Got both Valhalla and Immortals:Fenix Rising and I had a lot of fun in Fenix over the weekend. 

 

I have read all reviews and thought that I would like Valhalla better at it is less childish  - but no - apparently I like Zelda / I meant Fenix more. I only played Valhalla for 2 hours.

 

Some of the vaults are annoying but combat is pretty fun. I think I am about 10 hours in and plenty to do. And juvenile narration is kind of fun sometimes ;)

 

Was it worth buying both games at full price - not sure -  maybe not - but it is a decent Zelda replacement for the PC - and judging by previous Creeds - both games willl keep the price for a while.

 

Only regret - not buying for PS4 because I wanted better graphics and keyboard and mouse.  - however for PS4 I could have sold both games after I was done and while they still cost a lot.

I played Valhalla for 260hrs on PS5 and loved it, I also have Fenix and will try that after I've completed Control.

I got AC:V full price.  Was a fun game and still play a little now and then.  New DLC coming this month so looking forward to that.

 

Immortals:Fenix Rising is %50 off on XBOX now.  May grab that in a few.   Something to play in between DLCs for other games I am waiting for.

AC:V was/is fun.  I put about just as many hours into it. Maybe a little more.  Looking  forward to AC Japan.  I just enjoy the series.

I tried to play NBA 2k21 but I just couldn't, they've made these too much of a sim than what I grew up with.  I ditched it and started yakouza 3.

Immortals:Fenix Rising was fun.  Got the available DLC and playing that now.  But the main game was fun, the commentary kinda funny, but some of the vaults were a PITA so I skipped over them.

Completed Arkham City over the weekend and picked up another game that I was part way through, Ace Combat 7.

 

It's amazing how much variety they can create for a fairly simple concept. Really enjoying the game so far.

I think I'm around 75% done with Yakuza 3, going to play the Evil Within after this before I swing back to Yakuza 4.  I think it's best to split it up and play something else and not do the whole series back to back.

I still play Quake Champions (almost) every day to blow off steam but I am sick and tired of all the cheating and Bethesda's refusal to deal with it.

hahaha - so true,   i cannot believe so many people buy early access - i tried it, and it is just not worth it, i would rather wait and see the final reviews, and then pay more.

 

same reason i stopped using Kickstarter, as originally it was 75% success, but now it is a freaking gamble. they final product is either delayed for years and by that time someone in china makes a similar version for much cheaper. or it is just not the product they originally described at all.

no more falling for this crap.

Finished the evil within, waiting for MS to put the sequel up on game pass at some point.  I was planning to play Yakuza 4 next but I kind of feel like something else, don't know yet.

I've tried this and that in that series but finally decided since I probably wasn't going to finish any of them anyway I'd just work on Kiwami 2 and go from there.

 

Outriders is pretty much excellent.  I wasn't really expecting a unique and polished property that feels influenced by so many things without being a copy of any of it.

 

After that...?  I have no idea, hoping XSX shipments start showing up in the US again sometime before 2025.  ;)

Gone back to God of War 2018 and trying to get platinum now it's 4K60 on PS5.

i still have ps4pro collecting dusk and i only did like 20% of that game before i stopped playing.  i stopped and could not get back to it after a few month break, so if i play again, i would have to start from scratch, because even after 4 months i forgot all controls and how to play - open world is very different from previous GOWs where i can start from any place at any time, and it just seemed to work.  gameplay is very different.

As are the mods, you can completely change the gameplay with mods!

I never tried mods at all - did not even think about it.  and i did the full game with both expansions twice - most time i EVER spent in the game since i was a teenager with patience and sega genesis - i think i spent 100s of hours on Sonic games - which i later beat in under 10 hours in my 30s LOL  - but as a kid i just could not beat the later levels.

 

anyways - what exactly do mods do?

I last played and completed the story in 2019 and I thought I would struggle with the controls but after 30mins or so it all fell into place and this morning I have managed to kill 5 of the 8 Valkyries which I found too hard before, maybe 60fps makes all the difference.

