    Monster Hunter World

    Thought I'd share this here! Helped my friend out with a hunt recently, and got a pretty neat kill screen. Daora is frustrating enough because it moves around a LOT and for two glaive-users, he's a real pain in the neck... somehow... SOMEHOW I killed him with a Nitrotoad. Here he is going 'boom,' and the beastie dropped a second later. I was pleased.

    Life lessons in games

    Those are all valuable qualities to have. I think especially leadership; some people are just naturals at it, some have to learn it, and some never do. Yet without a leader in any given group, the structure falls apart and there's no aim and it's chaotic and tends to fall apart easily. I could use something like that. My creativity can be lacking at times. I used to be so in touch with it, but then I got older and it seems to have wandered off. Maybe I should give the Sims a try.
  4. I was talked into getting this game by three IRL friends and some chick on TrollX, but I'm so happy I did because by all that is holy this game is so much fun. If you're somebody like me who loves boss fights, this is your messiah. It's like a more dedicated Shadow of the Colossus and the aim of the game is almost entirely to take down big targets. There are nearly twenty different weapons you can choose from in your arsenal, and they all play immensely different (I've taken to the glaives myself.) Every monster is so different and poses its own challenges, and there is no one set of armour you can take into every fight and win; you have to learn what loadout works best for each monster and prep accordingly. I love that bit. Who else has been playing?

    A Way Out

    I've actually bought this game on Xbox and it's still sitting on my shelf waiting to be played. My boyfriend said he'd play it with me, but he's been filling up his schedule a lot lately since he took up coaching. So I've just been biding my time. =)

    A Way Out

    The only thing I can describe "A Way Out". The Mafia franchise and Army of Two unborn baby. This game has action, suspense, betrayal, and whatever else you can guess. You and your partner will never want to put the game down and if you do, you'll just want to pick it up again. In short the game is awesome. The game starts off with you and your partner picking one of the two characters you'll be using; Vincent and Leo. Vincent, is a college graduate being sent to jail on a murder rap. Leo, is a gangster in for for whatever you can think off. Now I can tell you that it matters which character you'll be using, but the only thing that differs between them, is strength. Vincent is sightly stronger then Leo, making him useful in pick-ups from high ledges. Leo can't do that. That's all. The game plays like chapters, you're playing as Vincent and Leo in memory, while the real characters are on a plane heading out of the states reminiscing about everything until that point. Now I'm not going to give you guys to much information on the game, because I wouldn't want anyone to spoil this game for me at all. What I can tell you is that this game goes deeper then two criminals escaping from jail. It digs into their lives having you get emotional invested in your characters progression. You want your character to escape, you want them to get to their families, you want them to ride off into the sunset with smiles on their faces; but you;ll soon see that's not going to happen. In an instant, all of that will change in a way you never saw coming. Me and my partner could barely believe it and it had us on our toes even more than the game already had. Speaking of partner, YOU NEED ONE!!! Not just anyone, not the person that you find online, because that isn't going to work. Finding a random person maybe your only way to play, but I highly doubt anyone gets this game without a partner in mine. It's a lot easier to play with someone you know, the chemistry will already be there, you know what person should be doing what in certain circumstances, and when you want to grab an achievement you don't have to force that person to help. I'm making this game sound like it's awesome in every way, but like with everything it has it's flaws. The mechanics for the driving isn't the best, it's stiff and loose all at the same time making it a bit harder to escape the cops. Especially, since all the cops come after you like you're in GTA and have 5 stars. When you finally get to use a gun you're over the freaking moon, until you see the gun mechanics and how many you get to use. You have 5 in your arsenal. Shotgun, sniper, rifle, sub-machine, handgun. All of them fire differently, aim isn't great and it takes about a clip to take down someone. You can easily look pass all of this, because the game makes up for it. To sum it all up, get the game. You and your friend will have a great time.
  7. Good day everyone, I was just wondering, what are your thoughs on roleplaying in Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games? It was quite common back in the day, and unfortunately it's becoming less frequent... I still enjoy it as much as in the beginning though, quite a unique form of metagaming. Some examples of MMORPGs where Role Play is very common are Star Wars the Old Republic and The Lord of the Rings Online.

