Assasins Creed Origins.
Good game, Asthonishing visuals, nice main story but boring side content, too many fetch qeust. Combat is nice but stalth is nerfed.

Not to mention, the level gating. Being literally unable to damage things in certain places if you're not a high enough level, that sort of thing. That is so unlike Assassin's Creed, and between that and the combat being more like Dark Souls/Bloodborne/Nioh...This game is barely an Assassin's Creed game. It looks fine, but...just has the wrong title.

Still Black Desert Online. So much Black Desert Online. I'd like to say it has become my new favorite MMO, but I haven't played enough of it, honestly.

For those of you who don't know what it is, it's like a cross between the combat of Vindictus, the open world RPG aspect of a typical MMO, and the Do whatever the [censored] you want sandbox experience of Runescape - including a very solid take on player housing, boats, etc.

I did not had problem with the gating as i did most side quest first. In any case i agree the game feels like a softer version of dark souls with a stealth mechanic tacked on top. Good but really not what i expected.

Yeah, the gating isn't a problem if you play it the way you're supposed to play an RPG. It just shouldn't be a thing in an Assassin's Creed game in the first place.

Is there a way to play a RPG right?
For the most part I like to do way I want at any given time.
To prohibit that makes it too linear for my taste.
Of course besides the story line.
But I prefer freedom of playstyle.
If I try to kill an opponent which I can't defeat then it should have to do with my skill level not with the total progress in the game.
And character skills should count less in this equation.
But should be an opportunity to progress if I can't succeed at a certain point in the game not as a scripted way

Made the mistake of getting back into Skyrim and getting completely absorbed by a new character. Twice.

First time is a High Elf mage who fled the Thalmor, focusing exclusively on magical combat. It was a bit mediocre at first with the way magic works in the vanilla work, but I loaded up the Better Magic mod to make it scale better and remain competitive later in the game. I used Hearthfire to build a wizard's lair (complete with greenhouse, library and storage room) deep in the swamps of Hjaalmarch. He married Brelyna from the College of Winterhold, going on to adopt Ram-Ku (an adoptable Argonian hatchling from a mod) and Ma'rakha (an adoptable Khajiit cub from another mod) since they're both minorities least likely to be adopted otherwise. He's become Archmage of the College of Winterhold, destroyed the Dark Brotherhood, helped the Empire win the civil war and had just joined the Dawnguard, before I was hit with the unbeatable urge to make a new character based on some builds I read up on.

The second character I made is an Imperial Vigilant of Stendarr / crusader / witchhunter / bard, using melee combat, archery and restoration magic in combat and using the Become a Bard mod to get money and free accommodation at inns. She's dressed as a Vigilant, with heavy armor boots / gauntlets and magic robes / hood, but I''ll switch to Dawnguard armor later. She's joined the Companions, but will likely refuse to become a high-ranking member due to the Circle's dark secret. Quests about the divines and daedra will be a priority, with the aim of aiding priests and counteracting daedric influence (or, at least, the influence of the 'evil' daedra). I plan on having her switch from Vigilant of Stendarr to the Dawnguard eventually, likely once she's finished the previously mentioned quests for the most part. I also intend to have her marry Moth gro-Bagol from Markath (since I find the idea of a righteous crusader falling for an orc quite interesting), and using Hearthfire to build a sanctum in Falkreath where they operate an impromptu orphanage housing four adopted children (using the multiple adoptions mod).

Love Skyrim. Some mods I'd definitely use if I were on current gen/PC. Like any good mod that adds an unarmed combat skill tree, since I always play a Khajiit. With such a skill tree, I'd be all OVER unarmed combat, basically a Khajiit atavist, using the natural damage bonus and the Fists of Steel perk to rip and tear my enemies. Naturally she'd join the Companions and become a werewolf, destroy those damn Silver Hand zealots...Imperials of course to crush the hypocritical racist goddamn [censored] from the Stormcloaks, though with a touch of sorrow at the knowledge that the Dominion are pretty much evil racists themselves. Most Imperials at least are okay, other than that captain at the start.

