Wait, Epic snatched Obisidian's new RPG as an exclusive? Bloody hell. Now I'm annoyed.

 
 
 

I'm so close to my goal of losing 43 kilos and reaching 90kgs, but I've been stuck at 94-95 for the last couple weeks. Curses! Send me some good vibes and moral support, guys.

 
 
 

Whenever I hear an American conservative talk about Norway or Scandinavia I want to scream at the clouds. Depending on who you ask,they're either hellholes not much better than Venezuela or actually prosperous thanks to secretly conservative policies.

 
 
 

An Anthem fan used high level math sorcery to show that loot simply doesn't matter anymore thanks ton the latest patch. In a loot-based game. Bioware responded by pledging to fix it, which strongly suggests his conclusions are correct. What a clusterfuck.

 
 
 

An all-female Italian appeals court panel overturned a rape conviction partially because they considered the woman too ugly to be a credible rape victim. This is not a joke.

 
 
 

How do you guys feel about regulating tech companies, and by extension (to some degree), game companies? I'm ambivalent about it. One one hand, these companies have too much power and clearly can't be trusted. Pretending that they are just like any...

 
 
 

Maybe later twists will change my mind, but ZTD's Eric is easily the most pathetic character I've met in recent memory. Mira,Mira,Mira, Miraaaaa *pukes*

 
 
 
 

Those choices in ZTD's decision game would really put you on edge if you didn't already know you have to see all the outcomes anyways.

 
 
 

Not thrilled about Zero Time Dilemma's non-linear narrative structure. Makes it harder to follow the story without much of an upside. Maybe I'll change my mind once things start falling into place.

 
 
 

Damn, those 3D character models in Zero Time Dilemma are jarring.

 
 
 

A last, Virtue's Last Reward is done. The time on my save is nearly 46 hours, though considering how long I kept the game running while doing something else, actual playtime is probably closer to 30 hours. What a crazy story, but in a good way.

 
 
 

What did you guys play this month? What's your game of the month? I only finished two games this month, 999 and Dying Light. I'm also close to finishing Virtue's Last Reward. My GOTM was Dying Light.

 
 
 

Virtue's Last Reward is significantly longer than I thought. Almost 20 hours, I only saw one ending and I still have a a lot of "squares" on the flowchart to go through. Burnout is starting to creep in.

 
 
 

"Thinking outside the box" is probably the most inside the box thing anybody will ever say.

 
 
 

Virtue'es last reward handles multiple paths far better than 999, but there's still a lot of patience trying repetition, and it's not always clear when it's safe to fast forward without risking missing new information.

 
 
 

35 Kilograms down! Only 7 more to go and Caim will be in near peak shape. These last kilos are hard and go slowly, but I SHALL CONQUER THEM ALL!!

 
 
 

Anyone here plays or has played For Honor? I might give it a shot now that I got it from Plus. My impression is that it's sort of like a team based PVP Dark Souls. Is that the idea?

 
 
 

I came across a "lock" in Virtue's Last Reward. It's not an ending, but progress is interrupted and you're sent back to the beginning to make different choices and possibly unlock that path. Interesting twist.

 
 
 

Very interested in how Trump's Emergency Declaration will play out in the courts. If it somehow survives the court challenges, it will be yet another sign of American institutions and democracy eroding. That's bad for everyone, not just Americans.

 
 
 

It's been almost 7 years since Borderlands 2,and 3 doesn't even have an official announcement yet. The market has changed dramatically since then, people move on. I hope Borderlands 3 kills it, but I fear they might have Duke Nuked themselves.

 
 
 

Breaking: Activisions explains they split with Bungie because Destiny wasn't making enough money. And here I thought it was because it was making so much money Activision felt guilty about it.

 
 
 

THQ Nordic has acquired Kingdom Come's dev, Warhorse. They are on a roll. Hopefully they won't collapse from overexertion.

 
 
 

If Bioware is gunning for some of that Destiny money, I don't blame them (though it seems they're kinda late), but hearing them pitch it as a narrative-driven game much like classic Bioware RPGs, only with friends, it feels like they think we're stupid.

 
 
 

I started Virtue's Last Reward immediately after finishing 999, but I think my brain needs a little break from all that reading and puzzle solving.
