oct 06 '21

That’s fucking sick

1

u/take5b Oct 06 '21

Were you able to do the multiplayer stuff? IIRC that is part of 100%. It's why I gave up- I just couldn't find matches and consistent co-op games on PS4. Maybe it's better on Steam/PC?

2

u/nuyxolmao Oct 06 '21 edited Oct 06 '21

If you mean for Unity, I had to do a lot of the co-op missions alone. It was absolutely excruciating. This also included finding all of the sync points throughout the mission.

I did occasionally find other players but only on lower difficulty missions. I never got anybody for even a single level 5 mission.

I’m on PS4

u/fuckprecalc Oct 06 '21

I just downloaded ffix; never played an ff game before. I'll start tomorrow.

Recently started super metroid. I've played quite a bit of the castlevania side of the metroidvania genre but not played the metroid side of it before. It's been fun so far, I'm planning on having a look at dread.

2

u/FlyingDutch1988 Oct 06 '21

My nr 1 game of all time, I'm 33 now and still have the SNES with the game. Back then I 100% the game under 5 hours because I played it over and over. No guides, no google, just hardcore exploring.

2

u/darkraidisciple Oct 06 '21

Nice, I'm currently trying to figure out how to get an orange tank with an e in the ceiling in brinstar where I got my first 10 missiles. I've tried using bombs to jump up but it keeps re-covering itself before I can get up there.

1

u/FlyingDutch1988 Oct 06 '21

You might skip it for now and wait for an upgrade later on to get it. My biggest problem which took me hours over several days was the glass tube you run through at a certain point. It is breakable, but I didn't know that for sure.

2

u/darkraidisciple Oct 06 '21

Yeah i had a feeling that the timing for jumping off the bombs seemed too tight for that to be the intended method.

2

u/FlyingDutch1988 Oct 06 '21

It is possible to get very high with good timing, but not worth the effort I guess. Good luck and enjoy the great game!

1

u/darkraidisciple Oct 06 '21

I think it took me about 10-15 attempts to hit the ceiling, but my that point it had covered back up too quickly.

1

u/LifeResetP90X3 Oct 07 '21

Flying Dutch.......you are my bro from anotha ma. I have had this EXACT same epic experience with Super Metroid (minus the 100% completion). 'You are a God among insects'. Lol I also still have my SNES AND the cartridge Metroid game that still works perfectly. I never 100%ed it but hey I still can go for it....lol

2

u/FlyingDutch1988 Oct 07 '21

It's a lot of scanning with that x-ray haha, thanx for the compliment. Hey back then you played the same game over and over. I still play games for 100% trophies / achievements (now with guides) It's in your blood. We can't play with a snes on current tv's can we? That's a shame

2

u/LifeResetP90X3 Oct 07 '21

It's in your blood.

Sure is man......well said. And actually, I believe you still can with most TVs. I do with mine often. I have an LG 4K 55" TV. It has (below the HDMI ports in the back) the classic red, yellow, white AV connections needed for hooking up an SNES (or other classic gaming systems; I do the same with my NES). I then turn it to 'AV' setting in the dashboard menu, and......boom! SNES ready to go. 👍💪

1

u/FlyingDutch1988 Oct 08 '21

Ah ok cool, never checked if I still have it, let me check now... nope mine hasn't anymore, just bought a new samsung.

1

u/thenotsofunnyside Oct 06 '21

I played this on the Switch NSO SNES app last year. Was instantly hooked by the music and fell in love with the gameplay eventually.

u/azrendelmare Oct 06 '21

I also recommend checking out Zero Mission on the Game Boy Advance. I thought it was a really good remake of the first game.

u/FizzyBeverage Oct 07 '21

Flight simulator on a Xbox series S. I can’t believe how awesome a $249 open box console is at playing this beautiful game! Just blows my mind.

It blows my mind how this game came out a while ago... are you enjoying

2

u/Chambonz Oct 13 '21

Yeah it's brilliant! I'm really enjoying the story. I'm a little over half way through the main story. Most of the game play is fairly solid. And as an Australian resident I appreciate everyone driving on the left!

u/JusaPikachu Oct 06 '21

Outer Wilds: Echoes of the Eye continuation of maybe the best game ever made. So so so great so far and planning to put in a bunch of time tonight.