Yeah, I tend to play as minorities (be they man, mer or betmer), so the whole "Skyrim for the Nords" holds little appeal. That, and I believe it's only a matter of time before there's a second Great War, and a united Empire stands a better chance against them than Skyrim alone.

Quick update on the romance, too; I did Moth's personal quest, which required delivering him a daedra heart so he can cool the jarl's sword in its blood. A questionable action for my Vigilant of Stendarr character, but one she complied with since Moth is literally the first orc she's met in the game that hasn't attacked her (not even joking; all the others have been bandits or hostile hunters). In return, he gives her a piece of armor, and informs the orc strongholds around Skyrim that she's trustworthy enough to be named blood-kin. Considering how important the daedric prince Malacath is to the orcs, and how the Vigilant of Stendarr tend to adopt a hardline approach to stamping out daedra worship, it's legitimately touching how Moth's willing to give my character a chance. It's also timed well enough that she had just finished the matchmaking quest or the temple of Mara, so she has a newfound appreciation for love and compassion. Becoming blood-kin and subsequently marrying Moth makes for some great character development as she slowly adopts a more moderate approach to daedra worshipers, understanding the shades of grey behind some of the daedric princes.

Just found out about this game where you beat enemies with a hammer as a bunny girl - a lot of fun! Hey no, i am honest, look at the trailer - stop, i don't need a doctor...

Joke aside, i just wanted to see whats up with these high praises Rabi-Ribi gets. Never thought a game that combines the genres Bullet-Hell and Metroidvania, make that much fun. And yes at first glance it looks absolutely silly, but if you can look at it, you get a hard but great balanced game. Looking how it continues, have only played 7 hours until now.
Just an average internet user and :natani: & :raine: fan

My head is full of ideas, but i cant get them on paper - Please brain start thinking about important stuff.

Yeah, plus the whole "Skyrim should be independent from the Empire" thing is a little hypocritical, since Skyrim is where the first empire began, if I'm remembering the lore right.

Ahh.. Skyrim. Been meaning to play that game for years now. Yet that is the kind of game you need to take some vacations to really enjoy...

I've pretty much been engaging in Home Decorating in Black Desert Online lately. Got my house almost exactly how I want it (For now) in Heidel.

I tried to start back up into Pillars of Eternity. I don't know what it is. I see the potential for a fantastic game, but I just get bored playing it for some reason. It kind of sucks because I really want to like it, but it just might not be for me.

A friend of mine is thinking of making a Fallout-themed Tabletop system. He's narrowed it down to Seattle, Detroit, and Florida. All three locations could prove very interesting. It made me want to try to convert a game idea I've been sitting on and mowing over for well over a decade now into a Tabletop experience. We'll see if I can get that off the ground. It will definitely be a challenge, but I would really like to do something with my IP. This might be the perfect starting space for it. outside of trying to novelize some of the stories.

Games have kind of lost themselves to me lately. Nothing has really seemed fun to play. Black Desert is "Fun" to dick around in, but the game is shoddily made and has very little actual substance (So par for the course from a Korean-made Freemium MMO). Beyond it, I just haven't been in a gaming mood. I've played a little bit more World of Warships recently, and even helped Slaughter get into it with the help of another one of his friends, but trying to play it solo is a pain. Overwatch has just been a bad experience for me lately. I haven't been doing well comparative to how well I used to do with less experience in the game. I'm a Mei main and it feels like everything I do is just a little off the mark, and I'm not doing as well as I should be. Well, it could be IRL issues affecting me, but I'm not going to get into that here. Just hope I can move forward soon so I can actually enjoy gaming again.

Not playing because still don't have something I can play it on, but watching a competently done playthrough in progress of KINGDOM COME: DELIVERANCE! And it looks heckingn AMAZING! For those who don't know, it's a medieval non-fantasy historical RPG that's very historically and mechanically accurate. The combat is deep and WILL wreck you if you just jump into it without learning it, the lock picking is like Skyrim but infinitely better, the pick pocketing is great, the armor system is great, you have to eat and sleep, and the game is GORGEOUS for a game made for only about five million dollars. Basically, this game is better than SKYRIM AND I WANT IT.
