Finished the second Control expansion, AWE, it wasn't too long but still fun.  I really like the gameplay for control in general.  Wish there was more coming but it looks like we could finally get a Alan Wake 2, OR, even better, a AW and Control crossover game.

I loved Alan Wake but I just could not get into Control as all. Maybe I am getting older (as I play less and less games nowadays and to be honest only Witcher 2,3 and and PS4 exclusives such as Unchanged and Last of Us made me really interested and involved..

 

But the fact that I did love Uncharted 4 and Witcher 3 showed me that the games can still be amazing - it's just that I don't like average stories anymore and I expect a story worthy of a movie with the great gameplay.

 

Maybe that is why for casual escapism I liked all the TellTale games. I want an interactive story. Witcher was the only game that was actually challenging, that I liked.

 

I used to be fan of point and click rather then hardcore shooters.. though I loved fighting games too.

 

All the call of duty games that came out in last 10 years - I tried to like them but just could not do it and get bored.

 

I do have great hopes for Cyberpunk that comes out for my birthday - as something that will get me enjoying games again

Started playing Far Cry 5 last night, only 1hr in but it's what I've come to expect from the series.

Finally picked up the Batman Telltale series games recently. Finished the first game a couple weeks ago and absolutely loved it. I'm about to start episode 2 of Enemy Within now.

MAFIA - DEFINITIVE EDITION.

 

 

fantastic game, i played the original at the release, but it did not age well.    mafia 2 was not great and mafia 3 was a buggy dissapointment all around.

 

however, after positive reviews i have bought the Mafia 1 remake, and DAMN, i am having a lot of fun again. love it. the gameplay is dated, the cover mechanics are minimal and gun play does not improve, but the story and the graphics and the city and the general vibe of the game - DAMN,  i am totally happy to pay for it.  

 

great game remake, that almost makes up for Hangar 13 next "failures" LOL -   looking forward what they can produce next - they clearly have NOT lost the passion to make a great experience!

which skill tree are  you focusing, i had no patience for alchemy (i tried),  then i have beat the game with combat focus, and then with sign focus  - both are much easier to keep up with, while i enjoyed the story.

I tried playing this on my PS4 Pro but the load times killed it for me, so I'm waiting until the PS5 turns up to enjoy the goodness.

I started it, but I don't think I was really prepared for the hours needed to progress. I've just started rewatching the Netflix series though and now I've got an itch to give it another go. It's just a pity that my PS4 is in a different country to me at the moment. :laugh:

Minecraft Dungeons, and I have downloaded the KH series on Game Pass to give that a bash, as I've never played the KH series.

I finished Far Cry 5, ughh that ending.  Now I jumped into Ace Combat 7, long time Ace Combat fan growing up.  I had started playing this before FC5 actually but left it to the side for a bit.

Detroit Become Human.

First go was on PS4 - this time on PC

 

I love the interactive dramas like that.

 

I tried to play differently then the last time and managed to see some new parts of the story 

 

Still it was hard and some parts of the story played out exactly the same ;) as I was just selecting the choices that felt right to me.

 

Amazing experience though that I could not put down this weekend. (note I love interactive dramas more then hardcore gameplay - and I used to love point and click games before - so story matters more to me then anything else)

Finished Darksiders 2, though there's some bonus dlc story stuff I haven't done yet but the core main game is done.  Installing Darksiders 3 as I type this.

Started a new playthrough of Life is Strange recently. I love how the game does a good job of covering mental health and a bunch of other things while still being a fun story experience.

Yeah I really enjoyed the game. Wasn't the best graphically but had a decent story.

 

Started playing Watch Dogs 2 again and I don't know....The driving in this game is terrible which can make moving around the game a pain. I feel the camera had a mind of it's own. 

 

Actual stealth/hacking gameplay is solid. Love that you're just tossed into a situation and you can tackle it in a number of ways. Story is meh.

Finished Darksiders 3, hope a 4th is on the way so we can see how this whole story arc ends.   The delay in cyberpunk has me looking at something else to play now, but I don't want a long game again.  Might play through some of these smaller indie titles I have.

I MUST NOT SPEND THE HOURS ON IT, I RESERVED THEM FOR CYBERPUNK... or so i keep saying to myself.   why why why did i try it...

 

EDIT: I am also trying  C&C and Red Alert Remaster - i use to LOVE those games soo soo very much, but they are doing nothing for me now.   honestly, i might need more paitience to get into the control and gameplay again, this is not a casual pickup fun i was hope it would be.

I think that game has a love hate relationship, alot of people can't get enough and for others like myself i found it far too slow, so after a year of trying to get into it  i gave up and sold it.

      AMD Radeon 21.7.2 driver adds support for Chernobylite and more Vulkan extensions
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      AMD today brought forth another driver update for its graphics cards in the form of Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.7.2. It's not a jam-packed release, but it does include support for Chernobylite, the science fiction survival game from The Farm 51 team, along with a couple of more Vulkan API extensions, and bug fixes.