Hell Let Loose way more complicated than I expected. I only played like 20 minutes but I’m very into the concept so I’ll probably check out some starter guides and videos & hop back in.

Battlefront II (2017) great time just slaughtering rebel scum & empire bootlickers & dumbass clones & annoying ass droids. Also Heroes Vs Villains is the shit

Splitgate fun ass game. Slowed down on how much I play but still super fun to hop into whenever.

1

u/1i_rd Oct 07 '21

What is Outer Wilds like? Is it comparable to something?

2

u/JusaPikachu Oct 07 '21

Nope. It is a space sim set in a miniature solar system that is stuck in a timeloop. It has no combat, no objective markers, no upgrades, no tools to unlock & basically will do nothing to hold your hand at all. No progression other than the knowledge you learn & the web like note taking system in your ship’s computer. Greatest piece of mystery ever created in any medium because, unlike every other piece of mystery media, you actually have to use observation & critical thinking & problem solving & knowledge retention to solve the mysteries of this universe.

1

u/1i_rd Oct 07 '21

This sounds pretty cool. I love space stuff.

1

u/xDskyline Oct 07 '21

Try to find more recent guides for HLL, general advice will be the same (stick with your squad lead, call out targets over mic, move from cover to cover and spend most of your time stationary) but a lot of the mechanics (how nodes work, where you can build garrisons) have changed over time so older guides may be outdated. Although then again as a beginner you won't need to worry yourself with detailed mechanics just yet.

u/Snoo61755 Oct 06 '21

Until You Fall

Melee VR Roguelike. At the start of a run, you pick two weapons, one for each hand. "Mainhand" weapons tend to have a bit more reach and damage, while "offhand" weapons tend to have boosts to your character as a whole. Win a fight, and you can pick either a boost to one weapon, a boost to your overall character, or grab money.

My first win, I got using the axe and the offhand dagger - axe does big damage for full swings but moves a little 'clunkier', whereas the parry dagger responds more quickly to hand movements and makes it ideal for blocking. However, I've also been having tons of fun with the rapier+crest; the rapier is a well-balanced and responsive mainhand weapon that I actually stuck in my non-dominant hand to give me a bit of a workout, while the crest is a sucky weapon that gives amazing overall stats to your character.

Depending on your weapons of choice, the feel of the game is completely different. Axe has me doing big swings, so I'm always going a bit wild; the rapier with the stat-stick crest makes for a true one-handed style, and feels more elegant and calculated in its approach.

Had a 'why not both' moment and went both Rapier AND Axe tonight. Think I found a new favorite.

Finished the original trilogy last night, decided to start 4 rather than jumping to ODST or Reach (Reach seems right up my alley though, so I’ll play that sooner than later) and so far I’m having an absolute blast with it!

u/1i_rd Oct 07 '21

Just got to ME3 yesterday. Forgot how much fun these games were. They all have their different perks. ME1 has a cool story but so so gameplay (Fuck the Mako). ME2 has great characters and atmosphere plus the gameplay is much more fun. ME3 builds on the fun gameplay of 2 but I can't say much about the story yet.

1

u/D0nk3yD0ngD0ug Oct 07 '21

Almost done with ME1 and agree on gameplay. Fuck the Mako. But it is one hell of a story they are telling. I ended up turning down the difficulty to not get frustrated with the fighting mechanics and am just enjoying the story. And I am usually not someone who cares at all about storytelling in games but I am totally all in on ME.

u/1i_rd Oct 07 '21

u/VictusFrey Oct 06 '21

Started Hitman 2. I played the first game when I was younger but I didn't find stealth games that fun back then. Now that I'm older, Hitman is pretty great.

My only gripe is the main menu. Campaigns, destinations, contracts, Hitman 1 content, Hitman 3 content, DLCs I don't have access to, it's all overwhelming for a new player. Just take me to the stuff I can play.

2

u/lupuscapabilis Oct 06 '21

Even as someone who's put hundreds of hours into all 3 games, sometimes I'm still sitting there going "how do I load a game again?" It's a weird menu.

