@nessisonett You know that's actually not a bad idea! I'll have to see how my mood is over the coming weeks since I've been getting tired of not only FF but also JRPGs in general. Might either play the Midgar section of the original FFVIII just to see how it was back then or just skip the game entirely depending on how I feel.

@KratosMD I do think it’s easy to burn out on turn based RPGs. Maybe play something lighter like an indie game on your backlog or get stuck into Sleeping Dogs or Bioshock that you’ve just got? It’s only going to get crazier once all the major releases start piling in 😂

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

@Thrillho @Octane Yep audio logs are my gaming pet peeves too. The BioShock games are some of the worst. Especially when they activate when a load of action is happening, and you end up missing half of what was said.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

What I don't like about audio logs is that they often need to found with effort. If they have genuine importance to the story, make them obvious.

While I'm enjoying The Outer Worlds, it does have one mechanic I hate..

Weapon and armour degradation

I mean, I get the idea but when does this actually add anything to the game? It's just one of those things that sounds like a neat addition but is ultimately just a pain, particularly in a game like this where I have so much money and weapon/armour parts to make the repairs that there's never any jeopardy of it actually causing me a problem. Even more so when I don't even have to find a dedicated place/person to do it but can make the repairs straight from my menu screen.

Having something so it only has so many used before it breaks could work (like the alien blaster in one of the Fallout games that only had so much unique ammo) but that will probably only result in me keeping it in my inventory "just in case" and never actually using it..

@Thrillho Yep I'm not a fan of it either. I think in Far Cry 2 I found it the worst. Another one like it is being over encumbered, especially in game when you hard expected to gather resources for crafting and such not.

@JohnnyShoulder Was FC2 the one where guns would randomly jam on you too?

The overcumbered mechanic bothers me less as it’s one way of stopping me from hoarding the entire galaxy’s worth of clothing and food. I am bad for carrying around weapons I will never use and causing myself problems though (e.g. the grenade launcher in Outer Worlds).

@Thrillho me too, if i was playing a ultra realistic game then having a limit is fine for example a shooter where you can only carry 2 or 3 guns but if i'm playing something like a RPG/JRPG why do i need a storage limit, it's a game after all, let me carry 200 swords, 100 wands and a bucket load of armour if i want too

@Thrillho Yeah and with Malaria which you had to keep in check. Damn, that game had a lot in it which annoyed the hell out of me.

@FullbringIchigo In most games you are already able to carry more than should be possible, so doesn't make much sense to have a limit.

@FullbringIchigo Although Resident Evil’s inventory management being like some twisted version of Tetris to fit as much into that grid as possible has to be the worst of all time.

@Thrillho at least in that game it makes sense though, you're trying to survive with limited resources but most of the time it makes no sense at all

@Thrillho Oh no, I love Resi’s inventory Tetris. It’s way more fun trying to fit things together than an arbitrary ‘you can hold 10 items despite how large or small they are’.

@Jaz007 Is that good or bad? I have not and have no intention of playing it.

@JohnnyShoulder It depends on the game. It works very well within the context of Death Stranding. Basically, you actually have to carry everything and there is no magic pocket. There's a physical spot for it (even if packages are above your head or in a vehicle), or you're not taking it with you. Granted, they have pouches that optimize storage, but to summarize, it it's realistic and bit more hardcore and doesn't make you feel like you need to be able to take the kitchen sink with you (even if it would be nice), it's good. If not, it could be bad.

@Jaz007 Oh ok, yeah seen that. Like you said that works for D'S but would be a nightmare fore something like Skyrim and all those Dragon skulls picked up.
