Re: PS5 game trailers

Excellent. The buzz is that playing as a magic user is significantly easier than playing as a melee fighter, I'll try both. Yeah, similar to DS1 there are far fewer situations where they force you into a small room with nowhere to kite against fast aggressive enemies. And mana makes it way easier t...

Re: The Mandalorian

The show continues to be deeply set in the greater Star Wars universe while also being a fun little immediate story. In the end, I don't want Djin or the Child to be 'important' people in the setting, just a pair of sentients making their way in a giant universe. Agreed. I think that's part of the ...

Re: PS5 game trailers

Cool Sith, can't wait to play DeS remake once we get out of the East Germany phase of this thing's retail lifecycle. the gameplay is pretty much 1 for 1 with the original, but there's tons of little QoL improvements. A few I've noticed so far: the camera is better, there's a toolbelt for quick use ...

Re: What Video Games are you playing?

I've found Red Dead Redemption 2 is much more of a computer "sit and the desk and lean forward" kind of game than a couch game. It didn't help that they seemed to expect you to have a wall sized TV on the PS4 with relatively small text popping on briefly. They've also done their damndest ...

Re: What are you reading now? Provide links PLZ

A Deadly Eduction , by Naomi Novik I loved this! I'm a huge Novik fan (Temeraire's venn diagram is perfectly aligned and centered on me) so I was looking forward to it. I was a little concerned that some were describing this as a YA novel. And I guess I see what they mean. The protagonist (and all ...

Re: Random Video Game Thoughts

Why is "Press any key to continue" a thing on loading screens? It's irritating at best and a complete fucking nuisance (MSFS2020) if it actually stops loading the game. Bonus stupidity point if pressing any key doesn't actually work and you have to click a mouse button. However, I do thin...

Re: Happy Things Go Here

Almost done 3d printing organizer trays for my D&D Adventure series board games. I'm honestly amazed at how much more fun I have and how much more often I play when everything is neatly organized. Just the fact that the games are set up in seconds and there is no digging through piles of counte...

I stupidly thought dry brushing would be the easy part. I was wrong.


Depends on the model.

Re: What Video Games are you playing?

Just finished Amnesia: Rebirth. It's good; really cool to see the vague backstory of Dark Descent expanded upon greatly. The game has some pacing issues and some of the levels feel kind of like filler or at least are padded (I think this could have been a 6 hour game instead of a 14 hour one and bee...
