    Damn I love FFXV. It's very vram demanding, I picked at 17.8gb allocated at one point :D It's a beautiful game on PC, and I like the mechanics more and more...

    Installed csgo for the first time last night. I haven't played counter strike since Source many years ago. Just played casual on dust2 and I absolutely dominated. Was appalled by how terrible most of the competition was, mmr must be putting me in the noobest servers there are

    There was the obligatory hacker, a little kid who actually admitted to having hax. Why not? Since its free now he'll be back on in a second.

    I'd rather play against good bots (like in the unreal series)
    than most people

    I'm playing BallisticNG right now. I like it quite a lot. I also own "Red Out: Enhanced Edition" which offers an interesting control scheme and prettier graphics.
    May be it is nostalgia but it is just feel great like the old WipeOut while being more forgiving. Better than the WipeOut I tried on the PSP. The graphic are dated and there is a lovely retro option.
    Red Out control scheme is actually pretty great but so far the track design and overall experience did not caugh me as much as Ballistic (could also be familiarity). Red out feels more like a greatly improved F-Zero than a WipeOut game. BallisticNG catches the ball where the three first iterations of the Wipe OUt series left it (/PS1 era). The nostalgia afflicted fans have to love it ;)

    8€ well spent.

    Is it meant to be a sequel to the original Ballistics?


    ps: I've just got Antigraviator it may be up your alley

    I can't tell. The graphics are close between Ballisitics and BallisticNG: same style and dated though one is purposefully a retro not demanding games.

    LTTP but KOTOR. It so feels like Mass Effect 0.2.

    Somehow it has a better inventory system. :V The story and character stuff was a lot better too IIRC.

    Be sure to install the community patch when you get to KOTOR2. Can be easily installed from Steam workshop.

    Thanks, I'm playing on macOS and they macOS port of KOTOR2 is better out of the box than the Windows game because it arrived so late. I'm enjoying KOTOR but just, like Mass Effect, sometimes you just want to move the story on and there can be a bit too more running around.

    It is making me want to return to Mass Effect Andromeda and finish that off.

    Yeah, I was LTTP for Mass Effect 1, 2 and 3 as well and remember the UI in ME1 and ME2 being egregiously bad. The slightly less unintuitive UI are still evident but it's not stopping me enjoying KOTOR and the loading speed is near instant.

    I don't have KOTOR2 yet. Did KOTOR2 on Windows support mods? If so, the Mac version will likely support the same mod standard. If the Windows version didn't, the Mac version likely doesn't either.

    Path of Exile.
    Apparently had made level 1 character long time ago, so didn't even have to do hard selecting part.

    Back in to Elite: Dangerous. It's much improved after the major patch just before Christmas. I hit Elite in trade a few weeks ago, working on Elite in exploration right now. This game has a special place in my heart, as I played the original back in 1984 on my BBC Micro (Acornsoft were the bomb, best video games ever).

    I placed a pre-order in January for a VKB Kosmosima to replace my TM16000M, which is OK but doesn't the world alight. Didn't know it was possible to spend that much money on a joystick but now I know better. Just need to find a throttle that's better than the TM jobbie.

    Seriously considering a VR setup just for this game (apparently it is transformational), but feeling that the current generation of gear hasn't yet hit the spot.

    Not my vid, but:
