re: Ghost of Tsushima game discussion - oauron
[quote]Just finished the main story and going to take a break, cause I'm kind of burned out. I have a bit more left to get full completion. Are there new stories? [/quote] There's some rumored DLC, but nothing new yet....

re: How much of an impact did Breath of the Wild actually have on the gaming industry? - oauron
[quote]All have incredible production values, but didn't really innovate.[/quote] You used the word refine. I'd argue that the open world was one of the worst elements of the game because how empty the open world was. It's sticks out more in mind now that I'm playing Ghosts of Tsushima. It doesn't ...

re: How much of an impact did Breath of the Wild actually have on the gaming industry? - oauron
[quote]I think it refined the open world game moreso than any other game since GTA 3. And I think that will show over time. [/quote] Whaaaat? Red Dead Redemption, Witcher 3, Skyrim, all of Ubisoft's catalog? Considering BOTW lifted just about every bit of its open world from other games, but decid...

re: Obligatory every so often 'Games you're currently playing' thread - oauron
Ghosts of Tsushima - I think I'm at the end of Act 2. I've been trying to complete most of map before going on to final story mission. Total War: Troy - Started a campaign as Odysseus. Going well so far. Astral Chain - I've been so ADD on this one, that I'm hoping to actually sit down and play my ...

re: Mistborn trilogy - oauron
I really loved Mistborn as well. I'm all in on Sanderson and his works. Can't wait for Rhythm of War to come in November. That said, I'll be the lone dissenting voice on Era 1 vs Era 2. They're different and both very good, but Era 2 is a clear step down. The scope and tone is entirely different,...

re: Wheel of Time TV Series, (Casting news continues, production should be restarting soon) - oauron
[quote] Only quibble being Perrin is taller than Rand. Rand being taller than the other Two Rivers folk was a major clue to his origins. [/quote] Height can be messed with using angles, editing, etc. Otherwise Tom Cruise wouldn't be able to be action movie star. :lol: Even Rosamund Pike is a b...

re: Wheel of Time TV Series, (Casting news continues, production should be restarting soon) - oauron
I'm a bit skeptical. Huge Fantasy/sci-fi fan and has no idea about Wheel of Time and was lost 30 minutes in? WoT has a pretty standard fantasy beginning, so unless it's drastically different, I really don't believe it....

re: Hitman and Shadowrun Collection free on Epic - oauron
[quote]yeah, and im sure Steam was bare bones like EGS when they released too ridiculous to expect EGS to have a similar feature set from the outset [/quote] Steam was only Valve stuff at the start, but they were still pioneering things. I've been willing to give EGS time to grow, but they h...

[quote]Just need to confirm she's not damn near 40[/quote] Yeah, she had some much better pictures out there that made a lot more sense than the horrible headshot WoT picked to announce her role. But yeah, she may not look 39, but she certainly looks much older than the 22-23 that Min is to star...
