    It's essentially like Chivalry but with deeper and more ridiculous combat. Want to murder someone with a pan or spoons? you can do that. two pans? yep. only throw rocks? yep. Throw your shield at people like Capt America? yep.

    God damn pan users are the worst. I can never get the block timing right against them.

    PLayed A PLague Tale... Pretty good but some really frustrating sections with some lame design that have one solution and you have to attrition your way through to get it just right.

    Moved on to Hellblade - Senua's Sacrifice... Not really getting it. The pacing and combat are a bit of a chore and I am wondering is it worth sticking with.

    I really didn't like Hellblade, the combat is incredibly perfunctory and mechanical. Extremely simple puzzle section, kill a bunch of bland respawning viking guys for a while, repeat. The boss fights are more interesting. I guess it comes down to whether you think the incredibly oppressive atmosphere is cool or not, since that's its only really unique trait.

    I liked Hellblade for what it was. Like you've said - it's not super deep mechanically, but it does a good job as an atmosphere piece. For fans of walking simulators maybe?

    If it's a walking simulator than it's way better than most in the genre (barring Firewatch) imo.

    Personally I like to chuck rocks at people. Largely because there's a HEMA manuscript from 1611 that shows it as a legit tactic. But also because it pisses people off :lol:

    I mean, it's not, since it has combat and puzzles and such, but I think it has a similar appeal.

    +1 for Firewatch though. I really liked that one.

    If only the game would let me unscrew my pommel and end people rightly with it. That would be peak historical accuracy.

    ...I'm really liking Mass Effect 3 so far! It's pretty much just like you said, there's a little more to the level-up system than ME2 but it isn't clunky or complicated either. I'm not super far in, but I do like the characters, and it just feels good to be back on the Normandy hah! Unfortunately I'm playing it on PS3 and don't have access to any online, but I assume it is probably pretty cool--being able to roll is a nice new feature, and using the omni tool as a stabby stabby sword as well.

    This one time, I based my tactics around boarding and killing the crew. My thought was, if the crew is dead, then it will be easy to finish off the ship..appareantly it has an auto pilot..there goes that tactic!

    The only thing that worked for me was having an engi crew and constantly spamming emps and missiles.

    This is timely as I just installed FTL after having in my list of games for years.

    Several tactics work, but you got to have luck troughout the game on your side.
    Lots of lasers to take down shields, boarding crews to disable the boss' weapons or a big flak gun to do random damage..

    I got into Control in my second long play session, it’s cool. I still don’t really like the Silent Hill levels of awkward in all the dialogue and cutscenes, but I now like the atmosphere and just unlocking sections of the map.
    I sure hate those enemies that go invisible and then reappear for a second and hit you for half of your life bar!!
