Preloading Skyrim in late 2016. Hilarious xD

Strangely excited...

So is this an entirely separate installation? In which case save games won't carry over?

Who cares?! I can't imagine anyone not starting a reroll with this release ^^
When I couldn't sleep 2 nights ago, I fantasized about what class/race to roll this time.
As always, dual-wielding/archery/stealth/enchanting. Probably Khajiit but unsure.

Maybe my standards are way too fucking high but I didn't think this trailer is up to par with today's standards. Some scenes were just amateuristic. Also, that Corvo live-action mask when he jumps from the roof.. it just doesn't look as good as it should.

Tried to give Dishonored 1 another shot because I wanna get excited for Dishonored 2... But fuck is that game boring if you chose the ghost/stealthy/non-lethal approach. My. Fucking. God.

I've been rocking the 1st place on 60+ player matches. How? Heavy tank. I feel like there's a good reason to flame players who claim the Tank spot with a Light Tank or something similar. Proper use of the Heavy Tank trumps the Light Tank in every way, imo.

Good game. Having great fun, except so far I'm being fucked in the arsehole on foot. I realize that in this game, I prefer a hipfire shock-and-awe kinda player. The time it takes to go iron-sight is enough for the enemy (with their peculiar accuracy) to fuck me up...
Still need to find a good hipfire weapon.

Also, I had a Legendary weapon in a dropbox. Was that merely a skin though, or do weapons actually drop in these boxes?

I need you guys right now...

I'm between not caring enough to google research and caring enough to type this:

How the hell do I get coins or dropboxes or whatever? I'm leveling up but I'm not getting any stuff! I feel like I'm in a HORRIBLE disadvantage as I die during every single encounter with an enemy. I mean, my "shooter skill resume" says I'm above average and that's why I find it hard to accept many of the deaths I'm experiencing during BF1. I really miss the killcam because normally these show that inexplicable deaths are due to latency or dumb luck..

Too many times by now I had the enemy at a disadvantage and yet they just oneshot me with their crazy-as-fuck accurate weapon. If there's one thing I'm certain of is that my accuracy is way above average (my patience sucks ergo so do my tactical approaches) and I cannot accept a death against an enemy where I had the advantage over.

If anyone can shine some light on that or give me BF tips, I would greatly appreciate it.

I have noticed the same thing on occasion. I know I am not as fast as I use to be but at times I have the crosshair lined up and popping off rounds that appear to hit but when the enemy drops me it shows them at full health. What I do now is I drop from the server and find another server in the hopes that the lag or whatever is happening is gone. Usually it is. At first I was feeling like I had not even played the beta or the early access I was getting owned a lot. If you are older like me you will not be able to twitch like a young punk. So you have to out think them. Just adapt your style until you get into the zone. Using a pair of good headsets is vital too. Having the proper situation awareness is key. Headsets give you that edge against somebody using desktop speakers that are not surround sound and up loud.

As you level you get war bonds and can go into customization for each class to spend those bonds on unlocks. The weapon stats are sometimes not a direct reflection of how well the weapon will perform for you. Of course that depending on your playstyle. As you play each class and level it (separate from your overall level) you are granted access to more unlocks. So focus on a class you like before moving to another or use two or three of the four depending on how the round is playing out. I started playing mostly medic for obvious reason. First you can heal others and yourself. Second you can revive and third you get a nice unlock (forgot at which level) which is basically a sniper rifle that is semi auto and very accurate with little recoil while prone.

The crates are random drops at the end of every round. Battlepacks are mostly crap. Yeah, they make your weapons look cooler but are pretty much just texture garbage to get you to care about winning one. I bought the pre-order and out of my first ten packs I had three duplicate. So duplicates can be sold for scraps which in turn can buy you another Battlepack. LoL, WTF! I am not kidding. Don't worry about them just have fun. Slick must be playing night and day to get that may random loot crates (battlepacks) I rarely get one. I think top performers get a crate automatically and since it sounds like he is using some elite skillz he is getting one quite often. Good for him but as he also stated they are a bit of a joke. Like I said just have fun, get use to your weapons, and kits. Then the points/levels will start to come in and more war bonds will drop too. Getting accustomed to your weapons is also important so take the time to get to know them. The stats give you info on bullet and damage drop at range while comparing the weapon unlocks to what you already have in your possession.

I had a great moment early on the Italian map with the light tank way up top on the side of the mountain in the open taking on dozens of enemy troops below. Once they kill your ground support it is time to run. I had a sniper trying to use his K bullets to take me out so I charged him with the tank. I was very near exploding so I jumped out and stabbed him in the chest before jumping back into the tank, popping smoke, hitting the instant repair option which gives your tank thirty health, then driving off someplace safer to repair the tank. It was one of those moments in gaming we all live for. Those don't always come around as much as they use to.

