    I sort of would like to give this a go a bit before the big patch to see how far they've come. Though this weekend is tight for me.

    Understand, been busy myself. I haven't played in weeks. Sad considering I have a new XB1X & it hasn't got much play time yet. BTW, I have all 3 SKUs now(almost 1 for each family member). Guess my youngest son is next. LOL The last couple of weeks I've been working on moving all the TVs & Xboxes, plus mounting all the TVs to the walls. Now I can relax & just play. That is until the wife has more home improvement projects. ;)

    I hadn't read about all the updates since the last time we played, but I still have the following wishes:
    • 4 player crew on the middle size boat (3 player)
    • 6 to 8 player crew on the large size boat (4 player)
    • 8 to 16 player crew on an even larger boat.
    The large boat feels more than 2x the size of the 3 player ship and so overwhelming for a crew of 4.

    No. There's no way I'm making it without some help. I have a lot of doubloons that I could trade-in to help get me closer, but not enough to max out all 3 companies. I think I'm going to try to take another stab at it though.

    Yeah, I haven't heard any news on those kind of changes. Though I could see them make a larger boat. Personally I'm fine with the current set. Just hard to get real friends together. Playing with randoms can be a crapshoot.

    A wooden submarine could be neat. Stock up on explosive barrels to use as depth charges of a sort.

    .........someday.

    Details released this week on The Hunter's Call trading company which now includes hunting, fishing & cooking. Man, this is going to be awesome. It's another way to get to Pirate Legend too!

    Wished I could play this weekend. Going to be out of town with family. Next weekend looks better I hope.

    Reviews on Tall Tales are very good so far.
    Anyone booted up the anniversary patch yet?

    Lets form a crew!

    Actually they have corrected the time zone to Pacific Daylight Time now. So an extra 8 hours to log in...

    It says login & get in a play session but it might take up to 72 hours to see it added to your profile.

    Got it. Guess they didn't have a notification of sorts.

    edit: Btw, a shark was trying to eat me while I was trying to take a screenshot. Oddly, it had a bunch of arrows in it already.

    Man, been along time since I posted anything. Looks like it's Steam now..



    I would like to get back into this for the story content, but it's really hard by yourself. If anybody is up for a play this weekend let me know.
