Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I would prefer my games to have graphics settings that descended to "cardboard boxes with airbrushed art."

    Looking at the previews of turok 2, I'm in awe of the number of options

    I know what you won't be doing: Running around in ME:Andromeda. You'll either be playing Nier Automata or tweaking things in the ME character creator the whole day.

    It's the kind of premise that screamed for a sandbox game but we got a pretty tightly scripted one instead.

    Plus the system that made you less inclined to send your henchmen against superagents because your henchmen could be permanently killed while the agents would return later if you hadn't unlocked their elimination project.

    Elixer's other game, Republic: The Revolution, also suffered from the great sandbox premise hemmed in by scripted scenario problem.

    I remember reading someone's account of a time the James Bond agent set off a chain reaction of chaos when he came across the other captured super agents and freed them. The Bruce Lee dude was mowing down minions left and right, Bond kept disrupting infrastructure, and then Rambo decided he'd help out by planting explosives on a vending machine.

    It also had the problem where all of the fun stuff, the crazy traps to take care of snoopers, just made the game harder and unfun because it would raise your heat and they'd keep sending more and more armed squads after you. The best way to play was to just have an army of bellhops who made tourists forget what they were doing.

    I really appreciate the sound that comes out of Max's shotgun in Mad Max. It's the kind of thing you don't fire very often in the early game due to lack of ammo, and it has quite an impact.

    Unrelated, but I dove in and preordered that Square Enix "Spring Surprise Box". I guess I'm a sucker for mystery boxes since I'm also subscribed to the Humble Monthly for the next few months.

    So, I've gotten further into Dragon's Dogma, and while the game gives you plenty of information directly (much more than say Dark Souls), there are some world specific conceits that you only get if you really chat up everyone and read things. One of the biggest things I've surmised with this info (very possibly spoilers if I'm right):
    I don't think the Duke actually killed his dragon. I'm not sure how he survived, but the math doesn't add up. He's too old for a normal human, and too new to have been the one to kill the dragon 1000 years ago as the Dragonforged mentioned.
    It's little things like this that make me interested in knowing what else is down the road, as it were.

    I remember it being glitch filled as well and having to hack my save file to progress post the second research goal.

    Setting up strings of disorienting traps was satisfying (until they caught fire).

    But I could never get casinos running properly.

    Setting up torture capable objects in open rooms to buff as many passing minions as possible was a delight, though.

    The key to most of the superagents was social minions.

    Keep them mentally discombobulated until they left, or until they got so dumb you could shove them in the mindwipe machine.

    Or just keep three of those big zombie dudes on hand at all times.

    -edit-

    Yeah the casinos never really lived up to their potential. They never kept the enemy agents distracted enough, it just led to chaos when someone got triggered and started shooting. Also led to a giant parade of minions walking in and out of the actual base.

    Which lead to more bodies, which lead to more heat, and manually moving the bodybags to the acid pits.

    Wasn't there an option with a cloning tank and faking your death?

    Should have been able to clone those dead tourists and send them home to die of a night of drunken revelry, or catch bullets from super agents.

    Welp, had a 25% off for Turok 2 in the ol' inventory. Even though it only makes the game $11.24, applying two 25% reductions in sequence instead of adding both to equal 50%, that's still too good a deal to pass up. Although with my internet down, I can't play the game tonight even if I wanted to. I'm sure I'll get around to it eventually.

    Also completely gave up on Vanguard Princess. I'm just rubbish at fighting games, and I can't get past the first real opponents on easy with an OP character (I said OP, not oppai! Although I suppose it's often both with that game.)

    Social minions were key but I actually got the most out of trickery combined with the social minions. Investigators would always prioritize a high security door if they saw one regardless of what it led to. So I had multiple tunnels carved out around my lair that had maximum security doors that had nothing behind them except more maximum security doors until either a disorienting trap or just a dead end. Nothing for agents to shoot at in the latter case while the former was more effective against mook investigators. Eventually they'd run out of time on the island and leave after having done nothing but open 3 or 4 doors.
