    I just recently bought a few of those EA titles on Origin. And now they're on Steam. Hrm.

    Now they come with Steam trading cards so clearly you must buy them again

    Haha yeah I saw that. Thankfully I don't feel that particular need. For Speed. Trading cards.

    I feel like the baddie, here. The Orcs don't seem particularly bloodthirsty or aggressive. They hold elections for their leader. There's a festival coming up soon and the dude is mostly concerned about some new clothes. The temple apparently belongs to them. Which means we're the invaders, there to pillage and murder.

    no but do it though

    I, uh ... thanks? no u?

    I don't know what that means, or how to respond to it :(

    Just saying that Dark Messiah is still somehow one of my favorite FPS games.

    Is it because you can kick people into things? Or like throw objects at folks and watch them suffer the consequences of taking a barrel to the face? Or is it cause of the varying levels of difficulty thanks to your class? (It's real hard being a warrior at max difficulty) Is it the charmingly kinda not bad but bad story?

    I should play it again.

    yes please

    hopefully it's a souls-like that I not just love, but actually finish, too!

    Bloodborne is definitely my favorite Souls-like

    I am not including Sekiro in that though because I consider it a different enough beast

    I'm going to be so annoyed when the new Elder Scrolls doesn't have an improved Dark Messiah combat system developed by Arkane Studios despite the fact that both they and Bethesda are owned by the same company.

    I love Dark Messiah, even though it's a bit of a trashy game. It's just the perfect mix of RPG and first person shooter style game than I don't think any game has really topped. (They either shooters with some lite RPG elements, or first person RPG's)

    Also that kick is godly.

    I really wish Arkane would make a sequel or spiritual successor. Dishonored is just a completely different thing.

    PiptheFair is saying that yes, we are in agreement that you are the aggressor, the invader, there with the intent - and, perhaps, even the desire! - to do harm. However, Pip is also suggesting that you should put aside your moral compass and go on and do a genocide. If pressed, it's possible that Pip would even go so far as double-dog daring you to do this, although I don't know if we'll reach triple-dog tier.

    Your possible responses are:
    1) "No, this is morally reprehensible! I choose to end the violence." followed by deleting your save and uninstalling the game, or
    2) "Hey, don't mind if I do, gonna kick me some orcs off of things onto other orcs" followed by digital war-crimes.

    Also, spoilers, though if you haven't figured it out by this point, I don't even know. The game is less subtle than a brick.
    You're definitely being set up to be the bad guy.

    I bet it wouldn't be very hard to get Ubisoft to them use the license.

    Dark Messiah

    current mood: very annoyed at goblins. Each time I thought I had cleared the area, more popped up. And then a couple of them ran into a hole in the wall, at which point
    a cyclops broke through the wall and I received the optional objective of killing it. So I did.

    I'm a bit miffed that, after letting/requiring me to use the environment to kill a dragon, this cyclops refused to follow me into a trapped corridor.

    I thought of this momentarily while I was typing it, sadly.

    I'm gonna be honest these posts are a little bit making me want to replay Dark Messiah

    New Humble Choice is up, another paused month for me. That really went downhill when they switched from the Monthly format. I want to say Hellblade, as the highlight, has been in a Monthly before?

    Not a new release, but in PC Gaming news relevant to my interests, a free patch hit the Sims 4 that adds ladders. I don't know why they weren't included in the Tiny Living pack, but I'm super excited to build true loft spaces.

    And since it's 2020, sims now piss fire.

    Twitch's monthly content looks pretty good.

    I haven't played them but I've heard good stuff about, Observer, Dream Daddy and Flame in the Flood.
