Uncharted 4 next in the playthrough after going through the remaster collection and Golden Abyss.

I'm itching to get back in to Elite: Dangerous though. Trying to play both isn't really going to work for me, and I really do need to acquire another Thrustmaster HOTAS 4 - which is going to be a couple of weeks away. So I have a plan!

I have a bit of busy work to do in Elite (basically get to a specific system, buy a new ship, use it to ferry people about for ridiculous amounts of cash) before I continue my ranking up. Having just finished the book series I've been reading on my lunch break, I'm going to spend that time remote playing Elite!

Well I played about an hour and a half of NieR Automata yesterday @JohnnyShoulder and past the 30-45min opening (which is the demo we played) the gameplay is more... typical? I guess is the best word now it's past that part with the constant switching of camera angles and styles? (Though I actually quite enjoyed that despite me being rather rusty at it thanks to 2 months of playing the slower and strategic Divinity 😂)

That might flare up again as you progress but at the moment I just spent my time wandering round the deserted city that nature has overtaken with some robots around to smack the crap out of.

The combat doesn't grade you at all as far as I'm aware? Though I'm sure @Ralizah or @th3solution could tell you more about that seeing as they've actually played through it.

Loving the soundtrack so far! That first boss theme Bipolar Nightmare is soooooo goood 😊

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Yep, you’ll get into the shifting gameplay styles usually in the bigger set pieces. Normal combat in the open areas is pretty much just the spectacle fighting Platinum are known for.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

JohnnyShoulder

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Thanks for the tag! I look forward to your further comments on the game with great interest!

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Yeah, honestly I don’t remember the grading / scoring being present, per se. I think maybe experience is linked to combat performance, but I can’t even remember that. Overall, I’m fairly certain you don’t have to worry about generating style points, just slay the enemies and you’ll be fine 😅. But it is a lot more fun to try out new moves, new weapons, new bot abilities, new chips, etc, just for the fun of it.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

Ralizah

@JohnnyShoulder Yeah, there's no formal system of combat scoring here, and they don't plaster anything over the screen. There's no real downside to playing in as basic a manner as one likes. The combat is intuitive and fun, though, so you'll want to try new stuff on occasion.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only person who hates being scored after combat encounters with a freaking passion. I just want to play the game, not be judged according to some arbitrary standards set by the developer.

Some people complain about the combat here, but I think those are character action game fans. NieR: Automata is a character-action RPG for people like me who hate character action games like Bayonetta and DMC.

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Oh my god, you have no idea when it comes to the soundtrack. Definitely the best one of 2017, and that's even considering Persona 5 came out the same year.

I figured as much @nessisonett and sounds good to me! This is my first official Platinum game unless you count DMC 1 on a technicality seeing as it was directed by... Ummm... that especially grumpy japanese guy who's name I forgot who heads platinum 😅

Of course I have played DMC 1-4 so I'm familar enough with the style anyway


You're very welcome @JohnnyShoulder! I was surprised to find that you can partake in a (very simple) fishing minigame of all things as I was wandering about so I'm very curious to see what else it has in store...


I didn't really dive that much into the mechanics of things yet @th3solution so I'm not 100% sure on any of the systems like the chips just yet (I'll find out myself soon enough though!)

I took 2b's weapon off in fact and just had her bare knuckle fighting everything as it seemed to suit her stotic personality

Beat that huge lvl 20 something enemy over the bridge to get to the next main objective in the desert... Might have to do some other quests first to lvl up some more though as it took a good five minutes or so 😂


Well you know I was a bit cold on the persona 5 soundtrack @Ralizah. In fact I don't even remember how the end credit song goes which is quite damning to me as the previous two are so darn memorable!

For NieR Automata though... I was humming that boss battle theme all the way through lunch... So things are looking good so far

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy One bit of advice for the early game, try and plod on with the main story to unlock fast travel; I spent a ridiculous amount of time back and forwards between areas when I didn't really need to.

@Ralizah It definitely sounds like it could be more my thang by how you and others have described it.

Playing Frostpunk. My first try ended in me being thrown out of the city I was ruling lol. My current play through is going much better as I have a better understanding of the game. Watching a couple of gameplay tips videos certainly helped too.

I’m well into Kentucky Route Zero at the moment (finished Act 3/5 earlier today) but it’s a shame that the trophies are utterly borked. It seems to be a well known problem that hasn’t been patched yet and it seems utterly random as to which trophies people aren’t getting.

I put a good few hours into both Metro Exodus and Hollow Knight this week, both very good so far.

@LieutenantFatman Did you run into any bugs or other technical issues with Metro? I got it on release and man, it was a mess. So much so I abandoned it. Obviously with a view to returning but as a more wholesome experience.

Arugula

LieutenantFatman

@Arugula
I'm a fair few hours in and so far, I've not had any issues. Load times could be better, and it can be hard to see in dark buildings, but those are my only gripes.
I try not to kill humans, mostly go for stealth take downs where possible, really cool when a group surrenders and puts down their weapons, nice detail.

@LieutenantFatman Hollow Knight is one of my favourite games I played last year. I thought the platforming, exploration, and combat were all excellent. Such a beautiful world too. I hope you enjoy it as much!

Thrillho

LieutenantFatman

@Thrillho
It is very good, it has a strong and unique personality. That first boss fight was beautiful, very entertaining.

LieutenantFatman

Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy

Oooh where are you in Hollow Knight @LieutenantFatman?

Absolutely loved it when I played it over last christmas. Might have to go back and play that sometime soon (and actually beat the additional content this time around 😅)

-EDIT- I loved reading your run through of it @Thrillho... I still can't believe you got through the path of pain you utter madman lol!

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy
The mantis area, just got the new ability from there and I believe I'm just about to encounter a boss fight. Must admit I'm feeling some small amount of trepidation due to the risk of losing the currency I'm carrying! That's the Dark Souls formula for you, haha.

LieutenantFatman

Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy

Geo (The currency) isn't actually too bad or as precious In Hollow Knight @LieutenantFatman compared to Dark Souls & well... Souls.

Best of luck and I look forward to seeing your progress!
