I've just discovered a full-game length "mod" of Fallout 2 (my favorite game ever) called "Fallout 1.5" set between the events of 1 and 2. I am nerdgasming all over my laptop right now just thinking about it. It's isometric and everything.

Alright, nutella, come over here and talk the Witness!

I haven't actually quite clocked it yet. There are a few black obelisks that I've finished but a few I haven't (one in particular, the one near the ruins in the desert, I'm a long way off).

I'm trying to be relatively spoiler-free, but what I love most about it is the moments of realisation that you get.

Yeah my housemates and I still haven't entirely finished but we've done most of it and it's amazing. The eureka moments are great and really fun to do with a group of people. And we've had long nerdy interpretive discussions about all the multi-layered metaphors in how the game is constructed, and in how it teaches you to think in "puzzle language," and all that.

Yeah it's amazing.

It's also really fucking hard.

Though Returns is even harder.

I've been playing games from old consoles. Suikoden has been monopolising my time since last week.

I can't speak for anybody else, but we didn't buy it. Too poor.

I have spare money to buy it, but it's so ridiculously expensive in my country I refuse to buy it on launch on principle.

Anyone playing Breath of the Wild yet? My housemates have been playing it (on our Wii U) and it's SO GOOD. Fucking gorgeous art/aesthetics, really really cool mechanics + puzzles, even more cool stuff. Beautiful, fantastically crafted game. I don't really have much familiarity with previous Zelda games other than some passing knowledge but this is a goddamn work of art.

I want it so badly, but unfortunately have other priorities. Maybe one of these days I can just take a week off of work, hole up in my house, spend a few hundred on a switch and Zelda, and play for 18 hours a day 9 days in a row.

...

Wishful thinking.

So I have been pretty balls deep in some really good games.
Nioh was great love the combat and everything about it. It was kinda difficult at first but I never played a dark souls game before. Once I figured out the combat it was on and crackin.

Mass Effect Andromeda - I haven't beaten it year but getting close. I like this game but there are some bugs they need to fix. It's a combat is fun and the story is great it really reminded me that we are just specks of sand in the universe.

Last but not least

Horizon Zero Dawn- It's truely an amazing game in my book. Set in apocalypse like future. You are a girl named Alloy, and your whole goal was to figure out what happened to the people that were on the earth 100 of years before you are. The people like us that are now not there because machine dinosaurs are roaming the earth killing anything that comes near then. I quickly became a master of the bow and arrow striking down any mechanical beast they got near me.The combat is a lot of fun. The story was well told and it was definitely worth checking out.

Rise of the Tomb Raider- it's the second game in the Tomb Raider revamp and it's so much fun. From the combat to the puzzles and even the music and sound effects. It all makes for one hell of a game and had me saying Nathan Drake who?

I wanna bring this thread back to life!! So is there anything that people are playing or have played recently that's worth talking about? I just finished the new Mass Effect game. Before that was Horizon Zero Dawn. I have Nioh sitting around waiting to be beat and just finished the story of Injustice 2.

YAAAASSS Horizon Zero Dawn is amaze-balls. I haven't played it in a bit cuz i've been playing my friend's copy, but a very fun game i'm enjoying so far. Also been playing the Crash Trilogy. I don't remember the game being so hard, but it's "fun" regardless. The lack of an easy infinite lives glich early game is kinda killing me.
