The Witcher is my favourite. Cannot imagine a better game now 

I've just bought the Complete version of that for PS4, i want to get the Platinum, unfortunately you have to play on the hardest level for that trophy right from the start and you can't downgrade the difficulty or you void getting the trophy.

 

Currently playing Day of the Tentacle Remastered on PS4.

Just finished Bloodstained Ritual of the Night.  Final fight is a PITA, but overall it's a nice game.

Finished Far Cry 5 a few days ago and then powered through The Gardens Between. A cool little puzzle game.

Started The Outer Worlds a few days ago.  Getting my butt handed to me during combat .. growing tired of all the side quests (go to y and talk to x, run back to z and tell q you talked to x, rinse/repeat) ... though I feel the need to complete them.  Thought I liked these types of RPG games (like Fallout) ... but this one is wearing on me.  I'm afraid to talk to anyone as they may unload even more quests.  Just a bit overwhelming, to me, and it's starting to feel like "work" ... would be nice to figure out how to level my character where I didn't die quickly or the enemy weren't bullet sponges (playing on normal difficulty).  

 

It is pretty though.

Combat is a lot harder in the early game if you haven't gotten used to it.  Do some quests, find some better gear, and stick with it, it's worth it.

RDR2, second go through. This game is just such a great game, though I feel I am missing something with never playing #1, but I have been having so much fun with #2!

1.  Anno 2205 (still). It replaced SimCity 2013 as my city-builder and RTS du jour; I can't take it to GeForce Now yet (which is a quibble).  Why it's a quibble - if you have merely Intel HD4400 graphics or better (which goes back to Ivy Bridge), it can still be fun to play and looks graphically gorgeous.

 

2.  Ashes of the Singularity - Escalation.  What I play when I'm not playing Anno 2205.  Like Anno 2205, it also looks graphically gorgeous; unlike Anno 2205, it takes advantage of DX12.  It basically replaced Supreme Commander and (surprisingly) Galactic Civilizations II as my sandbox game of choice.

Started a game I've been wanting to play for a while. Witcher 2 on Xbox. I had forgotten what it actually means to sink hours into a game, just exploring!

 

A few frustrations

  • Map seems a bit pointless, no way to add a way point or actually see specific items/locations
  • Inventory systems seems super clunky, way too many tabs (at least for a controller)
  • Missions can sometimes be a little vague....could be me being used to be hand held

I also in the first town (Flotsam) got into a big of a loop, having accidentally pulled my sword out, I kept having guards attacking me, killing me and then the game reloading to the point just before being attacked. 

 

Other than that, it's a great game!

Been playing RDR2 online and been having fun with it.  Teamed up with a posse and went around trying to recruit users.  If they do not respond, we tie them up and have fun dumping their bodies of feeding them to gators.

 

Last night, there was a 15 user battle we participated in.  Largest group of people in the same area I have seen so far.  So that was fun.

Not missing anything really as RDR1 takes place after RDR2.  I believe RDR1 is backwards compatible if you wanted to play that.  John Marston is the end character in RDR2 but the main character in RDR1.

Don't have a console system, only PC, so I can't play RDR1

yeah those bullet points are its age showing. controller support was also an afterthought, was meant as a mouse keyboard game.

 

I've started playing through again too as I've never gotten around to beating the game and I want to finish it first before I start playing 3

 

As a side note, I've been playing via Geforce Now. Love being able to play on my low end laptop and on my shield tv in the bedroom when I don't want to be on my main tower :)

On my laptop I use a Wii U Pro controller :rofl: and on my shield tv I just use a generic android bluetooth controller.

Finished The Outer Worlds ... which ended up being fine.  Parvati needs a spin off series.

 

Now playing the original 2006 Prey.  Interesting and weird game...I'm liking it.

      Razer's modular Tomahawk Gaming Desktop is now available
      by Rich Woods

      Today, Razer announced that its new, modular Tomahawk Gaming Desktop is available for purchase. It was first announced at CES this year, and it comes with a tool-less sled to gain access to the internals.

      It's a 10L chassis (210x150x365mm), so it's a small PC, and it comes with the signature Razer design language that fans are going to appreciate. That means that it's made out of CNC-milled aluminum with a matte black finish. It's also got Chroma lighting along the base.

