My memory is fuzzy, but Perfect Dark had bots, while Goldeneye did not?

Perfect dark also had a greater number of modes/settings.

Ouch, smash a bottle of maple syrup over my head why don’t you.

What company previously owned Rock Paper Shotgun?

I was an on and off reader of theirs and really liked it in the beginning… but had the distinct impression they changed ownership a little while back when they added some pay walls and game guides.

Sheamus still requires that EA app. I was hoping to get around a launcher on this one for the Steam Deck.

I didn’t realize the remnants of Human Head were at a Bethesda subsidiary. Loved me some Rune.

Pretty sure it comes from credit rating systems.

Seeking: Kid-friendly Adventure/Exploration Games (PC)

My daughter (4) is very into exploring cities, homes and villages in Skyrim, feeding aliens in No Man’s Sky, and cleaning houses in House Flipper. She gets annoyed in games like House Flipper because she can’t leave the property to explore all of the visible houses on the block. I’d like to find other PC games that are...

There’s a few short indie adventure games that may fit the bill:

I haven’t played Stray, but it may be a good fit. I also haven’t played past the opening scene of Firewatch, but if your daughter can manage walking around Skyrim then I think it should be okay.

I searched for indie exploration games. City of Muse came up.

There’s a list of 3D exploration games on Itch.

When I saw your title, space combat games are immediately what came to mind.

I adored the space operas that were FreeSpace and FreeSpace 2 (VIP Volition). I would love for something along those lines. Add in a little bit more management, some rpg/progression elements, even pilot/FPS sections, and it’s dream game for me. It’s one of the reasons I was so excited (and let down by) Star Citizen.

Just purchased one a minute ago, albeit in Canada.

The female voice didn’t sound so bad next to the train wreck of the main announcer.

Steam deck user here. I’ve done with it what I couldn’t achieve with even the Steam controller: preference for trackpads + gyro for pretty much everything (FPS included) except for hotkey heavy action RPG’s (Dragon Age, Witcher 2, etc).

I don’t play RTS anymore. I had a falling out with them around Supreme Commander days.

I’m with you.

I haven’t played it but there is Beyond All Reason, which even riffs on Arm and Core.

uninvitedguest,
@uninvitedguest@lemmy.ca avatar

As do I. I’d chalk it up to the asymmetry of the Steam controller. Lack of a D-pad, lack of a right analogue stick. The Steam Deck back buttons are also far better, and 4 is twice as good as 2.

Been plugging away at Armored Core 6. I’m kind of over it. It’s been a fairly average experience and at this point I’d like to wrap up the story and move on to something with a little more meat.

Hugo’s House of Horrors.

The dog and the butler (chef?) terrified me.

uninvitedguest,
@uninvitedguest@lemmy.ca avatar

Yeah, if you walked in to the dining room the butler would cut your head off. If you walked out to the backyard the dog would tear you up.

Try using the IP address of the NordVPN SOCK5 server, instead of the domain.

I had issues with using the domain name provided by Privado, and found switching to the IP address resolved them.

Unfortunate. From here the best I can say is check the logs.

I’d be curious how this all shakes out when including different product lines. For example, Disney movies are merchandised to high heaven. How does the licensing revenue that Frozen picks up add to the pot compared to Overwatch.

Here’s the state of BioWare right here:

Can’t even read the blog post because it’s blocked by Connie preferences and then a dialogue for applying cookie preferences that takes minutes (?!) to run.

Thanks for the archive link.

I would always play AVP2 as an Alien. I loved the mobility of being able to traverse walls and the unique challenges/opportunities it presented. I played it a lot and got quite good at it (would easily be the top player in most games I played), but would more often focus on making use of those unique mechanics for novelty situations.

One map (the forge, or something similar) had high ceilings with ridges built in to it, perfect for hiding an Alien. Instead of running around the map tearing up victims and moving up the leaderboard, I would cling up on that ceiling and wait for an unsuspecting human to pass underneath. I would drop down like a spider, paralyze them with my tail, and immediately headbite them. The glee that I would get from perfectly executing that surpassed any MVP received from high scores. It was fun to just play an Alien like an Alien.

Steam for a few reasons:

  1. Ease of use with the Steam deck
  2. Prices are often cheaper, albeit often through sites like Fanatical/ Humble
  3. Synergizes with my only subscription, Humble Choice
  4. There is a lot of content missing from games on GOG compared to Steam. Most of it is trivial, but sometimes it is substantial. It has created a rhetoric about GOG customers being treated as second class citizens. Google Sheets

I used to try to buy my games at GOG where there wasn’t a significant financial difference. I liked what they were doing, especially with GOG Galaxy at the time. The pendulum swung back to Steam over time, and now I’m just not buying games any more.

Matter of opinion. I would rather have an empty feed than have to scroll past all the memes I have no interest in.

There’s no paradox. It says there is a risk, it is not substantial, and the benefits outweigh it.

Definitely. Their marketing speak may not have any holes in it but wouldn’t trust them as far as I could throw them.

Working parents, how do you find time to game?

I grew up an avid gamer. But now, among my 50-hour work week, helping my kids with their math homework, grocery shopping, and house chores, I’m no longer able to find enough free time to really dive into a game. I mostly play casual games that I can drop in and out of but forget about the 40hr+ games requiring commitment....

I picked up a Switch thinking it would always be attracted to my TV. Maybe it was for a bit, but when my child came along the only way I used it was handheld and for spurts at a time.

That’s how I knew the Steam Deck was an instant buy for me - the pause/resume is key.
