    Finally 100% all the achievements in FFXV. Did the Ass Creed DLC too. Pretty dumb but it was free so can't complain to much.

    Just finished Life is Strange. What a strange game indeed.

    Downloading Dishonored 2 right now. Gonna work in Minecraft Story Edition in between that.

    I'm playing Splatterhouse 3 and on the one hand its so awesome in so many ways, but man I cannot deal with those level timers. Beating the game normally would be a good challenge but I don't want my in-game wife and kid to die so I gotta get the good ending, but it seems like its impossible.

    When I bought this game well downloaded it for free then spent money on shit damn freemium bs not as bad as fortnite because Fishing Planet can be played for free has turned out to be a fun in depth game. I'll probably still play it once Destiny 2 pisses me off and I need something to play between the deletion of Destiny 2 and reinstalling of it.

    Dishonored 2 is a pretty great game. Beat the first two missions so far.. making sure to collect all of the souvenirs and paintings in the process.

    Just hit Act 5 in Path of Exile. I am really enjoying the game play and level designs right now.

    So many games mentioned in this thread that are in my backlog while I'm obsessed with Path of Exile and Destiny 2 is dropping in less than a day. Feels good and kind of shameful.

    You've barely scratched the surface, my friend. Wait until your character gets into the 70s-80s, your passive skill tree is starting to become its final form, you've got some quality pieces of gear, your dps is starting to go through the roof.....it's such a fantastic game. Then there's a ton of other builds to try out with some of the unique pieces of gear that drop as you progress through the end game.

    Performance leaves a lot to be desired in what is a pretty spectacular game. Everyone seems to say the new expansion that just dropped is a massive improvement regarding performance though.

    I updated my drivers and seemed to do the trick, although occasionally I get a recurring, annoying bug that I can only fix by restarting my PC

    I'm like 10 hours into the game and the new enemies annoy the piss out of me (The snakes and the Advent close quarters dudes). The reason I didn't buy XCOM2 when it first came out was the new baddies sounded jammy as fuck and looks like I was right

    Yeah, you kind of have to play differently than the first XCOM. Grenades are way more important and there's a push to be more aggressive. I always had at least one and sometimes two Grenadiers with multiple grenades in my squad to blow the shit out of alien cover. Setting up ambushes can take out a pod of monsters quite quickly too but there's always that XCOM LOL RNG that can screw things up....but I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Whatd ya think???

    I'm almost positive I am the first Scottish man to ever finish that game, and apparently the last because not one of my buddies overseas has even heard of it

    I didn't like the
    sex abuse implied in the finale. The game could have easily just made the photographer photograph dead bodies for artistic reasons, but they deliberately made him stage underwear bondage photo shoots to up the terror factor. That's fucking gross, especially for a game guarenteed to have a huge fanbase among young teen girls. The game makes heavy implications that the kidnapped girls are killed after taking pictures in their underwear, but tries to claim no sex abuse happens (if you read the article about the discovery of rachel's body on the plane ride to the art showcase, they actually go out of their way to include "no signs of sexual abuse were found") but I think they added that as a quick cop-out to their entire series-long arc about drug dealing roofies and ghb and shiite

    Could have been a straightforward bad guy but they went a bit too law and order SVU with it.

    Also i wanted more dialogue options goddamnit

    It was interesting, beyond what I expected. Was a good story though, not sure about the sex abuse thing, I mean it could have played out a bit different but then again... I'm not really sure how much different the game could have been if I chose differently.