      It's actually designed around an Intel NUC, so it comes with ninth-generation Intel H-series CPUs, specifically, the overclockable Core i9-9980HK. It does have room for a full-size GPU though, up to 320x140mm. You can actually have it configured with up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080.

      Image from CES earlier this year Packed with a 750W PSU, 16GB DDR4 memory, a 512GB SSD, and a 2TB HDD, it has two Thunderbolt 3 ports, four USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, two gigabit Ethernet ports, and 3.5mm audio ports.

      The Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop is available today, starting at $2,399.99. That base model comes with an unpopulated PCIe slot where you can use any GPU you want. For $3,199.99, you can get the model with the RTX 3080. If you want to check it out, you can find it here.

      BioWare loses its general manager and Dragon Age executive producer
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      BioWare today announced that two major pillars of its development teams are leaving the company, with studio veterans Casey Hudson and Mark Darrah exiting. Their latest positions had Hudson serving as the BioWare general manager while Darrah was the Dragon Age executive producer, both touts over two decades of experience at the company. No changes are being made to the projects in development at the studio.

      "It’s not an easy decision to make, and big changes like this always come with a certain degree of sadness," said Casey Hudson in a farewell blog post. "I will miss being able to work every day with our inspiring developers on the biggest and most exciting projects I can imagine. But I also know that this is a good time for a change, for both myself and BioWare."

      A separate blog post from Mark Darrah added the following:

      The BioWare Austin studio director Christian Dailey will be taking over the duties of Darrah at being the Dragon Age executive producer. Meanwhile. the senior director of development operations Gary McKay will serve as the BioWare interim general manager while a new soul is being searched for the position.

      BioWare is currently developing the next Dragon Age game, a new Mass Effect entry, remasters of the original Mass Effect trilogy, as well as an Anthem reboot. The studio saw two high-level departures last year also, with Anthem Lead Producer Ben Irving and the Dragon Age Lead Producer Fernando Melo exiting BioWare.

      Cyberpunk 2077's exact launch and pre-load times detailed
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      CD Projekt RED's highly anticipated RPG Cyberpunk 2077 is almost ready for prime time, and with no more delays in sight, the studio today revealed when exactly can players pre-load as well as jump into the game. Every platform seems to be following a schedule of its own.

      Starting with PC, Cyberpunk 2077 pre-loads will be available for download starting 12PM CET on December 7 on the GOG store. Steam and Epic Games Store version owners can begin their downloads at 5PM CET, also on December 7. Every PC copy of the title and the Stadia version will unlock for play at midnight GMT on December 10 (4pm PST / 7pm EST). See the unlock map image below to see when each region will gain access.

      Meanwhile on consoles, all Xbox console versions of Cyberpunk 2077 will have the pre-load available at 5PM CET from December 3. PlayStation console owners will have the longest wait time, as their pre-loads will begin sometime on December 8, two days prior to the launch. All console versions of Cyberpunk 2077 will release at midnight local time on December 10 in each region.

      Although next-gen console owners can play Cyberpunk 2077 on their machines, it will be the current-gen version that will be running using backward compatibility. The newer systems will run the game at higher frame rates, but CD Projekt RED is also working on a dedicated next-gen version of the RPG that will be provided free to current owners. This enhanced version will land in 2021.

      Microsoft has acquired Smash.gg, an esports platform for gaming tournaments
      by Jo√£o Carrasqueira



      Microsoft has been making some major investments in its gaming efforts, which became even more apparent with the acquisition of ZeniMax Media announced in October. Now, the company seems to be interested in entering the esports scene, as Smash.gg, a platform for organizing esports tournaments, has announced that it's been acquired by Microsoft.

      The announcement is short and lacking in detail, simply stating that its relationship with Microsoft will "help strengthen our existing relationships and explore new opportunities". The company says it will continue to operate as before, allowing users to create their own tournaments and events on the platform.

      Microsoft appears to have made a very informal announcement as well, as tweeted by the MSN Esports Twitter account. For those unaware, MSN Esports is a section of MSN that serves live streams, lists sports tournaments and matches, and also has a news section dedicated to gaming news. Smash.gg will apparently be joining this team, so maybe the goal is to make smaller independent tournaments more easily accessible on the hub.

      Without much of a formal announcement, not many details are known yet. We've reached out to Microsoft to try to hear more about its vision for the platform and will update this post with any new information as it comes.
