I hope AMD and Intel release their new GPU's around Christmas time, so Lisa Su can tell Raja that they "Fleeced Navi's Dad".  :chinscratch:

Just thinking today -

There have been some awesome vampire games (Redemption and Bloodlines obviously, but also classics like the Castlevania franchise).

There have been some awesome stealth/ninja games (Dishonored, Thief, Tenchu series on PS, early MGS).

But there has not been a single awesome werewolf game. WTF?!!

Four years later and still no actually good werewolf game out there. I am hoping Werewolf the Apocalypse game turns out amazing but we have had no news for I believe two years, which is disappointing. Still hoping though as I love the Werewolf the Apocalypse lore.

One was made around 1995, but only a sega genesis demo was left. Another one was made in 2000 for pc but only some cinematics an a gameplay video are left

Which is actually quite interesting, why are there no werewolf role-playing video games?

I know people often recommend playing a werewolf in Skyrim, which is a brilliant game but it is not a werewolf focused game in any shape or form. Hell, even vampires got more love in Skyrim through the Dawnguard DLC.

At least there is a game where you can be one among the other things.

I really loved in Arcanum the extended dimension of the world by only programming the main areas and leaving the whole rest as a really extended random generated world which you can travel in using a travelling mode like the classic Indiana Jones flying montage (remember the whole trip is seen in a few seconds as a red line on a map?).

All this was to explain I really love one thing like this but in a 3D world and, most importantly, with the possibility to travel, or even better flying, at high speeds.

Bit too tipsy to look for gaming thread, but I thought this could go to the random thought thread.

I recently bought Nintendo Switch Lite because I found the price appealing and I might have to leave my place for the weekends so there is rarely a change to play on pc or such.
That and the fact that being 35 I finally start to understand the concept of "gaming in most relaxed positions". I love the fact that I can go on my bed if I feel like it and play there.

I've also found out that I have rediscovered my love for Nintendo and Japanese gaming. It feels so fresh after the exposure to western gaming design for all these years now.

But what I mostly find weird is that I have felt kind of gloomy and moody and doomy, but I can't stand any dark games. Bring me that fucking zelda and super mario! My life is dark enough and I don't need that shit in my video games.

Breath of the wild was damn amazing!

Random confessions:
- never played any Super Mario
- don't even know what kind of game is Zelda (rpg, action, point n click?)
- I love Arcanum but hate Fallout
- I think Uwe Boll had potential which he wasted it
- the Marvel Cinematic Universe is overrated crap, bad as the Star Wars movies Disney made

That's not an opinion to be ashamed about, it's a fact

To which many people are completely blind to xD !

Also, I find it amazing you hate Fallout and love Arcanum... which is odd considering Arcanum is my favorite game of all time. I do enjoy Fallout though because the template for my favorite was clearly there.

"Dear Obsidian: Please buy the Arcanum IP and make a new one"

That would be a great start.

Good Kerghan, can't we just have one CRPG developing company without issues ? First Bioware and now Obsidian too :'( ?
