#488306 Cappy's Minifig Menagerie

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 19 February 2019 - 07:58 AM

Awesome stuff, Cappy! All of it looks great - the armies, Adrianya - and your fully armored sigfig looks downright badass.

 

BTW, that berserker's chest decal was from a weird commission I got, and then included in the Patreon packages, but it works great for that purpose! :lol:

#488290 Scorp's RPG Corner - Pathfinder: Kingmaker is here

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 14 February 2019 - 06:19 PM

So, this is awesome: Obisidian is adding a TURN-BASED MODE to Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire! I knew there was a reason I've waited so long to play it! :lol: It's currently in beta: https://eternity.obs...based-mode-beta

 

Some deets:

 

They are probably doing this in preparation for the console release. It's great news to me, since despite my undying love for Baldur's Gate, I never found the combat in PoE to be half as fun. In fact, it always felt like a confusing mess. But all of my favorite of the Kickstarter RPG's (Shadowrun, Banner Saga, Divinity: Original Sin) have been turn-based, so maybe this will make POE2 more fun.

 

Speaking of Baldur's Gate, another recent news item is that Beamdong will be bringing their Baldur's Gate (1&2) and Neverwinter Nights "Enhanced" Editions to consoles. I couldn't care less, but there it is.

 

Also here's an Outer Worlds video:

 

Might as well toss a Kingdom Come: Deliverance one up here too (language warning):

#488275 The New! HALO Thread - Hosted by Spark

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 11 February 2019 - 08:07 AM

Also Halo 3 is a really nice-looking game that holds up really well in the Master Chief Collection. The specific shaders they use on the various metallic surfaces have a great look to them

I've always loved that about Halo 3 - just the look of the Spartan armor and the metal surfaces and vehicles and everything. They had this really great, sleek look that's aged amazingly well over the years. Much better than the overly-detailed, gaudy stuff in the later games.

Anyway, I played Halo you guise and I thought it was pretty good. I think I enjoyed the first game the most, now that all's said and done. Something about the gameplay balance, the way the guns felt, the general 'new'ness of fighting all the Covenant enemies for the first time just spoke to me. 1 > 3 > 2 for me.

You came to the right conclusion.


#488223 WG Weekly Comic (and other updates)

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 28 January 2019 - 10:18 AM

SURPRISE!

 

chapter06_page17.jpg

 

I don't know why I elected to take a break from the comic right before the last page of the chapter, but, well, here it finally is. :P

 

I'm not sure how things will continue from here. The comic simply takes too long. I feel like I'll never finish telling my story, and I want to tell it! So I may finish it in a heavily illustrated novel format instead (I've been writing one since Wulfgard first started). In the meantime, I may post a different type of comic (Lego?) on the webcomic site.

 

Either way, I'm also planning to publish a finalized version of this chapter of the Wulfgard comic - with improved art throughout - via Comixology some time in the coming months (previous chapters are already available there). So keep an eye out!

These turned out even better than I expected! Awesome horde!




#488169 What Are You Currently Playing?

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 04 January 2019 - 01:31 PM

Games I got for Christmas and thoughts:

 

Red Dead Redemption II: Surprise surprise, it turns out Ocelot's posts already summed it up better than I could. :P Big, beautiful, immaculately detailed game - a work of art, really - that is tragically quite boring to play. I don't think I've ever played a slower game in my life, and it's amazingly linear.

 

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: At least I think that's the right title. Can't keep them straight. How come no one uses numbers anymore? Anyway, I still vastly prefer sexy stone-cold badass Lara Croft from the old games to the little (literally - she's so small!) girl-next-door reboot version, but what can you do. Game seems alright so far - at least it's not set in the snow like the last one. Jungle > snow. Also, I always thought they were turning Lara into Katniss from Hunger Games, but it turns out they were actually turning her into straight-up John Rambo this whole time. In addition to self-treating horrible wounds, she gets covered in mud and stabs people in the throat with ruthless violence. There's even a trophy that references First Blood. But I just have one question: can we please get a game without Jonah in it? He's the most boring block-of-wood "character" of all time and a terrible sidekick. Lara shouldn't have a recurring sidekick anyway. She's a solo act.

 

Monster Hunter World: I considered buying this for a long time since it ticks a bunch of my usual boxes and I loved Dragon's Dogma, but I was massively turned off by the whole anime-steampunk vibe. Finally got it when I heard they would be putting Geralt in the game, because yeah I'm that bad. The game started off okay, but by the first real mission I was already bored. I wailed away on the first boss for what felt like hours to no avail - I never managed to defeat him. I guess my damage numbers weren't big enough to offset his self-healing numbers, or I wasn't doing something right. Maybe I should try a weapon other than the awesome pet-beetle-staff, but I don't want to do that. I'm not sure I'm a big fan of what seems to be a Destiny style "do a mission and then return to the hub, rinse and repeat forever" formula. From the name I was expecting something a bit more, well, open world. Maybe one of these days I'll give it another try...

^Thanks, man! :D It's really great to hear that. I'm somewhat insecure about my art, lol - never really feel like it's quite up to snuff. Always trying to improve. Your commissions have been a lot of fun, and good practice!

 

Oh! And I don't think I ever posted this, which I drew for Wolfy's birthday about a month ago (drawn with ink & marker):
