Played Skyrim last night for the first time in about 5 months. Got busy with other things and some other games and neglected it for a while.

I still haven't finished the main story. There's so much content in the game it's very easy to get distracted doing other stuff.

I was also stunned by Isolation. Absolutely beautiful game.
We get our DK2's tomorrow, so we're pretty excited to try it out with the new Rift.

So far I'm only about three hours in, and I'm having a hard time deciding what to play between Alien: Isolation and Shadow of Mordor.

And then 'The Evil Within' comes out next week...
Not. Enough. Free. Time.

Have young kids, then your machine is dominated with games like Minecraft, and you don't have a choice. :D

I'm currently playing Alien Isolation as well.
I'm playing it on the Oculus Rift DK2. Very interesting experience, and it works incredibly well. Being able to peak around corners, look under tables etc. is a great experience.

First level was easy, then the software glitches set in. Took me about 8 hours to finish it.

More Alien: Isolation

I thought I was doing really well. Had a couple close calls... but was able to get past the alien by staying just far enough off to the side it didn't find me.

But, seems I got a bit to sure of myself... bumped over a trashcan. And the damn alien came running. I was not only shocked because I died, but shocked because bumping over a trashcan gave me away.

They're there, but essentially useless, it would have been more useful to throw the revolver at whoever is in your way, well i haven't tried shooting any humans but i did shoot an android square between the eyes and nothing, the bloody thing backed me into a corner and killed me.

The game is more tense than scary, knowing that any second that you could be lunch for the alien. It looks like the devs got at least the most important rules of horror right, the less you see of something the more scary it becomes once you do encounter it.

Re: What was the last game you played: New Era
 
Humans will go down in a single head shot, around two body shoots to drop them.
The androids naturally take a lot of damage to drop, but the shotgun can make quick work of them.
The flamethrower kills humans instantly, but does almost nothing to the androids.

Personally, I'm glad weapons aren't so powerful you can just run around with them. If so, the game would be... a bit... meh.

Re: What was the last game you played: New Era
 
Some of you may recall in the old thread that I was playing through Rise of the Triad (2013).

Finished it last night. This game got old very quickly. It was a faithful throwback to the original, but the gameplay is certainly dated.

About halfway through I got bored and God-moded myself to the end just to finish it.

I feel that this game sorely pales in comparison to the new Shadow Warrior from last year. Shadow Warrior was faithful to the original, kept an old school feel to the gameplay while introducing modern gameplay elements, and had pretty good graphics IMO. I wish the new ROTT would have been more like this.

Now I'm off to finish up Skyrim and the 100cc class of Mario Kart 8 :D:D:D

It continues to get better and better. And harder.
I'm very happy, I find I'm dying way more in this then I have in any other recent release. There's actually challenge to this... and I love it.

Also the game just gets more and more twisted the further into it you get.

Re: What was the last game you played: New Era
 
Hadn't noticed before, guess he does a little bit of a Hopkins thing going on.

Yes Stevey, the game is wonderfully twisted. I'm having an absolute blast with it.
Currently on Chapter 13 out of 15. So, getting closer.

Favorite chapter so far? I'm assuming it has awesome pacing if Mikami's involved. Is the letterboxing fine? I assume most people either won't care or will stop noticing after an hour or so but it's I can read about the game online.

Last question, how would you say it compares to R.E. 4?

It's almost impossible to nail down a favorite chapter. The first one is a bit weak, but after that all just get better and better. I haven't played a level I haven't enjoyed.

Personally, the letterboxing doesn't bother me at all.
Hell, I played Condemned: Criminal Origins when it first came out on PC on a 5:3 monitor. Full on big black bars all over that mug.
But, personally, once you get into the game you don't notice. But, of course, tons of people won't shut up about it. There are a few fixes out there so...

And compared to Resident Evil 4? Well, it's got an upgrade system. Kind of like the weapon upgrades in RE4, but... simplified.
Also, you can upgrade your character's health, ammo capacity... stuff like that.
There are some similar enemies... like the chainsaw guy, and the basic zombie types. And, the same style of third person camera.

But after that, the similarities pretty much stop.
It's a much, MUCH slower game then RE4. And you are incredibly fragile and not as agile as Leon was.
This is a true survival horror game. I would classify RE4 much like I would Dead Space. Action survival horror. And I LOVE the Dead Space games and RE4.
But, The Evil Within is so damn great because of how challenging it is.

Re: What was the last game you played: New Era
 
Got past that part in under the iron cloud boss, following Stevey boy's advice.
Then wanted to go back and get all the secrets from the first level. Then wanted to continue with the latest level, Serious Sam 3 unearthing the sun.
Then I noticed that all my up to date saves had vanished.

But I still had the saves from under the iron cloud. So I got to play them again. Which is fine, I did not get that last secret in that cloud level.

But it's annoying, that I can't find my saves that I thought would be there, when I tried to return to the latest save. :p

This was tough to write out. :)

I have just finished Alien: Isolation. I liked it but does anyone else think the game becomes a little tedious towards the end? I think the game is a little too long for it's slow pacing.

I might try the Expendables expansion next.
