@bdead: I'm just getting into the first game and came here to find a tips thread just like this one. Regarding skill points - is it wise to hold onto them until the next level up and you're able to raise the skills you want to concentrate on? This is particularly confusing to me, as hybridization seems to be encouraged, but you can't have your character be too much of a hybrid.

Any advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated!

This sounds like Von Trier-level arthouse horror. Hard pass.

I certainly have experienced this, and I think most people do. If I may ask- do you think you may be suffering from depression? I had a very rough patch the last few years that I'm just starting to emerge from - much of that depressive period was spent thinking about the cultural touchstones from my childhood and how I wish i could go back to that carefree time.

If you're feeling similar "pain," it might not hurt to talk to someone about it.

Why is multiplayer of all things a box check for people? NMS is touted as a lonely space exploration game, after all, and seeing some orb on my planet would ruin the vibe.

I've been working on Stephen King's The Dark Tower series. I'm currently on book 7/7 and hoping to finish this month.

After Herbert's Dune series, this has to be one of the toughest set of novels I've ever attempted to push through. That's not to say the series is bad, but there are definite slow spots (particularly book 4, Wizard and Glass) and it is exceedingly long with lots of detours. The series is absolutely loaded with pop culture references and the themes of fate/destiny are almost overbearing. That being said, King's signature style is present and at least keeps things interesting. The fourth wall gets broken in a way I've never experienced before, with mostly positive results. Considering the tale starts as western, you'll be very surprised at what it eventually becomes.

I probably would only recommend this series if you have a lot of free time (I've been deployed, so there's not much else to do) or if you're extremely excited for the upcoming movie.

I could go on all day about DT but I'll spare you the intimate details :) The series is very erratic in terms of quality, and I hated the reason for the world existing that King added in what I'd deem his post-accident books (5,6,7). He seemed to be exorcising some demons there, but it killed the magic for me. That said, I do hold the series in high esteem for the ambition of it, as well as a wonderful set of characters.

Not what I go to BioWare for - the world looks very inviting and pretty, but a "me, too" Destiny-like co-op shooter is a no-sale for me.

I'm interested in the Sony conference, and want to see what From and Bethesda are up to. New single-player focused IP is always good as well.

@matatat:

Bad platforming sections in non-platforming games are another sore point of mine so apparently this game is ESPECIALLY not my thing. Thanks for the reply.

I liked the game, but got really annoyed with the platforming. Half of my deaths were from falling, which may be my fault in part, but it was very frustrating at times.

Seems cool, but there is zippo buzz on this game less than a week out. I really want some form of 'Sci-Fi Souls' game, but will wait to see how some guinea pigs, er, brave early adopters fare with it.

@meteora3255: Olynyk is hated in Cleveland for his arm grab that took Kevin Love out of the '15 playoffs. I was not upset to see Olynyk get bodychecked the other night.
