    No Man's Sky - a procedurally generated sand box space exploration game

    180 if I remember correctly. Back then you could just wait in a cave on a hazardous planet to get the achievement for 10(?) hours spent on one.

    No Man's Sky - a procedurally generated sand box space exploration game

    I played this game at launch. Completed it, 100% achievements, and haven't touched it since outside of logging in for a few minutes to see what an update did. Since it has VR support, I bought it on Steam and will give it another go at some point. It looks like an entirely different game now.

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    Aside from that, I found all the styles useful, but Single bladed definitely felt the best to me and offered the highest single strike damage. Double bladed does less damage per strike, but offers better crowd control when surrounded by multiple enemies, and can throw off some enemies when...

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    Played this game on PS4, then again on PC... then again on PS5. I have 100% with all Achievements each version. I think it was a perfect storm of excellent game, being starved of good old school single player experience, and being utterly fed up with the saturation of mile-wide, inch-deep...

    Sniper Elite 5

    My opinion is just that, MY OPINION, it's importance is debatable at best. You are coming in mid-conversation, but certainly not worth the argument my original statement has drummed up.

    Planet Crafter

    As of April 2022, this game is in Early Access and currently on sale on Steam for $18. Planet Crafter is a "Subnautica in space" type of game where you land on a barren planet tasked with Teraforming it to sustain life. There is resource management, crafting, progression seen throughout the...

    Destiny 2

    I'm an old fart (54) and I work too freaking much (avg 70hrs a week since Covid). Tried it with a buddy of mine, his 2 sons and a couple of LFG guys. No real issues until the third encounter, then we hit a brick wall. The LFG'ers kept taking relics not assigned to them, so people wouldn't...

    Sniper Elite 5

    They are SP games, just SP games with an in-game store. They are formula built to cater to people's compulsions; based on the same psych research that the 'games as a service' & mobile titles use. They tend to be light on story and heavy on leveling up. For all these reasons I tend to lump...

    Sniper Elite 5

    You're kidding me, right? One game on that entire list is yet to be released; with two others being relatively recent. This list dates back to 1982!! If we're going to take into account every game that has every been made, then sure there are more SP than MP, heavily weighted prior to 2015...

    Sniper Elite 5

    If we're comparing budgets they do. Tons of 8 hour long Indie games, child focused Nintendo style games... but Mass Effect or Dishonored caliber games, not even close. Needless argument either way.

    Destiny 2

    I have enjoyed the story elements so far, and some of the gameplay, but admittedly not the new economy or mechanics. A lot of tweaking needed... I am just so tired of gameplay that funnels you into their microtransactions, it's just a broken record anymore. Took all of last Season off and have...

    Sniper Elite 5

    I've enjoyed all of these thus far, with each one getting better. Too few SP games anymore, let alone stealth SP games, so I'll probably take the chance and pre-order.

    Horizon Forbidden West

    Put about 4.5 hours in last night (release day) Had replayed HZD on PC to refresh myself on the story, so not having an FOV slider or M&KB was painfully jarring at first. The climbing mechanics could certainly use some polish, the Focus spamming (with chime) has already gotten irritating, and...

    Destiny 2

    It's been closer to 3-4 months for me, but same issue. The core gameplay mechanics are polished and feel good to play; especially when I can play with friends the game is fun. The content however, has not been what I consider "content". Blips of it here and there, like Beyond Light, but too...

    Destiny 2

    Multiple articles have mentioned Bungie's criteria of remaining independent both in multi-platform release, and in creative choice... for Destiny 2. Future IP's & releases will undoubtedly be under Sony's umbrella. Naturally only time will tell. Ironically, since she is technically a Sony...

    Outriders (Bulletstorm developer)

    I'm sure I'll get there soon enough, but that's kind of what I was wanting out of this game. Enough to occupy me for a couple weeks as a break from Destiny 2. Then enough regular content to come back to a couple times a year.

    Outriders (Bulletstorm developer)

    Anyone still playing this? I picked it up on a Steam Sale after New Horizons dropped and have been enjoying it. Needs more content and some quality of life improvements, but the gameplay is fun. I'm at level 46 with a Pyromancer and still trying to find the perfect build. Started characters...

