^Nice. Our IT guy at work is actually suggesting I get my new laptop (work pays for them) from a company called Metabox (here in Perth). Nice plenty powerful machines (we need the grunt) that are basically gaming laptops more powerful than my current home PC.

Anyways - from Square Enix, because I don't have enough of a pile of shame, and absolutely hate anything sandboxy...

Picked up Ghost Recon Wildlands and I have to say it's the spawn of satan and an evil game......It's making me stay up till ridiculous hours playing it and forcing me to "just do one more mission" :violence-snipersmiley: :lol: :lol:
Only played single player atm but it's a ton of fun!

This! Join the PA task force (i.e. clan). Makes it easier to find players. Not sure if it works for console players too assuming that's what you're playing on but give it a try anyway as being part of a taskforce unlocks xp.

In related news, I got this for $10...

Figured that when the Division costume pack arrives, I'll get it for free this way. Plus I get The Division game to play!

You're not missing much with the division. I think wildlands is the game the division should have been (in a different setting)

Yeah, I heard that you can't even headshot in the Division. Sounds pretty crap but at $10 it was the cheapest way to get The Division costume pack in Wildlands assuming the way to unlock it is the same as the Future Soldier pack.

I've got both on PC ,I've got over 250 hours with the Division and really like the story and setting despite some of the issues ,I think both games are great for their settings! ,The Division does urban combat really well and Wildlands does the same with open world,(course having the Far Cry series to draw from you would think UBI would nail it ;) )

@Mugsy you can get headshots in the Division it can even be a daily (5) or weekly (50) mission!

I haven't played it in forever, it was super repetitive, the dark zone was just shit, and the fact there wasn't any variety in enemies just killed me

I got a bit over it once we stopped being able to do the darkzone etc with just 2-3 of us. 100% over not just being jacked by super geared 4 man teams but multiple 4 man teams working together. Then you'd be midway up the zone and all of a sudden its patched so you can't kill a mob up there solo.

No point in playing.

I should probably install The Division this weekend and see if I like it. If so, the season pass is only AU$30 on uplay atm. Of course, I mainly got it for the campaign and potential costume unlock in Wildlands. Wildlands is getting pvp soon and there's only so many games I can play.

The Division was fun for a time with mates doing the single player campaign, but once max level was reached it became a grindy farm fest which, prior to the loot 2.0 patch, was a ridiculous waste of time. By the time most of the fixes came out, I had played my 100 hours worth and called it a day. It didn't help when all of my mates had also moved on. I can't imagine how things like the Dark Zone on PC would've panned out, on PS4 it was bad enough getting analed from human and AI enemies.

Probably a BIG reason why I didn't bother with Wildlands. Wasn't too eager to repeat a Division experience.

I'll have to give the Division a go to be able to make a fair comparison but Wildlands has no "loot" so to speak of. It's more so gun unlocks and once you've unlocked that gun, you can switch it in and out at any time between the different guns you've unlocked. As such, the game is less about the grind and more about picking your next objective in the open world whether it be:

- a story mission
- getting intel to unlock new objectives
- getting a gun
- getting an accessory
- getting resources
- getting a collectible of some sort

I actually applaud the way they've structured the objectives as it's a lot more enjoyable to do than bounties in DIablo 3 which has a similar open world. Probably the only thing makes it too easy is that you can venture around in a helicopter to unlock all the safehouses (i.e. waypoints). Would be a better experience to venture out and unlock things on foot.

I'm not sure how end game in Wildlands will turn out. It looks like a case of PvP and seasons (reset the map and start again I'd say) but the co-op in Wildlands is some of the best I've played.

There's always got to be some negative fucker around to rain on your parade, I like the way Beats sound - I've owned a few pairs now and will take them over similarly priced headphones that I've tried. Very happy that my particularly awesome has has bought me a new pair that I've been wanting for a while <3.

The good news is, people can buy what they like because it's what they like and it's their own money, so anyone who wants to get on the "x is better" or "you'r wasting your money" train can do so and fuck off :roll:

Seems like a lot of people missed this when they were growing up

Not gonna show it, but Rocksmith 2014 Remastered and a cable for it.

Let's see if this is finally the thing that helps me not sound like a ham-fisted gimp on the guitar...

Thankfully I have plenty of money, so I just splash it around as I see fit and if my splashing pleases my husband, all the better...
