    Halo Reach from the MCC on PC (Game Pass).

    One of the original ones I never played on Xbox. Quite enjoying it to be fair. Runs super smooth even with my GPU basically falling asleep at around 45% usage (and clocks of around 1200..) @ 1440p / locked 144FPS, although it feels like it doesn't like running at over 60FPS as the animations go a bit hinkey at times.

    Been a rough few weeks so nice to enjoy a bit of gaming again.

    Also having my PC now in the NZXT H1 and its spooky how quite it is..

    Still mostly playing No Man's Sky with the new Desolation update, the new derelict freighters with their mini stories are a nice addition to the game.
    Looks like they may have broken something with ultrawide resolutions on the main menu though as when you click 'New Game' it doesn't show the options for what difficulty you want unless you downgrade to a lower resolution.

    Had to tweak my settings temporarily so that only friends can interact with my bases or damage each other as there's a fair few people hovering around the early nexus mission sites and attacking people.

    FarCry 5

    I'm playing coop with a friend. I have a souped-up M60, he has a souped-up M82. I run around being Rambo, while he hilariously overkills people sneaking up on me. Brilliant. Also, parachute jumps out of helicopters then walking away with the crash exploding behind us is standard operating procedure.

    I heard really mixed things about Far Cry 5, seemed to mostly be technical grumblings about the implementation of online co-op. Does it work okay? Is the game good in itself, any technical gremlins aside?

    Thing about coop games is it depends on who you play it with. My friend and I are quite competent gamers, so there's no annoying skill disparities, plus we get on well. In terms of stability, we've had absolutely no problems (jinxed it now).

    I played Far Cry 3 through - took a while to get into it, but it was good fun. I then tried Far Cry 4, but it was so similar, I couldn't be bothered.Far Cry 5 is the same again and if I were just playing by myself, I'd have given up by now. However, coop makes it so much fun. One moment we're doing a last stand armed with M60s against attack helicopters, the next moment we're using fishing rods to capture fish (duh) to coax a bear to follow you.

    The game is VERY pretty though and has a mentally huge gaming world. And you can get a pet dog that revives you. And a cougar. And a bear. We both got the Gold edition for 80% off in a Steam sale. For that price, it's a no brainer, though only if you have a friend to play it with. I'd play the game on hard to increase the need to work together, but you have to play the first small section by yourself, which is an absolute ballache to get by.

    State of Decay 2. I'm on Nightmare Zone these days, there are 100s of hours of play in this game and frequent updates and new stuff. It's not perfect, but for a zombie apocalypse experience with great gun play and perma death consequences it's very good.

    I’m playing it alone and really enjoying it. I played Far Cry 3 and it feels very similar, which isn’t a bad thing. There’s a great sense of exploration, the world is beautiful, the combat is fun, and you genuinely hate the antagonists. Perfect for escapism.

    I’ve never really liked sandbox games but this one’s fun. Can’t comment in online coop but there are some annoying bugs I’ve seen (loot trucks never working). Nothing game breaking though.
