It was the same with Far Cry 5 on my Phenom 965 and I kicked up a stink on the Ubisoft forums just as I did with the ridiculous Lighting Service being flagged as cheating. That issue was rectified eventually, but from what I read, it's not the game that won't run without SSE4, but the cheat software itself, although I stand to be corrected on that.
Heh, interesting. Tho no worries there, FC3 is my thing if I play a FC game.

The Division is probably the most exciting shooter I've played and it keeps you on your toes to take care during all the missions because in some of them that don't have checkpoints if you die you respawn back at a safe house. That can be really frustrating if you've been at it for a while, with one careless move ruining it all.
But in the end, the satisfaction of beating what may have seemed an impossible boss or overwhelming odds, make this game highly addictive. That's why I'm gunning for level 30, but according to many, nothing much happens after you reach that magic number.
It's beautiful and intricately designed game and although I have The Division 2, I'm holding back from grinding through that one until I've got the most out of this one. Preferably when I can come up against the big bosses and at least be able to blow them away with a couple of headshots. :)

And... I bought Desperados III. Saving after each kill is absolutely necessary. I've already messed up twice (so far).

Better kill them with a knife, for a quick and silent death. Hand-to-hand is silent too but you have to tie them up and that takes time.

YAAAAAASSSSS! High five! I can now rationalize my seasonal obsession with all of that thanks to you. :laugh:

Gopher puts out some really helpful stuff, patience of a saint. The general greater modding world owes him a huge debt for taking the time to explain things in ways that make sense and thus getting people deeper into it.

Immersive weapons is practically a requirement. And you’re right, Interesting NPC’s is pretty good and well-developed, but it is not on Inigo’s level. To be fair, nothing is on Inigo’s level!! To have him as a follower ruins one forever on what NPC’s can be.

I'm thinking about getting this but I already have a massive backlog so it will have to wait. Too bad that boxed version lacks extras that Shadow Tactics had in its Shogun Edition like postcards, map, behind the scenes book etc. Grabbed that one on sale for something like $15. Instead there's collectors edition that has the same extras plus some stupid figurines for $150.

Bought more games (12~14) during the Steam sale. STILL doing the downloading on wifi via laptop because it gets around 14 MB/s and more through Steam. (Backup and Restore is BOSS.) Really want to buy ELITE: Dangerous but have no Saitek flightstick which mirrors the design in-game. Played this at friends houses too on their spare accounts.

Been playing a lot of Valorant these days. Just picked up Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and Undertale from the Steam sale. Hellblade is fun so far, very immersive audio and the visuals look great. Combat is meh but I knew about that going in.

I’ve been playing the TW Saga Thrones of Britain. It seems a perfect fit after bingeing The Last Kingdom for the last week on Netflix.

For all the bad reviews it got that kept me playing it for the two years it has been out, I’m actually enjoying it quite a lot. Plus it scratches The Last Kingdom itch.

Finished Code Vein yesterday.
Much waifu, occasional cringy scene, well in fact, I did skip the vast majority of them due to cringe overload. Its weird, man. Long drawn out scenes looking at faces with puppy eyes. Culmination of the story: more puppy eyes, flashy lights, you finally escape into the big unknown... and game is over. They even make it seem as though you're about to embark on something bigger only to let the credits roll. :mad:

Combat is good though, its like a Dark Souls for dummies, lots of build options though it all came down to FIonn's Red Shoes for me, combined with Cleansing Light and just mashing the light attack button. What do you mean tactics and timing? Stagger resist, high armor and a greatsword, that's wsup. The min-max game is neat. Last half dozen bosses fell in under 30 seconds, with 1500-2k damage swings :D

Don't take this game too seriously even if it tries to do so itself. Make a lol build and play around, death penalty is non existant anyway.

What am I playing now?... I'm actually back into paper Magic The Gathering again. Built a cycling deck, played against some friends, got hooked.

Started my favourite Game from this month's Humble Choice. Grid (2019) is a nice pick up and play racing game. The tracks may be limited but the racing is so tight that you will enjoy it. I started on Saturday and I am at level 20. If you are looking for a racing sim though look elsewhere as the tuning is not there or my favourite tracks (Spa and Bathurst) but it still is enjoyable.

The Division is probably the most exciting shooter I've played and it keeps you on your toes to take care during all the missions because in some of them that don't have checkpoints if you die you respawn back at a safe house. That can be really frustrating if you've been at it for a while, with one careless move ruining it all.

Yes, it's shame Spa and Bathurst aren't in this one, but it's still a fun racer, even though it's taken quite a lot of stick from the so-called purists who don't seem to get that it's really an arcade racer.
I also like the Nemesis angle, but that AI isn't quite as homicidal as Grid Autosport. It does feel like demolition derby at times and it's impossible to win a race without a collision. Impossible.

