Watched a review. They said it starts off fun, but then becomes extremely grindy with repetitive unskippable cut scenes. What is your take?

PGA Tour 2k21 is 50% off at 29.99 for another 21+ hours if anyone wish-listed or is interested. I took the plunge but haven't looked at it yet.

I never got past the first area, so I don't know. I was terrible at the timing for dodging necessary to survive early combat. I could see it happening though.

Well it definitely works, that much I've proven to my satisfaction. How well it'll work under different conditions, still TBD.

The free version feels pretty hamstrung to me: limited to one hour sessions and in my first test tonight, the queue to get on to try CK3 as a test was 18 minutes. I can't imagine trying to play anything I'd play in 60 min (minus load times) increments, then break for 15-20 mins, resume, repeat.

That said, I'm only dallying with the free version enough to kinda explore the concept, and that so far has been fine. I do want to try it at different times of day, weekends vs weekdays, etc. before biting off on a monthly or 6 month subscription. The short test found the game running fine as far as I could tell, the one downside being that the graphics were a little blurry, which would be death on the eyes for any of the text-heavy titles. But I'll need to play with resolutions, settings (in-game and out), etc to see if I can clear that up.

The games currently available are kinda all over the place. Things I can't run with my rig that would be opened up included CK3, EU4, and HOI4. Rimworld and Surviving Mars are both on the available list too.

For some idea of there/not there: those are there, Kenshi is there, Don't Starve is there but no Battle Brothers, no Fallout titles, no Sid Meier titles,no X-Com titles. Also I noticed several games that were available but only if you had specific editions of the game.

My advice for anyone else interested in this would be don't assume a game is/isn't there. Figure out what you wish was there and scroll through their list. There's surprises in both yes and no directions.

I was at least this encouraged though: I caught HOI4 on a flash sale for $10 and bought it tonight, so that's a sign that I'm {gulp} somewhat optimistic I suppose.

Good news Jon, glad it seems to be working out. I have yet to have any big delays getting into No Man's Sky with it thankfully. You get Priority queueing when you pay for it so that probably will help there.

I do get some lag with it from time to time, but I haven't fiddled with the graphics settings yet to see if it helps or not. I would second your advice to make sure you check the list of available games before investing in it, and giving the free version a whirl first to see if it works for you.

fwiw update ... I was encouraged enough by some dabbling with GeForce Now that I plunked down $5 for a month to expand my testing.

It's not without some issues, tho not necessarily (or even likely) Nvidia's fault. I quickly learned that daytime internet in Athens probably isn't stable enough to play during weekdays. Connection would drop (intermittent outtages are routine around here) and the game would just shut down, apparently Nvidia has an extremely low tolerance for that, a minute or less.

My first truly extended session was overnight last night and it was pretty much without issue. The need to disconnect and reconnect when doing close/reopen to tweak video settings was a little frustrating but I didn't have any issues doing so. And toward the end of the session there was some anxiety caused by knowing the 6-hour (paid version) session timer was ticking.

But pending my internet's ability to handle it, this might truly be a significant find.

The game is super fun. I really enjoyed! I got super into it, but then stopped because updates were making some significant changes to the game. I decided to wait until the game got further along to dive back in. I think that time is now!

Anyone tried the free to play game gridiron on steam? 14 player 7v7 football where each player controls a single player obviously? I'm having a lot of fun with it despite it being early access.

I really liked the idea of Prison Architect and got into for a while, but the limited moddability combined with what IMO are some non-trivial balance issues made it a short stay for me.

I can't think of the guy's name atm, Will watches him frequently & I end up seeing/hearing it when he's home. But the YouTuber who goes out of his way to break games (via exploits) has pretty much killed any interest I'd ever have in any of the "tycoon" type games. As far as I can tell they're all pretty much broken.

I mean, I know the YouTuber is trying to break them & illustrates with absurd examples but most of the stuff I've seen doesn't start with anything that couldn't come up in regular gameplay (often just through rookie mistakes).

If you are an email subscriber (and/or) purchased something from Fanatical recently, check your email for a Secret Santa gift-a free game. I have no idea what other games you might get, but nothing says XMas like a Zombie Derby: Pixel Survival, am I right? You also get a $5 off coupon on your next order, which is in more of the Christmas spirit.

