I'm totally immersed in BG3, it's clearly one of the best games ever made, no cap.

Just came into chapter 3 after 60 hours.

I bought it last week and have been playing a bit almost every day. The story and freedom aspects are fun but the combat is just so frustrating. I think I might actually lower the difficulty.

Yeah, do it. The combat system has so many tricks that until you figure them out, it's going to be harder than it should be. Also check examine on every new foe, to see their weaknesses and non-weaknesses.

One of the neat tricks is dropping a candle on the floor to use "dip weapon" to make a fire arrow :) just don't drop it on a greasy floor

Or that you can use your arrows to open hanging cages. ;) That is how you get a certain character to join sooner.

Definitely gonna start examining enemies more often, as well as using my surroundings.

I also want to check out V Rising but I'm iffy on buying early access games.

V Rising still isn't 1.0? Wasn't the early access opened last year?

It's stream page still lists it as early access. Funnily enough it has DLC.

Lords of the Fallen is the first PS5 game that I bought with pre-order and disappointed me from the first day I played it. Maybe no company should make souls type games except FromSoftware. I'll still keep playing. I hope I'm wrong about my initial disappointment.
Well I was damn wrong. The game is getting better and harder. Sometimes patience works.

I heard this game starts hard but gets easier after the first few bosses. I'm hyped for it, but first I still have to get Dark Souls 3 haha

I have some quidditch test play codes left if anyone wants one please DM me, they are unique codes due to NDA.

The play test ends Friday so I know it ain't long but thought I'd post as I've some left, it runs fantastic on a steam deck too.

Pc only.

Those who say that the game gets easier as they progress are the same people who explore by watching step-by-step walkthrough videos every time when they get stuck. Every game is easy if they play like that 😃

Normally, we Turks hate each other. You rarely see Turks having the same opinion on anything. Almost all famous Turkish gamers say on their social media accounts that Alan Wake 2 is the best game of the year. I've never read this much praise even for Baldur's Gate 3. I don't know what other people from other countries think ,but I'll definitely play the 2nd game at the first opportunity as a fan of the 1st game.

It's a weird game. It looks gorgeous, but mechanically it doesn't seem as much fun as I hoped. Too many good games this year :D

Finally after 113 hours (99 hours in game if we don't count reloads) I have beaten Baldur's Gate 3 and it is so far my clear favourite for GOTY.

Had a pretty good ending considering, went to read online how others managed. Looks like there are several different endings just for the "good" playthrough. Impressive stuff.

Spiderman 2 kind of sucks.... has 5-6 Mary Jane stealth missions..... if that's not bad enough you have to play a mission as Miles' deaf gf who doesn't talk and you have to spray pant walls.......

both those type of missions are as brutal as the Arkham Knight Batmobile Tank missions.

Also every boss battle is just the same thing with like 4-5 rounds. The 1st game is much better

Agree.

The game looks phenomenal though, but the first had a much better storyline

The photos are better you take in the 1st game. The side missions and the crime missions are absolutely the same as the first game. No new stuff was added or thought were out into it.

Also feels like a FIFA roster update each year ea tries to charge you $70
For

Also the original Peter actor is so much better looking that the cut scenes on the ps4 game look like Ps6 ones

The Peter actor just looks really generic and not like a real person. No idea why they changed it


The black suit combat is kind of cool but you are pretty much in god mode.

Also hate Kraven…… they did his character in such a crap way

Not gonna lie, I don't see much appeal in these Spiderman games. It just looks like a lot of fluff, no substance.

Must be why I'm playing Dark Souls 3 right now :D

Dark Souls 3 also look bad for today's standards, but it plays like a charm. Graphics are the least important thing.

I like the heavily scripted missions in Spiderman games because at least it's a spectacle. Everything else, the open world, the hiding missions, the mini quests.... snoozefest. Not worth more than 20 dollars.