I hit level 28 on The Division last night, but my firepower is still woefully low at DMG 9000 and I would have finished off the Russian Consulate last night if dinner hadn't been served :(

Purists that is what Project Cars 2 is for. You are right the nemesis is a new angle but needs to be better fleshed out. If you want really good weapons try a Dark Zone mission or 2 .

Yes, it's shame Spa and Bathurst aren't in this one, but it's still a fun racer, even though it's taken quite a lot of stick from the so-called purists who don't seem to get that it's really an arcade racer.
I also like the Nemesis angle, but that AI isn't quite as homicidal as Grid Autosport. It does feel like demolition derby at times and it's impossible to win a race without a collision. Impossible.

I hit level 28 on The Division last night, but my firepower is still woefully low at DMG 9000 and I would have finished off the Russian Consulate last night if dinner hadn't been served :(
Division 1? Blue ultimate, medkit bonuses and ammo return on headshots, gg. Its really all about a highly accurate rapid fire weapon and constant headshots if you want to dps. The build should just enable as much of that as possible.
Í would advise you to level to cap as soon as possible and dive into multiplayer content or grab those special sets as soon as you can, they really make the game a lot more fun, you can actually develop different playstyles instead of eternal cover hugging. Its pretty deep if you explore the endgame. Don't get burned out from the campaign before trying that is my advice. Farm XP, and go MP. Its not that hard to get nice gear these days either. Couple of intense weeks, probably :)

I'm not sure how different the early XP farming is from launch days but I just ran around town getting collectibles and doing all those events that pop up. That and the constant enemy spawns get you pretty far and its pretty low intensity, so easy to keep up and not die all the time. Its also fun, imo. Exploration is pretty cool, nice scenery and all :p THe missions are pretty hardcore in comparison especially without a half capable ally or two. That is also why you want to cap fast - its the same content, but a bit higher level/dmg and you just get better stuff plus better allies.

division games are ALL about perks and bonuses + weapon handling (hitting as many shots as possible without missing)
if you go for pure dps you gon' die
You need about 35 to 50 minutes of straight Gameplay (not dying until you start a Mission) and like any good RPG you have to upgrade your weapon and gear(constantly). Headshots and your acuity to that skill in this game will determine if you finish the game quickly or not though but it is an extremly kenetic experience some Boss battles are Epic and there is a feature in Division 2 that takes roamng to whole new level.

Some great tips there @Vayra86
Level to cap = reach 30?
To dps? Dps is damage per second, isn't it?
Blue ultimate?

I agree that some of the missions are pretty hardcore, but they are intense in an exciting way. Between times, I'm exploring and taking down gangs opportunistically to build up my XP.
Not far off now, after about 80 hours and thoroughly enjoying it, but I'll leave Div 2 for now.

Started playing MechWarrior 5 a few days ago. Great game, though the characters are rather plain, it's all about the gameplay and missions in the campaign. The last Mech game I seriously played was Earthsiege II (x-th playthrough), so I was stoked to play another one after a long time, and I wasn't disappointed, it's pretty good! Graphics are nice, and you can actually see your damaged Mech after the mission in the hangar, if you got a lot of laser shots on your armor, it will look very burned and molten!

DPS is damage per second. Weapons show you damage numbers, but be aware that number doesn't tell you the whole story. If bullets fly past, its 0 damage. Accuracy is a big thing in the dps number. What also matters bigtime is recoil control and RPM; If you can keep that rapid fire button down and still hit head all the time, that's good. Its not easy though and won't work with every weapon. Try an M4 Police rifle, that sort of stuff was a staple back in the day. They did fix the balance a bit, but still, high RPM/high base damage and low recoil is where its at.

Blue... yeah its a while ago.. Signature skills. :p
Survivor Link :) Its a lifesaver and also enables you to just tank for a while, to get a nasty dude out of the way.

One is None <- key talent
Level cap works in two ways. There are levels and there is a rating that you build after reaching the highest level (30). The ratings divide the playerbase in tiers and each tier yields better (higher item level) drops. Once you hit the first tier you can do the story missions in different ways/at varying difficulties. Finishing the story when you're at 30+ becomes a whole lot easier, and you can then still find the challenging missions but with better teammates and with rewards that actually matter. The skill cap is pretty high in this game, too.

WIth a slight risk of spoiling things, take a look at the bottom end of the Gear page here. Those green sets are what you're going to be gunning for. https://thedivision.fandom.com/wiki/Gear

I've sunk a good 400 hours into this game before I had the idea I'd seen most/all of it... the Dark Zone is also a really cool place to visit nowadays, even for farming gear. Exciting stuff.

We could jump in together sometime, feel free to PM. Gonna have to reinstall though :D
