It was a bit of both, but yeah it didn't help.

The narrative seems to be told through "voices in your head", one seems to talk more about the character, one talks to the character and another seems to address you as the player...and they all talk to each other, having a conversation about the now and then of the game...
That, and various whispers and other effects are employed that were literally designed to show you what some mental illnesses are like...as your character is losing their sanity.

Played a bit more last night, in a *slightly* clearer frame of mind.
Was especially hard the first time as the "stage" I was playing had a lot of illusion and perspective based puzzles which I hadn't even originally picked up on...lots of walking around and exploring...I got past it last night, and a particularly savage boss fight.

Good game. I mean I'm not enjoying it quite as much as I did their last game I played "Enslaved", but it's hard not to admire this one on artistic merit too.

I don't even know what to say - though yeah, a bit more attention that I had on deck was needed to play this game.
Beautiful looking, and very weird. If you're after something truly unique, have a look. Puts you in a bit of a state though.
I'm way too competitive to play high, especially against humans. Some people say they play better high, I'm sure it's possible, but I doubt anyone gets high to 'play better'.

This one's single player.

I play better high when it's a familiar game or one I've already kind of become adept at playing...when I'm this way, I find I can almost click onto an auto-pilot mode with a lot of games.
Though mainly shooters etc, easier to immerse I find.
If it's an RPG or anything where I have to like, say...remember things...talk to people, do side quests etc? Can't do it.

Bloodstained finally showed up after 4 years. I started a thread about it back then but no one checked it out.

http://horror.com/forum/showthread.php?t=65942

I'm still waiting on all the extras though. I think Bloodstained and other games might mark the end of big video game Kickstarter projects. Honestly, they should not have happened to begin with. Too many fanboys out there who get overly hyped about being able to possibly influence projects and give out money without interest or guarantee from companies.

Some of these projects fall through and changes occur that shouldn't happen. Simple things like stuff that was supposed to be exclusive no longer is and is made available for purchase. People thought they were getting a slipcase but are now receiving sleeve cases. I'm sure in the Kickstarter terms there is probably something that lets companies off for poor management or not even finishing a project. I haven't come across many class action lawsuits because of Kickstarters gone wrong and nothing to show for the money.

Still calling items that people put money down for, basically pre-ordering items, and calling them "goodies or rewards" to most likely legally get out of producing those things if the project is poorly managed is going to stop. Same with calling people who are investing in your project simple "backers" so they don't have the power of an actual investor.

The Sinking City

So far it has started out very similar to the last Lovecraft inspired game “Call of Cthulhu”, which I honestly found rather dull getting through. Hopefully The Sinking City will be a little more action oriented.

I only sometimes gamble. You need to be very careful and enjoy even small wins and finish the game in time.
You can get bonuses here https://casinobeavers.com when making a deposit. I usually play Wazamba and Lucky Days casinos. At least there are definitely no problems with the withdrawal of money. You can also try this site. I have won many times here, even the jackpot.

Greedfall ps4

Graphics are nice, monsters are cool, overall story is interesting.

What Is NOT nice, cool or interesting are most of the quests, which mainly consists of you being an errand boy going one place to talk to this person and then going to another place to talk to another and so on. That’s what takes up far most of your time in Greedfall. You running arround on the map talking to people or fetch stuff for some. Riveting..
