Yeahhhh... I'm calling it quits. Playtime's around 30 hours.
My main gripe is the sheer amount of meandering and tedious dialogue in this game. The gameplay and mission design basically revolves around the loop of talking and shooting. Therefore, the quests become highly repetitive. The usually pattern goes: Talk to this important person, ok they want something first, go get that thing, fight (the same) groups of bandits, now return.
I no longer feel bothered to explore the procedurally-generated planets, and the game's atmosphere feels cold and distant (when compared to something like, say, Skyrim.)
A shame, as Starfield started out so strong. Oh well.
Definitely in my top 10 games list. Probably even top 5. No question.
In terms of world design, Elden Ring is to the fantasy setting what Red Dead 2 is to the Wild West. Both are beautifully realised, expansive yet in-depth simulators of their respective settings. Both share a richness and authenticity that is not often seen in this medium.
The Amazing Spiderman 2
Better then expected, just like with the first Amazing Spiderman game.
The only thing that it has in common with the movie is a boss fight with Electro & another with Green Goblin.
Otherwise, Kraven, Kingpin & Carnage are there.
If you played the game, then watched the movie. You would be very disappointed lol.
75 Hours Including School stories.
Great game, some inconsistent difficulty spikes but you can usually cheese them.
With all the DLC it really feels more like 1.5 games, so the storylines and pacing can get a bit muddled.
Def worth the price at the moment!
Now just going to tool around in the Kaito files
@Fantomex - Congrats on getting that far. Made 50 hours in Starfield for review purposes and enjoyed the opening campaign missions, United COlonies faction quests, and the Ryujin Industries cyberpunk-ish quests. But yeah, it's too much running back and forth without that awesome sense of exploring a new and continuous space like in The Elder Scrolls games. Reducing most of the main missions to hunting down identical temples on boring proc-gen worlds was a terrible choice.
Sniper Elite V2 Remaster
Still my fav Sniper game, besides the Zombie ones.
Prefer the more linier levels, also the kill cam is more satisfying.
The DLC is 4 challenge maps, one of them being assassinate Hitler. Which was very disappointing.
He runs from hiding spot, to hiding spot. Have to have the reflexes of Bullseye or Deadshot to snipe him on the move. Ended up sniping him in the foot, that was sticking out from behind cover lol
