    Completely forgot the multiplayer is free. Still gonna wait for a sale to buy the campaign and wait for the devs to fix up the multiplayer.

    Yeah, the season pass is once again only worth it if you pay for it and also play it a fuckton. Which is always annoying. And it's the only way to really unlock cosmetics as far as I can see and that's about the only progression that exists. They did expand a little on the playlists though but it still needs more.

    Prime Gaming is better than Epic Games. Can you believe that?

    I still remember people and websites acting like Epic game store was the competitor to Steam and that Valve should do something soon or they might fall behind. Valve did nothing and now look. lol

    Epic still ain't even got a cart, how they gonna make Valve sweat? Steam's got a ton of features and an entrenched userbase. Good luck being a competitor to that with a few free games that might interest someone. All the while, getting temporary exclusives that annoy people.

    They implemented a "Cart" at the end of last year IIRC.

    Fair I guess. I last checked maybe last summer. Still weird how it took 3 years for a "Steam competitor" to implement a feature that's very common among storefronts. I get that it's not entirely necessary but it's really convenient to stack up everything you plan on buying into one page and see the total and then the total with taxes if applicable.

    The only other place I really buy games is on GOG (and a few on Itch). I bought Titanfall 1 and 2 on Origin because they were only available there back then and I wanted to play them. I grabbed some free games on Epic but haven't kept up with doing that because I never end up playing them. Also some Beta run of a game I tried out on Epic says it's uninstalled but it never leaves my installed games list and won't let me get rid of it there which is minutely annoying.

    Epic is still poopy.

    Though Valve is also poopy.
    I need to get around to pirating my entire library for DRM-free copies of the games I supposedly "own".

    It's funny, but for a long time I ignored even free games from Epic store (not wanting yet another digital store app)...until I realized that the Epic store was auto-installed with UE4.

    Only issues i had with that game was the needing to return to planets several times over, There was always something that put a stop to the exploring until you have done x or y.
    Then we also have the issue where the old ME games had a broad difference in characters. From flamboyant to brutish thugs, In Andromeda it feels like everyone is a second away from a good cry and asking for a hug. Even the most badass characters.
    Some guy got hurt/almost died"?" and i asked him if he was ok and got a respond close to "You ain't hitting this without buying me dinner first!".. Ooook..?

    I think people judged it early on and then the hate bandwagon followed. It is not the best game but it is good.



    All that being said i have played a few games recently.
    100%ed Grim Dawn, The light remake, Phantom doctrine and Days gone! Grim Dawn is probably the best hack and slash game ever and days gone was a good/decent mix between mad max/ubisoft/state of decay. The light is from the same dev that made the indie game 35MM and it was actually even better! Nothing big and fancy but i liked it!
    PD on the other hand.. The game just kept going and going and i played over 20hrs after i got bored just to get it done. It sounded/looked so interesting but god damn it was a snooze feast.

    Edit: Forgot about the Hentry stickmin collection! A throwback to newsgrounds and similar sites. Nothing fancy but a few hours of "gameplay" and quite a few laughs.

    I booted up Pathfinder to check out the character creation then had a seizure.

    "Former Persona developers are making new game"

    Oh yeah?

    "It's about teenagers in a highschool that awaken individualized super powers"

    Uh huh?

    "And they are representations of their psychological issues"

    Feeling daring today, aren't we?

    Got Final Fantasy 4 Complete Collection for the PSP. Played through 4, still love it, and the PSP remake is great. Now in After Years (which is the sequel to 4) and i got reminded why i don't like this game very much.

    Before anything negative, i'll say i actually like some of the new characters, some of the new additions to the universe are pretty cool, i really like the Band mechanic (it's basically team attacks) and some of the new music is great. But god damn is this a severe case of member berries. Just constant callbacks to the previous game, fighting the same exact bosses (in the same exact areas mind you), characters even make remarks of how this just feels the same.

    Mind you, this game came out originally in episodes on mobile devices back in 2008. Yes, episodes (the PSP remake has these as tales, each focusing on one or more major characters). They would release an episode every few months. That meant waiting several months for a complete game and each episode was just repeating a lot of what the previous game did.

    But what's funny is that i was not even aware of a Final Fantasy 4 sequel for years. I think i first became aware of it back in 2013 or something. In 2008 while this was coming out, i was instead playing the Nintendo DS remake of Final Fantasy 4, which is another great remake.

    Pathfinder: Kingmaker is better than any of the games you guys are playing.

    Gonna try Fallout 76 again. See if anything has changed for the better.

    Also I finished a few games.
    I played Supraland, Supraland: Crash (dlc) and Supraland: Six Inches Under which are literal sandbox puzzle games in first person. You are a little kinda foam cutout that traverses a landscape that a child has built up in a sandbox and acquire tools and powerups to solve puzzles and progress and find secrets. It's very metroidvania in that way.

    I've also finished State Of Decay 2's "legacy" game mode twice now. It's a chill game if you got podcasts to listen to cause if you have nothing to listen to then it is very repetitive and boring.

    Supraland is better.
    Fight me.

    Looking this up I see Inon Zur composed for it. He gets around more than I thought.
