I was thinking about getting D2 once it goes on sale, but haven't made up my mind. How's the PvE and are their any endgame raids in the game yet? It looks fairly solid otherwise but those are the things I have conflicting info on.

I overuse ellipses constantly in my posts. Apologies in advance, unless you already read my post. In that case regular apologies instead.

There's a plethora of PvE things to do and the first raid opens tomorrow.

MIx of Total Warhammer and Tyranny (the new Bastard's Wound DLC)

Something of practice (for TWII) and armies that I didn't win the game with for the former. That has been fun.

BW for Tyranny was severely disappointing (and overpriced for such a tiny DLC), which was irritating, since I actually liked most of the base game (up til Act 3) Instead of dealing with the huge unexplored areas and unresolved issues of the base game and expanding out the lore and setting, it digs a new hole that doesn't go anywhere. Just retreads more of the (fairly boring) dungeons crawls in the original game (and has a similar abrupt and unanswered ending).

Adds a couple companion quests (for only half the companions), but they feel really brief and end on uncertain and unsatisfactory notes.

The sad thing is, this shouldn't be surprising. Obsidian is really bad at endings, I can't think of one of their games that didn't have a rushed and unsatisfactory ending.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

Yeah, that DLC was frustratingly sparse.

I let the Beastwoman run the joint after clearing out the boring dungeon and that was it. I don't even think there was a big reward or anything.

Tyranny has flashes of greatness, but it never delivered for me.

That's what annoys me. I thought acts I and II were rather good, with lots of choices, dilemmas, and even different world states depending on your choices in the prologue. Then it just... collapses into boss fights.
I even thought they improved the combat system from Pillars a bit (using the skills rather than level based with a few modifiers 'accuracy' and 'defense' made the mechanics work a bit better, with a greater sense of player control)


But yeah, that's about what I did. A few yawn worthy fights (some of which were a bit overtuned for random trash fights), a couple murders and I chose the same outcome you did. The other two contenders are useful for their specific skills in crafts and water reclamation, but they don't any leadership qualities (and they're both $&$@* jerks)

There is a panel in the end game sequence describing what happens, but the payoff for messing with this silly settlement [and why anyone would settle a place with poisonous water and constant attacks from supernatural horrors is a baffling starting premise] at all is... not very much.
I'd only recommend it to people who really really loved the dungeon sections of the original, because there isn't anything else to draw. Another unfinished mystery (which could be intriguing, but it's left completely open. To the point that the original point of the place could be a prison/concentration camp for eliminating variant species, or turning beastmen human, or seeking sanctuary from something, or turning the bane clouds into a power source for the spires or eleventy different other interpretations of bad cave art).

As a bonus, pursuing the main quest in the settlement breaks several side quests held by boring NPCs that you don't have any reason to interact with a second time. They'll actually give you the quest prompt, but there will be no dialogue option if you're at the wrong stage of the main settlement quest. You pretty much have to talk to them immediately after delivering the tools and/or book, and they're pretty irrelevant people and off the main path to the teleporters as well.

Just finished up CoD Advanced Warfare which was ok I guess. The story was pretty bad. Sticking with the Sci-Fi war theme I'm now starting Titanfall 2. After just 5 minutes I can tell the campaign is going to be better.

Divinity: Original Sin 2.

Decided to roll as an Echanter, so I can summon a lil Imp to do the rough and tumble stuff in conbat.

I loved the first Divinity: Original Sin, aside from its sometimes corny humor, it was a solid turn based RPG. Only about an hour in, but its feeling pretty awesome so far.

I've been playing a lot of different games lately:

Diablo 1 (kinda scary)
The Ultimate Doom (it is my favourite game, so I play it regularly)
Doom 3 (kinda scary)
Abe's Odyssey
Commander Keen 4 (it has a weird way of naming its sequels)
Hexen 2 (finished it lately)
CS:GO (It is kinda rare for me to play this game, but I sometimes enter a lobby with my friend and we both have fun)

I've been hearing a lot of good things about Warframe lately, so decided to give it a go (it's free, so I didn't really have anything to lose)... turns out, those good things were pretty damn accurate.

