Ok nevermind. I'll never finish it. It'll take me 50 years to complete a 100 hour game. Heck even 20 hours feels like an eternity lol102 hours. Main game + 2 expansions. Didn't compete all of the side quests so could have gone longer. Might finish them up but also want to start playing something else.
Been playing through GT4 recently. Somehow the AI is better in that 18 year old game than this new game. Online in GT7 is still fun, at least.
I put... 150 hours into GT1, 200 into GT2, and a whopping 400 or so into GT3. Fuck I loved that game. I started GT4, but by that point I was burned out (and could finally afford fast cars of my own). Was seriously considering getting 7 to get back into it again, but thanks for letting us know.I only ever had GT3, I am glad I am not a fan of GT otherwise I would be disappointed. Micro transactions and blocking cars behind grinding? Not for me.
ROFL.M76 overexaggerates. The only microtransactions are buying game credits with real money, and you don't need to grind unless you want to buy every legendary car the second they appear in the dealership.
Worth it? Innocence was a surprising hit for me, as I literally knew nothing, clicked install (steam sale?), and lost a good 15-20 hours into it. One of the few times I've been tempted to buy something at release.Finished Plague Tale 2. Hot damn/10.
It's GoW - folks go gaga over it. I played 1 (fun!), most of 2 (got bored... says something), started 3... and never picked it up again.That too was me. The praise this game got was so high, with many people claiming it was one of the best games in years. I was skeptical before playing it myself. Horizon Zero Dawn blows it away. Mainly in that the story had so much more depth and two layers (the here & now and the past cause & affect). So much more lore to. Gameplay was more sophisticated as well.
I was thinking it was Sony fans praising GoW so much, but even if they were surely they'd see how much better HZD was?
Don’t do gamepass, as I don’t have an Xbox - but I’ll snag it. I need something since bloody poop was a failure. I did buy into PlayStation plus for it - probably cancel that now too.Plague Tale 2 was totally worth it. Free on gamepass as well.

I've been stuck on the third mission of this game for YEARS. I just can't seem to play the game rightMGS 5. Amazing gameplay, tons of content, minimal/incomplete story
Why? Did they change the game since launch? The legendary cars were on a rotation and you kind of had to buy them the moment they appeared to not miss them. And even if you don't have to deal with FOMO anymore, the only way you could get that kind of credits is by grinding or spending real money.M76 overexaggerates.

Nadine is more than a match for Sam and Nathan who have no military training in tactics, hand to hand or martial arts ...from the Uncharted Wiki:... so are you going to add anything to the discussion?
But since you brought up M76's review of Uncharted The Lost Legacy, I would like to point out the Tomb Raider reboot (2013 / Rise / Shadow) are copies of Uncharted, not the other way around. But even then they are not exactly the same. Tomb Raider has a crafting and survival aspect which is entirely absent in Uncharted. Uncharted focuses more on characters, with a lot more dialogue. Tomb Raider's characters on the other hand are entirely forgettable. I had to google the one returning character just now to remember who he was, Jonah. They essentially show up at the start and end of the games and disappear until the end. Uncharted 4 has better written characters with a lot more reflection on past relationships, where they are going in life, and a more genuine desire to find something (the treasure/city) in game.
It sounds like he only played Lost Legacy, which is a standalone DLC for the main game. In which case I would also find the story to be more underwhelming. I found the characters in that to be less interesting than Drake of course. The only "woke" thing I found of note in both Uncharted 4 and LL was Nadine, who comically beats up Drake. We know in reality, Drake would have easily beat her down with little issue. Not only that but she takes on both Drake and Sam... and beats them. Which is a bit comical. But that is the only "woke" thing I can think of through both U4 and LL.
Sam and Nate:
Ross is an excellent charismatic leader, military tactics, guerrilla warfare and mercenary, being the former leader of Shoreline beforehand. Ross is just as effective both physically and mentally, both being praised by Asav and Chloe Frazer. She is exceptionally intelligent, thinking fast and acting fast when necessary, although, unlike other mercenaries, she controls her ambition, and Frazer tells her that she learns fast, being a good treasure hunter.
Ross is also a highly qualified sniper. She is an accomplished, effective, and dangerous martial artist who excels in hand to hand combat, easily being able to hold her own against both Nate and Sam at once, both of whom are significantly bulkier than her in appearance, and other opponents efficiently. However, in the final battle of The Lost Legacy and during the game, she is nearly overpowered by Asav, the main villain of the game
Much like Nate, he is a competent marksman, climber, and brawler. It is possible that he trained his brother in fighting and brawling as hinted through dialogue when fighting Gustavo and fellow prisoners in the Panamanian jail, as well as in free-running and climbing. Due to spending most of his imprisoned life exercising, he is in excellent physical condition.
He is a talented thief; Nate refers to Sam as the best pickpocket out of both himself and Sully.
Sam is at least as intelligent as his brother, as he has a vast knowledge of pirate history, and is capable of speaking in at least Latin and Portuguese.
He is an adept motorcyclist.

