    I blew through Shadow of the Tomb Raider over the past week. Solid gameplay. Story was kinda weird given that everything is Lara's fault in the beginning, but it seemed to only really come together in the last few hours of the game in terms of the story. Overall, it seemed to be a substantial improvement over the previous games for the gameplay pacing & I actually got around to the tombs this time (I was completely apathetic while playing the second game in the trilogy).

    ----

    Also blew through Prey the other week. Pretty solid Bioshock-in-space, pretty much. Loved the art direction too. The DLC probably wasn't worth getting, but I guess it's deserved money for the developer considering I waited so long. If I knew how great the SP was, I probably would have gotten it day one.

    It's just too bad they decided to use the Prey name considering the lineage/history of development. Seemed like it should have been a new IP altogether.

    Quite enjoyed the twist and the gameplay, although things were really confusing and overwhelming at the start once things started to open up. The waypoint system was serviceable after a while, but I can see how complicated it probably was in trying to make it function at all due to the game world.

    I can not tell you how much this annoys/bothers me. I loved the original Prey, it caught me off-guard when it came out and blew me away! When I heard about this I couldn't figure out if it was a remake or a sequel, to find out it had absolutely nothing to do with it was devastating. :( (Ok, so I'll survive the emotional hurt and it probably won't affect my life very much...but it felt like suck on the inside for a bit!)

    Finally got Doom for $15 Steam winter sale. It is super fun and runs well over 100fps max settings 1080p on my GTX970 lol.

    I had to look that up on YouTube and that is not a game, that is an image viewer with a clicky UI.

    I was taking a walk, the wind whistled all through the night and other welsh hymns, suddenly my attention was drawn to a burning shrubbery by the howl of a very gifted bat. It was the Gaming Gods and they commanded me to replay the Dead Space Trilogy.
    So I'm nearly at the end of Ds1 and really enjoyed it. I did use a trainer to give me $1million to to save me not having to traverse the levels and going to the shop multiple times picking up ammo and health drops because of limited inventory space.

    I was hoping they would have an upgrade path specifically for the leg/boot in the sequels.

    For reasons.

    Me and the wife have been paying Lotr: Shadows of War here lately and it's been a blast. First game since Borderlands 2 to hook us.

    It wouldn't happen to be because you ran in that game about as fast as my mother can? She's 76 and has trouble walking...

    Hopefully you can understand after this. ;)

    I feel it's the sort of reactionary response one should have in this highly stressly environment, and that ought to demand tech upgrades for the boot. :eek: :mrgreen:

    Decided to play Dishonoured 2
    Not enjoying it because i've become too interested in the stats
    and I'm constantly quick saving and quick loading because i'm obsessed with the
    "times spotted by an enemy" stat (currently at zero) and its destroying my enjoyment of the game,
    I should just say f**k it and play it the way I want to play.

    I am playing Re-Legion. That's the game where you have to make your own cult, find new followers and fight with other leaders. Nevel played religion games before, so it's fresh enough, but I expected more. Looking for new followers is boring enough after first 30 minutes. Don't know If I'll finish it.

    Be prepared to spend a lot of time running between pick ups and the shop

    Sorry but its go to safe house, empty inventory.
    knock out police steal his smg and pistol - rinse repeat
    when inventory full go to gun dealer and sell everything - rinse repeat
    After reading Roderic's post I fired up Deus Ex and remembered I'd lost all my save games
    because of an upgrade and o/s re-install so it looks like I'll be playing it myself...

    Edit slight mistake:
    You can only pick up 1 of every weapon if you pick up a pistol and you have a pistol you just get additional ammo, so it's a visit to the weapons dealer after every weapon pickup

    This is the reason I love cheatengine, to avoid the grinding in single-player games. :)

    I've enjoyed both new Deus Ex games. Good story and nice stealth mechanics outweigh grinding.

    But now I'm just waiting for Cyberpunk 2077 and play Wolfenstein II TNC to tie me over!

    I'm really disapointed in Deus Ex Mankind Divided....
    I've visited several women's toilets and not been told off once :(
