I haven't played it for months. I guess a lot of work has been done since then.

After finishing all the routes in Three Houses the other day, I started on Fire Emblem 1 which I'm pretty much just playing on stream. Also got a bit nostalgic and played a bit of Fire Emblem 7 today. Was my first taste of the series. Doing a Hector Hard Mode playthrough which I don't think I've completed before.

Not sure if this is really the place, but has anyone played Life Is Strange 2? It's on sale on Steam and I'm thinking about buying it, but wanted to get some impressions first.

I played the first ep which was great. The general impressions are that it's a much more mature and well written series than the first but didn't have as many easily marketable features so has had less of a cultural impact.

I had to leave that crew on DayZ, the racism was getting way out of hand. I discovered all 3 are English, 1 is from Hartlepool and other one is from Bolton I think and third I don't know but sounded more 'southern England'

Anyway after quite a racist filled Sunday I complained a bit about it then on Tuesday and we had a nice banter filled but non racist time, I genuinely enjoyed myself. We made a base and things were ticking along nicely. Then I logged on Last night and the Racism was in full flow, the gamit went from joking about "Paki Bashing" (we should look for a Paki Zombie and bash him), to casual racism against black people stealing again, now I had now made up my mind that I'm done with this group (worryingly they not all friends they met in the game). The coup de grais was one guy who's usually queit enough who got killed and after respawning and making his way back another player killed him and he was screaming "you f**king N-word" down the mic over and over. I swiftly left the game and party chat and reported them and also wrote them all a message on Xbox messenger that I can't tolerate any sort of Racism that's so easily referenced to and laughed about.

My nickname in game was 'Irish', I was also told all I eat are potatoes, asked can I tarmac driveways and also asked last night was I in the IRA, now, all of this is grand to me, I'm used to it after all these years and none of it effected me in any way but I couldn't and can't in good conscience play with people like this, I wouldn't befriend them in real life so I'll not countenance it online. I'm annoyed that I had to leave because DayZ in a crew is 100 times better than solo.

That's terrible, I'm sorry you were exposed to all that. Sounds like you dealt with it well though.

This sort of gooseberry fool is one of the reasons I'm not more into online gaming. I play Overwatch every now and again and I swear every single time someone is on mic it's racist abuse they're shouting. I was in a D2 clan for a while and one of the guys started using racist language, just super casually. It's strawberry floating bizarre (or not) how when you remove accountability a huge percentage of people revert back to needlessly cruel hate speech.

I wasn't effected at all by any of it but I think what happened was, I complained that the racist language was too much on Sunday night, after all we all just met that weekend, then on Tuesday we all played and I think they made a sub conscious effort to just not go there and it was ok. Then they all played Wednesday without me (I was playing Sea of Thieves with my daughter) and I was late getting on last night so I think the racism was not only normalized among them but also increased because they realized they all liked to partake in it.

I'd hope my message to them will make some of them rethink how they interact or indeed think about what they are saying but I'll no doubt be called a 'snow flake' or something of that sort.

Ugh. :dread:

Online games with randoms just don't appeal to me and stuff like this is one of the major factors. I think the last time I played any serious amount of online stuff was way back when RTCW came out - even then the amount of people sending in game abuse messages was getting too much, and that was before voice comms really caught on :fp:

Return to Castle Wolfenstein - a great FPS from 2001. Had an excellent team based multiplayer mode that I played to death for about 18 months (was even in a clan for quite a while!)

Batman: Arkham Knight.

I heard this game had a focus on the Batmobile but I was still ill-prepared to how much the Caped Crusader pined for his sluggish, stupid car. I turned the game off when in an attempt to rescue a hostage from a building, the so-called Worlds Greatest Detective decided that instead of stealth, the optimal strategy was to get his car and pull a wall down.

Bah.

Minish Cap. The third dungeon sucks but that's the only bad part I've experienced so far, and the powerup we get from it is an admittedly cool one. I'm now at the boss of the next dungeon the giant water ChuChu. The part before that dungeon where we have to collect a bunch of mislaid library books is probably my favourite Zelda miniquest, besides maybe Subrosia's dancing in Oracle of Seasons.

The over reliance of batmobile killed the fun for me. Hated the riddler car puzzles. It’s like the developers were so proud of it they forced the players to enjoy it as much as they did. And the constant tank fighting :dread:

So, I had the N-word screamer blocked but the other 2 replied via message. One of them said he’s sorry I was offended and that he thinks it’s brave that I told him I was and said that he’s sorry to see me leave the group.

The other one laughably (but predictably) wrote “fair enough but we’re not actually Racist” I pointed out what he and others said to prove the point that they are and he said “whatever, I’ll plant a potato in your honour, stop messaging us too.” :lol:

He’s also now blocked.

They sound like stand-up citizens.

Been playing AC Odyssey this morning before I head into work. I'm enjoying it, very much so, but good grief there is so much to do. I still think Origins is the better game overall. It felt more focused than Odyssey.
