u/KhostfaceGillah Oct 14 '21

Same, it's such a long ass game, I ain't complaining but god damn

u/daviii_32 PC Oct 14 '21

How much % do u have atm?

u/FatterPanda Oct 14 '21

How long is the game? And what are your initial thoughts about it? I would like to try it this week but I'm a bit tight on time

u/KhostfaceGillah Oct 14 '21

A simple Google says..

" It is possible to speed run through Far Cry 6's main campaign in around 13 hours with the game on its easiest setting and skipping the game's cutscenes. For players that want to spend more time with some of the side content that should take around 25 to 30 hours".

And I like it so far, there have been a few glitches that were annoying, like having to follow an npc and them not moving at all.. I had to machete them a few times, revive them and/or start an auto save again for me to carry on and the ability not to go 3rd person whilst in a vehicle/riding a horse sucks though.

u/9nether Oct 14 '21

the speedrun is currently 38 minutes actually

also 25 to 30 hours doesn't sound long at all to me for a AAA game, currently 100 hours into Witcher 3 (haven't finished the main story) doing far from all the side content

u/PointlessPotion Oct 13 '21

Hades. I reached the credits yesterday. What an experience.

Now I need to further the plot. I wonder if the Olympians will ever find out what happened. Charon is still beating me up in regular intervals. Also Thanatos has vanished since the queen returned and I must find my boi to shower him with gifts and attention.

I might aim for a 100%, but I'm not sure if I have the skills to pull that off. As a last resort, I still have God Mode if it gets too heated out there. Skelly deserves to have his likeness portrayed.

1

u/morefiend Oct 13 '21

I started Hades but got distracted with other games after 3-4 hours in. Convince me it's worth picking back up.

u/PointlessPotion Oct 13 '21

My main selling point was the dialogue and characters. Each run has new things in it. The gods can be dicks, but everyone in the house of Hades is likeable. Also the game keeps some of your progress, which is nice.

There are six weapons which will make you play completely differently each time, with unlockable aspects that change their movesets or perks. The game does great in encouraging you to try out everything and not be scared of consequences.

The cool thing is that even if a boss or area seems unsurmountable, you just keep trying and get better. In one run, your boons will have the synergy you need and you'll learn strategies to overcome the obstacles. Some builds can create insane burst damage or iframes (Athena is your friend) that will make you power through.

Each run also gives you new bits of lore and plot, moreso if you manage to escape. The endgame is still fun because you can tweak bossfights and gameplay to add new stuff or make it more difficult. Also I just love decorating the house, but never have enough gems.

You gotta be okay with basically playing the same stuff over and over - but this game does its utmost to add variety and spice up your interest with good writing. The voice actors are also all really talented and the songs feel mystical and beautiful.

Now if that doesn't suit you, play Far Cry or something, I'm not your mom.

u/poemsofadork Oct 13 '21

lol, your last line convinced me

u/morefiend Oct 14 '21

Alright, you convinced me. I remember liking what I played, I just kind of forgot about it. I've played several other games with a similar gameplay style, so I'm cool with it. I'm gonna make it a point to start it up again soon.

Far cry 6 on ps4 and luigis mansion dark moon on 2ds. Grinding on season 6 battle pass in cold war also.

u/Rejected_Hyrule_Hero Oct 13 '21

How's it going on PS4? I already asked but wanted a second opinion. I'm thinking of buying it when the price goes down a bit, but I want to be sure is at least as stable as Far Cry 5.

Edit: PS4 Slim, in my case.

1

u/AbsoluteMad-Lad Oct 13 '21

So far so good. I'm a solid 10 hours in and it runs fine.

u/Maverick8787 Oct 14 '21

Dark moon has got to be my favourite ds game. Played the hell out of that

u/Boomersimpsonn Oct 13 '21

Managed to get my hands on both the PS5 and Switch OLED so it’s either Skyward Sword HD or Ghost of Tsushima for me.

