some pics from the beach this weekend
so, i guess i'm a nerdmit now. i have put like 200+ hours into my steamdeck this year, and i'm now obsessed with card games lol. i have been juggling slay the spire and balatro. while i don't like the lack of instant gratification in slay, with each run, i do love the cards/trinkets you can get with each unlock.
i loved the first. i would be down for this.
Quote from: Remij on Today at 05:58:41 PMIt's a risk they take by splitting up whole games into multiple parts. 

Of course with the production values of these games being what they are, they're super expensive.. so while yes they're going to make more money selling 3 full priced games... they risk losing players between releases. 

But who knows, maybe the digital figures will make up for the 30% drop in physical.  It should still sell better than FF16.. but I think SquareEnix must have had higher hopes for the game than this currently.

I could see SquareEnix getting bought up by Sony if things continue dropping for their franchises.
oh, i was messing. i'm sure it will do fine, overall, on ps5. also, the game didn't have the ps4 userbase this time. lastly, i think a good amount of players will wait for the pc release.
Quote from: Twinblade on Today at 05:50:22 PMThe great thing about Rebirth is that they really succeeded at making the combat feel smooth and responsive in the 30 FPS graphics mode. Many other action focused games feel sluggish and unresponsive at that same framerate.

IMO there's little reason to play in performance mode given the cutbacks.
i will definitely give this a whirl when it drops in price. i've heard nothing but great things.

Quote from: Casual on Today at 03:21:28 PMBout 12-13 hours into Rebirth. Did a lot of dicking around in the Grasslands so only just getting out of the mines in terms of story progression.

Game is fantastic, what an awesome translation of the FF7 world so far. Areas are just gorgeous to look at and the OST on top makes for peak atmosphere. I wouldn't even say I have that much fondness for the original, if anything this and Remake have made me more of a fan. The combat is amazing too, especially starting with Red in your party - him and Tifa are a blast to play, the emphasis on elemental weaknesses as opposed to block/parrying makes it a lot more fast paced too.

I might be blind but I think the game looks gorgeous in performance mode. I see a lot of people complaining online, but in motion I haven't had a complaint. Games are just at that point where they're good enough visually now.
i'm sure it's fine in motion. a lot of games can be nitpicked when they are static.

Quote from: Remij on March 03, 2024, 12:44:05 AMThanks man!  7680x3200 with the dynamic res disabled and 60fps.  The game looks fucking pristine dude :love:

I've take over 250 screenshots of this game this playthrough :ben:
Damn bro :wow2: in time, I will have a nice PC. I have been building up my steam library. 
Quote from: Remij on March 02, 2024, 11:50:15 PMI was watching a stream and it's definitely.... Ubi-fied.  God though... the game really needs a PC version or a PS5 Pro right about now, because the pictures I've seen posted online look blurry as fuck.. it's terrible.  Especially after playing Remake on PC.. lmao there's no comparison.

But I'm pretty much at the end of FF7R now.  Stopped just now, right at the Rufus fight.  Lost the first time around and will have to reconfig my materia I think lol.  I forgot how incredible the cinematography is in this game.  The cutscenes are honestly phenomenal and well directed.

I've definitely been too hard on it.. I've been enjoying this playthrough. 

Gorgeous on ps5, but WOW in your pics!

will do!

i went from being a tv just a casual viewer. my gf had never seen beef or white lotus, so we've been watching those series (over the last month or so). i find i like season 2 of white lotus even more on my second viewing.

Quote from: Twinblade on March 01, 2024, 08:31:55 PMYou should give Gwent Thronebreaker a try  :smoke:

fuck yeah! i have no clue why i had never given this genre (or even the gwent game) much of a chance. this shit is addictive! i really like the gameplay loop a lot!
