    Thief II: The Metal Age. So fun! I love lurking around in dark places, picking locks... trying to be quiet. The setting and story are cool, too.

    Been playing too much of Bloons TD 6. Who would have thought that popping balloons with Monkeys would be so fun. :p

    Awesome! One of the games on my all time greatest games list.

    Eloyc - The P.C Gaming Gods have decided that after T2 you must continue your worship by playing T2X: Shadows of the Metal Age

    Thanks! Maybe I'll try this one before playing the third one.

    BTW, what game did you like more, the first one or the second one?

    I'm not Davros, but I liked the first game more. It had just the right mix of undead, pagan and hammerite missions and plot is the best in the series. Metal Age lost all the horror aspect of the first game. It retains top notch level design and mechanics though.

    Oh, I really liked the scary stuff in the first game... So now I know that there's none of it in the second one (just a bit in a few places, maybe, and definitely creepy in many other places). That's spoiler! :mrgreen:

    @Silent_Buddha, and your favourite?

    I loved both of them equally. :) And the first 2 more than the 3rd.

    Does staring at the Mass Effect Legendary Edition unlock timer count?

    So on my travels to various charity shops i picked up the following
    F1 2012 got it home and it has a steam key which will no doubt be used, no problem though as I also have it on steam and it's nice to have a physical copy
    StarWars Rogue Squadron
    DCS BlackShark - Helicopter Simulator
    Tom Clancy's HAWX - What I'm really after is HAWX 2 you cant buy this anywhere not even from ubisoft (they sell hawx-1)
    Prey - The original from 2006
    Battlecruiser Millennium - Yes I know how awful this game is, that's why I bought it ;)
    Not sure what I paid but it was less than £10 for all of them

    Hey we can all dream ;)

    Is anybody else (re)playing Mass Effect Legendary Edition? I've not revisited the original Mass Effect for soooo long. I was never a fan of the classic Bioware dice/RNG/RPG combat mechanics so the changes made to the first game really work for me - plus much needed changes to the UI. It is a shame they could not offer both original and new mechanics (like Total War Rome Remastered) for those who preferred the original approach but c'est la vie..

    SB - no comment necessary :nope:

    You can't get away with just putting in a SB disclaimer. :twisted:

    That said, listening to some people who have played some of it. The remaster is disappointing in ways other than EA should be burned to the ground for turning ME into a shooter series.

    I'm hearing that the only remastered bits are the first sections in the games and then the graphics for the rest of the games are basically almost unchanged.

    Likewise, I'm also hearing that content has been removed from some of the games.

    That said, because of my well known feelings about the direction that EA took the games, I haven't really been following them. Just hearing what streamers have said while I watch them play other games.

    As to having the option of both styles of play (RPG or Shooter), that would be nice, but considering almost all of the RPG focused personnel that made Bioware great are gone, I have no faith that Bioware can actually do justice in putting RPG mechanics into the later ME games. Hell, I don't even have faith that Bioware can even make a good RPG anymore.

    Regards,
    SB

    I bought ME:LE on PS4 (running on PS5), previously I played ME1-3 on PC with controller and texture mods (MEUITM for ME1 and ME2). I just finished Virmire and the game looks better than the modded original on PC. There is simply no comparison so it's definitely not true that Bioware only remastered the first parts of the games. :nope:

    I only played the base games without DLC but I've not noticed anything missing but have had missions I don't recall which are probably DLC. EA were upfront about the Pinnacle Station DLC being omitted because the data for this DLC was corrupted ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Pinnacle station was one of the things. There was some other things mentioned that I don't remember. One thing that I did remember was a lot of anger that an extended a** shot of Miranda (I think it was Miranda) was cut. :p I imagine the infamous camel toe shot was likely cut or modified as well. :D

    This stuff doesn't bother me because it was frankly, just creepy. Knowing they made the Miranda arse-cam changes I was surprised when a similar shot in ME1 of the Consort walking up the stairs look unchanged. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I've been playing Subnautica: Below Zero as I loved the first one. The truck concept is ok, not as epic as getting the Goliath but definitely versatile.

    I also just started playing Snowrunner since it came out on Game pass PC. I liked Mudrunner with the little I played it and this is definitely an evolution and improvement on the game structure.