      Chernobylite is launching out of Early Access this week on PC, and those with graphics cards from the red team will want to upgrade to the latest driver for optimal performance. Unfortunately, AMD has not provided any data on the exact improvements users can expect.

      The handful of bug fixes included in this driver are these:

      Known issues to keep an eye out for are as follows:

      Details on the Vulkan extensions can be found on the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 21.7.2 release notes page here. The driver is now available for download on 64-bit Windows 10 systems via the Radeon Software app on Windows in the optional section. Links for standalone installations can also be found on the above release notes.

      Microsoft Flight Simulator is now available on Xbox Series X|S and Game Pass
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Microsoft announced the return of Flight Simulator back in 2019, bringing its longest-running game franchise to users in its newest form, leveraging Azure for features such as dynamic scenery and real-time weather. The game launched on the PC in August 2020, becoming available through the Microsoft Store, Steam, and Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers. However, there was no word on the release timeline for Xbox users.

      Fast forward to E3 this year, and the Redmond firm finally announced a date for the arrival of the game on the latest-generation Xbox consoles. While pre-orders opened back then, Flight Simulator is now available on Xbox Series X|S consoles starting today. The simulation game is being made available to Xbox Game Pass for Console and Ultimate subscribers as well as pre-order customers starting today only on the latest-generation consoles, with the company promising optimizations aimed at console simmers. The firm adds that users can “expect the same level of depth as the PC version”.

      In addition to the launch, the company is also listing improvements and feature addition being made to the simulator, which includes enhancements to the world map in the way of satellite images, map labels, new Discovery Flights to famous locations, and more. There are new trainings for those unfamiliar with VFR navigation, takeoff and landing manoeuvers, and flying jets like the Airbus A320neo. A new Flight Assistant tool further provides AI-based assistance for Autoland, navigating to points of interest, and avoiding stalls, aimed especially at beginners and casual simmers. There are also tweaks been made to make it possible to “land anywhere”, including on water.

      The latest iteration of Flight Simulator has been a massive hit for the company. The game was termed as being the biggest Game Pass launch yet. The offering has been constantly updated with free ‘World Updates’ bringing complex sceneries, something that will continue to be offered for both PC and Xbox users, bug fixes, and more. The game also gained VR support late last year, bringing a more immersive way for users to experience the simulator.

      In addition to the usual World Updates, Microsoft will also be releasing a Top Gun: Maverick expansion on November 19, aligning with the release of the Top Gun: Maverick movie, which the firm is celebrating with Paramount Pictures. The trailer for the expansion suggests that it will include aircraft carriers and an F/A-18 Super Hornet.

      You can grab Flight Simulator from the Microsoft Store here, with the Standard Editions starting at $59.99. As mentioned earlier, the game is included in Xbox Game Pass. However, users that have already purchased the game on the PC will have access to it on the console. Though the Play Anywhere tag seems to be missing in the Microsoft Store listing, the firm notes the availability of the feature in an FAQ listing that was updated earlier today.

      Xbox Ultimate Game Sale feature Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, and more
      by Asher Madan

      Every week, Microsoft and select publishers discount a number of titles for a weekly Deals with Gold sale. However, there's also an Ultimate Game Sale going on this week which adds even more games! Titles from the Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, and other franchises are available for substantially less. Below, you'll find the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 games with their respective discounts. The deals and games marked with an asterisk are only valid for Xbox Live Gold members, so you'll need an active paid subscription for the additional discount.

      Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One
      Xbox 360
      Many of the games are also backward compatible so you can play them on your Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One. There really isn't much going on this week if you only own an Xbox 360. However, there are a lot of classics like The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings on sale.

      Which titles are you interested in? Did you buy any up? Let us know in the comments below.

      Dark Souls Remastered loyalty discount on Steam is going away this September
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The original Dark Souls by FromSoftware received a remaster in 2018, and since then, those who already owned the original Prepare to Die Edition on Steam have received a "loyalty discount reward" that pulled down the new version's price by 50%. Now, after years of keeping this promotion active, the discount program is going away on September 30, 2021.

      Arriving via a Steam community post, the announcement did not give a reason for this change-up, only going on to urge old edition owners to upgrade to the remaster while the discount is still active.

      The original Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition has been unavailable for purchase since 2018, but it is still playable for anyone who owns it. It will also remain in player libraries as a separate entry even after gaining the remastered edition.

      Dark Souls: Remastered normally comes in at $39.99 on Steam, but with the loyalty discount, Prepare to Die version owners can grab it for $19.99 until the promotion ends in September. Developed by QLOC, the remaster offers enhancements to the visuals, frame rate, resolution, multiplayer, and other areas of the massively popular RPG that's known for its difficult but rewarding gameplay.

      The remaster has been missing from Steam sales since 2019, but with the loyalty discount shuttering soon, sales may be returning as well. As it's set up now, any regular discount to the game would also stack with the loyalty discount, offering a massive deal for old edition owners.
