Do it. Would it be your first Souls type game?

Just be prepared to see the 'You Died' screen a lot. Almost 95 hours in and there is still much to explore, bosses to kill, story to progress. I would consider it more accessible than Dark Souls if one hasn't played a Souls game before.

The storyline is there, but not "required" to move forward so much, so you can do that as quick or slow as you want. the world is pretty much there to explore however you want otherwise which is nice.

I will say there is hardly any guidance at all so that can be a little frustrating at times. Google has become my best friend at a few points while playing, but overall it is a gorgeous world.

I will say the messaging system is pretty cool. Nothing better than walking up into a cave and having a message from some other player saying "it's a trap, look left" It takes a little getting used to, but I've found it easy enough to use or ignore depending on my mood.
Great you're enjoying it. The story has often been rather cryptic in Souls games, much of the lore is found on item descriptions.
Definitely found looking up a few things through my travels. Messaging was like this in the other games, rather helpful. 'It's a trap'

Since Diablo II Resurrection is lowered at prices... anyone had played this already or is it just a waste of money compared to D3 (which I have fully played until the last season)?

Thanks for the heads up on the discount, would get it but im actually enjoying Lost Ark which from what I understand is a more 2022 friendly way to play an ARPG. Still super grindy though. I didn't get into D2 when it first came out i think I'm gonna wait till i might actually have time to play it

I'd played D2 as it releases back into the mid 90s. Not sure if its worth the money just to play an graphical updated game for nothing but own pleasure.
Actually Im considering waiting for D4, whenever this may come...

Assassin's Creed: Origins

I played the OG AC games up untill AC Unity but imo the new AC games have nothing to do with the AC franchise. Still I really like Origins, not as an AC, but as a game in general.

I came into the AC world late, so I didn't get hooked on the original franchise, but I do see what people mean when they say this. I think what I enjoy about AC games the most is the freedom and combat options. Not a lot of games allow you to be stealthy or clear out an entire compound silently without being noticed. It's a fun challenge sometimes.

The real world locations are fun also. I was playing Origins when I found out I was going to Egypt in real life for a mission. I pulled me into the game so much more.

I recently built a sim racing rig, got VR for it, bought a few more new games that will work with the sim and VR, yet I can't seem to pull myself away from Space Engineers. I swear every day I think of new ways to build stuff and then I can't wait to get home and try it.

I'm currently Playing lost ark on the mari server, it has great combat but feels grindy. Never really played a serious mmo before but I hear this is the norm. I also play hearthstone battlegrounds.

Taking a break from Warcraft after getting back into it just before Shadowlands. I am trying to find a game that is just as fun that my older PC can actually run. I really don't want to buy a $500+ video etc etc. I chased performance way too many times in the past and blew a ton of money just so I could play the next $60 game. So far no luck yet.

Currently switching between wwe2k22 and Townsmen which is a VR game.

Nothing new with the wwe game really still the same mindless fun from 20 years ago or whenever they first launched thesethings. Townsmen is rts style builder vr game, it`s quite engaging but does lack excitemnet imo.

Found the post and thought I would comment on this....

LOL is built on Dota forum. PenDragon stole community's work on heroes and designs and game suggestions and came up this LOL with Ginsoo. Both of them are liers and no longer welcome by Dota funs. I don't think they were invited in many developer's events, either.

So if you play LOL you are playing Dota's copycat. Period.

HoN is introduced at 2011-2012 I believe. It's the middle work between Dota and Dota2 by Iceforg. Then the publisher cut a deal with him after some discussions on the future of the game on keeping Dota heroes. Then Icefrog went to Valve to build Dota2.

Recently, prior to the Covid thing, Tencent, which is Riot (LOL) parent company bought HoN.

I would say HoN is dead.

I played thousands of games in Dota, HoN then Dota2. Spent like tens of thousands of hours on them. Then I spent like 5000 hours on Diablo III.

Nothing beats Dota in competitive gaming.

I've played all of the diablo games and I'd have to say Diablo 2 is by far the best Diablo game.

Diablo 3 is bad in comparison. D2 is way harder.

I mentioned this before, but I've been immersed in DCS, specifically with the recently released AH-64D Apache module...and I'm using it exclusively in VR (HP Reverb G2 headset).

It's absolutely incredible to be flying around, using the helmet mounted eye sight targeting system for the 30mm gun. Where you look, it shoots. It's hard to describe until you experience it in VR!

DCS is free to play, but how many air craft are available in the base game? I can justify dropping $65 to get the AH-64D module since the base game is free, but paying that price over and over for other aircraft would get expensive real fast.

The trick is to wait for their frequent sales....if a module has been out for over a year, you often see 50% off. Recently released such as the Hind or Apache will get 30% off.

Also, when they announce a new module, it will go on sale as "Early Access" before it is actually released and you get a good discount if you pre-purchase.

On the day it is released, it will still be considered Early Access, meaning not all of the features are enabled quite yet but you still get a discount, but slightly less than if you had bought it pre-release.

DSC is free to play, but you don't get much of anything with the free download. Start by buying the Flaming Cliffs base during a sale - that comes with a lot of aircraft to start. Then, add modules at your own pace during subsequent sales.

Wish they had just developed this game for PC as it was meant to be, had caused much less problems for sure.
