don't see a vidya thread on the front page, so I'm making one

I just read this article about the game Prey:


it sounds pretty awesome, I think it's definitely worth a read

also this:


and this:


...I thought were interesting. I like this Gamesradar site a lot, it's not very clickbait-y, there's no bullshit like auto-playing videos or ads that scroll down the page with you like every other news/gaming site now, they get straight to the point, and they seem a little shill-ish sometimes but not that bad.

also what is you guy's favorite video game of 2016?

for me it's definitely Gears Of War 4. perfect example of a developer actually LISTENING to the longtime core fanbase of a series and correcting the mistakes of the last game and just delivering a great experience that is more or less exactly what everyone wanted.

and then there's Ghost Recon: Wildlands, but that kinda seems like an MGSV clone.

not really a big deal since I already have them on Xbone, it would just be cool to have them on my PS4

A big dissapointing mess of missing features on release we all know, we know the story.

But it seems they are starting to redeem themselves little by little, the next patch releases tommorow or in a few days and they have shown off a bunch of the new features. Including customizable land buggys and tanks, you can build your own racetracks, tons more base building options , what looks like some multiplayer trading and a bunch more.

Of course this doesnt make the game in any way what was promised, but they are adding what was promised bit by bit, and its dirt cheap to buy now too... Another patch or 2 along and it may actually be worth getting (I allready platinumed it a while back anyway but they are adding new trophies and modes to this patch too, and im a trophy whore lol)

Hunter 41790308

I'm hoping they add more planetary enemies like pirates and random bases/dungeons to raid. They should also improve the Bounty Hunting at some point!

!PipesTtB.A 41790330

Apparently there is an alien race that is purely antagonistic being added (wether this patch or not) that was datamined. Ie : They will be there purely to try to kill you on some planets.

They also added Permadeath mode this patch too with a trophy for it, which will be fun because at the start of the game, you get raped by space pirates even on easy lol.

Should be some vids on youtube of the new patch showing off the ground vechiles and the new base bits.

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41790395

Until they add actual multiplayer and I can have someone tell me what I look like, that nigga Sean Murray better watch his back.

So i been playing Horizon. Not very far into it but its great so far. I wish Alooy would STFU up tho when wandering about. She's fine during cutscenes and stuff, but i dont need her to tell me out loud theres a blade of grass or a speck of dust every 5 seconds ._.

!PipesTtB.A 41791858

I.. i think i like this game more than Dragons Dogma..


Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41793939

what the shit, Bloodborne is only 20 bucks??? I might actually buy it now. for some reason I just assumed it was a full-priced game

also you can get Dark Cloud for 15 bucks...how did I not remember that? me and my brother fucking love that game. they have the sequel too.

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41794073

>I might actually buy it now. for some reason I just assumed it was a full-priced game
Full priced games usually eventually go down in price.

It's also not worth it to buy a "PS2 on PS4" game at full price as they do 50% off sales like once a month.

pips 41795367

Horizon Dawn isnt as great as i thought it was now im further in. The cracks are showing, today ti went all Darksouls arrows hitbox on me when i went to fire and it hit midair walls that werent there.

Then theres the entire stealth tree, which clearly doesnt work half the time. And the fact you cant upgrade your fucking spear past the first sidequest in the tutorial land, up until near the end of the game, rendering most melee attacks totally useless on anything big as they dont tickle them and they have 300% Dark Souls 2 posie so just hit your thru your animation rreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

It is beautiful to look at though.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41795392


after approx. 15 hours of HZD, I haven't really been interested in returning to it.

I bought Bloodborne and it only took like an hour before I got stuck in that and temporarily gave up after dying like ten times in a row. I know that's supposed to happen with the game, but I was just really frustrated because I attempted to do the same area differently each time, and still ended up getting wrekt. it's only the area past the first lamp too lol

I'm gonna have my brother help me, he beat Dark Souls on his own a while ago.

pips 41795411

Oh im still enjoying it, dont get me wrong. Its just frustrating at times when things dont work how they should. For the most part they do, and all open world big ass games like this are going to have the odd blip (At least Bethesda didnt make this game) , its just ... annoying.

I managed to blazing sun 3 hunting grounds so far pretty easily, but theyre a bit... random lol. That fucking tie down Glinthawks and crit them one was ridiculous cos of all the Tramplers xD

I hope I'm not the only one who remembers the golden age before "all licenced games/movie games suck!"

I was disappointed Ducktales Remastered didn't include the unaltered original as an unlockable or something and that they never did Ducktales 2 Remastered, so this is pretty cool. Though everyone who cares probably emulated them years ago.

also, I've been playing Bloodborne and I'm pretty surprised at myself but I really like it. at first I could barely get past the first lamp, but after watching some tip videos/reading some tricks online, I was able to get pretty far. and every time I play, I get a little farther.

