That just seems like really poor design, especially since healing is such a thankless job in competitive games like TF2 or OW.Also, healers get much less, making it impossible to climb with them. So a big problem is if a team has a dedicated healer and will slowly inch out of the allowed 1000 SR difference
Hoo boy, that game is HARD. I haven't managed the 2nd shortcut yet. Only played as the Marine. Still have a lot to unlock.After A slow burn through DS3 and the Final DLC I have been going strong on Enter The Gungeon. I have 2/4 shortcuts unlocked and a bunch of the guns but it's not easy to say the least. I'm hoping I can beat the fifth floor at least once some day so I can unlock the bullet character. Apparently that one's starting equipment is really good. Beyond that I've played through Furi on easy mode. I only made it to the third guy on normal.
Might have to wrap it in spoilers, but how did you feel about the end? It basically sucked my desire to keep playing for some reason.I finished the story of Mad Max. I might play it a bit more, to unlock the final V8 Engine upgrade, but I'll probably move on to Bayonetta next.
I feel your pain, bud.I like to 100% my games so I'm working on a few things there (slowly):
NieR:Automata, Nioh, Gravity Rush 2, Wario Land 1, Donkey Kong Land 1, Bomberman Heroes, Snake Pass, LoZ: OoA/S. Probably a few things I'm forgetting about.
But as far as just straight up playing:
Puzzles & Dragons Z, Pokemon Moon, Yooka-Laylee, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Megaman Battle Network 5 DS, Sonic 1 (Master System)
And this doesn't take into account my backlog of stuff I have that I haven't touched yet:
Kirby Planet Robobot, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Metroid Prime Federation Force, Okami, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Trauma Center: New Blood, The Talos Principle, The entire Legacy of Kain Series...
I have too many games @_@
Oh really? I have a friend who loved that game and I was thinking of trying it myself since the fame thing looked interesting and unique. And I for some reason decided to forgo my backlog and went with Talos Principle. BOY am I glad I did. Its kind of nice and refreshing. Also I'm a sucker for pseudo-philosophy nonsense.I feel your pain, bud.
I just recently finished Shadow of Mordor. It was pretty good, but it be lying if I didn't say I was starting to get kinda bored with the fame after a while. Began to get really repetitive and the extra missions from the GOTY edition didn't help. Right now, I've been playing Watch Dogs 2. I like it so far, except for the characters and how they all talk. It's like their dialogue was written by people who think this is how everyone talks these days. That and the driving mechanics still suck, but those aren't enough to break the game for me. Still fun to play.
I have both of those! I put probably 150+ hours into Zelda the day it came out for like a straight 2 weeks practically. there were a few hours where I was doing something like watching youtube or something but I demolished that game. I would say its the most fun ive had in a game in a LONG time, but the past few months have been EXCELLENT as far as good games go. With MK8D, I only got it because my roomie and I are super nerds and are really competitive with MK and with friends. one of our most frequent nights is 2-3 people over taking turns filling the room with salt. Couldn't ask for better friends.I finished Persona 5 a week ago with 140 hours put into that playthrough, fantastic game. I'm currently playing Shadow of Mordor. I will probably get through a small list of short games this month.
I also bought a Nintendo Switch at the last minute but no game yet. I not sure if i want to get MK8 Deluxe or Breath of The Wild.
Might have to wrap it in spoilers, but how did you feel about the end? It basically sucked my desire to keep playing for some reason.
Nice dude!Well, I haven't posted here in quite a while, but it has been quite ride in terms of gaming, so this is going to be a very long post as a bit of a catchup.
In terms of games that I'm currently playing right now, I've been playing Kirby Planet Robobot, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Overwatch, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Wonderboy the Dragon's Trap and Zelda BotW.
I am actually very close to completing Kirby, Xenoblade and Wonderboy.
I only have to do Kirby's True Arena. It has been challenging, but it doesn't look impossible. I've only attempted it 3 times so far. The first two attempts I managed to get to Galacta Knight and the 3rd attempt I managed to actually get to the final form of the boss, but I had only enough hp to take 2 hits, so I ended up being killed normally by a hit from one of the pillars and one of its bomb attacks. The only boss I've had real trouble with is the Dedede clone boss fight surprisingly.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is pretty much just some fun with family and friends. I will probably not be focusing on completing this one since I did a pretty good amount of work on the Wii U version. I never got the DLC, so it was still a somewhat new experience
Xenoblade X was a long term amount of progress with me stopping and starting it up at least 3 separate times. I actually completed the first Xenoblade Chronicles, so I was expecting this to take a while. After nearly 30+ hours of post-game farming, I just finished off the arguably most powerful superboss in the game, Telethia the Endbringer, so I only need a single quest to get 100% survey on all of Mira. The final quest I need is Rise of the Blood Lobster, which is a collection quest with 99 hidden items in the city. It is driving me a bit insane and reminding me a bit too much about Korok seeds in BoTW(Which I have 300+ of) so I'm probably just going to look up the locations.
