"Looter" recommendations?

Necromunda is a fairly well-reviewed non-AAA game, it should be pretty cheap now. Similarly look at Shadow Warrior 2.

The Division 2 is a looter-shooter online/MMO hybrid thing. Definitely AAA and a couple years old. Also cheap. Of course there’s also Destiny 2 in the same vein.

Warframe is already mentioned, lots of people really love that game and it’s F2P so no barrier to entry.

Thought Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands doesn’t come out until March 25.

This thread got me to reinstall Warframe. Maybe it’ll click this time.

Yeah, it’s not available yet.

My fault, I expected it to say pre-purchase on the splash ad, but I had to click into it. Sorry.

Tiny Tina has the original missions from Borderland 2 as a standalone purchasable preview of the full Tiny Tina game. At least I think that is what’s going on.

I think the game that gave me the most enjoyment in obtaining satisfying loot was the old RPG Of Might & Magic VI, which had a nice risk/reward mechanic - the graver the danger, the better the reward. So at one point near the end game I defeated 3 bosses in tough battles in a three-chambered cave and got this extremely powerful mystical crossbow… too powerful; in fact, it was so powerful that I killed the final boss of the game in .5 seconds with it and barely got to see the animation of the boss I was fighting lol (she was some kind of serpent monster-queen with big bewbs, I think, but like I said, it was just a flash… then she was dead). Well, never said it was a particularly well-balanced game (M&M VII was much better); just a satisfying one when it came to loot.

Never did get into Warframe. Grim Dawn is excellent IMHO.

The problem is Ultrazen has already played way too much Grim Dawn. He’s Grim Dawned out, you guys! He needs other options, not Grim Dawn.

I feel like Gunfire Reborn ticks some of these boxes.

Quoted for truth.

I have not played this, will check thanks!

Hmmm, I don’t think I ever played this…checking as well thanks!

I bounced off of Outriders, but haven’t tried 76 yet, will do as it’s on GP now I think, thanks!

Fair warning: I couldn’t play M&M VI when it came out because I thought it was too ugly. I was a fan of M&M 3 and 5, because they were 2d artwork, but 6 made the jump to early 3D combined with sprites, and I just couldn’t get over how ugly it looked.

With that said, maybe it’s actually more bearable now, as a retro sort of look. I know people are more tolerant of uglier games nowadays. I know I am.

I enjoyed M&M6 at release, but it did look uggo even then. I don’t find it playable now, like most early 3D games.

If anyone decides to play M&M VI: Mandate of Heaven today, be sure to find the fan-made patches that enable full mouse-look and perhaps a few other QoL enhancements, otherwise it will be pure agony to play in addition to the ugly and we don’t want both agony and ugly revisiting this old game, do we? Patches might even make it a little prettier though I played it about 10 years ago so don’t know what new things might have been brought to the game since then. Admittedly, those character portraits from digitized sources are terrible. I’m pretty sure I see both Lucy Lawless as Xena and James Brolin as Generic Fantasy Barbarian Guy there.

Nioh 2

Nioh 2

Nioh 2

Warhammer 40K inquisitor - Its sort of diablo set in the Warhammer 40K universe, with tons of interesting loot, interesting classes and a myriad of ways to play, that are all viable.

I cant believe Brian didn’t sell you on this!

Warframe is the best loot shooter right now. Good mechanics, huge world, good story, open world aspects, crafting, trading - it has it all.

Nioh 2 is a great Dark Souls clone with expanded loot chasing mechanics and a huge build variety. If you are the kind of player who mastered DS to the point that you own bosses without getting hit, Nioh 2 gives you a reason to keep grinding (loooooot).

D2 Ressurected is good old D2. It’s also getting a balance patch soon (player testing phase atm) with major buffs to forgotten builds (amazon melee, ranged barb, fire druid etc.).

Oh I thought we were just doing shooters. Yeah Inquisitor is amazing.