    Haven't talked to him in too long. Been on a break from Destiny, off playing Outriders with a buddy. I'll have to come back and get all the new goodies at some point.

    Destiny 2

    Sounds like a lot of us are in the same place. I haven't even hit the level cap this Season (close though). If Banshee or Xur has a god roll I'll log in, otherwise I've been off playing other games or working. Looked at other new games, but don't want to have more than one MMO in my life, and...

    Destiny 2

    My Clan and I made it into a Youtuber's video... and by "made it in" I mean "you can watch us getting trashed over and over again" lol. Benny, who is a skilled PvP'er, was pulling out some old favorites from his Vault (Midnight Coup in this case) and seeing what they were like in the...

    Destiny 2

    So I joined a tiny little Clan that is mainly just a buddy of mine, his two pre-teen sons, and one or two others. I haven't had this much fun inside Destiny in I don't know how long. We'll do a Raid or Nightfall or whatever, but inevitably end up in a Rumble match with each other where...

    Far Cry 6

    Weapon mods are class specific, so if you unlock the Armor Piercing mod (for example) on an Assault Rifle, it will be free to install on any other AR. Handy for sure.

    Destiny 2

    Yikes, that's no good. Haven't logged in for about a week as I've been off playing Far Cry 6 (Seasonal events tend to be too grindy for me anyway), so we'll have to see what I run into next time I'm on.

    Far Cry 6

    Largely pointless, however Alligators, Jaguars and Coyotes can be farmed for "Alpha Meat" which can be exchanged for Industrial Circuits; a hot commodity for the highest level weapon mods in the game. Mythical animals can be farmed for this after you've killed them for the first time, and...

    Far Cry 6

    Unfortunately once you put Armor Piercing on, it makes all the other ammo types apart from EMP, moot. They can be fun, but are largely just for memes.

    Far Cry 6

    I partially ruined the game for myself early on. Ran up into the City when I was still a Rank 3 and started looting enemy chests. Had to sneak since they would have 1 shot me at the point, but my first two weapons were the SSGP-58 and the MBP .50; the best AR and Sniper in the game (even...

    Far Cry 6

    This is true, if your goal is travel alone, though the Air Drop feature may be even faster. However he was talking about unlocking new vehicles. If you're a Completionist (like me), standing out front of a Base and waiting will net you most ground vehicles, as they seem to gravitate to you...

    Far Cry 6

    Except for Military vehicles. Those still need to be taken to a Base to unlock. Civilian vehicles only require a scan.

    Far Cry 6

    Probably old news for some of you, but I don't think I can play this game without a bow with EMP rounds equipped anymore. Takes down tanks and helicopters in one shot, barely damages them so I can then run up and hijack them to take back to my base to unlock in collections... or just turn the...

    Loaded up Shattered Throne yesterday and finally polished off my Ager Scepter and Lorentz Driver Catalysts in the Thrall room. Scepter is awesome for add clear. In fact, here is an interesting video for the Warlock mains (can also translate to other classes to a large degree): One of my...

    Deathloop (Arkane Studios)

    Man, anything by Arcane gets my attention... but this gives me Bioshock meets Left4dead vibes. That may be what the market seems to like at the moment, but it really isn't my thing. Dishonored and Prey were incredible, more of that would have been my choice, but maybe they are trying to...

    Destiny 2

    So if the Main Ingredient mentioned above is the god roll for PvP, then according to Ehoar, the Cartesean with Vorpal, Accelerated Coils & a Charge Masterwork is the best straight up DPS Fusion for PvE. That said, if you're just getting the stacks of Particle Deconstruction up and switching...

    Yes, y'all need to drop whatever and go see Xur NOW! He has several god rolls (in the Tower this week). For starters, there is this: Not sure this could roll any better (for PvP). If you're not sure why, then check out this: He also has a rather nice Dire Promise and Bottom Dollar...

    Destiny 2

    During Season of the Slicer, he had the same 3 Tier unlock system as all the other Seasonal Activities have had. Through that, and the Seasons narrative, you could get the Override activity. This becomes a large icon on the left of the Helm's map. That activity is the only place we can still...
