    Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    I’ve been hooked back into No Man’s Sky. Hard.

    The updates these guys have made are outstanding. Absolutely outstanding. All for “free”. This should have been included day 1. It wasn’t, they fixed it, so kudos to them. It sounds like this won’t be the last set of major updates either.

    The gameplay is still built on the same hunter/gatherer formula. But they’ve made it more complex. The missions are more varied but can still be a bit too formulaic. The worlds have become more beautiful and the photo mode has been significantly updated. It’s Minecraft if Minecraft were beautiful. It’s a gorgeous game. I’ve spent a bit of time exploring worlds just to enter photo mode and get that great shot. A nice nod to the photogs out there. Easy to get lost exploring worlds and watching the scenery. I know it’s a video game, but some of the shots I’ve taken in the new renderings are surprisingly fulfilling. Even as someone who is known in his circles for his photography.

    I still think a lot of people still won’t find it compelling but the reviews of NMS Next have been overwhelmingly positive. Especially compared to NMS Release Day. But you don’t need to compare the two for Next to get a good rating.

    If you bought it day 1, download the gigs of updates and give it a fair shot again. If you haven’t but you enjoy Minecraft, wait for it to go on sale this Turkey Day and pick it up.

    I have enjoyed my 3 hours or so at this point. People will ***** about this game regardless of what they do but I think they took a step in the right direction.

    Binding of Isaac: Repentance announced.

    If (and that's a bit of an if) it releases, it will officially include (most of) the Antibirth mod. Squee.

    Monster Hunter World has been pretty fun (37 hrs played). Its sold 8m copies, so i guess that says something.

    I like that co-op/multiplayer isnt forced, but is always available.

    I'm getting on PC as well (aug 9), as i have more friends playing there.

    I'll have to get new PS3 controllers next time I want to pop NCAA in.

    Looks like that'll be an online purchase since the stores still want 45 for 'em.

    Picked up NCAA Basketball 2010 (ps3) and NCAA Football 2013 (360).

    They did not.have the 2014 football or i would have gotten that one. But 2013 has RG3.

    Also got Monster Hunter World for half off, new.

    Been playing an indie lately. MachiaVillian.

    You control monsters in a mansion building/management sim. Goal is to kill visitors efficiently and without suspicion.

    Also been couch co-oping Divinity Original Sin with the wife.

    50/20 mode on Ultimate Custom Night has been beaten by a little known Czech YouTuber named Rhemery.

    People (including the creator) legitimately thought this mode would turn out to be impossible. It required a Twitch Plays Pokemon level of effort and RNG luck.

    The run, so you can see how insane this is:

    I love a good park management sim. So I'm playing a ton of Jurassic Park Evolution.

    I believe there are 48 total dinos to get. Including ones from Fallen Kingdom, and the designer hybrids.

    Really enjoying Conan Exiles. There's a lot to do. If you have the staying power you can put a lot of time into the game and not be done. Some people have plowed through it all already. I imagine they had a group. With a group you could get through faster but playing solo for the most part takes a lot of time and effort.

    Saints Row 2 was 4 bucks, so I took a flyer.

    Runs...okay I guess - some pretty severe framerate drops even with Gentlemen of the Row installed, I can see why it's regarded as an awful port.

    May Gaben have mercy on your wallets.

    Death Stranding looks amazing, but i dont understand the actual gameplay yet.

    Super Hero fans will like the new Spider-man. Not my thing.

    If you like samurai, Ghost should be right up your ally.

    Last of Us 2, all anyone can talk about is 2 women kissing. That doesnt bode well for the game itself. But im sure it'll be fine.
    We’re approaching the end of a console generation, and with games being so expensive and time consuming to develop, we’ll rarely get E3’s like we used to.
