    Seeing quite a few dark souls players :'3

    trying to do a limited shield use run now, using spears till i can finally get some claws. blew my chance at manniken claws, since i finished the bosses before i could get to the catacombs., but looking for the claws in the dlc.

    also, finished bloodborne with the chalice dungeons, after that, the vanilla final boss was a bit anticlimactic. but i find that with games with heavy dlc, since its balanced to add new mechanics, or add additional challenge for players that finished the main game already, beating it first tends to put you above the power curve.

    Got a bunch of stuff (that I didn't need, my back catalog is insane now HALP!!!!) during the Steam Winter Sale: Ori Definitive Edition (superbly beautiful game!!!), Bastion (another great artistic-type game).

    EDIT: Hotline Miami also.

    Also DO play Civilization 6. That game is just epic!

    EDIT2: And good lord I need to finish Skyrim. Been wanting to for ages.

    Interesting thread you started here, Spinny. I have not had any experience with anyone going off on people playing other games, and hopefully never will, though I don't doubt it happens.

    I do have Guild Wars 2 on my computer, but in the last few months the game has been freezing on me, sometimes for as long as 10 seconds. Since you can die in that game in 2 seconds, you can understand why I haven't logged in too much of late. (Tanking in GW2 is a myth, though some builds are somewhat more survivable; I guess it really depends on how you define "tanking".)

    CO occasionally freezes for a second or two (internet stuff, I imagine), but only once in a long while, never for very long. So you can guess what I've been playing online. :wink:

    Offline, I occasionally play Master of Orion 2 on my computer or Champions of Norrath on PS2. In certain situations, mainly involving certain family members, Tekken 3 can be fun; I will play that by myself occasionally. If I'm really bored, card games on computer (though usually that's at my parents' house; at home it's CO).

    The only bad thing here (though not that bad, life is tough or whatever) is that it reminded me how much I miss City of Heroes. I'd never have played CO if that game was still going. My current opinion on that is that I would have missed something good; whatever faults it has, CO is a fun game. (CoH wasn't perfect either; really, any game could be a little bit better.)

    The things I miss from COH was the extreme min maxing with inventions (my Warshade and Peacebringer both became godlike when cooldown was brought to nothing and defense/resistance was brought to insane levels) and the incarnate system. The rest of the game had not aged all that well by the end of it's life.

    Oh and I preferred that game's version of teleport and superspeed.

    EDIT: The only thing similar minmaxing-wise here is what you can do with insane levels of one stat like CON or PRE.

    The games I currently play besides CO are.



    Killer Instinct (PC Version)

    Guild Wars 2 - Main Species I play is Charr. (Display Name: Sonic the Hedgehog.5169, Main Character Rathsphere Charr Gaurdian)

    Warframe (PC Version)

    Second Life (Virtual World while not a game it's something to sit back and relax hang out with friends or shop for items for my avatar)

    The Elder Scrolls Online

    WildStar (Most Times)

    Neverwinter (Been to busy with Warframe to play it a lot)

    Perfect World International (Love the game and spent quite a lot of money on there cash shop but find most npcs to hard even at lvl 95, I am excited when the overhaul is dropped on that game, It will change the way we see PWI it's Engine Upgrade was looooong overdue. Date of the engine upgrade isnt decided yet there still working on it.)

    Star Wars the old Republic - I find the story more fun on the dlcs and gets more exciting than the base story, I had a little taste of Knights of the Fallen Empire and I am in love of the story.

    Digimon Masters Online - Despite its ups and downs I am a Major Digimon Fan.

    Marvel Heroes 2016 (Contiuned as of 2/5/2017)

    Star Trek Online (Silver Player but am LTS on CO)


    Games that I used to play Or No longer is with us anymore.

    The Matrix Online - A Game that always had a special place in my heart but I am still heart broken for its lost it was after its shut down I never got to say my good byes to most I am friends with leaving a hole in me that may never get filled.

    nIYoW7R.png

    Here is a video of what Matrix Online Offered,





    Bonus:





    City of Heroes/Villains - My most played MMO after the lost of MXO, I was a Rouge was orginally a Villain, I regret not achiving everything I wanted and missing a few things I wish I had experienced I played CO along side CoH and I loved both to death, Could not live without both in my life now it's gone all I have is CO.

    Shin Megami Tensei: IMAGINE Online - A shut down MMO that was closed due to Dev Time unable to maintain both the US and JP Version at the same time I lost all my hard work and I was on the verge to restoring and fixing up my main character beacuse I screwed up his Sharpshooter Build vary badly only to have that taken after the shut down.

    DC Universe Online - Stopped playing it, My reasons is that Cryptic Studios Restrictions are better than DCs Restrictions. But I did enjoy the game for the time.

    World of Warcraft (Trial Only) - Stopped playing due to trial ran out, I can only sub to 1 or 2 games at a time anymore it gets pricy.

    Landmark (Daybreak Games) - Cannot keep up with the upkeep at this time to play more.

    EverQuest 2 - Stopped playing for now not sure when I will play again.


