[Official] What are you playing?
I currently want to play nothing else other than shooters rn, so I reinstalled Battlefield 4. It's such a solid game. God bless the people who are still playing on the Oceania and Asia servers. I have to wait like 20-30 minutes to enter the 2 servers that are still active because there's a long queue for them usually, but after that it's just a fun time, full stop.
Currently playing a wonderful little story adventure game called Hitchhiker:

@jdincinerator nice, I would love to know your thoughts after you finish it.
My favourite MP mode ever was in this: Gun Master. I even came out on top a few times. 😃
Play "Lake" demo, you will like it.
@scotty I'll look out for it.
Been playing TEKKEN 7 and my my it's an unbalanced and cruel cheesing-style fighting game.
@bam541 Just finished Hitchiker and I'm pleasantly surprised, it's such a leisurely story-based game where you take in stories as your ride around various locations. I discovered this from The Escapist and their three-minute reviews. Makes me want EZA to do something akin to the Review Pods GT did, because there are so many hidden indie curios that could do with a spotlight and Hitchhiker is certainly one of them.

I've had a huge revamp on my second floor and given my PC a new priority again. Despite the new setup though I've restarted The Witcher (Enhanced Edition) and I'm going full in this time. I still argue it's the best of the three but hopefully this time I can move on and ignore the flaws in TW3, finally putting an end to the trilogy.
Been glued to New Pokemon Snap and I love it. Sure my nostalgia for the original probably fuels my love for this new game but it's so lovely that I can't help but submerge myself into its sparkling pristine waters.

I just picked up and started the remake of Mafia. The game looks wonderful so far but considering how bad most modern takes on older games turn out, I'm still holding my breath.
Its butchered remake. they even ruined the story let alone gameplay that turn it into cover shooter.

I'm playing Steep, in typical Unisoft fashion there's a cool game somewhere underneath the excess of structure and gamification.
Also, really not digging the game trying to sell me stuff while I play. I can tolerate non intrusive monetisation but me just playing the game, choosing what seems to be a normal activity and the game taking me to a store page, it's a good way to get me to abandon a game.
I'll stick with it a few more hours because once you're playing it it's a good game but I don't think I'll finish it.
Stopped playing Undertale. This one made me sad, always thought I would enjoy it, and I can see why it has a cult status but it's just not for me. I think I got to a point where I just can't deal with random encounters. I get that's psychological, if the enemies weren't invisible I would be fine with it, but I just can't.

Started Ori and the Blind Forest. Those first 5 mins, just, fuck you @DIPSET
Repeting the Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number
What a f**cking pain in the ass is this game!? Just an annoying mediocre software. Why did you made the maps bigger, why did you add unkillable villians without gun, why did you mixed the story so much and just destroy the effect, why did you cut the game's trademark speed with a lot of out-of-sight villians. Just why!?
What a dissapointment that was. I remember I liked it more than now when I first played it even though it was still not as good as HM1 to me at the end but now that I'm replaying it I'm even more annoyed by its awful decisions one after another.
Wasted potential all around.
Started Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
Not progressed so much yet but game feels very similar to the first one, I remember the mechanics slowly; I just finished the first one last year so yeah, that's the biggest reason it doesn't feel new enough yet probably. Also I guess I just can't care a lot about games if their main point is gameplay and not the story and Ori 2 is no exception although I hope it will be fun enough for me to still get enjoyment.

I've heard the sequel is that much better so I never actually played the original. Where did you land on Will of the Wisps?
E_Zed_Eh_Intern last edited by
@dipset I got both. I said that because of what happens in the first 5 minutes, not because I hate the game. It’s pretty good so far.
Through a series of late night internet surfing sessions, I somehow ended up wanting to try out TERA on PS4, and I did. I was feeling nostalgic for the old free-to-play MMOs that I used to play in internet cafes back when I was younger, and this game certainly fulfills that nostalgia like no other. This game has it all: shoddy presentation and production values, somewhat generic art style and story, less than optimal performance. The thing is that I'm actually having fun with the gameplay. The combat's pretty decent, and exploring is kinda fun.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps(PC)
I didn't finish it but I guess I will take a break for sometime because of my PC's heating problem. With that said I played it 10+ hours and already liked it more than the first game. Graphics, gameplay, story all feels similar to the first game but interestingly I enjoyed it much more this time. Some of the new skills are nice, there are side quests now and they are not annoying fortunately; I even liked some of theirs mini stories. Mokis are cute, side characters are good additions overall. They made the world of the game more alive this time with the improvements that I've just written. Soundtrack is really soothing and that colours in game's world something else, it looks like a painting!
My main complaints are about some annoying platforming sections, Ori dies too fast(even with upgrades), game gives you so much little perks but you always have to choose just a little bit of them, I would prefer for more meaningful perks instead of pouring this much(I usually stick with what I got in the first hours because they were the most beneficial ones), story is so simple and didn't touch me a lot. And like I said above, game feels a little bit too similar to previous game, more than I expected for sure.
I didn't finish it yet like I said but I don't think my thoughts will change drastically towards more negative side; maybe they can increase even more than right now and it's still a good sequel for a game that I didn't like as much as anybody else. Still not sorry about this one didn't get GOTY nomination though. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Probably will quote this and share my final thoughts once I finish it.
Resident Evil VII(PS5 via backwards compatibility)
I just got the
so I still have hours to go. It's good, not scary as much as I expected but still tense most of the time, I'm playing slowly and just leave after 2 hours for 2 days. Story is intriguing and backtracking is fun as usual. I have two complains:
Molded is not a good creation.
I'm getting tired of these unkillable stalkers in RE games, plase find something new for the future.
I can't even explore as much as I want because of this shit!
Did a bunch of things recently:
- Started a casual 2nd playthrough of TLOU Part II on Hard+. Basically means that I'm skipping all cutscenes, just want to enjoy the gameplay and combat. Can't wait for Factions!
- Restarted my playthrough of Elder Scrolls Online (base game) because I ended up not liking my original character. Now I'm a female Nord. It's 100% a podcast game, but the quests so far are good enough to make me pay more attention every once in a while.
- Started playing AC New Horizons last week. It's as chill and cozy as I expected.
Playing RE7 for the first time before going to Village(😏)
I'm sick of developers streching games' length by keeping endings long with boring and forced levels. I was satisfied with how things worked out mostly when
we left the Baker family
But now I'm probably in the last hour of the story and not feeling that good about the game because of this unnecessaryly long level. If you really had to do it -which is not the situation, they could implement this in the story some way- at least cut it short and don't make me think "Can you finish already!?"
I guess you were the one who thinks similar and how right you were!
