Bioshock 1 and then Infinite. Definitely one and then the other.

I would say #1 if you HAD to choose right now because it is for sure worth playing (and would be cheaper).

Bioshock is the superior game, but if you enjoy it then Infinite is a must-play.

Hey, Nvidia, you should be ashamed for partnering with those cunts. The Uplay store is as bad as Origin. Oh yes, I went that far.

I've used Origin

Never tried playing a game without the client running but the GUI was awful and I had lots of connection errors

I like their refund policy though

also there are plenty of Steam games which you can just play directly from the executable without the steam client running

Thank you for these 17 years. There is no one else in the world that could translate these visions and ideas into reality as well as you guys did.
Though I won't be there, I wish you the best of luck with your future projects.

Games that you think are overhyped or overrated? Just curious to see what people think.

No hate in this thread; I am pretty sure that somepony might say something about your favorite game that you don't like.

For myself, I feel that Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2 are overrated. Although they may have been great back when they first came out, I feel that they are outdated and buggy. I had some fun with Sonic and Shadow, and some of Knuckles's and Rouge's stages were also okay. I found them fun at their best but annoying and bothersome at their worst. There are some stages that I barely liked at all; Amy, Big, and those shooting stages from both games.
Compared to other games in the Sonic series, I didn't get a lot out of the adventure titles.

It's all a matter of opinion of course. I played all three in order and Oblivion was my favorite by a small margin, but you sort of have to play them in order so you can enjoy them all. You can't play Oblivion and then Morrowind, or Skyrim and then Oblivion, it would most likely just be unplayable to you because you're so used to all the things the most recent game added to the formula.
>> No. 130737
I think you got those backwards there, bro, you generally start these kinds of analogies with what you had rather than what you traded it for.

I'm just annoyed at how much Morrowind fans shit on Skyrim while praising their own game, and I didn't get to feel all the amazingness of it. I feel cheated, I feel lied to.

And my biggest problem with Oblivion aside from the leveling system is that it takes fucking eons to kill anything.
>> No. 130741

My biggest problem with Oblivion was the drab, dull, generic fantasy setting. The main thing that drew me into Morrowind, and by extension the Elder Scrolls series, was the setting. It was a game that was primarily about lore and exploration, and an Elder Scrolls game with a boring setting is like a Mario game with boring platforming. If you take that away, then even if you "improve" the core game mechanics, you're still left with a bland fantasy RPG that isn't good enough at any particular thing to stand out.

I mostly agree with this Youtube guy here.

I purchased Adventure Time: Card Wars today and I am very displeased by the inclusion of an energy meter that can lock me out of playing a game I paid $4 for.

I am currently locked out of said game and have decided that each time I get locked out of it that I will make a post on the facebook and twitter pages of its developer Kung Fu Factory, D3 Publisher, and Cartoon Network.

In an attempt to bring attention to this bullshit being put into a paid for game, as in I paid money up front and it is not free-to-play, I will also make a post here, or bump the existing thread, each time as well.

This may seem like a small thing not worth getting in an uproar over, but we as consumers should not let this stand. This kind of pure exploitative greed will only spread if we do not cause each level of game creation, the developer, the publisher, and in this case the company that commissioned it, know that we will not tolerate the products we pay for being ransomed by micro-transactions like some throw away free-to-play game.

Please let all three of these companies know on their twitter, and facebook pages that this type of business practice is unacceptable.

For twitter please use either #LockedOutofCardWars or #CardWars to unify things.

Sadly this is what the mobile gaming market has come to. Developers want to milk every single drop of money out of their customers without consideration that they already payed for the product out front.

Sadly, I'm pretty sure that your campaign will fall on deaf ears, what you're asking is that the developers made the game less profitable and that's a sin for them.

You think that's bad?
EA's release of DK2 required the player to wait for up to a day for certain actions (such as digging out single squares, something you'd likely do a few hundred times in the first hour or two) if they didn't pay real money.

Also aspects necessary to progress (building traps, increasing work rate, any automation, having more than two imps), all cost $1-$10 per action.

The game is one of the highest rated games in the app store. Mostly because it didn't actually let players rate it less than 5.

The score on metacritic? 0.3

The video games market is only so big; the fact that EA's tactics allow it to compete with legitimate developers without producing anything of value is disturbing.

You should all buy it even just for the soundtrack alone.

From Overseer Sterling Vision: Well, Server finally did it...

He blew up the whole goddamn world; him along with it.

I knew eventually he would, but I was still suprised when it happened. I think he got fed with, and i quote "Those stupid inferior humans" and just snapped.

So here is a new world that is not blown up but is rather empty. *sniff*

Make sure you say hello to New Server!!

(On a serious note: everypony will have to re-ask for build rights since everything was lost)

With the new update out, more reason to play.

But I feel like like should go all Pokemon snap on this, and make a catalog of the weirdest and awesome monster we have seen in game.

This by far is my favorite one I have seen. He would walk around, stop, and then make this face
