Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice VR Edition

Holy shit. I've been just so busy with the Beat Saber grind I've been neglecting to fire this game up. Was bored tonight, did a late random game thing. Man I'm glad I was forced to VR tonight. Seriously recommend picking this up. Holy shit its good. And its pretty as hell. Like wow.

Frostpunk will get a third scenario in the coming days.
I like it for the story-telling.

Watchdogs 2 was on sale so I picked that up. I loved the multiplayer in 1 so I got it solely for that and I'm enjoying it. I've some hilarious moments in the game so far. The game is to hack people, and then sorta hide from them for a few minutes while they try to find you. Kinda like hide and seek I guess. This one dude I hacked I accidentally got the cops chasing me, so I hopped in a cop car and turned the lights on and then pretended I was one of the cops chasing me. The poor guy was frantically searching for me but just never clued in I'd be one of the half dozen cops driving circles in a loop. I wish I could have recorded the whole thing it was pretty funny.

You know about nVidia shadow play Kracus?
Really handy for stuff like that. I've set mine to record the last 5 minutes of gameplay, so if something cool happens, I just hit a key and BLAM, moment saved.

I play on xbox one and I have my recording set to 30 seconds. I think it maxes out at 5 minutes, would be nice if it gave you the option when you hit record but instead of you have to exit the game and go to console settings to change it.

I think it caches quite a while back actually so you can get a recording back.

that's how I did the 3 or so recordings I actually wanted.
maybe it's still limited to 5 mins :shrug:

So I've been playing Monster Hunter: World for the past few weeks. I was shocked when I checked Steam and I had over 200 hours in it already. I didn't think I'd have so much fun grinding for new and better gear, even after the main story stuff was over and I hit the endgame. :up:

Yeah, I was really enjoying Monster Hunter World.
Then Destiny 2 Forsaken dropped, and I've been playing that pretty much constantly.
Need to tear myself away from it and get back to MHW.

Frostpunk gets a 3. scenario now.
Foremost it's a RtSG but the strategy factor is kind of low in how the game evolves, it's really more about telling stories. Or has been in the last two episodes. And the way those storires are told is just fantastic in my opinion.

I've been playing the .63 release of DayZ recently. I can say the new engine has definitely improved game mechanics and frame rates.

I've picked up Wolf: The Old Blood again after what I thought was a few months of not touching it. Turns out it was 18 months...

I will report back once I have done some meaningful play through.

Also myself and Lady Carlos have been giving the 2013 Tomb Raider another blast...and what a blast it is. Despite me not getting on with it when it first came out, I am very much enjoying blasting through it and collecting shit. I love collecting things and this has things aplenty, so good news for me. We are enjoying it that much we have ordered Rise of the Tomb Raider too :D

They released this on xbox one recently so I downloaded the trial to give it a shot... The words, absolute garbage came to mind.

Funny, I just started playing Rise. I was one of the people who liked Tomb Raider 2013, even tho it hardly had any tomb raiding.

Rise... eehh it's ok. It has two major flaws I feel; one: it tried to compensate for the lack of Tombing in the previous game by constantly giving you side missions, challenges and tombs to the point where it becomes a chore, and second the story is all about shooty shooty runny runny, which makes the aforementioned tombing way out of place. I have to save this and that before he and she dies! But first, 3 days of trudging through the wilderness in search of optional crypts and murals.
It makes for a stark contrast where the game has a hard time deciding if it wants to be an action game or a puzzle platforming collectathon. In my eyes it fails at trying to be both.

Started playing Indigo Prophecy known as Fahrenheit everywhere else in the world.

It has aged surprisingly well.

Depends... I have a one x and an OG Xbone setup side by side and I've run many games side by side. The one x has obviously better graphics and loads everything faster and probably has better framerates. If those things matter to you then yes, it's well worth it. If not, then I would pass. It made a big difference when I played PUBG as you'd be able to dive down, land and start looting instantly as all the buildings and weapons would load by the time your feet touched the ground while on the old xbox buildings wouldn't be fully loaded and would take 10 - 20 seconds to fully load making looting or entering buildings impossible.

My kids were playing Forza Horizon 4 yesterday and both started the game at the same time so they were roughly in the same spots in the game simultaneously so I could see quite a difference in the graphics as both were displaying the same scenes.

I bought Skyrim like 10 years ago or whatever... my 'puter was too shitty to run it. I think I got 1 or 2fps on the shittiest settings. While back my vid card ate shit so I slotted a new one in. Fast fwd another 2 years and I was poking around in Steam one day out of boredom and I saw Skyrim there, "aw shit I paid for this and never even got past the fucking opening scene, let's give it a whirl." Helluva drug.

It's gorgeous, the environments are very immersive.
I also like that there's different weather conditions and times of day, separate from the level you're in.
So one time you load the game and you're in a morning sunrise, the other time the same level is during a nightly storm.

I'm ordering one with a USB SSD

I've been thinking of getting an external drive as well. I've heard that the benefits of an SSD on an xbox one x is negligible. One redditor actually swapped his internal drive with an ssd and found that it actually increased load times. Either way, that extra space would be nice to have, I went through 1TB in a few weeks.

I've put a 2tb drive in my PS Pro and I used the 1tb drive for my normal PS4 (Spare room console).

I can see how Sony and MS can justify selling a 500gb drive in a console any more.

Bought a 2tb external like two years ago, not until now that's it's close to filling up.
I have a little under 200 games installed. It's only the big hitters that will cause problems on a 500gb drive (ie Forza, Halo MCC and such). Most games are around 6gb.

Add any DLC onto the mix and you're screwed
Any COD game is 60+ gig
Wolf games are 40gig

Eh its only the triple A E3 showcase games that are that big. FFXV takes the cake with 75gb.

I was curious myself and sorted by Size. Average seems to be 10gb. I'm a completionist meaning I pretty much have all dlc for all games I own. To be fair I don't have any of the 4K stuff installed tho as I have a 1st gen X1.

Still, surprised that the drive lasted so long tbh.
