@Ryuu96 so it looks like the Forge open beta may very well coincide with the launch of season 3. Which honestly, not only does it give Forge some extra time to bake for a couple more months, but that could be a huge marketing push for season 3.

Really hope they do a relaunch with Forge; Launching Forge which looks awesome, a playlist of of classic maps remade on Forge for multiplayer, a few general updates and a few new developer made maps, it's perfect timing and makes a lot of sense to attempt, Imo.

I don't know how I feel about moving Forge's open beta from September to November though, a little disappointed, I just hope the open beta is treated as basically the final product marketing wise, the same way the multiplayer was treated when it released a month early, 343 already confirmed it would be the full complete set at least.

Forge in the leaked build looks amazing with a ton of stuff already so I wonder what the hold up would be, perhaps the crashing due to using multiple textures and different lighting, such as baked in lighting, are proving harder to fix than anticipated, in which case, I would agree with delaying it cause those are two pretty vital things needed to make maps truly shine.

But I really hope it isn't being delayed due to something like, the Xbox One is struggling, Lol.

That is one that is going to have to be addressed at some point, when does 343 just ditch Xbox One support? lol it needs to happen sooner rather than later.

Ditch it for Forge.

F*ck Xbox One, Lol.

@ice What are the current teams? Who is in who? When is a European team going to smash the Americans?

Sen - Snakebite, Royal 2, Lethul, Frosty (same roster) 

Optic - Formal, APG, Lucid, Trippy (same roster since droppin Ola)

C9 - Penguin, Stellur, Eco, Bound (Bound coming from FaZe)

FaZe - Snipedown, Falcated, Renegade (from C9), Spartan (from eUnited)

eUnited - Ryanoob, Rayne, Manny (from Pioneers), Svspector (from Xset)

Pioneers - Taulek, Druk, SoulSnipe, KingNick (from eUnited)

Other teams to watch for

G1 - Bubu's new team that's been killing it lately 

G2 - recently added Barcode which was considered Australia's best player

I did this all from memory so excuse any typos :D I think we'll see Ola after S1 ends and his contract is up. I still feel like him and Mikwen will make a killer team.

Also, never for that European comment well I can see Ascend getting top 8 possibly at worlds

Suppose I'll root for Cloud9, Gamers First or Optic Gaming, I'll root for Cloud9 if the other two are out, I've got to support Bubu no matter what, although I know his team likely doesn't have a chance against Cloud9 or Optic. I'm still a fan of Optic's players but I miss Ola so I'll also support whatever team he joins unless it has players I'm not a fan of, like Faze and Sentinels, Lol.

343 paying European teams to throw their tournaments I see, disgusting corruption going on in HCS, NA have to play dirty to win.

Wait, what?



Played quite a few games recently but I didn't post a lot of mini reviews here lately. That's going to change even though I'm keeping them extra short.

Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry & Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Dry Twice

I'm combining them because they are very similar even if the second game is roughly 50% longer than the first. These are the latest games in the Larry series and are more true to the original than the 3D abonimations of the past. Tons of sexual innuendos and reasonable puzzles result in two very enjoyable games.

8/10

Nexomon

Bought this because I heard it's very similar to the Pokemon games and it's true. Quite good looking game and the story is better than whatever the Pokemon games offer. Sadly, it lacks a lot of features that even the oldest Pokemon games had (less types, no crits, just one kind of "Pokeball" (Nexotrap) etc.)

7.5/10

Nexomon Extinction

Holy crap this game is so much better than the first one. Huge improvements everywhere and as a complete package, I'd pick this over many of the early Pokemon games I've played. Story is great (there are lots of connections with the first one so it would help if you played that one first.), likeable and very funny characters, combat is improved everywhere, more content (took me 24 hours to complete the game and I barely cought any monsters and didn't max out any of them). Highly recommended.

9/10

Deponia Collection (4 games)

A game series I definitely overlooked. Point and click games with a very interesting setting and amazing characters. Dialogues are insanely funny (can't comment on the English version as I played it in German, which I usually don't but it felt appropriate considering it's a German game). The ending is a little controversial though and the 4th game came out of nowhere since it's basically over after the third game.
Sadly some of the puzzles are way over the top (some would say illogical) which resulted in me looking for hints quite a few times. Also the game can't quite keep up with the visuals which comes to no surprise as most are from the 2012-2013 era. Still rather timeless since they are all 2D games.

7.5/10

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe

Finally got to play this game and could see what the fuzz was about. It's a little different than I expected to be honest since the regular ending can be achieved in only 4 minutes. I certainly enjoyed my time but I expected the original game to have more content as I heard so many stories about all the decisions you can make. The Ultra Deluxe edition definitely added a lot to the game though. Fun game but rather short if you're not going for every single ending.

8.5/10

Shining Resonance Refrain

First off, I did not complete this game - far from it. Played it for around 5 hours but honestly I don't think I will continue. It's a port from the late PS3 era and it shows. Difficulty is all over the place. Simple mobs are very easy while every single boss can kill you (or a party member in max two hits). Your AI partners are braindead and will die during boss fights in the first two minutes. Combat is rather lame as well. SKIP!

6.5/10

PowerWash Simulator

GOTY right here (just kidding). Perfect game for watching YouTube on the side or listening to a podcast. Spent 38h to get my 1000G and yet I wouldn't quite call this a great game. It does what it promises, has lots of content but I would've been fine with shorter levels. The last one took me 4 hours to clean up.

7.5/10

Raji: An Ancient Epic Enhanced Edition

Can't really understand the meh-ish reviews for this game. Fluent combat, interesting world, great environments and a decent challenge. Glad that I finished it before it got removed from Game Pass.

8/10

Kaze and the Wild Masks

Great platformer that reminds me of the "recent" Rayman games. Great and precise gameplay and excellent level design make this a must play for platformer fans. Definitely challenging but never unfair. Story-wise there isn't much to talk about.

8.5/10

--------

tldr:

Buy Kaze and the Wild Masks, Nexomon Extinction and The Stanley Parable right now!
Also consider the others if you like the genre.

Ice knows all about it, the European teams would ring circles around the NA teams if they weren't paid off to throw matches, Smh.

Spoiler!
I'm trolling, Lol.


@ice Stop being scared of EU Halo Pro Teams.



Has anyone here been playing Infinite on a somewhat regular basis? I'm only able to play for like 2-4 hours a week, so the grind to finish my battle passes have been slow lol. Hopefully I'll be done with both battle passes within the next month or two.

I'm still really enjoying the game! God the gameplay loop is so good lol
