Sorry for still talking about the lawsuit, but what I'm going to say is at least Steam-related ;)

I remember when Valve was (understandably, in my opinion) reluctant to provide all the data that was initially requested for the lawsuit a ton of people on the internet said that all such fears were totally unfounded, lots of internal information is always released in lawsuits, and people who think that it might leak have no idea how these things work.

Lol.

Gonna wait for my friend before redeeming Hellpoint. What I read of possible builds hasn't filled me with much confidence sadly :S but going through it co op is enough for me to play through it.

Finally played the RE8 demos.
I can forgive the lack of options for a demo (the really narrow FOV and absurd vignetting are easy enough to circumvent), I like that it runs really well even on a potato despite looking... fine.

Nice atmosphere, very cozy in its creepiness with some ennemies that are already ultra emblematic of the franchise; it's a game that just looks cool. Unlike swampy Las Plagas redux in RE7.
But it definitely inherited some faults from RE7, it's not much faster (but at least you are not stuck in tiny arenas) and the gunplay still feels like poop. The sound design is again a huge miss, odd when you consider how they nailed it decades ago.
I'm sure the damage and the impact will be a bit different in the complete game, you just have the basic peashooter. But still, disappointing.

I've seen some complaints about writing, can't say I'm too bothered. It's Resident Evil, the poster child of "so bad it's not even good but legendary". And you play as Ethan Whitebread Winters, so of course it's boring and flat.
As long as the game actually makes decent use of its level design and has good bosses, it seems pretty fun.

I use both frequently, but I actually prefer Outlook over Gmail! I didn't think it was possible but they really managed to deliver an intuitive layout with useful features, especially with regards to spam/junk mails.

Also, the less I have on Google the better. It's not like Microsoft is necessarily any better, but I prefer to not have all my data with Google.
For my personal mail, I use Protonmail. But I don't really care about the web interface of it, since I use Thunderbird to actually connect to the mail server. Even the best web interface still feels a decade behind a dedicated app in terms of usability for me. Especially if you want any kind of multi-tasking or interoperability between programs.

Think I'm going to do a first person and third person shooter campaign alternate.

Finished Titanfall 2 so next is probably Recore -> Doom 2016 -> Lost Planet 3 -> Wolfenstein TNC -> Sunset Overdrive -> Doom Eternal

FYI
X3: Farnham's Legacy is out now and free for all owners of X3: Albion Prelude.

I loved the X games. X-2 the threat was one of the games that i first played when i got back into PC gaming after a long spell on consoles.

I didnt really know what i was doing and remember starting the first flight out in space and didnt realise that there was a time compression button so i looked at how long it was going to take me to get to the jump gate and it was like 8 hours or something and i thought that was the game.

Ah fun times.

This is the first no-hesitation monthly in forever for me. Darksiders Genesis, Hellpoint, and Vane are all on my wishlist, I had CSD1+2 so 3 is a win, I played the first Metro but didn't love it enough to pick up the others but for free I'll take a chance at another FPS singleplayer.

I bought some trees today and damn, trees are expensive and they won't even be delivered and planted for another month!

I've been thinking about getting Biomutant this month, but since I spent all my money on the aforementioned trees I think I'm going to go with ME legendary edition since that is less of a gamble.

I'd like some impressions on Vane, as it has Mixed reviews on steam :X
It's Journey, without the genius in level design, and far weirder. I couldn't get into it but it did make for a memorable impression.

I know that doesn't help much but I think the big pain point for me was that the game really doesn't guide you much and it's pretty tedious trial and erroring what is intended level design and what is just you misinterpreting what you may or may not be expected to do.

Edit : Also, MHW is still awesome. I just love how much that game makes me want to explore and look at every little thing. How it makes me wonder what is going to happen as the fauna plays against each other. Carrion birds flocking around carcasses, large mammals rubbing against trees, it's just fantastic.

Also, quite pretty.

So, playing Okami HD. And it's completely fine port, though barebones.
The 30fps lock doesn't bother me as much as I expected, it's probably as smooth 30 as 30 can be. Though I imagine if I kept switching back and forth between it and any game that runs at a higher rate it would become a bigger nuisance.

What's really bugging me is that they didn't do anything to the draw distance. Literally trees and shit popping in few meters away from Amaterasu. :blobweary:

One other thing occurred to me, the run to sprint to even faster sprint instantly reminded me of 2B's run from Automata. I know Platinum is some former Clover people, but looking at the credits there isn't a lot of overlap overall, so I guess it's just kind of fun little thing instead of an actual connection, like the same animators or whatever. Gotta go fast!

posting again for new page:



:blobeyes:
How's the version of the original Flashback that is up on Steam? Is it better or worse than playing the game through REminiscence - Flashback engine reimplementation ? Supposedly has "Completely remastered sound and music", but are they better than the old Amiga mods is the question.


--
I paused humble for now. Money is tight for another week or so, will have to reevaluate then. I only really really want Darksiders (and somewhat want Vane), but I also still haven't played Darksiders 3 which I bought at launch, so I can wait.
