Re: Describe the least-appealing game

-You play as a masked, voiceless figure indistinguishable from a typical henchman. -On your way to the first mission, you accidentally trigger and get trapped in a 10-hour side-quest which later turns out to be a DLC. -Every mini-game is a "Simon Says" puzzle where you memorize ever-longer sequences...

As to what happened..
They were actually slated for a series of original releases these last few years, but most got pushed to 2020 and 2021. It might be that the Fox buy-out and the development of Disney+ changed their schedule.

Re: A question - and a little fun...

Wouldn't that make every Star Trek movie past the first a cash grab? Every Star Wars movie past A New Hope? If you define any sequel or guaranteed money-maker as a "cash grab", that's fair. It's always easier to greenlight a movie when it's part of a successful brand. And there's nothing wrong with...

Re: A question - and a little fun...

Oh, I am only explaining my take on what Disney's doing. I could be wrong. It could be a blatant cash grab. Oh, it is 100% a cash grab. These have all been beat-for-beat remakes with a couple new songs and some plot extensions tossed in. They've offered little to no fresh takes on the original stor...

Re: Question about "The Witcher"...

Oh, dear ... and they all met in the pub!!! :lol: Or does the witcher only meet them when it's time for them to become relevant to the story? :? Typically, both. They appear when it's story-relevant, and you'll often run into them at a pub. A good example is a character named Dandelion. In the book...

Re: Question about "The Witcher"...

A lot of events and choices in the first game don't carry over to the second. Anything important will get revisited and shown again. You can read a summary somewhere if you want the details, but it's still a great game worth visiting. One thing that might throw you off in the second game are all the...

Re: Question about "The Witcher"...

They're worth playing if you like fantasy role-playing. The gameplay is generally hack-and-slash, with a few gimmicks like potion mixing and magic systems built in. But the overall experience is more "Dragon Age" than "Diablo". It's very story-oriented, with a lot of morality choices built into the ...

Re: What are you playing now?

Datadog ... box pushing puzzles? What do you mean? :? BS3 uses 3D controls, so they included a few platforming, stealth and box pushing segments similar to other 3D games of its era. It's still an adventure game, but those segments might be off-putting if you're expecting a similar experience to BS...

Re: Steam and GOG sales

Epic Games is now giving away TWO free games a week, it seems. At least, for the next couple weeks they are. This week, they're giving away "Moonlighter" and "This War of Mine", while next week it's "Alan Wake" and "For Honor". Haven't played three of those, though I've heard good things. But I wil...

Re: What are you playing now?

I've been on a Tomb Raider kick lately. Recently finished Underworld and I'm on the last level of Anniversary . Been 10 years or so since I first played them, so I'd forgotten enough to make them seem like new again. Nice! I grabbed the Legend/Anniversary/Underworld trilogy from Steam last year ($1...

Re: What are you playing now?

$20 for FFVII is worth it. To have it be portable and easy even better! Throw another... whatever 60? ... games on there, bonus. A portable FF7 is definitely worth $20. I've previously bought it for PS1, PC, and PS3 digital, and it still feels like a fulfilling way to spend 60+ hours in front of a ...

Re: What are you playing now?

I didn't pick up anything for this year's summer sales, so I dug into my backlog for a summer RPG and tried out "Alpha Protocol". And for a game I've barely heard of, I REALLY liked it! It's a "tactical espionage RPG", similar to "Mass Effect", but with the pastiche of a globe-trotting "Mission Impo...

I would think she would have to go back? Because if she doesn't go back, t hen she doesn't die "for Thanos" to get the Soul Gem . Which I would think, further make a mess of the time line. :) Warning: Me overthinking time travel is about to happen. [Overthinking] When both Nebulas "collide" in 2014...

Re: Avengers: EndGame [Spoilers]

How in Hades did you avoid spoilers for so long? I stopped visiting most of the internet. The only spoiler that sneaked through was the nano-gauntlet they use to house the Infinity Stones , and that was because of a toy commercial. Otherwise, Steve Rogers kissed his own daughter in Captain America:...
