I was obsessed with Test Drive Unlimited, put hundreds of hours in.

I would normally just get in my red GT40 and cruise around the island, meeting up with randoms and just hanging out.

I think the last Test Drive game I played was on the PS1?

Happy memories. My mate and I just used to road-train around the island without any real purpose. Loved every second.

Yeah, I was damn annoyed when they finally canned the TDU servers, it was a great game to just tool around in after work.

I got nothing for ya... I was raised to not do things I wouldn't want done to myself. And that's why anal sex is off the agenda.

Found my Steam screenshot folder... god help you all.

The Hunter: Call of the Wild.


I am a huge fan of the 'free-to-prey' game The Hunter and was pretty happy with the money I poured into it... this is an unusual opinion given the feral rage the game has forever garnered from people who want everything for free (that's sure to be an opinion to make me popular).

This latest one is a paid title.. but already has some DLC which has yet again got its audience up in arms.

On the MASSIVE MASSIVE OH MY GOD IT'S FUCKING HUGE maps you can unlock fast-travel areas and lookouts (lookouts will populate the map with nearby points of interest);

Image

Image

As was The Hunter... Call of the Wild is absolutely stunning with the best vegetation and world-building of any game ever (imo);

Image

Image

You'll earn XP and cash as you rake in your earlier kills with the XP invested in skills and perks (which might sound trite but is actually a pretty cool way to keep me playing at least) and while it's not always sporting;

Image

it will tell you how you killed the creature (in this case a panicked three shots as I came across my first Bison);

Image

it won't be long until you can afford your second main weapon... in my case foregoing a shotgun for this beautiful compound bow;

Image

that is modelled so well that you can see the arrow has broken on my practice shot;

Image

No bugs outside of the last part of my hunt... I'd crossed into a new area and had just spotted a majestic buck in the distance and I had a small herd of 3 European Bison bearing down on me... but suddenly my rifle, binoculars and hunting mate all disappeared. I could still flick between them and the icon would change, but I couldn't bring my rifle up. Gah. The buck would have been worth some pretty amazing XP and cash.

Here's the lead Bison as he finally realises what's in front of him.

Image

Probably the only things missing so far are;

- no free head-look. Possibly a consequence of the game now working with a controller... didn't try my TrackIR but presuming it won't work.
- no posing your trophy shots... was a morbid but pretty funny element of the FTP title

There is, however, an achievement for a 400+ meter kill... and I'm pretty sure the view distance on animals in the original didn't go that far.

Just realised the game is made by Avalanche (Just Cause, Mad Max) in their Apex engine... publisher is Expansive Worlds.

Just reading up on the 'Tent' DLC and actually, am feeling a little of the outrage. It's a massive gamespace and tents allow you to save your current spot when you stop playing. For a once-and-done game that should probably be a part of the game's price. Cosmetic shit, fine, don't care... hmmm..

All in all though, recommend!

Going against the grain here but not sold on Prey at the moment. The enemies are hard to see, and all the weapons I've found so far hit like a wet lettuce leaf, unlike the enemies. I got excited when I saw you could replicate a crossbow but it's a freaking nerf crossbow. You have armour but most of their attacks seem to go straight through it. It doesn't seem to run all that well on my 1060 either, which is odd because I've read people say it's well optimised.

IGN's review of Prey on PC absolutely panned it for being buggy. So there's that.

Prison Architect is out on iOS... fantastic port (went through paradox interactive I believe). Free to play base gives you two campaign missions and limited sand-box mode, $7.99 for unlimited sand-box and $22 gives you everything (campaign, sandbox).


Also, The Hunter CotW... seriously. Fucking AMAZING.

43 sausages successfully cooked in Stephen's Sausage Roll. This game is fiendishly difficult, yet there's something so satisfying when it finally clicks.

Bit of an odd night. Farming Sim 15 to start with, followed by Prison Architect on the Xbox and ending with Rimworld.

Rimworld is an odd jobby. Pretty happy with my refrigerator setup as my 6 colonists have more than enough food to last a long winter but just having some trouble with getting everyone to wear temperature appropriate clothing. I can see how this might become a little addictive.

I have real problems making good clothing in that game without manipulating my colonists skills.

I enjoyed the game when I was playing it... and might have to grab the Horizons pass as I don't have that yet.
It is much better when playing with others though (and from what I have heard, much better with a flight stick)
I played it with keyboard and mouse and actually liked the flight style though

I use Discord, but haven't played with anyone from PA yet.
Usually another group of mates or family.

Which TS do you use Disco? The old GoN one?
