    well

    your base could be a spaceship

    That's what I want. I want a big capital ship to be able to park my smaller ship in.

    Give me a bunch of rooms where I can display animals and plants and rocks and shit that I've scanned.

    Anyone want a 50% off code for blood bowl 2 or a code for some free skins for the game? They came with my physical copy.

    I'd take the 50% off code if you still have it.

    I got this new roller coaster park game. I have very little idea what I'm doing. It seems neat though.

    Having played and seen a fair bit of both Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny, I feel confident in saying that Obsidian are really bad at coming up with cool proper nouns

    They need to get whatever genius works at Bungie over for a consulting session because Kyros and Eder and The Disfavored are some seriously unmemorable nonsense-ass fantasy names. That's some Kingdoms of Amalur type shit

    Nothing on the scope of WARMIND or COVENANT

    Man I totally disagree

    Like, Kyros isn't great, I'll admit, and Eder wouldn't be that memorable if not for being the best

    But these are also games with characters named Grieving Mother and The Devil of Caroc and Graven Ashe and The Voices of Nerat

    They're not all winners, sure, but there's some great fantasy names in there

  • JarsJars Registered User regular
    I never got grieving mother's thing. probably because she vanished into the ether after I killed some kid to power myself up

    I never got into bungie world building until I read the book of sorrows from destiny.

    Holy shit it is so up my alley.

    Grieving Mother had one of my favorite stories in Pillars, and her whole thing is super cool. Her and Eder are the best characters by a pretty long shot (although everyone was pretty well done, I'd say - Hiravias and Kana Rua were kind of bland, but not strictly bad either).

    my preference for no man's sky would be to make it so you could deploy some kind of warp gate in systems you've explored

    so you can build your territory out and come back to planets where you build things on

    Yeah, I almost always play games like Minecraft and Terraria and Starbound alone. I just like building stuff for myself, I don't give a shit if anyone else sees it. If I really want someone to see my masterpiece I can always post screenshots of it online.

    I played with Lego alone a lot as a kid too, and rarely showed my grandparents what I'd made either, so it's just how I've always been.

    Started downloading the special edition of Secret of Monkey Island. Hoping I don't remember too many of the puzzles.

    According to the download speeds Steam is currently getting, I have between 4 and 56 days to try and forget all of them.

    MP stuff almost always has a competitive element and I am extremely non-competitive so I have always been more of a loner when it comes to videogames. And I love building stuff.

    See, I love competitive games like Counter-Strike and Battlefield, and I also really like co-op games like Warframe and Killing Floor. It's just the sandbox games with a focus on building things where I choose to be completely alone.

    I had a lot of fun with ME3 MP, and I have putzed around a bit in L4D and Halo with friends, but generally I feel too much paranoia about judgement for being shit to enjoy multiplayer stuff. Which is a shame cos there are some really cool looking MP games out there.

    Grieving Mother is a good character, but if I were trapped in the world of PoE, I'd probably just hang out with Eder and Zahua and go on acid trip adventures.

    If you wanna run Quake on a modern machine I really recommend downloading quakespasm, or nquake if you plan on doing some multiplayer. There's actually a really good steam guide on the multitude of source ports out there and if you want you can make this game look real crazy.

    The mechanical benefit of base building in fallout 4 was building a fun place for all the dolls in your collection NPCs in your town to safely live and work and generate resources for you

    edit it was fun and definitely more interesting than finding your dumb lost baby

    Seeing as I have FF15 coming soon, I decided to strictly limit my sale budget this time to around $15.

    Eventually settled on Primordia and Abzu. I had somehow totally forgotten that the developers who made Flower had come out with another game, despite Flower being one of my absolute favorite PS3 games.

    DX9 version runs better than DX11 version regardless of how good/bad your computer is.

    Also, if you do have a good computer, you don't want any of the graphical sliders turned all the way up to max. Having them just before max gives you much better performance.

    Yeah, they made Journey

    (To be technical, the only person from Flower on Abzu is the Art Director - the designers on Flower were a part of thatgamecompany, which went on to do Journey)
