Quake 2 XP (with Fragger's HD Q2 Monster Skins)
Happy New Years everyone. Got AC Odyssey from the recent steam sale. Using reshade also.
Using MXAO in reshade makes a big difference
Final Fantasy XV
Enough waiting, time to try and wrap this up. Finally reached Lestellum and the plot after circling around Druscae back and forth and several side quests later which should be the first of two(?) major settlements though the second one seems mostly relegated to a few plot points and then it's off to these two open areas again until chapter 10 or 11 or so. Not downright terrible but quite disjointed and it feels kinda haphazard with interesting areas strewn all over the map but you usually can't explore them although there are a few dungeons though if you don't have the quest for these then yeah they're ending on a open, empty room until you pick up the hunt target for the area usually a higher-level late-game challenge.
Somewhere near the end game and with the Type F Princemobile upgrade there should also be the most amazing post-game dungeon, wonky platformer 3D hell!
EDIT: The game is starting to show it's age I suppose, character models are a bit rough and the environments are somewhat dated now with the "cities" mostly being visual setpieces although that is nothing new for this series.
Design wise though I still find 13 to be superior though it's the worse game of the two personally.
(This is also somewhat more open world designed, FF13 and FF13-2 are more linear one area to the next although I heard Lighting Returns is a bit of a open world title too but I still have that in the backlog for some day I think.)
Luminous Engine itself has potential though, game was released a few years back for XBox One and PS4 after all and somewhat updated for the PC release with slightly more vegetation clumps here, some higher res textures and a ton of movie files taking up the majority of the "texture" pack ha ha.
Plus some extra via shadows and such, TurfFX and some other minor tweaks though I keep most of that disabled for performance reasons.
Can't fault it too much though, dev-hell the game pretty much from my understanding.
Few more AC Odyssey before I go to sleep for the night.
A few more.
Wow, that's a fantastic looking Q2!
Yeah, been having a blast with Q2XP! Expansions are playable aswell.
Yakuza Zero (Reshade)
MechWarrior Living Legends (standalone, free, multiplayer game)
Mad at myself for not trying this years ago, it blew me away in terms of gameplay, graphics and sounds.
Resident Evil 2 Demo.
Note the light shining through the bullet holes in the door.

RESIDENT EVIL 2 REMAKE + CHEAT ENGINE FREE CAM
Love the Assassins Creed series, played them all so far. After playing through Origins and all its DLCs, I'm almost afraid of Odessey. There is sooo much to do, so complicated combinations of weapons, skills, engravings, boosts, boats etc etc. I do not know where to start, the task seems ominous. I think I'll give this one a rest for a while. Maybe until Easter break
