Good news, I can't wait! :)


I tried Chivalry, I tried Mordhau, heck, I even played War of the Roses for a while before it went down - my conclusion was always the same: The learning curve is too steep, I die every time even before I manage to figure out the basics. :( They look like lovely games, and I love the Middle Ages, but the controls are just too much for me.

With that said, once I finish God of War, I'll try to see if I can get somewhere in Kingdom Come: Deliverance without dying in the first 5 minutes of the game. Last time I couldn't, but I've gone through a few PC upgrades since then, so maybe that helps a bit.

They can be tough, but you almost don't want to overthink it, I appreciate though the controls can be tricky, hell there are some moves/attacks/feints I don't even use. I just join the busiest server I can find and get stuck in!

kingdom come deliverance is a beast of a game to run. i know my 6800 xt struggles with it still. lol i think its a nvidia game though, so you probably will be able to run it great with a 3080.

oh this division, why can't we all just game together? :love: :peace:

Overthinking or not, it always ends the same way: I march into battle, and some random dude chops my head off, or I get an arrow before I can say "for the glory of the Emperor". :roll:

Inspired by the 1989 movie? Looks interesting, added to my wishlist. :)

I actually named my world Honey I Shrunk The Kids because that's exactly what it reminded me of. It's an open world fps rpg with a crafting system. The story isn't as deep as a Bethesda game but it has a story and it's unique, I've been playing single player but the Mantis is too hard to take down on my own so I may have to enlist help (it is a co-op game too).

wow that looks like old school CoD, with better graphics ... how is it?

Those screenies don't do it justice graphically. It's a proper squad-based gem, the maps are huge and detailed and you REALLY need to work as a team. Classes are very important, this isn't Battlefield where everyone can fly a plane or drive a tank. Games can typically be one and a half hours long and you can run around and get shot without even seeing who killed ya, in short... it's fab.

I just finished downloading this. One of the best things about Humble Choice is that you get Games you never heard of that are actually fun to play.

Exactly this.

Lots of hidden gems out there and Humble Choice does a pretty good job of bringing those to light.

Well I just played for 20 to 30 minutes. I picked the Machine Gunner. Was sneaking around with my squad bringing up the rear (after getting lost) and going through backyards. I come out of a backyard and there is a German soldier crouching. I press the right trigger to shoot him and nothing happens. I think the Game is broken until I respawn and test the controls to understand that I have to use the left trigger to hold the gun and right trigger to fire. I then proceeded to follow a tank and was taken out by a sniper. Talk about immersion. Thank you Humble.

Playing some Dark and Darker. Free playtest going until the 23rd. It's extremely difficult solo, but very fun and rewarding if you manage to portal out.

man this game would be great on an OLED screen

I don't think I can wait much longer, I think LG C3 launch in March is my last stop, if 32" isn't out yet, I am going to get the LG C3 42"

Played Astro's Playroom on my PlayStation 5 last night... holy crap the Dualsense controller is really a new experience. It is truly a shame more games don't utilize those features it has... still on the fence if I want to keep it or sell it, since so many exclusives are coming to PC and I have no living room of my own, so I am always at my desk anyway... I bought it before I knew all the exclusives were coming to PC, but never opened it until recently because I was traveling abroad earlier this year.

I have to say, PS5 has impressed me though so far. That Dualsense controller is truly next level. Experiencing the sounds coming from it and the haptic ability of the triggers on the shoulder buttons is insane... it really caught me off guard how good it was in Astro's Playroom... seriously more games need to take advantage of this.