I figured out the best way to use molotovs, I learned to conserve bullets, I learned that I should never fight more than two enemies at a time, I learned how to run past a lot of enemies so I can get to certain areas quicker, I found the hidden ledge that lets you jump into the sewers...

and then the first time I went in the sewers, I got gang-raped by like five giant rats, but instead of just giving up I went all the way back, and I just ran past them until they stopped chasing me. the only reason I died again was because I took on a tough enemy after running from another tough enemy and I didn't realize that the first one was still chasing me. and once you've got an enemy in front of you and behind you at the same time, you're pretty much done (at least in my case where I don't even have any armor or good weapons yet)

maybe this game is just easier than Dark Souls, but I feel like I'm having a ton of fun and I am actually getting better. even though I technically still haven't progressed past the first lamp, it's so exciting and thrilling to keep getting farther and farther.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 41797732


just played some more with my brother and got all of the armor I can currently buy. it's only a little bit of a boost to health but it helps.

we had a good laugh when we realized that enemies can follow you up ladders, and he decided to fall off and bring the enemy with him, but then the enemy killed him before he could get up because he was weak from the fall damage.

he says he thinks the game is too "slow-paced" for him though. we stopped after dying to the sewer rats again for now.

I have the EAA membership so I played it. The animations of my God. I had one story character stand in frag doll mode while talking to me, the most bizarre shit I've seen in a FINISHED AAA million dollar budget game.
The actual gameplay is kind of fun.

!PipesTtB.A 41799242

The gameplay didnt look anything special to me really, i used to play ME3 multiplayer quite obsessivly with my mate. I saw a new vid of the multi in Andromeda with a biotic slut flying about and clipping walls badly , and floating against stuff and it looked atrocious. A lot of reviewrs are pointin out bad stuff (Aside from the ones EA payed off and are fanbois gushing). I was really looking forward to it too :c

oh, I should probably mention: it costs 2,000 in-game credits for one Locust pack, OR $4.99 per pack. and the BEST part is, you might not actually get any Locust from them!! yay RNG!!!

I was super lucky and got Locust Grenadier with my first pack, which is the one I wanted (you can get Genadier or Drone) but I have seen people on reddit saying they have opened 10+ packs and not gotten any locust :/

Fausty the sassy bird!cpbuwI00Vo 41799816

Well I wasn't trying to say it was super amazing or anything. It's slightly more polished then some of the stuff that pops up on Steam Early Access.
I guess that's probably still too much of a compliment.

I finished maxing out all my Horde ranks so getting credits is going to be hard now. I've only been saving though since they've been doing all these event packs, was able to buy two. No locust. I did however get a free eSports 3 pack from watching the Fight Night stream on Wednesday and get my Phantom skins from playing the PC version.
Oh and matchmaking sucks dick in this game. Takes like half an hour to get a match on some playlists using the US East server.

>got put on COG team four matches in a row after getting my Locust Grenadier


I just want to wrek some n00bs as a Locust for the first time in this game


>Takes like half an hour to get a match on some playlists using the US East server.

are you talking about PC or Xbone? I play on Xbone and always find a match in less than 5 minutes.

I played it. Cool floating castles. I got to about level... 30, 40? Then quit. Not because of the gameplay, mind you, I thought it was quite nice. It's just that those lolitas in the cities started getting on my nerves, and then when I started reading about balance and what's good and what's not, apparently PvP wise the game is terrible unbalanced, plus the class I was playing (what was it... Saber, something like that?) was terribly underpowered.

I like that one comment the guy posted.
>While Ralph might not know the in's and out's of game design hierarchy, you're willfully missing the point here. She was in no way qualified for the position she held. This speaks volumes about the culture in place.

>She either got the position because of someone she knew (think the Mighty No. 9 fiasco) or because... she had a vagina and "we need to hire more vaginas because the game journo's said so, regardless of talent, experience or adequate education". Hence the allusion to GamerGate.

>When any industry puts non-meritous criteria in their hiring practice above, well, merit, it results in an inferior product and pissed off consumers. It's just the media is so good at redirecting outrage into channels that aren't helpful, usually by DARVOing.

>She is a cosplayer and a "geek girl" with a ridiculous resume (if that was a resume, frankly it was so childish I don't know what to think).

>If they're filing their ranks with people like her, then we have to look at WHY they're doing that and address the problem, because hiring underqualified/unqualified people for MAJOR projects, probably because of ideology, is a SERIOUS issue that impacts not only the hobby, but the culture of the company that produced the game.

>It was made very abundantly clear during GamerGate that the goal of the SJWs, feminists and corrupt journos is to destroy gaming as we know it - which would just simply destroy gaming because their inability to create (or consume for that matter) would lead to a collapse of consumer interest.

>TL;DR - this girl might not be the source of the cancer, but she is absolutley a symptom.