    And I think thats it I believe.​​

    Heh That is if people can find me. I mostly play alone in GW2 sense I rarely interact with anyone and only have a small handful of friends who play it.​​

    I played Witcher 3. It was really excellent and deserving of all of the praise it's getting.

    - The story is badass. Easily one of the best stories for any game ever. It's easy to care about what happens with every major character. And your choices really matter a lot.
    - The world is massive and absolutely gorgeous. I upgraded my PC just to be able to play it on ultra settings. There is so much to do! It's taken me over 300 hours to clear every point of interest in the main map + DLC and it was super fun all the way.
    - The gameplay really shines on Death March as it makes being well prepared vital for every encounter. Combat takes a bit of getting used to, but once you're there it's really fun. And the slo-mo kills are highly satisfying.

    Unfortunately Witcher 3 has spoiled me for pretty much every game I've tried afterwards except for CO. What's cool is now that I'm back to CO it's still super fun. Having tried many other games, I'm happy and confident to be spending time in CO as there's not really anything like it. Was hoping for Wildstar to be the new CO, but it fell flat.

    Forgot about the Torchlight series, those are pretty good, located here on Arc.

    This times 1000% you all need to play the Torchlight games they are on most formats so theres no reason not too.

    And if you still have doubts? Me and Nepht agreed on something, case closed, try it.

    You would be surprised how much we agree on stuff and you actually remind me of myself when I first turned up on the forums in 2011. There is some actual fondness towards you happening.

    Game wise and you peeps might go **** right off. But Minecraft Super Mario edition for Wii U. Its like an open world Super Mario Bros 3 its worth a look @[email protected]

    Well, my current rotation I'm enjoying so far tends to be -
    Unreal Tournament (The First one)
    Faster Then Light (Captains Edition Mod :+1: )
    Gears Of War 3 (When My friend comes over 2 days a week, he currently doesn't have a PC for Lan so we 'Enjoy' this for now or when I feel like playing it)
    StarCraft 2 (Same as above but when my friend does have his Computer.)
    Other games I wouldn't mind playing, such as Terraria to relax with but I haven't had much motivation to play, I've also finished DOOM Campaign recently, haven't touched it since.
    Want to get to know me a bit better, Click me and take a read of My Dragon Profile Page, it's a bit dated but still relevant.

    I take this quote from a review that I agree with.

    "customisation is so linear; everyone is after the optimal dps:survivability ratio with 0 reliance on other players = autonomous gameplay... Players don't need each other anymore... which in my opinion is a bad thing."
  • reiwulfreiwulf Posts: 442 Arc User
    I only play MMOs (and sometimes old SNES/GBA games on emulators)
    I play:
    -Guild wars 2 (lately not much, onyl when they add new content and story.)
    -Elder Scrolls Online. I've liked this one a lot!
    _The secret world, this is an AMAZING MMO, I wish more people played it, VERY story driven, and much mystery and investigations! it's probably my favorite game too, also it has a present setting, which few MMOs have,
    -DC universe online, I don't play it much to be honest, but it's nice to play another superhero MMO once in a while.

    and that's pretty much it :)

    I'm more into oldschool RPGS, final fantasy 4,5,6 breath of fire 1,2 secret f mana 1,2, chrono trigger, etc...
    but I have to say Plok really looks like the oldschool SNES games, like the first games released on it.

    Yeah its nothing like those it plays like Resident Evil 1. Which if you knew the history of Resident evil 1 it actually started development out as a first person game. Also the game has been received well by actual Res fans so to those circle jerk hipsters that wanted it to fail well ...



    Final thought Doom 3 started the FP horror fad not those games anyway :P

    The aesthetic of the game reminds me too much of those games for me to be interested in it. It's fine for what it is and has its audience, but it's not the kind of game I'm looking for when I think of RE.

    Systemshock bloody good game one of my faves but thats more cerebral than the likes of Doom 3 and Res 7.

    Res 7 is not scary doesn't try to be it tries to shock but not scare. The game is pure Evil Dead its actually quite funny when people are not being murdered and some of the things that happen to Ethan and the stuff he says is just pure comedy. They even get a "groovy" in.

    >_> Also been playing a lot of Gravity Rush 2 my god that game is majestic.

    Holy yes. UT is the best. Although I do love the 2004+ versions, they are the best arena shooters ever. And if anyone says Quake I will punch you with my left ****.

    Also FTL is amazing. Also Also just feel like mentioning Rogue Legacy. That game is a masterpiece.

    Also for no reason a game I'd like to suggest to everyone? Papers, Please. That is a great game that shows you just how shitty life can be.

    Did I mention Clash of Clans? I've been playing Clash of Clans. I like poking the screen and then watching the things go plok o3o
  • I used to play Artix Entertainment games like Adventure Quest or Herosmash. After the latter got left behind to become abandonware, though, I didn't touch video games for a rather long time aside from some Sims.

    These days I tend to play action games like God Eater or Dynasty Warriors.
    The Mechanical Armageddon

    If I refer to a twin sister ingame, I'm either talking about Artisa or Atroxia Lion.
