    Replaced my laptop this week so I’m finally getting a chance to get through Fallout 4. It used to be that if I even looked towards the general direction of Diamond City, the frame rate would drop down to a point where snails outpaced it. But now, ah, so much fun! I love my sniper build!

    I am having a really hard time deciding what to pick up. I've missed out on some great games: Nier Automata, Divinity 2 and Horizon: Zero Dawn. And there is also Kingdom Come Deliverance that I could pick up.

    Then again, I am currently playing Witcher 3, trying to do every quest this time! And I've never picked up the big Add-On, which just as great as the main game when you believe the reviews.

    Decisions, decisions...

    Can't help with D2 or KCD. Haven't played either.

    Between HZD and NA however I would recommend NA. It was a fun game to play.....although remember, ending E is the true ending.

    Highly recommend Monster Hunter World. Not gonna lie, it's a pretty big time sink, but you'll enjoy every second of it.

    I have that one already and I love my hammer hunter :D...but I only play it from time to time when my "tribe" is online and we can go on a hunt together :D. I somehow feel that this game is made to be played co op, because it's so much more fun. I only play it alone when I have to catch up because my friends have higher hunter levels.

    I am more interested in a good single player solo game that has an awesome story right now. I'm a fan of old school rpg's but I fear that when I pick up Divinity Original Sin 2 it will be the same as with Baldurs Gate 2. It took me years to finish it just because I started all over again and again with a different character, even erasing the previous savegames because I thought the character wasn't good enough... it's a really weird approach to play games :D

    Maybe Nier Automata really is the way to go for me :)

    Nice. I know most of them (love Gothic II, especially with the AddOn), but some of them I've never heard about. I'm not sure that Hotline Miami deserves the tag "awesome story". Sure, it fits the game very well and isn't bad at all, but I think it's the fun gameplay plus the awesome soundtrack who make it a great game.

    Playing Kingdom Come Deliverance right now and I love it.

    Not the big hero, just a small peasant who's not even capable of swinging a sword. And not becoming a big hero, but a small peasant who's finally able to swing a sword is a quite enjoyable experience :).

    Go back and play some old games you might not have tried. I know most folks have played Castlevania Symphony of the Night, but the other IGAvania games in the series are just as amazing. Aria of Sorrow, Order of Ecclesia, Circle of the Moon. Recommend trying them out if you haven't played them before. Aria in particular is by far my favourite Castlevania game in the series and a must play for anyone who has ever owned a GBA and/or has any interest in emulation.

    If you haven't played it already, Persona 5 is one of the best JRPGs to come out in years and polishes the series formula to a mirror sheen with the most stylish, impeccable UI I've ever seen in a video game. I shit you not, if ever the word "UI Porn" was applicable then Persona 5's UI is the dictionary fucking definition.

    I've just read an article about Persona 5 and I'm hooked. Do I need any knowledge about the older Persona Games or can I jump right into it with 5?

    No prior knowledge required at all. Each game's story (with the exception of Persona 2 Innocent Sin and Persona 2 Eternal Punishment which are set one after the other) is self-contained. There's no need to worry about missing out on any important story details because you didn't play any of the older games.

    Space Engineers... I don't know why I go back to it sometimes with how directionless the developers are since the head of the project team has invested all his time and energy into developing AI.

    Currently focusing on 2 games.
    1- Nioh. Finding the game quite fun. Getting the hang of fighting some of the bosses.....they are going to get more difficult though.
    2- Digimon Cyber Sleuth. A pretty fun game to play. Some of the cases you getting working as a detective are interesting.

    OpFor is the only one that approaches (exceeds, even) the original imo. It was by far my favourite, though the original was amazing too. It also had far better multiplayer.

    A very rare case where an internet petition showing interest actually did something.

    That said, I'm currently playing through the sequel which recently came over. Both are quite fun, but localization is iffy, and the first game has 6+ unwinnable fights. Nothing beats throwing auto battle on and waiting for some weak ass ultimate to finally kill your party of megas so the plot can continue.

    Which fights? Are they the DLC fights? Those are the only ones I have difficulties with.....well that and the hardest Arena ranking fights. Luckily it's all side content.....would have been quite annoyed if the main quest was as difficult as these hard side bosses/fights.

    And I really need to get the sequel of Digimon: Cyber Sleuth. Just waiting for the game to become cheaper.

    Although from the summary I thought it was a parallel story, not a sequel?

    Nope, dlc is just difficult. The demonlords are doable on hard, but Lucemon FM is a major pain. Stupid magical bullshitOP enemy-only skills... The reward is
    an exclusive digimon
    . But any and all missables in the first game are freely available in the sequel.

    The unnwinable fights were peppered throughout the main game, but there was only 1-2 instances where I thought I could win, but the enemy was locked at 1 HP. Most just end after a while with a special insta-kill.
    That seems to be the case. I meant sequel in a meta sense, given the game being the next entry in the series. If you enjoyed the first, you should enjoy the sequel. Besides the obvious more digimon and areas still no MaloMyotismon though *gumble grumble*, there's a new hack "Accelerate" that lets you move 3x normal speed, which is incredibly convenient. There's also some carry-over bonuses if you cleared the first one. The exclusive pre-order digimon from the first game are also no longer locked if they were before.
