FYI they are having a "return home" campaign this December. So at the very least you could log in and **** around with your friends. You could seriously do 2 hours of balyd runs, and be geared enough to participate in 90% of current content. You just need to run to a zone and your friends wouldn't even have to do any real work to get you started.

Obviously you wouldn't be the best but you'd be set to **** around.

So it turns out I am pretty terrible at Rogue Legacy. I'd like to think I am getting better...

In other news playing Agarest: Generations of War is a lot like knitting or sweeping a large warehouse. Especially with the DLC which makes you an OP broken PoS. Kill the endless pointless battles to get to some endless pointless plot text. Not sure why I kinda like it. I do like sweeping though, it's kind of Zen.

I've been trying it out. And have been determined not to touch the free DLCs that came with my prepurchase. I noticed that my weapons I started with were 90-110 attack power. I could upgrade them using the EP points I earned to around 135. But all the super weapons that came with the DLCs were 800-900 attack power.

But from what I gather, Agarest is just a dating sim with some really basic tactical RPG elements. Woo the girl of your dreams, knock her up, have a kid, repeat process as the offspring for a few generations.

If only NIS would bring Disgaea to the PC... that'd be fun. I'm a sucker for Tactical RPGs. Mix that with crazy itemization and growth and Disgaea is great. My only problem with Disgaea is the lack of a story interesting enough to make me move forward instead of just go off fighting the same stuff over and over. Final Fantasy Tactics A2 so far is the best Tactical RPG on my list. I'd love SE to make another Tactics game, taking what they've done with A and A2, but making one less childish and cartoony.

Yeah I almost restarted without the DLC weapons. But I'm in second generation now and just don't want to redo it. I have eventually learned some stuff about how to link attack and move your people around the grid better with the linked combo's. I'm almost not as OP now towards what I think is almost the end of gen 2 so it might eventually balance out after this gen.

I think in the steam forums people say that by the 3rd generation the DLC weapons aren't that OP. I like the linking system. And the game overall reminds me of the Valkyrie Profile game for the DS.

ESO made me fire up Skyrim again though. And I am home for a short weekend after 36 days out of town, so I had a backlog of TV shows to watch. Just finished my last episode (it was Revolution). So I'm all caught up on TV. Monday I leave again for only 20 days this time. I'll have to decide what I want to spend my nights playing this time around. Last time it was mostly FFXIV. I definitely have to do something other than go out and eat/drink all the time. I think I put on about 8 lbs over those 36 days with all the "Hey guys, let's hit up the steak house tonight" and then having an 11oz steak, loaded potato, and a couple tall beers.

Man Rogue Legacy is driving me insane. Got lots of neat unlocks now, still pretty much suck most runs... Occasionally have a glory run were everything clicks. Then I play to much while not paying attention and die without making any gold for like 10 runs and realize it's break time.

Then I play more anyway.

Started playing Contrast the other night. It's exactly how I suspected it would be: little rough but enjoyable, charming setting (provided you like the 1920's theme) and a somewhat novel game mechanic. Only an hour and change into it but I haven't found any puzzles that were all that difficult yet.

Anyone tried out Paper's Please?

Quote:
The communist state of Arstotzka has ended a 6-year war with neighboring Kolechia and reclaimed its rightful half of the border town, Grestin.

Your job as immigration inspector is to control the flow of people entering the Arstotzkan side of Grestin from Kolechia. Among the throngs of immigrants and visitors looking for work are hidden smugglers, spies, and terrorists. Using only the documents provided by travelers and the Ministry of Admission's primitive inspect, search, and fingerprint systems you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested.


Not sure if it's got ten bucks worth of entertainment in it....

I've heard good things about Papers Please from other people but I wasn't able to bring myself to buy it at 50% off over the weekend. Once it hits 75% or an indie bundle I'll give it a shot.

Been playing Path of Exile. Its been cleaned up quite a bit since I participated in its beta. I am pretty engrossed in it right now the sheer volume of play styles available and skills/abilities to utilize is pretty surreal. Sports 3 acts over 3 difficulties, as well as a pretty much a forever endgame with some frankly "impossible" content. (how they expect you to clear content without having Mana regen is insane...but people do it somehow.)

Anyone who is in to diablo style ARPGs should check this out...its also free.

This.

