I am 3 seasons into the first one now, completely in debt and not sure how that will work at seasons end... So that is the next stage there.
But I have one a championship in my second year, and have noticed on a couple of tracks that the "recommended" setup isn't always the best. Also rain and safety cars are your best friends...

Fortnite is like... Team Fortress Battle Royale. It's so much more fun than PUBG imo.

i like PUBG a lot. i won a game last night with my fellow buddy again. which is nice
but i like the light-heartedness of fortnight. i like their customisation and overall it feels less stressful.

I like PUBG a lot too, just super sick of the entire AU player base being swamped by asians and hackers.

Had a couple of goes at H1Z1 today, since it has gone free to play I was hoping for some more people playing.
But still not huge numbers.

I will say that the new auto-royale is good fun though. No getting out of the car, it is just drive drive drive...
4 people in a team. If you don't have 4 then you get randoms to fill out your 4...

Nnnnnggg, I refunded Kingdom Come Deliverance because I was pretty sure it wasn't worth the price, then spent time time playing it using other means, repurchased. Worth it.

Lockpicking in KCD is fucking haaaaard. Triply so as I didn't know that the Miller would give me 5 lockpicks that I then broke... I now have no lockpicks and no way to complete the good thief quest...

Still... enjoying the pace of it all so far... fighting seems fairly well done as well (but for needing to flick the twiddle stick rather than holding it and finding myself looking behind me in a sword fight).

Everything in KCD is fucking haaaard imo, lockpicking is impossible, sword fighting is super hard, and archery is impossible - it's like the arrows are moving through water ffs.

The swordfighting is near impossible for me though, I must not block correctly because if I block then swing, they just block my return strike - I had one quest where I had to kill two bandits and the only way I could do it was to choke them out while they were asleep then stab them while they were unconscious.

I presume you're playing on console also, Disco? I read that it's much easier to pick locks with mouse and keys.

And yeah, archery is ludicrous... the way he wavers when drawing the bow gives him the strength of a 5 year old.

Most of my return strikes are blocked too, and like you, off of successful ripostes. Looking forward to the game opening up, feels a bit linear so far... I just want to be freed up to live out my life (as that's what i understood the game to be about).

No I'm playing on PC and I still find lockpicking to be totally idiotic, I'm just going to mod it out to be easier I think - I'm at the point where I could go off and do whatever I wanted to do, but with my current combat skills I'm pretty sure I'd just get waylaid by some bandits and that'd be the end of me.

I also modded the save function so I can save whenever, the game being how shit the combat is I NEED to save before any possible engagement as it typically takes me 2-3 goes to defeat a foe.

Subnautica
Finished building the Neptune! - now just need to cure myself.

I've already been where I need to go but didn't have the blue tablet at the time. I've got the blue tablet now so will head back down next play and hopefully I'm close to end game!

Did anyone put something deep and meaningful in the time capsule?? I've found one but it had stuff I'd already crafted in it.

Who would whinge about getting free ion batteries in their early game?



Back to Kingdom Come... how good is Farkle? I love me a simple in-game game, none of that Gwent shit. Just got kicked out of the pub though because games take forever to complete (and we were on duty too, naughty Nightingale!).

Took me a minute to understand it, but it's pretty simple and good fun! I could never get into Gwent, I don't understand how it took everyone by storm.

Still wouldn't be sad to see a little poker in there though.

Drake (the musician) playing Fortnite on Twitch with Ninja (Twitch streamer) and Ninja's got over half a million viewers watching live.

It's a whole new world.

I know I'm slow on the uptake and everyone has finished but I finally completed Subnautica. I thought it was fantastic, I got stuck 1/2 way through when I didn't have much direction but that was probably my fault for not reading all the PDA's.

Anyhow, I'll stop annoying everyone about it now and just say it's probably in my top 10 games so thanks for recommending it.

I don't understand how they settled on such bad lockpicking and archery mechanics for KCD
