  1. To be fair, I will only include games that were made before June 30, 2016--the date this topic was posted. Newer games like Frostpunk and Steel Division could have been on anybody's list, I suppose. Below are my top 5, in no particular order: Journey is a unique game in which there is neither violence nor competition with other players, just a moving and memorable experience. The visuals and music are top-notch. The Max Payne series was known for its unmatched third-person gunplay and bullet-time animations. Max Payne 3, in particular, moved the series forward with its grittier tone and more realistic graphics. Neverwinter Nights' original campaign was wholly forgettable, but the countless community-created content made this game stand out among most RPGs. Saints Row 4 is another game which became better because of mods. But the most fun I had with this game was when I created a character which looked exactly like my wife--face, figure and voice. Games from the Worms series, especially Worms: Armageddon, are in my opinion, among the best TBS games of all time. I have been hooked to these games since childhood, and still checking out the newer games like Worms W.M.D.
  2. Edited photos are fine if subtly done. Skin imperfections can be altered while preserving creases where they are normally found. In your example above, a trained eye would easily notice the overdone editing on the model’s left pit.
  3. The Enhanced Edition of the 15-year old game Neverwinter Nights was re-released early this year and got me replaying the campaigns. All content from the Diamond Edition are included in this edition. Community modules from the old nwnvault are fully compatible with this version. Those interested in epic character builds should see my take on the Speed Caster, which I posted in nwnecbguild.com
  4. in development for PC: Watch Dogs 3 <https://www.dailystar.co.uk/tech/gaming/707175/Watch-Dogs-3-News-Release-Date-rumours-London-setting-Ubisoft-teasers-and-more-updates> Steel Division 2 <https://www.steeldivision2.com> Sunset Overdrive <https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-11-01-it-looks-like-insomniacs-sunset-overdrive-is-heading-to-pc>
  5. Ebb software has shown a new trailer of the horror game, Scorn, which is slated for October (?) 2018 release. Watch it and be hype[d: hxxps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gug_0mNhg4k Notice the improvement in the animation, when you compare it with the previous trailer released over a year ago. The protagonist’s hands now appear more humanlike, but the alien gun he is wielding still looks as grotesquely organic as ever. Support this game on Kickstarter, and early backers may get this game at $5 off its price.
  6. Video from Eurogamer’s coverage of Shadow of War featuring Tor Goroth the Balrog (spoiler warning): [hxxps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZsrWuimYyc] I disagree with the tester complaining about the movement of Tor Goroth being rather fast for its size. I find little sense in his comment but his perspective of equating large size for sluggishness was actually depicted in some films (i.e. Kronos in Wrath of the Titans, and even Durin’s Bane in the Fellowship of the Ring). Imagine if you were a god like Kronos, would you move that slow as was shown in the film? If you suddenly feel an itch in your ear, how long would you be able to raise your hand to scratch it? The tester also criticized the ‘strange decision’ of the developers for the Balrog to be fought with the aid a Graug; therefore it seemed underwhelming to him. But it was only logical that Talion would attempt to use a beast of similar size (and apparently controlled by the Spirit of Carnan from what I figured) if he intended to defeat it. If there was anything to whine about, it was Talion’s animations which looked inferior even when compared to what I’ve seen in Shadow of Mordor. The tester even praised the ‘silky smooth’ combat in the rest of the game, but ignored the fact that this should not be always evident especially when Talion is fighting in rough terrain. See the video below: [hxxps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLMklHZhZ50] It seems that Talion is fighting in a smooth icy surface...still hoping for a more polished game.
  7. The latest sequel to the Playstation hit Fear Effect series, Fear Effect Sedna, is set to arrive next year across many platforms including PC. It’s disappointing though, that they’re employing isometric view unlike the fixed camera angles of previous games to invoke survival horror. However, I’m optimistic about the original title’s remake, Fear Effect: Reinvented, which retains most elements of the series. It is also coming in 2018.
  8. Probably because both the government and the media need to be educated also. And yes, we should worry if a drug like cannabis becomes legalized in our country. Not in a third world country where laws are not implemented efficiently.
  9. Suicidal people need not listen to these tunes: Tears of Pain (Silent Hill OST) Pain (Max Payne 3 OST)
  10. Steel Division: Normandy 44
  11. Historical records dating back from antiquity show that humans are capable of dealing ‘justice’ in such brutal ways. But there is no need for that in a civilized society. A humane death for a criminal serves the "human brain (that is) coded for compassion, for guilt, for a kind of empathic pain that causes the person inflicting harm to feel a degree of suffering."
  12. Pro-death penalty. But before the poor people who commit crimes are put to death, the people who made their lives poor and indirectly forced them to criminality (the plunderers and drug lords) should be executed first.
  13. Shadow of Mordor got a sequel titled Middle Earth: Shadow of War. The story follows Talion and Celebrimbor forging their own Ring of Power to defeat Sauron. Release date initially set on August 22.
  14. Good news for Asian girls. Not all men prefer large breasts. This was the conclusion of a 2008 study published on the Journal of Socioeconomics, Wealthier men tend to like smaller-breasted women, while men who less financially stable prefer those who are well-endowed.
  15. Why spend money on games? Because our money is meant to be spent not only on our needs but our wants as well. What is the most money you have spent on a single game? The most I have spent is under 2k for a single game. What have you bought, in which games, and why? Only free DLCs. Have you ever spent money and swiftly regretted it? God of War Ghost of Sparta for the PSP, because it updated my PSP's firmware and couldn't anymore play games previously installed on it. Batman Arkham City for the PC and Battlefield 3 Season Pass are in my opinion a waste of money and therefore, I ignored the later games from those series. I prefer DRM-free games. I have never pre-ordered. Are you more inclined to spend money if a game is less aggressive about nudging you to pay? I am only remotely interested in DLCs. It seems to me that they usually are of less quality than the base game. I have no experience with F2P. I do not play games that are purely online. I don't play games on my cell phone.
