What games have you played recently?

Which is fine, but it makes it uninteresting to me

Also, I really question a game whose designers specifically built a genitalia size option into the game.

That’s… kind of creepy?

As a sidenote, I loved Wasteland 3. I love any game that is actively trying to corrupt me and turn me into a villain. That has been one of the only two "apocalypse game experience"s that made me genuinely understand how good people can turn bad in Mad Max wastelands…

Plus! When you actually clean up Colorado and become the new law enforcement agency you get the full cop-RP experience bc everyone lowkey hates you

I thoroughly enjoyed both Pillars games on multiple playthroughs but just haven’t been able to get into Baldur’s 3. Tyranny is a good one as well, as long as you don’t mind that you’re one of the bad guys and your associates are worse.

IIRC it really doesn’t effect anything ingame, so it’s just a personal preference thing.

I really enjoyed Wasteland 3, but I got near the end and had to deal with some big boss that I couldn’t pass (it’s been too long, I don’t remember what) and I tried over and over and finally gave up because there was also no real way for me to level up anymore or anything.

Doesn’t that make it creepier though? “We’re going to make it so you can have a guy with a huge dingus if you want. Or a microscopic one. It has no effect on gameplay whatsoever, but we’ve spent time and effort putting it into the game for you anyway.”

Tyranny is great for multiple playthroughs as well because of all the different paths to completing the game. It also has my favorite magic management system of any of the wizard-y RPGs so if you’re into that sort of thing.

I mean, your character wears underwear as a default so it shouldn’t be noticeable unless you seek it out. I guess they wanted to give players plenty of choices.

I’m sorry, that also makes it creepy to me.

To be clear, I’m not talking about the players here. What I’m talking about is that someone in that company decided to spend money and time and effort on a pointless “feature” which enables you to change the size of your character’s junk and it’s creepy.

I kinda understand the logic, but I think it’s kind of appealing to the lowest common denominator or grossly, grossly over discussed in every single review I’ve penned through. I’m not even going to aim for the low hanging fruit (har har) here and claim it’s for perverts. I don’t think that’s totally true (it just super helped the modding community).

There are a few universal gag tropes: the frustrated DM. The mage who shoots magic missiles at the darkness, and finally the character that rolls to seduce every encounter.

Congrats to that exactly one type of player, here is your game

I let Raedric keep his wretched life and lynched his hobo brother out in the countryside and I kind of regret it…

Is this like the BIG-TRUCK thing? If you enhance your characters ‘junk’ you’re compensating? :woman_shrugging:

Who knows? I seem to remember a game a long time ago (it might have even been a Tomb Raider game?) where it got out that there was a way to change a female character’s breast size. There was a big outcry.

I guess they avoided calls of sexism by making this ‘size’ thing apply to both male and female genitalia in BG3, but it’s still really freakin’ creepy if you ask me.

Agree!

This is a great example of what I was whining about from a company that I used to adore
