    Morrowind. It took me like an hour of backtracking to find Hla Oad for the Thieves Guild, and then when I got there no one wants to tell me anything about Dwemer artifacts I'm supposed to get. I both love and hate how hard this game is.

    And they're not gonna. You gotta steal them. I personally find it easier to raid an entire Dwemer ruin most of the time. Especially if your sneak and security aren't super high. It's a weirdly difficult quest for how low you are when they usually give it to you.


    Also playing Morrowind.

    Yeah, I figured that out after save-scumming and bribing people for info and they'd finally just go "I don't know anything about that". Dunmer are a bunch of assholes lol.

    Currently playing ESO in Murkmire, and do love the race-specific dialogue that keeps coming up in this expansion. My Argonian sounds clueless half the time and they rightly chastise me for it:



    The Honest Trailer guy voices Xukas btw, it's pretty cool.

    That's how games were designed at that time. Games like Morrowind were pretty challenging but also rewarding. I miss this approach sometimes but gladly there are so many options to emulate that nostalgic feel. For example, if I want to play decent hack-n-slash RPG I'm gonna pick Path of Exile. Yeah, it has some flaws, but it's very fun to play especially with services like this one which saves my precious time and nerves on grinding. All we need is just engaging gameplay without monotonous actions.

    F1 2019: much better handling, to the point where I myself can finally drive a track like Shanghai without assists and not spin or lock up the brakes literally every other corner. AI is still kind of dumb, ie they're still too slow through the first turn, but they're more aggressive and overtake much more intelligently.

    Really digging it, just wish F2 had a larger role in the career mode but oh well.

    I recently bought a switch from a friend of mine, and I've been playing a few different games- Pokemon, Let's Go Eevee, Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario Bros. Deluxe, Crash Bandicoot, Fire Emblem...

    out of those my favorites are Pokemon and Mario Bros. Deluxe; I like Odyssey, but I keep having trouble at like every spot, so I've made very little progress.

    Good choice. The reason to buy Switch for me was called Octopath Traveler, an old school JRPG, it was recently released on Steam, by the way.
    I've been playing Finding Bigfoot for a while after watching some old Markiplier videos. It's a pretty stupid but beautiful game on Unity engine, a bit similar to numerous Slenderman games.

    my friend and I had talked about both of us getting a switch, but then he bought one and I never did. about a month or so go by and he starts not playing it a lot, and I still wanted one, so I ended up buying it. I don't play it nearly enough myself, but it's still nice to have. recently I found out that South Park: The Stick of truth and Fractured But Whole are both available on the switch{not much of a gamer, so I didn't know that}. so I'm going to be getting those at some point I reckon.

    Both South Park games are excellent on the switch.They released the 2nd game 1st on switch.FBW is the best of the 2 games as it improved on everything and made the combat system more fun.There’s a decent amount of replay value with so many side quests & missions.

    Astral Chain.Even with the over abundance of cats the game still has a cool vibe to it.

    I guess that's the reason to buy Switch for me now.

    I've been reading about the DeFeo murders a lot lately, so I have Amityville on the brain. That led me to download and place 112 Ocean Ave into my Sims 4 save, but I changed the windows back to quarter-moons because let's face it, the replacement windows IRL are kind of lame:

    Witcher 3. Pretty damn good so far, though maybe I should've played the first two games, because stuff keeps gets referenced to some earlier events.

    Would it help to read the original novels? Or would it just make things more confusing?

    Playing Mass Effect 3, the opening to the Citadel DLC where a bunch of mysterious mercenaries make an attempt on your life, and it is hard as fuck. The game leaves you with a pistol that does a bunch of damage but has barely any ammo (leaving it up to you to find it), and then it throws 5-6 mercs at you per area, and they have this irritating sentry deploy that kamikazes you around cover and murders your health, and they love to spam the shit out of it. I greatly enjoy the challenge though.

    After this, I'm nearing the last mission and I don't want it to ever end because this entire trilogy's been a hell of a ride. Amazing game, amazing series. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves sci-fi.

