The Witcher 3 at max settings with a perfect and never-wavering 60fps... is a fucking beautiful thing.


That will be all. Carry on.

Finished Planescape: Torment.  Pretty trippy, I can see where the ideas for Kreia from KOTOR2 came from, and how most of the descriptions of D&D planar locations this game shows haven't changed at all in 20 years (though the next 2 books for 5E will be focused on the Planes).

Yep. It really does just look fantastic.

I am wearing out my screenshot key.

I quite liked the first, it scratched my L4D itch nicely, so I've done something which is getting more and more exceptional for me, I got Vermintide 2 day one, and first contact is good. Ping me on Steam if you feel like playing.

I'm kinda interested in Vermintide 2, but will wait for a better sale. 25% off isn't enough to tempt me yet...

Anyone here know if Deathwar redux 3030 is as good as it looks? A game that combines Lucasarts/SCUMM system point and click gameplay with an Elite style open space exploration, seems potentially really, really good and it has positive reviews.

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.

Sunk many hours in 3030 Deathwar Redux at the weekend.

I really, really like this game.

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.

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

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.

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.
