  • Fallout 76 is on gamepass for the PC.. It's a bit **** tbh, not enough people/npcs to murder... Also, getting upgrades for weapons etc seems to be taking forever. But hey, it's more victims for me.
    So far, so meh :)

    Fallout 76 is literally the only Fallout I’ve never had the slightest bit of interest in, and I even gave Brotherhood of Steel a go, and that’s not spoke of very highly even in comparison to Fallout 1 and 2. If Bethesda had’ even just delayed the launch ever so slightly to polish up the game a bit, and they hadn’t have had all that drama with the collectors edition, things could have been so much different.

    I'll never play it even if it was given away free!

    You're wise not to.. It's shite!

  • I bought Fallout 76 on sale for a tenner, before the Wastelanders update was released (it's much more expensive again now). It's not as bad as people make it out to be, but it's not great. It is better now with the Wastelanders DLC though.
  • I'll stick to FO3/New Vegas & FO4.

  • I ran a trial on ESO last night for the first time ever with 11 other people, it was actually a damn good laugh.

    Just this second completed TLOU2. Have to agree with GC - the story is fab and it really is an instant classic. So much of it leaves a sour taste in the mouth, but the fact that is entirely deliberate makes some of it quite astonishing when you think back on it.

    Definitely in my top ten games I've ever played. It's not as gob smacking as the original but it's not far off. So much of that story is going to play on my mind over the next few days. Gonna have to go through it all again.

    It's the polar opposite to the theme of the originals love and redemption. This is all about hate, and I mean true hate, and loss.

    Gustavo Santaolalla's music is truly astonishing again. And during the credits Ellie and Joel sing a beautiful song (takes a while to get to though).

  • Oh man....I've been playing ESO all day, and I mean all day....I'm beginning to think I need to unplug for a bit....maybe once the Summerset Event is finished I'll go ride my bike around the neighbourhood or something...

    Nice! Really glad enjoyed it. It does definitely leave a sour taste in the mouth, but like you say, that's all intentional. It really is a fantastic bit of writing, isn't it? :)

    I have to say though, as amazing as both TLOU games are and as much as I enjoyed them both, I still prefer the Uncharted games on the whole. There's just something about the mix of action/puzzles/character interactions in those games that seem to tick more boxes for me than the TLOU games do. :)

    Oh yes, the writing, acting etc really were top-draw. I too love the Uncharted games but TLOU tops them for me. But both of them are the reason I will buy anything Naughty Dog put out - they're one of my favourite developers.

    I read a really interesting article about TLOU2 the other day and what it had to say about Abby and Ellie was very interesting I thought. Major spoilers ahead:

    Currently playing The Last of Us 2. Fantastic as expected, and I'm only a few hours into it! Apart from the absolutely jaw dropping mo-cap animations and character emotions, there are some superb touches that make the experience memorable. For eg:
    Spoiler:
    I can't believe the level of detail that's gone into it. And it's not even a "mission" level! It's grim, it's emotional, and it's savage. But yeah, it's also an easy classic.

  • I played GTA V drunk last night then fell asleep!
    I woke up and i was standing outside a medical centre, no idea what happened! I went to bed :))

  • I really am not much of a gamer anymore, last thing I was playing was AOE 3. Next thing will probably be AOE 4 - if it ever comes out. My desktop PC has been caputt for months, and that was the only thing that had the oommpphh to play some of these modern games, mind you I would prolly have to play some of the more recent ones at 320 x 240 for it to cope!! :-)

    Are you sure this isn't a photo from your basement? :))

  • Unfortunately, I don't have a basement, I have to use the walls.. I spend a fortune on wallpaper :/

  • Wouldn’t it be cheaper in the long run to invest in a patio? ;)

  • If Fred West were still alive he could have built one, i heard he does a killer patio :))
    Er, too far?

  • Yakuza Kiwami 2. Really, really enjoying this one after not being all that enamoured with Yakuza 0. It's a good game, don't get me wrong, and I enjoyed playing as Majima, but it felt several chapters overlong.
  • Wouldn’t it be cheaper in the long run to invest in a patio? ;)

    The patio is already full :/
    So far, so meh :)
  • I think the screenshot is in the wrong thread, this is a photo of the tomato sauce polo cooked after reading Vampyre's instructions.
  • I've been playing the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. I can feel my PC crying inside every time I play it, but it's good fun. :)
  • Ghost of Tsushima.

    It's been a bit of a cracker so far. Think you might enjoy it Boozey. RPG, Samurai, nice combat system, tightly controlled open world. Ticks all my boxes! Prologue is great too.

    Need to create a WoSF FS2020 team online, get some multiplayer (crashing) going on :D

    Been enjoying Ghost Of Tsushima. I've committed sacrilege though by changing the spoken language from Japanese to English. Reason: you know in GTA/RDR/etc when you're on your way to somewhere with a buddy and a conversation takes place? This does the same but you really miss out on the beauty of the game by reading the subtitles! So I keep switching it back and forth which is a little annoying as you have to save your game beforehand otherwise you lose your progress. No biggie though.

    As for gameplay - it's less like the Witcher, Sekiro or Nioh that I thought it would be. It's a lot more like Shadow Of Mordor than anything else - it really does play quite similar (apart from the parkour stuff) with the bow mechanic, listen mode, using the environment to disrupt the enemy, fun combat etc. Even the way that every settlement has a Lord to beat so you can quickly upgrade your character. No bad thing as Shadow of Mordor is still a terrific game. Solid 8/10 so far and I've barely scratched the surface. I can imagine it's only going to get better too.

  • I’m going to buy that game sometime soon...

    I think I need a slight break from Elder Scrolls especially after the last update completely nerfed a sorcerer I’ve spent close to the last 9 or 10 months building up to a solid DPS I can run trials with. I had to respec him and change and retrain 2 abilities I had maxed out. The alternate skill morphs do about half the damage I was doing before the patch, so I’m not best pleased about it. I suppose on the plus side my main character got significant buffs to a lot of his skills, and passives, so it’s not all bad. Annoyingly enough though they’ve changed the skill rapid maneuver to an Assault level 5 skill instead of level 3. So 3 of my 4 characters can no longer use it, which is a nightmare, as my Necro-Vamp still runs faster than his horse does....

  • I recently got me a broadband adapter for my Gamecube and revisited Phantasy Star Online Episode 1 & 2. My old characters I made back in 2004 still exist, so I took them online and play on a private server (the official ones were closed over 10 years ago). Small population, but there's a Discord so you can find people to play with.

    I'll add that in this game, I actually found a Heaven Punisher a while ago, though I doubt it'll mean anything to anyone here as the game is widely unknown - and I don't mean known by name as I'm sure retro gamers will have heard about the game, but actually played? Nah, don't think so.
