Tbh, I liked the original Nemesis more. There is something missing with this one. That "STARS" doesn't ring quite right...
Also 2019 Claire > 2020 Jill. Funny how it was the opposite for me 2 decades ago.

This section was waaaay anti-climactic...

Had fun rounds yesterday playing Squad. Ended up as mortar squad during one round, with something like 20 kills/28 incaps/2 deaths at the end. Some good fire support calls made by other squadleaders.

Bought a month of WoW, started on Battle for Azeroth. Is it just me or are the cockney-light accents really terrible? They really annoy me.

I just finished playing Call of Duty Infinite Warfare's campaign, won't be replaying or touching the multi, but holy shit that was a 10/10 campaign. At 125 fps (that's the cap) it was smooth as butter even maxed out, looked amazing, the space combat was fantastic, I actually had to lean around corners and use tactics to get past several areas. Truly a great game. Would have given anything to see that team make a full on 50+ hour single player only game. Fuck that was the most fun I have had in ages, decent story too. (The AI was surprisingly smart as well, even running away from me and tossing frags behind them to slow me down) Never seen anything like that before, it was epic as fuck

If you decide to play it, make sure you use v-sync in game menu, and make sure you getting 125 fps. Also, unluck the thrustbooster for your space combat as soon as you can, it makes the space combat so insanely fun. It makes you a bit weaker, but you can haul ass through asteroid fields to dodge incoming missiles, etc. Damn it was fun. :toast:

Shame Activision never made an Inifnite Warfare 2, I am not really interested in any of their new stuff, haven't played CoD in years.

I didn't even know this existed. Normally when I see CoD, my eyes glaze over and I move on. Not really into the glorified war stuff - If I want that, I'll turn on the news.
I'll add this to my wish list for the next time it's on sale. :toast:

The majority of the call of duty campaign's while shallow are decently fun. They also push the cod engine a lot harder than the MP does.

It's also one of the engines actually optimized decently and typically even runs better on AMD hardware.

imho it's one of the better open world games even if you just focus on the story and don't do the side stuff. I'd recommend you at least do the hunter lodge stuff and the cauldrons though. it's slightly dated but still impressive visually in parts. Definitely worth a grab at a discounted price.

All around solid, well-polished open world with a very good story (maybe one of the best, actually.) Finished it multiple times. My one complaint might be that as nice as the envornments really are, there really isnt much variety and it feels a little empty at times.

The combat is a pretty major strong suit. Discovering all of the bots, learning different strategies with different equipment is greeeaaaat. Actually yeah... its greatest strength is the core loop. No real innovation in mechanics - its more like a very good amalgam of popular things in other major open worlds. They just dont make the same old mistakes with them and the balance between gameplay, exploration, and quests never really misses.

HZD was one of the reasons why I upgraded from my RX 570 to a GTX 1070 and the first thing I did with that card is to play HZD finally. 'it was unplayable on my 4GB RX 570 due to texture bugs'
I really liked that game, I found the story and the whole setting/world interesting + it looked pretty and the combat wasn't bad either.
On a sale it definitely worths it imo if this type of a game is your thing, did not have any real issues with the game in overall only minor ones and it offered a fair ammount of hours to play. 'I only ignored the challenge stuff but did all of the actual side missions and the cauldrons aside from the main story'

Now in the waiting room for the PC version of Forbidden West.:) 'I hope that will be a thing sooner or later'

Not buying now, but when I get back, and have gotten the RX 7900 XTX, I intend to COD MW2 and The Calisto Protocol, maybe by then, most of the performance bugs have been patched out (for the latter).

It's grand adventure! Love it. Buy with confidence.
It's on GOG as well if you're inclined to the DRM free version.
Same price too.

Same price too.

grabbing this on GoG now, so glad I didn't buy Dragonflight. the idea that a literal one month sub to a game costs the same as the entirety of a game like HZD blows me away.

this is going to be beautiful in high refresh 1440p. :rockout:

edit: I just noticed some of the reviews on GoG are saying even the GoG version of this game collects your web activity??? wtf...

I have not had that experience. Of course then again, I don't allow most games on the internet(blocked in firewall).

EDIT:
So I got a discount code for the following game and after watching a number of reviews decided to pull the trigger.
It was only $17 and after playing it for a few minutes, and following advice found in the reviews, I have to say, this is quite good!