Curious what game you got if you got the secret santa from them

The Spiffing Brit? He's a member of the Yogscast now. Pretty crazy that companies pay him to find exploits?

Yeah, that's the one. I just went blank, was coming up with names of other Brit 'casters and knew those weren't right.

He's entertaining and all, I just know that I'd be the guy to stumble onto one of the absurdities by accident and then would never touch the game again, so I just keep my money in my wallet on those.

He's covered a lot of the big games out there, like Stellaris, Civ, Skyrim etc, so pretty soon you'd be playing no games

That's what mass-market does to games. Exploits increase exponentially with any increase in feature set, it's unavoidable, and people always want more bells and whistles added. Meanwhile there are all manner of serious strategy games out there not necessarily geared in that direction ... but they're mostly indie efforts not played by that many people. When you market to 'casual' gamers - and there's nothing inherently wrong with that, mind - there are certain consequences to that activity.

I haven't seen anyone talking about Oxygen Not Included. It's a little older, but I just picked it up on sale, and am really enjoying it. It's got a little bit of a Rimworld feel to it, but more focused on survival against the elements instead of combat.

My first attempt at a colony, when I had no idea what I was doing, was a short experiment (AKA disaster) where my dupes (colonists) ended up peeing in my water supply early on, and it devolved from there. My second attempt wasn't much better as I ran out of oxygen and everyone started dying off.

However, my third attempt was glorious, at least initially. I had farms, ranches, plenty of food, plenty of oxygen, my research was going fantastic. I had advanced plumbing and ventilation systems. Then I noticed my crops were all dying. What I neglected to plan for was the rise of temperature in my colony, and it was spiraling out of control.

I can't wait to see how I screw up my fourth attempt.

I think it's time to admit that my desire to buy the latest & greatest of video games (typically RPG/Strategy related) doesn't match my capacity to actually fire it up and spend the time learning all the intricacies necessary. While I've never been a Min/Maxer, I do like to have some idea of what I'm doing.

Most recently, I purchased Crusader Kings 3. After watching videos and reviews all clearly saying although it is still a complicated grand strategy game (typical of Paradox), this had a much improved tutorial and was an ideal jumping onboard process. Working thru the Tutorial scenario, I found myself asking what have I gotten myself in to. Even with all of the screens and tooltips, I still feel there is just SO much to comprehend. I suspect this is the same with other recent titles (Shadow Empire is another example).

So then I think maybe I should jump back into an Action RPG (I'm looking at you Path of Exile). At least there, I can grasp the systems and progress. And jump in & out when time is available without having to re-learn everything again. Or re-download Elder Scrolls - Skyrim.

But I'd love to hear any suggestions on single-player RPGs where it doesn't take me as long to learn how to play than to actually play the game...

My suggestion is FO76. I've actually not played it for 2-3 months now (got burned out) but they are starting to add NPCs with their DLCs, and has improved quite a bit IMO.

My first attempt at a colony, when I had no idea what I was doing, was a short experiment (AKA disaster) where my dupes (colonists) ended up peeing in my water supply early on, and it devolved from there. My second attempt wasn't much better as I ran out of oxygen and everyone started dying off.

However, my third attempt was glorious, at least initially. I had farms, ranches, plenty of food, plenty of oxygen, my research was going fantastic. I had advanced plumbing and ventilation systems. Then I noticed my crops were all dying. What I neglected to plan for was the rise of temperature in my colony, and it was spiraling out of control.

I can't wait to see how I screw up my fourth attempt.

I've killed my fair share of dupes. I've gotten reliably through the early game into the mid game on my third try. I'm in good shape but just realized that I've used up all of my copper. Who knew that only occurred in your starting biome? My base is a bit sprawling and disorganized but I think I'm looking good to take it into the late game. Now to figure out steel. Ok maybe I still have some mid game to navigate.

I think this might be the lowest price I have seen for Death Stranding-$24 for the next 24 hours at Fanatical

Does anyone have a license for F1 2020 they aren't using and would sell/trade/gift? I'd love to give this game a try this weekend.

Let me look and see. I have F1 2019, but don't see 2020 in my current list.

I looked and, unfortunately, I don't have F1 2020.

Ha yeah I might. I dunno it's a love hate this year with Madden. I like more than I dislike, but still have things that just bother me.
