    I finished Tides of Numinera earlier in the week. The plot was OK, but the game ended very abrupltly. What really redeemed it for me though was the setting – it was so interesting wandering around in that world.

    I’ve started Mass Effect Andromeda, but tis probably a little early for me to have a firm opinion on it yet.Report

      I’m distressed to hear that Torment ended abruptly… the previous one ended with a sense of inevitability and, almost, dread. You could see it coming like a train.Report

        Since Shepard isn’t in Andromeda you don’t have to worry about the fact you can’t transfer your character over at least.

        I’m distressed to hear that Torment ended abruptly

        The end itself developed enough, but the game shifts into the endgame too abruptly IMO. And you don’t get the explanation of what precisely is going on until too late in the game.Report

    Fallout 3 is fairly permissive with regards to gathering stuff and attributes, New Vegas even more so. It’s the reason they gave a hardcore setting to New Vegas, right, for the people that missed the grind and thought they were too powerful at the beginning?Report

    Last game I was playing was a grinder until I looked up how to edit the save file and boost my cash levels.

    Made the game much more enjoyable, actually.

    I will add that game producers really need to invest in voice actors & good copy editing. The story was good, but the dialog & narration were stilted, and the voice acting during cutscenes had me wondering if they just grabbed some developers with cool voices and had them do it.Report

      My friend who does game development does occasionally do cool voices (guild of Dungeoneering). Costs a mint to get him to do anything, though.

      I mentioned a week or two back about the guy whose voicework got him on Penny Dreadful… (so people are actually hiring quality actors these days, even for your quasi-indie things).Report

    Playing Fallout 4 still……

    I’d forgotten what a major time since these games were. I spent one day….DAY, getting Mccready to “love” me to get his perk. Now I’m working on Piper. I must say, she looks fetching in combat armor and underwear. Sadly, it affords too little protection so I’m going for mechanic’s jumpsuit until I can find a more suitable outfit. God, Bethesda needs to code some sexier outfits. Oh, and why can’t we have sex scenes like they have in Witcher huh? I’m also in the process of kitting out my “home place” house in Diamond City.Report