Also, really REALLY frustrating. I finally am at a place where I can clear the castle without trouble (excluding minibosses; to date I have only killed two), and even the forest isn't too tough as long as I don't ***** up too often. Unfortunately I do ***** up fairly often Smiley: lol

Getting Vampiric runes and gear really helps, as did pumping points into armor. Or so I've found. I have yet to take any of the magic classes for a spin besides Spellsword, which was lackluster. I must be doing magic wrong... also, this game's controls are a bit rough. I feel like playing with a controller instead of the keyboard would work better. Maybe I'll treat myself to a controller, as my birthday is coming up soon Smiley: grin

I really want to buy XCom, but I'll wait to see if there's a decent sale on it. I'm also debating if I want the Bioshock Infinite Season Pass; but again, I'll wait on it for now. I've heard the Buried at Sea DLC is only a few hours long.

The Walking Dead Season 2, chapter 1 comes out on the 17th, and I'm debating picking that up too. The preorder season pass for it is, I believe, $22.50 on Steam. That's not bad, though I don't look forward to waiting several months between chapters.

Per episode? A couple hours for $7 (30% off from GMG) isn't terrible although it's sort of hard to quantify if some other game is discounted to $4.99 and gives twelve hours of game play or something. Of course, if you don't intend on playing it soonish, it's not as though it's going to get more expensive provided you're willing to wait on anther sale/coupon.

Started Saints Row IV a couple nights ago. It's... okay? I mean, it's fun and all but I think I liked the carjacking and bang-bang guns of SRTT more than the super sprinting and pew-pew guns of IV. I'm sure I'll finish it and not hate it but I think I'll be sticking with SRTT for my satisfying doses of random mayhem.

I'm kind of in a gaming rut, lol.

I was playing Ni No Kuni, but I think I'm just not one for the JRPG anymore. It's a beautiful game, and the combat is fun enough, but the particular pacing of main/side quests of JRPGs is grating...

I'm subbed to TOR, but I keep not playing it. Smiley: lol

Most of my gaming time has gone to Marvel Puzzle Quest recently, not gonna lie.

Me too. It's laziness on my part. I don't have the will to find, download, install, and learn any particular game at the moment.

It's so easy to just hit the Candy Crush box on FB for 20mins of mindless gaming.

With winter here though, I might find some time to dedicate to an interesting game or two.

I'm subbed to LotRO. I too keep not playing. The pvmp is dead right now cuz of major pve expansion.

I linked my FFXI account to my new SE account that covers FFXIV back before I quit FFXI, so every time I log into the system I see my old FFXI character and mule sitting there waiting for me to activate them again.

Keep away from everything that can kill you. Unplug your network cable before starting so you can get used to the game without getting Ganked 5 minutes in.

Stick with it. You will suck at first. But the combat system is actually extremely precise and once it clicks so rewarding.

I'm trying to come up with some tips without making to long a list but I will probably fail so pure stream of conscious:

-Lock on and block was the easiest style to pick up for me first. On gamepad you lock on with L3. Later you will not need to lock on as much and with some weapon skill sets 2Hing a weapon and ranging or circling around can be better. But turtleing up is ok at first. You dont regen stam while blocking so get used to letting go in between enemy attack some and moving back until you have stam.

-Weight: -25% of max load = fast move fast flip -50% = medium movement medium flip, after that it is FAT Roll. Slow. Happy medium for new players is probaly under 50% with enough poise to not get stunned to much. And a shield with enough stability. Later when you are pro fast ninja flipping with wood grain ring is great fun, especially with a havels ring so you can maintain some poise at least.

-Good weapons you can get early:
-Winged Spear (Dex build) Graveyard
-Zweihander (STR build) Graveyard
-Claymore (Everything build love claymore) On Wyvern bridge after Taurus demon guarded by...wyvern FIRE BURNS
-Uchigatana (best katana in the game Oh dat 2H spam and the way it eats bosses) Kill the undead merchant in Lower after you get enough stuff from him or wait and buy from Shiva. (just kill him Uchi is ***)
-Drake Sword: Just don't. yes you can get it from the drake tail shooting it with arrows. But its OP when you get it and will teach you bad habits. If you are really stuck on you first play well then ok get it. Until you level up some then upgrade one of the better weapons above.


