    Games Discussion/What Are You Playing?

    ...so...yeah, okay, I made the thread. ...because games. All kinds of games...yep.


    Still currently playing: World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, TERA, DC Universe Online, and a few others.... Mainly focusing on WoW since me and the hubby started up our accounts again together.

    I've also broke down and decided to try Pangya.

    Devil May Cry 5 is superb. I think it's the best devil may cry game and has quickly become my favourite. It is also an unabashed love letter to the series. There are lots of little nods to previous games, especially in boss design.
    If you liked any of the previous games, or enjoyed bayonetta or the older God of War games you'll almost certainly enjoy it.

    Also the soundtrack is brilliant

    I'm considering getting Devil May Cry 5 - not just for the positive reviews, but also on the strength of its soundtrack.

    To those of you who have played it: Is it a good action game?

    I beat This Is The Police 2. It's decidedly darker than This Is The Police 1 - which is saying a lot. After so much concentrated noir, I'm looking for more positive play experiences.

    I wish they would stick to releasing games for free on the Epic store in lieu of also exploiting timed exclusives. Like, I'm on the Epic store because of Subnautica, but now I've also got Oxenfree, The Witness, and...something else.

Games thus far include Metro: Exodus, The Outer Worlds, and now the PC version of Borderlands 3. People not liking having to move to a newer, more inferior service.
    In this case, it was Anno 1800. It's already such a niche series (the games are only really popular in Germany), I can't imagine it will benefit with this move.

    Like...if you want to tie your game to some storefront because they gave you a payoff, do that from the beginning. Don't do this bait-and-switch crap.

    I haven't used the Epic Game Store yet, but I expect I will because I backed Phoenix Point on Kickstarter and also want to play Hades, Borderlands 3, The Outer Worlds, and Metro Exodus.

    I'm prepared to give it the benefit of the doubt, mostly because the other services I've used all have one of two problems:
    1. They're shills for a specific publisher (e.g. Origin, UPlay).
    2. They're bloated with games I have no interest in and the filtering system is only slightly better than nothing (Steam, Humble, GOG)

    EGS doesn't have the first problem, and for now there aren't enough titles on it for the second problem to be a concern.

    As for me - I'm playing This is the Police 2. It's like This is the Police 1, but more mechanically complicated and you're forced into doing some pretty shady stuff very early on.

    I have mixed feelings about the new tactical battle system. On the one hand, it's pretty satisfying to have 1-6 officers stealthily take down a gang many times their size. On the other, it's impossible to know what kind of situation you're going to face in a raid before you send officers there, which makes it troublesome to know who you should send.

    And, like I did in the first game, I have a tendency to reload a day over and over again until I have it "right" to my satisfaction. This makes the game longer than I think it needs to be, but it's the only way I know to combat the unstable equilibrium the game has where small failures rapidly compound themselves into a crisis if you let them.

    Currently designing my own OSR game inspired by Dracula and other classic horror monsters and I'm really excited.

    it's intended to be an alternative to World of Darkness, and is explicitly focused on dark adventure, action-horror (not personal horror) and epic stories and campaigns. It is based on the mechanics of Swords & Wizardry, and is intended to work with Medieval, Victorian, and Modern settings.

    Playable character classes include five human classes (Fighter, Mage, Cleric, Magical Girl, Ninja) and five supernatural classes (Vampire, Werewolf, Ghost, Elf, and Mummy)

    It is a Gothic game in the literary sense, but not in the sense of the modern subculture and is firmly Anti-Punk.

    Basically, I am tired of being told to play "Some Other Game" and there being no real alternative to World of Darkness.

    After all, if you want something done your way, sometimes you have to do it yourself.
