I'm about 12 hours into Death Stranding. I really like it.

I was a bit worried I would hate the game because I HATED the SKULLS in MGSV. But this game is pretty cool.

The game says I've played about 8 or 9 hours (though a few hours were spent on the main menu with the game on pause in the background, I don't know if the game also counts that). Anyway, I'm getting familiar with the gameplay loop and I'm quite enjoying it. I like seeing the paths appear where you walk a lot, makes it easier to find your way to certain places as well.

Meh, I'll play it when it's a free + giveaway....

@Octane I think it has something to do with how Konami scrubbed any mention of his existence from MGSV. His devout followers were gutted, he was frustrated, and technically it was a low move by Konami. But mostly I think it's just about rubbing it in Konami's face, plus a bit of tongue in cheek humor to the fans that remember what happend with V.

@Galenmereth LOL....best description I've heard yet.

@NEStalgia Is that a reply to my last comment? If so, I don't understand what you're replying to lol.

@Octane About Kojima shoving his name into the game as often as possible

@NEStalgia I see. Well, it hasn't happened again since the prologue. So it's not as bad as I first thought. But I specifically remember seeing his name a bunch of times during MGSV: Ground Zeroes.

I agree with pretty much all of that! We obviously have similar preferences.

The only things I'd add is that DS3 probably had the best bosses in terms of variety and gameplay, but DS1 bosses were better in terms of design and lore. If you take something like the Gaping Dragon, for example, it's a really cool design with an interesting setting and interesting backstory, yet it's a really boring fight.

I think Bloodborne only had the best music if you include the DLC though, because the best 2 tracks were attached to the best 2 bosses: Ludwig and Lady Maria. Otherwise it would've been DS3 that had the best.

And yes, Senpou Temple was my favourite area too. Really well designed environment. I didn't actually like Fountainhead Palace though. This was definitely one of the biggest issues with Sekiro for me. Just not enough really memorable environments. Whereas in something like DS1, pretty much every single area in the first half of the game was memorable.

Honestly, a good deal of Sekiro's locations blur together for me. The battles were the memorable parts for me, like the Knight on the bridge

@PikPi

Yeah that was a great fight. The other ones I especially enjoyed were Gyobou Oniwa (the guy on the horse) and Genichiro (the one mid-game at the top of the castle).

I'm pretty addicted to Death Stranding now. Started building roads and tearing it up. Took me awhile to discover you can click the stick to make the bike go fast. Really good game. Few dumb political things in some of the texts you get to read but otherwise solid for now.

13th Sentinel: Aegis Rim just received a near-perfect score of 38/40 from Famitsu.

Well, that score just put the game into my list for most anticipated 2020 games.

Even though I'm a fan of Vanillaware, the absence of their games on Switch is super-annoying.

Started up the Last Labyrinth on my VR today.

It's an escape room game where you're strapped to a wheelchair and must solve puzzles by guiding a girl around the room with a lazer pointer on your head so she can interact with the various elements in the room.

It has a dark grungy look, but the graphics themselves are quite nice, and if you fail a puzzle both you (and more disturbingly) the girl are subjected to an elaborate Saw style death. There's no visible gore, but it's been very creepy more than once.

After about an hour of play I triggered the credits, but there's still more content after the fact it seems, so I'll still get more out of it (the current puzzle is a Simon style memorization challenge, and I suck at those, lol).

Finally, I beat Nioh, took me a while, but I finished it. Truth be told at some point, I was about to throw my controller at the screen when I fought those last two tedious bosses. But all in all the game was solid, it has some extreme balancing issues, enemies hit like a bloody tank and the fast ones that attack multiple times are merely terrifying! I was more terrified of them than some of the bosses! One last thing I want to touch upon is that the story is a mess, and William( the protagonist) has no character whatsoever! He's just an avatar that says a couple of lines, and that's it. Piss shoddy work if you ask me. Still, I'm legitimately excited for the sequel that's coming out next year.

These publishers made a solid case to never buying a game day one.

Pretty sure these very heavy sales over the past however many years it has been is a response to Steam sales. Sure it's Black Friday sales but look at Nintendo, their sales are very tame in comparison and that's in part to the mindset of not competing with anyone.

I don't think so Steam and their sales have always been a second thought to these publishers. Hell PC gaming as a whole is a second thought to them. I think the only few reasons these publishers make their games on sale cause they want to make their money back, they want to make a quick buck if the game was successful or retailers have too many copies in stock. Like that Gamestop $5 Anthem deal, it screams of desperation to get rid of all those unbought copies

@MsJubilee For games like God of War, or Spider-Man, I don't think it's a ''desperate attempt'' when they already sold something like 10 million copies. They're just lowering the price to keep the sales up. If everyone who's willing to buy it at €60 has bought it, there's no reason to keep the price that high. Don't forget, these games already have made their money back, they are already profitable. And it just makes more sense to sell a ton more copies at a lower price, than keep the price artificially high with fewer copies sold.
