    Ah ! Finished it again, with differents choices that 7-8 years ago, It's crazy that the game is so totally different. Anyway, I'll wait the W3 remaster to import this save game.

    Started Assassins Creed Odyssey a few days back (yes I realise I'm 2 years behind everyone else). I must say that I wasn't a fan of the idea of making it full RPG but having started playing it I can safely say I'm converted. It's bloody brilliant! I'm in two minds at the moment as to whether I prefer it to the Witcher 3 but I'm pretty sure I prefer it over the previous AC game styles which I'm also a big fan of. And I know for sure I haven't put this many hours into a game in such a short period for a long time. Possibly not since W3 or perhaps even Skyrim.

    Graphically I find it default graphics too saturated on my non-HDR monitor but very nice on my HDR OLED TV. It's something I've noticed recently that in some HDR enabled games the colours don;t come out quite right on non HDR enabled displays. That said, I've got a custom enb preset running on the monitor so it actually looks better there than it does on the TV in HDR now. The mod won't carry over well to the HDR TV though so it's one or the other. For now I'm enjoying the variety!

    I've never played any Assassin's Creed games. I'm interested in the Odyssey. To what degree is my experience lessened if any by not having played the previous games?

    In Odyssey, not at all as far as I've been able to see so far. Aside from some shared general gameplay mechanics the later games are pretty much standalone games.

    Trying to get again into fallen order after finishing GoW, I tried to play once and I didn't really remember why I did stop. Now I remember, with a 6600k it's a stuttery mess. Got RivaTuner on and saw it saturates the 4 cores every now and then, limiting the frameate to 30 fps helps but doesn't remove the stutters completely ... :(

    The Witcher 2. The beginning is a drag. Too cinematic, too tutorialesque. It's been a long time and I still feel like I'm in a tutorial. The combat is different...

    Iirc in W1 you could make potions and take them when you want
    in W2 you have to make and take them at a campfire the problem is when your at a campfire you dont know if you will be engaging in combat anytime soon
    so your left with the choice of be cautious or take potions at every campfire just in case you engage in combat before they wear off.

    Edit: yes ive remembered it sort of correctly (from the Witcher wiki page)
    It's still a great game though dont let my posts put you off....

    Bloodrayne Terminal Cut, just started yesterday and it's hard to get back in the swing of it. I loved the original, and this is pretty much exactly the original with updated graphics...I just forgot how limited and weird the controls could be on the first one.

    I'll get used to it and be in to it soon, got the sequel too since I know that's the better of the two. :D

    This live game of DOTA2 between Secret and OG is insane. The level of play is amazing to watch.

    Just picked these up today, in preparation for next week's cards arrival. Great deals on Hellblade, Gears 5, Vampyr and Mass Effect: Andromeda Deluxe Edition ($9.99 each). I could have gotten Cyberpunk 2077 for $40 through cdkeys, but I didn’t want to deal with another store game-launcher (GOG).

    OMG THANKS A BUNCH! didn't know hellblade on sale! grabbing it nowwww

    Steam's store front page is pretty useless for me since i bought together vr. Despite i only played it ONCE, the store became plastered with porn 2D games visual novel thingy on front page.

    EDIT:
    LOL hellblade is cheaper than a super short indie VR game

    holy molly!~ Hellblade in VR is amazing!

    A must-have for those that enjoy a great vr experience (as the gameplay still the same as 2D version)

    Mass Effect: Andromeda is very underrated imo. With all the patches, it runs well. No it's not as good and deep as the main trilogy, yes some content is cut, but I had a lot of fun doing it anyway. And it's a beautiful game.
