Shadow of the Tomb Raider atm.

It has that old school frustration element down to a tee.
Jump-Die, Drop-Die, Drop & Use Axe-Die, Run & Jump & Use Axe-Die.........look around, spot something you missed-Live

I must have watched her getting chewed up by wolves about 30 times before I figured out it was quicker to hit Reload Last Checkpoint.  ;)

£33 off GreenManGaming the other week.

Rise of the Tomb Raider?
They're quite similar, but i think you can push this one graphically further if you have the right setup.
I'm running it sort of High @ 2440x1440 on a 4K monitor and it looks pretty good.

It looks gorgeous and that's a fact, but those wall jumps can be really tricky until you get the hang of it.It's a darker story which verges on survival horror at times.

I may have mentioned this before, but due to Steam using some weird local currency exchange rate, I managed to get Shadow for US$17 on pre-order which I simply couldn't let pass up.
In fact, I just checked again today and it's still 660 pesos which is getting cheaper every time the peso loses ground to the dollar in the latest financial crisis. Today I could get it for $16.
The last time this happened with another game, a few weeks later they adjusted the price upwards.

FIFA 19, the new iteration of the football franchise

Can’t play FUT within the game until the new internet arrives, unless I want to wait XX  amount of hours of trying to update it

Reinstalled Tribes 2 from year 2000!!! its freeware now and only 500mb i think it was amazing game after 18 years so fast and frenetic!
I remember when it came out we all struggled to play it on max graphics as you needed more than a top spec pc to play it! now it runs a dream on top settings and the fans on my gfx card dont even start up  :cheesy: :laugh:

You could probably stick a screwdriver through your GFX card PCB and it'd still run.  :cheesy:

Intriguing, I saw a guy on YouTube, and he wasn't so much as playing the game, but just trading players and doing Squad Building Challenges. And he was raking in the coins and getting rare players

Downloaded Destiny 2 yesterday as its free to download till the 18th November and so far have to say am mightily impressed they are giving this game away for free!!!! It's got a good story and looks amazing I totally recommend it as its free to be honest now i  have tried it i would have paid for it to!!! there are expansion packs so may look at those once i have completed the main game.

Been playing Overwatch's The walking dead the past week. very good game as long as theres 4 of you who are on coms, would hate to play it with complete strangers! as its all about teamwork!
Title: Re: What are you Playing?

Main game for me still Tanks, then BF1, Cod WW2.  Soon to be BF5 & Insurgency Sandstorm.
Title: Re: What are you Playing?
Post by: [PCF]Falcs on November 15, 2018, 02:13:39 PM
been back to tanks a couple of times this week but world of warships, destiny 2 and the walking dead are more favorable for me a the moment. Insurgency 2 does look good mind is it PVE to as that's what i used to play most of with insurgency 1
Title: Re: What are you Playing?

Tanks still, and losing as usual. Depressing.

BF5 as well for me at moment, had to rebind all my keys as normally play Medic using a syringe which is one of the gadget slots. Know it's a bit more tricky i find. Early days. but still a thumbs up from me.
Title: Re: What are you Playing?
Post by: Splinter on December 12, 2018, 12:51:40 PM
I refunded Just Cause 4, as they haven't finished it yet and you can't rebind WASD and other movement keys. The graphics are also crap.
Grabbed Tom Clancy's The Division on Steam at 75% off. I've been meaning to get this game for ages, but waited till they'd ironed out the glitches.
It's tough as hell, with enemies being bullet sponges, but if the cover system is used correctly, you can progress. It also looks fantastic, it's very well polished and performance is silky smooth.

Yeah i played quite a lot of The division when it came out really enjoyed it although it got to a point of a bit of a grind as the enemies were so damned hard but that was in the parts after the main storyline. It was worth getting just for the main storyline to be honest plenty of hours in there so was worth it.

Overwatch.


That's about it.
Tried getting into the new Assassin's Creed but it's shit and far too current for a comfortable cynic like me. Bring back the days when there was no choice but to be a man as the main hero and women were scantily clad and knew their rightful place.

Far Cry 5 is on sale for 19.99 in the steam sale is this worth it? (wooster??)
Title: Re: What are you Playing?
Post by: Wooster on December 21, 2018, 07:50:56 PM
Aye.  :cool:
The one wee annoyance I found was that the planes are quite hard to use with KB/M and I needed to use a controller.

The helicopters are fine though and you'll use them more.  :smiley:

Post by: [PCF]Falcs on December 28, 2018, 06:36:53 PM
Still havent decided whether to purchase far cry 5 it has a lot of mixed reviews on steam
I did love far cry 1 2 3 and 4 though.....
Title: Re: What are you Playing?
Post by: Wooster on December 28, 2018, 07:41:18 PM
It's not as good as 3 was, but on a par with 4 I'd say.
Lots of people base their opinions on the storyline alone, but I always tried to avoid that for as long as possible in 3 and 4 so that I can get tooled up and have some fun before jumping back onto the tracks.

5 is the same, the side missions are the best parts of the game...and there's loads of them.  :cool:

Bit the bullet and downloading now!

There are a few mods on Nexus for it.
I might give realistic shaders a go.
Title: Re: What are you Playing?
Post by: Splinter on December 30, 2018, 11:39:30 AM
I've reached level 10 in The Division and the enemies do become less bullet-spongey, now at least. It's great for frantic shooting when you're in the mood and I do like the cover system. I bought it on 85% off when I refunded Just Cause 4, which I may pick up again when it comes down to $5.
Title: Re: What are you Playing?
Post by: [PCF]Falcs on December 30, 2018, 01:38:19 PM
Damn far cry 5 looks good am running on ultra and get at least 50fps i cant run the hd textures unfortunatly as they take the vram over what i have on my card :( its still one of the best looking games out there
Enjoyed the intro mission bits got you into the story really well.

Fired up Subnautica again, for the first time in a fortnight....and it's still soooo fucking grindy  :cry:

If I fire it up again I'm just hitting the fucking console so that I can find out if anything else is worth doing.
The forums always say "go deeper", but it's always just as boring.

So, it's got 24hrs of gameplay in it (i reckon), then it's just more of the same.
