I’ve done the same thing, genuinely terrifying :lol: I’ll send you an invite if I see you online.
I got really good at killer and survivor and kind of lost interest after that! I might jump back in at some point but i felt like I’d played out all possible scenarios and the games started feeling too tactical. Not that fun when people just run the same loops all game.

@esmufc07 how you finding ghosts so far?

Also does anyone here play dead by daylight? It’s cross platform and fun/terrifying.
Missed this sorry. I really enjoyed it in the end. A bit slow to get going and some definite flaws but definitely worth a playthough! Combat is lots of fun.

Is dead by daylight any good? Keep meaning to check it out as Limmy always talks about it and seems to love it

It’s really good fun. I think it falls down with most games in that once you progress enough levels and ability wise it becomes less fun because you end up playing with the core dedicated fan base where everyone knows every exploit and best ways to win that it becomes less fun.

I don’t think I’ve reached that level yet, I find most people don’t seem to do any of the generators? Which I find strange.

I’m finding private games with my friends more fun than anything, something satisfying about stabbing your mate and scaring the hell out of them.

That reminds me of this:

Reddit rumours are saying it might be low-key, under the radar Silent Hill game, made by Kojima...
Those rumours are nonsense. Blue Box has had a website up since 2015, promoted a previous game around that time which ended up being vapourware, released some mobile games and just because they don't have much of an online presence and their previous stuff is clearly inspired by Kojima/PT, people have gone wild.

They've made a statement

We received several emails regarding the Hideo Kojima rumor. We have no association with Hideo Kojima nor do we claim to have any association nor was it our intention to claim such a statement. We are a small group of developers working on a passionate title we wanted to work on for a long time. We have been assisting other studios in the past with their projects and we wanted to work on our very first big project. While it is true that we've been working on small projects in the past, we certainly didn't use that for marketing purposes. We hope this has clarified this matter and hope to see you all in our very first gameplay reveal of Abandoned.

it's incredibly good but probably not for everyone. There is no combat, it's all dialogue. The only person you're fighting is yourself. You basically roll dice against some of your actions at various points and getting it wrong can lower your health. And actions you take determine the way the story progresses. Not sure if that makes it more or less accessible than Divinity though, I guess more? Seeing as turn based combat can be considered a bit niche and this doesn't have it.

I'd strongly suggest looking up some gameplay videos for it. Best I can describe it is like a visual novel mixed with a CRPG.
I struggle to get into games that are overly complicated and this might look it but I found it quite easy.

It's cerebral in that sometimes two parts of your character fight against each other (like types of thoughts in his brain) but it's all part of what makes it good. When it boils down to it you've got essentially a point and click detective game where you pick options based on the percentage chance they will succeed. You can increase these chances by having good stats, or the right item on you, or the right knowledge, etc...

I've not played a game like it before tbh.
This game is amazing. Spent the last couple of hours trying to get some speed. I'm determined to befriend Cuno and have him as my dealer.

So I left ABZU mid way as it was boring as feck and have moved on to Subnautica which was the one I was really excited about from the free to play line up. And it's absolutely brilliant so far. 22 hours in and other than a few 'missions' I've mostly been getting used to the survival mechanics and building new gadgets. One of those games I can just get lost in.

Playing FF7 remake as well which is very good.

But, Subnautica :drool:

Even though it’s technically a PS4 game, Hellblade plays and looks like a next gen game still.

platinumed it at the weekend, two consecutive play throughs.

Id forgotten how good this was and the third act is just incredible stuff, almost transcends the video game platform it’s so absorbing. Headphones are a must. Really becomes incredible when you get the hellblade itself. The graphics, fighting mechanics and music really meld together.

I found it too unsettling unfortunately but do want to try it again eventually.

Subnautica is excellent. I've had to stop playing though as it was actually creeping me out big time. I'm wondering if I might have a bit of a deep sea phobia.