Tons of other weapons and tips that, should get you started though. I'm about 2/3's of the way through on my current run. It's like my 5th or 6th Oo

*I'll edit that mess for readability and errors later, but I'm on lunch now and don't have time. :)

Since it levels with the upgraded flame, Pyromancy is useful for most builds regardless of stat allocation. Combining pyromancy with a high HP build can make you a lot more comfortable. Combine this with a Lightning, Fire or non scaling boss/dragon weapon for good damage while maxing your survivability. Power within is a bit of a pain to get to as a new player, but is worth the effort once you get the hang of the game. Certain bosses are immune to Fire, so try to prepare for that possibility. Early on, Quelaag is either highly resistant or immune, beyond that, the problem lies in the demon ruins section, but you should have a lightning weapon by then.

As mentioned, go mid-roll with as much poise as you can reasonably muster as a newish player. There are break points where certain weapons will need two hits to break your guard, but that's less to worry about for PvE.

I think that the most important thing to remember is to play the game like an RPG. When a challenge is getting the best of you, level grinding and equipment upgrades are often a **** good option. Someone, likely either Vaatividya, EpicNameBro or AGermanSpy did a video where they showed the scaling difficulty on gargoyles(a boss a lot of newbies have trouble with) simply by taking them on with no upgrades and NPC summons vs having both. It's like night and day.

Finished SR IV the other day. It was a good but uneven ride. The story, as it unfolded through the missions and side missions, was pretty good, very funny at times and an interesting bow on the series (although it makes you wonder where they take the franchise from here). Game play wasn't quite as solid. Some parts were fun like the super powers* but then they'd shoehorn in some ****** platforming mechanics that were just tedious. I don't know why you play the Saints Row games but it's probably not for 3D platforming, lame hacking minigames or playing some poor man's version of Audiosurf. Later in the game, you're forced through the same mechanics a second time even if you avoided all the voluntary instances of them up to that point. There's also some design choices that get old such as the eternal night of Steelport and (intentional) graphic flickering. If you've played (and liked) previous games in the series, you'll probably want to play this one just to see what they do with it and the call-backs. If you never have, most of that would go right past you and you're just stuck with a pretty uneven experience. Also, if you never have go buy a $5 copy of SRTT already at least, weirdo.

*I still prefer guns and carjacking to the super powers and lasers but once I just accepted that part for what it was, it was well done and fun in its own way

Everfrost is where I once spent my time on EQ2... I think Cyliena still plays as well on that server. Calthine and Bludwyng are on Antonia Bayle.

But if you needed help with something I have 3 or 4 characters 80+, and can do some crafting.

Picked up Brothers during the Steam sales. Completed that game. Worth the money. Only 3 hours but a good story. And the controls were pretty solid. Very little frustration.

Ending spoilers.
At the end, when the younger brother was going home by himself after the older brother died... he reaches the water, and can't swim. It's not until you use what used to be the older brother's controls that he is able to overcome his fear and then do everything else that the older brother did. The whole time you hear his voice, etc. Was a very good way to end it.

Picked up a bunch of sh*t in the sales. Ignored most of it and am still plugging away at Rogue Legacy. Debating picking up The Swapper and/or Deadlight before their flash sale is over.

Played and finished Of Orcs & Men last week. Fairly lightweight RPG where you play an orc & goblin trying to stop the human's war against them. Combat is Dragon Age-y where you can (semi)pause the action, switch between characters and assign them stances and attacks. There's a conversation wheel and some decisions to make but I don't think they really affect much, if anything.

The orc & goblin models/animation are well done, humans less so. Likewise, the two main characters are well voice-acted and everyone else ranges from barely passable to ridiculous. The pacing of the game is pretty poor with constant loading screens, fades, lengthy cut scenes, etc. I'd probably give it a low "B"; with some better voice acting and more attention paid to pacing it'd be a high "B" but it was an enjoyable play either way.

I've heard good things about this game.

At the insistence of my daughter I bought Don't Starve. Haven't downloaded it yet.

Risk of Rain is really ******* fun, and also really ******* hard. Great soundtrack, too. I'm kind of getting a bit tired of pixel art games recently, but this one has been worth it so far.

So if anyone picks up Risk of Rain, I highly suggest doing a playthrough on the Easy difficulty setting. It wasn't too bad, and by the time I'd beaten it on Easy, I'd unlocked I think 6 or 7 classes, plus a bunch of items. This gives you a variety of classes to try and see if a different playstyle works better for you.

I might have been able to beat it at the Medium setting earlier, but I got greedy and tried to farm up more items and ended up eating it pretty badly. The game does have controller support, though it's initially completely disabled, and even after enabling it some menus still have to be navigated with the mouse.

Playing Remember Me. There's probably a word to describe it, but that word isn't "good".
