For the first time, follow the untold story of Gollum: an experience that stays incredibly faithful to the books.

Woo new thread.



Yikes at the PS5 Jedi resolution and performance.
It's almost like the game shipped unfinished everywhere. :thinking-face:

I'll eventually play it, I liked Fallen Order well enough. Definitely deep discount though.
Kind of too bad that the writing on the main guy was kind of boring, almost everyone else in the first game was more interesting than him. Make a game with the space witch instead, I'll play that.
 
Reason: you may have seen the content of this post in the old thread. it's a trick of the eye, magic, even

Thanks for the thread :cat-heart-blob:

As a big CSD fan, I wasn't really convinced by Cook Serve Forever's demo. Hoping that some post-release footage may change my mind but it just plays like a boring 4K rhythm game without the rhythm part.

Probably gonna pick up KILLBUG this week, also interested in Humanity (missed the demo though) and Firmament.

As a follow up to this (Unsure if I can quote a post from another segment of the forums), I did get accepted into the private beta test for Mary Skelter Finale. Should be starting tomorrow afternoon. While I'm doubtful much can be done at this point of time, I'm remaining somewhat hopeful (As IFI is conducting the test this time around, and I've had some luck with some decisions being reversed with one of the tests in particular), and I'll hopefully make sure the feedback doesn't fall on deaf ears. At least the feedback and reports won't need to be translated to Japanese this time around, so hopefully explanation towards more specific technical explanations won't be lost in translation.

Sadly enough, from what I've spoken to with some people (especially on the Steam forums or other online communities), they really don't care, despite the seemingly positive reception I've had many people put towards my port report of the second game, which is a shame (Apparently some people actually look forward to my game reviews and ask if I have a personal blog for similar topics). I would consider putting together an outlet of sorts for putting together reviews and that kind of stuff, but that comes with the territory of stuff like server hosting, HTML/CSS, and a lot of other things that I don't really have much experience in.

I probably won't be able to speak about some things until release though.
 
Reason: Some extra details regarding how my feelings are initially.

I recently played through the Titanfall 2 campaign, and it was excelent. Almost never a dull moment and each chapter introduces new mechanics to play around with.

Effect and Cause is one of the standing moments in the game alongside The Beacon and The Ark.

Also been playing some Northstar multiplayer, and Gun Game in Titanfall 2 is really enjoyable, especially with bonkers speed and momentum adjustments that make it feel more like Quake in terms of movement.

I'm in, baby!
I am actually really enjoying playing Final Fantasy XV...I have to restart it since I just bought it on PC after getting it for like 3 bucks for PS4 and putting in around 6 hours...My partner has pretty much held the PS5 for ransom so i haven't been able to play (honestly just don't want to keep switching discs hahaha). and I just bought and am looking forward to playing Weird West!

I’m playing far too many long games and dreading the possible drops in the list.
Why yes, I‘m already playing P5R, Paranormasight, Shadows of Valentia, Stranger of Paradise, I tote can add Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Honkai StarRail and Genshin Impact.

It’s Xenoblade that scares me, I already put a decent time into it but I was in a low interest ‘valley’ in the plot curve.

Cheers for the new thread Mor .

For me, definitely boltgun. Maybe an Etrian Odyssey. But grabbed four or five games last month and still need to get around to them.

I promise I will be more positive this month…

I continue to be baffled why Redfall exists. Why use Arcane for such a soulless take on a genre that's already overcrowded? God, I hope Arcane can somehow free itself from Zenimax and get Microsoft to fund it to do more immersive sims. Especially with the gamepass model, it's no longer so critical about how much something sells, but what it offers to the overall library on there, and I doubt something like Redfall will make much of a splash there, compared to a Dishonored or Prey sequel.

This month i will try to finish some of the games i started. I started L.A. Noire, TLoU, Jedi Survivor, Observation, Thronebreaker... I think that i can at least finish L.A. Noire (i am like half way through the game) and TLoU (if nest patch or two is significant). I will wait for Jedi Survivor to get in better shape.

Started up Ni No Kuni 2 and cheated my way to chapter 3. Letdown in every aspect from the previous game. So far I have found the firsat game to have a much better story, more interesting characters, better world and really dissapointed that they went away with the turn based combat system that I found a lot of fun and went with a standard action rpg system which is also really basic and boring.

I played and finished Wrath of the White Witch on my PS3 years ago and liked it enough that I rebought the Remastered on Steam. One of my favorite JRPGs of all time.

I'll see what I do with the game and how far cheating can carry the game for me.

I'm playing Honkai Star Rail and so far I'm finding the combat interesting. Thinking about which character I will bring to a fight, and what abilities may or may not synergize between them is hitting all the rights spots on my [strike]monkey[/strike]

Will i keep playing it? I don't know but I usually stop playing gachas after some time.

Also i got 3 day ban for making fun of Epic Store Reviews in Jedi PC Performance thread on Era XD
Lol I got a 3 day ban for justifying piracy awhile ago saying if Nintendo is unhappy piracy exists on PC they should sell their games on PC so people have a legal way to play them on the platform. Era is full of shitty moderation and it always has been.