Maybe we should form a Blue's News older gamers brigade?

Thanks a lot for the time you put into your answer! It sounds crazy but I hadn't figured out the entire warbonds thing. Right now, without having started up BF1 yet after reading your answer, I have no freaking clue where the character page is to use the warbonds for upgrades. I can blame myself for this, or it's actually a sign of bad menu design...

That thing you described with your tank sounded awesome! I had a similar moment with a heavy tank on the map with the tight city streets: at a bridge a few squads of ours were pinned down, but I managed to "sneak" around with my tank. I came around the corner and I saw all those cute little backs toward me. I wiped them out.
Someone cheered on teamchat <3

Anyway, I'll get back in BF1 soon and try to spend those warbonds!

PS: the Bluesnews group is a good suggestion, but I'm afraid some of us will suffer from high latency since we're all spread out over Europe and the US here, mostly

Overwatch Season 1: Rank 63
Season 2: Rank 2600 (other ranking system)

As Overwatch players here know, these ranks are pretty good.

Reason I'm saying this: I can't seem to hit fuck all in Battlefield.

Maybe TB was a bit too harsh, but if his points about how terrible the itemization actually is in this game then I am fine with requesting a refund. I have absolutely no interest in constantly having to stop playing to look at every single useless item to see if I can get a 2% potential boost to DPS. His video gave me flashback nightmares to Diablo 3's launch with itemization, and legendary items. How absolutely useless, under powered and awful they are.

What I'm about to say sounds silly but: you're playing these games wrong. I think it's not the idea to compare every single item that drops with what you have. I only start to put real effort into comparing new loot with what I have when I feel I'm starting have a disadvantage over the enemies.
Naturally you shouldn't ignore the low percentage droprate lootdrops like legendaries or w/e.

Yeah, my post wasn't meant as a rant at you personally. It just surprises me some folks will write off a company when a game doesn't come to their platform of choice. Exclusives are nothing new...


It's no rocket science. R* games are the living proof that the PC community brings in some big bucks and R* has always been great at giving a zero fuck about it until they do (GTAV PC felt like a miracle). I'd like to hear their reason not to release a PC version other than "We like to milk!".
It's like an actual musical star not coming to his European fans because why the hassle if he can grow fat and rich in Amerkca as well. It's not charming.

"Then buy a console" is a no go for some of us. I, for one, play games for the immersion. To escape from reality now and then. Consoles with their controllers cannot give that to me. I need more than two thumbs and two fingers to get a sense that I'm playing the game and not the other way around.

This definitely won't be RDR for PC.

RDR2. Hopefully for PC as well but we know Rockstar by now: fuck the PC gamers in the butthole no matter how big a market they've proven to be. There will be a good to fair chance that in a year or two they'll decide to release RDR2 for PC, after having milked the console market.

Today I learnt, supposedly, Windows 10 and 144Hz displays are ubiquitous.

Whether you are at your grocery store, office, Taylor Swift concert or having an awkward shit at an airport... just stick your tongue out for about 3 to 4 seconds and then just try to taste something.
There's a good chance you're tasting Windows 10 and 144Hz displays in the air.


These last few days I'm thinking about what character to play. I keep coming back to stealth/bow/dual-wield/enchanting/lockpick. I tried that marketing viking character once but just melee/shield is boring.

I got it on console and from what im reading that's basically where you want to play it. Your better off enjoying this game on a couch like a movie.

Its got a really really good presentation and story, the soundtrack is top notch. Its generic gta style controls, so you take that for what its worth. The car driving is a step below gta, but not complete crap. None of the graphical glitches have been major (on console).

I would say its definitely rental material just for the story and presentation. Worth buying if you want to take your time finding all those.....extras. Gorgeous


I'm getting a Truman Show vibe now. If anyone else is gonna say the stody is good I'll start punching at the horizon hoping at some point I'm punching through a wall.

So far in Mafia 3 all I've been doing is making 3 people happy by putting my knife into AI-retarded idiots and stealing money, rinse, repeat. I'm still waiting for any actual story driven quests like the cool stuff the game started out with.

I hope this game is simply CRAZY HUGE and I'm actually still touching the surface, but after the Sitdown quest I get the impression it's not.

So far I'm terribly disappointed in Mafia 3. I keep waiting for the game to start; to get past the tutorial missions. Turns out what I se is what I'm actually getting.

Sure, taking over territory is cool. Killing thugs and destroying contraband to get to a big fish is cool. However, in some games (no examples off the top of my head atm) those are OPTIONAL SIDEQUESTS that would enhance your character's skills and fill your purse and stuff like that -- it wouldn't actually be the MAIN THING you have to do.

Where are the story driven quests? What the fuck is this?

