Thanks W8 and Slash. Happy to report that Act V of Diablo III has a very Bloodborne-feel to it. So until Bloodborne appears on PC (if ever) this will do :)

Finished Resident Evil: Village tonight after a 3 hour long finale session  \m/

Loved every minute of it. Best game I have played in a long time.

Miranda, below, the arch enemy...didn't quite 'take what was due':

It says about 13 hours there but Steam says about 21 hours. I think Steam is correct.

I used to know a Miranda that wasn't nearly that pretty. So, the price of the game is worth it for 21 hours?

Congrats on the finish. Haven't played an RE game since #5, and didn't think that was true to the RE theme. This on looks more true to form, maybe the last one also. Holidays sales coming up, see what the discount bring.

Well there are cutscenes aplenty for the finale, but they are well done and didnít get on my nerves.

I picked up Village for ~30.00, so for me personally it was totally worth it.

Obviously the game is on rails, but that didnít bother me. I loved every second of itÖvery well done horror/survival game, and I think even JH would love the weapons and weapon modeling. Lots to customize, really fun.

Well I'll be darned...I actually finished a game, been a long time since I did. The original Mass Effect from 2007.  Great game with an epic unfolding story.

Congrats!  Unfortunately, story-wise the series goes downhill from there, whereas the gameplay improves with each sequel.

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

How many hours did that take, Rayfer?

Not sure, I had a number of starts and mis-starts with different character types before settling on the one I played through with.  Probably about 25 hours, and that includes doing about 1/2 of the side quests as well as the main quest line.

Disappointed to hear that. The combat was ok, a bit repetitive but fun....but it was the story that really made the game.  If I see #2 on sale cheap I'll probably get it anyway.

Congrats on the win Rayfer.  :clap:    A win is a win no matter how long it takes. I'm still working on beating Pong. One of these days.....