7

u/poemsofadork Oct 13 '21

Quick warning about Ghost. It’s such a beautiful game that I decided to clear the entire first island/act one before moving on to act two and ended up getting burnt out. If I could tell myself to not do that…there are still fox dens and bandit camps in act two to whet your appetite. Though the sense of satisfaction after clearing the island was beautiful.

u/LustHawk Oct 13 '21

Returned to Destiny 2 and I'm really enjoying it. So much better than the first year of the game.

u/Bozo247 Oct 14 '21

Assassins Creed, the original. Don't really know much about the series, just decided to start from the first and work my way up.

u/Webbeth Oct 14 '21

That’s cool you’ll have fun with it. Don’t bother looking for all the collectable flags though it takes way too long.

1

u/take5b Oct 14 '21

Oh wow that is so cool. How are you finding the gameplay and visuals (I’m assuming PC?)

1

u/Bozo247 Oct 15 '21

The gameplay is good but the controller layout/UI is awful. For how dated the game is, it still holds up.

u/Pelthail Oct 13 '21

Just finished Metroid Dread tonight. Man what a fun game. After I beat it I started a file on Metroid Fusion and then I’ll go through Dread one more time on Hard Mode. Really well made game.

2

u/HeyRogi Xbox Oct 14 '21

Nice but I think I’ll wait till Christmas to play dread

2

u/throwit823 Oct 15 '21

I'm like an hour in. Is the entire game just running away from EMMIs? This is getting old quick

1

u/Pelthail Oct 15 '21

No, not really. And soon enough you’ll start getting a temporary energy that kills them. Once one is dead it doesn’t come back.

u/Unhappy-Historian348 Oct 14 '21

I felt like it's a bit repetitive, it hasn't really hooked me in. It leaves me wanting play hollow knight again

B4B and borderlands 3

u/TitaniumDragon Oct 14 '21

How are you liking Back 4 Blood?

2

u/Unhappy-Historian348 Oct 14 '21

It's surprisingly fun. Story is bit of an afterthought and the dialogue is comical at times, but the guns feel good and the game play loop works. I've only played it a bit but if you have game pass on Xbox then I would recommend it

1

u/IkonikBoy Xbox Oct 14 '21

I remember it being more fun and filled with people, haven't tried the VS mode yet

Back4Blood on gamepass - silly frantic shooting fun and enjoying it.

Biomutant - open world explorer game. Relaxing & love the visuals/world building.

Want to be playing Hell Let Loose but servers are fucked and haven't been able to join a game since release 8 days ago. Not pleased.

u/take5b Oct 13 '21 edited Oct 14 '21

Rare for me now is that I'm playing two games, both courtesy of Game Pass for PC.

Darkest Dungeon

The difficult "serious" game, playing on my laptop since it's a turn-based point and click indy. I'm surprised to find myself playing a game that feels like it's from the '90's but here I am. Normally I don't have patience for turn-based games but this one is compelling so far. I don't know if I'll actually finish the campaign because it is hard as heck but it's pretty cool for now. I like having a game on my laptop I can play with the sound off while I listen to music or podcasts or whatever.

Marvel's Avengers

Playing on my actual gaming PC plugged into my TV, the complete opposite of Dungeon is a big dumb AAA live-service media market tie-in with multiplayer, cliche action tropes and dodge/counter/light-or-strong attack mechanics and comic book bullshit. But it's fun enough for what it is. Sure is pretty, I guess. Hulk smash and whatnot. I heard the single player campaign is not bad and so far... yeah, it's not bad. The exact kind of thing that's great to have access to as part of the GP subscription but nothing I would ever pay for.

Edit: i can’t handle Avengers any more. The story campaign isn’t interesting enough to “play” through endless tutorial advertisements for cosmetics and mtx.

Meanwhile Dungeon has taken over my gaming energies. I dunno why I’m into this stupid repetitive turn based difficulty… it’s JUST hard enough to make me want to keep trying

2

u/Vidimivici Oct 13 '21

Playing through Xcom2 War of the Chosen. I seem to come back to Xcom2 every couple of years which is a sign thats its one of my favorites.

I've also given Hades about five hours. Its definitely a Supergiant game and a good change of pace from all of the open world, cinematic, turn based, and metroidvanias. Its just a tight action game with a lot of freedom in the gameplay and interesting characters. Hades doesnt seem like its trying to do everything but I can see why its so successful. I'll probably be playing this one of and on for awhile.

