@  xcrash1998 : (21 September 2018 - 05:46 PM) I like games that actually reward you for reaching more difficult objectives.
A good example would be the golden ballon in Super Mario Oddisey it more like a trophy and less like an in game side note of what you did.
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:13 AM) but like yeah I get more trophies/achievements in games that I just happened to play more bcuz the game itself was fun or w/e and it's like oh ok i also will get these things just through doing the stuff i wanted to do anyway, that's cool i guess lol
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:08 AM) like they don't rly hurt but they aren't something of particular value, it's kinda like a fancy alert with a title that tells u u did a thing, it's not bad but im not rly one to go out of my way to obtain the validation of a video game through something that can usually just be done via spending enough time/effort on it

(getting to like the top X% of a competitive multiplayer game or smth would be a diff story, but in that case i wouldn't even want an achievement, i feel like just getting there should feel rewarding in itself, so... yeah, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:07 AM) yeah I'm not a trophy/achievement guy lol
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:35 PM) That's just not incentive enough for me, man.
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:34 PM) Plus with modern gaming a lot of the time the most you can hope for if you get all the collectibles is a trophy/achievement. Which I suppose is valuable to some people, but it's not gonna add anything to the game whatsoever.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:58 PM) like yeah sidequests with an actual crafted scenario to them, post-game dungeons that aren't TOO much grinding/rehashed content, etc. are cool
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:57 PM) yeah I only like completionist stuff if it's like meaningful content/not super grindy but usually at some point it becomes kind of annoying so meh
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:01 AM) Gotta love unforgivingly difficult super bosses. (Looking at you, Lingering Will.)
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:00 AM) I cannot do the whole collectible thing. It always feel so tedious. Sidequests and EX dungeons are always fun though.
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:56 AM) So thats perfect for me
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:55 AM) I am rather obsessed with completing on 100% unless it is completely unreasonable to do so
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:51 AM) if they ever make a sequel/spiritual successor or the like at the very least it should have my attention, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:50 AM) so yeah, great, great game overall, I even bought the expansion and played the heck out of that too because it was so much fun. Think I ended up almost 100%ing it (basically fully explored the map IIRC, not sure I did everything but at the very least I should have gotten pretty close).

and I'm not really a completionist either, so again... just speaks volumes about how fun the game was IMO.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:48 AM) Awesome gameplay, sweet enemies, an overall interesting premise and plot along with some solid writing, even the soundtrack was decent for a Western game, lol... but of course, the VISUALS. whew. the game looks soooo good. couldn't help but take pictures even though I don't usually consider myself that kinda guy, lol. the environments and hyper-realistic look are just so visually appealing I was often kinda mesmerized, similar to how I felt with Xenoblade X.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) I'm surprised to have finally found some other people who have played and liked that game though. I was excited for Horizon: Zero Dawn and got it at launch and ended up basically binging it, IIRC even putting P5 on hold for a bit, because it was just so much fun.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) ouch @ potential april fools lol
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:34 AM) Still an excellent game. One of the more interesting stories I've come across in a game, especially an open-world one, and some pretty solid characters and worldbuilding. The gameplay is fun and works really, really well in the setting, too.
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:31 AM) Although that article is from April 1st and my google searches are not revealing any other evidence of a PC release...
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:29 AM) Ah yes! I just played that game this past summer with my friends (who have a PS4) and it really was great! I'm really glad it's coming to PC so I can have it myself, and also because I've got some PS-less friends who would really enjoy it.

Bit of a random topic for all your daily chat!

Day was pretty good, went into City on the train with my friends. Wandered aimlessly for hours, laughed for most of the day. Sun beamed down for hours so we got quite lucky. Bought 2 cheap footballs and kicked them for ages in the middle of Eyre Square, many disgrumbled people later and we managed to lose both of them...

Bought new CD and friend a birthday present, pretended to care about the Lisbon referendum (European Union thing, Ireland is rebelling xD) Gave the "Vote No" pamphlet to one of the people handing out "Vote Yes" ones. Hilarity ensued.
Gave Fruit pastilles instead of money to buskers as I had spent the last of it on said fruit pastilles

So an eventful (if pointless) day, How was yours?

My day consisted of a volleyball tournament, and we failed miserably due to us being more individual players than a team, and only three of us actually want to win while the rest doesn't really give a crap and just wants to have a nice time... which makes me wonder why they play at this level...

Oh yeah, and I heard I'm going to train seven hours a week from now on, rather than five. That's pretty sweet, but it gets even better - because of it, and me playing at a fairly high level, I have to do less homework : )

^Sounds interesting

I have not had this much free time since a week before summer, haha. It's like the 1st day where I'm kinda not busy, although I DO have stuff to do. tongue.gif

Not really eventful in my case either, did lots of spriting, animating, posting, played Mage Girl's Gorilla Gadek hack, etc.

Did homework, had to help out my family on the coast, used their internet (and still am).

Not that bad, but not being at home isn't exactly brilliant.

Just pondering in what to do for tomorrow sadly........Other then that I'm going to clear most of my RPGs with my PS3 and my monitor since I have no tv that means less stuff for me to worry about when I get off work.

Myself. Just some basic stuff. Plus, no one knew Html and Css out of the people online.

^Liar.

School was good today, Wednesday is not the best of days subject wise, but not the worst. Study was epicly hilarious, I owe Sherlock a few punches after that.

Now, have to write an 8 page essay on W.B Yeats for monday, the most biased poet I've ever read...

It has been all right, I have received my Biology test grade this morning. I could have done better, however.

But, I also have received my Spanish II quiz back, and I did very well. =)
