KOR is nice and colorfully fantastical 

Skyrim does have third person.

If magic, mythical creatures, alchemy (potions), mythical races, fantasy weapons and armour, vampires, warewolves, ancient mythical ruins complete with history and folklore and giants that can send you into orbit with a single swipe of their giant clubs is too real, then I guess it's not for you. 

 

Personally, it's easily in my top 5 of favourite games I've ever played in my entire life.

I really like that game too. I'm not too far into it, but the gameplay mechanics are different from previous Fire Emblem games, which makes it refreshing to play.

It was originally made as an MMO but they scraped the idea to avoid issues.

 

 

 

Anybody getting Witcher 3?

Now all he needs to do now is mod Skyrim. My god the graphical improvements and add-on's is strong with that game.

It's a great game though I give you that.

Indeed it is

 

and While Skyrim is very good too, Ive played it a few times

 

the graphics are too real for my tastes, I do not like WoW but I like it's color scheme. Aion was a very pretty game, graphically it was my taste to a T! 

 

How ever Skyrim just has a very un satturated color scheme, it feels a little overly grey imo 

 

Though I'm at my core an Anime MMO guy, Dragons Nest is fun, still I like that visual style best for my RPGs. The Tales games are a good example of wonderful Rpgs! Just wish I had a PS3 to play them on >.>

Skyrim is just ok, storyline was a complete drag and uninvolving.

Yes all of Bethesda's games have that realistic color style to them. That's why I usually turn the in-game brightness all the way down which brings out the color and makes things like torches much more important. Last Elder Scrolls game I played which was naturally rich in color was TES 2 DAGGERFALL which came out about 1995 and is still very playable.

 

Games am currently playing are:

 

Company Of Heroes- The most exciting and beautiful war game I have played since Gary Grisby's STEEL PANTHERS series. I cant believe I have not played it until now even though my brother had given me the original cd version as a birthday gift years ago.

 

Hard Reset- A delicious first person shooter dunk into a futuristic world soaked in cybernetic science fiction where corporations rule in a society of consume consume consume to feel like a better person.

 

Grim Dawn early access version- Excellent high production value work bringing back that old hardcore style of DIABLO 1+2. A brutal world of non-stop nightmares.

 

Space Hulk- Dark and claustrophobic strategy game adaption of the Warhammer 40k table top game. Really delivers on the tension and combat.

Having allot of fun with Loadout and Gotham City Imposters.

 

They are both free on steam, check them out.

Recently beat Ni No Kuni. Overall I liked it, but I had some serious problems. The biggest thing to me, is I've never played a game that had such disrespect for the players intelligence. All the puzzles in the game tell you right there what the solutions are. With the magic and everything, there was a good opportunity to make puzzles that stumped you, or at the very least, that made you do a little trial and error.

 

That also extended into battles, as well. There wasn't really any point to things like status effects, or choosing your familiar type, because you needed only choose your strongest familiars, and you could just bully your way through any fights.

 

Even the story shoots low, with one of the easiest conclusions I've ever seen in a game.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It's sort of odd to see an inspirational speech that was by no means inspired, but was still able to convince the White Witch to become good. Completely idiotic.

 

And the fact that every time you get a new mode of transportation, it either blocks off areas by telling you outright they're locked or you can't go there, or by putting ungodly hard monsters in the area. It's so frustrating how much the game works to keep you from exploring.

 

The game had charm, and the core mechanics were sound, but they missed the mark on so many other areas. Even though I feel it was better made than Level 5's previous PS3 game, White Knight Chronicles, I enjoyed WKC far more.

 

If I had to rate it... I guess I'd give it a 7/10.

I was going to say this was a game marketed to kids but... YOU DO NOT get Ghibli to make a Kids game... they are too young to fan gasm over it, so that said a shame they made it so kid friendly...

I have always preferred dark souls over skyrim..liked the music in skyrim..the map arrow wasn't done properly like all Bethesda games..end up going over a waterfall to get to my goal because the map arrow sent me the wrong way!

I might peak around Dark Souls... if it goes on Sale on steam

 

btw I'm still loving every minuete of Kingdoms Or Amaluar Reckoning, I have the Teeth of Narros DLC and what ever other DLC there was, also enjoyable!

 

I'm uber sad to find out though  [again] that KAR was to be an mmo... but never was

 

Also it's time I introduce you guys to me... guilty TPS shooter 

 

It's called Avatar Star, you can customize your own avatar [for free] the below pic is not mine

 

 

My long with standing year long MMOFPS that's eaten about $200 of my money over the last 14 months or so. It's 100% NOT a pay to win game. You can take beginner weps some basic skill an destroy people... but it is a game that will eat away your time, so I drop money in exchange for hours saved [everything upgrade wise is based on RNG... chests. Get keys from Weeklies open chests for better weapons... ect... ect... ect...] 

 

Your calssic Korean F2P Shooter, I like it. Very simple controls, with some nice variation in builds. there are 3 classes, Sniper, Healer, Tank. I play as a Tank and a Healer

 

What I like most about it though is the movement, very fast paced and for me lot's of Rocket/Grenade jumping :3. I like the movement alot though, I feel it's nicely fluid, most of what you see you can get to, which is nice. Snipers like to hide and I love flying over walls and scaring the crap out of em 

 

Easy to aim kinda of game, and what's good about it Is the complexity of end game builds, it's hard enough to keep me playing for over a year. And it offers every perk of "Cash Items" to players who do not want to pay anything with Weekly Quests and Daily Sign In rewards! 

 

I give it an easy 10/10... gawd knows how much time I've sank into it... it is hosted in SEA [I don't have to much lagg issues] and if your a fan of TPS and Anime... it's pretty darn fun, and easy to grasp and hard to master. Nice learning curve imo 

 

and yes it helps to have a programmable mouse,

 

but feel free to download it and hit me up! There are currently two US players that I know of [including my self] and for the record, it's easy enough that I can listen to my High quality tunes while I game
