Thread: Video Games...Discuss Them

    Finished the main portion of RDR2 earlier today. I cried. Not just once but multiple times. Admittedly I never finished RDR1 and I don't play many games on the whole, let alone ones with a real storyline, let alone finish those ones with a storyline (the last one may have been a Arkham City). But I didn't quite expect that deep of an emotional impact. I really came to love Arthur. And my horse, which I refused to switch and when the game forced me to use a temporary horse I would always audible an apology or gentle reassurance once reunited with my real companion.

    I had dinked around for the first few chapters; dropped the game for months. Can't say why I decided to get back into it, and I still wasn't hooked. I like the nature of this game, but I don't love it. And I can't spent hours upon hours trying to gather pelts to make a new saddle that I don't even really want to use. But after Arthur [
    ] I was riveted. Still made time to enjoy the world (love you, Rolling Block Rifle), but the story is where it was at for me. I felt the ending coming and kept telling myself I should stop and go finish finding rock carvings or dinosaur bones before it's too late, but I couldn't help it.

    I wish I'd known what more I could have done with my money. Bit of a disconnect with Dutch constantly harping about needing more money and I'd want to be like "buddy I can fund us all to gtfo here".

    Also wish I could've fucking found Gavin.

    Sort of my trajectory and feelings with the game. In the end, it's great storytelling first and foremost, but not something which really, truly riveted me gameplay-wise.

    Yeh but in Epic's defense, it's still growing. Remember when steam had absolutely nothing but a painful way to launch games? It took them years to be loved and Epic already have cloud save support for some of their games. So they are adding features.

    This is a very aggressive roadmap. (I'm still not getting BL3 at launch)

    Yeah, I've heard that excuse before and I think it's a lame one. This is 2019 and we're talking about an established, billion dollar business. (And as noted in that thread, Steam had pre-loads when Half Life 2 was released in 2005.)

    Epic has improved, but somehow they still don't have a shopping cart and the ability to take certain foreign currencies. This literally costs them business. They took pre-orders on BL3 and now they announce they can't pre-load it. I dunno how that's even possible from either a business or technical standpoint.

    In the grand scheme, who cares, but jfc oth it's almost like they're trying to alienate their own customers.

    Meanwhile, has anyone played this?

    Because it looks like it's deeply fucked up yet somehow hilarious if played co-op.

    It was a free game of the month, and I gave it a shot. The concept is there, but there's so many bugs and control issues that it's not worth my time.

    I invested a couple hours in it, and then came to the same conclusion. Glad I didn’t pay for it.

    However, Sniper Elite 4 is a free game this month!

    ???

    Cloud saves are nice but they don't bring in new customers and they don't incentivize anyone to spend money.

    Any of you guys use an airport express wifi router with your PS4? I updated the firmware on the airport last week, and my PS4 hasn't been able to connect to it since (can't find the SSID).

    I'm on the verge of getting a new router, but it's odd - the PS4 is the only device in the house that has trouble connecting to the wifi.

    EDIT: Mystery solved - I had switched my router to 5Ghz to help with throughput, but I guess the PS4 I have only supports 2.4GHz (lame).