    Life lessons in games

    I don’t know if it counts as a life lesson, but things like the Sims 4 (I’ve also played 2 and 3 growing up) have taught me some modicum of patience. And they also really help me with being more in touch with my creative side, as well as being more willing to try different things in life
  9. Kohloo

    What's your current/favorite game?

    I haven’t really played much of anything except for Sims 4 in the past year or so. Life is getting more stable though, and I might start playing some more things once we get a new place and have our shit a bit more figured out. Right now we’re just mostly focused on saving money and paying off some bills

    Character names/handles

    I’m not very creative with my handles. Usually some variant of coluseven. Even my name on the forum is a variant of it haha

    Role check

    I don’t play any MMOs, so I guess this doesn’t really apply to me. But for my other stuff, I’d say I’m pretty casual about games. When it comes to racing type games though (Mario Kart in particular), I have a lot of fun being super competitive and trash talking. All in good fun though, I even let people know ahead of time that I’m not actually being serious and fully encourage them to do it back to me

    Life lessons in games

    Of course games teach lessons, and one I really admire is one taught by the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games. It has taught me optimism, caution, leadership and how to inspire others, and most importantly, the value of a legitimate friendship.
  13. (And vice-versa!) I'll wager a lot of us have been gamers for a fair number of years, yes? Have there been any life lessons learned from playing the games you play? Or, even inversely, have you been able to apply certain lessons to the games you play? There's widely agreed sentiment claiming that sports stand to teach players many things such as teamwork, discipline, and even teach you some proper fitness. They are far from wrong, but I think video games can teach you some things, too! I can say with utmost certainty that League of Legends has taught me patience, and helped me understand what an impact attitude can have in a team setting. The same can probably be said for any MOBA game. You can be the most skilled player in your region, and still lose games if you forsake the rest of your team. You can't just go off on your own and win single-handedly; your team must be able to keep up together or you will lose when it comes to the late game team fights. That is why the strongest/most skilled on the team needs to be able to help the other four out rather than simply focusing on themselves. They need to be aware of the big picture, because ultimately, objectives are what will win the game, not the K/D/A. I've seen even the most hopeless of games turn around not because the players "got gud," but because they didn't give up. Likewise, the game has taught me patience. Sometimes, I see my team make mistakes. Realllllly stupid, shouldn't-have-even-happened mistakes, and MOBA games are known for being very punishing. Unfortunately, the result is often that person getting berated and flamed by their teammates. And we aren't talking constructive criticism, these are outright insults offering no solutions. Having been on the receiving end, I have chosen to never to talk down to someone for a mistake no matter how upset it makes me feel. I understand the game has a steep learning curve. I've learned how to build a bridge, get over the problem, adapt, and find a new solution if the mistake has affected the previous one. That is the only way to win- surely that is the common goal between the five of us. Kicking somebody when they are already down is only hurting yourself in the long run. As somebody in a leadership position IRL, practicing these skills in-game have helped me tremendously at my job. When my superiors talk to me about making a mistake, I try not to take it personally, and take the time to calm down and reflect on where I went wrong and how to proceed in the right direction. The common goal between us is to get the job done, and to do right by our patients and mission. It helped me realise that even if I am more experienced than my coworkers, I still need to make sure that they understand the importance of their jobs and ensure that they succeed in them. If any one of them are doing poorly, it reflects badly on the lot of us. That all said, this has basically become my daily mantra:

    What's your current/favorite game?

    my favorite has to go to good old Team Fortress 2, the gameplay is always fun despite sticky spam and getting five spies on a twelve man team. though what it gets me with are its very memorable characters, playable or not. it supports a ton of playstyles to, from sweaty tryhard scout mains on badwater to friendly sandvich dispensing hoovies on 2fort.

    What's your current/favorite game?

    My favorite game of all time is Okami HD. The story, graphics, and even the music are just stunning and gorgeous I highly recommend this if you like drawing and Asian culture. It also has a unique fighting system as well that is quite interesting and fun I think. As for other games I pretty much like to try anything and like many other games as well. I play on PS4 , PC , And sometimes Nintendo 3Ds XL.

