I figured I'd start some kind of gaming thread, since a lot of us probably enjoy video games (and board games, and RPGs too probably). So, if you feel like sharing what you're playing, need someone to play with, feel like posting some cool game trailers, or just generally feel like talking about games, you can do it right here. :)

    I've been on an indie shooter streak lately, mostly playing My Friend Pedro and HARDCORE MECHA



    My Friend Pedro is pretty popular apparently. Also, good fun so far, although I'm worried it'll get a little repetitive before the end, and I'm not sure I'll actually go back and play levels just to get a better grade.



    HARDCORE MECHA was a kickstarter thingy from a while back, that apparently just showed up on PC. I really like Front Mission: Gun Hazard, so I was hoping for something similar, even though I hadn't really heard anything about it. Right now I'm liking the old Front Mission (and Metal Warriors) more, this one seems to be pretty linear compared to those, but maybe it'll open up later. Very nicely animated.

    I've been playing Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (the Ultimate Sith Edition) on the computer, because I picked that up during the Steam summer sale. However, audio issues were getting on my last nerve, so I dug out my XBOX 360 disc of the game (**not** the Ultimate Sith Edition) and started over.

    I was also installing some stuff in my GOG library last night, so I played a couple other Star Wars games for a bit, a little Rogue Squadron 3D and some Shadows of the Empire. Man, I love roping some AT-AT walkers in the first level of Shadows of the Empire. :)

    Not doing much gaming at all these days. Forza Horizon 4 on the Xbox, and Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes on iOS.
    More of an "Absolute Member", to be fair...

    This weekend I've been playing Untitled Goose Game.

    It's a lovely day in the village, and you are a horrible goose.
    Untitled Goose Game is a slapstick-stealth-sandbox, where you are a goose let loose on an unsuspecting village.

    Also, Hollow Knight.

    It's a fun game. I've been thinking about getting it for the PC since I don't play my PS4 anymore.
  • HundredHundred178 Posts: 885Member
    Yeah, from what I've heard they plan on making it a lot bigger. It seems endless as it is now. Be nice if they also had an MMO version too.

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw is great so far. I put in a couple of hours when it came out, but haven't really made much progress in the story. There's certainly lots to do and I really enjoy the look.

    Also, it's not really a game to speak of, but I do dabble around with this from time to time. It's a program called Flowscape.

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

    Is it any good? I am in two minds on getting it. Not really a fan of EA.

    Yeah, most people in the gaming community aren't fans of modern EA. (I remember when they were one of the best gaming companies) However, they actually did a good job on this one. It's single player with seemingly none of the modern EA stuff that has enraged fans. Also, I can confirm that the PC version is quite stable and runs great on my gaming machine, I don't know much about the PS4 or XBOX One versions, but they should do well also. A buddy of mine has it for the PS4 and he was texting me yesterday about how much he was enjoying it. So, I'm assuming that version looks and runs great too. The graphics are quite nice, no matter which version you get.

    As for the game itself, it's pretty fun, lots of parkour. It's a lot like Uncharted meets Star Wars. I've played through a couple planets (not counting the starter planet) and the story and characters are OK. The combat is pretty basic, lots of lightsaber and not so much Force powers. Though, I did get Force push on the second planet I did, (again, not counting the starter planet) which was a welcome addition to my arsenal. I was hoping for something more like The Force Unleashed, which is one of my favorite SW games, but that's not what we get. The combat is nowhere near as epic and cool as that game, but it's not bad either. Though, the main focus of the game isn't combat, it's adventure. There's even a difficulty setting called "Story Mode," which doesn't lessen the number of enemies, but it turns the combat challenge way down so that you can spend less time fighting and more time focusing on other things. There are lots of things to do and find on each planet you visit, which is nice. So, overall, it's pretty fun. I put four hours into it Saturday night but haven't had time to play since then, as I've been working and getting rest for work.

    Outer Worlds at the moment. Finishing it off.
    Last weekend I was playing Jedi Fallen Order, I liked it a lot but I thought it needed more planets. I finished it in around 30hours completely 100% on Jedi Knight, and I still died a lot, mostly from falling down huge chasms.

    Pretty authentic Star Wars experience then. :tongue:

    I've heard good things, but I'll probably wait for a sale. Haven't even start Outer Worlds yet, so it's not like I'll run out of things to play.

    Haha yeah, except I have to do my own wilhelm scream.

    Not surprised it a bit like Uncharted, one of the main writers for that game did the majority of the work on this.
    But that was for another game that was meant to have come out last year. EA cancelled it as they believed at the time no one wanted story lead games and just wanted online games like Battlefront. I guess they took most of the work done on her game and reworked it for this.

    Love The Force Unleashed, never got round to playing it sequel though.

    Especially when you have to do fun stuff like slide down a slope, jump at just the right time and angle to hit a rope, swing from that to a wall, wall run along said wall and jump just right to hit a ledge.

    I'm pretty sure that's a standard trial Younglings have to do to become Padawans. ;)

    I usually did the slides right first time, but then the second time round I would slide off the side on a turn or something stupid.
    It was like they had the mechanic for sliding and just had to use it all the time.

    But apart from the gamey parts I enjoyed the story and the majority of the characters. That music he was listening to at the start was pretty cool, and its an actual band (Mongolian rock band called the Hu) lol
  • evil_genius_180evil_genius_180914 Posts: 8,936Member
    Of all the parkour elements, I find the slides the most annoying. But, they're manageable.
