The Elder Scrolls games have been my favorite series of games since Morrowind. By a long shot. What's weird to think about is that with these games taking longer and longer to make, and me being currently in my 50's, the next one could very well end up being my last one.

From almost childlike wonder to the grave in the span of 4 games. There's today's happy thought.

Ya I get it. I’m 52, not yet old but not young, and have found myself thinking of many things in life that way. Not intentionally mind you…it just sort of pops into my head. A bit of an odd stage of life.

Otherside did Underworld Ascendant. I backed their Kickstarter based on the big names in the company and what they were proposing through the campaign (basically a modern remake of Underworld with all kinds of depth, living world, etc). I had faith in those big names. My mistake! The game was nothing like they proposed. It sort of ended up like a bad tech demo of some other game.

Anyway, I learned my lesson. Don’t put your money behind names, put it with production.

Went with a 42 inch LG C2 with my new build. Came from a 24. The only downside I can imagine is my new jaw pain from having my mouth hang open at how beautiful everything looks and plays. If you have the GPU to push it, you won't regret it.

I love so many hot sauces and I'll take all of these. Despite trying the hottest of the hot to the flavor filled mild, if I was stuck on a desert island and had to choose one, its basic Tabasco for me!

Hades is a game I should have no interest in... rogue like, very fast paced, works best with a controller. Just not my kind of game at all. I went ahead and tried it after reading some glowing reviews and it's now in my top 10 of all time, maybe top 5. Ditch the kb/m and go to the controller (this is from a kb/m or die guy) and the game will play so much better for you. The "last" fight will just take a bit of practice and the right combo of weapon and skills. Remember dying isn't all that bad in Hades.

I can't believe I almost missed out on this masterpiece because it ticked all the wrong boxes for me. Looking forward to the next Hades-like.

I can't wait to play this... in 2022/3 with a generation of graphics cards that does not need 850 watts and burns down the house because of heat problems and because of bad design choices... See you then, CP 2077.

I’ve been planning a 5900x/6800xt new build (still on a 5820k/980ti) but by the time they are in stock, the next generation might be close enough to just wait it out. AMD is going 5nm for that one sooooo Thinking

Right there with you Blue. Moved one week ago and have a ton of crap I haven’t seen in years laying around. My wife has approximately 2476 jackets...she wears 3, etc etc. it’s sort of calming to hear everybody that moves pretty much goes through the same process of purging useless junk you’ve somehow accumulated over the years.

RIP-Gunnar-man. It's never easy to lose a member of the family. Take heart in the wonderful life you were able to provide to him.

Looks great so far! I'm hoping the non-shooty side of things has some nice depth to it. From other videos it looks like they're putting real effort into the scavenging/business game play which IMO will keep me wanting more.

Enjoyed the first but didn't love it. Didn't play the DC. I, like many have said here, thought the loot, itemization system was it's biggest flaw. In general, I'm not a fan of opening the 374th lockbox that you had to fight to get to and find another pair of worn leather gloves, 2 empty cans, and a slice of cheese... over, and over, and over. I know hand placed loot has issues with multiple replays but I'd rather have it in my RPGs.

*"cloth maps or posters or what not. The excitement of waiting for the release. Driving to the mall and buying it. Driving home and opening it."

Hell yeah, the Ultima VI Britannia map was hung from my wall for many years, there was a DOOM level set that came with a sick skull poster that was up there too.

I remember where I used to live, there was a video game rental shop (before Blockbuster and what have you) and they actually rented PC games (with the box). I used to wade through those games like I do with record shopping.

Still one of my favorite games from that era was The Magic Candle, that came with an awesome map as well (and manual).

Here's the map - http://magiccandle.wumple.com/files/mc1/mc1map.jpg It was one of the few games I remember where you actually needed to camp and some could go hunt, some could keep watch over the camp while others rested, etc - and later in the game it was imperative to split up party members for certain quests/tasks.

Just looking at that map and thinking of the Ultima cloth map gets me all tingley inside. I can see myself sitting in front of the computer, late at night, just excited as heck to find out what adventures are waiting in those treacherous lands.

About 5 more years and Elite Dangerous might actually be a game instead of the empty, dead shell of a game I got conned into buying at release.

An interesting period of time to read about. My WW2 book collection grew for many years, but I was morbidly fascinated by all of it - I have memoirs told from perspectives of multiple sides, tombs on specific aircraft or other technology, and any movie I could get my hands (including hard to find foreign imports from Finland and Japan). At the human no one truly wanted to kill another human, but had to given their situations - they describe horrors I never hope to witness. It astonishes me more how leaders on all sides manipulate people to do what is nothing more than legalized murder (which is what one WW1 person had the courage to say) - something that the Smedley Butler touched on as well (who was heroic for telling the truth). It's still sad today to see those truths more relevant than ever since war benefits the few who profit off manipulation and death;. The madness of Imperialism.

Here is an account of Heinrich Severloh: Just a 20 year old kid thrown into the war, he became known as the "Beast of Omaha" and was one of the last Machine Gunners still firing over an insane 9 hours. He and 2 others managed to survive. He later became friends with David Silva much later after the war who was shot on a part of the landing 3 times.

Interesting read Task. Thanks for posting.

I gave up toward the end. There was something about the levelling and loot which meant that I never felt like I was actually getting any stronger, and all the weapons felt similar without lacking any real identity or rareness that made them interesting.

I didn't find the story particularly engaging either.


Totally agree. And the massive, over worded lore dump had me falling asleep. Load times were a joke. Homogenized classes. Ugh. Having classes that sucked at certain things or weren't able to do some tasks made for interesting strategy. Muscle wizard?! WTF Sawyer?!

I wanted to love this game more then any other in recent memory. BG2 had its flaws but I loved it and was really waiting for POE to kick butt. Maybe they'll save the day with 2 but I'm waiting on this one.

Anybody put time into Evochron Legacy? Apparently it's an Elite/X game with depth, all done by one guy. Haven't had the time to explore it yet but going to give it a shot after my Witcher 3 playthrough is done. There's a demo as well.