Leave it to Redmask to spew some personal assault with literally zero basis someone's way. I can't imagine anyone falling for your omega male shit anymore tbh. It should go without saying that someone who is against the BLM movement ins't necessarily a racist. Thinking in absolutes is a juvenile attitude that is a stain on our community and our ability to communicate about shit that matters.

My problem with BLM is that it creates racism instead of fighting it.

This garbage again? Typical "Don't Rock The Boat" racism.

"Don't fight back against injustices, because your efforts are imperfect, and will just make the racism worse! Just wait it out or maybe write a meekly worded blog instead..."


Here's the thing, Black Lives Matter, and the black community in general, don't care about making casual racism by white Blue's News users worse. And rightly so. You're not in a position to make life worse for black Americans, so they don't give a shit what you think about them, or their movements.

They are concerned with institutional racism coming from the police. And they are absolutely successfully turning up the heat on the police in this country. There's more of a spotlight on police shootings than ever. It wasn't that long ago that a black man getting shot by the cops didn't even make the news. Shit, most white people getting shot by the cops didn't make the news. Now it's all over the news, and it's getting real attention. Body cameras are starting to become more widely used, and in some cases mandatory, and will only become more prevalent. Prosecutors are starting to become more willing to actually prosecute cops. There's still a long ways to go, but things are moving in the correct direction.

None of this would happen if people were just sitting quietly and not stirring the shit. Yeah, it's gonna upset some white folks, but that's a small price to pay.

Attitudes like yours implicitly support the status quo.

And I really have to wonder where the vehement opposition to BLM from white people comes from. I'm white, and they just don't bother me. Sometimes I think the stuff they do is silly, but it's black people trying to deal with problems facing the black community. It really doesn't affect me at all. Certainly not enough for me to get angry and say things like "Fuck BLM!"

Hell, I praise them for putting the police on blast. They have more spine than white people do when it comes to standing up for themselves against the cops.

If BLM actually gave a single shit about black lives then they would put their efforts in trying to fix their own fucked up community. When I'm talking about a fucked up community I'm talking about fatherless households because daddy is in prison and the staggering, sickening numbers of black-on-black crime.

BLM is a movement that is Black VS White, and "this time" not coming from the whites. When a black officer shoots a black person, BLM spokespersons will not mention the colour of the officer unless pressed. Nor do they give a shit about the actual numbers.

I'm the first to admit that police violence is a problem, but the problem isn't as black and white (pun intended?) as it is presented. First of all, according to the data, skin color has nothing to do with it (in fact, more whites are being killed by police).
Second of all, the hightened state police officers have to be in 24/7 due to America's retarded gun laws isn't taken into account enough. When a suspect DOES NOT COMPLY (which is the case in 99% of all police vitalities, don't you forget) and makes sudden movements, the chance of said suspect reaching for a piece is too high.
Thirdly, what people tend to forget is that there is ALWAYS a gun involved: the officer's gun. An officer doesn't know if he's facing a black belt or whatever. If the officer gets overpowered, his gun is in the hands of the person who's freedom was in his hands.

Sure, police needs better training. Sure, there are bad cops. But if you don't see that the demonization that's going on toward the police is a problem, then I really don't know what to say. Evidently, you fell for it. Cops are bad!

Do you just not play it cos the character you play as in charge of your own mafia is black?

Well ya said it , why does everything today have to be black or gay or free breast , just ain't into all this politically correctnes it ruins more than it helps Clown Nothing helps if ya force it onto people....nothing!

Playing a black guy in this context is very interesting. What I hate is the disclaimer at the start of the game, apologizing to nutjobs like all Black Lives Matter followers and SJW.

Imagine a history teacher apologizing for talking about slavery back in the days.

It seemed like a well worded disclaimer to me. Of course it triggered someone.

If it didn't upset someone who would say "nutjobs like all Black Lives Matter followers", it's doing history wrong.

Anyone who thinks that a player's character not being a straight white male is automatically political correctness is exactly the sort of person who would benefit as a human being exposed to more diversity.

The latter part is not what I'm saying. Read my post more clearly. As for BLM, I can understand it feels good to just hop on that boat and chant "black lives matter" along with its other members... since -- fuck me -- OF COURSE black lives matter. All human life matters. If you don't understand my disdain for BLM than that's solely due to your ignorance, so don't go all ad hominem on me. My problem with BLM is that it creates racism instead of fighting it. Have you heard any BLM spokesperson talk about the white people that get shot by police, for example? Of course they don't, because then they have to come with numbers which would completely destroy the movement.

Numbers like: 6% of the US citizens are black, 50% of the US murders are by blacks, and then most of them are black-on-black crime.
Or numbers like: 50% of the people that get shot by police are white.

Fuck BLM. It's a movement against equality.
