We're coming up on the 11th anniversary of a game that released on 11/11/11, so I think it's finally time to play and beat Skyrim.
I'm on the cusp of this problem at the moment. Half of my hardware has arrived while I wait for the other half to be released and ship so now I'm stuck in this conundrum of "should I finally load up something brand new and fancy to see the hardware shine in all its glory or keep on my backlog?".Oh boy, new PC has me installing and playing little bits and pieces of a bunch of "newer" games, which has stalled out any "progress"
OOO was discontinued after it was merged with FCOM. I helped test the FCOM mods and added numerous things with the help of CorePC and dev_akm. Sotobrastos kinda disappeared after OOO was completed so it was merged into one massive overhaul mod with MMM (Martigen's Monster Mod), Fransisco's weapon overhaul and Oblivion Convergence. If you were willing to go the lengths for OOO, I HIGHLY recommend you look into upgrading to FCOM. It might look like a complete hot mess (unless they've finally merged everything into one neat installer) but the end product is well worth the effort.
Thanks, I'll give that mod a go no doubt. The video is amazing, hope the mod as it currently is over on nexus mods is up to it. But soon find out next playthrough.OOO was discontinued after it was merged with FCOM. I helped test the FCOM mods and added numerous things with the help of CorePC and dev_akm.

Here's the official trailer that I uploaded to Youtube many many moons ago though the link I had in the description is no longer working. I'm sure you can find the resources by just Googling FCOM Convergence.
- Everytime I read about The Pathfinder games I get a feeling like I should add them to my wishlist right up to the part where I see the game is 80-120 hours long and I immediately lose all interest. That's just too much goddamn game.finished pathfinder: wrath of the righteous.
HOLY HELL this game was big. like, goddamn.127hrs. and i skipped a major portion of the game itself (crusade mode)!
what i liked about it:
-great, interesting companions + associated quests
-tons of voice acting
-mythic progression (eventually) feels super cool.
-interesting locations and NPCs to interact with
-devs offer lots of customization of your campaign rules
-one mythic path in particular (aeon) offers some extremely interesting powers and storyline interactions that really make you feel like a mythic being.
what i disliked
-tons of difficulty spikes and stat checking, even (and especially) in the beginning when the party size is small. be prepared to press F5 and F8. A LOT. unless you're a god at the game
-the game is fucking huge. crusade mode is a game within a game. i found it way too tedious, and turned it on automatic (plus side of the rules customization)
-ambush fights when traveling can be totally overpowered relative to your party level in the beginning
-completing the mythic progression happens way too late in the game
-for some classes or builds, you need to already know what's in the game (like, do i want to use a particular weapon? some weapons have way more options than others)
resurrection costing resources
what would i rate it? probably an 8.5/10. the gameplay is overall quite fun, the story is interesting and has many different ways of playing out. my biggest complaint is the difficult spiking out of everything. it's so uneven, and it can be extremely frustrating when you feel like you're doing well and then this new boss or monster pops up out of nowhere and utterly wrecks your party. it even happens late in the game, when your character is nearly god-tier status.
if you have the ability to sink 100+ hrs into an RPG, Wrath of the Righteous might just scratch your itch for isometric RPG goodness.\
Hades to me, was very similar to how Hollow Knight consumed my life. I also did not hear about a sequel so now I might have to go replay Hades again.Ok given the announce of Hades 2, I've decided to fire up Hades.
Core gameplay is very solid, but its actually not grabbing me with the characters and story the way Supergiant's earlier games have.
Then again I'm only a couple hours in, and SG games unfold in their due time so I'll keep plugging away.
-Nice, it's actually a really cool feature with some pretty nifty stats.Steam has this new feature called "Replay 2022" which gives you a nice breakdown of the games you've played this year.
In the client on the store click on "News & Noteworthy", then "Steam Replay 2022".
damn dude! here's mine:
Pity this doesn't include my WoW time. Previous years would be impressive if Dwarf Fortress had been on there. It just came out and it was 4% of my 2022 play time.