I love it when you encounter quests and people randomly, but in Skyrim most people are dead : / I remember a quest where you went inside a lighthouse and there were journal entries of this daughter and how falmer and their beasts got in and captured them all, you pretty much knew that "oh well everyone's dead and I just gotta down and kill 'em all" but it could have been that you encounter a survivor of some kind and chit-chat about what happened and stuff like that. anyway that quest made me sad

    Yeah I like Wolf Among Us, I considered playing some more Life Is Strange but it feels like TWAU is more my jam. Been playing it alone and it's liberating, it's fuckin silent around you which is nice haha
    Agree with you recently I just played COD and this one is amazing i think what your thoughts

    I've been on an Elder Scrolls binge lately so...

    Last night I tried The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall (Unity version) which improves movement, visual clarity, and the UI, but largely keeps the game intact as it was out of the box.

    GAMEPLAY. Where to start with this one... imagine DOOM but somehow even more terrifying. Because straight out of the gate, the starting dungeon throws bats, archers, rats, bears, imps that shoot instakill fireballs, skeletons, and more at you as you try to navigate and survive a procedurally generated hellhole labyrinth of endless claustrophobic tunnels and rooms that lead to nowhere. Imagine the goddamn jump scare I had when I'd seen no enemies for like 5 minutes and some muscle man jumps out of the wall down the hallway and nails me with an arrow. I died like twenty times in this exact same way. Sheesh. This is a straight-up horror game and you will never be more relieved to finally see the outside sunlight in any Elder Scrolls game.

    CHARACTER CREATION. You select your province which gives you your starting race (which for me is Black Marsh, always), and though the actual sprite that your character is represented by is pretty static with the exception of faces, the game is really surprisingly in-depth with class creation and whatnot. It gives you a generated background and even armour/weapons (based on questions you answered at the start). I chose a bard specialising in intelligence and sneak, and I got an ebony dagger, which judging by the other games and the enemies I was hitting with it, is pretty goddamn OP.

    THE WORLD. Not too much variety outside of dungeons. Though the map is just a tad bit bigger than the landmass of Great Britain, there will never not be a time where you don't fast travel to wherever you're going, because outside of the usual towns is endless miles of randomly generated terrain that you will never cross in its entirety no matter how long you walk. And enemies don't even spawn out in the wilderness, adding to its uselessness. Interactions with NPCs is pretty much as it is in the later Morrowind, with the exception of three tones of voice you can speak to people with. Not that it matters, because until your disposition is up, you'll get lots of "Oh WHAT NOW", "You're wasting my damn time", and "What the hell do YOU want, Argonian?" which is exactly how I picture people in TES universe talking to each other based on Tamriel's expansive history of warfare and slavery lol. Quests you get from NPCs are timed, even the main quest, which means if you decide to sit on your ass for weeks, the game will give you a pretty big "fuck you" and lock you out of the story. Games from 1996 really did not fuck around.

    THE VERDICT. I'm not that far into the game yet, but based on what I've seen, this is a deep, surprisingly fun, if a bit flawed, pseudo-horror RPG that is basically an all around work of art, from the enemies and the sprite designs, to the scary ass sound effects of screaming skeletons and beyond. There's clearly a few things lore-wise that still needed to be ironed out, but for the most part the foundation for the future games is all here. Even the map of Tamriel has remained the exact same since 1996 and that's pretty damn amazing. Overall, it's a pretty good game that you have to try at least once in your life, especially if you're an Elder Scrolls fanatic.

    Minecraft on PS4, currently playing it right now. I'm still trying to get used to this new update, hopefully I can still use my Elder Scrolls mashup pack.

    I'm currently playing Fallout New Vegas. So far, I have:

    Wiped out Goodsprings
    Botched the REPCONN ghouls' rocket launch
    Helped Boone murder a slaver and took him on as a companion
    Sided with the Kings gang and slaughtered the NCR in a shootout
    Killed Boone when he turned against me due to the above
    Made a beeline for Vegas and confronted Benny
    Seduced, had sex with, and killed Benny in his sleep
    Killed Mr. House by shooting him in the face





    It should be noted that this is the first playthrough I've stuck with long enough to actually get into the Vegas strip. Such a fun game. My karma title is Vegas Crime Lord

    I'm shoulder-deep in Stardew Valley. I'm about 70 hours in (Winter of Year 2). So goddamn addicting. It's the first farming sim game I've ever played and I never imagined how much fun it would be. I find it super relaxing to play after a hard day of work.

    I'm also juggling Life Is Strange 2, I'm on the second episode of that right now. It's moving a bit slowly but I really like Sean and Daniel and want to see what happens to them.
