The gameplay is also tight and polished. Shooting feels great, and the physics are wonderful in a fight.

One glaring issue I have so far, is the fact that they used the same voice actor that did Max Payne's voice for a different character in this one. And he doesn't seem to be able or want to distort his voice enough to make it unrecognizable. And this takes me out of the experience every time. But I'll live with it.
I just looked on Steam and it says the game doesn't release until next year. Are you playing EA or our you testing it?

I'm guessing it's an Epic exclusive for the first year.

Thanks. I forgot all about Epic.

I finally got around to playing Bard's Tale 4. Thus far, I am unimpressed.

I'm actually quite enjoying the Director's Cut. It's not perfect and has some annoyances, but for the most part, it's fun!!

I might be up for a replay of Bard's Tale Four after I finish my trilogy run. Either way, if not sometime this year, early next!

I've got the remaster trilogy installed, but other than a quick run into it to make sure it worked, haven't tried to do anything. At least it's been long enough that if I do play any of the originals, they'll be largely forgotten by now. Unlike MM3, 4, and 5, which I think are completely burned into my brain to the point I could play though them in my head and not miss a square.

I have also been playing Final Fantasy V, the GBA version. Only a couple hours in, but it's actually quit enjoyable, even if I screwed up my initial job allocations.

I was actually surprised at how much I remembered from Bard's Tale one, though that knowledge stalled on the next two games. I probably played the first one so much that I wound up committing most of it to memory!!

Good to see someone else plays the FF games. I'll likely be doing a replay of several of those later this year or early next.

I actually never played them until starting last year. I beat the first one (GBA port again), and last week started 5.

At one time I could walk through the beginner's dungeon in BT2 without light and by memory. That's been a few years now since I've played any of them though, so I'm hoping that I've forgotten most of it.

Same here! I'm loving it so far. I guess for those who liked the BioWare games of old, this game will be extremely appealing. The quest design is extremely good, and the story and dialogue are very well made as well. The only thing slightly bothering me is the lack of polish in the graphics and animation (particularly facial animations) departments, but I figure I'm getting used to it. Terrific job so far, Spiders.

Just finished BT2 and I'm now in the first world of BT3. BT2 was a bit of a slog at the end and certainly my least favourite of the trilogy, especially some of those snares.

Yup, I enjoyed the first Bard's Tale and the third much more than I did the second. At least you're over the hump now!

I think I'm finally going to give Pillars of Eternity Two a shot. I got this one back at winter time and, while I'm not the biggest fan of the first game, this one deserves a shot on it's own merits.

I've been toying around with a cool little game called Blasphemous. It's a mix between a metroidvania and dark souls, with a very unique setting and graphic style. It's very spanish inquisition with heavy religious themes. Really cool stuff.

For a quick look, Jim Sterling does a good job:

Put Blasphemous on hold, because I really felt nostalgic for a real gem that I played back in the day, and loved. Namely, Evil Islands. Such an awesome game. Too bad the russian developers at Nival Interactive never managed to get the success they deserved imo.
