Well anyway I woke up angry about something unrelated and petty this morning followed by all afternoon being irritated about trying to get the real version of Disco Elysium to run.
Thank fucking Christ I'm such a habitual hoarder and data saverer, because resulting in me having close to the original release version of Disco Elysium from GOG has saved even more furious butthurt it's just that now I wasted all damn afternoon on it. It took so long just to finally get the slow ass data transfer to completion from an old drive, power going out, taking a shower and finding out copying stopped midpoint from some file directory problem and I FINALLY get my game downloaded.
I don't know whatever the problem is with new voice acting and don't care to find out, don't care how proud the devs are to spend so much time and money on full voice acting, and frankly found it infuriating even as far back as Mass Effect that lore encyclopedia was being read to me I had to turn audio off just to look at my ingame encyclopedia. I am absolutely dreading that DE is going to read non-dialogue to me, which seems to be one of the numerous problems of new version. Jesus Christ it's going to start getting dark out soon because it was stormy all day.
Oh well. At any rate I think it would be appropriate to burn Opium for this game. I now have a very specific Dragon's Blood tied to Prey, which was frankly an amazing game. Due to Mooncrash and certain IRL circumstances I feel my full game nostalgia was dampened but damn it was such a good game.
I think at this point that life is short and I should eat the good cake first because I may never get the chance to eat the better one later.
Besides, vidya is like reading a book. Or cinema. A trash romance novel isn't saving money on a lesser pasta: it's just wasting your time.
So I'm just not gonna even bother with a good number of my discount games for awhile and just focus on some truly great gaming for what precious limited resource my time now is all summer.
Still up I have on my list is Alien Isolation, Colony Ship, The Walking Dead by TellTale, Divinity Original Sin 2, and the rest of the Witcher series among many others. I just have to force myself through W2 which is console shit to get to Witcher 3. I do have plenty of good games and so far as I can tell Disco Elysium is going to be a truly good game all fulla feels.>>58196
Yeah I'll take a minute to post about that later. It was truly an awesomely amazing and epic game. The way it went was both what I figured was going on since 2/3 the way through the game only I couldn't quite figure out why, but damn by the time I finished that game it was at the same time so much different from everything I expected to find out.
Prey (2017) is truly one of the top 50 best games made of all time, and as I take time to digest it better is probably going to go on my personal top 25 alongside my classics like Planescape and Tides of Numenera and KOTOR 2 which are among my top 10 list. Yeah it's just that good.
Like I'm such an incredibly negative, cynical, picky individual who practically makes it a mission to find imperfections in things so as to push them along the path of their destiny towards perfectionidk why I think like this it's a finished game since years ago if it wasn't even why tf would anyone give a shit what some faggot gamer like me has to say about their game but oh well can't help reflexively seeing imperfections to make perfect
and even still there's basically not much I can say about improving the game. I suppose it could be a bit less, empty yet cluttered feeling midgame, maybe talk with NPCs, strive to create much deeper emotional impressions in the player about some things going on, but overall its only real problem was a few crash to desktops.
Prey 2017 I would strongly recommend. >>58207
Tried it, played it a little bit, didn't feel too strongly about it. It actually just felt like a very high quality $10 shovelware game to me, like a cheap hidden gem.
It's not that it's bad at all. It's pretty fun and a good strategy game. Maybe it's just not "big" enough a game, maybe I don't care too much about that particular moment in our historybesides tactical trolling
, maybe it needed more what I dunno.
I actually think that the full Ultimate Civil War is probably gonna be better. Gettysburg just felt too lackluster to me for how little it felt as one battle and not even giving the player lots of historical context for the combat mission you're overseeing.
Everything else you say seems spot on though. I'll probably try playing it to be a casual chillax tier game, along with heavier campaign gaming like mah beloved 4x games which I plan to get into like Endless Space 2 DLCs and Endless Legend and finish the Age of Wonders Planetfall campaign I started. Dunno yet.
I'm surrounded by games but often too ADHD retardchild behaving to really stick to a game immerse myself and finish it. There's a few that do that though, like Prey and probably The Walking Dead and Dishonored, which very easily hook you the moment you start unless you consciously are trying to do something else.
