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?

Me Gots A Doom Boner! 
Just saw Doom Eternal's full gameplay reveal from QuakeCon 2018 and it looks pretty cool! Seems even faster-paced than the previous iteration, probably because of the grappling hook attached to the DBS. That thing makes Doomguy fly around like crazy!

There was some mysterious concept art presenting a new "world", accompanied by a cryptic commentary about "not just making a Doom game but building a Doom universe". Huh! Makes me wonder... Could it be id's version of... a heaven?

The archvile looks awesome! A very much welcome change from the awkward Doom 2 sprite that I never liked.

"The archvile looks awesome! A very much welcome change from the awkward Doom 2 sprite that I never liked. " 
Ummm... Nuffin? 
Always found this monster quite ridiculous to look at, especially when it moves - you gotta admit its animation looks somewhat disjointed.
Now it looks badass. 
 
Does anyone feel it looks a bit "video-gamey" during the action gameplay? The few seconds of other world and mention of proper universe (about fucking time guys) sounds really promising, but the all of the place action gameplay they showed didn't seem that impressive to me. Graphics were a bit shiny and fake. I suppose id aren't pushing the graphics boundaries anymore... seen as how that turned out with Rage 
 
Rage 2 looks decent as well.

Awfull fucking gliding around with controller demos...I hate when they show the player movement as some stabilised smooth camera on rails thingy... 
Doom Eternal 
Doom Eternal seems mostly cool, what I dislike the most is the demon art design (they look like generic alien bugs, their "scary" animations are stupid as they were in 2016, archvile looks like a protoss, cacodaemons too goofy), the plasma gun sound (pew pew? Seriously?) and the fact that we are still a few steps away from the glorious past (still too few enemies on the screen, level design doesn't seem as complex as the best quake\doom stuff including custom wads\levels)

anyway the rest was really interesting and I liked the digs at politically correctness. I am sure that by the next doom or 2 we will have a game with the best parts of the old fps classics and the best of the new gameplay\tech enhanchments.

bye bye 
 
cacodaemons too goofy
Oh, because that red & blue blob in classic Doom wasn't? 
 
original was goofy and creepy. New is goofiER 
Oh, So For You, 
a cute & awkward drawing is creepy but an evil-looking model is goofy? Umm, OK... 
 
that big smile and 1 eye is a little goofy, but you sort of forget the goofy look when you're fighting them. The eternal caco looks good I reckon, more like the original caco compared to the 2016 one that looked more like an angler fish. cyclops/close together eyes will always look a little goofy. 
A Few Thoughts On The Last Of Us 
Played my very first console game ever, well, not ever I had a Sega Master System as a kid with the 1 built in game but that didn't really count.

Fuck these controllers suck compared to mouse. They're no easier on your hands too, the movements sticks aren't very nice the way they stick into your finger. And fuck me does it take a century to do a 360. But with industry going on about The Last of Us being one of the GOAT I couldn't skip it. I thought maybe I could catch up on some other good PS only games I've missed, but actually there isn't a lot... Killzone, Uncharted... meh. Maybe there's some better once since then I haven't checked.

A difficult stealth game probably wasn't my best choice to learn the controller either haha fuck I could nearly have smashed the thing a couple of times, and I was on easy mode lol. But it's taken me like 2 years to get used to WASD so it would probably take up to 10 games to really get used to a controller I think.

Anyway great game indeed. I don't know if I would say GOAT, the combat isn't all that great. Stealth in Styx was just as good. Melee was inconsistent "I'm pressing the fucking button do something you cunt!!!" was often yelled as I blind fuck waddled up to me. But the game would have been piss easy on PC I would have just ran past everyone with ease I reckon. I guess I should be challenged in a game occassionally though, on PC it's too easy to slap on a cheat if one section is giving me a headache.

Story all good but really not all that different to the Walking Dead games released before it. It's just yet another zombie franchise cashing in on TWD popularity. But at least it had more backstory.

I was playing the improved remastered version and the design was all great, plenty of beautiful visuals. The DLC was good too. SO yeah great game. Not as good as Bioshock Infinite and GTA V released that year though, maybe #3 for 2013. Pretty hard to top those 2 games though what with BI having one of the best stories in game ever and GTA V well that's almost beyond just a game, it's part-game, part epic cinematic experience.

Anything else (exclusive) that's a must-play on PS4? 
Uncharted 4 
I love the Uncharted franchise and the 4th game is a ps4 exclusive. Breathtaking designs and set pieces. The follow up title 'Lost Legacy" was fun as well and well worth the money IMO.

I had to laugh when you said <q.A difficult stealth game probably wasn't my best choice to learn the controller either

Yeah dude - what were you thinking. The learning curve on that game is very steep. Good news is Uncharted games are MUCH easier.

GOG 
Is their exe Galaxy worth using? 
 
I'm using Galaxy, it's ok. It manages installations and updates, like Steam. It's more convenient than downloading install package, especially when you want to update games. Also they store saves in cloud for you, although I'm not sure if all games are supported. 
Better Than Uplay 
Also, Galaxy can be required for multiplayer sometimes. I think Shadow Warrior 2 users can play with Steam users if they use Galaxy, for instance. 
New Quake Like !! 
Project Warlock Comming 18 October To GoG !! 
 
Looks Pretty Good 
Lots of nice details and I like the art style. 
Not A Quake-like 
More like a super-beefed up Wolf3D. Interesting art style for sure, though. Will keep an eye on it. 
 
 
looks like duke meets doom meets wolf 
 
meets ROTT
