Black Mesa, Genshin Impact.
Want to install Witcher 3, but running low on SSD storage.

Just found out about Black Mesa recently and I'm having so much fun playing it.
Apparently the team is also currently working on Blue Shift. So excited

After 80+ hours of Sonic and the Secret Rings only now I found this secret location. Bloom effect and music create awesome eerie atmosphere



It turns out it is a pretty good place where I can save 10 seconds so I can get gold medal



Just when I was about to rage quit I said to myself "ok one more time and if mission fails fuck this shit" but it worked out, got gold medal for Chain of Rings mission :D Yeeeeeeeeah! < 17 seconds



Sonic games for Wii require fighter jet pilot's reflexes, maybe it's time to be a pilot lol

I thought i'd give Life is Strange 2 a whirl. It helps if you've got save files from the first Life is Strange. They went heavier in the story on this one...live in someone else's shoes type story. It's needed more and more this day and age.

I sucked at Pong on my Atari 2600 console. I don't know why. Maybe it was the controller that I couldn't get the hang of. Space Invaders I could go for hours and hours and never lose.

Dad could roll the score over and over on Space Invaders...i never was that good at it.

Got started with DOOM. It does seem a little more difficult than most shooters I ever played, but the challenge is nice.

Though I don't understand why OpenGL of all things is the default API instead of Vulkan, and then there is the fact that it can be controlled using the motion sensors (!) in the PS4 controller. The last one I noticed because my pointer kept dragging down by itself.

Technical quirks aside, it was a good time. Though I hope I don't get killed by a stupid elevator next time :laugh:

I didn't even know there was a second game in the series. I tried to like the first one, but didn't. It's like Freedom Force, a game I really, really want to like but I'm horrible at the actual gameplay. The Banner Saga is the same, I adore it but I think the tactical combat is boring.

I found the whole Banner Saga on the boorish side, the story was only ok. It was free from that twitch app that I'll never reinstall ever.

EQ2 main quest progress is slow, play isnt since micro management is thru the roof and the voiced "notifications" are so annoying, I have to mute the game.

I give up on Second Extinction

The servers are empty nobody to play with. It was supposed to be this L4D + Killing Floor with radioactive dinosaurs all co-op fun madness.
As it turns out. it's boring, poorly optimized and just farming repetition.
================================================

But, do you guys know what wasn't boring and no farming involved?

Buggy racing in Dirt 4 is a lot of fun and on balance, I prefer Dirt 4 to Dirt 5. Both look great, but Dirt 5 is more form over function. It's the ultimate arcade racer really.dirt4 (Medium).jpg dirt4-race (Medium).jpg

If you have time you might try RBDOOM-3-BFG it has x64 support, soft shadows (giving more realistic light properties to the game) and playing back Bink videos by using FFmpeg.

Oh, I'm playing the 2016 version of DOOM (the franchise reboot, if I'm not mistaken). Not the older ones.

Thanks for that tip!
I can't seem to fathom out how to install the RBDOOM mod from the Github page. There don't seem to be any downloadable files, unless I missed something.