    Dragon Age

    Little (maybe largely) known fact about me: I love Dragon Age. I've fangirled it probably more than Harry Potter. I've been active on the DA subreddit since it's conception. I've written hella fanfiction. I've shipped it all. I've read all the books. I tin-foil hat the lore every Tuesday. I'm always open to discussion. So I thought I'd share some talking points for anybody who is a fan of the series like myself. 1- Which game is your favourite? 2- Favourite player-character? 3- Favourite NPC, follower or otherwise? 4- Mages. What's your stance? 5- Best/funnest class to play as? 6- Ships. 7- Did Loghain do the right thing, or did he betray Cailan? 8- Is your Warden alive, or did s/he kill the Archdemon? 9- What's the absolute hardest choice you had to make? 10- What do you want to see in the next Dragon Age? I'll kick it off here myself. 1- I love them all! I feel that Origins had the strongest player identity, as I was able to feel the most connected to my Warden, Cinneide, a Dalish warrior. DA2 had the best writing, IMO. The clever interactions between the characters and the events leading up to you-know-what are what make this game stand out to me. The gameplay itself wasn't as strong, but the story is what helped bridge the gap between Origins and Inquisition. Speaking of DA:I, the plot and introduction of Corypheus started strong. What's interesting here, however, was the story within the story. So to speak. (Something something Fen'Harel.) The character development is immense, and I adore that Cole was brought along to round about the events of Asunder. My only grievance is that Evangeline and Rhys were not given the same attention. 2- The Warden. Hawke is a close second, but I'm being a little biased because I feel that the character I was able to play in Origins is entirely mine. And I love the little bastard. There's so much room to flesh out a personality for the Warden. For example, mine had an originally deep-set hatred of humans, but even deeper hatred for the darkspawn after what happened with him and Tamlen. He very reluctantly joins the Grey Wardens out of nothing more than necessity, and proceeds to be a total dick to everyone he meets. Who should he meet but Morrigan, a witch with much the same disposition, despite being human herself. Of course they fall in love, and Morrigan eventually bears his child. However, he turns her down when she asks him to perform her ritual; it was the taint that tore him from his Clan and gods be damned if he'd let that evil live on in his children. So she dumps him. This is the reason my Warden decided to kill the Archdemon himself. There was nothing heroic about it. Though I do feel bad, as Morrigan seems to feel remorse for it ten years later. 3- Cole. The poor kid. I read Asunder shortly before DA:I was released, so when I met him in-game there was this strange urge to want to protect him like my own son, especially after he lost contact with Rhys and Evangeline. He's far too innocent, and the more he begins to understand the world, the more he wants to become like us. Faults and all. Bless him. 4- This series is known for its grey areas, and mages and their Circles fall into a grey area so big you'll wonder if you're in the Twilight Zone. So basically in Dragon Age there is this thing called the Fade. Without diving too deeply into the origins of that, the Fade is a realm that exists almost side-by-side with Thedas, and is home to both spirits and demons. Weird stuff happens in the Fade, and it is the realm we travel to when we dream (unless you're a Dwarf. Dwarves don't dream and can't use magic. But we're not talking about them.) A mage is a human, elf, or Qunari born with an unsevered connection to the Fade, and can open rifts to the Fade and use its power in what we call magic. Here's the catch, though. Spirits and demons can find those rifts and use them to exit the Fade. For this reason, mages are considered extremely dangerous, and are usually quarantined in things called Circles where they can study and practice under the close watch of the Templars. I'm going to take the unpopular route and state that if mages cannot even trust themselves, then they need to be kept under close watch. Sorry, Anders. It's a sad and unfortunate situation, but that's currently how it is in the DA universe. 5- Frick I love warriors. There's so many reasons to love them. I can take a beating and I can give a beating. They get the coolest armour. Nobody really hates you unless you're an elf, I guess. They are just so satisfying to play. You'll understand when you hear a dragon screech in pain when you shield block its claws at the right moment. 6- Despite my previous dismissal of mages... I'm a sucker for tragedy. Hawke/Anders all the way. Bonus points for a mage Hawke. A classic story of one lover taking things too far, and the other having to put a knife in his belly. 7- LOGHAIN DID NOTHING WRONG! Cailan was literally about to betray his own country! After reading the Stolen Throne I can sympathise hardcore with Loghain. He gave everything he had to free Ferelden from Orleisian occupation. He was bros with Maric. Then Cailan does what, now? He was getting some action from Empress Celene, that's what. What an oaf. Anyway, Loghain warned him time and time again to fall back from Ostagar and bolster their ranks, but Cailan did not listen. Everyone knew they were going to die. Due to the fact that the Wardens sided with Cailan, that is why Loghain branded them traitors, even if the message got a little convoluted. Loghain knew what the darkspawn were about, and chose the lesser of two evils by withdrawing his army before they could join Cailan's in annihilation. 8- Guess I already answered this one. 9- Here Lies the Abyss. FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUU. I definitely cried afterward. I'm so sorry Varric. Don't hate me. I'm a monster. 10- Strangely? I'd love to see the return of the Inquisitor in one form or another. I feel Inky's story wasn't exactly... finished? Perhaps s/he can become a mentor of sorts for the next PC. After all, DA:I was able to touch on the Warden and the Champion of Kirkwall- why not the Inquisitor next time around?

