    Still punking the cybers on PS5. 33 hours in. I think this is going to take a while to finish because the side missions are so good I can't pass them up.

    Control X1X

    Enjoyed the first hour.
    Hated the entire rest of the game.

    Started Front Mission 3 again.
    Been very long time from the last attempt which ended In some city and frustration.

    Really like the structure of the game, talking bits, internet etc.
    Clear seperation of combat areas and rest of the game, IMHO something that is sorely missed in many modern games which try to cram everything in same view. (usually causing a lot of extra work for devs.)

    It is really shame that FR4 or 5 didn't come to Europe.

    I'm on Act 3.2 of Gears Tactics on Experienced difficulty without having any Gear downed. Loving the game.

    I'm looking forward to The Medium on the 28th and might spend some time in Forza Horizon 4 and Ori WotW while I'm waiting.

    I really need to finish Gears 5 & Ori 2. After finishing Jedi Fallen Order I have been playing lots of co-op in Deep Rock Galactic. Then took a break to do some co-op in Horizon 4. Last Holiday sale I finally gave up waiting for Rise of the Tomb Raider to hit Game Pass again & bought the 20th Anniversary Edition for $6. Now I have to find time to work on that too. :/

    Mopping up the last few collectables in Valhalla. Just platinum'd man eater and have fallen back into fallout 4. And still hitting Warframe in between.

    With the 60fps PS5 Skyrim mod, I bough Skyrim again (PS3, Steam, PS4/PS5) in the PSN sale, loaded it up with my standard mod load-out and set off to play it at 4K 60fps on console.

    Stealth archer here I inevitably come again. I am definitely going to tone down stealth and archery and pivot into some thievery and backstabbing this time though.

    :D Skyrim, I bought that on PS3, PS4, PSVR, and then the Switch. It's like the game equivalent of herpes. Once you've got it, you can't get rid of it...

    ... and every now and then, it'll elicit an itch that needs scratching.

    Its a blast i remember playing it at 4k 60 (and other mods) on my 980 at the time.
    8k 60 with about every graphic enhancing mod avialable. Theres many mods for this game that elevate the settings, not just the resolution and framerates.

    8k textures, total raw size is about 1TB!. Even ray tracing made it to this version.

    Yeah, it's a sad thing that I've just blown ~£3k on a new PC (first none work one in years) and Skyrim will probably be the first game I play on it :D

    Try the above mod (s) in the youtube link, its one of the most extreme ones i have tried. The biggest problem is the need for a 1TB SSD to be able to stream the world with its 8k and 4k textures. Im not playing at 8k (dont have an 8k tv) but 4k, way above 60fps. Its a old game in its roots (and it shows in some places and characters), but with all those mods, dynamic volumitric lighting and ray tracing this one still holds up. And, its all free if you bought the game many moons ago.

    Holy crap, I had forgotten I bought it on PSVR last year!! Whilst sword combat using the bow felt fantastic I just could not get on with the movement mechanism. So yeah, I've bought Skyrim four times. I did look slyly at it on Switch and probably would have bought it if I was still travelling as much as I was in 2019.

    I played it for a bit in vr but the floaty movement actually managed to make me feel quite sick after a while, the only game that has done that. I managed to make it slightly less vomit inducing by jumping everywhere to try and stimulate some head bob and that worked for a while. But it's a pain to play like that!

    The game also supports teleportation for movement though, and that certainly helps.

    I tried both movement control schemes and couldn't get on with either. Combat was tremendous though, so much fun.

    I'm now on Red Dead Redemption 2 - having realised I bought this for the PS4 when it came out and never really looked at it. Seems pretty slick on the PS5 though there are a few graphical glitches - especially when entering dark spaces.

    If you've playing it long enough not to hate the controls, you'll probably like the game. I finished it at launch over a week or so and really enjoyed it although the controls were a barrier to some activities. Every time I've tried to re-play it, I just have given up in frustration of the controls.
