Holy Mother of sweet baby Jesus ! I remember why I don't play JRPG that often while loving the genre.
Octopath Traveler, more like OctoGRIND traveler. Am I right ?

Seriously, grind never really bothered me before, but this is really slow. And hard. And verbose. And long.
Did I mention there was grind in it ?

Games releasing left and right!


Yeah, was suppose to comment on that. Having received so many "new releases" mails the past 2 weeks it's insane. I wanna buy Echoes of the Wild, Bonfire Peaks, Severed Steel and a bunch of others, but there are also sales on games I own and I have yet to really touch Omori, Deathloop, Carto, Ender Lillies, Eastward, Orcs Must Die 3 and a bunch of others that I have installed. My curated backlog collection hasn't been reduced for many weeks.

I have no time for PS5, Switch or game pass (for that matter), need to focus on my Steam games.

Is anyone making the October thread in lashmans absence?

I see he's been tweeting a little :cat-heart-blob:
I guess we'll see if he feels like making one, and if he doesnt, Im sure someone will start it and name it "MetaSteam Oktober 2021 - All hail Anime | Anime Only "Steam" Thread, but pretty much just Anime" or something

~

that efootball cover image of Messi... he just looks miserable. I cant imagine that was deliberate, but its very fitting!

~

Oh cool, the Life Is Strange – True Colours DLC is out... now to finish the main game.... :p

~

thankfully I can restrain myself right now from buying games, but theres not that many one that are interesting to me anyway. In any case, I should just save money for the Deck instead.

If not we can get a basic-bish October OT Thread up ourselves. Make him proud of how much our little group has grownup.

Got any good titles for October Steam? I got nothing.

I see that a lot of the Tales of games are on sale right now. I was thinking of grabbing a few. Any of them are NOT worth playing? For reference, I have only ever finished Symphonia (on the Gamecube like 15 years ago lol), which I remember liking quite a lot.

Welp. I tried to give Melty Blood: Type Lumina a shot during my lunch break.

Game is literally broken. PC version is in fucking shambles.

Trying to connect to a ranked match causes the program to crash. Trying to connect to a player match causes it to freeze. Backing out of certain network mode menus softlocks the game and requires an alt-f4. Game crashes when alt-tabbed in fullscreen. For people who got ranked mode to work, it's apparently region locked by your Steam download region (and for all I know, this could apply to player matches as well).

And here I thought Strive released in a rough state. Yeesh. Probably going to need to refund this until they get their shit together.

I've been hearing good things about this game for those of you who like the old arcade but deep style American Hand-Egg games.


Hunt out some tutorials as there's some nuance to the controls and there are a bunch of team mods on the games' discord too.

think I'll buy this on day one, actually. Played the demo last year ( I think) and ended up getting strong Half Life and Dark vibes from it, and the dev confirmed the game is rather short. Which given my huge backlog and lack of time these days is just chef kiss
Yeah me too, anything that i can complete in 5-10hrs is good for me these days.

Amazon New World folks must be thanking themself for not going Amazon Launcher exclusive or EGS exclusive (if they had that thought) currently 753k playing now on Steam, so a new peak.

We know from the Jason Schreier article that some Amazon employees protested the notion of not going to Steam because not releasing a game on Steam is like not releasing a book on Amazon.

In GreedFall, if there is a check for say Charisma and it says 50%, what does that actually mean? Ive been in one dialogue many times now and it fails every time but at 50% it feels it would succeed as much as fail. I was thinking that maybe the outcome is hardcoded or something? Or I have to have higher charisma?

Wise choice, those employees understood the situation.

I dont recall, but a quick search revealed other people had issues like you, the consensus to overcome the problem: save scumming. :p

On a dumb whim, I purchased New World and have only put a bit of time in. It is okay so far. I need every game releasing in the next few months to take a number and queue up and release only one at a time please :surrenderblob:

Yeah that is what I was trying to do haha, but it didn't seem to work, so I thought maybe it isn't chance at all but a hard check. Then save scumming wouldn't do anything.

You gotta love how football games always have the weirdest/funniest glitches and bugs.

Anyway, so I started playing Outward and I have no idea what I'm doing. All I know is that this video explains perfectly my reaction whenever I get spotted by an enemy

even chickens beat me... and I'd love to be joking but it's true...

Snakethesniper From what i've heard the Hot Wheels Game is pretty damned great apart from some of the potential MTX shenanigans. It's got plenty of content in the base version and as that's £17 from CDKeys some people are even considering getting a Season Pass. I know i'm tempted to get a cheap key for it.

Also UnMetal reminded me of the "Merry Gear Solid" games that The Podunkian did years and years ago.

oh wow, I remember these. was wondering if they were archived anywhere

on the plus side, it's refreshingly queer for a sports game

It's very convenient that all this Halo stuff is happening right now because autumn is always the time when I get Halo cravings anyway.