Sam and Nate:
A man is still faster and stronger then a woman of the same size. Nathan is not some push over you know. He been fighting hand to hand with other bigger trained male military personnel for ages before the 4th game.Nadine is more than a match for Sam and Nathan who have no military training in tactics, hand to hand or martial arts ...from the Uncharted Wiki:

I was just making a point that Nadine wasn't just your typical "woke" woman combatant as Flogger made her out to be.A man is still faster and stronger then a woman of the same size.

What about elden ring? Is it just over hyped like blood borne? I've held off buying until it's super cheap and I don't really have time to finish 25 hr game unless it hooks me hardBloodborne. aka, I have diarrhea and cannot find a toilet, the ebola version. With AIDS.
If this is what made GOTY in 2015, I now understand why I quit playing console games. This is a mediocre hack-and-slash with a punishing method of leveling, absurd amounts of repetition, an unstable frame rate (25 FPS might have been fine for Ocarina of Time, but it was 2015 - do better), completely missing story (go read the lore in the inventory - on a fucking PEBBLE), buggy controls and camera, and merely ok combat. I wouldn't waste my time unless you enjoy hitting your testicles (or ovaries - I don't judge) with a hammer. Repeatedly. For FUN.
Mediocre in every single possible way. There is nothing of value to this game outside of the art, and FromSoft should be embarrassed. Hell, as far as I can tell, it doesn't even have MUSIC. (Yes, I know it does - outside of a cut scene I couldn't tell you a single time I heard it). I threw the disc like a frisbee into the 5 acre back yard and will deny I ever wasted any of my short short life on this disaster of a game. Couldn't finish it. Won't finish it. Would rather be stuck playing super mario bros if I'm going to just beat the same guys over and over again - at least that had a soundtrack I remember.
D-. Seriously, play a real hack-and-slash. Any of them. Or pray it gets ported like most other FromSoft games so you can mod it into something sane. $20 down the drain on that piece of shit.
Haven't played it yet - I've avoided games that are "hard for the sake of hard" as a rule, and I figured Fromsoft games were like that. Bloodborne at least is not - it's fair, you just have to learn from your mistakes (and get over the frustration).What about elden ring? Is it just over hyped like blood borne?

Finished the Orc campaign for Warcraft 2. This is a very old game now (created in 1995 and rereleased in 1999 in the form of the Battlenet Edition). I'm playing the Battlenet Edition from GOG. I have to say I'm glad I finally got this game! I only had access to the shareware copy when I was a kid and I played it to death. Eventually I got the original Warcraft but it's nowhere near as good as its sequel. Onto the game:
It holds up surprisingly well given its age. The gameplay seems well-balanced and once you learn the ropes it's not hard to develop a good gaming strategy. If I had only one thing to complain about, it's that the main campaign favors the naval battles a little too much. I enjoyed them well enough, but once you rule the seas there's not much else to do in the water. The game is very difficult in the later stages but again, once you figure out what you need to do it isn't that hard. The GOG version comes with the expansion pack, which I've heard is extremely difficult, so I cannot wait to try that. Currently I'm playing through the Human campaign and I'm about halfway through.
My favorite part of the game is the soundtrack. Glenn Stafford nailed this one, and all the tracks are very memorable and fit the game perfectly ("Your soundcard works perfectly!") . Well done. If you haven't played this game yet or if you want to replay it I highly recommend the GOG version. It runs flawlessly on Windows 10 and I've been having a blast. My son and I have played a couple of LAN's on this game now and we very much enjoy the game.
If you never play the main story you’ll never run into dragons. I think if anything the dragon battles are the worst aspect of the game. They feel epic and awesome… until your 50th battle. Then they’re just a nuisance.The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition with Anniversary Upgrade
This game. What an experience. Not sure what to say except my first playthrough was 225 hours long. I had fun playing this game.
So much content. I just loved wondering around finding new locations to explore. Finding new quests, characters and seeing what happened during them was a highlight for me. Some quest chains were very memorable and exciting.
While not a perfect game, I had game crashes and bugs. The combat isn't exactly complex but I did love just hacking and slashing through everything. The overall experience was so fun and enjoyable to me.
Next time I play, I want to go in with mods to improve my experience even further.
That was true. I eventually started to figure out how to increase my damage more effectively, I would kill dragons in a few hits. Also once you get a certain shout, dragons were easier to fight. But I didn't learn this until I was well into the game lol.If you never play the main story you’ll never run into dragons. I think if anything the dragon battles are the worst aspect of the game.
