Back in the day, I did all achievements in the original Nier for xbox 360. It involved a lot of grinding for materials I think to make or upgrade all weapons. Let´s just say something broke inside of me and today achievements are more a motivation to play a fun game a little bit more even without going all 100%.

RE: [Official] What are you playing?
At work and nobody is here, so….
After E3 2 month ago, I played a lot and finish 6 games (all on pc).
Need for Speed (2015): Good: I like how my car was embedded into some of the videos. Looked good. Also it was surprising that every actor played their role with a straight face considering how potentially cringey it was. Graphics are nice. Bad: Some time trials are bucked. No day night cycle. “Story” is bland.
Mirrors edge catalyst: Hmmm, Story feel more like a prequel to something better and all the optional stuff is way too overwhelming, so I concentrated on finishing the Story at some point. But one of the best things in any game I´ve played is the sense of presence in first person. Seeing your body when looking down and on reflecting surfaces just feels good, especially in combination with the parkour part. For Skyrim I had to install a mod to have first person on the 3rd person body and it felt incredible.
Dark Souls 3: I really like games with a good narrative, potentially interesting story, good characters and character interaction. DS3 has nothing of it. Yeah gameplay (fighting) is okay but feels at some point limited. It was the only thing I could recollect after playing DS1 years ago and even this feels kind of bah now. At the end you are more exploiting the fighting system than actually have a dynamic experience e.g. baiting one enemy at a time, circle around obstacles or beating a boss just before you are out of estus flasks. Beating the game felt as exciting as finishing a Sudoku puzzle.
Nier Automata: How disgusting! Unplayable! Muddy graphics! That is if you want to play the game on PC with a GTX 780. Really bad port of an amazing game. Anyway I found that like in the original Nier I wasn´t able to follow the story 100%. But that isn´t a problem if you have interesting characters and interaction between them. Game on normal is way too easy for the most part and I would have played it on hard if it wasn´t for constant crashes and the ability to use an infinite amount of healing items. Music was great and the game is going to stay in my memory for some time…
Yeah I subscribed to Origin Access for a year to play a number of games I wouldn´t pay money for. So after stopping Unravel half way through because of some frustrating level/ check point design I played 2 FPS witch at least promised good graphics. And both run quite well….
Titanfall 2: Didn´t like the gameplay in the Titan but on foot movement was awesome. Maybe being a little too sticky on walls. First game with dynamic resolution (downscaling) I played. Actually feels like having something in your I or on your glasses/ contacts. Don’t know how console players are okay with this. Story was meh and I feel nothing for the relation of the pilot and his titan. One enemy being and speaking German felt more comical and lame than anything else.
Battlefield 1: runs extremely well and I think I even maxed out the graphics at 1080p. Nothing to engaging gameplay wise. Multiple short campaigns where I couldn’t really connect to the player characters and often felt more stereotypical story wise. Didn´t like that most of the story was in video sequences and not ingame like in Battlefield 4. And hey this was the 3rd Battlefield game I didn´t (technically) have to pay for to play the story.
Sims 4: Actually bought the game before it became part of origin access. Spend most time in the character editor and modding in new clothes, cosmetics and haircuts. Designing houses might be also interesting but the actual game, …. just why? How great a Sims game would be in VR, preferably first person and maybe some social multiplayer.
So next maybe Mass Effect 3. Never played it after my Xbox died. But first have to mod it to even support a controller and maybe have better textures.
RE: Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice (PC/PS4)
Probably going to buy it at some point and for 30€ it´s okay when it is 8h or little less. Also I kind of feel like I just want to support Ninja Theory. … Though at the moment I think of buying a new graphics card to even run it in an appropriate quality or hope the motion blur is good for 30fps.
RE: Genres you no longer love
FPS. I don’t mind the first person part but FP-Shooter just from the gameplay standpoint bores the hell out of me. If you can reduce it to placing the centre of the screen over the head of the enemies, then I am out. An interesting story or nice set pieces can help and luckily most FPS last only for 5 hours or so.
RE: E3 google calendar in ical format (is here ;) )
Ohhh, thank you very much for this. :D
RE: We NEED an Assassin's Creed VR Game(Experience)
I think Ubisoft could use the assets to make an interesting education game. Go to some historic sites or see how the people from this time period lived.
