Cus screw being a proper online community when we can play off people's impatience for da mullah. Yeah, you can't pay to reduce those cooldowns, but it's one more method of making money quickly locked off for a while.

GTA online has been a series of fun updates locked behind micromacrotransactions

It's really frustrating because the game tries to force you into either paying an extraordinary amount of money for 30 minutes of fun, or dedicating tens of hours to grinding out the same few missions to maximise earnings

I played GTAO for easily over 100 hours and I was almost perpetually broke, I could never afford almost anything

Oh, I'm very easily over 1000 hours. I have the most stuff on PC - including the most expensive yacht for less than half thanks to taking advantage of offers - but on the Xbox One version I have the Oppressor. It took me ages to get the money for all of it - since I only really ever take on the races unless contact missions are on the double.

I never actually bothered with GTA Online, for me, GTA5 was always about the main story.

Playing Zelda BoTW and GT Sport when I can be bothered to load up the PS4. Currently making my way up to Zoras Domain, been exploring the central and south eastern parts for around 35 hours so it feels about time to tackle a Divine Beast. Got a lot of the DLC armour as well although I was more or less darting around Central Hyrule as there's just a couple of Guardians roaming the plains!

GT Sport is really good but Zelda is winning the battle for my attention at the moment, should play some more GT Sport tomorrow or Xenoblade Chronicles 2 really. Should have better stuff to do when I've got a week off work but I'm opting to spend some time catching up on games, feels like I've got so little time when I'm at work a big chunk of the week so I'm making up for it :)

Done with New Vegas. At least for the time being. Explored most areas but there are still quite a few. Quite a few I can't really be bothered looking into because there doesn't tend to be much there or there's just a ton of loot I don't need anymore. There's also (iirc) one more DLC campaign I haven't done yet but I have not really enjoyed the DLC for the most part - especially not Lonesome Road. Gauntlet with dark courier battle at the end (except my speech was maxed so I didn't have to fight him).

Now I'm playing Vampire Masquerade Bloodlines which I only intended to dip into a little bit but now I'm kinda hooked.

Got hit with a bastard of a cold this week and so being as I'm a man everything ground to a halt. I did manage to begin the first game in the Naruto Trilogy, however. Slow burner, but thoroughly entertaining. Fights are awesome.

With shovel skills like that you'll fair well in the impending zombie apocalypse. :slol:

Played a few hours of GT Sport today, done a good chunk of the offline cups mainly so I can get some cars and learn the tracks so I know my way around them when I do venture online.

Just started Layers of Fear (PC). At first it felt a bit boring, one of those games where there are items and draws to open just for the sake of realism. But after a short while it gets a bit spooky...
Got this for free, which is utterly brilliant. PC games :wub:

Had to give up on Knack 2. Had completed it (twice) but was trying to go for the platinum trophy. Unfortunately I missed one of the trophies first time round but when I went back to the particular chapter to get it, it wouldn't unlock. I even started the game again but when I reached the point, still wouldn't unlock. Feel slightly robbed as there were not many more trophies to get. Ah well.

Yes?

Just started World Conqueror X, I really like these types of games so I expect to rack up quite a few hours on it

Been on Game Dev Tycoon again for the first time in ages, and racked up about four hours on it. Time sure does fly when managing a virtual business.

I picked up Layers when it was still in early access and thoroughly enjoyed it. Need to play it again sometime as lots of additional rooms and puzzles have been added since then.

Gone back to Assassin's Creed Origins over the weekend after playing a bit before Christmas and then dropping it, I'm finding it really fun.
The game looks astounding at times and the games has ship to ship combat which I didn't know about and it was a great surprise when I found out. The game certainly reminds me of Skyrim with that one more quest feeling and then realise you've spend 4 hours on the game.

With rumours going around that the next AC will be set in Japan I hope they stick to a new AC game every two years and the extra development time really did help this series.

I'm play Ass Creed Syndicate. I'm really enjoying this one, much better than that shite affair Unity was.

Final Fantasy XV

I'm enjoying it, even though I shouldn't be. It's an absolute mess in terms of story and pacing (one villain got a hyuuuuge intro and special boss music only to die for real 4 minutes later when I crushed him utterly) but the moment to moment gameplay is fun and the 4 main characters are charmingly goofy. It also looks in-fucking-credibe on High settings. Seriously, the second main area is jawdropping.

Can see me losing a lot of time to this.
