  1. Past hour
  2. Finished this game last night. Overall, i'd give it a solid 70%. It really felt like an SW game of old. If you were of an age to have marvelled at Dark Forces, you'll appreciate the feel of a SW game (i suspect the music score has as much to do with that as anything). I will confess that half way through i found the many boss fights to be too difficult on Jedi Master level, and decided to complete the rest on the next notch down (the bottom notch). Which was still difficult enough to be challenging and but not so difficult that it was no fun. It's not a long game. There are 5 main locations that you go back and forth to as the story unfolds. But the locations are rather large. As mentioned before, it plays out VERY much like the last 3 Tomb Raider games, and was built using the same, or similar, engine (Unreal). It is a superb engine, that made me gasp from the first few scenes. The characters are good. Your two main crewmates, are mostly dressing, but good dressing in that they contribute to the story, but not the action. The voicing is all brilliant - notably here is the captain, voice superbly by Daniel Roebuck (didn't know who he was). I have developed a soft spot for the sexy-voiced Mirren, a Russian-sounding witch, who appears later in the game. I would love to see more of her (no, not in that way). There's a lot to not be so proud of here. The game feels disjointed and too heavily scripted. As with TR, you are dumped in large spaces, but still on rails within that large space. Fighting mechanics can be a bit button-mashy at times. And there are a few bugs that don't destroy the game. I quit after several hours play due to losing too much progress between no-choice save points. But having restarted, found out that you can skip some of the bits a 2nd time round. Once it drop below £20, it's worth a punt. Graphically played great on a 1080 with a 4-series i7 and 16Gb. I'll leave you with a pic of Merrin.
  3. No. To be honest, i couldn't see the USB boot drive as being a permanent solution anyway. I think the performance would have been too poor. I just wanted to experience it and learn more about the servers limitations.
  4. Today
  5. Well, sorry to here that. I only did the usb drive on my home pc. Did you try the usb drive on your pc first to make sure it worked? In the video I watch the guy said he had problems with different versions of Rufus other than 2.2. Talking about slow, you could try a bootable DVD to use in that drive. Or Linux, since it is just going to be a storage unit. Good Luck and let me know how things go.
  6. Yesterday
  7. I love the Expanse. Season 4 may not be as good as the first two seasons but it is better than season 3 that I felt was a bit off.
  8. Last week
  9. ... or Grim Dawn. I agree. I have a few titles where the developers continue ongoing refinement, updates, and adding new content long after they published a "finished" product. I'll happily put up with having to download new content along with bug fixes and other updates.
  10. Built the USB and tried to get it to boot for a few bays with no luck. Just stuck on the swirly. Then bought a slimline-to-fat sata cable to swap the DVD drive for a bootable windows disk. Seems HP checks for genuine drives attached. Bastards. Talking to the server guys, one of the reasons they're selling off the servers is they found HP very difficult to work with. HP try to tie you in completely to their ecosystem. That's possibly what i'm seeing too. Almost given up. Borrowed a sata PCI card that i might try. My last option is to rebuild a raid array, as it originally was and copy my data onto it somehow (slow external USB drive possibly.)
  11. It's great when game devs show you that they love their game. Reminds me of No Man's Sky a bit.
  12. This week we brought on Zack, one half of the Commander Social podcast (recently nominated for Best MTG Podcast with a small audience for 2019!).

  13. This game appears to be a Steam exclusive, which is a shame. After poking around the developer's website, I discovered the game is also available to dirty console peasants in Xbox and PS4 flavors.
  14. Has anyone else here played the Long Dark? It's one of my favorite go-to games. I have roughly 400 hours into it and it just keeps delivering. And the story mode is amazing. They just released the 3rd chapter and it was just as good as the othewrs. Plus, the new chapters AREN'T extra dlc. They are included in the game, so you just dl them when they come out, free of charge.
  15. We crack open some Theros Beyond Death packs for our Patrons with some spice coming out of both the THB packs AND the Build-A-Pack box! Then, we give away a pack to a random comment from last week.

  17. Ok, the Cloning didn't work. But the Windows to Go on a usb stick did and it sees other drives, just not other C: drives. I can see both of my external drives just not the SSD with windows. So it should work for you, but I would try and use usb 3 if at all possible. Usb 2 is very slow and laggy but works. The first link shows you step by step and the second explains the whys and whats. Main thing is to have a usb stick that acts like a HDD or fixed drive, most usb sticks are not. The second link goes into this in detail if you need it.
  18. It's all gravy.
  19. Finally downloaded and installed Greedfall. Had high expectations, but at least the first chapter appears to be a walking simulator with brief combat sessions in between lengthy cinematic sequences. FWIW ... It may get better or it may continue to play as the thread-titled game is reported to play above. 2c
  20. well you do run sometimes as well, if that helps...
  21. Over on the official forums in the character builds section, there is a dervish build with immortal pets. It is purportedly an easy build to pick up and level. It looks interesting because it is a pet+melee hybrid which usually suck at endgame. This one is reported to be safe enough for Hardcore (one death and game over) and has decent performance at endgame. It's worth a look if you like pets and dual-wield spinning your way through hordes of mobs.
  22. Hmm should get back into this game sometime! Keep thinking about it.
  23. I do like Obsidian games as you may all know, but not picked this up yet. Waiting until its not Epic exclusive, that cancer that is that Fortnite store!
  24. I just been looking at this on GOG where it's on sale for 50% off. Wasn't sure whether to go for it, still not sure. Hmmm walking simulators don't do it for my anymore, not like the old granny walking simulators of yore.
  25. Heya! Yeah was worried I been away for so long. Sorry for being so vacant lately, life is being a bit busy at the moment. Time has flown by so fast lately!
  26. I had seen this game around, considered it but just never appealed enough to make me want to pick it up. Hmm seems to have matched up to my expectations there from what you say.
  27. Nice to see you fella. Was thinking of you only yesterday.
  28. Interesting, may have to load up my game...
