Starting Pillars of Eternity 2. It's been 5 years since I played PoE 1 and I forgot much, the idea was to replay it, but I quickly realized that wasn't realistic if I wanted to actually play the sequel anytime soon. Any Pillars fans here? Is 2 worth it?

 
 

I've been watching Star Trek Picard. Is it just me, or does it look a lot like Mass Effect?

 
 

Just starting Tyranny with a two-handed primary combat specialization and ranged as secondary. Any fans of the game around here? Anything I should watch out for while building the character?

 
 

Finished Dishonored 2 as low Chaos Emily. Pretty good. Is Death of the Outsider worth it? I really liked Dishonored 2, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to jump back in right away for more of the same, assuming it's more of the same.

 
 

Happy to report that, while Prey may have disappointed me, Dishonored 2 hooked me from the very beginning. Playing as Emily,as the story seemed tailored for her and I'd already played Corvo in the first game, though I kinda miss blink.

 
 

Prey isn't quite what I expected, and not in a good way. I can see the appeal, but I expected something that combined an engaging world with cool combat, like BioShock or Dishonored. Unfortunately the combat is awful and the enemies are even worse.

 
 

Hello guys. Haven't been here in a while. How's everyone doing? What's New and interesting in the world of videogames? I have some catching up to do.

 
 

If I've never watched Star Trek and want to see if I like it, where do I start? There are seemingly dozens of series and movies.

 
 

Who among you fine folks played Ni No Kuni 2? Is it worth the time investment?

 
 

Is there any argument in favor of abolishing the police that properly lays out how that would work in practice beyond offering fantasies and platitudes like "more collaboration, less individualism"?

 
 

Avatar The Legend of Aang is pretty good. Kind of a shame it's trapped in a morning cartoon.

 
 

What did you guys play in May and what was your favorite? It was an atypical gaming month for me, I only finished one single player game, Quantum Break, and mostly played Magic Arena. I hadn't played Magic in ages, then I found Arena and was hooked again.

 
 
 

Anyone likes Yooka Laylee here? I tried it, but the controls felt off, kind of floaty. Should I give it another chance to see if it clicks, or what you see in the opening section is what you get?

 
 

The news that the Dark Souls series is closing in on 30 million sales reminded me of when Atlus brought Demon's Souls to the West but only ordered 50k copies at fist out of concern there would be little demand. Now I feel old.

 
 

Much to my surprise, I'm addicted to Magic Arena. I haven't touched any other game in over two weeks. I can't even remember the last time a non-single player game took over my life like this. Not that I mind, if there was ever a time for that, it's now.

 
 

Sheesh, I go away for a week and suddenly everyone is having unpopular opinions.

 
 

Anyone here plays Magic Arena and wants to cast spells together? And by "together" I mean in each other's faces. I started a few days ago and I'm hooked.

 
 

Took me 5 tries to win my very first Crash Team Racing race on medium difficulty. Damn. I've either lost all my gaming mojo in my old age or this is no Mario Kart. Or both.

 
 

Nioh mapping interact to circle and dash/dodge to X is doing a number on my brain.

 
 

This is probably silly, but knowing that The Evil Within 2 is basically set in a VR world, even if the stakes are real, makes it feel less compelling to me, like I'm playing a game inside a game, and I never liked theses kinds of settings.

 
 

Went back to Luigi's Mansion 3 after Three Houses, but I just feel no desire to keep going. I've played 8 floors, and like the previous games, it's a fun novelty that wears out fast. I wish I could see what so many people like so much about this series.

 
 

Finished FE Three Houses. My heart is stil racing. Let's talk about it! Major spoilers, obviously.

 
 

Am I missing something, or the weight mechanic means iron weapons are often the best weapons throughout the game in Three Houses?

 
 

Things I'm learning with FE Three Houses: war makes everyone way more stylish.

 
 
 
 
 

I never imagined a Fire Emblem game in which battles play second fiddle to exploration and tea. It's even more surprising that it works as well as it does.

 
 

Wait, Fire Emblem 3 Houses has no weapon triangle?? What sort of mad heresy is this?!?