For a game that's 90% jumping and shooting, those two things need to be good and they definitely are! The mechanics brings to mind a cross between Mass Effect Andromeda with a dash of Titanfall and that's a pretty good mix.

It's also not that grindy for a free-to-play MMO... well, it is, but in an accessible way; you can play for an hour or so and still make some tangible progress to a rank up or a new weapon and the constant supply of weapon and armour mods means there's usually something new to keep the gameplay fresh.

Oh, and there's 360 Degree Space Jetpack Iron Man missions after a while, which are simply awesome.

Yeah, very enjoyable all in all, nice to dip in and out of and mighty good fun to play.

So far so fun on Farcry4. Its definitely more of the same, the basic formula hasnt changed but hey if it works it works.
Plot is definitely a bit thin though.....

I really enjoyed Far Cry 4. Taking out strongholds without being spotted was fun.

I'm playing Uncharted 4, so far so good. I'm only playing it on moderate difficulty and the gunplay seems adequately deadly. I like that they amped up the stealth mechanic.

My only complaint is
Spoiler:
Why is Drake lying to Elena about his whereabouts? It seems a forced way to shoehorn in some drama later.

Well until now no Far Cry game have had a real deep and twisting plot, but yes. I agee with you man. But its all good when you get to snipe people with a 50 cal sniper rifle and hunt bad guys with a elephant gun

I just got a new computer so I am having a little computer game renaissance at the moment!

I am working my way through Darksiders 2 which has nice fighting mechanics and worlds with decent puzzles.
It does have a weird loot system and the story lacks the complexity of something like Soul Reaver (especially as there is no central villain) but it is definitely worth a play.

I have also started an new campaign on Shogun 2. I have Darthmod installed and altered realm divide to only happen when I take Kyoto so I am looking forward to a long game with lots of diplomacy.
Unfortunately the Takeda died very early so I had to send an army on a cross country hike buying access from 4 different clans to resurrect them as my vassal!

Now that's an absolute classic. Recenly entertained myself with watching a speed run off it.

I've spent some time with a house of many doors lately. It's not sunless sea but it really really wants to be.

His pattern of returning alive after being declared dead occurred often enough during Cain's career that the Munitorum made a special ruling that Ciaphas Cain is to never be considered dead, despite evidence to the contrary.

Been bouncing between the current (or maybe last year's. . . Marco Reus is on the cover) FIFA game, and Horizon Zero Dawn.


Horizon is definitely a beautiful game, the game play is quite fun, the missions aren't really repetitive at this point, and just overall a ton of fun to play

Been working on Crusader Kings. Was excited to see my Irish ruler join an Orthodox secret society. It didn't take long before she spectacularily botched all of the tasks given to her however, and the society became a revolving door of people coming in and out.
A bit worried about Scotland though. It seems to be expanding into Ireland at an alarming rate. Might try masterminding a few civil wars and convincing the more martially oriented court members to side with me.

Re-playing Far Cry 4 as I realized I have not played through supporting Amita. Still early in (only got 4 towers and 5 outposts). Still, feth Eagles and Rhinos. They are way more deadly than a squad of fully armed soldiers.

Noticed Danganronpa V3 has been released on Steam, so had to pick it up. So far, it's shaping up to be as good as, if not better than, the previous 2 installments. Its visuals have greatly improved, and the all the new Class Trial segments are good, there isn't one that stands out as bad. The characters are... interesting, but there isn't one that I can actually trust, which I guess means the game has done its job. That being said, I much prefered the 2nd game's cast (my personal favourite), though that might change as the game goes on.

Also if you like references, there's plenty going around in this game.

Also decided to give Inquisitor - Martyr another go. There have been changes to the game, it's shaping up now, but it still feels very clunky and lacking.
