Other PC Games Thread.
So with the film and music threads still going and being discussed... why don't we get some discussion going on something on topic to the board? What other games are you playing now?

Mutant Year Zero 
looks bloody great. Looking forward to final release :) 
Ghost Of A Tale 
aka Mouse Souls: Prepare To Styx Edition.

Basically if what you really want in gaming is a direct combination of Styx (gameplay mechanics), Wind In The Willows (characters and theme) and a hint of Dark Souls (map unfolding and occasional traps), then this is the game you've been waiting for. And it's actually really well done, if you don't mind slow gameplay as your routes and quests slowwwly unfold. The setting and plot are good (although the game world is tiny), the control system is refreshingly direct and responsive, and the mouse Tilo is endearingly cute and well animated. There's a few issues: some graphical glitches, textures are a bit busy, night time is very gloomy, navigating the world is slow, and it really could have done with voice acting - not least because the characters and dialogue are pretty good. But I really liked it (and I am not a fan of cartoony cuteness) and reckon it's worth a look... 
It's Also On Sale Right Now 
Free Game: Satellite Reign 
https://www.humblebundle.com/store/satellite-reign

Still valid for 30 hours as of the time of this post. 
 
Hey, I think I saw that game in one of Ross Scott's videos recently. One more for the pile of free games from the Bundle, then. 
Thanks 
game worth trying? 
Kingold 
I don't know if it is worth playing for you. I haven't played it myself either. The reviews at GOG or Steam or the like seem mostly positive, though. 
Sorry I Fucked Up The Title In The Previous Post 
Is there any way to correct that? Thanks.

Yes It Is Worth Playing. 
It's not that deep / gripping, it's a quite repetitive, but it plays well, the gameworld and style are nice and the music is really good.

I have no regrets when I got it full price.

Rage 2 
Awful For All The Reasons Discussed In #discord. 
FARCALLOFDESTINY called and want their gameplay back. 
 
number of elements Rage 2 shares with the amalgamated name Shambler created = 0 
 
oh wait theres guns tho 
Lol 
It's on. It's on like Fat Pat's thong. 
@muk 
Welcome to idiotville, popular: you. It is a horrible mishmash of cliches served up with a naff style, appalling marketing and ott motion blur and explosions obfuscating everything. 
 
being the most popular idiot in idiotville doesnt sound like a bad deal. like i could be the biggest idiot in idiotville? but im actually the most popular so this is an honor. 
Knob! 
 
Lmao 
shambler fail. 
Thats A Gameplay Trailer? 
didn't have much gameplay. Well put together trailer though admittedly it is quite cliched.

The shooty shooty gun bits looked punchy enough, but would have to see more footage to be sure. 
I Think The Trailer Did A Great Job.... 
...it's saved me £40 for sure. 
 
By now, id's business plan seems to use each franchise for a different public.

Doom is their core singleplayer franchise.
Quake is their multiplayer franchise.
Wolfenstein is their story-driven franchise.

So, what will Rage be? Their sandbox/open-world franchise?

And most importantly, when will we get a Commander Keen reboot? 
 
They still need a battle royale franchise 
 
Crysis = Success
Far Cry = Success
Borderlands = Success
Rage 1 = Failure

So why not make Rage 2 basically a Crysis/FarCry gameplay with Borderlands environment mishmash. They don't owe the fans a damn thing after the way Doom3 and Rage got unfairly shat all over just because of stupidly high expectations. 
#10386 And #10388 
Pretty good points aye. 
 
"Doom is their core singleplayer franchise. "

Fuckoff, where is the SP DLC / expansion pack whatever ?? :D 
 
Why waste time with DLC when you can just crack on with "Doom 5 (aka Doom 4 / 2016 (aka "DOOM") 2)"

I assume that's what id's core team are doing, and if not then 
 
The original Doom 2 was exactly this as we all know. 
Let's Be Honest 
when you nail the original, giving them more of the same for the sequel is often the smart move.

Shame Quake didn't turn out like that :( 
Unreal Gold Is Free 
You can get a free digital copy of Unreal Gold from Steam and GOG. The offer will be up for 35+ hours as of now.

^Totally Not A Self Promotion 
 
 
yeah seems spammy, but primal is a user on our site, unless this is just someone pretending to be primal. Or primal was a spammer all along! Opinions? 
'twas Me 
It was my post without logging in. I am not any of the multiple people involved in making this game. If I were connected to it somehow, I would have said so.

I put the Twitter handle in there in case someone wants to find out more about the game. You can also find it by reading the Steam page carefully.

I'll be happy to take advice on how to word posts like this to not look spammy or self-promotional. I've made a few of them before and nobody's complained as far as I can remember.

In other news, I played Q.U.B.E Director's Cut recently, and it was all right with decent puzzle progression. Kind of like Portal in some ways, but not quite as engaging. Reviews suggest the sequel has easier puzzles, so I am skipping it for now. 
 
 
Is BlackRoom TRYING to be the ugliest game ever made? 
Lol 
Romero's career really did take a turn for the worse after leaving id. 
My Eyes!! 
Primal: 
It was the "follow them on twitter" part that seemed the most like it was written by a marketer. :) But, because I recognized your name I didn't flag it as spam. It's a difficult line because community members like should be able to post links to games they think are cool/interesting, but we don't want outside spammers posting links like that. But the content of the post in both cases is the same. So the only way to tell them apart is if I know the person posting it. (Off topic posts to things like jewelry and bootleg purses are easier to flag)
