I have been mostly striding the galaxy like a colossus in Elite Dangerous, which is the epitome of grind. After >3000 hrs. logged, i'm triple elite, 20 billion credits in assets with quadruple gold squadron trophies so
pretty burned out. I game less in summer so i'm taking a hiatus until the paid content in November. Current gaming is just an occasional few laps in Assetto Corsa.

Skyrim continues to astound me. I spent a few days modding it up, breathtaking:

Ion Fury (GOG), what a blast from the past! It's a Duke Nukem 3d clone using the same 3D Realms Build engine. The game even has true software mode, but my CPU isn't just fast enough for that (720p @ 60Hz is way too blury on a 4K panel). The openGL looks and runs significantly better anyway (4K@60Hz looks great). But, the software mode is there in case you are after the retro feel.

9/10, if you like ''classic 2.5D shooters''.

I'm *playing Red Redemption 2 and it's possibly the most visually appealing game I've played with Skyrim coming a close second.




*Had it a couple of weeks...still on chapter 2.
Great character in it who keeps calling out 'Gavin!....Gav!...has anyone seen Gavin?' Laughing

Got Borderlands 2 which is free on Epic games today. Started playing it, don't really care for it. I suspect because I'm not 12 years old.

Totally agree, we must be in a minority but I found the first two Borderlands games absolute shite, not even going to bother with the 3rd instalment.

Currently playing Doom Eternal, having beaten the 2016 one the other week. I finally understand what all the fuss is about with high refresh rate monitors, playing that locked at 144fps is absolutely glorious.

I never quite understood all the hype around Borderlands 3, having played the first and second and never could finish either. They get very repetitive and it seems like you only ever fight one type of enemy. The only thing that kept me interested was the variety of guns.

Borderlands is one of those games, if you like looter shooters, its good.

If you don't, then you won't.

Like RPGs, I like specific ones, J-RPGs, adventure rpg and shit like Witcher suck anal leakage to me, but J-RPGs. Yes.

Err... Shooters are completely my jam. I love Doom 2016 (all the Doom games in fact) The Quake series, Titanfall 2, the Portal games, the Half Life games, the Rainbow 6 games, Dark Forces series, Call of Juarez, the Deus Ex series, Soldier of Fortune series, Swat 3 and 4, Red Faction series, TimeSplitters 1 and 2, GoldenEye, Gunman Chronicles, Far Cry games, Operation IGI, No One Lives Forever - so many.

Borderlands just seemed like kiddie nonsense to me. Maybe it's the 'looter' aspect of it. The deaths seemed basically consequence free, the monsters annoying, the cover sparse, the weapons humdrum and the NPC's enormous caricatures. It's like they took an adult shooter, and took all the good stuff out, and then rebuilt it so a 5 year old could play it. Yawn, I'm glad it was free and I'm probably going to end up uninstalling it to free up space.

Minecraft Dungeons.
It's on Game Pass.
It's not bad, but a little simplified maybe, but then it's not aimed at 50 year olds. Smile

It's similar in a way to Children of Morta, but easier.
Have to play it on easy to unlock the harder settings.

I've only played it co op.


As for Borderlands, a couple of months ago me and my OH played through the pre sequel. An easy way to spend time together shooting people in a legal way Smile
Have never played any of the Borderlands games solo. Maybe having a partner in crime helps with the gameplay?

We also have Borderlands 3 bought, but waiting for all the year 1 DLC to be released before playing it.

This is not a shooter. It is a looter shooter.

MANY things are different, it has spastic gun play, there is no recoil stats, there is no control, its wacky for wacky sake and its a loot machine.

Destiny 2 has the most outstanding gunplay of all time, but is also semi looter as guns roll differently per drop and you are forever chasing a good one.

Its fun if you like builds and stacking buffs and stuff like MMORPG but also don't have great aim and just want to fire guns that are crazy. I have a gun that shoots other guns for example... so you can pick up random other guns and fuck around.

Actual shooters, they are my thing, but I fucking hate Half Life and things around that as its RNG bullets annoy me. Laughing I play at a decent competitive level and I want to hit my shots, not pray that my hip fired shots will hit within the reticle etc.

As with most looter shooters, yes. Its like anything with MMORPG aspects needs multiple players

Dunno, I don't like it, but then again I don't really play Multiplayer, so *shrug* maybe it's single player campaign is bad and the multiplayer is good?

