Will try to play some more Mafia 3 and hopefully some Overwatch if I can get my nephews off my XB1 long enough for me to play.   Going to try out ESO since the One Tameriel update has rolled out to the consoles


What's on your gaming agenda

Yup.  I can't wait to see this.

Fall 2017, PS4 and XB1 (sadly, not listed for PC)

Developed by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world will also provide the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience.

I'm sure it will hit PC and Scorpio in 2017, right?

Of course.  They want to get that second-wave money of people double dipping like they did for GTA V.

Also, kind of sad that they called it Red Dead Redemption 2, instead of changing up the last name again.  Red Dead Retribution?  Red Dead Revenge?  Red Dead Resurrection?  Red Dead Risen?  Red Dead Ranchhand?  Red Dead Repoman?  Red Dead Rumbleinthebronx?  

Yes makes me think it's a sequel

Actually, I'm leaning towards prequel dealing with Dutch's gang

It's the weekend, so what's on your agenda.  I'm planning on getting some more time with Mafia 3.  The game play is really repetitive for taking over districts, but the story is compelling enough to keep me playing.   More Overwatch as I try to get more of the Halloween skins.   
50  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia 3 Confirmed - More info @ Gamescom - Trailer Added on: October 10, 2016, 12:04:33 PM
So I went in and brought it although 2K didn't release review copies apparently there was a massive day 1 patch.   Anyway, I played most of the weekend and unlocked all three Underbosses and captured their 3 zones and I'm starting on my 4th zone now

First the bad

I'm playing on the XB1 and this game has some bad graphic glitches at time.   Sometime the rain looks great, but other times it can wash everything out.  There are other weird anomalies that I'm sure will be patched

Be prepared to drive around ALOT.   You'll be traveling to the Bayou a great deal to handle mission for your Underbosses and their Lieutenants to increase their earning and their loyalty.  Seriously some of those trips are extremely long running into the 3-5 minute range to get there.  If you happen to die on a mission be prepared to run back from the closest safe house

The AI can be pretty weak at times, but this could be tied to the difficulty.  I'm playing on the default medium and I've seen the AI totally ignore me even if I'm in their line of sight.

Police chase AI can be a little bit too good, but I've learned that jumping the into any body of water will save your bacon 9 times out of 10


Now the good

Gunplay feels good in this game.  While the AI can appear to be stupid at times, but in a gun fight they will flank you.   You just can't sit on one place and snipe

Default driving works for me.   I tried the simulation and it was a challenge I didn't need, so I set back to the default

Atmosphere of game is excellent.  Example I just finished a mission, but was being pursued by the Dixie Mafia.  I ran into a store for a health kit in the Bayou, but it was Whites Only.  The owner told me to get out, but I pushed him out the way which led to him calling the police.  The Dixie Mafia and the Police are now swarming this store.   I actually had to use one of my Marker to get a crew of Vito's men to show up to help me get out.  It was pretty intensive and fun.  Btw, the owner of the store ended up getting some buckshot from my sawed off

Story and they way it's being told is fucking awesome.  Its being shown as sort of a documentary.   I actually have an idea of where its going, but I won't spoil anything with my speculations


Lastly, touching on atmosphere again.  Hanger 13 didn't pull any punches with setting they touch on some subjects that might make people feel uncomfortable and this is certainly a game I wouldn't let a child play unless they can understand the subject matter.   Besides racism this game touches on feminism, sex and drug use.

Right now I'm giving this game a 7 out of 10

Oh jztemple your complaint about running back to stash cash will be addressed once you unlock a certain underboss

51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 10/7/16 on: October 07, 2016, 02:34:58 PM
After watching several live streams of Mafia 3 I decided to take the plunge after all, so I'll be playing along with some Battleborn which I am finding  fun again and Overwatch



What do you have planned for this weekend
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (Oct 2, 2016...late edition) on: October 06, 2016, 01:57:39 PM
Nada it was going to be Mafia 3 but the lack of review copies has made me wary.  I'll wait for reviews
53  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia 3 Confirmed - More info @ Gamescom - Trailer Added on: October 02, 2016, 08:10:29 PM
2K isn't sending out review copies for this game.  That spells trouble in my book.  Will be waiting on reviews prior to purchasing
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 9/30/16 Edition on: September 30, 2016, 10:34:01 AM
I'll be playing WoW mainly and will be DMing a one shot D&D game for a few teens that got interested in playing after watching Critical Role.   They've never played so I'm going to show them the ropes and they can continue with one of them taking over DMing.  I don't have to time to commit to long term Campaign


Will also binge watch Luke Cage on Netflix
55  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Whatchu buyin' this week, Willis? (Sept 25, 2016) on: September 26, 2016, 01:47:14 PM
Nada.. I'll pick up Xcom 2 on the XB1 someday
56  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 9/23/16 Edition on: September 23, 2016, 01:20:28 PM
Maybe some WoW if not that I'll try to get in some Bioshock Remastered on the PC. 


