Finished FC4.  Overall disappointed.  There literally is no payoff for having completed any of the tasks.  And all the NPCs are assholes.  Every single one, with one exception.  Longinus is the one stand out in this train wreck.  Interesting story.  Very weird in its own way, but ultimately it has a pay off.

The only redeeming factor in this game is the game play.  It is your standard fare for FC.  Sneak around taking out the bad guys.  Or just go in guns blazing and rip everything to shreds.  Even this had flaws as the Shangri-La missions where just annoying as f*.  Especially the last one.  It sucked moose balls.  Running around in circles trying to kill that f**king bird thing as annoying as hell.  And then there is no payoff.

So is FC5 like FC4 or FC3 or somewhere in between?  If it is like FC4 I might not bother.

At this point I have moved on to Andromeda.  I am going to give this one another try.  Finished the opening sequence which is too long without the ability to save.  I can already see some improvements that they made to the graphics.  Hopefully I will see more as I progress.  Character creation is still pretty lousy.

Trumpís allies worry that federal investigators may have seized recordings made by his attorney

ROFL

hope this pans out.

OMG!  If that is true it would loltastic.

They must have had some pretty damn convincing evidence to get the warrant to raid the President's lawyer. 

What a shit show.

Looks like a normal spring day for the US North.  Enjoy!  :-P

Here in California it has been a bit rough.  We are still getting some rain storms in late April.  Shocking I know!  I don't know how we manage.

Well I am about 60% done with FC4.  It is an enjoyable game but FC3 was much better.  Which is strange because it is almost the same game.  But FC3 has better characters, better story lines, better pacing and skill progression.  It just about every way possible FC3 is better than FC4.  Hopefully FC5 doesn't fall into the same issues.

BTW the award for awesome background music used in a trailer goes to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Whl28r8dVMU

The song is Red Sex by Vessel.  The actual song goes a little off the rails half way through but is still awesome.

He can't be referring to that...can he?  That song is sublime.

Second puzzle is out.  Basically the same as the first puzzle but more choices and rings.  Which in theory makes it more difficult but if you think it through it is substantially easier than the first puzzle.

There are provisions for changing the US Constitution.  Should it be easy?  No.  If it were then someone like Trump would have long ago ripped the document apart.  The US Constitution is a thing of beauty.  Flawed? Sure; but it is rightfully held up as a blueprint for how to build a government. 

I personally think it is one of the most important documents in human history.  It is at the core of what I consider to be the United States Ethos.  Sadly there are many who want to undo many of the provisions.  Trump has been on the attack against the constitution from day one.  His most obvious conflict with the document comes down to the Emoluments Clause.  Aside from that he has been attacking freedom of the press and speech.  He attacks our Court system.  I could go on and on sadly.

I personally believe that the Second Amendment is being twisted and misinterpreted.  I personally believe it should be repelled.  That said, I do not believe it should be easy to do.

I am not sure what this says about me but this gif never fails to put a smile on my face.

As a programmer I have felt this level of frustration many times.

Yeah...that was a stupid thing to say and believe.

I wish Trump was at that level of stupid.

It is such a shit show here.  I knew Trump would be a disaster.  I am not sure I expected it to be this level of bad.  Which is pretty incredible since I had really, really, really low expectations for Trump.

What I did not expect was for this administration to fundamentally attack the US Constitution the way it has.  I am genuinely becoming worried that I am watching the beginnings of the Constitution being broken down.

Is it the same game as previous two?  Meaning climb tower...clear fog...get weapon...find enemy bases...take over enemy base...have new safe house...hunt animals...craft larger/better storage equipment.  Rinse...repeat.

About 20% into FC4 and I would agree with that assessment.

Let me know how FC5 goes.  I should be able to get to it with in the next four years.  :P

BTW what is the consensus with Primal?  I am guessing more of the same as compared to FC4.

Well I finally gave in and started playing FC4.  Which is basically FC3 with shinier graphics and more stuff.  Does it make for a better game?  So far no.  I will reserve comment until I finish FC4 but the story/progression is not as good as the first one.  I am also not a fan of the FC4 big bad guy voice acting.  FC3 first/main bad guy was pretty fantastic in comparison.  FC4's bad guy just seems off with an ultra polished English accent.

All that said I am enjoying the game as a whole.

Maybe five... :o

Over the last couple of months I have got a lot of hours in on D3.

I might buy FC4 and take a break.
