    Yeah I watched and friend play the Gwent game recently and yeah it is more complex and dynamic. But, on my first playthrough I ignored everything gwent related, quests, buying cards, playing merchants, nothing. Also, this playthrough Geralt is going to break up with Yen post Djinn. And then fuck any witch or wench or succubi and be a bit of a cad. Still not going full dick cuase Im planning on Ciri living; just Geralt being free to bump bump Kiera Triss Shani etc. Ive made my way to Skellige earlier then I should have buy surviving the boat/pirates and washing up on shore.

    Finished Bloodborne.

    Fantastic work of art. On par with original Dark Souls in scope and vision.

    I fret I'll hate it if that much as it seems in Dark Souls 3, as its focus, are the same. Not like I'll be able to tell until a PS4 rains from the sky into my lap preferably with a BB disc in it.

    In other news, Red Strings Club, from the Gods Will Be Watching developers, Deconstructeam, released just yesterday. Really looking forward to it.

    Same focus? Where did you get that? I'd say that statement is completely false. Similar, maybe, same, no.

    If anything, DS3 is a somewhat shabby mixture of DS1 and Bloodborne, with some DS2 sprinkles thrown in the mix. Things which are taken from Bloodborne and put in DS3 aren't integrated well there - whereas in Bloodborne they work perfectly. Don't be quick to judge BB on some similarities DS3 has to it. I assure you, they are entirely different beasts (no pun intended).

    In any case, BB is a superior game to DS3 (and DS2) in every way. Original, well-made and tightly-knit and most importantly, self-contained. I hope they never make a sequel.

    That being said, it's not without it flaws. It has several, some of which are quite annoying and disappointing in my eyes, but not a huge sin.

    Controversial opinion: Breath of the Wild's weapon system is actually pretty good, and anyone who stills ends up running out of Weapons in the middle of battle after the first 4 hours is just bad at games.

    Problem is now that the whole side of looting resulting on weapons is fucking pointless now that I have three elemental weapons of each class and element respectively, the Master Sword and four royal weapons? I can just chug a +attack meal and wail with the Master Sword or whatever I pick from the ground and get done with it. Hell last "Extreme Combat Trial" I did I didn't even break any of my weapons, same for the last Divine Beast boss. The only real challenge left for me is to balance and economize my weapons to see if I should pick anything else up! I'm not even accounting those dungeon reward weapons that you can fix once broken or exploiting the respawning items for easy weapon restocking.

    True, it still has some issues, but the people complaining about running ou of weapons mid battle or having no rupees at all are just bad at the game.

    Currently playing KCD and after 40 hours...managed to get stuck with a quest bug that basically make me cant continue the story. Applying patch 1.25 doesnt fix anything so i probably gonna wait for few month given how buggy the game is right now. Maybe until the modding tool coming out so don't have to rely official patches.

    The news I head about their modding tools/set wasn't encouraging:
    I assume there will be mods, but I doubt there will be complex ones (like new locations/maps or Total Conversions). If they won't release a modding kit.

    Well someone mention that Cryengine SDK would work just good since its based on the same engine.

    Also
    Probably not as same as modding tool, but a good news still.

    I saw a game on Steam today that is called Radiation City, a story driven survival game. (there is also a sequel called Radiation City on the mobiles that reminds me a lot of Stalker that may come to the PC)
    Has anyone here played the game? And what did they think of it?

    Most reviews are pretty positive but make clear that I should not expect an AAA experience but there are also some negative reviews that mention that there are issues with the gameplay.

    @Walpknut and other resident weaboos, should I get Persona 5 and what should I expect from the game? Is it necessary to play previous titles?

    If you like JRPGs you should get. All Persona games are stand alone stories so there is absolutely no need to play the others to ejoy it, altho you might miss some references. What you should expect is a stylish game, with a fast paced and reasonably complex battle system and on your first run, expect missing a lot of shit, because it works on a calendar system.

    Definetly expect some Animu bullshit in terms of humor and the whole Waifu element.

    Vermintide 2. It's not bad, but you're starting to see where they're falling into the hollywoodian trap of "MOAR". More special enemies, bigger explosions, etc. It tends to devaluate the experience in the long run.

    I am busy playing Boktai 3: Sabata's Counterattack.
    I like the Boktai series in general but I do wish that its universe had been a bit more expanded on in world lore as that is one of the things that draws me to action-adventure games. It is very minimal now.

    And I also would have preferred it the number of additional dungeons had not been reduced over the first three games.
    If I have to grind, which I already loathe, I would have preferred a variety of dungeons rather than going through two or three places over and over again.

    24 hours into KCD and I failed a sidequest because I forgot about finishing it on time due to other quests.

    Luckily my save before failing was not too far back so no progress was lost. Though I need to redo the archery contest for the cask of wine though... and my archery skill is still rather low even after killing bandits with shots to the head.
