    you deserve a monument! (add Edge, which is chromium based and the chrome extensions work on it)

    Age of Empires III Definitive Edition started to download today, 35GB, should be out tomorrow.

    Can't wait! It's the Age of Empires game I missed 'cos I purchased it digital on Impulse -Gamestop virtual store, which was closed- some years after, and tomorrow I am going to start playing it intensely.

    it's been a while ever since I felt sooooooo excited about playing a game. I can't wait to play it, but it's late and I want to sleep. Tomorrow, however...., this baby is gonna know what love is.

    The only thing I've done for now has is booting it and this is what it tells me about the hardware - the CPU is a 3700X and the GPU is a relatively sad 1060 3GB that with that VRAM is one limitation after another, but well, it's a fast and low-power GPU-

    My favourite Halo ever -while not being the biggest fan of Halo I like the franchise-, Halo 4, comes out to gamepass PC November 17th.

    Not worth sullying your memory of the series. It's awful before 343i proved capable of making the even more awful Halo 5.

    mmm...... for me... Halo CE, Reach, Halo 3, ODST, Halo 2

    ODST was a nice change of pace, but the open world could get a little boring IMO. I suggest just playing it in order of release anyway. There are a couple of levels I really don't like in Halo 3, while Reach was pretty solid all the way through hence my ranking there. There are a couple set pieces in Halo 3 that are really great though.

    Always better in co-op if you don't mind the lag (depending on who is host).

    I had a free 3 month trial and some games would not install (rage 2, wolfenstein youngblood) and the error message was just "there has been an unexpected error"
    plus Microsoft "Do not deny me access to my own hard drive"!!!!

    I was having those issues last year. Seems to be sorted out now, for me at least.
