Awesome! I might look into this... Turtle Beach is a reputable company and I wouldn't mind a controller with mappable back buttons. Free up the thumbs while I'm running about in Elden Ring.
Just been testing it with Dirt5, I like the feel of the controller got a good weight, I think I prefer the weight of the device compared to the Xbox One controllers its lighter. I like the grip on triggers, it has a sound boost/equalizer built in so improves the sound on my HyperX Headphones if I plug in as apposed to using my PC Amp. I have not tried the customizable buttons yet though quickly looked at a few YouTube videos seems easy enough to set up on the device itself. I opted for a two year extended warranty in case of any minor damage or wear and tear through use, though I am usually very careful with any of my tech. I tend to like aesthetics once the device is powered it looks pretty cool when lit up.
Yesterday I bought the first Dirt Rally on PC it is quite a contrast to Dirt4 in that it's considerably more difficult, none the less enjoying the game so far though I never truly feel I am in control of the car which adds to the challenge.
Not played 7 though I own 5 and have recently downloaded 6 on Game Pass. 5 is the only one I have spent time on though some reviews say its one of the weaker games in the series.
So the last two maps of Michigan don't have Garages or Petrol Stations? That makes the maps more challenging, but not impossible.
Just bought these two games in the sale, not played either before though i am a fan of the Red Faction series.
Do let me know what you think of Red Faction: Guerrilla: ReMarstered. I have almost pulled the trigger on it a few times. I loved the original game way back on the PS2.
Either way, hard to feel buyer's remorse over $2. I'm sure I'll revisit it at some point.
Also, Risk: Global Domination is free to play on Steam; I think it could be fun to have a MI6Community Risk tournament!
I was a big fan of Red faction 2 I completed it a few times. Guerilla has great reviews it is currently £4.79 on Xbox. As soon as its downloaded I will have a look.
Just had a quick look at Company of Heroes 2 on Steam is it similar to Command and Conquer?
It looks like in Company of Heroes you start with just units and capture command points to bring in new units.
Looks like they're similar in other ways though; if you just like combat and moving squads around the map, and dislike base building, you might be into Company of Heroes. There are good mechanics with regards to moving your units into cover, using special abilities like grenades, etc.
At some point I’d also like to do another play through Super Mario Odyssey, maybe at christmas.
Just playing Prey now, very creepy game I was not expecting to be abducted when I initially started playing. I think I can guess what the aliens are doing with the humans already looking at that stuff in the tubes X_X
Yeah that opening is unexpected and very chaotic. I love it.
It took me several attempts over a period of several years to finally start it fresh, anew, and stick with it. I ended up getting the Platinum/100% completion and absolutely loved my journey throughout. One of the finest Souls-type games I've played yet - and yes, the aesthetic and atmosphere are some of the best elements of the game. It's breathtaking. I actually missed those hauntingly detailed interiors and foggy streets throughout my playthrough of Elden Ring.
Don't let the difficulty intimidate you, especially as you start because that opening area is meant to be ridiculously challenging. Once you get a feel for the combat and make it past the first couple of bosses, you're set.
I agree. And while the open world was a risky yet still rewarding endeavor, I do feel like you cover a lot of vast expanses of little to see, which gets old, especially when you consider how many easter eggs and hidden bits still lurk within. Open worlds can be tricky when there's not much extraneous-yet-fun content available.
And yes, The Old Hunters DLC is from Bloodborne.
Totally. It really leans on the atmosphere when exploring rather than the specific things to do I think; luckily the atmosphere and environments are drop dead gorgeous.
One thing that's kind of cool I think is if you start at the southern tip of the world and look at the Erdtree, you can walk straight to it without a single loading screen (by way of Ruin Strewn Precipice, rather than Dectus Elevator) indicating that even when really far away it is a real object in the game rather than a background image that's rendered up when you get close to it.
Maybe just me, but I think that's awesome.
So there's an initial difficulty at the beginning, which then levels out?
I am currently flipping between Fallout 4 and Generation Zero, I am tracking my playthrough of both games for my channel. Whichever one I finish first, it will be replaced by Bloodborne.
Yeah, that's the big early going tip I got from most veterans when I began - the beginning is purposefully on the level of end game stuff, albeit in a fresh way and with weak gear because you really aren't prepared (which is funny, because that section is what put me off - and countless other players - initially). I would've stuck with it back in 2016 or so had I known that but I thought if this is this hard now, it's going to get even worse. Not the case. Once you're past that first hour or two, you'll know what to expect and have a perfect feel for how punishing the game will be.
And another good tip I'd share: go with the Hunter Axe in the beginning and never let it go. I exclusively used it throughout my entire runthrough, DLC included, never once switching it out.
As for Fallout 4, it was incredibly broken when I played it at launch and I'd bet money it still is, but having said that, I had a blast with it. There's a stupid amount of content and things to explore in it. It was one of the rare Bethesda titles I enjoyed playing in third person, only to quickly realize that the third person aiming was entirely off and I was constantly missing shots as a result. Returned to the game several years later to get 100% trophy completion, and sure enough, still a mess.
The first time I tried Fallout 4, it was all fine up until the Brotherhood Of Steel. At some point, I had to speak to an NPC, that just happened to be locked behind a blast door, with no way to get to them. This playthough, I haven't had any issues yet, though I haven't reached the part where the game blocked me from proceeding in that first attempt.
You know what? I think I had the EXACT same bug as you. I think I ended up having to go way, way, way back in some super old saves just to complete that and get those trophies. It was a real pain and soured my overall enjoyment near the end of the game.
If it happens this time, i'll stop my playthough there and then. I can't reload saves, because I have uploaded my playthrough in segments, so I would have to delete those videos, which I am not going to.
I don't blame you there. No sense in messing up your routine and plans because the game is still broken nearly seven years on.
It's a Bethesda game. It shouldn't be this way, but I am expecting to be screwed over again at some point.
Yeah, Todd, make another quip about the reputation your company has, as if it were just a meme.
