    Very true, if anything they mature well.

    Steam was down so I played Guild Wars 2 for the first time in... years, as it was the only non Steam game I have installed on Ubuntu.

    Works really well.

    God of War: Dad of Boy

    Good fun so far. Finding combat a little tricky; my usual tactic is to try and bludgeon my way through, and that's really not working out in the early part of the game :grin:.

    Graphics on PS4 Pro look aceballs though to be fair. Only consoles I've been near in recent years are Nintendo machines (Wii U, Switch), so it's a nice surprise to have such good looking graphics.

    Spent the past few evenings playing For the King, only just managed to complete the first storyline as my trio of adventurers really struggled with the final boss. Ended up scraping a victory with one dead and two near death and almost all of my restorative items used up. Planning on doing the snowy quest next...
    I had a similar feeling when I tried to reply the Crysis games a little while back, I think I'm at a point where I'm not enjoying those types of first person shooters as much as I used to.

    Definitely worth having a couple of hours at a time with X4 as you could easily spend the 30 minutes just designing the layout of a station... it's very easy to get side tracked.
    Yeah, I think Egosoft are one of the good developers that actually listen to the feedback from the players on their forums, plus they've always worked well with the modding community to incorporate ideas into their major patches.

    Tried For the King a while ago and really enjoyed it, ended up making a mistake on the final (I think) dungeon section and dying which put me off and I haven't gone back to it properly, might try it this weekend again if I have time.

    I think that has probably been my all time favourite console game to date, it's both extremely gorgeous and has a fantastic story... plus the gameplay is just challenging enough to test you without being infuriatingly hard.
    Unless you try to take on the Valkyries, those optional mini-bosses can be insanely difficult to beat even on the lower difficulties.
    It's a fairly deceptive game, luring you into thinking once you're level 9 or 10 and strong, that the last few bits will be relatively easy and then throwing a series of really tough fights and traps at you before you have to deal with the final boss.
    After failing my first two runs, I learnt to buy Godsbeard from every shop it was available in whenever I could... especially in the early game before it becomes more expensive. Having 6/7 of them on each character for the final sections of the game is a major help.

    Just finished grinding for Federation Rank and got my Corvette yesterday. Well worth it I would say if you're into combat on Elite Dangerous.

    First thought when I saw this was WoW... but it didn't take long to realise it wasn't.

    World of Tanks, although most of the time I really wonder why I'm playing it and why I keep going back to it, :D

    Given Dad of Boy a rest to try out Grand Theft Horse 2 (Red Dead Redemption 2 [which, ackchuwally, is really the third game in the series - people often forget about Red Dead Revolver]).

    It's very... elaborate. I agree with the criticisms that animations are needlessly complicated. For example: do I really need to see the cards being passed around the table when I'm playing poker? I'll grant you that it creates a more immersive atmosphere, but after I've seen it 20 times already it just gets tiresome.

    That said... It's definitely a very pretty game, and there certainly is a lot of game crammed into those two discs - I can see me putting a lot of hours into it. It does have some really great atmospheric moments, I quite happily sat around the campfire listening to NPCs bantering, singing, and getting drunk.

    Monster Hunter Generations on Citra. Custom build and at 2X resolution with an Xbox 1 controller is absolute joy.

    Have to use that free xbox for pc pass i got with my cpu before it expires too.

    Never been good at having more than one game on the go at a time though.

    For single lartplayer stuff i always been a more 'play lots of one game' rather than 'play lots od games'. Clocked over a 1000 hours on division 2 in the last year. Probably helped by being off sick for so long though :worried:

    Aye, I think the only time I have more than one game on the go is when one is on pc and the other on PS4.

    Plus, at the mo, x4 can be left to play by itself while i have other schizzle to do.

    I'm terrible for switching between games too much, it's probably one of the reasons why I almost never complete games... I start them, hop on and off them for a couple of months, then they go to the back of the queue for an extended period.

    A little while back I started the new DBZ game, then switched to For the King for a couple of weeks and now I've switched to Hitman 2 and Pathfinder: Kingmaker.
    By the time I go back to DBZ, I will have completely forgotten how to play. :hehe:

    It's probably especially infuriating when I go back to a competitive multiplayer game and everyone in my team discovers that I've not practiced and I that need to re-ask everyone how to do anything.