    What's your current/favorite game?

    There's a huge difference between my favorite game and my current favorite but for now I'll just mention what I've been playing recently: CrossCode - An indie ARPG game that's on Steam. It's single player but the story is really well done for an early-access game and so far I've gotten 20+ hours out of it and I've loved every second. Also the art style is pixelated but the combat and interactions are very smooth and pleasing to the eye. It's a little pricey at $19.99 (I got it on sale) but you'll get well over a dollar an hour of entertainment and it's still got lots up updates and additions to the story coming in the future. I'd look it up a bit first but to anyone who is a fan of games like this will surely fall in love with it. One last thing to note is that I've been playing it with a PS4 controller so I don't really know how the game feels if you're planning on playing with keyboard and mouse (some parts may actually work better with a mouse). Thanks for reading my promotion of this game I've been playing :3

    What's your current/favorite game?

    Can't really say what my favorite game is, but nowadays i play stuff like FPS, action/adventure and platformers. Really enjoy the Arkham games and Call of Duty. Don't play games for competition just for fun mostly.
  20. Wedgy

    What's your current/favorite game?

    I can't put a tab on my *favourite* game, but there are games I play more frequently than others. Currently I play both WoW and LoL online, and I'm junking out to AC: Black Flag currently. I have a habit of replaying the Dragon Age games quite a bit, mostly Origins. I could talk about Dragon Age universe all day, guys.
  21. Whutever42

    What's your current/favorite game?

    Don't know if it has to be an MMO but my current game is Final Fantasy 9. Heard that it was amazing and from what I can see the game meets expectations.

    Changed my mind… my favorite game is Pokémon Mystery Dungeon explorers of sky. Again. It's the only game that has ever made me cry a bit, in my life.

    What's your current/favorite game?

    currently my favorite game is killing floor 2 it is a old game but still i join online matches and have fun with the diffrent variation of characters and enimies to fight and kill. also the guns are very creative with guns like the freeze thrower and the spit fires and i play it while watching some nice anime
  25. liamlunden

    What's your current/favorite game?

    I used to play a lot of call of duty and Xbox games when I was younger and I got tired of it after a while. One day I saw my uncle playing dota 2 and decided to try pc gaming. As I have a very shitty PC I couldn't run many things but one game I could run is wow. Wow is pretty much the only game I play right now. I've been playing a lot of legion and its a very fascinating experience. Its very different for me and I enjoy it a lot. I also used to play minecraft a lot and I still do a little bit
  26. Roxeg

    What's your current/favorite game?

    Not necessarily a pay-to-win game, for some like ESO are really immersive and the leveling is done pretty well, I can explore dungeons and areas and I level up along, much more fun when in a group.