      Select Insiders can now go back to using Xbox 360 gamerpics on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S
      by Asher Madan

      Even though we're two console generations past the Xbox 360, many gamers remember those days fondly, despite the "Red Ring of Death" that plagued earlier devices. Lately, a slew of Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S owners have been asking Microsoft for a way to go back to their Xbox 360 gamerpics.

      Well, Xbox Engineering Lead Eden Marie took notice and delivered. Today, she said that Xbox Insiders in the Alpha - Skip Ahead ring would see a new option in the "Change gamerpic" section of their profiles.

      Your Xbox 360 gamerpic should appear there, and you'll be able to select it. Luckily, Eden also fixed how they display on modern consoles a few weeks ago so it should look great on your TV.

      If you wanted to use that old Master Chief gamerpic from Halo 3, now's your chance.

      AMD Radeon 21.9.2 driver has support for New World and Diablo II: Resurrected
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The second AMD graphics driver of the month landed today, updating the software suite to version 21.9.2 of the Radeon Software. The update is all focused on adding support for three more soon-releasing titles: Diablo II: Resurrected, New World, and World War Z: Aftermath.

      Launching on September 23, the Diablo II remaster has heavy gains in the performance department with this driver. According to AMD's testing with a RX 6700XT, the title will achieve a 13% performance boost with the latest driver when playing at 4K using the Very High preset.

      While World War Z: Aftermath (September 21) and New World (September 28) didn't get their driver performance benefits detailed, it is a recommended install for the duo as well.

      The fixed issues of this drier are as follows:

      Here are the known issues to keep an eye out for:

      The Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.9.2 optional driver can now be downloaded via the Radeon Settings app on Windows or the links on the official release notes page. Official support for Windows 11 (including early builds) landed with the 21.9.1 driver last week, which means this latest release is fully supported for Microsoft's latest operating system as well.

      Halo and Star Wars get major discounts in this week's Deals with Gold
      by Asher Madan

      Every week, Microsoft and select publishers discount a number of titles for a weekly Deals with Gold sale. This week, games from the Assassin's Creed, Forza, Halo, and Star Wars 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. If you still only have an Xbox 360, you're out of luck this week because the selection is the slimmest I've ever seen.

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

      Next Halo Infinite playtest is open across two weekends offering Arena and BTB
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      343 Industries is readying the next round of technical tests for Halo Infinite, and this time, it will open an early build of the game across two weekends. Halo Insiders on Xbox and PC will be able to join these expanded sessions on September 23 through 26 as well as September 30 through October 3 for full player versus player multiplayer action.

      Other than hunting for bugs, the studio is looking to stress its online services with these mass sessions, so the invite pool this time is massive. The available content won't be the same across the two weekends either, with the first focusing on 4v4 Arena while the second will roll out the newly expanded 12vs12 Big Team Battle (BTB) to the mix.

      To further stress the servers, matchmaking will only be open across 10am - 2pm PT and 5pm - 9pm PT. Here's the full schedule:

      The rest of the flight's content— Training Mode, Weapon Drills, Battle Pass, and Customization — will remain operational even when the matchmaking for multiplayer is down between sessions.

      Without waiting till the last minute, confirmation emails are already being sent out to eligible Insiders, a process that can take up to two days to roll out completely. This technical test involves everyone who meets the build's internal minimum specifications and completed the sign-up process correctly as a Halo Insider before September 13. However, for those who missed out, Insider signups are still open for a chance to join the second weekend.

      Activision Blizzard under investigation by American Securities and Exchange Commission
      by Asher Madan

      The Wall Street Journal has reported that the American Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is investigating Activision Blizzard for a wide range of possible violations. Recently, a number of employees who worked for the company made allegations of discrimination and sexual misconduct. While the SEC's mission is to protect investors and maintain efficient markets, it does have the authority to look into incidents of discrimination and sexual misconduct, particularly the way they were handled by Activision Blizzard.

      The Wall Street Journal said the following in its report. The outlet managed to view documents pertaining to the investigation first-hand.

      It's unclear what the outcome of this investigation will be, but we'll keep you posted as soon as more details emerge. Typically, the SEC takes months to look into a company, so don't expect a report anytime soon. Given the restrictions with COVID-19, it may take longer.
