Mutant Year Zero is amazing. That will be all, thank you.

I've been ogling that myself. Looks good. Bit pricey atm.
Does it actually play like XCOM as Ive heard?

It absolutely does. The HUD is even practically ripped straight out of XCOM. You will be in very familiar ground, mechanically.

The game is stupidly gorgeous. The voice-acting is great. The story is engaging so far. The mechanics are solid. Super highly recommended.

Stylish visor on a duck! (it's actually called "Stylish Visor")

Looks good, thanks for screenshots.
Definitely on my list for when I finish my current XCOM2 obsession

Also, sometimes JUST AN AXE isn't quite good enough.

Double spikey axe.

Noice.

Yeah, reviewers are idiots. All I read are bad things everywhere, yet the 5 people I know IRL who are playing this (counting me) are having a great time. I don't get it.

Nature of the business I expect. I've played games and enjoyed them thoroughly, only to find an undercurrent of hate and negative reviews, citing issues I never experienced.

Getting more interested in FO76 because of you though Pixie

Watched the Hateful Eight today on my day off. 3 hours wasted down the shitter.

Damn. Been looking forward to watching that.

Why didn't you like it?

Excellent.

Will that accept my old D2 serial? I should think so

watched the predator and venom recently. both pretty cheesy. venom was better. 

Ugh I actually agree. I am a Predator fan through and through, I remember watching the first movie when I was about 13 and was hooked. But sadly the latest offering didn't do much for me at all. Dumb sequel naming aside, it had a more AvP movie feel to it, than a Predator movie. There was no building of suspense, just action for the sake of action. I guess it advanced the cinematic storyline, but it felt like really generic action/sci-fi to me.

Venom was excellent. Tom Hardy was a really strong choice for the role (he rocks most roles TBH, slight man-crush). Not a bad word to say about the movie.

You guys.....are making me feel the D2 itch again.

Y'all playing 800x600 or what?
I really can't play without higher res and the high res mod stopped working with 1.13 IIRC(?)

Any significant or exciting changes?

I lost interest with the repetition, which is odd considering how much D2 I have played, but it is a somewhat different game, though D3 has its moments of glee

Hey lads and laddettes!

I have been spending most of my time in Civ 5 lately. Currently working on improving my play on Immortal, with the intent to play on Deity at some point. Mostly just enjoying the game though, as well as trying different Civs to try and get the achievements for winning with each of them. Very time consuming. Would love to do some MP but finding it difficult to set aside 5-6 hours for it.

I also got a very nice set of Fallout drinking glasses for Father's Day and that got me sucked back into Fallout 4. However all my installed mods were out of date, and I couldn't remember what a lot of them actually did, so I started new without mods and have been adding some in as I go.

Haven't played D3 for a while now, might be done with it, or might get back into it, who knows? D2 has been entering my thoughts occasionally too....

Australia is making some minor progress in making medical cannabis products available. We're likely still years away from anything like some of the US states though :/ But, progress is progress.

I had a recent cull of people on my FB friends list and my criteria for not being deleted was "If I was passing through the city where [insert name lives] or vice versa I would want to and would make time to have a beer with said person". People who I wouldn't make time to have a beer with got deleted.

*checks facebook friends list for Supermatt*

Nice.   ;D

Picked up Darkest Dungeon and Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition over the weekend.  Darkest Dungeons seems like it'll be fun for one go but the RNG is pretty heavy and requires much more of a grind than other Rogue-lites I've played.

I love Darkest Dungeon.

Been playing it a LOT and the RNG can be...frustrating. Took me a long time to finish the game the first time on 'Darkest' difficulty. Now I am doing that same difficulty with Crimson Court, after which I will do a Stygian run. The CC DLC makes the game somewhat harder.

Once you get a feel for party compositions and what skills to use where (for example, bleed is largely useless is The Ruins), the game gets easier and you actually feel like you can progress, rather than getting destroyed.

There's a huge amount of info available (I used the DD sub-Reddit) and I recommend using it to learn the basics, at least. Overall though, it's about mitigating RNG rape and bringing the best and most useful team to the dungeon you're tackling.

It IS grindy until you understand how to win, but later you can get through much faster, as such Stygian has a time and death limit, which I forget offhand. I honestly enjoy the grinding in this game though. :)

If anyone else is playing and wants to discuss/ask questions/etc, we could start a thread!
