    Lol no it started at Capcom but was later rockstar San Diego took over development. Guess what else rock star San Diego developed? Red dead redemption and red dead redemption 2. Not that what dev made what has any bearing on what counts as part of a series.
    Nope. Vice city has a subtitle. 4 is 4. You can't just say red dead 2. Because the title is red dead redemption 2, the third game in the series. Saying red dead while ignoring the subtitle is misleading and dumb. Calling vice city GTA 4 is not entirely like calling red dead redemption red dead 2.

    Why are you being so anal about this, Graves?

    Because that's what obscure communities on the internet do.

    Just got Age of Heroes for the C64 emulator. It is sort of like the old Rastan game in the Arcades



    Just to make something clear. It is not that I dislike modern/games of today, I just have not found any title lately that really drew me in from the moment I saw it.

    I was looking at the Borderlands 2 collection but I just don't like the humor in it.

    Trails of Cold Steel was fun but the ending was so much of a player punch I needed to play the second game ASAP. It has Save import, which I always enjoy. So far the Second game is a big improvement, the tone is more consistnetly serious, the School setting is gone (for story reaosns) and the Hard difficulty actually feels hard now, altho that's probably because I no longer have my carefully laid out Endgame builds that allowed me to break the game's back on my knee and I have to build them back up. I am really diggin' it, and with Holy week I can just marathon it no problem.

    Played it on PC back in the day.
    I don't think I ever finished it, though.

    There's only 6 levels with tons of areas in between levels, plus it's not that expensive on Amazon.

    With the shipping to Australia it gets quite expensive (and that is if I could find sellers that ship to AUS to begin with). Amazon AUS doesn't have MDK except a PS1 Japanese game version for $90+ :lmao::

    It's available on GOG.com though (and so is MDK 2).
    But I'm not into shooters anymore, and even A$14 is out of my budget at this time.

    Legends of Eisenwald
    Decent game running on its own in-house programmed engine, with beautiful graphics, fresh gameplay, weak RPG system, hex based half-arsed combat system, and hilarious politically incorrect writing here and there. I'm hooked!

    Shadow of the tomb raider: Worst one in the series. Failing to grabb ledges and/or latch on to things 50% of the time randomly was my nr 1 way of dying. Think i died 5 times to me doing stupid things and/or firefights.
    Almost done but the last dlc has 4-5 latch things in a row and since it is like 50/50 to make one i can't seem to get by the end of the level as i am playing on the hardest difficulty wich means restart from 10-15 minutes back and listen to a shit ton of random radio chatter...

    RAGE: Most forgetabble FPS in ages. I still got the COOP part to do but after that i will never touch it again.

    Fallout 4: Still not done. I got a save now just before choosing faction so i will make a normal run to the end for the BOS then reload and do all the others for the achievements and then i will probably never touch it ever again.

    Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemptiom: Struggeling a lot to get into this one for some reason. It was ok untill i noticed you get followers and everything went meh.

    Divine Divinity: Probably going to pick this up instead of VTMR soon.

    I hear good things about Divine Divinity and no one ever mentions Redemption. I have it but I don't know if I'm even interested in it.

    I finished Divinity original sins 1 like a year ago and haven't gotten far into the second one since i am playing other games. But story wise i was told to play this next so i went back in time hehe.
    Redemption does not seem to have aged well and i am not sure if i can waste all the hours on it but i might do it just to have it done.

    As far as I understand it, D:OS 1 & 2 are not much like the other Divinity games. Divine Divinity is like ARPG/Diablo games, Divinity I & II are action based third person games, and I have no idea what Beyond Divinity is.

    Octopath Traveler is pretty great, but do you know what else is great?

    On JRPG's, I've been playing I Am Setsuna and while it's pretty decent it's been doing that thing that annoys me to no end of having that unique track show up in a dramatic moment, then fade out immediately as the generic combat/boss theme of the fight after plays, with the former not ever bloody showing up again