Diablo 2 resurrected. Many people are complaining about all the problems with it but it’s giving me all the nostalgia vibes I need and I am greatly enjoying it when I find the time to play

u/aymanalien Oct 14 '21

No Mans Sky, fresh playthrough!

u/SnottyChunks Oct 14 '21

Aragami 2 on my XBOX S. Old fashioned stealth game with some cool abilities. Having a blast!

1

u/take5b Oct 14 '21

Oh I was considering that as my next Game Pass pick. I like ninja stuff, but reviews do seem mixed

1

u/SnottyChunks Oct 15 '21

It's cartoony. It can get a bit repetitive e.g. you revisit the same maps but with slightly different objectives. I really enjoyed it. There's a lot of fun moves e.g. turning invisible to assassinate someone. It's stealth based. You can get overwhelmed easily if you take on too many!

1

u/take5b Oct 15 '21

Cool. Seems like it's worth playing- normally I get mad with myself if I don't finish a game but the fun of Game Pass is quitting what bores me without feeling guilty about the money I've wasted.

2

u/NightshadeGS Oct 13 '21

Persona 5. Had it on my backlog for a while now. Been playing the shit out of it and loving every moment. Also, Futaba is best girl.

u/TitaniumDragon Oct 14 '21

I want to play that but it is not on PC. :(

u/BlackRaven128 Oct 13 '21

I really want to play tales of arise but my financial situation won't let me. So instead I'm re-playing tales of vesperia..

Probably gonna play some car mechanic simulator for a while today. Having a few quiet weeks with gaming until new games come out in the coming few months but haven't been online for 4 days, and right now, I feel today is a good day for some car mechanic simulator 😎

3

u/PF_Cactus Oct 13 '21

One of those games that i really enjoy playing but i can't stop feeling like i'm wasting my time playing it.

2

u/pwfoff Oct 13 '21

I feel like I'm wasting my time on most other games atm tbh because I just know in the next few weeks, I'll likely never play them much again.

I just like games like car mechanic simulator as I'll put music on and just get lost in my own little world for a few hours.

1

u/morefiend Oct 13 '21

Ah yes, I know that feeling. I call it Minecraft Remorse.

2

u/PF_Cactus Oct 13 '21

Hm, for me minecraft isn't one of those games. At least modded minecraft. I've not played vanilla in years lol.

1

u/brain_tortion Oct 14 '21

Modded Minecraft is nuts and I love it.

1

u/morefiend Oct 13 '21

I think I'm gonna get the original Psychonauts. Blasted through 2 and it was honestly one of the best and most creative games I've seen to date (and I'm moderately old). I never did play the original, though I had a buddy who always swore by it.

1

u/Unhappy-Historian348 Oct 14 '21

So you didn't feel like you were missing anything without playing the original game?

2

u/morefiend Oct 14 '21

I was concerned about that at first, but luckily, they include a nice little recap at the beginning which catches you up from the previous game. I don't really remember much of that recap now, so I'mma go back to the first one here soon.

1

u/Comfortable_Book_310 Oct 13 '21

Would play AC Valhalla but the ps5 update broke vibration, there is none. So either Disco Elysium or Hitman 3

1

u/Unhappy-Historian348 Oct 14 '21

Have you tried updating your controller?

u/nuyxolmao Oct 13 '21 edited Oct 13 '21

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

So far I am pleasantly surprised. Maybe it’s because I kinda hated Unity’s approach to both collectibles and extrinsic motivation for exploration, or the fact that I never hear anybody talk about this game, but I’m liking Rogue a lot more than I thought I would.

It’s got pretty much the same gameplay that made Black Flag great, and I honestly think I enjoy the setting a tad bit more. I think I just prefer snowy frontiers to a tropical setting. The naval combat is still great, the sword combat is still easy but satisfying, and the stealth is still just ok.

The soundtrack is weirdly great too? Like there are some actual fucking bops in here, and they always kick in exactly when they’re needed.

From a narrative standpoint though? This game doesn’t have shit on Black Flag. Black Flag has one of the best character driven narratives I’ve ever experienced, while Rogue is a half-assed attempt to make us sympathetic towards the Templars. It’s a cool concept, but the way they approach this is just by making the assassins do overtly awful shit and make the templars seem angelic by comparison. I honestly think AC III did a way better job here. I also don’t care for Shay in the way I cared for Edward.

