Trying to brainstorm a way of making "rolling for stats" viable in my Fallout PnP without it being broken. Could use some input. Jul 8, 2020 at 6:21 PM

      I don't know what kind of slav magic the Metro games work on, but fuck these look amazing and run buttery smooth, not to mention being old

        Pretty sure Last Light was used as a graphical benchmark for awhile. They're not bad games and I really enjoyed the first two the first time I played them.

        That sucks to hear. Nothing got me more in the mood to mod New Vegas then from listening to Morricone music. RIP.

        Can second on the morricone-fallout creativity connection, I used Dollars trilogy music in a lot of my Fallout pnp campaign sessions. One of the main villains also used Morricone's "Man with the harmonica"

      Choosing between playing Metro 2033 in Russian or English AKA Missing any side dialogue or horrible voice acting - Which one do I pick?

        I wish I had gone with Russian. The terrible accents and hearing Yuri Lowenthall and Steve Blum everywhere really took me out of it. I also didn't feel like I was gaining much from the non-subbed NPC dialogue either.

        F.E.A.R is probably my all time favorite FPS ever. The game still looks good and the AI is still well made.

        Halo. I'm a fan of the original Halo games and I think they're well presented but the setting is undeniably generic/cliche. I think Halo's strength is brushing together all these cliches and presenting them in a charming, fun manner but some fanboys reacted as if I'd killed their mother

        Interesting. I effectively just want a patched Fallout 1 with the endings restored and don't really want much else in terms of changes. Is Et Tu worth checking out?

        It is, but it adds a bit more than what you want (FO2 weapons hidden around the world, FO2 unarmed moves, a vehicle). If that's not your thing- FIXT is completely playable, but it won't have some issues fixed for some time.

      Is the FIRST "Last Of Us" actually any good? Someone tried to sell it to me as being Half-Life 2 style in feeling like a grand journey

        Is good, not nearly as GOOOOOOOD as most critics say in my opinion. The gameplay is interesting, altho I only played it on hard, but it does have a different dynamic t othe Uncharted games while having the same basic fight mechanics. Story is a bit on the cliche side nowadays but it has it's moments and good characterization. Solid 7 out of 10.

        I thought the whole UCA/Chiral brainless hippie optimism was very misaligned and dumb the entire time until the ending completely reworked it. Reminded me of how I was frustrated with MGS2 until I finished it and it all "Clicked" and retroactively repainted everything

        The UCA being this superficially "positive" connectivity that's in fact a technocracy that strips everything of privacy and reduces human interaction to shallow conversations and literally Likes, and Sam just saying fuck it all and heading off into the wild off the grid with his singular, actual, meaningful human connection also saved the game for me.

        The snoy brand of movie games (that are often hackneyed copies of better material; like how all rockstar games are meshing of different crime movies or westerns in the case of RDR) must die so that the new age of gaming will take form. Hopefully in the form of VR fully interactive 80+ hour porn adventures.

        Sorry but the only porn that will be allowed is gay and trans porn or porn made solely for women. Can't have that male gaze oppressing imaginary women. Check your privilege you patriarchal, cis-shit, white male.

        Yep. It's one of those things that I have learned a few years ago. Never try to do everything your first run or you might burn out and miss the best parts of the game. Second time through I played on Hard and it made the game a little more fun too since i could actually die early game. I think 8 is the one where things really kick into gear and it lasts the whole way through.

      Visually and gameplay wise Death Stranding is impressing me but this story is Kojima at his worst. Reminds me of MGS4 but with better class.

        He is one of the best parts in the game. Followed by Cliff. Sam gets better near the end. Less like Daryl from Walking Dead.

        I actually already like Sam. He gives me huge MGS1 Snake vibes. This whole game aesthetically makes me wish we got another futuristic Metal Gear that didn't look like shit. More MGS1/MGS2 than MGS4 or the Cold War stuff. Shinkawa is a god at designing cool sci-fi shit
