    Crackdown 3 - February 15th, 2019

    This really doesn't deserve the kicking it's got. I can see why some people might not... I dunno, 'get' it as it very much is a throwback to a time before we got everything including the kitchen sink thrown into our modern video games. It's simple and pared back as an open world sandboxy type deal can be, but that doesn't mean it's bad. Let's keep stirring the shit and make another RDR2 comparison, shall we? I haven't bothered with RDR2 because it sounds like a lot of effort. Both the praise and criticism it's gotten just make it sound like it's a proper investment of time and effort and understanding systems and fighting with controls and oh dear god I do not have the time or patience for that. When I get around to it I might find it a transcendent experience but life's way too full of bullshit at the minute to have my hobby feel like a chore for umpty bump hours while I find out if it is a worthwhile investment of time or not. Crackdown 3 is the diametric opposite of effort. I knew what I was doing from the off because I did it twelve years ago and I do not fucking care because it's what I need in gaming right now. It's fun and it's effortless and I am entirely on board with that.

    Lol for not reading to the end of the thread. Ignore me.

    Yeah I forget about that.

    It does seem bizarre to hang back to launch day to deploy a patch for a game that's already balls deep in being played, unless the fuckery involved with certification means it would be Friday anyway.

    It's reload and interact so yeah pretty important. Not checked if it can be remapped.
  7. I wonder what kind of drop off they've seen in Blackout since Apex came out.

    Fuel was great fun. I forgot it's BC.

    For all my doubts I'm still thinking about buying it. I really want to see where the go with it, and how they turn it around from what's already perceived as a failure. Eurogamer just put their impressions up which pretty much tally with my own. I'd just hate for the potential to be squandered or not even given the chance.

    If that's the one above Normal I'll see if I can knock it up.

    Far Cry New Dawn

    Apologies for the stream of consciousness of this post but this game's so fucking weird. In the main, so far, it's piss easy until you randomly get some arsehole with a rocket launcher who just volleys you into next week out of nowhere. The resources are so abundant you wonder why there's an option to buy packs of them with currency bought with real world money. Why would you? I absolutely do not give a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut about Prosperity and its inhabitants but I do want to feed Mickey and Lou their own feet because by Christ they're annoying, which as bad guys I guess means they're doing their job. Also, I just re-got the gun I started the game with. I'm presuming it's a better version but I'm not sure. It's odd, I feel like I'm just coasting around doing shit for shits and giggles without any real agency which I guess is the point of Far Cry games? Recruit some people, get some Ethanol to upgrade shit, liberate an outpost, kill a bear with a gun that fires saw blades, pet my dog sidekick. I've still loads to try out; I've not done any expeditions yet and I've prioritised getting the extra characters as side kicks before doing the story and I've found 3 more Outposts to liberate. It's fun. I only have vague recollection of playing Far Cry 4, 5 never dropped enough to take a punt on but from what I've read this sounds like New Dawn is more fun anyway because they turned up the stupidity. Tearing around in a muscle car listening to 60's surf music and popping truck drivers in the head with a pistol is wonderfully idiotic. Anyway, here's a picture of me and Timber loaded up and truckin'. We're going to do what they say can't be done.

    I'm a bit worried that it's too easy on normal as the pulse beam is bent as shit. I just presumed the difficulty ramps up later.

    I guess the one plus side to staggered releases means the reviews should be pretty comprehensive as the online components will have been live for a least a week.

    I found I'd firmly got my eye in when it unlocked the airdash. Jump jump air dashing like a motherfucker.

    Far Cry New Dawn

    It kicks off straight away. Very little fucking about. Got to say I'm struggling to give a fuck about anything going on, but I've just got a dog sidekick so I'm invested now.
