    The Game Thread!

    Rightfully so. Nier: Automata is easily the best game I've played in the past 3 years. I am absolutely in love with it. And as Jim pointed out, one of its greatest strengths is that it works brilliantly as a game and only as a game. It uses the video game medium to the fullest and in a brilliant manner. As for the port, well, Japanese games and the PC are rarely a good combination. I still remember the crappy Dark Souls port. It's not that bad, but still, I would have loved to see an immaculate port for this masterpiece of a video game. Oh, and thanks to Nier I've pre-ordered something for the first time in over 10 years - the Nier: Automata soundtrack. One of the best, if not the best, video game soundtrack I have ever heard.

    Yeah, there's some iffy stuff going on in Andromeda. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zUilV_oemg Still waiting for some proper reviews, but so far it's not looking exactly good.

    I just hope they improve the exploration in Andromeda. It is somewhat the point of the game after all. It was a great idea in the first one, but it got real boring real fast. (Not to mention that I was never a big fan of the Mako.)

    Well, done with Mass Effect 2, time for the third one. Also, my plan of "quickly" blasting through the trilogy didn't work. Clocked in around 38 hours in Mass Effect 2. Welp.

    No, I meant I remember it being more difficult than it is, I didn't mean that it's more difficult than a Souls game. Heck, I had to check the difficulty setting to make sure I'm on insanity. And I reckon Dark Souls II is far more difficult than the third. Mostly due to worse game/level design. Also, I don't think the Souls games are *that* difficult, stuff like Battletoads is still way more difficult than any of the them. But also very clearly unfair.

    Huh, I remembered Mass Effect 2 being much harder on insanity. Then again, I played through the trilogy more times than I could count. By the time Andromeda rolls around I should be done with all the games. Again.

    To be fair, this is more about not wanting bad business practices to be supported. If you support them, they are going to continue, and worst, they could be adopted by other companies. And in my opinion, Nintendo qualifies well and truly with their approach to the Switch. And I'm sick of people buying into the hype and pre-order machinery that was perfected these past few years. It's no longer important to deliver quality as long as you promise it. And it boggles my mind.

    A games console with a complete joke of a launch line up. And judging by past experience with Nintendo, it's not going to get better. Yet people pre-order already instead of, oh I don't know, maybe wait for a Holiday bundle. Which would feature more content for its money, and more games. Because I'm not inclined to support an archaic company in any way shape or form. People can support what they want, they can vote what they want, they can eat what they want, and I can tell others about what I not want and/or like. Just like some people feel inclined to tell the whole world how they feel about a supposed gem in the gaming world and then you discover they're talking about flipping Uncharted. It's weak hardware, there is a lack of software support, hardly any games at launch, the accessories cost a damn fortune, oh and now it features an online service you have to pay for. An online service by a company who has an absolute horrible track record when it comes to online gaming. But at least you get a NES/SNES game every month. Only for that month. After that you have to buy it regularly. What. And like I said, the same way some people tell others about how they pre-ordered a console, I'm allowed to say why I don't do that, and ask why anyone would do that. And the games argument is weak to say the least, especially at this moment in time.

    Horizon does look good. The only problem I have with it is its story. Judging by the very telling trailers, I can already see the twist coming. And if my suspicion is true, I'm not impressed. But then again, I didn't like the story of Dishonored, yet it was easily one of my GOTY candidates for 2012.

    Damn, the Nier: Automata demo is proper good fun. I have a very clear no pre-order policy, but this game sure tests it.

    Oh yeah, I had this video lying about from the first proper 100% career mode race I did in F1 2016. Thanks to some incidents I was in the last point scoring position, I weathered a feisty Kvyat, almost got spun out by Perez, and then got taken out by a honey badger 2(!) laps before the end. I'm amazed I didn't threw the controller straight into my monitor. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbEBrXXJIEA

    Sorry, it's not my job to hype the product of someone else, especially not the product of a company that doesn't even know how to spell third party support ;) (But seriously, $70 for one pro controller?!)

    So, Nintendo Switch, eh? Yeah, I'm not convinced. Only Zelda really took my interest. Can't be bothered with the rest, can't be bothered with the hardware, can't be bothered with the price. Same procedure as with the Wii and the Wii U. Sure, there might be some decent or even great games, but do I want to buy an entire system just for 3-4 great games? Surely not. Also, again with Skyrim? The worst Elder Scrolls title is supposed to convince me to buy your console? And don't even get me started on the effing paid online service, or the ridiculously overpriced accessories.

    Got gifted F1 2016. Thought I give it a try, started a career with Sauber, got crashed off the track in the tyre wear test by an overambitious Rosberg. Have to say, pretty realistic!

    I have to say, Forza Horizon 3 is damn good fun. A game well worth it's price tag, filled with content, and it features a Reliant. What more could you possibly want? This and the Bioshock Collection should keep me well-occupied over the next few weeks.

    All this major soft- and hardware releases and all I'm looking forward to is this: https://www.nintendo.com/nes-classic Still hoping the SNES gets a similar treatment. Though 30 games won't be enough in case of a SNES mini.

    And I don't exactly burrow though every single post here, so do excuse my ignorance. Nah, I'm pretty content with myself, my world view, and my way to approach products. My love life is terribly depressing though!

    And you are one of those people who can't accept any criticism towards their new favourite toy whatsoever. Instead of focusing on the issues, so the game can really shine, you seem to be content with a half-baked attempt as long as it is somewhat fun. Now that the generalisations are out of the way, I do enjoy the new Doom, Dark Souls 3, Darkest Dungeon, XCOM 2, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Salt and Sanctuary, Overwatch, and possibly some title I can't remember right now.  Oh, and Battlefield 1 is rubbish, too. Here's hoping you don't enjoy that one.

    Eh, I'm on the verge, and in reality, the playtime I had at my nephew would qualify for it, I guess. And why wouldn't I admit to it? Mate, I bought Daikatana. I pre-ordered it even. I have no shame. Did you buy 2015? 2016 is a very large amount better :p I've heard of Daikatana, but I actually have no idea  what it is lol. Yes. And I do regret it. I'm just getting the same feeling as with 2015. Patch -> more issues -> Patch -> more issues -> no more patch, 'cos new game needs to be build. I mean, they never fixed the graphic glitches in 2015 (Singapore, Canada) and lots of other issues, so I'm wary. As much as I have to admit that I adore the handling. A wonderfully overhyped piece of garbage. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hdxuRCMh0I

    Watched some more fresh gameplay, spotted 3 (new?) graphical glitches right off the bat. Codemasters annoys me even without purchasing the game...

    My point stands. development may cease for the remainder of the season, but not in the winter break. It makes no sense not to be able to apply upgrades to your car in between two seasons. I mean, what is the logic behind it? "Hey guys, we cease R&D to be able to put it all in the new car!" "Great! Can't wait for Australia!" "Yeeeah, about that..."

    You don't think it's weird to have a dog of a car at the first race, but a flipping Merc at the second? It looks like an oversight to me, but what the hell do I know?