Anyway, what's on your agenda

went ahead and grabbed this for xb1, not big on the 30fps or the catch up ai but had fun otherwise.  Really wish my wheel wasn't invalid though

Hate rubber band ai.
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (9/18/16) on: September 19, 2016, 03:46:43 PM
nada..  my next game will be Mafia 3
59  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 9/16/15 Edition on: September 16, 2016, 10:05:06 AM
I'll be playing mostly WoW Legion and will fire up Bioshock Remasted on PC too.   I will also turn in my Note 7 on Saturday and having ATT reactivate ,my old phone.  uncertain what my next upgrade will be at this point.  I'll wait to see what Google show with the next Nexus.


Anyway, what on tap with you?

Underworld: Blood Wars   Yup, another one   Love Kate Beckinsale, but wow are they milking this thing out
61  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (9/4/16) on: September 06, 2016, 06:04:53 PM
Nada.  My next purchase will probably be Mafia 3
62  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 8/26/16 Edition on: August 26, 2016, 11:01:09 AM
Mostly WoW as the Invasion XP is just to good at moment.  I've leveled 4 alts to 100 just on Invasion XP.  Might sneak in some Overwatch but might love affair with that game is almost at a end
What do you have planned?
63  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 8/19/16 Edition on: August 19, 2016, 12:58:07 PM
it's plenty of WoW for me with some Overwatch thrown in for good measure.  Those Invasion are great XP for leveling alts. 


What do you have plan for this weekend

Amen

New Gamescom Trailer  If you hate spoilers I wouldn't watch as it shows what happens and why Clay goes after the mob
66  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movie] Suicide Squad on: August 16, 2016, 11:53:52 AM
Saw it and mostly enjoyed it.  Problems with the story telling hurt it badly.  Also, they made most of the Suicide Squad into sort of heroes to make the likable to the viewing audience, but most of the them in the comics are sociopaths and without remorse.  Honestly, Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Alfrie Woodard carried this movie.  Also, to a lesser extent Jared Leto who I think actually did a good job as the Joker

67  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 8/12/16 Edition on: August 12, 2016, 11:16:50 AM
Its the weekend and hopefully between weekend chores you'll get a chance to do some gaming.  I have WoW lined up (damn, game has its hooks into me again) and more of Overwatch as I try to grind for some more of the timed exclusive Olympics skins that can't be brought with in-game currency


What are you planning to play

I'm shocked at how good it looks for version 0.0.7.  This is pretty feature complete for such an early build!

Ron I think you need to arrange a visit to write a story about this game and maybe get more info   drool
69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 8/5/16 - Suicide Squad Edition on: August 05, 2016, 11:44:04 AM
Despite the negative critic reviews I'm planning to see Suicide Squad on Saturday or Sunday, but I'llo be playing WoW with some Overwatch unless Blizzard gets hit with ANOTHER DDoS attack

Gabriel Knight Sins of the Father.  I had no previous experience with this series, but I picked this up because I wanted something new to play. Loved the game

My love affair with Overwatch is coming to an end I think, so I will be playing some WoW till August 1st when my subscription runs out.   Might boot up Red Dead Redemption too

What are you playing this weekend?

Probably will be more Overwatch with a great deal of time playing Ana.  Will try to get in some more Red Dead Redemption too


What's on your agenda for this weekend. 
75  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Playlist - 7/15/16 Edition on: July 15, 2016, 01:38:38 PM
Still engrossed with Overwatch and still replaying Red Dead Redemption on the XB1.  Probably will mainline Stranger Things on Netflix too


Whats on tap for you

Ah cool, thanks for the reply  icon_biggrin Yeah I was hoping to move more into hosting, rather than renting. How much RAM and CPU is necessary to run Minecraft and CS:GO?  icon_cool

I think CS: GO would be the more intensive of the two, so you would probably want that max for that type of server.  Here's a reddit  thread discussing it https://www.reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/2zkq2q/server_requirements_to_host_a_csgo_server/

Waiting on reviews for Necropolis: A Diabolical Dungeon Delve.  I'm a fan of Harebrained Studios and typically these type of games don't appeal to me but I like the art style and the humor of the game.
79  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend playlist - 7/8 edition on: July 08, 2016, 03:30:47 PM
Overwatch and with Red Dead Redemption now being backwards compatible on the XB1 I might just play my copy for nostalgia sake
80  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Pokemon Go on: July 07, 2016, 11:41:08 AM
Is now available in the US and for those uninitiated with this game its a AR game about catching Pokemon.  Apparently, any caught Pokemon can't be used in battles against other players yet, but it's supposed to be coming.  You can train you Pokemon in the gym

Anyone looking to try this?