I’ve started Scarlet Nexus yesterday - so far it’s just okay. The combats cool and I love the cut ins, but the lock on system is way too loose for what I’m used to in a game like this. The story is fine so far, I think it’ll start opening up soon since I’m still dealing with function explanations. Also, as a JRPG guy I REALLY like the constant voice acting.

I’ve also been playing Pathfinder: WOTC; still can’t break through to after the prologue because I have a hard time of focusing on not just going back and making a new character in games like this, but I think if I just go with a Chaotic Good Barbarian or something I won’t get too bogged down by all the choices.

Also Lost Judgment, I might bounce back to that if I can’t get into a rhythm on the other two. I’m just in a place of that game where I have to do stuff I’m not super into (gambling, the girl bar) if I want to progress parts I am into (every other sidequests) because it feels like I’m hitting a point where stuff might start to shut me out. Great game though.

Celeste

courtesy of Game Pass on PC. Man, I am so loving Game Pass- I recently finished building my modest PC and plan on using Game Pass to try games that I wouldn't buy until Elden Ring comes out.

Celeste is exactly such a game- beloved indy classic, but it's a tough platformer and I don't generally go for those, it's just so frustrating to jump to my death hundreds of times.

I'm about half-way through I think (finished chapter 4). I don't know if I'll finish it, it's so so brutally hard for me. Fingers cramping and such. But I think what has propelled me to keep trying the same stupid jumps like literally 500 hundred times is that there's no loading time (the advantage of a game that looks like it was made in 1984) and the awesome music.

I am just so impressed by indy game music soundtracks, and Celeste's sorta-electro grooves pair surprisingly well with my pixel deaths.

I finally decided to play Payday 2 on PC.

Running around with a group of friends or strangers and robbing banks or jewelry stores is pretty fucking fun!

I'm also a sucker for games with a lot of build diversity, and from what I've seen/watched there's a lot of it. You get to select from a bunch of Skills and Perk Decks to customize how you want to go about a heist. You also get to customize each gun you equip with various ammos and attachments.

Even though the game is like 8 years old now there's a pretty active community surrounding the game even today.

I'm surprised I didn't find this game sooner.

I re-started playing Need for Speed Payback. My father installed it on a Saturday morning while I was sleeping cause it was free with PS Plus. It was a good game but stopped playing it Sunday afternoon cause I wasn't able to complete a "difficult" race, but it introduced me into the NFS saga. I played it sometimes cause I was tired of other games, but never caught my attention. Some days ago a friend of mine asked me to play it together and rediscovered it! Now I'm looking forward to the platinum (it would be my first), but without losing the experience of the game. I like it very much, but a very popular opinion is that it changed too much since the other NFS games. NFS Hot Pursuit for example is a game I fell in love with, but Payback is a very good game, I like it much (I don't like the online version so I don't play it). I recommend more likely Hot Pursuit (from 2010 or 12, very good game with a so high quality), or Carbon (2006), which maybe is not the best game ever made, but for being a 2006 title it seems like it was made in 2011! I didn't play no one of these two, but I highly recommend the NFS saga.

Got an electric guitar at a yard sale a few month ago, decided to pick up Rocksmith and learn to play. So far, it's alright, kind of a pain, kind of annoyed that you couldn't skip the basics, finger positioning sucks, always getting dead chords with my large fingers.

Back to playing Helldivers. When it first came out I found it mediocre but there's just no new co-op games coming out that's fun. Decided to try it again since it first came out and the amount of shit they've added to it over the years, it's just fun again.

Playing Baldur's Gate II again, for the 40th god damn time. Wish we had a newer cRPG that was fun at all aspects of it. Seems like either the gameplay/combat sucks butt or the writing is just absolute dogshit. I think the only one I played that I was happy with since BGII was Dragon Age Origins.

Splitgate because I'm old school and loved arena shooters. Really miss Lawbreakers so Splitgate is a very welcome addition to my library.

Vietcong from 2003, great soundtrack, atmosphere and gunplay isn't too bad either and the only issue I've come across so far is that there isn't a modern remake or remaster since it's desperately in need of one.

Ooh good luck!

Are you following a guide, or keeping notes or something? Figuring out all the random awards can be tricky, let me know if you need help or anything, I pretty much memorized this game.
