I found that the hunting grounds were a huge help once you could afford the required weapons.  Instant robo-respawns for easier exp/item gains is obvious, but getting tasked with learning new methods of hunting is also very helpful.

One detail I noticed and it may be the first time it's been done in a game like this.  If you dog paddle in a river, you'll float downstream.  Same thing with the fish after you've shot them.

From what I have seen of the SP on Twitch, no.  Not as good as TF2 by any stretch.  It's not even as engaging as the Dynasty Warriors games.  It's a handful of the MP maps with a few different objectives and a mix of the hero and fodder enemies with an occasional boss.

Fwiw, you can find some people streaming this early on Twitch now.  I watched someone and the environments look pretty amazing.

I guess you can mark me down as your Mass Effect guinea pig.  I have bought a key for it from GMG and that origin access thing.

Had a good weekend of co-op with E9/BJ and then Punisher.  This game is good solo, but with friends, it's great.  Had a nice run with E9 taking out the 3 trainers mission in those two bases.  Enjoyably confused trying to figure out how to pass a mission with a "stay undetected" requirement with BJ/E9 and making a nice getaway with a target along for the ride, in a chopper from a mountain top base.    

The difference between solo/co-op is striking enough that I really don't want to do as much solo and have been saving up the missions for the multiplayer sessions I can get.

Fwiw, they are getting closer to having the WiiU version running in a PC emulator.... I've been tempted to get a copy, but TBH, I'm in no rush.

I think they are building of the ending of the first, where you ended up taking a large army of controlled orcs against the enemy.

Same here for GR Wildlands.  Ready to go, although with Horizon out, it will be a tough choice.

Doubtful I'll get much time to game at all as we are going to take an overnight at our place up in the woods.  If I do, it would be Horizon.

Due to birthday party goings-on, I had almost no time to play anything.  Just a smidge of Witcher 3, BF1 and Watchdogs 2 as a demonstration of the new PC's capabilities.  If I had more time, it would be getting deeper into the Witcher 3 on PC.  Got far on PS4 last year, but I wanted to play without the console's limitations and from the start on the hardest difficulty.

That's the same problem I have with it.  I may do it just for the Witness and give away everything else.

As far as I could tell the AI are completely invisible to the enemy until you engage without suppressor, are seen or tell them to open fire.  They were almost invisible to me in the sense that I rarely noticed them when I wasn't deliberately trying to take advantage of them.  Also unlike other games with AI squadmates that follow you, these guys actually kill stuff. 

Could be they are.  I was sneaking around a base at one point when the enemy caught on I was there.  Within a few moments, I heard the "man down!" from one of my team mates as he had been ambushed by someone who was a moment before right next to him.  Either the friendly AI is very good at stealth or the enemy is blind to a dude hiding in a bush in broad daylight. 
22  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands (from Tom Clancy's Ubisoft) on: February 04, 2017, 09:10:26 PM
Played a bit of the game solo and the friendly ai needs a bit of work.  They are pretty capable of holding their own in a firefight but altogether useless when you want your sniper to hold and do overwatch while the assault guys approach.  Maybe I'm missing something though, as I don't see a way to command anyone individually.  Game is still pretty fun and I can see the potential for this in co-op.  I am also going to be getting this, whether directly or through the recent prom from nVidia.  If you see me online on PC, throw me an invite.

Invitations sent, hopefully.  The page errored out first time I tried it and gave me a "not allowed to use this page" garbage.  If the last beta invite experience from For Honor is any indication, it may take a while before you see it pop up in email or in the client.

Also did not get in with the beta, sadly.  I am already eyeing a 1070 to replace the GPU I have, so if I end up pulling the trigger, they'll toss in a free game, either this or For Honor.  I already played that and while it's fun, I don't think it's my cup of tea. 
29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4, XB1, PC] Battlefield 1 (Alt-history WW1) on: January 30, 2017, 12:41:08 AM
Played a bit of this in the back to basics mode.  For anyone who complained of how every gun feels more like WW2, this is the mode to play.  You are limited to a small handful of weapons, mostly bolt action.  There are limited number of vehicles and the game is a lot more infantry focused again.  Played a lot of it Saturday night with a small group of friends and had a lot of fun. 
30  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: on: January 28, 2017, 02:55:21 AM
I'm reservedly excited for this.  The open world freedom with long term effects on your enemies along with co-op sounds like a great idea.  The lack of intelligent AI for the SP has me a little worried though.

The more I read about this, the less interested I become.  I'm sure I'll pick one up later in its lifecycle when there are more games and it's cheaper, but it's certainly not a Day 1 pickup.
I had a similar idea about the Wiiu and all it ended up was a short moment when I could have got one super cheap and had an impulse to buy it.  Instead, they ran out and I had already coming off the urge and convinced myself it would only gather up dust in the end.  I could see myself buying a Switch in a few years though, especially as a replacement for the Vita after the games finally stop coming.
35  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Games finished 2017 edition on: January 10, 2017, 03:15:14 PM
My gaming time gets shorter, my gaming backlog keeps growing and apparently, I have the attention span of a blue tang.  My games finished last year are too pathetic to mention, so I won't.

I am currently playing (with no promise or hope of finishing) the following:

Mafia 3 (already feeling the tedium set in now that the honeymoon phase is over)
Just Cause 3 (re-purchased for the DLC I will likely never experience)
Watch Dogs 2 (This one really feeds my gaming need to get distracted)
Factorio (can one complete a game such as this)
XCOM 2 (have not started, but given it's slow methodical nature, unlikely to be beaten this year or any other)
COD Infinite Warfare (only game I have a slim chance of finishing due to the usual length of CoD campaigns)
Titanfall 2 (see above)
Rocksmith (I only aspire to be able to play a few songs to 90%)
SteamWorld Heist (same rule as applied to XCOM)
Hitman (just started, but a slow game experience so far)

Back burner with the slim chance of returning
Deus Ex Mankind Divided (sadly, not as taken as I hoped)

It must have hit some serious development snags to be canned after the last push at E3.  It looked interesting.

I guess I can mark Mafia 3 of the "biggest disappointment" list, and move it to the dishonorary list.  They patched in support for the CPU and  it's actually playable.

$35 on amazon today. That's enough to make me think about it.
I saw that and also thought about it, quite heavily, in fact. Not sure I have the drive to stick with a long RPG right now though.

Mostly stick with 1080p, but the biggest rationale I had for not upgrading is I have the 4gb variant and haven't seen a $2-300 card that warrants the cost vs performance increase.