I picked up Wonderboy off of the E-Shop for the Switch and I was pleasantly surprised. I hadn't played any of the old Wonderboy titles back then, but it really did feel quite genuine in terms of old platformers along with an amazing soundtrack. I actually ended up finishing the game without fighting Pirate Dragon since I somehow figured out how to find and use the Tasmanian sword without using a guide. First time I figured out the secondary function of the sword, I actually got stuck and thought the game was glitched. Only need to farm for coins to get all the items, and I'm set. I finished a majority of this in only about 5 hours in one day.
I finally picked up Overwatch a few months ago and I'm enjoying it. I mostly end up picking Mercy though. I do love supports in most games. I jumped right into ranked straightaway and it seems like I did okay. Ended up right on the border of 2000 and only had to play a few more games to get past it. I haven't really gone any farther though since I've dropped to 1920 currently.
I have all the shrines completed in Zelda, still have to do a little less than 10 sidequests. I'm mostly just messing around now. I'm actually trying to figure out if it is possible to beat all of Ganon's Blight forms using only deflection(with a pot lid), though considering the amount of damage you do with it, it seems like a very tedious kind of thing, so I'm not sure if it is even possible. When the game first came out, I actually tried to see if an early completion was possible with only 3 hearts, but I had poor weapons at the time so I had to use unupgraded bombs after my gear broke. I actually got all the way to the 4th form with certain camping spots and bombs. It took me 3 1/2 hours to get to this point... Then I got one shot by a normal sword attack from the 4th form.
Other games that I completed/finished/played in my time away include Don't Starve Together, Dwarf Fortress, Final Fantasy X, Lisa: The Painful, Papers Please, Parappa the Rapper 1 and 2, Pokemon Sun and Moon, Rhythm Heaven Megamix, and Starbound.
I typically play Don't Starve Together with my little brother and his friends. We've never made it past summer time.
I opened up Dwarf Fortress for about 10 minutes, looked up a guide, got confused by the screen and decided to close it up for another time. I don't know if I'll ever understand the interface.
I got tired of the end game monster arena farming in FFX. I'm actually rather close, so I could probably complete the game and fight the final superboss in about a weeks time of normal gameplay, but it really seems quite tedious. I am not sure if I will pick it up again.
I've played Lisa:The Painful for a few hours. I have a soft spot in my heart for RPGs like this, so I will probably continue playing this eventually. It seems rather dark though.
Same thing for Papers Please, I haven't gotten an ending yet, though I did enjoy it for the short time that I played it.
I completed and got cool mode on Parappa the Rapper rather easily on all stages. As hilarious as the freestyle was on the first one, it was rather easy to complete. I had a lot of trouble getting cool mode on 2, so decided to just leave it as a finished game.
Pokemon Moon is probably the longest amount of time that I've spent attempting to get the last 1% of a 99% completed game ever. This 1% being the Multis mode of the battle tree. The amount of time that I've spent breeding/trading/doing battles in it has overlapped the time I've spent beating and completing the Pokedex for this one mode. That's not even including the research I did with a community of people who were also doing the battle tree. What's horrible is that I still haven't completed it. 50 streak Super Singles and Doubles were completed in a reasonable 8-12 attempts, but multis. Oh Multis... I am currently on attempt #76. I've used 14 separate teams with 2 subpar AI partners. I've gone through Doubles at least 9 times looking for good partners, but alas RNG is not good to me. I only managed to see Red and Blue on attempt #27 with one of my least prepared Pokemon just for the fun of it, in which that battle they utterly annihilated me in. My last attempt was done when I was in line for a midnight release of the Nintendo Switch. That run ended on the 49th trainer, right before Red and Blue... After getting the switch, it is pretty obvious why I haven't gone back to it just yet. Oh, I also went to a regional a long while back. Actually almost got to play into top 16, but I got beat by a guy using a cheesy, yet effective Butterfree strategy. Sleep OP. Still a pretty nice result considering I was also kind of using a cheesy team since I had no UBs or Tapus on it.
On the other hand, Pokemon Sun is a simple Nuzlocke file. Not much to say here as it is going rather well with no dead Pokemon while being near the end of the 3rd island. I don't play it often though.
Rhythm Heaven is another game where I've been stuck on the very last part of the game, though I still have to feed the goat to the max level. The game I need to perfect is Machine Remix. Those hair patterns are so hard to hit, especially using just the normal button controls. I think I'll eventually get it, but I've attempted this game a lot more than should be normal.
I've played Starbound for a bit on a server. The main game was kind of boring to be honest, but I beat it anyway.
I'm currently looking into playing
Shovel Knight Specter of Torment
and of course the beta to this game when it comes out. I'll be looking forward to playing with you all!
