    I'm about 10% into it at the moment. I know for a fact I won't 100% any aspect of the game, it's too huge.

    Gwent is embarrassingly good fun, though. I can see myself getting obsessed with that.

    Nothing embarrassing about it, I happily clocked up all those achievements.

    Not sure what I did/did not get overall (i'm not usually bothered, KCD for example will remain complete bar one - i ain't going through a playthrough not killing anyone! Insane!)

    This W3 talk has got me thinking I didn't spend enough time on it, may install it again.

    I remember the music being particularly atmospheric.

    It's the weather effects, for me. Standing out on windy hilltops watching trees moving actually felt like standing on a windy hilltop, for the first time I can think of in any video game. Sounds a bit hipstery, but it's true.

    Wanting to play it again is my primary motivator to finish my end-of-year accounts...

    FONV on the eggs box.

    Sadly it doesn't have 4k like FO3, so it looks a bit ass. Still it's FONV alright, so I shouldn't complain.

    I finally completed Witcher 3 over Christmas after many repeated attempts at playing the game and deciding that I hated it around the Skellige part of the story.
    I think this was probably my 7th or 8th attempt at playing the game, I enjoyed the rest of the game... I think it's mostly the way that Skellige is all split up with the islands so far from each other that made me hate that part of the game so much, I felt like that map forces you to use the fast travel against your will because sailing around is unbearably dull.
    ---

    Just started up the new DBZ Kakarot game, enjoying it so far after my 40 mins exploring... though I did manage to glitch Goku into a position where I couldn't move almost immediately so they need to do some work ironing out areas where you can get stuck.

    I thought the first Witcher game was mechanically pretty terrible, to be honest, and there's no way in hell that I'd go back and replay it now. Same goes for the second game really.

    That said, Witcher 3 is a fantastic game in a number of respects - storytelling, worldbuiling, questlines, characters, level of detail. All of that is genuinely excellent. But the combat is utterly boring and rote, and even on higher difficulties it just isn't really engaging. There are a handful of encounters (earlyish on) that are a challenge, but then it's just dull. Shame, because if the combat was better then it would be near-perfect as a game.

    Hopped back on Fallout 4 last night. Didn't realise that I had last played it in February 2018....

    I have been sitting in the Nuka World DLC for far too long so I went on and cleared up a bunch of stuff in there. Nowt quite like shooting raiders in the face until their heads fall off, just need to power up the place, find a couple more bits and then I can head back off the the Commonwealth and Far Harbor - Still got plenty to do.

    THIS! I really want to play the trilogy, but don't want to charge in at number three. I tried playing the first game, but what the hell is up with the combat? I managed to get a little way in (I think I managed to repel the attack at the start of the game) but I've no idea how since the combat makes no sense to me.

    Honestly, I'd just skip the first two and play 3.

    I loved the first two!

    Mind you I fear going back to playing them now in case it ruins the memories.

    I found the 1st difficult to get into, ended up skipping and just played the 2nd which I really enjoyed. And I'm looking forward to getting around to the 3rd at some point :D

    ...I've got too many games that I want to play at the moment, I keep switching between games every session.

    My main rotation right now is DBZ Kakarot, X4 Foundations and For the King - thankfully they're all games that are easy to dip in and out of. Need to go back into playing a bit of Yakuza at some point as well.
    After about 3 hours of DBZ Kakarot, I think I might struggle with the higher level stuff with this game as I've found that I'm not particularly good at that style of combat... never been amazing at fighting games and the combat in this is pretty much a a slightly more complex fighting game.

    Temtem has eaten all my playtime lately. I haven't even touched Iron Banana (Destiny 2) yet this week and it's the final day! Too busy catching Tems and levelling up!

    Pootling about in X4 having a jolly old time.

    Being very slow, just added a few bits to the PHQ and randomly had ANT go hostile because I defended a HOP station and killed one of them. Odd as I nor anything I owned was near HOP territory or, well, anything.

    Oh well, I have an enemy for when I get a fleet. May be some time yet, I get distracted easily.

    That is a bit odd.
    It's more fun if you side with HOP and become hostile with everyone else over the course of the game anyway, lots more action for your fleets.
    Plus HOP are being bullied by everyone from the start, so they need a friend.

    Yeah it was a bit odd. Not sure if it's a beta bug or not.

    I only had two miners out and about, everything else was grounded.

    I had a save a few minutes before and set all the global settings to not attack pirates if for some reason it was logging that at the PHQ/laser towers but no change.

    It must have been HOP space though, i got credits for defending their station and a healthy rank boost. So that was nice.

    Who knows, an ANT ship may have hit a nav beacon and now i'm their most wanted :happy:

    But yeah, I like the HOP, ANT can stay red.

    Not sure if it's different to previous games or I just can't find it but the logbook didn't really tell me where it happened. Hey ho.

    Just found my old Crysis disc while unpacking our books from the move 18 months ago. Put it on this system, did the updates and after 15 minutes of play I'm slightly bored of it, trying to work out if the game has aged badly or if it's me (it's probably me). I used to love this game (well until the alien underground level at least) but now it doesn't do much for me.

    Still waiting until I have a large chunk of time to play X4 as I don't feel its a game i want to play for 30 minutes here and there, plus the X games have never got worse as they have matured.
