    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    I watched a Youtube video the other day that had a theory about this game and what happened. They reckoned that Zenimax wouldn't give Todd anymore money to work on the very ambitious projects of ES6 and Starfield. So he went to them with FO76 which had pretty much already been made as it was all leftovers from Fallout4, they just heard multiplayer and fallout and gave him the money to buy up another software company and more developers and he put them on the other projects. With a small team they got FO76 out, i don't think they really realised how bad it would go down. But also it may push Zenimax into giving them enough money to create a new engine as they could say look, our current engine is just no good anymore, look at all the complaints. Its a good theory anyway.
  2. So, me and my Elite horse have been a team for most of the game now, as you can imagine I grew fond of this horse, he was called Shadow and was pretty much maxed out. I thought I would go off story for a bit and complete some challenges. Shoot 5 birds from a moving train, oh that sounds easy I thought. Unfortunately as soon as the train pulled into the town the minimap went crazy with red dots and I was under a lot of fire. I clambered to the front of the train, pulled the driver out and accelerated the engine, it was at this point that my beloved steed ran past me, straight in front of the train and under its wheels. Why, I don't know. There are many many flaws with this game but I love it like an incestuous brother. I spent a few hours tracking and training my new northern Arabian last night but Shadow will never be forgotten.

    Your old arcade and game shop hangouts

    There were two shops that I can remember going to, one was called the Village i think and was in Shortlands, Bromley. That's where I would buy my Atari ST games. Then there was one in Shirley, I can't remember what it was called, it was down a side road and I used to trade my Lynx carts there. I remember it being a mission to get there from Crystal Palace. It was two buses and felt like hours, in reality I could have driven it in 20 mins. My uncle was a games developer in the 80s, working for Beyond/Firebird/Rainbird and a couple of times he took me up to the arcade in London, don't know what it was called or where it was, but there can't have been many. He would give me a bag of 10p's and tell me to go test out all the games and tell him what I thought. Great times.

    Find this old game for me!!

    There was Windows 95 and 98 but i don't remember a 96. Either way, that doesn't help you.

    Ubisoft teases next Farcry - Update: Far Cry New Dawn

    I think this will be the first Far Cry I don't buy. It's a shame.

    Ubisoft teases next Farcry - Update: Far Cry New Dawn

    No, Wildlands, edited. Thanks
  7. I want one, I just can't afford to buy it. Have considered selling my Rift to fund the purchase.

    Ubisoft teases next Farcry - Update: Far Cry New Dawn

    I am bored already. Another cut & paste Ubisoft game. I played TC Wildlands, Assassin's Creed Origins and Farcry 5 one after the other. They are all the same game in different skins. I didn't finish any of them because they are dull.

    Crash Team Racing Remake (rumour)

    The original was great, but in this day and age what makes you think a remake would be any good? It was the gameplay that made it fun, not the IP. I have no faith in remakes anymore. That article is confusing, is it a remaster or remake?
  10. If Ubisoft made cars, they would all be SUVs.

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    He did offer, and at that time i said thanks but i really don't want to play it. I just feel bad for him now. Although it's not like I'm swimming in gaming buddies myself. I used to be. Weird how life moves on.

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    Jesus, I have to buy this piece of turd. My gaming buddy says its great and he loves, keeps moaning that all the co-op players are having SO much fun and he is missing out because I won't play it with him. He says he hasn't seen any game breaking bugs and it's not just a fetch quest grind. I only play with him on fridays so for the sake of £20 it will shut him up. So not looking forward to it, would rather be playing RDR2 or Hitman 2 on my own!

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    It is now and especially for digital releases. But I do remember the days when games would sell out and you would have to wait. Also Pre-ordering often got you the game a day or two early. But it has had its day and only serves to lock you into a crappy purchase.
  14. Don't rush through it though! I don't get lot of time to play it, and sometimes when I do, all I get done is some housekeeping, maybe have a sleep, a shave and play with my horses balls for a bit. This game needs to be taken in slowly and enjoyed, it's not going anywhere. Some of the side quests are really good and feel just as part of any missions the story does.

    Deadpool 2 - 2018

    This was one of the worse films i have seen since Wonder Woman. I am done with comic/superhero films. They are all shit! All of them! Except the stuff pre 1990s
