So many levels of wtf here.

And as someone who has jury-rigged the shit out of cars in the past, I find this amazing. :D

Primal is my favorite Far Cry. It takes itself more seriously than the others. And it's just a shitload of fun. Taming/collecting animals is a hoot, and something about riding a saber-toothed tiger or cave bear into battle against other cavemen is delightful. I played the hell out of it and still have it installed to go back to here and there.

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.

The prevailing opinion among my Steam circle is that FC4 is weaker overall than FC3, but generally just "more of the same"... so if you liked 3, you'll probably have fun with 4.

On that note, I have Far Cry 5 preloaded and am anxiously awaiting my chance to shoot some cult members this week. :D

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.

Sunk many hours in 3030 Deathwar Redux at the weekend.

I really, really like this game.

Books / Re: 2018 Reading List?

Got a classic SF story in with invasion of the body snatchers. fast read, not as dated as it could be. very good.

Got a horror anthology in next, decidedly mixed bag. a couple really good ones, and several that i ended up skipping.

the last exodus was terrible. felt more dated than invasion of the body snatchers, in spite of being published maybe 2 years ago. don't know if it was intentional but it certainly felt like (bad) SF pulp writing from 50yrs ago. do not read.

discovered that there were several new books out in the expanse series, but couldn't remember which one was the last one i'd actually read. so started nemesis games. turns out i've read this one. about 1/3 the way through. considered just looking up a summary, but these books are fast enough reading that i may just stick with it. have the next two in the series waiting (babylon's ashes, persepolis rising).

1. Spoonbenders, Daryl Gregory  - 2.5/5
2. Artemis, Andy Weir - 4/5
3. invasion of the body snatchers, Jack Finney - 4/5
4. the best horror of the year vol 9, ed by Ellen Datlow  - 3/5
5. the last exodus, Paul Tassi - 1/5

6. nemesis games, James Corey  in progress

edit: and since i accidentally wiped my last post: spoonbenders was ok. finished better than it started. Artemis was better; by the author of the martian. wasn't a laugh-out-loud home run the way the martian was, but still a worthy read.

Yeah I imagine I'm going to love it, but my backlog is just so crazy right now I'm just going to wait until I can pick it up crazy cheap!

I got 3030 Deathwar Redux because it was only 7.

Early impressions are its not quite as much "Monkey Island" style point and clickery as I'd like but, the quirkiness is there and I like the graphics a lot. Not sure about space combat yet. Better than I thought it would be but, I've only had one fight so far.
