Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Sure is! Upped the difficulty to Stalker though and wow... punishingly hard. I finally found a book of matches and some very sub-par living arrangements.. but was attacked twice by a wolf. Need to gather the courage to continue that run, it's just such a big difficulty spike! Playing lots of PUBG......

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Good luck, Kharis! Poor little fella :( Week 2 of my 6 week vacation. Only received one call from work and otherwise haven't given it a thought. Doing the school pick-up/drop-off every day and playing with my youngest during the day... big 4 day holiday booked for Melbourne in two weeks time (will b...

Grabbed Blops 4 because Blackout mode looks to be a shitload of fun.


Now currently waiting for a match in PUBG on Xbox... 30 minutes waiting so far, wtf.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Years ago (it feels like) I bought The Long Dark on PC. I gave it a few goes, it felt full of promise but it never quite clicked. Then it came out on Xbox and I bought it there (because achievements) and had the same issue. Not any more. Am on my 9th day and doing really well. I have a hunting rifle...

Green Hell now has mouse inversion! Very cool game... check-it... hE73JvEc2pQ Okay so... I've been getting back into EUIV which was triggered by hearing of Stellaris coming to console.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Oooooh... I need new monitors. These things are nearly 12 years old!


Void Destroyer 2 is in the best shape of its life right now. Skyboxes done, story mode updated, gameplay is still a blast. Think of it as a space-RPG/RTS, gorgeous voxel-y/borderlands-y style visuals.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Unrucky! Couldn't get SCUM going tonight so that was off the menu.

Cleaned up some Warframe, started installing the BFV beta, went to play some PUBG (now 1.0 on console) and there's Xbox outages affecting profiles... no games for me.

Agreed, Neko. It's fun to go back and watch Frankie's DayZ videos to see how the game used to be fun before the desolate wasteland of standalone came out. Still, had a better day today, managed to at least kit myself out with a helmet, fireman's axe and some food and water... even found a Mosin but ...

Playing Vampire The Masquerade again (got about a quarter of the way through last time). Such a good game, I really want to commit to seeing it through this time around. Grabbed DayZ on Xbox preview... runs really smoothly, super excited to hang out with my usual gaming party... but fuck me what a p...

Jack Ryan came out today on Prime. I am a massive Tom Clancy fan having read all the books when I was younger... so to see John Krasinski playing the man who will be president... so excited!

Re: What are you watching?

So I'd grabbed a trial Amazon Prime in order to get Twitch Prime in order to get free stuff for Warframe (Trinity Prime!). I didn't realise it had given me access to Prime Video...


...and holy shit... The Man In The High Castle. Is anyone else watching this? Crazy good.

Taking 6 weeks at the end of this week... first holiday in 15 months.

Y'all need to take a break, seriously unhealthy to not take 4 weeks a year and shame on your workplaces for not enforcing that!

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Disco: i have a lot of love for Vegas and GRAW but Siege is just this perfectly distilled tactical experience in my eyes. The fact they intend a 10 year development wjndow rather than sequels is also tremendously exciting... lota of deeply layered gameplay (via the various 'powers') gives it massive...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Kinda half surprised that Rainbow Six Siege is still massively alive on PC. On Xbox, I can't my copy running at all, constant error messages, super frustrating. Joined up on PC and max wait is 28 seconds. Still such an excellent game too. Wife was watching movies on my xbox account tonight so it's b...

Re: Path of Exile

I've read so many good things about PoE and how the end game is off the show... but fuck me the intro killing skeletons on a beach is not selling itself to me.

How far do I need to push before I stop wishing I was playing Diablo 3?

Yeah I could have told you that. The grind towards cooler gear isn't worth it when movement and attacks all feel so horribly clunky.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Mini, you're starting to sound like me!

My night is quite simple still... a bunch of Warframe with the rest of the NZ-based clan, then back to NMS for more larval core farming with a view to buying a few new freighter escorts.
