    A couple of thoughts.

    The KH series, as an overall whole is a steaming pile of garbage in the story department. Everything else it does; controls, looks, interface, skills, and abilities is just plain gold. Now, if only they had a decent, or at the very least understandable story to go along with it. But instead they just follow the cryptically written notes that Nomura sends to the writing team from his isolation chamber. So I won't be playing KH3, but I will admire it for good it looks and plays.

    As far as Anthem goes, I'd be willing to try the game out when the open beta starts, but I'm keeping my expectations for it, very, very low.



  • Update on Dekker:

    In the Argo mission, the opposition's Quickdraw pounded my Blackjack, sending one of my better gunners to the ground. I had to send in Dekker in his Spider to cause a commotion, which he did by attacking a Shadow Hawk from behind.

    The Shadow Hawk and Quickdraw were not amused, and gang-pounded the Spider into the dirt. Dekker took 4 injuries.

    Still. Did. Not. Die.

    At least he'll have a modified Jenner (-2 M Lasers; +2 J Jets; add. armor) to roam around in when he wakes up in 100 days.



  • Resident Evil 2 remake!

    I got it for an early birthday present. My inner middle school child is dancing right now.



  • I just tried out the demo for Crying Suns.

    Very FTL influenced, the demo is only the 'first sector' but I am deeply impressed by the graphics, atmosphere and general tone. The gameplay probably does need some tweaking but one key thing is that you REALLY want to upgrade your fuel gathering as soon as you have the scrap available.

    @Ganymede I know I will upset some folks, but my reaction to this little thing is still:

    kill it with fire

    ETA: I played since day one, Dekker was my first KIA. For the first two play-through attempts.

    @Thenomain I didn't think the MB/Mouse was total crap in playing it during the Alpha but the game does need some work. Mostly the yaw sometimes was irksome.

    Since you brought it up. RIP Andromeda, I had such high hopes for you.


  • Pitcrew

    I was anticipating not to like Anthem however after playing the demo all night last night and this morning I'm soooooo much enjoying the crafting system.

    PEW PEW!

  • I do not understand my brother.

    We have dipped back into Minecraft on a friend's server and he has apparently mined 31 diamonds already, but his house does not yet have a roof. Priorities!



  • It's official:

    I am going to play the ass off of Anthem.



  • @Ghost I presently have a lot of feelings about certain parts of the Anthem storyline.



  • @Sparks A lot of good feelings?

    Let's just say that right now, I'm emotionally invested in a particular part of the storyline.