The acting is also fucking AWFUL. It’s actively distracting with how bad it gets at times. Shay’s VA can actually do pretty great when he’s directed well, but damn near every line Shay delivers is done in the same exact inflection with no change in emotion. Nobody else is doing much better. La Chassueir has one of the worst French accents I’ve ever heard in a video game. Young Achilles is just awful. They must have been putting all of their VA talent into Unity because something definitely went wrong here. Haythem is still great though.

It’s definitely got problems, but I’m probably enjoying it a lot more because of how many problems I had with Unity.

2

u/take5b Oct 13 '21

My biggest problem with Rogue is that the vast majority of content is just map clearing bullshit, most of which is not needed to complete the very short story campaign.

1

u/nuyxolmao Oct 13 '21

I agree, it’s got ‘Ubisoft collectable syndrome’ for sure, but I honestly enjoy this more then Unity too. At least sailing is fun and I actually get rewards for finding things this time.

2

u/take5b Oct 13 '21

Well better than 1000 chests guarded by three brutes you need to spam smoke bomb and stab while praying the game doesn’t crash

Heyooow! Out of topic question here. Do i need higher fps when im only planning to play AAA single player pc games and dota 2 at 1080p or 60fps is enough? Thanks!

2

u/xDskyline Oct 13 '21

Higher FPS is always nicer, but most people would say that 60fps is enough for singleplayer games. And Dota doesn't really benefit from high FPS the way a competitive shooter does.

1

u/captainswiss7 Oct 13 '21

Metroid Dread and Back 4 Blood. Used to play the hell out of Left 4 Dead with a group of friends but were all older now and don't play anything together anymore. Back 4 Bloods great and really hitting that nostalgia button for me. Time to try to get the crew back together.

I’m playing Borderlands 2 for the first time (Switch port for the curious).

I haven’t played since the original came out. Loving it because I love managing my loot. I am definitely understanding the criticism about it though. There are so many guns that my favourite becomes obsolete after about fifteen minutes of gameplay.

I enjoy adapting my playstyle on the fly but I wish the skill trees were a little more varied though because resetting them is tedious.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

It is a good game. I started playing it again after a 22 month hiatus because I more or less just forgot to play it again (last play was January 4 2020).

The biggest flaw is that the World of Light, while a cute idea, is just not as interesting as subspace emissary; I had hoped from the trailer and start that it would have a plot but it doesn't really.

Debating what game to play next; I played Ori and the Will of the Wisps, The Outer Wilds, and the BG3 beta recently andimed those, but was not a fan of Watch Dogs 2. I am not sure what I want to do next. Been debating if I want to do Devil May Cry, Katana Zero, pick back up Sekiro or a Dark Souls game, or do something else.

Probably Metroid Dread, I'm not really enjoying it but I have this nagging feeling that I should be.

Going to give it one more go and if I can't get.into it this time I'm selling it and going back to playing A Rift Apart and Returnal which I have been enjoying.

u/Pelthail Oct 13 '21

Bummer, I really enjoyed it. I just finished it tonight and it inspired me to start up a file on Metroid Fusion. Then I want to go back into Dread on Hard Mode. What don’t you like about it?

1

u/poppypodlatex Joystick Oct 13 '21

Im not sure, I only ever played Super Metroid before this one so the series doesn't have the same history or nostalgia for me that the Mario games do.

Also I've never been all that keen on the gameplay mechanic of being stalked by an enemy you can't kill, I knew what the EMMIs were from the trailers but I thought I'd give it a go anyway, but the EMMI encounters are such a big part of the game and I'm not having much fun trying to find the best route to escape them by trial and error.

I'm not saying it's a bad game or anything like that, just.saying it might not be for me.

You do end up getting a temporary power to kill the EMMI as you progress through each area. But yeah, I’ve played Metroid games since I was young and love the series. So maybe my experience is a bit biased.

I feel the same way as you. It hasn't really hooked me and it just feels repetitive at times. I don't know if it's because I never really played the original but I'm kinda just slogging through it
