I actually like ME1 the most >_>

I like the story the best out of the 3, and the RPG mechanics are represented the best too.

2 and 3 go for a much more actiony set up.

Watching xwynns's Long War 2 videos, he plays the game so differently than me O_o looks like small squad stealth missions are viable

Started playing Skyrim SE on the Xbox today and having a good amount of fun, walking to High Hrothgar takes FOREVER and I keep bumping into things that kill me easily, like, tigers and shit.

Playing as an Orc swinging a big ass axe for a change, the combat is a bit awkward but the death animations are satisfying

Today I found out that you lose a massive chunk of Hitman's functionality if the game can't connect to it's servers (which are down atm). If you make any kind of progress while offline it essentially doesn't count. Not that that really matters, because a lot of the content becomes locked away offline at any rate so you can't progress even if you wanted to.

Had forgotten how oh so very good the driving is in Forza 6.

I don't know if this is news, but Fallout Shelter is now on the Windows Store (cross-play with Xbox One). Actually kinda fun playing it on PC and not my iPad.

Also installing all 100GB of Fallout 4 just to get a look at this texture pack. Given I was slightly more advanced in my PC playthrough, contemplating very seriously as to whether I sell off my Xbox copy.

I beat GTA:V. At least I thought I did - didn't expect there to be more missions after the final mission.

The dilemma of a sandbox game is whether I uninstall it now, or keep playing the game aimlessly for an indeterminate amount of time.

I don't remember missions after the final mission...
I need to finish it off again.

Are they side missions (The '?' ones) or more story ones?

I keep stumbling into areas that I cannot survive in Skyrim, maybe I should just stick to the storyline for a while

Mini, was a story one. Got back to Trevor's trailer and his Mom showed up asking him to steal a truckload of pills. (Did the Deathwish ending)

Is there a decent mod to take the spiders out of Skyrim? I'd love to revisit it, but the exploration aspect of the game didn't fit well with my arachnophobia.

I can't say for sure mate, I just grabbed a few mods on Xbone that looked helpful and went on with my life, but I ain't scared of no spiderbros... :P

There's a mod that replaced spiders with bears for normal Skyrim. I even remember a story about it back on Games.on.net. If you're talking about the special edition (remastered), I've got no idea if someone's made something similar for that yet.

Smashed and crashed my way through DiRT Showdown's career mode until I had a 1st place in every event. Mostly, pretty damn fun and reminded me a lot of playing games like FlatOut. Moved on to DiRT 3, to do the same, but now I am in the habit of using boost and I keep wondering why nothing happens when I try to boost in DiRT 3. :lol:

Also, playing through Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered. It's one weird game, plus QTE madness. :crazy:

Baron von teacups ludicrous adventure?

I played through both of David Cages games. Both are a whole lot of "Wat" and plot holes.

Back to Watch_Dogs 2. I love the humour they did such a great job, especially given how up its ass being gritty and serious the first one was.

Also made up a list of games I need to finish, printed and laminated them and let my co workers draw out the first 4 games I'll finish. I got Watch_Dogs 2 obviously, then Fallout 4, Pillars of Eternity and Witcher 2... Probably should have divided up the list before the draw. I did a redraw and Pillars got swapped with Zelda Twilight Princess HD.

Told my partner I can't buy anything else until I've finished atleast those 4 games...

Damn Yakuza 0 looks fun.

Pretty much this! Part of me really wants to keep playing to see where it goes, but the "Wat" factor and crazy QTEs are testing my resolve.

I'm making good progress on Watch_Dogs and Twilight Princess, Witcher 2 is downloading and I'm going to play that on Easy just so I can be done with it after all these years and move onto Witcher 3. Fallout 4 is going to be the tough one purely because I want to do everything when I load up that game.

Back into some more Vermintide last night, still love the hack and slash nature of this game.
Playing with my brother and 2 AI, makes some bits difficult, especially when the AI is completely retarded and falls off ledges instead of jumping.
So would be happy with someone else joining us :D

Also started Total War:Warhammer, enjoying the battles so far, and have decided to go with the Dwarves in the campaign to begin with. Hopefully I can get somewhere before I get overrun because I forgot something.

Been wondering how to deal with some mages in a den that are kicking my ass in Skyrim, I'm playing an Orc and focusing on 2H weapons and struggling in this bit, I do okay and then out of nowhere there is a huge ass explosion that kills me and my followers, some kind of spell.

Bastards.

You might want to go hunting for some wayshrines, either The Lord which gives 25% magic resist, or The Atronach which gives 50% spell absorbtion. Or doing a bit of Alchemy, fire resist potions are pretty easy to make and if you drink a few it should help.
