Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

Has anyone played The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante? I picked it up today and it's fantastic.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

it's great, I just found it myself

got my ass handed to me on my first playthrough when I tried to be a fair judge, painted myself into a corner and then ran out of lives

now on my second weighing my options more carefully it definitely pays to be cunning in this game

Ugh, I think I'm in the same boat. I'm in my first year and had to have father bail me out already.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

from what I understand the highborn path is the most difficult one to get to a "good" ending which sort of makes sense since you have to juggle more responsibilities same as irl

no matter which choice I made it seemed like it would always piss someone off

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

I'm pretty sure my time as a mod has skewed my version of what endings are "good" or not. "Why won't these plebs just follow the poor noble's orders?"

Spoiler:


I'll stop spamming the thread so those who aren't interested don't need to read this stuff. Highly recommend this game though! I'd probably even recommend it to people who don't play games and just like to read. It is incredibly well done.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

I normally don't even play these type of games but heard rave reviews gave it a shot and was instantly hooked

my only complaint is it's a bit too short, hopefully they'll make another one with a larger decision tree

they are definitely onto something here

Disco Elysium is completely different, but has an amazing decision tree system imo. You might want to check that out, it's also fantastic.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

Life and Suffering seems pretty intriguing will give it a go.

What are the thoughts on DE Final Cut? I got Disco a few years ago got about halfway through enjoying it but moved on. Does it make sense to just get the new version and start a new character?

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

BTW, The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante does have a steam demo. It lets you play the first two chapters.

Is playing with the stats/effects on considered cheating? It seems successfully completing the game without them would be exceedingly difficult.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

I've only played the Final Cut version, so can't comment. Sorry.

I think the game recommends you play with the stats/effects on. It's difficult enough to get the outcomes you want with them on, I can't imagine playing without them.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

Interesting you guys are arguing for stats/effects on, I've read otherwise.

Is it a 100% complete neurosis thing with you guys or do you think it's genuinely needed?

I'm just starting but I've read to turn it off and "don't expect to win, just enjoy the experience" if that makes sense to anyone playing it

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

My experience was that my first run it didn't really matter because I didn't have a good enough grasp of the mechanics anyways. After that, it is possible to get to late game and not have the necessary stats to continue, so it's not really worth the risk, and I was intending to do several playthroughs anyways. I also find it really interesting to see what the devs thought a particular choice would mean as far as character development.

I don't see turning it off boosting the experience much, except for perhaps the first time.

wow, Control for free on Epic, might be the best ratio of profile/length since premiere ever

I was waiting for a decent sale to get it, -100% seems like a good deal

Is Control any good? Think I already got it from PS plus as well.

I honestly loved the Sir Bronte demo. Was really blown away so here's to hoping it's an actual discount.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

Sir Brante is an amazing game that I probably never would've played if it hadn't been recommended ITT. Thanks


Also - Control has been on Game Pass for months already so ya'll could've gotten it there ages ago instead of sucking up to the cancer that is egs.

Yeah guys, you could have paid for the game instead of getting it for free. Noobs.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

Game pass for pc is basically free considering how many quality games you get there.

If you play a lot of games and are not on game pass, you're most likely giving away money.

But sure - sitting around waiting for epic to give them away for free eventually is an option too.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

Iíve taken a ton of free epic games people have posted itt. Donít rmbr ever playing a game on epic game launcher. All the best ones I was interested in playing I already owned on steam. Please continue posting the good giveaways.

Game pass seems like really good value at $9.99/month, thanks for the reminder. Iím gonna do the 3 months for $1 now.

Lol, I’m just being a punk. Gamepass is obviously a great deal for most. It just doesn’t matter to me because I basically play the same 3 games over and over. “Sitting around waiting” for free stuff isn’t a task at all. Hell, I probably won’t play these free games either.

Re: Let's talk about Stream and buy mountains of games

Yea, no worries - me too. I shouldn't have included the dig at egs as I have had quite enough of that debate

I mainly wanted to sing the praises of game pass which I find such ridiculously good value that I'm not sure why/how they can offer it