RNG bullets as you call it are closer to actual reality, else every shot fired by a trained soldier would be a head shot.

I have to admit I never liked Call of Duty and the sort of game whose pace is ADHD relentless. I prefer something with a bit of tactics, where you think about what you're doing before you do it. This is why my favourite FPS's of all time for gameplay are the Deus Ex series, SWAT 3 and 4 and the Rainbow Six series. The sad thing is the last Deus Ex did terrifically badly from a commercial standpoint so they'll probably never make another, and that's extraordinarily sad. Also I lament the dying of the single player campaign in gaming. Half life, say what you want about it, it had an immense immersive interesting single player campaign. You're a scientist, not a soldier, so the expanding reticle thing is just a good addition.

I don't play competitively, and I don't want to. I play to have fun. If I played competitively I think it would remove the fun of it and I'd have to stop.

I think my favourite sort of game is a First Person shooter, but with puzzle elements involving lateral thinking, multiple paths and multiple ways to solve one problem with a tad of tactics and strategy thrown in. For this reason I do still like strategy games, I do still like puzzlers and I don't mind stealth games although too much is not really for me. Hence why the Deus Ex games are masterpieces in my opinion.

Nah I see your point. Borderlands is definitely more coop than solo.

Competitive is where money is made and is incredibly fun if you are good at it, when you are bad, it's soul destroying.

I just like knowing when I fire and someone is 6ft away, my handgun will pop a head. Hence why I ditched controller.

Just managed to bag Mechwarrior 5 for a massively discounted price (lower than the current offer price!) and got a free key for Hitman 2 (which I assume is the remake and not the original Hitman 2?) off of a guy I know.

Will be playing those tonight and Friday night. Especially looking forward to Mechwarrior as I'm a sucker for giant robot fighting (hence my love for Titanfall 2).

There was this game in Japan, it is Gundam so not real robot stuff, but this was a machine that was on the entire 2 floors of an arcade.

If I could read japanese to understand how to play, I would have.

They also had this which was cool as fuck.

So I played MW5. I wasn't sure at first, because the armour and air units seemed to be pretty tough, and the weapons on the mechs seem comparatively weak, and I was having difficulty with the first few missions.

I discovered that it's much more tactical than previous games, and the Mechs aren't as hardcore, but actually it's a lot of fun. Situational awareness is much more important and positioning your mech in cover and terrain is much more important than just choosing the right guns to blast at the enemy.

I'm not quite having as much fun as I did with MW4, but it's pretty good and I think it has potential to get a LOT better as the game progresses.

I bought this day of release, and thought I was playing the campaign when in fact all I was doing was hopping from system to system doing missions. I was about 40 hours in and thought to myself 'this is a bloody long game'. When I realised my mistake and started following the mission protocol, the AI had ramped the difficulty up to near impossible. You can't lower the difficulty settings and the AI goes off your mech strength, hours played etc.

I just got frustrated and fucking deleted it.

Destiny 2 - the free to play version on steam.

I've never really gotten into the whole MMO thing, I gave world of warcraft a go and didn't really get on with it.

After giving Destiny 2 a go, 8 hours suddenly disappeared, with the help of a friend while on discord.

I'm still getting used to how the whole MMO thing works, there's a lot to take in, but the public events are pretty brutal and great fun with a few mates, running around causing total carnage.

It's very likely I'm gonna buy the upgrade edition.

So I played it a bit more and ran sort of into the issue you mentioned. I didn't realise the difficulty of the missions is something that is absolute, and I took a mission that was basically impossible. Also because of the curve, I ended up with 3 mechs, and after the mission loss with heavy damage had to sell one of my mechs to fund repairs to the other two. After that, every mission that I tried was impossible with only two 'mechs. So the campaign AI is basically completely unforgiving. In the end I started a new campaign from scratch and I'm hoping to avoid the issues I ran into by paying closer attention to mission difficulty. It's a shame as the game itself is great fun, but the strategy in the campaign ought to either be explained more thoroughly or made a bit fairer.

I do love an RTS and C&C is one of my favourites, along with Red Alert.

Next time I want to play, I'll get the remastered version Smile

I played through both a couple of years ago, along with Starcraft and Warcraft. I get these RTS binges that can only be sated with those.

Currently attempting to play Civ 6. Have restarted several times, learning a bit each time, but can't seem to work out what the actual point of the game is.

Also still playing Minecraft Dungeons with my OH. It can be brutal at times on the higher levels.
